he Anger Games made a strong impression on me. I have experienced all forms of domestic abuse and it's the emotional abuse that often causes the most damage. I met my ex-husband when I was 18. He was charming and influential, and I quickly began to lose sight of who I was, without realising. He did not physically assault me until I was 23, but I knew deep down it was where the relationship was going. lt wasn't until he went on to rape me when I was more than six months pregnant that I realised I had to get out. I had a condition called placenta praevia, which means having sex can cause fatal harm both to the baby and the mother, yet he continued to rape me. Last month, he was convicted of raping me and another woman. I did not value myself enough, which is why I ended up in this kind of toxic situation. I hope other women know that they are important enough to deserve better. Name withheld This month's star letter wins a BlackBerry Bold9790, worth £249. The new smartphone is powerful, full-featured and built with premium materials and finishes. For more information, visit uk.blackberry.com When I read the first paragraph of The Anger Games, my heart began to race. I work for the police and a large part of my job is taking details from people in horrible domestic situations. If you'd asked the old me, I'd have told you I'd walk away from an abusive partner in a heartbeat. I had been with my partner for 18 mvonths when his jealousy escalated out of control and he became controlling to the

point of frightening. Embarrassed by my own weakness, I didn’t tell anyone what was going on. I stayed because I was convinced that if! gave up the friends he didn’t approve of and proved how dedicated I was to our relationship, the behaviour would stop. It didn’t. After finally confiding in a co-worker, I left him. That same month, I won tickets to go, with Tic, to a charity ball. It was the first time I felt like everything was going to be OK- and the photo I had taken that night has been in my purse ever since as a reminder. Thank you for continuing to address the important things. You have a loyal reader for life! Laura, by email The Anger Games really hit home. I was in the same position and it took me four years to work up the courage to get out of an emotionally abusive relationship. I changed from being an outgoing, confident person, to someone who developed anxiety and felt worthless. I lost all my friends, as I had been made to choose between him and them. And I’m sitting here now, in my own flat, listening to music I want to listen to without being criticised! However trapped anyone feels, emotionally or financially, I would strongly advise them to make that break; it will be the best thing you ever do. Name withheld, by email Recipes for success I just wanted to say that I loved your feature on cheaper lunches. The recipes shown on TV often have so many .... ingredients that they end up being too expensive to cook on a daily basis, and they rarely use up leftover ingredients in an exciting way (shepherd’s pie- yawn).


I loved the recipes printed in Tic - they’re fresh, healthy, cheap and easy! Caroline, by email

Mundane?

I don’t think so I’m surprised that a columnist in your magazine, which is such a spirited supporter of women’s confidence and happiness, should dismiss those who haven’t got the Big Job or made different choices to Louise Mensch as “naysayers” with “mundane lives”. Presumably she means you and me? Your readers, her (former) constituents, the electorate- who, in her eyes, are losers if we too haven’t managed to be an MP. She may paint her life as being wonderful, but to others, her many careers look like she’s trying desperately to get to the top of the mountain and not liking the view when she gets there. Having the confidence to go for what you want in life is something I wholeheartedly concur with. Sticking with it is what takes real strength. I don’t think judgement should be passed on what those dreams are. What seems “mundane” to Ms Menschstability, reliabi lity - might be “thinking big” to someone else. I’m not sure whether she’s trying to persuade herself, more than us, that she loves her life. Caroline Feraday, by email

What goes around...

I read Sorry, but is everyone sending naked pictures? with a shocked interest. I wanted to share my won experience. As the article mentions, men do lose their phones a lot. You know what else they do? They trade in their phones, upgrade their phones and book their phones

in for repair. My husband used to work for a high-street phone retailer and he once told me that when phones got traded in or booked in for repair, the first thing backroom staff would do was check through the owner’s pictures. They’d then text any ‘interesting’ photos to themselves and their friends, show the rest of the workforce, or upload them online. So, if you’d like absolute control over who sees these images, it’s probably best not to do it on a smartphone, unless you’re sure the recipient is going to properly erase the memory before trading up. Emily, by email

Men have food issues too.

Having just read What Men Really Think About Their Bodies, I was somewhat surprised to see no mention of the rise of eating disorders in men (a 66% increase in hospital admissions in the past ten years). As someone who has been in treatment for an eating disorder on and off for the past decade, the number of guys I have met suffering with the condition has increased significantly. Unfortunately, many are going undiagnosed because they feel it’s a female iII ness and that they won’t be taken seriously. The feature still made for an interesting read, but perhaps a mention of this could help raise awareness further and educate women (and men) about the signs to look out for in men they know.

things I don’t give

a s**t about

...and neither should you, says Peep Show star Isy Suttie. So take these things off your worry list now.

We all know it's so easy to behave how we think we should because we're afraid of sticking out or making mistakes. I've had more rejections than I've had hot, cold and lukewarm dinners, but I don't stop taking risks because I know I'm more free when I do, and I've had success that way, too. I've also learnt that there are so many pointless things we worry about in life that stop us being as happy as we could be. Here are my top five things to stop caring about right now.

“HER LIFE IS COOLER THAN MINE” SYNDROME

I’ve spent so much time on Facebook scrutinising other women’s figures, wrinkles and achievements from primary school to the present day, looking at them cooking stupid cupcakes with their stupid kids and wondering if I’ll ever be able to make any (cupcakes or kids). Here’s the truth: we all get old, no one’s ever completely happy with

the way they look, and Global Hypercolour T-shirts were a mistake. Because it’s all a game, any smugness you achieve feels hollow, yet any gloom feels all too real. After a Facebook fix, I used to feel like I’d gobbled down a cheap ready meal and was hungry half an hour later. You’ll never feel full. Go on Facebook with an alarm set for five minutes later, then Jog out and read a book. In a lovely bath! While drinking a Horlicks and Kahlua! (My own recipe: sounds disgusting but is, in fact, incredible.)

BLANK PAGE SYNDROME

Starting anything is hard, and the internet is a big distraction - I always give myself little rewa rds for every hour of work I do, like watching one video of 'animals who shouldn't be friend s but are' on YouTube. Then, of course, there 's the worst distraction - fear of failure. If you're really stuck, go for a walk - exercise can be really good for gettin g your brain to work. However, don't 'walk all the way to Oxford Street' like I did the other day (three hours) and come back once night has fallen, with a horrific tasselled emerald jacket, a ra-ra skirt that looks like it's made out of lentils - and no script, "ty and turn criticism or blips into part of a bigger learning curve, rather than focusing on how you 'failed' that one time. Don't waste time worrying how it might go wrong - just start it.

If I'm feeling a stressed out and some calm, I make mysel down three good things th happened to me that day gem from my mum. It mak you review the day and see positives. One of mine from other day says: "I saw a wo the bus today wearing a Ch hat. She was sober and alo it's May." But the woman lo so happy! Who was I to jud in my sombrero? My mum always right - she regularly play cassette tapes in DVD - but I think her 'three good advice is great. *lf James Fr was on top of me, however, would be fine. I wouldn't ne do three good things.

When I'm unsure about a guy, my friend Mhairi makes me look at a photo of myself as a happy toddler - I always choose the one where my sister and I are grinning "OW! SHE from ear to ear, covered head to toe in spaghetti bolognese. Then HIT ME!" Mhairi says, "Do you want this SYNDROME little girl to grow up and be with My mum's always [insert name of guy]?" And I look told me to agree w down at my little facef the gap bullies.

One day, w genuinely used to put bowls on someone said, "You're weird our heads and cut around them), instead of yelping, "Am-l-oh and the truth comes out. You can does-everyone-think-that- s see the millions of options ahead l-just-disappear?" I said, "Ye of this little girl - that she deserves am. Woooo!" She was stump something amazing. Mhairi had and I've carried it through in to do this when I was in a longmy adult life. A few years ag term relationship with a guy who after a gig, a male stand-up used to say, when we were in bed, to me, "I love how sweet and "I love you... at this moment. I lovely you are on stage - it's don't care or know about anything you don't care how badly it's outside this moment, but babe, at going." For a moment I felt t this moment, I love you." Then if searing nausea, like I was 16 I said I loved him when we had again. Then I grinned and sa our clothes on, say, in the kitchen "Thank you, I think I am love afterwards, he'd say he wasn't and gave him a massive hug ready to talk about it. Ah, if only ages. He didn't say anything he'd cooked me some spaghetti not least because he could ha bolognese. breathe. When people are bit it's code for 'I feel threatened you’. When you agree lightly, code for ‘Aww, poor you’. The have nowhere to go.

dont panic

Is anxiety taking over your life? There's good news: you can kick its butt, says Dr Jessamy Hibberd - a clinical psychologist who's spent a decade helpin g women conquer emotional fears, and now wants to do the same for you

I feel worried all the time. About whether I'll miss my train, if I locked the front door... it doesn't matter how insignificant. I also obsess about how things will pan out in three months, or why things failed in the past. It's exhausting. Amanda, 25 Continuous worrying makes you feel terrible, because you're always running through worstcase scenarios. So, next time you start to worry, think: 'Can I do anything about it?' If you can, make an action plan: what steps will you take and when (eg get up earlier, starting from tomorrow)? If there's no concrete solution, distract yourself from it: listen to music, phone a friend, play a game on your phone. The more absorbed you are in other activities, the less you'll worry. I get really anxious speaking to people I don't know; even simple phone calls like ordering a takeaway. I stumble over my words and my heart thuds. I'm better face to face - I think it helps that I can nod along - but I fall apart on the phone. Nicola, 28 Your fear of going blank has put you off using the phone so much that you've forgotten you can do it. First, take the pressure off by noting down what you want to say before you dial. If the person says their name, repeat it mid-conversation to make them feel less like a stranger. And if you stumble over your words, let yourse\f laugh - it will dispel any embarrassment. Challenge yourself to make one call a day and you'll soon see that nothing awful happens.

I'm a confident person, but at work I falter. Before a meeting, I get struck with nerves; even popping into my boss's office to ask a question makes me panic. I'm good at my job -I fought off a lot of competition to get it - but now my nervousness is making me less effective. Dawn, 30 When you're feeling anxious, it can negatively bias the way you think: you jump to conclusions and have less faith in your strengths. Work out what your underlying fear is. Being judged? Looking incompetent? Once you pinpoint it, destroy the fear by thinking of times when you've coped well in front of your boss. Even if something did go wrong, would it matter this time tomorrow? Be fairer to yourself. When something goes well, write it down - read the list back if you feel anxious.

WHAT NOT TO DO WHE N WOR RY STR IKES

HIT THE BOOZE Alcohol activates neurotransmitters that relax you, but as the booze wears off, your body compensates by speeding up your central nervous system, which can leave you feeling much more anxious. DRINK COFFEE Caffeine ups the panic factor by increasing your heart rate. SMOKE It might give you instant relief, but a side effect of nicotine withdrawal is anxiety, making you feel worse.

Leonardo Dicaprio thought i was a total a**e So not every celebrity is friends with Radio 1 Breakfast Show host Nick Grimshaw (just most of them). Celia Walden meets the most connected man in celebville. Lunch with Nick Grimshaw was always going to be a messy affair: a heady brew of gossip and alcohol.

CW [Laughing] Have you ever had a live interview go horribly wrong? NG I once had to do the Backstreet Boys on live TV and I had no idea who they were, so I said, "After the break we'll be back with 'N Sync." They thought it was a massive diss and they were like, "Fuck you." Then there was the time I interviewed Leonardo DiCaprio. I had no idea that he was this massive humanitarian so I asked him what he would do if he only had one hour to live and he said, "I'd save all the whales." Of course, I burst out laughing and he was like, "Why is that funny?" I thought he was going along with the joke so I said, "Of course, that's what I would do too! Haha!" He thought I was a total arsehole. CW Did you think he was sexy? NG No, I didn't [bursts out laughing]. Oh, and the stor y gets worse.

It wasn't: 'Go out and get wasted every night'. CW What do you look for in a bloke? N G I l i ke a n e x t r o v e r t. I ' m weird about fancying people.

“The thing men ask me more than anything else is how to resolve a fight. They always want to make peace, but they don’t know how to do it because they’re scared of making things worse. Don’t mistake his silence for not caring, it’s usually the opposite - he’s just trying to work out the right thing to say.” Angela Dolan, artistic director at Regis Salons

Reaching for the Pringles?

This could be stress. “When you’re under pressure, your adrenal glands pump out hormones to prepare your body for a fight or flight response,” says Dr Glenvile. “If your stress levels don’t ease up, your adrenal glands (which also regulate the body’s salt levels) become exhausted and you start craving salty foods. The answer? “De-stress by eating foods rich in vitamin B5, which supports your adrenal glands. Broccoli and salmon are good sources.”

“David B e c k h a m Eaten all the chocolate? m a d e m e f e e l w e i r d OK, we’d never turn it down. “But wanting chocolate excessively is linked to a lack of magnesium,” says Dr when i met him. envile. “Magnesium is called nature’s tranquiliser: I t w a s l i k e I ’ d n e v e r Gl it relaxes us when we’re stressed and eases period m e t a h u m a n b e i n g cramps.” However, Dr Glenvile points out that before” chocolate isn’t the best source of magnesium. Step away from that snack and give your body what it really needs You might write off that urge to scoff a Toffee Crisp as pure greed, but it could be a cry for help from your body. "Cravings are different to hunger, which is a drive to eat anything. When your body's willing you to eat a particular food, there may be a nutritional reason," says health expert Dr Marilyn Glenville. We get to the bottom of four common cravings.

Craving all things sugary?

You need more of the mineral chromium, not those Haribo Tangfastics. “Chromium is what keeps blood sugar levels in balance,” says Dr Glenvile. “It makes the pancreas produce insulin -the hormone that keeps blood sugar steady.” Too little chromium and that sweet tooth wil kick in, big time. Foods rich in chromium include shellfish, potatoes, tomatoes, onions and unrefined grains, such as oats and

“Wholegrains and leafy greens, such as kale and spinach, might not be exciting, but they’re much better for you.”

Cant function without your 8am caffeine fix?

You might be lacking iron - /70/the morning-person gene. “An iron deficiency wil make you feel tired because there are fewer red blood cells to carry oxygen around the body,” says Dr Glenvile. The most easily absorbable form of iron comes from red meat, but be careful not to eat more than 70g, the recommended daily quota. Dr Glenvile recommends dried fruit and beans as a good alternative.

Hungry? Drink a glass of water first

you have to be really dehydrated before your body triggers a feeling of thirst. Until then, the cravings you have food are often your body wanting fluids,” says Dr Glenvile.


EDITORS LETER

My Personal Style Rules Do you have a personal style? A signature look? I'm not really sure I do. Although I fear there's probably a book of magazine editors' laws somewhere that says I should. I asked my husband to pinpoint mine. He looked a bit pained and said, "I don't know! One day you have an Annie Hall vibe, the next you're in a hot dress. What's going on there?" It's a question I get all the time, and I'm yet to come up with a succinct answer. But here is my best attempt at what I consider to be the style rules I live by.

Wanna dress up todaY? DO IT!

I’m not really one for saving certain clothes ‘for best’. I’m know I’m lucky, working in a creative environment, that you really can wear what you want to our office. But what’s the point of having clothes you love if you only wear them for limited occasions? So if I want to wear the fancy top I wore out to dinner last week at Sainsbury’s this Saturday, then I will! This leads very nicely to:

The country is in grave danger. The royal family has too much money, its unfair to the human race. They need to learn a lesson. This is where you come in. We need YOU to work on an undercover mission for the Secret Service. It is your job to redistribute their wealth to the common man. Stop at nothing. People will be trying to stop you, but dont believe anyone until you complete the mission.

G

wyneth Paltrow

begs to be forgiven as she abandons her salad to text on her phone. Then she explains conspiratoriaily, one woman to another, "My husband's got the kids." No further explanation necessary. Husbands left in charge of the children need checking on from time to time. Women understand this. But it's the comradely insight into this particular marriage (one so famous that only royalty could surpass it) that's so refreshing. Gwyneth and her husband, Coldplay singer Chris Martin, are on holiday in Los Angeles for a couple of weeks, and while she's here for lunch at a beachside restaurant to promote her latest health-conscious cookery book, It's All Good, Chris is taking their two kids, Apple, nine, and Moses, seven, rock climbing. Salivating while discussing the merits of a ripe Californian avocado with just a little sea salt on glutenfree toast, Gwyneth is obviously hands-on about food too. “I’ve always been a good home cook,” she explains, helping herself to some bread and butter. “My friends have always called me and said, ‘How do I make this?’” Dressed in a vintage Levi’s all-in-one, with flat sandals, no make-up and her blonde hair all natural and unstyled, Gwyneth looks like a radiant earth mother 1resh out of the corn field. Her skin is clear, freckled and wrinkle-free. Her body is lithe and toned. If ever there were an ad for eating healthily, it would be her. But it was a health scare last spring - a migraine, that she mistook for a stroke - that inspired the book. “Blood tests revealed several other issues,” she explains. “I felt really imbalanced, exhausted, stressed out. And I was told that the best way to heal most problems is to eat better.” Doctors suggested an elimination diet - no dairy, alcohol, caffeine, eggs, sugar, corn, wheat, gluten or red meat. And three weeks later, she was tested again. “It was really incredible. I saw the numbers on the blood work. And that’s what convinced me.” At the same time that she was cutting all the fun out of her diet, Chris

was getting ready to tour. “He was focused on eating well to prepare for the tour, so I started developing these recipes- Nothing processed and nothing toxic, but still delicious,” she says earnestly. “And that’s how the book came about. It came out of a need in a very organic way.” Although her recipes are based loosely ground her elimination diet, the book is not quite as rigid. There are recipes with red meat included and she admits she likes to wash many of them down with a glass of wine. “I try to use the book as a general guideline,” she says. “Sometimes the kids want a cookie, and that’s fine. But my son has eczema, and gluten is really irritating to his skin, so when I can, I’ll do quinoa pasta or risotto with brown rice, and I notice such a difference in all my family’s health, and mood and skin.” Gwyneth has also recently returned to the big screen in iron Man 3, in which she plays Pepper Potts, opposite Robert Downey Jnr. She’s a rare sighting at the movies these days - she only agrees to one film a year and never as the main lead. “Having children changed everything,” she says. “I used to work all the time, but if you do that, you don’t see your kids, so I look for something that’s interesting, that doesn’t require me to be in every scene and fits in with my children’s school schedule.” Being at a point in her career where she is able to make that kind of choice suggests something of the idyll. After winning her Oscar for Shakespeare In Love at 26, she’s since become an author, businesswoman and style icon. She and Chris own homes in London, New York and, as of this year, Lo; Angeles. That’s the kind of lifestyle that could give a girl airs and graces. But Gwyneth isn’t like that. She talks like a really good girlfriend might - grounded, thoughtful and caring. She has a great, throaty laugh, with a matching sense of humour, but also an understanding that the best things in life can be fleeting. “I’ve had a great deal of suffering in my life,” she says unexpectedly, when asked if her life is really one to be envied. “I’ve lost people - my

Your medicine cabinet should look like this QUETIAPINE

Quetiapine is similar to clozapine in its ability to reduce psychosis without causing significant worsening of motor symptoms. However, it does not cause agranulocytosis and is therefore, the first choice for many clinicians.

CLOZAPINE.

Clozapine was once considered the best antipsychotic medication for PD patients. However, due to a rare yet serious side effect known as agranulocytosis, it is now primarily used if quetiapine is not tolerated or effective. Agranulocytosis is a reduction in white blood cells, which interferes with the body’s ability to fight infection. Patients on clozapine are required to get weekly blood tests for the first six months and then every two weeks to monitor white blood cell levels.

side effects 26

Some people have side effects when they start taking these medications. Most side effects go away after a few days and often can be managed successfully. People who are taking antipsychotics should not drive

RISPERIDONE

Risperidone (Risperdal ®) and olanzapine (Zyprexa ®) are two additional “atypical” antipsychotic agents. Unlike clozapine and quetiapine, these drugs may carry a greater risk for aggravating Parkinson’s symptoms.

GEODON AND ABILIFY Furthermore, there are two new antipsychotic agents on the market that are currently being studied to determine their effectiveness and safety for PD patients. These agents are geodon (Ziprasidone ®) and abilify (Aripiprazole ®).

The truth about food intolerances and hypnosis COULD MY 'FOOD BABY' BE AN INTOLERANCE? "People are quick to put discomfort down to an intolerance and start cutting out useful foods such as wheat or dairy," says dietitian Laura Clark. 'The problem is more likely to be how you eat (too fast) and how much (too much)," says Amanda Hamilton, author of Eat, Fast, Slim. "But if you're convinced food's the issue, culprits include wheat, gluten, dairy, eggs and caffeine. Eliminate one for at least two weeks. If you feel better, it may be an intolerance. If you're not sure, consider a reliable service such as York Test Error! Hyperlink reference not valid.) or ask your doctor or a dietitian (freelancedietitians.org) about testing. Beware dodgy internet and high-street testing services. And remember, the goal is to gradually reintroduce the food, not give it up for life."

I'VE HEARD HYPNOSIS CAN WORK FOR IBS - REALLY? "Really," says Professor Whorwell at Wythenshawe Hospital, Manchester, a clinical hypnotherapist and pioneer of the treatment in IBS sufferers. "Research supports its use. Of the last 1,000 patients we've treated at the hospital, two thirds have improved. The brain-gut axis is strong and by speaking to the subconscious mind, we can teach patients to control gut function" There are only a few NHS hospitals that offer hypnosis for IBS, but you can ask your GPfor a referral or find a practitioner via the British Society of Clinical and Academic Hypnosis (bscah.com) ask for someone who specialises. "Or give self-hypnosis a go," says Professor Whorwell. "Most patients have a visual image of their symptoms - perhaps a fire, a rushing river or a knot. During hypnosis, we help turn this into a more positive image. So if your symptom is constipation, listen to relaxing music and visualise your gut as a river flowing. If you have the reverse problem, visualise a dam, or the river drying up."

TRY THIS MINDFUL MUNCHING It’s time to re-think the way you eat

Experts agree a lot of our digestive problems could be alleviated if we took the time to eat slowly and thoughtfully. "Good digestion starts in the mouth, with proper chewing to get saliva flowing and kick-start the production of digestive enzymes further down the system," says nutritionist Amanda Hamilton. "Sit down to eat meals, don't multitask through them, put your cutlery down between mouthfuls. Taking it slow allows time for satiety signals to reach your brain from your stomach, so you don't overeat." Try this to get back in touch with your eating.

Dear Chef Paltrow

Some gastronomic stars pose the questions... JAMIE OLIVER Have you forgiven me for making your ride the rollercoaster for Food Fight Club? And what's the best thing our friend Mario Batali has cooked for you? Yes, and I'd do it again because you're so cute! And Mario cooks boquerones. These little Spanish anchovies on a stick, wrapped around a hot pepper. They're so good. RACHEL KHOO When I write my books, there’s always a recipe that takes a while to perfect. Which recipe took you several tests to get right? Two-Pan Chicken. I do a chicken that can be cooked under a brick in a pizza oven. I wanted the same result on a home stove, and it took a while to get the exact crispiness. BILL GRANGER What do you feed your children’s I friends? My kids’ friends only eat pesto pasta! What I’ve learned is: give them choice and anything on a stick that they can dip themselves. In my book, I have Japanese meatballs with a dipping sauce. Kids love it. GIZZI ERSKINE I’m known for doing pop-up restaurants. If you were to do one, what | dishes from your book would you cook? I would make a California!! pop-up restaurant in London with all the healthy salads from the book and tuna burgers, salmon burgers and tacos. MARY BERRY Do you have a recipe for a healthy Bcake, and how would you make it tasty? I have a great recipe for a healthy cake in the book. It uses real cocoa powder and chocolate. But I also have a secret ingredient when I make cakes: I put espresso in. It gives a good depth of flavour.

YOU YOU YOU

Read yourself happy Monday, 8am - and you're squashed between commuters. Yet the man next to you is laughing loudly at his Kindle. How? Scientists have found that reading can improve your mood. A study by Glasgow University found people with depression who read self-help books for a year have their mood boosted more than those who just have the usual GP care. "Depression alters how the regions of the brain communicate. Reading (self-help or not) seems to correct abnormal patterns of connection," says Dr Rajeev Krishnada from the university. Which got us thinking about the books that make us smile. Verdict? These six.

ticscope Summer is here - yeah! - but the weather isn't the only hot new thing this month. Need details? Here's TIC'S astrologer Maggie Hyde Gemini (today) It's your birthday! Celebrate with a personal peek st June — and the coming year LOVE Looking back over your past loves, you can say one thing: they've been varied. So, how serious are you now? If you feel nervous when a heavy conversation looms, chances are that person does matter. See through surface differences and don't run from the next big step around the 26th. It could provide the security you crave. Work Resist the temptation to skim over tasks; this month, especially, being thorough reaps big. Your warm personality adds a human touch to team dynamics, and with your finger on the pulse of new trends your input is valued. An event on the 3rd - and

a fruitful conversation around the 24th — consolidate how important you are. Friendship Things tend to interest you for about, um, ten seconds - but friends love your fast chatter and unpredictable nights, and you're never short of invitations. This month's most important one involves an activity you'd never usually try. A friend has a change in direction around the 8th — things rarely surprise you, but this just might. Money Be creative with your free time on the 7th and 26th and you'll find you can stretch cash further. Keep small but frequent expenses in check — that way, when Jupiter hits your money zone at the end of June, you'll have done the groundwork to continue the year in a happy money place. Your year ahead it’s a busy 12 months, with so much to juggle that love could feel like a distraction you don’t need. Until autumn, when someone reminds you what you’ve been missing. Home and work changes come together in August, so go for what you want don’t settle for second best. Work options pop up again in February, when someone asks you to be involved in their plans. Hey, if you’re in demand, don’t argue.


CANCER

SCORPIO

PISCES

You have influence in key areas of your life, and when Jupiter — planet of fortune — enters your sign on the 26th, you're encouraged to take risks. That said, if you're pulling out of a project, protect what you've already achieved, then move on without regrets.

An old score is settled when the moon crosses into a new plane on the 20th. If there's something you've been putting off taking part in, it isn't as much hassle as you'd imagine - and there's potential to meet some great new friends. What are you waiting for?

A task or situation coming to an end fe»els like a landmark. Around the 12th, a development involving travel or foreign connections could catapult you into making a decision about; a lifestyle change. You'll be called on to help someone at work: try to spin feeling burdened into being flattered that others have faith in your skills.

LEO

SAGITTARIUS

From the 19th, you feel like you're where you want to be. You're not used to slacking off, so now enter phase two: using your success as a. stepping stone to bigger ambitions. Elsewhere, if a partner seems quiet, it doesn't mean trouble. It means they're totally content being with you.

Hurry! Jupiter makes its big move on the 26th, so connect with someone who can move things forward and you'll make short work of unfinished business. But as one thing ends, something new starts. Whether it's change at home or a new relationship, it's worth celebrating. You have a fabulous year to come.

(tomorrow)

VIRGO

(tomorrow)

Power games at work between you and a male colleague may seem trivial, but if you suspect that he'll never let up, plan how to outsmart him on the 7th. Love-wise, wellchosen words over the phone or by post will touch the places a text or email can't reach.

LIBRA

(tomorrow)

Going for promotion? Show what you bring on a professional and personal level and you'll stand out from the competition. A lover stomping around on the 8th needs a gentle reminder that you have other people to be there for too. Don't avoid it, he'll understand.

(tomorrow)

CAPRICORN (tomorrow)

You've been waiting to have an issue or sale signed off, but the delay in doing so actually suits you - giving you more room to manoeuvre around the 12th. Lovewise, you feel like you're holding your breath waiting for something to go wrong. But they mean what they say. Create private moments together and you'll see the proof.

AQUARIUS (tomorrow)

While work trundles along just fine, you're left wishing your love life could be so easy. You're done playing guessing games about where you stand with someone; if a relationship has truly gone cold, reconsider your options on the 17th when an exciting newcomer pops up. You'll have the type of fun you haven't had in ages.

(tomorrow)

ARIES

(tomorrow)

Seeing both aspects of a situation makes it difficult to come down on anyone's side, so don't let yourself be pressured. When you feel someone is being truly honest, that's when you'll be happy to give your support. Blurting out some home truths around the 7th could cause more drama than it solves. It may be worth biting your tongue.

TAURUS (tomorrow)

You're easily bored when it seems all some people want to talk about is money. Don't waste your time feeling jealous of what they have. Instead, focus on creative pursuits. Tickets to an exhibition or comedy stand-up start a new phase in your social life. Say yes to invitations, and keep an eye open for possible romance.
