|ARIES: You want to belong and put down roots. Make your intimate surroundings a cocoon of comfort, with all your favourite mates around. Maybe you will be feeling sentimental about the past, remembering the good not the gritty times. When you get the chance to have a private moment in peace and quiet, you can 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.|
|TAURUS: You may get too close to subjects under discussion or just chatter incessantly about nothing very much. You tend to mix emotion and logic together haphazardly, getting in a muddle as a result or being rather more biased than you imagine. 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, doing all sorts of things in a very lively way. Check out whether what you’re doing is necessary.
IF IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be fast moving, chatty, a time when you’ll need to be organised and streamline your efficiency. Everyday mates at work and in the neighbourhood will be appreciative; and certain family members will also be offering affectionate support. One partner may be a touch cool and you’ll be thrown back on your own resources, emotionally and financially. If you take the initiative, you can build yourself greater security.
|GEMINI: More than usual you will adore the better things of life – good food, drink, pleasant surroundings and rather sensuous clothes. Your need for security may be pushing you one way and your desire for extravagance pulling you the other. Blame it on the Moon, which is fickle, and 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, smell and taste good, and they never come cheap.
|CANCER: One moment you’re charmingly outgoing and the next in fast retreat. Highly sensitive to slights, you may over-react, hear what was not intended, or disappear behind a defensive barrier at a whiff of criticism. 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 isn’t quite as important as you’re making it out to be.|
|LEO: 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. 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.|
|VIRGO: Ask advice where you can since team mates and others can give you helpful hints as you try to set your agenda for the next month. It’s not a good idea to make up your mind until you’ve had a chance to discuss things. Too much advice can make you bewildered and confused, but not enough input and you make the wrong decisions. Listen carefully, sift all the ideas you have been given, and when the moment is ready, you will know what the options are.
|LIBRA: You will look to your work situation to give you strength and encouragement more so than home for these couple of days. 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. Your thinking is running along more practical lines than usual, and you want tangible results from your efforts.|
|SCORPIO: Your intuition will be working well, so you can look ahead and know a little of what is coming ahead. Mixing with social mates from different countries and different cultures will put you in brighter spirits. A real attack of the wandering feet will make it tricky to settle down to anything requiring concentration. But why should you? You don’t want to be stuck in a corner. You want to be flying round the world in your hot-air balloon. Let your imagination soar.|
|SAGITTARIUS: This is a small clearing out phase. You need to let go whatever is not needed for the days ahead. 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 need certainly to stand firm until you find the answers you are looking for, but then roll with the flow. You are handling discreet information well now, attracting secrets from others without even appearing to ask.|
|CAPRICORN: You will work well with the public or your wider circle of friends, since you are sensitive to the subtle messages that come across. Don’t go leaping into a situation too emotionally and then find you don’t really want to see it through to the end, because with the Moon across the zodiac from your sign 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, re-assuring mates.|
|AQUARIUS: Being of service to others will give you reassurance and your rewards will come in the days ahead, when more support is on offer. It’s a rather self-sacrificing kind of day 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. Just polish your halo and console yourself with the thought that you will get your rewards in a couple of days’ time.|
|PISCES: 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. Your emotions will be more fickle. You need to be noticed. Expressing your feelings and putting emotions into words will prove less of a problem than usual. Though watch you are not putting on too much style, speaking more for effect than content.|
