W E E K L Y   F O R E C A S T              ABHIJAT
Aries
[ March 21 to April 20 ]

Combust Mars makes you reckless with funds. Be careful before committing yourself to any financial venture. Donít buy impulsively.

Taurus
[ April 21 to May 20 ]
With Venus in the house of finance, artists, sportsmen, mediapersons, builders will get promotion or a raise.
Gemini
[ May 21 to June 21 ]
Taureans are your best friends. However, Cancerians, despite their sweet assurances, are tricky and should be avoided.
Cancer
[ June 22 to July 22 ]
Moon is a key force to reckon with. So donít agree to the second best. There should be no compromise. Monday is a jovial day.
Leo
[ July 23 to Aug 22 ]
You cannot tackle more than your competence. Depend on your rationality to make your presence felt. Be patient about your ambitions.
Virgo
[ Aug 23 to Sept 22 ]
Unruly elements are creating hurdles and forcing you to take a back seat. Snub rumours let loose by them.
Libra
[Sept 23 to Oct 22 ]
You cannot fight destiny. Your stars, however, advise you to adopt a nonchalant approach.
Scorpio
[Oct 23 to Nov 22 ]
A combustible Mars makes you act first and think later, which is holding you back. A showdown on cards, if you donít take tempting offers with a pinch of salt.

Sagittarius
[ Nov 23 to Dec 22]

Dominant Jupiter, your sign-lord, makes you ambitious, over-active and assertive. You will be unstoppable and earn unprecedented fame.
Capricorn
[Dec 23 to Jan 20]
Good time for service-oriented Capricornians. Saturday-born ones could be winners even if they opt for a risky venture.
Aquarius
[ Jan 21 to Feb 19 ]
Your stars indicate mixed trends. Benefic ones make you feel good but advise you to be polite. The malefic ones warn against foisting views over unwilling friends.
Pisces
[Feb 20 to March 20 ]
For Thursday-born social life will hum. For Saturday-born, an assured golden opportunity could vanish.

Born on

January 18
You seem to be in a hurry to move ahead with determination. You think you know all the facts and cannot falter. But be cautious. You associates may try to pester you or put you in the wrong from April onwards. You will embark on a lucrative project during June-July. You will, however, gain by travelling during the end part.

January 19
The future is rosy. Those having progressive ideas will be lucky and start some expensive domestic projects. If you feel you are stuck in a rut, now is the time to act. Overcome the past. Your stars are stunning but if you think you are passing through a tough phase, donít feel low. When you are certain that luck is on your side, you should not wait. Act at once.

January 20
Maintain a grip on domestic affairs without upsetting the people you live with. Focus on work and you will see the results soon in the form of monetary compensations. Your planets are offering clarity on one hand, and ambiguity on the other. Weigh the pros and cons and decide what is best for you.

January 21
Your powerful planets, including the Sun, are conglomerating with Mercury, your sign-lord. So opt for the tried and tested ways. Act with caution. To ensure security should be your first priority. Your intention to please others may be genuine, but you may not gain anything by doing so. It is, however, good for you to desist from making a song and dance about your achievements.

January 22
Your ability and enterprise are coming to the fore. You may find it difficult to satisfy people who seek favours. But listen to their complaints patiently. Improvement on the home-front should start during the first quarter. Fresh choices will come to you but be cautious to select the best one during the second. A much-awaited family celebration will be on the cards during the third. A health problem could, however, crop up during the last one.

January 23
You will gain more importance and establish yourself as a much-sought-after person among friends. The charismatic influence of your stars may increase your energy and enthusiasm. You could do more than one assignment at a time. The most auspicious period that brings you into the limelight may start from July onwards. You can pose a threat to all those who confront you from October onwards. Tread carefully during the end part.

January 24
With increased mobility and rush of work, pay attention to your health. You can fall prey to the vagaries of weather. Do not push yourself too hard. Instead of wasting your energy on trivial matters, save it for important obligations. You will face more work with less comfort during June-July. Clearing the backlog will be your first priority during September-October. On no account, you should burn midnight oil during the last one.
