Monday 12 January 2009
Aries (Mar21/Apr20) To enhance your chances of succeeding, choose sensible and smart goals. Ask yourself some questions before embarking on anything new for instance: are your aims realistic and attainable in terms of expected time of completion. Although the start of the year is typically a time for making resolutions, avoid chasing too many dreams at once. Remember, self control is a limited resource. Do too much and you will end up achieving nothing.
Taurus (Apr21/May21) A friend or colleague who is generally noted for their energy and headstrong nature is surprisingly listless today. Because they’ve never been very good at communicating, it’s hard to get them to open up to you. In turn, you’ve never been too bothered about how they feel. But you’re changing all the rules today when you might make an all out effort to encourage others to share their feelings, worries and uncertainties.
Gemini (May22/June21) Prepare yourselves for problems if you are travelling; you’re likely to face several delays and hold ups. There will be some useful information shared in conversations. Work on your listening skills or you might talk past someone in your eagerness to move on. Your patience will be severely tested as you need to curb your restlessness and accept that not everything is going to go your way.
Cancer (June22/July23) A self help project teaches you more about yourself than you had first anticipated or bargained for. Not only are you starting to realise how determined you can be when something is important to you, you are respecting others who have talents or abilities you always took for granted. Once you start acknowledging the value of their skills, they will help you with yours. Finally you are starting to get the credit you deserve.
Leo (July24/Aug23) Keep track of every move you make today, just in case you have to retrace your steps. Writing anything important down could be useful if ever you have to supply answers or justify reasons over the days ahead. You’re reminded of something that occurred in your childhood and this colours how you feel about current events. Stop letting an old memory control your thinking. Ignoring fears helps you approach a daunting task with confidence.
Virgo (Aug24/Sept23) Isn’t it about time you let someone close know how you feel about them? If it has suddenly struck you how much you’ve been taking a loved one for granted, or how critical you’ve been towards them lately, it might be a good idea to let them know you haven’t done this intentionally. Someone with a sensitive nature needs some reassurance you still care for them and somehow, you can understand this now.
Libra (Sept24/Oct23) You’ve never been happy with discord; avoid power struggles with people around you today. Getting dragged into a toxic, conflicting environment will not only cause you inconvenience, it’s likely to upset you too. It’s important to someone to win a contest you aren’t bothered about and have no interest in. Because of this it might be easier to let them have their own way. At least this way you can keep things sweet between you.
Scorpio (Oct24/Nov22) You’re ready now to listen to the thoughts and opinions of someone you’ve recently been ignoring. This isn’t going against the grain; you just want to get ahead and compromise is the only way to move forward. Time spent trying to keep on another person’s good side should be your guarantee that projects will go well in the future. In romance, let your feelings show and this will enhance a relationship which has been getting tense.
Sagittarius (Nov23/Dec21) Your thoughtful and considerate mood prevents you from steamrollering your way through the day’s events. Being more cautious also gives you a better chance to learn more about the people around you. You might notice a side to someone you’d previously not appreciated and you need to think more about this. Your partner wants to know what you are feeling, thinking and planning to do in the near future.
Capricorn (Dec22/Jan20) Keep a close eye on your personal finances; you may have overlooked something in the small print of a recent transaction. Problems will arrive on your doorstep if you carelessly ignore the need to be more vigilant today. Any difficulties you do encounter should be reasonably easy to resolve if you accept the help and advice of someone who’s more experienced. In the evening, a text message or phone call from a friend could cause quite a stir.
Aquarius (Jan21/Feb19) Hovering in the background will give you a valuable perspective on current relationship differences. It’s never too late to correct past mistakes. If you realise you’ve not been fair on someone, admit it now and apologise. By changing your approach towards a stubborn friend or relative, your relationship could take on dimensions you never imagined. It’s time to let others in on your feelings.
Pisces (Feb20/Mar20) Hopes and wishes can and will come true if you really believe in them. Many things are changing in your life now. This will bring a degree of excitement mixed with some nervousness too. You can sometimes be resistant to change; ignore such doubts or at least push them into the back of your mind. These days you should be open and ready to accept anything interesting and new.

Aries (Mar21/Apr20) Get drawn into problems that aren’t your concern and before you know it, they will become your business! Trying to help someone comes naturally to you but eventually your support will be taken for granted. They will start depending on you too much and this will become a major inconvenience. Offer words of advice by all means, but don’t do any more than that. Give yourself a good talking to if you’re about to step in and try to help resolve another person’s difficulties.
Taurus (Apr21/May21) It’s hard to admit your recent behaviour has been causing others to look at you with some bitterness or resentment. It could well be you were offered something someone else wanted, or you are about to achieve an award or receive an offer there has been some competition for. Whilst you understand why people feel the way they do, you also know they had as much chance as you and you have won this contest fairly and squarely.
Gemini (May22/June21) Some areas of life will make significant progress; others remain at a standstill. No matter how you try to get them moving, you seem to come up against a brick wall. You’re determined to focus on your future and you will refuse to allow other people’s negative attitude deter you. There is no excuse for not realising your dreams. You are intent on succeeding and your positive thinking will help you find a way around today’s hurdles.
Cancer (June22/July23) A business or personal partnership lacks the sparkle or usefulness it once had. The encouraging comments of a friend or relative will give you the confidence to instigate changes. Despite your apprehension, you know you are making decisions with your own and other people’s best interests at heart. Moving away from old commitments will bring you opportunities to help you rediscover talents and assets you’ve not used in some time.
Leo (July24/Aug23) Confusing concerns over a joint money matter won’t be easy to resolve. A lack of communication seems to have left you in the dark about things which are going to affect your future plans. Once everything has been clarified and explained, you will feel more able to make decisions. There won’t be as much to worry about as you had thought. A friend makes an interesting proposal. Whether it relates to business or pleasure, it could be far too good to turn down.
Virgo (Aug24/Sept23) You’ve made too many resolutions at the start of the year and this will make it many times harder to keep them. In your enthusiasm, you have set goals that aren’t as reachable as you first thought and now you’re taking a more practical view to your long term aims. Revising these and deciding on the most important ones is the first step towards you making progress in the future. Then it’s all a matter of getting into a routine and sticking at it.
Libra (Sept24/Oct23) Discussions which start off light hearted could develop into something more frenzied and heated. You might wonder how the atmosphere turned so hostile so quickly and there is someone in particular who seems to be enjoying the conflict. At least you realise nothing will be resolved in this way and your calm intervention will help get things back onto a more civilised level. By this evening you will feel emotionally exhausted.
Scorpio (Oct24/Nov22) Curiosity could cause hassles; start digging into the past and you never know what you might dig up. Even if you’re intrigued and want to know the truth about an incident that’s preying on your mind, bringing it up in conversation could cause someone a lot of stress. The key to keeping relationships harmonious is to consider other people’s feelings and to encourage loved ones to start moving forward towards shared short term goals.
Sagittarius (Nov23/Dec21) Keep a mental note of all you have to do today and over the days ahead. Better still write a list and tick items off as you do them. Don’t blame yourself if you can’t find the time to fit in everything. While hard work comes naturally to you, it’s impossible to do the work of two and it’s what people seem to be expecting of you now. If you aren’t able to delegate, prioritise. It might feel as if a boss or someone in authority is deliberately trying to hold you back.
Capricorn (Dec22/Jan20) You’re trying to prove something to someone but is this leading you into taking on far too much? In your enthusiasm to establish yourself in your career or to prove you are worthy of a promotion, you might volunteer to do jobs other people could and should by rights be doing. Too much responsibility will mean you aren’t able to give proper attention to important tasks so why not look for a way to reduce those commitments?
Aquarius (Jan21/Feb19) You are open to new thoughts and ideas regarding almost anything now. Where your own ambitions are concerned, you’ve always been precise about your aims. You know exactly what you want and how to go about achieving it. Even so, you are alert to everything else going on around you and if someone is doing anything underhand, you will be the first to notice. Plan something different if you’re hoping for a twosome evening.
Pisces (Feb20/Mar20) Something special is achieved today but you won’t gloat over your good luck. You are acutely aware of another person’s disappointment or the fact a friend or associate has a lot to worry about. You might wish you could do more for others but sometimes you have to leave them to sort out their own problems and this is one of those times. A few words to let them know you care is enough. You should be focusing on your own concerns today.

Aries (Mar21/Apr20) Another person’s indecisive nature could be holding a job up; think twice before taking things into your own hands. You’re tempted to make their decisions for them but this may not go down well in a group you are involved in. Others might accuse you of being too controlling. Matters in the home that cause rows and ructions could all be down to a simple question of personal taste so you must accept there will be no choice but to reach a compromise.
Taurus (Apr21/May21) You get the impression a friend is exaggerating their problems but you also understand why. It may well be they’ve been lonely, ill or feeling a little left out of late and this is their way of getting the attention they crave. Even if you feel irritated with their behaviour, do you really want to run the risk of dismissing them when they need help and emotional support? Show you really do care. With hindsight you could be very glad you did.
Gemini (May22/June21) Confused money arrangements are likely to lead to an on going problem unless you do something about it now. The solution will not be as straightforward as you were hoping and you may have to put more time and research into the matter before it can be resolved. Other arrangements causing confusion are some joint travel or holiday plans. Someone has a lot to say about these but they seem unwilling to make any firm commitment.
Cancer (June22/July23) The answer you are trying to find to a question does not exist and this is why you’re struggling so much. You’re searching for clarification of an emotional or business matter but there are too many variables for anyone to ever be able to pinpoint the actual source of the problem. Mistakes have been made; there is no doubt about that. Instead of looking for someone or something to blame, you should all be concentrating on the solution.
Leo (July24/Aug23) Aspects of your working life aren’t pleasing you; you may have been taken off your usual job to help with something else. Normally this wouldn’t bother you as you like the odd change or two but it is entirely possible you feel you’re being lumbered with chores no-one else wants to do. Rather than complaining, try to get on with what’s being expected of you. This will create a good impression on your boss as it proves how accommodating you can be.
Virgo (Aug24/Sept23) Come up with a specific plan if you’re thinking about going on a diet or starting a new exercise regime. If you haven’t time to fit anything specific into your days, park the car further away from your destination, walk up the stairs instead of taking the lift and think about ways to eat more healthily too. Someone close does not seem to be sharing the same wavelength today, especially where money is concerned.
Libra (Sept24/Oct23) You aren’t responsible for other people’s happiness; don’t start believing you are. If you don’t honestly think you can make someone else happy after much effort to do so, isn’t it time to give up on this relationship? Your attempts to please someone do you credit but you aren’t having much fun in the process. Start thinking about your own needs and start planning ways to make your life and your relationships less difficult and more exciting.
Scorpio (Oct24/Nov22) A calm and cautiously optimistic approach towards your main goals is what’s needed now. You might even find it helpful to apply such approach to other areas of your life as well. Making light of any problems you have to face and always thinking in a positive manner will improve your relationships and bring personal contentment. Keeping romance light hearted will help a new healthy bond develop between you.
Sagittarius (Nov23/Dec21) You may have to put an end to some long term affairs in order to start something new. This might sound a little radical. You would love to continue with old commitments while taking on new ones but there will come a time when all this gets too much for you. You’re far better off bringing an end to matters that have run on far too long anyway. This keeps your life neat and makes it easier to make progress in the future.
Capricorn (Dec22/Jan20) Don’t be shy about expressing your appreciation of someone’s kind gestures; you see them in a whole new light. You’re discovering all sorts of things about your friends and loved ones because people are more willing to open up to you now. With lines of communication so open, this is a good time too, to let others in on your deepest feelings. Get ready to spend the next few weeks getting to know people better.
Aquarius (Jan21/Feb19) The qualities you put into your work and other activities come so easily to you today because they are natural. You aren’t going out of your way to impress other people even if they are watching you through admiring eyes. Your standard of work is enough to get into a superior’s good books. If you continue as you are now, you may be made an offer that will lead to a bright and more hopeful future.
Pisces (Feb20/Mar20) If you have a choice between doing your own thing or pleasing someone else, you will probably choose the latter. You might be worried a friend or loved one will get the wrong impression if you ignore their needs, despite the fact you did have plans of your own. Seeing them happy will dissolve all your anxieties. Getting sidetracked from your original plans to help out with something else won’t seem to matter when this gives you so much satisfaction too.

Aries (Mar21/Apr20) You have nothing to lose by listening carefully to what your boss or a senior colleague has to say. You don’t have to agree with them but if you look as if you’re interested and paying attention, you will gain their respect. Someone who has more experience could provide some useful tips and ideas to get a job you’re working on moving. A community venture doesn’t seem to be having as much success but it might be worthwhile sticking with it for a wee while longer.
Taurus (Apr21/May21) You might watch in awe as a friend or loved one’s current policy of pursuing high goals and objectives starts to pay off. There may be some regret that you gave in to caution and held back in the past, now you see what might have been achieved, had you made a different decision. Even so, you were right in making the choice you did for the time for there’s no guarantee anyway would have shared the same sort of success.
Gemini (May22/June21) Resist the urge to return an unwanted gift to the store it was bought from or to return an item you damaged. It’s never a good idea to try underhanded methods and these could lead to some embarrassment. Tell yourself it’s the thought and not the gift that counts, keep it for a reasonable length of time then donate it to charity. If you’re working or you have an important appointment, even if someone else keeps you waiting, make a point of being punctual and polite yourself.
Cancer (June22/July23) Is a partner doing their fair share within joint commitments or is it you who has been shirking responsibilities lately? Whichever it is now is the time to take stock of your relationships. Are they how they should be or could improvements be made? It’s not just you but your partner you should be directing these questions to. The answers could lead you to make an extra bit of effort to bring greater harmony and happiness into your world.
Leo (July24/Aug23) Just because you’ve had words with your partner, doesn’t mean you have to separate. You could be overreacting and imagining a small misunderstanding is going to ruin all the plans you’ve been making for the future. Your best plan of action is to apologise even if this means giving in and letting your significant other, have their own way. The dint in your pride is worth it if it helps get things between you back to normal.
Virgo (Aug24/Sept23) It will be both rewarding and necessary to pay attention to close friends and work associates. You might help someone avoid making a big mistake if you keep a close eye on what they’re up to. At first they will resent your interference but when they realise you do know what you’re talking about and you’re about to save them a lot of bother they will soon change their tune. The more positive and direct you are in your relationships, the better the outcome will be.
Libra (Sept24/Oct23) Psychological undercurrents make it hard for you to pick up on other people’s true thoughts and feelings. You might think you know what’s going on in their mind but you could be wrong. The best way to avoid misunderstandings is to ask detailed questions in a tactful way so it doesn’t look as if you are prying. Another person’s secretiveness could generate one or two problems in relationships but you will find a way to get them to talk.
Scorpio (Oct24/Nov22) If you’re making plans for the future, you could be put in a position where you must make immediate choices. Don’t take the most risky ones because you feel this is what other people are expecting. Impulsive decisions could cause more problems than enough in time to come. Instead make a quick check of all that needs to be weighed up and make a sensible choice without feeling too flustered.
Sagittarius (Nov23/Dec21) A spin off from your bright and philosophical way of accepting things will be an awesome offer or opportunity. You won’t mind taking on new responsibilities even when these are likely to be harder than anything else you’ve ever done. Your past achievements give you the confidence to give something new and exciting a go. You can only do your best so what have you got to lose?
Capricorn (Dec22/Jan20) If you’re disappointed things aren’t going too well, the fastest way to feel better is to amend your thinking. You’re spending too long looking on the dark side and have forgotten some recent very positive happenings in your life. Refuse to dwell on past hurts and unwarranted fears. They are stopping you from finding true happiness. In romance, it isn’t necessary to bring up painful issues from the past. No-one needs reminding of these. It’s time to move forward now.
Aquarius (Jan21/Feb19) Trying to rush people or projects will not quicken the process; in fact your impatience could slow others down. If you’re working alongside someone who is fixed and stubborn in their ways, they will become even more so if you try to get them to speed up. If you’re responsible for making joint arrangements, choose people you get on with for the next part of the task. Ideas you’re currently working on could affect more people than you had first thought.
Pisces (Feb20/Mar20) You might wish you had more time to spend on activities you love and enjoy. Is there no way you can reduce your everyday commitments? You could get started on a new personal project or artistic endeavour but you must be willing to make room in your life for new ventures. Once you’ve decided what to do, make sure everyone knows your objectives. Discussing them out loud makes them feel more real and attainable.

Aries (Mar21/Apr20) You know your way is best and your decisions are the right ones; now you need to persuade others of this too! Confidence and vitality carries you on the crest of a successful business and social wave. People are impressed by your accomplishments and feel inspired by your determination. Your powers of leadership are heightened now and this will be maintained into the evening when you will be playing a principal role in a group endeavour.
Taurus (Apr21/May21) These days you’ve been too rigid in your thinking without even realising it. This has been clouding your vision and preventing you from seeing the whole picture. Taking an objective view of life can be refreshing especially if you’re applying this to your personal situation. An imaginative friend will help you see things from a different perspective. Viewing life in new ways could help you resolve a problem or issue someone has recently thrown at you.
Gemini (May22/June21) Not everything is as it seems; there’s a peculiar feel to your relationships or your current dealings. Some people aren’t being honest with you or they’re lying through omission. Your intuition has been triggered by a number of factors which don’t seem quite right today. Not everyone is out to deceive you even though it might sometimes feel that way. For instance, a close friend isn’t trying to mislead you if they are telling you the truth as they see it.
Cancer (June22/July23) A recent dream or memories that keep resurfacing beckon you to revisit places you loved, as a child. If there’s a chance you will feel disappointed by how things have changed and not necessarily for the better, you should definitely not act on this inclination. Sometimes it is better to treasure the memories you do have without having them tainted with what’s in the present. The risk you take by trying to take a trip down memory lane is: they may never be the same to you again.
Leo (July24/Aug23) It might become apparent someone has been feeling neglected; you will feel their accusations are unjustified. If you’ve been going out of your way to please a loved one, understandably you wonder just what it might take to make them happy! Either continue to give this person plenty of attention so they have no further cause for complaint. Or ignore them altogether and actually do what they’re accusing you of, if only to make a point!
Virgo (Aug24/Sept23) If someone disagrees with something you’re going to do, there’s not much you can do about it. You have made your mind up and it doesn’t matter what this person is to you: your boss, a partner, a close friend or lover, they won’t be able to say anything to make you change it. You feel strangely restless and curious and you want to get more out of your life. For this reason, it’s important to act on your decision today.
Libra (Sept24/Oct23) Starting a new exercise routine is likely to be physically and mentally draining at first. You might wonder if it’s worth it when there are few, if any, immediate results. One way of coping is to find ways to reward yourself when you reach your short term targets. Choose something relaxing and enjoyable like a massage, hot tub or the occasional satisfying, healthy meal. To feel good about yourself, your efforts need this kind of positive reinforcement.
Scorpio (Oct24/Nov22) Make yourself available for conversations this morning; you could be surprised by what you hear. It might be frustrating when someone butts in to say their piece just as you wanted to hear another person’s views. Try to steer them back to the original topic. You know how your partner or someone else feels but you’d like to hear it from other people too. That way you get a wider view of the matter in question.
Sagittarius (Nov23/Dec21) An out of the blue offer or request might challenge you to revise, redefine or question certain beliefs and convictions. A part of you wants to take up a challenge that puts you in a situation which goes against your religious or cultural beliefs. The decision must be yours and yours alone. There may be a way to do this without causing too much internal strife. Take time to set your intention with purpose and clarity. This will help you stay on course while enjoying a variety of experiences.
Capricorn (Dec22/Jan20) There has never been a better time to commit emotionally to something or someone who means a great deal to you. No longer will you be ignoring the fact that a person has deep feelings for you; in fact you are starting to like and appreciate the warm glow this gives you inside. You aren’t as defensive or distant when you’re with them. Because they see the change in you, they’re more open with you too. Your world takes on a rosy, cosy hue.
Aquarius (Jan21/Feb19) Keep yourself occupied if there’s something on your mind you don’t want to think about. Worrying will only make the matter worse and it’s unlikely to solve anything. Stay busy with healthy activities you enjoy and aim to keep moving. If you aren’t working, try a new workout, get outdoors, take a walk or visit friends. Volunteer to help someone who’s looking harassed and this will give you less chance to just sit around moping, wondering and worrying!
Pisces (Feb20/Mar20) Joint plans remind you of some of the interests which captured your imagination as a child. Visiting the theatre, museum, a day’s outing or a concert will fuel your creativity. At work, combining your talents with another will help you easily meet your targets and deadlines. If you’re single, giving in to someone’s flirtatious overtures is the best thing you’ve done in a long while. Listen to your heart, not your head.

Aries (Mar21/Apr20) Someone close seems to have great difficulty agreeing with you even if you aren’t being unreasonable. If conflict between you is becoming increasingly common, you might wonder whether you’re really satisfied with your relationship, the way it is. The fact such questions are in your mind suggest some changes may be in order. This is probably what’s needed to get thing working in your favour again.
Taurus (Apr21/May21) If you want 2009 to be a better year than 2008, it is time you began to do something different. You’re in danger of falling back into the same old ruts you were in at the end of last year unless you make a determined effort to break out of them. If you’re hoping things will change, you have to do something about it. It is no good wishing, hoping and wanting while going about your life in the same old way. This of course will give you the same results you’ve always had.
Gemini (May22/June21) On the whole, expect today to be a fairly quiet day; this gives you the chance to tie up loose ends if you’re so inclined. You might also feel tempted to go on at a housemate who never seems to finish anything they start. By making a determined effort to clear the decks, you are drawing attention to their lack of perseverance and if all goes according to plan, they will start feeling guilty and will change their ways!
Cancer (June22/July23) You’re ready to forgive someone who did you wrong even though you won’t ever forget it. It hasn’t escaped your notice this person is truly sorry for the mistakes they’ve made and you can’t hold it against them any longer. This simple act of kindness will make a big difference to your relationship and it will feel as if a cloud has been lifted. You could receive a special gift from a loved one for no reason at all.
Leo (July24/Aug23) You could use a change of scenery or a change of routine. Even though you don’t mind set patterns and routines, they can sometimes get monotonous and today you could be acting on an impulse. If this means getting out and about more in your local neighbourhood, so much the better. There’s likely to be plenty going on you will find of interest so give in to any restlessness and encourage friends to do the same.
Virgo (Aug24/Sept23) Grasp the chance to try something new before it goes to someone else. It’s not as if you would ever run off and do something impulsively with no thought of your other commitments. There will be time to tie up loose ends, attend to routine responsibilities and make other arrangements. Studying New Age subjects helps you tap into and use Universal symbols to learn more about yourself.
Libra (Sept24/Oct23) All because you’re willing to push yourself just a small degree further than usual, you are starting to see pleasing progress. In both career and financial areas, you won’t be disappointed with what you achieve. Other people’s objections or protests have caused you to recently doubt your own decisions. All of a sudden you are starting to realise your life is your own and it is you who must make the main choices which affect your future.
Scorpio (Oct24/Nov22) You won’t take too kindly to someone’s take it or leave it attitude, neither will you respect a lazy colleague. Those who cannot negotiate or cooperate aren’t people you will want to work with regularly in the future. Work mates who prefer to leave others to do the work should not be allowed to enjoy any bonuses or perks of the job they’ve not earned themselves. You will be taking a serious view to other people’s selfish ways, today. In fact, you just won’t tolerate it!
Sagittarius (Nov23/Dec21) More things need to be taken into consideration before you can start looking ahead with anticipation. There is too much that might still go wrong for you to drop your guard and become overly confident. If you have your heart set on something special, take it slowly and carefully. It won’t be long before all obstructions start to clear and only then will you breathe out a sigh of relief and start feeling cautiously optimistic.
Capricorn (Dec22/Jan20) Be clear about your goals and if you don’t have any, this will be reflected in your actions and behaviour. You’ve always needed to have everything planned and organised but perhaps you’ve not had much time to decide on your future lately. If you didn’t make any earlier, think about making some resolutions now to give you something specific to work towards.
Aquarius (Jan21/Feb19) Someone close has shown an excess of care for you lately and you’ve not been unappreciative. Some remarkable mental rapport helps you forge ahead with joint arrangements of a private nature. Watch a loved one closely. It could be they’ve been devoting too much time to duty and not enough to pleasure. If they’re looking frayed around the edges, try to introduce a lighter note to your evening’s plans.
Pisces (Feb20/Mar20) You’re thinking of goals that are both achievable in the short term and some more lofty ones too. Others won’t understand your need to consider aims that take you several years down the road. You’re well aware you must start small and take it one step at a time but there is something you are determined to achieve and you can start by making a firm promise with yourself that one way or another you are going to do it.

Aries (Mar21/Apr20) If you are persistent and develop the foresight to keep looking forward to the time you achieve your aims, you will be successful. You’ve always had a habit of growing impatient and when this mood gets the better of you, you will end up quitting. If obstacles get in your way, have the courage to keep working towards your goals. Take the attitude you will not give up because you know what your intentions are and you won’t be happy until you achieve them.
Taurus (Apr21/May21) You might use your sense of humour to turn a tense situation into a more relaxed one. People find your company calming and comforting and they will look to you to help keep harmony in a team effort. Start using your innate skills to get others to work in unison and you will see the difference this makes. An invitation to join a pressure group concerned with green issues might be a one you feel you can’t turn down.
Gemini (May22/June21) Don’t waste too much time or energy trying to stick to original plans if they aren’t working out. It’s difficult to get on with arrangements when people or circumstances seem to be working against you. Instead, think about getting out of the house for a change of scene of any description will help refresh and revitalise you. It won’t be difficult either, to persuade a close friend or loved one to drop what they’re doing, to keep you company.
Cancer (June22/July23) You feel nervous and all keyed up about arrangements you have made for today. This might be an interview or a meeting where you will be playing a significant part. Your health will suffer if you get yourself in too much of a state and all because of nerves. Take some deep breaths. Focus on your strengths and don’t think so negatively. Because events today won’t be half as bad as your mind is making them out to be.
Leo (July24/Aug23) Your restless mood makes you totally unpredictable; some people don’t know how to take you. One moment you want to have fun, the next you remember work you have to do. There will be times when you can’t get enough of the company of friends around you, then suddenly you want to be on your own. You need to be tactful throughout the day or you might say something in an emotionally charged moment and it won’t be easy to take back.
Virgo (Aug24/Sept23) You’ve not yet had a chance to take in everything going on, especially on a social level. A swift check of a pile of correspondence which has been steadily growing since the start of the year might turn up a few invitations you’d almost overlooked. Some of these will be worth accepting if it’s not too late. A few phone calls or emails will give you a number of exciting events to look forward to and also an excuse to splash out on a new outfit!
Libra (Sept24/Oct23) Self improvement is your aim over the months ahead; it’s hard to stick with a goal as big and as vague as this. You will have better success if you know exactly what it is you intend to work on. You might for instance want to improve your health through losing weight and eating more healthily. Or it could be your spiritual development you intend to work on. Make a specific decision on how you will go about this and you will do well.
Scorpio (Oct24/Nov22) You weren’t expecting the offer put to you today and your surprise shows. Other people are both amused and delighted by your amazed response. For what is apparent is you have been working hard and this has not gone unnoticed. You deserve to be rewarded so stop worrying about how you might be letting someone down by taking up an offer at short notice. Just think of all the benefits about to come your way because of this.
Sagittarius (Nov23/Dec21) Once other people have had the chance to get used to new ideas and proposals, they will go along with them. This may mean changing some plans in rather a hurry but no-one seems to mind. You’re all for visiting places you don’t often go to and meeting people you rarely get to see. You could also be in touch with an important figure in your community. An agreement or suggestion they make could take you by surprise.
Capricorn (Dec22/Jan20) Your gentle supervision and careful guidance helps someone you care for become more focussed and channelled. Whereas in the past they’ve always been impulsive and thoughtless you will be directing them to be more focused now. Expect emotional relationships to become more important in your life and efforts to put these onto a more stable footing will pay off and bring greater happiness your way.
Aquarius (Jan21/Feb19) If you aren’t careful, private arrangements with a partner could cost you a lot of money. If you can afford this, it won’t be such a problem. If you can’t, hold back and discuss plans more thoroughly. The person you care for will understand and be happy to settle for something less costly. An issue later in the day is easily resolved because you are open to help and advice and a different point of view actually holds the answer.
Pisces (Feb20/Mar20) Proceed with caution if you don’t want to cause irreparable damage to a close relationship. You could well get to achieve something you’ve always wanted but in so doing, have you considered the likely cost to your loved ones? Changes that suit you may cause them a lot of secret worry and uncertainty. Try to tune into their feelings before making plans of a long term nature. It may call for some skilled negotiation to get an elderly relative to support you.
