|ARIES: Today you will be painting pictures in your mind, which is delightful. Though not so easy when you try to express what you are thinking or feeling. Try to draw your important messages, or even write a poem about them. Pictures and images will speak volumes. This is a passive not an active time. You may overspend on luxury items for home but they will make you feel good. Just don’t go too wild compensating for what you feel you lack elsewhere.|
|TAURUS: Neptune around mildly now is a great healer, not in a dramatic way but by gently soothing. It disappears very quickly in the hurry and scurry of modern living. If you can connect to it then you find not just that you feel physically better but that you also a deeper sense of meaning and purpose, though at times your rather rebellious attitude towards family and close partners will unsettle the normally co-operative atmosphere, so try to fly solo when you can.|
|GEMINI: You’re going to be fascinated by rather mystical things. You want to get away from the rational, logical and practical world, to float off, not quite on a little pink cloud, but heading that way. You know there are more things on heaven and earth than normal life lets in. You will be thoroughly and gloriously lazy but it might be an idea in the peaceful moments to mull over old memories. You can be more settled if you have thought things through carefully.
IF IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be chatty, restless, dynamic though curiously vague about making decisions where your career or life’s direction is concerned. Just let yourself drift for a while and be as helpful as you can, putting others’ ambitions before your own. One close partnership will be cool, at times critical, but if it is strong, it will come through a testing time even closer. After August, you’ll relax at home and find the family more amiable.
|CANCER: There are days when making a determined push is the right approach. Then there are days when doing nothing at all seemingly ends you up in the right place at the right time, saying the right thing to the right people without much effort. Sod’s law, but pleasant when it happens all the same. Try to look on the bright side. You will cope well with situations that are out of the ordinary but you may make normal situations more difficult than they need to be.|
|LEO: Today is a day to pen a love letter, read poetry or even write one. Forget the accounts or the more unpleasant sides of reality. Let others do the rushing around. You will tend to over-eat since you want to pamper yourself and perhaps feel that loved ones are being unappreciative, so you have to spoil yourself. You will also avoid arguments since you really cannot be bothered with hassle, but you could end up not standing up for yourself enough with the family or loved ones.|
|VIRGO: There could be an absolutely charming message coming your way, or a chance encounter that leaves you feeling rather ethereal. Maybe it will just be a passing moment, but it will bring a deeper sense of connection to a better world. Remember it when you get back into the hassle and hustle. Later the Moon is at a tricky angle to Uranus just briefly so you will be highly strung, or just rather rebellious. Right reason or none you are determined to protect your independence.|
|LIBRA: If you attempt any tasks that require clear-thinking or attention to precise detail, you won’t do well and will end up in a muddle, so push dreary chores to one side. If you go with the flow you will get where you want to go just as quickly. Jupiter is lazy, indulgent and good-humoured and it will bring all that energy into the Moon areas of your life which are home, diet, family and the past, so you are likely to over indulge and expand as a result.|
|SCORPIO: You’re more sensitive to the subtler aspects of the world than usual, so everything around feels dreamy, romantic. If it doesn’t, you’ll want to disappear into that sweet world inside yourself. If you have to be in contact with other people, you’ll be picking up their problems without even having to ask. You will try to keep companions at arms’ length, since you are playing your cards close to your chest, and don’t want to be manipulated, but in turn you may come across as slightly controlling.|
|SAGITTARIUS: Anything which feels too clashing, difficult or harassing will not suit you quiet mood. You want things to be soothed and smoothed and wound down. Your intuition will be working well, so trust your instincts. Just don’t try to make cash decisions or add up the budget since your concentration will wander. You want pamper yourself. Your lazy steak will be more obvious than usual which, if you are normally too active, will be no bad thing.|
|CAPRICORN: Avoid being directly confrontational with people, or leaping in with provocative comments. You’ll end up losing words and not knowing how to finish what you started. You have to pause anyway since you may be responding to something you did not quite understand. Later you will be dancing off in all directions at once not sitting still for long. Sudden events at home will keep you on your toes and rather edgy. You will get jangled if anyone crowds you or tries to cramp your style.|
|AQUARIUS: You’re going to be a bit vague or uncertain. Let yourself dream, listen to music or just be a little more imaginative. You will not even mind if someone tries to pull the wool over your eyes. You will be immensely forgiving, and just look the other way. You will want to smooth down rough edges, and make everything around as pleasant and comfortable as possible. You will notice a ray of sunshine around home and in your emotional relationships to keep you glowing.|
|PISCES: With Mercury in aspect to Neptune across the zodiac it’s a subtle, sensitive and very sympathetic day. You’ll be putting yourself across to people in a way that makes them understand where you’re coming from. What’s more, you will have an almost magical way of understanding what they’re all about. Though the Moon is also at odds with Pluto just briefly so you will tend to get pulled into tricky situations, and end up feeling a touch frustrated or blocked.|
