IF IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY
Your birthday chart is about freeing yourself of doubts or concerns you’ve struggled with for ages, if not your entire life. While you’re aware of some, others will surface only as events encourage you to confront these. Next, you’ll recognise certain doubts or anxieties you’ve assumed were normal can be challenged. Once you both understand and have the tools to deal with and define these, you’ll begin the process of saying a firm farewell.
Aries March 20 – April 18
While you’re not secretive, you sometimes get so involved in what you’re doing that you forget to update others, including those closest, on your activities. That’s the case at the moment. Make a point of chatting about your plans now, while there’s time to rethink joint arrangements and you’ll avoid unnecessary dramas.
Taurus April 19 – May 19
After weeks of nonstop action, some of it exciting and as much challenging, you’re only now catching up with things. Delightful as some changes are, it’s only just becoming clear that others will force a serious rethink of certain joint arrangements. Waste no time on reflection. Inform those involved right away.
Gemini May 20 – June 20
Certain matters always seem to provoke long and boring debates. Actually, the problem is those individuals who’re interested in them but, even more, love the sound of their own voices. While you can’t change their character or avoid the topics, you can organise those discussions when you’ve a pressing commitment shortly afterwards.
Cancer June 21 – July 21
Only days ago, somebody who’s usually easygoing by nature adopted a sudden, and non-negotiable, stance about matters you’ve regarded as of little significance. The individual in question was reacting to worrying developments beyond their control. Be patient. They’ll want to discuss this, and in detail, but probably not right away.
Leo July 22 – August 21
It wasn’t your intention to be secretive. On the contrary, you felt you were saying everything that needed to be said. The real issue is that certain individuals are anxious, and seeking reassurance. Do what you can. Even more important, show them ways they can lift their spirits themselves.
Virgo August 22 – September 21
In a number of situations, discussions need to be detailed yet conducted in as diplomatic a manner as possible. While you’re able to adopt this approach, certain matters are becoming more pressing by the day. Still, what you learn as a result of these cautious exchanges will be worth the wait.
Libra September 22 – October 22
Long ago you realised that certain individuals have a talent for making you feel guilty, then manipulating you into going along with their ideas or plans, even if you’ve reservations. This time, however, you really must stand your ground. It won’t be easy. But, looking back on it, you’ll be glad you did.
Scorpio October 23 – November 21
Don’t be surprised if those you’re working or, perhaps, living with completely misinterpret certain plans or projects. You may think you’ve told them, but your tendency to keep certain information to yourself has left the individuals in question in the dark. The solution? Review your ideas with them, point by point.
Sagittarius November 22 – December 20
Keeping plans to a minimum makes sense, at least to you. Still, with the Sun and Mercury all accenting the portion of your chart that has to do with long range planning, you’re urged to think things through. This is as much about lining up the facts as the arrangements you make.
Capricorn December 21 – January 18
Sooner or later you’re going to have to tackle certain increasingly complex issues. While they won’t go away, there’s also no rush, which suggests it’s worth taking time to examine all your options, including those you wouldn’t ordinarily take seriously. Once you learn more, you may decide they’re a good idea.
Aquarius January 19 – February 17
Being an air sign, you’re usually the first to spot the need for a rethink, if not major overhaul, of arrangements, both recent and long term. However, clear as you are about the need for an update, you’re no expert about the matters in question, so will have to work closely with somebody who is.
Pisces February 18 – March 19
It’s only now clear that you’ve been tiptoeing around crucial issues or pivotal facts, and for fear of upsetting one particular individual. Their so-called sensitivity is an act, a way of manipulating situations and others, as is the case now. Be frank, if not blunt. It will be best for everybody.
