|ARIES: IF ITS YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be practical, hard-working, enthusiastic, a time when you intend to get your finances in order and push through all obstacles. You won’t always want to compromise yet will still want to be in charge. It may not go down well either at work or at home. So try to be subtle and persuasive. Close relationships will improve in the final four months as you share more interests and activities together.|
|TAURUS: The Moon in your own sign always has that ebbing and flowing quality, one moment outgoing and charming, the next moment rather withdrawn. You will not know from minute to minute or half hour to half hour what it is you actually want. It’s rather pleasant, but you do need more stable, practical people around you. You will be quick witted at the moment and at times rather sharp of tongue, so you will need to pause to think before you speak.|
|GEMINI: Your concentration for detailed or specialised chores is not great at the moment. You want to disappear into daydreams to protect yourself. Don’t feel martyred because your efforts are taken for granted. Give gladly and look after yourself as well in the absence of anyone else doing it. You have a real understanding of other people’s suffering at the moment, which gives you added sympathy and will make a supportive listener. You don’t feel you have to fight to get attention for yourself.|
|CANCER: You may become a little bit jealous if you think a friend is off talking to someone else when you want to be talking to them. Don’t overreact. This is all down to the Moon which is very fickle. Within two minutes the situation will have changed again. Though you are very open to new ideas, especially ones likely to upset others, because you have a slightly rebellious streak about you. You have the courage of your convictions and won’t be swayed by criticism.|
|LEO: You’re likely to find your feelings more on public display just now. At work you will be more scattered than usual but also more supportive. Just don’t over react, hear slights where none exist. You’ve got to stand a little bit steady for other people. You have to be of a bit of an anchor. You’ll be practical, methodical, ambitious, 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.|
|VIRGO: You are rather lofty in your interests, 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. You want to see things in a much broader kind of way, to take the bird’s eye view rather than being sunk in minutiae and detail. Look into the future and see where life is going to be taking you, then you’ll put your energy out very constructively.|
Push yourself to make new agreements with close partners where money or emotional matters are concerned. It may take a compromise all round, but it will be worth it. So give a little bit, take a little bit, shift ground and meet in the middle. You will not take your emotional life lightly now or with a laugh. Intensity is what you crave and deep passion. You will either be on people or off them. It’s love or loathing, nothing wishy washy in between.
|SCORPIO: 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. Though there could be the odd confrontation, not because you’re assertive, but you just feel a little over-emotional. If you do stir up a problem, just don’t go too far. You won’t really want to see it through. You’ll start something and at the end of it all you wish you hadn’t bothered.|
Companions may well be quailing a little bit when you come around at the moment since you are so observant. It would be a good idea to let them know your intentions are basically good hearted behind your rather clinical approach. Looking after yourself physically is more important than usual with the rather low energy Moon that is around. Don’t do anything that is going to really put more strain on your stamina. Just think positively, eat healthily, and sit down more frequently.
|CAPRICORN: You’re much more emotional in the way you connect to people. Really reaching out and expecting friendship in return. So you want relationships that are quite deep and connections that mean something to you. Just don’t get too wrapped up in your own feelings and forget to ask what others are wanting. Mates secretly admire your courage for being so outspoken, though at times they wonder about your lack of humility. Still nothing ventured, nothing gained as far as you are concerned.|
|AQUARIUS: You don’t want aggravation. What you really yearn for is a pleasant, relaxing time. Even if you’re on your own for a short while, it won’t bother you because it gives you a chance to mull things over from the recent past, to get your head together about one or two things and see what you need to do for yourself. More emotional than usual at the moment, you may be over-sensitive to the slightest whiff of criticism. Try not to sound too defensive.|
|PISCES: You’ve really got to be clear in your own mind about the message you’re trying to get across, since you may get scattered in a time. You have too many loose ends flying around your head, too many people to chat to or visit. So you could be spreading yourself too thin and sounding unfocussed. Because you see the truth of one situation clearly you may be coming across as rather critical. Make it obvious to mates that you don’t mean any harm.|
