If you celebrate your birthday this week:
Your Year Ahead
If recent efforts have felt like all pain and no gain, don’t lose heart. Leos now reach a major turning point, and the direction looks positive. Basically, it comes down to trusting your instincts and acting on them. For many, this will mean a new career or retraining. Travel’s not off the list of possibilities, either. And why not take a chance on love? After all, here’s a year when your charisma and playfulness are all but irresistible.
Aries (March 21 - April 20)
This week sees a retreat into privacy. A secret love affair may begin, or perhaps entanglements from the past influence the present. There’ll be moments when you need total peace and quiet, so use whatever excuse you need to reject intrusive invitations.
Taurus (April 21 - May 20)
This week could test your Taurean sense of stability. Financial uncertainty features, so avoid get-rich-quick schemes. The same goes for former lovers who try to stray back within reach. It might be wise to remember why you broke up in the first place.
Gemini (May 21 to June 21)
They say everything passes, but better times can’t happen soon enough. You could do with some light relief. In the meantime, if others are still out to undermine you, Mars provides cosmic carte blanche to regain control. This time, you get the upper hand.
Cancer (June 22 - July 22)
It’s difficult to always please others, and sometimes you just can’t please anyone. Tension can make you feel tetchy, and right now you need to keep a cool head. If you’re feeling crowded, break away for a while. A supportive cosmos encourages solitude.
Leo (July 23 - August 23)
Someone’s very hot under the collar, and is righteously laying down the law or simply making a nuisance of themselves. You may find this individual either at home or at work. So, should you confront - or ignore this insensitive bully? Best to just step away.
Virgo (August 24 - September 22)
We live on a planet where not everyone will always agree. End result? A battle of wills. In keeping with this spirit, the week offers the odd detour from polite conversation. Words may be spoken in haste and in hindsight, with regret. Not to worry - time heals all.
Libra (September 23 - October 23)
You often produce your best results when working in a team effort. Of course, it takes the right combination of people to bring about success, and this is where problems might arise. Stay patient, and let everyone settle. Don’t give up on others too soon.
Scorpio (October 24 - November 22)
You’re not done yet, Scorpio. Sure, you could be questioning if it’s all worth it - or whether you should abandon a fruitless quest. All you need is a new perspective, and plenty of fresh air. Step out in the elements - a few days break should do it.
Sagittarius (November 23 - December 21
If feeling insecure, don’t. You judge yourself way too harshly. Others don’t. You really can be your own worst critic, Sagittarius - most of the time not even realising just how loved and needed you are. A little self-confidence can go a long way.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 20)
Finances could get a much needed boost as job prospects improve. Or someone close does well in the cash stakes, and you get to share some of their spoils. Looking for love, Capricorn? You may be taken by surprise while gazing in another direction.
Aquarius (January 21 - February 18)
You finally reap the rewards for having lived a little more frugally. This week, finances should free up to allow some small indulgences, and a quick holiday isn’t out of the question. What’s more, everyone’s aware of how truly wonderful you can be. Love flows.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
It’s long overdue, but this week - life finally moves forward. Working today for tomorrow’s pleasures actually begins to feel worthwhile again. It’s time to reconnect with like-minded souls and set a plan in motion. Once you take the lead, others will follow.
