|ARIES: IF ITS YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be a time to get your head and heart together, decide what you really want and then go for it. You’ll be more independent for a few weeks since you know you have to make your own choices. Try not to be too unco-operative. Luckily you’ll have enthusiastic support at work and be feeling more energetic. You’ll be aiming high and spreading your opinions around vigorously. Close relationships will improve later in the year.|
|TAURUS: Maybe you cannot expect anything major at the moment but things are looking better and you are more able to cope. Just be clear that you need to put your wholehearted attention behind the scenes into whatever you want to put into place for the time ahead. You may run into intense encounters, discussions or differences of opinion now. It will challenge your beliefs but that is no bad thing as long as you are willing to abandon views which have outlived their usefulness.|
|GEMINI: All those new plans you’ve been mulling and muddling over recently can now be given a sensible push. You want to sort out your game plan for the next 12 months. But don’t stop at thinking. Make a few decisions and put them into action. Money can be a tricky subject at the moment so you do need to be absolutely straightforward in your dealings and avoid any connections with unsavoury people. Soft pedal a little on demands, but don’t be too submissive..|
|CANCER: You really want to give your reputation a boost and get the recognition which you deserve. But you know that you cannot rest on your laurels. You need to give new projects a hefty push to make sure that you are building for the days ahead. Get your head and your heart together and make it happen. Shaky bonds are becoming obvious, and will at some point part company since both of you will fight for control, and neither will be willing to compromise.|
|LEO: This is the time you review your beliefs. Your outlook doesn’t remain static from childhood to old age. You constantly discard what no longer fits and take in new information which causes you to alter your approach. You are wanting to improve your working life so that it brings you more fulfilment and satisfaction in the days ahead. That means that work relationships are more intense, at times rather unco-operative since your ideas may not meet with everyone’s approval. But stick to your guns.|
|VIRGO: Your feelings are probably more intense than usual. But maybe that tells you what you need to know about one intimate partnership. If you can lay your cards on the table in private, firmly but tactfully, then you are likely to get better understandings in future. Romance or your relationships with children are not light hearted or frivolous at the moment but a serious matter to which you devote a good deal of energy. Just watch a tendency to maintain too tight control.|
There is no doubt that you need another half at the moment before you will feel secure in whatever you are doing at play or at work. You may have to be less self sufficient and more adaptable to ensure that close partners are on your wavelength. You are gaining an entirely new perspective on all your close emotional and family relationships during this time over a longish period. You are digging deep to find the answers to unresolved problems from the past.
|SCORPIO: You know this isn’t the most glamorous time of the year at work for you, but it could just be the right circumstances for you to re-organise some of your methods. If you can find the discipline then you will find you clear up a good many tangles before they happen. Everyday encounters are carrying a much more significant tone for you at the moment, bringing you intense conversations, in-depth discussions, sometimes rather startling insights. Watch a tendency to become rather stubborn.|
Allow a new facet of your personality shine out without apology or self-consciousness. Most of us hide away parts of ourselves we think others might not like or approve. Throw away your inhibitions and just express what you feel. The right people will respond very positively. You are keen to prove just how resourceful you can be in earning more, re-organising what you possess, and in negotiating skilfully. But as always watch a tendency to become too controlling around money, or indeed spending compulsively.
|CAPRICORN: If there have been any family rifts or differences recently, this could just be the time to wipe the slate clean and start again. Don’t wait to be approached. More for your sake than anything else, you want peace and calm. You are in the midst of a long phase of examining yourself and your life as never before. You are coming to develop depth of self understanding and to grow as a human being in ways you could not have imagined.|
|AQUARIUS: Everyone around knows your heart’s in the right place but they may not be entirely clear about what you’re driving at, so try to collect your thoughts before you dash into discussions. You know you need to get more method and discipline into your everyday schedules. In the quiet times, you are finding, through unexpected encounters or situations, that you are a good deal more resourceful, resilient and a richer personality that you had imagined. Don’t get edgy about sometimes being on your own.|
|PISCES: Cast your eye six months or even a year ahead and work out where you want to be at that point financially as well as emotionally. Once you’ve set your goals, you then need to work out a practical plan for fulfilling them. You can’t just hope it all shakes down, give yourself a push. You are finding that friendships and team relationships are becoming more intense now, which has its upside and its downside. The true bonds in your life will become stronger.|
