IF IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY

Watching familiar elements of your life change, if not come undone, isn’t easy. Yet, you’ve often wondered how you could extricate yourself from certain of these arrangements. Judging by your birthday chart, events are about to give you a chance to conduct a major housecleaning. You’ll be examining what adds to your life. With some, you’ll need to say farewell. While this could be unexpectedly challenging, deep down it will be a relief.

Aries March 20 – April 18

Making progress can be challenging but there’s always the rewarding sense of achievement that comes with it. However, it’s easy to forget that in the process of moving ahead, certain elements of the past must be left behind. That’s certainly the case now. Let these go. You won’t regret it.

Taurus April 19 – May 19

Planning ahead may make life easier. However, with so much in transition, even the simplest of arrangements will probably need to change, and change again. Knowing that, ensure whatever you organise is flexible enough you can rethink things if necessary. As important, discuss those plans with others from the outset.

Gemini May 20 – June 20

Now that both the Sun and your ruler Mercury are in the most strategic portion of your chart, you’ll realise that you’re better off leaving as many decisions as possible to others. While, ordinarily, you enjoy debating various options and shaping plans, steering clear of these is by far the best choice.

Cancer June 21 – July 21

It may seem you’re being faced with one unexpected twist and turn after another. While no single change is worrying, they’re shaking up existing plans. Actually, that’s good, mostly because these events are linked to the unsettling but ultimately superb alliance between Saturn and Uranus, which is all about breakthroughs, on Friday.

Leo July 22 – August 21

While your pride, as a Leo, is behind your unique personal style it also accounts for your knack for turning even challenging situations into an adventure. But, even more, it can mean you refuse offers, such as those currently coming your way, that are in your best interests. Say yes. You won’t regret it.

Virgo August 22 – September 21

Although every sign is influenced by Friday’s link between Saturn and the planet of innovation and the unexpected, Uranus, you could profit most from it. True, at the time events could seem disruptive. But, in reality, they’re forcing you to break up familiar but ultimately restrictive ways of doing things.

Libra September 22 – October 22

Life would be great if, when exciting changes take place, existing arrangements could be easily reorganised or quietly undone. At the moment, however, things aren’t that straightforward. Not only are these changes exciting, they’re complicated, so causing difficulties that certain individuals are battling them. Say nothing and quietly proceed with your plans.

Scorpio October 23 – November 21

Giving up on longstanding plans isn’t easy, especially when you think of all the time, effort and analysis you invested in them. Still, with each passing day it’s increasingly clear there’s no way these can work out as you anticipated. Knowing that, the sooner you let them go, the better.

Sagittarius November 22 – December 20

Having been born under one of the most tolerant signs of the zodiac, you have a ‘live and let live’ philosophy. This suits you and allows you to accept, if not actually enjoy, the quirks of others. However, the behaviour of one particular individual is increasingly irritating. For now, say nothing.

Capricorn December 21 – January 18

As an earth sign, you’d never commit to even the simplest of plans without knowing what’s involved. However, now, during this week of sudden but also remarkable breakthroughs, events will force you to rethink plans and, even more, substantially alter your priorities. The more willing you are to take chances, the more you’ll benefit.

Aquarius January 19 – February 17

Nobody enjoys discussing new and especially innovative ideas more than you. However, certain individuals seem to have the impression that because you’ve been talking about these, you want to get involved. While you don’t, judging by the influence of this week’s events on your life and circumstances, you may have no choice.

Pisces February 18 – March 19

Some changes unfold slowly, enough they can be easily incorporated into existing arrangements. This week’s, however, are so dramatic and abrupt that they’re bound to result in a certain amount of chaos, at least in the short term. Actually, this is best, because you’ll feel free to do exactly as you please.
