IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY:
Mars and Pluto will pull you in different directions over the coming 12 months and somehow you will have to find a balance between competing loyalties. Remember, though, that your first loyalty must always be to yourself. Your happiness is paramount.
ARIES (March 21 – April 20):
You don’t like to admit defeat but with your ruler Mars at odds with Pluto today you may have to. Don’t worry: the weekend will bring new opportunities and in a matter of days you’ll be one of the winners again.
TAURUS (April 21 – May 21):
A relationship that has been up one day and down the next is beginning to stabilize and you must not let today’s minor irritations come between you again. If love is to last you must continue to work at it.
GEMINI (May 22 – June 21):
Take time out from the fun and games, stand back from the noise and confusion, and make sure you can see the bigger picture. Most likely what you thought was a problem is not a problem at all. It rarely is.
CANCER (June 22 – July 23):
If you feel exhausted physically and mentally you must heed your body’s warning and slow down. You don’t have to be on top of things every moment of every day – let someone else do the worrying for a change.
LEO (July 24 – Aug. 23):
What other people expect of you is irrelevant – it’s what you expect of yourself that matters. Certain people will try to play on your feelings of guilt today but you must not let them succeed. You don’t have to apologize to anyone.
VIRGO (Aug. 24 – Sept. 23):
A problem you have been struggling with will resolve itself today and the relief you feel will be almost euphoric. Yes, of course, you could have handled it differently and saved yourself some trouble but now it’s done, so forget it.
LIBRA (Sept. 24 – Oct. 23):
Positive thoughts are a must today. If you allow yourself to dwell on negative imaginings they could so easily lead to negative events, so focus on what makes you happy and pretend the bad stuff does not exist.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24 – Nov. 22):
Try not to take anything too seriously today, especially if you are the kind of Scorpio who tends to dwell on perceived slights and injustices. The world is not against you, so don’t declare war on the world!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 – Dec. 21):
You recently let down your guard and allowed others to see the more vulnerable side of your nature, and now you’re regretting it. There’s no need. It’s good to remind them that behind that easygoing exterior is a sensitive human being.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 – Jan. 20):
Someone you think of as a friend seems a bit hostile, but you must not let it get to you and you must not be hostile in return. Everyone gets a bit touchy now and again and come tomorrow you’ll be best mates again.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 – Feb. 19):
It seems you have bitten off more than you can chew and now you must decide what tasks are worth carrying on with and what tasks must be abandoned. Whatever you choose to do, be ruthless. Make a decision and stick with it.
PISCES (Feb. 20 – Mar. 20):
Having signed up to a deal of some kind you must go all the way. The planets warn if you let your new colleagues down it will do a lot of damage to your future prospects. A promise is a promise, so honour it.
