Earth Sign Ruling planet: Mercury
As the year opens, you will experience benefits and rewards. The creative opportunities facing you now are extraordinary, mainly in the sense that you can bring a much greater feeling of spontaneity and individuality to your affairs. After a period of some confusion, you may feel that your romantic life is at last settling down. As your year draws to its close, your stance in at least one controversial area could be vindicated – satisfying indeed!
You appreciate comfort but once in a while, you give in to trends of the moment and throw on a crop top just so you can show off your firm belly. However, at the end of the day, you invest in tailoredto-fit clothes.
Work And Money
The extra dose of discipline the year brings you will be well worth it. You are gentle, inspiring and imaginative, which adds a sense of glamour to many events. Complex but soothing and stabilising planetary alignments will smooth out your emotional wrinkles and enable you to make long-term plans. Partners should see the wisdom of your ways by December – hopefully!
February kicks the year off to a flying start, especially if you have carefree or creative intentions. Appropriately enough, this is an ideal time to take a holiday! For those of you tied to the kitchen sink, your relationships with family members and people you live with will be the most important factor in your thinking from May to September. You know well enough by now that good relationships don’t happen by themselves but have to be worked at, and you’re fortunate that you’ll have the chance to bring constructive cooperation one step closer. In November, you’ll be indulging in repairs and renovations – but really what you’re doing is restoring relationships.
A powerful astrological configuration in February brings a big, positive shake-up. Keep calm, especially if you’re tempted to have a showdown with partners. You must realise that you are in control, and you have the power to put your affairs on a fresh footing. April and May could be the months for a complete emotional and psychic clear-out and you should look on this as purely positive, something to be made the most of. Loyal friends can only admire your determination, and hopefully they’ll back you with real support as well. If they don’t, you will set the agenda by August in any case.
