ARIES There is plenty of shopping to do. Don’t be shy to haggle over prices. You find some advantageous conditions for reim- bursing a loan. TAURUS There is lots of action on the horizon. You put into practice most of the ideas that are inspiring you at the moment. Dreams can accomplish great things. GEMINI Some health worries or accumulated tired- ness could really slow you down. One of your loved ones could also be in need of you. Take a bit of time for yourself as well. CANCER Even though you are a solitary being at times, you still like to be surrounded by your loved ones. You make efforts to widen your circle of friends for the same reason. LEO You have to shoulder numerous responsi- bilities at work and within the family. If you have young children, you get involved with school activities. VIRGO It’s high time that you plan your next vacation. It wouldn’t be surprising if you have lots of details to take care of, espe- cially if you’re travelling with a group. LIBRA There’s a lot of emotion in the air! This might be due to some fairly drastic changes, such as moving house. You will have to rebuild certain elements in order to have a solid base for support. SCORPIO Your love life takes up a lot of your atten- tion this week. You spend some quality time with your loved one, and you both enjoy planning a beautiful future together. SAGITTARIUS You’re a real foodie, and you might clue in that you’ve been getting a bit chubbier. As you become aware of this, you will start a strict but effective diet. CAPRICORN You distinguish yourself in a significant way within a group or the business where you work. You are really proud of this rather daring exploit. AQUARIUS You may decide to sell or buy a property on the spur of the moment. You’ll find a place that is perfect for the whole family. PISCES You don’t always express yourself deci- sively, but everything you say is thought- ful and will make a big difference for several people.

DIRECTIONS : Cook the couscous according to the package direc- tions using chicken stock instead of water. Leave to cool. Preheat the barbecue on high for 5 minutes then reduce to minimum or preheat the oven to 220 ºC (450 ºF). Season the chicken and cook the strips for 10 to 15 minutes on the grill, or on a baking sheet, greased or covered with parchment paper. If you are using the conventional oven method, turn the chicken strips halfway through cook- ing (the time can vary depending on the oven used). In an appropriate bowl, mix all the ingredients of the dressing. Add the cooked chicken, the couscous and all the vegetables. Mix and serve imme- diately.
