CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Shia LaBeouf, Adrienne Barbeau, Chad Everett, Gene Wilder, Jacques Cousteau, Joe Montana, Vince Lombardi.
ARIES (March 21-April 19): A surge of earth energy, courtesy of the moon, suggests that you’ll be inclined to demand very high standards on the work/career front. As a result it’s not likely to be an effortless day. In fact you may be tempted to micro-manage everything. Your best strategy will be to ease up a little!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Communications aren’t especially great, since it’s a day where you are extremely likely to misunderstand the essential points being made. It could be that you become a little too assertive, especially on the work front. Clashes are likely, unless you can meet others halfway!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): It’s probably a question of plugging away at one particular issue, thanks to fairly industrious influences. That said; don’t let this one matter become the focal-point of a control-issue. Aim for mutual understanding and cooperation, which will help resolve tricky decisions cleanly!
CANCER (June 21-July 22): A sun/moon combination may well reveal one or two minor fault- lines on a practical level. It’s possible that an error or defect is revealed. That said; this is one of those days where you’re likely to rise to the challenge and the end result could be a vast improvement on the original matter!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You might find that there’s a planetary drive to achieve. However, you could slip into a slightly fixated mood, especially if a particular matter isn’t developing the way you like or expect. As with a couple of other signs, a control issue may be the root cause of poor results!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You should find that the day is fairly easy going, although there will be the tendency to be a little blasé about other people’s responsibilities. If you’re working towards deadlines or to tight schedules then you may need some kind of strategy to keep on track and on task!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): It’s not a bad day at all, but you may be inclined to regard certain developments in a fairly inflexible way. Money matters are looking a little iffy but not impossible to resolve, while work-related matters are likely to be demanding, but not beyond your scope, especially if you look beyond the obvious!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Minor influences suggest that to take charge of the day and feel more in control, you may need to be a little more adventurous from the start. Decisions may well be harder to make, but if you can commit decisively, then there’s certainly a sense of achievement to be realized!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Peers, colleagues and possibly even bosses may well express certain expectations when it comes to group efforts. The trouble is: you’ll be in the mood to extend yesterday’s fun vibe, while others will expect a little effort and consideration. It’s not a day to try and slip away quietly!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): A self critical mood could descend: you will feel that achievements are a little hollow. The problem is a Mercury/moon combination, which will have an impact on the way you feel about yourself. Perhaps it’s a question of viewing past efforts with a more discerning eye!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): There may be quite a non-descript feel about the day. Perhaps something will crop up to needle you or play on your mind. It’s possible that a lingering commitment or promise will need to be delivered. Whatever has got under your skin can be removed with the right frame of mind!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Your patience levels may be running low and there may even be the temptation to deliver a few home truths. It all depends on how it is done, but there is a strong indication that you may end up over-compensating in one area to make up a lack in another; this could backfire!
FOR THOSE OF US BORN ON THIS DAY: Happy Birthday! The year ahead could start with some unrealistic dreams about faraway places and notions of travel. However, these dreams could become a reality if you’re prepared to be pragmatic and put in the necessary effort. Watch for potential cash flow problems, especially around October, when unexpected expenses could crop up. Avoid taking out any credit in this month and don’t rely on extra work or overtime to boost your income. The planets will take a positive turn in the New Year, which will see you being flirty and adventurous. April could see you being hesitant in key areas of your life, but this will be short lived, because towards the end of the year you will start having lots of fun again!
CELEBRITY GOSSIP: Marion Cotillard has been a very successful actress to date and has now tried her hand at a very high-brow movie, co-starring with Michael Fassbender in a production of Macbeth. Unfortunately for Marion, the planets suggest that this project will not go well and she may need to find another blockbuster to boost her career once more!
