|ARIES: Maybe you’ll feel more dependent than usual, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. You just have to make sure that close partners understand it is each for each. It cannot all be one way otherwise resentment will build up. Try to get better understandings in place. You’ll tend to see the downside now being too focused on loved one’s flaws. You may well be right, but it’s not always very tactful to point them out. No surprise then that communication might be difficult.|
|TAURUS: It’s time to get more practical about your daily schedule. Find ways of boosting your stamina in the months ahead and try not to waste energy going the long way round chores. Maybe you need to seek out someone to talk to, whom you respect and look up to. They will help you enormously and put your thinking straight. Maybe you’re seeing things from far too one sidedly. So broaden your view a little bit. See one tricky situation with a rather softer view.
|GEMINI: Whether you are around loved ones or social mates, you will want rounds of applause and appreciative attention. Not a time to skulk in the corner. Be boisterous and exuberant and make sure you get centre spotlight. If you get tunnel-visioned, you’ll spot things you might otherwise have missed. This is not a time to fly high or to do anything too dramatically exciting. This is a time to be cautious. Sometimes you need to slow yourself down to see things more clearly.
|CANCER: Putting down roots and finding a sense of belonging is especially important to you now. It does not make you gloomy, but it makes you sensitive to any lacks in your emotional life. You want to be surrounded by everything that feels comforting and reassuring. It will take an effort but if you can keep your feet on the ground with loved ones, be sensible and practical then in a couple of days’ time you can leap out and be outrageously irresponsible again.|
|LEO: Paying attention to the small details, may not sound like a laugh a minute. But if you ignore the chores now, you will not be able to tackle the expansive, more fun projects in future. Regard it as a useful preliminary. Loved ones may be flying along on the cloud tops but you’ll know it is much more sensible to look in advance at the downside of plans. Because you know from past experience that leaping into things thoughtlessly doesn’t work out well.
|VIRGO: Mull everything over carefully, and once you have reached a considered decision, you can take steps to resolve whatever is bothering you. Just don’t expect instant results. Someone older may be trying to give you good advice. But they’ll sound to you as if they’re pouring cold water on your best ideas. In fact they’re trying to let you see what the realistic consequences of what you want to do actually are. So OK they are limiting you but they are making sense.|
|LIBRA: Getting your head and your heart together will be important at the moment. What you want to do and ought to do have to be the same thing. In that way you can put your wholehearted enthusiasm behind your plans which will work better as a result. Make sure you have supportive companions around who are willing to follow your lead. OK so you’re not going to be as happy-go-lucky as normally. But you may actually get several important issues straight with loved ones.
IF ITS YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be a time to get your head and your heart together, decide what you want and go for it. Close partners will be unpredictable and best left to their own devices. Take time to make the right choices and rely on your own judgement. Slowly but surely you’ll get the changes in place that you want at home though there may be some resistance from older family members. Nearer next birthday everything will come right and good luck will speed you along.
|SCORPIO: Nothing will be gained by racing around at high speed, now especially when your energy and motivation are low. There will be more benefit to finding quality time for yourself. Ponder, prepare, plan and understand. Companions may be needing help, but you need to put down limits as well. Make an effort to try not to look just at the bad and the difficult things or be too nit picky because it really won’t help. But certainly don’t let anyone undermine your self-confidence.|
|SAGITTARIUS: If you have been feeling hopeless about making any difference to the society in which you live, then now is the time to give yourself a shake. Join hands with likeminded friends. Together you can achieve more than you imagine. It just requires focus and persistence. You may feel that you aren’t able to say all the things you want to say. It’s certainly not an over-confident time. But it is a good time to concentrate on details, focus yourself in on practicalities.|
|CAPRICORN: Maybe you could do with more time with loved ones, but you know you cannot take your eye off the ball at work. If you are feeling pulled in two directions, then maybe you need to revise your plans and ambitions. You need to be focussed and clear that what you are doing has your exclusive attention. You are going to be nit-picking over every last tiny detail but in a practical kind of way. Just watch that you don’t isolate yourself too much.|
|AQUARIUS: Rise above the trivia of daily living and take the bird’s eye view of your life at the moment. Getting far enough away to see everything in perspective can be enormously helpful. You can make better decisions and become less obsessed by what may not be hugely important. Don’t let other people criticise you and don’t let yourself criticise others, because Saturn has a nasty habit of thinking it’s being realistic when in fact what’s happening is it’s looking only to the flaws.
|PISCES: The New Moon in the deepest part of your chart could pass you by without any noticeable effect. But if you give yourself space to ponder you may be able to answer some questions which have been bothering you recently. Nothing superficial will really help. You need to get right down to the nitty gritty. You may find there’s someone around now who could be helping you in a rather straightforward way. They’re trying to put across things which you need to know.
