IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY:
A Mars-Jupiter link on your birthday makes you believe that you need to make something of your life. It's a powerful combination, but it will benefit you most if you balance it with fun activities. It's not all about material success.
ARIES (March 21 – April 20):
Try not to say too much when talking to others about your long-term hopes and wishes. If too many people know what you are up to it makes it easier for your rivals to disrupt your plans.
TAURUS (April 21 – May 21):
Are you doing the right thing? The only way to be sure is to sit quietly and think through your plans. Let your inner voice come to the fore and guide you. It knows all the important answers.
GEMINI (May 22 – June 21):
You cannot please all of the people all of the time, so why even try? Monday's link from the Sun to Jupiter in your sign means it's okay to be selfish. It's not as if you are the only one.
CANCER (June 22 – July 23):
You may be tempted to push yourself harder than usual, but if you are smart you will keep the pace slow and steady and not worry about how soon you can reach your destination. There's no rush.
LEO (July 24 – Aug. 23):
The more others claim to be looking out for your interests the more you are right to mistrust them. They may not be trying to deliberately mislead you, but they are certainly not putting your needs first.
VIRGO (Aug. 24 – Sept. 23):
The more you try to control other people the more they will try to break away, so give loved ones and work colleagues more freedom. If you loosen your grip a little they will be less likely to stray.
LIBRA (Sept. 24 – Oct. 23):
The planets warn that if you adopt the attitude that nothing can possibly go wrong you increase the chances that something will go wrong. This is a good time for you, but don't take too much for granted.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24 – Nov. 22):
You are worrying so much about your financial situation that your negative thoughts are likely to influence events and make matters worse than they are. It's only money, so stop fretting and start smiling again.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 – Dec. 21):
With the Sun in your sign opposing Jupiter, your ruler, on Monday, there is a danger you will go to extremes. Whatever the provocation, breathe deeply and slowly count to 100. There's no need to get emotional.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 – Jan. 20):
You are determined to make major changes in your life, which is good, but don't make them so abruptly that you cause unnecessary upsets. Change one little thing each and every day – it will soon add up.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 – Feb. 19):
Some people may say you are aiming too high, and maybe they are right, but it's better than aiming too low. Be ambitious and be ready to take advantage of events that no one had predicted. Act first, think later.
PISCES (Feb. 20 – Mar. 20):
Try not to be too pushy this week. Colleagues and employers are more likely to see the merits in your arguments if you don't make it sound as if you are superior. You are, of course, but don't rub it in.
