Tip for the week: Take your time, think twice, and if you still feel the same way then go for it!
DECEMBER 22 - JANUARY 19
You are still very busy and short-tempered; if you don't step back soon and take a deep breath, you may end up hurting the people closest to you - the people that you really love. It is up to you, as the ball is definitely in your court. This is a great week for all forms of communication, whether written or oral, and you will be at your best. So don't postpone that project that has been sitting on your desk for the past couple of weeks.
HINT: Be careful how you spend your money this week - if you don't really need it, then don't buy it.
JANUARY 20 - FEBRUARY 18
Your time will be divided this week between what you have to do for your family and what you need to do for yourself. The truth is that you really would like to close yourself off in your room and just sit peacefully while you ignore everyone and everything. Soon you will have more free time and will be able to adjust your schedule to suit yourself. Don't let negative thoughts ruin your week. You are definitely on the right track and deserve to enjoy yourself.
HINT: Trust your judgment and stretch your horizons.
FEBRUARY 19 - MARCH 20
You are so busy running, working and taking care of family, both old and young, that you have precious little time left for yourself. The middle of this week is wonderful for all things creative and should be used to further a project you have been thinking about. Old problems from the past still haunt you, but you have done your best so relax and let things play out according to their own pace. When speaking to a water sign, remember that this person honestly loves you and will do what he/she can to brighten your day.
HINT: Reach for the stars - they are waiting for you.
MARCH 21 - APRIL 19
This week you will be busy taking care of others and not thinking of your own needs. The time has come for you to sit down and carefully plot out where you would like to be 12 months from now and how you are going to reach that goal. Don't worry, you are not alone and many hands will be ready to pitch in and help. Family problems are still there under the surface, but things are much better than they were. When dealing with a person you come into contact with daily, just smile and continue along your original path.
HINT: You love to help others and are loved for it.
APRIL 20 - MAY 20
A lot of activity is expected between yourself and your partner and/or mate this week, and by the time the dust settles you will be pleased to note that you have come to an agreement that is agreeable to you both. The more flexible you are right now, the better. Before you agree to meet a friend for coffee, check your schedule and make sure that your time is really free.
HINT: Tuesday and Wednesday are perfect days for doing anything creative, especially if it involves working with your hands.
MAY 21 - JUNE 21
The time has come for you to take some time off and pull back on your overly crowded schedule. You are running around in circles trying to make everyone happy, and the truth is that you are exhausted. So next time, say NO and don't let them make you feel guilty about it. You are definitely entitled to some free time for yourself. Be careful while driving on Sunday and Monday, especially around your neighborhood.
HINT: Just because a friend doesn't call you doesn't mean that he/she isn't thinking of you. Pick up the phone yourself and say hi.
JUNE 22 - JULY 22
Although you are still concerned about your finances, the situation is far better than it was even months ago, and soon you will be able to set your financial worries aside and enjoy yourself. All your hard work of the past couple of years is beginning to bear fruit, and you can sit back and be proud of a job well done. Family and friends continue to be a constant source of support. There is tension in your home that can't be avoided, but your reaction to it can. Deal with what you can, and ignore what you can't.
HINT: Young members of your family continue to bring you joy.
JULY 23 - AUGUST 22
Professionally things are moving forward and you can begin to relax a bit. Changes, for the better, are expected and those closest to you are proud of the way you have handled yourself over the past 12 to 18 months. This is the time for you to begin a project that will bring you personal joy and satisfaction. You know what needs to be done, so put aside the time and reach for the stars. They are within your grasp.
HINT: Young members of your family are on your mind and close to your heart.
AUGUST 23 - SEPTEMBER 22
You are a wonderful friend and even though you can be stymied in minutia, those closest to you have learned to love you for it. Just remember to be as flexible as you can and listen as much as you speak. This is a good week for dealing with legal matters and for finding a middle-of-the-road solution. If that doesn't work, then go back to plan one. Your relationship with a sibling is better than ever, and now is the time for you to plan to spend time together.
HINT: Take a friend out for lunch and forget to look at your watch.
SEPTEMBER 23 - OCTOBER 23
There is so much going on around you that is out of your control, so stop eating your heart out and trust in the experts. The final outcome will come whether you stay up nights or not. And things are not nearly as bleak as they seem, so relax. Sunday and Monday are wonderful days for entertaining and being entertained. Try to keep to your schedule this week, and leave an afternoon or two free for yourself.
HINT: Before spending money on your home, make sure you have the right dimensions and color scheme.
OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 21
You have the feeling this week that you are in a rut and need something new and exciting in your life. Change can be good at any time, but for now you still have a lot of loose ends to tie up before you reach out and begin afresh. Your friends are important, and this is a perfect week for entertaining and being entertained. Before you let a conversation with a family member turn into an argument, count to 10 and then simply smile. You'll be amazed at the results.
HINT: Call a Cancer and make arrangements for coffee and a chat.
NOVEMBER 22 - DECEMBER 21
You continue to work overtime, but the truth is that you love it. This week, take extra care while driving and if you are tired then stop and get something to drink and/or eat before continuing on the road. Your family always is on your mind, even though you don't really see them as much as you would like. This is a great week for meetings, so check your calendar and go out and party.
HINT: When talking to a water sign, remember that this person is a lot more sensitive than he/she likes to let on.
