|ARIES: Romantically upfront, you will head for what you want, and will not be backward about stating your fancy. You may be a little accident prone since you are feeling more reckless than usual. It’s important to get the right kind of emotional contact with friends and other people, partly for affectionate support, partly because you want to bounce ideas off them for the future. This is your time to set the agenda for the next month, and whoever is around can help you sort out your options.|
|TAURUS: You will throw your energy wholeheartedly into the family or relationship areas of your life, but you also want more attention out in the world. If you want more recognition or appreciation then the fast track there is to cater for the needs of those around you at work or out in the community. Be caring and kindly and you will get the compliments you desire. The right people are very impressed with your wit, wisdom, flow of ideas and articulate way of expressing yourself.|
|GEMINI: Workmates could get edgy if you are too tactless. Watch a tendency at the moment to run, or drive too fast, which makes you a little accident prone. Your tendency of blaming others for getting in your way may not go down too well. In a restless mood, you want to be anywhere other than where you are. But if you are stuck in the one place, go talk to more adventurous people, even find some stretching book to read. Order more holiday brochures.|
|CANCER: You will be more stubborn than usual, slow to make decisions, and maybe also irritable when you eventually blow a fuse. Your patience will give you the strength to push for what you want over a longish period. There will be certain points in the day when you want to get down into the depths to investigate, to stand steady until you find the long-term kind of answers. It may be to do with financial or emotional matters, or more fundamental questions you are asking yourself.|
|LEO: You’ll be fiery, headstrong and not always sensible. Stopping to think will be less easy than usual, but try not to rush in where angels fear to tread. In your closest relationships, both at work and at home, you may be clutching a little more than usual, hanging on to partners. Don’t get jealous and possessive if they aren’t exactly fitting in with what you want. Just move over and get in step with them. Relationships always require compromise.|
|VIRGO: This is a couple of days when other people demand a lot of you. You’re having to go out of your way to make sure that everyone is well looked after. If you feel a bit emotionally squashed because of that, try and give yourself a few tiny treats through the day. You may find that your emotional state could affect your physical well being, so you need to look to the state of your heart as well as looking after your body.
IF IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be enthusiastic and self-confident with relationships improving all around and money or resources being drawn your way. But you will still be busy behind the scenes sorting out plans and pulling strings. If you feel your views are not getting across at work or in your everyday life, don’t get discouraged. Be persistent. Loved ones may be evasive or preoccupied but you’ll still make a considerable mark out on the social scene.
|LIBRA: Your dynamic energy will go into making sure that everyone is pulling in the same direction. You will be promoting yourself in a very strong way, looking for the limelight. You’ll be flirting, laughing, singing and dancing. There will be more emotional depth in relationships with loved ones, whether it’s children, adults or indeed social companions. You will find it difficult to conceal your feelings, so your spontaneous, playful, rather dramatic whims will be on display. You will definitely be at your happiest when heading for enjoyment.|
|SCORPIO: Although you’re keen to push your ambitions ahead, you can’t move at high speed all the time. Even if you are on your own for a little while, it won’t bother you much, because the Moon’s position today is a hint to cool down, calm down and get away from hassle, hustle and aggravation and find time for personal reflection. You don’t want to be overwhelmed by the things of the outside world. A happy family life and contented domestic situation is what you’d like most of all.|
|SAGITTARIUS: You could be candid to the point of bluntness. Your direct, at times brutal, honesty can be unnerving to more sensitive, thin-skinned companions. Don’t try to force others into accepting your viewpoint. You’ll find at points today the words spill out all over the place and other people may get a bit avalanched, flooded by all your words and miss out on the sense. Once in a while, you have to stand back and try to come to a few conclusions before you leap back out again.|
|CAPRICORN: Deeply secretive, you will be plotting and planning how to get your own way. You will not easily forgive and forget if anyone lets you down at the moment. Sort out your priorities and decide what really is of value to you. With the Moon around in Aquarius you might be tempted to think that money is the only thing that matters, but there are other things that hold every bit as much interest for you and can lift your spirits when you’re feeling low.|
|AQUARIUS: There may be heated encounters along the way since you will tend to attract yourself to competitive or ambitious companions at the moment. Even your nearest and dearest will seem rather outspoken at times, so you may have to keep the peace. In a restless mood, you’ll be ebbing and flowing like the tide, which is why you need really solid, motherly mates around to be protective, nurturing and a little bit more practical perhaps than you feel. You will be unduly sensitive to the undercurrents.|
|PISCES: You will want to put energy into health, diet and whatever makes you feel you are boosting your stamina. With Mars in your chart area of hard work you will be throwing yourself energetically into getting better organised, and getting things right. Now you may feel a little bit discouraged or low in self-esteem, but there’s really no need for it. Don’t assume that being left to your own devices is a bad thing, or a sign that you are unlovable.|
