|ARIES: Maybe you are feeling resentful because you are not given all the appreciation you might like, but at the end of the day you will pleased by doing a good job for its own sake. You will notice you are increasingly sensitive to the subtle energies and undercurrents around which will make you helpful to those in need, since you will tune in to their problems, but you will have to protect yourself to ensure you do not become over loaded with other people’s problems.|
|TAURUS: You won’t worry about voicing your feelings and desires. More than anything, what you want is to be applauded, so you will be hamming it up madly at times, but so charmingly everyone will clap even harder. You seem to be surrounded by sympathetic or artistic friends, who are delightful at times and maddeningly vague at others. If you feel let down by any of them, ask yourself whether you pitched your expectations too high in the first place. Maybe they are just what they always said.|
|GEMINI: Rather inward looking, you would like to feel more in touch with your soul. Spiritual growth will be more important to you than outer ambition or glittering acclaim for a few weeks. You do want to be more helpful, self-sacrificing and charitable at work and in your community activities, although you may be going about it in a rather unrealistic way, but it’s certainly true if you aim instead for the general good or in more creative ways, you will reap the rewards of your efforts.|
|CANCER: If you spread yourself too thin, you may come across as superficial. Pause for breath and collect your wits. It’s important for you to be well regarded for your intelligence and way with words, so you will need to acquire depth as well as breadth of knowledge. You are questioning almost all your old beliefs. Do you know what you want? No is the simple answer but if you don’t keep asking, you won’t find out what you need to know. Just give yourself time.|
|LEO: You will fight to defend your rights and to get your due, but don’t be too possessive. Flow with the bounty of the universe and it will flow back in your direction. Trying to be in control all the time can sometimes backfire and you lose what you might have gained. You will have to guard against taking people at face value in financial negotiations and partnerships. You will all too easily allow yourself to be misled into trusting people who are unreliable, unrealistic, and even downright dishonest.
IF IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be chatty, exuberant, fortunate and definitely a time to put your best foot forward. The universe will feel more generous and good relationships and resources will be drawn towards you. You’ll still have to push to make your views heard at work and in your everyday routines but perseverance will pay off. Joint finances will continue to be fairly erratic so you’ll need to budget carefully. Loved ones will be preoccupied.
|VIRGO: Everyone should respond well to your presence since you are so warm and outgoing. You bring a real breath of sunshine into rooms when you sweep in. Your constitution should feel stronger than usual. You will believe the best of everyone, and only see what you want to see. This may be rather saintly of you, but hardly helpful when it comes to practical matters. Resolve to be utterly realistic, especially where work partnerships are concerned. You may not be seeing the whole situation.
|LIBRA: Regard this as a gestation phase of a few weeks when you prepare for what is about to come nearer your birthday. Don’t be discouraged by what isn’t working out as quickly as you expected. Nothing comes together spectacularly well at this time of the year for you. Have patience. You want to be even more helpful than usual, but Neptune can lower your energy levels and concentration at times, so don’t force the pace or demand too much from yourself.|
|SCORPIO: You will be sorting out longer term plans for the next twelve months at the moment so bounce your ideas around and see what feedback you get. Helpful practical advice will put you on the right lines, though obviously the decision will be yours at the end of the day. You may have a head full of romantic daydreams and fantasies but watch you do not attract yourself to lame ducks who are looking for a saviour. Kindness may get the better of common sense.|
|SAGITTARIUS: Rather proud and dignified, you are emphasising personal reputation. You will dislike more than usual being passed over for attention or praise at work. You want to be noticed, not made to feel one of the crowd. You are struggling to make your dream of an ideal home and family life come true, though you could be feeling a touch let down. What you imagined has not yet come to pass. Try to sort out misunderstandings with a little tact and forgiveness as soon as they occur.|
|CAPRICORN: Maybe you are not being very practical, but you can always sort out what is workable in a few weeks’ time. This is the much more exciting stage of allowing your visions to flourish. You may not be able to pin down or bring out into the open what has gone wrong. There seems to be crossed lines, mixed messages or unclear communications around. All of which will make your everyday routines or work encounters confused and uncertain, but it’s only temporary.|
|AQUARIUS: At times it may seem a little like a battlefield as confrontations litter your way ahead. You may complain about your difficult path just now but it will only last for a few weeks. Neptune in your chart area of personal finances for a longish while is probably causing confusion, some uncertainty and could make you feel your security is being undermined. But then again, do you really care? Neptune can make you spaced out and rather careless when it comes to cash.|
|PISCES: Blessed with tact and diplomacy, you should notice an improvement in your social life now. Your charming manner and way of putting others at ease will be attracting all manner of compliments and intriguing invitations. Neptune in your own sign tends to make you feel vague about most things, but especially about your sense of identity and direction. What is also does it soften your defences making it easier for you to draw close to certain companions, and appear very sympathetic.|
