Either way, you’re not at your best, so keep to yourself and have some early nights. Gemini May 21 – Jun 20 It may be best to avoid that friend who has been annoying you of late, or else you won’t be able to keep your mouth shut.

Don’t hurt each other unnecessarily. Virgo Aug 23 – Sep 22 Before you know it, you may nd that you are embroiled in a ght over money. This is likely to be with someone you have close nancial ties with and it is best the two of you bring things out into the open.

You need not accept his/her rude behaviour. Scorpio Oct 23 – Nov 21 It is going to be very hard for you to hide your contempt for that certain person.

The best way to express this is to play a game of competitive sport. Capricorn Dec 21 – Jan 20 A family feud threatens to spoil the atmosphere at home this week. It is, however, denitely better to get things onto the table than to have people moping about suppressing their anger and/or hurt feelings. Aquarius Jan 21 - Feb 18 You could be a danger to yourself and others if you at all attempt to drive when you are angry. You must have heard that expression that there are no accidents, so don’t say you have not been warned… Pisces Feb 19 – Mar 20 You’re feeling rather possessive of your things this week, so it is going to be very easy to get annoyed with someone whom you feel does not respect your property. Perhaps this has been coming for a while, so have your say.
