ARIES (March 21st – April 20th)
A chance phone call will help you get your social life back on
track. Don’t miss an opportunity to get together with a friend.
Romance. You might prefer it if your partner could be a little
view, however, for they do have your best interests at heart.
TAURUS (April 21st – May 21st)
may help you to see things in perspective. Once you have the
chance to understand both sides of the problem, the solution
will be easy. Romance. Your partner may be tricky to handle.
Be patient and show some consideration this week.
GEMINI (May 22nd – June 21st)
chance meeting may not be accidental, you will soon be seeing
more of this person. Romance
time and a kind word for everyone. Your good mood will help
to create the right atmosphere for a romantic get-together.
CANCER (June 22nd – July 23rd)
This will be an excellent time for getting a new project under
way. You will be surprised with how smoothly everything goes.
Romance. Time spent worrying what somebody thinks about
you will not bring you closer to that person. You need to take
action and speak to the person.
LEO (July 24th – August 23rd)
You may be a little defensive and a recent frustration may make
you reluctant to get involved in a certain situation. That would
be wrong, for you are only going to improve things if you take
the lead. Romance. Friends are vying for your attention at the
moment, but don’t let this get in the way of your love life.
VIRGO (August 24th – September 23rd)
You may still be worried about a recent event which you feel
could have been prevented. Don’t be too hard on yourself.
Try to rise above this and get on with your normal routine.
Romance. There may be tension with another member of
your family. You should both become less judgmental.
LIBRA (September 24th – October 23rd)
A call from out of the blue may cheer you up. This person will
want to talk and you will have to point out that you do have
other things to do, although you will be glad they phoned.
Romance. Your partner may advise you to do something
drastic. Ignore this advice. It is a recipe for disaster.
SCORPIO (October 24th – November 22nd)
You will be more sociable once you have had a chance to
relax. An offer from your friends will turn out to be much more
fun than you expect, so don’t turn it down. Romance. You
may be feeling a little impulsive at the moment. Try to control
yourself as far as you can.
SAGITTARIUS (November 23rd – December 21st)
Time spent doing something you enjoy will be well spent. You
have worked extremely hard recently, and need the chance to
unwind. Romance. A person who strikes up a conversation
with you may have more on their mind than a simple chat. Try
to be certain of what they want before you act.
CAPRICORN (December 22nd – January 20th)
A favorable aspect to Mars will give you the courage to push
for what you want. Don’t give up until you have achieved your
goals. Romance. An exciting dream may be less of a fantasy
than you imagine. If you are patient, the dream will come true
in real life. Your love life will soon improve dramatically.
AQUARIUS (January 21st – February 19th)
A chance to make new friends should not be missed. This
would be a good time to start getting involved in some charity
work. Romance. You might be feeling a little pent-up at the
moment. You need an outlet for your emotional energy, so get
out and about this weekend.
PISCES (February 20th – March 20th)
You may be a little taken aback by something that a friend
says. Try to work out what they really meant by this. Once you
know the facts you will feel a lot better this week. Romance.
The compassionate side of your nature will be to the fore this
week, and you will have time for your partner and your friends.
Growing up on a farm, using
public transport has never
been a regular part of my life
– unless you count hitching
a ride on the back of the

husband and tackle the public

and the UK.

which you can’t do.
In the big stations you have
