ARIES: Maybe you know in your heart of hearts that someone you fancy is not really very good for you but all the same you know they are wonderful. Enjoy the feeling but avoid the trap. Don’t get too pushy, even if you feel someone is being rather unfair in their actions. There’s no sense in getting into unwinnable arguments. When Pluto is around, you often lose more than you gain. Try to find a sensible compromise which means you can stay true to yourself.
TAURUS: IF ITS YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be seductive, persuasive, a time to lighten your tone, smooth down problems and be a peacemaker. Your popularity will rise out on the social scene and at work since your positive approach will cheer everyone up. Behind the scenes however you will be wrestling with a few secret matters which won’t find an easy solution. Be persistent and remember the effort you make now will bring you more security in the longer term.
GEMINI: If you can let go and allow changes to take place without fearing that you will be handing over control, then you’ll find your connection deepens. Your feelings are not that light hearted now. Maybe you are trying too hard to stay in control and are wary of being pushed around by authority figures. There seems to be a situation in your life where you feel powerless or trapped. If you’re tempted to act secretly to avoid confrontations it may not be entirely wise.
CANCER: As long as you don’t play too many games you should manage to twist other people round your little finger. You’ll have a wicked smile on your face and several trumps hidden well out of sight. But do have tread warily otherwise close companions may end up feeling controlled or used which will only end up in rather sharp words. You are tending now to attract yourself to stronger personalities in your everyday encounters. So you end up in a minor tug of war.
LEO: Maybe you want to exert power over others by sort of nudging them into doing something that they might not really want to do. Be cautious, because if you could find close companions get a bit resentful. Try to be more laid-back. You’ll thrive in a work situation where you are able to upgrade or regenerate it. If you chose too routine and stable a job then you’ll run into opposition from workmates who find your constant controlling of the situation difficult to handle.
VIRGO: You may have a slightly fated feeling about one relationship now. That certainty has a habit of fading after a couple of days and you wonder what on earth you were getting so excited about. So you may have to watch that your feelings aren’t leading you up the garden path. You are certainly not taking your emotional life lightly at the moment. You are either on people or off them in a major way. There doesn’t seem to be a half way house.
LIBRA: Certain close emotional relationships become more intense. Sometimes that makes you feel more passionate, sometimes everything gets a bit gritty and you struggle to break free. Don’t over react to the odd stress and strain. Just rise graciously above it all. You do want much deeper connections now not only with your close family, but also with the earth. You want to feel you belong and are firmly rooted. An almost mystical link with nature will bring you a new sense of meaning.
SCORPIO: You know what you want, even if you are not saying, and will use all your wiles to bring companions round to your way of thinking. If you can keep your ulterior motives out of sight then all will work well. This is not the time to be frivolous, or too scattered. But it may help if you keep your sense of humour handy. Your words will carry weight so you will be respected for your wisdom and the depth of your understanding.
SAGITTARIUS: If you get the better end of the current influence, you can be extremely seductive or persuasive. But you have to watch a little bit that you don’t suddenly clutch at people or make it obvious that you have a hidden agenda up your sleeve. You can start to build better securities now though you will have to understand what went wrong in the past. If you keep doing things the old way it won’t work. So just clear the decks, and start again.
CAPRICORN: It may that that you’re feeling a little stuck where one relationship is concerned, or insecure. It’s just a passing cloud, so give yourself a shake. Looking on the worst side of any situation will always throw up flaws and inadequacies. At times like this you may notice a tendency in yourself to over control companions which can lead to resentment. But as you welcome in new experiences you’ll find that you’re coping with a wide variety of situations in new and helpful ways.
AQUARIUS: You’ll get your own way faster by being charming than looking too stubborn or grumpy. Your feelings are running deeper than usual, but that should be your secret. You do need the chance to dig beneath the surface of your life to explore what is really bothering you. You may be wary of finding out things you do not like about yourself but in the process you will miss finding all the positive parts of yourself which have been hidden away far too long.
PISCES: The atmosphere in certain friendships or team relationships may be tense. There can be jealousy or possessiveness around which is hard to handle calmly and tactfully. There’s an old saying about treating loved ones like birds which are allowed to fly free. If you cage them they will one day escape. But if you can trust enough to let them do what they want, they will more readily come back to you. The message being that clutching doesn’t ever work in the long run.
