|ARIES: Don’t go leaping into a situation too emotionally and then find you don’t really want to see it through to the end, because with the Moon across the zodiac from your sign you can sometimes lose courage about things. So it will be important to aim yourself towards nice, happy, re-assuring mates. You will be throwing yourself wholeheartedly into sports, love affairs or activities with children. You are coming across as dramatic in action, prone to theatrical gestures, not given to subtle hints or understatements.|
|TAURUS: You have to put aside your own need for frivolity and indulgence to make sure everyone else gets what they want. Polish your halo and console yourself with the thought you will soon get your rewards. Being of service to others will give you reassurance and your rewards will come in the days ahead, when more support is on offer. You need to throw your formidable energy into DIY or reorganising otherwise your poor family will continually be getting told off for their shortcomings.|
|GEMINI: Blaming others for getting in your way won’t help. Just slow down. Finding a clear focus or committing yourself to one course of action will not be easy for a while since you are scattering your energy in too many directions at once. Try not to be too possessive. Maybe you do feel clutching and clinging a little more than usual, but it won’t be wise. Have your entertainment and enjoyment without pinning close mates down, otherwise they may want to skip off elsewhere.|
|CANCER: When you get the chance to have a private moment in peace and quiet, you can think about personal matters which have been tucked into the background, maybe mull over the past. If you let things come to the surface in your mind, you can really sort them out. Good food, drink, beautiful clothes and house are all important to your sense of well-being. Watch you are not being too materialistic in your approach since that could slow down your progress.|
|LEO: If you can speak to companions in a cooler, more rational way, they’re likely to connect a little bit better, but you will be whizzing around at high speed here and there, doing all sorts of things in a very lively way. Check out in advance whether what you’re doing is necessary – sometimes you rush too fast and don’t stop to slow down and think things through. You will be keen to cut through red tape, confusion and indecision and get straight to the point.
IF IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be assertive, lucky, enthusiastic and sociable. You’ll be determined that nothing should slow you down which may cause the odd resentment. Happily, your silver tongue will smooth round any problems you set up by being too direct. At home, you’ll need to put in effort to sort out practical problems and to resolve family tensions. Money will roll in faster though you’re unlikely to save since you’ll be tempted to indulge your extravagances.
|VIRGO: Your need for security may be pushing you one way, and your desire for extravagance pulling you the other. Blame it on the Moon which is fickle, and makes you point in opposite directions at once. It makes you want to be solidly protected, but also tempts you to feed your body things that feel, smell and taste good, and they never come cheap. You will be sensitive to suffering and want to work behind the scenes to help those who are needy.|
|LIBRA: Try to put yourself into other people’s shoes when you can. That way you know what you want and what they want as well. There could be a point where you get yourself stewed up about something that isn’t as important as you make it out to be. This is the time to make long-term plans and see where you are going over the next few weeks and months. Setting your goals is crucial since you don’t want to drift around aimlessly in the days ahead.|
|SCORPIO: You won’t feel like socialising, just temporarily, but there are other activities which will attract your attention. Anything mystical or spiritual will interest you since you’re tuned into deeper levels of awareness. You will also be very helpful and compassionate as far as other people are concerned. You tend to expect everyone to dance to your tune. Your straightforward approach will be cutting through barriers and getting to the point of situations a lot faster than usual.|
|SAGITTARIUS: Too much advice can make you bewildered and a bit confused, but not enough input and you make the wrong decisions. Just listen carefully, sift and sort out all the ideas you have been given, and then when the moment is ready, you will know exactly what the options are, what is going to be practical and workable. You will be enthusiastic in promoting your strongly held beliefs. Riding into battle, waving the banner of your pet cause is one of your main hobbies at the moment.|
|CAPRICORN: You will be more emotional in public than usual, which may feel strange, but it lets other people see the more human side of you. You will attract more sympathy, and be more sensitive to what’s going on around you at work. You will want to be the one with your hands on the reins but you need to force yourself to share more. In your personal life, your need to be in charge could lead to disagreements, though you’ll tend not to bring confrontations out into the open.|
|AQUARIUS: Your intuition will be working well, so you can look ahead and know a little of what is coming ahead. A real attack of restlessness will make it tricky to settle down to anything requiring concentration. But why should you? You don’t want to be stuck in a corner. Let your imagination soar. With Mars in your chart area of co-operation and close relationships, you are throwing yourself into joint or romantic encounters with a good deal of gusto.|
|PISCES: A hidden Moon just briefly may be making you possessive about material things or things from the past. Be sentimental, but don’t dig your heels in too much. You need to stand firm until you find the answers you are looking for, but then roll with the flow. Your critical faculties are well-honed, which is valuable in checking accuracy, but it can lead to strained relationships at work. You never feel anyone else does things as well as you, so there can be noisy arguments at times.|
