Aries 21 March-20 April
Libra 24 September-23 October
With the simmering Sun and magnificent Mars in excellent celestial spirits, you're raring to go this week. Your love life will lead you to some romantic meetings, bringing out passions and desires you thought were long dead. A creative urge should be assuaged, so take the initiative and assert your natural talents. A secret may have to be revealed, so be ready to bare your soul to save an emotional rebuff.
A dynamic and decisive approach to your aspirations will push you to the top of the tree. Future ambitions should be taken off the shelf and dusted down, for you have the impetus to make something of yourseE A chap with a track record of being conceited, arrogant and seEish could turn out to be one of the best friends you ever had, when he reveals a much sweeter side to his nature.
Star points for the year ahead. This month, the stellai spotlight falls on the lion.
24 October-22 November A clash of interests or, more accurately, egos and ambitions, will make this week yet another landmark in your life. You can't stand being put in a position where you haven't got your finger on the pulse; you need to be in control in order to feel secure. If you put a foot wrong this week, the trembling, fumbling planets; could cause you to fall into any negative traps around you. So avoid making reckless moves.
21 AprU~21 May
The home and family go to the top of your league of life, but one booby trap could be the overbearing attitude of a man in your midst. Don't be overwhelmed by his tyrannical tirade; instead, stand your ground, but not to the point of total intransigence. To get the best out of your kith and kin this week, you've got to know when to compromise and when it's necessary to stick to your principles. Gemini 22 May-21 June
A terrific time is forecast if you're the sort who likes going off on sprees and giving in to your whims. Your critics may describe you as being inconstant or capricious, but I see it as an unquenchable longing to improve your mind and taste the other side of life. A chance to organise or reveal hidden talents could emerge in your immediate environment or neighbourhood. You're a tower of strength to many. Cancer 22 June-23 July
With a desire to acquire prominence this week, there's no doubt you must concentrate upon material and financial matters. You'll be granted an opportunity to make some money in double-quick time, either with a wonderful windfall, or via a clever investment or a cautious speculation. Whatever your aims, just convince yourself you've acquired the Midas touch and you'll make a profit, however small. 24 July-23 August _ Although the general tone of the sky is very positive, you must eradicate niggling doubts from your world if you're going to stand any chance of getting your house in order. Somehow, you come across as obsessive with a touch of megalomania in your nature and, unless you temper your desire for power, you could bring out the worst in others. Be careful that you don't self-destruct. 24 August-23 September
A build-up of emotional problems can be released over the coming week, with the help of someone who really cares for you and your welfare. You are, at times, much too preoccupied with paranoid qualms that have no basis in reality. It's better, therefore, to leave people or situations that upset you, well alone. Only selfless causes and aims will help you to benefit from this rather complex situation.
You radiate warmth and a generous disposition. FOR MANY Leos it's been a heavy old year, with their dens being turned upside down through Scorpio's unsettling influence. Many of you will have felt restricted by domestic ties which, in turn, have thrown up all sorts of psychological problems. Love There have been a number of interesting meetings, and there may yet be an amour who sets your heart pounding. If you've been in a tizz about being a one-girl guy or a one-guy gal, or flirting around, you may find the decision made for you, as your love life
generally settles down to a comfortable, more manageable pace. You, personally, radiate warmth and a generous disposition. Luck Jupiter gives some very protective rays around your relationships — it's a year of burying the hatchet and building happy times. Loot It's a year for looking after the pennies — and they need looking after as money will be tight. You're going to have to work hard for every shekel, so there's even more reason not to cut corners if you have to employ people to do work for you. Life Clear out the cobwebs from the corners of your life, whether people or situations. Be Leonine and king of your own life — make decisions and don't be influenced by others. The year marks a turning point — probably the most important one in your life. Mary O'Bara, like all Leos, will find that the strong influences of Saturn and Pluto offer the chance of a new direction in life — greater things beckon. See her in 'Mary O'Hara and Friends' on Sunday (ITV).
Sog'tttorJUS 23 NOV-ZI December Being born under the sign of the traveller, you'll greet the sunshine energies of the Sun and Mars with much applause, for you're set to experience growth and expansion in your life. This is the time to be bold, for the more you dare, the more you'll win. Holidays taken now will prove to be an interesting encounter in more ways than one, but use this time for expanding your knowledge, too. 22 December-20 January
A deeply emotional period is prolonged by planetary influences throughout August. It's possible — even probable — you'll cross someone's path who will turn you on sexually, and who could have some kind of inexplicable 'hold' over you. You'll know who they are by their penetrating eyes or pulsating personality; you may even dislike or be fearful of them at your first meeting or later, on reflection. AquariUS 21 January- 19 February When it comes to relating to others, you've never been too keen on getting involved — it restricts your personality or imprisons your individuality. You're very proud of being unique and conserving your originality. It's now, however, that . you must push personal wants and wishes to the background. Your relationships must take precedence before they disintegrate into nothingness. PlSCeS 20 February-20 March
Take a good look at your working environment and see where improvements can be made. Perhaps you're not treating your colleagues as equals, or they're not responding to you as well as you might have hoped. Whatever it is, a new, more positive, assertiveness and energy must be injected into your job or position. Medical matters will be eased thanks to vital, healing, lifegiving rays. 20-26 July 1985 TVTIMES
