Taurus 21 April - 21 May
If you need to resolve a home or family issue, this can be the time to bring up the subject and encourage further discussion.

Virgo 24 August - 23 September
You may make a far-reaching decision, and it could be one that sets you firmly on a new path. The planetary set-up suggests this may be something you do by yourself as you may not feel like discussing this matter with others.

Scorpio 24 October - 22 November
This is no time to be indecisive Scorpio, as if there's something you need to say, then it may be better to do so without worrying about what others think.

Sagittarius 23 November - 21 December

Capricorn 22 December - 20 January
Tempting though it may be to get involved in a get-rich-quick scheme, it might be wise to bypass this offer.

And although this plan could have some redeeming qualities, these might not be enough to make it worthwhile, as you might lose more than you gain Capricorn.
Aquarius 21 January - 19 February

Pisces 20 February - 20 March
If you need to change your schedule in any way, either because you are working too hard or don't have time for the things you really enjoy, then this is a good time to do so. But you may need to be quite firm when it comes to certain activities that you have become very comfortable with. They may be the ones that keep you in a rut, so releasing them might not be so easy Pisces.
