With Venus in the house of finance, professionally a roaring start ahead. Donít make rash promises. You will achieve your dreams.

Leo
[ July 23 to Aug 22 ]
No escape from increasing hard work. Stamina and self-discipline needed to remain calm.

[ Aug 23 to Sept 22 ]
A trying period for job-seeking Virgoans. They will tire themselves without getting anything. In matters of heart, chances of success are minimal.

[Sept 23 to Oct 22 ]
Cause precedes the effect but your case is just the reverse. So many surprises ahead whether you like them or not.
Scorpio

Pisces

Born on

December 28
No one can take you for a ride. People associated with you will appreciate your ideas, and plans. You will get unconditional cooperation from them. Life will be full of mirth during the first quarter. A long-awaited celebration may come off during the second. You will be climbing the ladder of prosperity during the third. Trusting strangers could, however, cost you heavily during the last one.

December 29
Even those who are sick of work-pressure will recover and make progress. Their attitude will be optimistic. They will improve in an area where they had lagged behind. Better times are just around the corner. Professional strain will minimise. If you are in a dead-end job, new avenues will open for you after January. Your assessment of people will improve considerably from March onwards.

December 30
A combust Mars will not stand by you. Check impulse to spend heavily. Despite efforts your tendency to overspread may be dominant. Check your impulsive bent of mind. A paucity of funds may continue to ail you. You will have to find means to supplement your income. If you fail to find any solution, it could leave you feeling on the edge.

December 31
This promises to be a favourable year. Good time to fix targets and achieve them easily. Your spirit of enterprise may be stirred. A cherished dream could be realised during the first quarter. The emphasis should be on health-care during the second one. Your social life will offer more opportunities to win friends during the third. Be cautious while travelling during the last phase.

January 1
A debility-prone Jupiter will inspire new dreams. You may think due to a philosophy of simple living and high thinking you can do no wrong. However, you may fail to live up to your reputation. Your nomadic instincts will receive a mild boost. If shopping, you will prefer luxuries than necessities. However, lay greater emphasis on ethical, moral and spiritual matters which you have so far neglected.

January 2
A period when the demands of your near and dear ones will baffle you. The excess of expenditure can be alarming but you will have no regrets at having spent on a noble cause. Much depends on your strategy. Organise your needs as thriftily as possible. This should be a period of simple living and not show off. If you move patiently, you will have no regrets.

January 3
Flexibility and willingness to accommodate others are your plus points. A good chance to grow during the period that is ahead of you. Be wise to cash good opportunities that await you. Donít feel upset if social life drains your purse. Take it in the right spirit. Avoid unreliable investment plans.
