See what the stars have in store

If you celebrate your birthday this week:

Your Year Ahead
This next year brings a rebirth, Scorpio. You have had enough lessons in love and commitment to last you a lifetime. Now you’re ready to put those lessons to the test by pursuing your true calling and passion. No longer will you be satisfied with simply scratching the surface of life. You’re prepared to go as deep as necessary to create something of lasting value. You want nothing less than the truth, and nothing short of profound meaning.
 
Aries (March 21 – April 20)
Best Day: Saturday 27th
 
As you undoubtedly know, absolute power corrupts.  That is, of course, until you decide it’s your week to even the odds.  Harsh words may be spoken, and decisive action may be taken.  But it’s high time you responded to someone else’s overbearing nature. If this someone threatens to out a secret, call their bluff.  You’ve nothing to fear.
 
Taurus (April 21 – May 20)
Best Day: Thursday 1st
 
Professionally, most Taureans can expect a better week.  You’ve managed to shake off recent problems, and the forces which previously impeded progress have moved on to plague other less fortunate signs.  This leaves you with optimism, and the benefit of hindsight.  You also increasingly look and feel fantastic – a fabulous bonus.  
Gemini (May 21 – June 21)
Best Day:  Sunday 28th
 
This week’s spirited sassiness can’t help but turn heads. Business could mix with pleasure. Or perhaps a higher-up is instrumental in pushing you towards success. Whatever the case, right now you’re ambitious and talented enough to triumph.  If others resent your moment of glory, ignore them.  Push your aims skyward.
 
Cancer (June 22 – July 22)
Best Day:  Monday 29th
 

Born under the influence of the mystical Moon, there’s no escaping your sensitivity.  Any unkind criticism can be a harsh blow to your feelings.  Thankfully, here’s a week that makes little attempt to dampen your enthusiasm. The time’s right to chase passions, romance and your creative path.  Go ahead, Cancer – feel free to be yourself.  

Leo (July 23 – August 23)
Best Day:  Saturday 27th
 

You have an expert eye for quality and opportunity, although this week others may question your direction.  Don’t be dissuaded by their lack of vision.  Ambitious Leos can spot a winner that many would underestimate, be it personal or professional.  So turn a deaf ear to others’ uninspired warnings, and listen to your instincts.  

Virgo (August 24 – September 22)
Best Day:  Sunday 28th
 
Grab this week of sanity and ride it for all it’s worth, Virgo. Your thought processes have fallen into some sensible order – enabling you to approach projects practically.  All of a sudden comes the ability to cope under pressure, thanks to focus and use of logic.  There’s something very attractive about being put in a position of authority.
 
Libra (September 23 – October 23)
Best Day:  Thursday 1st
 

Everyone seems to have lost their sense of humour right now, even you.  Early to mid week, in particular, your psyche enters one of its rare meltdown phases.  It’s the great outdoors that calls – especially if you need to thrash things out in solitude.  The world won’t fall apart if you take some time out – but you might if you don’t.

Scorpio (October 24 – November 22)
Best Day:  Friday 26th
 
Achievement without challenge is rare.  Yet despite your best efforts, this week a tetchy cosmos seems happy to point out life’s limitations.  Still, it’ll take more than a few hurdles to hinder the great Scorpio dream.  Use tact and your innate charm when faced with dilemmas.  Romantic prospects are electrifying, though stability can’t be assured.
 
Sagittarius (November 23 – December 21)
Best Day: Tuesday 30th
 

If money’s been a constant battle, you’ll love this week.  The cosmos declares war on poverty-consciousness.  Breathe a sigh of relief as well-deserved luxuries come well within reach.   There is a catch, though.  If something, or someone, instinctively feels too-good-to-be true, it probably is.  Discernment is the key.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 20) 
Best Day:  Wednesday 31st
 

This week, short-term plans attract you more.  In matters of the heart, singles catch the attention of someone special.   For couples, there could be pressure to fall in line with a partner.  If so, maintain a strong sense of independence and equality.  At work, too, if you’re dealing with someone unreasonable – stand your ground.

Aquarius (January 21 – February 18)
Best Day:  Saturday 27th
 
There’s no shame in moments of weakness.  You feel vulnerable, as you’ve been so trusting. Don’t be so hard on yourself, Aquarius. Life’s been tough lately, and the fact that you’re still standing speaks volumes. Meanwhile, the planets push for spiritual growth. This could mean learning new disciplines, and then applying them to daily work.  
 
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Best Day:  Friday 26th

You have felt confined for too long.  More recently, very little has come easily and life has felt like an endless struggle for survival.  But that was then. The planets now cheer you on – romantically, financially and professionally – so be willing to “go big” should the situation dictate. Just keep your diet under control, or you may end up a few kilos bigger as well.
