A Mars-Neptune link on your birthday means you will be in a position to actually help people you care for this year, whereas too often in the past you’ve had to stand by and watch them suffer. Making others feel good will make you feel good too.

ARIES (March 21 - April 20):

You will be unusually cautious this week but that’s no bad thing. This is a time for thinking things through rather than just throwing yourself at life, so get your impulses under control, at least until you find something you know is worthy of your passion.

TAURUS (April 21 - May 21):

This is a good week for meeting with friends and engaging in activities that help other people or even the wider world. Your aims may seem lofty to some but you know there is no point trying to make a difference unless the difference is one that will last.

GEMINI (May 22 - June 21):

Whatever you want out of life you will find a way to get it eventually, but you might get it quicker – and easier too – if you make friends with people who share your outlook on life. You don’t have to do it all on your own Gemini.

CANCER (June 22 - July 23):

Do something out of the ordinary this week – the kind of thing you have never done before but secretly wish you had. Don’t worry that loved ones might not approve (hopefully they won’t even know) because this is about you and your needs alone.

LEO (July 24 - Aug. 23):

Think about your long-term goals rather than short-term gain this week. That applies to all areas of your life but especially to your career. Visualize where you would like to be five or even 10 years from now and start working your way toward it.

VIRGO (Aug. 24 - Sept. 23):

Partnerships feature prominently in your life at the moment and this week’s Mars-Neptune link will bring you into contact with someone who could become much more than just another friend. You have so much in common, and so much to share.

LIBRA (Sept. 24 - Oct. 23):

The tougher the challenge the more you like it and that’s just as well because the challenge you are most likely to face this week will take all your mental and physical energy to meet and beat. You may have to push yourself further than ever before.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24 - Nov. 22):

Things of a creative or artistic nature will go well for you this week. They might go even better though if you make a conscious effort not to be quite so assertive. Combine your natural leadership qualities with a large dose of good humor.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 - Dec. 21):

You are in a tough-minded mood at the moment and anyone who thinks they can persuade you to do things you don’t want to do is going to be disappointed. Hopefully they will get the message and leave you alone. If not . . .

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 - Jan. 20):

You will meet some interesting people this week and some of the discussions you have will be eye-opening for them and for you. The fact is you have been taking life a bit too much for granted of late and need your ideas shaken up a little.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 - Feb. 19):

Make sure you are not being taken advantage of either in your work environment or in your social circle. Some people seem to believe they can just hold on to your coat tails and get a free ride. Time to introduce them to reality!

PISCES (Feb. 20 - Mar. 20):

Something you start during the early part of the week will develop into a project of huge importance to you. If your name isn’t yet in the headlines it won’t be long before it is – and, yes, it will be for all the right reasons.
