GeminiVenus, Goddess of Love does you a favour:Your big mouth might actually come in handy this week – you’ll need it to talk yourself out of trouble. You might even talk yourself into a lucrative situation, just try not to do everyone’s head in with your incessant gabbling.

CancerThe sun highlights your best assets:You’re going to get a fair few admiring glances this week, so enjoy it. Don’t let the killjoy at home (flatmate? Mother? Gulp…boyfriend?) spoil your fun…
