horoscopes, holding scorpio

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

SCORPIO (23 Oct — 21 Nov)

You’re bound to have very intense feelings of either passion or jealousy around the 11th. As you know, it never is good to bottle things up, as this often leads to an explosion. Find a way to express your feelings and don’t carry the world on your shoulders.

This month’s memo: Rome was not built in one day.

Birthday wish: A day of R & R.


SAGITTARIUS (22 Nov — 21 Dec)

Chances are that you are feeling quite strongly about acquiring something that you have set your heart on. Be wary of needing this at all costs, as you‘re bound to become obsessed if you cannot see beyond your own desires.

This month’s memo: Does money make the world go round?


CAPRICORN (22 Dec — 19 Jan)

Mars and Pluto combine in your sign on the 11th and this is likely to unleash a power house of feelings. Since you‘re not someone who acts impulsively, direct this energy in a purposeful manner. It also means showing your natural leadership skills.

This month’s memo: Do the best for all concerned.


AQUARIUS (20 Jan — 18 Feb)

You have an opportunity to make headway in your career this month, provided that you are willing to put your shoulder to the wheel. Even though you may have your doubts about yourself, put on a brave face and have a go.

This month’s memo: Have faith in yourself.


PISCES (19 Feb — 20 Mar)

A friend’s envy might take you by surprise this month, but do not let it upset you to the point of feeling devastated. At least you can see him/her for what they really are, after which it is your choice as to how you respond to the friendship.

This month’s memo: Sometimes one has to move on.


ARIES (21 Mar — 19 Apr)

The focus is firmly on your career this month. If you wish to progress in your job, you have to show some resilience as well as ambition. There is little point in going after instant gratification when you really need to have a long term plan.

This month’s memo: Be ruthless with yourself.


TAURUS (20 Apr – 20 May)

Things seem to be coming to a crunch in your love life this week and there are many important decisions the two of you need to discuss. Try to stay realistic about what you can achieve and what is not feasible or practical.

This month’s memo: Stay grounded in reality.


GEMINI (21 May – 20 Jun)

You seem to be under an inordinate amount of work pressure this month. Yet, if you can stick to your plan, you will look back at this period with great satisfaction. A new beginning is indicated for your love life around the new moon on the 22nd.

This month’s memo: Perseverance will pay off.


CANCER (21 Jun — 22 Jul)

A love relationship is bound to get quite intense this month, so endeavour to keep an eye on things and how matters develop. An important decision that may influence a child’s life could also feel like a burden to carry between the 13th and the 18th.

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


LEO (23 Jul – 22 Aug)

A colleague could be devising a plan behind your back, so be on the lookout for someone who has an agenda. As long as you know what your duties and responsibilities are and you stick to them religiously, you should have no cause    for concern.

This month’s memo: Hold your head high.


VIRGO (23 Aug — 22 Sep)

You’re a stickler for details and this month you seem quite willing to get your paperwork sorted out. If you feel that someone has betrayed you in the past, get over the fear of it happening again in the future.

This month’s memo: Let bygones be bygones.


LIBRA (23 Sep – 22 Oct)

An old family issue might rear its head again this month, so we alert around the 11th to see what transpires. Money seems to be the focal point of this dynamic, so give some thought as to how you can sort things out once and for all.

This month’s memo: No more procrastination.
