|ARIES: Your critical faculties are well honed which is valuable in checking accuracy, but it can lead to strained relationships at work. You never feel anyone else does things as well as you, so some conflicts may arise. You are appreciating differences and distinctions, which others regard as too trivial to bother about. But it does mean you’ll spot what they overlook, and that can be highly useful. You may find yourself involved in arguments with close companions with angry comments flying through the air.|
|TAURUS: You will be throwing yourself wholeheartedly into sports, love affairs or activities with children. You are not given to subtle hints or understatements. You may be ignoring certain details in your determination to see the broad sweep at the moment. But because of your carefulness and long term vision, you can plan well. Just keep your feet on the ground. You do have a capacity to intuitively understand feelings and emotional situations around you. Just watch you aren’t getting too close to things.
|GEMINI: You need to throw your formidable energy into DIY or reorganising otherwise the poor family will continually be getting told off for their shortcomings. Watch you are not getting too close to subjects to be able to see them clearly. You may be taking too narrow a view of one situation, selecting some facts and ignoring others for no good reason. Just briefly there might be a rather peculiar atmosphere in close relationships. You won’t always be clear what’s real and what is fantasy.
|CANCER: You are not taking hostages in arguments at the moment and will not put up with anyone who gets in your way. You are making it your business to know everything about everybody at the moment, since you want to have all the necessary facts at your disposal. You will be charming everyone in sight. Able to communicate happily and harmoniously with almost everyone at a social level, you will be even more popular than usual and welcome wherever you go.|
|LEO: Good food, drink, beautiful clothes and house are all important to your sense of well-being at the moment. Though do watch you are not being too materialistic in your approach since that could slow down your progress. The Moon at odds with Jupiter is not likely to be causing any problems. But you will notice that you want everything at home and in your emotional life to be totally wonderful, which could set you up for a minor let down. Be realistic.
|VIRGO: You’ll be keen to cut through confusion and indecision and get straight to the point. Luckily you will not bear grudges for long at the moment but fly ahead putting momentary squalls behind you. Your boredom threshold is low, and you may jump into action, just to avoid the tedious process of making considered decisions which take account of all the facts. You will find yourself flying into action at home. You are determined to sweep the furniture and the family into shape.
|LIBRA: You will be sensitive to suffering and wanting to work behind the scenes to help or care for those who are needy. You may be feeling too sensitive on one score and interpret as criticisms things that others say which were never meant to hurt. Don’t over react until you have checked out what was intended. Try to give yourself space just to chill out, listen to good music or daydream happily in a quiet corner. So try to step back when you can.
IF ITS YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be chatty, restless, busy behind the scenes. At times you’ll need patience since certain projects will take longer to come together than you expect. Just keep pulling strings and be persistent. Luckily help will come when you need it most and gradually your self-esteem will rise through the year. One close partnership will need more space since both of you want the freedom to suit yourselves. Nearer next birthday you’ll soar.
|SCORPIO: This is the time to make long-term plans and see where you are going over the next few weeks and months. Setting your goals is crucial since you do not want to drift around aimlessly in the days ahead. You have a sharp, fast moving mind now. Remember to write things down since you can be absent-minded, forgetting your brilliant inspirations as soon as you have them. Because you are so relaxed in yourself you are able to put companions at their ease.
|SAGITTARIUS: You will be enthusiastic in promoting your strongly held beliefs. Riding into battle, waving the banner of your pet causes is one of your main hobbies at the moment. You see no reason to pull your verbal punches now, so mates may need a thick skin. Tone down your some of your comments. You will have strong hunches which will probably turn out to be accurate. At points you may feel like a small volcano about to overflow. Try to avoid hurting sensitive feelings.|
|CAPRICORN: At the moment if you are off someone, then you are really off. As far as you are concerned there will be no switching back on again. But remember you won’t always feel this intensely and there may come a point in a few weeks time when you wish you hadn’t been so abrupt. You may be imagining all sorts of horrors that are never actually going to happen. What you need is to get more grounded, better organised and hang onto common sense.|
|AQUARIUS: In your personal life, your need to be in charge could be leading to disagreements, though you will tend not to bring confrontations out into the open. You are fairly intense at the moment, maybe more stubborn than usual in discussions. You will have to confront those who share joint responsibilities with you, to sort out better agreements. Your mind will be wandering quite a bit so do try to think before you speak. Write down bullet points before leaping into discussions.|
|PISCES: With Mars in your chart area of co-operation and close relationships you are throwing yourself into joint or romantic encounters with a good deal of gusto. Your lively way of expressing yourself and desire to keep everyone happy is doing wonders for your popularity. Just watch you are not too sugary sweet and sentimental at times, saying things just to please, or keep the peace. This will be an exceptionally creative period, so try to give some of your talents an airing.
