If we manage to inspire one person to 'hang on in there' or show a bit more determination, it makes our courageous act even more worthwhile. Have you inspired somebody in such ways?

While the pressure that Mars, in retrograde motion in your career sector has been under, especially when it comes to work/life balance tension is behind you, the lessons learnt couldn't be more important.

This is also a good day for looking beyond the money to get a better read on your financial needs and priorities.
