ARIESÂ (March 21-April 19):Â An opposition from the moon suggests that youâ€™ll be feeling quite sensitive today and inclined to fight your corner when thereâ€™s really no need. A suggestion from someone close might set you on edge, but listen to what they have to say, and youâ€™ll realize that it makes perfect sense!
TAURUSÂ (April 20-May 20):Â Romance will still be tricky, and because there are several oppositions to the moon in your sign perking yourself up with a shopping bonanza wonâ€™t really help. However, youâ€™ll find that things get easier if you deal with what seems to be an emotional problem or miscommunication!
GEMINIÂ (May 21-June 20):Â Youâ€™re normally a very talkative and quick-witted sign, but today, thanks to the moon in Taurus, youâ€™re likely to find yourself somewhat tongue tied! The slight dip in your confidence levels wonâ€™t help either! Keeping a piece of clear quartz will help clear your mind!
CANCERÂ (June 21-July 22):Â Oh dear; several oppositions to your ruling planet, the moon, suggest that a friend could be the cause of some minor stress today, which will leave you feeling a little insecure! If you are feeling left out or neglected by someone then grab the bull by the horns and tactfully explain your thoughts on the matter!
LEOÂ (July 23-Aug 22):Â You could find that you need to curb your Leonine tendencies today. An inclination to take over is likely to lead to minor upsets; your intentions may be nothing but good, but there is a danger that someone will get the wrong end of the stick. Try and take more of a back seat today!
VIRGOÂ (Aug 23-Sept 22):Â You could find that youâ€™re in an uncharacteristically dithery mood today, thanks to the opposition from the moon! Donâ€™t worry too much though, and take any opportunity to kick back and relax. Try and postpone any important or pressing decisions until after midnight!
LIBRAÂ (Sept 23-Oct 22):Â Today is definitely a day to resist any temptation to spend; while money itself shouldnâ€™t be a problem youâ€™ll find that youâ€™re too easily persuaded to get the same old thing! Wait until the couple of challenging aspects have faded, when your impeccable sense of style returns!
SCORPIOÂ (Oct 23-Nov 21):Â If you are single and have your eye on someone, or have even just embarked on a new relationship you might want to lighten up a little today: the oppositions between the planets suggest youâ€™re trying too hard to please. Attached Scorpios should relax and chill out a little too!
SAGITTARIUSÂ (Nov 22-Dec 21):Â You are likely to be veering between two extremes today. Just like a few other signs the moonâ€™s oppositions will have you questioning which way to go over a certain emotional matter, but as one of the wisest signs youâ€™ll know, deep down, which is the best route!
CAPRICORNÂ (Dec 22-Jan 19):Â Oh dear; three challenging aspects to your ruling planet will have you getting in a flap very easily today. However the influence of Jupiter will help to ward off the effects of the moon; by tomorrow things should look a lot brighter!
AQUARIUSÂ (Jan 20-Feb 18):Â There could be a minor clash with an older family member today. A specific formation between the planets points to a little emotional discord for many of the signs, but in your case there is definitely a silver lining to look forward to in terms of romance!
PISCESÂ (Feb 19-March 20):Â The formation between the planets is causing a few signs some stress at the moment. For you this will emerge in the form of minor frustrations at home. It could be that someone is not listening to you or showing enough appreciation. However, a change in the way you approach this problem could be the answer.
FOR THOSE OF US BORN ON THIS DAY: Happy Birthday! The months ahead are likely to start on a positive note, with some welcome changes to your environment likely after the New Year. Whether this is a house move or redecorating your current home youâ€™ll certainly have an eye for what looks good, but you will need to stick to your budget! By the start of spring an opportunity for a vacation or a long distance journey is likely to add some excitement to your routine: if it does take it, because youâ€™ll be in the mood for yet more change. If you choose to stay at home youâ€™ll be in for an exciting time though, especially in terms of a slow-burning romance. The autumn will bring a new set of challenges in terms of work or school, since that particular house will be very strong. Just remember to reserve some time just for you!
CELEBRITY GOSSIP: Tilda Swinton may be in her fifties, but she still has the same photogenic appeal that she possessed at the height of her movie career! It should be no surprise then that she has been chosen to be the face of a major cosmetics companyâ€™s marketing drive. The planets suggest that this could also revitalise her acting career!
