|ARIES: You’re going to be fascinated by rather mystical things. You want to get away from the rational, logical and practical world, to float off, not quite on a little pink cloud, but heading that way. You know there are more things on heaven and earth than normal life lets in. You may be feeling dissatisfied with materialistic concerns now and want to withdraw slightly into your own inner world. There you are asking yourself deep questions about the meaning and purpose of your life.|
|TAURUS: You’ll be painting pictures in your mind, which is delightful. Try to draw your important messages, or even write a poem about them. Pictures and images will speak volumes. You’ll believe what you want to believe where friends or team mates are concerned, which may not be entirely wise. Being gullible to the promises of those who are unrealistic or unreliable will only create confusion in the long run. Decide for yourself just how much commitment you want to give in group efforts.|
|GEMINI: Neptune around mildly at the moment is a great healer, not in a dramatic way but being gently soothing. It disappears very quickly in the hurry and scurry of modern living. If you can connect to it then you find not just that you feel physically better but that you also have a deeper sense of meaning and purpose. If you push for self-centred aims and ambitions at work or in your community activities, then you will end up feeling disillusioned or disappointed.|
|CANCER: There could be an absolutely charming message coming your way, or a chance encounter that leaves you feeling rather ethereal. Remember it when you get back into the hassle and hustle. You will be asking yourself profound questions about the meaning of your life. This can feel a slightly odd time as you find your old value-systems dissolving and the new guidelines you want for yourself are still in the process of developing. Allow yourself to be uncertain and the answers will come.|
|LEO: There are days when making a determined push is the right approach. Then there are days when doing nothing at all seemingly ends you up in the right place at the right time, saying the right thing to the right people without making too much of an effort. You may be yearning for bliss, beauty and wonderful relationships or indeed a financial windfall to end all your problems. Try to understand that you need to be more realistic and practical to gain your goals.|
|VIRGO: If you attempt any tasks that require a huge amount of clear-thinking you won’t do them well. Then you’ll end up in a bit of a muddle and have to go back and redo them later on. So just push dreary chores to one side. If you go with the flow you will get where you want to go just as quickly. Companions may be evasive, vague or downright unreliable at the moment, though they’ll put on quite a performance to prove the opposite.|
It’s a good time to pen a love letter, even write a poem. Forget the accounts or the more unpleasant sides of reality. Anything that’s harsh, sharp-edged or too strenuous, just slide around. Let others do the rushing around. You may be feeling a little contrary in your desires though. If you aim at work for success, glory and boosting your ego, then it doesn’t work well. If you work in a spirit of service to others, it all turns out rather brilliantly.
|SCORPIO: You’re more sensitive to the subtler aspects of the world than usual. You’ll want to disappear into that rather sweet world inside yourself. If you have to be in contact with other people, you’ll be picking up their problems without even having to ask. Maybe you pitched your expectations too high about one family or emotional matter and the reality was never going to match your inner visions. Try to see clearly what you have got in your nearest and dearest and be satisfied.|
|SAGITTARIUS: Let yourself dream, listen to music or just be a little more imaginative. You will not even mind if someone tries to pull the wool over your eyes. You will be immensely forgiving. There may be some emotional confusion or misunderstandings at home now. You are beginning to look at one situation and feel rather let down, or just disillusioned as you realize the reality of what is being said or done. Try to find the courage to express how you feel.|
|CAPRICORN: Anything which feels too harassing won’t suit your quiet mood. You want things to be soothed and smoothed and wound down. Your intuition will be working well, so trust your instincts. Just don’t try to make cash decisions or add up the budget since your concentration will wander. Everyday relationships with friends will not be clear cut or straightforward. You mean to be kind but somehow crossed lines and lost messages mean you do not quite get that across in a sensible way.|
Avoid being directly confrontational, or leaping in with provocative comments. You’ll end up not knowing how to finish what you started. You have to pause anyway since you may be responding to something you did not quite understand. You do want to be generous about money and your possessions, which can be wonderful, but it can also mean you are out of touch with reality. You need to be able to hold practical values as well as looking for things that are beyond price.
|PISCES: IF ITS YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be vague, dreamy at times and ambitiously go-ahead at others. You’ll be working extra hard to achieve your goals, being conscientious and insisting that others dance to your tune. But you’ll need down time as well to allow yourself to drift. Luckily close partners will be supportive no matter what you’re doing. You’ll have key decisions to make now which will set you path ahead. Finances will improve after mid year.|
