The sun in Leo gives you a head start over rivals and you must use it to pull ahead of them now and over the next few days. Think about ways you can improve on your current position. Get ahead and stay ahead.

TAURUS (April 21 - May 21):

By all means splash out and buy yourself something that makes you feel good. Okay, so maybe you will regret it later when your credit card bill is due but you need something to cheer you up right now. Go for it.

GEMINI (May 22 - June 21):

Love planet Venus urges you to let that special someone know they are the best thing that ever happened to you. Don't keep your feelings locked up inside – speak up now and the romantic glow will last until the end of the year.

CANCER (June 22 - July 23):

You need to get routine matters out of the way as early as possible, because the second half of the day will bring some lovely surprises. If a social invitation arrives out of the blue you must take it – it could change your life.

LEO (July 24 - Aug. 23):

Venus links with Jupiter, planet of good fortune, in your sign, making it easy to attract the things you need into your life. All things are possible now, but one thing matters above all others. You know what it is, so make it your priority.

VIRGO (Aug. 24 - Sept. 23):

You have never been the sort to run away from problems and you must not start thinking that way now. Get together with people whose outlook on life inspires you and soon your problems, such as they are, will no longer exist.

LIBRA (Sept. 24 - Oct. 23):

Try not to see conspiracies where none exist. There may indeed be one or two things going on that seem a bit suspicious but people are not talking behind your back – and if they are it's because they are planning a surprise treat for you.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24 - Nov. 22):

You may feel good about yourself but not everyone is as positive as you and someone you love is in need of a confidence booster. Use your sharp wit to bring back the smile to their face. They won't be feeling under the weather for long.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 - Dec. 21):

Think only positive thoughts and only positive things will happen. Yes, it really is that easy. Create something out of the ordinary today by focusing your mind in a single direction. Extraordinary, even outrageous, things will start to occur very soon.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 - Jan. 20):

Friendships and finances are well starred today, so arrange a trip of some kind – maybe a shopping expedition – with your best friend. You won't have to spend a fortune to make yourself feel good, but you probably will!

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 - Feb. 19):

Don't worry if a relationship seems to be on the slide because you will get the opportunity to bring it up to scratch again. Today's Venus-Jupiter link in your opposite sign will bring out the best in you – and in other people too.

PISCES (Feb. 20 - Mar. 20):

You must be totally honest today, even if what you have to say is not what colleagues and loved ones want to hear. Don't worry about their reactions – worry about how guilty you will feel if you keep quiet and it all goes wrong.
