ARIES: Maybe you would rather be out with friends, to be on the party trail. But if you are stuck at work, then everything should run more smoothly. OK you will avoid difficulties duck out of arguments and generally head for the easy options but the end result will be a pleasure. You want tangible gestures of affection to make you feel appreciated and wanted now, either in cuddles or in presents. At times you may be rather possessive. Try to be flexible.
TAURUS: IF IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be indulgent, frivolous, fun-loving and sociable. You’ll be putting your best foot forward and insisting that others value who you are and what you do. In private moments you’ll also be taking responsibility for sorting out tricky financial and emotional tangles. There will be no simple solutions but persistence will pay off. In the final months you’ll find more enthusiastic support at work and be feeling healthier.
GEMINI: If you have been backing away from a difficult conversation, now might just be your chance to build bridges and mend fences. You will manage to express what you feel without being aggressive or abrasive. So no one can take offence. Just keep smiling amiably and all will be resolved. You may sometimes feel lonely and under loved at the moment. But time spent on your own need not necessarily be lonely, since you’ll have a chance to connect to your own deeper feelings.
CANCER: You’ll be feeling good, not getting too much work done. There will be moments when you feel at peace with the world and want to share your feelings with everyone around. Your freedom-loving streak is making you wary of too much intimacy at the moment and claustrophobic twosomes won’t fit the bill. Make sure you communicate to loved ones that your rather detached manner isn’t a rejection of them. You are just in a butterfly mood, flitting happily around, not settling anywhere for long.
LEO: You may be tempted to eat and drink more than usual, since your will power is low and the opportunity presents itself. Very agreeable influences will remove any feeling of being dutiful or conscientious. You may find your waistline expanding a little bit, but you really do not care. If you are on the lookout for a new romance, you could find it at work or perhaps with someone slightly older. It may not be grand passion, but it could raise your social status.
VIRGO: The influences round are not hugely powerful but they do favour financial matters. Your lucky touch is working well, though but you’re also likely to be extravagant and indulgent. You will spend it as fast as you make it. But it will be enjoyable. You will be spreading your favours around fairly generously in a rather enthusiastic way. You want a social life that is challenging, not dull, and will be doing all you can to breathe some adventure into your off duty activities.
LIBRA: Friends are going to be a wonderful connection after hours, but you’ll also be socialising at work or just soothing and smoothing down difficult situations. This is not a time to attempt anything too serious or practical or routine. Charm the boss into letting you do less. Jealousy could be a problem since you want absolute commitment, and any hint of you not being in control of the situation will make you feel insecure. Be aware of your needs but do not over react.
SCORPIO: There will be moments during this time when you can put your feet up and feel happy-go-lucky. It may be that new love relationships are around, or that old relationships are just feeling better. You’re soothing and smoothing and making things much more agreeable than they have been. Just remember to stand up for yourself. You are determined to keep relationships around you smooth and harmonious. But turning somersaults just to keep the peace or avoid confrontations may not always be wise.
SAGITTARIUS: Your tastes will run to the flashy and the frivolous now so you’ll be spending rather gleefully on definitely non-essential items. A little later on you may wonder why you bought them, but just for now you absolutely cannot do without. You are being critical rather than forgiving at the moment with loved ones. Try to say what you want without sounding too sharp. Your detachment can have its useful side since you can pick out what is worth saving and what is not.
CAPRICORN: Venus in aspect to Jupiter, will leave you feeling contented, happy-go-lucky, harmonious and rather lazy. It may not last long but the moment will be worth savouring. If anyone around is low or tetchy, you will cheer them up in an instant. Children are bringing out the best in you now and if happen not to have any then you will be positively child-like yourself in your open hearted determination to play as much as possible. You’ll be putting your feelings on the line.
AQUARIUS: Your tendency will be to smooth over problems rather than face up to difficult people and get a grip on things. If there are tricky situations around, you will be taking the diplomatic route to finding an answer rather than stamping your foot and throwing a tantrum. You are looking around at home seeing how you can make your immediate environment feel more comfortable, relaxing and stylish. But it does seem difficult for you to throw away outworn possessions or furniture.
PISCES: This isn’t a time for routine chores, boring people or anything that requires much self-discipline. Perhaps better to let it all hang out, and head for the happy crowd. Companions will be amused to be around you, so there’s no doubt about your popularity. You will go out of your way to smooth ruffled feathers, or avoid confrontations. A calm atmosphere makes you feel settled, where angry words get you more on edge than usual. Just remember to stand up for yourself at times.
