ARIES: When you get gloomy, remember you could be taking a rather narrow viewpoint. Saturn is around which can make you doubting or suspicious. That damps down your enthusiasm and spontaneity. Watch for a tendency to become too escapist, looking for ways out of the boring elements of your everyday world. This will not be helpful. You know there are more things of value than what you can see, touch or feel, but you need to stay connected all the same.
TAURUS: Your stamina, persistence and determination are fairly amazing at the moment so you should be able to achieve more than most. When you decide to exert your willpower, nothing much will distract you from your goals, though what will be getting in the way of fast progress is that you don’t have a sensible plan for what lies ahead. Maybe it is a time to drift a little. When in doubt, as the old saying goes, do nothing at all.
GEMINI: IF IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be filled with highs and some not so great moments. You’ll be chatty, indulgent, scattered, rarely bored but not always clear about what you want to achieve. Luckily family members will rally round to make you relax. One close partner may be a touch cool, so let them pursue their own activities. Friends will be adventurous, unpredictable and point you in the right direction. From September you’ll be on social top form.
CANCER: At work you’ll pride yourself on being never pushy but always there. But you tend to be negative in your approach, finding flaws in yourself and others. Stop nit picking and enjoy more. Your head may be in the clouds part of the time which will draw you towards odd beliefs. Be wary of putting others on a pedestal since no one will match up to your ideals. You will end up feeling let down if you invest too much hope in someone having all the right answers.
LEO: You will need to work a lot harder than usual at the moment to release your feelings and indeed your creative talents. Try not to turn everything you do into a chore. One problem may be that you are feeling a little disappointed or let down, especially where your joint finances and intimate emotional relationships are concerned. Maybe you need to be a bit more discriminating, since with these influences around you can attract yourself to not very reliable partners.
VIRGO: You will be insisting that everyone at home sticks precisely to your rules. Just don’t get too rigid about everything. Life needs a little relaxation and even sloppiness around to make it feel comfortable. Neptune around in your opposite sign can bring in spiritual connections or offer you links with creative or highly sympathetic companions. This can be lovely, but it can also mean you find them rather inaccessible at times when they disappear into their own inner world.
LIBRA: Give yourself a shake and don’t give in to self-doubt where your ability to communicate is concerned. You’ve got it into your head that you’re less bright or less good with words than you would like, and get too easily discouraged when others do not listen to your opinions. Be persistent. If your energy is low you will be exploring subtle ways of improving your physical stamina. Just try to avoid getting caught up in odd diets or other cures which have not been solidly tested.
SCORPIO: Maybe you do need to loosen up a bit and understand that your insecurity about being short of money is, in part, an over rigid attitude. You could let go slightly without going bankrupt overnight. Luckily, you are in a blissfully romantic mood, looking for that wonderful love but you may be a touch confused as lovers turn out to be weaker than you imagined. Perhaps they are looking to you as a saviour when really you could do with a prop for yourself.
SAGITTARIUS: You’ll be quietly determined. Sticking out difficult situations is your great strength now though you may find it more difficult to be flexible, or softening your approach. At home you will not find it easy to bring emotional differences into the open but it is important that you try. Be as honest as you possibly can be. Do not tell little white lies even for the sake of keeping the peace or being nice. Try to make loved ones be straightforward as well.
CAPRICORN: You may be living too much in the past, worrying over old resentments. With Saturn in the sign before yours, you tend to dwell on what can’t be changed. Give yourself a shake and see what you can do to be helpful. This may be a difficult time to keep secrets since they seem to slide out into the open unexpectedly. Nor is it the right time to be absolutely blunt or confrontational. Try to lay your cards on the table firmly but tactfully.
AQUARIUS: You’ll be in a muddle over a friendship or a future plans and money may be involved. This will tend to make you less sociable than usual. Try to rely on the friends who are loyal and steadfast. And recognise that you are learning valuable lessons about what true friendship is all about. Part of the problem is that you seem to be vaguer about money than usual, maybe careless. You have to keep your feet firmly on the ground if you are not to make yourself insecure.
PISCES: You’ll be worrying more than one situation merits. Although you are more hard working, reliable and conscientious, you’ll also be overly serious about your responsibilities. Recognise that you’re heading in the right direction with a slow, but steady rise to success if you stick to the straight and narrow. One problem is that everyone seems to give you different feedback or brings out a different strand of your personality. You may become more muddled as you try to put all the pieces of the jigsaw puzzle together.
