A sun-Pluto link on your birthday means the coming year will be make or break for you. The more ambitious an Aries you are the more you will find yourself in the spotlight. It may not always be comfortable but you can learn to enjoy it.

ARIES (March 21 - April 20):

You will be challenged like never before this weekend, and you will rise to that challenge and overcome it with ease. But don’t start thinking it will be this easy every day – on the contrary, there are even bigger challenges to face up ahead.

TAURUS (April 21 - May 21):

You must listen to what other people tell you over the next 48 hours. The fact that you don’t want to hear means that you need to hear for the sake of your own mental and emotional wellbeing. Don’t be too headstrong for your own good.

GEMINI (May 22 - June 21):

If you want something done this weekend you will need to get help from people who know their business inside out. You may be a gifted amateur but the planets indicate that only a true professional can make it happen for you.

CANCER (June 22 - July 23):

It may seem as if someone in a position of authority has got it in for you but it’s more likely that you are reading too much into the situation. Keep your doubts to yourself and, as much as you can, keep a low profile as well.

LEO (July 24 - Aug. 23):

Promise yourself that you won’t get involved in any kind of fight or feud, and make sure you keep that promise. As the sun, your ruler, is at odds with Pluto today, a minor falling out could easily turn into a full-scale war. You don’t need that.

VIRGO (Aug. 24 - Sept. 23):

Most of the time you think with your head first and only bring in what your heart tells you later on. However, the planets warn that everything will be more emotionally charged than usual this weekend, so don’t be surprised if, this time, your heart wins.

LIBRA (Sept. 24 - Oct. 23):

If a partnership is not working out the way you wanted it to most likely it’s because you are expecting too much of each other. Sit down together and discuss your individual needs and desires – and be honest, because without honesty it may never work.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24 - Nov. 22):

Keep your more outrageous thoughts to yourself over the next 48 hours. They may not seem outrageous to you but very few people share your ability to look at life in a dispassionate way – and even fewer have the guts to act on what they see.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 - Dec. 21):

The sun in Aries at this time of year makes you feel like a winner, and indeed you are, but because the sun is currently under the influence of power planet Pluto you need to take care when dealing with authority figures. You’ve got enough opponents.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 - Jan. 20):

Leave the past where it belongs and focus only on the future. Today’s sun-Pluto link will give you the touch of ruthlessness you need to cut out of your life anything that is not beneficial. That doesn’t just mean possessions, it means people too.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 - Feb. 19):

Generally speaking you don’t like taking orders but the current cosmic picture demands that you follow what someone higher up the professional ladder says you should be doing. The most important thing by far now is that you stay in their good books.

PISCES (Feb. 20 - Mar. 20):

Who do you trust? How do you know you can trust them? These will be the kind of questions you will be asking yourself this weekend, and there may be no easy answers. All you can really do is stay alert and – most importantly – trust yourself.
