GEMINI May 22 – June 22  

Your mind will be stimulated in new directions during the month from January 20, whether it has to do with the start of the school year or business agendas. There is an especially strong accent on financial interests during this time, particularly associated with money other than your main source of income. It is good to get organised for the year ahead.

CANCER Jun 23 – Jul 23 

This time of year is always important in reconnecting with people and establishing new relationships, whether at the business or personal level.

LEO Jul 24 - Aug 23

Leonine individuals will place greater emphasis on their work during the month from January 20, especially on January 31, February 10-17. You will take a methodical approach to any matters handled then, which also extends to health matters. Your attitude is pragmatic and minimalist, enabling the adept management of any issues.

VIRGO Aug 24 - Sep 23

The coming month will have many pleasant aspects as you have the opportunity to expand your social activities and creative talents, especially on January 31, February 10-17. However, you’ll also want and find time to enjoy your own recreational interests and pursuits on your own – just the way you like it.

LIBRA Sep 24 - Oct 23  

We all need a stable home life to act successfully in the outside world. This coming month throws the focus on your home, so it’s a time to put things in order. However, you’ll also be doing it with flair as you like to entertain in style. There are goals associated with the home and family that are achievable at the moment.

SCORPIO Oct 24 - Nov 22 

The month from January 20 is a particularly active time for Scorpio, as you work your way through more reading and audio-visual material than usual. You’ll be well-versed and informed as you make important decisions on life direction and career, with January 31, February 10-17 stimulating your potential.

SAGITTARIUS Nov 23 - Dec 21 

The month from January 20 is generally an excellent period financially for Sagittarians, benefiting from an influx of cash and the accumulation of assets, so many will secure a pay rise or land an excellent job.  Good fortune generally plays a role, but you are also able to secure good advice as well.  Best days are January 31, February 13-17.


This is generally a time of year of deep reflections for Capricorn individuals, not only about the meaning of life and your place in it, but about your very existence. In your typical Capricornian way, you’ll be motivated to secure your future, with a strong emphasis on financial aspects of doing so. January 31, February 10-17 accentuates these trends.


A desire to be alone or the need to be so is strong during January 20 and February 19, emphasising the importance of a good marital relationship. In times of need, there is good support but you are also equally capable of giving. January 31, February 13-17 brings out the best in people and these trends.


January 20 and February 19 is a fabulous mix, bringing work opportunity, new friendships, and social interaction, especially on January 31, February 13-17. This atmosphere stimulates your desires for success but also rewards you at the same time. You can expect to set new goals and achieve old ones.
