IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY:
What is your philosophy of life? Do you even have one? If you want to get the most out of the year ahead you need to have a clear idea of what you believe. Only then will your search for happiness and meaning be successful. Get thinking.
ARIES (March 21 – April 20):
You have kept your emotions in check long enough and if you don’t let off some steam soon you may well explode. Find a constructive way to ease the pressure, a way that will inspire other people, not scare them.
TAURUS (April 21 – May 21):
Stand up for what you believe, even though it brings you into conflict with people who don’t share your principles. Be aware though that in their own way they are just as principled as you. There is no ultimate right or wrong.
GEMINI (May 22 – June 21):
The sun in Libra makes you want to speed things up, but not everyone wants to be pushed so hard or so fast. It may be the case today that if you want to move ahead you will have to do so on your own.
CANCER (June 22 – July 23):
When dealing with family feuds it is always a good idea to stay neutral and that is very much the position you need to adopt today. Keep your personal feelings out of it if you want loved ones to trust your advice.
LEO (July 24 – Aug. 23):
Don’t worry if you have fallen behind in your tasks because you will catch up later when your mood shifts and work starts to look attractive again. Be aware of your physical and emotional rhythms – and let them guide you.
VIRGO (Aug. 24 – Sept. 23):
If someone is taking advantage of you then you must do something about it. Don’t worry that you might come on too strong and cause a rift that can never be healed. If it happens it happens – it’s their fault, not yours.
LIBRA (Sept. 24 – Oct. 23):
You may think that you can cut corners and bend rules and get clean away with it, but is that the truth? Chances are it’s wishful thinking. Chances are you’re kidding yourself. Chances are you don’t need to anyway.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24 – Nov. 22):
Just over a week from now a new solar year will begin and all the fears and doubts that have been holding you back will simply fade away. Today though you’ll have more fears to deal with. Deal with them harshly.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 – Dec. 21):
If you are dissatisfied with your lot that’s a good sign. It means you are aware that your life is not as fulfilling as it could be. Use that dissatisfaction to motivate yourself to make changes. And make them big changes – small is not you!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 – Jan. 20):
Strive to stay at least two steps ahead of your rivals. How do you do that? By making sure you are better informed than they are. Don’t ignore anything that you see or hear. There are clues in everything, clues you can use.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 – Feb. 19):
You are on a winning streak and that streak has some way to run, but if you are smart you will also be looking ahead and thinking about how you can consolidate your gains. Do you have friends in high places? If not, get some.
PISCES (Feb. 20 – Mar. 20):
It may be painfully apparent that you have been living beyond your means and must cut back on what you spend, but don’t go from one extreme to the other and deny yourself everything that you enjoy. Some luxuries are also essentials.
