CANCER (June 21-July 22)
You're at a high point in your visibility as a professional and as a contributor to society. People see you, and they are following your example. Therefore, you must live impeccably, as if you're being followed around by a television crew or as if your calls are being followed by a live audience. There is indeed such a thing as a reputation, and you're at the point where you can make genuine progress on establishing yours. In this moment, it's essential that you know your goals. Remember that a true career ambition is both about accomplishing something and becoming someone. So think in terms of both what you do and who you are growing into. Don't be deceived by the seeming chaos of the world. You are perfectly suited to be the person who both benefits from, and offers something useful in, this wild moment of history. Many, many people are confused about who they are, though you cannot afford that luxury. You have an advantage because you've been experimenting longer, you've made mistakes you've learned from and, most meaningfully, you're willing to try things you haven't tried before. You therefore need to persist in your experiment when necessary, and know when to change your plans so you can adapt to your environment and your personal needs. That said, be as consistent as you can be, and write the words "follow through" on your bathroom mirror.
