|ARIES: For a few weeks ahead family and domestic matters may be tricky since you will not rest or sit still easily. Other people may be demanding quite a lot of you, so watch you don’t end up feeling resentful. Having to fit in all the time with other people’s plans, whims, suggestions and orders can be a bit of a bore. Do what makes you feel virtuous, but don’t let other people push you too much. You will want to be more efficient and better organised.|
|TAURUS: Your working routines will be speeded up. Short distance journeys and a great many stimulating conversations will keep your adrenalin flowing faster. You want to be flamboyant and exuberant, to be in the spotlight, basking in the limelight. Clearly not a day to be keeping your feelings to yourself. So go flirt, have fun, playing games with loved ones, children or social buddies. Forget routine chores and duck out if you feel an order coming your way. If you are planning a party, it will be impressive.|
|GEMINI: You will be keen to make more money than usual. A rather flamboyant lifestyle will appeal to you so you will want to indulge yourself in the short term. This is a good day to be self-pro-tective and retreat into a private place, preferably at home. So much the better, if you can manage to take the day off, put your feet up and wrap yourself around a warm teddy bear. But even if you’re at work, you need some kind of protective niche.|
|CANCER: Your blood is up and you intend that nothing should be allowed to get in your way, though you may be saying things to others in a way that they don’t entirely understand. You don’t stop, stand back and come to any conclusions or be reflective. The words all just flow out like a flood. If you could be a bit more sensible about one or two things, it would help enormously. Constantly on the move, you will be skimming the surface and cutting a few corners.
IF IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be zippy, dynamic, go ahead and not a time when you’ll put up with nonsense or delays. There will be sudden changes at work so you’ll need to stay on your toes and be ready to jump at new opportunities. Loved ones won’t always be as co-operative as you might wish and will land heavier responsibilities on your shoulders for a while. Try to sidestep arguments and smile sweetly. Money will flow in and flow out again just as fast.
|LEO: You may feel vaguely uneasy and rather held back. You must throw your energy into behind-the-scenes activity or learn to pull strings a little more subtly. You will be amazingly charming as long as everything goes your way, otherwise your stubborn side may show through. Do not dig your heels in too hard. Money and security are the main things on your mind for a brief spell. It’s well worth your while pushing yourself into doing boring things like the paperwork.|
|VIRGO: You’ll be throwing your energy into team activities at work and with friends in your leisure hours. Try not to get hypersensitive or over react to other people’s comments. Sometimes you can just get yourself worked up about things that are not as important as you’re making them out to be. Try to give yourself some space to just wind down and be a bit more at peace if you possibly can. Action will be your first emotional response to any situation.|
|LIBRA: In the coming weeks you will be working hard to achieve your ambitions at work and out in the world. If you’re around others too much, you’ll end up being subjected to their demands so you might as well give yourself permission to do what you want. You won’t manage it entirely, of course, but for some of the day give yourself a chance for reflection. You’ll be surprised in the quiet moments how inspi-ration suddenly hits you about things that seemed to have no answer.|
|SCORPIO: You will be a great crusader for your pet beliefs and enthusiastic about broadcasting your ideas to a wider cross section of friends than usual for a while. You are very tolerant of others, but also need the freedom to do precisely what suits you. You will love startling companions, making provocative statements just to stir up the atmosphere and test their reaction. You may be dashing around people, trying to sort out what they think about this or that, and getting confused as a result.|
|SAGITTARIUS:You’ll be extra determined to fight for your rights in cash and emotional matters. The Moon is nudging you into being more protective of those around at work or out in the community. The more you give, the more everyone will think you are absolutely marvellous. Life is never perfect and neither are you, so you will fail at times to accomplish all you set out to do, and in that moment you still need to feel you are a great human being.|
|CAPRICORN: You will find close relationships both at work and at home more heated than usual. Partners will be fiery tempered and rather irritable but you may also find yourself snapping and sniping. You need an escape route from dreary mates or restrictive chores. You want pals as well as lovers now, nothing too intense or claustrophobic will do. It’s a very lively day, when you will want to communi-cate on a much broader scale. There may be messages coming in from abroad or from a distance away.|
|AQUARIUS: Your nose will be firmly stuck to the grindstone as duty comes first. You will have to push indulgences and pleasure activities to one side to concentrate on becoming more efficient and better organised. Your emotional responses will be more intense for a couple of days. Important, influential or strong-minded people will be drawn into your orbit, but you need to tread softly, and not say everything you feel or think. Watch that jealousy or possessiveness does not get in the way of closeness.|
|PISCES: Mars in your chart area of fun and romance is making you feel passionately enthusiastic about the better things of life. Try not to be jealous or possessive or get yourself unsettled if things are not going precisely as you want. You will tend to react over-quickly to things, hearing slights where none exist. Balance is what you are aiming for, though you may be swinging to extremes in the effort to find it. Having a close partner is vital to your confidence now.|
