IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY:
Saturn, the great taskmaster of the zodiac, urges you to be more disciplined over the coming 12 months. You may be a free spirit but even Sags need to be focused if they are to make the most of their talents.
ARIES (March 21 – April 20):
Misunderstandings could be expensive, so make sure those you work and do business with know what you are up to today. They may not agree with your aims but neither will they see you as a potential threat.
TAURUS (April 21 – May 21):
Take life at a more measured pace over the next 24 hours. You may be driven by your instincts but at this time of year it’s okay to be a little more relaxed in your outlook. It won’t cost you.
GEMINI (May 22 – June 21):
Opportunities to prosper are all around, but you must be selective. Pace yourself sensibly and choose wisely from the list of options that life puts in front of you. It’s a menu – but don’t try to eat it all.
CANCER (June 22 – July 23):
You seem to be a bit touchy at the moment, and that’s bad news for anyone who gets on your wrong side. Don’t get too emotional though or it could affect your judgment and make it easier for rivals to beat you.
LEO (July 24 – Aug. 23):
You can sense that something big is about to happen but you can’t work out what it might be. Relax. Whatever it is it won’t be bad – in fact the planets indicate it will be both exciting and profitable, for you at least.
VIRGO (Aug. 24 – Sept. 23):
Why are you trying so hard to convince people that your ideas are best? Maybe they are but you don’t need to convert those who disagree with you. If your ideas are meaningful others will follow when they are ready.
LIBRA (Sept. 24 – Oct. 23):
What seems like a setback today will turn out to be a blessing in disguise before the end of the year, so don’t waste time worrying about it. At this time of year you should be getting out and about and having fun.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24 – Nov. 22):
You will face some tough obstacles today, but being a Scorpio you will enjoy the challenge. The efforts you put in over the next 24 hours will bring huge rewards early in the new year, so keep striving.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 – Dec. 21):
Your options may be limited at the moment but that’s no bad thing. Today’s sun-Saturn link will in some way remind you that a project needs to be finished by Thursday at the latest – or it won’t get finished at all.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 – Jan. 20):
You will have to use up a lot of physical and mental energy to enjoy what is really quite a modest return. In which case, why bother? The only effort worth making today is the effort to have fun with your friends.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 – Feb. 19):
There are two ways you can get what you want: you can go it alone or you can partner up with people who share your ambitions. It’s a no-brainer really. Besides, it’s more fun working with others than on your own.
PISCES (Feb. 20 – Mar. 20):
Keep your mind focused on a particular target. If you allow your attention to stray for even a few moments it may take hours to get back in the groove again. What is it you are passionate about? Make that your only goal.
