|ARIES: You will have to clear a quiet space for yourself to be aware of what really is beginning now. Maybe it will just be an insight into the past or yourself, which gives you the key to how to change the future. Just don’t feel discouraged or assume that being left to your own devices is a bad thing, or a sign that you are unlovable. Treat it as a blessing in disguise, to give yourself — a little bit of emotional space.|
|TAURUS: There may be a casual encounter with a new acquaintance. It may not seem important but they could turn into a good friends in future if you can be on your toes, and make all the right noises. Make sure you know how to contact them again in a few days’ time. It’s important to get the right kind of emotional contact with friends and other people, partly for affectionate support, partly because you want to bounce ideas off them for the future.|
|GEMINI: This is the time to sow the seeds of new ideas at work. They may not seem grand and glorious yet, but they will bear fruit in future if you start off on the right foot with real commitment. If you want more prominence, you’re going to have to do things that draw other people’s attention to you. So do what suits the influential people at work or out in your community. Cater for their needs, then you’ll get all the compliments you want.|
|CANCER: Perhaps you are thinking of reaching out for the holiday brochures, or even of taking up a new interest. Ponder no longer. There are favourable winds behind you urging you on to broaden your horizons in whichever way you chose. In a restless mood, you want to be anywhere other than where you are. But if you are stuck in the one place, go talk to more adventurous people, even find some stretching book to read. You really can’t be bothered with practical routines.|
|LEO: Be sure of your facts and sure of your ground before you move. But if all the details are tied down, then you will be pleased at the results. Just briefly you suddenly lose all thought of being superficial or frivolous. There will be certain points during this time when you’ll want to get down into the depths to investigate, to stand steady until you find the long-term kind of answers. It may be to do with fundamental questions you are asking of yourself.|
|VIRGO: The Solar Eclipse in your opposite sign is important where close relationships, at home and at work, are concerned. This is the time to start afresh. There could even be new romances round the corner for the unattached and on the lookout. In your closest relationships, both at work and at home, you may be clutching a little more than usual. Don’t get possessive if they aren’t exactly fitting in with what you want. Just move over and get in step with them.|
Never was there a better time to start a new diet or exercise regime. You can probably muster up the will power and you know you need to boost your stamina and get yourself streamlined for the days ahead. So stick your colours to the mast and get going. This is a couple of days when other people demand a lot of you. You are having to go out of your way to make sure that everyone is being well looked after.
|SCORPIO: If you have been feeling ignored, you have a real chance to get your glad rags on and kick up your heels. Even if you have been socialising more than usual recently, you want to know how to keep that rolling for months and months to come. No one will damp your spirits. You’ll be promoting yourself in a very strong way, looking for the limelight. You’ll be flirting, laughing, singing and dancing. There will be more emotional depth in relationships with loved ones.|
|SAGITTARIUS: Tuck yourself quietly out of sight, preferably at home, and think about what changes you can make in your life that will bring you more emotional comfort and security over the next 12 months. You want to feel there is a reassuring nest which you can retreat to when the outside world gets too aggravating. Even if you are on your own for a little while, it won’t actually bother you very much because you want to get away from hassle, hustle and aggravation.|
|CAPRICORN: There may be nothing obvious at the moment, but if you take steps early on you can prevent situations blowing up in future. Walk don’t run. You will find at points that the words spill out all over the place and other people may get a bit avalanched, flooded by all your words and miss out on the sense. So once in a while you have to stand back and try to come to a few conclusions before you leap back out again.|
This is definitely when you start to get new financial plans moving. Not in any very expansive way, just cautiously and steadily. Whatever starts now will bear fruit in future but you have to make the effort and keep your focus. Sort out your priorities. You might be tempted to think that money is the only thing that matters. But there are other things, which hold every bit as much interest for you, and can lift your spirits when you are feeling low.
|PISCES: IF ITS YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be a key turning point for you when you’ll be making far-reaching decisions about the longer term. You’ll need to think through your options carefully and make up your own mind. Don’t be swayed by others’ demands. Close partners will be supportive whatever you choose. Your finances will be unsettled though not necessarily bad for a few months, then improve dramatically from September onwards. You’ll be in a positive phase of change.|
