|ARIES: Not a time for over eating or overspending. You will not mind pushing aside frivolities and indulgences to get on with the things that are really important. By the day’s end you should be able to polish your halo and feel very virtuous indeed. Rather straightforward in your affections now, you are coming across as courageous and demonstrative, which is just what one situation requires. Generous to a fault, though you might be indignant if others do not share your sense of integrity.|
|TAURUS: You’ll be able to do whatever your conscience tells you without feeling too deprived. There are days when ought takes precedence over want and this is one of them. Your love life may be a bit more restrained but it will bounce back to warmer climes very quickly. Your generosity as the host/ess with the mostest is fast being established. You really want to bring friends and lovers into your intimate surroundings and shower them with good food, vino and a dose of comfort.|
|GEMINI: There needs to be a way of sorting things out so that misunderstandings do not occur in future. With tact, thoughtfulness and good intentions, you should be able to come to a decent conclusion. Your light, airy approach is exactly what is required in special situations at the moment. Ignore those who say you sound too cool and detached. There is a time for passion and this isn’t it. Keep throwing around compliments, cracking jokes and being the entertainer and diplomat.
IF ITS YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be a time of high enthusiasm, speedy action and some caution. You’ll charm the birds off the trees but will manage to sound serious and sensible as well. One close partner may be rather distant or critical so you’ll need to put in effort to ensure you pull together. At work it’ll pay to be as helpful as possible putting others ambitions before your own. If you are unsure what to do next, delay until you are clearer. Home will be happier soon.
|CANCER: The Venus Saturn contact at the moment, will allow you to handle both the light-hearted, frivolous side of your life, and the more serious, self-disciplined side, giving them both equal weight. Your eagle eye will spot any chancers or dodgy schemes. Maybe you do feel just slightly unappreciated by those close but you have no intention of letting it show. You will be irresistibly attracted to the beautiful, luxurious and expensive things of life. Nothing cheap, cheerful or practical will really appeal.|
|LEO: In your love relationships you could feel a little bit separated. It’s just a slight coolness in the air, perhaps duty coming before pleasure. But you will be happy to do whatever your immediate situation demands. No one is going to be pulling the wool over your eyes now. You’re not getting carried away by odd whims or hunches or taking risks. You are saving money, you’re double-checking one or two things, so you’re not likely to get yourself in a muddle.|
|VIRGO: You are working hard and saving hard, with no thought of treats at the moment. But get the balance right and your business like charm will win the day. If you are feeling disappointed or discontented in your love life, then you need to find an understanding partner, who will be sensitive to your moods and needs. Otherwise you will end up feeling secretly resentful and rather martyred about the sacrifices you make for others which do not appear to be appreciated.|
|LIBRA: You’re not going to be bouncing in and giving everyone kisses, cuddles and lots of hugs. It’s a time to deal with other people with a bit of dignity and restraint. Older people will appreciate your concern for their practical needs. You are at your best now in large social groups and team relationships at work looking optimistically ahead. Your friendship circle is welcoming, and you’ll have no shortage of invitations or ports of call when you feel inclined to be out and about.|
|SCORPIO: You’ll get more work done now but in an utterly charming way. You’ll be very diplomatic around situations that require self-discipline. You have that slight sense of reserve that others sometimes feel is quite attractive. You very much want to be seen in the right places with the right people, socialising in the best restaurants now. Maybe you’re opting for companions who are offering status and security rather than real love. Try to be in touch with what you really feel on the inside.|
|SAGITTARIUS: You want good, solid, stable relationships both at work and at home now. You are not making unrealistic demands of other people and neither are they of you. So it will be a good time to discuss almost any problems that come up. If you are thinking of throwing a party you will want it to be flamboyant, maybe even rather grand, or with a foreign theme. Think where you would most like to be on holiday and then bring that into your home.|
|CAPRICORN: If you’re often a little bit frivolous, indulgent and can’t settle down to the chores, this is the time you get real. Or if you are normally gloomy, push aside fun and just do what you have to do, then you will positively blossom with good humour. It is all or nothing with you at the moment where your emotional life is concerned. Rather stubbornly intent on your own path, a touch proud maybe, you will be possessive with those who mean most.|
|AQUARIUS: It will be important to step back from time to time to make up your mind what’s going to be good for you in the long term. Planning is the name of the game. So you will be avoiding any kind of distraction or indeed temptation. Good for diets, good for saving schemes – all the things you usually find slightly dreary. Venus will do wonders for your closest relationships. You are in love with love and putting out highly attractive vibes.|
|PISCES: The highly practical, realistic influences around now will mean you tackle work projects in a fashion that brings positive results. They’re good for creative tasks as well, because you can turn your dreams into reality and make your artistic talents and your imagination work for you. You could find romances spring up around your everyday chores. Even if that doesn’t happen you will still find you gain great comfort from doing your job. You will take pleasure in doing things with care.|
