24 August - 23 September
Your expansive thinking may be ridiculed by someone at this time, but you mustn’t let this deter you from thinking the best of yourself and what’s possible in your life. This is the handiwork of a retrograde Mercury in your 12th house so at first, you may not even be aware that this activity is going on. Having the courage of your convictions seems to be the message of the stars today. Use the power of Jupiter and Venus in your Sun sign now to give you the confidence that is possible with this planetary combination. On the other hand, there is no harm in listening to what other people have to say even if at, it seems like caustic criticism. There may be something constructive and what’s said which will ultimately help you make and save money.
24 September - 23 October
Some fascinating new personnel may end up working with you. Or you may even meet someone shortly an unexpected way. This will broaden your horizons and alert you to some of your deeper latent talents. It’s hard dealing with the hierarchy of life, but you realise that these structures are there for a reason. You need to assert yourself to climb the heights of this “pyramid” of life. You may find meaning by connecting with someone who is a kindred spirit during this period. Don’t allow yourself to be too serious as an upbeat attitude is more likely to attract your soulmate.
24 October - 22 November
There may be a misunderstanding over a course of action in a job opening. You may even think that it’s better to pass on the offer. Miscommunication is likely during this current cycle. If in doubt, ask questions because those bringing you any opportunity may also be sending mixed messages. Read between the lines if you know what’s good for you. There’s time for a breather if you take the opportunity presented, as this affords you time to restructure your thinking and your efforts. Unfortunately, playing the martyr may actually unravel all the work you’ve done.
23 November - 22 December
If you don’t afford yourself the time to relax and replenish your energy reserves, you’ll only make yourself tired and possibly even unwell. You may be feeling very drained of energy. Shortly, however, you’ll indeed feel a very significant uplift in your physical and mental vitality. Listen more carefully to your body signals as you can trust nature to steer you in the right direction. If you want a thoroughly fun distraction, then hanging out with a group of close-knit friends may be just what the doctor ordered. Time out will replenish you with much-needed energy.
23 December - 20 January
If you’re sloppy and not punctual interactions with others will be difficult. You could even find yourself having to justify some less than professional behaviour. You’re allowing family matters to interfere with professional obligations and this can be very telling on the perception others have of you. You are overemotional about trifling matters. Pay more attention to the finer details of life today and treat others as you’d like to be treated yourself. You may be tested on the knowledge of your chosen topic of expertise. It may be time to brush up on your skills.
21 January - 19 February
Unexpected romantic opportunities present themselves and they could be dynamic and very physical as well. You must, however, be careful to analyse, scrutinise and question anyone you feel drawn to at this time. Things can turn on the head of a dime so don’t assume that everything is hunky-dory. This is a time for exploration and experimentation in love. You may be imagining things about your work and future security that just aren’t there. You remember when you were a child and the shadows grew into shapes which terrified you at night? You’re doing exactly the same now.
20 February - 20 March
You have a strong drive to further your spiritual understanding and inner peace of mind, but may be obstructed by circumstances or the people you associate with. Be receptive to the experience others, but don’t allow your cynicism to determine what could otherwise turn out to be a long-term friendship and bigger and better things generally. Others offer great advice even if it doesn’t come packaged in the way you’d want. What others share now may be a bag of wisdom camouflaged to see if you have the spiritual insight to recognize that truth.
21 March - 20 April
Your relationships are confusing although exciting. You’ve had your fair share of challenges over the recent months, but this doesn’t mean you can’t look forward to things turning the corner now. When the truth is not clear it’s easy to fabricate a whole fantasy surrounding someone only to find out later that this is not what you want. Let clarity rule before letting your passion get the better of you. Furthermore, sometimes relationships become serious and the fun factor seems to be lacking. The universe is asking you to look at how you can better connect with the one you love.
21 April - 21 May
You’ll feel better about your working relationships over the next day or so. You’re completely in tune with your surroundings and the people that you hang out with although you may be second-guessing yourself and wondering whether or not your decisions are correct. Someone may shower you with flattery and make you feel as though you’re better than you thought you were. Just be careful you don’t allow your ego to trip you up. You still need to keep your mind on the job and hold other people accountable for their actions with demonstrable results.
22 May - 21 June
You can be productive and earn extra money at the moment but in the meanwhile, a shopping spree could make you feel better, especially if you have a little surplus cash. Go out and live for the moment and don’t worry about the consequences for now! Discovering new ways of earning money will also trigger a new creative spurt within you. You may be surprised to find some new avenues of earning cash being presented to you. This will, in turn, stimulate you to initiate new relationships that could result in good business partnerships. The door is wide open right now.
22 June - 23 July
You may have to deal with an adversary and you’ll spot that caustic smile a mile away. The strategy, however, will be to have allies who can help you save face. There will be opposition during this cycle and so, you may need to deal with strategies prior to the event even though it shouldn’t faze you too much. Smiling a lot will also throw your opposition off-guard. But this has to come from the heart and in the spirit of the feeling that nothing really can destroy you if you don’t allow other people’s negativities to get the better of you.
24 July - 23 August
Communications that have been held up recently are likely to come through, much to your satisfaction and relief, but perhaps not immediately. You, therefore, need to keep your wits about you and don’t take things for granted. Are you working for a hard-nosed employer? It won’t be easy to solve the problems confronting you, but the clear and concise expression will resolve any issues. You could be looking at a new style of communication including non-verbal cues. Understanding the motivation behind what is said is vitally important now, more than ever.
