Find out what destiny holds for you for the rest of the month.

TAURUS (Apr 20 – May 21)

You’re feeling stifled, either by a partner or at work. After the 10th, you can start to take your own measure, but try not to be too self-critical. Do not neglect your health, but consult a specialist if you need to.

This month’s memo: Slowly, but surely, is your motto.

Birthday wish: Pamper time.

GEMINI (May 22 – Jun 20)

If you’ve felt that your self-confidence with the opposite sex has hit rock bottom, know that this is about to turn around. After the 20th, you’ll feel like socialising again.

This month’s memo: Enough is enough.

CANCER (Jun 21 – Jul 22)

Although the vibe between you and a friend might still be somewhat chilly, things are slowly starting to thaw and all will be forgotten. Your frustration with a house project reaches a positive turning point around the 20th.

This month’s memo: Give your home project the green light.

LEO (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You need to realise that things are reaching a tipping point this month. Get through the initial frustrations and delays in early May. Come the 20th, you’ll feel the cogs turning forward again.

This month’s memo: Don’t give up hope.

VIRGO (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You may feel that you’re facing opposition from all sides this month. Chin up though and do a reality check between the 3rd and the 10th to see what the worse case scenario might entail.

This month’s memo: Make sure you are very tight with your money.

LIBRA (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

This is not the best month for your love life and if you are a typical Libra, your life centres on your relationship. There is some good news though. As soon as Mars turns forward   in your sign on the 20th, you’ll glimpse something new on the horizon.

This month’s memo: Conflict can lead to resolution.

SCORPIO (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

It’s understandable that you’re not feeling loved and appreciated at present. With Saturn restricting your love life, you’re also getting to know what it means to be self-reliant. After the 29th, your love life can begin             to blossom.

This month’s memo: Lie low for the moment.

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Ensure you are taking care of any potential health issues. With that sorted, old friends will soon come out to play.

This month’s memo: Don’t take life for granted.

CAPRICORN (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You’ve been battling away to keep the ship afloat in your career ever since Mars moved backwards in March. You need to battle just a while longer. You’ll get a deserved rest after the 20th.

This month’s memo: You’re still in survival mode.

AQUARIUS (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Make it your mission this month to re-assess and strive for greater harmony all round. This becomes a lot easier after the 20th.

This month’s memo: Take life one day at a time.

PISCES (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

If you feel nobody is listening to you at present, try not to become a victim         of your circumstances.  Rather focus your attention on a relaxation technique, like meditation.

This month’s memo: Find  the silence within.

ARIES (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Finding your new rhythm will become easier, even if you and the love in your life are still embroiled in disagreements.

This month’s memo: Look forward, not backward.
