IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY
No matter how challenging the tasks that face you over the coming 12 months you have what it takes to make a success of them all. You will pass most tests with ease but don't just aim to pass, aim to excel and stand out from the crowd. Be special.
ARIES (March 21 - April 20):
Even if you are the kind of Aries who loves surprises what happens today won't necessarily meet with your approval, especially if the joke is on you. Think of all the times when you've been the prankster and don't be afraid to laugh at yourself.
TAURUS (April 21 - May 21):
Patience and a sense of humour are a must today. Something is about to happen that not only takes you by surprise but makes your plans redundant, much to your annoyance. Something else you may need: a sense of perspective.
GEMINI (May 22 - June 21):
Disruptions are likely across the board today but chances are you won't be as inconvenienced as some people. The good news is that upheavals tend to create new opportunities, so keep your eyes and ears open and be ready to act fast.
CANCER (June 22 - July 23):
Whatever activities you had lined up for the next 24 hours you may have to think again because unforeseen events will change everything. You may also have to let go of a creative or artistic idea you were attached to. It isn't going to work.
LEO (July 24 - Aug. 23):
You will discover something new about a friend or colleague today and although it may shock you a bit you will also be impressed, not least because they managed to keep it a secret so long. But don't go telling everyone. It can still be private.
VIRGO (Aug. 24 - Sept. 23):
Something dramatic will happen today and most likely you won't be that impressed. However, if you keep your wits about you this is one surprise that can be turned in your favour. Someone else's fall from grace could make things easier for you.
LIBRA (Sept. 24 - Oct. 23):
The next 24 hours may be a bit bumpier than usual but that's okay because you are not the sort to panic. You are, however, the sort to go out and spend money to make yourself feel better and that could be a huge mistake.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24 - Nov. 22):
You need to confront a fear that has been holding you back and you need to do it now. A little bit of courage will take you a long way, maybe all the way to a new life and a new way of looking at and thinking about the world.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 - Dec. 21):
Either you will change your mind and annoy other people, or they will change their minds and annoy you. Either way tempers are going to be a bit on the short side over the next 24 hours. Try not to say anything too emotionally damaging.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 - Jan. 20):
Don't waste your time or your energy on someone who seems determined to get under your skin. You can be a bit obsessive at times and if you let this little feud go on it could develop into something quite dangerous. Just walk away.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 - Feb. 19):
Just because you see things in a clear and logical way does not mean other people see with the same kind of eyes or understanding. You will encounter someone today who is rather dull-witted. You have to accept that some people will never "get it".
PISCES (Feb. 20 - Mar. 20):
Most things are going your way at the moment but Saturn, planet of restriction, is still holding you back from following your dream. Take it as a sign that you are not yet ready to make that dream a reality. It will happen when the time is right.
