The domineering Sun opposes impressionable Neptune today. Beware of falling victim to manipulation under this deceptive influence. People born under the signs Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces may be particularly vulnerable to emotional blackmail. When making decisions, concentrate on the facts. Don't let guilt undermine good judgment. In addition, a conjunction between Venus and Mars could pave the way for a passionate encounter. Getting engaged or married is strongly favored. People in committed relationships may want to plan romantic vacations. This is also a good time to launch a creative project. It will be necessary to sell a good idea to skeptics. Looking ahead, the stubborn Taurus Moon will make squares to both Venus and Mars. It may be a good time to defer to loved ones. Don't insist on doing things a certain way; try being flexible. If it's your birthday today, the year ahead could trigger a passionate romance. Beware of putting your partner on a pedestal. Accepting your mate's strengths and weaknesses is critical to the health of your bond.
