IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY:
Don’t burden yourself with too many plans and promises on your birthday. Take each day as it comes over the next 12 months and, when it is done, wish it a fond farewell. Each and every day can and should be a new beginning.
ARIES (March 21 – April 20):
Others can be in a downbeat mood if they so wish but you don’t see the point. Whatever problems you may have in your life they can wait a few days until you are ready to deal with them. In the meantime, have fun!
TAURUS (April 21 – May 21):
Is a partner or loved one telling you lies? Maybe they are – the evidence sure points in that direction – but is this really the best time to confront them? Put your doubts and differences aside and make the most of the festive season.
GEMINI (May 22 – June 21):
Someone whose support you tend to rely on will be difficult to get hold of today, but you don’t need them. You have everything it takes to make the best of your current situation – in fact others will come to you for support.
CANCER (June 22 – July 23):
You may think you can break the rules and get away with it and, who knows, maybe you can – but is it worth the risk. If it goes wrong the atmosphere over the holiday period will be frosty to say the least. Play safe.
LEO (July 24 – Aug. 23):
Your logic circuits may tell you that certain things are not possible but at this time of year miracles are possible. You may not entirely believe that but act as if you do and it’s quite likely you will work wonders.
VIRGO (Aug. 24 – Sept. 23):
There is no point making a fuss about something you don’t have the power to change. Besides, if your rivals see that it’s annoying you they will go all out to do it even more. It’s no big deal. Put it out of your head.
LIBRA (Sept. 24 – Oct. 23):
It might be wise to keep your opinions to yourself over the next couple of days, especially if you want a peaceful festive break. Others won’t take kindly to you pointing out their failings, obvious though they might be.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24 – Nov. 22):
Everyone makes mistakes – yes, even a Scorpio – so don’t beat yourself up about something you got wrong. Compared to most people you get things right more often than not, so forgive yourself whatever failing you’re now lamenting.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 – Dec. 21):
Why do you impose so many limits on yourself? Why do you have to be perfect all the time? Whatever the reason (assuming there is a reason) cut yourself some slack today. Try imagining you’re human like everyone else.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 – Jan. 20):
You may be extraordinarily ambitious but even you can ease off a bit at this time of year. In fact, if you relax physically and mentally over the next few days you’ll come up with some great ideas for the new year.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 – Feb. 19):
You may not be able to put your feelings into words today but your body language will tell others what they need to know. Besides, mere words may be inadequate when it comes to conveying the intensity of your emotions.
PISCES (Feb. 20 – Mar. 20):
Don’t worry if you find it hard to concentrate today. At this time of year you have the perfect excuse to let your mind wander – there’s just so much going on. Live in and for the moment – and cherish the moments you share with others.
