Stay on your toes and keep your cards close to your chest this month. It’s time to think twice about the information you give out to others and also the guidance people offer you. When it comes to finances, though, trust your gut and seize the many opportunities that will be available. Leos will also pay attention to their emotional and personal needs this month, so you may find yourself attracted to a potential partner who can provide them with the support they need. Avoid overworking and pamper yourself with SOTHYS Unifying Youth Serum, $169.

20 JAN TO 18 FEB 

You may feel a bit of frustration in the workplace, but you can stop feeling that way with some patience and understanding. You’re feeling extra sensitive so may overreact during this time – be careful if your partner is a fiery, argumentative sign like Leo or Scorpio or you guys will end up fighting. It’s not the best month to make any major financial decisions, so instead focus your energy on taking care of your physical and emotional health. Dressing for the weather and applying a concentrated ampoule like SOTHYS Oxygenating Essential Ampoules (7pcs per box), $89, can help.

August is a good month to tie up loose ends and break away from bad habits. It may be time to wrap up old projects and move on to greener pastures, especially for Pisces who have been looking for new careers. Meanwhile, make sure you avoid negative energies and bolster your health through a balanced diet. Controlling your temper and focusing on being more tactful will go a long way.

August will be a challenging month in terms of your career, love life and health. As you may be feeling more bored than usual, you may feel tempted to leave a long-time position and change up your career or relationship.

However, be careful when making big decisions, especially if dangerous activities are involved in any way. Treat yourself with SOTHYS Biological Skin Peeling, $82.

20 APR TO 20 MAY 

Your practical and reflective sides will come into play this month and you may find yourself torn between personal relationships and career goals. Focus on tackling problems in a diplomatic manner and keep your image squeaky clean. It’s also a good time to analyse your relationships deeply; but be careful when deciding if there are ties to be cut as you may require financial help from your loved ones. As August may be very mentally taxing, unwind with some distracting games to keep your mind occupied, or indulge in SOTHYS Nourishing Body Elixir – Cherry Blossom & Lotus Escape, $72.

August will put your people skills to the test as a shake-up in the workplace will require you to keep the team morale and your focus level high.

You’re at the top of your finance game, and you can maximise on that by keeping up to date with current issues and trends.
