|ARIES: You should not find it too difficult to persuade workmates to carry some of your burden. Everyone will be happy to pitch in together, without too much aggravation. At times, you can get carried away in your enthusiasm and promise more than you can reasonably deliver, and end up over stretched.You’re likely to find your feelings more on public display than usual. At work you will be more scattered than usual but also more supportive. Don’t over react and hear slights where none exist.|
|TAURUS: You want to enjoy a brighter lifestyle where you can flirt, have fun and aim for leisure, pleasure and entertainment. Your self- confidence and social charm are more evident than before. Companions may envy you, but they will also crowd round hoping to be cheered up. You want to see things in a broader way, rather than being sunk in minutiae and detail. If you can and see where life is going to take you, you can put your energy out constructively.|
|GEMINI: Space is every bit as important in your domestic surroundings as tolerance, since you want everyone to be at ease. What you really want more than anything is having an open house policy for family and friends to come visiting. This isn’t the day to fly solo or do things entirely on your own. You’ve really got to push yourself to make new agreements with close partners where money or emotional matters are concerned. It may take compromise, but it will be worth it.|
|CANCER: You can see that what has been holding you back in the past has been your narrow minded outlook and not ill luck or life being difficult. Your confidence in communicating what you want to say is expanding. Your everyday life and contacts are easier, and you are amazed at your new-found tolerance. In your closest relationships, both at work and at home, you may be clinging more than usual. Don’t get jealous and possessive if they won’t fit in with what you want.|
|LEO: Money is fairly easy come, easy go. You are spending as extravagantly as you acquire it. Learning to be more disciplined and saving a little would be a great idea. Think of saving for a rainy day. Not such a bad idea. Looking after yourself physically is more important than usual with the rather low energy Moon that is around. Don’t do anything that is going to really put more strain on your stamina. Just think positively, eat healthily, and sit down more frequently..|
|VIRGO: Everything seems more fortunate as lucky Jupiter moves through your sign. Even if you have problem areas, you can find a silver lining. Jupiter provides the cushion. The world is a more generous place for you than for most. You’re more emotional in the way you connect to people. Really reaching out and expecting friendship in return. You want deep relationships and connections that mean something to you. Just don’t get too wrapped up in your own feelings and forget to ask what others want.
IF IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be happy go lucky, outgoing, chatty and confident. You’ll sense that the winds of good fortune are blowing behind you, bringing good relationships in general and more resources your way. Your emotions will be unpredictable, so take your time about making commitments. Out on the social scene you’ll be a significant presence and won’t be overlooked. At home, you need to be serious and sensible when sorting out tensions.
|LIBRA: There may be secret advisers around who can help you understand yourself better, and let you see that listening to your own inner judgement is really for the best. You don’t want aggravation today. Even if you’re on your own for a short while, it won’t bother you because it gives you a chance to mull things over from the recent past, to get your head together about one or two things and see what you need to do for yourself.|
|SCORPIO: You have a knack for putting others at ease, and your happy optimism is making you highly popular. Be aware that new friends can be of the fair weather variety and may not last through stickier times. Keep a firm grip on old friends, whose loyalty is tried and tested. They may not be so vibrant, but they will always be there. You’ve got to be clear about the message you’re trying to get across, since you may get scattered in a busy time.|
|SAGITTARIUS: Anything you turn your hand to should work well, though the more effort you put in the higher your rewards will be. Recognition and praise will be wonderful for your ego, but beware a tendency towards carelessness. The Moon in the sign next to yours makes you fickle with cash, wanting to save and spend at the same time. You want things that smell, feel, taste nice and look nice, but you will also worry about leaving yourself feeling insecure if you go too wild.|
|CAPRICORN: One minute you’re outgoing and charming, the next rather withdrawn. You will not know from minute to minute what you actually want. It’s rather pleasant, but you need more stable, practical people around you. Your mind is alert, active and wide-ranging. You will want to learn more, to travel more if possible and to meet people from different backgrounds and different countries. Let yourself communicate with as many people as possible, but realise you are not at your most realistic|
|AQUARIUS: Don’t feel martyred because your efforts are taken for granted. Give gladly and look after yourself as well in the absence of anyone else doing it. You do have an uncanny perception of what lies at a more fundamental level, and may sometimes be positively telepathic. Understanding what goes on at a deeper level in all the areas of life where you share, care, relate and co-operate, whether emotionally or financially, will make it easier for you to reach for more security.|
|PISCES: You may become a little bit jealous if you think a friend is off talking to someone else when you want to be talking to them. Don’t overreact. Within two minutes, the situation will have changed again. Basically honest and fair-dealing yourself, you expect everyone else to be the same, which can set you up for disappointment. You tend to see what you want to see. You are attracting to highly charming but rather naive and unrealistic people, who do not always deliver what they promise.|
