Today's birthday: You pride yourself on keeping your word. While this is a virtue, it has recently become a liability. Certain unscrupulous individuals have realised that you’ll deal with troublesome issues, even if they aren’t actually your responsibility. The trick to dealing with these people? When they ask for your advice, make it clear that this isn’t your job. Taking a hard line won’t be easy, but it’s better than bearing the burden for others’ problems. Aquarius: January 20-February 17 Deep down, you’re well aware certain individuals have good intentions. It’s just they have a talent for obscuring them with being awkward, and with bad timing, enough that they’ve managed to irritate both you and others Pisces: February 18-March 19 You’re often told that you need to put you and your interests first, but, when it comes to making plans or setting priorities, you struggle with exactly that. It’s no surprise. This is one of your biggest lessons. Aries: March 20-April 19 Some minor disagreements will be unexpected and, as you’ll soon discover, far more complicated than you first thought. Knowing this, resist the temptation to make quick work of them. Instead, tackle each in detail. Taurus: April 20-May 20 Currently, one particular individual is so determined to organise arrangements to suit themselves that your words make absolutely no difference. For now, say nothing. Gemini: May 21-June 20 At the moment, there’s a fine line between decisions that are urgent, and those that can wait until you’re better informed. However, others are unaware of this, and won’t know until you explain the facts, point by point. Cancer: June 21-July 22 You unthinkingly ignored certain ideas or offers, mostly because they were so different from anything you had in mind that they just didn’t make sense. However, within days, certain facts will come to light. Leo: July 23-August 22 Just when your vision of exciting plans was coming together, events are spoiling the fun. Actually, the real problem is that you’ve been confronted with practical realities. Virgo: August 23-September 22 Often, you’ll note and gently correct others’ errors without even thinking about it. Judging by the current mood, your efforts won’t necessarily be welcome. Libra: September 23-October 22 You have no choice but to talk things over with somebody who isn’t just egotistical, they truly believe they’re never wrong. Now you must discuss one particular error. Scorpio: October 23-November 21 While you have no fear of certain matters, with their potentially disruptive nature, you prefer to plan how and when they’ll be raised. The odds are good destiny will be orchestrating the timing of such matters. Sagittarius: November 22-December 21 Usually, your independent streak is admirable. But, over the coming days, it could trigger confusion, if not cause upset. Capricorn: December 22-January 19 While you are happy to debate contentious issues with those whose ideas you respect, somebody whose thinking you regard as unclear is another matter.
