Virgo
You’re aiming high now and with star portents backing you, it won’t be long before you’re making a huge leap forward in achieving a desired goal. But tread lightly today and don’t take advantage of the very people whose support you need. Refuse to shop late afternoon. Call me to hear when to take charge.

Aries
Chances are that someone will either refuse to go along with your plans or will actively try to move the goal posts this morning. Your mission – which brings a sense of achievement by late afternoon – is to work around the obstacles while keeping everyone sweet. Call me to hear when to make a fresh start on that project.

Taurus
You’re getting restless, Taurus, and not concentrating. If you don’t focus, your mind will play tricks on you, make you slip up on important details, miss appointments or forget procedures. Not everything will go to plan this morning but you make up for it this afternoon. Call me to hear when the fun begins!

Gemini
Whether you’re buying new equipment or shelling out on the kids, the upshot is that you’ll be digging deeply into your savings and, given today’s cosmic climate, you probably won’t be satisfied with the results. So, if you get the impulse to spend – just keep walking. Call me to hear when to spearhead the action.

Cancer
Property or household expectations may either disappoint or fall short of the mark today. At home, check with your partner and other people you live with before you go making changes. Avoid digging in your heels – it could be difficult to get yourself unstuck again. Call me to hear when to put that idea across.

Leo
If you have any misgivings it could be because your logic and intuition are at odds with each other. If you fall into the trap of regretting the past or feeling sorry for yourself, you’ll blind yourself to the good things you’ve got going for you. Be positive. Call me to hear when to make that financial decision.

Libra
Are your responsibilities getting to you? When there’s still so much left to do it’s virtually impossible to let matters tick over even though you’ve done plenty enough already for this week. Sew up what you can by early afternoon, then take the rest of the day off. Call me to hear when the penny drops.

Scorpio
Does the prospect of travel fill you with dread, today? If so, reassure yourself by checking over all the details and leaving nothing to chance because, as you know, you Scorpios like to be in control. Clouds do have silver linings sometimes – all you have to do is believe. Call me to hear when to take the lead with the group.

Sagittarius
You’ve had a full week but there’s still plenty to get on with before the weekend comes. Today, get your head around finances, settle bills and balance the books. Even if you draw a blank, it means that’s one dead-end you won’t need to waste time pursuing. Call me to hear when to take the helm at work.

Capricorn
Some days you can’t seem to win, whatever you do. Today is one of those days when you simply can’t please all of the people all of the time. Partnerships are still rocky and a negative mood isn’t going to help. Late afternoon lightens the load. Call me to hear when to make that move.

Aquarius
You have a frantically busy day ahead of you. Your work schedule quadruples and you need to make decisions at the drop of a hat. No matter how taxing legal, travel or educational matters might be – just push on. Then reward yourself with time out this afternoon. Call me to hear when to strike that deal.

Pisces
With so much excitement and high spirits around you this morning, Pisces, staying in control – and keeping the costs down – will feel as if you’re wading through treacle! Just do enough to stay one step ahead. Partnerships bring many compensations and a comforting evening, too. Call me to hear when love shines.
