IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY:
Mars and Jupiter combine on your birthday in such a way that you can expect to be challenged constantly over the next 12 months. Is that a good thing? Yes it is. You will quickly learn how much more you are capable of – much more.
ARIES (March 21 – April 20):
You’ll do anything to escape a situation you find restrictive in the extreme but the planets warn this is not a good time to make your bid for freedom. In fleeing one prison you may find yourself trapped by another. Bide your time.
TAURUS (April 21 – May 21):
You sometimes find it hard to share information, even when you know that you should, but today’s cosmic influences urge you to be open with everyone you meet, especially if there is money at stake. Honesty is by far the best policy.
GEMINI (May 22 – June 21):
Be warned: if you try to force your will on other people today your strategy will backfire and it could be you who ends up being moved around like a pawn or a puppet on a string. Live and let live – it’s always the best way.
CANCER (June 22 – July 23):
Make sure your dreams are realistic – that is, make sure you have at least some chance of reaching the goals you set yourself. Some things are simply beyond your powers to manifest at the moment, so don’t get carried away.
LEO (July 24 – Aug. 23):
No matter how hard you try you can’t seem to get through to certain people – it’s as if there is a wall between you that cannot be moved. Perhaps you should take the hint and stop trying so hard. It’s hardly the end of the world.
VIRGO (Aug. 24 – Sept. 23):
You may be tempted to move things along at a faster pace today but is that such a good idea? With Mars at right angles to Jupiter, planet of excess, speed does not necessarily equate with success. Control your impatience.
LIBRA (Sept. 24 – Oct. 23):
Setbacks and delays are to be expected over the next 24 hours, and people’s nerves are sure to be frayed. Don’t add to a negative situation by losing your cool as well. You’re a Libra, you’re supposed to be easygoing.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24 – Nov. 22):
Don’t let your guard down today because there are people out there who are waiting for a chance to take advantage of you, emotionally as well as financially. Stay alert to what is going on around you. Read the signs, and heed them.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 – Dec. 21):
Today’s Mars-Jupiter link will make it difficult for you to get motivated – either that or you will try too hard and act too quickly and make a costly mistake. The working week doesn’t have to start on Monday. Come back tomorrow!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 – Jan. 20):
On the one hand you are looking forward to starting something new, but on the other hand you are fearful that you will get it wrong and look silly. Don’t worry: the planets indicate it will be a huge success – with huge rewards.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 – Feb. 19):
Make the best possible job of what you are asked to do today, even if it is something you have never attempted before. Act as if there is not the slightest doubt that you will be brilliant – and that’s exactly what you will be.
PISCES (Feb. 20 – Mar. 20):
Has someone in a position of power got it in for you? Maybe, but even if they have there is no reason why you should be worried. Jupiter in your sign will protect you against all enemies, be they real or imagined.
