IF YOUR BIRTHDAY IS TODAY
Neptune, planet of imagination, is strong on your birthday this year, which means you are free to let your creative and artistic urges take centre stage. But Neptune also rules illusions, so make sure the goals you set yourself are realistic. Even Sags have limits.
ARIES (March 21 - April 20):
Make sure you are in a positive frame of mind over the next few days, otherwise you could miss a chance to make money. Smile, look confident and, when you get the chance, sweet-talk important people who can help you get what you want.
TAURUS (April 21 - May 21):
Don't try to second guess other people's motives and actions because you will most likely get it completely wrong. Be patient and wait for them to make the first move, then react in ways that are both balanced and beneficial to you.
GEMINI (May 22 - June 21):
You may think you know everything there is to know about a certain person, but you don't and what happens over the next few days will emphasize that fact, maybe quite harshly. Next time, don't be so quick to jump to conclusions.
CANCER (June 22 - July 23):
You know you need to up your game if you are to make a success of a long-term project. When dealing with rivals and competitors remember this: they are not nearly as confident as they look. Use that knowledge to your advantage.
LEO (July 24 - Aug. 23):
You may be having second thoughts about something, but don't change it just yet. With Neptune, planet of illusion, strong at the moment it's quite likely that whatever problems you have identified exist nowhere but in your own head.
VIRGO (Aug. 24 - Sept. 23):
What people say and what people mean will vary considerably over the coming week. Fortunately your sixth sense will tell you when others are lying and all you have to do is listen to and act on your instincts. What could go wrong?
LIBRA (Sept. 24 - Oct. 23):
You may find yourself at a loss to explain why certain events are happening, but there's no need to panic. Most likely you have taken too many things on trust and need to remind yourself that it's what you believe and what you do that matters.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24 - Nov. 22):
The more people criticize what you do the more you tend to do it – that's just the way you are. Watch out though that someone doesn't try to catch you out by saying you should do the opposite of what they really want from you!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 - Dec. 21):
The sun may be in your birth sign now, but Mercury, planet of the mind, remains in the most sensitive part of your chart, so don't worry if you find it hard to be your usual larger-than-life self. Even a Sag needs time to think things through.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 - Jan. 20):
You may be convinced that your way of doing things is best but how do you convince others? The only surefire way is to get on with your work and demonstrate that you are not all show and no go. Actions speak louder than words.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 - Feb. 19):
You will see or hear something you don't much like this week and wonder how some people can be so misguided, but stay calm. The world is a big place and full of all sorts of people. Not everyone could or should be like you.
PISCES (Feb. 20 - Mar. 20):
There are so many minor matters that need to be taken care of that you are beginning to lose sight of the bigger picture. At some stage this week you must stand back and remind yourself what all your efforts are for.
