ARIESÂ (March 21-April 19):Â Fun is very much the order of the day for you today. Even if you are at work or have a busy day at school there will still be plenty of time for some laughs. In the evening it looks set to be a whirlwind of socializing with friends and family. You are in the mood for playing some pranks so it looks like being a riot!
TAURUSÂ (April 20-May 20):Â Youâ€™re facing some challenges today from your ruling planet Venus. You will be in the mood to be fairly virtuous by catching up on some outstanding work or school assignments. However, someone very close to you will be in the mood for spending some special time together.
GEMINIÂ (May 21-June 20):Â It takes an awful lot to throw you off your usual steady self confident course in life. Your natural flexibility and quick wit allows you to deal with anything that comes your way. However, the indications are that a surprise will be revealed today that will stop even you in your tracks if only for a little while!
CANCERÂ (June 21-July 22):Â Romance continues to be very highly indicated in your chart and so you need to make sure that you capitalize on this opportunity to boost your love life. Today is very definitely a day for making a grand romantic gesture. Take that special someone out for a slap up meal and let them know just how you feel!
LEOÂ (July 23-Aug. 22):Â Your leadership skills will be coming to the fore today as some kind of organizational crisis looks set to hit your personal environment. While you will relish the chance to take charge and put everything back to normal, this is also an opportunity for you to develop your listening skills.
VIRGOÂ (Aug. 23-Sept. 22):Â A particularly challenging planetary aspect affects you today. This aspect will force you to reconsider your tendency to be too amenable to the needs and wants of others in your life. Today should be a moment when you make a conscious decision to put yourself first for a while!
LIBRAÂ (Sept. 23-Oct. 22):Â If there is any major job that you have been putting off for a while then today is the ideal day to finally get round to making a start. The influence of Mars in your sign is giving you enormous reserves of energy and it would be a real shame to let all that potential go to waste!
SCORPIOÂ (Oct. 23-Nov. 21):Â Finances have never been your strong point, as you feel much more at home with emotional issues than with budgeting. However, now is a great time to have a good look at your current money arrangements. A few small changes could lead to some major improvements in your spending ability.
SAGITTARIUSÂ (Nov. 22-Dec. 21):Â You like to think of yourself as one of the more easy going signs of the zodiac. While you are at your happiest when simply going with the flow this can sometimes lead to resentment that you then have to carry around inside. A powerful pattern today in the planets means now is the time to let that resentment out!
CAPRICORNÂ (Dec. 22-Jan. 19):Â Family is very important to you, but you are not always as good as you could be at keeping in touch with those who are close to you. Today the planets indicate that there is some important family news on the horizon. Dig out your address book and check in with your relatives to share in the happiness.
AQUARIUSÂ (Jan. 20-Feb. 18):Â Creativity is still very high on your agenda today. You will be feeling in a very spontaneous mood and will be dying to act on all those creative urges. However, the planets are telling you that you also have some serious work to do before you can indulge your more artistic side!
PISCESÂ (Feb. 19-March 20):Â There is a strong likelihood that you have been burying your head in the sand lately in relation to a romantic relationship. This is unlike you as usually you will be the first to discuss any issues that need to be resolved. Whatever the problem is needs to be aired today in order to avoid some conflict later on.
FOR THOSE OF US BORN ON THIS DAY: Happy Birthday! A challenging year lies ahead and at times it may feel as though the road ahead is strewn with obstacles.
However, if you face these challenges as learning opportunities by the end of the year you will have discovered an awful lot about yourself and your true capabilities.
Never forget that you have a lot of friends around you who will be only too willing to help you find your way. Watch the cash flow in December: it might seem obvious that youâ€™ll want to spend more at the festive season, but shop early for those bargain gifts to ease the financial pressure!
After the New year, your finances will pick up nicely again, as will your love-life, in the form of a new, budding and sweet romance!
CELEBRITY GOSSIP: Beyonce has been a global star for many years now, but unlike many of her contemporaries she is still producing interesting and innovative music.
