CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Naomi Campbell, Peter Nero, Steven Patrick Morrissey, Sir Laurence Olivier, Richard Benjamin, Naomi Cambell, Laurence Olivier, Paul Winfield, Susan Strasberg.
ARIES (March 21-April 19): You may need to watch the cash-flow and you’ll need to steer clear of taking out any credit or loans, even if you’re absolutely certain that your finances can cope. Thanks to an iffy Mercury/Mars aspect transactions and financial contracts aren’t brilliantly aspected!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Persisting with a practical or work-related matter might seem fruitless or thankless, especially if others can’t or won’t support your efforts. However, keep going. Even if you don’t get the best results you’ll still get a sense of satisfaction that you’ve done your best!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): If romance has gone off the boil a little, then use today to get it simmering again. Communications in emotional matters are well aspected, thanks to softer influences, but do be warned: those soft influences suggest that the work/school front will almost certainly require a little more oomph, not less!
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Don’t rely too much on your instinct or intuition over a certain matter, because a minor but unhelpful aspect from Saturn is likely to over-influence any sixth sense. You may be inclined to advocate caution at the wrong point. If you’re not clear, say nothing!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): After the last couple of iffy days you may be facing a backlog of work just before the start of the weekend, but don’t worry. The day has the potential to be efficient enough to cut through the excess with few problems. Don’t forget to take some time to recharge your batteries this evening!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): The planet Mars may well undermine your sense of confidence, especially when it comes to very recent choices, decisions or new directions. Something that you may have settled on could provoke second thoughts. Give this matter plenty of time; don’t backtrack just yet!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Like a couple of other signs, it’s not the greatest day for snap decisions. A ‘cooling-off’ period will be a very sensible strategy to employ on various fronts. Tell yourself that whatever has caught your attention will still be there tomorrow, when improved influences will help you make more of an informed decision!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): A Mars/Mercury/Pluto combination suggests that you may experience mixed messages or signals at a point where you thought you were getting somewhere. However, keep critical comments to a minimum. It’s possible that something (or someone) needs just a little more time!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): A slow, sluggish mood is not what anyone might expect from a fire-sign, but if you find that your surrounded by energetic types, then don’t compare yourself unfavorably with them. A plodding pace is likely to be just as effective, if not more so, than a mad dash!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Receding influences should offset or reverse the recent slump. It may even reverse the slump a little too much, because if there’s ever a day where you’re more likely to purchase new clothes or expensive accessories it’s today. If you need to add some sparkle, do it on a budget!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): The day will be an improvement on yesterday, in that you get a lot more freedom to do what you want, but there are still one or two minor pitfalls to avoid. Work or school may set the scene for some fairly harmless misunderstandings, but you might be inclined to overreact!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): It is definitely a mixed day: on the one hand people are generally supportive, but it may feel as though one senior figure is making too many demands. Similarly an emotional matter may appear discouraging, but a more flexible approach on your part will make it easier to talk!
FOR THOSE OF US BORN ON THIS DAY: Happy Birthday! The months ahead begin with a focus on material matters. In particular you will need to keep an eye on your finances and budgeting. However, there will still be opportunities for you to enjoy some spending later in the year. The middle of the year sees your creativity blossoming and this will be an area of your life that will take on an increasing importance over the rest of the year. Romantically, there is a strong chance of a whirlwind romance in the summer which may have a deep impact for some time to come. This romance will also keep you focused on your artistic ability and may inspire you to create something genuinely impressive. Towards the end of the year your financial situation should improve significantly as a result of some exciting new opportunities.
CELEBRITY GOSSIP: Harry Styles has always been the key figure in One Direction, but there are now rumors that he may be about to split too. The planets suggest that despite being the most popular member of the band, trying to make his way solo could prove to be a big mistake!
