IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY:
What you say is important, but the way in which you say it will determine whether or not others take you seriously. Don’t make big claims that you may not be able to live up to. Be modest in your aims, and exceptional in your efforts.
ARIES (March 21 – April 20):
Are the conclusions you have reached about a certain situation your own conclusions, or are they ideas you have picked up from other people or from the media? Think for yourself today. Face facts and draw your own conclusions.
TAURUS (April 21 – May 21):
You may be tempted to do something that will gain you an advantage over your rivals, but is it ethical? If not you are strongly advised to play by the rules, even though it means it will be more of an effort to succeed.
GEMINI (May 22 – June 21):
Just because the grass looks greener on the other side of the fence does not mean you have been moving in the wrong direction. All roads eventually lead to where you most need to go, so keep going. You don’t need to change.
CANCER (June 22 – July 23):
An idea or belief you have always taken for granted is beginning to show signs of wear and tear. Maybe it’s time to replace it with something a bit more up to date. Move with the times – because they won’t wait for you.
LEO (July 24 – Aug. 23):
A relationship is at a turning point and what happens today or tomorrow will seal its fate one way or the other. It may not be easy to call it a day but if that’s what your heart tells you then what choice do you have?
VIRGO (Aug. 24 – Sept. 23):
Mercury, your ruler, is at right angles to Jupiter today, which means you will need to make an extra effort to get your message across. Don’t just shout louder – make sure you shout at the right people too.
LIBRA (Sept. 24 – Oct. 23):
If you are the kind of Libra who learns from your mistakes you will easily spot a potential pitfall today. History always repeats itself, so if what you see or hear reminds you of the past make sure you act on that knowledge.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24 – Nov. 22):
Your trust in someone has taken a bit of a nose-dive in recent weeks and what happens today is unlikely to change your opinion that they don’t know what they are doing. Keep your distance. Stupidity can be contagious.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 – Dec. 21):
Take what you hear from a colleague or friend with a large pinch of salt. Mind planet Mercury, at odds with your ruler Jupiter, warns they don’t know what they are talking about. Trust only your own five senses.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 – Jan. 20):
Retrograde Mercury is giving you the chance to go back and take care of something you should have dealt with a long time ago. If you still can’t get it right then maybe it’s just too much for you. Do something else.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 – Feb. 19):
You may be at a loss to explain why a friend or relative is acting so strangely but you know how illogical some people can be. Not everyone shares your Spock-like ability to focus only on facts. Make allowances for human nature.
PISCES (Feb. 20 – Mar. 20):
Hopefully you know how to keep a secret, because if you go blabbing about a friend’s peccadilloes it will be you who ends up looking bad. Everyone has at least one skeleton in their closet. How would you feel if yours were made public?
