CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Tony Blair, Bob Seger, Pierce Brosnan, Orson Welles, George Clooney, Tom Brainard, Willie Mays.
ARIES (March 21-April 19): As a sign who relishes their independence you may find today brings a little reminder that sometimes it’s good to have people who can lend an extra hand. Trying to do everything yourself isn’t likely to go wrong, but if you can achieve the same results in half the time, then why let pride get in the way?
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Incoming news may touch on something old, or bring up something forgotten. The general vibe could be a little unsettled – perhaps old feelings will be raked up. If this is the case then don’t allow it to take over. Nip it in the bud as soon as possible and then forget about it!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You may experience a slight clash of energies and it could take its toll, while the evening sees the unsettling influences shift again, so don’t overreact and you’ll steer through the trickier parts of day. You should aim to resolve a disagreement with a friend or close relative as soon as you can!
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Thanks to fickle Mercury, you’re on course for a rather erratic day. In terms of the work/ career front, you’re likely to experience the feeling that you have hit a brick wall; it may even be that it’s not as simple as a right solution and a wrong one. If so, then don’t be afraid to seek advice!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Communications may well be unhelpful, not least because you may lack the staying power to act on what you hear. You’ll be keen to explore new interests and new avenues, but you might find that you tend to reject anything that can’t be done or completed in double-quick time!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Cash matters are likely to zoom to the top of your agenda. The consequences of any expensive spending will become abundantly clear. That said; it’s a day where you’re very likely to address what needs addressing sensibly, rationally and with a clear end result firmly in mind!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Certain influences may well be very subtle, but quite effective in creating a slight rift on a personal level. Simple decisions may seem to develop minor complications, thanks to a slight clash between what you want and what someone else prefers. It’s certainly a day to process what you hear!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Communications are reasonably well aspected, as long as you can accept that it is not a day to be a little ‘out there’, but a day where rules and regulations need to be met. If you’re faced with a straightforward choice between an exciting, new route and an established but dull one, then go for dull!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Certain influences may well disrupt your social circle and while the disruption will be low-level and temporary, it could cause some underlying tensions. Sometimes it’s okay to take a step back, particularly when objectivity is lacking. A little breathing space may be all that you need!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): It will be a strange day. On the one hand the practical/material front is looking pretty solid and the scope for even more improvement could set the day’s agenda. However, it’s possible that a relationship requires an equal amount of time to get it back on track. This may be one of those pesky ‘either/or’ choices!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You’re likely to get carried away, thanks to incoming information, which may well be far too distracting. Sometimes it is necessary to put the great ideas on the back-burner for another time, and this is one of those days. Concentrate on what definitely needs doing, rather than on what might possibly need doing!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): There may be a tendency to overlook all the great possibilities and focus instead on the unfeasible and the unrealistic, thanks to misguiding influence of Mercury. Don’t attach too much important to material gain; think instead about wider and more long term issues, such as quality of life!
FOR THOSE OF US BORN ON THIS DAY: Happy Birthday! The months ahead are likely to start on a weak note in terms of your cash flow, thanks to obstructive aspects. June sees your finances strengthen through work-related opportunities, but don’t forget to have fun too! August will bring some taxing moments in terms of your relationships, while September sees certain travel plans requiring a second look. October will be the strongest month in terms of your future aims and your career, but you will tend to worry too much. Be more flexible in December, and try to avoid being too independent in January. In terms of romance your strongest months will be from October through to December, although the post New Year period is likely to throw in a couple of interesting developments!
CELEBRITY GOSSIP: After his shock announcement that he would be leaving One Direction, Zayn Malik was nowhere to be seen. However, he is now posing for the paparazzi again and the planets tell us that this is readiness for the launch of his solo career!
