A LOOK at your stars running through until Sunday January 1
CAPRICORN (Dec 22—January 20)
Socialising with family and friends does nothing to stem your natural curiosity. Indeed it can fire your imagination. Something overheard next week gives you a great idea. Romantically, the New Year celebrations hold definite promise. Be in the right place when midnight chimes and discover someone special. An open mind and heart serve you best.
AQUARIUS (January 21—February 19)
You are feeling lucky and, even if you do not win, there will still be a smile on your face. Whatever has caused this warm, fuzzy feeling needs encouraging and what better time than at New Year? Although tempted to stay at home at the weekend, try being a little more adventurous. Give yourself the chance to grab an opportunity that could change your fortunes.
PISCES (February 20—March 20)
At times, it is hard to get properly involved in the festivities. There is something new that you are really keen to get on with. Even so, this is a precious and special time with loved ones. Make the very best of it. There will be many changes in the New Year and some of them can be influenced right now. Try to avoid things that you do not want to happen by paying attention!
ARIES (March 21—April 20)
Your natural flair for romance really comes to the fore next week. Keeping love alive is not always easy and yet if the desire is there, the rest will come naturally. The need to be with family and friends sees you enjoying time with both whenever possible. It is likely, though, that the demands on your time are far too high. Slipping away with a loved one to celebrate New Year seems tempting.
TAURUS (April 21—May 21)
Loving your home comforts and your friends, next week is likely to see you providing good food and drinks for the latter in great comfort. Your efforts are particularly appreciated by one person. It does not much matter if you are out to impress or not, you will do so! Just be aware that they could read more into your attentions than you intended. Still, who wants a dull life?
GEMINI (May 22—June 21)
An enjoyable and satisfying week ahead but also one in which some people may try to take advantage. Yes, sometimes you are far too generous for your own good. Let others pull their weight when organising a get-together. Being too easy-going may lead to disrespect. A gift given with lots of thought really impresses you. Could there be more to this attention than is at first clear?
CANCER (June 22—July 23)
It is a caring and creative time and you love being with others. There are some moments next week, though, when happiness is found in your own company. You may decide that settling down with a good book is better than going to a social event. Don’t let anyone make you feel guilty about your choices. Contentment is a rare enough feeling, so just enjoy it!
LEO (July 24—August 23)
Among all the excitement of this special week, you may be tempted to step outside of the social whirl. Your inner voice wants to say something to you and needs a bit of peace to get through. Instincts are strong as is your willingness to get closer to a loved one. Perhaps they need to realise your true worth before you make a declaration.
VIRGO (August 24—September 23)
Enjoy, next week, the attention that you deserve and enjoy. At times, you feel ten feet tall. Could this be because of a certain someone? Some of your dreams tell you that you are special and talented. Believe in yourself and use your charm and talents to impress. Just be yourself when in an intimate setting. A smile and a soft word at the right time gets results.
LIBRA (September 24—October 23)
Step up into the light next week. Show your many talents. Others feel very warm towards you because of your natural charm. Someone who gives you attention may not be taking the right approach for you. Let them know what you are looking for and see if they are able to adapt to your way of thinking. Realise that you have great bargaining power when discussing the year ahead.
SCORPIO (October 24—November 22)
Your joy when indulging in festive fun with friends and family is evident enough next week. What others may not realise is that you have some pretty exciting plans for the New Year. They start midweek with tentative forays into unknown territory. Being brave and adventurous is all part of your new way forward. The weekend, for you, really is a fresh start!
SAGITTARIUS (November 23—Dec 21)
With all the excitement of the festivities, one would expect you to have little time for plotting and planning. However, such is your incentive to get on with a pet project that you may even be working on it this week! Do, however, take proper time to enjoy a family event at the weekend. Relationships will always be more important than success for you.
