24 Oct-22 Nov

You’ve been overdoing it and need time to recover from your exertions – mental as well as physical. Your head is so full of competing ideas that you are finding it hard to think straight. The only answer is not to think of anything for a while.

23 Nov-21 Dec

If certain people refuse to give a straight answer to a straight question it doesn’t mean they’re trying to deceive you. They’re probably afraid you’ll find out something embarrassing. Let them know that any secrets you uncover won’t be used against them.

22 Dec-20 Jan

A money-making idea may no longer seem so hot but don’t abandon it. It might be better to wait a few weeks to see if you can recoup any of your losses. Crucially, do not waste any more of your resources. Don’t throw good money after bad.

21 Jan-19 Feb

With intelligent Mercury now retrograde in your sign you may be confused about the direction you should be taking. The best advice an astrologer can offer is to take no direction at all. All will become clear, including your mind, when the time is right.

20 Feb-20 March

You may not be in the mood to fight for your rights but you know if you don’t you’ll send the wrong kind of message to your rivals. Act tough and give the impression you are not the sort to be intimidated. No one has the right to take what belongs to you.

21 March-20 April

With articulate Mercury now retrograde you may find it hard to understand what others are trying to tell you – it will be as if you’re speaking entirely different languages. Don’t worry. The planets indicate what they’re saying is not worth listening to.

Sally Brompton horoscopes: 20th-26th JanuaryTAURUS

21 April-21 May

You’re not responsible for the world and its troubles so don’t feel guilty if some people aren’t doing as well as you. Of course, help friends and family get over their problems but don’t get so caught up in their affairs that you neglect your own needs.

22 May-21 June

You can at times be quite plainspoken so it’s not surprising if some people get offended when you point out their faults and failings. This week, however, it will be your mistakes that come up for discussion. You can hardly complain that it isn’t fair.

22 June-23 July

With Mercury now retrograde you’re likely to be feeling a bit confused. So this is not a good time to make long-term plans or get involved in projects you have no way of knowing will work out well. Whatever others say, you don’t have to make a decision now.

Sally Brompton horoscopes: 20th-26th JanuaryLEO

24 July-23 Aug

You’ll have no choice this week but to deal with a situation not of your making and that will bring you no benefits. Others may turn their backs but not you. Just make sure that those you are helping know that after this they’re on their own. And mean it.

Sally Brompton horoscopes: 20th-26th JanuaryVIRGO

24 Aug-23 Sept

You may be bored with what you’re doing and it may get more boring still but the planets warn this is not the right time to give up on it. Focus on something different for a while but be ready to come back to your current project when your enthusiasm returns.

Sally Brompton horoscopes: 3rd-9th FebruaryLIBRA

24 Sept-23 Oct

Focus on what you’re good at and forget all else. Retrograde Mercury in the most creative angle of your chart means you must recognise that the more you spread your energy around the less you will get back from it. Specialisation is the key to success.
