FOR THOSE OF US BORN ON THIS DAY:
Happy Birthday! The months ahead will start with a rocky patch: a crisis of confidence and a need to distance yourself from your friends will soon fade when you are able to express your original ideas, although you will need to learn to put your foot down once in a while. Mid-year there could be a problem with communication, but if you’re willing to listen and receive this too can be overcome. It’s likely that a family member will disagree with a romantic choice you make; whether it’s a particular person or the way that you’re being the family member is likely to make their opinions known! You may think you know best, but there is always someone older and wiser! However, personal relationships will improve as you establish your independence throughout the twelve months, culminating in a boost at work or school
CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY:
Richard Dreyfuss, Kate Jackson, Winona Ryder, Leon Redbone, Joely Fisher, Rufus Sewell, Ben Foster, Bill Mauldin, Amit Paul
Keira Knightly is desperately looking for a new role that will give her the career boost that she is looking for. However, the planets suggest that a bigger distraction may interrupt her plans!
A reflective mood is likely to move in and it should feel as though this restrictive vibe will put you back in control. Decisions will certainly be easier; perhaps a little too easy, because the current vibe won’t be so great for those matters which require a little flexibility!
Today’s Numbers: 3, 17, 21, 25, 32, 47
It is possible that you’ll be presented with an evenly matched either/or choice. This quandary is likely to be related to an everyday issue. It could also be indirectly connected to a work- based relationship. Don’t rush a relatively important decision: sleep on it!
Today’s Numbers: 5, 14, 20, 26, 33, 41
There’s certainly the capacity to become something of a power sign. When things keep going wrong you’ll be able to breeze through. That said; because you’ll be a little scattered, you should maintain a check list. Keep on top of incoming emails, texts and messages!
Today’s Numbers: 9, 18, 21, 30, 37, 42
There’s a possible humorless vibe about the day. Someone may be expecting a little too much. Gratitude and appreciation may be in short supply too. Don’t over-invest your time and energy helping those who won’t help themselves. Sometimes dropping tactful hints won’t work!
Today’s Numbers: 3, 7, 12, 20, 39, 43
Don’t be surprised if you find that you want a little time and space to yourself. Since the prickly influences will hit a peak around lunch, it may be best to side-step pointless debate or dialogue, especially if you find that you’re going round in circles. You may need to make the first move, though!
Today’s Numbers: 6, 18, 20, 25, 32, 49
Domestic matters will dominate the day, and certain unresolved tensions could resurface. You may even find that someone is being a little distant. It’s not a day to try and take charge: you may well need to refrain from directing other people’s lives and decisions!
Today’s Numbers: 8, 10, 12, 24, 33, 47
You’ll need to tread carefully, or you could find that you ruffle some feathers unnecessarily with a slightly selfish vibe. Everyone gets them from time to time, but you can do much to offset this by checking other people’s opinions and feelings every now and then!
Today’s Numbers: 6, 13, 22, 39, 42, 44
If someone has been a bit hard on you recently, or hasn’t taken on your point of view then the slightly critical planetary line up will correct some of that, but not all of it. However, it’s definitely a day to appreciate the positives rather than focus too much on what hasn’t happened!
Today’s Numbers: 3, 7, 10, 21, 30, 49
A surge of earth energy should pave the way for a fairly undemanding day. That said; you may find that the process of decision making is slower than normal; this won’t impact too severely, except when it comes to a possibly selfish individual. You may not feel like giving way either!
Today’s Numbers: 5, 11, 24, 27, 31, 41
You might need to observe a rather fine line when delivering some much needed clarity. While taking the softly-softly approach is unlikely to work; being overly direct may not produce the result you’re after. It’s a day to adjust your method according to the responses you get!
Today’s Numbers: 2, 19, 22, 37, 39, 46
Don’t feel too bad if you decide you really need a bit of time- out, because as with a couple of other signs this isn’t likely to be one of your more sparkling days, and similarly, spending a little quality time enjoying more gentle pursuits will provide the relaxing atmosphere you need!
Today’s Numbers: 8, 15, 26, 37, 38, 42
Shifting influences may keep you on your toes, since it is highly likely that certain relationships will be a little high- maintenance. You may find that you’ll have little time to yourself as you try to keep everyone happy and some people might even be quite hard to please!
