If You Were Born Today, February :5, 2015
IF IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY, according to your horoscope your year ahead will be serious about long term plans and a time when you’ll prize loyalty above all else in friends. You’ll be confident socially and enjoying more shared activities with one partner. A busy schedule won’t let up so you’ll need to streamline your efficiency and communicate as clearly as you can. Money will come in through your determined efforts but probably out again just as quickly. Try to save when you can.
|ARIES: Where you have specialised or really significant tasks to do, you will find you crack along. Though you won’t necessarily find it very easy to communicate with other people. Saturn around can sometimes create barriers or maybe you’re just putting yourself across too cautiously. Serious about educating yourself in a general sense at the moment, you are taking pride in your sharp mind, and getting resentful if you are not given the recognition that you feel your ideas or your work deserves.|
|TAURUS: You may be looking too much for what’s wrong around you, seeing the flaws and the inadequacies rather than the benefits. It may not be very easy either to open up to other people because you fear they may be critical rather than supportive, but try all the same. Don’t let your love life suffer because you are wary of getting into the depths of your feelings. But you are beginning to understand what is holding you back from real relating.|
|GEMINI: Don’t think on the broad sweep. This is very much a time to focus in on the small things. Try to see things exactly as they are, which is never as much fun as looking on the bright side, but might prove more useful. If you are more on your own than usual it’s only a very temporary, passing phase. Now could be a time of recognition and solid promotion. Emotional tensions slip out into the open, which won’t be a bad thing.|
|CANCER: Don’t run your talents down but try to be fair minded both about your own achievements and those of other people. Remember that you’ve got a sense of humour as well as a sense of what’s wrong with life. It is important to break through one communication barrier now but that requires you get companions to listen respectfully to what you have to say. You need to prepare the ground in advance by softening them up. You are really becoming good at specialist work.|
|LEO: Trivial amusements may not be uppermost on your mind which is just as well since they won’t work well just briefly. Whereas if you try to be serious, you’ll make by far the best of the Saturn in-fluences around. You may be finding it difficult to really let rip. You are tending to be cautious and restrained in leisure activities. You seem to be trying too hard to keep your emotions in control. Accept that you can be loved and valued for being yourself.|
|VIRGO: If you are holding back from a serious discussion with workmates or close companions then maybe you need to think of some way of breaking the ice. There may have been more criticism around than usual recently but you could also be misconstruing something you have only half heard. Check it out before jumping to conclusions. Duty at the moment is coming before pleasure and indulgence. Home life may feel a bit hard, but you do want a more organised set up.|
|LIBRA: If you continually point out to companions everything that’s wrong, you’ll end up standing by yourself. Try adding a few compliments first if you have to be honest or critical. You may feel there is a barrier to be overcome when talking to workmates, neighbours, or brothers and sisters. Your honesty and reliability are obvious, though at times you may be sounding doubting, rather critical, or suspicious. But don’t let other people’s narrow mindedness put you off. You know what is true for you.|
|SCORPIO: It’s important that you fix your eye on the things that need looking at. If you do you’ll find that you can pick up the tiny little details that need to be sorted out. This is not the time to be keeping your head in the clouds or ambling along relying on luck to see you through. Others may call you miserly, but you know, like animals in autumn, that hoarding makes survival sense. So you’ll be limiting your purchases to what is essential.|
|SAGITTARIUS: If you can push frivolities to one side just temporarily and do the practical, solid, sensible, get-it-all-together kind of tasks, then you could get a lot of stuff cleared out of the way once and for all. Then you will deserve a break and can disappear off to play truant. Life will reward you the harder you try though you must find time for relaxation as well as serious endeavours. Otherwise you could end up having to make your way in the world unaided.
|CAPRICORN: Don’t judge yourself by other people’s standards. Just because not everyone fits in with your point of views, doesn’t mean you are necessarily wrong. Give yourself a pat on the back for what you have accomplished recently. You may hold back now from really examining what is going on inside you or indeed exploring your past, since you are wary of finding out what lies below the surface. The strange thing is though that you would gain inner strength if you did.
|AQUARIUS: If there are slight delays around, don’t get discouraged. Just sound bright and breezy, leave it for a while and hey presto it will all work itself out. Attitude of mind may be more important than anything else. Maybe you find certain group activities tricky to handle at the moment. There’s a reserve or a barrier, which you find it difficult to break down on first meeting, though once you have been around a while people do recognise your good qualities, and your loyalty.
|PISCES: Other people may be demanding quite a lot of you, so watch you don’t end up feeling resentful. Having to fit in all the time with other people’s plans, whims, suggestions and orders can be a bit of a bore. Do what makes you feel virtuous, but don’t let other people push you too much. You genuinely want to be of service and make everyone’s life easier. Having the energy and the right support around you will mean that you can make faster progress.
