If you celebrate your birthday this week:
 
Your Year Ahead
 
Work threatens to monopolise the year, but you won’t mind.  Running through your veins is a combination of tenacity and ambition that can’t help but lead to success.  Others may find this feisty resolve a tad intimidating and will stand back.  But life isn’t all work.  With carnal desires running free, you’ll find that business contacts can just as willingly become romantic ties.  Singles play the field.  At work, however, others could resent your moment of glory.  If placed on the defence, then bring on your greatest weapon – tenacity.  We’re all blessed with our special gifts for a reason.
Aries (March 21 – April 20)
Best Day: Monday 22nd
 
If you’ve been disillusioned with life, take heart.  The doors of opportunity are about to swing wide open.  As you prepare for the future think big, think love and think abundance.  At work, the more others oppose you, the stronger you become.  Should the late week finalise a chapter in your life – follow up with positive action.
 
Taurus (April 21 – May 20)
Best Day:  Tuesday 23rd
 
Although there’s still hard work ahead, increased responsibilities promise equal rewards.  Retraining or travel, perhaps. One pitfall lies in trying to be all things to all people.  Also watch for the envy of others.  Competitors might feel the need to bring you down.  Don’t let them – realise how truly amazing you are.  
 
Gemini (May 21 – June 21)
Best Day:  Thursday 25th
 
You’re in debt, Gemini.  So unless you suddenly win lotto or inherit, start thinking about ways to lavish love on your family and friends without spending a small fortune.  Sometimes a heartfelt home-cooked meal will suffice.  Or perhaps a picnic by the beach.  It’s the love behind the gift, not what you give.
 
Cancer (June 22 – July 22)
Best Day:  Sunday 21st
 
If searching for something nice to say, you’re probably lost for conversation right now.  Blame it on a mischievous cosmos, tetchy hormones or any other meddling factors you can think of.  There could also be rumblings about financial matters.  Cancerians are on a short fuse right now, and you’re as philosophical as a cheap cracker.
 
Leo (July 23 – August 23)
Best Day:  Friday 19th
 
Even though some matters demand attention, they’re best tackled next week.  Someone’s feeling tetchy, and you’re treading eggshells to avoid conflict.  Even then, it’s difficult keeping them either at ease, or at a distance.  Still, if you’re fed up with their constant grouching – perhaps it’s time to deliver a few home truths.  
 
Virgo (August 24 – September 22)
Best Day:  Wednesday 24th
 
The early week welcomes introspection, during which you’re entitled to throw out as much spiritual trash as you like. Then concentrate on two main draw cards – health and fun. Just don’t overdo it. Overindulgence could trigger an old ailment, and you don’t want to go down that road again.  Look after your body and it will look after you.  
 
Libra (September 23 – October 23)
Best Day:  Tuesday 23rd
 
Sometimes you have to wonder if someone up there’s just hitting the repeat button over and over again. Apologies Libra, but it seems that your work achievements are temporarily on hold.   That’s not to say you should give up on your dreams.  Just look to accomplish them another time.
 
Scorpio (October 24 – November 22)
Best Day:  Friday 19th
 
If someone’s trying to swindle you, more fool them. Competitors might feel the need to bring you down.  Don’t let them.  Even though they’re being underhanded – you won’t miss a trick.  Once the Scorpio mind locks in its co-ordinates, your intuitive aim never misses the target.   Opponents should take cover.
 
Sagittarius (November 23 – December 21)
Best Day:  Sunday 21st
 
Sagittarians are born with a special mission to guard and protect.  This week, you become an even greater messenger of healing, harmony and joy.  Sensing this, others more openly seek your advice and heed your wisdom. What a change from recent weeks, when you felt a tad shut out.   It’s great to be back in step with everyone.
 
Capricorn (December 22 – January 20) 
Best Day:  Thursday 25th
 
This is one of those weeks when knowing how to play the game quietly wins greater advantage than a defiant show of Capricorn assertion.  Recent hard work should start to reap rewards, but you may be surprised to find yourself making last-minute changes – for the better.  Financial optimism allows for self-pampering – so book that massage!
 
Aquarius (January 21 – February 18)
Best Day:  Monday 22nd
 
Sometimes we can’t help but be drawn into conflict, as this week proves.  It seems that you’re caught between two warring parties.  More precisely – you’re right in the middle of their tug of war.  Who wins may depend on which way you lean.  If you can, try to stay neutral.  If all else fails, step away and take some solo time.  
 
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Best Day:  Wednesday 24th
 
Just when you started to feel happy with your lot, along comes a whisper of discontent.  But it’s not just a matter of you being hard to please.  There’s still some emotional deadwood about.  Take stock, and decide what’s no longer working for you – and then trash it. Guilt free.
