IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY:
Some major battles are looming and you know it. The most important by far will be the battle to free yourself from the influence of people who are holding you back. The future is yours to enjoy, but first you must take leave of the past.
ARIES (March 21 – April 20):
If you can’t get excited about what you have planned to do today then, obviously, you should be doing something else. Don’t feel you have to complete something just because others expect it of you – it’s about your expectations, not theirs.
TAURUS (April 21 – May 21):
All those worries and woes you have been carrying around with you suddenly seem irrelevant. The fact is they were always irrelevant but you allowed yourself to believe otherwise. Now you can approach the weekend with a smile.
GEMINI (May 22 – June 21):
You can be quite sensitive to mood changes in your environment and that skill will come in useful today, especially if you have to work out what other people are thinking. As for your own thoughts – keep them secret.
CANCER (June 22 – July 23):
A surge of negative cosmic activity makes you believe that certain people are against you, but they’re not. The problem is your own attitude. You need to lighten up a bit and smile more – then the world will smile back at you.
LEO (July 24 – Aug. 23):
Stop trying to control everything that happens and let fate guide you. That applies to all areas but in particular to joint financial issues. The more you try to make things go right the more likely they are to go wrong.
VIRGO (Aug. 24 – Sept. 23):
You may not always be the most romantic member of the zodiac but you have your moments. Today’s cosmic influences will encourage you to be more open about your feelings – but not so open that your heart rules your head entirely.
LIBRA (Sept. 24 – Oct. 23):
Why so distrustful? Why so suspicious? If someone approaches you with an idea or proposal today don’t turn them down flat. Listen to what they have to say. They could be doing you the biggest favour of your life.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24 – Nov. 22):
Keep routine tasks to a minimum and don’t worry if you fall behind in your schedule. Something will happen over the next few days that makes many of your current plans redundant, so stay loose and be flexible – and enjoy yourself.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 – Dec. 21):
Others may be hopping from one foot to the other in anger today but you cannot be bothered to make an issue of something that seems so trivial. You’re right to be unimpressed. By this time tomorrow it will be history.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 – Jan. 20):
You seem unusually open to alternative viewpoints at the moment. It’s good that you don’t take what others believe as a personal insult to your own values. The world is big enough for all shades of opinion – yes, even yours!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 – Feb. 19):
Something is going to happen whether you like it or not, and you know it – so why are you still fighting the future? Go with the flow and adapt yourself to events as they happen. It’s the only sure path to happiness.
PISCES (Feb. 20 – Mar. 20):
Are you the best Pisces you can possibly be? Are you making the most of the skills you were born with? If you are honest you will admit you have fallen a bit short, but it’s only a bit so don’t get hung up on it.
