IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY:
If recent events have taught you anything it is that you must not take life too seriously – nor should you take yourself too seriously. You will find it much easier to relax, mentally, emotionally and physically, over the coming 12 months.
ARIES (March 21 – April 20):
If you need some extra cash you will find ways to get it today. Mercury, planet of the mind, in materialistic Taurus means you won’t be short of money-making ideas. Make sure they are accompanied by common sense.
TAURUS (April 21 – May 21):
What yesterday seemed so vague will become crystal clear today, thanks to mind planet Mercury joining forces with your ruler Venus. Where your long-term plans are concerned there is no doubt at all you are on the right track.
GEMINI (May 22 – June 21):
What happens today may, on the surface of things, look like yet another piece of bad news, but in the fullness of time you will see that this particular cloud has a huge silver lining. When will that time be? Very soon.
CANCER (June 22 – July 23):
If you find yourself at odds with the status quo today that’s a good sign. Make it your business to ask the kind of awkward questions that people in positions of authority don’t like being asked. Be a catalyst for change.
LEO (July 24 – Aug. 23):
Stand up where you can be seen and speak up for what you believe in. The more others try to shout you down the more you can be certain they have something to hide. Shine a light on their dirty little secrets.
VIRGO (Aug. 24 – Sept. 23):
If you feel in need of a break now is a good time to start making plans. Mercury, your ruler, urges you to get out the holiday brochures, and before you know it you’ll be on a faraway beach soaking up the rays.
LIBRA (Sept. 24 – Oct. 23):
You want nothing more than to be left alone with your thoughts. Don’t worry that family and friends will think you are being antisocial – they know what you are like and that you will soon be back to your sunny, sociable self.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24 – Nov. 22):
You will find it easy to put your thoughts into words today, but some of the things you have to say won’t go down too well with those whose minds are fixed in a single direction. Too bad – say them anyway.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 – Dec. 21):
Don’t let strangers know what you are up to today. The planets warn that any personal information you may let slip now could be used against you later, so be secretive about your plans. You can be too chatty sometimes.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 – Jan. 20):
Any doubts about what you are doing will disappear over the next 24 hours. Cosmic activity in the sympathetic sign of Taurus means anything is possible for you now, so believe in yourself – and just do it.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 – Feb. 19):
A Venus-Mercury conjunction in the domestic area of your chart today will help you say the right things to people you love. Cracks may have appeared in family relationships in recent weeks, but now you can repair them.
PISCES (Feb. 20 – Mar. 20):
You have become a bit too predictable of late and need to do something to remind people that you are not to be taken for granted. It doesn’t have to be shocking but it does have to pack an emotional punch. Think about it.
