Cancer
[ June 22 to July 22 ]

Leo

Your urge to improve your professional life will be more acute than ever before. Your grasp of facts will become more sure and unerring. The affairs of the heart should, however, be put on hold for the time being.
Virgo

Sagittarius
[ Nov 23 to Dec 22]
A still more severe jolt to your financial situation may take the wind out of your sails. It remains to be seen whether you will manage to keep your head above the water. Thursday appears to be your most wasteful day.
Capricorn

Born on

December 17 
A Sun-Ketu combine is always a stumbling block. Your progress could be hindered because of new responsibilities that may be thrust on you. With your work load increasing with each passing day, there will be no end to your worries. If you are on the look out for a job, you will have to elbow your way through a crowd.

There is hardly any chance to remain immune from social obligations. April will see a swift rise in your expenditure. Your economy, however, makes a turn around from July onwards.

December 18 
A centrally placed moon sighted by Jupiter, reveals that the period ahead is full of joy and merriment. A majority of you will realise that a period of good luck has set in. There is optimism in the air. You will evolve new ways to add to your earnings. You will also remain reasonably contented with whatever falls into your lap. 

As March gets underway, your plans will meet with abundant success. Your dreams of a better life are about to be realised. You will put forth your point of view with strength and authority.

December 19
With Mars in the house of income, you should now be feeling more strong and secure. You are bound to become more assertive, conscientious and straightforward in your conduct and behaviour. You can expect to release a longstanding ambition suddenly. If a house move is on your agenda, this is the best time to give it a practical shape.

Make sure that you earn more and even spend more without any constraints whatsoever. Your urge to shop or to strike suitable bargains will become more acute. You will go slow and not decide things impulsively.

December 20
Your life may revolve around home, family life, and welfare of your kith and kin. You will, therefore, remain overwhelmed with various kinds of engagements, one after the other. There will be no scope to off-load your burdens. Fast-growing demands of the younger generation will baffle you. In short, you will get no time to shrug your shoulders and relax.

You will have to push yourself a little harder during April-May. At work, there will be a slight muddle during August-September. If some adventurous step is on your mind, keep it pending during the last phase.

December 21
With no possibility of any hold up or delay, this is a significant year when you should hit the peak and live up to your reputation. If you have been without tangible motivation, a more settled atmosphere will prevail. Your stars will bestow upon you a boldness in your approach. The only risk is that you might wear yourself out, so make sure you take some time off also.

If you are an aspirant for a job, the middle part of the year is favourable for achieving success in your mission.

December 22
Ill-sighted Venus is opposing your sign tooth and nail. “Familiarity breeds contempt”, is an old saying. The wisdom it imparts needs to be kept in view when you aspire to be hand and glove with somebody. Although while forming relationships, the current planetary positions do not encourage you to go beyond a certain limit.

Friends will misunderstand your intentions during the first quarter. You could even be tricked by your friends during the second. Excessive travelling could prove harmful during the third.

December 23
A year of immense potential for persons trying to seek a career. Most of your planets are at peace with each other. It is obvious that you are at a major turning point. You will be concentrating on long-term goals and putting more energy in building your fortunes. You can, however, expect some close persons to sway you or drive you out of your chosen path. There is no reason for you to value the advice of people whose knowledge and understanding is less than yours.
