Michael Buble and Deadmau5 have been honoured for their songwriting talents in their home country.

Jazz crooner Michael picked up two gongs - the international song award and another in the pop/rock category - for his track Hollywood at the Society of Composers, Authors and Music Publishers of Canada (SOCAN) awards in Toronto.

Meanwhile, electro-house act Deadmau5 - aka Joel Zimmerman - was given the international achievement gong in recognition of his worldwide success.

Folk rock guitarist and singer-songwriter Bruce Cockburn received the lifetime achievement award.

SOCAN's Eric Baptiste said: "Original music brings joy to Canadians. It's essential to our national pride and culture. Our songwriters and composers continue to create music that is being played both at home and around the world, while our publishers work diligently to expand the markets for Canadian music. We're proud to congratulate all of the SOCAN Award recipients for their accomplishments."

Gemini:

Be scrupulously honest at work. If you make a mistake, own up to it. Bring the matter to your superior's attention. You don't want anyone else to suffer from this setback. There is a chance you will be dismissed from your duties. Remain philosophical if this happens. The Universe may be trying to put you in a different direction. Find a line of work that resonates with your value system. It's not enough just to be earning. You should have an emotional investment in the work you perform.More
