This week sees you participating actively in community affairs. Sales people can tempt you with sundry - but unnecessary - wares. This is a great time to catch up on miscellaneous health needs.


You may find yourself in a mood for fun, but your partner is subdued and possessive individuals try to cramp your style. Finding lost items is a current trend. Celebrations happen in pairs.


Your self-confidence gets a boost when you are called on to meet an exciting challenge. Thursday and Friday the accent is on legal matters.


For singles, this is a great time for lighthearted romance, perhaps with an Gemini friend. Thrift should be a current byword - it's to your advantage to play the miser this week.


Saving is the current byword. With ingenuity, you can save a significant sum. A colleague or neighbour may appear aloof earlier in the week.


Healthwise, be sure to question instructions that are not clear. The accent is on quality over quantity, especially if shopping for antiques or hobby related items.


Relatives turn to you with their aches and pains, and patience is the keyword. Pets figure in the picture - perhaps you are asked to find them a home.


Enjoy quiet dinners and pleasant jaunts to romantic spots. Behind-the-scenes happenings will lead to increased status in the near future. Accent the practical in home improvement schemes.


You can be drawn into the inner circle at work or in a community group. News from faraway is encouraging, but have all the details before drawing to conclusions or making arrangements.


Small feuds can blossom into a battle of wits, so sign a peace treaty as soon as possible. Your partner may be preoccupied with a family problem. Be supportive, but don't intrude.


Cash may arrive from a surprise source, but avoid making risky investments. An obstacle in your career path cannot be ignored. Travel information should be verified by someone in the know.


The week includes a blend of intrigue, glamour and local travel. Thursday and Friday are outstanding for concluding projects. Earlier in the week emphasizes reconciliations and conferences.
