|ARIES: If you want more prominence now, you are going to have to do things that draw other people’s attention to you. So do what suits the influential people at work or out in your community. Cater for their needs, not your own, and then you will get all the compliments you want. You are taking your responsibilities very seriously at the moment. Just don’t get too obsessed with thoroughness. Try not to make things more difficult for yourself than need be.|
|TAURUS: In a restless mood, you want to be anywhere other than where you are. But if you are feeling stuck, go talk to more adventurous people, even find some stretching book to read. You really can’t be bothered with practical routines. But you can be a real stickler for fairness and justice at the moment. It stems from your strong concerns about creating a better society, and ensuring that everyone is able to live decently. You’ll stand up for what you believe in.|
|GEMINI: Just briefly you suddenly lose all thought of being superficial or frivolous. You want to get down into the depths to investigate, to stand steady until you find the long-term kind of answers. It may be to do with financial or emotional matters, or just more fundamental questions you are asking of yourself. Develop a sense of humour and lighten up. You are seeing the flaws and the disasters and forgetting to see the benefits around you. Be a little more light-handed.|
|CANCER: In your closest relationships, both at work and at home, you may be clutching a little more than usual, hanging on to partners. Don’t get jealous and possessive if they aren’t exactly fitting in with what you want. Just move over and get in step with them. You want to be in charge even in your love life or your social life at the moment, which may push away precisely those you want to be close. Try to be less rigid or formal.
IF ITS YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be a time when your head tells you one thing and your heart another. Don’t dash into decisions or imagine it’s always a question of either this or that. Sometimes there’s a third way that allows you to have it all. One close partner will be possessive or stubborn so handle them carefully and go the long way round arguments. You’ll find money flows in faster though you’ll be spending as well. Be alert for new opportunities.
|LEO: You’re having to go out of your way to make sure that everyone is being well looked after. If you feel a bit emotionally squashed because of that, try and give yourself a few tiny treats throughout this time. You are taking family responsibilities seriously at the moment. But maybe you feel you are not getting enough nurturing yourself. You tend to putting up defensive barriers, which will protect you but it does cut you off from the warmth which you want.|
|VIRGO: You will be promoting yourself in a very strong way, looking for the lime-light. You’ll be flirting, laughing, singing and dancing. There will be more emotional depth in relationships with loved ones, whether it’s children, adults or indeed social companions. You are priding yourself at the moment about seeing life as it is. But remember that being realistic is not always about looking for the flaws and inadequacies. Look for on the sunny side up as well. There are highly positive things around.|
|LIBRA: Even if you are on your own for a little while, it won’t actually bother you very much because the Moon’s position now is a hint to cool down, calm down and get away from hassle, hustle and aggravation. You don’t want to be overwhelmed by the things of the outside world. You know you have to be sensible about cash now. But maybe you also need to find trust in the bounty of the universe to let go control. Money needs to flow.|
|SCORPIO: You’ll find at points that the words spill out all over the place and other people may get a bit avalanched, flooded by what you say and miss out on the sense. So once in a while you have to stand back and try to come to a few conclusions before you leap back out again. Then you’ll be balanced in your judgement, detached in manner, and just what is needed to bring order out of one slightly chaotic situation. Don’t be too rigid.|
|SAGITTARIUS: Sort out your priorities and decide what really is of value to you. You might be tempted to think that money is the only thing that matters. But there are other things, which hold every bit as much interest for you, and can lift your spirits when you are feeling low. Do not fall into the glooms of self doubt now. You will not lose anything or anyone who is necessary to your future happiness or security. So don’t be afraid to let go.
|CAPRICORN: In a restless mood, you’ll be ebbing and flowing like the tide, which is why you need really solid, motherly mates around to be protective, nurturing and a little bit more practical perhaps than you feel. You’ll be unduly sensitive to the undercurrents in the emotional atmosphere which does make you more sympathetic but it can also make you jangled or just confused at times. Maybe you need to draw closer to comforting friends and pool your energy and enthusiasm in some constructive way.|
|AQUARIUS: TNow you may feel a little bit discouraged or low in self-esteem, but there’s really no need for it. Don’t assume that being left to your own devices is a bad thing, or a sign that you are unlovable. Treat it as a blessing in disguise, to give yourself – emotionally, at any rate – a little bit of space. Shortcuts will not work for you now. You have learned that recently through hard experience. Your success when it comes will be built on solid preparations. .|
|PISCES: It’s important to get the right kind of emotional contact with friends now, partly for affectionate support, and partly because you want to bounce ideas off them for the future. This is your time to set the agenda for the time ahead and whoever is around can help you sort out your options. You will gain a great deal of strength and encouragement from your work colleagues as well. You are slowly moving towards a peak of success in your li|
