CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Candace Cameron, Candace Cameron Bure, Marilu Henner, Merle Haggard, Ari Meyers, Michelle Phillips, Dianne Brill.
ARIES (March 21-April 19): The day may feel quite stodgy and possibly a little restrictive. Don’t worry, because the quirkier vibe will return in due course. In the meantime, given it’s a day with very few distractions you could address any outstanding tasks and chores that require plenty of concentration!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): The recently carefree vibe is likely to be replaced with a much more focused one. That said; don’t let a sense of power go to your head, since there is a slight inclination to block someone else’s efforts and endeavors. Your intentions will be good, but your reasons may need a rethink!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Your cash flow is looking pretty stable, but a very sudden increase of impulsive influences suggests that you could be easily persuaded to buy something that isn’t on your list. You can be a little susceptible to sale tactics at the best of times and today is perhaps one of those times!
CANCER (June 21-July 22): It’s not a bad day, but one unsettling aspect may have you concentrating too much on an area that can be left to its own devices. Keep potential problems well and truly in perspective. Think twice before claiming something; otherwise you could end up setting quite a challenge for yourself!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): The grounded lunar aspects bring a touch of objectivity and will enable communication in a constructive way for much of the day. A moment of shrewd and/or perceptive timing is highly likely to bode well for emotional/romantic matters. Don’t assume that you’re the one who’s in the right, though!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): The planetary emphasis is likely to zone in on personal matters. The consistently industrious vibe has the potential to supply a bit of a boost, although this will be due to effort rather than luck. It’s also a day to clear up loose ends – it’s possible that there’s a discovery to be made!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): There’s a slight chill in the air, which suggests that communications could go awry in your personal relationships. There’s perhaps a very minor control issue influencing your responses. That said; it will be possible to channel this constructively in order to focus on one particular work based conundrum!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): It’s a day where you may find it harder than usual to be objective, since an emotionally-tinted vibe could be too subtle to detect and recognize. You may think that you’re approaching most matters with admirable impartiality. However; you’ll need extra focus to achieve this!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You may feel a little at odds with today’s rather staid vibe. You may even feel, very strongly, that your ability to think outside the box is being somewhat stifled. However, your perceptions are likely to be influenced by a rare glass-half- empty perspective. This will ease!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): It’s a day where the planets will be more supportive than you realize. While you may be inclined to sit on certain matters, do bear in mind that your best strategy is consistency: stick to your usual methods and approaches from start to finish. It may help to avoid prickly discussions, just for now!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): A Jupiter/moon combination is likely to have a slightly counterproductive effect in an otherwise relatively productive day. You may need to respond to incoming information with some caution, but don’t necessarily reject a useful or practical course of action if it doesn’t measure up completely!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Miscommunications are not likely to be major ones, but they do have the potential to cause a little awkwardness, especially if you speak before thinking. It’s rare for a poised Pisces to be a little clumsy or bumbling, but it is likely to be one of those days. Check your facts first!
FOR THOSE OF US BORN ON THIS DAY: Happy Birthday! The months ahead are likely to start with a need to do something different, something new, but you’re likely to be stumped for ideas, thanks to Jupiter! However, all the planets will be pointing to considering a new, more physical, more energetic activity that also helps to build a little self discipline, which will be useful in September, when the transit of some planets bring out your more exacting side. Beware of routine (in the form of work or school) taking over your life in the winter – reserve time for leisure, which is just as important, and don’t waste the numerous opportunities for romance! Reserve time for your friends in the spring too; some success at work or school is likely to divert your attention too much!
CELEBRITY GOSSIP: Surprisingly, given that he is a host of a car programme rather than an actor or singer, Jeremy Clarkson is one of the best known TV stars around the world. Unfortunately, there is a chance that he may not be on our screens for much longer. The planets indicate that he may well be looking forward to a chance to relax!
