Horoscopes: want a more personalised reading?
A monthly horoscope may be a good indicator of what happens in a month but these horoscopes assume there are only 12 people in the world. Your own personal horoscope is more detailed than this column. Why not contact Franco for your own personalised reading.
Aries (March 20 – April 20)
Don’t just sit there whining about your situation. Figure it out and take action as a good Aries should. You are working through many issues in the background, but that should sway your judgments about the situation you find yourself in. Your philosophical outlook on life is being adjusted to suit the surroundings. Don’t do the same thing because it worked ten years ago. Life moves on, and so should you. While your dreams might change with the years, so should your aim. Watch for arguments for argument’s sake; instead, go for the point you want to make.
Taurus (April 20 – May 21)
Don’t dwell in the past, like getting all riled up about what happened or who said what. Look to where you see yourself in 10, 20 or 40 years, regardless of your age. It is never too late to change your philosophy in life. It is really just about a bit of education and dialogue. I think of the Clint Eastwood movie Gran Torino, where a somewhat racist old Vietnam vet changes his views about the Vietnamese family next door. Look to having some fun with your friends, but make sure you are clear about their intentions. Don’t get duped into their inside games.
Gemini (May 21 – June 21)
There was an old blues song by Mississippi Fred McDowell called You Gotta Move, which is what you need to do. Get active, shake, and boogie because if you internalise that energy, you will resort to what you can do by rote – argue. Many people have certain ideals that they expect in their careers. Keep your emotions in check, and do not come across as the know-it-all. Being judgmental will backfire and have that come back at you. Look to play nice in the sandbox, and don’t forget to draw on that wisdom you have learned from the past.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
You have to embrace your spirituality. It is part of who you are; even if you don’t resonate with organised religions, you will find your way. Part of that is also following what will make you a better person and perform well in all aspects of life, whether you are a parent, a boss, or a volunteer. Make sure you honour your path, no matter what it is. Don’t be afraid to hang out with friends who like to push the boundaries because you tend to function on the straight and narrow path. Try to make friends with those you work with because life will go by much more effortlessly.

Leo (July 22 – August 23)
Life is good this month, and you want to have fun, but be careful about the uncertainty around your career. Despite wanting to be seen, like living in a glass house, ensure you don’t expose yourself. You might want to make a splash by taking a radical approach. It could work but choose your words wisely. Don’t push power struggles to the point of conflict. Seek to make philosophical changes to enhance your life and use those persuasive powers to your benefit. Relationships might present problems, but nothing working through them will not help.
Virgo (August 23 – September 23)
Get your home in order. This doesn’t necessarily mean your crash pad but also your personal affairs. If you accomplish that first, then you can focus on getting some romance in your life. At the same time, partners in your life will teach you a lot about yourself. That is if you are willing to listen to what they have to say. Try not to read between the lines or analyse what was said for hidden meanings, but listen to what they are saying in plain language. Don’t mix up issues from work with those at home. Keep those affairs separate, and life will go smoother.
Libra (September 23 – October 23)
Communication will be essential for you this month. So you better know what you are talking about in any discussion or argument. People will call BS on you if you don’t. There will be a lot of work, and your focus will be on getting things done, whether you like it or not. You should get enough rest or risk getting burned out or catching the flu. Partners can teach you valuable lessons, and so can your enemies. Both are equally as good at getting you to reach a higher potential. Structure your life as you want, and don’t be drawn into senseless conflicts.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 22)
If you don’t like where you are, then think of moving down the street. Okay, it doesn’t mean packing up and moving out of the house or neighbourhood. It could mean moving out of your mindset. We sometimes get stuck, and the havoc wreaked is because of the frustration coming from you. You are in control of your destiny but don’t act irrationally. Have a plan and focus on where you are going in life since you don’t get anywhere without a plan. Make sure your project has a little dream, a little fun, and a couple of well-executed risks to bring you to the next level.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Rose-coloured glasses can hinder your outlook. It makes you look at only the positive aspects of your situation. Life is a comprised of positives and negatives, and one must examine both sides of the coin before making a decision. One thing you should do is trust your gut since your intuition will be strong. The other thing going on this month is that you must be clear and expressive in discussions with all of your relations. Clarity and understanding is the most important thing. Don’t just blurt out your thoughts without thinking about them.
Capricorn (December 21 – January 20)
You will be getting messages from beyond. Okay, so you will not be a medium overnight but listen to what is being said in your dreams or just what you hear around you. While you know what you want, sometimes it isn’t easy to figure out how to get it. If this is the case, you must make a game plan to achieve your goal. Don’t be afraid to take action and get the job done. While you are at it, despite the holiday season approaching, don’t let your physical activity wane. A healthy body makes a healthy mind. It will give you the energy to make it through this time of year.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
You will be presented with some choices you have to make. Be careful if those are financial choices. You might flip-flop or make decisions based on emotional or sentimental criteria. You can get your judgment skewed by what you want your dreams to be. Focus more on reality than on dreams. What if you do get that red sports car? Do you need it? What we think will improve our lives might not work out in our best interests. What about the insurance? What if you crash it? Get a cool camper van, and you can tour the country and have more fun. Or both if you can afford it.
Pisces (February 18 – March 20)
You need to take a break from trying to save everyone else. Your standing and your place in society hinges on how you present yourself. Imagine if you go to buy a car and the salesperson says to you, “So, uh, maybe this car is good if you like it. Or not?” Would you buy the car from them? You feel empowered but be careful not to be overconfident in your abilities. Asking for help or guidance is not a sign of weakness. Draw on your inner strength to help you overcome difficult situations. Learning from the situation you find yourself in will prove beneficial in the new year.
