Dis­cov­er­ing what you truly be­lieve in-fight­ing for it, even-is a high per­sonal pri­or­ity. Re­li­gion, law, pol­i­tics, travel and higher ed­u­ca­tion are some of the are­nas where this takes place. This is a time of test­ing your limits to see how far you can go. Learn­ing what makes peo­ple tick is ex­cit­ing and en­light­en­ing psy­cho­log­i­cal in­for­ma­tion. Your in­stinc­tive ori­en­ta­tion at this time is to­ward get­ting down to the es­sen­tials and start­ing over from scratch-heal­ing comes from de­stroy­ing the roots of a dis­tur­bance. An em­pha­sis on close re­la­tion­ships and a pre­oc­cu­pa­tion with ideas of fair­ness and har­mony are part and par­cel of the men­tal cy­cle you have just be­gun.

Can­cer (June 21-July 22)

You are pow­er­fully mo­ti­vated, even driven, and there is a ten­dency to be im­pul­sive. The ten­dency is to act first and ask ques­tions later. You have blind courage and sheer guts-a self-starter. Now that you have the idea, know that power strug­gles could oc­cur to­day. You will be able to over­come any of these dif­fi­cul­ties with your sense of aware­ness. You set a good ex­am­ple for oth­ers. A burst of cre­ativ­ity is strong this af­ter­noon and you en­joy putting your cre­ative skills and tal­ents to use. You will find a change of sub­ject, in­clud­ing oth­ers in the de­ci­sion mak­ing, praise, con­struc­tively work­ing with oth­ers are just what your depart­ment or di­vi­sion needs. You look to home and fam­ily

for giv­ing and re­ceiv­ing the most important sup­port and en­cour­age­ment.

Leo (July 23-Au­gust 22)

You have dis­cov­ered some ways to save money and now is the time you also give con­fi­dence to oth­ers. You will ben­e­fit from an­a­lyt­i­cal in­sights, get­ting to the heart of things-pen­e­trat­ing. You may be sought af­ter for your rec­om­men­da­tions re­gard­ing work is­sues. This af­ter­noon you may re­ceive a phone call from a young per­son in your fam­ily. You will be able to be un­der­stand­ing and han­dle what­ever is of im­por­tance to this youth. You are able to un­der­stand what is re­ally true in most any sit­u­a­tion and you have the words that will make a pos­i­tive dif­fer­ence. You are at your most prac­ti­cal and can deal with oth­ers with the ut­most re­spect. This is a time of much en­ergy and drive, per­fect for start­ing some­thing out or tak­ing care of busi­ness-very phys­i­cal too.

Virgo (Au­gust 23-Septem­ber 22)

The mak­ings for a bright and witty day are at hand. Your emo­tions or the emo­tions of oth­ers seem to fi­nally be in bal­ance and in sync with the group. At this time, you are not in­ter­ested in stir­ring the pot, as it were. This is a pe­riod of great men­tal ac­tiv­ity and height­ened com­mu­ni­ca­tion with oth­ers. In­tel­lec­tu­al­ism, the ex­change of ideas and the idea of be­ing smart as a fox are the things that have spe­cial ap­peal now. You could be most per­sua­sive with oth­ers and elo­quent in speech and com­mu­ni­ca­tion. You should be able to get your ideas across with ease. Your com­mu­ni­ca­tion skills are at a high-wa­ter mark. Gen­eral good feel­ings and a sense of sup­port and har­mony make this a happy time. Stress re­lief is what you give away to­day. You are in a strange mood this day-per­haps med­i­tat­ing. You sense things with the mind and un­der­stand that feel­ings are thoughts too. You en­joy mov­ing quickly through your day but you may also re­al­ize that there is more to life than rush­ing through each day at high speed. Po­etry, mu­sic and the arts in­ter­est you, as do psy­chol­ogy and the psy­che. You may de­cide to return to school for more ed­u­ca­tion. It is likely that you will be in some sort of so­cial work soon. It might be fun to take a job place­ment test at one of the com­mu­nity col­leges in your area; if it is not free, it will prob­a­bly be a nom­i­nal price. This evening you could meet a friend for din­ner. The stuff of gos­sip fas­ci­nates and calls to you from across the void. There is un­rest. New forms of cre­ativ­ity and self-ex­pres­sion can be seen now, par­tic­u­larly as new av­enues for ac­com­plish­ment be­come avail­able. This is very good, be­cause as you know, the last few days have seemed rather stress­ful. Com­plet­ing old, hard to end projects is a good ac­com­plish­ment. In­creased con­fi­dence and a more out­go­ing man­ner may be the key that opens many a new door in your ca­reer. Your sup­port sys­tem con­sists of friends and fam­ily and be­comes more se­cure now. While out this af­ter­noon, you may find your­self wait­ing in line and wish­ing you had a lit­tle mu­sic stream­ing into your ears. You may be­come in­ter­ested in meet­ing some of the peo­ple stand­ing in line with you. You set a pos­i­tive ex­am­ple for oth­ers to fol­low.

Aquarius (Jan­uary 20- Fe­bru­ary 18)

You have an en­hanced sense of per­sonal pos­si­bil­ity and po­ten­tial, as you work with oth­ers in a group project. You can see the abil­i­ties of oth­ers and gain ideas for your own ad­vance­ment in or out of the work­place. This is a time of pos­i­tive psy­cho­log­i­cal growth, which can lead to great per­sonal suc­cess if you fol­low through with it. Ev­ery­thing points to your tak­ing the ini­tia­tive in the lead­er­ship arena. You will find your­self com­ing up with all sorts of fa­vor­able ideas. This could mean a new ad­ver­tis­ing strat­egy or new sales ap­proach. At home, you ex­press your artis­tic tal­ents as you look to re­lieve the stresses of the day. Per­haps pot­tery or some form of paint­ing would be ben­e­fi­cial. You may gain recog­ni­tion soon for your artis­tic abil­i­ties.

Oth­ers usu­ally fol­low your lead­er­ship. You may have no­ticed that peo­ple fol­low your lead be­cause you have a way of work­ing ef­fi­ciently with ad­vanced ideas, new meth­ods or an eye for how things should be. This causes many peo­ple to come to you for an­swers or for some­thing sim­i­lar to en­light­en­ment. The peo­ple that are with you in the work­place are, again, around you to learn. If you want to ob­tain and ex­change in­for­ma­tion, you will need to move into dif­fer­ent sur­round­ings. You come up with plenty of new ideas for mak­ing the work you are do­ing run smoothly. Your in­stinc­tive ori­en­ta­tion at this time is to­ward get­ting down to busi­ness and com­plet­ing tasks. Your ca­reer goes

through important changes.
