IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY

Life is not a zero-sum game – other people don't have to lose just so you can win. Once you get your head around that fact you will find it much easier to work with others rather than against them. When one wins, we all win.

ARIES (March 21 – April 20):

Your intuition seems to be operating on a higher level at the moment and the more you have held yourself back from imagining what tomorrow might bring the more you will now want to look to the future. What you see will inspire you.

TAURUS (April 21 – May 21):

A breakthrough of some sort is likely today. Something that seemed such a problem a short while ago actually has a very simple solution and if you have a questioning mind, and keep your eyes and ears open, you will discover what it is.

GEMINI (May 22 – June 21):

A relationship is at crisis point – or is it? According to the planets you are reading far too much into what a loved one has been saying and doing. And if they have been doing the same to you, well, no wonder you don't understand one another!

CANCER (June 22 – July 23):

You must give both your mind and your body time to recharge today and over the weekend. You really don't have to work twice as hard as everyone else to get ahead. Someone with your intelligence should have people working for you.

LEO (July 24 – Aug. 23):

Hold the image of what you desire firmly in your head and before you know what's going on it will manifest itself in your life. That may sound too easy to be true but your mind is a powerful tool, so try using it more often!

VIRGO (Aug. 24 – Sept. 23):

It's time to get rid of all those old and outdated ideas that you have been carrying around like so much unwanted baggage. The world keeps on turning and changing and you must keep on changing too. Move with the times, today and every day.

LIBRA (Sept. 24 – Oct. 23):

Take care not to say anything hurtful when dealing with people who are not as thick-skinned as you. It may be nothing more than a joke or a throwaway line to you but to them it will seem like needless criticism. Build up, don't knock down.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24 – Nov. 22):

The more someone tries to convince you that they can be trusted the more determined you must be to have nothing to do with them. Scorpios can be many things but gullible isn't one of them and you know a scam when you see one.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 – Dec. 21):

By all means express yourself loudly and forcefully today. Yes, of course, some people will say you don't have to shout to be heard but recent events suggest that they have not been listening, so by all means get up close and yell.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 – Jan. 20):

You may be reluctant to come down hard on a friend or colleague who has misled you in some way but if you don't it may encourage them to give you inaccurate information again in the future. Get tough today so tomorrow won't hurt you.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 – Feb. 19):

As so often happens you are completely out of step with those around you at the moment – but so what? There is no law that says you have got to think and act as other people do. On the contrary, it's your cosmic destiny to be different.

PISCES (Feb. 20 – Mar. 20):

Don't take it to heart if a work colleague or someone in a position of power criticizes you today. They are not being negative for the sake of it, so listen to what they have to tell you. Chances are they are doing you a very big favour.
