Horoscopes

By Imhotep

A little added awareness of how you come across, my dear Rams, as people born under the Cardinal Fire sign of Aries (21 Mar-21 Apr) are sometimes called, helps a lot when it comes to romantic communication now. Contrasting events dominate your thinking in the days ahead.

Style sometimes comes before substance in this world, my dear Bulls, as people born under the Fixed Earth sign of Taurus (22 Apr-22 May) shall pursue artistic endeavours. But, you are searching for something profound. Image-conscious characters are constantly faking it, while bleating about doing good. You might procrastinate over a prickly matter, be bullish.

It is hard to find a fresh path when the chips are down, my dear Twins, as people born under the Mutable Air sign of Gemini (23 May-22 Jun) are sometimes called. Take heart, press on. The New Year is a time for new beginnings for you, and surprises in store for you make it is all the more exciting.

Sometimes it is less about what move you make, my dear Crabs, as people born under the Cardinal Water sign of Cancer (22 Jun-22 Jul) are sometimes called. And, more about setting something, anything in motion. Something is going on and you can just tell. The parties involved are not prepared to spill the beans right now.

Your personal relationships, my dear Lions, as people born under the Fixed Fire sign of Leo (23 Jul-22 Aug) are sometimes called, require a little extra finesse across the board -- be they romantic, platonic, or wok-related. Trying to fit in around on eight or nine tasks will just drain your energy.

If you find yourself in a mental fog, my dear Virgoans, as people born under the Mutable Earth sign of Virgo (23 Aug-22 Sep) are sometimes called, you can either laze about and enjoy the haze, or get moving and do something to clear it up. The former approach is more conducive to daydreaming, the latter, to actual action.

Another week for taking liberties, my dear Scales, as people born under the Cardinal Air sign of Libra (23 Sep-23 Oct) are sometimes called. Life can be crude and lewd. However, the excitement in the days ahead for Scales can be exceptionally boisterously entertaining especially for those with a black sense of humour.

Count your blessings. A once in a lifetime connection is now possible, my dear Eagles, as people born under the Fixed Water sign of Scorpio (24 Oct-23 Nov) are sometimes called. But, you must open up. Speak up. Love more. That may be tough in the days ahead. Remember there is a divine lesson in all this.

Talking about matters of the heart require extra tact and extra delicacy now, my dear Centaurs, as people born under the Mutable Fire sign of Sagittarius (24 Nov-23 Dec) are sometimes called. Difficult because Centaurs are forthright. Think carefully about what you want to tell and what you want to keep to yourself.

Sometimes it is less about what move you make, my dear Crabs, as people born under the Cardinal Water sign of Cancer (22 Jun-22 Jul) are sometimes called. And, more about setting something, anything in motion. Something is going on and you can just tell. The parties involved are not prepared to spill the beans right now.

You have agreed to take on a particularly onerous project -- one you would never consider under any circumstance, my dear Water Bearers, as people born under the Fixed Air sign of Aquarius (23 Jan-19 Feb) are sometimes called.Understanding the situation is important. Understanding yourself is everything.

The New Year is great. The Stars add even more grandeur to your already great momentum, my dear Dolphins, as people born under the Mutable Water sign of Pisces (20 Feb-21 Mar) are sometimes called. With your skills and some hard work, there is really nothing you cannot do. Cosmic inspiration is all around you. Reach for the Stars.
