|ARIES: Maybe flaws and inadequacies in one relationship either at home or at work are beginning to show up. This will not make you feel comfortable, but at least what you know cannot cause so many problems. Also do recognise that you may be taking too bleak a view of one situation or person. Lighten up a little. If you say too much when you are feeling critical, it will be more difficult to get back onto an even keel in the days ahead.|
|TAURUS: You want to dig down into the depths of every situation because you want to know exactly how it works. But that can make you see only the difficult side of life. Remember there’s a bright side as well. Don’t lose your sense of humour even if you are tackling rather serious matters. Nothing superficial is holding your attention at the moment. You have a clear, rather analytical approach which cuts through all the irrelevancies and cuts through to the heart of things.|
|GEMINI: You will tend to have rather intense encounters with other people for a few days. They may not be confrontations in the sense of a flare-up. But no one seems willing to co-operate as much as you had hoped. Achievements may be slow in coming, so don’t expect instant results. But they will come if you persist. You do have a capacity to handle joint finances well but must try to avoid committing yourself to situations which may make you feel trapped.|
|CANCER: There will be positive changes in your immediate environment, maybe at work or maybe with close partners. You can give yourself a quiet pat on the back then because it will be largely due to your efforts. Certain close partnerships may be going through a process of upheaval. There will be strains around, maybe even odd moments of bitterness. But if you can understand what is really going on then you will make great strides and forge stronger links in the days to come.
IF ITS YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be challenging, slow going at times, but one when perseverance will pay off. One close partner will be stubborn or determined to have the last word. Try not to let differences breed resentment. Play it cool and wait your moment. Money will flow into your but might slide through your fingers since you’ll spend happily. You’ll need to make an effort to waken your social life up since otherwise you’ll be working all the time.
|LEO: If there are sulks or broody silences around at home or at work, don’t give in to them. The silent treatment can be very effective but only if you allow it to continue. Bring out grievances into the open as firmly and diplomatically as you can manage. Then you’ll find everyone suddenly starts to look more upbeat again. At work you may be digging your heels in too hard. You could be right, but maybe have not found the best way of persuading workmates.|
|VIRGO: Turning your back on certain situations or burying your head in the sand will not work. You have to get yourself into reforming mood. Changes will not happen overnight, indeed they make take months rather than weeks, but if you apply yourself with persistence then you will be pleased at the outcome. You have certainly no intention of being ignored now. You want to be taken as a person of substance and given much more attention. Turn your growing creative talents to good use.|
|LIBRA: Everything goes from slow to slower, indeed at times you may feel stuck altogether. But the magic thing will be when you see that your efforts have not been in vain. You can achieve substantial goals but you have to give yourself time. Try not to be controlling in your emotional and domestic life. Maybe you are scared of the deep feelings which run under the surface. But it would be more productive to go inside yourself and explore these fears and anxieties.|
|SCORPIO: As long as you do not get discouraged or gloomy because it is all taking so long you will discover that you are gaining in wisdom. Out of your experiences other people besides yourself will gain because you’ll learn first hand about how to cope better. You have a real inclination towards investigating every situation you come across right down to its roots. You will get at facts which escape other more superficial minds. Though at times you can be too negative.|
|SAGITTARIUS: You’ll see the benefits of standing your ground in one situation. The evidence may not come through for a few days but you will be glad that you rose to the challenge and did not lose your cool. It may not feel very good just at the moment, but the better things in life always cost a little in terms of effort. You are asking yourself whether there are not things in life which have just as much if not more value as money.
|CAPRICORN: You’ve got to tackle everything with thoroughness now. It may be a slight problem that you focus in so narrowly on things that you can’t quite see the broad picture. You are a really steady rock for others to respect and appreciate now. Just try to open up on your own vulnerabilities and listen to feedback which is constructive. Life should be give and take. Don’t be scared that if you give others knowledge about yourself they will then be able to control you.|
|AQUARIUS: Out of your experiences at the moment which may be a little stressed, you’ll emerge as a stronger personality, with better relationships. Try to resolve any resentments you have with partners. Maybe you are hiding away from yourself and others your need for more influence. It will be difficult for you to open up discussions on certain topics, but it’s important that you try. Find someone you can really trust and start to discuss what you really would like to do with your life.|
|PISCES: Maybe you are feeling down because you think things aren’t going to hold together. Just remember you are almost certainly magnifying things out of all proportion. It will take perseverance and persistence to sort out the situation which is occupying most of your attention. But within a short while you will discover that you’re feeling much more solid. You have a real enthusiasm at the moment to be part of a group of like-minded friends, who are all pulling together in a cooperative venture.|
