IF IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be a mixter maxter year with good luck coming your way along with one and some problems at home and with close partners. You’ll be fairly impatient with family members when your plans don’t run smoothly though it may not always be their fault. You’ll not know what you want your commitments to be to those close, so just drift a little. Money will come in faster but you’ll have to budget for an uneven cash flow with some larger expenses.

ARIES: You will not put up with hypocrisy or insincerity. If you find anyone telling little white lies even for the best of motives, you will be critical. Your direct frankness may ruffle a few feathers, but the right people regard you as stimulating and challenging. Just keep your zany sense of humour handy, since it will defuse tense moments. Given to theatrical gestures just to prove your point, you will be causing the odd stir. If you take care of others, they are much more likely to respond in like manner.
TAURUS: Once in a while you have to let yourself be spontaneous, go crazy for a morning, and see how much better you feel. When you discover you are not quite the person you thought you were, suddenly all sorts of new vistas open up in front of you. What’s more the tension drops away and you feel a larger personality. Push away people who are awkward, back away from circumstances which are tricky and find a little niche where you can be in charge of all you survey.
GEMINI: 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. Now your plans, hopes and aims for the future are changing suddenly and unpredictably. You want more adventure, stimulation and excitement. Initially you may feel slightly insecure if you let go old ambitions, but this is a time to test out the unknown. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
CANCER: Your reputation at work or in the community is definitely of someone who wants to be a mover and shaker. If companions see you as slightly whacky and regard your ideas as off-the-wall, you really don’t care. You know change comes by having the courage to experiment and try out new concepts. If you spend money you will do so in style since you want to pleasure your senses with what you buy. It has to taste, smell, look, or feel good before you will be satisfied.
LEO: You will be fidgety and edgy just over the next couple of days with the Moon in your own sign. More than usual you will want to be loved, nurtured, protected. What is important is to have solid, reassuring, anchoring mates around. You may be regarded as a rebel but really you don’t care. You know if you are too arrive at your own philosophy of living that you must challenge those who are trying to tell you what is best before settling to what suits you.
VIRGO: New friends in your life may be fun but they may not be steady. Take them as they come, and be prepared to let them go when they want. They will not appreciate being tied down. At the first whiff of possessiveness they will be off. You do need to find someone to confide in. But time on your own is generally well spent anyway. Highly sensitive to emotional atmosphere, you may become overloaded by other people’s problems and feelings, so stepping back is a good idea.
LIBRA: 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. Just let it all ebb and flow. Companions may be finding your behaviour contradictory and slightly exasperating. Highly tolerant at times, you may also be erratically stubborn as well.
SCORPIO: Clearly you’ve decided you’re not going to get enough attention at home, so you have to go out into the world and get it. You will be sensitive, very responsive to the mood around you at work, and therefore very good at handling group situations. You have incentive and ambition, but you’re putting it across in a very nice, protective kind of way for other people. Allow your original ideas to take you down new paths. Find out about the latest advances and techniques.
SAGITTARIUS: You want friends and lovers around who do not cling, and are happy to pursue their own course of action without involving you at times. At times you may test each other’s patience, but you always come back together again revitalised after times apart. 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 which makes you feel that everything is brighter.
CAPRICORN: 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. It could only be minor adjustments you are looking for, but if you can make the effort it will put everything on a more solid footing. You don’t want to be stuck in routines and are looking for more adventure. But what you want at the moment may not be what you want in a week or two’s time when you settle back down. scop-icon-5
AQUARIUS: Give a wide berth to grumblers, gripes and general bores. Look for supportive buddies who have been there for you in the past. Compromise is not easy for you at the moment, since you hold strong opinions, and dislike having to fit in just to keep the peace. You will speak your truth no matter what the consequences. Oddly, you will also be tolerant since you enjoy hearing different views, and varied opinions. You just want everyone to keep in their own corner and not interfere with you.
PISCES: You will be more practical, self-sacrificing, and health conscious than usual. You may tend to worry too much about detail, but it does mean you do everything well first time so it does not have to be re-done. Don’t let others demand too much of you. It’ll be important that you are as meticulous as you possibly can. But if you are giving out a great deal then it’s obviously a bright idea to look at your body, see what you need to do to give it a boost.
