Aries March 21 - April 19 A wonderful time to establish a new zest as regards your career and ambition, but you aren't likely to find it hiding behind the potted plants in your office! A new career path or opportunity could present itself and make sure your hands are out to grab it in good time. No time for procrastination on this one. This month is a dream time to make some transformations around your goals, in both work and love. A relationship you thought was insignificant could develop more seriously and you may find yourself dealing with new levels of responsibility. Only one word of caution in all this ... beware of any stress from all the resulting changes in your life. Lucky colour red.

Taurus April 20 - May 20 If you are feeling a little oppressed you can find ways to broaden your horizons, perhaps by enrolling in an education program or joining a club or other social outlet. The time is right for you to lighten up especially if you find yourself going down a negative path. Try not to be too hard on yourself and don't wish you could figure out every last piece of the equation, when that's not remotely possible right now. Someone you've already been in a relationship with may surprise you by laying all the cards on the table and asking for a more serious commitment. Lucky number 17.

Gemini May 21 - June 20 This month communication might feel a little strained, so be careful when broaching sensitive topics with friends and loved ones. If you've been carrying more than your fair share of the workload, you may need to reach out and ask for some crucial help. The days of doing it all on your own are over and you may see the writing on the wall and recognise a source of stress that's bringing you down. You could experience a changing of the guard with friendships or a bit of a reshuffe within a team of colleagues. This is not a time to shy away from social invitations and don't be surprised if you get an extra helping of attention from loved ones and strangers alike. Lucky colour green.

Cancer June 21 - July 22 A colleague may try to benefit from your diplomacy, thinking their message will be better received if it's coming out of your mouth. You look set to begin altering your personal and professional life, as well as learning how to balance the two. Through trial, error and a few surprises, you'll figure out the right recipe for happiness and fulfillment. An interest in a mysterious character overtakes you, eventhough you know deep down this person isn't exactly the portrait of trustworthy . Though you pride yourself on having integrity, this may result in a test of your own boundaries. Lucky number 25.

Leo July 23 - August 22 A new role in work could bring on your secret inner control freak, the part of yourself you try to pretend doesn't exist! Despite your appearance of being all laid back, you can actually get very hot under the collar when things go amiss. As an aside from work, this could be an excellent time for a reunion with one of your oldest pals. At the end of the month, you might want to air your deepest feelings, or they might just come out in spite of you. If you're single, now is a great time for self-evaluation, perhaps looking at yourself and your habits in love with more objectivity. Lucky colour white.

Virgo August 23 - September 22 If the embers of your relationship seem to be fading, bring back the spark by engaging in shared activities and common hobbies together. But if you honestly believe you have to cut unhealthy ties, now might be the time to do it. Even if you normally have a harmonious relationship with colleagues who are senior to you, tensions with authority could become apparent now. If you have trouble sticking to a rigid schedule, why not add in extra time to cover all activities. Someone you meet now could be a particularly fruitful contact down the road. Lucky number 40.

Libra September 23 - October 22 Recent suspicions and uncertainty have left you thinking about shifting alliances but a lot of unsolved questions start to slot into place this month. In fact, when you start connecting all the dots, you may be quite surprised at the picture that emerges. You secretly want to be more independent, but fear hurting the feelings of others. Mid-month you finally decide to address some nagging issues, possibly with a female relative or friend. If you find it difficult to contain what's likely been brewing over a few months, you must balance your emotions, so that you don't take it to unwelcome extremes. Lucky colour purple.

Scorpio October 23 - November 21 You may need to upgrade your organisational systems, or you could lose a key support person, who is vital to your efforts at achieving your most cherished professional dreams. Work smarter, so that you can work harder on what really matters. Socializing can still be productive and you may need to remind yourself of that when you're tempted to skip an after-work gathering. While you may usually view these parties with a skeptical and dutiful eye, this month you could be pleasantly surprised. Lucky number 30.

Sagittarius November 22 - December 21 Maybe a colleague has been giving you the runaround, or you've had trouble keeping matters straight in your head. Your popularity is at an all-time high this month so it is not a time you can miss your mark. An unexpected outburst from a quieter colleague has caused plenty of fog and crossed signals. You will have learned from it that you can't always fix things for people, and actually, the best thing you can do is let them sort out their messes on their own. The last week of the month calls for some serious downtime, letting life and love unfurl at their own pace. Lucky colour grey.

Capricorn December 22 - January 19 You might discover that you need to get organised and deal with some details surrounding a pressing issue. As much as you like to be in the driver's seat, you're being asked to hand over the keys to someone else ... so do it! The more you loosen up, the more relief you'll experience. When it comes to excising destructive or addictive patterns from your life, some useful hidden information may come to light. A rocky patch in a relationship leaves you wondering if you can still work it out - or perhaps part ways on more honest and forgiving terms? Being truthful to yourself is key to your happiness and ultimate well-being. Lucky number 9.

Aquarius January 20 - February 18 A fairly important decision falls to you this month but rest assured that you're handling a situation whose time has come. It is also time to put the proper support team in place and to tighten the ship to make sure you've got the help that you need. It is not a crime to ease up and let others in, especially when you're confounded about important choices. During this time, it might be an idea to revamp the ways you manage stress. Are you too quick to please others or plagued by anxiety when you can't be all things to all men? Whatever worries plague you, do your best to dissolve them. If you've lost sight of your own jovial side, spending time with good friends might be just the trick. Lucky colour yellow.

Pisces February 19 - March 20 This is a good time to see your life as it is, and not just how you wish it could be. When it comes to revealing your own vulnerability, it's fine to let others glimpse a few of your fragile feelings. Let people earn your trust a little more, but be a little careful in case there may be someone who blabs your secrets to the world. Hope springs eternal in matters of the heart, and romantic as that sounds, it's not always a good thing. Never become so blinded by a person's potential that you fail to see if this person can really deliver the goods. Lucky number 15.
