WHAT YOU NEED TO SUCCEED
Attention, applause, compliments, spotlights, and standing ovations. You get the idea. To truly shine, you need top billing. After all, you’re the top cat. Surround yourself with people who will supply you with plenty of praise. Also, you definitely do have a lion’s share of things to be proud about, but bail on bragging. This doesn’t mean you have to hide in the background. Others want to see you succeed, but compromise is key. Just allow others their time in the sun as well.
Everyone under your roof needs some time to feel like a star. Try to avoid upstaging the rest of your family members and there will be more harmony at home. If you want to hear praise from your parents, consider throwing some compliments their way, too. And rather than always behaving in a way that puts you first, practice sharing more with your siblings and offer to back them up when they need extra support.
STUDY STYLES THAT SUIT YOUR SIGN
Chances are, your impulsive nature has caused you not to bust open those books as often as you should. Rather than looking at all those assignments as a cage trapping you in your room, treat even that way dry subject matter as new territory to explore. That king of-the-jungle interest in exploration and staking out new turf can really take you places if you apply it to learning and homework assignments. Because of your proud nature, you are likely to rebel against someone telling you what to do -you much prefer being asked.
WHAT MAKES YOU A SOCIAL STAR
It’s pretty easy for you to make new friends because you’re very likely to have an outgoing and open personality. You have a need to be liked, so you love to be part of a big group. When you plunk yourself into the middle of the largest gathering of people at a party, within just a few minutes the whole focus of the conversation often turns to the topic you’ve introduced. While this is a trait that many admire, don’t abuse it. Most people want to actively participate in conversations rather than just be a member of the audience. Also, be sure to socialize in a way that won’t appear to others as though you always have to be the star.
YOUR HEALTHY ASTRO ATTITUDE
Choose workouts that also allow for socializing: tennis, dancing -even a couple of rounds of bowling! Schedule lots of short walks into your routine. It’s a great way to burn off calories and some of that nervous energy you tend to carry around. Like the caged lion, if you’re not given the chance to roam, you’re prone to anxious pacing! You should also stand tall and proud by paying close attention to your posture. Your competitive nature means you always play to win.
Sign up for a future that allows you to take center stage. If it’s not you yourself in the spotlight, then you’re likely at least to want what you’ve created to be on display. Just about any job in the entertainment field would allow you to shine. Also, think about becoming an artist, athlete, executive, or government official.
ASTRO ADVICE ALWAYS
Stay calm even though one of your oldest friendships may feel threatened.
Listen to what an adult you trust has to say. Focus on your studies.
Be loyal to an old friend and she’ll be there for you when you need her most.
WINNING MOVES FOR THE MONTHS AHEAD
A phone call could bring amazing news you r way. Plan to spend extra time with a sibling or other relative to help him or her through a rough situation. Also plan on spending more time than usual on your own. It may feel kind of uncomfortable at first since you’re such a social animal, but after your participation in loads of action-packed events, you’ll need to recharge your batteries. Listen to calming music and take plenty of “cat” naps.
