Your Year Ahead

Forget about wanting a quiet life – it won’t happen soon.  During the next year you’re swept along by high drama, with very little time for rest.  This turns out to be a mixed blessing.  On the one hand you’re encouraged to do what you do well, and such confidence can only be a positive.  But having this much licence gives your less responsible side free reign.  The trick lies in balancing the two.  That means dividing your time more evenly between work and play.  The only limiting factor is a potential financial hiccup in November.  But as long as you treat others fairly, your affairs should soar.  

Aries (March 21 – April 20)

Best Day: Tuesday 4th

Your lust for life can occasionally run over-budget and right now you’re probably picking up the tab for either your own – or someone else’s, enthusiasm.  And there’s nothing like financial woes to try a relationship.  At work, should unexpected changes lead to new territory, don’t fret.   Just don’t try to beat the system by taking shortcuts.

 

Taurus (April 21 – May 20)

Best Day:  Wednesday 5th

Your mind is on the move, and the change looks positive.  Basically, it comes down to trusting your instincts and acting on them quickly.  For many, this will mean new work or retraining. And why not take a chance on love?  After all, here’s a week when your natural charisma is all but irresistible.  There’s a direct link between business and pleasure.

 

Gemini (May 21 – June 21)

Best Day:  Friday 31st

This week’s focus is on teamwork, and by co-operating with others – you should achieve much more than usual.  Do your best to resolve long standing problems, but avoid putting others on a pedestal; remember, the higher they are – the further they have to fall.  A potential lover becomes a best friend instead.

 

Cancer (June 22 – July 22)

Best Day:  Sunday 2nd

Money and assets remain niggling needs, but there’s nothing like feeling the pinch to prompt ingenuity. Chances are you’ve been putting off the inevitable and not feeling good about it.  Result: the week throws you some lessons in prudence and building resources. The downside? Excessive focus on finances could rob romance of its enchantment.

 

Leo (July 23 – August 23)

Best Day:  Monday 3rd

More recently, work has seemed more like a war zone and you’re tired of petty politics. What’s more, you’re angry.  This week, however, encourages restraint.  That’s not to say that you should let others take you for granted – just don’t let them to hijack your hard work by losing your temper.  Stay calm, and you’ll be the one reaping the rewards.

 

Virgo (August 24 – September 22)

Best Day:  Saturday 1st

It’s a self-confident week, when you act on your own initiative without seeking approval elsewhere.  Work regains priority.  The planets also boost intellectual vigour and even if it does manifest in the form of an occasional challenge – it’s no drama.  You enjoy giving the old neurons a bit of a run.  When presented with different options, act quickly.

 

Libra (September 23 – October 23)

Best Day:  Sunday 2nd

Your mind’s racing and your pulse is pacing.  There are a million things to do, with each one vying for prime position.  Fortunately, this week is feeling energetic.  Sure, there’ll be some challenging moments – but you’re primed to set off a reaction that holds the promise of pleasure and prosperity.  If this brings in extra cash – spend it.  Guilt free.

 

Scorpio (October 24 – November 22)

Best Day: Friday 31st

Scorpios seldom suffer a loss of ambition but maybe it’s time to pass the baton to someone else for a while.  This is a week for catching up on things that aren’t all that important and for paying attention to more pleasurable desires.  Basically, the cosmos suggests a touch of hedonism, if that’s what it takes to balance you out.

 

Sagittarius (November 23 – December 21)

Best Day:  Tuesday 4th

Sagittarians take time this week to explore their psyches.  Ambitions are challenged as you wonder how much effort they’re really worth. You assume greater responsibility and therefore start to discard material matters that no longer appeal.  It’s not that life has lost its glow – quite the opposite, as your spiritual integrity shines through.  

 

Capricorn (December 22 – January 20) 

Best Day:  Thursday 6th

It’s ridiculous for you to get down on yourself when there are so many people who look up to you.  A quick glance at your astrological chart suggests that it’s overloaded emotions that are at fault.  There’s so much happening, Capricorn.  But people genuinely admire you and your work.  If they can see how great you are, why can’t you?

 

Aquarius (January 21 – February 18)

Best Day:  Saturday 1st

If on the attack, Aquarians fire first and ask questions later.  Sometimes, however, you can be just a tad too quick off the mark.  This week check all facts before marching into battle – as someone could be planning an ambush.  Faulty relationships may topple; new romance looks set to flourish – great news if you’re back on the singles scene.

 

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Best Day:  Monday 3rd

If I say there’s change on the way, promise not to run?  While things may flow a tad too swiftly for your liking, you’ll soon get the hang of it. Perhaps you’re being asked to retrain, or take an unexpected detour?   Whatever happens, know that the heavens are steering you in the right direction.  Follow your dreams, Pisces.  The time is right.
