Mercury forming an angle of 80 degrees with Mars, the year ahead is likely to give you mixed results. Watch for a tendency to become involved in power struggles and one-upmanship, and watch for asserting yourself defensively or explosively. You should make extra effort to respect and validate others when expressing what you need and want. Benefits come from cooperation this year. A more organized approach to money and business can work well for you now. You enjoy making long-term plans and learning about a variety of subjects. Always receptive to new ideas, you are absorbing a lot of information this year. There may be a break with a friend, but a new connection is indicated as well.

‘Forecast for Today’
Aries : (April 14 – May 14)
You may be the warrior, but the current planets urge you to lay down your sword. It is safe to show your softer side. Even if you’re tackling a weekend project, don’t make everything strictly business. Connect on a personal level and brandish your sense of humor. Reserve holidays for your nearest and dearest, be it with your immediate family or BFF.
Taurus : (May 15 – June 15)
Cupid’s aim is sharp today and his arrows could lead you to a refreshingly unique target. Bonus: This person will appreciate your unfiltered panache. Already attached? Bring more ingenuity into your date planning, even slipping off for an overnight in a new city. Collaborating on a creative project will also reinvigorate your bond—just remember what we said about working from a budget!
Colour: Jade green
Gemini : (June 16 – July 15)
You’ll be happiest at home, so why not invite your friends over for dinner? Besides, home setting also provides the necessary privacy to delve into sensitive matters, should you choose to go there. Let your inner wild child lead the way, and you’re sure to have a good time. In fact, trying to rein yourself in could cause frustration and inappropriate behavior.
Cancer : (July 16 – August 15)
To say you wear your heart on your sleeve would be an understatement. More like on a leopard print, disco era jumpsuit! But today, just don’t rush to gush. And during the workweek, your planets will flash you a yellow light as they flow into a tricky formation. You are never at a loss for a great idea, but don’t be so flippant about sharing your trade secrets.
Leo : (August 16 – September 15)
A competitor may be lurking in the ranks, someone who has designs on getting ahead but lacks your ingenuity. You could toss them the keys to the kingdom only to find them sticking their hands in your cookie jar—and setting up a profitable bakery with your recipe for success! Your open heartedness may be premature, but that’s just part of your charm.
Colour: Golden yellow
Virgo : (September 16 – October 15)
Your intellectual property is worth its weight in gold and until you’ve stamped your trademark on it, keep it on the down low. Listen to what people are saying—and also what they’re not. If something is not quite adding up, you need to do your research and investigation. From the boardroom to the bedroom, use the power of suspense to build cachet.
Libra : (October 16 – November 15)
Drop hints, dangle the carrot but make them work for it if they want more. Make sure, however, that you’re not getting hung up on the cat and mouse game. If someone keeps jerking your chain, take a huge step back. Odds are, they’ll come chasing after you. Under the current cosmic formation, it is easy to see people in their idealized form.
Colour: Steel grey
Scorpio : (November 16 – December 15)
No one is without flaws and demons. Instead of glossing over red flags, find out what’s really behind them. This could make for some fascinating conversation and even provide an opportunity to bond. That said, be careful about getting sucked into a sob story. You’re a little too skilled at playing the provider-rescuer role but people have to do their own adulting.
Sagittarius : (December 16 – January 13)
Try not to settle for “almost famous” when you could be at the top of the charts. If you are in a relationship, you may have some issues to hash out on the home front. It is advised to go easy on the spending when it comes to renovation and decor. That $50/yard wallpaper IS insanely beautiful but…priorities!
Colour: Deep blue
Capricorn : (January 14 – February 11)
A project you’ve been developing—possibly for months or even years could gain well-deserved props. The media might even hit you up for an interview or to be featured in a photo shoot. Don’t wait around for it though. Fire up your own shameless self-promotion by posting on social media and calling friends with connections. Get out and mingle with the cognoscenti to get your platform sandal in the door.
Colour: Pastel shades
Aquarius : (February 12 – March 13)
What about me? Today’s planets put the spotlight back on your personal needs. Instead of playing the proverbial sweeper for everyone else, you have the opportunity to sort and sift through which projects and opportunities hold the most personal appeal. Put others’ notions of success on the back burner. Not only is life so much sweeter when you’re acting from an empowered place, but time also flies.
Pisces : (March 14 – April 13)
A disagreement with a friend or acquaintance may annoy you today, but it’s minor and likely has its roots in feeling drained or dismissed. It’s a day of relative haste, so do take extra care. There can be some challenges getting the answers you need from family, or there can be frustrating decisions to make. Take extra care of your health.
