IF IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be cheerful, upbeat, idealistic and visionary. You’ll look ahead and know what will work and what won’t, so your luck will be in and resources will be drawn to you. In general your relationships will be easier since you’ll be motivating and inspiring everyone you meet. Though one close partner may want to go their own way. Try not to over react if there are family tensions. Stay calm and be persistent about what matters.

ARIES: Close relationships of all varieties are improving enormously now. There will be an expansive air of ease, enthusiasm and tolerance in your connections and you’ll find that love and business partnerships will prosper. Though be wary of taking all the advice you get. Some may err on the side of over-optimism. With Mars in your chart area of career, high ambition and reputation for a few weeks, your dynamic energy is not surprisingly being channelled into work and achieving your ambitions.
TAURUS: You will not delegate as well as usual but must learn to cut down your workload otherwise you will not cope. Either you need to offload the trivia onto other shoulders, or cut down the breadth of your schemes to a manageable size. You’ll head straight to the heart of the matter and could be candid to the point of bluntness. Your direct, at times brutal, honesty can be unnerving to more sensitive, thin-skinned companions. Don’t try to force others into accepting your viewpoint.
GEMINI: Romance could be on the cards now with Jupiter around in your chart area of fun, enjoyment and love. Oddly enough as you have learned to be more confident and like yourself better, you are finding that other people do as well. You don’t feel the need to apologise for your shortcomings. Though behind the scenes you’ll be deeply secretive, plotting and planning how to get your own way. You will not easily forgive and forget if anyone lets you down at the moment.
CANCER: There will be luck and ease in the areas of relationships and anything involved in domestic life. Over eating can be a minor problem though, since you adore nurturing yourself or even better being mothered. Though at one point there may be heated encounters along the way since you will tend to attract yourself to competitive or ambitious companions at the moment. Even your nearest and dearest will seem rather outspoken at times, so you may have to keep the peace.
LEO: Relationships with everyday folk neighbours and workmates, even brothers and sisters, should be more harmonious now. You have managed to smooth down a few rough edges and are putting everyone at their ease. This will be greatly appreciated. You will want to put energy into health, diet and whatever makes you feel you are boosting your stamina and wellbeing. With Mars in your chart area of hard work you will be throwing yourself energetically into getting better organised, and getting things right.
VIRGO: Pleasure in all its form will be very tempting. Since money will be coming in faster, you will be spending liberally. Try to save some of your good fortune for the future. Romantically upfront, you will head for what you want, and will not be backward about stating your fancy. Socially you will be in demand and popular for your talent as an entertainer. Though you may be a little accident prone since you are feeling more reckless than usual, looking for adventure.
LIBRA: You’ll be a great enthusiast for months ahead, pushing your favourite causes. At times you’ll feel that there’s nothing you can’t do. You will want to be the one who takes the initiative since you are in a dynamic competitive mood. With a certain amount of luck and vision, you will be more likely to succeed. At home you’ll certainly be throwing your energy wholeheartedly into the family or relationship areas of your life. Try not to riffle too many feathers by being pushy.
SCORPIO: You will be appreciating music, movies and other creative entertainments even more than usual. All you really want to do is bliss out, preferably with your feet up. But in the quiet moments you are also developing a love of what lies beyond reality. It can make you quite escapist. Work mates could get edgy if you are too tactless. Watch a tendency at the moment to run, or drive too fast. Try not to blame others for getting in your way.
SAGITTARIUS: In a friendly and helpful frame of mind, you will want to mix with a wider circle of acquaintances. You want to be of use to society and help to make the world a better place to live so you’ll be seeking out like-minded people to help you with your ideals. Your patience will give you the strength to push for what you want. But you’ll be more stubborn than usual, slow to make decisions, and also irritable when you eventually blow a fuse.
CAPRICORN: More buoyant than of late, you’ll be thinking big and aiming high. This is your time to try new schemes with the real possibility that they will work better and faster than you expect. Recognition will come your way and your status will get a boost. With Mars in your own sign at the moment you are fiery, headstrong and not always sensible. Stopping to think will be less easy than usual. But try not to rush in where angels fear to tread. scop-icon-5
AQUARIUS: Not in a competitive mood at the moment you may sometimes fail to take the decisive step which would win you the argument. But really you are happy to hand over credit elsewhere for a while. You can be a real armchair philosopher, with opinions always ready to deliver. If you can remain tolerant and open to different viewpoints, you have a naturally easy way with people, which means you can boost their morale and sweep them up in your enthusiasms.
PISCES: With Jupiter now affecting the cash front in your life, you can expect a blossoming of joint finances. Either business finances or your partner’s situation improve dramatically. Small bonuses should come your way in the coming months. Friendships receive a boost and you’ll find new people coming into your life. You’ll be good at long term planning and your dynamic energy will go into making sure that everyone is pulling in the same direction, at work and in your leisure activities.
