|ARIES: If you are at a loose end at the moment, then you can apply yourself to a general clear out. Pluto is good at removing anything that is outworn, useless and inessential from your life. Just don’t get too intense or confrontational. This is not the time to issue ultimatums especially to close friends or family members. You are making it your business to know everything about everybody at the moment, since you want to have all the necessary facts at your disposal.|
|TAURUS: Unexpected events at home and elsewhere will keep you on your toes and rather wound up. You will get edgy if anyone tries to control you, order you around or becomes jealous. You want the freedom to express who you are and be more spontaneous. Your thinking and speaking is all directed at the moment to whatever has a practical or financial purpose, which is making you thoughtful. Others may carp about your slowness but you know it is vital to get everything right.|
|GEMINI: A little indulgent at the moment, you are likely to over eat and expand as a result. Your boredom threshold is low, and you may jump into action, just to avoid the tedious process of making considered decisions which take account of all the facts. You would rather speak than listen at the moment. What you say may not be too subtle. But your plus side is you have no devious streak, and can be relied on for straight answers to direct questions.
IF ITS YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be chatty, pro-active, assertive and enthusiastic. You’ll be open minded and tolerant, realising you’ve had too narrow a focus before so will be opening your eyes to opportunities all around. Home will be happier and family relationships more relaxed within weeks. Though one close relationship will be rather more distanced than usual. Just stay loyal and you’ll find the bond strengthens. Only shaky partnerships will crack.
|CANCER: You will try to keep companions at arms length, since you are playing your cards close to your chest, and don’t want to be manipulated. But in turn you may come across as slightly controlling. You may be feeling too sensitive on one score and interpret as criticisms things that others say which were never meant to hurt. Don’t over react until you have checked out what was intended. Your concentration for detailed or specialised chores is not great at the moment.
|LEO: Let your original ideas have more space now, and express your creativity. You do want elbow room in relationships, so give jealous or possessive mates a wide berth. You may be highly strung so do not over pack your schedule. Find winding down time. You have a sharp, fast moving mind now with Mercury in the inventive area of your chart. Remember to write things down since you can be absent-minded just now, forgetting your brilliant inspirations as soon as you have them.|
|VIRGO: You will be restless, not in a mood for settling down and attending to routine chores. Indeed it may be a small roller coaster ride at points. You will want to know the common sense reasons for doing everything though, and will get irritated by work mates who rattle on about grand ideas. Just try to let a little of your own creative imagination get to work. If your feet are too firmly on the ground, you will not get very far.|
|LIBRA: Present influences will put you in an amiable humour. You will want to smooth down rough edges, and make everything around as pleasant and comfortable as possible. You will notice a ray of sunshine around home and in your emotional relationships to keep you glowing. You see no reason to pull your verbal punches now, so mates may need a thick skin, not because you’re malicious, but because you treasure the truth. You’ll have strong hunches which will probably turn out to be accurate.|
|SCORPIO: You will tend to get pulled into tricky situations, and end up feeling a touch frustrated or blocked. But it won’t last long. You are fairly intense at the moment, maybe more stubborn than usual in discussions. But you need to confront those who share joint responsibilities with you, to sort out better agreements. If you cannot say precisely what you feel or think now you would rather stay silent. So companions may find you just a touch frustrating. Try to compromise.|
|SAGITTARIUS: Don’t get yourself in a stew about a situation that really could not matter less. Try to shrug off suspicions, doubts and keep sharp comments to yourself. Your harmonious way of expressing yourself and desire to keep the peace is doing wonders for your popularity. You may lose the opportunity to act or make a decision by the time you have made up your mind about one situation. Considering carefully is a good idea, but do not stretch it out too far.|
|CAPRICORN: Let a blast of fresh air blow through, since it will get rid of cobwebs. The Moon is close to Uranus so your moods will be erratic and unpredictable just briefly, and you will not sit still for long. You will be reorganising at home or stirring up a bit of action elsewhere. You are appreciating differences and distinctions, which others regard as too trivial to bother about. But it does mean you will spot what they overlook, and that can be highly useful.|
|AQUARIUS: You will be thoroughly and gloriously lazy but it might be an idea in the peaceful moments to mull over old memories. You can be more settled if you have thought things through more carefully. Just watch you are not too sugary sweet and sentimental. You could be untidy and rather careless. You may be ignoring certain details in your determination to see the broad sweep at the moment. But because of your carefulness and long term vision, you can plan well.|
|PISCES: Try to look on the bright side of things. Pluto can make you see the difficulties rather than boosting your optimism. You will cope well with situations which are out of the ordinary but you may make normal situations more difficult than they need to be. Watch you are not getting too close to subjects to be able to see them clearly. You may be taking too narrow a view of one situation, selecting some facts and ignoring others for no good reason.|
