to sort out long-term plans, and be relying heavily on the advice and
support of old and trusted buddies. Apart from few months during the
mid-year, you may be less sociable than usual. However, that won't
stop you digging in your heels very firmly, over matters of money and
security. Right reason or none, you intend to be in control and will

time for yourself in the second-half of the year to get the past into
perspective. That way you've more of a chance to forge the future you
want for yourself. A sudden surge of energy, vitality and a speedier
schedule during the middle months will keep you on your toes, never

says, a hard working second half of the year will keep you firmly
focused.

your time and generosity, then you'll get your rewards, in time,
financially and emotionally. A luckier time from late September to
mid-November will put the smiles back on your face in a major way.
