Despite this, there is potential for positive strides and a great opportunity to kick back and enjoy yourself.
Virgo 24 August - 23 September
The Sun's move into Capricorn increases the emphasis on fun and leisure. And yet you might still feel a tad hassled.

It's also possible someone will show up out of the blue or cancel unexpectedly. You'll need to be flexible and take it all in your stride.
Libra 24 September - 23 October
With so much happening, be prepared for a hectic time that brings out the best in you. Communication can be key to resolving any issue. And the right words spoken at the right time could soothe and reassure. And yet if you need to speak out, you will. The Sun's entrance into Capricorn puts the emphasis on family events, and you'll be the one that makes them special.
Scorpio 24 October - 22 November
You may try and reason your way out of any dilemmas, but in the end it all comes down to trusting your instincts. Whatever complications you face, there is light at the end of the tunnel. This week brings the chance of a reset that gets 2024 off to a positive start. You'll realize that certain things can't go on as they are. The decision to embrace new options will boost morale.
Sagittarius 23 November - 21 December
Have last minute gifts to buy? Don't obsess over getting this right, as a potent tie suggests you'll never get anywhere. Choose the simplest options or make some yourself and go from there. Plus, an ongoing issue could move towards resolution, as a sparky tie can find you overcoming resistance and making a move. The weekend may bring you and another closer than expected.
Capricorn 22 December - 20 January
The Sun's move into your sign means you'll be in your element over this hectic week, and keen to make your mark. Half the fun at these times is letting others chip in, so giving people space to do so will bring everyone together. The willingness to be bold and try something different could mean a creative or romantic opportunity comes to life, and you'll be excited by its potential.
Aquarius 21 January - 19 February
A positive shift may be in the air, as something you've hoped for looks likely to happen. There might be one hurdle to overcome, and to do so you'll need to push through self-imposed barriers. Go for it Aquarius, as a golden prize awaits. The weekend brings a chance to decompress and get your bearings. And Mercury's move back in Sagittarius can coincide with a blast from the past.
Pisces 20 February - 20 March
The Sun's move into your social sector lights up this zone just in time for the holidays. It's also an opportunity to kick back and enjoy the party scene, if you want to. Still, an awkward link suggests someone could be difficult, if you don't invite them along or spend time with them. Sort this issue out sooner rather than later so you can enjoy yourself and revel in the week ahead.
