IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY:
You have never been the kind to merely accept what other people tell you, and over the coming 12 months you will be even more suspicious of received wisdom than usual. Rock the boat a little. No, make that a lot.
ARIES (March 21 – April 20):
Don’t get involved in a feud unless you know you can win it. As Mars, your ruler, is now moving retrograde you may feel you have something to prove. But what does it prove if you end up defeated?
TAURUS (April 21 – May 21):
Back off a bit and let things develop at their own pace. Some situations change so fast there is really no point trying to direct events. The best you can do is to watch what happens and react appropriately.
GEMINI (May 22 – June 21):
Someone in a position of power will try to persuade you that a certain course of action is in your best interests, but you know it isn’t true. You’ve got to be tough and stand up to them. Say “no” and mean it.
CANCER (June 22 – July 23):
There are all sorts of exciting things going on in your world at the moment but today you must ignore them all and focus on getting your money situation in better shape. Excitement doesn’t come cheap you know.
LEO (July 24 – Aug. 23):
Someone seems to disagree with just about everything you say and do. Are they being annoying for the fun of it? Most likely that’s the case but you don’t have to rise to the bait. Pretend they don’t exist.
VIRGO (Aug. 24 – Sept. 23):
Take care you don’t fall out with someone in a position of authority today. You don’t have to give them your full support but you do have to show that you respect their dominant position. It’s good politics.
LIBRA (Sept. 24 – Oct. 23):
Libras are tougher than they sometimes look and anyone who doubts that will learn today just how resolute and committed you can be. Of course, you won’t just get your way, you will get it in style.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24 – Nov. 22):
For best results today you should focus your energy on something of a creative or artistic nature, preferably something that you can do on your own. Find new ways to turn your talents into cash.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 – Dec. 21):
Partners and colleagues will happily follow your lead today, but only if you persuade them it is in their best interests. If you try to force them down a certain route they will drag their heels and you will get nowhere.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 – Jan. 20):
You will be in a charitable mood over the next 24 hours but watch out you don’t give too much away, and to the wrong sorts of people. Not everyone deserves your generosity. Some people are just plain lazy.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 – Feb. 19):
Go with the flow today and don’t worry that you can’t yet see what your final destination is going to be. Wherever you end up it will be fun, and financially beneficial too. You can’t lose.
PISCES (Feb. 20 – Mar. 20):
Who are you? What are you doing? Where are you going? These and other deep questions seem to be taking up a lot of your time at the moment, and that’s good. They’re the questions that really matter.
