The plight of a close friend or relative trapped in an unfortunate situation could touch you. Any attempts to help could backfire, so be careful.
[ June 22 to July 22 ]
The moon is forming a strong link up with your natal sign. It may save you from spending your energy on frivolous matters. You should concentrate only on issues which are urgent.
[ July 23 to Aug 22 ]
The tasks before you are enough to keep you busy. The tasks you felt were no longer relevant could catch your fancy now. You will hardly have any breathing time.

Communication with like-minded people should be given priority. Make amends with all those who are no longer on good terms with you. Donít hesitate to oblige them.

[Oct 23 to Nov 22 ]
Your stars incline you to remain on the move. There is hardly any scope for attending to home and domestic affairs. You will, however, come into contact with new people.
[ Nov 23 to Dec 22]
Business matters could weigh heavily on your mind. You could face health problems. Eating healthy food could be beneficial.
[Dec 23 to Jan 20]
Your habit of enjoying first and then attending to work is not likely to stand you in good stead. Younger members of your family could pose problems.
[ Jan 21 to Feb 19 ]
Donít let ego get in the way of a special relationship. This is an opportune occasion to convince friends that you are their best hope. Saturday is good for bridging the gap among friends.
[Feb 20 to March 20 ]
There seems to be a lot going on behind the scenes. You will remain in two minds whether to adopt a proactive strategy or to wait and watch. The period is unproductive.

August 18

Rare moments of love, laughter, inspiration and sincerity of purpose are coming your way. Mars is no longer debilitated. This change implies that the mist has cleared and a bright dawn is about to light up your life. You will soon be discovering your talents and reaping the reward of your past efforts.

The signs are that you can even persuade a stubborn opponent to toe your line. If you are active in outdoor life, sports or related activities, you will be adding lustre to your reputation.

August 19

You may feel a little overburdened with work, social calls and routine home had family obligations. The stress level, however, will not be as high as you have envisaged. You can expect plenty of fun and excitement also. The only cloud on the horizon is your tendency to be provoked easily. You must, therefore, take care to see that you donít lose your cool.

In the beginning you may face a tough time in expanding the area of your influence and authority but as soon as the new year rings in there will be smooth sailing.

August 20

With a combust Mars in the limelight, you should be in an adventurous mood. Donít get entangled in a risky venture. You might lose your hard-earned money. Your apprehensions about future are genuine and there is need to move with caution.

Someone may pester you for money but you have to protect your funds from being misused. You may fail to muster enough courage to force your decisions. It is, however, praiseworthy if you are cautious but make it a point to not be pessimistic. Beware of a sweet-talking stranger who will sweep you off your feet now and then let you down.

August 21

Mercury in the house of finance turns the tables all of a sudden. You may be doing pretty well, especially on financial grounds, but there are chances that you may do still better during the coming year. Time-saving devices and some new ways of adding to your income could smoothen your way. Expect good luck to come your way.

September-October are important months for social gains. A pleasant journey is on the cards during December-January. You must not, however, exert beyond limits during March-April. Relax when your body demands rest.

August 22

The coming year should be a memorable one with your self-confidence high, your personal affairs falling into place and your financial situation on sound footing. There is a strong possibility of your leading a happy, contented and a carefree life. Travel and social encounters will help you to gain popularity and an elevated social stature. It is an equally rewarding time to strike bargains, sell stocks and book reasonably high profits. You could gain from the experience of some experts also. As a cautious investor, you will leave nothing to chance and make hay while the sun shines.

August 23

Team work and cooperation have now assumed much greater importance. It is your turn to come out of your shell and advertise your achievements. Make future prosperity your immediate goal and do not shy away from the challenges that come your way.

A spell of good luck is on the way during the first quarter. The pace of events may speed up during the second. Life should be a bed of roses during the third. Donít grudge what you do for others during the last one.

August 24

You are heading towards an expensive phase which may keep you off-colour for a pretty long time. The frivolous and unreasonable demands of your friends and relative may make the situation worse. You may be tempted to indulge in bad bargains. You are advised to be very careful with your money for the time being.

A few generous gestures on your part may drain your funds. An alarming rise in your day-to-day expenditure may give you sleepless nights, especially from January onwards.
