IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY:
Your networking skills need to be improved if you are going to make inroads on the career front over the coming year. What you know is important, of course, but who you know counts for just as much, if not more.
ARIES (March 21 – April 20):
You are advised to give your feelings free rein today. You may not want to get emotional in front of people you hope to impress but it won’t hurt to remind them that you are human – just in case they forgot!
TAURUS (April 21 – May 21):
You are in two minds about how to deal with someone who has let you down. Do you forgive and forget? Or do you let them know you will never trust them again? Put it down to experience and move on – together.
GEMINI (May 22 – June 21):
Mars in your sign makes you impetuous but there are very good reasons why you must curb your tendency to act first and think later. Be warned: if you fall out with important people it could cost you dear.
CANCER (June 22 – July 23):
Anyone who stands between you and your objective today is going to wish they had been a little less brave. That’s fine on the work front but don’t allow that aggression to spill over into your private life.
LEO (July 24 – Aug. 23):
You may feel sorry for a friend who is in trouble but they don’t need your sympathy, they need a serious talking-to to get them moving again. It’s called tough love, and it’s something you are especially good at.
VIRGO (Aug. 24 – Sept. 23):
A partner or loved one has behaved badly towards you but you must not behave badly in return as that will only escalate the situation. They will regret their actions further down the line and make it up to you in full.
LIBRA (Sept. 24 – Oct. 23):
The only way to get what you want today is to give a partner or colleague what they want first. Even then there is no guarantee that they will return the favour, but it will improve the odds considerably.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24 – Nov. 22):
Everyone will be impressed by your leadership qualities today – even those above you in the pecking order at work will be amazed at your can-do attitude. Just don’t get so can-do that they start to feel threatened.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 – Dec. 21):
Your financial situation may not be as healthy as you would wish but neither is it the end of the world. The energy that goes into worrying about it would be better spent finding new ways to make money.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 – Jan. 20):
Affairs of the heart will take centre stage as the new week begins but you have to accept that your feelings for one particular person are not going to be returned – at least not until they’ve got over someone else.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 – Feb. 19):
If you need to tackle problems of a financial nature now is the time to get serious about it. You will need to be ruthless, both with yourself and with other people. Someone has to take those hard decisions.
PISCES (Feb. 20 – Mar. 20):
Few people have the courage to stand up to you, but that is not an invitation to trample on their feelings or ignore their right to make decisions for themselves. Couple strength with self-discipline today.
