|ARIES: Jupiter around now always looks for the silver linings. It usually creates a few as well since it’s a fortunate influence. In fact it’s not so much luck, just that your intuition is working well, so you end up in the right place at the right moment, saying the right thing. You’ll feel more buoyant than for a while. You genuinely want to be of service and make everyone’s life easier. Having the right support around you meanS that you can make faster progress.|
|TAURUS: Watch how you go, because you could find that you overdo spending, that you just go off in 75 directions at once and do things that are not entirely sensible. Being out in the centre of activities at parties or in games will find you absolutely in your element. Your popularity is soaring with loved ones, children and social mates, so there is no sense in holding back. Allow yourself to step forward confidently with as much panache as you can muster.|
|GEMINI: It’s not a time when you will expect to find too many difficulties with other people or with yourself, except for one or two downsides which are spending too much money or being too lazy or thinking you’re right about absolutely everything. Just watch you are not getting stuck in the past only seeing the bright side, and finding it difficult to let go. Try to stand up for yourself if certain family members are taking your good nature too much for granted.|
|CANCER: If you can find the self-discipline, avoid being careless or lazy then there are rather fortunate influences around. You are likely to be very generous to others, to yourself, slightly extravagant all round. There should be opportunities galore around you for the taking and your bouncy self confidence will certainly attract positive responses from everyday people, like workmates or neighbours. You could even be in the mood to take up new studies. Your curiosity will send you in search of better answers.|
|LEO: You need to keep your feet a little bit more on the ground, find a little self discipline. Otherwise you will promise more than you can deliver. Or you can rush in where angels fear to tread and over-extend yourself, taking on far too many commitments. You should be earning more or at least you are definitely finding that your prospects are brighter than they have been. Cash could be sliding through your fingers rate if you do not take care.|
|VIRGO: If you’re normally under-confident, the expansive influences around now will boost you up rather happily. If you’re normally a touch arrogant and over-confident then they can send you into thinking that you’re Superman or Superwoman. You are inspiring a great deal of trust in close companions, though sometimes they think you are a touch over optimistic. Maybe you do look on the bright side of life, and exaggerate a little now and again, but you mean well, and no one will really mind.|
If you are normally a little bit under-confident, lacking in self-esteem, the Jupiter boost will do wonders for you. It boosts you up. But if you normally are a bit over the top, this will send you sailing off into the stratosphere. As you gradually come to terms with your own hidden needs, you have a better understanding of those around who may be struggling slightly. Listen to your instincts since that quiet inner voice will tell you all you need to know.
|SCORPIO: The Sun is now at odds with Jupiter, but nothing will be awkward, as long as you avoid going too over the top. Pitch your hopes too high, and you have further to fall. But if you can discipline yourself, there’s luck around. Friendships are working well now and you should be mixing confidently with large numbers of people at work and in your leisure activities. This is an optimistic time when you can look ahead and see really rosy glows on the horizon.|
|SAGITTARIUS: It’s important to be sensible with other people. You can win them over to your side if you sweep them up in your enthusiasm. But if you sound self-righteous, then they’ll back away. Be straightforward, and mates adore you. Success should be coming your way more easily than usual so you might as well make hay while the sun shines. Praise and a growing appreciation of your talents and personality at work or out in the community will have you beaming with pleasure.|
|CAPRICORN: You are more than likely going to be feeling cheerful, charming, extravagant, indulgent and very optimistic. But this can be a little bit of a problem if you’re going to be to assume that everything is going to work wonderfully well just by luck, without you putting any energy or effort in. This is a time for broad thinking. Your confidence will be soaring. Let yourself speak out if you feel the urge. But also realise that your ideas may not all be practical.|
If you can keep one scheme within bounds, put a few limits on your plans and your hopes then you could do well. But if you fly like Icarus in mythology too high towards the Sun you might find you have further to fall. Mates will be in a position to be more generous to you than they have been. Suddenly the world seems a luckier place, so you can expect money to flow your way with less effort than you might have expected.
|PISCES: IF ITS YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be upbeat especially where close partners and your general confidence is concerned. You’ll be at a crossroads and have significant decisions to take about your path ahead. It’s your life and should be your choices. You’ll be more independent for a few months but close partners will be supportive. Friendships and team relationships will be intense and need to be handled tactfully. Money will be up and down until September when more will come in.|
