Aries (Mar21/Apr20) Think up some strategies to boost your career. Meeting with an executive can have exciting results. If you want to change career horses, make a game plan. Going back to school, getting a license or attending a job fair will get the ball rolling. You can no longer afford to sit back and rest on your laurels. If you're going to progress, you need to take matters into your own hands. Buying a handsome interviewing suit will be a worthwhile investment. You've got to look your best.
Taurus (Apr21/May21) Make arrangements to go on a long distance trip. All last year you craved excitement and adventure. Unfortunately, you had your nose stuck to the grindstone. Now you have a great opportunity to escape to somewhere exotic. Do some research into discount airfares and hotel rates. You could find some terrific deals that will allow you to take an extended break. Fortunately, your boss seems amenable to letting you go on a leave of absence. Seize this opportunity while you can!
Gemini (May22/Jun21) It's necessary to be a little secretive, particularly when it comes to finances. If you get an extra sum of money, stay mum about it or people will come running looking for a handout. Normally, you have no problem sharing your good fortune with others. This time you've been longing to indulge your sensual desires. There's no shame in this. In fact, it's a healthy impulse. Treat yourself to something wonderful and luxurious that would usually be beyond your means.
Cancer (Jun22/Jul23) Working as part of a team will yield better results than trying to go it alone. You have good ideas, but aren't sure how to make practical use of them. That's where your partner will come in. Although they can be rather bossy at times, you can't help but admit they know what they’re talking about so give them the time and space to get busy. Of course, you need to ensure you get credit for your share of the project. Make sure everybody know it’s you and your work that has brought this success.
Leo (Jul24/Aug23) Getting specialised or technological knowledge will improve your employment prospects. As a general rule, you prefer to focus on the big picture. This has gotten you to a certain level, but now you're ready to move to higher ground. This requires getting a certificate or degree of some kind. Aligning yourself with a good teacher will help you gain expert status. Be willing to play second fiddle. This is difficult for a natural star like you, but it's an essential part of learning.
Virgo (Aug24/Sep23) Finding an outlet for your creative talent is critical to your happiness. You're always looking for ways to be helpful to others. Now it's time to serve your own needs. If that means relinquishing some of your household responsibilities or relaxing your standards, so be it. People who are used to your perfectionist tendencies may be shocked by your new attitude. What they don't realise is that you have bigger fish to fry. Keep an art project secret until it is finished.
Libra (Sep24/Oct23) Finding ways to spend more time at home is critical to your happiness. You're tired of commuting long distances and going on extended business trips. If this means finding a different job or working from home, then start making your plans now. Your family will be thrilled at your increased presence, although it may be necessary to alter your surroundings. Creating a home office that is separate from the main activity of the house will help you strike a healthy balance.
Scorpio (Oct24/Nov22) You will get fame and acclaim for your ideas. Normally, you prefer to sit in the shadows watching how things grow and develop, but now you're ready to take centre stage. Be ready to face off with a stubborn man who thinks his methods are superior to everyone else's By challenging his authority, you'll trigger a whole new chain of events that will save time, money and aggravation. Don't be surprised if you're offered a bonus or promotion as a result. You deserve it!
Sagittarius (Nov23/Dec21) It's time to sort out your finances, as dreary as that sounds. You've never been especially materialistic, which is admirable. Still, there are people relying on you for support. The simple act of getting your affairs in order can be of tremendous benefit to your nearest and dearest. Asking a money manager will give you a better sense of how you can get the best results from your labour. You have to admit, it would be nice to make your money stretch further so you can work less.
Capricorn (Dec22/Jan20) Taking a short trip will give your reputation an unexpected boost. Maybe you'll get a chance to show off your creative ability.

This is just the sort of ego boost you need. If you've been thinking of asking someone on a date, make your move this week. Your charms are well nigh irresistible!
Aquarius (Jan21/Feb19) It's important to trust your instincts when it comes to a creative project. Although it might seem weird, it is compelling. Who cares if it hasn't been tried before? Your initial attempts will be disappointing, but keep going. You'll learn something new with each try. A romantic or business partner will be very supportive so whenever you feel discouraged, turn to them for advice and encouragement. Their advice will be invaluable. It's nice to have someone in your corner for a change!
Pisces (Feb20/Mar20) You have a tendency to cut yourself off from the group when you become depressed. Resist this inclination now. Joining a group project will restore your self confidence.
