If you celebrate your birthday this week:

Your Year Ahead

Gather your energy – there are fast-paced changes ahead.  Thinking processes tip into free-fall, as you courageously dive into the unknown. Brilliant flashes of awareness become part of your everyday life. Travel is likely after March. As is good fortune. Still it’s said that luck is opportunity meeting initiative. So gain the upper hand before someone beats you to it.    Emotionally, you’re finally learning your true value, and this will transform the quality of your love life. You’ll no longer settle for partners that do not honour, cherish and celebrate your essence. You have come too far to be undermined or worse, to be taken for granted.
Aries (March 21 – April 20)
Best Day:  Tuesday 8th
Expect some changes this week, Aries.  Mostly, in the area of relationships.  If romance isn’t working too well, this may involve breakups. The good news?  Secure partnerships will weather the storm, even though you can still expect the odd rumble of thunder.  Seems it’s singles that fare best right now.  For you, love becomes impulsive.
Taurus (April 21 – May 20)
Best Day:  Wednesday 9th
While there’s some extra activity creeping into your week, you should manage to keep a healthy degree of objectivity.  Perhaps this is because any contentious issues don’t refer directly to you.  Be warned, though:  you may still stand in the crossfire and may find yourself the unwitting referee between friends or colleagues.  Stay in control.
Gemini (May 21 – June 21)
Best Day:  Sunday 6th

Your career could catch fire this week, as you’ve impressed all the right people.  Geminis have been hoping for something extraordinary to happen and finally, the cosmos creates a buzz around work and money.  Unexpected turns of events in relationships won’t faze you either, as most of them will be to your advantage.   Enjoy.  

Cancer (June 22 – July 22)
Best Day: Thursday 10th
Somehow, you’ve managed to persuade a guardian angel to work overtime on your behalf – along with the support of friends and family.  You’re ready to review long working hours.  The next step may be to work closer to home.  Although not all can offer immediate rewards, plans put into motion now promise plenty of gain by winter’s end.  
Leo (July 23 – August 23)
Best Day: Sunday 6th
This week others see you as being different – and you are.  It seems like you’ve finally found the inspiration to make dreams come true.  Your desire for freedom and new experiences is intense.  You’re far more rebellious with a strong need to travel – or simply, escape the daily routine.  Do it, if you can.  It won’t be a lonely journey, as love beckons.
Virgo (August 24 – September 22)
Best Day:   Friday 4th
Some weeks feel like too much of a chore.  If you really can’t put one foot in front of the other, then take a few days to rest.  There’ll plenty of time for work in the weeks to come.  It’s a time, too, to let resentments drop, no matter what your convictions might be. The cosmos encourages compromise, so do yourself a favour – forgive and forget.
Libra (September 23 – October 23)
Best Day:  Wednesday 9th
Many Librans find themselves butting heads with authority figures, but no matter what the provocation is – stay in control.  You don’t like being shaken nor stirred, so stay committed and your tenacity should bring about great results.  But what you truly gain this week is the courage of your convictions – no apologies needed.
Scorpio (October 24 – November 22)
Best Day:  Monday 7th
Just when you feel like grabbing pieces of your past and putting them through the nearest shredder, the cosmos waltzes up in time to help you keep things together.  Spare yourself the anxiety of old wrongs.  After all, each one of us makes the occasional mistake – it’s part and parcel of living on this beautiful but sometimes, crazy, planet.  
Sagittarius (November 23 – December 21)
Best Day:  Tuesday 8th
Financial change sets the tone for this week. So if you’ve recently been left wondering what all the striving’s been for and where your quality time has disappeared, the next few days should restore your sense of achievement. Quality relationships assume greater importance and for many – the nights take on a more erotic theme.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 20) 
Best Day: Saturday 5th
Even if nothing extraordinary happens this week, for most – there’s a boost in your happiness. You’re warmly loved, with any new romance looking to have a reassuringly long warranty. Couples also feel more settled.  And should the planets encourage a little extra expenditure, why question the powers that be?
Aquarius (January 21 – February 18)
Best Day:  Monday 7th
This week you’re encouraged to look after your own interests.  The fear of letting people down can be a strong incentive to carry on, but please realise that you’re only human – so give yourself a break. If necessary, pass the baton to someone else for a while. Catch up on life’s pleasures, Aquarius.  Relax – you might even grow to like it.   
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Best Day:  Thursday 10th
At times, we all feel inspired to whisper our secret dreams to the universe.  Some wishes come true, others remain elusive.  Whichever way, wishes are important missives – expressing our heart’s desire as well as our intention to create something new.  So put on your special inspirational hat, Pisces – and dare to dream
