IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY:
You have made your plans and you know what it is you should be doing with your life – all you have to do now is get started. Pluto will give you the power you need to kick-start a more productive phase.
ARIES (March 21 – April 20):
With Mercury linked to Pluto today it may feel as if others have the upper hand, but that need not be the case. Your sense of powerlessness is largely in your mind. In the world at large you’re still a winner.
TAURUS (April 21 – May 21):
The planets will cause a conflict with someone you care about today. That may not sound like good news but deep down you know it is time to bring certain issues into the open where they can be discussed and dealt with.
GEMINI (May 22 – June 21):
The pressure has been building for quite some time and at some stage today it will reach boiling point. Whatever life throws at you over the next 24 hours just pick it up and throw it back. You’re tougher than you look.
CANCER (June 22 – July 23):
You can be somewhat stubborn when the mood takes you and with mind plant Mercury close to Pluto in your opposite sign you won’t give way on anything today, no matter how petty or small. Just remember it works both ways.
LEO (July 24 – Aug. 23):
No amount of compromise will solve the stalemate you find yourself in today, so all you can do is fight for what you believe and hope you come out on top. You will, but you’ve got to be canny about it. Brute force won’t work.
VIRGO (Aug. 24 – Sept. 23):
Different people see things in different ways and if you can accept that today you won’t have too many problems, either at home or at work. You may not like what some people believe in but agree to disagree anyway.
LIBRA (Sept. 24 – Oct. 23):
You must keep a sense of perspective today, especially where domestic issues are concerned, because if you allow annoying situations to get under your skin you may say or do something that makes things worse. Do they really matter?
SCORPIO (Oct. 24 – Nov. 22):
You are sure to be assertive and ambitious today but don’t come on so strong that you put people off. No matter how confident you may be you are going to need friends and allies before the end of the year. Think long-term.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 – Dec. 21):
A money-making opportunity will come at you out of the blue today and hopefully you won’t be too shocked to take advantage of it. Is it a good idea? No it’s not – it’s a great idea, so don’t you dare waste it.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 – Jan. 20):
Don’t go back on a promise you made to a friend or loved one because you’ll regret it if you do. Live up to your obligations and, of course, make sure others live up to theirs too. And don’t make promises so easily in future.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 – Feb. 19):
What happens today may shock you a bit but you should have seen it coming. On the other hand it’s unlikely to be as bad as it first looks, so don’t overreact. Remember it takes all kinds to make a world – including Aquarians!
PISCES (Feb. 20 – Mar. 20):
You will finally discover what has been going on today and it won’t be anywhere near as dreadful as you had imagined. Which is part of your problem: your imagination tends to take over at times. Stick with reality – it’s not so bad.
