IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY

Your task for the coming year is to live in the moment and not give too much thought as to how your dreams are going to come true. The universe will both guide and protect you, so there is no need to make plans or promises.

ARIES (March 21 - April 20):

An offer you think cannot be refused MUST be refused, at least in the short-term. The planets warn that if you take it at face value you run the risk of giving far more than you get, so tone down your excitement and maybe think again.

TAURUS (April 21 - May 21):

Somewhere along the line you made a promise that you would like to get out of but friends and family are demanding that you live up to it. And so you must. If you go back on your word the damage to your reputation will be immense.

GEMINI (May 22 - June 21):

If you reveal too much about your plans today you are sure to regret it. Keep your thoughts to yourself and keep in mind at all times that the less others know about what you are up to the more successful you will be.

CANCER (June 22 - July 23):

Mercury’s link to Pluto warns that if you make claims you don’t know are true you will open yourself up to all manner of criticism. You may say you don’t care what others think of you but a harsh judgment could still do you harm.

LEO (July 24 - Aug. 23):

You may be of the opinion that to get ahead in the game of life you have to push yourself hard but that’s not true. The best way to get ahead is to know that what you are doing is morally right, then you won’t have to force it.

VIRGO (Aug. 24 - Sept. 23):

You may find it hard to believe that everything is going to work out for the best but there’s no doubt it will, so stop worrying and start looking on the bright side for a change. How you view the world is how your world will be.

LIBRA (Sept. 24 - Oct. 23):

It may at times be annoying that not everyone sees things the same way as you but if they did life would be hugely boring, which is far worse. Enjoy the different people you meet and the different opinions they hold, today and every day.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24 - Nov. 22):

Mercury’s link to your ruler Pluto suggests you are now in a position to impress some very important people, but you must not exaggerate what you can do. Just be yourself and let them take you or reject you as you are. They’ll take you!

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 - Dec. 21):

You have a tendency to put off making decisions until the last possible moment and sometimes it works and sometimes it does not. Today’s cosmic alignment suggests most strongly that if you hesitate you could lose out big time, so act now!

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 - Jan. 20):

You need to let certain people know that you will never allow them to have any kind of hold over you. You don’t have to be nasty about it but you do have to spell out in plain language that you are your own boss – and mean it!

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 - Feb. 19):

If you feel like doing something out of the ordinary today by all means go right ahead, but don’t make it so outrageous that you leave yourself open to criticism – or worse! The last thing you need is to give your enemies a weapon to hurt you with.

PISCES (Feb. 20 - Mar. 20):

You need to take care today that your sentiments about a certain issue are not so obvious that it encourages others to play on your feelings for their own benefit. Try to disguise your sensitivities so they don’t make you such an easy target.
