If you celebrate your birthday this week:
Your Year Ahead
Why fight fate, Capricorn?  Change is inevitable. Rather than resist what’s happening – rethink your priorities and overall sense of direction.  Chances are, you have a sad old collection of artefacts and half-finished projects that are ready for the trash.  This year, expect a range of exciting new acquaintances, but don’t write off reconciliation with someone special from the past.  If you were hoping for some breathing space during late summer, forget it.  An increased appetite for fun just adds extra sizzle to an already fiesty spirit.   Only around May will the hedonism slow down for more serious pursuits.
Aries (March 21 – April 20)
Best Day:   Monday 31st
Ambitions and desires come within reach this week, with that famous Aries charm providing the finishing touches.  Socially, you’re a natural – with plenty of romantic possibilities.  Friends could also introduce a special someone into your life.  If any caution is required, it’s with regard to finances.   Take care not to overstep your budget.  
Taurus (April 21 – May 20)
Best Day:   Sunday 30th
Taureans power through this week with sheer force of personality.  This fierce self-confidence propels you to the head of the line – and for once, you truly believe you belong there.  This doesn’t mean you’ll always get what you want, but it does mean you will be heard.  When you’re this fiesty, you simply can’t be ignored.
Gemini (May 21 – June 21)
Best Day:  Tuesday 1st

A lack of clarity may cloud your early week.  The haze won’t clear all at once, but each day brings increased clarity.  In the meantime, stay clear of the pathologically discontented.  For now, you’d do best to work alone.  Rather than fall victim to other people’s troubled minds, reconfirm your own beliefs and follow your instincts.

Cancer (June 22 – July 22)
Best Day:   Friday 28th

You have more charisma that you know what to do with this week, so schedule meetings and hot dates to make the most of this time.  Luckily, you won’t have to make any financial decisions.  For now, you need only be committed to having fun.  Singles are surprised by the unusual, while couples opt for a change in scenery.  A great way to start a busy year.   

Leo (July 23 – August 23)
Best Day:  Wednesday 2nd
The new year inspires a generous cosmos.  Some Leos have been feeling bored or very tired, so why not welcome this fabulous phase of optimism and creativity? Are we talking more friends, better money, new romance or career achievement?  The short answer is “yes”!  Treat the week like a pick’n mix and choose where to shine.
Virgo (August 24 – September 22)
Best Day:  Saturday 29th

For some time, you’ve surrendered to other people’s wishes and needs.  This week releases your frustrated inner wild child.  The festive season offered the chance to free up some of those hidden desires, but you resisted.  Now, the cosmos pushes even harder for confined passions to be freed.  Let it rip, Virgo.  It’s been a long time coming.  

Libra (September 23 – October 23)
Best Day:  Monday 31st

Right now, you’re interested in doing anything except what’s expected of you.  Many are being contrary just for the sake of it.  So unlike true Libran behaviour.  Consider, instead, letting resentments drop.   Yes, of course, it’s difficult to let go of long held hurts – but in this continuing season of goodwill – do yourself a favour.  Forgive and forget.

Scorpio (October 24 – November 22)
Best Day:  Friday 28th

It’s hard to make a total mess of good fortune, but we wretched humans have the knack of doing just that.  Should resentment pay the Scorpio spirit a brief visit this week, it’s best given the cold shoulder.  You’re probably tapping into injustices running well back from long ago.  Forget past problems and let the planets lull you into sweet surrender.

Sagittarius (November 23 – December 21)
Best Day: Wednesday 2nd
It seems the more you do this week, the more you get to do – but the same theme applies to spending.  You may find that one purchase leads to another.  It seems that your love life looks just as casual.  You’re free to attract whomever you want, but choose playmates carefully.  Some have claws, others bite.  It’s a wild world out there.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 20) 
Best Day:   Sunday 30th
Mix a little determination with a lot of ambition, and you get a sure-fire recipe for success.  It’s also time to ditch emotional or professional deadwood.  Sure, this is more easily said than done – but one of Capricorns’ greatest strengths is the ability to pick yourself up, dust yourself down and move on to bigger and better things.  Get to it.    
Aquarius (January 21 – February 18)
Best Day:  Thursday 3rd

Aquarians delight in being unique, but if you value your distinctive character – you should also respect everyone else’s.  The question of responsibility versus freedom may crop up.  But mistake commitment for chains, and you could find yourself permanent footloose and fancy-free.  If that’s what you want, fine.  Otherwise, try a more conciliatory approach.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Best Day:   Monday 31st
Should year’s end finalise a chapter in your life, take stock and follow up with positive action. If you need to make a break, quit that dead-end job or stand up to troublemakers.   And there’s much to be said for being in the right place at the right time.  Mind you, it’s not always luck.  It’s often prior knowledge that gets you there.  So stay attentive.
