IF IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be a time to follow your enthusiasm and wilder flights of fancy. Don’t stick yourself in a rut and be too cautious. Not all of your plans will be workable, but some will. You’ll push ambitiously ahead and expect everyone around to work as hard as you. There’ll be a few upheavals at home or within the family which could be unsettling but they will give you more freedom eventually. Affectionate friends will be a great support and boost your morale.
ARIES: You’ve got into one or two emotional muddles and have acted without thinking things through enough. With more understanding you can prevent yourself from ending up in this place in future. Compromise does not come easily to you at the moment. You will be wonderfully tolerant as long as everyone gives you a good deal of elbow room. But you can just as easily be uncooperative and rather brusque if you feel you have to toe anyone else’s line.
TAURUS: Other people may not pick up every word you say, but they certainly understand your heart’s in the right place. You seem to be giving of yourself in a way that others can really tune into at an emotional level, which is extremely positive. Try to pause for breath once in a while. Uranus is trying to tell you to stop hiding away the really unique part of your personality. The more you try to be conventional, which you are not, the more tension builds up inside you.
GEMINI: What you really want are treats, luxuries, and presents. You’ll be very attached to the good things. It can make you a touch possessive, so you have to look more laid back than you will feel. You will fight without quarter for what is right. And will be straight onto your high horse if you see anyone’s freedom being threatened, especially your own. At best, this makes you progressive about almost all the team and group activities you are involved in.
CANCER: You need to belong, to be loved, cuddled and cosseted, so look for reassuring companions who will give you more help and support than usual and be an anchor for you. Try to avoid overeating, because you will pamper yourself a bit, and avoid overreacting to certain situations. Giving in does not feel that hot an idea at the moment so workmates may find you uncooperative. As long as you are left free to follow your own course, you can be amazingly tolerant and broad minded.
LEO: Maybe you sense that companions are preoccupied. They’re all tied up in what they’re doing, and you want to just disappear into your own space to think things through. Long distance travel is likely to be both exciting and rather disruptive, whether you are on the move or just in the planning stages. Expect the unexpected and you will not be disappointed. Just do not take risks or get too impatient. Take it calmly and you will get there eventually.
VIRGO: Not all signs resonate to Moon influences which are fast moving and emotionally subtle. But if you do and are feeling a little bit gloomy, then just know it may just be something that isn’t important, that is going to pass by so quickly that it’s not worth paying much attention to. Nothing ever stands still for long with the Moon around. You may be handling money in an erratic manner or attracting yourself to rather unreliable people or advice. Try to be sensible rather than impulsive.
LIBRA: You’re the one who’s centre of the group at work and who’s really making things work for everyone, so that’s important to focus in on. Being sensitive and sympathetic will be part of your aim, but don’t end up being too fickle because it really isn’t going to be helpful. Long running relationships may be having their ups and downs because you find close commitment suffocating, and compromises grate on your free spirit. You will speak your truth no matter what the consequences are likely to be.
SCORPIO: You’ve got a great urge to get away from ruts and routines, from tedious chores, boring people and fly a little bit higher. You want to broaden your horizons, however you can. Travel would suit you best but there are other ways to keep you interest engaged. Your working relationships may not be easy with mates or bosses, since the situation seems on edge or insecure. Just try to see that change may initially seem unwelcome or unsettling, but it will open new doors for you.
SAGITTARIUS: Don’t become possessive about property or hanging on sentimentally to memories from the past. Certainly you don’t want to be throwing possessions or money away, but not clinging on too tightly really is important. If you open up and stop controlling, then more will come. Loved ones may be stimulating, lively but at times downright uncooperative. Rebelliousness is in the air all round. You must let out your creative streak to do whatever is least conventional and most you. Uranus is around which brings sudden inspiration.
CAPRICORN: Aim for togetherness, for keeping things quiet, calm, harmonious and rather pleasant, and you’ll find by the end of the day that you’re glad you did, because relationships have improved a lot. Ignore any niggling worries you have about close partners, since it may all be in your imagination. You can be uncompromising, even uncooperative at home or with loved ones at the moment, since you hate being tied in too much. What you want is a home life that is different from normal.
AQUARIUS: Your emotional life may be affecting your body slightly more today than usual. If you’re feeling a little jittered and jangled, and don’t really become aware of it, what happens is your body picks it up, so you end up with creaks and groans, sniffles and low energy. If you become aware of the psychological causes, it’s amazing how your body can cheer up. Your mind may be racing so far ahead of your tongue that you get tangled up when trying to explain what you mean.
PISCES: There’s a spontaneous, exuberant, boisterous mood in the air as far as you are concerned, so you’ll let it all hang out in a way, and step happily into the spotlight. Your finances never seem steady and stable at the moment, which you can happily blame on Uranus passing through the sign after yours. Just try to always expect the unexpected and you will not go far wrong. But that means always keeping your options open and being ready for ups and downs.
