|ARIES: Your ability to sparkle in the spotlight is certainly attracting a stream of compliments, if not new admirers. You will be flirting, having fun, and trying to duck out of boring chores as much as possible. Given to theatrical gestures just to prove your points you will be causing the odd stir. You will want to show yourself in a positive way, coming across as protective and nurturing. If you take care of others, then they are much more likely to respond in like manner.|
|TAURUS: Adding elegant touches to your intimate surroundings at home is a top priority. Having beauty around will make you feel happier. Get out the colour charts, buy a few more pot plants and see what you can do. Push away the people who are awkward, back off from circumstances that are tricky and find a little niche in the office or at home, when you can be in charge of all your survey. You want to be wrapped up in cotton wool, giving yourself the goodies of life.|
|GEMINI: Thoughtful gestures from everyday companions are making you feel admired and appreciated. You are beginning to discover you do not have to move far from your normal routines to find affection. It may not be grand passion but it is rather pleasant. Scattering yourself too widely, getting a bit frantic and frazzled is all too likely but not very helpful. If you can detach your feelings from your thinking, you will find it easier to focus and concentrate.
IF IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be full of charming compliments, thoughtful gestures and votes of appreciation from everyday mates at work and elsewhere. Your persuasive way with words will make you popular and open up new opportunities for you. It’ll still be exceptionally hard working so you’ll need to pay attention to keeping fit. Future plans will chop and change and at times you may feel held back by old commitments. Home will be happier.
|CANCER: You have a taste what is fine and elegant. If your extravagance outruns your budget, turn your creative skills to earning more money. Going to one extreme or the other where cash is concerned is not helpful. If you save to the extent that you’re not able to give yourself the odd present or treat then you’ll feel deprived, but if you pleasure your senses and give yourself the goodies of life without limits then you will get the budget unbalanced. Moderation is the answer.|
|LEO: Admirers will not be in short supply. You will be wearing your heart on your sleeve, expressing your feelings of affection rather directly, and generally getting what you want. You will be a little bit fidgety and edgy just over the next couple of days with the Moon in your own sign. More even than usual you will want to be loved, nurtured and protected. Really, what is important is to have solid, reassuring, anchoring kind of mates around.|
|VIRGO: Love may not come as easily, partly because you are holding back, maybe over sensitive to rejection. Don’t let opportunities for romance slide by because you cannot force yourself to speak out about what you need or whom you fancy. You will be picking up subtle clues and hints of the unspoken needs of close companions. This can make you caring, but will have to watch you’re not pulled into carrying everyone else’s problems.|
|LIBRA: You will be spreading your social favours in all directions, not tying yourself down at any point. Safety in numbers will be your motto. Don’t get jealous or a little bit down if a friend pays more attention to someone else, because it will pass by very quickly. The Moon around now is rather fickle, so things tend to be good one moment and not so good the next, and then back to being good again. Just let it all ebb and flow.|
|SCORPIO: If you have creative talents you should be making the effort to get them out on display to best advantage. You can turn your dreams into reality but you will have to discipline yourself. You will be sensitive, very responsive to the mood around you at work, and therefore very good at handling group situations. You have incentive and ambition, but you’re putting it across in a very nice, protective kind of way for other people.|
|SAGITTARIUS: Socially charming and more light hearted than of late, you want to mix with a much wider range of people, and perhaps to explore new leisure activities. You want to be out of your normal rut to find stimulation with companions who will stretch your mind as well as keep you entertained. Try to make sure you sort out more entertaining and intriguing things to do, because you want to be mentally stretched. You want to meet new friends, to hear about different backgrounds, different countries.|
|CAPRICORN: There is nothing light hearted about your romantic life at the moment. You want more drama than usual – a grand passion – or paradoxically you could shut off your emotional needs altogether. Maybe you are wary that if you open up to what you really want it could bring uncomfortable feelings to the surface. It may be that you have to come to new arrangements, new compromises, new agreements with very close partners, maybe over joint finances or over your intimate emotional life.|
|AQUARIUS: Your heart is definitely in the right place, so you will be ironing out difficulties, soothing ruffled feathers and generally putting your best diplomatic foot forward. If you are trying to sell or recommend anything at the moment charm will be your greatest asset. Whether at home or at work, you want the solid, reassuring support of people who can be there for you. Give a wide berth to grumblers, gripes and general bores. Look for supportive buddies, the ones whom you trust.|
|PISCES: Maybe you are being just a touch too analytical about your feelings, standing back to dissect them, rather than plunging into emotional situations around you. If you can let go, you’ll find deeper connections and more fulfilling relationships. It’s important that you don’t let other people demand too much of you. If you are giving out a great deal, it’s a bright idea to look at your body, see what you need to do to give it a bit of a boost.|
