See what's in store!
If you celebrate your birthday this week:
Your Year Ahead
Spend this birthday year exploring every possibility that you can imagine – in the bedroom and boardroom.  Then pick out the most practical and work toward achieving goals of lasting value.  If you want to check out who and what’s available, it’s only a lack of confidence stopping you.   Mars creates a super-sexy period.  Secret fantasies are swiftly unveiled. If you’re still keen to keep up professional momentum, you simply have to mix business with pleasure.  But don’t expect a series of one-night-stands.  Here’s a time when you crave long term commitment – so let your love grow.  You’re on much safer ground emotionally by year’s end.
Aries (March 21 – April 20)
Best Day:  Saturday 19th
You’re an optimist, born believing everything will work out fine.  What’s more, you have the cheek of the devil, often embellishing your achievements – and usually getting away with it.  Sometimes, though, you overstep the mark.  Not so now.  Aries communication skills are legendary and you’re back in control.  Even conflict could work in your favour.
Taurus (April 21 – May 20)
Best Day:   Sunday 20th
Life can be tough.  Still, we must all assume that better times lie ahead.  Lucky for you, mighty Mars does too.  Your professional standing is in line for a boost, with opportunities coming from unusual sources.  Indeed, being in the right place and making the right contacts are important ingredients to current success – so just go for it!
Gemini (May 21 – June 21)
Best Day:   Monday 21st
Go easy, Gemini. You can’t treat life as a battleground and not expect conflict. Very few are prepared to compromise with an arm twisted behind their back. If it’s peace you’re after – consider waving the white flag.  And if you hear a clanging alarm, that’ll be your finances giving you a wake up call.  Thankfully, fortunes change soon.    
Cancer (June 22 – July 22)
Best Day:  Wednesday 23rd
You long to confide in someone, but you’re not sure who to trust.  Holding your cards too close to your chest isn’t the best idea, since you need someone to help you process all those confused thoughts.  Just don’t call that gossipy friend, or tell someone you casually know.  Dial up a true confidante.  You could also book a spa session to simply relax.  
Leo (July 23 – August 23)
Best Day:  Friday 18th
When those around you find their affairs riddled with complications, lucky lions will be purring with contentment.  But beware:  Mars is running riot and bragging about your triumphs – so it’s best to keep your most delicious conquests to yourself.  Truth is, others are just a tad jealous.  Sometimes it seems that Leos do have all the fun!
Virgo (August 24 – September 22)
Best Day:  Tuesday 22nd
Patient Virgos should finally hear news which puts an end to frustrating delays.  Life feels anything but dull.  It’s also a major money week, with cash flowing in as well as out.  Neglected romance should also strengthen.  Singles feel more confident about flaunting their assets.  Something for everyone, it seems.
Libra (September 23 – October 23)
Best Day:   Sunday 20th
Communication is your sword and shield this week, but there comes a point when words aren’t enough and those splendid ideas must be put to the test.  The urge for independence also prompts change in relationships.  For singles:  someone older becomes a serious suitor.   Established couples should hold on tight to what’s worthy.
Scorpio (October 24 – November 22)
Best Day:   Thursday 24th
A little flirtation is all well and good, but only to a point.  Someone could take your harmless remarks more seriously, expecting you to follow through.  On the flip side, could someone be stringing you along?   Either way, if you’re not ready to go there – simply enjoy the attention and chemical attraction.  What’s the rush, anyway?
Sagittarius (November 23 – December 21)
Best Day:  Friday 18th
It’s time for a reality check, Sagittarius.  Try to regain control, otherwise the cosmic forecast is for more upheaval.  Have a little burning ceremony for any faded dreams that have already passed on.  Even if you feel overwhelmed by the enormity of this task, the best course of action is to just get on with it.  It will be cathartic.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 20) 
Best Day:  Monday 21st
It’s in your nature to save for a rainy day.  Good news indeed, at a time when the focus falls on money. Romance features just as strongly, so why not mix business with pleasure?  This week suggests love that’s attentive.  Singles flirt; couples renew their passions.  Friendships also grow, with established bonds becoming stronger.
Aquarius (January 21 – February 18)
Best Day:  Wednesday 23rd
If you’ve felt overburdened with responsibilities, delightful Venus lifts your mood.  Expect a busy social scene and an equally agile love life.   With finances also improving, you’re not averse to the occasional spending spree.  No surprises, then, if loved ones benefit from your generosity.  Travel if you can – perhaps a cosy break-for-two?
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Best Day:  Saturday 19th
Feeling frazzled? Not surprising. Times have been tough, with money issues demanding more attention.  Good news: stress finally starts to ease, to the point where you can relax.  Quality time isn’t so easy to come by these days, so accept this short spell of fun and friendship as a gift from the heavens.  Whatever happens, simply enjoy.
