Kusum Bhandari on the week ahead
(January 20-February 18)
Be extremely wary of career-related propositions, no matter how lucrative. This isn’t a good time to take an offer, wait for detailed facts before deciding. It’s a good week to catch up with friends and family and you will be at ease with all whom you meet.
(February 19-March 20)
You’ll have to handle challenging jobs and tricky situations, for which you will be commended by your superiors and colleagues. Play your cards well and cultivate people in key positions. Your partner is also likely to be more co-operative and pleasant.
(March 21-April 20)
Those in your care want a share of your assets even as you want to make a fresh start. You need to realise your worth and know that all you have is your own. There’ll be money decisions to be made, but be confident that you’re doing the right thing.
(April 21-May 20)
Things will be favourable. Earlier, you were restricted by people and situations, but now you can act with authority and determination, and be appreciated for it. Your love life is likely to be affected, but you should be able to resolve the situation with a touching gesture.
(May 21-June 20)
When faced with occasional difference of opinion, try to deflect the situation with good humour. Social gatherings could be a forum to speak and you might enjoy it, and the attention it could bring. You might need to travel to settle old issues.
(June 21-July 20)
Settle matters that have been pending for some time. You should not depend on others for help, particularly if making more money is your objective. It is a favourable time for romance and quality time with loved ones. Keep a rein on your finances. It is a particularly positive time for artists.
(July 21-August 20)
There isn’t much pressure on you now. So, it’s a good time for creative work. It’s also a busy social season. Accept all invitations as they’ll be more enjoyable then you expect. It is an exciting time for romance, whether attached or single.
(August 21-September 20)
Go slow. The work you’ll be doing will need meticulous care. Don’t get rushed. You will want to relax and have fun, and so you should. It is a sentimental time too, as you are likely to connect with someone on a sensitive issue and share a poignant moment.
(September 21-October 20)
This could be a happy week for you, with a little too much excitement. But you will enjoy it and this will be a memorable time. You will enjoy company and should even take loved ones on an outing. However, try not to drive yourself to a state of exhaustion.
(October 21-November 20)
You will be besieged with invitations and in a position to choose. Go where you are sure you can relax and enjoy the company of like-minded people. It’s possible that a sound relationship could develop now. You’ll probably also combine business and pleasure.
(November 21-December 20)
Take all opportunities, personal or professional, to pay little visits as these could be extremely beneficial, informative and fortunate. People you are likely to meet on these visits or in the course of your daily life could turn out to be important contacts in the future.
(December 21-January 19)
It is vital right now that you outline your objectives and focus on them. You need to realise that you must complete everything you start and deliver on every promise you make. You also need to learn to pay as much attention to the small details and finer points of a job as you would to the big picture.
