You want it all and you want it now. Okay, that’s fine (and very Leo) but be practical: It will take a lot of careful planning and a lot of hard work on your part to get the things you desire. And it may take more than a year to reach your ultimate goal.

ARIES (March 21 - April 20):

What occurs over the next 48 hours will convince you that so many of the things you have been worrying about are not worth the effort. Life will go on no matter what you think or say, so you might as well get out there and enjoy yourself.

TAURUS (April 21 - May 21):

There will be times this weekend when doubts creep in and you do not feel as self-assured as you look. Developments on the work front may be especially unsettling but there is no need to worry – it will work out for the best in the end.

GEMINI (May 22 - June 21):

You will get advice from all directions today but the only advice you need will come from that small voice inside you. Not only does it know the right answers but it knows the right questions too, which is far more important.

CANCER (June 22 - July 23):

Keep your money in your pocket this weekend, because if you make one wrong move you will have to make several more moves to get back to where you were at the beginning, and that’s a serious waste of time and energy.

LEO (July 24 - Aug. 23):

Both in your personal life and at work others will pick holes in your performance over the next few days, but it’s really no big deal. Your ego is big enough to handle it and, if necessary, hit back at them if it gets too much.

VIRGO (Aug. 24 - Sept. 23):

You want to do something exciting this weekend but because you have duties and responsibilities to fulfill you may not be able to come and go as you please. Remember though: your in-tray will still be there for you come Monday morning.

LIBRA (Sept. 24 - Oct. 23):

Steer clear of people who always seem to take a negative view of life. There will always be those who think the world is falling apart but you know the world has rarely been in better shape – and you’re in pretty good shape too!

SCORPIO (Oct. 24 - Nov. 22):

Someone you socialize with is secretly jealous of your popularity. That won’t mean anything to you so long as they don’t try to talk you down but if they do you must act fast. Rumours, no matter how wrong, can spread amazingly fast.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 - Dec. 21):

Honesty is the best policy but you may have to tell a small lie this weekend to save a friend from making a big mistake. If it’s the only way to make sure they stay out of trouble then go ahead, but don’t make a habit of it.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 - Jan. 20):

Avoid get-rich-quick schemes this weekend because most likely they will cost you a fortune. The planets warn if you take silly risks you will pay for it in a big way, maybe not straight away but certainly before the end of the month.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 - Feb. 19):

Take a break from all those restrictions you have imposed on yourself. It does not matter what obligations you think you have to take care of, you must also make time for the things you enjoy. If you’re not smiling, you’re not doing it right.

PISCES (Feb. 20 - Mar. 20):

You may want to back out of some kind of joint activity but if you do there are sure to be consequences. Before you make the fateful cut try to find ways you can make it work. If you can’t see any, try looking harder!
