|ARIES: IF ITS YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be exciting and excitable, not a time when you’ll want to put up with old compromises anymore. Just don’t rock the boat too hard with close partners or at work. You’ll be determined to find a meaningful direction for your life or vocation in your career. Be persistent and you’ll gradually rise to a position of prominence. One close relationship will move into better times after August with high hopes for the future.|
|TAURUS: Most of us like quite a lot of security and stability, so we get edgy things happen very unpredictably. Life begins to feel a little bit wild or unsettled. Change opens you up to a life that is more exciting and that allows you to be more yourself. Don’t blame other people or the world for the position in which you find yourself. Observe, be aware, and begin to see the benefits and silver linings which come with situations which can ordinarily seem unfortunate.|
|GEMINI: Try not to rock the boat too much or do anything too hasty or impulsive, but certainly you can’t afford to bury your head in the sand and look backwards. You enjoy being surrounded by unconventional friends, though there are times when you get infuriated because they prove unreliable or uncooperative. Everything comes at a price. If you want utter loyalty and security, then you need to find different kinds of people, but you would find that boredom set in fairly quickly.|
|CANCER: Where you have been compromising too much, the influences around now will break you away from these limiting, restricting circumstances. You may need a little bit of courage but, at the end of it all, you will be rather glad that you have found the ability to go with the flow, and put a foot into the unknown. Regard new as positive and alive now. You will want do your own thing in an unusual setting which provides adventure and constant stimulation.|
|LEO: It’s a rather rebellious phase at the moment. At times you may well find yourself rocking the boat a little bit, having the odd tiny dispute with other people. But maybe it’s time to forget co-operation. Go your own way and do your own thing, and offer the same to everyone else around. Tolerance will pay off. You are independent and completely unswayed by traditional outlooks. You have your own slant on the truth, and will speak your mind no matter the consequences.|
|VIRGO: Uranus around now wants to throw life up in the air. It’s a time to be curious, to use your imagination. You’re feeling very alert, quick-witted, very lively, but quite wound up as well – a little bit like an over strung harp in some ways. Your emotions are also on a roller coaster ride and you definitely want constant change in your intimate relationships. The ups and downs of your moods may confuse partners who had got used to the old ways.|
Watch that you don’t get too headstrong and too impulsive and rash. You need to take some responsibility for the long-term consequences of what you decide to do. Don’t stick yourself into the one place, if it feels insufferable, but don’t go too wildly over the top. Stale partnerships will need a blast of fresh air blown through them. If they can’t stand the draught then maybe they are not worth hanging onto. Don’t be afraid of what is changing now.
|SCORPIO: There are likely to be challenges around. It may be in your job, it may be to do with bosses, and it may also be a little bit to do with your body, so watch health wise that you’re not stressed and strained. Routines will bore you and anything that is the way it has always been will make you droop. A more experimental approach is needed. This is not a time for team efforts or forcing yourself to be too co operative.|
Something begins to move out of your life now which you may have been hanging on to for security but basically wasn’t as useful for you as perhaps you’d imagined. Or maybe you are just taking a good hard look at your lifestyle. Cooperation may not come easily to you at the moment. But there is a way of turning your insistence on going your own way to good effect. You will find if you look that your imagination is running along new lines.
|CAPRICORN: There should be some surprises, and things that happen very suddenly, and awakens you. Be aware that this may all bring disruptive events into your life. But you can’t afford to compromise any longer. Maybe you are feeling just a touch insecure as you sense that what you have hung onto as a mooring in the past is now disappearing. There may be changes at home which are causing you to question a good many of your old beliefs. But this isn’t necessarily bad.|
|AQUARIUS: Life is lively, certainly not boring, rather exciting and probably fairly disruptive. You’ve been hanging on to things for security which you need to let go off. So pull away from things that are no longer any use to you. Trying to keep your wits together is never easy when Uranus is around stirring up a good deal of activity in your everyday routines. There will be a constant flow of information coming and going, a fair amount of dashing around.|
|PISCES: Freedom is what’s important to you now. So you have decided to rattle the bars of your cage. You have maybe stuck yourself in a rut recently, or maybe other people have tied you down. It may not be the most diplomatic and tactful of times because there’s a great deal of excitement on the go, and if other people are getting in your way or trying to corral you or crowd you, you’re not going to be putting up with it.|
