Sensitive, hardworking and dignified, you succeed brilliantly this year. Doubts, however, might prompt you to consider a change to your chosen field. Have faith in your unique and idiosyncratic self. If single, it’s challenging for you to open up and trust, and this year you decide to put it all into your work. If attached, you are blissfully happy and best friends. LEO gives you all you need.

CANCER (June 21-July 22)


Competitors can be a source of inspiration today. You will stay informed about new developments in your field of expertise. Career-related study or travel is worthwhile. Take time to release stress and overcome anxiety, though. Tonight: Old resentments melt away.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)


You find your thoughts deepened and intensified as you dig for answers with vigorous new determination. Avoid mental struggles with others, stay out of unsafe neighborhoods, and use extra caution on the roads. Tonight: Urge to get away from it all.
