With Mercury and Pluto acting together on your birthday, your way with words will be matched only by your determination to get ahead in the world. Success is yours for the asking. Fame and fortune await you.

ARIES (March 21 – April 20):

Make yourself heard this weekend. Be bold, be brash and above all be the very best at what you do. And don’t be afraid to make a few enemies – it’s a sign that you are taking the game seriously.

TAURUS (April 21 – May 21):

All you have to do is snap your fingers and people will come running to assist you. Whether you use this ability for good ends or bad is up to you but if there is something you desire it will be yours.

GEMINI (May 22 – June 21):

With Mercury, your ruler, linked to Pluto in the business area of your chart this is a good time for making deals. Your powers of persuasion will be hard to resist, so hold out for what you want most.

CANCER (June 22 – July 23):

Cosmic activity in your opposite sign of Capricorn urges you to get serious about partnership activities. You cannot afford to be halfhearted this weekend – give it all you’ve got or let someone else take your place.

LEO (July 24 – Aug. 23):

f you act confidently and put your case forward forcefully over the next 48 hours, there is a very good chance others will do what you ask of them. However, be careful not to make your requests sound like threats.

VIRGO (Aug. 24 – Sept. 23):

Today’s Mercury-Pluto link will sharpen your mind to such an extent that you will see what is going to happen way ahead of everyone else. But it will also sharpen your tongue. Try not to hurt other people’s feelings.

LIBRA (Sept. 24 – Oct. 23):

You are worrying about something that will probably never happen. The only way to get over it is to go off and do something that requires your full attention, something that leaves you no time to torment yourself.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24 – Nov. 22):

You will do as you please this weekend and if others don’t like it that’s just too bad. Both at home and at work you will be a law unto yourself and, strangely, people will respect you more for it.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 – Dec. 21):

You will have to make a difficult decision over the next 48 hours, then you will have to act quickly and effectively. There is a lot at stake, including money and reputation, so make sure you’re on top of your game.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 – Jan. 20):

There is a danger that you will do something for no better reason than someone dares you to do it. It’s not like you to be so irresponsible, so sit yourself down and give yourself a talking to. You have nothing to prove.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 – Feb. 19):

You are advised to think carefully before making your next move. In fact, if there is any doubt at all in your mind it might be best to stay where you are. You don’t have to be the first to act.

PISCES (Feb. 20 – Mar. 20):

Do you speak up to help other people or to put them in their place? It’s up to you, but being the nice guy you are it will probably be the former. Ultimately, the more you help others the more you help yourself.
