ARIES: When you get the chance to have a moment in peace and quiet, think about personal matters which have been tucked into the background, maybe mull over the past. If you let things come to the surface in your mind you can really sort them out. You want to belong and put down roots. Try to see where you can make home and your intimate surroundings a cocoon of comfort, with all your favourite mates around. You’ll have fun talking about old times.
TAURUS: IF ITS YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be restless, chatty, charming and socially confident. You’ll push old self doubts to one side and be yourself without any apology, so your popularity will soar at parties and at work. Though you’ll need to push hard behind the scenes to sort out financial and emotional dilemmas. You’ll be thrown back on your own resources and have to learn new coping skills. There’ll be more support around in the final months.
GEMINI: You are picking up subtle clues from others, acting like a sponge, soaking in atmosphere, and this can make you biased without realising it. Your need for security may be pushing you one way, and your desire for extravagances is pulling you the other. This makes you point in opposite directions at once. It makes you want to be solidly protected, but it also tempts you to feed your body things that feel good, smell good, taste good, and they never come cheap.
CANCER: Your concentration is wandering a little at the moment, and you are getting very bored with having to listen to feedback. You may say things that startle other people, just to amuse yourself. Try to put yourself into other people’s shoes when you can. That way you know what you want and what they want as well. There could be a point where you get yourself all stewed up about something that basically isn’t quite as important as you’re making it out to be.
LEO: Just for a while you probably won’t feel like socialising, but there are other activities which are likely to attract. Anything mystical or spiritual will hold your attention since you are tuned into deeper levels of awareness. You will also very helpful and compassionate as far as other people are concerned. Maybe you will feel a little lonely or shy, hiding your feelings away, but this is only a two day wonder so is nothing to worry about. Just enjoy your own company.
VIRGO: Watch you aren’t being impractical or unrealistic. 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’ll know what’s going to be practical and workable.
LIBRA: Maybe you do sometimes express yourself too forcibly at the moment. With Mercury in the deepest area of your chart, you are feeling strongly about certain situations, and will not easily change your mind. You will be more emotional in public than usual for a while, 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.
SCORPIO: You’ll go out of your way to avoid mates who get on your nerves at the moment. You want interesting conversations with people who are on your wavelength. You don’t want to be stuck in a corner. Let your imagination soar. Your intuition will be working well, so look ahead and know a little of what is coming ahead. Your comments and opinions are sensible, so try to rely on your own judgement. You might be taking other people’s views too much into account.
SAGITTARIUS: Your helpful suggestions at work are going down well now except when you tramp on other people’s corns as you point out their flaws. Try a little charm, and a few compliments before you wade in to criticise. Don’t become possessive about material things or about things from the past. Be sentimental but don’t 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.
CAPRICORN: There is plenty of fun and laughter around you now. You appreciate your own ideas, and like listeners to be appreciative as well. Just don’t exaggerate too much to make an effect, or embroider the facts to make a good story. Don’t go leaping into a situation too emotionally and then find you don’t really want to see it through to the end. It’s a fragile kind of energy. So it will be important to aim yourself towards nice, happy, reassuring mates.
AQUARIUS: You may be fearing slights where none were intended. You are more sensitive and moody than usual, so you’ll want to retreat into your shell if arguments flare up where you feel your views are being personally attacked. 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. Console yourself with the thought that you will get your rewards later on.
PISCES: You’re not about to let your feelings get in the way of your thinking since you want to be clear. But it does sometimes mean you sound cool. Later you may switch and could 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. Your emotions will be a little more fickle than usual.
