|ARIES: You need to be able to talk through ideas or feelings with close mates now, and you feel the channels of communication are flowing more smoothly, so you will be making the best use of the rapport between you. You will be picking up subtle clues and hints of the unspoken needs of close companions. This can make you caring, but watch you’re not pulled into carrying everyone else’s problems. Protect yourself from being drained too much or getting dragged into activities that don’t interest you.|
|TAURUS: Since Mercury around at the moment has a cool, clinical eye, you can sometimes nit pick too much, insisting on absolute perfection, or become bogged down in trivia. Don’t get jealous or a little bit down if a friend pays more attention to someone else, because it will pass by very quickly. The Moon around now is rather fickle, so things tend to be good one moment and not so good the next, and then back to being good again. Let it all ebb and flow.|
|GEMINI: Expressing your feelings and putting emotions into words will prove less of a problem than usual. Watch you’re not putting on too much style, speaking more for effect than content. You’ve decided you’re not getting enough attention at home, so you have to go out into the world to get it. You will be sensitive, responsive to the mood around you at work, and very good at handling group situa-tions. You have incentive and ambition, but you’re putting it across in a nice, protective way.|
|CANCER: The more you talk to loved ones, the more you will understand yourself. You do want a chance to let old memories come back to the past, and settle them more happily in your mind. Try and make sure that you’re sorting more entertaining and intriguing things to do, because you want to be mentally stretched. You want to meet new friends, to hear about different backgrounds, different countries. Anything frankly that makes you feel everything is bubblier, brighter and breezier.|
|LEO: You are in a searching mood at the moment wanting to ferret out fascinating bits of information, using your mind for research. Your mind is razor sharp, witty and fast moving. More secretive than usual, you will not let others see if you are upset. Because you’re more tuned into undercurrents than usual today, you may have uncanny hunches. It may be that you have to come to new agreements with very close partners, maybe over joint finances or over your intimate emotional life.|
|VIRGO: You will be more inclined to read the fine print in money matters, being quite pernickety about the tiny details. You are thinking along lines that are practical and conservative, which means you will come up with sound and productive ideas. Whether at home or at work, you want the solid, reassuring support of people who can be there for you. Give a wide berth to grumblers, gripes and general bores. Look for supportive buddies, those you trust and have been there for you in the past.
IF IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be expansive, idealistic, a time to broaden your horizons and trust that luck will be on your side. Resources will be drawn to you as well as improved relationships in general. One close partner may be rather preoccupied or evasive so leave them to their own devices. You’ll be coping well with detail, even more so than usual, being persistent at getting your views across and double checking any financial matters.
|LIBRA: You are a real chatter-box now, lively and enthusiastic. Your mind will be racing ahead of you, leaping from subject to subject at computer speed, so slower-witted companions may have problems keeping up. Don’t let people demand too much from you. Sometimes you have to say, “Enough is enough.” It is very important you are as meticulous as you can be, but if you are giving out a great deal, then it’s a bright idea to see what you need to do to give your body a boost.|
|SCORPIO: Maybe your thinking is a little biased, so try to be clear before you speak out. Your emotions could be colouring your judgement. Given to theatrical gestures just to prove your points you will be causing the odd stir. Relationships with women will be good with the Moon shining its motherly light on you. You will want to show yourself in a positive way, coming across as protective and nurturing. If you take care of others, they are likely to respond in like manner.|
|SAGITTARIUS: You couldn’t care less what tradition thinks or says. You speak in your own highly individualistic way. Head for younger mates since they are forward looking, not stuck in a rut. Push away people who are awkward, back away from circumstances that are tricky and find a niche where you can be in charge of all you survey. You may be feeling more sensitive than usual so you will protect your feelings by withdrawing into yourself rather like an oyster into its shell.|
|CAPRICORN: Your thinking is running along more practical lines than usual, and you want to see a tangible result from your discussions and efforts. Your disciplined approach and a vision of what is possible should make projects at work run smoothly. Scattering yourself too widely, getting a bit frantic and frazzled is all too likely but not very helpful. If you can detach your feelings from your thinking then you will find it easier to focus and concentrate.|
|AQUARIUS: Not terribly practical in your outlook, you may get swept up in your enthusiasm to the point where you lose touch with what is possible. Keep your feet on the ground and be realistic. Going to extremes where cash is concerned isn’t helpful. If you save to the extent you’re not able to give yourself the odd present or treat, you’ll feel deprived, but if you pleasure your senses and give yourself the goodies of life without limits, you will unbalance your budget. Moderation is the answer.|
|PISCES: You are handling discreet information well, attracting secrets without having to ask anything. You will be a bit fidgety and edgy over the next couple of days with the Moon in your own sign. More even than usual, you will want to be loved, nurtured, protected. What is important is to have solid, reassuring mates around. All you want really is favourable attention, so you will be racing around trying to please. Over-eating could be a hazard today since you will want to comfort yourself.|
