|ARIES: Mates secretly admire your courage for being so outspoken, though at times they wonder about your lack of humility. Still nothing ventured, nothing gained as far as you are concerned at the moment. Your intuition will be working well, so you can look ahead and know a little of what is coming ahead. Mixing with fun social mates will put you in brighter spirits. A real attack of wandering feet will make it tricky to settle down to anything requiring concentration.|
|TAURUS: More emotional than usual, you may be over-sensitive to the slightest whiff of criticism. Try not to sound too defensive, when most often it will not be necessary. A hidden Moon may be making you a little bit possessive about material things or about things from the past. Be sentimental but don’t hang on too tightly, or dig your heels in too much. You do need certainly to stand firm until you find the answers you are looking for, but then roll with the flow.|
|GEMINI: You may be coming across as rather critical. Try to add tact to honesty, and make it obvious to mates that you don’t mean to cause harm. Don’t go leaping into a situation too emotionally and then find you don’t really want to see it through to the end, because with the Moon across the zodiac from your sign you can sometimes lose courage about things. It’s a fragile kind of energy, so it will be important to aim yourself towards nice, happy, reassuring mates.|
|CANCER: Maybe you are slower than usual to make up your mind, but once you get on track nothing will budge you. Being of service to others will give you reassurance and your rewards will come when more support is on offer. It’s a self-sacrificing kind of day and you have to put aside your need for frivolity and indulgence to ensure everyone else is getting what they want. Polish your halo and console yourself with the thought you will get your rewards in a couple of days.|
|LEO: You’ll be quick witted at the moment and at times rather sharp tongued, so you will need to pause to think before you speak. Mates could be startled by your direct comments. Your emotions will be more fickle than usual. The Moon makes you impressionable, at times dependent and sentimental. Maybe you do feel clutching and clinging a little more than usual, but it won’t be wise. Have your entertainment and enjoyment without pinning close mates down, otherwise they may want to skip off elsewhere.
IF IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be confident, enthusiastic, chatty and fairly extravagant. You’ll be tempted by irresistible treats no matter what they cost. You’ll be busy reorganising at home or sorting out family tensions. At times you will regret not having enough space to relax and enjoy yourself socially as you once did, but your positive approach will bring you results and popularity. Just don’t over commit yourself since your energy won’t be limitless.
|VIRGO: You have a real understanding of other people’s suffering at the moment, which gives you added sympathy and will make you a supportive listener. You don’t feel you have to fight to get attention for yourself. You know your turn will come.When you get the chance to have a private moment in peace and quiet, you can think about personal matters that have been tucked into the background. If you let things come to the surface in your mind, you can really sort them out.|
|LIBRA: You’ll be open to new ideas, especially those likely to upset others, because you have a slightly rebellious streak about you. You have the courage of your convictions and will not be swayed by criticism. If you can speak to companions in a cooler, more rational way, they’re likely to connect a little bit better, but you will be whizzing around at high speed here and there, doing all sorts of things in a very lively way. Check in advance whether what you’re doing is necessary.|
|SCORPIO: You’ll be practical, methodical, ambitious, serious and focussing on what will be to your advantage at work. You’ll have no time for vague discussions that don’t go anywhere. Your need for security may be pushing you one way, and your desire for extravagance pulling you the other. Blame it on the Moon, which is fickle. It makes you want to be solidly protected, but it also tempts you to feed your body things that feel, smell and taste good, and they never come cheap.
|SAGITTARIUS: You are rather lofty in your interests, and you definitely want more mental stimulation. You are coming across as fair-minded, tolerant and enthusiastic, so you should be able to find stimulating companions to share your views. Try to put yourself into other people’s shoes when you can. That way you know what you want and what they want as well. There could be a point where you get yourself all stewed up about something that isn’t as important as you’re making it out to be.
|CAPRICORN: Everyone has to be clear what the agreements are. Maybe you will feel a little lonely or shy, hiding your feelings away, but this is only a two day wonder so is nothing to worry about. Just enjoy your own company. You won’t feel like socialising, just temporarily, but there are other activities which attract. Anything mystical or spiritual will hold your attention since you are tuned into deeper levels of awareness. You will also very helpful and compassionate as far as other people are concerned.|
|AQUARIUS: In demand at the moment for your bright ideas, witty way with words, and diplomatic knack of putting others at ease, you are guaranteed a positive response almost everywhere you go. It’s not a good idea to make up your mind instantly about one plan until you’ve had a chance to discuss it with everyone around. Too much advice can make you bewildered and a bit confused, but not enough input and you make the wrong decisions. Just listen carefully.|
|PISCES: Companions may be quailing a little when you come around at the moment since you are so observant. Try to let them know your intentions are good hearted behind your clinical approach. You will look to your work situation to give you strength and encouragement more so than home for these couple of days. You will be more emotional in public than usual, which may feel strange, but it lets other people see the more human side of you, so you will attract more sympathy.|
