21 JANUARY – 19 FEBRUARY
In your determination to make a good impression on others, you might go charging into a challenging situation like a bull at a gate. Try not to let a Mars-Jupiter link convince you that the answer lies in brute force. Instead, rely on clever planning and strategic thinking to achieve what you think you deserve.
20 FEBRUARY – 20 MARCH
Relax and look differently at a journey or ambitious project which, until recently, you have perceived as difficult, if not impossible, to handle. An energy boost around 7 January will help convince you that you have everything required to reach the dizzy heights you’ve merely dreamt of in the past. Enjoy making it a reality.
21 MARCH – 20 APRIL
No matter how many times you might have promised yourself that you will no longer over-commit to more than you can comfortably manage, you will find one or two new challenges irresistible. That’s fine, provided you really are determined to reject other responsibilities that should suddenly seem rather less important than they once did.
21 APRIL – 21 MAY
For some time, you’ve refused to listen to an inner voice urging you to break away from a set-up that’s no longer relevant to the life you want. Bringing it to an end won’t be easy—these things never are. But deep down, you must know it’s time to explore unfamiliar territory and take risks.
22 DECEMBER – 20 JANUARY
Deal with a romantic or marital problem as swiftly and effectively as possible. You and the other person concerned should then be able to focus on ﬁnancial or property concerns, which could be made to work to the advantage of the two of you, provided you’re on the same side and want the same things.
22 MAY – 21 JUNE
Instead of dreading the idea of collaborating with others on a project, you should see it as an opportunity to achieve something worthwhile together. The Sun, Venus and Pluto are combining their energies as if to help ensure that you, especially, become decisive and clear-thinking, yet remain diplomatic.
22 JUNE – 23 JULY
As you strive to convince a loved one that it’s necessary to reassess some aspects of your relationship, you may be perceived as heavy-handed. It’s important to do more listening than talking with this person, who isn’t thinking as clearly as you are at the moment. You don’t have to provide all the answers single-handedly.
24 JULY – 23 AUGUST
Two Full Moons in January—one on the 2nd, the other on the 31st—will encourage you to use your sixth sense to teach you a great deal about what’s occurring in your private life. Those hoping to convince you that you’ve been handling a delicate situation rather badly should soon be eating their words.
24 AUGUST – 23 SEPTEMBER
Having steered clear of ongoing commitments that have had little appeal in the past, you’ll soon be drawn towards them in a fairly positive way. You’ll realise there’s much to be gained—on a personal or emotional level—by grappling with tasks that are challenging, but prove far more gratifying than you ever imagined.
24 SEPTEMBER – 23 OCTOBER
If you’re to score highly within a competitive field, think in terms of a slow burn rather than immediate results. Even when somebody chides you for taking your time, pace yourself because there’s more to be accomplished than you realise at first. Eventually, others will see the positive impact you’ve had, all round.
24 OCTOBER – 22 NOVEMBER
Not everyone likes the way you sometimes use shock tactics to achieve the results you want in your work or relationships. But you’re about to dream up an ingenious way of improving a set-up that no longer does anybody any favours. It’s essential to give adequate warning to those involved, rather than catch them unawares.
23 NOVEMBER – 21 DECEMBER
A practical problem will call for a creative, imaginative solution rather than the same old approach that’s been used—none too successfully—in the past. Stand up to anyone insisting that you stick to convention and let the Sun’s tussle with Uranus convince you it’s time to experiment with something new and different.
