ARIES (March 21st – April 20th)

Get started on a new work project but the very start of the year is not the right time to make a move. From the beginning of April is when it’s safe to strut your stuff. Between June and September, time wasting pastimes whether an overly active social life, glued to TV and social networking could hold you back from realising your potential. Devote your energy to jobs with a specific purpose. It will be worth your while, in the autumn, to search for unusual travel deals. You instinctively home-in on the best ways to make a quick profit. Financial security should be uppermost in your mind all year long: lay a nest egg!

TAURUS (April 21st – May 21st)

Taking a well calculated risk will prove exhilarating this year. Be ready to try something completely different. Sometimes venturing into unfamiliar territory is the only way you will change and grow. A positive way to save money during the first half of the year is to use energy efficient appliances and find alternative places to spend your money on items that are creeping up in price. If you have your own business or want to go freelance, the autumn would be a good to expand. Getting a job at a big institution/corporate or forming a global alliance are amongst the possibilities as the year ends.

GEMINI (May 22nd – June 21st)

Investing in a unique business yields an impressive profit in November.

CANCER (June 22nd – July 23rd)

Be selective about the company you keep. Surrounding yourself with talented professionals will enhance your career prospects. Developing a creative project will be the best use of your time in February and March. You’ll be more than a quick study and people are willing to pay you for your handiwork and talents. Any attempt to improve your business or financial situation between April and August will be more than favourable. Keep an open mind in the autumn and be prepared to pursue and experience something sparkly-and-bright. Through meeting new challenges, you’ll realise your potential.

LEO (July 24th – August 23rd)

Certain changes in your lifestyle in 2019 are more than necessary. Sudden and even surprising financial boosts will arise through opportunities you didn’t even know were there! If all goes according to plan, a fresh stance from you in the spring will lead to something out-of-the-blue. An unexpected sum of money could well arrive in the autumn. You will land on your feet as you were about to give up the ghost. If, by the end of the year, your work demands more of your attention and this leaves little time for pleasure, strive for a better balance.

VIRGO (August 24th – September 23rd)
