TIP FOR THE WEEK: Good week for thinking outside the box!

AQUARIUS (AIR) JANUARY 20 – FEBRUARY 18 Things are finally settling down as you become more comfortable with the pressures of your daily routine.

Although there are not enough hours in the day, you are coping well and moving forward faster and better than you had imagined. Your friends continue to bring sunshine into your life and your relationship with them is built on mutual love and respect. Your inability to put money aside is frustrating but it will take a little while yet before you are more financially solvent.

HINT: This is a good week for taking some time off to enjoy the quiet time of an evening or two at home.

PISCES (WATER) FEBRUARY 19 – MARCH 20 Your relationship with younger members of your family continues to run hot and cold as they can't decide what they want the connection with you to be. On the one hand, they need your help and support, while on the other they are trying to be adult and independent.

Rather than get upset, back off and give them the space they need. Don't worry, they won't go far. You enjoy the company of a wide circle of friends and this is a perfect time to plan a party.

HINT: Sunday and Monday are good days for working on a special assignment.

ARIES (FIRE) MARCH 21 – APRIL 19 Your writing and communication skills are improving and this is the time for organizing important meetings. There is so much information you wish to impart and rather than working one-on-one, gather a few people you trust to sit and brainstorm. In the weeks to come you will find yourself in a position to make a difference.

Your relationship with a sibling still leaves a lot to be desired, but it is improving so be patient and let things move at their own pace.

HINT: A door may close, but the window that opens will make the change very worthwhile.

TAURUS (EARTH) APRIL 20-MAY 20 As much as you would love to travel and visit exotic places, you have neither the time nor the money.

All your energy and thoughts are focused on your career, and although there are days when you ask yourself if it is really worth it, in your heart you already have the answer. The knowledge and experience you are gaining are invaluable and will stand you in good stead in the future. Financially you are doing well, but unfortunately are not in the position yet to put great deal of funds aside. Be patient.

HINT: The bond you have with your partner and/or mate is solid, even though you don't always see eye-to-eye on every issue.

GEMINI (AIR) MAY 21 – JUNE 21 Don't rely solely on your luck this week. It will take a lot more than good vibes to get the pile of work done that has been sitting on your desk for days. The time has come for you to realize that you just might need a little help. You know who to ask. The rest is up to you.

People living far away are on your mind and this is a good week to reach out and make contact. In the next few weeks your financial situation should begin to ease up and become more balanced.

That does not, however mean that you are completely out of the woods but can see beyond the forest.

HINT: Make plans to visit a sibling during the first half of the week.

CANCER (WATER) JUNE 22 – JULY 22 This is a perfect week for spending quality time with your partner and/or mate.

While, it is true you see things from a much different perspective, when you are together you are a team that is hard to beat. An open and honest conversation with another water sign will only strengthen an already strong connection. Don't be afraid to speak from your heart.

Financially, unexpected expenses continue to poke holes in your savings, but you have no choice.

HINT: Time spent at home working quietly on a project will bring you more joy than you expect. You finally have the emotional quiet space.

LEO (FIRE) JULY 23 – AUGUST 22 You are always ready to abandon your plans in order to reach out and help a friend or relative in times of need and this week finds you unusually ready to be of service.

Before you commit yourself either verbally or on paper, read the fine print and wherever necessary get the advice from an expert. Over the past few weeks you have begun watching your finances and cutting back wherever possible. If you continue in this vein you will have the money you need for that trip you are dreaming about.

HINT: Be patient with your partner and/or mate. They mean well but sometimes speak before thinking things through properly.

VIRGO (EARTH) AUGUST 23 – SEPTEMBER 22 You can talk from today till tomorrow, but if no one is prepared to listen then tossing and turning all night won't help. The time has come for you to take a step back and put your own needs first— and, more important, to walk away without feeling angry or bitter. You too were young once and had to make your own mistakes. This is a good week for socializing with old friends and simply relaxing and having fun.

HINT: Tuesday and Wednesday are good days for pampering yourself and taking care of personal matters.

LIBRA (AIR) SEPTEMBER 23 – OCTOBER 23 After making so many major changes in your life, it is completely understandable if you feel a little sad and exhausted. Few could have kept up the pace you were working under for so long. But, now you can take a step back and appreciate and enjoy a job very well done. There are so many people around you who wish to be included into your inner circle and the time will come very shortly when you will know who deserves to stand beside you and who doesn't.

HINT: Money and finances are always a source of concern, but you are holding your head above water and that is just fine.

SCORPIO (WATER) OCTOBER 24 – NOVEMBER 21 You know you have done the best you can and for now all you have to do is wait for the pieces to fall into place. In the meantime there are so many wonderful people around you who are truly prepared to guard your back and walk with you along the new path you have chosen. You may not be able to spend as much time with a sibling but the lines of communication between you are open and strong.

HINT: Even though you enjoy spending time at home, this week you will feel the need to get out and mingle with old friends and new ones.

SAGITTARIUS (FIRE) NOVEMBER 22 – DECEMBER 21 You know the worth of money and the value of the things you have been fortunate enough to accumulate. This week finds you very appreciative of all you have and, more important, of the people who stood by you along the way. At the top of the list is your partner and/or mate and this is the week to do something very special for that person.

Money matters are beginning to ease up but that does not mean that you can stop being careful.

HINT: Young members of your family would appreciate a little more of your time, so try to re-arrange your schedule.

CAPRICORN (EARTH) DECEMBER 22 – JANUARY 19
This is the week for pampering yourself— get a new hairstyle, go to your favorite restaurant, buy that outfit you have been wanting, or, even book a hotel for a weekend away to relax and have fun. You have earned it. Over the past few months you have been not only working overtime, but have been the first person to reach out and help a colleague and friend. When talking to a family member try to be patient as this person sees things from a much different perspective than you do and needs time to tell their story.

HINT: Money and finances continue to need watching but not as closely as they did even a month ago.
