|ARIES: Your love life may be suffering at an intimate level because you are wary of getting into the depths of your feelings. But you are beginning to understand what’s holding you back from real relating. That is the first step to more intimacy in future. You’re likely to be a little bit too close to whatever it is you’re talking about. Your heart is certainly in the right place, but your brain may be in the wrong gear. Pause for thought every so often.|
|TAURUS: Emotional tensions are coming out into the open which is probably not a bad thing. What you really want now are treats, luxuries, and presents. You will be very attached to the good things. It can make you a touch possessive, so you have to look more laid back than you will feel. You may make hasty buys. Little whims send you off in directions that are not always terribly wise. So it’s important to be clear about what you are doing.|
|GEMINI: You are amazed at how conscientious you have become recently, and much better with detail. Friends are finding you quite the perfectionist. You are really becoming good at specialist work, which is practical and methodical. You need to belong, to be loved, cuddled and cosseted so look for reassuring companions who’ll give you a little more help and support than usual and be an anchor for you. Try to avoid overeating, because you will pamper yourself a bit, and avoid overreacting to certain situations.
IF ITS YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be hard working and exuberant. You’ll need to watch not to let your enthusiasm run riot and over commit yourself. Looking after health and stamina will be important. But for all that you’re likely to be powering head and not putting up with delays or nonsense. New opportunities will turn up if you keep your eyes open. Old commitments may weigh heavily at times but they will have to be honoured for a while yet. You’ll be more content within yourself and at home from September onwards.
|CANCER: You may be finding it difficult to really let rip at the moment. You are tending to be cautious and restrained in games and leisure activities. Maybe you sense that companions are preoccupied. They’re all tied up in what they’re doing, and you want to just disappear into your own space to think things through. You will feel like pulling back from too much company or rushing around. Emotionally you want to protect yourself, to get a chance to mull over highly personal matters.|
|LEO: Duty is coming before pleasure and indulgence. Indeed at times you feel your home life is harder work than work. But you do want a more organised set up. Don’t feel gloomy. It will pass by so quickly that it’s not worth paying much attention to. Nothing ever stands still for long. Definitely a time to be surrounded by team mates and companions, the more the merrier as far as you’re concerned. If you’re part of group energy then you get oodles of support.|
|VIRGO: You may feel there is a barrier to be overcome when talking to workmates, neighbours, or brothers and sisters. Reading the fine print or getting the filing in order is coming more easily to you now with Saturn around. You like everything in the right place. You want to find out about new subjects, search out answers and explore possibilities. You want to be out in the community being noticed. It’s very important to you that others appreciate and admire what you’re doing.|
|LIBRA: Others may call you miserly, but you know that saving makes survival sense. So you will be limiting your purchases to what is essential and has value. You will not settle easily to boring chores or routines. You’ve got a great urge to get away from ruts and routines, from tedious chores, boring people and fly a little bit higher. You want to broaden your horizons, however you can. Travel would suit you best but there are other ways to keep your interest engaged.|
|SCORPIO: Life will reward you the harder you try though you must find time for relaxation as well as serious endeavours. Otherwise you could end up feeling a loner, having to make your way in the world unaided. You will be secretive, playing your cards close to your chest. It’s emo-tionally more intense than usual, so watch you don’t magnify certain situations or comments into something bigger than they are. You should be able to manoeuvre your own way through strategy and sheer persistence.|
|SAGITTARIUS: You may hold back now from really examining what is going on inside you or indeed exploring your past, since you are wary of finding out what lies below the surface. The strange thing is though that you would gain inner strength if you did. Your creative talents will require an effort to get them mobilised. You will want another half in whatever you are doing, at home or at work. It is very much a togetherness kind of feeling right now.|
|CAPRICORN: There is a reserve or a barrier, which you find it difficult to break down on first meeting, though once you have been around a while people do recognise your good qualities, and your loyalty. Your emotions are rather tied up with your working situation, and indeed with your health just for a couple of days. If you’re feeling jittered and jangled emotionally, you have to watch that your body doesn’t sag a bit. Make sure you’re putting energy into eating the right food.|
|AQUARIUS: For some time ahead your work ambitions are the most important thing in your life. Status and respectability are vital to your self esteem now so you will redouble your efforts to gain the praise of those whose judgement you really trust. Though it may be difficult to conceal your feelings from others. There’s a spontaneous, exuberant, boisterous mood in the air as far as you are concerned. So you’ll let it all hang out in a way, and step happily into the spotlight.|
|PISCES: You are taking pride in your sharp mind, and getting resentful if you aren’t given the recognition that you feel your ideas or your work deserves. Just keep looking at the broad picture and developing tolerance, hope and a sense of humour. This is quite a good time to retreat off to have a little bit of peace and quiet. You want privacy, to get away from the outside world. Self-protective and sensitive, you want to cling on to loved ones or familiar surroundings.|
