Aries: Ganesha says a lot depends on biorhythms and other influences too. Astrology never compels. Plus, remember, this is a general reading and I do not have your personal chart. This can be a period of contrasting emotions. You look for salvation. Old wounds open their hoods. You go looking for a guru and take recourse to yantra, tantra and mantra. You take time out from work and family and may do something completely different from the norm.
Taurus: ‘Fiction gives us a second chance that life denies us,’ said Paul Theroux, the novelist. Your mind is in a million places all at once. You are simply unable to be precise. You cannot put pen down to paper. You are all thought and no action. You cannot walk the talk. This is a phase of deep anguish as you are unable to activate your thoughts. It is an impotent period. There are expenses and many domestic challenges.
Gemini: The leak in the boat is finally fixed. You are back on terra firma. The winter sun is scorching the bones and you realise that time is flying. You have to get cracking before it is too late. You get back to the business of making a living. It’s a tough choice but there is no room any more for indulgences. Those in jobs work double shifts and freelancers spread their net wide. You have to make both ends meet and prepare a nest egg too.
Cancer: You are all pumped up and raring to go. In the mood you are in, you can perform miracles. Nothing is beyond you. You reach for the stars and may even touch them on tiptoe. There are awards and rewards, applause and kudos. You are the toast of your peer group. This is a fantastic time for creative folk and those in the visual arts. If you are also looking to cleanse your soul, you will succeed. You are in the quest for the holy grail. Ganesha urges you on.
Leo: Jung, the great analyst, said, ‘Show me a sane man and I will cure him.’ You are living out your inherent contradictions in splendour. You wear them on your sleeve and could be easily the most misunderstood person on the planet now. Your emotions are bubbling over like a volcano erupting. At home, the health of elders will be a cause of concern. Those in committed relationships take bond to new heights.
Virgo: There is powerful intensity propelling you. Sadguru Jaggi Vasudev, today’s popular mystic says, ‘There is security in repetitive life patterns, but there are no possibilities, no growth.’ You realize the import of his words. You want to change the status quo, you want to challenge everything that has been said and said again down the ages. You want to flirt with danger, even kiss a cobra on its hood like they do in Thailand, or eat broken glass, or walk over the Niagara Falls on a tripwire.
Libra: ‘An ant on the move does more than a dozing ox,’ said Lao-tzu. You find new ways to tackle the issues on your plate. There is success, and money too. You win applause. You also spend time with social work and may help with the less fortunate. You lend a shoulder and an ear where necessary. You are the toast of your neighbourhood as you espouse causes common to all. You excel in group discussions, contractual negotiations and conferences.
Scorpio: You live and love large. You make money by the bushels and spend it too. You play the field and are caught in the deep coils of amour. Nothing makes sense to you anymore but the sweet fragrance, however fleeting, of your beloved. This is a great period for those in realty and the stock market. There could be an addition to the family, possibly an adoption. At the very least, you may bring an exotic pet home. Ganesha smiles.
Sagittarius: You scale new heights. There are expenses, ego drives, passions, altercations and misunderstandings. You stand your ground on flimsy issues and take even the most trivial arguments to heart. This doesn’t fetch you brownie points and you will have to examine your core to see what has disrupted it so much that you flinch and retort at the slightest perceived disagreement. You play the field. Youngsters will be tough to rein int.
Capricorn: You are with your buddies, be it the boy gang or the girl gang or the mixed gang. It is party time and you are not one to miss out on the fun. You could be travelling too, and letting your hair down on the Riviera or some other exotic locale. You are also in line for a windfall, possibly an inheritance. This is a lucky period. You strike gold in the most barren spaces. Bob Marley said, ‘I have no education. I have inspiration. If I was educated, I would be a damn fool.’ You are inspired to take the moment to dizzy heights. Ganesha joins you.
Aquarius: You are in a philanthropic bent of mind. You want to serve others and there are no full stops in your yearning to do so. You want to give back to society and the stars support you in all your endeavours. You have the endearing softness and sentimentality in your sign now and there is new love, fellowship and selfless giving. You could put Mother Teresa in the shade in the mood you are in. I shall end with a quote from J.Krishnamurti: ‘It is only when the mind is completely quiet, free of conflict – it is only then that the mind can go very far into the realms that are beyond time, thought and feeling.’ Ganesha wrings his hands in thrall.
Pisces: ‘A scholar who cherishes the love of comfort is not deemed to be a scholar,’ said Lao-tzu. You want to be a person of renown, a person of letters, someone society can respect for his / her knowledge and erudition. But you may have a long distance to go. You need to traverse the razor’s edge, you need to get out of your comfort zone and get scarred. It is only after you emerge from the plain of struggle – like a caterpillar that becomes a butterfly – that you can delight in the prowess of true empirical knowledge.
