Pluto has been slowly passing through a key financial sector for years. It's likely that you're near the end of a long, complicated and drawn-out saga. What you hear today could energise you for the last few steps. Your involvement in a large, group project could take shape. It's even possible that you might be required to dress for a special role!

In the quest to win someone over, you could spend more time than usual thinking about where to eat. Someone wearing an item that reminds you of the sea or of fish is likely to tease you - but might also come up with a helpful suggestion. Your patience could be sorely stretched though. Irritation with someone who talks, walks or drives too fast could lead to an altercation.

Someone born, most likely, in the first few days of March, June or December may be teasing you. Some might argue that they're leading you on a merry dance. This might not be wholly unpleasant - though a recurrent property issues (and renovation) might require more decision-making than you feel able to do presently. Leo or Aquarius friends could provide excellent support.
