With Venus linked to Jupiter on your birthday you will take your pleasures where you find them over the coming year. The only thing you need to watch out for is that your pleasure does not make life difficult for the people you love. Think before you act.

ARIES (March 21 - April 20):

If you want to strike out in a new direction don’t think about it, just do it. If you insist on waiting until the moment is right that moment will either never come or you will dream up a thousand reasons for not moving forward, so get busy.

TAURUS (April 21 - May 21):

Don’t believe everything you hear or see today because there will be a lot of confusion in the air, and maybe some deliberate deception as well. The best way to see clearly through the fog and the fear is to listen to what your inner voice tells you.

GEMINI (May 22 - June 21):

You may be immensely popular with friends and work colleagues right now but a Venus-Jupiter link warns that not everyone favors you, so you still need to be on your guard. Make sure everyone you deal with over the next 24 hours can be trusted.

CANCER (June 22 - July 23):

You need to recognize that until you get your personal life sorted out you won’t be able to focus on your work. The message of the planets today is that you need to face up to emotional problems, then deal with them once and for all.

LEO (July 24 - Aug. 23):

You may think you can clear your workload in record time today and then be free to start the weekend early but don’t be too sure. It may take more time than expected to get through the backlog of issues that other people have dumped on you.

VIRGO (Aug. 24 - Sept. 23):

You must not let your feelings get in the way of the facts today. On the home front especially you need to look at each and every situation according to what is likely to happen, not according to what you or loved ones would prefer to happen.

LIBRA (Sept. 24 - Oct. 23):

Short journeys will be enjoyable today and you could meet someone who sets your heart racing. However, there is a downside in that Venus, your ruler and planet of love, is at odds with Jupiter, planet of excess. First impressions could be misleading.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24 - Nov. 22):

You may be doing well financially but don’t forget to make time for your nearest and dearest. No amount of money can replace the unconditional love you get from those you are closest to emotionally. Let partners and family members know how much you care.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 - Dec. 21):

Go out and have a good time. Live up to your reputation as a party person. If you deny yourself a bit of fun now you may regret it later when you no longer have time to laugh and sing as there is too much work to be done.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 - Jan. 20):

You may be of the opinion that you have missed out in some way in recent weeks but you will more than make up for it between now and the end of the year. Clear the decks of work today, then treat yourself to a weekend to remember.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 - Feb. 19):

Be generous with others on every level today. It may be easier to condemn some people for the stupid things they have done but they are human like you and we all make mistakes. Forgiveness is essential – without it the world would be chaos.

PISCES (Feb. 20 - Mar. 20):

If someone in a position of authority insists you do something you know is wrong you must be strong and refuse point blank. Just because they outrank you does not mean you have to follow orders. Your conscience must be your only guide.
