TUESDAY JANUARY 5, 2016
ARIES March 21-April 20 **
Mercury squares Mars, which brings out your tendency to use words as weapons. Cool down Rams! It doesn’t take much time to blurt out something hurtful – but it takes a lot longer to repair the damage afterwards.
TAURUS April 21-May 21 ***
The planets increase creativity and your desire to be surrounded by beauty, peace and tranquillity. So link up with friends who make your heart sing – but don’t be deluded by a smooth-talking acquaintance.
GEMINI May 22-June 21 **
It will be very easy to put your foot firmly in your mouth today Twins, as you blurt out something completely inappropriate. And it will take some quick thinking – and talking – to get things back on track again.
CANCER June 22-July 23 ***
Whether you are old or young, proactive Mars motivates you to express your creative side. Be inspired by birthday great, actress Diane Keaton “I want to keep expressing myself until I’m not alive.”
LEO July 24-Aug 23 ***
When it comes to loved ones, try nurturing them rather than being bossy. Your leadership skills will shine brightly Lions, as long as you put the needs of others first – and think before you speak.
VIRGO Aug 24-Sep 23 **
Resist the urge to criticise others today Virgo – no matter how ‘constructive’ it is. You’ll get a lot further – especially with housemates and work colleagues – if you employ praise and encouragement instead.
LIBRA Sep 24-Oct 23 **
A troubled child, teenager or close friend may be in an argumentative mood today so it will take your considerable diplomatic skills to keep things humming along harmoniously. Good luck Libra!
SCORPIO Oct 24-Nov 22 **
It will be difficult to connect with loved ones on an emotional level today. And, the more demanding you are, the more they’ll distance themselves. So strive to be a super-sensitive Scorpio.
SAGITTARIUS Nov 23-Dec 21 **
You’re in the mood to defend your Sagittarian ideas but avoid getting up on your high horse and offending others in the process. Take a chill pill and do some vigorous physical exercise instead!
CAPRICORN Dec 22-Jan 20 **
When it comes to work, business or financial matters, resist the urge to be uncharacteristically rash today Capricorn. You want to strike while the iron is hot but are you seeing the full picture?
AQUARIUS Jan 21-Feb 19 ***
Impulsive words or impetuous actions could land you in hot water today Aquarius – especially at work. If you think things through before you speak and act, it will save you from some messy moments!
PISCES Feb 20-March 20 **
Perceptive Pisces – today’s stars encourage volunteer work, creative projects and spiritual pursuits. But – when it comes to a personal matter or a professional issue – are you being totally unrealistic?
The Moon’s in Scorpio, which intensifies emotions.
You have a prodigious talent for bouncing back from problems. 2016 is the year to be more productive and less complacent.
