IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY:
Family and financial matters are under dynamic stars on your birthday, so if you want to make changes now is the time. Don't just react to events as they happen – reach out and change the world to the way you want it to be.
ARIES (March 21 – April 20):
You have so much energy at your disposal as the new year begins that you are sure to do something memorable. Bear in mind though that people in positions of power and authority will be watching you closely.
TAURUS (April 21 – May 21):
You will be much more like your old self today: full of confidence and self-belief. One area where you will be looking to prove yourself is in your career. You know you can and should be doing better.
GEMINI (May 22 – June 21):
You may not want to tell someone that you are really not that interested in their plans but if you don't they will bore you with details. Start the year the way you mean to go on: refuse to suffer fools gladly.
CANCER (June 22 – July 23):
You alone control your destiny, so don't let others tell you that you can only get ahead by joining with them in their group or crusade or ideology. Cherish your independence – it's the most important thing you possess.
LEO (July 24 – Aug. 23):
While everyone else is slacking off and slowing down you will be pushing yourself that little bit harder today. You are determined to get ahead of your rivals and that means starting earlier and finishing later.
VIRGO (Aug. 24 – Sept. 23):
Although changes in your domestic sphere may not be what you were expecting, in the long-term they will turn out to be exactly what you need, so go with the flow and don't kick up a fuss. Why worry?
LIBRA (Sept. 24 – Oct. 23):
Libra is a cardinal sign and competitive by nature and a powerful Mars-Uranus link on the first day of the year means you are in the mood to get ahead and stay ahead. Make sure you're the first to act today.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24 – Nov. 22):
Whatever other people may say about your current situation, if your intuition tells you a different story you must trust it. Deep down you already know the answers – all you have to do is listen carefully.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 – Dec. 21):
There is a time for everything and the first day of the new year is the perfect time to begin something new and exciting. Don't be afraid to stand in the spotlight and showcase your many talents.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 – Jan. 20):
You have to decide what means more to you: privacy or success. The simple fact is the more you have of one the less you will have of the other, so give it some thought and then act accordingly.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 – Feb. 19):
Any obstacles you encounter today should be treated as interesting challenges rather than as things to be avoided. You may dream of an easy life but chances are you would not enjoy it. You need to be tested.
PISCES (Feb. 20 – Mar. 20):
Mars and Uranus combine today to remind you that upheavals and unexpected events are necessary for personal growth. The only thing in life that is constant is change, so be ready and willing to move in a new direction.
