CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Haley Joel Osment, Ryan Merriman, Mandy Moore, Chuck Connors, Omar Sharif, Clare Boothe Luce, Olivia Brown, Steven Seagal.
ARIES (March 21-April 19): You will feel the effects of your ruling planet when money issues take center stage today: there’s a danger that you could become a little too cash focused in your attempt to gain more. However it looks like you’ll get what you want; although there’s a risk you’ll upset a couple of people.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): It is likely that health matters will dominate your thoughts, but in a generally positive way, as long as you don’t get too obsessed. If you feel the need to shed a few pounds or even just tone up a little then start now: this will help your flagging confidence and low self esteem.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): It’s likely that the boredom and restlessness of yesterday will continue today, but it should ease up by lunchtime. Break up the routine of work or school by planning a trip to the mall to buy something glamorous, whether it’s an outfit or just stunning accessories.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): If you find that your romantic plans seem to go wrong and that you can’t seem to say anything right then don’t worry. A close friend or family will be around to talk you through whatever the problem is. One note of caution, though: you may have to eat a little humble pie later on.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Something at work or school will almost certainly distract you too much today. Turning your numerous talents to some creative outlet will almost definitely turn your mood around and help you get things back in perspective. Embarking on a joint venture with a friend will make it more fun too.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): For you romance and close relationships will be the focus today. You will need to be on the ball, rather than drifting off into daydreams. Fantasizing about your perfect partner may be nice, but you need to accept the reality: no one’s perfect. Just learn to accept people for what they are.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): It is more than likely that you’ll feel like withdrawing from people today. For a normally sociable sign this is unusual, but don’t worry: you’re just in need of some time by yourself without any interference from anyone. Just enjoy it and use the time to do exactly what you want to do.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Family matters will dominate your day and generally in a positive way. Maybe you’ll feel that you need to spend some time with family members or more likely you’ll be prompted into paying more attention to your relatives. If you’ve been neglecting someone be prepared to apologize.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): If mental confusion overtakes you today then blame it on the influence of Neptune. However, the effect of this is likely to impact on your performance at work or school. Keeping your mind on your key aims will help to counteract your scatty thoughts and help you focus.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You could find that a short period of apathy drags you down today as the aspects influencing your ruling planet suggest that you’ll let opportunities just drift by today. However, be on the lookout for something that could greatly benefit your personal life, so be open to some grounded advice and an invitation out!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You’ll be feeling vibrant and energized today, thanks to the influence of Mercury on your ruling planet. However, there might be an inclination towards quarrels with friends or family as the need to assert yourself kicks in.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): It is looking like it’s going to be a demanding day for you, with the focus on stress at work or school thanks to the influence of the moon on Neptune, which will make you ultra sensitive to other people. However, someone nearby will be able to offer a shoulder to lean on, which will turn out to be a real silver lining!
FOR THOSE OF US BORN ON THIS DAY: Happy Birthday! The months ahead will start with bundles of potential, but you will need to seize the opportunities. Being on the brink of some major planet shifts expect some changes early on in the year. You are likely to feel less fraught and more inclined to sticking at the things you start. Later in the year contentment for you will come in the form of excitement and fun. Romance will go through the usual hiccups as you waver between wanting intimacy and needing independence, but you are likely to find a happy medium if you choose.
