Let your conscience be your guide, as one or two things may be useful. january 20 - february 18 Aquarius You may be ready to make a few key decisions concerning your finances, especially if the holiday season proved somewhat expensive.

Dating options may be more numerous now, so it’s worth getting involved in groups or clubs that reflect your interests and passions. Finally, a decision concerning your future may need careful thought. april 20 - may 20 Taurus Perhaps your biggest urge is to move into new territory. With a strong focus on your sector of travel and exploration, you may be looking for a change, and this is certainly reflected by other influences in your solar chart. Nevertheless, it’s better to tackle this step by step rather than leap into the unknown. Any misunderstandings you experienced may be due to Mercury’s three-week retrograde phase.

With luscious Venus dancing into your sector of communication on January 2, you could be very eager to reach out to new friends you made in recent weeks. Discernment is the key here, though! While you might be ready to embrace them all, some may make better long-term pals than others. december 22 - january 19 Capricorn You may find other people inspiring, bewitching, and sometimes confusing, but you certainly won’t be bored. They can also keep you guessing. However, you also have your own plans that need attention, so you might have to draw the line if someone seems uncooperative for some reason. Once you’ve completed your to-do list, you’ll feel much better for making a stand and taking control. With Mercury also pushing forward, any frustrations and delays can begin to dissipate. august 23 - september 22 Virgo With a focus on a more intense sector of your chart, you may feel moved to look deeply into patterns that have held you back for some time.

My career both as a solo performer and as the lead vocalist with the rock band Cold Chisel has made me one of the most popular and best-selling Australian music artists of all time. The combination of 14 Australian Top 40 albums for Cold Chisel and 13 charting solo albums, including nine No. 1s, gives me the highest number of hit albums of any Australian artist. I arrived in Adelaide, South Australia as a 5-year-old on 7 December 1961 with my parents Jim and Dorothy Swan and siblings John, Dorothy, Linda, Lisa and Alan. My brother John encouraged and taught me how to sing as I wasn’t really interested initially. Shortly afterward, my parents divorced. WHO AM I? ACROSS 1. Uncoiled 5. Earnest request 7.
