|ARIES: The only thing to watch is not to leap to conclusions. Sometimes you just think about things so quickly, you absolutely know you’re right, and then of course, at the end of it all you stand back and think, “Well, maybe I was too fast. Maybe if I’d been a little bit slower about that, I might have come to a better answer.” Luckily, you’ll be open to new ideas, especially ones likely to upset others, because you have a slightly rebellious streak about you.|
|TAURUS: Don’t be rigid or unwilling to face up to new possibilities — even taking a bit of a risk. It’s a great day to tackle old problems, because you’ll find new solutions. Things that have got stuck and you haven’t been able to sort out, all of a sudden you think, “That’s the answer.” So there will be release of tension, relief around. You’ll be serious and focussing on what will be to your advantage at work. You will have no time for vague discussions which don’t go anywhere.|
|GEMINI: If you are around certain types of people, you’ll get very snappy and edgy, because what you really want is people who are just as on the button as you are. You’ll be making new discoveries, meeting new people and finding out all sorts of little excitements. You’ll be aiming high, thinking big and you definitely want more mental stimulation. You are coming across as fair-minded, tolerant and enthusiastic, so you should be able to find stimulating companions to share your views.|
|CANCER: You won’t be able to sit still and lose yourself in your normal routines at the moment: you certainly don’t want to be doing the same boring old things, so you will be whizzing around in a slightly startling way, which keeps everyone on the edge of their seats. It might be a good idea to find some time to sit down and talk through money matters with close partners. It’s important that everyone is clear what the agreements are.|
|LEO: Today will be bright, breezy and fast-paced. Uranus is a very computer-speed influence. You’re bright-eyed and want stimulation, fascination and a little bit of excitement: you are seeking mental excitement and intellectual excitement, so you want people around you who are not dull, boring or dreary. In demand at the moment for your bright ideas, witty way with words, and diplomatic knack of putting others at ease, you are guaranteed a positive response almost everywhere you go.|
|VIRGO: It won’t be a huge problem, but you seem to be going off in so many different directions at once that you find it difficult to slow down. It might be an idea once in a while to write down a few of the inspirations and bright ideas that either you or other people have. Companions may be quailing a little when you come around at the moment since you are so observant. Try to let them know your intentions are good hearted behind your clinical approach.|
You’ll be racing around, making phone calls, writing letters, having conversations and negotiations, listening and talking to other people. You could end up putting your foot in your mouth if you aren’t careful. There is a good deal of fun and perhaps new people around, but your boredom threshold will be low so you will need constant stimulation. Just don’t speak before you think. Mates secretly admire your courage for being so outspoken, though at times they wonder about your lack of humility.
|SCORPIO: It’s not a time to try and settle down to boring, practical, routine chores, because your boredom threshold will be low. You’re likely to be seeing things in too direct a way. Other people don’t always appreciate the blunt, honest truth, so tone down your comments. You don’t mean them to hurt, but you may not be aware of their effect. You’ll be more emotional than usual, over-sensitive to a whiff of criticism. Try not to sound too defensive; usually it won’t be necessary.|
|SAGITTARIUS: Uranus is very fast-moving and its influence means you’re zipping around at high speed all over the place. Uranus has a wonderful, electrical quality. You want life to be stimulating and fascinating, and everyone you seem to meet is rather interesting. You’re a little bit scattered in one way. Because you see the truth of one situation clearly you may be coming across as rather critical. Try to add tact to honesty and make it obvious to mates that you don’t mean to cause harm.|
|CAPRICORN: You want to find new answers to old problems. There will be all sorts of things happening rather quickly, and you’ll be able to spot the things that will widen and broaden your life. Maybe you are slower than usual to make up your mind, but once you get on track nothing will budge you. You are taking a rather hard headed line at the moment, focusing on the practical and sensible. You are uneasy about lofty discussions about vague notions which never seem to lead anywhere.|
There’s a bit of a relief of tension, a bit of release. There may be new possibilities coming up, new ideas you have that allow you to do things you haven’t been able to do before, or maybe just somehow circumstances change a little bit. With Mercury in your own sign, you are quick witted at the moment and at times rather sharp of tongue, so you will need to pause to think before you speak. Mates could be startled by your direct comments.
|PISCES: IF IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be excitable and exciting as you decide to aim high and broaden your horizons. You’ll be actively seeking out adventure and anything that gets you away from routines. Close partners will be especially enthusiastic in their support and happy to fit in with your plans. One friendship on the other hand may be tense and rather tricky to know how to handle. Be calm and tactful. Money will improve in a few months.||“>|
