|ARIES: You are wary of changing, yet clearly you need to try. You are getting more irked at the moment about lazy, sloppy or unmotivated mates. You can be quite a hard taskmaster if you have authority over others, since you don’t understand why everyone does not share your commitment to getting things done. You are not about to let your feelings get in the way of your thinking at the moment since you want to be clear, but it does sometimes mean you sound cool or too detached.|
|TAURUS: You are exceptionally loyal where it matters at the moment, ready to stick it out through thick and thin for the sake of the people in your life who really matter. Maybe you feel there is a barrier between yourself and certain close companions, since Saturn is putting a wet blanket on feelings, but Saturn also brings common sense and endurance to partnerships. Your concentration is good once you settle down to tasks. More stubborn than usual, you are digging your heels in quite hard.|
|GEMINI: You are finding it easier to be patient, meticulous about detail. Just don’t get obsessed with getting jobs done perfectly, and constantly correcting for not speaking correctly. Be tolerant. Spouting off opinions in all directions, you will be jumping onto the next point before companions have had a chance to absorb the main point. You could also be point scoring or trying to have the last word, which may not always go down too well.
IF IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be hard working, restless, highly energetic and not always patient. You won’t take no for an answer or put up with delays and mistakes. Just try not to be too impulsive especially where cash or certain projects are concerned. Pushing too hard too fast won’t bring the right results. Relationships at home with the family will be happier and you’ll be more content within yourself from September onwards. You’ll relax and enjoy.
|CANCER: Children or loved ones maybe landing heavier responsibilities on you than usual. In response you may find yourself constantly setting rules and regulations for them, and becoming too strict. Let your inner child out to play and be less rigid.Your mind is wandering around restlessly, and maybe you are too susceptible to persuasion by others. You are picking up subtle clues from others, acting like a sponge, soaking in atmosphere, and this can make you biased without realising it.|
|LEO: With Saturn back at the base of your chart for a month or so you may be slightly wary of your emotions, feeling that what is around you is a little chilly or ungiving. Maybe you are having to put work before pleasure, duty before indulgence. Try to lighten up more often. Your concentration is wandering a little at the moment, and you are getting very bored with having to listen to feedback. You may say things that startle other people, just to amuse yourself.|
|VIRGO: Because you are very determined and more deliberate than usual when it comes to mental work, you are understanding serious subjects which were once a mystery to you. You are double-checking, so you are likely to be more accurate than chatterboxes. 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.|
|LIBRA: Learning the lessons of generosity may come hard at the moment but they will pay off. You may be slightly shorter of money than you might like,but you should not withhold your feelings. You don’t want to be bothered by tiny details at the moment since you want to see the broad picture. Just watch you are not being impractical or unrealistic. Mercury nearing your midheaven gives you stronger opinions than usual. You may well be right but sounding self-righteous can be a danger.|
|SCORPIO: You will have a positively military discipline about getting things done. You have learned recently to be more self-sufficient, but don’t let that cut you off from companions especially those who are struggling. Maybe you do sometimes express yourself too forcibly. You are feeling strongly about certain situations, and will not easily change your mind. Your comments will be perceptive, though not always charitable since you are more intense than usual. You stand up for yourself in discussions, but may be inclined to speak sharply when provoked.|
|SAGITTARIUS: Coming to grips with your self-doubts, which all of us have but may be more evident now with Saturn reversing back through the sign before yours, is vital for your sense of well-being and enjoyment. You can weigh friends down with your emotional problems. You will go well out of your way to avoid boors, bores and mates who get on your nerves at the moment. You want interesting conversations with people who are on your wavelength.|
|CAPRICORN: Sometimes you don’t trust everyone to pull together in team situations. This tends to make you seem slightly stiff, always insisting on rules and regulations, rather than letting everyone pitch in as they probably will in their own way at their own pace. Your helpful suggestions at work are going down well now except when you tramp on other people’s corns as you point out their flaws. Try a little charm, and a few compliments before you wade in to criticise.|
|AQUARIUS: Workmates may find you a bit of a control freak and over rigid in your attitudes. You are insisting on sticking to the straight and narrow but with good reason. You know good organisation, attention to detail and determination will pay off. There is plenty of fun and laughter around you now. You appreciate your own ideas, and like listeners to be appreciative as well. Just don’t exaggerate too much to make an effect, or embroider the facts to make a good story.|
|PISCES: You will be working extra hard now to improve your understanding of the world. You are perhaps also struggling to find new spiritual beliefs in life, since your old outlook does not hold the same appeal any more. You may be taking other people’s comments too personally, fearing slights where none were intended. You are more sensitive and moody than usual, so you will want to retreat into your shell if arguments flare up where you feel your views are being personally attacked.|
