|ARIES: You’re doing everything you can to be realistic in a positive way, not wasting anything, not throwing money around, being conscious of the limitations of life and that is always the important thing. Once you get down to the bottom line and you accept the way life is, you can begin to work with it and make it happen. You may have to be supportive than usual, financially and emotionally, throwing more into the kitty, but you are building more resilience and stronger inner resources.|
|TAURUS: You’ll plan and organise particularly well and you want to work thoroughly and with an eye to detail. For that reason you’ll find that you don’t have to go and double-check everything tomorrow or the day after and redo things. The better relationships in your life will weather the storms to emerge stronger and longer lasting. Saturn around now may cut down on warmth, and give rise to more carping and nit picking, or land you with heavy responsibilities, but it makes good bonds more long lasting.|
|GEMINI: You’re working in a way that is going to gain the approval of serious people. You’re not racing around in a rackety fashion, you’re not gambling, taking risks or being too boisterous or too exuberant. You’re being, if anything, a little bit understated. If you do overwork to excess at the moment, you will find your body complaining. Whenever you feel under par you must ask yourself where you have not been paying proper attention to your physical needs.
|CANCER: You may feel a little bit depressed energy-wise, but because the influences today are so nice, that isn’t going to be any kind of problem. It’s just not a day to relax and have a good time. You’re going to work, and that really is what the energies want you to do most of all. Perhaps you need to learn about self-control and setting limits in romance. It is not a time for feeling too spontaneous, playful or expressing your feelings wholeheartedly. Be firm, be practical and be straight.
IF IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be sensible, practical and dynamic. You’ll be keen to get new projects cracking along and won’t put up with any delays or obstacles. One close partner won’t always be on your wavelength. Try to avoid confrontations since they won’t bring results. Be strategic and walk the long way round. Your luck with money will continue though you’ll be over spending so may not have much surplus. Your positive attitude will make you popular at work.
|LEO: Today won’t be about spending money or being frivolous or indulgent: it’s about being absolutely solid and down-to-earth and doing all the incredibly hard-working kind of things. Whether it’s using your mind or just using some practical or physical techniques, you’ll be very pleased by the results. You may be thinking of moving home or having work done on the one you live in. This is a parallel for an inner re-organisation. Life may not be rapturous and ecstatic but you are building more solid foundations for the future.|
|VIRGO: Relationships with authority figures – bosses, teachers, parents, those kind of people – will be good. They respect the way you’re handling yourself and you clearly have good, solid judgment, partly because you’re not going wildly into things that you haven’t really thought through. Do not become discouraged if you feel others are disagreeing with you or excluding you from conversations. Just force yourself to find the courage to ask what has gone wrong and to try to put it right.|
|LIBRA: Today is particularly good for work situations. You’re structured, you’re self-disciplined, you’ve got an eye to the future: you can see what your goals ought to be, and you can see very clearly how, by putting one foot in front of the other, you can get to where you want to be. Within a few months, you will be in a much more solid, secure position in life and in the long term will come to be grateful for the lessons you have been forced to learn.|
|SCORPIO: It’s a day when you’re going to get a lot of satisfaction out of just doing the chores, getting all sorts of things done that haven’t been done before. So you are being exceedingly reasonable and responsible. Sometimes with Saturn around you can be a little bit discouraged or gloomy; it sometimes makes you see the flaws and cracks and inadequacies in life. This is no time to be living on other people’s terms. You must prune everything out of your life that is inessential or outmoded.|
|SAGITTARIUS: The main thing to remember is that this is a time of major change in your life through confrontation and conflict. The more you face and the harder you struggle, the greater your rewards will be on the far end. You are keen to prove just how resourceful you can be in earning more, re-organising what you possess, and in negotiating skilfully. But, as always, you have to watch a tendency to become too controlling around money, or indeed spending compulsively.|
|CAPRICORN: You may feel short of money or there’s too much work and not enough time for pleasure. If you knuckle down and just be a little bit more self-disciplined and get things done, then you’ll find at the end of it all that you are remarkably pleased that you did. The people you chose as friends may be older or more career oriented. At times, you will not be happy with their rather critical advice but it is solidly based and well meant.|
|AQUARIUS: You may end up feel-ing that life is all about duty and responsibility. However, if you can just make up your mind to that for a couple of days, you’ll get through a good many chores and by the end of it feel you’ve achieved more than you might have expected. Maybe you need to cut your losses and concentrate on your successes. Don’t trail on with what isn’t working well. You have to get down to the bottom line and start building.|
|PISCES: You’re not going to slither round the edges of things or give up and expect someone else to do all the hard chores: you’re going to be very pleased to be able to do it all yourself, because today’s influences make you just aware of the positive benefits of what is around you. You’ll be taking your beliefs and opinions very seriously. You want to be more knowledgeable, so are perhaps reading a good deal and trying to understand about different countries and cultures.|
