There could be stormy water about today, Aries! Insincerity, extravagance and even some hypocrisy are all in your stars. With so many people to satisfy, you’re bound to feel torn. Just remember, you can’t please all of the people all of the time. So just do your best. Call me to hear when passion fires your veins!


Taureans aren’t necessarily team players. In fact, they often prefer to do their own thing in their own time. And today is typical of that. It’s the kind of day when, if you let them, everyone will call for your time and attention. Avoid that at all cost. Call me to hear when to avoid spicy food upsetting your system.


Spending time doing your own thing, or with your favorite loved ones, may mean avoiding a certain someone.

You’re usually a saver, Virgo, but you seem to have been going through an expensive period lately. Today, however, you really must take your finances in your own hands and don’t let anyone persuade you to part with cash. Tired? Just go to bed early! Call me to hear when you’re wise just to chill out and relax.


Walk away from trouble today, Libra. Now, you know you’re diplomacy personified and you’ll do anything for a quiet life. But even you will find it hard to escape the demands that people close to you impose. Pursue your personal goals. That’s where your energies lie. Call me to hear when you and a friend could end up at cross purposes.


Don’t ignore those alarm bells. If your body tells you to rest, rest. You’re under some pressure and, tempting as it might be to take on another challenge, you can’t afford to heap yet more work onto your lap. Everyone has a limit. Perhaps you’ve reached yours. Call me to hear when it’s best not to make any fixed social arrangements.


Sagittarians are born with big ideas. You know yourself you’re always bursting with big dreams, big schemes, big enthusiasm and big expectations.

You’re usually a cool customer, Capricorn, but you must try not to over-react. Perhaps the boss expects a lot, perhaps you’ve allowed jobs to stack up over your ears, or perhaps you’re needed at home. Just take a deep breath and follow the line of least resistance. Call me to hear when you need to keep your wits about you when shopping.


Everybody’s trying to slip through the slitheriness of today’s planetary aspects – you’re not the only one. So it will pay you to be a little more flexible. Rudeness will only lead to deadlock, especially so if money’s implied. Follow your integrity today. Call me to hear when to avoid a serious misunderstanding with your partner.


You’re doing it again: throwing all caution to the wind where your finances are concerned. Ever since Jupiter, the planet of extravagance settled in your money zone, it’s been spend, spend, spend.
