ARIES: You may be saying things to others in a way that they don’t entirely understand. You don’t stop, stand back and come to any conclusions or be reflective. The words all just flow out like a flood. Whereas if you could be a bit more sensible about one or two things, it really would help enormously. Travel will tend to be for work more than pleasure for a while. Or it turns out to be difficult, delayed or involve additional work.
TAURUS: Money and security are the main things on your mind for a brief spell. It’s well worth your while pushing yourself into doing boring things like the paperwork. Once you have that organised, not only will you feel better, you’ll be able to spend with a clear conscience. Partners may be less generous than usual, or even a slight financial burden on you at the moment, so you need to take care that you do not carry too many responsibilities for them.
GEMINI: Don’t get yourself worked up about things that are not as important as you’re making them out to be. Give yourself some space to wind down and be a bit more at peace if you possibly can. What you have to watch is a tendency to be rather stiff, or too reserved, or even critical in close partnerships at the moment. This works well in work setting where you take your responsibilities very seriously but can have a dampening effect on passion and tenderness.
CANCER: IF IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be enthusiastic at an everyday level and you’ll be pleased at how well you’re communicating and how tolerant you have become. You’ll begin to see that what was holding you back was too narrow an outlook. New opportunities will turn up so you’ll need to be ready to grasp them. One close partner will be intense and rather stubborn. Try not to be confrontational. From September you’ll relax more happily at home.
LEO: You may be dashing around 16 different people, trying to sort out what they think about this or that, and getting confused as a result. But at the end of it all you will be able to come to your own judgements, and you’ll know where to commit your energy. You are taking a rather dignified approach to your social life these days. You will be steady and reliable rather than wild or adventurous. Don’t stifle the spontaneous expression of your feelings too much.
VIRGO: Clearly you feel more protective of those around at work or out in the community. The more you give, the more everyone will think you are absolutely marvellous. Letting your hair down for sheer enjoyment does not seem to happen as often at the moment as it once did. You somehow feel you will not be accepted unless you achieve so you are throwing all your energy into doing rather than being. The upside is you do achieve, the downside is you get gloomy.
LIBRA: It’s a very enthusiastic day, when you will want to communicate on a much broader scale. There may be messages coming in from abroad or from a distance away. You need an escape route from dreary mates or restrictive chores. You want pals as well as lovers now, nothing too intense or claustrophobic will do. Later you will be concentrating on what is essential and practical, and have no intention of wasting words. What you say will be very much to the point.
SCORPIO: Your emotional responses will be more intense for a couple of days. Important, influential or strong minded people will be drawn into your orbit, but you need to tread softly, and not say everything you feel or think. You’ll be learning to be better disciplined, where money and possessions are concerned. You do have a feeling that you do not have enough or what you have may be at risk. Caution may be a good thing but don’t always look on the gloomy side.
SAGITTARIUS: Try not to be jealous or get yourself unsettled if things aren’t going precisely as you want. You will tend to react over-quickly to things, hearing slights where none exist. Balance is what you are aiming for, though you may be swinging to extremes in the effort to find it. Having a close partner is vital to your confidence now. You do not always get on well at the moment in team situations or under authority figures. Try to be more calm and controlled.
CAPRICORN: Other people may be demanding quite a lot of you, so watch you don’t end up feeling resentful. Having to fit in all the time with other people’s plans, whims, suggestions and orders can be a bit of a bore. Do what makes you feel virtuous, but don’t let other people push you too much. You may be imagining all sorts of horrors that are never actually going to happen. What you need is to get better organised and hang onto common sense.
AQUARIUS: You want to be flamboyant and exuberant, to be in the spotlight, basking in the limelight. So go flirt, have fun, play games with loved ones, or social buddies. Forget routine chores and duck out if you feel an order coming your way. Hard work will make your dreams and ideals come true though sometimes at the moment you despair about the time it is all taking. Just trust that a sensible game plan will help you get to where you want to be.
PISCES: This is a good time to find some space to be self-protective and retreat into a private place, preferably at home. Even if you’re at work, you need some kind of protective niche where you’re pushing away awkward people, hassles and hustle. Don’t get too critical, even if you feel landed with too many chores. You are expecting everyone to be as well organised and responsible as you are. But they may just be in a different time of their life.
