YOUR STARS AQUARIUS | JAN 21 - FEB 19 The celestial atmosphere may feel like a big deal as far as a close relationship is concerned. You may have been feeling pressure on you to act in a certain way, or do things that you really don’t feel like doing. You could find yourself in a rebellious mood and refuse to cooperate. PISCES | FEB 20 - MAR 20 You may find that the thought of your usual daily routine seems to get to you, especially under the current position of the planets. The usual patterns of your love relationship may also seem to be confining and frustrating right now. ARIES | MAR 21 - APR 20 Today’s position of the planets gives you the chance to get a few things off your chest and to begin to breathe again as far as your current relationship is concerned. If you are not happy about the ways things have been going, and are beginning to feel that you have reached a limit beyond which you are no longer willing to go, then take heart. TAURUS | APR 21 - MAY 20 Social outings and occasions could yield some gems as far as one-to-one personal relationships are concerned. The astral configuration today may bring someone quite unique into your life, but don’t expect them to be anything like your average date. GEMINI | MAY 21 - JUNE 21 The celestial atmosphere today encourages you to listen to the drummer who strikes a different beat within you. Although you are very loyal to those with whom you have developed a close bond, you also have a tendency to hold on long past the time . CANCER | JUN 22 - JULY 22 You may feel like doing your own thing today, with the current planetary aspect. It is only too easy for life to get into a tedious routine that can sap anyone’s spirit, and also play havoc with our most precious relationships. If you suspect that this may be happening, take action now. LEO | JULY 23 - AUG 22 The current position of the planets may make room for a revelation concerning you and your partner (current or prospective). Take this chance today to talk about all things hidden, if you both feel that you can cope with it, and share your secrets with each other. VIRGO | AUG 23 - SEP 23 Use this opportunity to experiment with new ways of being with your love interest. The astral configuration encourages you to try out different activities, to go places you never usually go, and to find some way of bringing the unconventional into your lives on a more permanent basis. LIBRA | SEP 24 - OCT 23 The celestial atmosphere today may bring out the she-devil in you today, as you feel wickedly disposed to making sure you get that date with someone who has been an object of your desire for a while now. However, if you want to make your wish come true, don’t go about this in your usual way. SCORPIO | OCT 24 - NOV 22 If you find yourself feeling a little aloof and detached from your sweet heart today, you can blame it on the current planetary aspect. You dislike feeling tied down to anything, whether it be a routine or a relationship. SAGITTARIUS | NOV 23 - DEC 21 Today’s position of the planets may seem to be associated with some cracks that could appear in your close relationship, and yet this will only happen if you have been trying to conceal them without trying to bring about a healing. CAPRICORN | DEC 22 - JAN 20 If you really want something positive to happen today, then make sure you take the more unusual path to achieving it. Today’s astral configuration encourages unconventionality, especially in your relationships both at work and at home.
