Aries March 21st - April 20th
High drama, big romance, and a creative bonanza: this is the stuff dreams are made of this year. The world is your stage, the spotlight is your goal, and the love and appreciation of others is the air you breathe. Children, lovers, and admirers: these are the people who figure large in your life as this cycle progresses. You are willing to gamble on the future and you could discover yourself through creativity and self-expression. Increased confidence and a more outgoing manner may be the key that opens many a new door in your career.


Taurus April 21st - May 21st
Taking care of yourself and all that's yours becomes a high priority in your life in 2002. Security, setting down roots, establishing your ties with the past: these things are among the articles of faith that guide you. This is often a sign of growth in all things connected with family and property. Your own growth and success may be linked to questions of security - home and family, in particular. This may be a time during which you can get ahead by finding your limits and establishing a home base from which to move forward.


Gemini May 22nd - June 21st
Facilitating the transfer of ideas and information takes on a special priority for you this year. Writing, studying, and communicating play a bigger role in your life as a result. The belief that well-informed people will make the right decisions becomes an article of faith. Just remember: sometimes people know the right thing to do and STILL do something different! You may find yourself succeeding and moving ahead by using your mind and thoughts. Also, communication and research in all forms could be a key area for career growth.


Cancer June 22nd - July 22nd
A kind of Midas touch is signalled by the new cycle dawning in your life in 2002. Prosperity and security take centre stage in your thoughts; a gentle but committed conservatism brings you all kinds of good things. Take care of the material things, and the spiritual will take care of itself: that's your orientation. Growth and success could be tied to your possessions or to the way you possess and respond to the various ideas and impulses operating in your life now. You could benefit through material support and possessions.


Leo July 23rd - August 23rd
Faith in yourself and your future is emphasised this year. There is the feeling that anything is possible, leading to new ventures and a clean break from the past. At its best, this is a very positive and optimistic new cycle in your life, but at times, overconfidence can border on foolhardy bravery. Don't burn your bridges behind you! Your career may be tied more to your appearance and how you come across to others now. You may find that success comes by concentrating on your outward manner - the way others see you.


Virgo August 24th - September 22nd
Mysticism, sensitivity to the needs of others, and an awareness of karma (the link between the present and the past): these are your paths to spiritual growth in 2002. Addressing these issues brings you gain and satisfaction at many levels. You are more tolerant of differences and have a greater understanding of human frailties and shortcomings. Helping those who cannot help themselves - and getting such help if you need it - is an essential lesson. There's a guardian angel or mentor to be found if you need one, and you may have the opportunity to play such a role for someone else. Self-sacrifice and an understanding attitude on your part could have far-reaching effects on your own life-path and career. A little long-suffering and restraint just now could really pay off.


Libra September 23rd - October 23rd
Innovation, reform, and idealism are your paths to growth and gain this year. New, futuristic ideas are part of this, but it's much more than that: putting them into practice is essential because this is much more than empty idealism. A break from the past and a willingness to flaunt convention are what stir you. Idealism gets brought down to earth now. Friends who share ideals band together, work together, and find pleasure in making a difference - and the experience itself is worthwhile, apart from the achievements. Friends, group projects, and community concerns could play a key role that effects your career direction. Altruism and humanitarian efforts can affect your work and life-path.


Scorpio October 24th - November 22nd
Respect, status, and achievement are central goals for you as a new phase begins in your life this year. Creating a structure to empower and maintain your ideals and principles becomes a high priority, an article of faith. By taking on greater responsibilities of this kind, you become an inspiration to others. Ambition unlimited always ends in defeat, and ambition takes centre stage now. Achievements that win you reward and recognition are yours for the making - but you must make them happen, you cannot simply wait around and expect them to appear full-blown. You could develop a knack for being in the right place at the right time, and you may find that you have friends in high places. Work and career should be a primary focus during this period. An opportunity to make good decisions, clear choices, is yours. You are at your most practical, and what happens now may have a lasting effect on your life direction.


Sagittarius November 23rd - December 21st
Faith, optimism, and a yearning to explore all kinds of new horizons: these are some of the focal points in your life in 2002e. Travel, education, and other ways to stretch your horizons open new doors of opportunity. Religious, philosophical, and cultural matters are likely to have special appeal for you now; transmitting ideas on a broader scale brings gain. Travel and mental development at high levels are major themes in your life. This is a time to broaden your horizons both intellectually and spiritually. Education, publishing, broadcasting, legal and political interests, and advertising offer opportunities, if you are on the lookout for them. A bout of philosophy or even a little religion could have an enormous effect on your career during this time. Lasting values (whatever you find to be true and lasting) can guide you now, opening up avenues that have remained blocked.


Capricorn December 22nd - January 20th
The emphasis in 2002 is on fixing what is broken or unhealthy, thereby giving it a new lease on life. This is more than one person alone can handle, so the co-operation of others is essential. You give up something in order to get or create something, and you may not understand the reasons why at the time. Sex, money, power, and vitality become key issues. Career moves may depend upon your cutting through some of the fluff and really taking care of business, getting down to your most practical. Ridding yourself of excess may be a key move.


Aquarius January 21st - February 18th
The ties that bind, the harmonious integration of opposites, the perfect balance: these are the keys to your greatest opportunities this year. Marriage and other close personal relationships tend to offer bright prospects, and you have a deep yearning to experience the fulfillment they can bring. Close relationships offer a lot of potential for growth and good fortune. A marriage or other partnership can raise high hopes and give your spirits a boost. People close to you are optimistic and have good prospects. Relationships, whether partnerships, personal, or the social scene in general, are very important this year and can have a very decided influence on your career and workplace. You may find that a more impersonal attitude is the key.


Pisces February 19th - March 20th
"To serve and protect" is the motto that best fits the cycle that dawns in your life during 2002. Taking better care of such material concerns as work and health becomes an article of faith. You see the big picture where these things are concerned and realise that it can only come together when all the details are in place. Sometimes, in trying to get these details all lined up, you might lose sight of your objective. Remember: look beyond the trees to see the forest. Right now, the key to career moves involves attending to nagging details - whatever you have neglected and put off. Attention to matters of health and efficiency are important, too.
