IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY:
You can and you will accomplish more in the next 12 months than you did in the last, but only if you stop trying to gain other people’s approval. You are who you are and you do what you do, so be yourself and be happy – and successful.
ARIES (March 21 – April 20):
There is no point getting angry with people who let you down. Cosmic activity in one of the more emotional areas of your chart means that loved ones will take what you say seriously, so say only things that boost their self-esteem. You’ll benefit too.
TAURUS (April 21 – May 21):
Others may say you are avoiding your problems, and maybe you are, but this is one of those days when avoiding your problems may turn out to be the best way of dealing with them. The world will turn regardless of what you do.
GEMINI (May 22 – June 21):
You will be either far too generous or far too selfish today – there seems to be no middle ground with you at the moment. If someone asks for a handout you would be wise to plead poverty – then help them out in purely practical ways.
CANCER (June 22 – July 23):
You may be eager to prove to the world that you have what it takes but if you do too much too soon there is a danger you will grind to a halt later when your energy and motivation begin to wane. Start slow, and keep going.
LEO (July 24 – Aug. 23):
Focus on one goal at a time and don’t allow yourself to think about anything else until you have reached it. If you chop and change between objectives today you may end up achieving nothing at all, and that would be a shame.
VIRGO (Aug. 24 – Sept. 23):
Friends and family are even more demanding than usual, which makes it even more necessary than usual to keep some special time for yourself. You don’t have to be on duty every minute of every hour of every day.
LIBRA (Sept. 24 – Oct. 23):
Your number one aim now is to make sure that the balance between your home life and your working life is stable and enjoyable. If there are things you want to do that you don’t have time for then adjustments clearly need to be made.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24 – Nov. 22):
Pluto in the communications area of your chart seems to be bringing an annoying amount of criticism your way. Some of it may be worth listening to but most of it can safely be tuned out. If you don’t know the difference, just tune it all out.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 – Dec. 21):
Whatever else you do over the next 24 hours, don’t panic. Others may be preaching doom and gloom and the end of the world but their sort have been around since the dawn of time – and we’re still here. Worry is for losers.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 – Jan. 20):
A friend or family member will offer to take some of your workload off your hands today, which is nice of them, but can you be sure they will do a good job? If not, it might be better to decline politely and do it yourself.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 – Feb. 19):
Follow your instincts today, even if it puts you at odds with everyone else. You have never been the sort to worry about what the world thinks of you and there is no good reason why you should start now. Trust your gut feelings.
PISCES (Feb. 20 – Mar. 20):
There is no point complaining that some individuals don’t know how to behave. In fact the more of a noise you make about it the more likely it is they will do things that annoy you. Use them as a means to practice self-control.
