If you celebrate your birthday this week:

Your Year Ahead

All years should be like this.  With three power planets offering support, the next 12 months is the right time to pitch your projects to anyone who’ll listen.  You tackle negotiations dynamically and, thanks to a generous Jupiter, it’s surprising where the lucky breaks will come from.  Travel is likely.  This birthday season also notes your preference for adventurous romance, and tries not to disappoint.  


Aries (March 21 – April 20)

Best Day:  Sunday 14th

Appetites are satisfied in a week that’s hungry for meaning – you’re eager to taste life’s different delights. For some, this may mean spiritual advancement; others are set for a creative leap.  Meanwhile, love edges one step closer to becoming unconditional.


Taurus (April 21 – May 20)

Best Day:  Wednesday 17th

Just when you thought everything was going well,  a new setback tests you.  Don’t panic, Taurus.  You have the tenacity to get through this.  You’ve worked too long and hard to even consider surrender.  You’re prepared to take all necessary measures to claim triumph.  And conquer, you will.


Gemini (May 21 to June 21)

Best Day:  Tuesday 16th

It’s a “now or never” kind of week. You’re determined to put yourself on the map – right here, right now.  Even if your current job is stable, you crave more success, more money, just plain “more”…  Don’t rush it, or you’ll force things to happen before their time.


Cancer (June 22 – July 22)

Best Day: Thursday 18th

It’s high time that others realised you’re a person, not a slave.  Your devotion to duty is inspiring, but the planets warn that no amount of success can replace strong health once it’s been lost.  Don’t end up driving yourself towards illness just to please others.  


Leo (July 23 – August 23)

Best Day: Saturday 13th 

It’s hard to know whether your irrepressible nature is endearing or irresponsible, but it seems you’re determined to take a proverbial leap of faith. Having staked a claim on better opportunities, you’re ready to prove your talents.  Use this week to inspire new ambitions.


Virgo (August 24 – September 22)

Best Day:  Wednesday 17th

Some of your zodiac neighbours have been struggling with reality checks.  Now, it’s your turn.  Virgos feel a vague sense of irritation.  While blaming others can be easy, try looking within.  Past grievances may have some bearing on present anger or uncertainty.


Libra (September 23 – October 23)

Best Day:  Monday 15th 

You may be cash-strapped, but don’t give others the impression that you’re desperate for money.  Worrying about income makes no difference but it could attract dishonest individuals.  There are plenty of sharks out there all-too-happy to feed on floundering bait.

Scorpio (October 24 – November 22)

Best Day:  Sunday 14th

Scorpio, when will you learn?  The more you give, the less grateful others become.  Finally, your patience starts to runs thin.  You’re about to stop giving, and start to nip with that poisonous sting of yours.  The sudden shock of a painful sting brings you extra appreciation from others.


Sagittarius (November 23 – December 21)

Best Day: Friday 12th 

Something or someone you had dismissed as a lost cause is back on your radar.  One particular individual may be remarkably generous, forgiving or romantically attentive.  Total happiness isn’t always available on a permanent basis.  But increased happiness is now on offer to you.  


Capricorn (December 22 – January 20)

Best Day: Thursday 18th

Earthy Capricorns can be slow in romance, but dynamite once ignited!  Should deeper desires beg for satisfaction, seize the moment and set out on a journey of sensual discovery – maybe a secret love, possibly with a touch of scandal.  At work, too, you put in some extra hours.


Aquarius (January 21 – February 18)

Best Day:  Saturday 13th

While others are happy to socialise this week, you seem more content to raise the drawbridge on that castle you call home. This doesn’t mean being alone.  It’s a fair bet you’ll enjoy spending time with favourite friends and family, and there’s likely to be a surprise or two.


Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Best Day: Tuesday 16th 

A kindred spirit may present an exciting proposal or opportunity.  Sure, you prefer to be your own unique mastermind.  Pisceans like to have the first idea and the last word, but this is one time when you should at least consider another viewpoint.  Teamwork can prove profitable.
