Your week in the stars from Monday September 2 by Cassandra Nye

ARIES (March 21 – April 20) A low-key start to this week gives you the chance to plot and plan. Being organised means getting so much more done, as you find. In a busy and productive time, you are seen at your best. Social and business connections are supportive, helping to solve some long-term niggling problems. Although on a roll and wanting to do everything at once, don’t let your home life suffer.

TAURUS (April 21 – May 21) Pay attention to detail, especially at work as the week begins. Business colleagues want to get things moving but you may still be in a leisurely mood. Let them set the ball rolling and join in where your talents can show themselves. Social gatherings take up some time as there is reason to celebrate. Pleasure is utmost in your mind but it is certainly shared by others. A romantic time.

GEMINI (May 22 – June 21) Being optimistic gets you off to the best start. Believe in and use your talents. Spending time on improving your surroundings gives pleasure to yourself and loved ones. Involve them as much as possible. Clearing out cupboards and lofts seems like the thing to do now, but check with loved ones. What is rubbish to one could be a treasure to someone else! Charity shops can benefit.

CANCER (June 22 – July 22) Business being on the back-burner a bit this week, please do get out and enjoy yourself. Any low mood moments will pass quickly if you look ahead. See the brighter moments ahead and always look forward. The time is right for getting to know your neighbours or work friends more socially. The joy of having fun in a group is high, so allow yourself to fully enjoy the company of others.

LEO (July 23 – August 23) This is a romantic week that may demand plenty of your time and attention. It is time well spent though! If energy is low for a few days then a slight delay to a plan can get it off to a better start. Choose your best time. Really this week is all about picking the moment to move forward. Socially you have everything to play for and, let’s face it, you do need to have some of that playtime!

VIRGO (August 24 – September 23) A change in someone’s attitude could take you by surprise. Before you have a knee-jerk reaction however, think their reasons through. Busy as you are, change is not always something that you seek. Is someone trying to fire up your imagination and passions? Are there good reasons for you resisting? This moment could be a gift to your soul. Allow yourself to savour the good it can bring.

LIBRA (September 24 – October 23) Having a bright and enthusiastic air about you really works this week. Your creative side is in full swing, so don’t resist the urge to indulge it. Some moments spent working alone point you in the right direction. This could be leading to working with others on something that is fun and satisfying. Keep an open mind and see how others approach the world. You are not a novice, but we can always learn more.

SCORPIO (October 24 – November 22) Have confidence and enthusiasm in your ideas. It is good to be in a creative and dreamy mood. It is through these periods that we often find our niche. The way forward becomes clear, quickly, as a new member of your group makes suggestions. You may prefer to be in charge but, sometimes, it can be fun to go more with the flow. Try it and enjoy.

SAGITTARIUS (November 23 – December 21) Stay on your toes when it comes to finances. Friends can be persuasive when it comes to a pet project but few things are as simple as they first appear. Keep these business matters for the weekdays, anyway. Evenings and weekends this week should certainly be made over to pleasure and imagination. A loved one fully appreciates your attentions and a new approach.

CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 20) Love and support from those who love you is only a phone call away. Letting someone closer into your life this week could do them a favour. Maybe they have issues of their own that you can help with? Although you may be feeling like a bit of a home bird at the moment, a short trip out could have mutual benefit. It is easier to chat in the outdoors, don’t you find?

AQUARIUS (January 21 – February 19) There is a lot of love and support around this week. Really enjoy the time with people who want to be with you. There is very little effort to be made but what you do give is appreciated. Midweek and the weekend can be truly romantic times when a commitment may be given. Is this real passion? Whatever it is, be prepared to fully enjoy it.

PISCES (February 20 – March 20) What a great week for making contact with family and friends. Romance can be particularly passionate at the weekend. Plan ahead who you will be with and where! Have a favour to ask someone? Midweek could see the best chance of success. Remember that knowledge can be fun and maybe enrol in a course or club beginning this week. The social benefits are yet to be found.
