IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY:
A Venus-Jupiter link on your birthday means you will be somewhat restless over the coming 12 months. Try to have a specific goal or aim whenever you are on the move, which will be often. Make your energy work for you.
ARIES (March 21 – April 20):
There are so many things you want to change but with Jupiter moving retrograde through your sign you would be wise to resist the urge to make the kind of changes that others don’t like. Compromise is a must today.
TAURUS (April 21 – May 21):
Your sixth sense should also be telling you this is not the right time to make a major move of some kind. What happens tomorrow when the moon is new will clear obstacles from your path – then you can really get going.
GEMINI (May 22 – June 21):
Don’t try to avoid confrontation today because this is one of those occasions when no matter how much you try to win others round they won’t want to listen. You might as well be bold and attack the situation head on.
CANCER (June 22 – July 23):
Today’s Venus-Jupiter opposition means you are going to have to make a difficult decision concerning your ambitions. Don’t worry about convincing others that you know your own mind – first you need to convince yourself.
LEO (July 24 – Aug. 23):
Act on the assumption that you are hearing only half the story today. Question what you see and hear and don’t be afraid to challenge accepted wisdom. The only thing that matters is to get at the truth.
VIRGO (Aug. 24 – Sept. 23):
Money matters are likely to be a source of some dispute today and if a friend or work colleague asks for a loan you would be wise to say you are short of cash yourself. If not, you most likely soon will be.
LIBRA (Sept. 24 – Oct. 23):
Make an effort to be nice today, even with people whose only concern seems to be rubbing you up the wrong way. The fact is they feed off negative vibes, so the way to beat them is to be upbeat at all times.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24 – Nov. 22):
You have so much energy at your disposal, but what are you going to do with it all? Physical activity of some kind is probably the best way to channel your Scorpio drive. Make it something high tempo and competitive.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 – Dec. 21):
You need to be aware of your limits. If you take on too much, or take on the wrong person, your efforts will at best come to nothing and might even end in defeat, and that won’t be good for your ego.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 – Jan. 20):
You are always looking for ways to improve your status and reputation but the planets warn your efforts could backfire today, especially if employers and other powerful people think you are being insincere. Don’t try too hard.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 – Feb. 19):
What you want to believe and what it’s wise to believe are likely to be two completely different things today, so be careful. The worst kind of deception is self-deception and even an Aquarius falls prey to it occasionally.
PISCES (Feb. 20 – Mar. 20):
Don’t try to bluff your way through a situation where you don’t have all the facts at your fingertips. You may think you are smart enough to stay out of trouble but if you’re wrong it could be costly. Play safe.
