ARIES

General:
This is a new year and a new start. But first, there must be an ending. In some cases this applies to your career, whether an aspect of an existing job is poised to change or you will be seeking a new outlet for your skills, but in other cases an ending is set to take place on the home front - a member of the family moving away from home, perhaps, or the sale of a house. Either way, 2013 is about movement.

Finance:
This year brings the money zone into focus, stimulating your earning capacity and your resourcefulness, so you will have further opportunities to seek money-winning projects and generally get to grips with your financial affairs. While I am not encouraging you to turn a blind eye to a monetary problem I am suggesting that you delay making radical amendments to existing policies. What you can do is keep within your budget now and try to avoid any get-rich-quick schemes or impulse purchases.

Romance:
While there may be many celestial Rams getting married or engaged, this year the astrological emphasis is on the spirit of friendship as opposed to the joy of passion. In other words, the focus of your relationship should be on working as a team and treating your significant other like you would your best friend. Some of you may discover to your delight that you are very much loved and cherished by a certain someone.

TAURUS

General:
If you've got some long-cherished goals and ambitions - and which Taurus hasn't? - then 2013 is the year to dust them off and polish them up. Practicality combined with strategic thinking is the name of the game and any effort you put into overhauling your grand vision will pay handsome dividends further down the road. There could be much happening in the world out there too, which could in turn change your opinions, values and even a long-range plan or two.

Finance:
Finances and values take centre stage in 2013. This is a period in which to market your talents and to make the most of your resources, financial and otherwise. Use this period to have a fresh look at how you can increase your worth and to negotiate a better deal through alliances, be they banks or partners. Then let some sunlight and blue sky work its magic on your behalf.

Romance:
This could turn out to be a very romantic year; perfect for meeting someone new and making magic with someone special. Actions in the zone of companionship could on the one hand turn a platonic friendship into a more passionate union or at least become a fruitful enterprise. And generally speaking this is a period to invest in your friendships and to foster the spirit of friendship in your close personal and professional relationships.

GEMINI

General:
There may be a perfectly good reason why the start to this year is like no other - a proposal on the stroke of midnight perhaps, or some news from a friend or colleague, but in an ideal world you would make the decision to eliminate aspects of your life that are making you unhappy and getting you nowhere so that you can start afresh in 2013. Whatever you decide to do will lead to positive change in the future.

Finance:
In some ways, this is an excellent period to construct new financial agreements and to invest in property, and even if cash is in short supply there will be opportunities to turn a small investment into a large one. Have the confidence, courage and determination to tackle a financial problem and you will not regret it. What you discover and resolve will prove very worthwhile and in some cases will amount to a whole new start.

Romance:
The first couple of months of 2013 will focus on the zone of romance and creative endeavours, bringing you opportunities for fun and flirtation. The second half of February is an excellent time to meet new people and to make the most of social life, both in terms of pure enjoyment and with a view to making progress in your career. And whatever your individual situation, 2013 encounters should turn out to be happy and life-enhancing, if not truly divine.

CANCER

General:
This year is a time to attend to property matters, improving and expanding the home itself, and in some cases saying goodbye to an old residence and moving to a new one. There could be unexpected news related to a family member and you may have more than your share of issues with appliances and such organisations such as local councils, electricity and gas companies - time, perhaps, to end contracts and sign new ones.

Finance:
Financial and emotional security are vital to your sense of well-being and never more so than in 2013. Think long and hard about your investments (particularly in terms of real estate/property) and make sure that your generosity is not being abused. And if you are negotiating with an ex as you tie up your financial affairs, there could be some factors that have been concealed, though unintentionally.

Romance:
One of the serious astrological pluses to June 2013 is the presence of Venus in your sign - this planet adds beauty and harmony to life, and increases your abilities to give and receive love. Indeed, some Cancerians may have chosen June to marry or celebrate an anniversary, while others could find romance flowers suddenly in unexpected places. Venus reminds you that there is such a thing as a love life.

LEO

General:
As a fixed sign, change does not come easily to Leo, but if you want to make the most of your 2013 stars, you'll set about changing everything from your timetable to your tactics - you may even do a fair amount of travelling. Certainly, with planets in the area of communications, your life looks to be full of movement and, hopefully, one or two situations that have been stuck in a rut will begin to move forward.

Finance:
The first half of 2013 may well produce a monetary glitch in the zone of finances and shared resources, and should you be negotiating a settlement with an ex, for instance, or talking loans and borrowings with financial institutions, be gracious and avoid ultimatums. Indeed one or more money-related mysteries will be unravelling very satisfactorily towards the end of September.

Romance:
You are front of the queue this year when it comes to magic moments and extreme strangeness. Your levels of sensitivity and spirituality will be elevated, and you yearn to experience the divine in life and love, yet since we are all mortal our time in the land of the mystical is limited. Should you meet someone in 2013 with whom you fall passionately in love, the object of your desire may well turn out to be your clear-cut soul mate.

VIRGO

General:
Self-worth, of course, is not just a matter of material wealth but emotional and psychological well-being, so for many Virgos what needs to be put under the astro-microscope this year is your tendency to undervalue yourself. Raise your expectations of how you should be treated in working or romantic relationships and watch the ensuing developments. Yes, 2013 is all about realising how much you are cherished.

Finance:
Finances assume greater significance from late March and this is one of the premium periods of 2013 for creating new monetary agreements and reconstructing long-standing loans. Negotiation and research also help with finances - this is an ideal period in which to acquire a loan, deal with a debt and to seek a settlement of some description. Take it slow and keep your eye on the ball.

Romance:
While passion may be an important component of an intimate relationship in 2013, the spirit of friendship will help it ride over any bumps. The cosmos is allowing you to bring forth new life, whether in the literal sense or in the way of new ventures and associations. Indeed, The later months of the year should find you in a more serene and fulfilled state of being, and certainly richer and wiser for your experiences of earlier in the year.

LIBRA

General:
You may be forced to take more care of yourself in 2013, especially if you have been working too hard and not building enough leisure time into your life to restore your Libran equilibrium. This might be a good time to get back to the gym or dig out those running shoes, or maybe even just take the dog for a walk, but if you are worried about any niggling health issues, now is the time to get them checked out.

Finance:
If you've been waiting for a mortgage or bank loan to come through, August will bring you the news you've been waiting for. The planetary aspect is assisting you in all matters financial for the next year or so, which means that you are likely to prosper from this influence. Whatever you value most in life should be coming your way more easily. For some of you this will mean more money, for others of you, love, maybe even both.

Romance:
Venus's passage through your sign from mid-August to mid- September puts you in the mood for love and gives you your best chance in 2013 of finding it. You will be at your charming best during the second half of the year, attracting the opposite sex and drawing fortunate experiences towards you. You could feel much more positive about life and love; your image could experience a terrific uplift.

SCORPIO

General:
You will be taking a long, hard look at the reality of certain aspects of your life this year, and making decisions with far-reaching consequences. While I rarely recommend acting in the passion of the moment, sometimes it is the only way to make a courageous move, therefore the events of the first few months of 2013 could lead to a whole new order on the relationship or financial front. And it is a good thing.

Finance:
This year is one of those years when you can score a stunning financial success, or lose your shirt. All right that's an exaggeration but the potential for financial extremes is nonetheless great, especially during the first half of the year. You should put your finances under the microscope and set in motion practices and initiate transactions that will help strengthen your financial position. It could be a good time to buy or sell property.

Romance:
The cosmos is about to provide you with all the comfort and nourishment you need, with the intention of restoring harmony to the most private areas of your life. This year represents a time when you can recharge your spiritual and emotional batteries. You'll also find out how far you're prepared to go for the person you love, and how rewarding it is to give partners more freedom.

SAGITTARIUS

General:
If you're not already clutching an airline ticket, you could be making plans for a long-distance trip later in the year. Of course, the more significant message is that you should now be acquiring distance and perspective in psychological and emotional terms. Therefore, if some of 2012's events caused you a degree of pain and hassle, you can do some good work in 2013 in the sense of coming to terms with situations and moving on from them.

Finance:
Expansion and new opportunities are highlighted in 2013. If there is a downside here, you could just have a little too much fun and that can encourage you to be overly expansive or optimistic, so beware of flashing your credit cards too often and believing that you are invincible - there will be a price to pay. Being with groups rather than going solo will particularly benefit your monetary situation so make the most of these alignments.

Romance:
Venus, the planet of love, harmony and union, kicks off 2013 in your sign; for some a new romance is sparked in a foreign place or with someone from a different background, while for others time spent in a distant location rejuvenates a moth-eared relationship. Indeed, with dreamy Neptune's encouragement, the month of July could also prove spectacularly romantic.

CAPRICORN

General:
Your career and public reputation are in the frame this year and there is no sign for whom achievement and success are more important than you Capricorn. This year positive alignments are pointing to success or new opportunities coming your way. Changes on the family or property front could be in store - some Capricorns may be moving house and others completing a project in the home, which may well have begun early last year.

Finance:
Finances are top of the list for weird and wonderful developments in 2013. There will be some Capricorns who get a dream of a job now, or who receive an unexpected windfall, but in the main the celestial Goat is suffering from lack of funds and offers, and deals that invariably fail to materialise. The way around this trend is to keep your costs down for now and not to believe in offers and proposals until they are firmly on the table.

Romance:
It may be very difficult to establish what is going on in someone's heart and mind. This year could dispel some of those doubts, but you can help the romance to deepen and mature by not putting too much pressure on the other person and leaving the relationship to evolve unimpeded. This is a year to invest in your charms and talents - a new outfit or hairdo for some, a more serious makeover for others.

AQUARIUS

General:
Certainly, if you are debating whether or not your present occupation is sufficiently fulfilling or should you feel in need of take on a new challenge, 2013's astro-scape should give you more than a nudge in the right direction. This same trend could be apparent in your relationships - romantic and otherwise. You may find a new love or change the status quo in an established relationship, 2013 is a year to build and create solid structures.

Finance:
The planets are forging dynamic alignments in the money sector, so something seems set to awaken you to a new year and a whole new ball game. Some water bearers will be looking at the grim reality of their bank/credit card statements and planning a huge economy drive. Some needless things must fall by the wayside in preparation for the new to come. Endings and beginnings are notable in 2013 alignments.

Romance:
It is very important for Aquarians to feel that they are part of a group so making contact with an old friend, especially around February-March, will have a rejuvenating effect on you. Being an air sign, you thrive on communication, so if you've been delaying picking up the phone or writing that text message or email, now is the time to send something positive into the cosmos. Who knows where it might lead.

PISCES

General:
Friendships and teamwork are a major theme for 2013 and if you have been considering starting a business project with a colleague or friend, or wanting to spend time with friends as opposed to family, you have the stars right behind you. Also, Having your ruler Neptune intensified in your sign, you will have an opportunity to put a health wrong to right and to focus on getting the mind, body and spirit into perfect equilibrium.

Finance:
While I would encourage you to make sound financial moves in 2013 and to have confidence in your plans, you should avoid getting in too deep. Windfalls can be expected for some Pisceans, settlements for a few and for most, a desire to spend money and to invest in items of value and in people you love. August sees the most activity in your bank account and the greatest opportunities to invest in your future.

Romance:
Lovely Venus will be in your sign from February 25 until March 21, so technically you are in a phase when other people are impressed by your talents and deeply affected by your charms. If you're single and looking for love, get on your bike because this is one of the year's best times to meet new partners, and if you've set the date for a wedding, anniversary or reunion, you've got the one planet you need working her magic for you.
