CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Juliette Lewis, Michael Gross, Meredith Baxter, Maureen Stapleton, Prince William, Mariette Hartley, Prince William Windsor, Ray Davies.
ARIES (March 21-April 19): A minor problem with a particular friend is likely to come under the spotlight sooner rather than later, thanks to prickly lunar influences in the morning. The negatives may be overly exaggerated, while the positives may be overlooked. Don’t take too much to heart, and avoid making snap judgments!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): A slight sense of frustration or discontent is likely to descend, thanks to thorny planetary influences. You might feel that someone could be exerting a little more effort, or that you’re not being appreciated enough. However, since perspective is lacking, you may find that you’re being slightly harsh!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Earlier influences indicate that silly arguments and emotional disputes will be more likely in the first half of the day. Letting off steam will be essential. Rather than expressing yourself assertively, engage in an activity that will help to redirect your energies and will enable you to hit the right balance!
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Lunar influences will become supportive after lunch. You’re more likely to come across as approachable and reasonable, so if you haven’t cleared the air with a certain person about an ongoing disagreement then today presents another chance to really get everything out in the open!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Watery influences may not usher in that much insight and sensitivity levels in general may be quite high. It is advisable that you steer away from those brief, romantic encounters that can be quite intense, because in your case you could end up feeling rather unsettled by someone!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): It is likely to be a day where passions smolder without igniting, thanks to the intensity of the moon. That said; it is a day to concentrate on your relationships in general, not just romance, because something or someone could nudge a new friendship in the right direction!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): The watery moon is likely to put you in a more serious mood. You’re typically a free-spirit, but the current influences are likely to feel a little restrictive, not least because nearly every other sign will be governed by emotions, while you’ll be governed by logic. It’s best to keep the peace!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Smoldering influences may well have more of an influence on a specific decision than you realize. It’s a day where chance comments from others may sink in slowly and have some kind of effect long after the aspects have gone. Something said today is likely to crop up again in the near future!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): A couple of beneficial influences will be almost lost in amongst the more intense ones: the watery moon is likely to pave the way for some time-consuming dialogue. However, you’re not likely to be in the mood for this. A somewhat inflexible or stubborn attitude may need to be softened!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You’re likely to go into overdrive when it comes to support, assistance and advice. If yesterday you were a little laid-back, today you won’t be. While you are likely to help someone enormously, do be warned that you could get a little carried away with how far they and you can actually go!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): The lunar intensity is very likely to direct your attention to material and practical matters. Whatever you do, you could end up viewing even the most trivial things an all-or-nothing way, whether it’s shopping, cleaning up or doing chores. Try not to let emotions dictate non-emotional issues!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): There is a rather restless vibe hanging around and you may end up noting the wasted hours. Plan something very specific and structured into the day. If cash is looking solid, then it will be an ideal day to go browsing, but do draft up a fun itinerary that contains short, sharp targets!
FOR THOSE OF US BORN ON THIS DAY: Happy Birthday! The months ahead are likely to start on a very positive note, thanks to a string of influences that will last for much of July. However, you might not be able to fully appreciate this, because you’ll be easily distracted by those little details in key areas of your life. Try to recognize the wider picture in order to make the most of this month. You might feel a distinct lack of energy at the start of August, but this will be very short-lived. November is likely to bring some minor problems in terms of romance; you’ll find that you need to be a little more flexible in your approach, but by the end of the year you will find that you become much more sensitive to the needs of others.
