(Mar 21/Apr 20) IF you keep repressing and suppressing your emotions you could end up missing an exciting opportunity. If you think an arrangement is unfair, speak up. Someone in power will admire your courage and reward you. You should also make the powers-that-be aware of your aims and aspirations. If you want to get advanced training or go on a business trip, say so. You might think your desires are obvious, but nobody can read your mind. The more forthcoming you are, the greater your success.
(Apr 21/May 21) FRIENDS have too much influence over you. It’s time to break away from the crowd. Trying to keep up with status-oriented individuals is an expensive business. It’s better to save your hard earned cash for a rainy day. Working behind the scenes on an important project will keep you on your toes. You’ll have to pick up the pace. A slow, methodical approach will cause you to miss important deadlines. Force yourself to cut corners and make fast decisions, no matter how hard you might find it.
(May 22/Jun 21) A STRONG desire for achievement may be making you neglect a relationship. Get your priorities right. If you don’t give a loved one the respect and affection they deserve, your bond will weaken. The secret to your success is a happy home life. Without that, you can feel hopelessly adrift. You will have an opportunity to attend an exciting party. Let this be a place where you can put your admiration on display. Playing second fiddle to your best friend or romantic partner would be a good idea.
(Jun 22/Jul 23) RESIST the temptation to analyse the life out of a situation. You will fare much better if you use intuition as your guide. A challenging situation at work will eat into your leisure time. Taking on an additional responsibility will give you the chance to learn valuable skills. With this knowledge, you’ll be able to earn a promotion. Sometimes you have to make short-term sacrifices for the sake of larger goals. If you want to get ahead, put in some extra hours.
(Jul 24/Aug 23) CASH conflicts need to be dealt with. Paying off a debt should be your first order of business. If your business or romantic partner does not agree, you could be placed in a serious financial position. It may be best to separate your interests from theirs. The last thing you need is to be implicated in a lawsuit. If someone asks you to undersign a loan, don’t. Be prepared to resist some emotional manipulation. You must protect your interests, even at the risk of seeming ungenerous.
(Aug 24/Sep 23) A FRIEND or loved one is getting to be too dependent on you. It’s time to assert your independence. If you’ve always filled in their gaps for them, tell them they must do more for themselves. The sooner they get to grips with how certain jobs are done, the stronger your bond will become. You can always go back to your previous arrangement after both of you have learned to value the other’s role. If you enter into a business partnership, it will compromise your domestic life. Think twice before you sign.
(Sep 24/Oct 23) YOU might be rushing around from pillar to post but that doesn’t mean you can avoid the unpleasant realities of life. It’s important to respond to an official letter before the deadline passes. You might have to pay a penalty, serve on a jury or submit an application. Stop fretting and do what is expected. By breaking this chore down into small steps, it will seem less odious. Fortunately, a good friend or loving partner can cover for you while you’re busy. Accept their generous offer of help.
(Oct 24/Nov 22) DON’T stir up a drama for the fun of it. If you’re at a loose end, turn your attention to a favourite hobby or sport. This will keep your brain busy and stop you getting into trouble. A romantic disappointment could be weighing on your heart. Taking out any anger on those nearest and dearest to you will undermine your relationship. Your best course of action is to be gracious and move on. Don’t be surprised if you find love while out and about exercising. There’s nothing as irresistible as the glow of good health.
(Nov 23/Dec 21) YOUR relatives have an almost unconditional love for you. They always approve of your behaviour. Unfortunately, you might not always deserve such loyalty and affection. Be scrupulously fair and kindhearted and treat everyone with respect. If someone tries to make you look foolish, deal with them in a straightforward, no nonsense way. Playing mind games will reflect badly on you. A professional attitude will make you feel worthy of your family’s adoration.
(Dec22/Jan20) ALTHOUGH you long to be understood, it seems like an impossible goal. People mistake your hard working attitude for sanctimony. Instead of bending over backwards to prove them wrong, stay calm. Keep following your instincts. Eventually, the intelligent members of the group will realise your contributions are invaluable. Everyone else probably feels rather guilty because their efforts can’t match yours. Fortunately, your home life is very rewarding. Let your family pamper and spoil you.
(Jan21/Feb19) AS soon as money comes in, it goes right back out again. Part of the problem is your generosity. The next time someone asks for a loan, turn them down. Your first priority is to yourself. Protecting your finances is critical. Stop making excuses for someone who simply refuses to work. You’ve always had a soft heart. Express it through official charity work. Donate time and energy to a worthy cause. It’s no use trying to rescue somebody who is their own worst enemy.
(Feb20/Mar20) TRY not to get too caught up in minor problems. Helping those who are less fortunate can put your dilemmas in the proper perspective. You may not be able to get ahead at work, but it won’t always be the case. Carry on doing the best you can while looking for new opportunities. Eventually, a high profile job will come along that is just right. Keep the faith. You can earn extra money by selling handmade items online or at a prestigious boutique.
