|ARIES: Restless and versatile, you seem to know a little about a good many subjects at the moment. Maybe you are scattering your attention in too many directions at once, or across too wide a field. Maybe you don’t want to put yourself out and about as much at the moment socially or romantically. But watch that it isn’t a slight fear of rejection that is making you disappear into your shell. Just cuddle up close to those who make you feel warm and wonderful.|
|TAURUS: You are being drawn more than usual to the good life, and all it brings with it, which never comes cheap, but you will not be happy unless you can boost your nest egg as well. You will much prefer to keep the mood upbeat, rather than delve into intense discussions on dark subjects. Maybe you will come across sometimes as slightly superficial because you flit lightly from subject to subject. But you will be a wow at parties, since your chit-chat is second to none.|
|GEMINI: What they get with you is what they see. You will not hide much away. Indeed, you are priding yourself on being as upfront as possible. Not that you put on any effort or a performance, it is just happening instinctively with your natural effervescence spilling over. You will put a high value on loyalty, stability and physical closeness. You want more hugs, caresses, kisses and tangible gestures of affection than usual. Don’t let insecurity make you too possessive or stubborn. Just be affectionate and steadfast.
IF IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be extravagant and indulgent so you’ll be pampering yourself with treats. Just have a care since partners may not always agree and obligations will have to be fulfilled. You’ll be dynamic and go ahead though not always clear about your direction career-wise or in life. Be as helpful as you can and success will come more easily. Your way with words will win you respect and arguments. Home will be happier after mid-year.
|CANCER: Not at your most outgoing and sociable, you will be happiest in the quiet backwaters for a few weeks. Even your own company will not be a hardship for short periods, though not all the time. Watch a tendency to put too much stress on surface appearance, or to fit in with whoever is taking the strong position for the sake of peace and quiet. You want to pour oil on troubled waters but you may need to stand up for your rights more firmly.|
|LEO: You do not want to fly solo or be part of a claustrophobic twosome. The more the merrier as far as you are concerned. Though you will also be in a position to give more now, and you are undoubtedly sensitive to the unspoken needs of those close to you. You can be enormously compassionate with Venus in the sign before yours, but you do have to watch that you do not become emotionally overloaded, soaking in too much of their problems.|
|VIRGO: You may think that others are claiming credit for your achievements. Stand up for yourself. Socially you are feeling friendly, laid back, detached and mischievous. You want space, freedom and independence, and a strong individual for a mate who is willing to let you go your own way. You mean to stay loyal but you get odd moments of insecurity that make you suddenly switch your affections off. Don’t say or do anything abrupt, since you will want to go back to the status quo soon.
|LIBRA: Because you come across as honest, outgoing, confident and good with words, you will be a popular companion. Your ability to keep the peace, and generally boost morale could be useful in gaining you prominence at work, and help smooth your path to promotion. Your charm may have a hidden agenda but it will bring the desired result if you just keep schmoozing in the right places. Your sophisticated approach will be just what is needed to bring respect from people in authority.|
|SCORPIO: If life feels a minor struggle just remember that your perseverance will pay off. You will be looking for deeper answers than usual, maybe more passionate connections. You need intense intimate connections in your life with partners who are able to match your emotional depth and yearnings. Luckily, you are being honest and direct about your feelings. You want loved ones to be open and above board. It’s important that you have open lines of communication, since you want titillating and amusing conversation as well as cuddles.|
|SAGITTARIUS: You will be more sensitive to the needs of others and so will be able to help. Just remember to stand firm for your rights. At work, you much prefer to work in a one-to-one partnership than on your own or with a team. If you are off someone, then you are really off and there will be no switching back on again. You will not always feel this intensely, and there may come a point when you wish you hadn’t been so abrupt.|
|CAPRICORN: You will be working hard and practical, more than usual in the time ahead, keen to get details in the right place. You are less worried about getting praise, than in being helpful and being of service, though you will certainly not be short of admirers, social invitations or compliments for a few weeks with Venus in your opposite sign. So make the most of the good times, and have fun. It will boost your morale, your self-esteem and your status.|
|AQUARIUS: In some ways, you feel like a child at heart – spontaneous, colourful and unselfconscious when it comes to enjoying yourself. You will be wearing your heart on your sleeve, and very upfront about what or whom you fancy. Just try to drop your rather stand offish manner. Maybe you have too much work on your plate, but if you make loved ones feel excluded or demand too much in the way of responsibility from them, you might dampen what could be fun times.|
|PISCES: Talking to your nearest and dearest in coming days will help you sort out any family muddles or tensions that have been swept under the carpet. More sensitive and private than usual, you are tending to retreat into your shell and put up defensive barriers against the outside world. You definitely want more attention now, aiming for the spotlight at parties, and given to grand gestures even at work. You are certainly not in the mood for dreary chores or fitting in with instructions.|
