TAURUS: This week throws its cards face up on the table and what you see is what you get, direct and unedited, so youll know where you stand. If youve been feeling like lashing out on something flashy or doing something dashing, nows the time for it.

GEMINI: Nobody combines work and pleasure better than Geminis, and present astral aspects look set to send you into a networking frenzy.This week goes places and you like that just know that some of those places will be thrilling, some temperamental, others confronting.

CANCER: With this weeks Sun in another cardinal sign, signals in the domestic sector will be loud and clear, though possibly not entirely what you want to hear. But as long as you dont overpersonalise things, this could be a highly exciting time in the partnership department.

LEO: This week ushering in a new mood of optimism and expansion moves, shakes and swings you full steam ahead. While nobodys in the mood to be bossed, with present aspects flicking a flame to your Majestys high octane, flamboyant showbiz personality, whos likely to refuse you?

VIRGO: This weeks rash, brash, slapdash citizens initiating things without finishing them will definitely test Virgo perfection-meisters.
