|ARIES: You’re full of bright ideas, chattering away in grand style, determined to get your views across. Try to listen as well, since communication should be a two way process. You could pick up useful feedback. Write down a few bullet points before you start and that way you will not be distracted from your main points. More short distance travelling than usual seems to be taking up your time. You may not manage to do much in depth or detail, but you won’t be bored.|
|TAURUS: You will be whizzing around on short-distance journeys, or writing more letters than usual, making phone calls galore. You feel you just have to talk, talk, talk. Just watch a slight tendency to tell other people exactly what you think of their inadequacies and flaws. Needless to say, that won’t go down well. You may be getting edgy at the moment about carelessness or sloppiness in workmates or those you handle money with. Just don’t get too nitpicky. Keep putting them straight.|
|GEMINI: Maybe you will feel a little bit highly strung or wound-up today, but you can make good use of your hyper-active state. You will be absolutely on the ball where discussions are concerned, having more than enough ideas of witty suggestions to keep the conversation flowing. Just make sure you are not being too sharp at points. More restless than usual and with a low boredom threshold, you will keep on the move constantly, visiting as many friends as possible. You will be good at mental activities.
IF IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be scattered, chatty and pro-active. You won’t always stop to think but will be continually on the move. Just be aware that one close partner may not always be in step. If you take your responsibilities towards them seriously then all will go well. Just don’t get negative. Luckily, your confident way with words will bring you respect and admiration. You’ll be opening your eyes to new opportunities. Home will be happier.
|CANCER: Your mind will be leaping from subject to subject at computer speed. Unfortunately, companions may be slower-witted than you, so try to slow down once in a while just to check they are actually hearing what you have to say. Be clear about what may seem to be trivial details. Regard this as a gestation phase of a few weeks, when you plan, ponder and prepare for what is about to come nearer your birthday. Nothing comes together spectacularly well at this time of the year.|
|LEO: It’s a fidgety kind of day. Mercury in mythology was the messenger of the gods. He flitted around with wings on the heels of his sandals, so he was never still. Your mind will be exactly the same. You will be sorting out longer term plans for the next twelve months, so bounce your ideas around and see what feedback you get. Helpful practical advice will put you on the right lines, though obviously the decision will be yours at the end of the day.|
|VIRGO: Too many ideas are chasing round inside your head so you are at risk of getting in a muddle. You’ve got to have some kind of structure to what you’re saying, otherwise you will not communicate clearly. Rather proud and dignified just now you are putting a good deal of emphasis on personal reputation. You will dislike more than usual being passed over for attention or praise at work. You want to be noticed, not made to feel one of the crowd.|
|LIBRA: The old motto of be prepared is not a bad idea at all today. Get everything in ship shape order, before you launch into activity or into discussions. Sometimes it’s a good idea to be self-critical, particularly before other people get a chance to have a look at your pet schemes. That way you can forestall criticism or complaints and appear very efficient. Maybe you are not being very practical, but you can always sort out what is workable in a few weeks’ time.|
|SCORPIO: You may be inclined to spread yourself a little thinly today because you are trying to handle six things at once. Get your list of priorities straight before you start. Then tick them off as you go along and you will end up feeling more than pleased with yourself. At times it may seem a little like a battlefield as confrontations litter your way ahead. You may complain about your difficult path just now but it will only last for a few weeks.|
|SAGITTARIUS: You are on an adrenaline rush today, so you will want to pack more things into your schedule. If you go with the speed of your thinking, you could motivate and encourage companions into joining in. They will appreciate the freshness of your approach, and way of seeing what they miss. Blessed with tact and diplomacy, you should notice an improvement in your social life now. Your charming manner, a way of putting others at ease will be attracting all manner of compliments and intriguing invitations.|
|CAPRICORN: You will be a positive fountain of inspiration, but trying to catch your stream of consciousness and bottle it may be trickier. You will not want to stop long enough to consolidate your thinking. Maybe you are feeling resentful because you are not given all the appreciation your might like or higher rewards for your labours, but at the end of the day you will be better pleased doing a good job for its own sake, rather than gaining success and glory in the world.|
|AQUARIUS: You will not worry about voicing your feelings and your desires. More than anything what you want is to be applauded, so you will be hamming it up madly at times, but so charmingly everyone will clap even harder. It might be a time to do outstanding paperwork. It’s not a plodding kind of day at all, really it is rather fidgety, but you will have good insights and a quick eye for what is out of place. It is a good day to get new things started.|
|PISCES: You’ll be in mental overdrive, so you zip on so quickly that you miss out on opportunities. It may go against the grain, but if you can pause to collect your scattered wits, you will achieve more. If you rush too fast you may get careless or cut corners. Then nothing works well. If you can push heavier chores at work to one side for a few weeks it will help. Rather inward looking, you would like to feel more in touch with your soul.|
