CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Alec Baldwin, Jennie Garth, Marlon Brando, Marsha Mason, Amanda Bynes, Eddie Murphy.
ARIES (March 21-April 19): Slightly critical influences suggest that any imperfections in your relationships may become particularly noticeable. You may be inclined to find fault with others over fairly small or trivial issues. This is a temporary blip, so don’t act on it today. Keep your thoughts to yourself!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): While the settling vibe will be one that encourages a responsible approach you may find that you’re more inclined to behave in an out-of-character way. It’s quite possible that a small or minor obstacle on the emotional front will be the root cause of this temporary trend!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): A confidence-shaking Venus/moon aspect is likely to precipitate a few inner doubts on the work front, and you could feel as though you’re struggling. A helping hand may be extended, but it’s best to accept that not everything goes right all of the time. Try not to set impossible standards!
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Practical plans and efforts may well develop complications to an extent. If this is down to an oversight on your part, then be receptive to any suggestions to correct the error. You’ll be aware of a right way to deal with blunders and glitches and you’ll definitely be aware of the wrong way!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): It is possible that you experience a slightly indecisive streak, thanks to an obstructive Venus/moon influence. It is likely that there’ll be something that you want to change, but might feel as though others will express disapproval. The fact is you should assess the situation discreetly!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You might feel you need to be a little stern with regard to a work/career matter. However, this could descend into outright inflexibility. It’s possible that you’ll be too focused on the end result to really consider your tactics, but in order to win more support, take a more tailor-made approach!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Work/career matters may take a slight dip. Maybe effort, or the lack of it, will be the root cause of this minor and temporary slump. If you can’t seem to say the right thing, then take some time out. Generate a little space for yourself and be happy with what you do achieve!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): The moon’s influence is likely to radiate a corrective vibe, which will be useful on one level, although it could create a little tension with colleagues. While you’ll start to recognize what needs addressing, you’ll still need to keep the communication lines open for those around you!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): It is likely to be a slower day, where your focus may be a little scattered from the start. You may feel that you could get more done by going slightly against the grain, but if you’re not getting anywhere with one particular matter you might want to postpone it for a couple of days!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You could find that you’re not as susceptible to the critical vibe as others. You may even notice how other people appear to be quite torn between different choices and directions. That said; it’s a day where trying to offer helpful guidance may not have the warmest reception!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Today’s planets are looking pretty stagnant, which is likely to become apparent in practical and material matters. Great bargains and/or deals may turn out to be not so great; or something that seems to offer a fabulous way forward may turn out to be a false start. Proceed with caution!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Tricky planetary mixes are actually likely to present a more productive day than you realize. Don’t get too despondent if a work/career matter appears to be going off the boil, or not going you had hoped, because it’ll probably go better than expected. Romance, as an aside, is on the up too!
FOR THOSE OF US BORN ON THIS DAY: Happy Birthday! The months ahead indicate a period of significant personal growth that may well lead to some surprising changes of direction both emotionally and in terms of your long term goals. The planetary influences are turning your attention to issues affecting society as a whole over the next few months and you may find yourself drawn to some kind of voluntary activity. Romantic matters are especially well favored in the second half of the year. You may be surprised by a change in your feelings around this time, but trust your heart as only it knows what it is you really yearn for in a relationship. In general this is a year in which you need to learn to listen to your intuition.
CELEBRITY GOSSIP: Isla Fisher has another child on the way, but that doesn’t mean that her career is going to be put on hold. In fact, the planets tell us that Isla is considering taking up writing and now would be the ideal time for her to try her luck. It seems likely that an early screen play could be with us by the Fall!
