Lifestyle column: the Zodiac and Good Resolutions

The Zodiac and Good Resolutions: with astrology, it is possible to decipher our behaviour or to get a glimpse of the future. This is a theory which cannot be systematically tested. On the other hand, one may wish to follow an easier path, which puts into practice the principles listed in astrology textbooks. In a way, this is precisely the type of practical exercises that we suggest in this Lifestyle column.

We recommend that you follow our advice with both a light and observing mind. Beyond entertainment, the aim is to understand how each of us behaves in various fields; thus, we can better define and fathom, by deduction, how we have developed our natal predispositions. In addition, why wouldn't we be able to guess the talent(s) which we could harness in the future, according to our astrological profile.

The following information is given for signs in their purest form. Depending on the case, it is advisable that you check your planetary dominant or the sign of your Ascendant, the position, quality and aspects of the significators of the area involved, and if applicable, the position of the planets associated with it. For instance, for family affairs, examine the 4th House and its ruler, as well the Moon; for romance, examine the 5th House and its ruler, as well as Venus, etc.

The large number of books we have read, and more particularly, the experience we have drawn from the study of thousands of charts, urge us to be cautious. However, we thought that it may be interesting to provide a few concrete indications, which will turn out to be accurate, quite often.

Aries, Aries rising, Mars dominant, or strong 1st House

Good Resolutions for Aries, Aries rising, Mars dominant, or strong 1st House

With the enthusiasm which is typical of Aries, when it comes to writing a new page, you jump at the opportunity to take good resolutions on the occasion of the New Year. But since you are not inclined to ponder for hours over the consequences of your actions, with due respect to spontaneity, you may go overboard. Therefore, if you hope to be shortlisted, you'd better target your choices seriously. Your energetic nature prompts you to resume or to intensify your sports activities. Take the time to think before picking a suitable discipline you can practice full steam ahead, for you are neither patient nor assiduous. Speed sports, jogging, or even fast walking across the city are for you. In a different style, try not to fly off the handle at trifles, you who are sometimes touchy and hot-headed. Obviously, you have difficulty in repressing your true personality, but all you should do is smooth things over!

Taurus, Taurus rising, Venus dominant, or strong 2nd House

Good Resolutions for Taurus, Taurus rising, Venus dominant, or strong 2nd House

The New Year does not catch you off guard, because you enjoy taking stock of the past year. However, do not dwell on your failures or on your disappointments, since this propensity may be harmful. As far as good resolutions are concerned, what you need to do is to get back on the right track after having forgotten dietetics and overeaten during the New Year festivities. Therefore, in January, bid farewell to tasty poultries, foie gras, and great vintage wines. The overall trend is towards detoxification, and your epicurean side is requested to remain silent for a while. Console yourself by taking care of your waistline, and adopt a strategy which offers you several moments of pleasure. Otherwise, you will not cope. Fortunately, you feel more comfortable when your must make an effort at work. For instance, review your resume, or toil in order to finish off a particularly big project. Here are a few excellent resolutions for you.

Gemini, Gemini rising, Mercury dominant, or strong 3rd House

Good Resolutions for Gemini, Gemini rising, Mercury dominant, or strong 3rd House

A good way to start the year would be to keep your curiosity on the alert but without spreading yourself too thin. You are aware that one of the criticisms often aimed at you is that, although you are smart, sociable, and funny, you are restless and you keep on zapping more quickly than is believable. Therefore, in 2015, you must stick to the tried and tested "Think twice before you speak". Of course, it is out of the question to turn you into a stickler for control. It is mainly about avoiding making blunders which end up backfiring on you. There are many potential geeks among Geminis. Therefore, set up a ritual. Press the off button at some specific moments. You cannot spend your life on line, on the phone, or in front of your iPad. You know that the world keeps on spinning, and you must accept that it can carry on without you. Along the same lines, because you always want to be quick, you are sometimes absent-minded and careless. In short, be more composed and calm.

Cancer, Cancer rising, the Moon dominant, or strong 4th House

Good Resolutions for Cancer, Cancer rising, the Moon dominant, or strong 4th House

Fortune favours the brave! On the occasion of the New Year, pamper yourself, and be daring. If there is a zodiacal sign which more than any other one can force itself to take action, even in this threatening world, it is you. Stop seeing evil signs and dangers everywhere, for by staying in your shell, you can only become more vulnerable and increase your fears. Moreover, given your sometimes frenzied imagination, you tend to invent horror films which paralyse you. Here is another clue for you who care so much for other people and for your family. For once, try to exercise some salutary selfishness, and think of you first and foremost. No, you are not at the service of everyone. You are not forced to cook nice little dishes to treat your kindred's hearts and stomachs. You do not need to look after the children or to take charge of their comfort. Let people manage by themselves, and be your best coach.

Leo, Leo rising, the Sun dominant, or strong 5th House

Good Resolutions for Leo, Leo rising, the Sun dominant, or strong 5th House

If two words are needed to sum up the guidelines you ought to follow in 2015, it would be «fewer expenses». Due to your thirst for glamour, you often lose sight of the prosaic reality. What is the point of driving a Porsche or an Aston Martin and having a bank overdraft? What is so exciting about swaggering with outrageously expensive Stilettos that nobody can notice in the winter cold streets, when they do not end up broken (like you who are broke) in the mud? The other possible good resolution is to be more concerned about other people. Of course, you remain the central character of your life, but you must not forget that Leo is very generous. Therefore, pamper your kindred accordingly, either by sending out invitations to your loved ones, or by offering your energy and your catching enthusiasm. As far as your career is concerned, waste no time, get ready, and take advantage of your natural assurance.

Virgo, Virgo rising, Mercury dominant, or strong 6th House

Good Resolutions for Virgo, Virgo rising, Mercury dominant, or strong 6th House

In great form right from the first days of the year, you take advantage of this period and plan your programme. Therefore, the advice we give you is quite different from what is suggested to the other zodiacal signs. For once, let go. In our modern world, it is useless to try to set appointments, tasks, or objectives for the next twelve months with so much meticulousness. Which does not mean that you ought to fall into the opposite extreme consisting in organising nothing at all. Give yourself some leeway... or give it to the members of your entourage. Among your other manias, it is well known that you pay utter attention to health and to orderliness. Therefore, it is a good time to consult your dentist or to tackle unavoidable administrative chores. What you have done does not need to be done any more, and you will feel relieved. Heed your legendary wisdom and, well, be crazy. Allow some mess, or even create some havoc in your life. You will see that you can survive, and this will do you a lot of good.

Libra, Libra rising, Venus dominant, or strong 7th House

Good Resolutions for Libra, Libra rising, Venus dominant, or strong 7th House

Flat in the city, or house in the countryside? Snow sports or sun in winter? Blue or grey coat? Did you recognise yourself? Well, you suffer from a quirk typical of your sign, which is indecisiveness. After having shilly-shallied and hesitated, you waste a lot of energy, but you may also miss a few nice opportunities. Therefore, dare to make a mistake and to be flawed and even, why not, to offend people. Adopt the good resolution to always look at the positive side of everything, think of some compensation, and then get it off your mind. Move on, and do not uselessly dwell on nostalgia. Similarly, it is difficult for you to turn down an invitation or a proposal. You are among those who feel compelled to frequent the café at the corner of your street, to go to your mother-in-law's place, and to attend the most boring cocktail parties for political or social reasons. For once, pay no attention to what people may think of you.

Scorpio, Scorpio rising, Pluto dominant, or strong 8th House

Good Resolutions for Scorpio, Scorpio rising, Pluto dominant, or strong 8th House

People say that you have a strong character, which may be a polite way to say that you have a bad character… In 2015, back off once in a while. You need neither to grit your teeth to show that you are a go-getter, nor to be aggressive to avoid that someone treads on your toes. Stop your paranoia. No, the whole world is not conspiring against you. It is maybe your highly strung, tense, and surly attitude which triggers unconscious reactions. Take the trouble to smile to receptionists or to the mailman. Moreover, avoid being caught in situations where you may lose your temper. In short, be nice. Go to work on foot instead of undergoing traffic jams. Decide to withdraw into yourself if you feel that you are about to throw a tantrum. Do not push yourself too hard. Due to stress, you may smoke or drink too much and harm yourself. You should get around these issues by pampering yourself.

Sagittarius, Sagittarius rising, Jupiter dominant, or strong 9th House

Good Resolutions for Sagittarius, Sagittarius rising, Jupiter dominant, or strong 9th House

Since you are optimistic, you are convinced that 2015 will be even better than 2014. And you do not imagine, not for a second, that you will not keep your resolutions. Indeed, you want everything! With your mania to envision everything on a large-scale, you believe that you will get a promotion, practice a sport three times a week, travel, and save money. Hum... Although you sense that something may be amiss, you are unwilling to restrain yourself. Without falling into a modesty which would be a constraint your temperament cannot bear, you should get round it. Define your five top objectives for the year, and visualise the benefits you can draw from them once you have reached them. For example, if you are dreaming of a safari, forget the luxury handbag or the new computer. If you really cannot tighten your belt, both literally and figuratively, then there is not much choice left. Find an extra source of income if your finances are a problem, or on the contrary, reduce your work time if you want to practice a sport intensively. In any case, everyone knows that you will find a way to be happy.

Capricorn, Capricorn rising, Saturn dominant, or strong 10th House

Good Resolutions for Capricorn, Capricorn rising, Saturn dominant, or strong 10th House

In your life philosophy, the peak of a mountain is never an end in itself since there is always a new mountain to climb. In other words, you have not waited for the beginning of the year and its many toasts to take your good resolutions. You seem to constantly be under the pressure of your own demands which are sometimes too hard to meet. What if you decided that in 2015 your overall approach will be less serious? For instance, if you feel that you make no more progress in a given area, try your hand at a new sports or intellectual activity. You will realise how good it is to break your routine. Do you need a challenge? Add a new string to your bow. However, if you are determined to stick to seriousness, try to allow a whiff of gaiety into your workplace. Be more open with your colleagues. You are so concentrated on your objectives that you become a loner. Perhaps the good resolution you should keep is simply to love...

Aquarius, Aquarius rising, Uranus dominant, or strong 11th House

Good Resolutions for Aquarius, Aquarius rising, Uranus dominant, or strong 11th House

To take good resolutions? One can straight away imagine that you are frowning because it seems so conformist and boring to you. After the season's greetings shambles, this is a chore that you do not readily accept since you fiercely stand up for your freedom and loathe constraints. You may retort that your best good resolution consists precisely in making no more New Year's resolutions, especially those you have no intent to keep. However, you are curious and geeky. You surf websites and social networks in order to sense what is being practiced. And after a while, you end up finding interesting tracks that you adapt to your own style. For instance, you change the date or the duration of these resolutions. Your altruistic nature may prompt you to advocate a cause dear to your heart. Humanitarian projects, protection of minorities or animals, the associative field suits you perfectly well.

Pisces, Pisces rising, Neptune dominant, or strong 12th House

Good Resolutions for Pisces, Pisces rising, Neptune dominant, or strong 12th House

nstead of good resolutions, you prefer magical thoughts or wishful thinking. It is certain that expressing your objectives clear and loud may have a positive impact on the achievement of your dreams. However, be careful not to fall into reprehensible passivity, because at times you are too impressionable and you see symbols in everything. Do not forget that you must play the lead role in your life and be proactive. If you are considering a job shift or a few improvements in your daily life, you should adopt an objective and pragmatic approach. List your longings, and update your resume even though you must request the services of a specialist. Learn Spanish if you feel like working in Latin America. Lastly, do not allow people's emotions to affect you. Although it is nice to emphatise with others, remain focused, and do not constantly stray from your path. This has nothing to do with selfishness. This is just an application of the principle that one must begin by loving oneself if one is willing to be able to be more... generous.
