CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Tupac Shakur, Joan Van Ark, China Shavers, Frederick Koehler, Stan Laurel, Joyce Carol Oates, Fredrick Koehler.
ARIES (March 21-April 19): With a little care and prudence you could turn the useful influences into a day where you enjoy a little retail therapy. Cash matters look stable and there’s a trace of glamour that could influence your sense of style without going over the top. If you want to impress someone, today’s the day to do it!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): It’s a great day if you can avoid being a trace too idealistic. You don’t have to lower your standards; you just need to meet others halfway. The potential pitfall to sidestep will be in a complication on the work/domestic front through a poor or incomplete communication!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Positive aspects are likely to cancel out the negatives by drawing on your tactful powers of persuasion. If someone starts digging in their heels you’ll soon find a way to get them motivated again. Humor will certainly work, but not half as much as some subtle flattery and attention!
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Today’s influences will probably seem rather contradictory to a water sign. The pushier aspects will direct you into being a little more assertive than normal. An evening out with friends might sound a little unfeasible, but there’s a strong possibility of a romantic encounter or hint of interest!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Developments on the romance and emotional front might not go the way you plan, but your best strategy will be to keep your cool. Communications won’t be altogether reliable, so what you may hear could actually be misleading. Put the matter on ice until the evening!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Recognition, promotions, and even financial incentives are highly likely for most Virgos today, thanks to strong influences. For others, there should be more than enough signs that you’re on the right track, even if you have some doubts to begin with. Listen to praise and approving remarks for the best guidance!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Taxing or tricky plans/goals can actually become a lot more feasible. Combining your creative flair and someone else’s sensible, down-to-earth approach could be the winning formula for success and progress. That said; if the down-to-earth perspective advices a little more caution, then heed it!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You might feel inclined to buck the trend in order to speed up a process, but the very supportive influences won’t be present all day. You may experience some doubt or second-thoughts in the morning. If so, think carefully before committing to anything that involves a risk!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): There’s a distinct sense of lethargy amongst the planets, but for you this is no bad thing, because it should have the dual- benefit of giving you some breathing space and getting you motivated to make some positive changes. The most likely area ripe for change is on the emotional front!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): There’s a trace of stagnation in the lunar influences aspect. The emotional front is the key area that may be affected. A tendency to dither or hesitate could send mixed signals. Be certain of your feelings before declaring anything, but try not to present too much of a chilly front, either!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): There’s a slight air of selfishness in today’s planetary line- up, which won’t serve you well at all. You may tend to jump to conclusions or assume certain things without checking first. This could even be connected to something that you’ve been putting off for some time!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): A fairly easy-going day is on offer if you can get into a relaxed mode. However, you’re likely to rise to some kind of challenge and you’re likely to be in a slightly stubborn mood too. Personal pride will perhaps be a factor. Bear this in mind if someone comes to your aid!
FOR THOSE OF US BORN ON THIS DAY: Happy Birthday! The months ahead are likely to start with a definite focus on fun, although there’s a danger that you’ll be a little too dismissive of your work or school commitments. A couple of interesting romantic developments will make the start of summer look very interesting, while August will be a challenging month, introducing some changes at work or school that will take some getting used to. However, positive planetary influences in October will see you fired up again and more in control, while the New Year will see more dramatic changes as important planetary shifts indicate important and positive changes in the workplace: a new job or a promotion should form a part of your New Year’s resolution!
CELEBRITY GOSSIP: Orlando Bloom has had quite a relaxed year, but the next few months are going to see Orlando being increasingly busy. The planets tell us that Orlando will be taking on a new role that will require him to do some serious and intense preparation work!
