IF IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY

While you’re by no means stubborn, when you believe in somebody, an existing arrangement or a vision for the future, you can be amazingly persistent, yet make it look easy. Ironically, this birthday’s about letting others know the effort you’re making and whether it’s because of the actual situation, its promise or, perhaps the people involved. The resulting discussions will strengthen your relationships with those who matter most in your life, at home or out in the world.

Aries March 20 – April 18

When you organised certain practical or professional arrangements, they weren’t just a relief, they eliminated a range of irritating delays. However, because of changes in the actual circumstances in question, these have now become a nuisance. The time has come to disentangle yourself, and as swiftly as you can.

Taurus April 19 – May 19

Tempting as it is to stick to existing plans or insist future arrangements be carried out as envisioned, you’re urged to adopt a more relaxed approach. With your ruler Venus moving into a new sign, the actual circumstances you’re dealing with are likely to change, possibly dramatically. The more flexible your plans, the better.

Gemini May 20 – June 20

Between the recent unsettling planetary activity and this weekend’s clash between your ruler Mercury and the unpredictable Uranus, there are bound to be tensions. However, these have been in the air for ages. That being the case, the issues you’re facing offer a timely opportunity to tackle and deal with these matters.

Cancer June 21 – July 21

As much of a relief as being able to finalise decisions about crucial arrangements would be, these really can’t be rushed. On the contrary, within a short while you’ll realise you’ve far more options than, initially, you imagined possible. While you can’t avoid making plans, you urged to ensure they’re flexible.

Leo July 22 – August 21

It’s not until you’re facing a situation, such as that currently confronting you, that you realise just how stubborn you can be. While, usually. That’s as asset, your insistence on doing things the way you have in mind, or at the time you’ve planned, could be causing you problems. At least consider other options.

Virgo August 22 – September 21

Every once in a while, a situation arises that forces you to view seemingly straightforward arrangements from a different, if not revolutionary, perspective. This is the case now, and with so much in transition, it’s true for a number of matters. Knowing that, expect arrangements to shift, possibly several times.

Libra September 22 – October 22

When asked recently what and, in some cases, who you’d put first, you said you rather not get caught up in rating anybody in this way, This is wise, not only because the individual in question is quoting others’ words but, also, your own views seem to shift, and with surprising frequency.

Scorpio October 23 – November 21

Over the coming week or so, there will be a series of powerful aspects to the planet of both innovation and disruption, Uranus. The good news is, this suggests you’ll find solutions, even for persistent and perplexing problems. Still, don’t be surprised if, in dealing with these, there’ll be a few shakeups, too.

Sagittarius November 22 – December 20

During periods of transition, such as this is, while some changes unfold easily and smoothly, others can be sudden and even seem worrying. Ironically, those are likely to turn out best. Since not everybody will agree, be prepared to discuss the nature and extent of the concerns that arise.

Capricorn December 21 – January 18

There’s no easy solution for the tensions you’re facing. For now, it’s best to say and do the minimum. While that might be out of character, this forces others to take responsibility for their end of the situations in question. Once they do, they’ll realise certain problems are theirs to deal with.

Aquarius January 19 – February 17

As an Aquarian, you have a talent for spotting the difference between what’s no more than a bad mood, and somebody who’s being unpleasant because they’re anxious. Those uptight feelings can be the result of all sorts of things. What’s most important is to spot those that can be dealt with, and relatively swiftly.

Pisces February 18 – March 19

If you’ve already noticed that even simple arrangements don’t last long, then you’ll realise there’s little point allowing that compulsive side of your nature to dominate the plans you’re making. On the contrary, you’re urged to do the minimum. Uncaring as this seems now, within days you’ll realise how wise it was.
