Work & Wealth 2006

ARIES Mar 21st - Apr 19th Fortune, so it is said, favours the brave. Yet there a lot of truth in this. And as an Aries, your bold strategies often pay off, simply because you have the bottle to go where others fear to tread. The key to this year, in applying your natural risk taking instincts, will be in combining your flair with business acumen. Indeed, it could be said the two go hand in hand. Yet some people can be very creative and find it hard to turn a coin, and others very shrewd and successful, yet hardly inventive. 2006 offers you to the chance to find the balance. The third week in October, could see all your efforts reach a high point.

TAURUS Apr 20th - May 21st You can do well this year in partnerships, or where you sell, market, promote or work with the public. But there's a catch. Where ever you work, or whoever with, feeling at ease in your environs is going to be more important. If you don’t feel comfortable, it could stop you from functioning as well as you might. For some Bulls there could be an attraction to home working. Have you a hobby that could be ramped up into a small enterprise, or might you stay connected to a base HQ by computer, broadband and the like? Yet even if you do, you will need good boundaries or else the clutter of a home, could equally affect your serenity.

GEMINI May 22nd - Jun 21st One of your prized assets is your brilliant ability to dip in and out of lots of different concepts with lightening speed. Gemini’s often do well in the world of training, teaching and IT, or more social sectors such as hospitality or showbiz. Yet this year, you could have so much nervous energy it needs to be anchored down. You could find yourself doing a million things at once, at a million miles an hour but achieving little of substance. So slowing down and applying yourself to a narrower range makes sense. Learning a new skill or adding to existing ones may also feature. Do join that worked based lottery syndicate though!

CANCER Jun 22nd - Jul 23rd Saturn keeps our noses to the proverbial astral grindstone, but it does bring rewards - if we keep at it! This year presents a fabulous opportunity to flourish, but you need to have the courage to really demonstrate just how talented you are. You often shuffle your resources as astutely as anyone, but now you may have to batten down the hatches just a little more to make sure that your nest egg will grow nicely. Avoid taking on credit or store cards. Occasionally, indulgence may be tempting, but if you can simplify your financial affairs and have some fun by being more inventive, then you'll be building a sound platform for future growth.

LEO Jul 24th - Aug 23rd You could enjoy some good luck through a family connection this year or are youabout to turn a considerable profit on a property deal? Either or, is possible. This can also be a time of new beginnings. A project or concept which has been rattling around in the back of your mind for longer than you care to remember could be at the heart of your hopes to improve your wealth in 2006 and perhaps someone in your clan will be keen to invest time or money in this. For some Leo’s renting a spare room out could prove to be the way to generate extra cash and there is no doubt that your approach can be very resourceful.

VIRGO Aug 24th - Sep 23rd Something you began a while ago, or skills you have amassed over a long periodof time, can be clues of how to add to your wealth in 2006. With Jupiter, the most fortunate of planets in your talk and thought sector, for most of the year, don’t underestimate how much your communication skills can influence this process. You may have things that others need or want. Of course you have to believe this and you have to reach out and engage with the possibilities. But it would be of little surprise if you found yourself working in some kind of institution - perhaps even behind the scenes. Your lucky number this year will be three!

LIBRA Sep 24th - Oct 23rd With the traditional planet of fortune, Jupiter, located in your zone of finances for almost all of 2006, you’d have every right to be hopeful that this is the year when good things can come to you. As ever with Jupiter, the harder we work, the luckier we get, but earthy resources could be ones that provide a particularly providential return. And with Saturn, the planet of business, now occupying the chart area which emphasises the benefits of teamwork, or ecological or environmental enterprises, there are quite a few clues as to the way forwards. Yet you mustn’t sacrifice your principles in the pursuit of gain.

SCORPIO Oct 24th - Nov 22nd You can feel full of enterprise in 2006, great for starting your own business, or finding an employed role which better enables you to demonstrate the full scope of your capabilities. Extra responsibilities - perhaps through a promotion could be in prospect too. You may need to ask yourself how much you want to burdened by these, but if you are keen to climb the ladder of success you can show an awesome amount of determination and stickability in order to reach the summit. Essentially you are looking for acknowledgement and recognition. The trick will be in handling your relationships well with those in positions of influence.

SAGITTARIUS Nov 23rd - Dec 21st We all have to play the game of life and this includes dealing with the reality of work or our finances. Often it is not as straightforward as we would like, there are politics and personalities which can be a bar to prosperity. And yet you have an inherent flexibility which can help you to cope. However, generally, you would prefer if people were frank. Don’t assume this will be the case. You may have to keep on your toes. Overseas investments - perhaps property interests, are a point in case. You may need your wits about you. In any contractual dealings this year, do use a professional advisor to back you up.

CAPRICORN Dec 22nd - Jan 20th It’s an old cliché, it’s not what you know, but who. An yet even in rather more informal ways, nepotism is part and parcel of life and in your case, 2006 could see you be truly fortunate through the network of contacts and associates that you enjoy. If this is not such a strong area, work on building it. And networking can work in the literal sense. The medium of IT, balancing your individuality while remaining part of an overall group, can also add to your fortunes. Joining a trade association or a small business club can also be very positive ways to boost your cash-flow. Yet long term investments will benefit from caution.

AQUARIUS Jan 21st - Feb 19th There can be strains in business partnerships and it may not be a good idea to automatically assume that other people have the same values and attitudes towards commerce as you do. If you work in a fast moving commercial world, you may have to work hard on your promotional skills. If you do, the location of Jupiter suggests that there can be eager audience waiting for you to brief them or to snap up your talents. In personal finances, hard work you've invested for some while can start to pay dividends. An improvement in status is also possible in 2006, not least from the extra confidence you will show in worldly interaction.

PISCES Feb 20th - Mar 20th You could be keen to do something different in the world of work, and especially if things have become too predictable. For some Fish, higher education could be a pathway to a brighter financial future, but of course the rewards may not be instant. And yet whatever you do, you may have to assuage restlessness and concentrate on the finer details. If your mind starts to wander, you could find the boss breathing down your neck. If you do want to invest capital in a new adventure, if your planning is thorough and well researched, you could do really well. Links with far away places could be lucky too. Working in the holiday industry may appeal to some.

Health & Fitness 2006

ARIES Mar 21st - Apr 19th Recreation and sociability may not seem obviously linked to Health and Fitnessissues, but they provide a clue as to how you can maintain a good work-life balance in 2006. If you are already active, good for you, for this will help you to deal with life’s inevitable stresses and strains. If not, put your best foot forwards. Whether it’s the local Pilates class, running club, or an interest where you can be personally creative, perhaps at evening classes these kind of things will help to boost your immune system. Don’t be surprised either if a more experienced friend, becomes a major source of encouragement within this.

TAURUS Apr 20th - May 21st With strict Saturn crashing through one of the most sensitive of areas all year, emotional upsets, or family needs could prove to be a drain on your resources this year. The trick will be in not going it alone. Therefore don’t bottle up your frustrations and worries, share them. Others may be much more receptive than you might imagine. There can be a major evolution taking place in key relationships. Certain players can have a very supportive influence and help to take the pressure off. Yet it could be your stomach which proves sensitive. If you can limit the amount of salty or spicy foods stuffs the more comfortable you will be.

GEMINI May 22nd - Jun 21st Being an air sign, circulatory issues can often come up for Gemini’s as can anything to do with your lungs. It’s said that onion based dishes and garlic can be excellent for aiding the respiratory system and obviously if you can take to the hills and ratchet up the amount of walking you do, then that will be beneficial. Swimming and cycling can also help to develop your breathing capacity. However, if you are looking for a more sociable interface, joining the local fitness centre or an aerobics class, can be a good way to get fitter, and make friends in the process. Certainly not the best of years to be sedentary!

CANCER Jun 22nd - Jul 23rd Your eliminatory system can be important this year, as can your adrenal function. If you can hack down the caffeine and alcohol and perhaps introduce rooibos or good quality fruit teas your palate will likely soon adapt and your body will appreciate the reduction in stimulation. It’s said that bottled waters have more salt than tap water and the latter with a slice of lemon and lime can be equally funky and contain a whole lot less sodium. Yet with Jupiter in such a bubbly location all year, there are going to be plenty of opportunities to have fun. It’s just finding the balance between pleasure and sensibility!

LEO Jul 24th - Aug 23rd The first three months and the last month of 2006 could be hard going in terms of neat energy. Then you’d be advised to limit the amount you try to do and concentrate very much on essentials. For a fire sign like you and with your ruler being the Sun, the dark months of the year can be challenging, but if you can keep on the move, this will be helpful. If you enjoy winter sports, for example, some time away could be just the tonic you need. However, at the core of the year is the need to eliminate anything from your world which no longer relevant. There won’t be a great deal of latitude, so this may require you to extremely self-disciplined.

VIRGO Aug 24th - Sep 23rd Your psychological health is going to be an important arena. It’s as if you're being asked to get to grips with anything from your past which is affecting the present. Unresolved anxieties, or past traumas which are still lurking in the depths will continue to have an unhelpful influence, and will need to be faced up to. But this is year when you can learn a great deal about yourself and someone could have an important role in helping you with your personal development. This could be a wise friend or a professional counsellor. Either way, any kind of toxins will be unhelpful to your journey, so great care with your diet is essential.

LIBRA Sep 24th - Oct 23rd Will you pile on the pounds in 2006 or be determined to give up that particular favourite foodstuff, which you know has just a few too many calories in it? Quite a few! There is so much availability of information so if you do want to step up to the challenge of toning yourself up, there is going to be little to inhibit the process - so essentially it comes down to you and your self-discipline. And you may need it this year, because with expansive Jupiter in "the goody zone" just about anything gooey, sticky and sweet could prove hard to resist! Instead get our "luxury fix" by finding high quality wholesome locally grown foods, then you can thrive.


SCORPIO Oct 24th - Nov 22nd A whole new you can develop in 2006, but there can be demands along the way. Investing in your individuality can see you prosper in the wider world, but pressures can increase in tandem with this. With such a lot going on, the key will be fitting in exercise in way which dovetails. It’s going to be the same with eating. It would be easy to skip meals, perhaps because of being busy, but equally you may become more attuned to your appearance and the impact your personal presentation has in a professional context. But food equates to energy, and you will starve yours if you try to take short cuts and as such a good mineral supplement could be a boon.

SAGITTARIUS Nov 23rd - Dec 21st It may sound like an old wives tale, but eating things that are good for the brain though making sense all the time, could do more so, in 2006. Be it omega 3 oils from fish, or making sure that you are getting more than the minimum of five portions of fruit and vegetables a day, can provide the cornerstone of your activities. If you are an active Archer, then supplementing your diet further still with calcium rich foods will also be good in terms of the planetary set-up this year. With your ruler in the most remote sector, your system could also be more sensitive to toxins than usual and drinking plenty of water will help to flush these out.

CAPRICORN Dec 22nd - Jan 20th Some Goats could find themselves drawn to team sports this year, and this of course can be a more sociable way of keeping fit. Yet with your ruler moving through the zone of ends and beginnings in 2006, subtly, you could become more aware of the ends and beginnings of life. Any relationships that do finish this year, could have a troubling impact on your emotional health, and especially if there are financial or business squabbles in association. Yet you can become much more aware of yourself and your own needs. To sustain your equilibrium, maintaining a little more independence could prove very helpful.

AQUARIUS Jan 21st - Feb 19th Broken bones may not be something you can image yourself getting, but if you dotake part in any kind of impact sport, then there' the clue. Outside of this, Water Carriers will need to keep a sense of psychological balance in all you do. Aerobic exercises which help you with this are well worth pursuing. With Jupiter at the top of your horoscope this year, success in a professional sphere could also cause wear and tear. But making sure that you don’t eat too many working lunches, is probably a good idea. If however, you are upscaling, it is going to be vital to burn off those extra calories later in the day.

PISCES Feb 20th - Mar 20th You’re given a brilliant opportunity in 2006 to take a fresh look at your approach to health and fitness. And yet, and despite any well meaning New Years resolutions, you may not be over blessed with energy in the first quarter of the year. In fact demands could seem overwhelming at times. Therefore take seriously the needs of your body. It is a tool, but one which must be carefully nourished and looked after. If you rise to this challenge, you can find yourself modifying quite a few areas of your existence and in so doing can then become more equal to demands. People with unusual ideas can help inspire you to take positive steps.
