TODAY’S MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE:
No one imagines that a symphony is supposed to improve in quality as it goes along, or that the whole object of playing it is to reach the finale. The point of music is discovered in every moment of playing and listening to it. It is the same, I feel, with the greater part of our lives, and if we are unduly absorbed in improving them we may forget altogether to live them. — Alan Watts
TODAY’S WISDOM FROM AROUND THE WORLD:
There is a pinch of the madman in every great man. — French Proverb
TODAY’S CHINESE PROVERB:
A weasel comes to say Happy New Year to the chickens.
FOR THOSE OF US BORN ON THIS DAY:
Happy Birthday! The months ahead are likely to start with a short break or trip to somewhere new, thanks to excellent planetary influences. The theme of travel and fun continues well into August, and although you might be tempted to put work or school on the back burner, this will lead to a rather heavy backlog in your workload in September. October looks like a superb time for some home improvements, but don’t go over budget. December sees a minor conflict between you and a loved one, while February is looking rather hectic, as you find ways to balance the key areas of your life with sometimes unreasonable demands from colleagues. June sees travel particularly well aspected, but July looks like the month where you’ll need to slow down and take stock.
CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY:
Famous people born on your birthday include: Tom Brady, Jay North, Martin Sheen, Tony Bennett, Anne Klein, Martha Stewart, James Hetfield
James Corden is still gaining popularity in the USA thanks to his top rated TV show. However, the planets also indicate that there may some unexpected financial issues on the way for James!

TAURUS DAILY HOROSCOPE | Apr 20 – May 20
A certain amount of self-regulation may be needed, possibly for much of the working week. There is a time and place for everything, including chores. Colleagues won’t thank you if you offload some of your share onto them. It’s a day to keep your work and your social life apart!
Today’s Numbers: 1, 5, 15, 26, 34, 43
GEMINI DAILY HOROSCOPE | May 21 – Jun 20
A choice between taking a risk and opting for the safer approach is likely to crop up at some point during the day. This choice may well become apparent on the emotional or friendship front. You don’t necessarily need to avoid impulsive decisions, but you do need to weigh up the options before deciding!
Today’s Numbers: 8, 14, 22, 27, 35, 41
CANCER DAILY HOROSCOPE | Jun 21 – Jul 22
Improving influences should kick the ball back into your court and put you in control. However, it’s possible that someone may apply some pressure. This distracting presence may require a tactful but firm approach if you’re to cash in on the excellent planetary vibes!
Today’s Numbers: 9, 16, 24, 32, 38, 46
LEO DAILY HOROSCOPE | Jul 23 – Aug 22
There’s a slight divide in the day: something that isn’t quite hunky- dory in the morning should gradually resolve itself towards the evening. If this is related to your financial situation then you might be in receipt of some welcome news. There’s certainly every indication that something is untangled!
Today’s Numbers: 6, 14, 16, 25, 31, 49
VIRGO DAILY HOROSCOPE | Aug 23 – Sep 22
Mixed influences are likely to have an overall beneficial effect on your day. You should find that you have a wider margin of error, which will allow for more flexibility. You can afford to take a minor risk, and communications should improve enough to clarify an ongoing, confusing matter!
Today’s Numbers: 4, 7, 13, 26, 32, 48
LIBRA DAILY HOROSCOPE | Sep 23 – Oct 22
It’s possible that a situation or even an opportunity will look far easier than it really is. Failure isn’t inevitable, but success is by no means guaranteed. Related problems could emerge from one easily- overlooked small problem, and the overall effect may well be extra work just to keep on track!
Today’s Numbers: 9, 14, 23, 27, 31, 49
SCORPIO DAILY HOROSCOPE | Oct 23 – Nov 21
Much improved influences should provide a breath of fresh air. Romance; friendships; fun; outings and jaunts are all on the near-horizon. Just be warned, though: if you try to brush aside an important chore/assignment today, it will crop up again, most likely just before the weekend!
Today’s Numbers: 2, 15, 24, 33, 36, 45
SAGITTARIUS DAILY HOROSCOPE | Nov 22 – Dec 21
Consistent strategies will pay dividends. Flittering from one thing to the next will only drain you. Maintain a steady pace. Recognize from the start that you can’t be in two places at once, and that you can’t do everything, no matter what someone may say. Use the evening to chill, rather than to battle on!
Today’s Numbers: 8, 17, 22, 28, 31, 49
CAPRICORN DAILY HOROSCOPE | Dec 22 – Jan 19
Improved influences may well be a little misleading. While romance and emotional matters are set to take off, you could find that you’re inclined to fix your sights on something that is perhaps best ignored for the time being. Ask yourself what you should be doing rather than what you’d prefer to do!
Today’s Numbers: 3, 7, 13, 25, 36, 44
AQUARIUS DAILY HOROSCOPE | Jan 20 – Feb 18
Receding influences nudge things along. A specific situation or even relationship that maybe has been under a little stress recently will start to show signs of improvement. What will really help is keeping demands to a minimum: today is not the day to start making demands!
Today’s Numbers: 7, 15, 22, 31, 43, 47
PISCES DAILY HOROSCOPE | Feb 19 – Mar 20
You’re probably in the mood to take it easy and enjoy a stress-free day. Although you’ll most likely get away with such an approach, you might want to consider using an AM/PM split to your advantage: while the evening enables fun, the daytime could see some good results with a little effort!
