Weekly Horoscope

  • Virgo

    One of your skills is your ability to do the right thing in the right place at the right moment. Every time in your life brings its appropriate strategy. Your best plan is to seize the moral high ground. This doesn’t mean being pompous but setting an example by your behaviour. (courtsey: Peter Vidal)

  • Aries

    You feel a little too emotional around this time of year because the Sun is playing a challenging role. Remembering that a little learning is a dangerous thing, you’d be silly to worry about your prospects on the basis of false information. If you have any doubts about personal matters then slow down and give yourself plenty of time to think. (courtsey: Peter Vidal)

  • Leo

    All is changing in the celestial realms. The Moon is sweeping through intimate reaches of your chart so before the month is out, you’ll have a much better idea of where current personal schemes are heading. You’ll be at the centre of highly productive, innovative changes at work, and you’ll need to be on the ball. (courtsey: Peter Vidal)

  • Cancer

    Take advantage of a stimulating planetary line-up to break your normal routine and try something different. There may also be some serious decisions to be made and loose ends to be tied up, especially if you’re still at the planning stage. The good news is that a family goal is finally coming within your reach. Relax and enjoy it. (courtsey: Peter Vidal)

  • Gemini

    You are famous for knowing exactly what is going on. Your normal familiarity with the facts is turned on its head this week, even though you could be much more convinced than usual that you know exactly what you’re talking about. It may be no more than wishful thinking. Cash questions will be answered within the next three weeks. (courtsey: Peter Vidal)

  • Taurus

    Sometimes you just have to accept that life is mysterious. It is true, that younger relations seem to have their finger on the pulse and can spot the truth much better than any adult. Listen to all those immature statements and avoid the tendency to laugh, for they may contain a core of truth which will do you a great deal of good. (courtsey: Peter Vidal)

  • Libra

    A very helpful planetary pattern is now coming into view, and you’ll benefit in ways which may not be obvious at first, but will become clear quite soon. Past efforts are about to pay dividends, and you’ll be overjoyed when a partner eventually concedes that you were right all the time. (courtsey: Peter Vidal)

  • Scorpio

    Your social stars suggest that this is a good time to make the most of new contacts. If you’re planning career moves, use your intuition, and think extremely carefully about the causes and consequences of your actions. Please avoid an unnecessary clash with authority, as you may come off worse! (courtsey: Peter Vidal)

  • Aquarius

    Monetary matters require top consideration, and there is some risk of a loss. However, in your case the signs will soon be profoundly favourable, especially if property deals or home improvements are underway. Family members will back you, but only if you tell them the truth. (courtesy: Peter Vidal)

  • Capricorn

    The fact that your stars will become a little less tense over the coming few weeks doesn’t mean that they’re any less powerful. Indeed, you should find that events, and other people, gently nudge you towards taking a surprisingly adventurous course. There is much to gain, and little to lose, so plan your course of action well. (courtesy: Peter Vidal)

  • Sagittarius

    You can aford tof move forward with hope in your heart. Your professional planets are now reaching the last of a peak of extraordinarily powerful waves, each of which has promised to lift your achievements higher than before. It is absolutely vital that you push your emotional ambitions to the limit. (courtesy: Peter Vidal)

  • Pisces

    There are times when heavens reward you for good work, and this should be one of them. Your romantic stars are profound and very specific. Two of the most rewarding things you can do are write letters and make phone calls. At work, a setback is followed by a rapid advance. (courtsey: Peter Vidal)
