Horoscope for 9 Feb 2016

ARIES: It’s a time to withdraw into peace and space. You will want to disappear into your private retreat, harbouring dreams of faraway places. You probably don’t want to be too open, since everyone around seems preoccupied. You may feel they are ignoring you or indifferent to your feelings. But you shouldn’t take it so personally. Maybe you are prone to rather self-destructive yearnings, since you are so keen to be somewhere else. Maybe exploring your artistic talents could bring you some relief.
TAURUS: Obviously no one makes your mind up but you. But that doesn’t mean to say testing out ideas and picking up more information will not be useful. Though you may be too starry eyed about certain people. Maybe they do have a wonderful side, but they are also proving evasive when you need support. Take steps to ensure you are not deceived in future, either by your own over rosy view of people, or indeed by vague promises which turn out to be insubstantial.
GEMINI: You will be wanting more recognition for your talents, so make sure you’ve got to put your energy into doing things in a new and different way, really get out of the rut and make sure that other people are being well looked after. Muddles may be happening because you are not taking a practical approach to certain detailed matters. You can be successful if you find a down-to-earth helpmate. You will be happy with a task well done for its own sake.
CANCER: If you can’t travel literally, you’ll travel in your mind. Get out the holiday brochures, read books with an exotic flavour, do anything that takes your mind off whatever is standard, expected and the same as yesterday. Aim to stretch yourself in at least one new activity. You may meet confusing or muddled situations when travelling now, or in your holiday plans. Nothing seems to sort out quite the way you expected. You’ll need to force yourself to double check details and arrangements.
LEO: There’s no doubt that you need another half before you’ll feel secure in whatever you are doing at play or at work. You may have to be more adaptable to ensure that close partners are on your wavelength. You may have to give before you get, but it will be worth it. You seem to be trying too hard to keep your emotions in control. Maybe you should learn to let your hair down, to be the centre of attention when you aren’t working.
VIRGO:  You’ll be turning your attention to your most personal relationships. Since you may be feeling just a bit more vulnerable than usual, it’s important that you give to help others settle and then in turn they are more likely to do the same for you. It’s a sort of each for each time. You are quite telepathic at the moment, sensing what is not spoken, or knowing about events before they happen. It may help you understand what is going on with close partners.
LIBRA: Keeping your stamina high will be crucial now, since you are being landed with a good many chores. So you need to watch your diet, not in the sense of eating less but maybe more sensibly, and give yourself things that are going to be of positive benefit rather than pull your energy further down. You will not be able to over push your body at the moment by overwork, or excess of any kind, since your system will reject anything which feels damaging.
SCORPIO: Be a little bit theatrical and try cracking a few jokes. There’s no sense in letting things slide by without making a definite statement in what you do. You need to be wary of idealising your mate or your children. If you do then you will see what you want to see and when the reality finally dawns you’ll become unsettled. Highly creative at the moment, you may be building castles in the air around your love life. Put your energy into your talents.
SAGITTARIUS: If you are a little wary of being on your own, then put a bit of energy and effort into finding someone nice you can wrap yourself around. In the last resort wear your most comfortable clothes, snuggle up in a comfortable armchair with a good book. If you can be sensible and grounded then you could ultimately make your dreams of a blissful home life come true. Though it may take time. Just watch unrealistic ideas about family or even property.
CAPRICORN: There will be more comings and goings, conversations, meetings and general chit chat than usual. You’ll be more aware of everyday contacts like neighbours, work mates, maybe even brothers and sisters. It’s a real grasshopper mood. You’ll be more sensitive at this time though you won’t always be able to trust what your hunches tell you. You could lose sight of vital details because you are so busy looking at the underlying connections that link them together. So you could be inspired or mislead. scop-icon-5

IF ITS YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be less sociable and romantic than usual but you will find beneficial emotional and financial changes gradually fall into place. You’ll sense that luck is on your side as generous support brings more security. You’ll be working extra hard and coping with a scattered everyday schedule. So you’ll need to be efficient and get your priorities straight otherwise you’ll end up going in circles. Trusted friends will be there for you.


It might be a good idea to do the paperwork and sort out the budget if you can be bothered. Then you’ll be in a better position to know exactly where you are and what the surplus for spending realistically is. Rather soft hearted, you may be taken in by a sob story and need to be more discriminating when it comes to cash, or you could be disappointed. You may not wish to sound miserly, but that doesn’t mean you can’t protect yourself.

PISCES: It’s very important that you’re not pushed to one side just for a day or so. Ask for what you need, which is more pampering, indulging and feeling comforted. You definitely want to be on the receiving not the giving end. Luckily you will be able to move closer to other people since your barriers are down. This will bring you more sympathy but it will also bring a positively telepathic understanding of close companions. Quiet hunches will prove to be spot on. “>
