ARIES: If you can trust enough to let loved ones do what they want, they will more readily come back to you. The message being that clutching doesn’t ever work in the long run. You are likely to be warm and friendly to everyone you meet and maybe even lucky financially. Money could be coming in, but naturally going out rather fast as well. Just make sure you don’t overdo the indulgences, as you may eat too much or just idle to your heart’s content.
TAURUS: Try flashing a happy smile, even if you are gritting your teeth behind the scenes. You will get your own way faster by being charming than looking too stubborn or grumpy. Your feelings are running deeper than usual, but that should be your secret. If you have been backing away from a difficult conversation, now might just be your chance to build bridges and mend fences. You will manage to express what you feel without being aggressive or abrasive. Just keep smiling amiably.
GEMINI: It may that that you are feeling a little bit stuck where one relationship is concerned, or insecure. It’s just a passing cloud, so give yourself a shake and be more positive. Looking on the worst side of any situation will always throw up flaws and inadequacies. Maybe you would rather be out with friends, to be on the party trail. But if you are stuck at work, then everything should run more smoothly. Though you will head for the easy options.
CANCER: IF ITS YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be charming, sociable, confident, though also a touch tense where one close partnership is concerned. Try not to play games or be too roundabout. Be firm and flexible. Hard work means you’ll need to pay attention towards staying fit and healthy and finding out where your physical limits are. There will be sudden changes of direction so you’ll need to stay on your toes to grasp new opportunities. Home will be happier.
LEO: As long as you don’t play too many games at the moment you should manage to twist other people round your little finger. You will have a wicked smile on your face and several trumps hidden well out of sight. But you do have to tread warily otherwise close companions may end up feeling controlled or used which will only end up in rather sharp words. This is not a time for routine chores, boring people or anything that requires much self-discipline.
VIRGO: There is a need for change in one close partnership, and it could just be a minor adjustment in the way you relate to each other. If you can let go and allow changes to take place without fearing that you will be handing over control, then you will find your connection deepens. You certainly have no intention of doing anything strenuous. Your tendency will be to smooth over problems rather than face up to difficult people and get a grip on things.
LIBRA: Maybe you want to exert power over other people by sort of nudging them into doing something that they might not really want to do. You do have to be cautious, because if you could find close companions get a bit resentful. Try to be more laid-back. There will be moments during this time when you can put your feet up and feel happy-go-lucky. It may be that new love relationships are around, or that old relationships are just feeling better.
SCORPIO: You may have a slightly fated feeling about one relationship now. That often has a habit of fading after a couple of days and you wonder what on earth you were getting so excited about. So you may have to watch that your feelings are not leading you up the garden path. Your tastes will run to the flashy and the frivolous now so you will be spending rather gleefully on definitely non-essential items. Then later you may wonder why you bought them.
SAGITTARIUS: Certain close emotional relationships may become more intense. Sometimes that makes you feel more passionate, sometimes everything gets a bit gritty and you struggle to break free. Don’t over react to the odd stress and strain. Just rise graciously above it all. You may be tempted to eat and drink more than usual, since your willpower is low and the opportunity presents itself. Very agreeable influences will remove any feeling of being dutiful or conscientious. For a while at any rate.
CAPRICORN: The influences around now can be good for being charming in a business like way. You know what you want, even if you are not saying, and will use all your wiles to bring companions round to your way of thinking. If you can keep your ulterior motives out of sight then all will work well. Your lucky touch is working well, though you are also likely to be extravagant and indulgent. You will spend money as fast as you make it.
AQUARIUS: You want to be around the people who will boost your self-esteem and make you feel good. A priority is also to feel free to flit around as it suits you without feeling restricted. So you will have to watch that long-running relationships don’t go through a slightly tense phase, if you have a possessive partner. Friends are going to be a wonderful connection after hours, but you will also be socialising at work or just soothing and smoothing down difficult situations.
PISCES: If someone you fancy seems suddenly absolutely fascinating watch your step slightly. You could be infatuated. Maybe you know in your heart of hearts that they are not really very good for you but all the same you know they are wonderful. Enjoy the feeling but avoid the trap. You can expect to be feeling good, not getting too much work done. There will be moments when you feel at peace with the world and want to share your feelings with everyone around.
