Your 2008 keyword is wiki

Cancer, your astrological position at work this year is advocate for the end user. While others focus on the bottom line, or how things work, you will be thinking about what people really need. Your attention will be focused on creating an environment that’s user-friendly. The catch is that you have to collaborate with others in order to do this.

Last year you may have begun a project with a lot of enthusiasm. When the inevitable bottlenecks presented themselves, however, you let them grind you down to a complete stop. This year, it’s important that you take another look and re-evaluate what really prevented you from achieving your goal. Perhaps the real bottleneck was you.

This year, remind yourself to focus on the big picture and not get bogged down in the details. It’s important to get the details right, but it’s even more important for you to reach the goal. You may have to give up some control to achieve this. Don’t worry. You will still have the last word.

Your success this year depends upon your ability to collaborate with others. This is not something that comes naturally. You are usually cautious about handing control over to someone else. In 2008, it will be important not only to ask for help, but also to accept help when it’s offered. You are going to need someone to open doors for you, because you’re going to have your hands full.

2008 will be a good year for travel. You will meet many new and interesting people who give you a new frame of reference. If you can’t hop on an airplane, hop online and talk to people living in different parts of the world. Someone in another country is going to play a big role in how you approach things.

Your keyword this year is wiki. Only through collaboration will you achieve your goals. If you can give up control and let others in, 2008 promises to be one of your best years ever. There’s a spotlight waiting with your name on it. Don’t leave anything unfinished.
