CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Selma Blair, Frances McDormand, Jim Metzler, Diana Trask, Bob Fosse, June Carter Cash.
ARIES (March 21-April 19): Given the marginally superficial vibe it’s a day where you may be too inclined to accept any work-related challenge or suggestion at face value. Do identify any time constraints or limits before settling on any such agreements. It may be best to steer clear of formal contracts for today though!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Keep a tight hold on your wallet and cards, since impulsive purchases could be a cause for regret towards the weekend. It may be necessary to check any relevant returns policies, just in case, since a shrewder vibe will descend in a couple of days or so and will encourage you to rethink your spending habits!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): If a slightly carefree and careless vibe led to minor mistakes yesterday, then today you may sense a slightly pressured and humorless vibe urging you to correct them. It’ll be best to respond to valid criticisms gracefully. It’s certainly not a day to try and sidestep your responsibilities!
CANCER (June 21-July 22): A couple of restrictive influences maintaining control will move in after lunch. While the planets may appear to give the green light to be adventurous, the key word is ‘appear.’ It’ll be best to stick to what you know when it comes to branching out and when it comes to a matter from the very recent past!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): The general pace is very likely to slow down, especially after lunch. There’s no point trying to hurry or rush certain decisions in the afternoon. By the same token, something that you may have been waiting for may require a little more time yet. There’ll be no point trying to speed this up, either!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): A definite AM/PM split in the day may well materialize in a straightforward choice between following your head and following your heart. Unusually for Virgos, there could be a very slight trace of selfishness influencing this choice. It may be best, just for now, to go with the most sensible option!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): While the morning is likely to be breezy but unpredictable, the afternoon could feel a little stodgy but more reliable. It’s a day to expect minor delays and holdups. Inconvenient timing may well be another irritation to factor in. A piece of overdue news may well surface sometime after lunch!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): It’s not a bad day, although the brisk vibe in the earlier hours could encourage a couple of impulsive moments. A chance to make a quick buck or two should be approached with caution and investigated fully, since certain material and practical matters are not likely to be well-aspected!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): If you find that you’re simply coasting effortlessly through the earlier hours, then stop for a moment. It’s possible that you’ll have overlooked something. It’s a day where metaphorical first- appearances won’t be so reliable. Keep your cool and address whatever has been missed!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You may be up against a rather an inflexible or stubborn attitude from the start. If so, then wait a while, since a discernible shift after lunch could vindicate your opinion without doubt. That said; how you go about communicating this tactfully may well be another matter altogether!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): The afternoon vibe may encourage a slightly restricted approach to a particular matter that seemed to offer a great deal more flexibility in the first instance. You may even feel that something is slowly slipping from your control. That said; it’s not a day to give up at the first hurdle!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): There’s a slight emphasis on material matters, with a particular accent on productivity, especially in the earlier hours. Do take care with accepting additional responsibilities though, since there’s a good chance that incoming news later in the day may well add to your to-do list!
FOR THOSE OF US BORN ON THIS DAY: Happy Birthday! The months ahead are likely to start with you being torn between sticking with what you know, and going for something completely new and rather unknown! The key area most likely to be under close scrutiny will be joint ventures and partnerships. September will see you enjoying a huge burst of energy, during which time you’ll feel the need for a thorough clear-out, paving the way for either a bright, new look for you, and possibly for your home, which is great timing, because soon after romance will start picking up, and with your newfound confidence you’ll soon attract the attention of someone who was previously a little cool! However, the late winter will see you becoming more fickle in your love life!
CELEBRITY GOSSIP: Jessie J has recently completed a hugely successful tour of the USA and Canada, which she is following with a series of global shows in a number of countries. The planets indicate that all this touring may be taking its toll and a lengthy rest may soon be on her agenda!
