You will definitely feel more compassionate and sensitive about those things which affect large numbers of people. Favourable Date : Dec 14 Favourable Colors : Brown & Blue.
Virgo ( 23 August – 22 September ) – This time will cause you scattered thinking and some difficulties in expressing yourself. You need to take more care with what you say. Any important decisions or negotiations should be avoided at this time. If you get too greedy or over-confident, the opportunities will fizzle away, or you could end up with less in your pocket. You must remain conservative and maintain high morals in order to make the most of any offers or lucky streaks. You should really avoid arguments as your thinking is not so spot on.. This is not the time to fall in love. Favourable Date : Dec 16 Favourable Colors : Red & Violet.
Libra ( 23 September – 22 October ) – Important projects you had planned previously would be best undertaken in the first half of the month. There will be fewer obstacles to success. Other people, especially men and superiors, will not stand in your way and even offer valuable assistance. There should be opportunities coming your way to increase your wealth and gain more satisfaction out of life. Travel is a possibility with stars ruling long distance, or overseas journeys. New studies would be another good way to broaden your horizons. This is now the time to make unhindered progress and make your presence felt in the professional world. Favourable Date : Dec 16 Favourable Colors : Red & Yellow.
Scorpio ( 23 October – 21 November ) – Money is finally picking up for you. You might be able to go buy a few lottery tickets and get some money or just put some investment in shares. You will be a little off at work around the second week of the month. Start to think more out of the box especially when it comes to what you want. You have been in a little rut lately and you have to get yourself out of that. The third week is a good time to relax and unwind but then get back up on the track soon. .Money will start to act like a magnet to you anyway. Favourable Date : Dec 19 Favourable Colors : Yellow & Blue.
Sagittarius ( 22 November – 21 December ) –You have been dealing with so much and now you can just allow the freedom to be your true self. You will be hearing that you have been doing a great job and that things are paying off. People you wouldn’t normally expect to give you compliments would be lining up. Smile and enjoy, that is all you have to do. Your sincerity and confidence will guide you to move forward. You’ll be feeling a sense of needing to compromise out of desperation on several occasions. Put the brakes gently on over stressing or you could slide out of control of finding happiness. Favourable Date : Dec 20 Favourable Colors : Brown & Black.
Capricorn ( 22 December – 19 January ) – It is time to search for some new angle of the work that you have either already begun or to find something new completely. Pay attention to other opportunities that are blessing you throughout the phase of this period.. Consider participating in stock that you might not have considered, or starting a brand new creative project. There may be some unpleasant or uncomfortable feelings to handle, in relationships. Things can seem confusing and you could be questioned about the depth of your loyalty..It is through the welcoming of change to your working experience and relations that you will find intrinsic satisfaction. Favourable Date : Dec 20 Favourable Colors : Blue & Yellow.
Aquarius ( 20 January – 18 February ) – Be cautious this month with the way you communicate with your peers. You will find yourself in odd situations this week but remember that these are opportunities to learn and grow. This is a month of romance and bliss.Taking time to process new relationships and even new beginnings with old relations is the thumb rule. Make sure you give space and energy to your relationship because you may find your mind is more on work just now and it usually doesn’t bode well if you have too much professional commitments on your mind and your partner feels ignored. Favourable Date : Dec 19 Favourable Colors : White & Blue.
Pisces ( 19 February – 20 March ) – Your imagination and playfulness are in full play and possibly giving you the chance to do something you haven’t done or to do something you have been wanting to do for a while. Whichever it is it will be a lot of fun. This is the peak time for you to choose your direction and that you will have the full control. When dealing with a delicate work or financial time, rest assured that there is assistance coming your way that is going to lighten your load. It also reflects the coming together of forces, such as in a business proposition, starting a company, or even when seeking a loan. Favourable Date : Dec 17 Favourable Colors : White & Yellow.
