If you celebrate your birthday this week:

Your Year Ahead

You can be resistant to change, mostly because it can sometimes be difficult for you to make a decision.  Not so this year, when you’re in line for thrills and spills. Trouble is, few are keen to share your dreams.  Perhaps they’ve been witness to your less adventurous side in the past.  But an upbeat cosmos creates tremendous energy on your behalf.  Get passionate and show others how amazingly confident you can be.  

Aries (March 21 – April 20)


Best Day: Friday 15th

Mercury is moving backwards this week, so double check dates, times, phone numbers, addresses – electronics can go haywire too.  Don’t sign contracts, or if you really can’t avoid it – then read the fine print very carefully. Travels can also be subject to delay. Not the best week to buy a new computer or phone – wait until the week passes.    


Taurus (April 21 – May 20)

Best Day: Sunday 17th

Others might slack off during the Christmas malaise, but thanks to Mercury, you’re more than happy to finish last minute work chores. But it’s impossible to ignore festive celebrations. Should extravagance send your finances plunging, don’t panic.  It can all be rectified in the new year.


Gemini (May 21 to June 21)

Best Day:  Wednesday 20th

If it seems like everything is stuck in mud, it’s just Mercury persuading you to slow down and pay attention to what’s going on around you. The time’s right to reflect on what you’re trying to accomplish, while also making sure that your next steps are the best ones to take at this time.  If all else fails, just lose yourself in the festive celebrations!


Cancer (June 22 – July 22)

Best Day:  Saturday 16th

You’ve almost managed to shake off recent problems, and the forces which previously prevented progress will soon moved on to plague other less fortunate signs.  This will leave you with optimism, and the benefit of hindsight.  For now, just enjoy the festivities of the silly season.  


Leo (July 23 – August 23)

Best Day:  Tuesday 19th

Congratulations are in order.  You’ve survived some brutally challenging moments and emerged relatively unscathed.  Your reward?  A generous portion of self-confidence and a replenished cash flow.  There’s also no better time to drop your duties and party – you now have the stamina to squeeze every ounce of fun out of the festive season.


Virgo (August 24 – September 22)

Best Day:  Thursday 21st

Despite the festivities, for a while you’d do better to avoid some of your zodiac neighbours. While they’re busy socialising, Mercury still retrograde suggests that you should be searching out some inner peace. In any case, the world might appear too trivial for your sensitivities right now.


Libra (September 23 – October 23)

Best Day:  Wednesday 20th

Don’t underestimate your own abilities, Libra.  Thanks to a retrograde Mercury, you’ve recently come through a trial amazingly unharmed.  People aren’t just being kind by lending support – you have something special to offer and they know it.  The 20th is a personal-power day.  Make the most of it.  


Scorpio (October 24 – November 22)

Best Day: Thursday 21st

Thanks to a retrograde Mercury, some plans may be compromised by a lack of funds – but don’t let this ruin an otherwise fabulous festive week.  Rather than worry about what you have and don’t have, focus on the love that surrounds you.  Go make the most of the famous Scorpio charm.


Sagittarius (November 23 – December 21)

Best Day: Sunday 17th

Look forward to a fun festive season, with romance being a happy distraction.  Singles meet someone new who sparks the imagination.  Couples are happy to party together, both in at out of the bedroom.  Money’s not too much of a problem.  Just take care not to overspend.


Capricorn (December 22 – January 20)

Best Day:  Friday 15th

Mercury retrograde triggers change, particularly in relationships.  Let curiosity lead you to alternative people, places and ideas.  Any time lost from work will be amply compensated by the inspiration you get from a newfound sense of festive fun, and romance.  Perhaps some extra adventure too.    


Aquarius (January 21 – February 18)

Best Day:  Saturday 16th

Aquarians adore being nestled in the company of loved ones. But this festive week pushes you beyond your usual social circle, with someone treating you like royalty in the process. If this feels a bit strange, get used to it. You’ve supported enough people in the past. Now it’s your turn.


Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Best Day:  Sunday 17th

Thanks to Mercury still moving backwards, it’s likely that very little will get done this week.  Grab this time for a break or spend festive times with new and old friends.  The planets also support a sensual mood, quashing any inhibitions.  Romantic pleasures are there for the taking.
