If your birthday is today:
If you demand freedom for yourself it is only right that you should grant it to other people too. At some stage this year you will be invited to stop trying to organize a loved one's life so closely. Let them break free. Let them be different. It will draw you closer together.
ARIES (March 21 - April 20):
If there is someone you need to impress then speak up now and let them know what you are thinking. You might be tempted to exaggerate your brilliance to prove what a wonderful person you are, but better that than you say nothing at all.
TAURUS (April 21 - May 21):
Take your foot off the gas and take life at a more enjoyable pace. You seem to be under the impression that you have to work twice as hard as those around you, but it isn't true. Strangely, you'll get more done today if you try to do less.
GEMINI (May 22 - June 21):
People tend to respond better to kindness than to coercion, and with your ruler Mercury turning retrograde today it's highly unlikely that you will be able to force them to do what you want anyway. Think before you speak and say only nice things.
CANCER (June 22 - July 23):
You may be under a lot of pressure at the moment but so much of it appears to be self-induced. The message of the stars as the new week begins is that you need to be more relaxed about what you are doing. Be kind to yourself, and others will be kind to you too.
LEO (July 24 - Aug. 23):
Don't plan anything too serious for the next day or two as the planets warn you need to avoid situations where the consequences could be painful if things go wrong. You may think you are tough enough to take it, but why hurt yourself when you don't have to?
VIRGO (Aug. 24 - Sept. 23):
If you need to make up with someone who, for whatever reason, you recently had words with, let them know now, this very minute, that you want to be friends again. Your relationship is too precious to let it fall apart over something trivial.
LIBRA (Sept. 24 - Oct. 23):
Sometimes you can be a bit too negative and self-critical and with mind planet Mercury turning retrograde in your sign today you may need to force yourself to look on the bright side of life. The fact is you are better off than most people.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24 - Nov. 22):
Take life at a more civilized pace and ignore those who say you should be pushing yourself harder. You know from long experience that there comes a point where what you put in is more than what you get out. You've reached that point now.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 - Dec. 21):
If you lack enthusiasm for a particular task it might be a wise move to postpone it until your attitude is better. That may be several weeks hence but you are under no obligation to put yourself under pressure. Time is still on your side.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 - Jan. 20):
You may be a perfectionist by nature but common sense tells you it is simply not possible to be the best at everything. Don't compare yourself to other people today or you might end up disillusioned. Lower your expectations - just a little.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 - Feb. 19):
You may know something that others do not but be careful when and how you use that information. It might be fun to drop a few hints but if someone guesses the truth your position will be weakened. Knowledge is power only when it is secret.
PISCES (Feb. 20 - Mar. 20):
There is no need to exaggerate your abilities, not even to get yourself noticed. Employers and other important people are well aware of what you can do, and one of the things they like most about you is your modesty. Don't spoil the effect.
