IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY:
The coming year can be a time of real achievement, but first you must let go of the past. In practical terms that means accepting that certain goals are just not going to happen. A touch of realism will take you a long way.
ARIES (March 21 - April 20):
Don't expect too much in the way of cooperation from other people. Partners and colleagues will be too busy resolving their own issues to pay much attention to what you are up to. Which could work in your favor.
TAURUS (April 21 - May 21):
You don't have to do something just because someone in a position of authority tells you to do it. Ultimately you are your own boss and must do only what your conscience can live with. Make sure they know that.
GEMINI (May 22 - June 21):
You can be rather impulsive and if you act on the spur of the moment today there is a risk you will leave yourself open to accusations that you are putting not just yourself but others at risk. Maybe they're right.
CANCER (June 22 - July 23):
You may find that your options for action are limited over the next 24 hours but it's no big deal. Stay calm and don't get flustered or frustrated. There's still plenty of time to make your mark on the world.
LEO (July 24 - Aug. 23):
Others can sit around worrying about the end of the world but you don't have time for that kind of self-indulgence. Make your plans and then make your move. Others may fear the future but you intend to own it.
VIRGO (Aug. 24 - Sept. 23):
You need to be a bit more assertive today, especially if you want to show those you work with that you can handle responsibility. Above all you must look calm on the outside, even if you are scared on the inside.
LIBRA (Sept. 24 - Oct. 23):
"Lazy Libra" is a tag that has little if any truth in it and you will prove it today. Your willingness to put in twice as much effort as your colleagues will not go unnoticed nor, in the long-term, unrewarded.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24 - Nov. 22):
If you allow your anxieties to hold you back today you will regret it later in the week when you realize how much more you could have done if you had just stuck with it. The only thing to fear is fear itself.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 - Dec. 21):
You may be tempted to cut corners today but it's not a good idea. Almost certainly what you planned will go wrong and you will end up going the long way round for what should have been a simple journey.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 - Jan. 20):
It looks very much like you are on a collision course with someone who has been going out of their way to give you a hard time, and it could get messy. Don't say something that could cost you your job, though.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 - Feb. 19):
If you find that you are out of your depth in some way or other today, you must ask for help. It's not a sign of weakness, it's a sign of intelligence. Everyone has their limits but only the wise seem to know it.
PISCES (Feb. 20 - Mar. 20):
Timing is everything and according to the planets it's the right time to get involved in a project that involves people from all walks of life, and maybe from all over the world. Join with those who share your dream.
