Say nothing . . . life gets much brighter mid-week, with a new moon in your sign on Thursday. Relationships are the big issue for the entire month.

Just give things a go, you don't have to always achieve 100%.

Sagittarius 22.11 - 21.12 Now that the sun, and Saturn, are in another fire sign, you should be feeling in your element, ready and willing to go out and meet all challenges.

Gemini 21.05 - 20.06 As your ruling planet, Mercury, is retrograde, you need to be inventive in your approach to socialising. It doesn't have to cost a fortune.
