It’s the pesky things that cause you trouble today. One way or another, routine goes to pot. With the stars negatively targeting your work and wellbeing zone it means that either physically, mentally or metaphorically, something could trip you up. But not now that you’re aware! Call me to hear when passion fires your veins!


Be careful who you mix with today. Wherever you turn, someone’s generating emotional drama. A colleague throws a wobbly, a child throws a tantrum, an appliance throws a fuse. How you deal with the situation very much depends on how good you are at catching… Call me to hear when to avoid spicy food upsetting your system.


Watch out, Gemini. Despite your flexibility and adaptable nature, this isn’t going to be the easiest of days. Either friends will let you down or family affairs could have a sting in the tail. So, you know what? Do your own thing today. Call me to hear when domestic plans are likely to come unstuck.


Some people believe problems come in threes. There’s no scientific basis to this. But you have had domestic snags of late and perhaps today’s hiccup is just another one.

Finances could prove disappointing. Perhaps a raise or bonus you’ve been expecting gets put on ice. Or perhaps the bank manager writes to tell you that your loan application has been turned down. Don’t get despondent, there’s a reason for everything. And a way around every problem. Call me to hear when you’re wise just to chill out and relax.


Some days, things jog along smoothly. Other days are nothing but hassle. Today is one of the latter kind. Yes, you may find that people and situations are erratic and will lead you a merry dance. Well, life would be boring without the odd challenge, wouldn’t it? Call me to hear when you and a friend could end up at cross purposes.


Run for cover, Scorpio, and stay well out of the line of fire. There’s nowt as queer as folk, they say and, given today’s surprising events, you’ll appreciate the truth of that saying. Better not say the wrong thing otherwise people will go off like a fire cracker. Call me to hear when it’s best not to make any fixed social arrangements.


Brace yourself for a day of choices and challenges. The more you get on with officials, the better. But, if you have one of those love-hate kind of relationships, what takes place today could make you see red. Be philosophical, Sagittarius – that’s what you’re known for, isn’t it?

Slow down and think things through carefully before charging in. Overseas developments, news from faraway, legal, literary or educational matters are sending up a red signal. Home and family, too, will need extra attention. But it’s how you react that’s important. Think on. Call me to hear when you need to keep your wits about you when shopping.


Don’t rush around, lift heavy objects or mess about with faulty electrical equipment. If you do, there’s a chance that some damage could be done. It’s one of those days when your natural poise and equilibrium seem to desert you. It’s only temporary. Call me to hear when to avoid a serious misunderstanding with your partner.


Money raises a red flag for you today, Pisces, warning you not to get too carried away when shopping or too free with your spending on other people. Concentrate on romance and go back to basics to remind you what your relationships are all about. Call me to hear when an agreement isn’t worth the paper it’s written on.
