Those of you who are more comfortable with dreams and imagination will find that this is a time when you can easily access your creative genius.

All of this gets turned on its head on March 20, when you get an unexpected break or opportunity. You'll have to drop the "been there, done that" attitude and take a more hands-on interest in fostering the growth of your future happiness.
