Ganesha says you crave emotional excitement and a change in routine. You are bored with the status quo. You want to do something radically different and seek out people you would normally have no intercourse with in any way whatsoever. This has its dangers but you are ready for the fallout. You know what you are doing. You are impulsive but not dangerously rash. You break the rules and if you are a team leader you pioneer new and better way of doing things.
This is an interesting period with several possibilities. There are obsessions and indulgences and you are prone to compulsive behaviour. If you have addictions you may sink deep into the quagmire. You need to look at yourself with honesty and clarity. This is a period of introspection and self-analysis, and confrontations with the self. There could be altercations too, as others may how you a mirror and you don’t like the reflection.
There is more stability now and this can be an excellent period for all kinds of mental work. You plan for the future with decisiveness. You are positive, confident and determined to make something of yourself. You are not one to wallow in muddy waters for too long. You realise your mistakes and work on yourself. You realize that you have to work in a team and this sudden realization and humility are met with applause. There is work-related travel and business expansion.
You are moved ahead like the latest bullet train. You are disciplined and your critical faculties are sharp. This is an excellent time for business transactions and negotiations. You want to be the top gun, and that could be the only hitch. You are open to divergent views, as they invest in the larger vision. Ego drives are high and you attract arguments and altercations but you manage to get your way through in the end.
There are different and opposing trends this period. There could be confusion and uncertainty, new awareness and sensitivity, aggression, conciliation, withdrawal, competition, confrontation and self-assertion. You could act surreptitiously and face the consequences too. You also go looking for a guru and take recourse to yantra, tantra and mantra. There are expenses and family time, ill health and remission, generation, rejuvenation and eccentricities.
You are fascinated by every vista of life that opens before your eyes. There are surprises and upsets. Plans may go away and you will have to move like water. ‘The species that adapts to change is the species that survives,’ said Darwin. If you are rigid, you are stuck. In this phase you may embark on one course of action and then move on to something completely different. You are the lichen riding the ocean waves.
‘Truth is a pathless land,’ said J. Krihnamurti. Relationships are the prime focus now. You look for reliable, stable partners. Those in long – term relationships go about sorting out issues that may have caused possible rifts. You can be objective and you understand the realities of life. You do not make unrealistic demands and just expect partners to live up to their obligations. There is steadiness and sobriety in all your exchanges.
You make money and spend it. There are many new investments, holiday plans and new deals in the offing. You are a mover and shaker, filled with zest, zeal and energy. You want to be a person of renown, and the winter chill won’t dampen your inherent desires to excel. There are love and longing, fun, festivities, joyous moments and family reunions. Children bring happiness. There could also be an addition to the family.
This is a great period for physical activity, as your energies are high. You are filled with hope, joy and bonhomie. You are strong, vigorous, hard – working and determined. Your exuberance is contagious and it draws everyone around you in its sweep. You are not foolishly overconfident. You watch your step and take calculated risks. You live and love large. Success crowns you without a doubt.
There is travel on the cards. It may be time for a foreign holiday. You also look seriously at spirituality and go searching for a guru. You are looking for answers to life’s profound questions. Certain queries may never be answered, but ask you must. New vistas open and someone from a different culture may make a lasting impression on you. It needn’t be a romantic liaison but it could well change the way you look at the world.
You take a break from the rush of life and meet with your buddies at cafes and over dinners and movies. You visit art galleries and attend poetry readings and private screenings of offbeat cinema. If you are artistically inclined you find time for your creative urges. You take off into the woods and frolic with rabbits and foxes. You have been there and done that. And the winner of the rat race remains a rat. You want a clean break from it all. Ganesha smiles.
‘Instead of getting depressed or falling into guilt when we see what is wrong in ourselves, we need to say, Wow! Creator, thank you for letting me see my demons. Now, how can I go above them?’ said Karen Berg of the Kabbalah Centre. You may be inclined to identify your ego with your possessions and wealth. This can set tongues wagging and you could come in for some flak. You could also look at short cuts and unethical means to reach your ends
