tangerine. Lucky numbers are 8 and 46.
Sat Jun 2: Don't Go Overboard
You have a tendency to go overboard today Cancer, whether it's eating too much food, drinking too much or taking on more than you can handle at work. You simply won't know when to stop! You're in a very sociable mood and you're also feeling very easy-going, prepared to take people at face value and to turn a blind eye to their faults and foibles. And you hope they'll do the same for you.
Positive colors are claret and kiwifruit. Lucky numbers are 4 and 67.
Sun Jun 3: Sunshine
You're feeling positive and full of sunshine today, and determined to make the best of any situation you find yourself in. The planets are in are fortunate aspect, so everything is looking bright. A fortunate encounter with someone who'll do you a good turn, or brighten up your life in some way, is definitely on the cards. Empowering colors are emerald green and sapphire blue. Lucky numbers

Mon Jun 4: Full Moon Lunar Eclipse
If you want to make changes to your working environment or career prospects, do your best to get on with your colleagues today. It's a powerful Lunar Eclipse, so the Moon-ruled could encounter opposition as the knives come out. Perhaps someone objects to the way you're doing things, or maybe they're just plain jealous. Ensure that you're acting in everyone's best interests and not just your
own, or you'll really land in hot water! Ideal colors are deep purple and aqua. Lucky numbers are 9 and 7.
Tue Jun 5: Play Your Cards
Play your cards close to your chest, Cancer. This means that you could give the impression of being secretive or unfriendly, which won't go down well in some quarters. Maybe it would help to explain your current mood? At times, you may have to force yourself to speak up to avoid sending out the wrong signals. Soothing colors are copper and teal. Lucky numbers are 2 and 56.
Wed Jun 6: Speak From The Heart
Make an effort to talk about your feelings today. It may not be very easy at first, but you'll soon get into the swing of it, and the results will speak for themselves. Have an intimate conversation with your partner, in which you both speak from the heart about something that concerns the two of you. It will do wonders for your relationship. Ideal colors are pistachio and cherry blossom.
Lucky numbers are 22 and 8.
Thu Jun 7: Reveal Yourself
It pays to reveal your true feelings to someone. You don't want to talk to any old person of course, so choose your confidante carefully. Others may present some sort of written review of your personality or performance, or speak to you about aspects of your appearance and personality. It's an excellent opportunity to discuss subjects that are usually off-limits, perhaps because they're
sensitive or they're embarrassing when not handled properly. Right now, no problem. Harmonious colors are deep blue and lavender. Lucky numbers are 26 and 5.
Fri Jun 8: Hide In Your Shell
If you want to get the very best out of the day, hide away from the world with a very special person. Lose yourself in a romantic reverie. If you're involved in a secret relationship, what happens now makes you feel mushy inside. If you're getting together with this person today, the encounter should be tender and loving. Just don't let ego interfere. Favorable colors are salmon and lavender.
Lucky numbers are 3 and 12.
Sat Jun 9: Bewildered, Bothered and Bewitched
It's a baffling day today, because you feel as though you're being bombarded by information from all sides. Well-meaning people may be full of advice that you don't want, or everyone might start talking at once so you don't know who to listen to first. You'll also be aware of a perverse voice inside you that's telling you to do the opposite of whatever seems most sensible. Not an easy day.
Ideal colors are blueberry and raspberry. Lucky numbers are 24 and 9.
Sun Jun 10: Good Ideas
Someone is full of good ideas today. Well, they think so, anyway, and will regale you with their thoughts for ages. You might enjoy listening, although some of what they say will seem like a complete flight of fancy. Be wary if they try to persuade you to join them in what you think is a hare-brained scheme because it could turn out to be over- ambitious and a complete waste of time. Maybe
you should persuade them to scale it down a little? Ideal colors are lime and mulberry. Lucky numbers are 15 and 6.
Wed Jul 11: In The Mood
This is a wonderful day for concentrating on friendships because that's exactly what you're in the mood for. You might want to ring up a chum and find out how they are, send someone an email or arrange an impromptu get-together with some of your mates. You'll have great fun if you're taking part in a group activity, and you'll come out of it smelling of roses. Creative colors are brass and
indigo. Lucky numbers are 16 and 8.
Thu Jul 12: What You Know
This isn't a good day to start anything new, unless you don't mind when it all goes haywire. Instead, you should concentrate on projects that are already underway, especially if they concern your social life or a favourite hobby. For instance, if you arrange to see a friend today the meeting might not be a success or you may have to change your plans at the last minute. Liberating colors are
strawberry and ultramarine. Lucky numbers are 4 and 32.
Fri Jul 13: Money Out The Window
If you know what's good for you you'll avoid all financial matters today, because they show every sign of going wrong. That might be because you make silly mistakes or because someone is doing their best to trick you. Besides, you're in a very absent-minded mood and will struggle to concentrate on anything for long. Check out Friday 13! Creative colors are sapphire
blue and emerald green. Lucky numbers are 26 and 8.
Sat Jul 14: Priorities
This is a good day for thinking about your priorities in life, and discussing them with someone who's interested in what you have to say. You could end up having a very satisfying discussion that helps you to make sense of your current ideas. If you applied for a grant or allowance recently, there should be some news about it now. Advantageous colors are peach and khaki. Lucky numbers are 9
Sun Jul 15: Mercury Retrograde
You may need to tighten your belt as Mercury turns retrograde in your second house of finances; funds may be held up and delayed until after Mercury turns direct again on August 8th. Have patience as business matters move slowly... look at this as a time to reconsider your values and priorities. In fact, this could be a blessing in disguise. Positive colors are sage green and desert sand.
Lucky numbers are 1 and 2.
Mon Jul 16: Bide Your Time
If you already suspect that someone is trying to pull the wool over your eyes in a financial matter, proceed with caution today, because things could get even more confusing. This isn't the day to confront anyone because they will do their best to deflect your accusations by being snide or unpleasant. Instead, continue to gather your evidence and bide your time. Powerful colors are salmon
pink and burgundy. Lucky numbers are 3 and 14.
Tue Jul 17: My Way Or The Highway
You're in rather a headstrong mood today, especially when it comes to your finances. You want everything to go your way and will get really annoyed if they don't. You'll also be impatient if you think you're getting sloppy service, perhaps because you have to wait ages in the queue at the bank, or because a shop assistant doesn't seem to know what they're doing. Positive colors are scarlet
and agate. Lucky numbers are 26 and 12.
Wed Jul 18: Personal Priorities
With the Moon in your sign, personal concerns have the greatest importance for you today. You'll try to steer the conversation round to yourself, whether you've got something important to say or you simply want to tell someone what you had for breakfast. That's fine if they're willing to listen, but don't drone on if they have things to tell you. Auspicious colors are moonlight white and
golden topaz. Lucky numbers are 15 and 23.
Thu Jul 19: New Moon
It's a New Moon in your sign, dear Crabs, and as you are ruled by the Moon, that means it's extra-special! The winds of change are sweeping through your life and the coming fortnight brings an excellent time to let them take effect. Be ready for a fantastic opportunity to take the initiative in some way, or to start something new. If you're bored with your appearance or image, think about how
you can improve it. You'll be thrilled every time you look in the mirror! Fortunate colors are pastel blue and rose red. Lucky numbers are 1 and 12.
Fri Jul 20: Don't Be Surprised
It looks as though someone is planning a treat for you. If you're really lucky, it might turn out to be a surprise birthday party, in which case you'll have to pretend that you didn't know anything about it. Enjoyment is certainly on the cards, and you'll adore getting together with friends and close relatives. You should also receive a compliment that has you blushing like a beetroot.
Fortunate colors are bright red and charcoal grey. Lucky numbers are 1 and 2.
Sat Jul 21: Steady Progress
Someone close to you is talking a lot of sense, so it pays to listen. However, don't expect them to get carried away with enthusiasm because that isn't their style at the moment. You'll make steady progress if you're sorting out a neighborhood problem, provided you aren't too ambitious and don't ignore what's right in front of your eyes. Auspicious colors are silver and cherry blossom. Lucky
numbers are 6 and 39.
Sun Jul 22: Priorities
Over the next four weeks your values will be even more important to you than usual. Experiences will remind you about some of your priorities in life, especially if you've had to neglect them recently. These values will encompass everything from what you spend your money on to your beliefs and the code by which you live your life. Favorable colors are tangerine and lilac. Lucky numbers are 9
Mon Jul 23: Flood of Communication
The day fires up with a flood of communication, so get your head into gear. The Virgo Moon makes you a stickler for detail and urges you to get your gadgets and gear into top order. Bear in mind that with Merc retro in your money house big spending could backfire, so stick to research and buy next month. Tonight you'll really come into your own if you let your imagination run riot because it
will produce some inspired thoughts. Prosperous colors are navy and tan. Lucky numbers are 2 and 19.
Tue Jul 24: Good News
If you're busy on some domestic improvements or planning a house move, things should go well today. Even if someone lets you down or things take longer than expected, it should work out well in the end. Some good financial news might come from an unlikely source, but you're ready for it! Beneficial colors are pale grey and sunset pink. Lucky numbers are 19 and 31.
Wed Jul 25: Uncomfortable Scenes
During the past couple of months you've had some uncomfortable scenes with a certain person about matters connected with health or work. Well, these problems raise their ugly heads again now, but this time you're offered the chance to lay them to rest once and for all. Nevertheless, you should be careful how you do this, because appearing to be dogmatic, intransigent or even a total bully
will only make the situation worse than it already is. Healing colors are pure white and amethyst. Lucky numbers are 28 and 50.
Thu Jul 26: Moral Support
You have a strong sense of responsibility today, especially when thinking about loved ones. You want to make sure that they're OK, and will do what you can to protect and help them. However, you must realize that you can't interfere if someone doesn't want you to, and all you can do is to offer moral support, letting them know that you'll be there if they need you. Positive colors are ochre
and sunflower yellow. Lucky numbers are 6 and 13.
Fri Jul 27: Highly Charged
Tread carefully if you're at work today because the atmosphere between you and colleagues or clients could be very highly charged. Maybe someone is taking things too seriously or they're getting bogged down in petty details that you think are a complete waste of time. Even though you may long to give them a piece of your mind it might be wiser to button your lip. Lucky colors are pale gold
and plum. Lucky numbers are 24 and 7.
Sat Jul 28: Surprise Feelings
You could be in for a surprise today, when you discover that a certain person means much more to you than you imagined. You may have to keep your feelings to yourself at this stage, perhaps because it wouldn't be appropriate to declare them or because you can't quite believe what's happening to you. Will this blow over or is it the start of something big? Bold colors are jet black and bright
gold. Lucky numbers are 1 and 10.
Sun Jul 29: Spontaneous Cancer
This is a fantastic day for being spontaneous, especially if you're still feeling slightly rattled by what happened yesterday. So if someone suggests doing something on the spur of the moment, you'll be very tempted to say 'yes'. You might also be thrilled when you bump into the last person you were expecting to see. Revealing colors are khaki and dark red. Lucky numbers are 4 and 43.
Mon Jul 30: Cheer Up!
If a relationship has been going through the doldrums lately, things seem worse than usual today. It is one of those days when you can't help taking a pessimistic view of whatever is bugging you, whether or not such a gloomy outlook is justified. If you're worried about driving a loved one away, they certainly won't want to be around you when you're pulling such a long face or being such a
misery. Cheer up! Harmonious colors are russet and brass. Lucky numbers are 40 and 75.
Tue Jul 31: Pay Attention
Pay attention to your finances, especially if you've been pushing monetary matters to the back of your mind. Make sure that all your financial arrangements are running as smoothly as possible, and do something about it if they aren't. For instance, if you're fed up with the so-called service offered by your bank, you may decide that it's time to take your custom elsewhere. Powerful colors are
peacock blue and ebony. Lucky numbers are 24 and 4.
