If You Were Born Today, February : 2, 2015
IF IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY, according to your horoscope your year ahead will be lively, fast moving, outspoken at times and rather scattered. You’ll need to collect your wits and get organised. Spending and making money will be two obsessions so try to keep them in balance. Friends may be less available than usual but the ones you’ve trusted in the past will always be there for you. You’ll be serious about making sensible long term plans to give yourself peace of mind. Close relationships will flourish.
|ARIES: Don’t fail to grasp new opportunities rather than plodding along resolutely. Or think that things want to stay the same as they always have been. Now is the time to open up to expressing yourself as an individual. Don’t be one of the crowd or fit into the common mould now. You want to make a different impression on people, even if it means you are seen as slightly eccentric. If anyone tries to control you, they will be smartly told off.|
|TAURUS: You are entertaining people in new kind of way, because you’ve got all these rather exciting and different kinds of ideas. Sometimes you might be far too honest. You leap out into saying one or two things rather too forcefully and other people don’t always take it very kindly. Maybe you have been sitting on certain feelings for too long. Things are beginning to bubble to the surface. This process will ultimately free you of so much that has been holding you back.|
|GEMINI: Everything that is new, exciting and original in your life has to be followed up on the instant. Don’t stick your feet in a rut or be wary. The changes that are coming are not awkward or gritty. This is change that’s happening with excitement; there are all sorts of opportunities to do new things. Though team situations are not easy to hold everyone steady in the same direction. Try to be less fickle in your attitude and all should be well.|
|CANCER: You just want to be away from restrictions, away from restraints, away from things which are maybe pulling you back or pushing you into a corner. And you aren’t as rash as you sometimes are. At work at the moment you do have to watch a tendency to act erratically. Partly you want excitement, so if you get into a situation which feels too secure, you will rock the boat just to feel better. The trick is to find outlets for your high energy.|
|LEO: You want to be one of a gang, one of a crowd, but not crowded – you can’t bear people being possessive or pushing you into a corner, telling you what to do. You’re lively, you’re curious, very imaginative, very quick-witted, on the edge of your seat, on the edge of your toes, dashing around a very great deal. In spiritual matters you will be experimenting and challenging everyone else’s views. You won’t care what anyone else thinks or says, no matter how influential.|
|VIRGO: Sometimes when Uranus is around it can rock the boat a little bit, but you just want to follow your own original path, to be a little bit enlightened, to find new things, to talk to new people. You are wondering whether it is wise to make long term commitments at the moment either financial or emotional. Your hesitation is probably wise unless you have thought things through very clearly. Give it a week or two until the dust settles and you’ll be clearer.|
|LIBRA: Sometimes when Uranus is around it can rock the boat a little bit, but you just want to follow your own original path, to be a little bit enlightened, to find new things, to talk to new people. You are wondering whether it is wise to make long term commitments at the moment either financial or emotional. Your hesitation is probably wise unless you have thought things through very clearly. Give it a week or two until the dust settles and you’ll be clearer.|
|SCORPIO: Try not to leap into situations without stopping to think about it and burning your bridges behind you. This is not one of those times to be reckless. You may just feel a little bit jittery or uptight, but it’s a sense of good restlessness, that everything is beginning to shift for you. What you need at work is a good deal more freedom to work as suits your mood and your talents. You really no longer wish to fit into other people’s expectations.|
|SAGITTARIUS: You need to take a step back once in a while to see the broad picture. Check out whether you’ve misunderstood something. If there have been crossed lines recently, this is the day to disentangle them. Be cool, be clear but not too critical. Being detached allows you to make unbiased judgements, but you can also sound too chilly. You won’t let your feelings get in the way of your thinking since you want to be clear, but it does sometimes mean you sound cool or too detached.
|CAPRICORN: You may not be a list-making person, but it might be good idea, because you could end up forgetting things. Too many ideas are chasing round inside your head so you are at risk of getting in a muddle. You’ve got to have some kind of structure to what you’re saying, otherwise you will not communicate clearly. Your concentration is good at the moment once you settle down to tasks. More stubborn than usual, you are digging your heels in quite hard
|AQUARIUS: It will a be inspir-ing, enlightening, sparkling, challenging time but with lots of good fun thrown in. The main thing to remember is you need to be yourself. Throw away inhibitions. There is no point in compromising to fit in with other people. You can be extremely inventive in your thinking and speaking at the moment, really on the button, but you can also be absent minded. Write your bright ideas down the instant you have them, otherwise they will be forgotten.
|PISCES: At some level, you want more control in your life. You want to go off and do things you haven’t been able to do before, and it’s important to see this restlessness as a positive force for you. It opens your eyes to new vistas, allows you to see the variety and excitement life has to offer. You can be idealistic about money now, preferring not to be bogged down in petty materialistic concerns, or feeling that money should be used for humanitarian purposes.
