Will this be your ‘annus horribilis’ or the time that you find the love of your life? Are you set to be properous or poor?
January 21-February 19
If you want to get the most from this amazing year then you must be willing to live outside the box. Dare to think the unthinkable and feel high passions. There are challenges. Some will be met and others will disappoint. Allow yourself to feel disappointment and move on. People in your life who drain your energy need to be sidestepped. Those who present financial or legal challenges need a firm answer. Venus is here to encourage you to give your heart. Slow to commit, quick to pre-nup, that’s you now. Do you fear failure? No need. Some degree of success is guaranteed. Just don’t ask for too much too soon. Summer love can be passionate and unexpected, making you tear up the rulebook. Again, enjoy the moment. Special people come along and will help build your success and future.
OVERALL: A CREATIVE AND SATISFYING YEAR, ALLOWING OTHERS TO GIVE MORE EMOTIONALLY BECAUSE OF YOUR OPEN ATTITUDE.
February 20-March 20
A boost to your instincts and intuition makes you a force to be reckoned with this year. Listen carefully and tune in to the needs of others. This will give you a knowledge and an edge that many will envy. The planets will be good to you and not overly demanding, allowing you the chance to follow your dreams. When something stirs your curiosity and you follow it up, a personal and deep reality shows you the way to go. There can be magic in some human interactions and someone who comes your way this summer will be very special. In a rush of love and enthusiasm, there is the temptation to let your feelings out too soon. A little time spent together gives the clue to a longer-lasting union. When Venus brings such love she is trying to be kind but with the combination of Jupiter here, passions can fire prematurely. Sharp instincts and high-functioning intuition make changes to both your personality and life outlook that would seem impossible as you read this, Pisces.
OVERALL: A YEAR TO BRING HOME TO YOU HOW MUCH OTHERS VALUE YOUR TIME AND TALENTS, AND A TIME OF PEAK CREATIVITY.
March 21-April 20
With bountiful Jupiter on your tail for most of the year, adventure and romance follow you wherever you go. The summer and autumn also see Venus, the sign of balance and love, drawing others to you. Aim to be at your very best and most receptive around these times. Those who are happily suited already may not be able to avoid flirting, but take care. Don’t forget to value what you already have, even if pastures new beckon! The natural need to express yourself can come through family, music, art and career. The positive influences of both Jupiter and Venus really do give you a head start in any endeavour. Career choices expand and something that fulfils your needs is there for the taking. Be prepared to work hard and stretch your abilities just a little bit more. To go with the flow can be tempting, but endeavour and control are your best friends. Knowledge is the key to your future, Aries.
OVERALL: THIS IS A YEAR THAT IS BOTH DEMANDING AND INSPIRING BECAUSE YOU DECIDE TO TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR OWN DESTINY.
April 21-May 21
The expansive, creative and loving influences of both Jupiter and Venus are with you for most of the year ahead. This heralds dramatic and life-changing liaisons and growing family happiness. Those Taureans who remain unattached are able to meet and greet love through a friend or blind date. Many of you will either move home or move to a different area. Expanding your current house also works. Some risk may be involved in decisions in this area, so do your homework! Legal eagles do better than taking things on trust, especially where money is concerned. This year is most likely to see you in the right place at the right time career-wise. The chance to work from home or to develop a passionate interest that brings in extra cash is likely. This, in turn, alerts you to the possibilities of starting something new. So much has changed in a year that it’s hard to believ. Involve loved ones in your plans to keep harmony in your heart. Enthusiasm is the key to your future, Taurus.#
OVERALL: A YEAR THAT BRINGS OPPORTUNITIES AND EMOTIONAL GIFTS WHICH CONTINUE TO SERVE YOU IN THE FUTURE.
May 22-June 21
As this New Year begins, there may be a case for looking back, especially over career and money matters and making the best of them. Something started in the former area at the end of last year perhaps needs finishing. This may mean moving up or moving on. Neither will be daunting to you with expansive Jupiter urging you onwards. Enthusiasm is contagious and it is wise to use both this and charm with those in authority. Indeed, as the summer begins, a special relationship could develop between you and a boss or mentor. This is exciting enough, but when we put loving Venus into the mix temptation is hard to resist! Some Geminians feel a strong spiritual call in the autumn that can lead to life-changing but satisfying beliefs. This is an area that has perhaps been in flux for some time. It is good, after all, to have a firm conviction. Creativity is the key to your future, Gemini.
OVERALL: A YEAR IN WHICH YOU THRIVE AND INSPIRE THOSE AROUND YOU TO GREATER HEIGHTS.
June 22-July 23
Success this year, Cancer, really depends on your approach to life. Too cautious and you may miss chances. Too optimistic and overspending and rash decisions could mar success. The presence of Jupiter and, later, Venus, bring gifts to your table. The trick is in not gobbling them all at once! Being one of the more loveable signs, romance is never far away. Temptations in this area abound right through the year and may even involve a past love. Tread carefully so as not to repeat a past mistake. Growing your home and family are possibilities and there are chances for great happiness. Jupiter is an expansive sign which can trigger a need for freedom. When this touches your working life, it could mean becoming your own boss. Great, but take advice from those who have gone before! Overspending is a big temptation. A serious attitude to money is the key to your success.
OVERALL: A YEAR IN WHICH YOU GROW BOTH EMOTIONALLY AND INTELLECTUALLY, BRINGING BENEFITS TO THOSE AROUND YOU.
July 24-August 23
Intrigue, spontaneity, romance and career leaps bounce through this dramatic year for you, Leo. It’s a bit like a rollercoaster you don’t want to stop. Watch those tricky romantic corners! With Jupiter encouraging you to expand and be in the spotlight, your social life is going to take off (not that it is likely to be boring now). Providing for your family and encouraging them to be more independent is a fine balance but one worth it. Past loves and those tempting people from abroad can send your heart all a-flutter. Enjoy later in the year experimenting and finding new paths. Career-wise, there are changes but these are mainly due to your own need to gain ground. Time to ask for promotion or a rise? Early summer gives the best chance. Try not to curb your wonderful creative streak because of lack of time. Fit it in. A bountiful attitude is your key to success this year.
OVERALL: IN A YEAR WHICH IS SATISFYING AND INSPIRING TO OTHERS, YOUR ENTHUSIASM AND EXAMPLE SHOULD BE APPRECIATED.
August 24-September 23
Get ready to be in the spotlight this year, Virgo! You seem to have this knack of drawing attention to yourself whatever you do. No doubt, like the rest of us, you have some secrets that you would rather keep. Protect them well. The influence of expansive Jupiter will encourage a display of your talents and ambitions in all areas. Equally influential will be Venus, bringer of love and beauty. For most of the time, romance and close relationships bring a great deal of joy and excitement. Even so, it is the times when you decide to take time out and chill that bring real inspiration. Keeping your finances and health under control is hard in the summer and autumn as the urge to overindulge takes a grip. Where now is that self-control? Home and family matters need you to be energetic and optimistic which gives an incentive to keep things trim. Personal growth and discovery lead the way to your future this year, Virgo.
OVERALL: A YEAR IN WHICH TO GROW ON ALL FRONTS, TAKING CONTROL IN PARTICULAR OF YOUR MONEY AND HEALTH.
September 24-October 23
This is something of a turnaround year. At times your usual gentle and charming attitude becomes decidedly sharp! Anyone who tries to take advantage or take you for granted is likely to be put in their place. Of course you want peace, but you are more willing to stand up for your beliefs. Venus is strong in your life through summer and early autumn but you are going to be very picky about who shares your affections. There is a wonderful chance to find a group really are on your wavelength. Show enthusiasm for their project and don’t be held back by modesty. Your talents are as good as anyone’s, perhaps even better. New people enter your home life but may leave just as quickly. What you get from this is a boost in confidence and some life-changing attitudes. Inquisitiveness and enthusiasm are your ways to success.
OVERALL: A YEAR IN WHICH YOU REALISE THAT THE WINNER IS SOMETIMES THE ONE WHO LOSES IN THE LONG RUN AND YOU FIND AN EMOTIONALLY PEACEFUL PLACE.
October 24-November 22
Taking an easy ride is possible for you in the coming year. However, if you cruise along without pushing yourself, you will be missing out on some great opportunities! The more effort you make to be who you want to be, the more chance of success. Go at things at full pelt and show enthusiasm. But factoring in some down time is crucial to keep body and mind in tip-top shape. Your health is your real wealth. A nagging feeling you should get down to money matters is due to Saturn, who won’t make it easy for you to make excuses. You have better things coming up, so deal with it! Some of those better things involve Venus, who shadows you right through the months. Summer is especially loving and romantic and those who are unattached could meet a soul mate. If already attached, your family could grow unexpectedly. Expansion and optimism will bring your best times.
OVERALL: A YEAR IN WHICH YOU BRING AS MUCH HAPPINESS TO OTHERS AS YOU DO TO YOURSELF. CAREER MATTERS ARE MUCH BETTER BALANCED.
November 23-December 21
Love, fiery encounters and passions abound for you. With passionate Venus and ever-expansive Jupiter on your tail, enjoy the ride! If some benefits seem to come too easily then make an effort to keep them flowing. Magical things can happen when you put everything into a dream. Travel brings so much so, if you have the chance, take it. What seems like a small trip brings opportunities. Someone who fires your imagination (and heartstrings) makes it a summer to remember. You will be on a steep learning curve professionally and personally. What you learn now will show its worth and stay with you. Even so, if you want all of these things, be out and about showing your talents. Fancy an arty or literary future? Now’s the time! Creativity and passion form the perfect curve to bring hopes and dreams to life.
OVERALL: A YEAR IN WHICH FANTASY FLOWS THROUGH REALITY, PROVIDING VISIONS OF THE FUTURE THAT ARE TRULY INSPIRING.
December 22-January 20
This is a year of many parts for you, Capricorn. At times it is like a fairground ride you can’t step off. Don’t try. Go with it. Nothing lasts forever and that includes restless and difficult times. As these fade, Venus steps up to the mark, determined to find you love. With a strong and powerful thrust from Jupiter (she loves that!) you can be propelled into the arms of someone special. Of course, effort is required to have these gains. Be inquisitive, demand to know answers, seek out unusual and inspiring people. Get legal or financial matters sorted early in the year. You have better things to do! Remember peace of mind is better than winning. But caution, enthusiasm and over-confidence could lead you to get involved in a bad situation. Certainly check people out and read the small print. Awareness and acceptance of what you cannot change brings the key to success and contentment.
OVERALL: A YEAR BOTH LIFE-CHANGING AND LIFE-AFFIRMING, ALLOWING YOU TO SEE A MUCH BRIGHTER ROAD AHEAD.
