You won’t be short of opinions this year and you won’t hesitate to let everyone within earshot know all about them. Let others get a word in edgeways occasionally as you are not the only one with good ideas. Communication must be a two-way street.

ARIES (March 21 - April 20):

You are sure to go overboard about someone today. It may be the start of a beautiful friendship, or it may just be a passing fancy, but either way it will be fun, so forget about the serious side of life and enjoy yourself.

TAURUS (April 21 - May 21):

You may not be able to explain to others how you have reached a certain conclusion but deep down you know it is right. The planets indicate you won’t be in the least bit hesitant – you know what you want and you know how to get it.

GEMINI (May 22 - June 21):

This is an excellent time for travel and social activities and with Mercury, your ruler, on good terms with larger-than-life Jupiter this weekend life will be one big party. You could also meet someone you fall head over heels for.

CANCER (June 22 - July 23):

Money may be important to you but it’s not the only thing that makes you happy. The cosmic picture over the next 48 hours encourages you to forget about cash flow problems and focus on family and friends and affairs of the heart.

LEO (July 24 - Aug. 23):

The only thing that matters now is that you focus 100 per cent on what is important to you personally. That won’t be difficult as Mercury and Jupiter join forces in your sign, making it easy to define your aims and ambitions.

VIRGO (Aug. 24 - Sept. 23):

You will have to put up with people who, for one reason or another, don’t want to see you succeed. As a general rule the more others criticize you over the next 48 hours the more sure you can be that you are doing the right thing.

LIBRA (Sept. 24 - Oct. 23):

This is an especially good time for social activities but you fear you won’t find the time to do what makes you happiest. Just because your in-tray is piled high does not mean you can’t have fun. Give yourself a day or two off.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24 - Nov. 22):

By all means look up to someone but don’t for a minute believe that they can do no wrong – because they will prove you wrong! The planets warn that your respect for a certain individual is based more on emotion than logic.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 - Dec. 21):

Today’s link between Mercury, planet of communication, and Jupiter, your ruler, will help you to reach out to people who share your passion and your principles. Together you will achieve something that makes the world sit up and take notice.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 - Jan. 20):

There is a lot of gossip going around and quite a bit of it seems to be about you. This is one of those times when you should close your ears to what others are saying and do only what you want to do. Nothing else matters.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 - Feb. 19):

You will be flavour of the month with just about everyone over the next 48 hours. By all means enjoy yourself but don’t get carried away and give someone the idea that they mean more to you romantically than is actually the case.

PISCES (Feb. 20 - Mar. 20):

You may be tempted to retreat into your shell and refuse to join in with social activities this weekend but that would be a shame. The planets indicate you have a lot to offer and it just won’t be the same without you involved.
