People with your best interests in mind may not be offering the smartest counsel. Expect delays Saturday or Sunday. LIBRA Sept 23-Oct 22 The combination of critical relatives and nagging colleagues doesn’t get the week off to a great start. Luckily, the trend doesn’t continue. Finances improve and so does your love life. SCORPIO Oct 23-Nov 21 Relatives play a time-consuming role. It seems that daily compromises may have to be struck. For the sake of health and your career, it’s important that you look and feel great. SAGITTARIUS Nov 22-Dec 22 Children and old friends make this a fun week. Strange correspondence gets your mind wandering. Read newspapers with added care – you may be pleasantly surprised. CAPRICORN Dec 23-Jan 20 The time is ideal for a major creative expression. Watch out for absentmindedness around Friday and sloppiness with numbers on the weekend. Join a health group for controlled exercise. AQUARIUS Jan 21-Feb 19 Your lucky cycle continues this week and it’s a great time for starting any size job. Extra time is required in looking after the welfare of a loved one. PISCES Feb 20-Mar 20 Tighten those purse strings and avoid gambling, especially on ‘sure things’ – but if sprees are out, friendship and compatibility are in. At work, scruples pay off. ARIES Mar 21-Apr 20 Be cautious with documents all this week and don’t lend any papers without retaining a copy. Joint ventures are spotlighted and an offbeat partnership could prove a great success. TAURUS Apr 21-May 22 Petty jealousies among friends disturb you and snoopy neighbours likewise irritate you. There is good news financially, around Friday – perhaps a chance to earn a substantial bit of cash. GEMINI May 23-June 21 This is time to move into the future and not to dwell on past events. Romance can be on your mind much more than usual. Your social schedule stresses quantity over quality. CANCER June 22-July 22 Your hunches are weak. Question all impulses and follow plans more rigidly. You may feel you are being pulled in every direction – take a stand. The accent is on creativity all weekend. LEO July 23-Aug 22 Key phrase – be demonstrative. This is the time to show your feelings. Risks are not wise from Thursday on.
