IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY
You must not let your emotions get the better of you over the coming year. You may be tempted to cut ties that only seem to bring you pain, but if you give it time you will find that things improve. Ultimately, life is only as tough as you choose to make it.
ARIES (March 21 - April 20):
What some people say and what some people mean will be two entirely different things today. Because of that it's okay to be a bit suspicious but don't go treating everyone as if they are trying to cheat you. Most people are still honest.
TAURUS (April 21 - May 21):
You may be more robust than many but some people are ridiculously sensitive and you would be wise to keep that fact in mind today. If you want to get things done you should make it a policy to say nice things only, for now.
GEMINI (May 22 - June 21):
Think with your head, not with your heart. The most important thing as the new week begins is that you avoid making the kind of silly mistakes that so many other people make. Be rational and always put practical considerations first.
CANCER (June 22 - July 23):
If there is a creative or artistic project you have been struggling to finish the next four or five days will be critical. Either give it your all and get it done or give up on it altogether and move on to something new.
LEO (July 24 - Aug. 23):
Your dominant position will be challenged over the next few days and you will have to fight hard to retain your status. Anyone who thinks you will roll over and give up obviously does not know you too well, which is a point in your favour.
VIRGO (Aug. 24 - Sept. 23):
You are advised to hold fire and not be too pushy over the next 24 hours. No matter how ambitious a Virgo you may be there is only so much you can do in any one day, so conserve your energy for when you most need it.
LIBRA (Sept. 24 - Oct. 23):
You would be wise to let friends and work colleagues express their opinions today, even if they clash with your own. At some stage in the very near future you are going to need their assistance, so try not to turn them against you.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24 - Nov. 22):
If you take a negative view of what is going on you may get stuck in one of those woe-is-me moods that are so hard to shift. Make a conscious mental and emotional effort to look on the bright side today – it's always there.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 - Dec. 21):
There is something that needs to be done as a matter of urgency. The longer you leave it the more you will have to rush things when you do eventually get started and that could lead to mistakes. Draw up a "to do" list and stick to it.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 - Jan. 20):
Find a nice quiet place where you can switch off from the world around you and get your thoughts together. And remember: If you want to find peace in your life as a whole you first need to find it in your own heart and head.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 - Feb. 19):
If you want to convince authority figures that you know what you are talking about then you must back up your opinions with facts. If you can't do that convincingly then maybe it would be best if you just stayed quiet today.
PISCES (Feb. 20 - Mar. 20):
A little co-operation will go a long way today, especially as so many people seem to be looking for excuses to start a fight. Victory does not always go to the bravest or the brightest – sometimes it goes to those who get themselves organized.
