|ARIES: You may be indulging slightly more than usual in rich and sweet food, and rather less inclined to take exercise. But at least you should be feeling physically less over stretched, as long as you do not let your appetite run rampant you’ll be fine. Paradoxically you are tending to throw your emotional needs into work at the moment, and can be a little stand-offish on social occasions. Others find you reserved but don’t always realise quite how pre-occupied you really are.|
|TAURUS: You may have a twitch of jealousy or possessiveness if loved ones look the other way. Your feelings are running more strongly at the moment which can be heart-warming though it can also make you a bit more demanding. Still if you don’t ask, you may not get. Romantically upfront, you will head for what you want, and will not be backward about stating your fancy. You may be a little accident prone since you are feeling more reckless than usual, looking for adventure.
|GEMINI: Home is where your heart is since you adore nothing more at the moment than being on your own territory, surrounded by the family and close friends. Entertaining at home suits you better than being out and about at social events. More sensitive and emotional than usual, you want happy family relations and a peaceful domestic existence. You will have an intuitive feel for whatever is happening, but you may over react, and feel hurt by even the slightest whiff of criticism.
|CANCER: Sharing your deeper emotions is not easy at the moment. There is safety and security in numbers for you so you are aiming for a wide social circle, rather than exclusive twosomes. You want to have an escape route handy, especially when boredom sets in. Work mates could get edgy if you are too tactless. Watch a tendency to run too fast, which makes you a little accident prone. Your tendency of blaming others for getting in your way won’t go down too well.|
|LEO: Anything you can do to make yourself feel beautiful will keep you in good spirits. Maybe you are trying to compensate a touch for a lack you feel elsewhere. But don’t muddle love and money and assume if you are not being given lavish presents that you are not really valued. Though you will be more stubborn than usual, slow to make decisions, and maybe also a little irritable. Your patience will give you the strength to push for what you want.
|VIRGO: Flamboyantly direct and shamelessly charming, you are on good form. Even quite competitive when it comes to winning your heart’s desire. Though your mood is swinging from hot to indifferent fairly quickly. What you really want is peace, bliss and harmony around, so you are trying to iron out problems, act as a peacemaker, and maybe in the process not stand up for your rights. But as long as you watch that pitfall, your natural charm is working wonders, putting others at ease.|
|LIBRA: You really want love to be like the movies, all bliss and no rough edges. Just don’t allow your dreams to make you too dissatisfied with the reality of what you have. An overly strong need for perfection can make you hesitate to commit yourself, when really what is on offer is solid and substantial. Not in a competitive mood you may sometimes fail to take the decisive step which would win you the argument. But really you’re happy to hand over credit elsewhere.
IF ITS YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be chatty, restless and scattered but you’d really be best to stand back and give yourself space. You won’t be as sociable or as romantic as usual but only for a while. Pamper yourself in the quiet moments and avoid getting pulled into family tangles. Be persistent in getting your viewpoint across but not confrontational. Nearer next birthday you’ll bounce out revived and raring to go with favourable winds blowing behind you.
|SCORPIO: Don’t hide away your oddball streak, since you’ll be all the more loved because of your originality. Your friendship circle is wider than usual now, with enough exciting and different personalities around to suit your every mood. You have a wonderful knack of putting others at their ease, so you are more than welcome wherever you go. But you’ll be demanding elbow room. You won’t put up with jealousy in any form and will run a mile at the first whiff off possessiveness.|
|SAGITTARIUS: Check out your self-esteem. Somehow you feel you have to earn being accepted at the moment. Only by being successful will you be valued. Understand you are loveable for just being you. If others can’t see that then they are not worth having around. You very much want to be looked up to and admired now, so you are putting a great deal of stress on how you look, sprucing up your outer appearance. Stay close to what you really feel on the inside.|
|CAPRICORN: Even if you can’t travel instantly to exotic places with loved ones, you can always dream and plan. Your heart is definitely yearning for the far blue horizons and paradise beaches. Try to add a touch of the colourful to your social activities, since you want to add a touch of spice to your off duty hours. You’ll head straight to the heart of the matter and could be candid to the point of bluntness. Don’t try to force others into accepting your viewpoint.|
|AQUARIUS: Your passions are running hot and strong. Maybe you are keeping them well hidden, but you are definitely looking for an adventurous emotional life. Whatever or whoever you have in mind, you will plot and plan to make your dreams come true. Deeply secretive, you really won’t give much away. Neither will you easily forgive and forget if anyone lets you down at the moment. You will want to live life at a profound level and don’t care for anything too frivolous.
|PISCES: Socially you are on top form, charming the birds off the trees and feeling extremely popular. You’ll say what you think will please, not necessarily what you think or feel, which could make you seem a touch insincere, though you are well intentioned. Though there may be heated encounters along the way since you will tend to attract yourself to competitive companions at the moment. Even your nearest and dearest will seem rather outspoken at times, so you may have to keep the peace.
