IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY
Your powers of persuasion will move to a higher level this year, enabling you to convince others that you know what you are talking about. Sooner or later, of course, your words will be put to the test, so don't go making claims that may not be true.
ARIES (March 21 – April 20):
Not everyone shares your principles and beliefs, so don't take it as a personal affront if others disagree with you today – which they will. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions, that's what makes the world such an interesting place.
TAURUS (April 21 – May 21):
You may be tempted to give up on something that just won't go the way you want it to go. Don't. Later this week something will happen that makes you realize that your slow progress is just a temporary blip – a necessary one too.
GEMINI (May 22 – June 21):
The planets warn that if you come on too strong today someone you work or socialize with will be so intimidated that in future they will try to keep a distance, which is not what you want at all. Think before you speak.
CANCER (June 22 – July 23):
You seem to have made up your mind about an issue and the more others try to get you to see it in a different light, the more determined you are to follow your own interpretation. That's fine – so long as it's the correct interpretation.
LEO (July 24 – Aug. 23):
Someone whose personality is as strong as your own will refuse to follow your lead today and, to say the least, you won't be too happy about it. But what can you do? Let them do their own thing. You don't need them anyway.
VIRGO (Aug. 24 – Sept. 23):
Try not to waste time and energy on people who are clearly not worth the effort. Certain individuals will always be ungrateful no matter what you do – it's in their nature – so identify them and avoid them, as far as you can.
LIBRA (Sept. 24 – Oct. 23):
Anyone who disagrees with your right to dictate terms will be out in the cold before they know what is happening. Most of the time you are quite happy-go-lucky but today the happiest and luckiest people will be those who stay out of your way!
SCORPIO (Oct. 24 – Nov. 22):
Try to avoid petty arguments, especially the sort that drag on for days. Yes, it may look to others as if you are taking the easy way out but the fact is you cannot be bothered to waste time on issues that don't mean a thing to you.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 – Dec. 21):
The situation you have to deal with today is of a kind you would prefer to avoid, but once you get stuck into it you will find it provides the kind of challenges that require brain power to resolve – and that's the kind you enjoy.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 – Jan. 20):
There is every chance that you will lose your temper with a work colleague over the next 24 hours. But don't get so angry that you risk bursting a blood vessel. Why put your health at risk over someone else's stupidity?
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 – Feb. 19):
You will be a hero to some and a villain to others today – there will be no in-between. Whatever it is you say that causes a fuss don't let anyone tell you that you should have kept quiet. You have every right to speak your mind.
PISCES (Feb. 20 – Mar. 20):
The sun in your sign boosts your confidence and makes you believe that all things are possible – but others, it seems, still need convincing. You can, if you try, win people round to your point of view. The question is, can you be bothered?
