CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Janis Ian, James Garner, Jackie Chan, Francis Ford Coppola, Billie Holiday, Russell Crowe.
ARIES (March 21-April 19): The inflexibility that you felt yesterday should ease considerably today. Take the opportunity of the current planets in your sign to do something adventurous that will appeal to your whacky nature. Your imagination is really working overtime right now, so use it to good effect!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): It is possible that today you’ll decide to take on some ambitious venture or task but by the end of the day you’ll realize that you’ve bitten off more than you can chew! Don’t try to blame others for not helping; instead just plan out your day and include some realistic goals, rather than impossible ones.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Today will be a good day for browsing at the mall, lunching and gossiping with friends. You probably will not feel like doing anything that involves work, although there will be a need to give in and finish something that is long overdue! Tackling it sooner will mean you can enjoy the rest of the day with a clear conscience.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): With a trio of powerful aspects appearing today you can expect to enjoy a day of activity and achievement, particularly since those aspects influencing your ruling planet are so positive. Doing something creative and out of the ordinary will appeal right now!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You could be in line for a lucky day today: a small cash win or an act of someone’s generosity could mean that you’ll feel a little richer today! Why not use your newfound wealth and look for a glamorous outfit to spice up your wardrobe!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): A challenging and negative influence from Jupiter is likely to have you rethinking things, especially in the evening. It is possible that your expectations of someone will be unrealistic and because you’ll find it difficult to be objective it will be difficult to reach common ground today.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): It’s more than possible that as the influence of Venus fades today you’ll feel less inclined to do anything that requires too much effort. You’re not usually one to let opportunities slip by, but kicking back for a day wouldn’t be a bad thing. Recharge your batteries with lunching, shopping and having fun with like minded friends.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): If you wake to find that you’re feeling depressed and fed up then blame the moon! Investing your energies might help alleviate your mood; socializing with some earthy and grounded friends who won’t indulge your moodiness will make you feel even better.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Thanks to both Uranus and Saturn you might find that you’ll be torn between doing what you want and what needs doing. So get those outstanding chores out of the way in the morning, which will clear your mind enough, which will enable you to enjoy the rest of the day your way!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You might find that you are particularly charming today in terms of romance, but you’ll still be inclined to let things pass you by! Things look more promising for the evening, as long as you’re prepared to do a little groundwork. Remember that saying: no pain, no gain, Capricorn!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): A challenging aspect from Mercury is likely to pose some problems for you in matters of the heart and is likely to affect you for a few days. It is your natural detachment that is stopping things from moving forward.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): A couple of negative aspects influencing your ruling planet are likely to be the cause of a few minor tensions today, especially at home. It’s possible that you might question whether you can trust someone, but thanks to the trio of positive aspects in the water signs you’ll be able to clear the air on your terms.
FOR THOSE OF US BORN ON THIS DAY: Happy Birthday! The months ahead are likely to start with a few ups and downs, as the planets exert an unsettled influence. Romance will come under the spotlight in early summer; it may be time for a rethink, but don’t worry, because romance will start to take off again after the summer and before Christmas. After the New Year you’ll find yourself very much in demand, and be prepared to meet someone who is a little wacky and off the wall. They will be like a breath of fresh air, once you’ve got used to them, especially when you move into a more rebellious phase. This meeting will either develop into a very close and long- lasting friendship, or for singles, this could become something even more special!
CELEBRITY GOSSIP: Horror movies have proved increasingly popular in recent years, but Gemma Arterton’s latest film takes a completely new approach to the genre. It is hard to tell whether the movie is primarily a comedy or a horror-flick, but the planets tell us that audiences are going to love this new approach and the future looks bright for Gemma!
