Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - Bazaar -


Jan­uary 21 – Fe­bru­ary 19 Hav­ing waited to feel val­ued and ap­pre­ci­ated by some dis­cern­ing in­di­vid­u­als, you’re about to be given pos­i­tive feed­back. This may en­cour­age you to take on more re­spon­si­bil­i­ties but avoid go­ing too far. You don’t want to look as though you’ve noth­ing bet­ter to do or that you’re happy to be treated as a ser­vant. Mantra of the month If courage is ten, nine is the abil­ity to es­cape.


Fe­bru­ary 20 – March 20 If dreams and am­bi­tions get the bet­ter of you, oth­ers will sug­gest you’re go­ing over the top. They mean well, but a Mars-Jupiter con­flict on Jan­uary 8 will leave you feel­ing like you’re un­der at­tack. Re­mem­ber, th­ese peo­ple have a valid point. Lis­ten and look at your­self ob­jec­tively. Mantra of the month The nut doesn’t let you see what tree it con­tains.


March 21 – April 20 When a loved one feels eclipsed by your grow­ing in­volve­ment in the wider world, re­main pa­tient and un­der­stand­ing. The Sun’s tus­sle with Mars on Jan­uary 3 is a sig­nal for you to have one quick, de­ci­sive dis­cus­sion so that the two of you can de­cide what’s best, and then move on. Mantra of the month Every­body loves a fool, but no­body wants one in the fam­ily.


April 21 – May 21 Travel and ad­ven­ture will be on your mind. But th­ese will have to wait while you in­ves­ti­gate in­trigu­ing work or fi­nan­cial op­por­tu­ni­ties that are crop­ping up. You mustn’t un­der­es­ti­mate the im­pact you can have within an area be­ing en­trusted to you by those in au­thor­ity. You’ve far more to gain than to lose. Mantra of the month Ac­cept that the one who loves you will one day make you weep.


May 22 – June 21 Some­one sug­gest­ing that the two of you pur­sue some­thing worth­while to­gether will sound con­vinc­ing. But be­fore you com­mit, you must dis­cuss all the prac­ti­cal­i­ties in­volved. Make sure you’re not short-chang­ing those who have as­sumed you’ll be spend­ing most of your time with them. You don’t want to ap­pear in­sin­cere. Mantra of the month When eat­ing fruit, think of who­ever planted the tree.


June 22 – July 23 As­pects of your pri­vate af­fairs might be scru­ti­nised by some­body who should know bet­ter. Try not to let a Sun-Jupiter op­po­si­tion on Jan­uary 5 en­cour­age you to get venge­ful. Tell your­self that it’s es­sen­tial for you to re­main dig­ni­fied and rise above neg­a­tive thoughts that gen­uinely do not ap­ply to you. Mantra of the month Bet­ter to lose a minute in your life than your life in a minute.


July 24 – Au­gust 23 Put ev­ery­thing you’ve got into re­spon­si­bil­i­ties that can­not be ig­nored any longer. But make time to re­mind some­one spe­cial that the two of you can en­joy much to­gether. Make short work of one par­tic­u­lar set of tasks, which you’ve al­ways as­sumed to be more oner­ous and chal­leng­ing than is ac­tu­ally the case. Mantra of the month Don’t speak un­less you can im­prove the si­lence.


Au­gust 24 – Septem­ber 23 As you weigh up the cost of some­thing in­dul­gent and pos­si­bly quite lux­u­ri­ous, you may won­der whether it’s worth it. But you must re­mem­ber you have sac­ri­ficed one or two things re­cently that should have been right­fully yours. So if you can af­ford to pamper your­self and some­one spe­cial, it will pay div­i­dends. Mantra of the month Age will not come call­ing on you alone.


Septem­ber 24 – Oc­to­ber 23 Ac­cept that you’ve been forced to ne­glect those you love or the place in which you feel at your best. And use Mer­cury’s tie-up with Venus to re­mind you of what mat­ters most to you in life. Be­ing con­sci­en­tious and keen to en­hance your rep­u­ta­tion is fine. But ask your­self: is the cost be­com­ing too great? Mantra of the month Learn to let go or risk get­ting dragged along.


Oc­to­ber 24 – Novem­ber 22 At last you can ex­press your views on re­cent de­vel­op­ments within the home or fam­ily. How­ever, ex­pect to be chal­lenged by cer­tain peo­ple – they’re hold­ing on to opin­ions you re­gard as re­dun­dant or out­dated. Still, you can’t just rail­road them into do­ing what­ever you say. Open, hon­est di­a­logue is vi­tal. Mantra of the month Don’t as­sume that thun­der is al­ways fol­lowed by rain.


Novem­ber 23 – De­cem­ber 21 In­stead of pussy­foot­ing around del­i­cate fi­nan­cial or per­sonal is­sues, con­front them head-on. And prove to those con­cerned that you’re happy to col­lab­o­rate in a way that will ben­e­fit every­body in­volved. Trust and trans­parency are ab­so­lute es­sen­tials. Any­one who ap­pears di­vi­sive should be side­lined from the word go. Mantra of the month Chal­lenge pre­con­cep­tions be­fore they chal­lenge you.
