|ARIES: Mercury is close to Jupiter so you may go slightly over the top, see things bigger than they actually are. It will boost your confidence but it could tip you over the edge into being rather unrealistic. Run with your enthusiasm by all means but have a care that you are not expecting miracles. You are appreciating differences and distinctions, which others regard as too trivial to bother about. But it does mean you’ll spot what they overlook, and that can be highly useful.|
|TAURUS: Maybe you have more enthusiasm than common sense just now. So try not to bite off more than you can chew or promise more than you can deliver, which is sometimes the case. Cut back what you think you can do. Caution and confidence are good bedfellows. You may be ignoring certain details in your determination to see the broad sweep at the moment. But because of your carefulness and long term vision, you can plan well. Just keep your feet on the ground.|
|GEMINI: There’s a whiff of something rather over-expansive in the air, which could make you think you can’t be wrong or you think there’s nothing you can’t do. If you can manage not to go over the score, then you will be able to put your fears to one side and say what you have been hiding away. Watch you are not getting too close to subjects to be able to see them clearly. You may be taking too narrow a view of one situation.|
|CANCER: You’ll want to soothe and smooth round any rough edges and indeed bounce any down in the mouth mates into better humour. You’re feeling good and lively, so everyone else needs to be the same. Just do it with good humour and sprinkle a few compliments around. There’s nothing worse than a joker when others are feeling gloomy. You are making it your business to know everything about everybody at the moment, since you want to have all the necessary facts at your disposal.|
|LEO: If you fly a little too high, you will not be as precise as you might be. You lose the clear touch about details. You will tend to be racing around at top speed. Try not to fall into the trap of thinking you’re always right and everyone else is always wrong. Your thinking and speaking is all directed at the moment to whatever has a practical or financial purpose, which is making you thoughtful. You know it is vital to get everything right.
IF ITS YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be cheerful, upbeat and outgoing. You’ll be sociable and your charms will attract compliments and new admirers. There will be practical and emotional matters to sort out at home or within the family. You’ll need to be calm and persistent. Your personal finances will be in good shape but you’ll need to be alert since not all advice coming your way will be quite what it appears. Keep an open mind and do your own double checking.
|VIRGO: There are days when you can see every tiny detail but you lose the broader view. Then there are days when you can see the whole picture, but miss the minutiae. Clearly this is grand planning time not one for counting beans. Look to see what glum face around you can make crack into a smile. Your boredom threshold is low, and you may jump into action, just to avoid the tedious process of making considered decisions which take account of all the facts.|
|LIBRA: If you can stay flexible, tolerant and open-minded then all your working relationships will go with a swing. But Jupiter around briefly can make you sound a touch know it all, or uppity. Don’t over blow your prospects or promise the earth. Just cut back a little. You may be feeling too sensitive on one score and interpret as criticisms things that others say which were never meant to hurt. Don’t over react until you have checked out what was intended.|
|SCORPIO: Your mind is rattling with ideas which you will spout in all directions. There may be no very concrete conclusions or decisions come out of it all but if you don’t start the process with vigour then you will not have the right ingredients when it does come to making your firm commitments. You have a sharp, fast moving mind at the moment. Remember to write things down since you can be absent-minded, forgetting your brilliant inspirations as soon as you have them.
|SAGITTARIUS: You may be positively prophetic in a tiny way, getting a glimpse of a possibility of something to come. But don’t run away with the idea that you can always trust your hunches. Not all of them turn out quite as you expect. You’ll want to know the common sense reasons for doing everything and will get irritated by companions who rattle on about grand ideas and are prone to flights of fancy. Let a little of your own creative imagination get to work.|
|CAPRICORN: Your mood will be upbeat but perhaps none too practical. Pushing yourself to think through the consequences of making things stick seems too much effort. But just think of the effort involved if you have committed yourself to more than you want a little later on. You see no reason to pull your verbal punches now, so mates may need a thick skin, not because you are malicious, but because you treasure the truth. Your hunches will probably turn out to be accurate.|
|AQUARIUS: You can look ahead now and see a really rosy glow on the horizon. Your optimism will be high but you need to check out that it isn’t a mirage. Being a Pollyanna and thinking everything is going to be wonderful, is morale boosting but it is not always helpful. You are fairly intense at the moment, maybe more stubborn than usual in discussions. You will have to confront those who share joint responsibilities with you, to sort out better agreements and arrangements.|
|PISCES: You may be right but are you being persuasive? If you can really communicate your sense of vision and uplift companions then all will work well. If you come across as self-righteous they may back away. So try to think through not just your ideas but your approach before you launch in. With Mercury in your opposite sign at the moment you are the diplomat par excellence. Your harmonious way of expressing yourself and desire to keep the peace makes you very popularity.|
