CAPRICORN - 22 December to 20 January
Poor standards are out at the best of times. New Sun from the 20th turns you into a terror of incompetents: Gordon Ramsay crossed with Boudicca.
AQUARIUS - 21 January to 19 February
The ‘at home’ period’s come to an end. The world prepares for an invasion of Aquarians, bursting out to remind us what showing off looks like.
PISCES - 20 February to 20 March
A home matter leaves you confused. Are you being conned? Yet a sudden domestic decision should be financially profitable.
ARIES - 21 March to 20 April
You’re naturally bold – but how far will you go against the grain? Mercury/Uranus invite you to tell an inconvenient truth... you win.
TAURUS - 21 April to 21 May
It’s like this: you want to book a £6,000 cruise for two but can’t afford it. Not yet, anyway. Buy the Titanic DVD instead and settle for a takeaway.
GEMINI - 22 May to 21 June
Life starts to feel like an old coming-out ball as planets urge you out of the shadows and on to life’s dance floor. Embrace the new in your pomp.
CANCER - 22 June to 22 July
Fortune favours shrewd recluses who know when to withdraw in order to fight another day. Enjoy your time in the sanctuary – make it a spa!
LEO - 23 July to 23 August
The temptation is to throw caution to the wind and fly off someplace for the hell of it. Better to use friends to help you get to the next stage.
VIRGO - 24 August to 23 September
You want fun. But look – Sun’s in your career/ status house from the 20th. Don’t you want to work hard at being the great success you can be?
LIBRA - 24 September to 23 October
If nothing else, go buy one of those ‘experience day’ vouchers (falconry? pampering? visit the Shard?) and do something you have never done before.
SCORPIO - 24 October to 22 November
A perfect time to look into the eyes of your lover and say: ‘Let’s pretend we’ve just met and go on a date.’ Treat passion as if it’s just a day old.
SAGITTARIUS - 23 November to 21 December
Wild and wicked is the way with you – let’s hope your partner’s in reasonable health. Remember to act as a twosome and not on your lonesome.
