Life, Love & Career
I hope you have your elaborate list of resolutions ready because this year really is about starting over. Prepare to enter a brand new phase of your life. Chances are you may feel unsettled in the beginning, especially if things haven’t been so good in the past. But change, as you know, brings a whirlwind with itself. Take a deep breath and remind yourself the storm is about to pass! Things with your lover might be, if not difficult, testing. Give yourself the chance to heal, and the chance to learn. Work wise, it’s all about embracing creativity. No, you don’t have to be Picasso for that. This year is about tapping your inner spark even if you’re simply whipping up a salad. A passion you’ve nurtured for a long time is knocking at your door and begging for attention. It might be time to let it reach its full potential.

It’s all about the new — new things, new people, new wardrobe, new belief systems, and most importantly, new love. Dust the shelves, Aries! Make space for magical beginnings. A new connection might run so deep, it will redefine your relationship with yourself.




Life, Love & Career
A Taurus gets what a Taurus wants. This is pretty much your mantra when it comes to love this year. I have no doubt you’ll get exactly what you’re out to get. But remember to love yourself as well. Don’t let people or circumstances hold you back. If you’ve had difficulty trusting people, now is the time to work on yourself. But continue to be wary. Not everybody delivers what they promise; not everything is what it appears to be. Work wise, you’re bound by your own limitations. So have an open and honest conversation about what you can and cannot do. Allow yourself to step out of the comfort zone, at least a little bit. Your family and close ones promise to be a strong support system. Some of you may find a wonderful opportunity to collaborate with them on work matters.

It’s all about give and take, Taurus. Times may get hard and money may be tight. It’s okay to ask for help, especially from those who you have supported in the past.




Life, Love & Career
Oh, baby! You’re unstoppable this year. You seem to have planted all the right seeds in the recent past — seeds that promise to reach their full potential soon. But remember to keep the pace, in matters of the heart as well. There’s no place or time for the coy girl act this year. So express exactly how you feel and let yourself be swept off your feet. Work wise, it may seem like a lot is happening and at an overwhelming pace, whether you’ve got multiple tasks or one big project on your hands. You may or may not be able to catch your breath, but you will certainly love every bit of it!

Your career takes focus this year. And no matter what you do, there’s always room for improvement. So sharpen your skills, pick up a few along the way, and let yourself be mentored by the right people. What you put on your CV and in the bank today promises a closet full Manolo Blahniks tomorrow.




Life, Love & Career
Your lesson this year: who to put your trust in. If you’ve been let down, or worse cheated on by a lover, you may have learned to be on your guard. And that’s a good thing. Just don’t be too harsh on somebody who actually wishes to unpack and stay. The more you isolate yourself, the more you may be drawn to things that fill empty spaces but do you no good. Your career, on the other hand, may present you with a brand new opportunity, one that will be soul-satisying as well. Let it take you to a higher place.

Make this a heal-the-world kinda year. You don’t have to make a monumental donation or join the neighbourhood animal shelter (although if that’s what you have in mind, you absolutely must!), but reach out to people, help them, support them, and share with them what you can in your own capacity. It’s the secret to your inner peace.




Love, Life & Career
It’s going to be a fantastic year, Leo! Prepare to be swept off your feet. Whether you’re with somebody new or with the ONE, things are likely to progress to a whole new level so soon you won’t have time to catch your breath. You’re likely to be surrounded by the people you love, who by the way, promise to spoil you silly. Michael Kors isn’t going to cut it this year. A monogrammed Birkin for the lady, perhaps? While your career promises to shape up in the way you imagined, it’s going to be a long, tiring road to the finish line. So gather all your strength.

This year is about continuing the love and support you give your tribe. They’re going to need you to anchor them and reinforce their inner strength. On a side note, you may have to learn to be a little less passive and little more ka-boom. Opportunities will appear at your doorstep. It’s up to you to go grab them.




Love, Life & Career
The thing about excess baggage is it always does more damage than good. Don’t let it weigh you down. Unloading it in the trash — where it deserves to rot with anger, hate, jealousy, regret and other negative emotions — is the only way you’ll be able to invite peace and love. The good news is, this year is about you and everything you’ve ever wanted to do. Wander off into the mountains, understand the intricacies of brocade in Banaras or learn how to talk sexy in French. Work may present challenges that threaten to push you off the edge. Tap into your inner genius to for practical solutions.

If you feel like the Universe is pushing you around, it probably is. But rise from the ashes like the sexy phoenix you are. The good promises to outweigh the bad manifold. Speaking of which, you’re really going to find your sanctuary of Zen. Oh, and somebody to share it with. In other words, put a ring on it!




Love, Life & Career
Endings are the new beginnings, Libra! Welcome them. If a relationship feels like it is falling apart, let it. Then sweep away the dust. You will emerge a new person. That said, let the follies of those who have affected you remain in the bygone year. Be cautious about who you let into your space, but don’t distrust ones who mean well. What you do this year may or may not come with power and prestige, but it will bring more inner peace than you can imagine, whether you choose to crunch numbers or string pretty words into a sentence. Learn to tap into your reservoir of creativity. It will add a touch of pretty to everything.

You’re all about the finer things in life, whether it’s single origin Robusta coffee or custom Louboutins. Find a way to put Venus’s gifts to good use. Did somebody say wine connoisseur? Project Home Improvement will also be a win. Some of you may literally want to embrace your motherly instincts. The year may present its fair share of challenges too, but you’re a hustler at heart. And there’s nothing your million dollar smile cannot win over.




Love, Life & Career
If you’ve always wanted a fairytale romance, honey, you’re going to have to write it. Take charge, Scorpio. An office romance might in the works for some of you, so make sure you say yes when Arjun from marketing hints at coffee. As such, 2016 promises to be a I-can-hardly-catch-my-breath kinda year with so much happening around you; you might need to start maintaining a social calendar. Work wise, it may be the end of the road for you in the best possible way. If you’ve been thinking about quitting, changing your line of work, or making a monumental change, now is the time.

It’s all about intellectual pursuits and challenges, baby! Find the balance between yin and yang: your softer, feminine side with the ability to love and nurture, and your masculine side that’s fierce and unstoppable.




Love, Life & Career
You’re far too pretty to be carrying around all these burdens from the past. Let go, Sagittarius. It’s the only way to make place for a new and fulfilling relationship. You’ll be winning at life in calm, composed and balanced ways, having made peace with all the tribulations of the past. Did somebody say Mistress of Zen? Be sure to let this inner sanctuary guide you career-wise as well, else you’ll meet people who will drag you into their own hell.

This year, you’re a wanderer. A seeker. If there’s a little voice in your head telling you to take a leap of faith, listen to it. Expect sudden bouts of creativity. Your inner child is guiding you to get in touch with that spark. It’s all about finding new ways to express yourself. If and when you feel like you might falter, remember that help is around the corner. There’s no shame in asking.




Love, Life & Career
Relationships, like everything else in life, need work. Don’t give up just yet. You’re about to build something beautiful together, so allow yourself to hold his hand. You seem too wary of people in general. It’s a good thing to be cautious, but not everybody is out to hurt you. Your inner explorer will beg to seek expression this year. Give in to every whim. It will teach so much about the world outside and within. Just make sure you’re doing it for all the right reasons, and that you’re not running away from anybody or yourself. Career wise, there’s a lot of hard work to be done. It’s the year of apprenticeship. Despite the late hours, you will enjoy and be thankful for every bit of it. Just remember to be an opportunist lest you let a wonderful chance slip away.

The Universe is working with you, girl! This year, you can make anything happen. Remember to tap into your skills and resources. If you’ve been leaning towards spiritual practices, now is the perfect time to set out on that journey. You’re quite the wise one. Just learn to listen to your intuition.




Love, Life and Career
You’re really working your charm. Look at the boys you’re bringing to the yard! If you’re already coupled, expect to be spoilt silly. You get to have your way; just don’t get too distracted by all suitors lining up. Life is a rollercoaster. And this year, you’re going to experience your fair share of ups and downs. The bad news: things you’ve been working on may suddenly hit the speed breaker. The good? That’ll give you plenty of time to rethink your strategy. As such, inner peace is yours to keep. Career wise, you’re all ready to shine, Aquarius! A new opportunity is about to present itself. Take a go at it, and let your intellect show you the way.

You are your own best friend. And your own worst enemy. If there’s something stopping you this year, it’s probably your own bias. Repeat to yourself: limitations are for rookies! Ditto for comfort zones. Money is also likely to be on your list of priorities. But remember the difference between saving and hoarding. Sparks of creativity will jolt you out of inertia. Go find your calling!




Love, Life & Career
The thing about love is that it can make the most skeptic souls weak in the knees. Allow yourself feel love in every fibre of your being. If you’ve been playing Bridget Jones, chances are somebody new will come knocking from the most unexpected of places. So if your mum is trying to set you up with her version of Mr. Darcy, don’t let your skepticism come in the way. Either way, your relationship comes with the promise of balance. This is likely to spill over in other aspects of your life as well. Emotionally, you’ll be in a good place too. Looks like you and the Universe will getting along well. Work wise, remember to choose well. And always be on your guard. You don’t know who your enemy is or your ally.

Pick your battles wisely. Be wary of people who force you to revisit old scars. There will be times when you feel like you’re at your wits end. Financially, you may not feel strong. But help is right around the corner. And that’s something you should never forget.
