Arvind Kejriwal of AAP says that they are entering politics to change the system, I am not sure of this, but I am sure they have opened a new career option for many: POLITICS. Interestingly, nowadays one question mostly ask me is—Can I enter politics? If you think, this question comes from fresh entrants in work force, then answer is ‘no’. Many who are experiencing a mid-career crisis and also many who are experiencing a growing sense of uneasiness that this work was not what they wanted to do with the rest of their life and thanks to movies like ‘3 Idiots’, they listen to their inner voices. Be it doctors, engineers, lawyers, NRI’s (especially them), and businesspersons…..the list is long. I think this is reflection of change. In my perception; there comes a phase in life, when some want to explore choices that they feel passionate about, some may want to reflect on the meaning of life, and some may decide to deal with psychologically unfinished business. Whatever may be the reason but Aam Aadmi Party win has brought new career possibility on horizon for many (again I am saying this on my own work experience, maybe I am wrong, so please do not feel offended if you do not relate to this). Corruption, inflation, unemployment, good governance and financial security may be the concerns but now some may vote for a new career possibility, after all AAP win has shown a way for aam admi, a common man. You may witness many localized RWA’s, social activists, etc taking keen interest in local problems (this sounds good!). On a lighter note, I may add, for a political career, in future, you may need a bachelor's degree in political science; electoral politics; administrative competence and communication abilities and yes, may even require an entrance examination (as always is in India), what say???

December 2013 monthly forecast
ARIES: Planet Mars rules over your sign. Financial matters may be on your mind now, perhaps you are thinking and making plans for future and that may include probably, buying your dream house, investing in business or maybe you need money for your children. Your ruling planet, Mars, transit indicates very busy days ahead. There may be stress with people you work with, or people you employ, be at home or work and that too probably when you have deadlines to meet. You tend to get pulled into people pleasing, avoiding conflict by trying to make everyone happy. This can be a recipe for burnout. Whenever we reach a personal limit and life doesn’t turn out as we hoped it would, it is best to let things happen as they are meant to. This means directing your energy just at the right places and sustaining it there. Stay motivated and you will bounce back. Plus minus five days close to 13th, when planet Saturn will hold hands with planet of luck, Jupiter, are probably the best days of this month, if you’ve got something to sell, publish, launch, sign a contract, begin sales or marketing campaign or may be sign some important legal papers.
LUCKY COLOR: Peach.
TAURUS: Planet Venus rules over your sign. Six months from 3rd are special for relationships and marriage. If single, you are in the mood for love forever-style and may find your life partner. If already married these are best to sort out difference, if any, with your spouse, so good are planets in helping you. These six months are also special for signing lucrative deals or contracts. Saturn’s position in your solar chart indicates a period when everyday life is more duty and less fun. You may have to work very hard to achieve your goals. You need to make a conscious effort to focus on the good because this is what allows all of us to appreciate our life. On 13th, planet Jupiter of luck holds hands with planet of stability this harmonious aspect helps you do joint projects, business or do some work in partnership. Only problem is that planet of love, relationships and money Venus turns retrograde (backward) from 21st until January 31, which could mean a challenge. Typically, as per Vedic astrology, when planet Venus is retrograde, it is not an ideal time for marriage. For those of you who already have set marriage dates, fear not and have faith in destiny.
LUCKY COLOR: Red.
GEMINI: Planet Mercury rules over your sign. Planet Jupiter of good luck has been visiting your sign since May 31st and it will remain in same sign until June, 2014. This is the planet of change for betterment, whether you feel it or not, life is changing for betterment. Sometimes, when we are making big plans we tend to undervalue our health, which is so wrong and two months from 3rd carry the same message. It is time to rev up your health and fitness routine. Something important is reaching its peak near 17th bringing with it endless possibilities and opportunities in your life in general. Provided of course, you have been working for something to reach fruition now. These dates close may put you in spotlight and may make you extra sensitive ad emotional too. All month your home, property and family matters will be important. It is a possibility, that you may change house or probably go for house renovation and if this does not apply to you then, may be you have many guests. However, know there is a possibility, however remote, of added tensions too if you live with family, it could start to feel a little crowded. Work load may increase and personally you may for some reason have to shoulder familial duties too. Balancing work and personal life may take its toll on your health. It is really strange, many times we believe we will be happy and fulfilled once we achieve some career goal or find marital bliss or buy new car/house but only to discover later that after the initial excitement settles, a tremendous emptiness sets in. What I am trying to say is ----stay calm and peaceful at all times.
LUCKY COLOR: Brown.
CANCER: Moon rules over your sign. Cancer, what an amazing month you have for love and romance. You are in for an exciting time as you will meet many new and old people and may be, yes may be, you will meet someone special and exciting too.

If, Cancer, you do come to this kind of situation that I am describing, make sure you’re taking a constructive proactive approach. Pray for God’s blessings as everything in our life happens for a reason and have some profound message inwardly we are reaching and struggling to acquire new perspectives in our lives. Divine planet, Jupiter, holds hands with disciplined Saturn, on 13th; this is a time for greater understanding and rebuilding life with your family members. Cherish each moment of happiness, intimacy and laughter. Change in life is constant. This is “the law of life,” which is why I believe nurturing each and every happy moment is so important. If you have children, this period will be important for them too in some way.

You can use Mars energy to do work that you may otherwise find difficult. You don’t have to win every argument. In life, it is easy to get locked into a reactive mindset and get lost in circumstances and of course this is more difficult but in long run adds meaning and dimensions to our lives, think about it.....Exciting news about your career dates close to 17th, signal something important that you have been trying and working for very long time will reach its fruition stage. On 13th, a supportive Jupiter and disciplined Saturn can pave the way for a big career opportunity. However, there is small problem, from December 21st through January 31st, Venus, the planet of money will turn retrograde (backward).
