IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY:
To say you are popular is a bit of an understatement – everyone wants to get close to you – but that may be more of a hindrance than a help this coming year. Don’t let friends come between you and your goals.
ARIES (March 21 – April 20):
You need to approach what you are working on in a more balanced way. At the moment you are going at it like the proverbial bull in a china shop and something is sure to get broken. Slow down a bit.
TAURUS (April 21 – May 21):
You will make efforts above and beyond the call of duty over the next 24 hours. With Mars on your side you feel like you could take on the world and win. Maybe you can. Try it and see.
GEMINI (May 22 – June 21):
The fact that you are the only one in your social or work group who takes a particular viewpoint does not mean you are wrong. More likely it means that your outlook is broader than the average. Never be average.
CANCER (June 22 – July 23):
You may have to act tough or in some other way apply pressure to get what you want. The trick is to apply just the right amount: enough to get your way but not so much that even friends turn against you.
LEO (July 24 – Aug. 23):
Life is good and getting better by the moment, so why are you still focusing on things that went wrong while ignoring things that went right? Whatever the reason, it’s time to get over it. Stop regretting, start living.
VIRGO (Aug. 24 – Sept. 23):
You are full of energy and enthusiasm, and that’s good, but Mars in your sign turns retrograde in just a few days, so you need to focus that energy and enthusiasm on actually getting things done. Not later – right now.
LIBRA (Sept. 24 – Oct. 23):
You may be tempted to cut corners a bit today but if you do you may regret it next week when you realize there is something you needed to experience. Whatever task you are working on make sure you do a good job.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24 – Nov. 22):
You have never been the sort to worry what others might think of you, and you are not about to change your ways now. Friends and work colleagues can criticize all they like – you won’t listen to any of them.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 – Dec. 21):
Tackle a task or objective that you might not feel able to master at most other times. With Mars on your side today sheer energy will see you through – once you pluck up the courage to start.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 – Jan. 20):
Nothing is beyond you if you put your mind to it, not even things that have been beyond you in the past. In fact this is the perfect occasion to revisit something you failed at earlier. This time you’ll succeed.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 – Feb. 19):
It seems you are having trouble keeping a desire of some sort under wraps. But why would you want to? Okay, so not everyone will approve, but that’s their failing not yours. Don’t let them cramp your style.
PISCES (Feb. 20 – Mar. 20):
Because Mars is moving through your opposite sign at the moment it may feel as if the whole world is against you. It isn’t true, of course, but today you may indeed have to lock horns with a rival. You’ll win.
