IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Don’t fret too much if you encountered challenges in various aspects over the past 12 months because you will more than compensate for it in the coming year. It wasn’t so much a setback as it was a reset. Now, you are prepared to confidently move forward again.
ARIES (March 21 – April 20): Your beliefs and opinions will be challenged by someone who thinks they know better than you, and, of course, you will vigorously defend them. For optimal results, take the initiative and highlight their own inconsistencies and inadequacies.
TAURUS (April 21 – May 21): You have substantial responsibilities to handle at the moment, and while you might prefer to set them aside for something more interesting, you understand that won’t be possible for quite a while. Duty calls, and Taurus must respond.
GEMINI (May 22 – June 21): If you are the type of Gemini who relishes a challenge, you will appreciate what unfolds today. Challenges will confront you at every turn, but admitting defeat is not in your vocabulary. Stand strong against the odds.
CANCER (June 22 – July 23): Trust your instincts today, even if it seems everyone is heading in a different direction. Sometimes, going against accepted wisdom pays off, and the planets suggest this is one of those times. Enjoy embracing your maverick spirit.
LEO (July 24 – Aug. 23): Be kind to everyone you encounter today, both personally and professionally. They might not reciprocate, but that’s irrelevant – what matters is that you’ve chosen to be a positive force.
VIRGO (Aug. 24 – Sept. 23): No more playing around or playing the amateur – it’s time to get serious about your long-term goals. Not everyone may approve, but not everyone can be as astute as you. Focus on your ambitions with determination.
LIBRA (Sept. 24 – Oct. 23): You might be tempted to speak your mind, but the planets caution against it, especially if you’re the type of Libra who finds it hard to stop talking once you start! Think before you speak, and if in doubt, keep silent.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24 – Nov. 22): Cosmic activity in your financial area may prompt you to tighten your belt a bit today, and that’s not a bad thing. Life’s recent generosity may have made you forget the value of limited resources. It’s time for a reminder.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 – Dec. 21): Today’s priority is not to assert authority over those lower down the professional ladder, as they possess information and contacts you’ll need. Seek their assistance instead of aiding your rivals.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 – Jan. 20): Pressure is building, but it won’t overcome you. As a cardinal sign, you don’t give up at the first sign of opposition – quite the opposite, you relish a challenge. There’s still plenty of fight left in you.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 – Feb. 19): Every suggestion you’ve made lately seems to face disapproval from those around you. It can be frustrating, but don’t let it get to you. If you can’t secure their agreement, consider pursuing your own path.
PISCES (Feb. 20 – Mar. 20): A significant drama is unfolding in your environment, and you’re adeptly avoiding getting personally entangled. Keep your wits about you today, and you could be one of the few to benefit from the situation.
