|ARIES: You will be coping with detail and specialised information more than usual. Your mind is sharp and you will be talking more about re-organising your working life. Just don’t be too critical with workmates. Once a month for two days the Moon brings you into contact with insights that make you think about the deeper mysteries of life and how you can transform it. Stand steady for a while to understand what is going on and how you can make sense of it.|
|TAURUS: You will 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 day. You will be chatting away meeting a good response from everyone around since you seem to have the knack of understanding what they want to hear and putting them at their ease.|
|GEMINI: You want to slow down slightly to talk over emotional and domestic matters, after your recent busy patch. 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. Just don’t get obsessed with everything being perfect.|
|CANCER: You will be racing around a good deal faster in the coming days. You will be chatting brightly about a million different things. Be a little bit theatrical and dramatic, try cracking a few jokes. This is the entertaining Moon of the month for you, so there’s no sense in letting it slide by without making a definite statement in what you do. Today, you will be colourful, noisy, attention seeking, popular and rather magnetic as a personality, very charming and persuasive.|
|LEO: Those close in your emotional life will be your most important support, so you will avoid awkward mates at work or out in the community. If you are a little wary of being on your own, put a bit of energy and effort into finding someone nice you can wrap yourself around. Failing a real live human being, go find your teddy bear. In the last resort wear your most comfortable clothes, snuggle up in a comfortable armchair with a good book.
IF IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be confident, lucky, enthusiastic and energetic. Your charms will win you new admirers, compliments and invitations. At home, however, you’ll need to buckle to sorting out practical matters and coping with some emotional tensions within the family. Be reassured that airing resentments will get them cleared out of the way once and for all. Money will flow through more easily though your spending will also rise. Double-check all advice you get.
|VIRGO: You will be chattering more than usual at the moment. You have a bright, curious turn of mind as well as an active tongue. With the Moon passing through your chart area of everyday routines for its normal monthly two day visit, you will not be sitting still for long. There will be more comings and goings, conversations, meetings and general chit chat than usual. You will be more aware of everyday contacts like neighbours, work mates, maybe even brothers and sisters. It’s a real grasshopper mood.
|LIBRA: You will hesitate to voice your opinion because you fear you will not be heard. Listen rather than talk, absorb and keep your own counsel. You may feel slightly controlling about your possessions today, and not too happy to share, but a little generosity will be long remembered. It might be a good idea to go off and do your paperwork if you can be bothered. Then you will be in a better position to know exactly where you are and what the surplus for spending realistically is.|
|SCORPIO: You’ll definitely be out in the swing of things at the moment. You feel popular in team relationships at work or in your leisure activities. It’s very important that you’re not left on your own or pushed to one side just for a day or so. Ask for what you need, which is more pampering, indulging and feeling comforted. The Moon around in your own sign is offering mothering energy, but you definitely want to be on the receiving not the giving end.|
|SAGITTARIUS: You are the one who has all relevant info down to the last detail. Just don’t drown everyone in too many facts and figures. The Moon is now moving through the signs before yours for a couple of days a month, and it’s a time to withdraw into peace and space. Just keep yourself to yourself. You probably don’t want to be too open, since everyone around seems preoccupied. You may feel they are ignoring you or are indifferent to your feelings, but you shouldn’t take it so personally.|
|CAPRICORN: You need friends around today to make you feel loved and appreciated. You want protection and advice about the long term. Obviously, no one makes your mind up but you, but that doesn’t mean that testing out ideas and picking up more information won’t be useful. With the Moon now in your sociable house of group efforts, friends and plans, you are definitely in a zany, stimulating mood. You may also be rebellious and downright eccentric, just to make a point.|
|AQUARIUS: You will be focusing on your working situation in a way that says, “I want more attention, I want more recognition for my talents”, so you’ve got to put your energy into doing things in a new and different way, really get out of your rut and make sure other people are well looked after. Maybe you feel you have to achieve to be loved, so you will be more compelled than usual to succeed. Don’t muddle your emotional worth with outer success.|
|PISCES: Mercury, the chatty planet, is in your opposite sign which means you will want to be talking more than usual to close partners both at home and at work for a while. You do want to get certain things straight as simply and quickly as possible. 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.|
