IF IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY

When you believe in somebody, an existing arrangement or a future vision, you can be amazingly persistent, and while making it look easy. Ironically, your birthday message is to let others know about the effort you’re making and why, that is, if it’s because of the actual situation, its promise or, perhaps the people involved. This, in turn, will strengthen your relationships with those who matter most in your life, at home or out in the world.

Aries March 20 – April 18

Your ruler Mars’ move into painstaking Virgo, a month ago, triggered a cycle that’s all about reviewing what works and, even more, what doesn’t. While you’ve dealt with numerous issues, those that remain are as tedious as they are complex. Still, they won’t vanish. The sooner you tackle them, the better.

Taurus April 19 – May 19

As a Taurus and somebody ruled by the charming Venus, you’d always rather find a peaceable way to work out even seriously contentious issues. However, there’s one situation where being polite will prevent certain individuals from speaking their mind. Encourage a heated exchange. It will definitely help clear the air.

Gemini May 20 – June 20

Only now are you discovering that somebody you’ve trusted was being dishonest if not just plain deceitful. Worse, they’re surprised you’re upset, because their intention was to be tactful, nothing more. Reflect on this. There are many times in the past when you’ve done the same, and for the same reason.

Cancer June 21 – July 21

Recently, it seems life has been all about duty and responsibility. With Jupiter, this week, and Mercury, next Tuesday, both moving into the most creative portion of your chart, it’s time to do something exciting. You may already have certain ideas in mind, but there are lots more yet to come.

Leo July 22 – August 21

Being a fire sign, you’re resilient by nature and, better yet, have a talent for bouncing back from even challenging situations. Consequently, while others may be intimated by certain obstacles, you’re not. That being the case, forget about contentious discussions. Instead, quietly proceed to do whatever needs to be done.

Virgo August 22 – September 21

Appealing as the idea of being able to consider certain plans as final, may be, at the moment, it’s unrealistic. With your ruler Mercury, the planet of opportunity, Jupiter and Venus all moving into a new sign of the zodiac within a very short time, even seemingly simple arrangements are bound to change, probably more than once.

Libra September 22 – October 22

Listening to the complaints of others is an art, and in some cases, shows how much thee individuals matter. Tempting as it is to respond to requests for advice, however, keep your thoughts to yourself. This may seem unkind. But even you, at your canniest, couldn’t possibly know enough to make wise suggestions.

Scorpio October 23 – November 21

There’s a difference between standing up to those you disagree with and allowing those views to turn into a battle. What’s more, because this week’s intense planetary activity could heighten your feelings about certain matters, which means everybody’s on edge, the less you say about any contentious issues, the better.

Sagittarius November 22 – December 20

From your perspective, as a quick thinking and fast moving fire sign, often plans are a starting point, and you make them conscious they’re bound to change. While during some periods these changes occur less often, at the moment they’ll be frequent. Knowing that, inform others most of what you’re organising is tentative.

Capricorn December 21 – January 18

While it’s true, many arguments are a waste of time, the clashes that arise now and over the next few days could prove to be surprisingly informative. The trick is focus on discovering what went wrong or the origin of misunderstandings. Once you’ve done that, you can focus on preventing them in the future.

Aquarius January 19 – February 17

Sometimes difficult situations are no more than that, troublesome dilemmas that need to be survived, then forgotten as swiftly as possible. However, those you’re currently facing are calling your attention to minor issues that, if acknowledged soon, can be caught and dealt with before they turn into major, if not serious, difficulties.

Pisces February 18 – March 19

This is a tricky week in an unsettled period. While you’ve a knack for dealing with times like this, others struggle, as is the case now. Tempting as it is to try to ease their way by reorganising things, it’s not only unwise, the individuals in question would neither notice nor appreciate your efforts.
