|ARIES: You really want love to be like the movies, all bliss and no rough edges. Wouldn’t we all? Just don’t allow your dreams to make you too dissatisfied with the reality of what you have. An overly strong need for perfection can make you hesitate to commit yourself, when really what is on offer is solid and substantial. You may be feeling just a touch isolated or under-appreciated at the moment. But there really is no need. Just enjoy this quiet time.|
|TAURUS: Don’t hide away your oddball streak, since you’ll be all the more loved because of your originality. Your friendship circle is wider than usual at the moment, with enough exciting and different personalities around to suit your every mood. You have a wonderful knack of putting others at their ease, so you’re more than welcome wherever you go. But you’ll be demanding elbow room. You won’t put up with jealousy in any form and will run a mile at the first whiff off possessiveness.|
|GEMINI: Just check out your self-esteem. Somehow you feel you have to earn being accepted at the moment. Only by being successful will you be valued, you think. Understand you are loveable for just being you. If other people can’t see that then they aren’t worth having around. You very much want to be looked up to and admired now, so you’re putting a great deal of stress on how you look, sprucing up your outer appearance. Maybe even putting on airs and graces.|
|CANCER: Even if you can’t travel instantly to exotic places with loved ones, you can always dream and plan. Your heart is definitely yearning for the far blue horizons. Add a touch of the colourful to your social activities, since you want to add a bit of space to your off duty hours. You want your social life to be an adventurous experience at the moment and you’ll be happy for loved ones to expand your view of life and teach you a great deal.|
|LEO: Your passions are running hot and strong at the moment. Maybe you are keeping them well hidden, but you are definitely looking for an adventurous emotional life. Whatever or whoever you have in mind, you will plot and plan to make your dreams come true. You love people or you loathe them at the moment; there is not much in between where your feelings are concerned. You want to live life at a profound level and don’t care for anything too frivolous or superficial.|
|VIRGO: Socially you are on top form at the moment, charming the birds off the trees and feeling extremely popular. You will say what you think will please, not necessarily always what you think or feel, which could make you seem a touch insincere, though you are well intentioned. With Mercury in your opposite sign at the moment you are the diplomat par excellence. Your harmonious way of expressing yourself and desire to keep the peace should be doing wonders for your popularity.|
You may be indulging slightly more than usual in rich and sweet food, and less inclined to take exercise since you are feeling a little lazy. But at least you should be feeling physically less over stretched, as long as you do not let your appetite run rampant. You are tending to throw your emotional needs into work at the moment, and can be a little stand-offish on social occasions. Others find you reserved but don’t always realise quite how pre-occupied you really are.
|SCORPIO: You may have a twitch of jealousy if loved ones look the other way. Your feelings are running more strongly at the moment which can be heart warming though it can also make you demanding. Still if you don’t ask, you may not get. Your naturally sunny temperament at the moment is making you popular and helping you to avoid the boring routines at work and elsewhere. You are putting on a great performance, entertaining everyone in sight. You’ll have an appreciative audience.|
|SAGITTARIUS: Home is where your heart is and you will adore nothing more than being on your own territory, surrounded by the family and close friends. Entertaining in your familiar surroundings suits you better than being out and about at social events. More sensitive and emotional than usual, you want happy family relations and a peaceful domestic existence. You will have an intuitive feel for whatever is happening, but you may over react, and feel hurt by even the slightest whiff of criticism.|
|CAPRICORN: Sharing your deeper emotions is not likely to be easy at the moment. There is safety and security in numbers for you it seems, so you will be aiming for a wide social circle, rather than exclusive twosomes. You want to have an escape route handy, especially when boredom sets in. Nothing is making you happier at the moment than peaceful conversations with friends, neighbours, brothers and sisters or workmates. The everyday people in your life are the most appreciative and supportive.|
You are wallowing slightly in your senses now, adoring good food and drink and sensuous clothes. Anything you can do to make yourself feel beautiful will keep you in good spirits. You do want more beautiful things around you at the moment even than usual. Maybe you are trying to compensate just a touch for a lack you feel elsewhere. But don’t muddle love and money and assume if you are not being given lavish presents that you are not really valued.
|PISCES: IF ITS YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be charming, sociable, chatty and restless. You’ll be taking your responsibilities seriously and sticking to the straight and narrow but you’ll also find time for fun as well. One friendship will be going through a challenging phase. Over reacting to provocations won’t help so just stay calm. Close partners will be enthusiastically behind your plans though you’ll want to make your own decisions for a few months. Money will improve.|
