CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Dianne Wiest, Reba McEntire, Ken Howard, Frank Murkowski, Karen Kain, Vince Vaughn, Julia Stiles.
ARIES (March 21-April 19): The start of the weekend will offer some good opportunities in your pursuit of fun, although the energy levels of you, and possibly your friends, will begin to fall. Use the afternoon to engage in some gentle activities, but if you decide to go shopping watch the cash-flow!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): There’s no subtlety in the planets. A distinct clash between fire and earth may well amplify and emphasize what was an understated choice. The trouble is: today you may well allow your emotions to dictate the answer or solution. If you can wait a couple of days, do so!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Don’t look for problems; don’t invite them in by volunteering for something that eats into your weekend and it may be best not to attribute too much importance to something said or hinted. Incoming information may not be reliable and as such should be regarded in a healthily sceptical light!
CANCER (June 21-July 22): The day is not without a few glitches, here and there. Disagreements over what amounts to nothing are likely to evolve from nowhere. However, although certain interactions may seem energy-sapping, you will benefit massively from avoiding the glass-half-empty attitude!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): A non-descript day could leave you feeling listless and inclined to drift aimlessly. Nothing will really appeal and nothing will light your fire. Bear in mind that tomorrow’s planets will be more dynamic, you might want to use today constructively, either by relaxing, or catching up, or sorting out!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Go easy on romantic matters; a couple of challenging aspects suggest that it’s not a day to initiate dialogue over minor dissatisfactions. The moon in chilly Capricorn may well amplify those minor blips and create some unnecessary drama. Focus on the positives instead!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Friendships are likely to come under the spotlight, with a misunderstanding creating some unnecessary stress. You might feel as though a friend is being obstinate or difficult, but given the position of the moon it looks as though you’ll be the one who’s being rather standoffish!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): There will be a definite need to let off a little steam this weekend, to have fun and to forget all the heavy stuff for just for a little while. Having some breathing space to do your own thing will lighten your mood considerably. Getting embroiled in someone’s emotional dramas won’t!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Romantic matters and family matters are likely to dominate your thoughts, but in different ways. Romance looks good, while tensions at home will require some careful handling on your part. It’s possible that someone who doesn’t approve of a decision you made recently will speak up!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Yesterday’s uncertain mood is likely to latch onto a personal matter today. Take your time; think things through and give this matter a little consideration. The pesky culprit – the harsh lunar aspects, will fade bit-by-bit, clearing your head enough to identify the issue, if there is one!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Striking the right balance between sensitivity and activity won’t actually be as effortless as it sounds. It is perhaps down to delicate timing as much as anything else, but if you can get this right, then you’ll get to take a significant step forward in one key area that has maybe suffered a little stagnation recently!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): The effects of the moon/Neptune aspect could have you behaving a little too cautiously. The enduring aspect between them indicates some unsettled tensions that you need to address. Do this in a constructive way and you will feel as though a weight has been lifted!
FOR THOSE OF US BORN ON THIS DAY: Happy Birthday! The months ahead are likely to start rather intensely; you’ll tend to feel things deeply, which suggests that romance will be one roller-coaster ride! From May through to July you’ll need to schedule your time carefully, because there will be changes on the work or school front too! By August the pace will thankfully slacken, enabling you to reap the rewards of a demanding few months! There might also be a tricky choice to make towards the end of the year: do you go with what you know or do you branch out a little despite some reservations? Don’t just make a snap decision on this one and be prepared to do some delving! Come the New Year you’ll find that your social diary suddenly becomes very full.
CELEBRITY GOSSIP: James Corden is due to be taking over hosting of the popular Late Late Show very shortly, but the planets do not indicate that this will be a good move either for James or for the future of the show. There are a number of planetary influences that all point to the need for James to think again and quickly!
