Horoscopes for Gentlewomen of Marriagable Age and Position


Aries (Mar. 21- April 19): Ruled by Mars, Aries women are quite talented in getting what they want.  This spring you will have an  opportunity to exercise this talent when a tall, dark stranger approaches you at a masquerade.  Beware of wolves in sheep's clothing -- and of your own "masked" behavior.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20): Try not to let your headstrong temper get the better of you  mid-month when your yearly trip to Bath is postponed until autumn.  Bath is not the only place to meet a husband -- Mr. Right may be closer to home than you think. Hmm...
Gemini (May 21 - June 20): Since Twins are as infamous as Italians for their passionate nature, you must be especially watchful of your behavior mid-month. Remember, nowadays his promises of marriage are no longer legally binding, so preserve your innocence at all costs. (Unless you want to ruin all future prospects of marital success and personal happiness.)
Cancer (June 21-July 23): You think that you are passionately in love with a man of inferior rank ( a merchant or sailor, perhaps).  But like all Cancers, you feel more responsible for others' happiness than your own, and recognize that such a match would cause your family much pain and embarrassment.  Can you be truly happy if they disapprove of the match?

Leo (July 24 - Aug. 22): One of the more stubborn signs, you find it difficult to subdue your warm opinions in conversation.  While your quick wit and depth of understanding are a great credit to our fair sex, it is important to refrain from expressing your strong views in the company of a certain young lord at the end of the month.

Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22): Your proper and reserved manners are much applauded as a model of feminine conduct. But you may need to resort to batting an eyelash or two to make your true feelings known to that gentleman of the neighborhood who has until recently considered you only as "the girl next door."


Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22): You have a history of indecisiveness typical of your sign. But tensions will climax mid-month if you continue waver between placing your affections on the plain but amiable young vicar or the handsome but arrogant baronet. A question to consider -- Which will be the better father?

Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21): Intense and secretive, you avoid sharing your feelings with others. But if you share with your closest female companion (or perhaps your brother) your tender feelings about that certain baronet, she or he mat be able to bring the two of you together to from a more intimate attachment. But beware of the power of your intense passion if this attachment does indeed grow intimate.


Sagittarius (Nov. 22 -  Dec. 21): You tend to become bored easily, but you must learn to disguise this feeling when conversing with young gentlemen. While you may not wish to attract the attention of certain dull gentlemen, you do not wish to gain a reputation for being ungracious and amiable, and therefore ruin your prospects elsewhere.

Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19): You have always been ambitious, ever since you persuaded your governess to teach you both French and Italian at age ten. But now your ambition has shifted to marrying well. (A difficult task indeed, in this day and age!) Your hard work and persistence pay off during a spring visit to London, where you attract the attention of a gentleman suitable in both rank and fortune.


Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18): Like most Aquarians, you enjoy spending time alone, engaging in in quiet pursuits such as sewing and letter-writing.  A young gentleman friend of your brother's who visits your estate this spring may encourage you to change your solitary habits, perhaps for a lifetime ...  .

Pisces (Feb. 19 - Mar. 20): You tend to place little importance on economic matters, and you listen to your heart when you must make decisions. An opportunity arrives early in the month to meet a Scorpio who captures your heart -- and who has managed to capture a hefty inheritance. Could wealth and love both be your lucky fate?
