Aries March 21 - April 19 Suspicions about a friend's motives turn out to be unfounded and you will both laugh at the ideas you nurtured. You are in love with life, your ideas are very smart and even a hard-to-please boss is happy. Time to let go of a small trace of envy after an apparent push-over in sport - go out and play the game for enjoyment. Foreign travel could be less expensive than you think. A team you are part of have a good chance of winning so long as everyone has the same answer book. Lucky colour yellow.

Taurus April 20 - May 20 An employer will admire the way you handle a sticky situation so effectively and your calm reaction will resonate for a long time. A music venue could bring you a new friend but watch out for any emotional baggage they may have - it will be your unique task to help them tune into themselves again. You should watch out for a TV show prize and try to bring it within your grasp. Lucky day 29th.

Gemini May 21 - June 20 An extension to the family circle, even if only temporary, may prove to be a bit of a strain but you could easily transform this newcomer and turn them into somebody useful. Your energy and enthusiasm are infectious and friends will want you to party more than before. Check through an old savings scheme and see if it has paid dividends yet. A love match is highly likely either for you or a best friend. Lucky colour green.

Cancer June 21 - July 22 Opportunities at work need to be examined closely in case they are not all that the seem to be, but you can still reach for the stars if you want to. A matchmaking idea sounds wild but the results are wonderful, although not to be taken too seriously. An urge to travel still lingers and it could be a good time to keep a promise to visit a former friend who has invited you many times. Entertaining is high on your 'to do' list this month. Lucky day 14th.

Leo July 23 - August 22 Work on a talent that you feel you have neglected and there could be a cash reward if you develop it sufficiently. A family event from the past comes under scrutiny but a good honest debate can bring a lot into the open and the talking could serve to bring people closer afterwards. Someone in your social circle has a strong attitude and now might be a good time to dilute it! Treat yourself to a short break at short notice. Lucky colour navy.

Virgo August 23 - September 22 By chance you discover that a most unexpected person is keen on you but the question you have to answer is what you want to do about it? Job skills get a boost and new plans propel into action, bringing some extra work - but nothing you can't manage. A recent newcomer to the family is quite adamant about their wishes and you may have to pour calm over troubled waters. A wedding invitation poses more problems than what you are going to wear to it! Lucky day 19th.

Libra September 23 - October 22 An issue of truth over ambition is very important and you must give and expect real honesty all round. Don't waste time with regrets but make a decision to try again - you will find it to be the best approach, especially at home. Plans to work with friends could be very lucrative, provided they all do their fair share. The initial 'L' could stand for more than love as far as your plans are concerned. Lucky colour white.

Scorpio October 23 - November 21 Your work is energised by a new idea which actually comes from a rival associate, but from that, all kinds of offers could come your way. A family cash deal needs a firm hand from you and it is vital to ensure that a fair deal is given to all. A big decision in love, even if not for yourself, but for a friend who has to make choices. An opportunity to travel will be a welcome distraction at a time when there is a lot going on with family issues. Lucky day 20th.

Sagittarius November 22 - December 21 You could find yourself at an unusual destination one weekend but a chance encounter with a new friend may prove to be a life changer for the future. A quiet conversation about love leads you to different territory and you like what you see. An ingenius idea in work will get action and a lot of delayed deals suddenly start to move again. Choosing a new outfit for an important social gathering has hilarious consequences. Lucky colour red.

Capricorn December 22 - January 19 Stand firm this month with your highest hopes for love and they will happen. Your name could crop up on a lucky list, much to the envy of an old rival! At work your natural talent is recognised and duly rewarded even if it is threatened by lack of organisation on someone else's part. The world is your stage when it comes to a mid-month performance so you must give it your absolute best if you want to make a lasting mark on your target audience. Lucky day 22nd.

Aquarius January 20 - February 18 An odd stroke of destiny re-unites a divide in the family and this reconciliation will mean a lot to your peace of mind. A letter you receive could take a relationship into an exciting new direction. Find time for an old pal who, although a little down on their luck at the moment, could be your saving grace when you need a friend. A fresh opportunity to earn cash doing something you really enjoy. Lucky colour purple.

Pisces February 19 - March 20 Your ambition zone is very strong this month and there is almost nothing you can't achieve if you really put your mind to it. A friend displays a talent you had not noticed in them before and this could also work to your advantage. You may have to take the risk of it interfering with a romantic opportunity but your career goal is uppermost in your mind and you should be happy with the outcome whichever way the pendelum swings! Lucky day 15th.
