Your weekly horoscope: February 3 to 9 2019
What do the stars hold in store for you?
20 January – 18 February
At last! You're willing to take some real risks to get what you want. The question though, is, what is that, exactly? In love, you're needing variety and excitement - all in one person. If that's asking too much, how about working on yourself first? Work, meanwhile, requires courage of another kind. It's time for a change, and you're the one to make it.
19 February – 20 March
Good grief. So there's a powerful leader inside that shy little flower, after all. Excellent. Now that you've found your courage, drag out every ounce so it will never feel discouraged enough to leave again. First - if it makes you feel more comfortable - ask for help. And when you've done that, make five important decisions - and stick to them. A great start. No one will ever mess with you again. You won't let them.
21 March – 19 April
Out of the blue, family members are suddenly on your side - offering unexpected help. Keep your suspicions under control. The offer is genuine. And in fact, a little trust may soon provide some new and unusual ways of making extra money - while indulging in all the creative pursuits you love most. Start soon though. The winds are about to change. And you have work to do.
20 April – 20 May
A new enthusiasm has been hiding under a cloud of responsibility for far too long. But finally, you're bursting with a positive outlook of the type that literally makes dreams come true. This is your moment to ignore your fears and accept the gifts for what they are. You'll be luckier in groups than alone now - so get ready to exchange ideas and move quickly.
21 May – 20 June
So you're back in overdrive, ready to take on the entire universe singlehanded, are you? Excellent. But if you could pace yourself a little, you might also keep the blood pressure below boiling. Not only that, a clear plan of action will keep you focused - while a desire to co-operate will keep you generous. Even so, watch out for dodgy contracts. Read the fine print.
21 June – 22 July
If you're struggling to get up in the morning, stay there a while longer. Don't beat yourself up. Next week your energy returns in stereo. Meanwhile, focus on your love life. It's going well (as long as you resist the power struggles) and, if you let yourself, you could become a real romantic. You know you want to. A little trust is all it takes.
23 July – 22 August
It's all up to you. Once you've had the courage to take the initial step, others will see what you can do and help you with the rest. After that, if you need any extra assistance, wait for flashes of inspiration while you're pondering over the price of a new hairdo. Meanwhile, spend some time on your health. Your emotions have gone out of balance - and taken your body along with them.
23 August – 22 September
Aahh! That's better. These are energies you can understand. Slowly you find it easier to be your best - and much more enthusiastic about getting there. Oddly, with all the distractions, money seems to have lost its position at the front of your queue. But while you're looking elsewhere, stirrings of new ideas are on the move. As are people who want to help you make it happen.
23 September – 22 October
You're being grumpy with the lovers again. Better stop right there. The real problem is about unspoken rages - not to mention the occasional leaping hormone (guys too). It's time to take a deep breath and tell the truth. If you can find good reasons to stay, make a new commitment. Or leave if you'd rather. But stop messing about. At work expect improvements. Soon.
23 October – 21 November
Getting what you want isn't the problem. It's paying the price that goes with it that's giving you ulcers. For some reason, you've convinced yourself you have to be a rat to attain your goals. Try seeing the problem more as an exchange of energy: you give something, you get something back. How about a massage? You're so tight, you're about to snap.
22 November – 21 December
There's an earnest tone to your week as you wonder how you can help make the world a better place. The only snag is, these feelings are interfering with your ambitions. And as you know, there's nothing harder to handle than an attack of conscience. Fear not. You'll easily find ways to be of use. After that, you can get back to soaring skyward. As usual.
22 December – 19 January
There's a very small dilemma here. Do you ask nicely for what you want? Or do you seize and destroy? Well, actually, if you wait until Tuesday, you'll lose the urge to do either. Not that you'll be turning into a wimp as the sun goes down. It's just that your focus will be more on pleasing others than impressing yourself. You'll be looking for love, and finding ways to take care of the ones who love you. Nothing wrong with that.
