Your Year Ahead

May asks that you acknowledge your limitations. Try to do too much too quickly and you could end up lost for direction.  But it takes more than the occasional wrong turn to derail Taurean dreams.  After June, you recognise where you want to head. Use July to settle debts and put the finishing touches on outstanding projects.  Around August, the Sun promotes leadership. Sadly, October cuts back on cash flow. Overspend on credit, and you’ll buy into trouble. Instead, concentrate on the wealth of work, and play, on offer.  You can balance both.

Aries (March 21 – April 20)

Best Day:  Monday 13th

Freedom and independence appeal, so there may be the temptation to break free.  Take advantage of the positive feeling that this week brings.  The non-essentials have been stripped away and you’re better able to judge your personal strengths and vulnerabilities. Profits also seem to be on the rise.  If so, pamper yourself with some luxuries.  

Taurus (April 21 – May 20)

Best Day:  Wednesday 15th

Disappointment creeps into your week, and who can blame you? The heavens only know that you’ve tried every trick in the book to resolve recent problems – with little to show for it. Misunderstandings are rife – but you’re not ready to give up yet.  This too, shall pass.  Go out and find some like-minded people.  Perhaps you’ll find love, too.  

Gemini (May 21 – June 21)

Best Day:  Sunday 12th

This week brings renovations and repairs, in relationships as much as anything else. While it’s easy to cite platitudes such as “forgive and forget” – it can be hard to actually apply them.  Still, this is what must happen if everyone’s to move on happily.  Forgiveness will help restore stability to your life.  

Cancer (June 22 – July 22)

Best Day:  Tuesday 14th

You may feel restless Cancer, but don’t try to force things to happen.  It’s often easier to go with the flow.  Should obstacles appear, view them as opportunities.  Life is a dance, so choose the rhythm that offers you the greatest joy, and take comfort in fact that all paths lead to the same place – your greatest good.  

Leo (July 23 – August 23)

Best Day:  Thursday 16th

Generally, you’re gifted at getting your message across. That’s because you were born with charm and clever communication, assets which usually work to your advantage. Unfortunately, the chat lines are down right now.  It seems no one’s willing to listen.  Wait until the situation becomes clearer.  

Virgo (August 24 – September 22)

Best Day:  Friday 10th

Collectively, Virgos could hold the world together.  You can be counted on in demanding situations, usually giving one hundred percent but as individuals you really do need to rest on a regular basis.  While your concern for others is highly commendable, take care that your don’t neglect your own health.

Libra (September 23 – October 23)

Best Day:  Wednesday 15th

Librans often give others the benefit of the doubt, but you could now feel torn in different directions.  Take your time.  Don’t let yourself be bullied, bribed or manipulated.  Sure – a decision needs to be made, but at your own pace.  The answer will come when you’re ready, and only then.  Let them wait.  

Scorpio (October 24 – November 22)

Best Day: Saturday 11th

In an ideal world hardworking Scorpios would be left to just get on with the business of succeeding.  Unfortunately, you have to share this planet with far less dynamic souls.  You might think you’ve seen it all when it comes to others’ ineptitude, but they have been mere rehearsals.  The only way to command this ship of fools is to outsmart them.

Sagittarius (November 23 – December 21)

Best Day:  Sunday 12th

Expect a busy week.  The cosmos lends a hand with an attitude makeover. You look and feel fantastic and act with generosity and care, which makes a very attractive package.  Existing relationships look set for growth and singles could find new romance, or perhaps old love is rekindled. For couples, there’s greater commitment.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 20) 

Best Day: Tuesday 14th

You’re a perfectionist, Capricorn.  But the standards that you set for yourself and others are often too high, so don’t be too hard on yourself this week.  Judge your efforts as well as your results.  What you really need is some validation, and friends are willing to give it.  The only problem is that you keep pushing everyone away.

Aquarius (January 21 – February 18)

Best Day:  Saturday 11th

Aquarians are famous for their fiercely stubborn streak.  As compromise doesn’t seem your top priority at the moment, expect some heated discussions.  You’ve had a taste of freedom, and want more.  Though the planets counsel care, you want to throw caution to the wind.  Just as well your cash supply looks plentiful – even if it is borrowed.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Best Day: Monday 13th

Piscean tempers aren’t easily riled, but when angered – your words can cut to the quick. This week, emotions peak and plummet.  A protective cosmos, too, reprimands those who have wronged you.  Resentful friends or family should be shown the door; with most Pisceans ready to prove that they can go it alone.
