IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY:
A Mercury-Jupiter link on your birthday will fill your head with big ideas but are they really practical? It will pay you to get the advice of an expert before committing your time or your money. Only start what you will be able to finish.
ARIES (March 21 – April 20):
The more you may be tempted to take some kind of risk today the more you should remind yourself that there is really no need. Everything is going fine for you now. Why jeopardize your considerable gains just to get a little bit more?
TAURUS (April 21 – May 21):
No matter where you are or what you are doing you must stay positive. Keep reminding yourself that what looks like a problem now won’t be a problem for much longer – in fact it may not be a problem at all. It’s about perspective.
GEMINI (May 22 – June 21):
If you make an error of some kind today you must put it right the first chance you get. No one will blame you for making an honest mistake but they will blame you if you fail to rectify it. Act quickly – it’s what you’re good at.
CANCER (June 22 – July 23):
While Mercury, planet of the mind, is moving retrograde you cannot afford to take chances, especially if there is money involved. If you are not entirely sure you are doing the right thing today it might be better to do nothing at all.
LEO (July 24 – Aug. 23):
Be careful what you say today because a rival is looking for a reason to catch you out and make you look bad. Don’t make it easy for them by exaggerating your achievements. You really don’t have to – you’re already a star.
VIRGO (Aug. 24 – Sept. 23):
If you have any skeletons in your closet, no matter how minor they might be, you must have a plan for when they become public knowledge. You know it will happen sooner or later so start thinking now about how to protect your reputation.
LIBRA (Sept. 24 – Oct. 23):
Do whatever it takes to stay cool, calm and collected. With Mercury close to Jupiter in your opposite sign someone, somewhere will say things that are designed to provoke you, but you don’t have to rise to the bait. Ignore them.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24 – Nov. 22):
It’s good of you to take your responsibilities seriously but don’t let them take over your entire life. Do things for other people if you can, but not at the expense of what you should be doing for yourself. Charity begins at home.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 – Dec. 21):
Jupiter, your ruler, is on fine form and no doubt you think you can do anything you please. Maybe you can but you should still be wary of someone who tries to coax you into taking a big risk today. Let them try it first.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 – Jan. 20):
You are not responsible for all the bad things that happen in other people’s lives, so don’t get depressed just because you can’t save everyone from their follies. The best way to make your mark on the world is to be a good example.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 – Feb. 19):
Stick with what you have got, at least for the moment, and don’t get greedy just because other people possess what you do not. From their point of view you are the one who has got it all in the things that really matter.
PISCES (Feb. 20 – Mar. 20):
Some people are seriously lacking in common sense and one such individual needs your help today. Do what you can to get them out of a jam but don’t let it adversely affect your own professional or financial standing. You don’t owe them.
