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.
