|ARIES: If you can make your goals rather modest then you’ll probably get everything done really very well and get a bit of praise from others. But if you aim too high, or become too exuberant you could come unstuck. It’s all a question of attitude and approach. Backtrack if necessary too unpick mistakes and then push ahead. You are slowly moving towards a peak of success in your life but it would be a mistake to think you have all the answers just yet.|
|TAURUS: Despite having endurance and stamina, watch that you’re not straining your body too much or trying to force yourself to do things that you don’t want to do. Too much will power can sometimes make you push yourself past your limits. You are taking your responsibilities very seriously. Just don’t get too obsessed with thoroughness. Maybe it isn’t the right time to take life lightly but you can also go the other way and make it much more difficult for yourself than need be.|
|GEMINI: The people in your life who have some kind of hold over you, and could even fright-en you a bit – authority figures, parents, teachers, bosses – seem to be more of a nuisance than usual. You have ended up feeling rather discouraged. Stand up for yourself but do it tactfully. You can be a real stickler for fairness and justice at the moment. It stems from your strong concerns about creating a better society, and ensuring that everyone is able to live decently.|
|CANCER: Be cool, calm, sensible and you’ll find that you end up with a task very neatly and tidily done. Just stick to the straight and narrow, no matter what the distractions around you. This isn’t the time for frivolities or indulgence. Develop a sense of humour and lighten up. You are seeing the flaws and the disasters and forgetting to see the benefits around you. You may have more specialised tasks to handle but you can make life more difficult than it need be.|
|LEO: If you can be patient and knuckle yourself down to doing tiny little things in a rather meticulous kind of way, you’ll fare better. Try not to be erratic. You get dutiful for a while, then resentful and fly off the handle. You want to be in charge even in your love life or your social life at the moment, which may push away precisely those you want to be close. Try to be less rigid or formal. If you feel shy, say so.|
|VIRGO: There are times when throwing caution to the winds is for the best. But this really is not one of them. Be exceptionally meticulous and attentive to detail. If anything belabour the point and you will find in a few days time that you are really glad you did. You are taking family responsibilities seriously at the moment. But maybe you feel you are not getting enough nurturing yourself. Don’t put up barriers and cut you off from the warmth which you want.
|LIBRA: There is an old saying that anything which shoots up fast like plants growing in a swamp, wither just as quickly. Applied to life it means that persistent effort over time produces long lasting results. Don’t dash in expecting overnight miracles. You are priding yourself at the moment about seeing life as it is. But remember that being realistic is not always about looking for the inadequacies. Look for on the sunny side up as well. There are highly positive things around.|
|SCORPIO: Everything seems to be getting under your skin at the moment. But you feel the circumstances aren’t such that you can lose your tem-per, or get it all out into the open. Better by far to be discreet, and plough on steadily, and stay focussed. Concentrate on your long term goals and then immediate problems will seem smaller. You are working conscientiously at the moment to make and keep what you earn. You won’t be content unless your financial affairs are in order.|
|SAGITTARIUS: Leaping recklessly into telling other people exactly what you think of them in a rather over-abrasive kind of way may be all too tempting but it could backfire. It’s just not very easy at the moment to moderate what you are trying to say. You either under-do it or overdo it. You are approaching other people on first meeting with a great deal of caution and reserve now. You probably don’t waste words. Others may find you a touch chilly and rather mistrustful.|
|CAPRICORN: Try to keep your energy a little more under control. If you scatter off in all directions at work you will only end up hot and cross. You will find it is all very stop start. As soon as you try to shift into a higher gear you meet immoveable objects. So just move slowly. Saturn is now moving through the sign before yours. This suggests that though you should still be successful at this time there will be lessening of certain old ambitions.|
|AQUARIUS: Somehow you feel that the circumstances aren’t right for you to make much of an impression. Issuing ultimatums will not make any difference, so you just have to hold yourself back until the tide turns in your favour. You like to think of yourself as a responsible member of your community and really want to put a good deal of effort into helpful schemes. Draw closer to like minded people so that you can all pool your energy in some constructive way.|
|PISCES: The influences around now tend to make everyone rather grind and groan on a bit. Certainly life is not perfect. Indeed it may even be less perfect than usual. But what can you do? This is the way it is and once you accept the bottom line, then everything becomes easier to handle. Be solid, down-to-earth, be dutiful and you might even come out of the end of it with your halo polished. Your success when it comes will be built on solid preparations.
