IF ITS YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be filled with affectionate, warm-hearted friends who won’t let you sit idle. They’ll be determined to make you keep your eyes on the future and sort out longer term plans. Whatever you attempt should turn out better and more quickly than you expect. So you’ll be on the crest of a wave at times. Though you’ll need to keep an eye on money and be responsible. Your social life will be erratic, sometimes lively and sometimes not.
ARIES: Socially you are on top form, charming the birds off the trees and feeling extremely popular. You’ll say what you think will please, not necessarily what you think or feel, which could make you seem a touch insincere, though you are well intentioned. You want to be flamboyant and exuberant, to be in the spotlight, basking in the limelight. Clearly not a time to be keeping your feelings to yourself. So go flirt, have fun, play games with loved ones, children or social buddies.
TAURUS: You may be indulging slightly more than usual in rich and sweet food, and less inclined to take exercise since you are feeling a little lazy. But at least you should be feeling physically less over stretched, as long as you don’t let your appetite run rampant. You are tending to throw your emotional needs into work at the moment, and can be a little stand-offish on social occasions. Others find you reserved but do not always realise quite how pre-occupied you really are.
GEMINI: You may have twitches of jealousy or possessiveness if loved ones look the other way. Your feelings are running more strongly at the moment which can be heart warming though it can also make you demanding. Still if you don’t ask, you may not get. Your naturally sunny temperament at the moment is making you popular and helping you to avoid the boring routines at work and elsewhere. You are entertaining everyone in sight, and glowing when you have an appreciative audience.
CANCER: Home is where your heart is at the moment, and you adore nothing more than being on your own territory, surrounded by the family and close friends. Entertaining at home suits you better than being out and about at social events. More sensitive and emotional than usual, you want happy family relations and a peaceful domestic existence. You will have an intuitive feel for whatever is happening, but you may over react, and feel hurt by even the slightest whiff of criticism.
LEO: Sharing your deeper emotions is not easy at the moment. Maybe you feel that there is safety and security in numbers for you so you are aiming for a wide social circle, rather than exclusive twosomes. You want to have an escape route handy, especially when boredom sets in. Nothing is making you happier at the moment than peaceful conversations with friends, neighbours, brothers and sisters or workmates. You recognise that the everyday people in your life are the most appreciative and supportive.
VIRGO: You are wallowing slightly in your senses now, adoring good food and drink and sensuous clothes. Anything you can do to make yourself feel beautiful will keep you in good spirits. You do want more luxury things around you at the moment more than usual. Maybe you are trying to compensate just a touch for a lack you feel elsewhere. But don’t muddle love and money and assume if you are not being given lavish presents that you are not really valued.
LIBRA: Flamboyantly direct and shamelessly charming, you are on good form. Even quite competitive when it comes to winning your heart’s desire. Though your mood is swinging from hot to indifferent fairly quickly. What you really want is peace, bliss and some harmony around, so you are trying to iron out problems, act as a peacemaker, and maybe in the process not stand up for your rights. But as long as you watch that pitfall, your natural charm should be working wonders.
SCORPIO: You really want love to be rather like the movies, all bliss and no rough edges around. Just don’t allow your dreams to make you too dissatisfied with the reality of what you do have. An overly strong need for perfection can make you hesitate to commit yourself, when really what is on offer is solid and substantial. You may be feeling just a touch isolated or under-appreciated at the moment. But there really is no need. Just enjoy this quiet time.
SAGITTARIUS: Try not to hide away your oddball streak, since you will be all the more loved because of your originality. Your friendship circle is wider than usual at the moment, with enough exciting and different personalities around to suit your every mood. You have a wonderful knack of putting others at their ease, so you are more than welcome wherever you go. But you will be demanding some elbow room. You will run a mile at the first whiff off possessiveness.
CAPRICORN: Somehow you feel you have to earn being accepted at the moment. Only by being successful will you be valued you think. Understand you are loveable for just being you. If other people can’t see that then they aren’t worth having around. You very much want to be looked up to and admired now, so you are putting a great deal of stress on how you look, sprucing up your outer appearance. Try to stay close to what you really feel on the inside.
AQUARIUS: Even if you can’t travel instantly to exotic places with loved ones, you can always dream and plan. Your heart is definitely yearning for the far blue horizons. Try to add a touch of the colourful to your social activities, since you want to add a touch of space to your off duty hours. You want love or your social life to be an adventurous experience at the moment and you will be happy for loved ones to expand your view of life.
PISCES: Just for a while your passions will be running hot and strong. Maybe you are keeping them well hidden, but you are definitely looking for an adventurous emotional life. Whatever or whoever you have in mind, you will plot and plan to make your dreams come true. But you love people or you loathe them at the moment. Since there is not much in between where your feelings are concerned, it will be wise to approach your nearest and dearest with some diplomacy.
