|ARIES: You will be feeling pretty good physically, psychologically and in every other way. There’s lots of optimism in the air and you will have a really positive outlook. Though at one point you may feel a bit heavy briefly, but that may just mean you are being realistic, facing the bottom line in one situation. It could be dreary in some ways, but the influences around are very good if you’ve got a lot of mental work to do, things that require disciplined thinking.|
|TAURUS: This could be a lazy day with a nice, warm glow to it, but if you can put a little bit of self-discipline and structure into life, and hard work, you will find the good luck of Jupiter lasts longer. Luckily, you will be quite sharp about detail today. Where you have specialised or really significant tasks to do, you will find you crack along, though you won’t necessarily find it very easy to communicate with other people. Maybe you’re putting yourself across too cautiously.|
|GEMINI: Sometimes these influences can pass by almost without you noticing more than that you’re just feeling good about life. If you can push your pet project a bit further, you will find whatever you touch works out more easily than you expected. If there are slight delays around, don’t get discouraged. Just sound bright, breezy and bouncy, leave it for three or four days, and it will work itself out. Attitude of mind may be more important than anything. Think positively and it will work.|
|CANCER: You’re feeling fairly generous and you want to be around people who are feeling every bit as good as yourself. You will be morale-boosting like mad, and doing whatever it is you can to make sure other people’s confidence is being lifted. Though later you may be looking too much for what’s wrong around you, seeing the flaws and the inadequacies rather than the benefits. It may not be very easy to either open up to other people because you fear they may be critical rather than supportive.|
|LEO: Maybe you are feeling very laid-back, can’t be bothered to do anything very much. You are relying on a wing and a prayer to sort out all your problems. If you can exert yourself to be slightly more realistic, and you’ll find that everything just slots into place very nicely indeed. Your self-esteem is maybe not that great at the moment. Don’t judge yourself by other people’s standards. Just because not everyone fits in with your point of view, that doesn’t mean you are necessarily wrong.|
|VIRGO: Watch you aren’t assuming that if you let money float out of one hand, it’ll float back in the other. An easy come, easy go approach can often end up in a minor budget crisis. This is very much a day to focus in on the small things. Try to see things exactly as they are, which is never as much fun as looking on the bright side, but might prove to be more useful. If you’re more on your own than usual it’s only a temporary phase.
IF IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be definitely upbeat, enthusiastic, lucky and forward looking. You’ll sense you’re into more fortunate times with improvements all round and your confidence soaring. Admittedly you’ll need to push hard to get your views across at work and to sort out practical matters at home but your good humour will be undented. Your emotions will be changeable so you won’t always know what you want. Money will be fairly roller coaster.
|LIBRA: You should be confi-dent, optimistic, bright, breezy and bouncy today. You need to develop your potential in some area of your life. What can happen is that your waistline expands along with your appetite. If you can push frivolities to one side just temporarily and do the practical, solid, sensible, get-it-all-together kind of tasks, then you could get a lot of stuff cleared out of the way once and for all. Then you will deserve a break and can disappear off to play truant.|
|SCORPIO: If you think you’re absolutely right about everything then you are almost certainly wrong. There are wonderfully uplifting influences around today but there is a tiny danger of you becoming so filled with your own ideas and confidence that you get self-righteous. Don’t run yourself or your talents down but try to be fair minded both about your own achievements and those of other people. Remember that you’ve got a sense of humour as well as a sense of what’s wrong with life.|
|SAGITTARIUS: Maybe you are feeling a touch unrealistic, so watch you don’t sail into something thinking you can’t lose. If you keep your feet on the ground, there are definitely fair winds blowing you along. It’s just a question of finding the balance between confidence and common sense. If you are holding back from a serious discussion, maybe you need to think of some way of breaking the ice. There may have been more criticism around than usual recently but you could also be misconstruing something|
|CAPRICORN: Don’t expect ten million off the lottery but certainly look for a good break or a light at the end of one tunnel. This is definitely your lucky day in however small a way. There will be a lilt in your step and a twinkle in your eye.Trivial amusements may not be uppermost on your mind which is just as well since they won’t work well just briefly. If you try to be too cheerful, you’ll end up feeling thwarted.|
|AQUARIUS: Team relationships will work tremendously well. Why fly solo when there is so much support on offer around you? It is important that you fix your eagle eye on the things that need looking at. If you do, you will find that you can pick up the tiny little details that need to be sorted out, which others have missed. This is not the time to be keeping your head in the clouds or ambling along relying on luck to see you through.|
|PISCES: There’s an almost predictive quality to these influences, so trust your hunches and be ready to move. You may not be terribly practical, but you can be effective, at the very least in planning. You do have a very critical, clear view of life now, but it may not endear you to close companions. If you continually point out to them everything that’s wrong, you will end up standing by yourself. Try adding a few compliments first if you have to be honest or critical.|
