CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Pearl Bailey, Cy Young, John Major, Eugene McCarthy, Lucy Lawless, Bud Cort, Hideaki Takizawa, M.C. Hammer, Jennifer Capriati, Eric Idle, Jill Goodacre.
ARIES (March 21-April 19): The general trend will be towards sedate and slow, compared to the previous days. A quiet relaxing day is no bad thing. However If you find it difficult to settle into this calm vibe, then it may be that you need to have the last word on a particular matter. The planets suggest that you wait a while!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): If you can control an unusually impulsive and excitable nature, then it should be a fairly relaxed day. However, someone rather aloof and enigmatic is likely to catch your eye. Be careful, try and keep calm so you can see which way the land lies before you reveal your feelings!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): There’s a chance that some people may recognize a slight edge of selfishness in your actions. The lunar influences won’t assist good communication, so it is up to you to check whether you’re still in tune with others, or whether you’re actually on the wrong track altogether!
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Your day should start to improve when you tackle a domestic or home-related matter. Any niggles should be easily soothed if you’re prepared to listen, absorb, and then act on the information. Invitations out are more likely in the afternoon and you should find that you have a little more time and energy to socialize!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You are likely to be torn between balancing the needs of a romantic matter against the needs of a relative or friend. This minor, but irritating conflict of interests could tax your levels of patience and humor. The most workable strategy may be to try and please both sides a little!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Be prepared for a more reflective end to the week, as the sun/moon aspect is likely to make you dwell on things that at the moment appear more daunting than they really are. Some much needed focus and a dash of optimism will help enormously. Failing that, seek a second opinion from a fire sign!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): The aspects from both the sun and the moon suggest that you’ll have a minor clash with a friend. You’ll want to do things your way, while they will have other ideas. You might need to find an acceptable compromise to get around this, which will be easier than you realize!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Trying to get through to a friend might prove to be tricky; communication just won’t be your strongest point, with some scatterbrained ideas and misunderstandings muddying the waters even more. Postpone any important discussions, if you can, and spend the day chilling!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): It’s likely that you’ll be tempted to take on way too much and will end up achieving too little. If you have a goal or an aim, especially to do with your home or environment, take it in small, easy stages, and don’t try to do everything at once. As they sometimes say: slow but sure wins the day!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Given the current planetary line-up you are likely to be one of the most chilled out of all the signs, but don’t be too tempted to take the most undemanding route for the sake of ease. Don’t be too readily persuaded to turn a blind eye to one little hiccup in a friendship or relationship!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): If you find that you’re feeling restless, then blame it on the non-descript influences and channel your dissatisfaction into something positive. Doing something that is unusual and challenging will help restore what you feel is missing from your life: excitement and stimulation!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Matters of a more romantic nature are not likely to be uppermost in your thoughts, but by the evening you may well be regretting an oversight. Forgetting important dates; and not thinking before you speak could turn the air a little frosty. Extra lashings of sensitivity may well be required!
FOR THOSE OF US BORN ON THIS DAY: Happy Birthday! The months ahead for you are likely to be full of changes and challenges as you toil to combine the old and the new. This is an opposition that could come about in a number of ways, but the position of the planets suggests that this will happen in terms of your love life. It could be that you’ll be stuck in a particular way of thinking or it might be that you need to tone down certain expectations, which you can do. And once you have achieved this you will feel great and ready to take on anything. For some a job change is looking likely, particularly after the New Year, which will see a time of positive transition for many signs! This won’t necessarily be an easy time, but it will provide some rare opportunities to move you closer to your ultimate goals!
CELEBRITY GOSSIP: John Mayer may have won seven Grammys but watching his recent interviews suggests that success does not always make for happiness! However, there are some very positive movements in the planets that tell us John may soon have a whole new outlook on life and some new songs too!
