For those born on: August 15
Happy Birthday! The months ahead are likely to start very positively in terms of finance and romance, but while you’re busy making plans for the future, your more easy going friends will be a source of distraction. It’s a tricky one, but you will need to strike the right balance. You might experience a few communication problems at work or school in October, but this will only be temporary. Avoid getting stuck in a rut around November: keep an open mind and be receptive to new suggestions or ideas, particularly if they don’t involve too much spending! Romance is likely to turn your world about later in the year, when you’ll have a period of time in which to enjoy the more fun side of life, and meeting someone new is definitely on the cards around December, but after the New Year your private life will take a back seat as you’ll become more career minded!

Your Horoscope for August 15 , 2006
You could find that you’re pulled in two directions today: the organizer in you will want to exert some control over a situation, while the more reliable side of you will feel a need to go with the flow. But the underlying problem that can resolve this inner tension is a simple lack of self belief!

Happy Birthday! It’s going to be a very exciting twelve months for you, and you will need a lot of energy if you are to make the most of the opportunities available to you in the coming year. The big focus for you will be in the area of your career or your chosen direction at school. The planetary influences over the coming months will encourage you to spend a lot of time thinking about your life goals and ambitions. You may well receive some useful advice from an older person in your life, which if you listen to it will help you greatly. Romance will provide some much needed light relief in an otherwise hectic year; both before and after Christmas you’ll find that the biggest challenge is finding some time for yourself!

Your Horoscope for August 16 , 2006
You will be turning a lot of heads today as you will be radiating a certain something, thanks to Pluto. Take some time out at lunch time to go shopping with some friends as you have great taste right now. In the evening things will continue to go well with an unexpected romantic development.

For those born on: August 17
Happy Birthday! Emotionally the next twelve months are likely to be something of a rollercoaster for you. You may find that friendships or even a more intimate relationship will start to lose their appeal and that you feel restless with your usual social circle and hobbies. However, by the middle of the year some new attraction will make you feel alive than you have for some time. The planets also suggest that the second half of the year is very well aspected for risk taking. If you find yourself wanting to take a relationship to a more serious level the end of the year will be the time to make that leap. There are huge changes forecast in the spring, and you’ll find that your perspective on your personal relationships shifts significantly, but in a very positive way!

Your Horoscope for August 17 , 2006
The moon in Gemini will soften the harsher aspect between Neptune and your ruling planet. In plain English this means listen to that inner voice today. If you feel that something isn’t right, then it isn’t. Don’t be afraid to say no, especially when it comes to cash matters.

For those born on: August 20
Happy Birthday! The months ahead are likely to start on a fairly even keel; with numerous planets gathered in your sign you’ll be feeling extra vibrant and sassy right now, but as fall approaches a collection of intense aspects are likely to pull you in two directions! The sassy you will want to take on the world, but a part of you will want to stay at home in your sweats eating ice-cream! Keep yourself motivated with some competitive sport or activity around this time to banish this inner tension. By Christmas all your reserves of tact and discretion will be called upon; if a family member (or a close friend) seems to be acting strangely give them some space, because they will confide in you if you don’t pressure them. By the following spring your year will end on a high when you get an opportunity to travel to a new place!

Your Horoscope for August 20 , 2006
An aspect that highlights a certain amount of inflexibility on your part will move in to influence your ruling planet today. This doesn’t bode well for romance! It could make you feel rather negative and pessimistic about your love life. Hematite or Citrine crystals will help absorb much of that negativity.

For those born on: August 21
Happy Birthday! The year ahead could start with some inspired notions about exotic places and ideas of travel that haven’t been carefully worked out. However, these dreams could become a reality if you’re prepared to take time and care with your plans. Cash flow problems won’t help, but some creative thinking will help you get closer to achieving your ambitions. Venus will exert a positive influence in the fall, which will see you being more balanced and more in tune with others. January could see you being too cautious in key areas of your life as the planets move through Capricorn, but this will be short lived, because towards the spring you will enjoy a prolonged period in which your social diary will be full to bursting!

Your Horoscope for August 21 , 2006
With five planets in your sign you’re likely to be reflecting on your relationships quite a lot today (and tomorrow!) If things aren’t quite right, or if there are improvements to be made you’ll be in a strong position to make the changes needed. It may not sound like much fun, but you’ll be clearing the way for better things, Leo!

For those born on: August 22
Happy Birthday! The months ahead are likely to start with a complete U-turn in your way of thinking as your ruling planet, the sun, moves into Virgo. This is likely to make you more inclined to think things through, and a little more critical. Money will become important; not that you’ll become materialistic, but you will be inclined to fret more about cash. September will be the month to organize your finances; it sounds boring, but it will bring you peace of mind, and opening up a savings account if you haven’t already got one will make you feel even more secure! By Christmas you’ll probably have an enviable nest-egg and you’ll be feeling far more relaxed; however, with the sun moving into Capricorn you’ll need to watch that bossy streak, especially at work or school, but towards the spring someone very eye-catching will halt you in your tracks completely!

Your Horoscope for August 22 , 2006
You could be in for a stressful day today as two sparring friends draw on all your powers of diplomacy with their unreasonable behavior. If the situation absorbs all your energies make sure that you reserve some time for yourself! A trip to the mall for the latest fashions will work wonders!

For those born on: August 23
Happy Birthday! The months ahead will start with Mercury moving into Libra, imbuing you with a sense of harmony and balance, which will provide plenty of support on a couple of the more challenging days in September, thanks to a difficult configuration between the planets, where key areas of your life will need a rethink. November will be another taxing month, thanks to Mercury in Scorpio moving backwards. You’ll tend to bottle things up instead of expressing your feelings, but this will give way to some positive changes in the winter, namely a renewed sense of fun! You’ll become almost impish and yet charming, which bodes well for romance! However, when your ruling planet moves into Pisces in March you’ll find that romantic matters get even better!

Your Horoscope for August 23 , 2006
With the sun and the moon moving into Virgo, softening the more fiery influence of Mars you’re likely to feel as though you want to make many changes. From reinventing your image with a whole new look, or taking on new and stimulating interests this is definitely your moment, Virgo!

For those born on: August 24
Happy Birthday! The months ahead will start with a fair few challenges, especially in September, when certain planets move through your sign. A couple of tricky configurations suggest that you’re likely to uncover a secret, but you’ll need to talk about it. The first half of the year will be focused more on home life and self improvement; from cash matters to your environment you’ll be keen to improve things, but after December work or school and romance will really start to take off! January could bring some challenging moments, but you will be able to trust a friend. In February there is likely to be a surprising turn of events in terms of an unexpected romantic development, as you’ll meet someone who will be very giving and supportive!

Your Horoscope for August 24 , 2006
A surge of optimism, thanks to the sun, could have you overstretching yourself today. Some less than constructive person is likely to make a mountain out of a molehill at work or school, but don’t be sucked in! It’s not you who needs to regain some perspective here!

For those born on: August 25
Happy Birthday! The months ahead are likely to start with a welcome boost to your finances, thanks to the planets moving into Libra, but mid September will see a chance to work through some key areas of your personal life, due to a rare but challenging formation. This will be a very brief phase so make sure you grasp the opportunities to make the necessary changes! The run-up to Christmas will see you being both prudent and diligent, but don’t let the influence of Saturn take all the fun out of the festive season! You’ll also need to guard against looking at the world through rose-colored spectacles when Mercury starts moving backwards through Pisces in February, but when it finally shifts into Aries in April you’ll experience a whole new lease of life!

Your Horoscope for August 25 , 2006
You are not usually one for loving lots of attention, preferring to sit back and quietly take stock. However, the combination of the Sun and Mercury in your sign means that you will be full of witty comments today and that everyone around you will be keen to allow you to take center stage in any social gatherings.

For those born on: August 26
Happy Birthday! The months ahead are likely to start with some romantic issues that will need addressing! Thanks to a challenging aspect from Venus you’re likely to expect too much from a particular relationship. You will be in a very serious mood and will feel easily irritated with anyone who is being too frivolous, but ride this out, because some good luck or good news will be coming your way in October! Changes at work or school in January will boost your mood, and the opportunity to lead the way will put you in the spotlight! April will be an incredibly dynamic month, and it will be a roller-coaster ride too! It will be out with the old, and in with newer, better things, but you’ll need to do a little soul-searching!

Your Horoscope for August 26 , 2006
Beware of pushing your opinions onto other people today: the mainly positive influence of the sun could create a slight communication problem for you, which you can avoid by paying attention to what is said. Otherwise you could miss something of importance in a chance comment.

For those born on: August 27
Happy Birthday! The months ahead are likely to start with a need to forge ahead at work or school. This will be down to a lack of confidence that will make you feel as though you’re not achieving enough. Set yourself realistic goals and don’t be afraid to take the odd, calculated risk. As the weeks progress towards winter you will experience a whole new burst of energy, as you begin to enjoy the presence of Sagittarius. You’ll become more adventurous and more innovative. Make the most of this to expand your world. A Christmas vacation might be just what you’re looking for around this time! The spring will bring many changes for everyone; for you it will bring a chance of a new relationship, but you will have to work for it!

Your Horoscope for August 27 , 2006
Romance is likely to cause you one or two minor headaches today, thanks to Uranus and the moon. If the day starts with a slump in both your energy and your confidence levels don’t worry. A luxurious massage or a make-over will make you feel glamorous and ready for anything again!

For those born on: August 28
Happy Birthday! The months ahead are likely to start with you being in an ultra harmonious mood, which will be excellent, but you’ll prefer a very quiet, stress-free environment. This means you’re likely to take on the role of peace-keeper; you’ll need to put your foot down once in a while! Some unexpected but positive changes at work or school in the fall will give you a much needed boost of confidence, which will last well after Christmas. February will be a very constructive month, with you making vast improvements to key areas of your life, namely romance and friendships. Watch the cash reserves in April, or you’ll regret giving in to the temptation to overspend!

Your Horoscope for August 28 , 2006
Now that your ruling planet has shifted into your sign you will be feeling the need for a little space to yourself from time to time. Indulge these feelings, Virgo; if after a hard day’s work or study you want nothing more than a luxurious massage then treat yourself! You know you deserve it!

For those born on: August 29
Happy Birthday! The months ahead are likely to start with a bang in terms of romance, but will it be what you really want? The planets suggest that you’ll be constantly searching for where the grass is always greener, but this sense of dissatisfaction will fade, and by fall you’ll be back on track and less confused. A short Christmas or New year break is looking likely, which you should use to recharge your batteries, because the coming spring will be hectic, as work or school and romance absorb all your energies. It’s highly likely that single Virgos will meet someone new in February, while attached Virgos will see their relationships improve dramatically, but you will need to pace yourself from then until May!

Your Horoscope for August 29 , 2006
Virgos generally like to be in charge and take control. Born organizers and always efficient you are one of the most reliable signs, but today you’re likely to feel as though your control is slipping away. This won’t actually be the case, but keeping a piece of hematite close will keep those tense vibes at bay!

For those born on: August 30
Happy Birthday! The months ahead are likely to start with a change of image or a complete make-over, as you begin to pay more attention to the way people see you. The material things in life will become very important, but you’ll feel less easy talking about your feelings, especially when your ruling planet moves into Scorpio, when you’ll be inclined to brood and dwell on things rather than sharing any day-to-day problems. A close friend, most likely a water sign, will be important in helping you through this phase around this time, but don’t worry, Virgo, because by December things will be picking up nicely as a sense of adventure overcomes you. This mood will continue well into the spring, when you’re likely to discover a whole new direction in life!

Your Horoscope for August 30 , 2006
Romance might seem like hard work today whether you’re single or attached. Attached Virgos should arrange to do something zany and spontaneous with their partners, while singles should avoid the traditional ‘cozy candlelit dinner for two’ type of date today!

For those born on: August 31
Happy Birthday! The months ahead are likely to begin with an incredibly balanced approach as first your ruling planet, Mercury, and then Venus move out of your sign and into Libra. You’ll tend towards a laid-back approach, when sometimes you’ll need to be a little more proactive, especially in terms of school or work. Later in the year there could be some anxiety caused by the demands of family conflicting with the demands of your love-life; you can make this easier by talking the problems through with a sympathetic work colleague or school friend! Keeping the balance will continue to be a challenge, as you juggle the various areas of your life, but by the New Year the pace will change as you become more sociable and more outgoing, until the spring, where you can look forward to some major changes for the better!

Your Horoscope for August 31 , 2006
Torn between being dutiful and utterly responsible or throwing caution to the wind and behaving in an out of character way will make you stop and think today. It looks as though it’s someone who is rather eye-catching and gorgeous who will create this internal havoc in you; seek the advice of a family member!

For those born on: September 1
Happy Birthday! The months ahead are likely to start with a slight need to assert yourself, as the balancing influence of Libra makes you too amenable and too accommodating. If October starts with someone making you feel a little insecure then speak your mind! By November your ruling planet in Scorpio will be moving backwards and will be opposing Saturn. This suggests you’ll get stuck in a bit of a rut, but by the run up to Christmas you’ll be firing on all cylinders again. Career or school based opportunities will be readily available throughout the month of December, and by February a chance meeting could lead to some sizzling moments, but don’t expect this romance to last; the planets will be making way for some fantastic developments in your love life by spring!

Your Horoscope for September 1 , 2006
The positive aspect from the sun will continue to imbue you with good feelings but in a down to earth way today. This is thanks to the influence of Mercury, which can be channeled in many forms, but take the opportunity to grab yourself some fun this evening with your friends.

For those born on: September 2
Happy Birthday! The months ahead could start with some hiccups in your love life as you become a little dismissive. Towards the end of September your second house, of finance, will become much stronger, so cash matters should stay fairly secure until November. Around the end of the winter you are likely to become much more practically minded. Taking on projects such as redecorating your room, or redesigning the garden will appeal, as you will have plenty of earthy energy. Christmas looks like it will be a family affair this year, which will give you the chance to recharge your batteries, because romantic developments are likely to become a lot more demanding around February. Keep your energy levels high to cope with the intensity of it all!

Your Horoscope for September 2 , 2006
A positive aspect between the moon and your ruling planet bodes well for romance today, but don’t play it too cool or you could send the wrong signals. Take advantage of the aspect and be yourself: the charm and wit, courtesy of the planets, should be enough to win anyone over!

For those born on: September 3
Happy Birthday! The months ahead look as though they are going to be very focused on your personal life rather than your career or public life. Romance, family, and friendships all look set to become much stronger, but there is the possibility that you’ll overlook certain opportunities at work or school. The New Year will begin with tensions between work/school and your relationships becoming more obvious; take a moment to plan a realistic schedule, because everyone will be demanding your time! February might be a challenging time when your ruling planet starts moving backwards, but don’t worry, because the scattiness that you experience will lead, one way or another, to a wonderful romantic development. March is looking like your strongest month, but trips abroad look most likely in April and May!

Your Horoscope for September 3 , 2006
You are likely to have a very slow Sunday, and unless you do something a little bit out of the ordinary you could feel as though you’ve wasted the day. The abundance of earth energy indicates that you need to go or visit somewhere: a carnival, a festival or outdoor event will appeal; check your local papers for inspiration, Virgo!

For those born on: September 4
Happy Birthday! The months ahead are likely to start rather intensely, thanks to the transit of the planets into Scorpio; you’ll tend to feel things deeply, which suggests that romance will be one roller-coaster ride! There might also be a tricky choice to make: do you go with what you know or do you branch out a little despite some reservations? Don’t just make a snap decision on this one and be prepared to do some delving! Come the New Year you’ll find that your social diary suddenly becomes very full, but from March through to April you’ll need to schedule your time carefully, because there will be changes on the work or school front too! By June the pace will thankfully slacken, enabling you to reap the rewards of a demanding few months!

Your Horoscope for September 4 , 2006
You are usually one of the most down-to-earth signs, but today, thanks to Neptune, you’re likely to be a little flaky and dreamy, which suggests that you won’t be tackling work or school related matters with your usual efficiency. A piece of smoky quartz should help combat this!

Happy Birthday! The months ahead for you are likely to be full of changes and challenges as you toil to combine the old and the new. This is an opposition that could come about in a number of ways, but the position of the planets suggests that this will happen in terms of your love life. It could be that you’ll be stuck in a particular way of thinking or it might be that you need to tone down certain expectations, which you can do. And once you have achieved this you will feel great and ready to take on anything. For some Virgos a job change is looking likely, particularly after the New Year, which will see a time of positive transition for many signs!

Happy Birthday! The months ahead are likely to start with a bang! A new face on the scene could rub you up the wrong way, but if you can push your doubts aside you’ll slowly start to realize that this relationship has a great deal of potential, even though this person is almost the exact opposite of you! A few challenges at work or school are likely to test your patience in November, but keep a piece of smoky quartz with you to clear your thoughts! Listen to someone’s words of wisdom regarding an emotional matter in January; you will know that it makes sense! Anew project or venture is likely to absorb your time in March – don’t give up on it; stick with it in order to nurture hidden talents, and by May you’ll be firing on all cylinders!

Your Horoscope for September 7 , 2006
Your day is likely to be almost the exact opposite of Virgo’s day! Deep down you will know that you’re one hundred percent right on a certain matter concerning work or school, and in order to get the message across you are going to have to be quite firm and precise with someone today!

For those born on: September 8
Happy Birthday! The months ahead are likely to start with a need for perfection in your day-to-day routine, although what will be motivating you is an inner fear of failure. It’s the planetary line-up that will cause this needless dent in your confidence, although a supportive friend will guide you back to your good sense again! The winter months will bring a few challenges in terms of work or school and romance; if it starts to feel as though you can’t do anything right don’t despair, for the planetary shifts will bring the opportunity of a much needed pre- Christmas break! After the New Year you’re likely to encounter someone who is very emotionally honest and secure; whether this develops into romance will be down to you!

Your Horoscope for September 8 , 2006
Your thoughts are likely to turn to money today; no matter how much cash you have you will want more. The fiery influence of Mars in Libra will bring out a more determined streak to earn more, so now is the time to commit to a regular savings plan rather than frittering away your hard earned cash.

For those born on: September 11
Happy Birthday! The months ahead are likely to start with a burst of ideas and initiatives as you find inspiration in the most unlikely places. This will have a wonderful impact on your progress at work or school, and the knock on effect is likely to be a boost in cash! Whether this is a promotion or a one off reward it will be well deserved! The New Year will bring some cozy romantic moments, although your expectations in romance are likely to be a little too unrealistic! Distractions in the form of other people’s problems are likely to hold you back in the spring; try not to get so involved that you lose sight of your own goals, especially in terms of work or school!

Your Horoscope for September 11 , 2006
The niggling feeling that you’re somehow on the verge of either having a massive clear-out or just slipping into a rut is likely to dominate your thoughts. The planets are challenging everyone to make changes today; for you it’s a case of out with the old plans and in with some new, improved ones!

For those born on: September 12
Happy Birthday! The months ahead are likely to start with some fabulous opportunities, as a series of conjunctions bring some much needed harmony and order to your routine. You’ll be on a roll, Virgo, as you absorb some of the better qualities associated with Scorpio: determination, patience, charisma and an unnerving ability to get straight to the point! With these qualities behind you you’ll certainly be able to achieve! The run up to Christmas is looking a little fraught, with the need to be a little more understanding of others being the main source of stress, and a family member’s advice will prove to be spot on over a romantic problem! However, by the summer you’ll find a new lease of life in a budding new friendship!

Your Horoscope for September 12 , 2006
Usually regarded as the efficient and sensible sign Virgos today will be inclined to go against the grain in a big way, thanks to the influence of Mars! You’ll be likely to take on a cause that you consider to be important, and in the process you’ll inspire the people around you.

Happy Birthday! The coming year is going to be a real roller coaster experience in a number of ways. The first half of the year may see you torn between some exciting career developments and some important family issues. Towards the end of the year though the focus of your life will be very much in the area or romance where there are going to be genuinely exciting developments, especially after the New Year! You will need to ensure that you’re not trying to burn your candle at both ends during March and April; the temptation to tackle everything might just leave you feeling a little drained! Be sensible and prioritize the key areas of your life, and you’ll find that there are some amazing changes heading your way!

Happy Birthday! This could be a very important and even life changing year for you. Various encounters with distant relatives or long lost friends are likely to make you reflect on the dreams and ambitions that you may have forgotten about recently. It is also likely that the planets will be focusing your mind on some of the deeper aspects of your life and how you relate to the most important people in your life. Financially, this should also be a good year with an opportunity to make some significant savings, but remember to splurge out on some fun-times occasionally, especially in the spring, when your focus could become all too concentrated on gains and goals!

Your Horoscope for September 16 , 2006
If someone in your social circle has been feeling a little excluded lately this is the time when you can use your special talent for mediation to improve the situation. You will be feeling your usual calm self today after a tense few days and the chance to make someone else feel special is just the lift you need!

For those born on: September 18
Happy Birthday! The months ahead are likely to start on a very positive note, thanks to a string of conjunctions that will last for much of October. However, you might not be able to fully appreciate this, because you’ll be easily distracted by those little details in key areas of your life. Try to recognize the wider picture in order to make the most of this month. You might feel a distinct lack of energy at the start of December, but this will be very short-lived. January is likely to bring some minor problems in terms of romance; you’ll find that you need to be a little more flexible in your approach, but by the spring you will find that you become much more sensitive as Mercury into Pisces softens your more assertive nature!

Your Horoscope for September 18 , 2006
You could find that a short period of boredom drags you down today as the aspects influencing your ruling planet suggest that you’ll let opportunities just drift by today. However, be on the lookout for something that could greatly benefit your personal life, so be open to some grounded advice and an invitation out!

For those born on: September 19
Happy Birthday! The months ahead are likely to start with a slight hiccup in terms of school or work: minor communication errors and misunderstandings could make life a little tricky, but if you can laugh them off rather than taking them too seriously you’ll sail through it. However, by contrast December is looking fabulous, with some fantastic opportunities opening up in terms of new friendships and new relationships and January will see you consolidate those new beginnings nicely! Early spring will see you having some rather wild and wacky ideas, but as the weeks progress, and as your ruling planet stops moving backward those wacky ideas will start to look more and more like being impressive successes!

Your Horoscope for September 19 , 2006
You will feel the effects of your ruling planet in Libra when money issues take center stage today: there’s a danger that you could become a little too cash focused in your attempt to gain more. However it looks like you’ll get what you want; although there’s a risk you’ll upset a couple of people.

For those born on: September 20
Happy Birthday! The months ahead are likely to start on a high: October is definitely looking like your month, and although November might prove to be hard-work it will bring opportunities to improve two key areas of your life, namely romance, and work or school. December looks as though things will calm down enough for you to draw breath, which is just as well, because after the New Year the pace will quicken again! There could be some challenging moments in terms of romance: maybe your friends or family won’t approve of someone who has caught your eye – you’d do well to listen to the advice! Some challenging moments in April will actually offer some long-term benefits, even if you can’t quite see it at first.

Your Horoscope for September 20 , 2006
A rather frustrating day in the form of minor obstacles and taxing moments is likely today. However, try not to overreact; by keeping things well and truly in perspective will help keep your mood sweet, and by recognizing the more humorous side of these little mishaps will actually endear you to your friends!

For those born on: September 21
Happy Birthday! The months ahead are likely to start with some emotional issues being aired and cleared, which will rescue a certain relationship from the rut it seems to be stuck in. November will start with a burst of earth energy; take advantage of this rare formation in the planets to attend those practical matters, such as interior décor and general clear-outs. After the New Year you should make sure that you start saving for a short break, because by the end of January an exciting opportunity to visit somewhere will become apparent. The onset of spring will see some interesting developments in terms of romance: someone you initially clash with may turn out to be someone very special indeed!

Your Horoscope for September 21 , 2006
You’re likely to be unfocused today, thanks to the influences of the planets, but this could lead to some wasted opportunities to make some real headway with a particular relationship. Whether it’s a friend or a partner who needs some reassurance right now make sure you make some time for them today.

For those born on: September 22
Happy Birthday! The months ahead are likely to start with some rather sociable moments, especially while there are so many planets gathering in Libra, but there could be a tendency to neglect work or school. Cutting corners isn’t an option, because it will be noticed! The run up to Christmas will bring more of the same as the planets gather in Sagittarius: you’ll be invited to numerous parties, but the romantic interlude isn’t likely to happen until after the New Year, when everything has calmed down again. However, this could turn out to be a serious romantic development, but a dip in your confidence levels could slow this down, although that will be a temporary blip. By spring you’ll be on top form again and raring to go again, especially when a fabulous opportunity to travel somewhere completely different arises!

Your Horoscope for September 22 , 2006
The new moon in your sign indicates a fresh new start. If there is anything that you’ve often thought about trying but have never had the time, or have felt a little too nervous now is the time to put your doubts behind you and decide to have a go! Afterwards you’ll be glad you did!

For those born on: September 24
Happy Birthday! The months ahead are likely to start with you feeling rather put upon; the beginning of November could prove to be a challenging time, as a stubborn friend, most likely an earth sign, makes too many demands on your time. If you talk through your concerns with this person you’ll find that they’re feeling insecure. With Venus in Scorpio you’ll need to remember to open up a little more. Romance looks set to take off around Christmas; whether you meet someone at one of the many Christmas parties, or whether you meet them somewhere less exotic it’s likely to be a passionate fling! Work or school will absorb your energies after the New Year; by the spring there will be some fabulous opportunities, but only after an awful lot of effort, which will require some grim determination!

Your Horoscope for September 24 , 2006
Money is a major focus for you today, and you will be keen to explore any new opportunities for increasing your cash. Mars is currently in your second house which means you are inclined to have a more dynamic attitude to gaining wealth, but it is important that you avoid becoming too tied up with money making matters.

For those born on: September 25
Happy Birthday! The months ahead are likely to start with the need for a massive clear-out, especially when your ruling planet, Venus, moves into your sign. Your intentions will be good, but you could find that you run out of steam half-way through. Be realistic in your aims and take smaller steps – you’re more likely to get further in this clear-out if you feel less daunted. The run up to Christmas looks exciting. With Venus moving into Sagittarius you’ll be in the mood for pure fun and games, but don’t neglect your personal relationships! The following spring will bring with it a breath of fresh air as it’s possible that you’ll take a completely new direction in life, but you’ll need to make some difficult decisions in order to achieve this.

Your Horoscope for September 25 , 2006
Thanks to a rather powerful aspect from Mercury you are likely to be overly sensitive and easily hurt by things that you’d normally laugh off. It may be that you’ll need some recuperating time this evening; your favorite film and a steady supply of chocolate should keep your mood sweet!

For those born on: September 26
Happy Birthday! The months ahead are likely to start on an emotional level: with five planets, including your ruling planet, moving into Scorpio you will be feeling more vulnerable and sensitive than usual, but less able to express yourself. This would be an excellent time to start a journal or diary! November will start on a challenging note, where your relationships will seem to stagnate a little, but this will be eclipsed by a wonderful and powerful trio of aspects that will propel things forward again; don’t be surprised if romance notches up a gear or three! Throughout the spring you’ll be more focused in terms of work or school and there’ll be a danger of neglecting your partner or your flowering love life. Be realistic about what you hope to achieve and make sure you reserve enough time for fun and love too!

Your Horoscope for September 26 , 2006
Cash matters are looking excellent today, thanks to the moon, and because the influence from Mercury will shift today you’ll be feeling a much needed boost of confidence! A word of warning, though; if there’s something you want today you’ll increase your chances by being upfront about it!

Happy Birthday! The months ahead are likely to start with some minor communication problems. The sheer number of planets in your third house by the end of November suggests that there will be a certain amount of lost emails and letters leading to misunderstandings. Keep a piece of clear quartz with you to keep your mind clear during this phase, which will ease by the end of December. There are likely to be some short-lived challenges at work or school, and you may need to put your foot down, but after the New Year you’ll find that life starts bringing some long overdue surprises! Romance looks set to take off in the spring, while the beginning of summer will bring about a welcome opportunity to travel to somewhere new and exciting.

Your Horoscope for September 28 , 2006
With a positive aspect between your ruling planet and the sun, which remains in your sign, any thoughts that have been recently pushed to the back of your mind are likely to surface again. Don’t ignore them, because they will guide you in the right direction, even if it all seems a bit of a hassle at first.

For those born on: September 29
Happy Birthday! The months ahead are likely to start with a very brief period where you’ll want to do things your way, while everyone around you is guiding you towards a more common sense approach. This might seem frustrating, especially when you know your ideas will work if they’re given the chance, but you might need to compromise a little. The run up to Christmas will be the most demanding months of the next year, and you’ll find that you’re juggling the key areas of your life, mainly work/school and relationships. However, you can look forward to a total change of pace and mood from the New Year through to the summer, and August in particular is looking fabulous, with a unique opportunity to meet some wonderful new people!

Your Horoscope for September 29 , 2006
The minor negative aspect from the moon is likely to influence your day today. For you this is likely to mean a period where you’re happiest in the company of one or two friends. Large crowds are likely to unsettle you, so stick to the things you know you enjoy!

Happy Birthday! This is going to be a very eventful year with some real surprises thrown in along the way.

Things are likely to be somewhat up and down and you will have to work hard to make this relationship succeed. Keep at it though and you will be really glad that you did. Towards the end of the year all sorts of different aspects of your life will start to come together with a surprising feeling of predestination and even destiny!

For those born on: October 2
Happy Birthday! It looks like being a year of two distinct halves, both of which will bring their own particular challenges and benefits. For the next six months you need to take some time out to reorganize your life so that you can set aside some regular time for you and you alone. You should use this time to focus on an activity or hobby that you really enjoy for its own sake. The second half of the year will be extremely busy and so it will be important that you have established some ‘me’ time early on. There are opportunities for a significant career change at that point or possibly even a home move which will open up a whole new chapter in your life!

Your Horoscope for October 2 , 2006
Usually you are renowned for your balanced approach in all your dealings with those around you no matter how stressful the situation. Today you will have to work hard to maintain that calm temper. Someone in the workplace or the school yard will be working hard to try and unsettle you; the best response is to laugh it off.

For those born on: October 3
Happy Birthday! The months ahead are likely to start with a need to clear the air with either a close friend or your significant other; problems that have been simmering can be addressed, but you’ll need to do some straight talking! The run up to Christmas is likely to be filled with parties and gatherings, but after the New Year things should slow down quite significantly. This will be a welcome break and will give you the time that you need to make some significant decisions that are likely to relate to your future career. Emotionally, this looks like a good year. Although there will be no major changes in this area it is a period of consolidation that will see you settling into a very contented relationship.

Your Horoscope for October 3 , 2006
Money is looking less than fabulous today, with an over-riding inclination to spend, spend, spend, creating a bit of a strain on your finances. Whatever you are looking for, whether it’s a gorgeous outfit or some eye-catching accessories for your home take a shrewd friend who’ll hunt down those bargains.

For those born on: October 4
Happy Birthday! The months ahead are likely to start with a desire for a dramatic revamp of your home or your room; money will be looking great, but set a realistic budget for these changes and stick to it! A change of pace will make December quite memorable as you suddenly find yourself itching to do something different, but when Venus moves into Capricorn you’ll be more inclined to consider organizing the key areas of your life. This might even involve moving house so any decoration work you may have undertaken in the months before will certainly pay off. Romantically, there could be some exciting changes in store towards late spring, when a certain person who you have admired from afar begins to show that the attraction is definitely mutual!

Your Horoscope for October 4 , 2006
An inclination to ‘take over’ at work or school might lead to some minor tensions today. While you may have someone’s best interests at heart your input could be misconstrued; just double check that someone needs your help before you start offering the advice, Libra.

For those born on: October 5
Happy Birthday! The months ahead are likely to start with an unusual surge of Fire energy, which will put you in a very sociable mood indeed. New friends are likely to arrive on the scene, but you’ll be inclined to view the world through rose colored specs; heed any reservations a trusted friend has about someone new. Towards the middle of the year there are some excellent opportunities for material successes. However, the planets indicate that to really capitalize on this period you will need to be willing to take risks that you might not usually consider. There are indications that you may have some emotional tensions to resolve in an important relationship towards the end of the year. If you handle things carefully this could prove to be a helpful development in the long term.

Your Horoscope for October 5 , 2006
The negative influence from the moon will shift today, lightening your mood significantly. The only problem is that you will be inclined to take on too much, which could turn out to be overwhelming! Pace yourself and you will achieve at a faster rate!

For those born on: October 7
Happy Birthday! The months ahead are likely to start with some planetary peaks and troughs that will make you feel as though you’re on one long roller-coaster ride! The key areas of your life will come under some close scrutiny, as you’ll shift into a frame of mind to make some changes, especially when it comes to your personal relationships; you’ll be more demanding and more giving too. However, this period of intensity will ease significantly after the New Year, when you’ll start concentrating on the home; whether you move house or completely restyle your surroundings there is a definite change in the air come spring!

Your Horoscope for October 7 , 2006
The position of the planets today will provide the balance that you need and will bode well for romance! You’ll be the life and soul of any party, so if you’re single you should make sure that you take up any invitations out and see who you meet. Attached Librans should anticipate some sizzling moments tonight!

For those born on: October 8
Happy Birthday! The months ahead are likely to start with a need for some involved heart to hearts with someone close to you, but the misunderstanding is likely to be yours! You’ll tend to be in a fretful mood as Mercury moves back and forth through Scorpio, but when your ruling planet hits Sagittarius you’ll find that your spirits and your expectations soar, which will ensure a lively, busy Christmas. By the spring you’ll be pleasantly surprised with some positive developments at work or school, but the summer looks set to offer some very busy moments. Plan your vacation carefully because you won’t have a great deal of spare time until next September!

Your Horoscope for October 8 , 2006
You’re very definitely in the mood for fun today, as the influence of the Sun and Mercury combine to make you both confident and mischievous. However, you need to be careful about how you try and have fun with as someone close to you will be looking for lots of sensitive emotional reassurance.

Happy Birthday! The months ahead are likely to start on a highly organized and efficient note; you’ll have probably done all your Christmas shopping by November. This is great, but you will need to remind yourself to have some fun. However, after the New Year you will see your social life really taking off. You’ll also become a bit of a leader through January, as you’ll be the one with the innovative ideas. People will start looking up to you! By the spring your love life should be looking more settled. You might need to sit down and have a few intense heart-to-hearts with someone at a time when you’re feeling ultra sensitive, but it will work out!

Your Horoscope for October 9 , 2006
Thanks to the brief, but powerful planetary activity you are likely to see a bit of a dent in your cash reserves this morning. Any outstanding bills or invoices are going to hit your mailbox today. By the afternoon things will seem better, but do avoid going to the mall!

For those born on: October 10
Happy Birthday! The months ahead are likely to start with a need to let your hair down, which will coincide nicely with the run up to all the Christmas parties and celebrations. However, after the festivities have died down you might find that you need to rein yourself in a little! Work or school demands could feel as though they’re getting on top of you through March, but come April, which will be a wonderfully dynamic month, you’ll be back on form again. The summer is looking interesting – but when your ruling planet starts moving backwards in July you could find that your mood becomes a little harsh for a couple of weeks.

Your Horoscope for October 10 , 2006
Thanks to a stunning formation in the planets you will have a chance to help or guide someone through a tricky time, which is likely to bring its own rewards in the future, even though you might not be able to see it at the time. So keep an open mind today, Libra!

For those born on: October 11
Happy Birthday! The months ahead are likely to start with you planning to make some dramatic changes to your routine, especially if you are feeling as though you’ve become stuck in a rut. Beware of changing too much at once though: take one thing at a time and take it slowly. Image and health will be the two key areas that you’ll want to improve, but make sure that you implement a sensible health regime! After the New Year the nagging sense of dissatisfaction will ease, but slowly. With your ruling planet moving through Pisces you’ll be inclined to take things to heart too much, especially when it comes to romance, but come the spring and the first half of summer you’ll certainly have the upper hand!

Your Horoscope for October 11 , 2006
Thanks to some stunning aspects from the planets you should expect a fabulous day today. The only blot on the landscape is likely to be a harsh word from someone who is not in a very good mood. Just brush off the comment, because by tomorrow they’ll be ready to apologize!

For those born on: October 12
Happy birthday! The months ahead will bring with them some significant emotional realizations that could have a lasting impact on your life for years to come. The first few months may not be easy as you will be grappling with a number of doubts. The trick here is to learn to let go of those aspects of your life which are no longer helping you to move forward. The latter part of the year looks altogether more positive. An important relationship will be moving from strength to strength and there is a good chance that a major mutual commitment is on the cards before the twelve months is over!

Your Horoscope for October 12 , 2006
Scorpios may not be big talkers but when they feel the need to discuss things they are possibly the most perceptive of all the signs. Today you do need to have a serious conversation with someone in your life about where exactly your relationship is heading. You may be pleasantly surprised by the response!

For those born on: October 16
Happy Birthday! The months ahead are likely to start with you getting back to being in a strong, financial position that will come after a brief period of minor money worries. The Christmas rush shouldn’t pose too many problems for you, and after the New Year, around February, you can expect romance to take off in a big way as you go through a very dynamic phase. April will bring some exciting new opportunities in terms of your relationships: this will be a time when you meet new people who could impact on your life for many years, but you might have to make the first move. June might be a challenging month, with you needing to put yourself first, but the pressures will gradually ease.

Your Horoscope for October 16 , 2006
It is more than likely that your mood will slump today for no other reason than the challenging formation in the sky. You will probably overreact to those little hiccups that are a normal part of everyday life, but instead of worrying and fretting keep a piece of hematite with you!

For those born on: October 17
Happy Birthday! The months ahead are likely to start with a certain degree of restlessness on your part; you might feel as though your love life needs some extra zing, but what you’ll really need is some space to yourself. By December you’ll be feeling refreshed, but by the end of February your mood will become fickle again. April will be an ultimately positive month, although you’ll find that there are key areas of your life which need some sorting through: money, resources, and material things will need an overhaul, but once you’ve addressed this there will be no stopping you. The onset on summer will see a change of pace as you focus on your personal relationships, but make sure you reserve time for yourself.

Your Horoscope for October 17 , 2006
An array of rather powerful and positive influences suggests that you’ll be a force to be reckoned with today. You’ll be persuasive, charismatic, and a little too demanding, Scorpio! Just try to remember that not everyone will be able to live up to your high expectations today and cut them some slack!

For those born on: October 18
Happy Birthday! The months ahead are likely to start on an emotional note; changes in your social life might not be what you expect, but a couple of friendships look set to go from strength to strength. The run up to Christmas looks set to bring more changes in your immediate environment; whether that’s a house move or a journey to a new place it will certainly be an exciting time! March looks like it will bring some much needed peace and quiet, during which time you’ll be able to recharge your batteries. Romantic encounters in the summer should be taken with a pinch of salt; enjoy them, but don’t invest too much energy into them, because your expectations will become a little too unrealistic.

Your Horoscope for October 18 , 2006
A close friend is likely to test your patience today, but there will be a reason for their uncharacteristic manner. Just check that you’ve given them enough room to express themselves recently, and if necessary invite them out for a pizza this evening so you can both have the heart-to-heart that you need.

For those born on: October 20
Happy Birthday! The months ahead are likely to start on a fairly even keel. It’s the months after Christmas when all the changes start happening. A couple of moments of insight and recognition will spur you on to kick-start your life in March and again in April. Work or school will absorb most of your attention at these crucial points, especially if you feel as though things have stagnated a little, but you will get the opportunity to go for a promotion, an advancement, or a reward! Make sure that you don’t let this opportunity slip by! Romance features less heavily, until the summer; up until then it will bring some light relief, but it won’t be until August that someone really starts to light your fire!

Your Horoscope for October 20 , 2006
Communications in their various forms should be much smoother today, thanks to a constructive aspect from the moon. However, don’t be tempted to be too controlling today, especially in the outside world. Kicking back and letting others take charge for once will do you the power of good.

Happy birthday! The months ahead are likely to begin with some unexpected invitations to get involved in a new business or some other activity that could bring in some additional money. Towards the middle of the year emotional matters will come to the fore. There will be a need to have some serious conversations with a close relative or that special someone in your life in order to resolve tensions. If you are able to speak openly and honestly this period of tension will give way to a much more contented relationship. Towards the end of the year travel is particularly well aspected and this would be a great time to go on that long trip or tour that you have been dreaming about.

Your Horoscope for October 21 , 2006

For those born on: October 22
Happy Birthday! The months ahead are likely to start on quite a lively note, which will coincide nicely with the run-up to Christmas. You’ll be on top form and sparkling, especially when the planets start moving out of intense Scorpio and into fun- loving Sagittarius. Romance will be fun and flighty; if you’re looking for something more serious then you’ll need to wait until next summer, but in the meantime there will be plenty of fun moments to be had! Spring could see a sudden change of environment – a career or school change is possible, but moving house is more likely. The autumn will see the need for more changes in your immediate environment; these changes might seem to be happening a little too quickly, but after the dust has settled you’ll be pleased with the results!

Your Horoscope for October 22 , 2006
The influence of Chiron might complicate your love life today, and because of a couple of influences from the moon in your sign you are likely to feel things even more deeply than normal! Going to the mall for a sexy outfit to boost your confidence will work wonders today.

For those born on: October 23
Happy Birthday! The months ahead will be dominated by one thing: money! The transit of Jupiter out of your sign and into Sagittarius at the end of November will impact on your money house, keeping things pretty good for the next six months; the run up to Christmas is looking like a great time of abundance, but after the New Year you will have to put the more fun things in life on hold while you tackle something at work or school. This may seem a chore but again the planets suggest a welcome financial gain or reward for your efforts! However, April and onwards is looking like a more frugal period in terms of money, but rich in terms of romance! New meetings are on the cards! Your summer vacation is looking great, but avoid those holiday romances!

Your Horoscope for October 23 , 2006
You will be in for a couple of rather intense days as certain planets move into your sign. Today you’ll feel the influence of the sun and the more fiery Mars, which could mean that you’ll become a little more impulsive and spontaneous. Take advantage of the planets to do something different today!

For those born on: October 24
Happy Birthday! The months ahead are likely to start on an emotional note, with several planets in your sign. This will be an excellent time to clear out the old and make way with the new, although it won’t be as easy as it sounds. Christmas looks as though it will be fairly intense, but in an extremely positive way. However, after the New Year there will be some challenging moments for everyone; for you those challenges will arise in the form of work or school. You’ll need to find a way forward or you could find that you get into a rut. By May life should settle down again and offer some long overdue romantic moments, but September will see the most dramatic change: a new, serious minded friend is likely to take you by surprise, because they will prove to be a veritable source of support!

Your Horoscope for October 24 , 2006
Thanks to the transit of Venus into your sign yesterday’s intensity will only increase! Even so the influence of Venus will bring out your softer, gentler side, so if there is someone who has been playing it too cool recently today will be the day that you have them eating out of your hand!

For those born on: October 25
Happy Birthday! The months ahead are likely to start on a fairly quiet note, but don’t worry, because things will soon hot up for Christmas! There could be a slight note of discord at the beginning of December; torn between your heart and your head you’ll need to trust your inner voice, no matter what people say! After the New Year you might have to shelve your plans for a break or mini-vacation, but the financial rewards will be worth it! If romance seems a little jaded around this point don’t worry, because things will soon take off! For some Scorpios there might even be a hint of commitment or marriage in the summer air, but one thing looks definite: relationships will take on a lot more significance and meaning from the summer through to autumn!

Your Horoscope for October 25 , 2006
Watch the spending today, Scorpio. You might feel in the mood to buy something stunning but your judgment won’t be at its best today. What you think looks great now will look less great in the cold light of day! Hold onto your cash, and wait for the moon’s influence to pass!

For those born on: October 26
Happy Birthday! The months ahead are likely to start with an unexpected blip in your love-life when the moon in Taurus opposes three major planets. It might be that someone will be far too demanding, and the planets suggest that you stick to your guns, and just as your love-life starts to settle you’ll find that it’s a friend who starts testing your patience, especially after the New Year! All that will be required though is the time and space for a long heart-to-heart. The spring will see in many changes: careers, schools, or your aims and goals will undergo some form of positive transformation; just keep an open mind to all the possibilities. A holiday romance should liven up the summer, and it might even be one that lasts longer than the actual vacation!

Your Horoscope for October 26 , 2006
A conjunction with the moon, which remains in Sagittarius, means that while you’ll be in a dramatically go-getting mood you are more than likely to put your foot well and truly in it! You will need to tone down your blunt comments for the less robust characters around you!

Happy Birthday! The months ahead are likely to start with a burst of optimism and a need to liven up your routine, as Jupiter moves into Sagittarius. This new extrovert mood will be strengthened by the positive aspect from fiery Mars, and there’ll be no stopping you! As the planets start to bunch together after the New Year you could find that you’re being pulled in two directions, especially when it comes to work or school! Do you stick with what you know, or do you go for something new and completely different? The planets suggest the only thing holding you back will be a fear of failure! Your best time, though, will be the summer; from May through to August you’ll find that all your hard work will have paid off, allowing you to enjoy a buzzing social life with plenty of opportunities for romance!

Your Horoscope for October 27 , 2006
With a couple of minor but positive aspects influencing your ruling planet you should find that money is looking good today, and with a pleasant and sociable weekend to look forward to why not take yourself off to the mall at lunchtime to look for an eye-catching outfit!

For those born on: October 28
Happy Birthday! The months ahead are likely to start with rather a preoccupation of money and material things. Whether you’ll be saving up for those Christmas gifts, or those Christmas parties you will need to keep it in perspective, Scorpio. Even so, keeping a piece of green adventurine is said to promote good luck! A burst of fire-energy in the spring will certainly bring some one-off money making schemes, which will boost your flagging reserves, but don’t blow it all on someone who catches your eye in April! A certain dip in your usually penetrating judgment suggests that you’ll be tempted to spend everything you’ve earned in order to impress, but you really won’t need to! August could be your most taxing month, with the need to overhaul your lifestyle, but by September you’ll be wondering what all the fuss was about!

Your Horoscope for October 28 , 2006
Thanks to Mercury moving backwards through your sign you might feel inclined to act more thoughtlessly than normal. Scorpios are willful creatures at the best of times, but by pledging a couple of hours here and there, starting today, you’ll find that it’s easy to regain some perspective!

For those born on: October 29
Happy Birthday! The months ahead are likely to start on a relaxed note as the number of planets begins to shift out of your sign, and things that you’ve been worrying about will seem to melt away of their own accord. The run up to Christmas looks as though cash will be favorably aspected, but you will tend to overspend! Don’t worry though; from March through to May both money and romance are looking fabulous. Your high point will be June, when Mars moves into Taurus, although August might be quite a challenging month, when a friendship is put under the spotlight. However, September will imbue you with a great deal of wisdom and insight, which will enable you to make some long overdue decisions as to where your loyalties lie!

Your Horoscope for October 29 , 2006
Your horoscope is almost the exact opposite of Aries’ day: tensions with a family member are likely to have you looking for some advice from a good friend, but don’t be too quick to criticize the person causing you stress, because the planets are not being too kind to anyone today.

For those born on: October 30
Happy Birthday! The months ahead are likely to start on an absolute high, as a Grand Trine in the fire signs offers a rare opportunity to forge ahead at work or school and make a few extra bucks, which will be handy for Christmas, but you will need to make sure that you don’t neglect your relationships! More Grand Trines in the fire signs during March and April will bring yet more money making opportunities, so by the summer you should be looking at a healthy bank balance! However, there’s a danger that you could overlook the sizzling romance of the year in your preoccupation with cash, especially from March onwards! July will be a tricky month, with seven planets moving backwards, but September will present plenty of rewards as you clear out the old to bring in the new!

Your Horoscope for October 30 , 2006
Minor disagreements with your nearest and dearest are likely to have you feeling rather hemmed in today. You will certainly need your space, and given that you won’t be feeling in a very flexible mood you should postpone important decisions and spend the evening chilling!

For those born on: October 31
Happy Birthday! The months ahead are looking great, if chaotic, especially for the first six months! The New Year will bring lots of exciting opportunities and challenges in equal measures; not for you the quiet life, but the ups and downs will help you make some major decisions. Livening up a jaded routine and getting out of a certain rut will be one preoccupation, while a career or school move could be another, but don’t worry, because June will provide a long overdue period of rest and fun, which is just as well, because the autumn months are looking busy! A Grand Square in September will bring some changes that you’ll initially resist, but keep an open mind, Scorpio, and you’ll realize just how beneficial these changes are, especially when a new face enters the scene!

Your Horoscope for October 31 , 2006
A couple of very minor but negative aspects could mean that you’ll be less inclined to join in with the celebrations and more inclined to enjoy a quiet evening with one or two close friends. Getting a couple of chiller movies to watch will improve your overly sensitive frame of mind, though!

For those of us born on: November 2
Happy Birthday! The months ahead are likely to start with a steadily increasing schedule, as you try to juggle your work or school commitments and the demands of your personal relationships. Almost throughout the coming twelve months romance will play a huge part of your life: for singles there will be Christmas romances and summer romances, but the planets suggest that you’ll constantly be on the search for that ever elusive greener grass! Single Scorpios will be reluctant to commit, which attached Scorpios are likely to feel the need to establish some independence, especially in February and again in August, although a Grand Trine in the air signs in September will provide the necessary moment of clarity, after which you’ll feel much more content to settle!

Your Horoscope for November 2 , 2006
Some challenging aspects from Pluto suggest that there might be a clash of personalities at work or in school! The moon in fiery Aries will be at odds with your watery sign. If someone is being too loud, excitable, or rash then remember this is just their way!

For those born on: November 3
Happy Birthday! The months ahead will be full of excitement and the planets indicate that this will be a year when you are more willing than ever before to try as many new experiences as are available! Sporting activity looks quite important for the first months of the year although this might be as a spectator rather than as an active participant. The influence of Fire will also be felt in your relationships early in the year and this will see a period of high passion and much romance. As the months progress there will be chances to get very involved in the detail of the running of your workplace or school and this is a wonderful opportunity for you to shine! By the end of the year you will have been so busy you may well need a good rest, but it will all have been great fun!

Your Horoscope for November 3 , 2006
Thanks to the trio of aspects that are temporarily linking the fire signs you will be able to deal with a complicated emotional matter in a forthright manner today. Think of it as an emotional de-clutter, after which you’re bound to feel lighter-hearted, as though a burden has finally been removed!

Emotionally, there may be some difficult decisions that are needed towards the end of the year, but the final outcome will enrich your life more than you might think possible!

It will therefore be important to keep your wits about you this year. The planets also point to a very exciting year, especially during the summer months, in terms of romance. You will find that you are the centre of attraction and will need to listen to the advice of your close friends to ensure that you make the right choices. This year is very definitely one in which you need to make the most of all the wonderful things that are likely to be coming your way!

Your Horoscope for November 8 , 2006
The effect of Pluto will be felt today, and so you need to exercise caution when coming to any opinions about the behavior of those around you. You are likely to find yourself feeling unusually irritable and so it will be very important for you to keep your feelings close to your chest unless you are sure that you are being fair.

For those born on: November 10
Happy Birthday! The months ahead will see you taking charge of your life with renewed vigor. People close to you may be quite surprised by a new certainty about your direction in life which dominates the first few months of the year. Towards the middle of the year you will be attracted to learning and are likely to find a number of new interests which will both broaden your inner horizons and bring you into contact with a range of new people. Financially, this year will not be great, but provided that you are sensible with your spending plans it will not be a difficult year either, and in the last few months there may be an unexpected bonus!

Your Horoscope for November 10 , 2006
It may not quite be the weekend yet, but you will be having a roller coaster ride of high passion and excitement today. You will find out from a friend or colleague that someone in your social group is increasingly attracted to you. There is a high chance of some romantic dalliances later in the day!

For those born on: November 11
Happy Birthday! The months ahead may be extremely memorable for you as they carry with them the promise of a love that will last and bring you joy for many years to come. This may be a romantic relationship, but it is equally possible that this will be a new and wonderfully deep friendship. In addition this year is full of good fortune financially. The indications are that you will not win any money through luck, but that your own hard work and some particularly creative ideas are likely to bring you a substantial reward! This year will be very much a year of opposites, being dominated by a great deal of effort on the one hand and on the other some intense and overwhelmingly positive emotional experiences.

Your Horoscope for November 11 , 2006
Normally, you are too busy being active and getting things done to spend time just sitting down reflecting on your life. Today, you will find it much easier to simply relax and let the day glide by. Happiness and a sense of contentment are indicated so just lie back and enjoy being you!

Happy Birthday! The months ahead are likely to bring with them a number of challenges, many of which will be tough to say the least. However, do not despair as this is a sign that this year will be a year of major transformation for you. At a practical level there is a strong possibility that this year will see you move home, and the middle of the year is especially well suited to an extended period of travel. At a deeper level the summer period will see you reaching some significant and long lasting realizations about your deeper goals and values. In addition the latter half of the year will see a transformation in the nature of a power relationship between yourself and a member of your family that will be beneficial for both of you.

For those born on: November 13
Happy Birthday! The months ahead look set to bring you some long overdue, pre-Christmas excitement, but you will need to watch the cash flow, which will be erratic to say the least well into January! By then you’ll find that work or school takes off in a big way! This should bring a fair share of rewards, whether that’s financial or in terms of a promotion, but there will be a danger of neglecting your personal relationships. Romance problems look set to be nicely resolved in June, as long as you take the opportunities that will be presented to you. September will be a chaotic month, with both romance and friendships dominating your thoughts, but be prepared for the dramatic entrance of a new face, who will make quite a lasting impression!

Your Horoscope for November 13 , 2006
It is likely to be one of those mixed days, with personal relationships and friendships going extremely well, but with work or school taking its toll! Don’t be afraid of asking your friends for a little help if you find you get a little overloaded with chores or assignments; they’ll be only too happy to help!

For those born on: November 14
Happy Birthday! The months ahead are likely to start on a rather practical note; it’s possible that you’ll want to get everything ship-shape before Christmas, but if you do decide on a spot of DIY then make sure that you don’t neglect work or school! After the New Year there could be a temporary hitch in terms of romance: meeting someone who your friends and family don’t really like will test your patience, but it will be you who needs to take a step back! However, your love-life will start to dramatically improve in the summer, while money and resources will start to flag! Keep an eye on the spending, and try to restrain what will be a rather lavish frame of mind. September will bring fresh opportunities to boost your cash, though!

Your Horoscope for November 14 , 2006
Your popularity continues today and you will positively radiate charisma so make the most of it while it lasts! You’ll love being the center of attention, but make sure you go with the flow, because you may well learn some important lessons about the way you see yourself and your relationships.

For those born on: November 15
Happy Birthday! The months ahead are likely to start with you slipping into a fairly laid-back frame of mind. You’ll certainly be in the party mood as the countdown to Christmas begins, and for a normally introverted sign you’ll be the life and soul of any gathering! However, after the New Year you’ll feel more inclined to knuckle down, as achievement becomes your main aim, but a distraction in the form of a serious looking romance will stop you in your tracks in the spring! The summer looks set to be a little challenging, as an opposition between your ruling planet and the sun in Gemini will make you less reliable and more fickle. Don’t over-commit yourself at this time! This will pass and a rather hectic summer will slip into a much calmer autumn, during which time you’ll be able to recharge your batteries!

Your Horoscope for November 15 , 2006
A couple of excellent aspects will guard against a rather tricky planetary formation today. Instead of overreacting to someone’s criticism you’ll be motivated into showing just how responsible you can be! Whatever happens just remember that you’ll be the one who shines out!
