What can inventors and entrepreneurs expect in 2010? The numerals that make up 2010 add up to 3 — 3 being the number of new growth, rebirth, and personal recreation, as well as an energy that promotes massive political, financial, military and societal changes with new paradigms of thought and social conduct. Accordingly, 2010 should be an exciting year for innovation, start-up businesses and rejuvenation of existing businesses. 2010 hot innovative forecasts focus on “sustainable” machinery including green technology, energy, transportation, housing and construction, and oceanography.
Pisces (Feb 19 – March 19) In mid January 2010, your sign moves into position to be the celestial favorite with many changes on the horizon. For inventors and entrepreneurs the first half of 2010 is busy with creative opportunities and growth. However, sometime during the middle of 2010, a partner or other close business colleague seeks to take control, and having the foresight to protect your creative contributions is extremely important. By the end of 2010, there is additional stress in your business and it would be wise to take a proactive role or seek help to manage these stressful situations. Famous Pisces: Michael Jackson (Entertainer), Kurt Cobain (Sun, Mercury, and Venus in Pisces), Albert Einstein (Physicist), George Harrison (Musician), Michelangelo (Artist, Scientist), Aidan Quinn (Actor), Dr. Seuss (Writer), Sharon Stone (Actress), and Elizabeth Taylor (Sun, Mercury, and Mars in Pisces).
Aries (March 20 – April 18) Finances should be improving by the middle of the year; however, your career and earnings continue to be on the sidelines for most of this year. Opportunities present themselves for travel, with an old friend, or old partner. 2010 is an emotionally intense year for you. Look to invest in your dreams and involve only those you trust to prepare for 2011.
Taurus (April 19 – May 19) Finances continue to be challenging, and it will be important for you to do something creative. This creativity could be outside your career – as your family, home life and relationships are most important in 2010. Stay true to yourself and follow through on your responsibilities. You will want to work this year and next to strategically position yourself for 2012 which should be full of change, prosperity and personal accomplishment. Famous Taurus: Charlotte Bronte (Writer), John Muir (Naturalist), Queen Elizabeth II (British Royalty), Immanuel Kant (Philosopher), Robert Oppenheimer (Physicist), Jack Nicholson (Actor), Leonardo da Vinci (Artist), Sergei Prokofiev (Composer), Barbara Steisand (Singer), Guglielmo Marconi (Scientist), Jack Schwartz (Psychic Healer), Ulysses S.

Truman (President), Karl Kraft (German Astrologer).
Gemini (May 20 – June 20) This is going to be a “fast forward” year with very little time for “re-play”. It is important that you pay attention to details and follow up on responsibilities as there is very little time for you to correct mistakes if an opportunity presents itself. Family, career, relationships, education, and partnerships all need you to reflect on values and ideals that have mattered most over the years. While change is on the horizon, it is difficult to know how this will manifest. Be careful of too much change. Your finances tend to be strongest at the end of 2010, but require your attention. Famous Gemini: Queen Victoria (British Royalty), George Washington Carver (Botanist, Inventor), Claudio Monteverdi, (Composer), Ralph Waldo Emerson (Writer), Gene Tunney (Pugilist), Bennet Cerf (Writer), Queen Mary (England Royalty), Henry Kissinger (Statesman), Bob Hope (Entertainer), John F.

Lee Bailey (Attorney), Jacques-Yves Costeau (Ocean Explorer), Gene Wilder (Actor), Joe Montana (Sports Figure).
Cancer (June 21 – July 21) Your artistic side is red hot in 2010 and you’ll want to protect your work as your family and friends could seek to take advantage of you. Continuing to invest in and to grow an existing business should be worthwhile and provide much personal reward. Famous Cancer: George Orwell (Writer), Ross Perot (Entrepreneur), Gilda Radner (Comedienne), Thurgood Marshall (Supreme Court Justice), Henry Thoreau (Writer), Nikola Tesla (Scientist), Arthur Ashe (Athlete), Georgio Armani (Designer), Sylvester Stallone (Actor), Robin Williams (Actor).
Leo (July 22 – August 21) The end of the first quarter of 2010 is your time to make yourself known at work and in the world. Your creativity is wonderful in 2010, and you will find yourself doing a lot of behind the scenes work. The middle of the year is a time of change and growth. While finances are solid throughout 2010, new financial opportunities will come your way and you’ll want to build strategic agreements.

Virgo (August 22 – September 21) This year, you will continue to grow in your profession with opportunities for others to nurture or mentor you. However, work will be intense and stressful throughout most of 2010. If you feel a bit over your head, take time to meditate and find balance with your home life and career. Decisions you make now will likely have lasting impacts and are worth careful consideration.
Libra (September 22 – October 22) Keep your financial decisions confidential from extended friends and family as there is potential for arguments or quarreling. The success of your investments depends upon innovative financial decisions and upon following a budget. Creativity, artistic pursuits, photography and multimedia work are all potential personal growth areas that could provide opportunities for commercial success.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 20) If you have been planning something in your professional career, this is the year to make your move. However, political undercurrents might present obstacles, so pay attention and be mindful of potential control issues. Towards the end of 2010, unfinished business, perhaps real estate, will come back to you and provide a beneficial opportunity.
Sagittarius (November 21 – December 20) Creativity and luck are on your side in 2010. Finances should be good, but will fluctuate over 2010 so be mindful of a budget. Towards the end of the year, share your dreams with loved ones. During this time, you are lucky and anything can happen. You’ll need the emotional support of loved ones to stay true to yourself.
Capricorn (December 21 – January 19) Finances are going to be volatile at times, but overall, finances should be better than 2009. Direct your energy carefully as family and career will put enormous stresses on you. In the second quarter of 2010, you may encounter manipulation and control issues. May is a time to tighten the belt. Your career path takes some unexpected turns this year. The last quarter should be a time of financial growth. Towards the end of the year, you may need a vacation to recover from the roller coaster that this year brings. Remember that work will be there for you when you return.

Salinger (Writer), Isaac Newton (Scientist).
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18) Change is inevitable in 2010, and there may be a need to barter or outsource with others to balance finances in 2010. Finances will stabilize in July or August, and thereafter, finances should be good over the next several years. So, if outsourcing with others requires you to do something that you do not want to do, then remember that it is probably in your interest. In December 2010, your career path changes and is filled with a newly found energy. Famous Aquarians: Edwin Aldrin (Astronaut), Christian Dior (Designer), Jack Nicklaus (Athlete), Lord Byron (Poet), Virginia Woolf (Writer), Douglas Macarthur (Military Leader), Paul Newman (Actor), Wolfgang Mozart (Composer), Oprah Winfrey (Entertainer), Franklin D.
