IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: This year you enjoy relating on a one-on-one level. Though you love to socialize, you also appreciate the exchange that goes on just between two people. If you are single, you attract people from out of the blue and in odd situations. Others generally see you as being touchy and perhaps even somewhat volatile this year. You don’t tolerate the same behaviour from others, so ask yourself why you act this way. If you are attached, the two of you love going on getaways together. Make sure you plan plenty of them. LEO understands you perhaps better than you understand yourself!
Your imagination dominates most situations. Do not sit on your anger; otherwise, sarcasm and harsh words might fly out of your mouth. Only by having calm discussions and expressing a lot of caring can you patch up the situation. Tonight: Express your anger effectively.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
Decide to make New Year’s plans that involve having a party at your house. It’s OK if this is a last-minute decision. Invite your favourite neighbours and friends over to join in the fun. With good vibes around you, you’ll start the new year off on the right note. Tonight: Anchor in.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
Make calls early in the day. You could wonder where a situation ends and/or begins. Does it make that much of a difference? Stay present. You will find that you can enjoy yourself even in a difficult situation. Tonight: If you haven’t made your resolutions yet, do it now.
Help a friend let go of a difficult year. Your caring is appreciated by this person, but be careful, as a loved one could become jealous as a result. Remember your sweetie and how important your bond is. Tonight: Ring in the new year by hugging the one you love.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
You know what to do. You feel it in your bones as you go off to wish people a Happy New Year. A spontaneous decision to visit a friend in the early afternoon could set off the celebrations. Tonight: Nobody likes the snap, crackle and pop of a party more than you do!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Make it OK to decline an invitation to a celebration. You’ll perk up after having the right conversation with a friend. Your nurturing qualities start to emerge, and once more, you are beaming. A long-overdue chat with someone makes you smile. Tonight: Get into the moment.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Your smile tells everyone how you feel. You sense that the new year will be a good one, and you’re probably right. Where the parties are and where your friends are is where you want to be. Even with your sweetie, you still gravitate to crowds. Tonight: Cheer in the new year.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
You make a great leader, which is fortunate, as that is your role. Friends and acquaintances seem to be scattered until you set the mood. Be sure to share your New Year’s resolutions with someone who cares deeply. Tonight: Pop a bottle of bubbly at just the right moment.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Keep reaching out to someone at a distance. This person offers you a different perspective. Simply by speaking to him or her, you will be taken to a whole other intellectual realm. Detach, and you’ll see life through new eyes. Tonight: When New Year’s rolls in, think of a wish.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
You will be happiest relating to others individually. You might not be up for superficiality at this point. The intensity between you and a friend occupies your thoughts. Deal with an unexpected development on the home front. Tonight: Togetherness and New Year’s go together.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
You can sit back and relax. You might want to take a nap or clean out a drawer in order to start fresh for the new year. In any case, you won’t be alone for any length of time, as friends surround you. Tonight: Pop some bubbly, make resolutions and greet the new year in style.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
You might be stuck playing the role of host or hostess for the night, even if it’s not at your own celebration. Pick up an item you have wanted today. Start your new year off with something new. Do not swallow your anger. Tonight: Be a role model. Live it up!
