Leo, the lion
Your 2008 keyword is ROI

Leo, your astrological position this year is that of programmer. What does that mean? Well, this year you need to learn more about a concept called lean programming. It’s a paradigm that emphasizes optimizing efficiency. In 2008 you will find a new outlet for your talent and the changes you are about to go through require that you cut out any unnecessary wasted effort.

Last year you may have felt a little aimless. Perhaps your career goals were not focused or perhaps outside circumstances prevented you from reaping both personal and monetary rewards. 2008 will be a major turning point in your career.

This year you may move or even change jobs. Money will become an important focus — not so much for its own sake, but for what it will allow you to do. You may go back to school, attend a conference or get a new certification. You will meet new people that inspire you. Even if you decide to work from home, you will be surprised and delighted by the people you encounter online.

Your success in 2008 depends upon your ability to build in increments. If you are a list-maker, keep track of the steps you take. Those small steps pave the way for an incredible journey. Don’t worry so much about the destination. Where you end up might surprise you. Finally, you find a way to be creative on a daily basis and make money too!

2008 is a year to be practical. Cut out anything that does not support what you want out of life. Surround yourself with creative people who are financially competent. What you need to do this year is figure out whether you are utilizing your talents in a way that supports the lifestyle you want.

Your keyword this year is ROI. If you are not getting a good return on your investment of time and creativity, move on. You are especially efficient this year. You can have it all.
