CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Bonnie Raitt, Alfre Woodard, Morley Safer, Courtney Thorne-Smith, Mary Hart, Parker Posey, Jack Osbourne, Tara Reid, Leif Garrett, Patti Page.
ARIESÂ (March 21-April 19):Â You have had a rather hectic week, and today the planets are urging you to rest, relax, and recuperate from the heavy and recent demands of work or school. Youâ€™ll need to schedule in some time just for you, and try to temper those moments of irritability!
TAURUSÂ (April 20-May 20):Â You should continue to feel energized and ready to tackle anything, but you would benefit from some chilling out time! The planets are driving you to take on more work or more chores, but if you can resist the need to get everything perfect then youâ€™ll be able to enjoy a much more relaxed day!
GEMINIÂ (May 21-June 20):Â Minor communication problems will continue to cause some minor tensions. If yesterday you were a little too forthright, then today youâ€™ll seem to be contradicting yourself! Be careful what you say or promise, and keep it simple to avoid confusion and misunderstandings!
CANCERÂ (June 21-July 22):Â With several challenging aspects causing a certain degree of minor stress for a few signs you should brace yourself for a temporary, but unexpected and unwelcome increase in your current work load today. The one rainbow on the horizon is a boost in your love life!
LEOÂ (July 23-Aug 22):Â You will be able to enjoy an uncomplicated Saturday, so make the most of it, because tomorrow a significant planetary change means you wonâ€™t be able to forget about work or school so easily. Focus on romance and friendships for today!
VIRGOÂ (Aug 23-Sept 22):Â As one of the more practical and plainspoken signs you could find that you land yourself in a bit of a sticky situation. The moon will encourage you to exaggerate a matter or be a little boastful today, and much to your horror you could find that someone will take you up on your wild claims!
LIBRAÂ (Sept 23-Oct 22):Â As one of the few signs liable for a relatively stress-free day you should start planning the hours from the moment you wake. Friendships and social gatherings are particularly well- aspected, even if romance seems to cool a little; so grab the phone, Libra, and arrange a fun day with friends!
SCORPIOÂ (Oct 23-Nov 21):Â As promised the weekend is just going to get better and better, but you do have choices, Scorpio. The chance to make a few extra bucks will arise during the first part of the day, and an invitation out is likely during the second half, although it wonâ€™t be too difficult to have the best of both worlds today!
SAGITTARIUSÂ (Nov 22-Dec 21):Â You could find that today is almost the opposite of yesterday, in that you feel lethargic and rather apathetic! Given the hectic week youâ€™ve had no one could blame you for wanting to take it easy today, but the planets will help to fire you up again!
CAPRICORNÂ (Dec 22-Jan 19):Â As one of the few signs who can look forward to an entirely positive Saturday. Money is looking particularly strong, and if you havenâ€™t had the time or the inclination to visit the mall recently then todayâ€™s the day when you can shop till you drop! Take a friend and make a day of it, Capricorn!
AQUARIUSÂ (Jan 20-Feb 18):Â Romance is looking particularly well-aspected today, with one or two surprises in store! Any feelings that things have become a little predictable or even stale will lift today, thanks to an unexpected invitation. Any money worries should ease nicely as well!
PISCESÂ (Feb 19-March 20):Â You are likely to get the chance to do something that you really want to do: someone close to you â€“ a family member or a friend, could end up talking you out of it, even without meaning to. Your change of heart will be down to self doubt, so push those doubts aside!
FOR THOSE OF US BORN ON THIS DAY: Happy Birthday! The months ahead are likely to start on rather a materialistic note. Money will be no problem but you are likely to become a little too set in your ways when it comes to spending and style. The spring will see you being torn between the desire to do the right thing in terms of work or school, and doing the fun thing in terms of your personal life, but youâ€™ll need to tread the path of moderation! Late August will bring some challenging moments for everyone; for you itâ€™s your love- life, or lack of it that will be in need of some changes, especially if youâ€™ve got into a bit of a rut. Attached Scorpios might need to overhaul their general attitude to enable the positive changes that will take your relationship on a more meaningful level!
CELEBRITY GOSSIP: Damian Lewis found world-wide fame thanks to his role in the global hit, Homeland. However, he is now trying his luck with the movie-business and unfortunately the planets indicate that he may not have the boxâ€“office pull to make a success of this very different form of entertainment!
