Horoscope: Acquiring a skill will be more difficult than expected on the 9th. That's when the New Moon puts you in the path of a relentless critic. It will be hard to study with their disdainful voice in your ear. Stay as far away from this cynic as possible. If you're having difficulty mastering complicated concepts, be patient. Hire a tutor who is able to isolate the source of your trouble. With their help, you'll be able to push past this stubborn block and achieve mastery. On the 24th, the Full Moon marks an impressive turning point in your career. You'll be given a promotion or high profile position. This will come as a total surprise. It's been hard to know where you stand with an impassive employer. Finally, you'll discover just how much your boss really appreciates your contributions. Have fun at a party that is thrown in your honour.
