If You Were Born Today, March 14
IF ITS YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be challenging where finances, friendships and future plans are concerned. The trick will be not to act too impulsively or be too submissive. Just be determined and keep a calm head on your shoulders. You’ll be lucky as well as stressed so you’ll have enough surplus cash to pamper and indulge yourself. Hard work will bring you respect. One close partnership will flourish after mid year as you share more activities together.
|ARIES: You will be more emotional in public than usual, which may feel strange, but it lets other people see the more human side of you. So you will attract more sympathy, and at the same time be more sensitive to what’s going on around at work. You are thinking seriously about your beliefs now. Life may test out your old opinions by setting up arguments for you. Try to be open minded and listen to opposing views though don’t be too swayed by convention.
|TAURUS: Your intuition will be working well, so you can look ahead and know a little of what is coming ahead. You are getting more irked now about lazy, sloppy or unmotivated mates. You can be quite a hard taskmaster if you have authority over others, since you don’t understand why everyone does not share your commitment to getting things done. Joint finances may be tighter now. Or your partner’s cash situation is such that they cannot be as generous as they once were.|
|GEMINI: Just briefly you may be a little bit possessive about material things or about things from the past. Be sentimental but don’t hang on too tightly, or dig your heels in too much. You do need certainly to stand firm until you find the answers you are looking for but then let go, roll with the flow. Looking at the flaws in your close partnerships does not necessarily need to mean they will end. Only shaky affairs of the heart may flounder.|
|CANCER: Don’t go leaping into a situa-tion too emotionally and then find you don’t really want to see it through to the end. You can sometimes lose courage about things. It’s a fragile kind of energy. So it will be important to aim yourself towards nice, happy, reassuring mates. You may feel over stressed at times and under-appreciated for your efforts but this is a time of laying solid foundations for the future. You will get your rewards in terms of praise and success soon.|
|LEO: It’s a rather self-sacrificing kind of time which means you have to put aside your own need for frivolity and indulgence just to make sure that everyone else is getting what they want. So polish your halo and console yourself with the thought that you will get your rewards in a couple of days. Love and your social life will seem more like work than work at times. Out of this testing time for affairs of the heart could come some truly valuable insights.|
|VIRGO: Try not to be too possessive. Maybe you do feel like clutching and clinging a little more than usual, but it won’t be wise. Have your entertainment and enjoyment without pinning close mates down, otherwise they may want to skip off elsewhere. Feelings you have swept under the carpet for years at home or in the family could be coming out into the open. Reassure yourself with the thought that you can now sort out once and for all those domestic and emotional problems.|
|LIBRA: You are appreciating differences and distinctions, which others regard as too trivial to bother about. But it does mean you will spot what they overlook, and that can be highly useful. Though you want excitement, stimulation and a bit of a challenge to hold your interest. Expect the unexpected and you will not be disappointed. If there is a whiff of jealousy or control in the air you will be off, since you have no intention of treading anyone else’s line.|
|SCORPIO: If you can speak to companions in a cooler, more rational way, they’re likely to connect a little bit better. But you will be whizzing around at high speed here and there, doing all sorts of things in a very lively kind of way. Check out in advance whether what you’re doing is necessary – sometimes you rush too fast and don’t stop to think things through. Tightening your belt may be necessary for a brief while but there is nothing catastrophic about cash shortages.|
|SAGITTARIUS: Your need for security may be pushing you one way, and your desire for extravagances is pulling you the other. You want to be solidly protected, but you are also tempted to feed your body things that feel good, smell good, taste good, and they never come cheap. You may find your energy levels are low so you don’t have the inclination to work quite as hard as you once did. Just try to face up to what you want from life.|
|CAPRICORN: There could be a point where you get yourself all stewed up about something that basically isn’t quite as important as you are making it out to be. You are essentially a good organiser but you are having to force yourself at the moment to be in control of practical situations. You feel certain old ambitions have lost their fire and are no longer what you want. Just give yourself time to decide what you want to be doing in the long term.|
|AQUARIUS: You won’t feel like socialising, just temporarily, but there are other activities which attract. Anything mystical or spiritual will hold your attention since you are tuned into deeper levels of awareness. You will also be very helpful and compassionate as far as other people are concerned. Do not let discouragement get you down if disagreements flare up or even if you feel cold-shouldered in team efforts. Only by facing up to difficulties can you hope to establish better relationships out in the world.|
|PISCES: It’s not a good idea to make up your mind instantly about one plan until you’ve had a chance to discuss it with everyone around. Too much advice can make you bewildered and a bit confused. But not enough input and you may reach the wrong decisions. Just listen carefully, sift and sort out all the ideas you have been given, and then when the moment is ready, you will know exactly what the options are, what is going to be practical and workable.
