IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY:
The moon's eclipse of Mercury on your birthday warns there will be times when your emotions get the better of common sense over the coming year. What you need to aim for is a healthy balance between the two. Love and logic both have their place.
ARIES (March 21 – April 20):
Don't take sides or play favourites today. In fact, steer clear of contentious issues – and hot-headed people – altogether if you can. No matter how hard you try to be fair you will make more enemies than friends.
TAURUS (April 21 – May 21):
You are being too serious about something that is of no importance in the greater scheme of things. Focus on what makes you feel good, what makes you laugh, what makes you glad to be alive. Nothing else matters.
GEMINI (May 22 – June 21):
It may seem as if someone you live or work with is trying to undermine your efforts but in reality you are reading too much into a situation that is quite straightforward. Don't listen to what they say – watch what they do.
CANCER (June 22 – July 23):
No matter how annoying certain people get today you must not allow yourself to be provoked. You may be raging on the inside but if you stay calm on the outside it will defuse what could have been a messy situation.
LEO (July 24 – Aug. 23):
A sudden attraction is likely today but it may be more than just romantic. Most likely you will meet someone whose mind is a match for your own, and whose sense of humour has you laughing fit to bust.
VIRGO (Aug. 24 – Sept. 23):
You need to do some serious thinking about a relationship that has brought you a lot of pleasure but also a considerable amount of pain. Is it worth carrying on with? Only you can decide. Make your choice quickly.
LIBRA (Sept. 24 – Oct. 23):
You need to slow down and catch your breath today because what happens over the following three or four days will be both exciting and exhausting. Give your body, your mind and your emotions a rest – they've earned it.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24 – Nov. 22):
If you uncover some juicy information about a friend or work colleague you should keep it to yourself. It will save them from embarrassment – and give you a bargaining chip you may one day be able to use.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 – Dec. 21):
Some people are feeling rather resentful towards you. Why? Because everything you touch turns to gold. It's not your fault you are smack bang in the middle of such a fortunate phase, so don't feel guilty about it.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 – Jan. 20):
The planets warn that although it's right to feel pleased with what you have achieved, it would be wrong to believe it's all plain sailing from now on. A new challenge is heading your way. Be ready for it.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 – Feb. 19):
Stop thinking about what has gone wrong and focus on the many things that are still going right for you. There is no reason at all why you should be in a downbeat mood. Life is good and getting better by the moment.
PISCES (Feb. 20 – March 20):
A friend in need may be the last thing you want to deal with right now but you are not the sort to turn them away. Do what you can to soothe their fears and ease their pain. You'll benefit too, in unexpected ways.
