(SATURDAY, 14 JANUARY 2017)
ARIES (March 21-April 20) – Do not sacrifice the future for a shortlived present gain. Instead, going slightly short now will greatly benefit you in the long run. If you honestly believe that you are on the right track, do not allow yourself to be persuaded by others to change course. TAURUS (April 21-May 20) – There will be some happy moments for you; savor them to the fullest and do not take them for granted. Do not allow yourself to be affected by what others think of what you are doing. Be swift but not to the point where you omit what should receive your attention. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) – Do always take good care of your health, but do not exaggerate the significance of some little aches and discomforts. What looked so simple will prove far more difficult than you thought but do not let that dissuade you; you are on the right track. CANCER (June 21-July 20) – Try to keep your expenditures within bounds; make sure you do not exceed your income. A tendency towards extremes should be opposed as far as possible. Do try to work hard and concentrate and then relax. If you are taking a course of pills make quite sure you do not take them twice over. LEO (July 21-Aug. 20) – Don’t be obstinate if differences of opinions should arise; be more flexible and diplomatic and you’ll manage to get your way. You should be keener to absorb what others are saying, less keen on making your point of view known. VIRGO (Aug 21-Sept. 22) – Something you have learned more as a simple hobby than for any specific reason will unexpectedly turn out to be of practical value. Make sure your partner does not feel left out of your consideration. Do not neglect an injury and take somewhat better care of your general state of health. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) – Today, you are hyper-sensitive and unsettled; try not to lose your self-control and beware of taking sudden decisions. If you are finding it difficult to make a choice, do not hesitate to seek assistance from those who may be more knowledgeable or experienced than you. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 22) – Something upon which you embarked a while ago can no longer be reversed, but you will be able to make important modifications. You are bound to succeed provided you do not attempt to do something beyond the limitations you have. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 20) – Little is to be gained by moaning about your unkind fate. Instead look on the bright side and redouble your efforts to change things for the better. There will be some tension and you should do all you can to relieve it – your mental and physical health must come first. CAPRICORN (Dec. 21-Jan. 19) – Try to organize your work so that you are engaged on a task that can be resumed where you left off. You will be able to combine business with holiday. However, if you try too hard you risk spoiling your holiday while doing little business. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) – Make sure you meet your commitments and obligations. Once you have done so, you will have time to deal with more personal problems. Do not be greedy and remember that a good deal has to be good for all. You will do well if you seek to do now what cannot be avoided anyway. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) – Less favorable influence will render you rather more irritable and dissatisfied. However that phase will not last long and you should try to look forward to brighter days. Nothing will come easily to you just now but that should not stop you from trying.
