(20 February – 20 March)
Much as you might enjoy enhancing your private life, you’ll soon have to focus on something going on in the big wide world outside. You’ll earn respect by willingly making personal sacrifices for the sake of whatever needs doing. But you won’t want to do it too often. And you’ll have to know the outcome will be worthwhile.
(21 March – 20 April)
Others may challenge your optimistic take on commitments which they find daunting. You will be spurred on by the Sun challenging Jupiter and reminding you how you cannot bear to fail. That’s fine, but make sure your hopes of success are realistic. As long as you are not bashing your head against a brick wall, keep going.
(21 April – 21 May)
Once again, it will be left to you to organise partnership or business matters involving contracts or money changing hands. Rather than resent your position of responsibility, accept it and get on with whatever needs doing. Besides, you seem to be the one with the know-how. Earn yourself some kudos while you can.
(22 May – 21 June)
Stop fantasising about how others might feel when they hear of your latest triumph. Find the right voice and the appropriate words to explain, quite modestly, that you’re doing rather well. Moreover, giving the impression of feeling superior to those around you is sure to hinder rather than help your progress.
(22 June – 23 July)
Initially, you might not want to tell workmates or friends the details of an idea or project you are involved with. But hopefully, you will feel differently by 23 March when Saturn squares up to Jupiter. That’s when you’ll start
to see how much you will benefit from cooperation from experienced individuals.
(24 July – 23 August)
A partner or colleague will be keen to pursue a promising deal with you. But others will expect you to join them for fun and entertainment. Can you do both? Probably. But make sure you’re fully engaged at those key moments when you need to be business-like and efficient to avoid being accused of being irresponsible.
(24 August – 23 September)
Without being alarmist, you should discuss with a partner or loved one those aspects of your relationship that could be improved quite a lot. Point out that although a major overhaul isn’t necessary, there’s definitely room for some fine tuning. The two of you are not capitalising on all that this close bond or tie has to offer.
(24 September – 23 October)
It’s a mystery why you’ve found it impossible to admit you’ve been overworked and possibly underpaid. Early March, with Mercury and Mars changing signs, you’ll realise that you owe it to yourself to speak up. But just give out one strong message—loudly and clearly—lest you sound as though you are constantly complaining.
(24 October – 22 November)
You may be happy to take on extra responsibilities, but you would prefer that friends or workmates aren’t getting off the hook entirely as well.That’s why it’s important that you forget your inhibitions and raise concerns shared by you and those around you. You’ve been tolerant and silent for too long.
(23 November – 21 December)
With concerns on aspects of your home or family reaching a high, you’re about to admit that a rethink is necessary. A Solar Eclipse on 9 March could shake things up in such a way that you’ll find the courage to put fundamental changes in place. You won’t even stop to worry about what others might say. Nor should you.
(22 December – 20 January)
Focus on friends or relatives who have felt neglected recently. But also know that towards the end of the month, you will be keen to spend some time, money and effort on enhancing your home and its surroundings. Refuse to feel guilty for making yourself comfortable and secure. You deserve it. You’ve earned it.
(21 January – 19 February)
Questions will be raised about money—yours or somebody else’s. Rather than become defensive and feel like you’re under scrutiny, try to be as transparent as possible and share information. The trouble with being secretive is that others assume you have something to hide. And you don’t, do you?
