22 DECEMBER – 20 JANUARY
In the past, you may have felt too shy to push yourself forward in a particular setting or around certain people. In January, you may attempt something risky to impress someone. Listen to those who insist you can be innovative without going to extremes.
23 NOVEMBER – 21 DECEMBER
You’ve had to juggle money-related or career matters lately, but everything should be back on an even keel by now. You’ll realise that you have to be more proactive in various situations. Rather than berate yourself, it would be better just to get started.
21 JANUARY – 19 FEBRUARY
Fear of failure may have kept you from suggesting ways that loved ones could help you enhance your surroundings. Remind others that you’re putting far more into an arrangement than you’re getting out of it.
20 FEBRUARY – 20 MARCH
You may decide to reveal a secret hope or ambition to someone who’s unlikely to think that it’s too daring or outlandish. In January, a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity will come your way. Seize it, but also reassure those close to you that you won’t abandon them in the process.
21 MARCH – 20 APRIL
You may feel extra pressure in an area in which you have responsibilities. While you can handle it, be realistic about what can be achieved. Financial woes will come to an end, allowing you to focus on issues involving family.
21 APRIL – 21 MAY
Others may want to contribute to a project, but crowdfunding won’t be for you. The only practical way forward is to finance it yourself. Speak with someone like-minded about an ambitious plan that never got off the ground.
22 MAY – 21 JUNE
Before pooling resources in a joint venture that seems promising, make sure all checks and balances are in place. Discuss any misgivings you may have about the set-up with someone sane and sensible, and you’ll find that things are perfectly manageable
22 JUNE – 23 JULY
While you’ll honour ongoing commitments, you’ll also have to deal with a relationship that has been neglected. In January, you and your partner will need to air out your differences if you want to move ahead together in the relationship.
24 JULY – 23 AUGUST Refuse to take too seriously a burden that others foist upon you because they think you’re the best person for the job. Let someone who’s been there for you know how much you appreciate the support.
24 AUGUST – 23 SEPTEMBER
Romantic, escapist pursuits will appeal, but don’t be tempted to spend more than you can afford. Though you may have felt awkward expressing yourself in the past, in January, you’ll enter a phase in which you’ll be both candid and comfortable.
24 SEPTEMBER – 23 OCTOBER
A long-term arrangement may make you feel a bit claustrophobic. Taking a few steps back, even for a short while, can help relieve the tension enormously. Stop waiting for the perfect moment to act on a property or financial matter.
24 OCTOBER – 22 NOVEMBER
Money talk may prove infuriating, especially if you’re subjected to the views of those who know little about the subject. Stay cool and deftly steer the conversation to other topics. Creative ideas will be on your mind. Ground them in reality before confiding in anyone.
