You ap­pre­ci­ate the free­dom to ex­press your ideas in the work­place-oth­ers are usu­ally lis­ten­ing. You are good at lay­ing out a foun­da­tion for your­self and oth­ers to build upon. This could be any­thing from ar­chi­tec­tural plan­ning to out­lin­ing the out­come of a fic­tional story. Many peo­ple need an in­struc­tion book but you seem to in­tu­itively and cre­atively com­plete projects, fit things to­gether and cre­ate a pos­i­tive out­come to dif­fi­cult sit­u­a­tions. Your abil­ity to un­der­stand life in gen­eral makes you a good teacher. Your ca­pac­ity to make good de­ci­sions will be re­spected. Un­der­neath that hard­work­ing per­son is a very cu­ri­ous per­son. Now is the time to be ex­pres­sive and al­low th­ese good qual­i­ties to sur­face. Re­search is the next project on your list today.

Can­cer (June 21-July 22)

A new goal in the work­place seems to be a good idea, but you may won­der if you are on the right track. The goal is prob­a­bly a very good one, so keep the plan on pa­per for now and use the next few weeks to firm up your idea. Many peo­ple will be out of town just when you want to gain sup­port for your idea-pa­tience. Your in­nate abil­ity to un­der­stand and be sen­si­tive to oth­ers’ needs places you in the driver’s seat when it comes to com­mu­ni­cat­ing re­gard­ing groups or so­ci­ety in gen­eral. Know­ing what peo­ple re­ally want and need is the main key to your suc­cess. You may find your­self more in­volved in get­ting things and peo­ple or­ga­nized. Man­ag­ing a team is suc­cess­ful at

this time. Mak­ing your own gifts for the hol­i­day is a good idea this year; get busy!

Leo (July 23-Au­gust 22)

Con­ver­sa­tions at a meet­ing may take the road to a mis­un­der­stand­ing-care­ful. Per­haps rephras­ing your words or ask­ing an­other to rephrase his or her words would be help­ful to­ward a bet­ter un­der­stand­ing. You have a tal­ent for writ­ing and may be able to rise above the usu­ally over­worked ad depart­ment this par­tic­u­lar day. You are kind­hearted, un­der­stand­ing and sen­si­tive to the needs of oth­ers. This puts you in an ex­cel­lent po­si­tion to com­mu­ni­cate with all con­cerned. You find many ways to broaden your horizons this af­ter­noon. You may feel the need to in­volve your­self in many ar­eas of en­deavor, pos­si­bly ed­u­ca­tion, pol­i­tics, re­li­gion or law. Travel is also a sub­ject of at­trac­tion and you may de­cide the travel in­dus­try could use your cre­ative mind.

Virgo (Au­gust 23-Septem­ber 22)

Those in author­ity know of your abil­ity to man­age and di­rect other peo­ple. They could be seek­ing you out to take re­spon­si­bil­ity for a par­tic­u­lar job re­quir­ing your spe­cial tal­ents. It is a great time to be with oth­ers and to work to­gether. Now is a par­tic­u­larly good time for you to use your imag­i­na­tion and cre­ative abil­ity when it comes to ideas and think­ing. Your tal­ent for be­ing able to put your thoughts into words will al­low you to de­light and fas­ci­nate those around you. You may find a good book or movie for your pre­ferred en­ter­tain­ment this evening. You should find no prob­lem in be­ing able to en­joy your own life sit­u­a­tion, or feel es­pe­cially kind­hearted to­ward a friend or loved one. Ex­pect some nice com­pli­ments to come your way tonight. You are feel­ing reen­er­gized. You con­sider any dif­fi­cul­ties you might en­counter as an op­por­tu­nity to man­age and prob­lem-solve. You work to find the an­swer that will pull in the best for ev­ery­one. You look at life as an ad­ven­ture and you carry that ex­pres­sion with you wher­ever you go. It is no won­der peo­ple flock to youthey love that con­ta­gious, love of life mind­set that you ex­press so eas­ily. Today, an an­gry child and a dif­fi­cult cus­tomer give you the op­por­tu­nity to find the key of com­fort. Com­mu­ni­ca­tion with oth­ers is up­beat today as you seek to en­cour­age cus­tomers to buy your prod­uct. If you are voted the em­ployee of the month or year, it would only be a sur­prise to you! Ev­ery­one wants to cel­e­brate you this evening. Money matters are on your mind today. It is time to find ways to in­crease the in­come and you know you are worth it. It could also be that you re­al­ize a ca­reer change makes sense now. Do not wait for suc­cess to come to you-reach for it. Through your words and ideas, you will make a dif­fer­ence in other peo­ple’s lives. Psy­chi­a­try, po­etry or per­haps art may be a part of this. Be­cause of your elo­quence in speech and com­mu­ni­ca­tion, you should find oth­ers be­ing very re­spon­sive to what you have to say. A par­ent meet­ing or com­mu­nity get-to­gether will give you an op­por­tu­nity to cre­ate some pos­i­tive in­put to help in­crease the safety in a neigh­bor­hood. Con­di­tions are per­fect for self-ex­pres­sion, wher­ever you find your­self.

Aquarius (Jan­uary 20- Fe­bru­ary 18)

Spend some time in thought be­fore mak­ing your fi­nal de­ci­sion about an im­por­tant work is­sue. This is a time when it will pay for you to be very care­ful in mak­ing a de­ci­sion that might in­volve a change in di­rec­tion where your pro­fes­sional life is con­cerned. There could be a ten­dency to make choices too quickly. Later today, you help a friend to make a won­der­ful pre­sen­ta­tion at her school or com­mit­tee meet­ing. You teach young peo­ple to choose their friends with the idea that they and their friends in­ter­act with one an­other to help each other grow and learn. Some­one in your life is learn­ing a lot and they want to share new in­for­ma­tion with you. You have prob­a­bly heard it all be­fore-but lis­ten any­way-this per­son might soon be do­ing the same for you.

Today you may find your­self lec­tur­ing or judg­ing. Your thought­ful ap­pre­ci­a­tion for ideas and thoughts should make this an ex­cel­lent time to study. You may find your­self in the mid­dle of a very en­joy­able long con­ver­sa­tion, writ­ing a let­ter, or mak­ing that spe­cial phone call. You have an abun­dance of beau­ti­ful and har­mo­nious re­la­tion­ships in your life and may find your­self in a cre­ative-writ­ing class, house-de­sign class, fly­ing lessons, etc., with one or more of th­ese beau­ti­ful peo­ple. You re­quire and en­joy your close per­sonal re­la­tion­ships, to as­sure a well-rounded life style. Those around you will have no prob­lem in know­ing just where you are com­ing from, as you are quite force­ful and elo­quent in your abil­ity to com­mu­ni­cate.
