IF IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY

Being an earth sign and ruled by logical Saturn, when making decisions, you research the facts, consider the actual things through and discuss them with others. Only then do you think about those decisions. Yet as you’ll discover, not everything is up to you. While others may have the final say, the outcome may be a matter of destiny. As a Capricorn, you prefer to create your own future. Yet, deep down, you understand the role destiny takes in each individual’s life, including yours.

Aries March 20 – April 19

Recent rather worrying situations made you wonder if somebody close is being as honest as they say they are. While you rarely worry about such matters, a series of sudden changes and inconsistencies have made you think. While those concerns are understandable, it’s the result of confusion, and nothing more.

Taurus April 20 – May 20

By and large, the gracious, harmonious nature of your ruling planet Venus is an asset. Now, however, that desire to keep the peace could lead to problems. Why? Because you’ll need to take a tough line, if not be very forthright, with one particular individual. You really have no choice.

Gemini May 21 – June 20

One of the great things about being an easygoing air sign is you don’t take others’ moods personally. Still, even you could find the grumpy attitude of certain individuals tedious. If so, just busy yourself elsewhere for a while. This gives them time to deal with, and say farewell to, their problems.

Cancer June 21 – July 21

Nobody would blame you for taking the rather brusque manner of those who’re uptight individuals the wrong way. While you’d be justified in thinking they’ve been rude, the fact is, they’ve had too much to do, and not enough time to do it. For now, say nothing. Within days they’ll make it up to you.

Leo July 22 – August 22

Only days ago, you’d have sworn you’d never make certain changes in your life, routine or alliances. Yet judging by the intense links between your ruler the Sun, Venus, planet of both money and relationship, and Pluto, which signifies uncompromising truth, events have forced you to rethink arrangements, possibly overnight.

Virgo August 23 – September 22

The last thing you’re in the mood for is a discussion about the tendency of one particular individual to be careless about certain matters. Ordinarily it wouldn’t cause concern but, increasingly, you end up dealing with the details they ignore. If you can disentangle yourself, take over entirely. That’s really the only option.

Libra September 23 – October 22

If you’re feeling confused about what to think and, even more, say at the moment, that’s no surprise. While Mercury’s link with precise Saturn accents taking a tough approach, the tricky aspect between your ruler Venus and Uranus suggests compromise is best. Both are true, it just depends on the situation.

Scorpio October 23 – November 21

For ages you’ve been aware that, in your efforts to keep certain deeply personal matters to yourself, you’ve left those who’re closest to you wondering what you’re doing, pursuing and what’s on your mind. You need to tell them more. And, ideally before the communication planet Mercury meets your ruler Pluto, on the 24th.

Sagittarius November 22 – December 20

From your perspective, there’s no right or wrong way to make an important point. If something needs to be said, you’ll get it across in whatever way works. However, you’re dealing with somebody who insists there’s a strict formula for such discussions. In their world, maybe, but not in yours. Ignore them.

Capricorn December 21 – January 19

Life would be a lot easier if, in certain crucial situations, you could talk things through with others, then reach a final decision. But with so much in transition, it’s unlikely that even simple decisions will last for long. Regard whatever you organise as an experiment, one from which you’re learning each day.

Aquarius January 20 – February 17

If you were asked, a while ago, whether certain individuals actually enjoy upsetting others, you’d had laughed and said of course not. Yet recently you’re beginning to realise that there are those who genuinely like causing problems, and that’s what you’re facing. Dealing with them won’ be easy but it will be an education.

Pisces February 18 – March 19

Few things upset you more than knowing you must confront somebody who’s disappointed everybody. While the issue is straightforward, discussion won’t just clear the air, it will give the individual in question a chance to acknowledge the problems they’ve caused and, in some way, make up for them.
