|ARIES: Your naturally sunny temperament at the moment is making you popular and helping you to avoid the boring routines at work and elsewhere. You are putting on a great performance, entertaining everyone in sight, and glowing when you have an appreciative audience. You need an escape route from dreary mates or restrictive chores. You want pals as well as lovers now, nothing too intense or claustrophobic will do. There may be messages coming in from abroad or from a distance away.|
|TAURUS: More sensitive and emotional than usual, you want happy family relations and a peaceful domestic existence. You will have an intuitive feel for whatever is happening, but you may over react, and feel hurt by even the slightest whiff of criticism.Your emotional responses will be more intense for a couple of days. Important, influential or strong-minded people will be drawn into your orbit, but you need to tread softly, and not say everything you feel or think.|
|GEMINI: Nothing makes you happier at the moment than peaceful conversations. The everyday people in your life are the most appreciative and supportive. Try not to be jealous or possessive or get yourself unsettled if things are not going precisely as you want. You will tend to react over-quickly to things, hearing slights where none exist. Balance is what you are aiming for, though you may be swinging to extremes in the effort to find it. Having a close partner is vital to your confidence now.|
|CANCER: Maybe you’re trying to compensate for a lack you feel elsewhere, but don’t muddle love and money and assume if you are not being given lavish presents that you are not really valued. Other people may be demanding quite a lot of you, so watch you don’t end up feeling resentful. Having to fit in all the time with other people’s plans, whims, suggestions and orders can be a bit of a bore. Do what makes you feel virtuous, but don’t let other people push you too much.|
|LEO: What you really want is peace, bliss and harmony, so you are trying to iron out problems and maybe in the process you don’t not stand up for your rights. As long as you watch that pitfall, your natural charm will work wonders, putting everyone around you at ease, so clearly your popularity rating is high. You want to be flamboyant and exuberant, to be in the spotlight, basking in the limelight. Forget routine chores and duck out if you feel an order coming your way.|
|VIRGO: You may be feeling isolated or under-appreciated at the moment, but there really is no need. Enjoy this quiet time since it won’t last long. With Venus tucked out of sight your role is to be giving rather than receiving. This is a good day to be self-protective and retreat into a private place, preferably at home. So much the better, if you can man-age to take the day off, put your feet up. Even if you’re at work, you need some kind of protective niche.
IF IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be upbeat, lucky, restless and forward looking. You may not be as sociable as usual so will need to pamper yourself in the quiet moments. Push hard to get your views across at work and in your everyday life. Hard work will sort out domestic and family matters and ensure you feel more securely based in future. Your emotions will tend to veer around erratically so you won’t always know what you want. Just take your time about decisions.
|LIBRA: You have a wonderful knack of putting others at their ease, so you are more than welcome wherever you go, but you will be demanding elbow room. You won’t put up with jealousy in any form and will run a mile at the first whiff off possessiveness. You may be saying things to others in a way that they don’t entirely understand. If you could stand back and be a bit more sensible about one or two things, it really would help enormously.|
|SCORPIO: Try to find time to stay close to what you really feel on the inside. You will be amazingly charming as long as everything goes your way, otherwise your stubborn side may show through. Money and security are the main things on your mind for a brief spell. It’s well worth your while pushing yourself into doing boring things like the paperwork. Once you have that organised, not only will you feel better, you’ll be able to spend with a clear conscience.|
|SAGITTARIUS: You will be happy for loved ones to expand your view of life and teach you a great deal. You want to be entertained and informed at the same time. Try not to be hypersensitive or over react to other people’s comments. Sometimes you can just get yourself worked up about things that are not as important as you’re making them out to be. Try to give yourself some space to just wind down and be a bit more at peace if you possibly can.|
|CAPRICORN: You love people or you loathe them at the moment; there isn’t much in between where your feelings are concerned. You want to live life at a profound level and don’t care for anything frivolous or superficial. If you’re around others too much, you’ll end up being subjected to their demands so you might as well give yourself permission to do what you want. You won’t manage it entirely, of course, but for some of the day give yourself a chance for reflection.|
|AQUARIUS: Socially, you’re on top form and feeling extremely popular. You will say what you think will please, not necessarily what you think or feel, which could make you seem a touch insincere, though you are well intentioned. You may be dashing around, trying to sort out what they think about this or that, and getting confused as a result, but at the end of it all you will be able to come to your own judgements. Then when the moment comes, you’re ready to jump.|
|PISCES: ou tend to throw your emotional needs into work and can be a little stand-offish on social occasions. Others find you reserved but do not always realise quite how shy or even pre-occupied you really are. The Moon is the nurturing, mothering sign, and sitting at your mid heaven for a couple of days, it is clearly nudging you into being more protective of those around at work or out in the community. The more you give, the more everyone will think you are absolutely marvellous.|
