|Gemini, the twins
Your 2008 keyword is mashup
Gemini, your astrological position at work this year is database manager. Your ability to be logical, keep track of details and recall information will make you the go-to person when answers are needed. In 2008, you will find yourself looking for ways to improve the bottom line, both at work and at home.
Last year you excelled at juggling multiple projects, although you probably wished you had more control over setting priorities. Not to worry. 2008 puts you back in the driver’s seat once again.
This year your vivid imagination will be directed towards fiscal matters and that alone will turn heads. Combine that with your ability to organize as well as communicate effectively and you’ve got a winning combination that will pay off in more than one way.
Your success depends upon your ability to differentiate yourself from your peers or competitors. You know this intuitively, but sometimes you refrain from outright competition. Before summer, you may want to talk to people you trust and ask them to articulate just what it is that makes your particular skills so valuable. This is not the time to be shy. You need this data. It is what will give you the ammo and confidence to move forward with a project close to your heart.
Before the close of 2008, you will be credited with inventing something. It may be a new way to perform a routine task or it may be a new product or service. Whatever it is, you will be the one to put all the pieces of the puzzle together and come up with a fresh, unique solution to a problem that’s been bugging everyone for years. Kudos!
Your keyword this year is mashup. You will be the one to put two plus two together and come up with whatever answer is needed. Your challenge will be to build group awareness so your ideas become mainstream. Your practicality, logic and insight into how money gets made should make this a banner year for you. Just don’t forget to bang your own drum loudly.
