Aquarius

January 20 - February 18

Social activities could be a lot of fun today but be careful you don’t overdo it and spend a large chunk of the weekend recovering. Moderation in everything is essential, so keep your desires in check and don’t let the party spirit sweep you away.

Pisces

February 19 - March 20

You could lose your cool over something today that on most other occasions would not bother you in the slightest. It’s likely that someone is deliberately winding you up because they want to see you get angry and make a mistake. Don’t fall for it.

Aries

March 21 - April 19

You are determined to be assertive and adventurous and to make use of the many opportunities now coming your way, but spare a thought for friends and family members who may not be as bullish about their prospects as you. What can you do to assist them?

Taurus

April 20 - May 20

If you can’t get what you want today there is every likelihood you will make up for it tomorrow, so keep believing that you are on the right track and keep acting as if you cannot possibly fail – and you won’t, at least over the longer-term.

Gemini

May 21 - June 20

It’s great that you are so enthusiastic about what you are doing but it’s unlikely that everyone you live and work with shares your positive outlook. It will pay you to take some time today to explain why they don’t need to be so negative. Life is still good.

Cancer

June 21 - July 22

It’s possible that you could lose patience with someone you work with today, simply because they don’t share your high standards in getting a job done. Let them know they need to up their game, or look for one more suited to their lesser talents.

Leo

July 23 - August 22

By all means be generous with your time and expertise but don’t be so generous that you end up exhausting yourself. Do you really want to end up doing everything for everyone else but nothing for yourself? A touch of selfishness might be no bad thing.

Virgo

August 23 - September 22

Don’t get so carried away with a money-making scheme that common sense goes out the window. If the rewards on offer are so high it’s because the risks are high too. Can you afford to lose what you are being asked to put in? If not, steer clear!

Libra

September 23 - October 22

You could fall head over heels for someone you meet today but the downside is they may not be right for you in the long-term. By all means have fun together, but if you are expecting the relationship to stand the test of time you may be disappointed.

Scorpio

October 23 - November 21

What you have to do today may be tiresome but you are advised to tackle the task with energy and enthusiasm – even if you have to fake it. Important people will take note of your professionalism, and something seriously good could come of it.

Sagittarius

November 22 - December 21

It might be wise not to make too many plans for today and over the weekend, because the planets suggest something unexpected is about to occur. Don’t worry, it won’t be the sort of unexpected event you would prefer to avoid – it will delight you!

Capricorn

December 22 - January 19

Squabbles of one sort or another are likely over the next 24 hours but however heated it gets at times you must keep a sense of perspective. In the greater scheme of things your petty differences are of little concern. Take a look at the world around you.
