The Hitavada - - PASTIME - By Jagjit Up­pal

ARIES (Mar 21-April 20)

You may be not be look­ing at the right di­rec­tion and in­flex­i­bly hold­ing on to a los­ing project. Bet­ter aban­don it and grab the of­fer that has been pro­posed by an ac­quain­tance. It will be a lu­cra­tive con­tract but speed will be of essence. If you have busi­ness con­tacts with some for­eign coun­tries you may re­ceive some in­quiries to which you will have to re­spond quickly.

CANCER (Jun 21-July 21)

Work­ing in co­op­er­a­tion with oth­ers will prove more ben­e­fi­cial than try­ing to go alone. If you are seek­ing a lead­er­ship role in your job and or­gan­i­sa­tion you must work as a team. Busi­ness peo­ple will come across a pro­posal that is worth con­sid­er­ing if it is re­lated to their line of trade. A fam­ily func­tion is likely that may bring about a mar­i­tal al­liance for a young­ster.

LI­BRA (Sept.22-Oct.22)

Fi­nan­cially you are do­ing well and some busi­ness deals will bring mod­est prof­its, which will need some home­work and a bit of run­ning about. You may take up some long term plan­ning for a new ven­ture or for ex­pan­sion of your ex­ist­ing unit by work­ing out com­plete de­tails. Rein­vest­ment of your funds can also be taken up and you may con­sult a fi­nancier if needed. CAPRI­CORN (Dec. 21-Jan. 19) If you are think­ing of start­ing your own ven­ture you will suc­ceed in get­ting the nec­es­sary funds and clear­ance to start your unit. There could be some ten­sion on the home front that you don’t seem to un­der­stand. Ap­par­ently there seem to be no rea­son for such an in­trigu­ing sit­u­a­tion. Wait for some time when au­to­mat­i­cally the sit­u­a­tion will be clear.

TAU­RUS (Apr 21-May 20)

Con­cen­trate on the as­sign­ment on hand and stop chas­ing new deals for it is your present work that has the po­ten­tial for growth. Chang­ing job at this junc­ture will prove retro and coun­ter­pro­duc­tive. If you re­ceive any last minute as­sign­ments on sub­jects in which you have a nat­u­ral flair be firm and de­mand your own price. Some of the ex­tra funds can be in­vested for a short term to be with­drawn at a good time.

LEO (July 22-Aug 21)

At work you may find it dif­fi­cult to get along with your co­work­ers. It is no use go­ing to the seniors who may have their own prob­lems. Use your ca­pac­ity to ad­just your­self to such con­di­tions. Con­cen­trate on your work and try to be nice to all with whom you have to deal. Your re­la­tion­ship with a large or­gan­i­sa­tion can im­prove and you can hope to make head­way. If plan­ning to buy a new house you may do so now.

SCOR­PIO (Oct. 23-Nov.21)

Con­cen­trate on your work without any thought of re­wards that will not only yield qual­ity re­sults but win you wide ac­co­lades. Busi­ness trips can prove pro­duc­tive, as you will build up re­la­tion­ships, which will be help­ful in fu­ture. You may meet a per­son of great charm and with an im­pres­sive per­son­al­ity. A keen de­sire to de­velop an in­ti­mate friend­ship may re­quire you to take the nec­es­sary ini­tia­tive.

AQUAR­IUS (Jan.20-Feb.18)

All the work you have in mind is ac­com­plished without any hitches. This will sur­prise you as it has taken less time than you re­served for. Even your ap­point­ment with the author­i­ties went smoothly and you found them sym­pa­thetic to help within their lim­i­ta­tions. You now need to plan your fu­ture strat­egy. It is bet­ter to seek coun­sel with an ac­quain­tance who may have ex­pe­ri­ence to help you.

GEM­INI (May 21-Jun20)

You will feel that you have a lot of com­mit­ments many things to do and a num­ber of pend­ing as­sign­ments. Some of them may be ur­gent and im­por­tant and even cru­cial. Re­main calm. It is not nec­es­sary that you have to do ev­ery­thing per­son­ally. Del­e­gate and dis­trib­ute. Take up things in which you ex­cel and you alone can do jus­tice. Some time man­age­ment tech­nique will help sig­nif­i­cantly.

VIRGO (Aug 22-Sept. 21)

The em­ployed do­ing very well in their job must not get lured by al­ter­na­tive of­fers from other or­gan­i­sa­tions. Mak­ing a change at this junc­ture will not prove ben­e­fi­cial in the long run for it is quite likely that the role be­ing prof­fered may work out to­tally dif­fer­ent from what may have been promised. Traders mak­ing profit in their cur­rent deals must cash in now. Lovers will get into a mi­nor tiff.

SAGIT­TAR­IUS (Nov.22-Dec.20)

If rou­tine work is go­ing through var­i­ous hur­dles do not strug­gle to set it right. Give it a break and re­think new strat­egy and af­ter a while you will find a method to re­solve your prob­lems ef­fort­lessly. Fi­nan­cial ben­e­fits ac­crue through fresh projects and you need to con­cen­trate on tak­ing ad­van­tage of new tech­nol­ogy that will help stream­line your work. A friend­ship may turn into a re­la­tion­ship.

PISCES (Feb.19-March 20)

If you con­tinue to work as per your plans noth­ing can stop you from achiev­ing your goal. Do not get swayed by oth­ers who may cast doubts about the method you em­ploy. Some­times it is un­ortho­dox strat­egy that can bring bet­ter re­sults. The em­ployed may have to face crit­i­cism of their work but the end re­sult will prove oth­ers wrong. You have a good pe­riod ahead.
