ARIES: There could be the odd confrontation through the day, not because you’re assertive, but you just feel a little over-emotional. If you do stir up a problem, just don’t go too far. You will not really want to see it through. You will start something and at the end of it all you wish you hadn’t bothered. At other times today you may try to accommodate others’ needs or be agreeable to the extent that you appear not to have strong opinions of your own.
TAURUS: IF IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be sociable, charming and outgoing some of the time but you’ll also be pre-occupied by secret matters, financial and emotional. Behind the scenes you’ll need to be persevering and flexible, taking heavier responsibilities onto your shoulders and not giving way until you reach fairer agreements. Luckily, you won’t be short of self-confidence and your positive approach will win you popularity at work and at parties.
GEMINI: Everyone around knows you are honest, reliable and straightforward when it comes to agreements. You are known to put a high stress on fair play and justice. So you are attracting reliable, strong partnerships. Though there may be tensions in certain close relationships. Saturn around now may cut down on warmth, and give rise to more carping and nit picking, or land you with heavy responsibilities, but it makes good bonds more long lasting.
CANCER: You are finding it easier to be patient, meticulous about detail. Just don’t get obsessed with getting jobs done perfectly, and constantly correcting for not speaking correctly. Be tolerant. If you do push yourself too hard you will find your body complaining. Whenever you feel under par, you must ask yourself where you have not been paying proper attention to your physical needs. Take time out to give yourself a chance to mull things over from the recent past and to get your head together.
LEO: This is not a time for feeling too spontaneous, playful or expressing your feelings wholeheartedly. Be firm, be practical and straight. You’ve really got to be clear in your own mind about the message you’re trying to get across, since you may get scattered in a busy, busy time. You have too many loose ends flying around your head, too many people to chat to or visit. You will thrive on interesting, varied conversations, though with your grasshopper mind today, you won’t concentrate on anything for long.
VIRGO: You may slightly discouraged at home either over practical problems or because you feel neglected. Just be persistent. Life may not be rapturous and ecstatic but you are building more solid foundations for the future. As a treat you want to give your body things that smell nice, feel nice, taste nice, look nice. Pleasuring your senses comes with the Moon, but you will also worry a little bit about leaving yourself feeling insecure if you go too wild.
LIBRA: You tend not to take life at face value at the moment. You don’t feel comfortable around too much small talk and surface chatter. Mates may find you a little too stiff or rather gloomy. Do not become discouraged if you feel others are disagreeing with you or excluding you from conversations. Just force yourself to find the courage to ask what has gone wrong and to try to put it right. You will not know from minute to minute what it is you actually want.
SCORPIO: Don’t feel martyred because your efforts are taken for granted. Give gladly and look after yourself as well in the absence of anyone else doing it. Just keep a watchful eye on your personal finances. Prudence now will bring rewards later. By the end of Saturn’s trip around your chart area of money matters, you will be in a much more solid, secure position in life and in the long term will come to be grateful for the lessons you have been forced to learn.
SAGITTARIUS: Understated is the word that matches your mood. Just try a little colour or a few fun touches once in a while. This is no time to be living on other people’s terms. You must prune everything out of your life that is inessential or outmoded and understand you are now beginning a new twenty-nine year cycle in your life. You may become jealous if you think a friend is off talking to someone else when you want to be talking to them. Don’t overreact.
CAPRICORN: Do not fall into the glooms of self-doubt now. You will not lose anything or anyone who is necessary to your future happiness or security. Just observe, evaluate and let go what wants to go from your life. It may be a while before you decide what your next major career or life move should be. This is a time of tidying up an old way of being, and you are not quite at the point where you can step out into the new phase that is coming.
AQUARIUS: You may feel friends are harder to come by than they used to be and that is making you too reserved. Be less formal and let your sense of humour show. The people you chose as friends may be older or more sensible. At times you will not be happy with their rather critical advice, but it is solidly based and well meant. They are prompting you to be more serious about your long-term plans. You want to see things in a much broader way.
PISCES: This isn’t the day to fly solo or do things entirely on your own. You’ve really got to push yourself to make new agreements with close partners where money or emotional matters are concerned. It may take a compromise all round, but it will be worth it. So give a little bit, take a little bit, shift ground and meet in the middle. You’ll be conscientious and self disciplined at work. But maybe at times you are putting too high a value on social respectability.
