December 22 – January 20
You are motivated by a need for respect and authority and this period will emphasise how well you exercise both your opinion and ideas. Be careful that maintaining a focused view is not simply being inflexible. Be prepared to take others’ into account and do not sacrifice wisdom for authority. You are better able to maintain your integrity of being respected not only for being firm but for being just and flexible enough to provide the best for all concerned.
January 21 – February 19
The signature of this time is about relating to the world at large and to others in particular. You are one who loves the sociability of groups but the challenge is to develop good one-to-one relations with others which call for some level of emotional commitment. There are some who will find this harder than others. Remember that finding ideas and goals in common might be the first step but it is also about connecting not only to how you feel about them but also how others do. Make the effort and you will be surprised by the results.
February 20 – March 20
A challenging time as you may have to adjust your activities to a temporary lack or diminishing of energy. Make sure that you give yourself the time to recover as your stamina may not be as it was. There may also be some emotional challenges that may sap your energy. Consider keeping good emotional structures in place as you tend to pick up on whatever is going around and this could be detrimental. A good time to develop a creative interest which could absorb some of the emotion and serve as an effective barrier.
March 21 – April 20
There is a lot of restlessness and explosive, excessive energy which may manifest in confrontations with others on matters of philosophy or outlook on life. You may be tempted to pursue these with over-zealousness or may be intolerant with those who stand in opposition to you. Your impulsive nature and reactions may have unfortunate results especially as matters may not always be clear or evident. The best way is to maintain a personal focus rather than simply reacting to situations otherwise you may find yourself struggling with unnecessary conflicts.
April 21 – May 21
Your ability to remain steadfast stands you in good stead as there will be opportunities to expand either social or financial horizons but this will require hard work. Do not be tempted by what seems to be an ‘easy’ or ‘guaranteed’ scheme. Instead, look into what you are offered and examine the detail. The opportunities that are worth it will stand out. Take time to decide before you commit yourself and you may find that taking an alternative or unusual tack may be advantageous.
May 22 – June 21
Your ideas or opinions have the ability to convince or at least influence others so take care that you are both considerate and considered in expressing them. There may be those that take offence at the seeming influence you have on others especially those who may be younger or less experienced. You may also find that the nature of those ideas and opinions may be considered rash or radical so be prepared to take the time to think through, explain and maintain your position in a thoughtful and objective manner rather than simply reacting to others.
June 22 – July 22
You may find that you have to stand up to those whose ideas or opinions cause distress to those close to you or those in need. Your compassionate and protective nature will want to ‘rescue’ them but remember that the best protection you can provide is to harness the strengths of others to assist you. You cannot do everything yourself so look to broadening your network, coordinating what needs to be done and in this way realising the changes you want to make. This may not happen as quickly as you wish but at least you will have put the wheels in motion.
July 23 – August 22
This is a time of hard work building confidence and competence in the face of others’ expectations. There are two ways of going about this: either you let others set the standards or goals and you will find yourself always falling a bit short, or you take the initiative in developing your own. While this may seem daunting at first, you will find that the latter will have longer lasting results. Your need for recognition and acknowledgement may tempt you to simply ‘do as you are told’ and get the pat on the head but if you do this, you will always be dependent on others rather than making your own mark.
August 23 – September 23
Perfection and exactness dominate your nature and in this period you will find that your ability for precision and detail should produce very good results. In doing so, make sure that the information you receive is sound and factual as you will base a lot of decisions on them. Do not rely on hearsay or rumour or this will be your undoing. Your instincts about others are also heightened so be prepared to listen and act on them.
September 24 – October 23
Your ability to generate cooperation with others will be tested as you may find disruptive influences challenging your position. Although you will be tempted to try and please everyone at best or just maintain the status quo at worst, the best thing to do is to ensure that any compromise you make does not erode your objectives. Working or being with others is often the greatest challenge as it is not simply about the ‘togetherness’ but actually producing results. To this end, an objective and impartial view provides both equity and fairness.
October 24 – November 22
The goals or projects you have been working on may hit a snag in the form of lost focus or lack of motivation. You are very resilient so do not let this discourage you. Instead, take the time to recharge the batteries especially in the form of connecting with those who are important to you. They provide both energy and inspiration to get you back on track. Your emotional nature may see you overreacting and this may also be energy draining. Allow yourself time to absorb the emotion and express it gradually – this way you do not allow yourself to be vulnerable.
November 23 – December 21
Structure and responsibility loom large as your enthusiasm and optimism must now be channelled into productive outcomes. Refrain from seeing this as a restraint and instead consider that this is the next stage of making your dreams a reality. There are obstacles to overcome so use your natural optimism to propel you through. Although naturally generous, use this period to be more circumspect in both spending money and being available to all and sundry.
