ARIES (Mar 21st - Apr 20th) This can be a time when you're touched by the suffering of others - be it those close by or other members of the global village.
The plight of animals can also concern you. Remember, a little bit of help is worth a lot of pity. If you can offer a hand, do, but don't forget that to care for others effectively you need to address your own wellbeing first of all.
TAURUS (Apr 21st - May 21st) Most professions rely on clear, concise actions. There's potential for a glitch today because you could be in an emotional muddle.
Even if you're not ‘employed' in the traditional sense, tasks may be hampered by fraught feelings. If so, try to accept this.
Admit you're not quite as objective as usual and be assured this vibe will soon pass, Taurus.
GEMINI (May 22nd - Jun 21st) Ever wondered about life and the universe? If we'd never had da Vinci, Galileo or Einstein we wouldn't have been inspired to gain their insights.
However, musing in this manner can lead to little more than a glazed expression. If you want answers, do concrete things to find them.
You mightn't produce a groundbreaking theory but you could learn something.
CANCER (Jun 22nd - Jul 23rd) The need for emotional stimulation can be a mixed blessing.
You can be profoundly empathetic with loved ones and as long as this doesn't become too much, then that's fine, but you could confuse desire with deep feelings.
Furthermore, exercise caution around joint finances - your money management skills may be a bit rusty.
LEO (Jul 24th - Aug 23rd) There are the good guys and then there are... shall we say, the not-so-good guys?
You might be a trusting soul who likes to see the best in people - a lovely trait to have, but don't allow others to use this as an opportunity for emotional blackmail.
If you feel you need some space, don't let anyone try to tie you down with an arch display or fake tears.
VIRGO (Aug 24th - Sep 23rd) Unlike the perception, most astrologers don't accept the notion of ‘luck'.
There are favourable times to do certain things, and you're entering such a scenario.
You could be feeling confident and want to make the most of everything life has to offer.
And as long as you don't get too sure of yourself, there's a good chance you can realise your dreams.
LIBRA (Sep 24th - Oct 23rd) If you're in a partnership, is it really that? Or are you seeing the situation through rose-coloured specs? Don't be deceived, be true to yourself.
At a loose end? Why not take the kids out to the park? If you don't have any, borrow a family member's or friend's.
They'll enjoy the break, and your inner child, the playful company - just don't hog the swings!
SCORPIO (Oct 24th - Nov 22nd) We might all aspire to have a family like The Waltons but most have a touch of The Simpsons about them, or indeed, The Addams Family! If you're rather sensitive now, you may find yourself absorbing the dynamic of your clan.
Yet it can be hard to express your thoughts and there's a risk of being misinterpreted. Try to make your meaning crystal-clear.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov 23rd - Dec 21st) Is your mobile phone in credit? Have you saved key emails? Check! This isn't necessarily the best time for communications.
Even if you're on the same wavelength as friends there can be a tendency for them to misunderstand your meaning.
Whilst mundane matters may be gathering speed, gremlins can soon cause chaos.
CAPRICORN (Dec 22nd - Jan 20th) Before you invest in that diamond mine on the Moon, stop.
Is this an opportunity for you to reap wealth or is a trickster pulling the wool over your eyes with a crafty email con? Not that you may need fraudsters to separate you from your funds; there's a suggestion that you can do that yourself.
Get back to Earth now or else you can return with a bump later on.
AQUARIUS (Jan 21st - Feb 19th) It's the actress Uma Thurman's birthday today, and like her you could be taking on many roles.
Naturally, Uma knows when she's acting and when she's being herself.
Can the same really be said about you? Is insecurity making you play a part rather than being yourself? The words of the children's author Dr Seuss chime, "There is no one alive who is you-er than you."
PISCES (Feb 20th - Mar 20th) If you're an artist or writer, the muse can be with you as your imagination sprouts wings and soars sky-high.
Do harness this and produce something special. Unfortunately, tasks requiring precision can be hampered by the same flights of fancy.
If you feel the need to get away from it all, and this is possible, you will return greatly refreshed.
Birthday Luck: Happy Birthday! Save as much cash as possible leading up to August.
There is plenty of energy for both work and play this year but you will already have realised that play costs money.
You have time to recoup finances before October when demands grow in this area.
