IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY:
What is it that inspires you the most? What do you intend to do about it? If you are going to make the most of the next 12 months, you need to have a clear picture of your desired goal. Once you have it, there will be no stopping you.
ARIES (March 21 – April 20):
You will find it difficult to disguise your feelings today, but why would you want to? No matter how hard you try to keep your opinions to yourself, something will slip out. Let's just hope it's something good.
TAURUS (April 21 – May 21):
No matter how carefully you try to explain something to a friend or colleague, they just don't seem to get it. Are they stupid or are they stubborn? Whatever the answer don't waste too much time on them.
GEMINI (May 22 – June 21):
Don't commit yourself too easily, especially if certain people try to push you into making a quick decision. In fact, the more they talk up a project, the more suspicious you should be. Make sure you know all the facts.
CANCER (June 22 – July 23):
You would be wise to remember today that not everyone is as straightforward and honest as you – in fact, some people seem to be evasive by design. Trust only those who have a track record of being straight shooters.
LEO (July 24 – Aug. 23):
If you have a detailed plan of what you intend to do, everything will work out fine. If, however, you leave things to chance, your day will probably fall apart in a matter of minutes. So draw up that plan.
VIRGO (Aug. 24 – Sept. 23):
If you follow the rules over the next 24 hours, you won't go far wrong, but if you cut corners you could end up in serious trouble. Today's aspects suggest someone is in for a rude awakening. Don't let it be you.
LIBRA (Sept. 24 – Oct. 23):
Use your head when dealing with people in positions of power. You may be entitled to get angry with a certain individual, but don't forget they have the power to make things difficult for you. Don't provoke them.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24 – Nov. 22):
Spell out what you expect of other people in plain and simple language today, because if your instructions are vague, it's guaranteed they will get it wrong. Then they will be perfectly entitled to blame it on you.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 – Dec. 21):
You may have made up your mind about something, but if everyone else disagrees with you, it might be wise to think again. If you discover later on that you made a decision based on limited facts, it could prove costly.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 – Jan. 20):
You need to delegate more and you need to trust friends and colleagues to do a good job. Okay, so it won't be as good as if you had done it yourself, but not even a Capricorn can do it all. Get help.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 – Feb. 19):
Some things happen for a reason and some things, well, they just seem to happen. What takes place today will most likely fall in the latter category. Don't search too hard for an answer. Maybe there isn't one.
PISCES (Feb. 20 – Mar. 20):
Why worry about things that most likely will never happen? If you stop and consider what you are getting worked up about, you will realize it is of no importance at all. Why frown when you could be smiling?
