December 16 to December 22
[ March 21 to April 20 ]
There is nothing you can do to protect yourself against sycophants and rumour-mongers. Old friends may be better for you than the new ones you seem to be surrounded with.
[ April 21 to May 20 ]
There are times when your desire to seek favours from your seniors becomes more acute. The only way to succeed in your mission is to catch their fancy rather than assert too much and annoy them.
[ May 21 to June 21 ]
Your future will get brighter with each passing day. The fact that your planets are proceeding towards the lustrous regions of your chart implies that there should be no shortage of funds and help from now on.
[ June 22 to July 22 ]
Never have your friends and associates shown such goodwill. In case of even heavy odds blocking your way, you should be adept at turning the tables.
[ July 23 to Aug 22 ]
There is no point in waiting and watching. Complacency is your worst enemy. The moment you slacken your grip someone else will steal a march on you. Priority matters should not be delayed.
[ Aug 23 to Sept 22 ]
You will be making efforts to learn a new skill and acquire as much expertise as you can. If a student, a grand success in your exam or project is fully assured.
[Sept 23 to Oct 22 ]
You may soon discover that time has come when you can make your presence felt. If you have an eye on a new venture, there should be no obstruction.
[Oct 23 to Nov 22 ]
Expect the existing scenario to take a turn for the better. You will make a long-cherished dream come true. There is no reason why you should not enjoy what you have been longing for.
[ Nov 23 to Dec 22]
The general trend of your stars is negative. With your day-to-day expenditure rising sharply, there will be no end to your worries. Thursday can be tricky on financial grounds.
[Dec 23 to Jan 20]
You need a push to take your ambitious plans to their logical conclusion. There is many a slip between the cup and the lips. You are seriously advised to be on your alert.
[ Jan 21 to Feb 19 ]
This is no ordinary period. If interested, you can try your luck in speculation, sale-purchase of stocks, investing, funding or loaning money. Even a defeat could turn into a stunning victory.
[Feb 20 to March 20 ]
The work could pile up. Your current progress could be hindered by new responsibilities. If you are on the lookout for a job, you will have to elbow your way through a crowd.

Born on

December 16

Your day-to-day spending could surpass all previous estimates but you will somehow, manage to keep-your head above water. A modest effort on your part is, however, not enough to pull out of the financial mess that you are mired in.

February-March are unproductive and wasteful months. You are perhaps unaware of the twists and turns that await you during June- July. If a change of residence is on your agenda, forget about it for some time. The best course is to focus on the overall picture and plan your line of action accordingly.

December 17

With Venus in the limelight, fun and merriment should continue to prevail. You will work towards achieving greater understanding with your loved ones. You can easily make new friends and make your life colourful.

Moments of love, laughter and joy are on their way. If unattached but eligible, expect a heart-warming understanding with your loved one which could culminate in wedlock. If already married, you can expect an addition to your family.

December 18

Mars, the fiery star, may incline you to be ambitious, overactive and assertive. You will remain virtually unstoppable of your work. The fame you are likely to earn may beat all previous records. Your bank balance will also remain as sound as ever.

You should be almost ready to take a leap into the future. Much depends on your ability to persuade others that you were following the right path. It is also very pleasant to observe that you are increasingly willing to do good for others. It will attract others and bring rewards.

December 19

A retrograde Mercury chasing Venus inclines you to make rash promises. Your other weakness is your tendency to put all your eggs in one basket. A younger family member will give good advice to you.

This is an opportune time to indulge in home-related activities, entertainment of guests and socialising with a renewed vigour. Whatever the shortcomings, you will face them all with your usual skill.

December 20

Your intense love for people close to you and your keen desire to benefit them by going out of the way will cost you heavily. Your reputation or reliability can be at the stake.

You are bound to be under immense pressure. You may fail to decide which way to turn. Developments which appeared rosy at the outset could fail to live up to your expectations. This is a tricky time and you are advised to keep this fact in your mind.

December 21

With Venus rushing towards ascendancy, you will remain in a jovial mood for most of the time your friends, associates and allies and even those who are new in your circle will be at your beck and call. Your sense of humour, your flexibility and your proverbial hospitality will make your social life a success. Should there be some misunderstanding or disagreement with a relative, the gulf could be bridged without much effort.

You will keep fun before work. Make sure that you donít volunteer to do an unfamiliar job at any time during the year as the chances of your making a headway are few.

December 22

Keep routine chores to a minimum and spare some time for your personal welfare. Some marked change seems to be on the anvil and you should be prepared for it. It is also a lacklustre period for bargaining, lending or borrowing. A sizeable number of planets controlling your finances are in an angry mood. Despite your endeavour to add to your existing income, there will be no marked change for the better. Donít depend on others for help, cooperation or even good counsel. It will be ideal if you could avoid travelling at odd hours.
