October 15 to October 21
Aries
[ March 21 to April 20 ]

You may chase false hopes. Your efforts to win back a former friend presently hobnobbing with your adversaries could end in smoke.

Taurus
[ April 21 to May 20 ]
With Venus on ascendancy, emphasis will be on love and socialising. You donít need to keep a grip on your purse-strings.
Gemini
[ May 21 to June 21 ]
A week full of hope. Social commitments will prove exorbitant but there will be ample resources to fall back upon. Wednesday will be your lucky day.
Cancer
[ June 22 to July 22 ]
Avoid reposing confidence in an Aquarian. An alliance with a Leo or a Piscean will give a shot in your arm.
Leo
[ July 23 to Aug 22 ]
Your stars advise you not to waste time in frugal measures. You will feel exploited at home. Keep your facts clear to avoid being cheated.
Virgo
[ Aug 23 to Sept 22 ]
You will be on an earning spree. A highly productive phase when past efforts will pay rich dividends and you will be at the top career-wise.
Libra
[Sept 23 to Oct 22 ]
Venus, your main star, is in the limelight. If interested in the sale and purchase of stocks, you need to act wisely.
Scorpio
[Oct 23 to Nov 22 ]
Donít insist you are the only able custodian of wisdom. You need to look beyond your narrow interests and thwart your ego.

Sagittarius
[ Nov 23 to Dec 22]

Jupiter is the player in your private and professional life. A comfortable and fulfilled life lies ahead. Watch out for a surprise during the weekend.
Capricorn
[Dec 23 to Jan 20]
You seem lined up for a pat on your back. However, every thing that comes to you will be due to your efforts.
Aquarius
[ Jan 21 to Feb 19 ]
Your belief that being a responsible Aquarian, you can do no wrong is a misconjecture. Self-praise is no recommendation. Remember to err is human.
Pisces
[Feb 20 to March 20 ]
There is nothing you cannot achieve during the week. If you donít act now, you may never have the chance to build yourself again.
