Your week in the stars from Monday September 9 by Cassandra Nye

ARIES (March 21 – April 20) There is reassurance now on a work matter that has been a bit up in the air. Continue making contacts and putting a big effort in. This will give others the confidence that you are serious. Working with new folk certainly brings out the best in you and your talents. This is something that people value. Ask for what you want and show how determined you can be.

TAURUS (April 21 – May 21) Now and again, something comes along that seems too good to be true. You’re in this position at some time this week. Aside from pinching yourself, be sure to make the most of an opportunity. Have you been worrying too much about a small matter? This can distract you from what is really important. Aim to be with people at the weekend who are humorous and supportive.

GEMINI (May 22 – June 21) Having to adjust to different experiences and situations is what helps to build our characters. However, perhaps you are feeling that there has been enough of this character building going on! This week could be a turning point. Expect others to be more flexible and to help out more. What if they don’t? There are others only too willing to lend a hand.

CANCER (June 22 – July 22) There is likely to be an excess of good things on offer this week. Although those New Year resolutions may be a long way off, try to remember them. Taking care of your health is very important right now as you are on the brink of a very busy period. Making the most of fun and sunny days is only a small part of what will be on offer. So, keep good things going in and good things will come out!

LEO (July 23 – August 23) Too much time on your hands? Try to fill any emotional gap with work or planning something special. Looking three or four months ahead is good. Avoid, however, following a familiar pattern. Doing something completely new sets you on a learning curve. Once on it, you may decide to complete the circle. Who knows where this new knowledge will lead you? Exciting!

VIRGO (August 24 – September 23) A sharp intake of breath as this week begins. The full effect of a change around you may not be felt until the weekend. This is when the Full Moon fires up your imagination and passions. Enjoy a fresh look at your life with family and friends. Whatever you decide to do, savour this magical time. Someone who is around now is like a gift to your heart and soul.

LIBRA (September 24 – October 23) Although in a slower, more reflective mood, something artistic is moving you forward. Time spent alone is both creative and satisfying. Keeping more active moments for the weekend can work out well given that there may be something to celebrate. The Full Moon at this time seems to be the right time to make a declaration. Something much more personal than your income tax?

SCORPIO (October 24 – November 22) Being a bit of a dreamer this week leads your imagination on a fantastic trip. Anything seems possible, although you are likely to be a bit sketchy on the details. Keep the weekend clear as news midweek could mean a special celebration is needed. A matter at work turns out to be a pleasure and a surprise, not the hard work that was anticipated. Has your boss been dreaming also?

SAGITTARIUS (November 23 – December 21) A friend keeps you on your toes and may propose a joint venture. Hold on to your cash until it is looked into properly. It could be a case of optimism over reality. Spending should be kept to a minimum at a time when some areas of cash flow are uncertain. Unless it is a social occasion, keeping business and pleasure separate can work out best for your home life.

CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 20) Pick up the phone or send that email with an important invitation. What is a quick meeting for you could be a lifeline for someone else this week. Letting someone new into your life can see a real turnaround in your attitude. Been down in the dumps a bit lately? Spending too much time on one thing can stunt your growth in many ways! Get out and about.

AQUARIUS (January 21 – February 19) Aim to fully enjoy the love and attention coming your way right now. If people want to share their time with you then there must be a reason. You don’t understand it? Being far too modest again? Midweek and again at the weekend are very romantic times. Is there true love here? Pick and choose who you spend that time with to enjoy intimate conversations.

PISCES (February 20 – March 20) A fine week for making contact with family and friends. Romance and passion at the weekend need planning for. Were you really thinking of working? Surely not! This Full Moon is the time to ask that important question. Be practical when you hear the answer. In an optimistic month, you should continue to see the best outcome in everything, even if you have to wait a little.
