In your career, your path ahead might be tumultuous with tight deadlines and difficult superiors, but your diligence makes up for it. You have small successes along the way, so be sure to live in the moment and celebrate them as they come. In love, there are those who will toy with your feelings so it’s best adjust your romantic expectations. This year, you will also have the Illness Star in your sector, so you might want to avoid extreme sports and watch out for work hazards.
