|ARIES: The Moon is at odds with Venus though it will hardly cause a flicker of bother. You will be keen to keep the peace, and want all your encounters to be rather blissful. You don’t want anything rough edged, or gritty, unpleasant or stretching. Though try not to boss loved ones around since they will not take it kindly. You are throwing your energy into dramatic gestures and rather flamboyant language. You will feel passionately enthusiastic about the better things of life.|
|TAURUS: At points you may feel like a small volcano about to overflow. Try to avoid hurting sensitive feelings. Maybe at the moment you are not at your most sensitive, and friends really need nurturing and protecting not railroaded into over hasty action. You will be great at rebuilding, do-it-yourself, reorganising and generally racing around to maintain order. But you may also come across as bossy at home, and over intense, so you can turn your intimate surroundings into a bit of a battlefield.|
|GEMINI: This is a passive not an active time, when you will need some time for reflection. You may overspend on luxury items for home but they will make you feel good. Just don’t go too wild compensating for what you feel you lack elsewhere. Your energy and your competitiveness is going into communication. So you are talking faster than usual. Your working routines will be speeded up. Short distance journeys and a great many stimulating conversations will keep your adrenalin flowing faster.|
|CANCER: If you can channel your over abundance of red hot energy in constructive directions you could achieve a great deal. Try your hand at practical chores but watch that you are not accident prone. No one will easily push you off track once you know where you are aiming. Your staying power is greater than usual at the moment and others will find you dependable. You will be keen to make more money than usual. A rather flamboyant lifestyle will appeal to you.|
|LEO: You will find yourself flying into action at home, determined to sweep the furniture and the family into shape. But beware a tendency to be a little too fierce. Companions will admire your bravery though they may question your common sense. You may be a touch tactless but you are getting things done. You will find yourself being more assertive, competitive and downright aggressive at points. Your blood is up and you intend that nothing should be allowed to get in your way.|
|VIRGO: You will tend to over eat since you want to pamper yourself and perhaps feel that loved ones are being unappreciative, so you have to spoil yourself. You will also avoid arguments since you really cannot be bothered with hassle, but you could end up not standing up for yourself enough with the family or loved ones. You may feel vaguely uneasy and rather held back. You must throw your energy into behind-the-scenes activity or learn to pull strings a little more subtly.
IF ITS YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be a time when the winds of good fortune are blowing behind you. The right people will be drawn to you and there should be a sense of generosity from the universe. Not everything will be perfect clear. One close relationship will be going through an uncertain phase. Effort will be needed at home to keep the peace and put changes in place. Joint finances will need care since there will be larger lump sums coming and going than usual.
|LIBRA: Even close companions may find it difficult to know quite what runs below the surface in you. But one old resentment has finally been put to rest. You will be independent but happy to be around friends as long as everyone is tolerant. You will get irritated by anyone who tries to take your freedom away. Mars is in your chart area which rules group efforts, and future plans for a while so you are throwing your energy into team activities at work.|
|SCORPIO: You will have strong feelings which you are keeping firmly to yourself at the moment. But because you are so relaxed in yourself you are able to put companions at their ease. You could work well as a go-between with others. You will aim to gain a more solid reputation, and will jealously guard your position. You will be working hard to achieve your ambitions at work and out in the world. Just do not forget your feelings in order to succeed.|
|SAGITTARIUS: You may find yourself involved in noisy confrontations with family members or close companions with angry comments flying through the air. Although you will not want to be petty or devious, you will perhaps need to be a little bit more diplomatic. Maybe you have an urge to be free, so you dislike interference. You will be a great crusader for your pet beliefs and enthusiastic about broadcasting your ideas to a wider cross section of friends than usual for a while.|
|CAPRICORN: The Moon in tricky aspect to Venus just briefly may make getting out of bed more difficult than usual since you want to pamper yourself. Your lazy steak will be more obvious which if you’re normally too active, won’t be a bad thing. With Mars in your house of confidential matters, money and major changes for a few weeks, you are acting in a much more secretive way than usual. You’ll be determined to fight for your rights in cash and emotional matters.|
|AQUARIUS: You will be able to sort out quite a few situations which have been bugging you for a few days. A great time for cleaning out, re-organising and generally unravelling muddles. It puts you back in control. Though when you do decide to take a stand you’ll be clear, cool and cutting. You will be cross with companions who are acting unfairly and appear to be getting away with it. Partners will be rather irritable but you may also find yourself snapping and sniping.|
|PISCES: Every detail does not need to be in the right place. So ease up and accept imperfections, both your own and others. You will achieve a good deal of fine quality, though you rarely blow your own trumpet, preferring instead to take pride in a job well done. Your nose will be firmly stuck to the grindstone as duty comes first. You will have to push indulgences and pleasure activities to one side to concentrate on becoming more efficient and better organised.|
