IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY:
Map out roughly what it is you wish to accomplish over the coming 12 months, but don't make it a binding plan. Each day will bring events and opportunities you were not expecting, so you need to stay flexible. There are many paths to happiness.
ARIES (March 21 - April 20):
Throw caution to the wind and take a few risks this weekend. Whether they pay off remains to be seen but at least you'll be doing something, and that's better than nothing. You've got to give some to get some.
TAURUS (April 21 - May 21):
There are a lot of shady characters milling about in your world at the moment, so be careful. Be especially wary of those who promise there is no risk to what they suggest. If their lips move, they're lying!
GEMINI (May 22 - June 21):
Don't take life too seriously. The Sun linked to Mercury, your ruler, makes you think hard about what's going on in the world but ask yourself: what can you really change? Keep both your head and your heart light.
CANCER (June 22 - July 23):
If someone annoys you this weekend you must resist the urge to hit back in kind. Chances are they are being deliberately provocative. They want you to overreact so you do something stupid – and make them look good.
LEO (July 24 - Aug. 23):
People have different personalities and see things in different ways. What seems logical to you may be impossible for someone else to understand. Keep that thought in mind this weekend – it will make life easier for you.
VIRGO (Aug. 24 - Sept. 23):
If you find it hard to focus on what you are supposed to be doing, you might as well give up and do something else. There is no point pushing yourself in a certain direction if your heart is not in it.
LIBRA (Sept. 24 - Oct. 23):
Pace yourself carefully over the next 48 hours and don't let others bully you into doing more than you can comfortably handle. If you start the weekend in a mad rush you will be expected to finish it that way, too.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24 - Nov. 22):
Don't read too much into what other people are saying because it's unlikely they really mean it. Your problem at the moment is that you are a bit too touchy for your own good. Lighten up, it's life.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 - Dec. 21):
You will be on the move more than usual this weekend, but you will also encounter more than the average number of hold-ups. Don't worry too much about your destination – enjoy the ride, wherever it takes you.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 - Jan. 20):
You will need to make a conscious effort to stay calm this weekend, especially if you are dealing with people whose minds move more slowly than your own. Not everyone is lucky enough to have a big brain like yours.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 - Feb. 19):
You can be rather forthright in your opinions and there is a danger this weekend that you will say something that causes a hugely negative reaction. But what of it? It's your role in life to be provocative.
PISCES (Feb. 20 - Mar. 20):
Are you the kind of person who learns from mistakes? Or are you the kind who makes them over and over again? You'll find out this weekend. If you do get something wrong, put it right at the earliest opportunity.
