- What Hindus should be proud of
- Meet the Param Vir Chakra Awardee from Jammu
|ARIES: You’ll find at points today the words spill out all over the place and other people may get a bit avalanched, flooded by all your words and miss out on the sense. So once in a while you have to stand back and try to come to a few conclusions before you leap back out again. What you sometimes lack at the moment is optimism. When you get gloomy, remember you could be taking a rather narrow viewpoint. Saturn is around and making you doubting or suspicious.|
|TAURUS: Sort out your priorities and decide what really is of value. You might be tempted to think that money is all that matters, but there are other things which hold just as much interest for you and can lift your spirits when you are feeling low. Saturn, the practical planet of self-discipline and organisation, is in your chart area which rules joint finances, sexuality and other secret matters of great importance. The answers to problems may be slow in coming but perseverance will pay off.|
|GEMINI: In a restless mood, you’ll be ebbing and flowing like the tide, which is why you need really solid, motherly mates around to be protective, nurturing, and more practical than you feel. You will be unduly sensitive to the undercurrents in the emotional atmosphere which does make you more sympathetic but it can also make you jangled or just confused at times. You tend to be around older, more career oriented partners. Perhaps you are also finding added responsibilities landed on you in some way.|
|CANCER: You may feel a little bit discouraged or low in self-esteem, but there’s no need. Don’t assume that being left to your own devices is a bad thing, or a sign you are unlovable. Treat it as a blessing in disguise, to give yourself — emotionally, at any rate — space. You pride yourself on being never pushy but always there. But you tend to be negative at times in your approach, rarely praising but finding flaws to criticise in yourself and others. Stop nit picking and enjoy more.|
|LEO: It’s important to get the right kind of emotional contact with friends and other people, partly for affectionate support, partly because you want to bounce ideas off them for the future. This is your time to set the agenda for the next 28 days and whoever is around can help you sort out your options. You will need to work harder at the moment to release your creative talents with Saturn around putting as damper on self expression. Watch a tendency to turn everything into a chore.|
|VIRGO: If you want more prominence, you’re going to have to do things that draw other people’s attention to you. So do what suits the influential people at work or out in your community. Cater for their needs, not your own, and then you will get all the compliments you want. You are laying down strict rules and regulations for yourself, and for those who share your home. Just don’t get too rigid about everything. Life needs a little relaxation and even sloppiness around to make it feel comfortable.|
|LIBRA: In a restless mood, you want to be anywhere other than where you are. But if you are stuck in the one place, go talk to more adventurous people, even find some stretching book to read. You really can’t be bothered with practical routines. Your self esteem is not high as usual when it comes to speaking or writing. You imagine you are less bright or less good with words than you would like and get discouraged when others do not listen to your opinions.|
|SCORPIO: Briefly you lose all thought of being superficial or frivolous. There will be certain points in the day when you want to get down into the depths to investigate, to stand steady until you find the long-term kind of answers. It may be to do with financial or emotional matters, or just more fundamental questions you are asking of yourself. Maybe you do need to loosen up a bit and understand that your insecurity about being short of money is an over rigid attitude.|
|SAGITTARIUS: In your closest relationships, both at work and at home, you may be clutching a little more than usual, hanging on to partners. Don’t get jealous and possessive if they aren’t exactly fitting in with what you want. Just move over and get in step with them. You are tough with a great deal of endurance, stamina and dogged persistence. Sticking out difficult situations is your great strength now, though you may find it more difficult to be flexible or soften your approach.|
|CAPRICORN: You have to go out of your way to make sure that everyone is well looked after. If you feel emotionally squashed because of that, give yourself a few tiny treats through the day. With Saturn in the sign before yours, you seem to have a serious understanding of the suffering of others, and can really work hard to relieve it in a practical way. However, that also tends to make you live too much in the past, worrying over old slights and hurts.|
IF IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be ambitious and hard-working. You may be vague about your personal finances and tending to be careless, but you’ll find joint finances flourish, with money coming in unexpectedly. Friends may be fewer than usual but the ones around will be loyal and rock solid in their support. A busy everyday schedule will find you scattering in all directions so get your priorities straight and write out to-do lists.
PISCES: Even if you are on your own for a little while, it won’t bother you very much because the Moon’s position today is a hint to cool down, calm down and get away from hassle, hustle and aggravation. You don’t want to be overwhelmed by the things of the outside world. In general, you are more hard working, reliable and conscientious, a touch over serious about your responsibilities. Saturn never moves fast, but it does help you towards a slow, but steady rise to success.
