|ARIES: You can expect the unexpected socially and romantically. You want new, fun people, stimulation and sparkle and a little bit of excitement around the place, so it can be extremely lively with Uranus there, and you don’t always know what’s coming, so it’s erratic and unpredictable. At times you may have your head in a sea-fog, but if you can be gentle and quiet with yourself, and indeed with other people, you will be more sensitive to what’s going on in the atmosphere around you.|
|TAURUS: If you’ve got a long-running emotional relationship, the present influences come along and just shakes it up a little bit, and if you’re hanging on too much for security, it sometimes feels a little bit insecure. On the other hand, it opens you up and lets a blast of fresh air blow through things and you begin to think, “Well, maybe I do need a little bit more independence. You will understand what companions need now, which is wonderful and helpful.|
|GEMINI: If you need to add sparkle and fun to your closest relationship, then go to it. Waken things up that have become dull and routine. If you’re too insecure, it could make you a little edgy because you’re scared of letting go, and yet if you take a risk, if you take a bit of a gamble and open up to life, then something rather fun could be happening. You may end up with lower energy, lower concentration, sometimes confidence, so you’ll go up into a daydream.
IF IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be a mix of fun loving and rather vague. You won’t be clear about what direction to take in your career or in your life. Let yourself drift and in the meantime be as helpful as you can, putting others’ needs in front of your own. New doors will open since your positive approach is catching the approval of the right people. One partner may be rather cool or critical. Just take it in your stride and know that home will be happier after mid-year.
|CANCER: An old, long-running relationship could be sparkling back to life, or a new relationship will come into your life that just puts the twinkle back in your eye. You could get sudden financial gains as well. Sometimes you spend more money, so you have to watch there aren’t unexpected losses. If you keep things on an even keel, there won’t be too many problems. This is clearly not the day to confront difficult situations or difficult people, because you cannot work up the energy or the courage.|
|LEO: Today could be a little disruptive. It’s roller-coaster, Uranus, switch on-switch off, to do with your affections, to do with indulgences and extravagances. You may be spending money like mad, and then suddenly wishing you hadn’t bothered. Really, this is a day to be sympathetic, spiritual, and maybe creative though you may find it difficult to push yourself into doing anything very practical, but whatever happens you will not be as worried about your own needs or ambitions.|
|VIRGO: At times you want to take risks and have thrills, and two or three days later you look back and think, “I wish I hadn’t done that so impulsively.” You’ll also feel like being charitable or working for the underprivileged now. Maybe you also want to withdraw a little bit and have time to think about the more mystical things of life. To be truthful, what you really want is to stay in bed or put your feet up in an armchair.
|LIBRA: The influences could bring fun relationships into your life, but will also bring zany people. They are very exciting in the short term, but you then begin to think, “Maybe I could do with people who are a little bit more solid and settled.” Later you will be floating along rather passively rather than zipping into activity. You’ll be visionary, dreamy but not always good at turning dreams into reality. You cannot get up the energy. Be quiet, but watch you don’t end up feeling slumped.|
|SCORPIO: You could be impatient with loved ones, because you want them not to be as dull as they have been. If you can make partners waken up a little bit, then everybody is going to have a great deal more fun. You need to be flexible. There are confusing and uncertain influences around, so try to do less rather than more until the dust settles. It won’t be easy to be clear in your focus, since you can’t dredge up the concentration or find enough motivation.|
|SAGITTARIUS: There may be somebody catching your eye over the next couple of days. It’s definitely a time to look for new experiences, to do anything that’s original, experimental and inspired. Maybe you need to try and be a little bit more artistic while you’re at it. You want to help other people, but may get muddled since you have not worked out what you need to do to make things happen. You make a half-hearted attempt and then nothing works, so you give up. Strategy is needed.|
|CAPRICORN: There’ll be a light-hearted, fun-loving energy around today. The only thing that it isn’t good for is possessive relationships or relationships where you want to keep everything still and stable and nothing budging an inch, and Uranus comes along and says: “You’ve got to open up a little bit, get rid of restrictions, give yourself a little bit of room to breathe. Open the window, let a blast of fresh air blow through.” You’ll tend to be over-nice, but you could attract less than honest people.|
|AQUARIUS: You’re likely to go off and flirt. You want to be around people who are go-ing to be light-hearted and rather more exciting. You’re probably spending money like mad on rather more entertaining things than usual. You want that rather electrical quality in life. See if there is a way of turning your intuition and hunches into practice. It means doing something more solid and sensible than you may feel, but it will be worth the effort if you can manage.|
|PISCES: Whatever tensions there have been may have been in your emotional life may come out into the open, but that is all to the good because they will set you free and allow you to do the things that you really need to do for yourself. The influences around now could be enlightening but they could also be misleading. You need to stay practical and grounded to get the best end of Neptune. It can be religious or spiritual, even connected to things paranormal.|
