You have worked your butt off and are finally getting the recognition that you deserve. Don’t forget to pat yourself on the back. Nothing wrong with tooting your own horn.

Feel free to take your time deciding which offers you want to explore. A rum for sipping to success is the Chairman’s Reserve Rum coming in with aromas of tobacco and cloves baby.

Go in with Brugal Extra Viejo Rum. The Dominincan rum is aged up to eight years in ex-American Whiskey casks.
Cancer – (June 21-July 22)
You know what needs to be done, now it’s time for action. That is sometimes the hardest part, especially in a Covid world. There appear to be a few roadblocks in the way of your goals. Negotiate with someone who may be causing the issue or a person that may be able to help. Stay focused on the prize. That will keep you going when you hit a bump in the road. Roll up your sleeves, now get to work. A good go to is the Admiral Rodney Royal Oak Extra Old Rum. This rum is aged in bourbon casks with aromas of toasty oak, chocolate and spice, oh how nice!

Questions are swirling around areas of the heart. To stay together or not to stay together, that is the question. You already know the answer.

Scorpio- (October 23 -November 22)
You may not be seeing eye to eye with one of your friends. It happens. There’s no way to agree with someone all of the time. It is what it is. Handle the situation with love and an open heart. Time to think about where you are spending your time and energy. Also time to make some investments. Put some money aside for the stock market or for a savings account of some sort. In the long run you will be so glad that you did. Sip to the future with Flor de Cana 18 Year Old Rum.
Sagittarius- (November 23- December 21)
Saying goodbye is never easy. It can have our emotions all over the place. Allow yourself to feel anything and everything. Don’t hold back. Get it all cried out if you have to.

You are going through a bit of a transition at the moment, but then again who isn’t? So many things keep coming up as priorities. Which one do you choose to focus one? Oy to the vey! Take a deep breath. You got this. There’s nothing that you can’t handle so focus on one thing at a time. You don’t have to have it all figured out or how you are doing to do it all. Don’t let things overwhelm you and it will all work out. Get into a bottle of Havana Club Añejo 7 Year Old Rum, it’s a taste of Cuba in a glass.
