If you celebrate your birthday this week:

Your Year Ahead

This is the perfect time for networking, updating your appearance, or, if attached, taking things to the next level. Singles, too, should strike while the iron is hot.  And while you have a more give-and-take attitude towards relationships, this next year finds you still feeling fiesty, yet wanting to settle.  Money, however, may cause concern.  Tired of having little or nothing to show for your work, you take a harder stance with finances, and start saving.  


Aries (March 21 – April 20)

Best Day: Tuesday 20th

Aries focus is fixed on finances right now, giving you an opportunity to increase income.  Start saving now and you’ll soon have plenty to spare for that proverbial rainy day.  Jobs connected with finances or the media do particularly well.  Ditto for those linked with health care.


Taurus (April 21 – May 20)

Best Day:  Saturday 17th

The truest test of character often arises in emergencies.  But is there really a crisis happening now, or is someone being overly dramatic? Step back from the hysteria surrounding you and calmly reassess the situation.  It’s a fairly safe bet that the future’s not totally doomed.


Gemini (May 21 to June 21)

Best Day:  Wednesday 21st

Until family problems are sorted Gemini, nothing will make much sense.  This week’s planets remind you that charity begins at home.  Your desire to make a mark on the world is admirable, but first you must give your full attention to any troubling situation at home.


Cancer (June 22 – July 22)

Best Day:  Sunday 18th

Ridding yourself of restrictions is this week’s theme, especially when it comes to romance or pursuing a new job.  The cosmos allows you to release emotional baggage or outworn values that block you from fearless action.  Do this, and the possibilities of new love or promotion soar.  Finally, all that tenacity is paying off.  


Leo (July 23 – August 23)

Best Day: Friday 16th

The cosmos advises against compromise this week – for good reason.  Being pushed into not-so-satisfactory situations or having to take the blame at work because of someone else’s mistakes is not acceptable.  The cosmos helps those who help themselves, so stand your ground and and make your thoughts heard.  


Virgo (August 24 – September 22)

Best Day:  Monday 19th

You’re not exempt from this week’s cosmic madness.  If you can make sense of the next few days, great – but should the going get too tough, escape.  It may be the only way to get through the week sane.  Allow yourself the occasional moment of serenity.  Preferably, alone.  


Libra (September 23 – October 23)

Best Day:  Wednesday 21st

Ever been struck by love at first sight?  First thoughts usually go to possible happily-ever-afters, but sometimes a strong friendship is all that’s meant to be. Whatever the case, someone new holds the promise of staying very special.  Better still, you’re ready to offload a fair few of those inhibitions.  


Scorpio (October 24 – November 22)

Best Day: Monday 19th

This week, keep your ears to the ground and your mouth shut. There’s some gossip around, and it could be about you – so don’t be in a hurry to disclose your thoughts or secrets – let others reveal their intentions first.  Keep yourself at a safe distance from troublemakers and don’t expect others to live up to their promises.  


Sagittarius (November 23 – December 21)

Best Day: Thursday 22nd

If you’ve taken a professional leap of faith lately, your courage should soon show rewarding results. The same can be said for affairs of the heart. Right now you’re a marketable item Sagittarius – so go sell yourself to your target audience.  Late nights are likely.


Capricorn (December 22 – January 20)

Best Day: Thursday 22nd

This week is more inclined to give you a spiritual nudge rather than financial flow.  Take the compassionate route rather than the materialistic, and you could stumble across moments of genuine peace and happiness.  Such tranquility isn’t as elusive as you think.  


Aquarius (January 21 – February 18)

Best Day:  Saturday 17th

Just when you were about to let go of some long-held dreams, along comes a guardian angel to remind you why you had such high hopes in the first place. So what to do?  Give up or go on?   Trust the voice within.   Finally, here’s a week when there’s little to lose and much to gain. 


Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Best Day: Sunday 18th

Break down any emotional barriers that have grown between yourself and loved ones.  Don’t be too proud to ask for help.  If asked, friends will go out of their way to offer support.  Over the years, others have truly appreciated your generosity.   So give them a chance to repay all your own good deeds and favours.  You’re much loved.
