January 21 – February 19 Talks may break down or travel plans could be disrupted but, even so, you must continue to pursue a goal that’s been denied to you in the past. You might even be better off if you’re forced to act alone, especially if you’ve been allied to somebody whose commitment has been somewhat half-hearted. Mantra of the month By being pliable and soft, you can become hard and strong.
February 20 – March 20 News of a breakthrough or development that might benefit you and others would obviously be welcome. The eventual pay-off might appeal enormously but don’t underestimate the need to have someone you trust implicitly by your side. If you decide to take advantage of the offer, establish first who will offer support. Mantra of the month Better to see the face than to hear the name.
March 21 – April 20 Work closely with someone you admire and plan an exciting venture. But do not procrastinate, because around the 24th you’ll get caught up in future planning that will require you to commit to something of a professional or business nature. You’ll need every spare moment if you’re to take full advantage of it. Mantra of the month Dawn does not come twice to awaken any of us. April 21 – May 21 Arranging your personal finances differently will help ease conflict between yourself and certain others. You’ll have a great deal to show for the multiple changes you’ve made around December 17. It will be by no coincidence that you will notice improvements on an intensely personal level as well. Mantra of the month Judge your success by the sacrifices you had to make in order to get it.
May 22 – June 21 A relational matter needs to be clarified. Promise yourself that between the New Moon on December 3 and the Full Moon in your sign two weeks later you’ll raise even the most awkward issues and persist until they’re resolved. Refuse to feel guilty if tears flow or tempers flare. Something has to change. Mantra of the month Focus less on what people think of you, more on what you think of yourself.
June 22 – July 23 Others need to indulge themselves occasionally, as do you. But one particular occasion or event mustn’t lead to behaviour that tarnishes your reputation. Be mindful of the need to be seen as squeaky clean, especially if you’re hoping to move up in the world. It’s a pity, but mud sticks, even on the naive. Mantra of the month Believe what you see and lay aside what you’re told.
July 24 – August 23 People may expect you to add something creative or highly original to a situation they cannot mastermind themselves. Flattering comments might convince you that you can achieve the near impossible. But with Mercury in conflict with Neptune on December 6, it is better to under-promise and be realitistic. Mantra of the month The entire world may rest on the tip of the tongue.
August 24 – September 23 Look forward to bringing work or other projects to completion around mid-December. But then promise yourself a break. Battling against hold-ups or delays that were of somebody else’s making will be more of a strain than you realise. But rather than feel angry or vengeful, move on and perhaps cut ties permanently. Mantra of the month If a situation cannot be changed, try changing the way you look at it.
September 24 – October 23 Your low morale will enjoy a confidence boost around December 7. Those with great influence will very soon realise that the contribution you could be making has been grossly underestimated. Let them come up with a good offer that meets your needs and also does a tremendous amount for you. Mantra of the month Be just before you are generous.
October 24 – November 22 Those who are afraid that you’re taking on too many responsibilities don’t realise what you gain from the situation. Expect encouraging news around December 10 when Mercury is allied to Uranus. You will impress others by displaying new skills and resources. Just don’t spoil it by letting success go to your head. Mantra of the month The fruit of timidity is neither gain nor loss.
