Prospects if today is your birthday
A Mercury-Pluto conjunction on your birthday means that people in positions of authority will test you every step of the way. Stand your ground and refuse to be intimidated – and above all, make sure you always have hard facts and figures to back up your opinions.
Aries (March 21 – April 20):
You might be full of yourself at the moment, and with good reason, but take care that in your optimistic state of mind, you don’t do more than Aries can comfortably handle. Others will take advantage of you if they get the chance.
Taurus (April 21 – May 21):
Anyone foolish enough to believe they could come between you and your ambitions will learn the hard way to never let lesser mortals hold you back. Leave friends and colleagues in no doubt what will happen if they try.
Gemini (May 22 – June 21):
No matter how unfair you have been treated lately, you should not try to fight back. Your anger may be justified but it can also cause you more problems than you are in at the moment – and that is exactly what your opponents want.
Cancer (June 22 – July 23):
If you ran away from a problem today, it will come back to bother you again later in the week when you have more pressing matters to deal with, so roll up your sleeves and sort it out now so you can put it behind you once and for all.
Low Earth orbit (July 24 – August 23):
Even if someone annoys you past the point of no return today, you should remain calm and resist the urge to fight back. The planets warn that if you become aggressive now, even if justified, you will pay for it financially later.
Virgo (August 24 – September 23):
With Mars moving into your birth sign today, you’ll start to believe that all things are possible, which is great, but don’t try to do it all in one crazy rush. Set yourself goals that you can work towards step by step – it’s what you do best.
Libra (September 24 – October 23):
Did someone get it for you? Are they the forces trying to derail your ambitions? No, not again. The only thing you have to worry about today is your tendency to see the worst in situations that aren’t actually that big of a deal.
Scorpio (October 24 – November 22):
A project you’ve been working on for some time will get a boost over the next few days as you discover reserves of energy and inspiration you never knew existed. The most important thing is to believe in yourself and what you do.
Sagittarius (November 23 – December 21):
March moves into the career area of your chart today, making it easier for you to be forceful when dealing with colleagues, employers, and people in positions of authority. Don’t be too forceful though – reasonable cooperation makes everyone a winner.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 20):
You may be tempted to go to the top without realizing it for the next 24 hours and if you do then the consequences will not be to your liking. Also, realize that what is acceptable to you may not be acceptable to others.
Aquarius (January 21 – February 19):
As one of the “fixed” zodiac signs, you don’t often change your way of doing things, but it will pay you to be more flexible today. In other words, it can cost you quite a bit of money if you refuse to back up even an inch.
Pisces (February 20 – March 20):
Mars, planet of aggression, moves into the partnership zone of your chart today, so expect to be challenged by people who think you’ve had too much freedom lately. You will only keep this freedom if you are ready to fight for it.
