FOR THOSE OF US BORN ON THIS DAY:
Happy Birthday! Relationships may need lots of attention this year, as a number of planetary formations will highlight all the highs and lows, particularly in the fall. Some heart to heart conversations early in the year should help establish what it is you want and need. You’re likely to have a number of exciting ideas in the summer which could lead to a very profitable venture with a friend, but it will be important to keep in touch with all your friends this year so make sure that you find time for all the special people in your life. A very busy twelve months lies ahead of you, but it carries with it the chance for some wonderful new developments in the New Year that will have a lasting impact in your life.
CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY:
Shana Alexander, Hafez al-Assad, Rebecca Lobo, Elisabeth Shue, Ioan Gruffud, Matt Vogel, Carole Lombard, Britt Ekland, Amy Jo Johnson, Hafez Assad
Unusually perhaps, Kendall Jenner has been keeping a low profile lately. This is likely to change very soon as the planets tell us that she is hoping to make an important announcement in the very near future!
A reflective mood will pervade throughout the day, and you may find yourself dwelling on rather introspective matters, such as the way in which something is said, as opposed to what is said. Analyzing every little detail is not the way to go; instead pay attention to the whole thing!
Today’s Numbers: 2, 13, 15, 24, 33, 47
It’s a day to muddle through. There is a great deal of drive and determination in certain key areas of your life, but not in others. This may leave you feeling a little deflated, since you’ll be able to deal with tricky things relatively easily, while the easier things may well be harder than you assumed!
Today’s Numbers: 1, 4, 10, 16, 27, 39
You might experience a low level of frustration, especially if you want to get things done, because certain people around you may be rather inclined to concentrate on the interesting and ignore the boring. Trying to motivate others into doing their fair share of the dull stuff might need to be put on hold for the day!
Today’s Numbers: 7, 11, 24, 32, 41, 48
Your mood may well be a little chilly during the day time, although the evening should be a little warmer. However, don’t take this as the green-light to overdo the romance, otherwise you’ll send out some very mixed signals. Aim for consistency on the emotional front from start to finish!
Today’s Numbers: 6, 13, 17, 26, 33, 46
Strangely, you’re not going to be as innovative in your problem- solving as others. In fact, there’s a definite tendency to stick rigidly to the rules. This is not as bad as it sounds, if you plow your energies into the correct field, namely a practical or material matter all will be well!
Today’s Numbers: 1, 16, 25, 31, 43, 47
You’ll feel back to your normal, efficient, in-control self and any recent tensions on the practical/material front should seem to at least shrink by sundown. That said; make sure that you schedule a little time off this evening to do something you enjoy. Don’t try to over-extend your success rate!
Today’s Numbers: 2, 5, 14, 23, 37, 44
There’s a possible dilemma for you to resolve, although it can be sorted with a bit of smart thinking. You should get enough support, but only as long as you don’t allow a sense of power go straight to your head. If an older figure dispenses any useful advice, then do pay attention to it!
Today’s Numbers: 6, 12, 16, 24, 31, 46
You may notice the slower pace immediately, whether you’re working or not. It’s going to be a day where you may need to defer the creativity angle in order to pursue a more mundane course of action. It’s perhaps best to focus on the end results rather than on dazzling processes!
Today’s Numbers: 7, 16, 19, 26, 33, 49
The planets indicate that there may be a clash of interests or a direct choice to make. Some incoming information may seem to shed light on this choice/tension, but could actually complicate your decision. The planets suggest that it will mainly revolve around work/career matters!
Today’s Numbers: 1, 18, 24, 39, 42, 49
There’s a slight air of recklessness. You’re not usually known for being the flighty, quirky type, but airy influences could have you behaving out of character. The best time for making decisions and generating support will be in the evening, since the more reckless tactics could rebound before then!
Today’s Numbers: 3, 6, 12, 26, 37, 44
You are likely to have very high expectations on the work front, but you may lack the requisite high levels of emotional insight. Do watch your casual interactions, especially in the office environment. What you regard as a crisp address may be interpreted as a rather harsh one!
Today’s Numbers: 5, 11, 24, 27, 32, 47
You’re on the cusp of a bit of a change; a shift in the way you think is almost a certainty at some point in the next couple of days, but these things can’t be rushed. Don’t go looking for it; wait for it to come to you. In the meantime, try to react a little more selflessly to a romantic matter!
