ARIES: If you are getting slightly bored meeting the same companions all the time, then you clearly need to reach out for more adventurous mates. Allow your imagination to soar and. Nothing ventured, nothing gained. Loved ones may be flying along on the cloud tops but you’ll know it is much more sensible to look in advance at the downside of plans, because you know from past experience that leaping into things thoughtlessly doesn’t work out well. Just don’t be overly-negative with yourself or over-critical with them.
TAURUS: Not just literally, but emotionally as well, you feel the urge to get rid of some old baggage. But remember if you are too impulsive, you may want to backtrack in a few days’ time. Moderation in all things is always a good motto. It will take an effort but if you can keep your feet on the floor with loved ones, be sensible and practical then in a couple of days’ time you can leap out and be outrageously irresponsible again.
GEMINI: IF IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be a time to balance opposing needs and desires. Do you want to be independent or co-operate? Should you follow your head or your heart. Don’t leap to hasty decisions about one close relationship. Be patient and the answers will come. You’ll be happy at home, more contented within yourself. Though adventurous friends will be around, opening your eyes to new possibilities. You’ll be in social demand after August with your morale high.
CANCER: You may be seduced by the thought that doing less would make you feel better, but you know if you exert yourself you will feel more virtuous and it will probably bring you more energy. You may find there’s someone around now who could be helping or teaching you in a rather straightforward way. They’re trying to put across things which you need to know. Maybe at times they’ll be so realistic it sounds rather dreary. But listen all the same.
LEO: In the rush and scramble of coping with everyday matters and an active social life, you may lose track of what you want for yourself. Allowing that vital inner spark to shine out is more important than fitting in with everyone else’s expectations at least for a day. Though truthfully you’ll find yourself nit-picking over every last tiny detail in a practical, sensible, down-to-earth kind of way. Just watch that you don’t isolate yourself too much. Sometimes you can forget to keep your sense of humour handy.
VIRGO: Maybe the family and loved ones are beginning to mutter unhappily that they never see you. So take the hint, and find time for your nearest and dearest. You have ambitions to fulfil and commitments but you also need to lead a more balanced life, where there is play and relaxation as well as work. Make an effort to try not to look just at the bad and the difficult things today or be too nit picky because it really won’t help.
LIBRA: In order to make one important decision, you have to arrive at the correct standpoint yourself. This may mean delaying until you have pondered on various different possibilities. If you try to be all things to all people it will not work. You may feel that you aren’t able to say all the things you want to say. It’s certainly not a very flamboyant or over-confident day, but it is a good time to concentrate on details and focus on practicalities.
SCORPIO: You are having to push extra hard at the moment behind the scenes to get close partners to shift ground. You know you cannot have it all your own way, nor can you make entirely independent decisions but you will need to feel that you have an area marked off which is yours, especially with regards to money. Maybe you need to seek out someone to talk to, whom you respect and look up to. They will help you enormously and put your thinking straight.
SAGITTARIUS: To be independent or to cooperate? That seems to be your choice now and frankly you can’t quite make up your mind for the best. You know you are unwilling to make certain compromises that are being demanded by someone close, but you are equally not sure whether you wish to cast yourself adrift just yet. Let the dust settle before committing yourself in any direction. You need to keep an eye to the upside as well as the downside.
CAPRICORN:Keeping yourself healthy is always discussed as if it only applies to your body. You know you have to get yourself into good shape now physically, but it is also important to look after yourself psychologically. Think about what calms you down, and make sure that today at least you schedule that activity into the diary. If you get tunnel-visioned, you’ll spot things you might otherwise have missed. This is not a time to fly high or to do anything too dramatically exciting.
AQUARIUS: Fitting in with the crowd can have its compensations since you have many more people around to flit amongst. But then you lose the rewards of intimacy and being the sole focus of someone special’s attention. What you really want is both the freedom of a network of friends, and the adoration of close partners. It may test your ingenuity but it is possible. Someone older may be trying to give you good advice, but they’ll sound to you as if they’re pouring cold water on your best ideas.
PISCES: You know the best way to get more attention is to run around being of service to companions at work or out in the community. Give them what they need and they’ll appreciate you thoroughly. But you also need to give yourself more time to find yourself. You may actually get several important issues straight with loved ones. Just try not to be blinkered in your approach. They may have been careless or irresponsible in your view but they may also have different priorities.
