Aries March 21 - April 19 Being generous is not the same as making wild promises that you cannot keep due to cash restraints, so proceed with caution. There is some moving in store for you and you might make some key connections in another language. The third time a question is asked the answer will be yes! Look to an old friend for very sincere advice in a small crisis. Lucky colour blue.

Taurus April 20 - May 20 Loyalty demands actions not just words and you must lead the way if you are to earn loyalty in the future. A promising month where romance and passion are concerned and you could find a soulmate in a most unlikely setting. There are legal agreements to be finalised and money set aside some time ago can be shared out at last. Lucky day 19th.

Gemini May 21 - June 20 Keep in mind that strong mindedness and just being plain stubborn are two different things! Your teamwork skills are called into play but don't be tempted to swap co-operation for criticism. The power of love brings a wonderful mix of duty and passion and could even make your mates a little jealous. Lucky colour green.

Cancer June 21 - July 22 Make sure a surprise will be welcome before you go to the trouble of organising it. A sporting opportunity brings you the chance to try something that you always wanted to experience. In work a new sense of positive progress brings satisfaction and a good deal of praise and recognition for a job well done. Romance may seem a little dormant but the flame will re-kindle. Lucky day 20th.

Leo July 23 - August 22 You work well as a motivator and your leadership qualities are appreciated but remember being strong is not the same as being totally bossy! Time to get false friends out of your life and focus on the ones who really matter. A surge of energy, emotion and inner magic melt your resolves and it could be an exciting month in the passion stakes. Lucky colour red.

Virgo August 23 - September 22 Give yourself more time to chase a personal goal or to spend time with someone special - this is more important than chasing other illusions. Friends disagree with your holiday plans but they will come to realis that yours is the more tempting idea after all.

Libra September 23 - October 22 Love and lust are two different things - time to decide which is which! A good time to move towards a new qualification and you get an opportunity to start gathering information immediately.

Lucky colour yellow.

Scorpio October 23 - November 21 Work and love may clash and you must extricate one from the other for the sake of your own happiness. Find your own path and try to break free from unfair restrictions imposed by colleagues. A sense of optimism and calm control pervades making your decisions more beneficial for everyone. An early Christmas party could bring new love prospects! Lucky day 22nd.

Sagittarius November 22 - December 21 >A career change you have dreamt about could soon be yours and success follows when you support a friend's creative ideas.

Capricorn December 22 - January 19 A long-standing friendship could be your path to success and an offer presents from a very unexpected source.

You could try something different with an alternative skills group and you can impress them with your leadership qualities. Family tensions get sorted. Lucky day 12th.

Aquarius January 20 - February 18 Friendship cannot be bought by how much you spend on gifts so set a budget for future spending. You are closer than ever to a long-awaited goal and your search for support finally pays off. Family money arrives in a rather mysterious way and you should ensure that everyone gets the same benefit from it. Entering a contest pushes you towards a prize zone and gives you renewed interest in competitions. Lucky colour white.
