CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Isiah Thomas, Cloris Leachman, Willie Nelson, Jill Clayburgh, Kirsten Dunst, Jeff Timmons.
ARIES (March 21-April 19): There is a fair bit of sensitivity influencing your mood, but it may be misdirected. It’s a day where good intentions could be misunderstood, so watch out for appearing too pushy or assertive. It’s not just about clear communication; it’s about being a little softer in the way you approach things!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Planetary influences are divisive. You will be able to maintain enough objectivity with regard to an emotional matter where no one else can. The trouble is you’ll be a little chilly in delivery. This is all on a day where you may well alienate others, however constructive you’re trying to be!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You can afford to cut a few corners, as long as you’re sensible about it. Too much attention to unnecessary detail will only slow you down. If you want to impress the right types on the romance front, then you perhaps can afford to take charge, as long as you don’t take yourself too seriously!
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Being firm won’t be too easy, but it might save you a headache later on, since it’s a day where something said could go awry or be misinterpreted. Don’t feel pressured into doing any more than you have agreed to do. It may help to establish clear boundaries from the start!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): It’s a day where you may feel a little pressured into reversing recent decisions. The sense of pressure is not likely to come from an individual; it’s more likely to come a feeling that you need to somehow ‘step back in line’ with others. It’ll be a little too easy to undo your hard work!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): A reluctance to take any chances whatsoever could make this day quite a productive one. On that note; don’t allow someone else to subtly maneuver you into accepting uninvited responsibility. You don’t need to be the one who takes all the risks. It’s certainly a day to resist sweet-talk!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Heavy influences are likely to generate a doubtful or slightly insecure mood for everyone. Trying to second-guess what others may be expecting from you will only increase your stress levels. If you try to remember that others will be subject to the same minor anxieties, you may find the day easier to navigate!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): There’s a hint that you might be harboring confused feelings over a potential romantic interest. A discovery or disclosure might intensify those feelings for a while. It’s perhaps not the best day to try and unravel those feelings just yet, since your choices may become more apparent by the weekend!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): There’s a touch of frost in the planets, but this may be no bad thing, since you’ll gain plenty of objectivity too. It’s an excellent day for problem-spotting and problem-solving. Whether the issues are lingering ones, or ones appearing on the horizon, then address them now!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): The moon indicates a bit of a thankless day. It could feel as though everything requires far more effort than usual and that incoming appreciation is in short supply. All that said; if there is a gap or a missing link of some kind, today may well provide the answer or reasoning later on!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): It’s not likely to be a fabulous day. Lunar influences bring some unwelcome tensions into your day-to-day interactions and minor disagreements could develop over the most trivial of things. Very, very minor errors and genuine mistakes made by others should be regarded as unintended ones!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): The day won’t be as counterproductive as you assume. An ongoing project, possibly connected to your personal life, could get the support/input it needs. However, you may not accept the proposed changes or tweaks. Since negotiations are poorly aspected, put this one on the back burner for today!
FOR THOSE OF US BORN ON THIS DAY: Happy Birthday! The months ahead are likely to start with a need to clear the air with either a close friend or your significant other; problems that have been simmering can be addressed, but you’ll need to do some straight talking! The run up to Christmas is likely to be filled with parties and gatherings, but after the New Year things should slow down quite significantly. This will be a welcome break and will give you the time that you need to make some significant decisions that are likely to relate to your future career. Emotionally, this looks like a good year. Although there will be no major changes in this area it is a period of consolidation that will see you settling into a very contented relationship!
CELEBRITY GOSSIP: Aaron Paul developed a huge following thanks to his role in Breaking Bad, but he hasn’t yet followed it up with anything of similar popularity. The planets tell us that this may be about to changes. There is a small window of opportunity in the next few weeks for Aaron to find what may be an even bigger role!
