Watch out for some strong arm tactics today, Aries. Could be the boss tries to put extra pressure on you and lumber you with more work. It will be hard to fend off but, if you use charm as your offensive, you’ll win the day. Call me to hear why you can’t afford to skip the details at work.


If at first you don’t succeed, try and try again. That’s a motto close to every Taurean’s heart and especially apt today. Are you being too dogmatic in your attitude or approach? Step back and look at your situation from a distance. Only then can you judge. Call me to hear when you could be throwing good money after bad.


Is it you who’s trying to reform a certain someone, or is someone turning the pressure on you? Either way, a rebalancing is needed.

Call me to hear when you must avoid a communication breakdown with someone close.


People have a lot to say today but who’s pulling the strings? There seems to be a tussle of some sort going on and it’s making you uncomfortable.

Missing holidays, sunshine and faraway places? There’s a wistfulness in your solarchart today that’s flagging up regrets. If retail therapy is your way of cheering yourself up, you’d be advised to steer clear today. Money needs careful and judicious handling. You can’t afford to take risks. Call me to hear when you must resist buying a pig in a poke.


Keep your head down today, Libra. You know you don’t like ill-feelings and confrontations and, since there could be quite a bit of that around, you’d be wise to stay out of the cross-fire. Home? It’s still undergoing change. But now you’re beginning to see an end result. Call me to hear when you mustn’t let your heart rule your head.


Dealings with others, conversations and interactions are likely to jar today, Scorpio. So it’s a question of tact and diplomacy that’s required. If, as it appears, you’re swamped with work, prioritize. There are times when you have to be ruthless. This is one of those days. Call me to hear when you must be crystal clear when dealing with money and colleagues.


Because being a Sagittarian means you were born under a lucky star, you do sometimes like to take a risk or a gamble. Usually, though, (and contrary to appearances) it’s a carefully calculated risk.

It’s not all plain sailing, nor all plain to the eye over the next twenty-four hours. So engage your sixth sense and keep your antennae fully extended. You can sometimes be overly controlling. But if you are today, you may find resistance. Rein back. Call me to hear when wool-gathering could get you into trouble.


You can’t always get what you want, Aquarius, no matter how hard to wish it. So why not settle for a compromise? People are rather willful today which is why you need to choose your words with care. Watch that blind spot, especially if you’re driving. Call me to hear when you’re torn between duty and desire.


Needs must, Pisces. And at the moment what you need is to sort out your finances before you become overwhelmed. Take a deep breath, roll up your sleeves and face the challenge.
