Q Can you see me buying a home in the near future? I’ve saved a sizeable deposit, but house prices just keep going up! LAURA, MELBOURNE, VIC. A Yes, I can! A large purchase looks likely for you in February or March next year, so keep a close eye on the market. Even if it’s not in your perfect location, I think you’ll love it. Keep an open mind, broaden your search parameters and remember, good things come in small packages. Q My teenage son is considering a career in the defence force, possibly in the communications area. Does this look like a good move for him?
JULIE, ROCKHAMPTON, QLD. A With his strong work ethic and his amazing eye for detail, your son would probably do well in any sector. Anything that involves technology or electronics should suit him nicely, so if the defence pathway appeals to him, it might be a good move. My only concern is that he could suffer from homesickness through the cooler months, but if his cohorts are a similar age, he should be fine. Good luck to him! Q I’ve been unemployed for a very long time, and each job I apply for is unsuccessful. Do you see any positive job opportunities coming up? JAMIE, SYDNEY NSW. A Staying positive and upbeat can be hard when Saturn squares your sun, but luckily, this stressful aspect is fading rapidly. The mid-november full moon eclipse could bring an ‘aha’ moment that leads
to a change of strategy. As summer approaches, you might even switch career paths or take on a job in a different sector. With Jupiter expanding your options, things could happen quickly!
