IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY
Somewhere along the way you have taken a wrong turning. Now you need to go back and find the right path. Don't be discouraged – it's not a mark of failure. Life is constantly changing and adjusting and you must change and adjust too.
ARIES (March 21 – April 20):
According to the planets someone is jealous of your success and is working behind the scenes to make you look bad. If you discover they are trying to turn important people against you then hit back hard. Don't let their slurs go unanswered.
TAURUS (April 21 – May 21):
Although as an earth sign you generally like to stay on top of your work and your responsibilities you do seem to have been letting things slide a bit of late. Don't leave to the very last minute what can be done immediately today, or any day.
GEMINI (May 22 – June 21):
You like to be open and honest about your ideas and your desires but with your ruler Mercury at odds with Jupiter, planet of exaggeration, today that might not be such a good idea. Just this once, keep your thoughts and feelings to yourself.
CANCER (June 22 – July 23):
A money matter may be causing you some concern but don't worry yourself sick about it. Almost certainly the situation looks worse than it is and by this time tomorrow you will realize there is in fact precious little to get worked up about.
LEO (July 24 – Aug. 23):
You cannot force people to think and act like you, so don't waste time trying. If you are heavy-handed in the way you interact with others today they will dig in their heels and refuse to co-operate, even in areas where you generally agree with each other.
VIRGO (Aug. 24 – Sept. 23):
Life may seem a bit subdued at the moment but that's no bad thing. The planets urge you to keep a low profile and steer clear of people who try to talk you into taking on extra commitments. You are doing more than enough already.
LIBRA (Sept. 24 – Oct. 23):
You should always be careful what you say but as communications planet Mercury is now at odds with Jupiter it is doubly important that you engage your brain before firing up your vocals chords. Say the wrong thing and the roof could fall in!
SCORPIO (Oct. 24 – Nov. 22):
Someone will go out of their way to make a drama out of a situation that is nowhere close to being a crisis. You can play along if you like, for the fun of it, but your time and energy would be much better spent on more important things.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 – Dec. 21):
Life is a lot of fun at the moment and nothing seems to faze you but don't get so caught up in day-to-day merriment that you fail to notice that big dark cloud that has appeared on the horizon. Start thinking about what challenges might lie ahead.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 – Jan. 20):
You have enjoyed your time in the spotlight in recent weeks but over the next few days you need to focus on less glamorous matters. Top of the agenda is to make sure your financial affairs are in good order. Chances are they could be better.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 – Feb. 19):
You will interact with someone today whose ideas are very different to your ideas and the potential for conflict is great. But if you make an effort to really listen to what they have to say you may discover they know things that you need to know too.
PISCES (Feb. 20 – Mar. 20):
Because you are being kept in the dark you may be tempted to latch on to all sorts of outrageous rumours, but if you do you will end up even further away from the truth. What happens over the next few days will enlighten you, so be patient.
