|ARIES: There is a need for change in one close partnership, and it could just be a minor adjustment in the way you relate to each other. If you can let go and allow changes to take place without fearing that you will be handing over control, then you will find your connection deepens. Luckily, the Moon is in flowing aspect to Mercury so you do have a capacity to intuitively understand feelings and emotional situations around you. Just watch you are not getting too close to things.|
|TAURUS: You will have a definite need for something more exciting and thrilling today. Maybe you want to exert power over other people by sort of nudging them into doing something that they might not really want to do. You do have to be cautious, because if you could find close companions get a bit resentful. Try to be more laid-back. With the Moon at odds with Pluto briefly, you will tend to get pulled into tricky situations and end up feeling a touch frustrated or blocked.|
|GEMINI: You may have a slightly fated feeling about one relationship now. You think, “It’s meant; we were together in another lifetime.” That certainty has a nasty habit of fading after a couple of days and you wonder what on earth you were getting so excited about. Watch that your feelings aren’t leading you up the garden path. You will smooch, schmooze and generally put yourself about in a thoroughly charming fashion. Mates will adore your easy-going ways, so you should be able to pour oil on troubled waters.|
|CANCER: As long as you don’t play too many games today, you should manage to twist other people round your little finger. You will have a wicked smile on your face and several trumps hidden well out of sight. But tread warily or close companions may end up feeling controlled or used. You will be dancing off in all directions at once and sudden events at home will keep you on your toes and edgy. You will get jangled if anyone tries to cramp your style.
IF IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be dynamic, energetic, a time when you will go straight ahead and push obstacles to one side. There will be sudden changes at work so you’ll need to stay on your toes and be ready to grab new opportunities that turn up. Money should flow in more easily though your spending will rise so you may not end up with much surplus. Loved ones may be tricky to handle since they won’t give way easily when there are differences. Be subtle.
|LEO: Certain close emotional relationships could become more intense. Sometimes that makes you feel more passionate, sometimes everything gets you struggle to break free. Don’t over react to the odd stress and strain. Rise graciously above it all. Luckily, the Moon in flowing aspect to Jupiter puts you in an amiable humour later. You will want to smooth down rough edges, and make everything around as pleasant and comfortable as possible. You will notice a ray of sunshine around home and in your emotional relationships to keep you glowing.|
|VIRGO: Close friendships will be more important to you than usual today. You want to be around people who will boost your self-esteem and make you feel good. A priority is also to feel free to flit around as it suits you without feeling restricted. You will have to watch that long-running relationships don’t go through a tense phase if you have a possessive partner. Your emotions may be getting in the way of reason, not because you are over heated, but because you cannot think as clearly as usual.|
|LIBRA: The influences around today can be good for being charmingly in a business like way. You know what you want, even if you are not saying, and will use all your wiles to bring companions round to your way of thinking. If you can keep your ulterior motives out of sight, all will work well. You will try to keep companions at arms’ length, since you are playing your cards close to your chest, and don’t want to be manipulated, but you may come across as slightly controlling.|
|SCORPIO: If someone you fancy seems suddenly absolutely fascinating today, watch your step. You could be infatuated or a bit compulsive. Maybe you know in your heart of hearts they are not very good for you, but all the same you feel they are wonderful. Enjoy the feeling but avoid the trap. Maybe you will be too sentimental or sugary sweet. Try to be more honest about your feelings. You will want beauty or luxury at home and your appetite may be more tempted than usual.|
|SAGITTARIUS: It may that that you are feeling a little bit stuck where one relationship is concerned, or insecure. It’s just a passing cloud, so give yourself a shake and be more positive. Looking on the worst side of any situation will always throw up flaws and inadequacies. The Moon is at a tricky angle to Uranus just briefly so you will be highly strung, or just rather rebellious. Right reason or none you are determined to protect your independence.|
|CAPRICORN: There is an old saying about treating loved ones like birds that are allowed to fly free. If you cage them, they will one day escape, but if you can trust enough to let them do what they want, they will more readily come back to you. The message being that clutching doesn’t work in the long run. Jupiter is bringing laziness, indulgence and good-humour into the Moon areas of your life of home, diet, family and the past. You’re likely to over indulge as a result.|
|AQUARIUS: Try flashing a happy smile, even if you are gritting your teeth behind the scenes. You will get your own way faster by being charming than looking too stubborn or grumpy. Your feelings are running deeper than usual, but that should be your secret. Your mind will be wandering quite a bit, so try to think before your speak. At times your rather rebellious attitude towards family and close partners will unsettle the normally co-operative atmosphere, so try to fly solo when you can.|
|PISCES: If you get the better end of these influences, you can be extremely seductive or persuasive. But you have to watch you don’t suddenly clutch at people or make it obvious that you have a hidden agenda up your sleeve. Try to look on the bright side of things. Pluto can make you see the difficulties rather than boosting your optimism. You will cope well with situations that are out of the ordinary, but you may make normal situations more difficult than they need to be.|
