ARIES (Mar 21 - Apr. 20)

I know you have a few personal doubts. Who wouldn't? However, you now have a chance to make a handsome amount of money. But how? I think the answer will be revealed within three weeks, so be patient. An emotional break with the past will be essential.

TAURUS (Apr. 21 - May 21)

It's all happening. Stunning relationships between planets like the Moon, Jupiter and Saturn will wake you up if nothing else does. I can promise you that very soon you'll be a new person. I'd also like to advise you that everything depends on how and when you say your piece.

GEMINI (May 22 - June 21)

Venus is a good enough ally to have in times like these. By that I mean that you'll need every friend you have when the missiles start flying. Perhaps you can talk a bit of sense into people who seem determined to make the worst of a bad job.

CANCER (June 22 - July 23)

This is not the easiest of weeks to indicate what's what and who is who. However, at a guess I'd say that you'll give as good as you get. Just remember that to be a good general you must have a strategy, and that to win every move you make must be absolutely faultless.

LEO (July 24 - Aug. 23)

Your financial stars are looking stronger by the day, which should come as some consolation. You see, employers, partners, relations and just about everyone you know will be unreliable, irascible and utterly contradictory. You'll need the patience of a saint, and that's just what you'll get!

VIRGO (Aug. 24 - Sept. 23)

It will be your job to supply the sticking plaster. Granted, you may feel mildly miffed or offended, but that doesn't change the fact that you must remain responsible. Money matters may be resolved after the next weekend, perhaps when somebody with more experience enters the frame.

LIBRA (Sept. 24 - Oct. 23)

You have a great deal to be thankful for, not least of which is that Venus is in such a protective position. Overseas contacts and distant connections may be beneficial, and anything to do with higher education looks set to do well. Plus, your many efforts should be rewarded.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24 - Nov. 22)

The Sun is but one of four planets which are shortly to send the world into a spin. At times like this it is always best to remember that yours is the sign of the healer. You may channel subtle cosmic energy into creative directions and counter the angry influences of your partners and colleagues.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 - Dec. 22)

Oh, for the wisdom of a Sagittarian! Jupiter, your planetary ruler, is currently holding the world together, which means that you must come up with the answers wherever and whenever you see children or colleagues going in for a spot of mindless conflict. You may be the perfect peace-maker!

CAPRICORN (Dec. 23 - Jan. 20)

Would you believe it if I said you occupied a commanding position? Well, strange as it may seem, you are the instigator of the week's unusual happenings. You also hold most of the solutions, because only you have any idea of what is lined up for the next two years.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 - Feb. 19)

Sometimes we astrologers look ahead and say that the world will never be the same again. I can't say whether the changes in your life over the next two months will be bumpy or smooth. What I can promise is that when you look back on this period in your life, you will see how incredibly significant it all was.

PISCES (Feb. 20 - Mar 20)

Forget the fact that astrologers tell you how soft you can be, when it seems that you can be as tough as the next person! This is no time to be squeamish. You'll be rushed off your feet, partly with fresh chores, but also with people asking you what's going on!


It's a remarkable year. To start with, a series of decisive planetary alignments is once again putting your powers of concentration and ingenuity to the test. The ebb and flow of relationships will be crucial to your plans. Partners may seem to be opposing you, but their criticism will prove highly constructive and helpful. Disagreements will be based on emotion and instinct rather than on reason, and advice may be wide of the mark. The answer is to rely on yourself, not to expect too much from offers of help, but to make use of your skills and contacts wherever possible. If you are as astute as your reputation suggests, there is much commonsense underlying your way-out ideas. You realise that, open and friendly as partners may be, if you give in to their demands now you will have no cards left to play. This is why you must be firm and only go forward to a compromise in all personal matters once the issues are crystal clear. Then you can be magnanimous and forgive those who have offended you. You will then end the coming twelve months with your status and prestige massively enhanced.
