MESSAGE FROM THE MASTER: Man goes on doing the same; maybe a slightly different situation, but nothing very different. Thousands of times you fall and still you don’t learn the single thing worth learning. You learn all kinds of things in life except the one thing, which can transform you, and that is the art of awareness, says Osho, the Zen master.
ARIES (March 21 - April 20)
The Chariot takes you forward progressively as you put business plans into practice and make changes in personal relationships. Family and children are happy and supportive as they prepare for a social event. An interesting and happy trip is on the cards. Health and wellbeing are important, as there is much to be done professionally. You are at your dynamic best to start new ventures and deal with people in control or government. You win in a competitive situation to prove excellence in your field of activity. A residential move or renovation proves to be a good idea. A Cancerian is loving and supportive at this point.

You achieve professional success with your own power and wisdom. Beware of a crafty and secretive person in the work area who is there for his own personal gains rather than the progress of the company.

VIRGO (August 24- September 23)
It’s best to be prudent and careful in all aspects of life this month. Just as the beautiful, delicate blossoms are protected by the large leaves its best to protect yourself from negative influences and disruptive elements. It’s not a good idea to disclose business plans and changes that you are wanting to make in the future as others try to discourage you or steal your ideas. Some assets need to be hidden from family and associates or they have unrealistic expectations. A slow and steady approach allows you to fulfill ambitions and achieve professional goals. Some secretive designs against you are unearthed and you are able to encounter your adversaries. It’s best to underplay your hand and keep a low profile this month. A natural, easy and simple approach brings better results than a clever and brilliant one. A Scorpio person supports you. Lucky number is 8. Good colour is deep purple.

AQUARIUS (January 21 - February 19)
The Prince of Wands rides in his flaming chariot of gold to instigate dynamic changes at work. You make progressive professional and personal commitments with sincerity and honor. You are blessed with youthful energy and enthusiasm but better guard against swift and impulsive decisions taken due to lack of time and patience. You are just and noble when dealing with staff and associates to gain their respect and appreciation. You are generous and giving in family and personal relationships.

Love and care from a special person brightens your life. Your social life is restricted to close friends and cozy evenings at home. Lucky number is 4. Good colours are forest greens.
