|ARIES: There are times to aim for glory and times where being self-sacrificing or of service are the top priority. If you put companions’ needs before your own, you may feel deprived for the moment. But in future you will find the rewards roll in. Just regard this as a foundation laying time. You know this isn’t the most glamorous time of the year at work for you, but it could just be the right circumstances for you to re-organise some of your methods.|
|TAURUS: Don’t expect bells and whistles or neon lights flashing, but be comforted that the emotional understanding that begins now should not fade as long as you give it tender loving care. Just allow a new facet of your personality to shine out without apology or self-consciousness. Most of us hide away parts of ourselves we think other might not like or approve. Throw away your inhibitions and just express who you are and what you feel. The right people will respond very positively.|
|GEMINI: There may be nothing amazing happening, but in your heart of hearts you know that certain adjustments would make you feel more content. Ask for what you need. If there have been any family rifts or differences recently, this could just be the time to wipe the slate clean and start again. Don’t wait to be approached. Try to reach out and see where you can spread a little harmony around. More for your sake than anything else, you want peace and calm.
|CANCER: Try to make contact as much as possible with everyday people, whether work mates, neighbours, or even brothers and sisters. Sometimes you speed by without giving them much thought but a little attention now will help to bring you closer to those who are an essential part of your life. Everyone around knows your heart is in the right place but they may not be entirely clear about what you are driving at, so try to collect your thoughts before you dash into discussions.|
|LEO: Cast your eye six months or even a year ahead and work out where you want to be at that point financially as well as emotionally. Once you have set your goals, you then need to work out a practical plan for fulfilling them. You can’t just hope it all shakes down, give yourself a push. You will be feeling more intense, perhaps slightly stubborn now, over cash or other matters. But sometimes you have to take a stand. But mull everything over carefully.|
|VIRGO: Every year around your birthday, the New Moon comes round into your own sign which nudges you into fulfilling all the ambitions which somehow got left behind in the previous 12 months. This one is more powerful than usual being a Solar Eclipse. So put your thinking cap on and get cracking. Nothing spectacular will happen but this is when you sow the seeds of new ideas. You will want to do anything which makes you feel centre of attention and a bit special.
IF ITS YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be a time to get focussed. Get your head and heart together to decide where you want to go from now onwards. You’re at a crossroads and need to be clear about which path to follow. It’s your life so should be your choice. Your confidence will be high and luck will be on your side. Though you’ll need to push hard to get the changes you want put in place at home. One close partner will be preoccupied so leave them to their own devices.
|LIBRA: New life in nature always starts way below the ground. Think of bulbs growing, or indeed seeds. It may be a while before you see the surface part and the new growth emerge into the light of day. There is a new phase beginning at work but nothing too obvious for a while, so have patience. Just be clear that you need to put your wholehearted attention behind the scenes into whatever you want to put into place over the coming months.|
|SCORPIO: If you have been feeling lethargic or indeed 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 a more than you imagine. It just requires focus and persistence. All those new plans you have been mulling and muddling over in recent days can now be given a sensible push. Don’t stop at thinking. Make a few decisions and put them into action.
|SAGITTARIUS: There is a saying that what is high becomes low and vice versa. You are in a more prominent position at work at the moment or in your community activities, but you need to ensure when this phase of a few high flying weeks is over, that you have plans up your sleeve for the next year. You really want to give your reputation a boost and get the recognition which your talents deserve. But you know that you cannot rest on your laurels.
|CAPRICORN: Who cares if your ideas are not entirely practical at the moment? There are times when you have to let your imagination soar and think big. Whatever is not feasible will become obvious in a few weeks time and you can then quietly drop it. If you aim for Mars and fall short, you will still reach further than if you hadn’t reached out at all. Your outlook does not remain static from childhood to old age. You constantly discard what no longer fits.|
|AQUARIUS: Sometimes it is a good idea to open up discreetly to a mate you know you can totally trust. Only by understanding what brought you to this point can you hope to change it in future. Your feelings are probably more intense than usual. But maybe that tells you what you need to know about one intimate partnership. If you can lay your cards on the table in private, firmly but tactfully, then you are likely to get better understandings in future.|
|PISCES: If you have been hanging onto a mate more for protection and stability than for love or mutual respect, then this may be when the light dawns. You’ll just try to gently start pushing yourself and those close to come to better agreements. There is no doubt that you need another half at the moment before you will feel secure in whatever you are doing at play or at work. You may have to give before you get, but it will be worth it.||“>|
