Deciding on whether to invest in a creative or an exotic venture mustn’t become a chore, and don’t let someone with a frugal streak discourage you from doing what suits you. Do your sums and if all’s well, go ahead. Have everything in place by late September, or Mercury confronting Pluto and Saturn may cause hitches.
Libra: 24 September – 23 October
Push ahead when your instincts tell you that a particular deal may be of great benefit, even if some consider it controversial. Ensure that checks and balances are in place, and persuade everyone that you know what you’re doing. Someone who has appeared evasive merely wants to protect you from the unknown.
Scorpio: 24 October – 22 November
At first, you won’t be too interested in taking on a fairly big role in the outside world. Gradually though, you’ll weigh up the benefits involved and realise that you’re in danger of missing out quite badly. Never forget that those who think this is a perfect fit for you usually know what they’re talking about.
Workmates or friends may try to dissuade you from approaching a complicated problem in a way they consider wild and wacky, but your intuition will tell you it’s worth taking a slight risk. As you reflect on similar episodes in the past, you’ll wonder if you’ve sometimes played far too safe a game—to your cost.
Capricorn: 22 December – 20 January
Having missed out on travel and face-to-face get-togethers, you’ll be keen to reconnect with people in a relaxed, informal way. Suggestions made by several of them will arouse your curiosity and encourage you to come up with ingenious ideas of your own. You could be entering a whole new phase of your life.
Aquarius: 21 January – 19 February
Your need to drive a situation forward quickly and energetically may unnerve others. If you find yourself taking your foot off the gas, don’t feel like you’re giving up. You’re merely responding to an inner voice reminding you that slow, steady progress has far more long- term benefits than a race to the finish.
Pisces: 20 February – 20 March
While you may not mind companions or someone special joining you for a treat or celebration, they mustn’t invade your space entirely. Let a Sun-Pluto alliance help you access that part of you that can come across as entirely fair but firm. You shouldn’t have to feel like either a victim or a bully.
Unbeknown to you, a peer or pal will want to implement changes that could interrupt your work routine or quite possibly threaten your peace of mind. Rather than overreact, you should ask pertinent questions and come up with compromises that suit the both of you. Try hard to preserve the relationship rather than risk a major falling-out.
Taurus: 21 April – 21 May
Much as you hate rebuking others for stepping out of line, it cannot be avoided. A Uranus-Venus set-to will alert you to the fact that a family matter is being mishandled and it cannot continue. You have no option but to act, for the sake of everybody concerned. The positive outcome will make it worthwhile.
Gemini: 22 May – 21 June
While you have the right to voice your opinions on joint financial, personal or domestic issues, you mustn’t be heavy-handed. You may feel invincible, but you’re not. Share your thoughts and feelings, but respect the views of those who deserve to be treated as equals.
Cancer: 22 June – 23 July
Manage your expectations when colleagues or associates fail to provide support, or are not as effective as they should be. Retrograde Mars will give you a feeling of being disempowered just when you want to be firing on all cylinders, but be patient. You’ll get there in the end.
To keep the peace, you’ll avoid discussions about how much you’re expected to contribute to an intense arrangement. But if left unexpressed for too long, your resentment will seep into relationships. Get your main grievances off your chest, or a mighty clash could occur.
