Sagittarius
Nov 22 – Dec 21
Your plans and ideas go Imax—and you totally love the new big picture. But higher-ups insist you stick to the script, and they might have a point. Avoid rash moves that could affect your income or investments. But when it comes to the rest of your life, do try a little improv.

Capricorn
Dec 22 – Jan 19
You’re everyone’s rock, it’s true. This month, though, seismic shifts continue on many fronts. A relocation or downsizing may be in order. Will you crack? Not likely, especially if you loosen up and let someone else prop you up for a change. You can gain solid ground financially when a partner picks up the slack or provides a last-minute loan. But be sure to get it all in writing before the 20th.

Aquarius
Jan 20 – Feb 18
Rumblings around the workplace reach a crescendo. Since most circumstances are beyond your control, keep your ear buds on and maintain a low profile. More harmonious opportunities await come fall. Paradoxically, it’s when you’re flying under the radar that you’ll meet a group of low-key people who will help you reach a higher note—especially an inspiring new lover.

Pisces
Feb 19 – Mar 20
Reinvention: round two. You’re now in the home stretch of a dramatic life transformation. Trust that the time will come when it all makes perfect sense, and send out a spiffy new résumé. Your financial sector is under fire from several quarters. Think about losing your usual D.I.Y. strategy towards banking, and talk to the pros so you can figure out how your money can grow.

Aries
Mar 21 – Apr 19
Something’s gotta give: breakout, breakthrough, or breakdown, it’s your choice. Do follow your passion, but don’t overestimate your luck or abilities. Focusing on one goal at a time is the most productive course of action. Speaking of passion, you’re ready to rhumba, but only with a steady partner who supports your ambitions without clinging too tightly.

Taurus
Apr 20 – May 20
The same old paddock is too confining now. More scope at work, a bigger home—you want it all. But it’s best to pull in those horns, just in case another power struggle (or two) emerges; setting limits with key players helps. It’s when you’re surrounded by the things and people you love that you’re at your most attractive.

Gemini
May 21 – Jun 20
The big bang becomes less of a theory and more of a reality this month. Get ready to make some noise on the social front. However, be weary of a close or group relationship which could go either supernova or implode. Money and shared space are likely triggers, so don’t push these issues. Small wonder you’re ready to blast off to a galaxy (or cottage) far, far away!

Cancer
Jun 21 – Jul 22
Don’t let uncertainty drag you down or throw your job overboard. Bide your time, catch the wave and you’ll soon be riding high. Meanwhile, dreaming of the perfect man could mean you walk right by Mr. Right Now. Listen carefully and read between the lines. An exciting new chapter is about to begin.

Leo
Jul 23 – Aug 22
A whirlwind of activity has resulted in a whole new mindset, so set your Louboutins firmly on the ground and take a big step forward. Travel is likely involved, plus an on-the-fly relationship with someone whose attitude towards life impresses you. Pay your bills and get organized because after the 20th, mix-ups send your head spinning.

Virgo
Aug 23 – Sep 22
You’re on the verge of big things. Until then, work a retro philosophy and “turn on, tune in, drop out.” Turn on, and you can enjoy an end-of-summer love if you’re willing to emotionally unbutton. Tune into your real needs and you’ll realize it’s high time to escape to the beach for a while. Drop out for a moment and you’ll find yourself serenely centred. 

Libra
Sep 23 – Oct 22
You are certainly due for an out-of-the-blue attraction. This one may last longer than you think, but a reality check will indicate if you can weather more than just a few storms together. Your charm quotient is running out, so use it and the same can be said of your creative juices. Just remember that your friends are the ones who support and ground you now.

Scorpio
Oct 23 – Nov 21
It’s time to rethink your career but make sure you have all the facts before you jump ship. Circle the wagons, practice tact and hang onto your principles; the new moon brings a breath of fresh air on many fronts. Someone new could blow into town, too—just when an old flame is saddling up again. Only time will tell which love will be the one you’ll ride off into the sunset with.
