IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY You will receive advice from just about everyone as to what direction your life should be taking. Ignore it all. Deep inside, you already know what you should be doing, so listen to your inner voice and follow its guidance, not just this year but every year.
ARIES (March 21 – April 20) The sun will cross the mid-heaven angle of your chart today, giving you the authority you have been lacking in recent weeks. Make the most of this change to win employers and other authority figures round to your way of thinking.
TAURUS (April 21 – May 21) This is a good time for affairs of the heart, and if you are in the market for love, you might just meet someone who floats your boat. However, the planets warn it won’t be all plain sailing, so be ready to brave a few storms.
GEMINI (May 22 – June 21) Mercury is moving into the area of your chart that governs wealth and investments, so you need to think clearly and seriously about your long-term financial prospects. At the very least, you should start saving for a rainy day.
CANCER (June 22 – July 23) It seems you have come in for a bit of criticism of late, and although not all of it was deserved, you have to admit some of it was. The question is: Have you learned from your mistakes? You should find out the answer this weekend.
LEO (July 24 – Aug. 23) The past few weeks have seen you at your most confident and dynamic, but now you need to pay a bit more attention to the little things – but only a bit. Don’t lose sight of the big picture but find ways to paint it on an everyday canvas.
VIRGO (Aug. 24 – Sept. 23) If you have confidence in your abilities, then there is nothing that can stop you from reaching your goals. As the celestial body moves into the most dynamic area of your chart this weekend, anything is possible for you. Yes, really – anything.
LIBRA (Sept. 24 – Oct. 23) It’s okay to be cautious when dealing with people you don’t know very well, but don’t let it get to a level where you distrust every word they say for no good reason. Most people, even strangers, are still honest in their dealings.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24 – Nov. 22) You are dwelling too much on the past when you should be thinking ahead. The good news is your attitude will take a turn for the better today. The even better news is the attitude of others toward you will be positive in every way.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 – Dec. 21) As Mercury prepares to leave your sign, the emphasis of your affairs will start changing, too, most noticeably in the way you deal with money. You may not have worried too much about cash flow before, but you certainly need to now.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 – Jan. 20) As Mercury prepares to move into your sign, so put the past behind you and start with a clean slate. What’s done is done and cannot be undone, so be positive in word and deed and aim to be the very best you can be right here and now.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 – Feb. 19) On one level, you will be the life and soul of the party this weekend, but on another, your focus will turn inward and you will start asking yourself the kind of questions that no amount of partying can answer. It’s time to get serious.
PISCES (Feb. 20 – Mar. 20) You need to take a more relaxed view of partnerships and friendships, both in your personal life and at work. Treat others as if they are allies and equals rather than rivals and enemies, and life will be fun and profitable in equal measure.
