IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY:
A sun-Mars link on your birthday indicates you will have all the confidence and all the energy you need to achieve great things over the coming 12 months. Aim high and make sure your ambitions stretch you like never before.
ARIES (March 21 – April 20):
Today’s sun-Mars link makes this the ideal time to impress employers and other important people. Don’t hide yourself away, show the world what you can do – much more than your rivals are capable of.
TAURUS (April 21 – May 21):
There is nothing you cannot do and nothing you cannot have. No, really. The only danger is that you might get carried away, behave too imperiously and make enemies of people who should really be your friends.
GEMINI (May 22 – June 21):
Find a quiet place where you can be alone with your thoughts, then ask yourself some questions about who you are and where you are going in life. And no funny answers, please – this is supposed to be serious.
CANCER (June 22 – July 23):
You don’t have to do something just because other people expect it of you. If you let partners and colleagues dictate terms today they will, and you can be sure they won’t be favourable to you. Stand up for yourself.
LEO (July 24 – Aug. 23):
You have been working too hard and need a break. In the long-term you also need to change your attitude to your duties and responsibilities. You will be no good to anyone if you run yourself into the ground.
VIRGO (Aug. 24 – Sept. 23):
Don’t waste any more time wondering if what you are planning to do is possible, just get on and do it and make it possible. With Mars in your sign, linked to the sun, there is precious little you cannot do today.
LIBRA (Sept. 24 – Oct. 23):
You’ll have to deal with someone you don’t much like today, but there is no point getting annoyed about it. The fact is you have to work together, for a while at least, so ignore your feelings and make the best of it.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24 – Nov. 22):
You will have a great deal of fun today, as will those who are lucky enough to call you a friend. However, you will also attract a few hangers-on – watch out they don’t have too good a time at your expense.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 – Dec. 21):
You don’t have to ask anyone’s permission to make changes. However, with both Mars and Pluto strong in your chart what changes you do make will be irreversible, so make sure they really are what you want.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 – Jan. 20):
Your confidence is at an all-time high at the moment and with the sun, Mercury and Pluto all moving through your sign you honestly believe there is nothing you cannot do. But that does not mean you have to do everything.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 – Feb. 19):
The less others know about your aims and ambitions the better, especially if you are working towards something that is likely to make your rivals jealous if you succeed. It’s okay to be a bit secretive today.
PISCES (Feb. 20 – Mar. 20):
Take the initiative in group and social activities and don’t be afraid to tell others what they should be doing. They won’t see you as pushy. On the contrary, they will see you as the leader they need to follow.
