Aries (March 20 – April 20)

Hey Aries, check your ego at the door.  You want to share what you know but you might be preaching to the choir or even to those who might not really care.  Sometimes, if you just listen to what others have to say you may just pick up a trick or two.  Digest those tricks and then you can start on the road of gaining control of your situation.  Also, one needs to understand one’s audience, be they one’s friends, neutral, or one’s enemies.  Relationships will be the driving force this month and put the focus on enhancing your business with that.

THEME OF THE YEAR , Nobody can take your power and it is time to show the world what you can do.

Taurus (April 20 – May 21)

This is time for self-reflection.  I’m not talking about staring at your reflection like Narcissus did in admiration.  However, if you’re going to look in the mirror ask yourself if you like what you see.  Figure out what makes you tick because you might let things out that you don’t want to be out.  It’s hard to take back words once they are out.  Let me tell you how to use that energy instead – wit.  You will have a quick mind this month so let your ideas and thoughts flow because if you can convert quick thinking and ideas into money, you’ll be set.

THEME OF THE YEAR , Aim high, learn much but don’t let radical concepts throw you for a loop.

Gemini (May 21 – June 21)

Time to get yourself out of the smog of the busy city life?  Okay, I’m not necessarily talking about the big city congestion but it could just mean finding a quiet space so you can quiet your mind.  Examine what your trigger points are and make sure you bring that Zen attitude with you when you get into the thick of things this month.  Look for guidance from old friends or even from elder friends.  Don’t take them for granted as far as they are coming out to give you guidance that if you pay attention can keep you on the straight and narrow.

THEME OF THE YEAR , Look at what others are doing but put your effort into what you need to achieve.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

In life, we have some choices we can make and then there are the ones that are chosen for us.  Either way, what better way to deal those choices than closing your eyes and listening to your dreams?  The deep wells of our minds hold our true purpose.  If you want to focus on your purpose and the rewards that you want to achieve, they will be made available if you tap into your inner power.  Sorry if I’m sounding like Yoda with slightly better grammar but seriously if you focus on this next month then you have the ability to pull everything together.

THEME OF THE YEAR , Do not give your power to others and seek to be stronger and more creative.

Pisces is a double-bodied sign: two fishes?

Leo (July 22 – August 23)

You can use intellectual thought to set up a shield of protection all around you and you can rationalise your way out of a paper bag but what you really need to do is to set yourself free and experience life.  I would caution you against things that might be addictive, no matter what your vice is.  Don’t think superstar status can help you get through things because it will complicate things.  Try to break free of what you think people want you to be.  Follow your instincts and make the right deals to ensure the future you want to experience.

THEME OF THE YEAR , You have something to prove and you’re going need to make it happen.

Virgo (August 23 – September 23)

The world is a big place and while you don’t have to get to every corner, it would be good to broaden your horizon.  Why do people travel?  Because they want to experience different foods, places and experiences.  One thing about sightseeing is that you get to go home to familiarity.  However, if you are conscious of things you can bring what you see home with you and enhance your life. No, you don’t have to go to Timbuktu or anything like that but what would be good is if you implement the good things you see in life and remove the bad.  Learn from others.

THEME OF THE YEAR , Time to break the mould you have set for yourself. Explore, engage and learn.

Libra (September 23 – October 23)

Libras are known as the fence sitters as they weigh out all options and look at both sides of the matter.  That’s great but expect to be called on to make a judgment call.  You might be presented with an odd choice or options.  Park your past judgments and make the call based on the present situation.  Some of your challenges might be coming from a boss or a difficult customer, as you will be confronted with defending your position.  Draw on the inner Libra but do it quickly and stick by your decision.  You will see the results in the next month.

THEME OF THE YEAR , Remember that endings are necessary in order for there to be a new beginning.

 Scorpio (October 23 – November 22)

Getting down to the nitty-gritty detail side of things will open you up to larger horizons in the future.  Things are generally looking up for you and if you listen to the counsel of those close to you, your life will begin to open up sooner.  Dialogue is always good but don’t forget to light things up with a song or two.  Whether you’re singing “The Flintstones” walking down the street or breaking into an operatic sonata in the shower, let your voice be heard.  Sometimes, it is just a change of outlook or attitude that will have you sailing through this month.

THEME OF THE YEAR , This is a time to make a name for yourself and grow to your full potential.

Did you know:

Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn are all earth signs?

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Did you ever sit in a park and watch how children play.  You can tell who are the idea people, the leaders, the strong ones, and the helpful ones.  Pay attention to the people in your life and see where they fit in your life and where you fit into theirs.  We all take on different roles depending on the group we are in.  The focus will be on everyone’s and your individual roles.  Different strokes for different folks.  You Sags like to learn, so take this opportunity to expand your knowledge base by bridging gaps and not creating them.

THEME OF THE YEAR , When you are focused on your goals, it won’t matter if you are in the dark.

Capricorn (December 21 – January 20)

Sometimes when you lose something, it might feel like all is gone.  However, when something is lost, there is always something new that is ready to step into your life.  You’ve heard that someone’s loss is someone else’s gain.  What it is going to take is a different outlook.  A little bit of soul searching will get you through this period because the future holds more now compared to what you think you have lost.  The learning you have gathered over the past few months will have to be put to use and please, don’t dwell on the past.

THEME OF THE YEAR , This is your year to take the bull by the horns and don’t let go!

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Don’t stay in a stuffy room.  Open a window or two and let the fresh air blow in.  The lofty visions will only inspire you for so long.  Learn to take real dreams and turn them into concrete building blocks for what you want to do for yourself.  Engage those close to you and heed their advice because doing it alone is one thing but doing it with some help is a whole lot easier.  And hell, it can be a lot more fun.  Look to bring more gamesmanship into both life’s little and bigger matters.  If you are having fun, the easier it is to pull things off and check them off your list.


THEME OF THE YEAR , An individual but part of everyone, watch how this affects your relationships.

Pisces (February 18 – March 20)

Life is too short to make compromises.  Many people have been killed fighting or standing for what they believe in.  Now, I’m not saying to do that and there are times when you should back down like when arguing with a truck but I’m also not telling to let loose on your friends either!  It better to take the diplomatic and psychological approach.  Try to understand what is triggering your responses.  Not everything can go your way and if you look to enhance your life rather than aggravate it.  Learn to take the high road.

THEME OF THE YEAR , The road to achievement requires you to cross the bridge of creativity. Dream big.
