If you celebrate your birthday this week:
Your Year Ahead
Clear out what’s no longer needed. Have that difficult conversation, open your heart and get any stuck energy flowing again. It won’t be all roses this year but anything’s better than living in sufferance. Be honest, otherwise tensions will mount until something snaps - and the only thing that you want to break are the chains encircling your heart. Set your emotions free, and happiness will follow.
Aries (March 21 - April 20)
You’re not exempt from this week’s cosmic madness. If you can make sense of the next few days, great - but should the going get too tough, escape. It may be the only way to get through the week sane. Allow yourself the occasional moment of serenity.
Taurus (April 21 - May 20)
This week’s success rate depends on how well you handle difficult people and situations - but do remember that grievances need to be aired before they can be resolved. Last minute changes of plan could cause you to scatter energies. If entrusted with a secret, never disclose it.
Gemini (May 21 to June 21)
Your tenacity and hard work finally finds its audience - so take advantage of any good press. But fame of any kind is usually fleeting. Make sure you record all praise so that, in the future, you can hold others to their word. If they want what you have so badly, get it in writing.
Cancer (June 22 - July 22)
The planets encourage a more intuitive approach. A barrage of new thoughts and creative solutions fills your mind. But be wary of those who would exploit you. Don’t be influenced about how to feel, or what to believe. Stay true to you.
Leo (July 23 - August 23)
The word failure isn’t in the Leo vocabulary. This week, though, life becomes a tad more difficult. If things don’t go to plan, relax. Try to calm that worried mind of yours. Sure, there’ll be some changes - but endings often bring fabulous new beginnings.
Virgo (August 24 - September 22)
Finding that perfect balance between your personal and professional life can be challenging. For the first part of the week you may prefer to take a back seat at work, to devote more time to home. Just remember: you can’t help those who refuse to be helped.
Libra (September 23 - October 23)
If someone’s trying to swindle you, more fool them. Even though they’re being underhanded - you won’t miss a trick. Once the Libran mind locks in its co-ordinates, your intuitive aim never misses the target. Opponents - take cover.
Scorpio (October 24 - November 22)
It seems that the more contact you have with others this week, the more cash you part with. Yes, Scorpio - it’s open-wallet season. Even if you’re not the one who’s eager to splash out, someone close seems more than happy to spend on your behalf.
Sagittarius (November 23 - December 21)
You’ve half a mind to make a run for it,especially when friends or family intrude or inflict their disapproving views. It’s a confusing week all round, Sagittarius - so the best thing you can do is just go about your business, and ask others to do the same.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 20)
Figure out who’s best at what, and drum up a solid sense of teamwork. Should love or benefits come your way, accept with gratitude. In the same spirit, give openly and rewards will return when you most need them. Some also experience a gentle stroll down memory lane.
Aquarius (January 21 - February 18)
The week finds you in a more serious mood, especially where shared resources and finances are concerned. Use this chance to find a solution to problems, but take care you don’t over-react to constructive criticism. Perhaps someone’s just trying to be helpful?
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
If you’ve fallen into a rut, the planets offer a strong lure towards intrigue. Adrenaline's flowing, and you’re feeling frisky. If you can’t resist the thrill of illicit intimacy, at least take the time to weigh up the odds of discovery. Discretion is the key.
