TAURUS (EARTH)

APRIL 20-MAY 20

After weeks of waiting, the time has come for you to take a much more active role in your own life. Professionally you are a major asset and the more you trust your judgment, believe in yourself and have faith in your future, the better. This is a good week for setting up important meetings and stating what you want rather than just accepting what is being offered.

HINT: Time spent with an old friend will add joy and soon you will have to make a decision as to where you want this relationship to go.

GEMINI (AIR)

MAY 21 – JUNE 21

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!!! This is the week for pulling back and taking stock. You are surrounded by so many people yet still feel alone and rather lonely. As the days go by you will have the opportunity to re-evaluate some of your friendships and do not be surprised if one or two are eliminated from your list.

A lot of time and energy will be spent this week in and around your home as you are busy fixing, rearranging and planting.

HINT: Monday and Tuesday are the best days this week for you to take care of personal business.

CANCER (WATER)

JUNE 22 – JULY 22 Don’t let your insecurities take control of your life. Stay calm, believe in yourself and trust your intuition.

You not only have the tools you need to deal with anything that may come your way, but are stronger than you know.

Once you begin taking an active role in your own life, you will be amazed at just how small those bumps were along the way. A conversation with a younger member of your family will help you see things in a different light and, once again, you realize just how special your relationship really is.

HINT: Try to find some quiet time to work on an assignment that demands precision and creativity.

31 LEO (FIRE)

JULY 23 – AUGUST 22

No matter how hard you try, you simply cannot seem to save money and although you have cut back, the rising cost of living continues to eat away at your savings. You don’t mind working hard, but lately have begun dreaming of a vacation whereby you can walk away from some of the pressures which have been weighing heavily on you over the past few months.

HINT: Although everyone wants to be included inside your inner circle, you may not feel like socializing this week. Grab your new book, find a cozy place to relax and enjoy the silence of your own company.

VIRGO (EARTH)

AUGUST 23 – SEPTEMBER 22

Money and financial pressures continue to occupy your thoughts and you find it frustrating and aggravating that all your hard work hasn’t made the problem disappear.

Things are getting better and the stress is easing up, so be kind to yourself and trust the process. A discussion with another earth sign will not only be interesting but you may decide to open negotiations on a joint venture.

HINT: Time spent with a Cancer will be interesting as long as you respect each other’s differences.

LIBRA (AIR)

SEPTEMBER 23 – OCTOBER 23

So much is going on in your life these days that soon you will have to hire a personal manager. If not, then at least begin taking careful and precise notes for referral as the weeks progress. When reaching out to a friend for help, take into consideration that this person may not give you the answer you are seeking.

However, that does not mean that they don’t care or that they are indifferent to your situation.

HINT: You are in action mode and don’t have the time or patience to slow your pace in order to accommodate anyone else.

SCORPIO (WATER)

OCTOBER 24 – NOVEMBER 21

A conversation with a partner and/or mate may turn out much differently than you expected, but the time has come for an open, honest discussion where you can verbalize some of the feelings you have been keeping hidden. No matter what the outcome, it is always good to vent and clear the air. Professionally, you continue forging ahead and your reputation is beginning to open some important doors.

HIT: Money and finances are extremely important right now and decisions you make in the coming days will have a long lasting effect.

SAGITTARIUS (FIRE)

NOVEMBER 22 – DECEMBER 21

You are filled with energy and ready to move forward with your plans. After months of negotiations and planning everything is finally falling into place. Don’t hesitate to get the advice of people you trust, but keep the final decision for yourself.

A good judge of character, you know who you can rely on and who to avoid. This week you will be meeting many new and important people, but don’t worry, they will be charmed by your personality and very impressed by your knowledge.

HINT: Monday and Tuesday are good days for coming home early in order to spend some time with your family.

CAPRICORN (EARTH)

DECEMBER 22 – JANUARY 19

You certainly know what you want and need, and this is the week for making some very important decisions concerning your professional future. You have many options available to you and now is the time for asking questions and listening carefully to the answers you receive. Your disappointment in an employer is not new but your patience is wearing thin and it is getting more and more difficult for you to remain silent.

HINT: Take some time over the weekend to socialize with family and a few of your closest friends.

AQUARIUS (AIR)

JANUARY 20 – FEBRUARY 18

This is an especially busy week for you as your days will be filled with professional meetings, social functions and personal engagements. Time spent with an old friend is just what you need to relax and regain your equilibrium. For quite some time you have had the feeling that not only are you treading water but losing ground at the same time. The truth is that although you haven’t yet reached all your goals, you have gained enormous experience, met very important people and solidified feelings concerning certain aspects of your professional expectations.

HINT: All your hard work is about to bear fruit.

PISCES (WATER) FEBRUARY 19 – MARCH 20 This is a perfect week for beginning new projects, for taking on more responsibilities and for socializing in order to make new friends. For far too long you have been letting the needs of others limit your path, but now you are free and can make your move.

There are a few people who have stood solidly beside you and this is the week for taking the time to do something special for them.

HINT: In the weeks to come you will finally have the quiet emotional space you have been seeking and that is when you will do your best work.

ARIES (FIRE) MARCH 21 – APRIL 19 You have many questions, and although you are slowly but surely amassing the answers you need, you still have to bide your time. Money and joint property is, once again, a major concern and even though you are not prone to hesitate or take a back seat that is the best advice for now. Listen carefully, ask a few important questions and wait. Don’t worry, your time will come.

HINT: Your relationship with your partner and/or mate continues to grow and this person has become a serious source of moral support.
