IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY:
A sun-Jupiter aspect on your birthday will make it easy for you to aim high, but the danger is you could take on too much and scatter your energy. Set yourself just two objectives, one personal and one vocational. Anything more is excessive.
ARIES (March 21 – April 20):
Jupiter, planet of exaggeration, is strong today, so watch what you say and do. Your words and actions may seem perfectly reasonable to you but some people are sensitive to being given even good advice, never mind criticism.
TAURUS (April 21 – May 21):
Resist the urge to act on impulse today, even if – especially if – you are bored and feel the need to stir things up a bit. If you act without thinking the consequences could be unthinkable, so don’t be rash – it’s not worth the risk.
GEMINI (May 22 – June 21):
Sometimes you can be too emotional and sometimes you show no emotion at all, and you will certainly go to one extreme or the other over the next 24 hours. Just be careful your uneven feelings don’t jeopardize an important relationship.
CANCER (June 22 – July 23):
You take your duties in life very seriously, but sometimes you are a bit too severe in your reactions and make it hard for people to know the real you – the fun you. What happens today is not that important, so don’t look so glum.
LEO (July 24 – Aug. 23):
The sun, your ruler, squares up to Jupiter today, making it easy for you to reach out to the world and bend it to your will. But do you need to be so forceful? Probably not. You’re pretty good at friendly persuasion too.
VIRGO (Aug. 24 – Sept. 23):
Why do you feel guilty about something that was clearly not your fault? At the most you had only a minor role to play, so stop beating yourself up about it and next time be a bit more cautious about who you team up with.
LIBRA (Sept. 24 – Oct. 23):
Travel and social plans may have to be changed at the last possible moment today and, of course, you won’t be too happy about it. Fortunately your schedule is quite flexible, so don’t fume about it for too long. You’ll still have a great time.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24 – Nov. 22):
Make sure you know all the facts before making a decision about your finances. With Jupiter strong in your chart you may have too rosy a view of how much money will be coming in – so don’t plan on too much going out.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 – Dec. 21):
You are moving so fast at the moment that you may think you are irresistible. Mistake! There is an immovable object up ahead and if you don’t take evasive action soon there could be an almighty crash. Start slowing down.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 – Jan. 20):
Common sense should tell you that what you are worrying about is simply not worth the effort, so put it out of your mind. Even if the worst happens it’s not the end of the world, so stop worrying and start living again.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 – Feb. 19):
Is it wrong to be happy when other people are sad? Of course not! You are not responsible for their emotions, any more than they are responsible for yours, so laugh as much as you like. Be the example they’ll want to follow.
PISCES (Feb. 20 – Mar. 20):
Keep things simple today. Your life is complicated enough as it is without adding more to the mix. Focus on the one thing that really matters and put everything else out of your mind. Simplicity and success are closely related.
