|ARIES: When you get the chance to have a private moment in peace and quiet, you can think about personal matters which have been tucked into the background, maybe mull over the past. If you let things come to the surface in your mind you can really sort them out. Close relationships may be slightly more difficult now, as you can’t find it in yourself to compromise as you once did. Somehow, giving and taking feel as if they remove your right to be truly yourself.|
|TAURUS: 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 out in advance whether what you’re doing is necessary – sometimes you rush too fast and don’t stop to slow down and think things through. Unexpected events seemingly out of your control are bringing you valuable lessons. What you have to do is not feel resentful.|
|GEMINI: Your need for security may be pushing you one way, and your desire for extravagances pulling you the other. Blame it on the Moon which is fickle, and makes you point in opposite directions at once. 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. You enjoy being surrounded by eccentric or unconventional friends, though there are times when you feel infuriated because they prove unreliable or uncooperative.
IF IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be energetic, go-ahead, a time when you’ll push obstacles to one side and not put up with delays or nonsense. Though it’ll be wise not to jump to conclusions or be too hasty where cash is concerned. You’ll be working hard so need to boost your stamina however you can. Friends will be lively though not always there when you need them. Be as helpful as you can in your career and you’ll find you earn rewards. Home will be happier.
|CANCER: 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 quite as important as you’re making it out to be. You are finding it tricky to settle into a steady work rut, or indeed to follow anyone else’s instructions. You want do your own thing in an unusual setting that provides adventure and constant stimulation.|
|LEO: 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. You are independent and completely unswayed by traditional outlooks. You have your own slant on the truth, and will speak your mind no matter the consequences.|
|VIRGO: 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. Listen carefully, sift and sort out all the ideas you have been given, and when the moment is ready, you will know exactly what the options are. Your emotions are also on a roller coaster ride and you definitely want constant change in your intimate relationships. The ups and downs of your moods may confuse partners who had got used to the old ways.|
|LIBRA: You will be more emotional in public than usual, which lets other people see the more human side of you. You will attract more sympathy, and at the same time be more sensitive to what’s going on around at work. Stale partnerships need a blast of fresh air blown through them. If they can’t stand the draught then maybe they are not worth hanging onto. Don’t be afraid of what is changing now. It may be that old doors are closing or shaky relationships becoming more so.|
|SCORPIO: A more experimental approach is needed. This is not a time for team efforts or forcing yourself to be too co-operative. Maybe you never thought of yourself as a hippie or a New Ager, but you are finding more and more that alternative life styles and ways to make a living interest you. Settling into a secure, traditional working environment does not sit well with your restless spirit. You need a space where you have the freedom to work as you like without too much direct supervision.|
|SAGITTARIUS: Co-operation may not come easily to you at the moment, but there is a way of turning your insistence on going your own way to good effect. Your imagination is running along new lines so you can devise new creative ideas. Not being in step with the crowd can be turned to your advantage. Be sentimental but don’t hang on too tightly, or dig your heels in. You need to stand firm until you find the answers you are looking for, but then roll with the flow.|
|CAPRICORN: 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 you can sometimes lose courage. It’s important to aim yourself towards nice, happy, reassuring mates. Maybe you are feeling just a touch insecure as you sense that what you have hung onto as a mooring in the past is now disappearing. There may be changes at home or within the family which are causing you to question a good many of your old beliefs.|
|AQUARIUS: You have to put aside your own need for frivolity and indulgence to make sure everyone else is getting what they want. Polish your halo and console yourself with the thought that you will get your rewards in a couple of days. Trying to keep your wits together is never easy when Uranus is stirring up activity in your everyday routines. There will be a constant flow of information coming and going, a fair amount of dashing around and more encounters than usual.|
|PISCES: Try not to be too possessive. 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. You need a budget system that can cope with an uneven flow of money. Nothing seems to stay the same way for long. If you can seek out different ways of earning or handling the money you already possess, you will fare better.|
