|ARIES: You may feel circumstances are pushing you in a way you don’t want to go. But this is really a time for facing the bottom line and getting organised. Partners may be less generous than usual, or even a slight financial burden on you at the moment, so you need to take care that you do not carry too many responsibilities for them. Do what you can since this is only a temporary phase, but also try your best to put down definite limits.|
|TAURUS: There are rather wet blanket influences around so this isn’t the time to be flinging yourself unreservedly into parties and or passionate clinches. Be resourceful, get a grip and tackle whatever muddles or projects you have been pushing onto the back burner. What you have to watch is a tendency to be rather stiff, or too reserved, or even critical in close partnerships. This works well in work setting where you take your responsibilities very seriously but can have a dampening effect on passion and tenderness.|
|GEMINI: Relationships with authority figures may not be that good since there are rather critical influences around that tend to show up flaws and inadequacies. If you do get pushed into a more self-disciplined mode, you will feel grateful at the end of the day because you create more substantial things. You do have personal lessons to learn about how best to look after your body and your health. You cannot afford to over push it as you once did, but must treat yourself sensibly, knowing where your limits are.|
|CANCER: The Sun is at a rather awkward aspect to Saturn, which could cause delays, even gloom and discouragement. Saturn often feels unlucky, because it doesn’t bring results easily, but it has a positive benefit in that it makes you think more realistically. You will be practical, more down-to-earth, really focused on the essentials. You are taking a rather dignified approach to your social life these days. You will be steady and reliable rather than wild or adventurous. Don’t stifle the spontaneous expression of your feelings so much.|
|LEO: You might feel as if your life is trickier than other people’s at the moment, but that probably isn’t true. Accept the pressures around now as a way of holding you back in order to focus. If you concentrate, you will find the answer. Letting your hair down for sheer enjoyment does seem to happen as often as it once did. You somehow feel you won’t be accepted unless you achieve, so you are throwing all your energy into doing rather than being.
IF IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be slow going when it comes to sorting out home and family matters. You’ll need to be persistent and stay calm if you are to put the changes in place which you want. Your personal finances will flourish with more money available for extravagances. Though where you handle money jointly, be wary of taking all the advice you receive at face value. Loved ones will be demanding at times so make sure you organise fun for yourself.
|VIRGO: It’s not a day to expect huge amounts of generosity, or support from other people. You may have to work more on your own, but instead of getting into a gripe and a groan, see where you can use the time wisely to achieve a little more. You are concentrating on what is essential and practical, and have no intention of wasting words. What you say will be very much to the point, but maybe you are coming across as too negative or overly serious.|
|LIBRA: You often achieve a great deal more if you go slower. Out of what may initially seem to be setbacks can come something more useful. Flying ahead at top speed, cutting corners, can end you up going round in circles. You are learning to be better disciplined where money and possessions are concerned. You do have a feeling that you do not have enough or what you have may be at risk. Caution may be a good thing but don’t always look on the gloomy side.|
|SCORPIO: Be sensible and admit if something isn’t working. Cut your losses, concentrate on your successes, change what you can, and accept what you can’t change. A definite decision to face reality will boost your spirits. You do not always get on well at the moment in team situations or under authority figures. You find it tricky to be calm and controlled. You can simmer with resentment and then overstate your case. Try to assert yourself in a steady way.|
|SAGITTARIUS: Sometimes it’s a question of patience and sometimes you have to face up to limitations, to what you can’t change. If you can accept one particular situation now as it is, then you will find it easier to handle. You may be imagining all sorts of horrors that are never actually going to happen. What you need is to get more grounded, better organised and hang onto common sense. Life is certainly changing but that could be for the better, not a cause for concern.|
|CAPRICORN: You may feel cut off from certain people, as if you’re not getting the support and encouragement you expected. Don’t feel sorry for yourself. That will just make things worse. You have to break out of the vicious circle and find a way of bridging the gap. Hard work will make your dreams and ideals come true though sometimes at the moment you despair about the time it is all taking. Just trust that perseverance will get you where you want to be.|
|AQUARIUS: Dithering around, putting it off or looking the other way hoping that someone else will do, is not going to work. Get cracking, push yourself over your resistance and then you will glow with satisfaction at the result. Don’t get too critical, even if you feel landed with too many chores. You are expecting everyone to be as well organised and responsible as you are, but they may just be in a different time of their life, and ambling along at a slower pace.|
|PISCES: ou may feel a bit low, discouraged perhaps. The best tactic is to face up to duty and be conscientious. What is happening may seem negative, but it need not necessarily be bad. You just have to get into hard-working gear. You can’t duck and dive and leave all the chores to someone else. You may be finding it more difficult to relax. Travel tends at this time to be for work more than pleasure or it turns out to be difficult, delayed or involve additional work.|
