IF IT'S YOUR BIRTHDAY...
Today: Mercury, planet of the mind, turns direct on your birthday, which suggests that the confusion of recent months will be swept away and replaced with a higher understanding of what life is about and, more importantly, what your role in this life should be. You are about to discover your true vocation. Success and happiness are sure to follow.
Tomorrow: Venus, planet of emotional and material values, aspects Uranus, planet of surprises, on your birthday this year, so you can expect some kind of upheaval in your life over the coming 12 months. The good news is that the angle between these planets is positive, so you will approve of the changes that are made, even though they may be a shock to begin with. Always move with the times - the future is more fun than the past.
ARIES (March 21 - April 20): There seem to be so many paths and so many options open to you now that it may be a bit confusing. Both in your private life and in your work the planets urge you to go with the option that allows you most freedom, even though it may not be so financially rewarding. If you feel restricted you won't be happy no matter how much you earn.
TAURUS (April 21 - May 21): The decisions you make this weekend will have far-reaching consequences, so think carefully before you make your next move. Venus, your ruler, on good terms with Uranus, planet of modernity, urges you to be open to new ideas and new ways of looking at the world. Think above and beyond your usual mental horizons. You'll find the answer you're looking for.
GEMINI (May 22 - June 21): You have taken on a lot of new tasks and responsibilities of late and it is no surprise to find that you are now questioning if that was such a good idea. On the other hand, employers and other important people have been much impressed by your "can do" attitude and will reward you well over the next few weeks. Fortune favours the bold.
CANCER (June 22 - July 23): This is one of the best times of the year for you and this weekend's wonderful Venus-Uranus aspect indicates that if you keep an open mind and if you stay flexible in your responses it will get more wonderful still over the next few days. Do something creative, something that makes the world sit up and take notice of your special talent.
LEO (July 24 - Aug. 23): You will be in an affectionate mood this weekend but because Venus, planet of love, is transiting the most secretive area of your chart you may be keeping your feelings under wraps. If you get the chance to let the object of your affection know how much they mean to you don't let it pass by. You may not get another chance for a long time.
VIRGO (Aug. 24 - Sept. 23): Social invitations will come from all directions this weekend but common sense tells you it isn't going to be possible to honour them all, so choose the one or two that sound the most fun and politely turn down the rest. Your popularity will last longer if you limit your public appearances. Don't give your fans too much of a good thing.
LIBRA (Sept. 24 - Oct. 23): Venus, your ruler, is on ideal terms with Uranus, planet of sudden changes, so even if unexpected things happen this weekend they won't disturb you in the slightest. The sun in Leo urges you to spend time with your friends and not worry too much about your aims and ambitions. Enjoy life for what it is. There is no need to hurry and worry.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24 - Nov. 22): You will be the life and soul of the party this weekend. A glorious Venus -Uranus aspect will bring you out of your shell and you will be at the centre of whatever social event is going on in your neighbourhood - or even, given your current sense of adventure, a neighbourhood far away. Let the real you come out to play.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 - Dec. 21): You have done plenty of looking back and plenty of learning from your mistakes - now you can apply those lessons to both your private life and your career and show the world that you are a force to be reckoned with. On top of that there will be good news about money this weekend - it seems you really can't lose at the moment.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 - Jan. 20): You must be willing to compromise this weekend, even to the extent of admitting that it was you, not other people, who made a mistake. Everyone gets it wrong once in a while - you are nothing special in that regard - but not everyone is intelligent enough to know it or big enough to do something about it. But you are, so get on with it.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 - Feb. 19): A financial windfall will bring a smile to your face this weekend and it won't take you long to find something to spend it on. There will also be good news on the work front where a colleague who has been giving you a tough time is much easier to talk to. Seems it was just a misunderstanding: they thought you had it in for them.
PISCES (Feb. 20 - Mar. 20): It's time to get out and about. It's time to show your face again. You have shut yourself away for too long and if you don't remind the world that you exist it may forget all about you. Creative and romantic activities are under excellent stars, so be bold, be brave and be the kind of Pisces who makes heads turn in admiration.
