|ARIES: It might be a good idea to go off and do the paperwork sort out the budget if you can be bothered. Then you’ll be in a better position to know exactly where you are and what the surplus for spending realistically is. A little generosity will be long remembered. You’ll feel more buoyant than for a while. You genuinely want to be of service and make everyone’s life easier. Having the right support around you will mean that you can make faster progress.|
|TAURUS: Ask for what you need, which is more pampering, indulging and feeling comforted. The Moon around in your own sign is the mothering energy but you definitely want to be on the receiving not the giving end. Being out in the centre of activities at parties or in games will find you absolutely in your element. Your popularity is soaring with social mates, so there is no sense in holding back. Allow yourself to step forward with as much panache as you can muster.|
|GEMINI: You probably don’t want to be too open, since everyone around seems preoccupied. You may feel they are ignoring you or indifferent to your feelings. But you shouldn’t take it so personally. Just watch you are not getting stuck in the past only seeing the bright side, and finding it difficult to let go. Try to stand up for yourself if certain family members are taking your good nature too much for granted, even to the extent of costing you more.|
|CANCER: You want protection and advice about the long term. Obviously no one makes your mind up but you. But that doesn’t mean to say testing out ideas and picking up more information won’t be useful. There should be opportunities galore around you for the taking and your bouncy self confidence will certainly attract positive responses from everyday people, like workmates or neighbours. You could even be in the mood to take up new studies. Your curiosity will send you in search of better answers.|
|LEO: You will be focusing on your working situation in a way that says that you want more recognition for your talents. So it really does mean that you’ve got to put your energy into doing things in a new and different way, really get out of the rut and make sure that other people are being well looked after. You should be earning more or at least you’re definitely finding that your prospects are brighter. But try to hang onto a little of it.|
|VIRGO: Aim to stretch yourself in at least one activity. If you can’t travel literally, you’ll travel in your mind. Get out the holiday brochures, read books with an exotic flavour, do anything that takes your mind off whatever is standard, expected and the same as yesterday. You are inspiring a great deal of trust in close companions, though sometimes they think you are a touch over optimistic. Maybe you do look on the bright side of life, and promise more than you can deliver.
IF ITS YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be upbeat, optimistic and you’ll sense the universe is being more generous to you. Better relationships in general and resources will be drawn to you. Though you’ll find one close partner rather preoccupied or evasive. Leave them to their own devices. Joint finances will be rather unsettled, sometimes great, sometimes not so. Save in the good times. You’ll need to work hard at home to reorganise and sort out emotional tensions.
|LIBRA: Insights or events occur now that make you think about the deeper mysteries of life and love. You wonder what it is actually all about and how you can transform it. Just stand steady for a little while, to understand what is going on and how you can make sense of it. Then you can scamper back to normality again. As you gradually come to terms with your own hidden needs, you have a better understanding of those around who may be struggling slightly.|
|SCORPIO: Since you may be feeling just a bit more vulnerable than usual, it’s important that you give to help others settle and then in turn they are more likely to do the same for you. It’s a sort of each for each time. Friendships are working well now and you should be mixing confidently with large numbers of people at work and in your leisure activities. This is an optimistic time when you can look ahead and see really rosy glows on the horizon.|
|SAGITTARIUS: Keeping your stamina high will be crucial now, since you are being landed with a good many chores. So watch your diet, and give yourself things that are of positive benefit rather than pull your energy further down. Success should be coming your way more easily than usual so you might as well make hay while the sun shines. Praise and a growing appreciation of your talents and personality at work or out in the community will have you beaming with pleasure.|
|CAPRICORN: Be a little theatrical and try cracking a few jokes. There’s no sense in letting things slide by without making a definite statement in what you do. This is a time for broad thinking. Your confidence will be soaring. Let yourself write or speak out if you feel the urge. But also realise that your ideas may not all be practical. You may discover when you try to put your plans into action some way down the line that some have to be abandoned.|
|AQUARIUS: If you are a little wary of being on your own, put a bit of energy and effort into finding someone nice you can wrap yourself around. In the last resort wear your most comfortable clothes, snuggle up in a comfortable armchair with a good book. Suddenly the world seems a luckier place, so you can expect money to flow your way with less effort than you might have expected. Those close will be more generous to you than they have been.|
|PISCES: You’re moving smartly around a busy schedule, with more comings and goings, conversations, meetings and general chit chat than usual. You will be more aware of everyday contacts like neighbours, work mates, maybe even brothers and sisters. It’s a real grasshopper mood. You want people around you now who share your broader interests in life. Emotional partners do seem to be in better humour, and happy to fit in. At work as well you are attracting the kind of support and enthusiastic connections.|
