|ARIES: When you get the chance to have a moment in peace and quiet, you can think about personal matters which have been tucked into the background. If you let things come to the surface in your mind you can really sort them out. Anyone who makes you feel controlled at work or in your community activities is clearly not going to be popular. It may take an upheaval before you free yourself up to act as you please, but it will be worth it.
|TAURUS: If you can speak to companions in a cooler, more rational way, they’re likely to connect better. You may get too close to subjects under discussion or just chatter incessantly about nothing very much. You know you need to re-think some of your highly personal beliefs, and find a different perspective on your life. If you are involved in rather heated discussions at the moment treat them less as a nuisance and more as a challenge to see which of your views needs refining.
|GEMINI: Your need for security may be pushing you one way, and your desire for extravagances is pulling you the other. Is there something you are not admitting to yourself? Pluto around in the deepest area of your chart makes you fascinated by what runs below the surface in all the highly charged situations in life, around money and love. But it has an odd way of working, which sometimes makes you repress your stronger feelings because you are wary of opening up.
|CANCER: Try to put yourself into other people’s shoes when you can. That way you know what you want and what they want as well. There could be a point where you get yourself all stewed up about something that basically isn’t quite as important as you’re making it out to be. You are not taking your feelings lightly now. You are on people or off them, either adoring or loathing. There’s no middle way. Jealousy could be a tiny problem. Try to loosen up.|
|LEO: You won’t feel like socialising, just temporarily, but there are other activities which attract. Anything mystical will hold your attention since you’re tuned into deeper levels of awareness. You’ll also be very helpful and compassionate as far as others are concerned. Looking after your body is a priority since you do feel pressured by demands on your time and energy. Constantly pushing against difficulties can be draining on your energy reserves. So see if there isn’t an easier way round certain work situations.
|VIRGO: It’s not a good idea just now to make up your mind instantly about one plan until you’ve had a chance to discuss it with everyone around. Just listen carefully, sift and sort out all the ideas you have been given, and then when the moment is ready, you will know what is going to be workable. You have ambitions to be someone rather grand but you must use your artistic talents to achieve and then you will gain the status you seek.
|LIBRA: You will be more emotional in public than usual, which may feel strange, but it lets other people see the more human side of you. So you will attract more sympathy, and at the same time be more sensitive to what’s going on around at work. Maybe you are in one of your periodic upheavals at home, trying to clear out whatever you feel is blocking or frustrating you. Maybe you don’t understand exactly what is tying you down or standing in your way.
IF ITS YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be a time to stand back and value reflection and space for yourself. There will be tensions at home or within the family so you’ll need to act as peacemaker without being overly submissive. Close partners may be unpredictable or unco-operative so let them go their own way for a while. Don’t over stress yourself with too much work. Nearer next birthday your confidence will soar and resources will be drawn to you.
|SCORPIO: You’ll be exceptionally restless which will make it tricky to settle down to anything requiring concentration. Your intuition will be working well, so you can look ahead and know a little of what is coming ahead. You can be a touch too forceful in expressing yourself now and may get into arguments, partly because of your inability to take in the other point of view. But it could also be that you don’t understand how intense you sound. Lighten up a little.
|SAGITTARIUS: Just briefly you could be a little possessive about material things or about things from the past. Be sentimental but don’t hang on too tightly, or dig your heels in too much. You do need certainly to stand firm until you find the answers you are looking for but then let go, roll with the flow. You do want to earn more at the moment though there may be some obstacles in your way, though you are developing a real capacity for managing money.|
|CAPRICORN: Don’t go leaping into a situation too emotionally and then find you don’t really want to see it through to the end, because with the Moon across the zodiac from your sign you can sometimes lose courage about things. It’s a fragile kind of energy. So it will be important to aim yourself towards nice, happy, reassuring mates. You are coming across as a strong personality, but secretive and unfathomable as well. No one quite knows what makes you tick, including yourself possibly.|
|AQUARIUS: It’s a rather self-sacrificing kind of time which means you have to put aside your own need for frivolity and indulgence just to make sure that everyone else is getting what they want. So polish your halo and console yourself with the thought that you will get your rewards a little later on. You are having quite a profound, almost unseen, influence on the people around you because the strength of your personality. Maybe you are stronger than you give yourself credit for.
|PISCES: Try not to be too possessive. Maybe you do feel like clutching and clinging a little more than usual, but it won’t be wise. Have your entertainment and enjoyment without pinning close mates down, otherwise they may want to skip off elsewhere. You are finding that friendships and team relationships are becoming more intense now, which has its upside and its downside. At times Pluto does give rise to power struggles or jealousy. But the true bonds in your life will become stronger.
