IF ITS YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be chatty, lively, a time to kick up your heels and have fun. You will be taking your responsibilities seriously as well and gaining success more easily than you expect. So praise and recognition will come your way. Friends and team mates will be energetic though you may not always appreciate the pressure they put on you. One future project may cost more than you expect so go cautiously. Be gentle and forgiving at home.
|ARIES: You see no reason to pull your verbal punches now, so mates may need a thick skin, only because you treasure the truth. You will have strong hunches which will probably turn out to be accurate. You’re maybe meeting new people; you’ve got a great sense of interest in life. So whatever else is going on in the universe or in the Zodiac, this is go-ing to be enough to perk you up for the odd little half hour here and there.|
|TAURUS: The only thing to watch is not to leap to conclusions. Sometimes you just think about things so quickly, you absolutely know you’re right, and then of course, at the end of it all you realise that maybe had you been a little slower about things, you could have come to a better answer. You are fairly intense at the moment, maybe more stubborn than usual in discussions. You’ll have to confront those who share joint responsibilities with you, to sort out better agreements.|
|GEMINI: Right now you seem to be going off in so many different directions at once that you find it difficult to slow down. It might be an idea once in a while to write down a few of the inspirations and bright ideas that either you or other people have. 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 is doing wonders for your popularity.|
|CANCER: You are now in a rather positive and pleasant mood. So everything around will be bright, breezy and somewhat fast-paced. In the days ahead you will want stimulation, and a little bit of excitement, so you want people around who are not dull, boring or dreary. You are appreciating differences and distinctions, which others regard as too trivial to bother about. But it does mean you will spot what they overlook, and that can be highly useful in a variety of ways.|
|LEO: If you are around unreliable people, you’ll get very snappy and edgy, because what you really want is people who are just as on the button as you are. You’ll be making new discoveries, meeting new acquaintances and finding out all sorts of little excitements. 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.|
|VIRGO: You have that wonderful, electrical quality now, and are zipping around at high speed all over the place. You want life to be stimulating and fascinating, and everyone you seem to meet is rather interesting. Maybe you are a little bit scattered in one way. 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, selecting some facts and ignoring others for no good reason.|
|LIBRA: Conversations with other people will be electrical and stimulating. You will not want to be around those who are slow-witted since they’ll drive you spare. You’ll get a little bit impatient and will probably get over-forceful and over-honest. Indeed, you might just tell other people exactly what you think of them, which may not go down too well. 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.|
|SCORPIO: There’s a bit of a relief of tension, a bit of release. There may be new possibilities coming up, new ideas you have that allow you to do things you haven’t been able to do before, or maybe just somehow circumstances change a little bit. Your thinking and speaking is all directed at the moment to whatever has a practical or financial purpose, which is making you thoughtful. Others may carp about your slowness but you know it is vital to get everything right.|
|SAGITTARIUS: You want to find new answers to old problems, and you will be able to. There will be all sorts of things happening rather quickly, and you’ll be able to spot the things that will widen and broaden your life. So there will be release of tension, a bit of a relief around. 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.
|CAPRICORN: You won’t be able to sit still in your normal routines, and don’t want to be doing the same boring old things. So you’re whizzing around in a slightly startling kind of way, which is good for you and good for everyone round about you because it keeps everyone on the edge of their seats. You may be feeling too sensitive on one score and interpret as criticisms things that others say which were never meant to hurt. Check out what was intended.|
|AQUARIUS: This is a time for feeling stimulated, alive, awake, and mentally on your toes. So whatever else is going on in the Zodiac at the moment, there will be odd moments through the days when you are in a very lovely, lively, fun-loving kind of mood. You have a sharp, fast moving mind now with Mercury in the inventive area of your chart. Remember to write things down since you can forget your brilliant inspirations as soon as you have them.|
|PISCES: Don’t be rigid or unwilling to face up to new possibilities – even taking a tiny bit of a risk. It’s a great time to tackle old problems, because you’ll find new solutions. Things that have got stuck and you haven’t been able to sort out, all of a sudden you know the answer. You’ll want to know the common sense reasons for doing everything and will get irritated by work mates who rattle on about grand ideas and are prone to flights of fancy.|
