ARIES: You may feel slightly controlling about your possessions today, and not too happy to share. But a little generosity will be long remembered. You’ll be rethinking your attitude towards one ambition. Maybe what you thought you wanted isn’t what you really want. Perhaps it isn’t possible just at this moment. Finding a real sense of purpose in what you do will take more time and effort. Taking orders is not sitting very comfortably with you at the moment.
TAURUS: It’s important you’re not left on your own or pushed to one side. Ask for what you need, which is more pampering, indulging and feeling comforted. The Moon around in your own sign is the mothering energy but you definitely want to be on the receiving not the giving end. You may run into intense encounters, discussions or differences of opinion now. It will challenge your beliefs but that is no bad thing as long as you are willing to abandon views which have outlived their usefulness.
GEMINI: It’s a time to withdraw into peace and space. Just keep yourself to yourself. You probably don’t want to be too open, since everyone around seems preoccupied. Really what you would love to do is tear down pretence. There is one situation which is not all it appears to be and you would love to bring it all out into the open, yet you cannot do so just yet, no matter how hard you try. The circumstances are not yet ripe for total disclosure.
CANCER: IF IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be a time to broaden your horizons, listen to feedback and be more outgoing. You’ll be charming and chatty, moving around constantly. New opportunities will come so be prepared to be open minded about new options. The mood at home within the family will be easier after August with chances to relax and plans domestic improvements. Soft pedal with your closest partner. Hard work will be unavoidable so you’ll need to boost your stamina.
LEO: You will be focusing on your working situation in a way that says, “I want more attention, I want more recognition for my talents, more appreciation and admiration”. You’ve got to put your energy into doing things in a new and different way, really get out of your rut and making sure other people are well looked after. You won’t find cooperation easy at work, but you have been round this circuit before and know that if you stand your ground, it will resolve itself.
VIRGO: You will be intense in your romantic life, not taking your feelings lightly. Just don’t let jealousy or possessiveness spoil relationships. Your insecurity makes you want to be in control. Learn to be more confident and all will flow more smoothly. Aim to stretch yourself in at least one activity during the day. If you can’t travel literally, travel in your mind. Get out the holiday brochures, read books with an exotic flavour, do anything that takes your mind off whatever is standard and expected.
LIBRA: Once a month for two days the Moon brings you into contact with insights or events that make you think about the deeper mysteries of life, what life is actually all about. Then you can scamper back to normality again. You are changing your attitude almost totally to home and family matters now. This is not an overnight event, but a long slow process where you begin to evaluate carefully what has been, and what you want to hang onto from the past.
SCORPIO: You will be turning your attention to your most personal relationships. Since you may be feeling just a bit more vulnerable than usual, it’s important that you give to help others settle and then in turn they are more likely to do the same for you. It’s a sort of each for each day. An everyday encounter will carry a much more significant tone for you, bringing you intense conversations, in-depth discussions, sometimes rather startling insights. You just have to watch a tendency to become stubborn.
SAGITTARIUS: Keeping your stamina high will be crucial, since you are being landed with a good many chores. You need to watch your diet, not in the sense of eating less but maybe more sensibly, and give yourself things that are going to be of positive benefit rather than pull your energy further down. You are keen to prove just how resourceful you can be in earning more, re-organising what you possess, and in negotiating skilfully. But you do have to watch a tendency to become too controlling around money.
CAPRICORN: Be a little bit theatrical and dramatic, try cracking a few jokes. This is the entertaining Moon of the month for you, so there’s no sense in letting it slide by without making a definite statement in what you do. You do feel quite determined to get to the bottom of one situation now. At times you will sound rather upfront and candid, not diplomatic or cooperative. Your intensity and passionate approach to life will be obvious and appealing to those of a similar persuasion.
AQUARIUS: If you are a little wary of being on your own, put a bit of energy and effort into finding someone nice you can wrap yourself around. Failing a real live human being, go find your teddy bear. In the last resort wear your most comfortable clothes, snuggle up in a comfortable armchair with a good book.rnThrough an encounter you’ll find you are a good deal more resourceful, resilient and a richer personality that you had imagined. You are growing enormously in self-awareness and understanding.
PISCES: You’ll be moving smartly around a busy schedule, with more comings and goings, conversations, meetings and chit chat than usual. You will be more aware of everyday contacts like neighbours, work mates, maybe even brothers and sisters. One friendship or team relationship will be more intense now, which has its upside and its downside. At times Pluto does give rise to power struggles or jealousy. But the true bonds in your life will become stronger, and you are also starting to move amongst more influential people.
