There is much to recommend in these stars, and especially if it is your birthday this week, welcome to a year in which you'll add to your bank of happiness and experience. And, if you have a special event in the diary, expect the occasion to be perfect, although this forecast may appear to be in doubt midweek.
Mercury-Pluto aspects tend to bring secrets into the open and suppressed feelings to the surface, so do your best not to take matters too personally: think storms and teacups. And if there is an unavoidable change to be made, do it without drama – by the weekend, you'll almost certainly see the advantages to the new status quo.
