IF YOUR BIRTHDAY IS TODAY
Everything you do over the coming 12 months must have a serious purpose. Retrograde Mercury linked to Saturn on your birthday means you have been singled out to take on great responsibilities. Yes, it's a burden, but it's also an honour.
ARIES (March 21 - April 20):
Appearances can be deceptive, so don't make a snap judgment about someone you meet for the first time today or you may have to make an embarrassing U-turn later on in the week. Focus only on their good points.
TAURUS (April 21 - May 21):
You may be tempted to do something you know won't meet with general approval today. It may be a big laugh for you, but make sure you know what the consequences might be. Not everyone shares your sense of humour.
GEMINI (May 22 - June 21):
Relationships should take a turn for the better over the next few days. Not that they have been bad as such, but there have been times of late when you wondered if your nearest and dearest still cared. Of course they do.
CANCER (June 22 - July 23):
You can, if you wish, pretend that you don't care about someone, but the planets will betray you. As a Cancerian, you find it hard to keep your feelings under wraps, but that's good. Be open and honest about who you are.
LEO (July 24 - Aug. 23):
Memories can be fun, but they can also stop you moving on and that would be a shame as the planets suggest you have so much to look forward to. It's time to stop living in the past. Look to the future.
VIRGO (Aug. 24 - Sept. 23):
You may want to believe that you can handle a difficult situation on your own, but you can't, so push your pride to one side and get some assistance. Bring issues into the open where they can be dealt with.
LIBRA (Sept. 24 - Oct. 23):
Don't give up on an idea or belief just because the so-called experts say you've got it wrong. More likely you are spot on in your assessment and it's they who don't know what they are talking about. Trust your instincts.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24 - Nov. 22):
It seems the planets are trying to tell you something, but you are determined not to listen. You can be as stubborn as you like, but the fact is the evidence is there and it cannot be ignored forever. Wise up.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 - Dec. 21):
Focus on having fun and don't fret if family, friends and work colleagues keep telling you there are a thousand and one serious things you should be doing. Nothing in life is more important than feeling good about your existence.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 - Jan. 20):
Someone you trust will make a suggestion today and while it's clearly a good one you most likely won't want to know. Mercury, planet of the mind, warns you must listen – and act. If not, the consequences could be dire.
What you have to do today may not be much fun, but you will do it anyway and you will make a good job of it. Treat it as a game, as a bit of a laugh – and maybe, just maybe, that's what it will be.
PISCES (Feb. 20 - Mar. 20):
You need to get back in the good books of your employer or someone else in a position of power, but it won't be easy. You've got to be smart about it. Steer clear of flattery – they'll know you don't really mean it.
