ARIES: You may feel happier in your own company than usual, and can be overwhelmed by too many people, so give yourself space. Let yourself daydream since this will later be a source of great ideas you can put into action when the time is right. Mars will be around briefly which is not the most sensitive of energies, and the Moon needs nurturing and protecting so don’t let yoursef be railroaded into over hasty action. If you channel your energy in constructive directions, you could achieve a great deal.
TAURUS: You are in your element in group efforts at the moment, and are keen to see that everyone pulls in the same direction. You have a sharp, fast moving mind now with Mercury in the inventive area of your chart. Remember to write things down since you can be absent-minded, forgetting your brilliant inspirations as soon as you have them. Get your original, experimental ideas out into the world. You can make a difference by what you say, and perhaps motivate companions out of their ruts.
GEMINI: What you secretly (or not so secretly) yearn for is to be applauded by everyone around. This is your peak time of year where work or community activities are concerned so recognition is likely as you strive hard to get your talents out on display. You have a very clear mind which is capable of grasping ideas and put them to work at once at the moment. You should be organising well at the moment but need to develop more of a sense of humour.
CANCER: You will be thinking and talking about loftier topics than usual since your wide ranging mind is attracting you to fascinating new ideas. You will be promoting your pet causes with a great deal of evangelical zeal. Your wandering instincts are making it difficult for you to sit still, so you need more mental stimulation and challenges to hold your attention steady if you are stuck in one place. You will try to keep companions at arms’ length, since you are playing your cards close to your chest.
LEO: In coming weeks you’ll be feeling strong, secretive, determined more than usual. You will not readily divulge what you are thinking, feeling or planning to any but your nearest and most intimate partners. Jealousy and possessiveness could be a problem, but they are just a reflection of how deeply you feel. If anyone slights you at the moment you will not easily forgive and forget, but do not take it to extremes. Beware a tendency to be a little too sharp. You could hurt sensitive feelings.
VIRGO: Maybe you will feel slightly more vulnerable than usual, but there is support around if you look. Ask for what you need, but be prepared to compromise as well, since relationships always mean give and take. Find reliable, energetic mates on whom you can lean. You will want to smooth down rough edges, and make everything around as pleasant and comfortable as possible. You will notice a ray of sunshine around home and in your emotional relationships to keep you glowing.
LIBRA: Treat your body like a machine that needs the right treatment, good fuel and maintenance stops along the way. You need to be fit to crack on through the chores that are piling up in front of you. The Moon is at odds with restless Uranus, so you will be dancing off in all directions at once not sitting still for long. Sudden events at home will keep you on your toes and rather edgy. You will get jangled if anyone crowds you or tries to cramp your style.
SCORPIO: A real party animal at the moment, you will be playing spontaneously and not settling down to dull, routine chores or following orders easily. Feeling happy go lucky, outgoing and romantic, you want to allow your exuberance out on display as much as possible. The Moon is at odds with Pluto just briefly so you will tend to get pulled into tricky situations, and end up feeling a touch frustrated or blocked. You may get yourself in a stew about something that really could not matter less.
SAGITTARIUS: You yearn to feel rooted, as if you belong to a familiar place and to the people who make you feel most relaxed. You may also have chance to work out how best to improve your intimate surroundings. What you want is a beautiful home with an atmosphere of taste, elegance and comfort. You will be thoroughly and gloriously lazy but it might be an idea in the peaceful moments to mull over old memories. You can be more settled if you have thought things through more carefully.
CAPRICORN: More letters and phone calls than usual are keeping you on your toes, and a good many short distance trips will be keeping boredom well at bay. You may be skimming the surface and cutting corners, since there will be less time for detail than usual. You have a lot of energy for improving your surroundings or life situations. Just move cautiously; try tact not foot stamping for best results. You are very motivated to improve almost everything and everyone around you.
IF IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be vague at times but also opinionated and enthusiastic. You’ll want to raise your sights higher and expand your horizons. Close partners will be by your side, sharing fun activities and ideals. The odd bond in your life which has no potential for development will gradually fade away with no regret. Certain friendships will be going through an intense and challenging phase. Just handle them lightly and be patient.
PISCES: This is the time of year to lay down plans for the next year. You will need to work out what will suit you, get cracking with plans and once you have got yourself together, you can concentrate on close relationships. Try to look on the bright side of things. Pluto can make you see the difficulties rather than boosting your optimism. You will cope well with situations which are out of the ordinary but you may make normal situations more difficult than they need to be.
