As long as you’re in no hurry or in any desperate need to make contact with certain people, you should find this is an enjoyable day. Get in the holiday mood and spend time on creative pursuits or with the children. You’re back in the frame tomorrow. Call me to hear when your misgivings are unfounded.


Domestic life is rich, warm and rewarding. Whether it’s handicrafts that take your interest, gardening, redecorating or hosting visitors, time spent at home these days makes you happy. Making contact with friends may be a problem, however. Try again tomorrow. Call me to hear when a social plan fizzles to nothing.


It’s one of those days when news, views, greetings and post put a smile on your face which, after the stresses and strains of the last couple of weeks, comes as a welcomed relief. Getting involved in neighborhood events, too, is pleasing. The job takes second place. Call me to hear when to be on the lookout for mistakes at work.


You’re in a proactive mood today, Cancer, and feeling good. So good, in fact, that a reward may be in order. And since finances are looking rosy, you may be planning a shopping spree. However, the stars warn against spending today and recommend Thursday instead. Call me to hear when you must double-check travel times.

Working from home, behind the scenes or just quietly on your own gets best results and at the end of the day makes you feel satisfied with your progress. Romance? Intimate words and private endearments warm your heart and stoke the embers of desire. Call me to hear when you shouldn’t sign that contract.


Even though you’re hard at work and demands are many, this should turn into a socially vibrant day. Perhaps you’re mixing business with pleasure, are involved in a creative project or have a pleasant event lined up. Chances are, an old friend is back in touch. Call me to hear when you must double-check the details.

You won’t need to try too hard at work today, Scorpio, given that Venus is surrounding you with a magnetic aura. Great if you’re giving a talk, presentation or demonstration. Also good if you’re involved in high-level talks or at an interview. It’s a day to shine. Call me to hear when you can’t afford to trust your luck.


Love follows you on the road, Sagittarius, which is perfect if you’re off on holiday or just taking some time off. However, if you’re making bookings or arrangements, be prepared to reschedule later on. Your creative ideas are picked up and find favor by those faraway. Call me to hear when a domestic arrangement falls apart.

Joint assets and affairs are positively highlighted today, Capricorn, and should bring reassurance. However, given today’s cosmic line-up, investing money or starting savings schemes are not recommended. Best postpone financial dealings and decisions until Thursday. Call me to hear when you can’t trust what you’re told.


How are you feeling today, Aquarius: attractive, loved, admired? Given your stars, you should be! If you’re attached, partners are especially warm and responsive. If single, you’re putting out all the right pheromones. Business? Though people are agreeable, don’t sign contracts today. Call me to hear when a purchase won’t be worth the money.

Call me to hear when a promise comes unstuck.
