IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY
A Mercury-Pluto link on your birthday suggests you will be attracted to questions and answers that go deeper than what most people might regard as “reality”. Just be careful you don’t get too close to people whose views are, to say the least, a bit extreme.
ARIES (March 21 – April 20):
Take what a friend tells you this weekend very seriously indeed. It may seem as if they are being unduly melodramatic but the planets warn they know things that you do not. Listen to their concerns – because they are your concerns too.
TAURUS (April 21 – May 21):
There are a lot of wild ideas flying about at the moment and there is a danger you could get caught up in the hysteria and start believing some of the things you hear. What happened to that famous Taurus common sense? Don’t lose your head this weekend.
GEMINI (May 22 – June 21):
Someone in a position of authority has been giving you a tough time of late but that’s okay because you’re a pretty tough cookie yourself. What they try to do over the next 48 hours won’t do you any favours, so be brave and reject it.
CANCER (June 22 – July 23):
Don’t waste your time and energy chasing after things you cannot have – and which probably would not be good for you if you got your hands on them. Apply your Cancer skills to something, or someone, more deserving of your attention.
LEO (July 24 – Aug. 23):
For some reason or other you appear to mistrust someone without the faintest idea why. Is your sixth sense trying to tell you something? Or have you merely got the wrong end of the stick? What happens this weekend will answer those questions.
VIRGO (Aug. 24 – Sept. 23):
If you find yourself locked in some kind of dispute this weekend neither you nor your opponent will want to back down. Somehow you need to find a point of agreement where your minds can meet. You may have to give ground – a little.
LIBRA (Sept. 24 – Oct. 23):
If you find yourself working on something that does not interest you much don’t try to wriggle your way out of it. Instead, resolve to do it to the best of your ability. It may not be much fun but it will win you some useful new friends.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24 – Nov. 22):
Anyone who expects you to compromise this weekend obviously has not had much experience of dealing with Scorpios. In your vocabulary the word “compromise” actually means “do it my way”. Refuse to back down and you’ll get what you want.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 – Dec. 21):
The current cosmic picture warns that you could easily overreact and start a fight over something that isn’t that important. If it happens, then fight to win – but a better strategy might be not to fight at all. What can you do to avoid confrontation?
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 – Jan. 20):
You won’t have any doubts about what you intend to do this weekend, even though everyone and their dog seems to be against you. You enjoy taking on challenges – the bigger the better – but even more than that you enjoy proving people wrong.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 – Feb. 19):
Your mind is incredibly sharp at the moment, which could be useful if you are looking to make some money because the planets suggest that a business proposition of some sort is just what your bank manager ordered. Really go for it over the next 48 hours.
PISCES (Feb. 20 – Mar. 20):
You will have no trouble making snap decisions this weekend, but will they be good decisions? That depends on how willing you are to listen to advice from people who have more experience than you. Use what they know to enrich yourself.
