ARIES (Mar 21st - Apr 20th) You could feel pragmatic, practical and placid due to a Grand Trine, which means that three planets have angled up in a particularly beneficial fashion. Perhaps things are so pleasant that you'll struggle to get motivated, which is unfortunate as steely Saturn has ended a retrograde. From now things can gather momentum, especially at work.
TAURUS (Apr 21st - May 21st) Luxury-loving Venus smiles on you and you can be easily swayed by her charms. Lazing on an elegant silky sofa propped up by plump velvet cushions could be just your cup of tea. Alternatively, if you can rise from any torpor, listening to marvellous music, attending a concert or playing an instrument can all appeal and rouse the senses.
GEMINI (May 22nd - Jun 21st) If you've tasks that require cartloads of concentration, clear thought and attention to detail, today can see you briskly complete them. Then you can begin to move on. If domestic duties have seemed stodgy since mid-December they should begin to progress. Equally, if you've been mired in the mud of the housing market, there's hope of a shift.
CANCER (Jun 22nd - Jul 23rd) If you've fancied travelling but nothing has materialised, and you're still looking wistfully at locations on the internet or leafing through holiday brochures, you might yet find yourself on the bus to the seaside, on a ferry or a plane to... well, you decide just where. Why? There's no longer a blockage in your travel or educational plans, Cancer.
LEO (Jul 24th - Aug 23rd) We know money doesn't make us actually happy, but if we can't be happy, let's at least be comfortably gloomy. So keep an eye out for a chance to gain in your income and make the most of any situation that develops. Perhaps you feel you don't want to put too much effort into improving your cash flow but don't miss a golden opportunity for progress!
VIRGO (Aug 24th - Sep 23rd) If your creative juices are bubbling and you're willing to commit yourself, you could gain some great rewards. OK, so The Tate Gallery might not be ringing you just yet, but you can still get pleasure from something you've created - be it a masterpiece of modern art, a well-knitted jumper or a carefully constructed bookcase or new shed!
LIBRA (Sep 24th - Oct 23rd) If since last December you've been feeling rather discouraged and it has seemed that for every step forwards, you've made another two back, don't get down in the dumps. Things should begin to progress and you can be sure the strength you've gained through this awkward period will benefit you in the longer term, Libra. Get ready... set... GO!
SCORPIO (Oct 24th - Nov 22nd) Intellectual pursuits seem securely in your realm. You can find yourself happily filling your mind with facts, puzzles or any form of brain-related activity. There's a lot to be said for this, after all, chess pieces don't answer back! Yet might you be using all this cerebral activity as a way to mask emotional responses? Could it be you feel a tad resentful?
SAGITTARIUS (Nov 23rd - Dec 21st) Have you undergone some major life changes, some of which may have been less than fun? What you've been experiencing is a removal of the old so the new could flourish. Since December things may have calmed down but left you drifting through the doldrums or treading water. This is likely to change if you can take a firm grip upon life's tiller.
CAPRICORN (Dec 22nd - Jan 20th) You may have energy, confidence and plenty of charisma but you can have too much of a good thing. The ancient Greeks believed in hubris. This suggests that false pride can be the cause of a downfall - and they wrote a number of plays about this. So if you don't want to be a Greek tragedy or a French Farce, do think before you act, Capricorn!
AQUARIUS (Jan 21st - Feb 19th) Ever dreamed of travelling to unusual and distant destinations - perhaps taking a ‘gap year' from studies or work to see the world? Maybe you like the idea of being a mature student and studying law, anthropology or theology. Did you write a book once but never got it published? Ambitions that once seemed ‘pie in the sky' can become works in progress.
PISCES (Feb 20th - Mar 20th) The legal and financial worlds move at their own pace and sometimes turbulently too. Saturn's been snoozing since December and this has resulted in any interests you may have in relation to law or investments shuffling along like a snail with a stone in its shoe. At last action is possible, but this window of opportunity does need capitalising upon.
Birthday Luck: Happy Birthday! Met someone special? When allowing someone to get really close to your heart you are only too aware of your sensitivity. Holding back will not help, so go with the flow. Nothing worth having emotionally comes without some risks
