CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: John Fogerty, Carroll Baker, Kylie Minogue, Rudolph Giuliani, Gladys Knight, Madeleine Le Roux, Joseph Cross, Jesse Bradford.
ARIES (March 21-April 19): It is definitely a mixed day today: on the one hand friends are clearly supportive, but on the other it may feel as though an older family member is creating unnecessary tension. Similarly a work or school matter may appear daunting, but a slightly stubborn approach on your part will make it seem more so!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): The first half of the day offers more than the latter half. Glorious planetary influences in the morning might point towards a fun-filled or promising evening, but don’t be too dismayed if plans made early in the day become less possible as the day wears on. Apply the same logic to a work or school matter too!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): A makeover or image change is likely to be on your mind today, as you’ll suddenly find inspiration from a chance comment. You might be keen to go ultra stylish or designer-chic, but go easy; the moon’s influence is only temporary. Holding off will be the way to go!
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Heavy planetary influences could make this a heavy day, especially where romantic matters are concerned. Attached Cancerians shouldn’t attempt any serious or important heart-to- hearts with their significant other, while singles could find that hot dates soon become quite lukewarm!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): For you, the late afternoon brings a much easier time. However, the planets suggest that a slightly dismissive or overly confident attitude will need to be toned down. A healthy balance is what you should strive for today!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): A rather scattered, dreamy approach could descend today, making life for you and others around you that little bit harder! Aiming for a hundred percent is sometimes counter-productive, but knowing when to push a little more is not. Schedule some much needed recuperation time for this evening!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Troublesome planetary influences are likely to either create a stalemate situation or lead you down a proverbial dead-end over a personal matter. Don’t be too discouraged by this, though: rethink your usual approach to this particular problem – sometimes the answers are not what you expected them to be!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Like a couple of other signs you’ll find that the afternoon creates a less forgiving environment! A string of tricky influences will require careful negotiation today. It might be best not to speak your mind, because blunders made in the morning will be frowned upon by the afternoon!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Communications are likely to create a slight flashpoint today. Do make sure that you get your facts straight before reacting, because misguiding influences will cause all kinds of misunderstandings. If you feel that someone is opposing you, think again. Chances are that you’re being offered useful advice!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Think of today’s planetary influences as something of a mirage: fabulous influences in the morning might imbue you with plenty of the feel-good factor and might suggest a great romantic development, but the afternoon is likely to bring mixed signals and mixed messages!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You’re likely to be in the mood for some good, old-fashioned retail therapy today, but the unhelpful earth-water opposition will bring out an extravagant and therefore expensive inclination. Today is the day where you are most likely to purchase something that is either too costly or even downright pointless!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Today is the day where achievement turns into a minor burden: you may think that you are making amazing headway with a chore, task, or assignment, but the afternoon is the point where you are most likely to discover those annoying, but time-consuming mistakes. Take it slowly today!
FOR THOSE OF US BORN ON THIS DAY: Happy Birthday! The months ahead could start with a dip in your energy levels, but if it seems as though something is gearing you towards making certain changes at work or school, you should regard the blips as a beacon guiding you in the right direction. In July you are likely to experience some intensity and drama in matters of the heart, thanks to a surge of water-energy. You’ll be radiating charm as always, but you’ll be inclined to over- analyze every comment too! October sees work or school becoming an area in which your Aries confidence will be nicely tempered with a level of charisma, helping you on your way to success. However, December is a time when it’s out with the old and in with the new! The post New Year period starts quietly, but changes in the way you see someone are afoot!
CELEBRITY GOSSIP: Sam Smith is one of the most understated stars around, he lets his music speak for him and that seems to be paying off. Sam’s astrological chart tells us that there is significantly more success on the way for him in the coming year!
