Aries (March 20 – April 20)

Time to get festive about the things happening in your life.  I think things are coming together to bring you on the right path.  You have to expand your view or you’ll just be stuck in the ways of the past.  Stagnation is not what you are looking for.  Learning and creative growth is what is will give you the inspiration to achieve your goals.  And don’t try to do this all by your lonesome.  It won’t seem so burdensome if you actually ask for help.  In addition, friendly advice is what could save you time in getting to where you need to be.

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)

When certain chemicals are combined, you can expect a reaction to happen.  Don’t throw water on a grease fire as the fire will spread.  You have to be in charge of how you send your message and don’t think that you can hide in the shadows.  Be extra cautious of people who want to throw you under the bus this month and with that being said don’t give them the opportunity.   Study the arena you’re playing in.  Know the ingredients you are cooking with.  Don’t be paranoid about saboteurs but also don’t let your guard down.  Move forward in confidence that you have done your preparation.  Fight those inner demons that might hold you back.

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

Gemini (May 21 – June 21)

If you’re going to making a storm determine if having it in a teacup is better than out in the open.  It depends on who is there to see it.  Everybody had a point to their opinion so don’t let them trigger you on points you are not aware of.  Take time to research and focus on all matters that are pertinent to your situation and those around you.  Keep the bigger picture open and you’ll see who will make way for you by either stepping aside or in your aid.  You’ll find that you are no longer blinded by the light, so let knowledge guide you.

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)

What is it about individuality that makes you pose yourself against others?  One thing that is important to remember is not to get your motivation from others in the sense that you have to try to do what they do.  The focus should be on plotting your own destiny and not let other plot it for you.  Avoid looking to past events or failed relationships for inspiration.  I think you know what you need to do but you have to put faith in yourself and your own creative nature to get working on it.  Don’t get down on yourself but rather get disciplined.  That feeling might just be indigestion.

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

Leo (July 22 – August 23)

What is it about partnerships that drives you and motivates you?  Is it that they lift you up to bring you in a place where you feel special?  Keep in mind this isn’t all about romance but also in business or artistic endeavours.  Partnerships sometimes allow us to kick our feet up so we don’t have shoulder the burden on our own but it also allows you to lend a helping hand.  You could be feeling quite nostalgic about the past.  How will that inspire to make the changes deep inside you so you can grow to your full potential?  Try communicating that to those close to you.

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

Virgo (August 23 – September 23)

I would make sure everything is in check this month since you don’t want to catch whatever everyone else has.  February in the north is a kind of blah time so there doesn’t need to be an extra damper on all that fun.  Choose what you want to experience in the way of work and don’t forget the fun time but you may be a bit more selective in that regard.  Try not to get over tired.  Part of all of this is to avoid jumping on the bandwagon especially if you do not know where it is going.  Just say no to stupidity and be discerning.

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

Libra (September 23 – October 23)

You may try to hide behind a façade that you are putting around yourself.  Rely on your friends to strip you of that mask and call you out to be yourself.  Stick up for your values if they are sound but be ready and accepting to change them if they are not for the greater good.  Sometimes, we’re faced with a little tug of war within ourselves but you know that is a good thing.  It means you are open and looking for improvement.  The worst thing is allowing yourself to fester in a state of mediocrity because you will not take action.  There’s nothing wrong with changing directions if you realise you have taken the wrong path.

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

 Scorpio (October 23 – November 22)

Baby steps.  The best way to approach a new thing is to take it a few steps at a time.  You don’t start weightlifting 100Kg right away!  You don’t start running a marathon without building up to it. Let me remind you the first man to do so, Pheidippides, died right afterwards.  The thing is that you might be slightly overconfident in your abilities and I don’t want you to overdo it.  Sure, you want to want to rise to the top but take the tortoise’s advice and apply the judicial slow and steady approach to get what you want.

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

Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius are all fire signs?

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Set a goal.  Know what you want to get at the end of it all.  Make you plans.  Prepare all the gear you need to get and get ready to get dirty.  Many people say they like things and are not ready to put in the effort to get it.  Sometimes, you might have one shot at it and if you don’t take it, then you’ll miss the opportunity.  At the same time, you don’t want to go in guns a blazing because you’ll frighten everything in the way.  Be strategic in your thinking this month and don’t go shooting your mouth off just for the sake of speaking.

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)

Are you going to dodge the steamroller coming after you or will you be the driving it?  There will be a sense of survival that will have you decide which is more important, your wants or other people’s wants.  Take some tips from your Libra friends, as they will give some reliable tips on how to weigh both sides of the matter.   You don’t have to be right all the time because the sports teams that rise to the top are the ones that play as a unit.  So going back to that steamroller, make it work for everyone’s goals and you’ll see how you can benefit.

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)

Some people’s barks are bigger than their bites.  However, don’t write them off because they might just be announcing they have the whole brigade following them.  However, you do have to back up what you say with actions or everyone is going to learn to call you on your bluff.   You will have the tendency to speak with strong language without even being aware of it.  A good use of this period would be to do some therapeutic work.  Keeping all this in mind, will help you deal with any of the relationship matters that come to light this month.


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

Pisces (February 18 – March 20)

Pay attention to people’s musings.  They might be blowing off steam but at the same time, they might be ready to start a revolution.  You have to focus on keeping the peace and being the voice reason when people go banding together with their picket signs.  Try not to be dismissive of people’s feelings or their reasons for their actions but make sure you are aware of the political situation in any group you are part of be it family, friends or organisations.  You might have to make some concessions and play the game of diplomacy.

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