If you celebrate your birthday this week:
Your Year Ahead
This year others see you as being different - and you are. It seems like you’ve finally found the inspiration to make dreams come true. Your desire for freedom and new experiences is intense and urgent. You’re far more rebellious with a strong need to travel - or simply, escape the daily routine. Do it, if you can. It won’t be a lonely journey, as love beckons.
Aries (March 21 - April 20)
Aries’ tensions flare as power struggles promote either fight or flight. Anger can be explosive, but suppressing emotions isn’t healthy either. If you have a problem, aim for a positive outcome rather than just venting. Either clear the air, or take a very long walk.
Taurus (April 21 - May 20)
At times it’s difficult to know what’s really going on. Despite their best intentions, what others say may be misleading. In the same way, it’s you who could be misunderstood. This need not, however, lead to major problems. Being forewarned is being forearmed.
Gemini (May 21 to June 21)
The week ahead requires decisive handling as cosmic forces close the gates on unviable projects. Expect disappointments, arguments or financial setbacks. If necessary, just let go. You can’t argue with such a hearty dose of planetary common sense.
Cancer (June 22 - July 22)
Many put their thoughts to creating the future, while robbing the present moment. Allow yourself to have goals, but achieve them in the present. The future is your artwork - paint it with awareness. Let whatever happens unfold as you walk diligently forward in the here and now.
Leo (July 23 - August 23)
You’re bent on dipping your toes over that proverbial horizon - so don’t be surprised if you find yourself on a first-name basis with your travel agent. Current relationships climb to a new level of intensity. New romance looks to have a reassuringly long warranty.
Virgo (August 24 - September 22)
Despite your reputation for being detached, there are many secrets hidden beneath that cool exterior. This makes you a bit of a mystery, really. And perhaps you prefer it that way. After all, there’s no point in showing your entire hand, when one card at a time will do.
Libra (September 23 - October 23)
Your open and trusting attitude has just had a smack on the wrist. You’ve not been as careful as usual, and an abusive element has possibly just taken you for a ride. Sit quietly, and come to terms with a few home truths. For starters - not everyone is trustworthy.
Scorpio (October 24 - November 22)
You’re very chatty this week - so unlike you, Scorpio. Frenetic thoughts race around your mind and you can’t wait to share them with anyone that happens to be around. Just try not to monopolise the conversation. Others will feel resentful if they can’t get a word in.
Sagittarius (November 23 - December 21)
Feeling frazzled? Not surprising. Times have been tough, with money issues demanding more attention. Good news: stress finally starts to ease, to the point where you can relax. This is a healing cycle that occurs only a few times a year, so make it count.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 20)
A secret is exposed. While you may feel a tad indignant at having your psyche placed on such public display - avoid any temptation to retaliate. This is not a time to shoot whatever grace you have left in the foot. You will survive this little blunder.
Aquarius (January 21 - February 18)
You’ve an uncanny knack to hit the bypass switch on tension. Sure you suffer stress just like the rest of us, but a different kind of catalyst triggers your neuroses. So in a week when many suffer an anxiety overdose, most Aquarians safely negotiate rough terrain.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
Reality presents a cash flow crisis that threatens to send finances into a spin. While grand schemes give you something to aspire to - they can also break the bank. Fortunately, your more practical side should step in before dreams soar dangerously high.
