CAPRICORN (EARTH)
DECEMBER 22-JANUARY 19
You have a great deal on your mind and many options to choose from. Better to be slow and methodical than to rush into a situation that could cause problems at a later date. This is a good week to reach out and ask for help – something you rarely do. But too much information can be overwhelming and keep you from getting the job done right. Be patient with your partner and/or mate, as this person is dealing with issues of his own at the moment.

HINT: The weekend provides a perfect opportunity for you to rest and recharge

AQUARIUS (AIR)
JANUARY 20-FEBRUARY 18
Always thinking ahead, you are busy making plans for your future. A conversation with a water sign may not bring you the answers you were looking for but will give you the information you need to hear. Those who know you best know just how serious and responsible you are, and this week you will have little patience with people who don’t keep their promise. Financially you continue watching your money and now have enough to put something aside at the end of each month.

HINT: Shake off doubts from your past. You aren’t there anymore.

PISCES (WATER)
FEBRUARY 19-MARCH 20
This is a week filled with meetings and social gatherings, and you will have to plan your schedule carefully. You have little patience for waste – be it time or money – and will have to establish rigid boundaries if you wish to get everything done properly and on time. Your family always comes first, and unexpected events during the middle portion of this week may force you to readjust your schedule as once again your assistance is required.

HINT: Think carefully before making any major commitments on Tuesday and Wednesday.

ARIES (FIRE)
MARCH 21-APRIL 19
A conversation with an earth sign will bring you important news and help you to make a decision concerning your career. Before giving your reply, take the time to discuss the situation with your partner and/ or mate. This person is always looking out for your best interest and will help you to see the broader picture. Pay attention to your finances this week, as unusual spending may wreak havoc on your bank balance.

HINT: An elderly member of your family misses you and would like to spend more time in your company.

TAURUS (EARTH)
APRIL 20-MAY 20
You prefer to take your time, and although you may feel that you are more of the tortoise than the hare, you never forget and have a vast fund of knowledge at your disposal. Willing to take the time to ferret out the most infinite piece of information, you are serious, responsible and very dependable in both your personal and professional lives. Try to take some time this week to simply relax and remember that the glass is really half full.

HINT: Things may not be going exactly your way at present, but be patient… the end result will be worth the wait.

GEMINI (AIR)
MAY 21-JUNE 21
Thoughts of change continue to be on your mind, and as the weeks progress you will begin to put some of your ideas into action. This is a good time to get some expert advice; however, the final decision will be yours. Mistakes from the past are not forgotten, nor are the lessons learned.

Professionally your good name and reputation precede you as people continuously turn to you for advice and information. Money and finances still need to be watched closely, even though your situation is improving.

HINT: It will be best if you can give your partner and/or mate a little more breathing room for the first few days of this week.

CANCER (WATER)
JUNE 22-JULY 22
A great deal is going on in your life these days, and now is the perfect time to sit down with your partner and/or mate to discuss your feelings and plans for the future. This person sees things from a different perspective, and their advice is always worthwhile.

Financially you have to watch your spending carefully for the next few weeks if you wish to stay out of debt. Unexpected delays in payments accompanied by irregular expenses will force you to be rather circumspect now.

HINT: Take a bit of time off from your busy schedule to relax with family and good friends.

LEO (FIRE)
JULY 23-AUGUST 22
A great deal of thought is going into your work and what you wish to accomplish over the next few months. There simply don’t seem to be enough hours in the day, but as the weeks progress, you will be amazed at how much you really can do once you put your mind to it. A conversation with a Capricorn will bring new and exciting ideas, so pick up the phone and arrange a meeting.

HINT: So many people depend upon you, and no matter how hard you try, you simply cannot keep everyone happy all the time. Instead, try to keep yourself happy for a change.

VIRGO (EARTH)
AUGUST 23-SEPTEMBER 22
Just because you think you are right doesn’t mean that you really are. Take a step back and try to see things through the eyes of your partner and/or mate. This person doesn’t have to agree with you in order for you to know they care. Sometimes by disagreeing, they are being your best friend. Although your financial situation is strong, a shortage of liquid cash is expected over the next few weeks, so plan accordingly.

HINT: This is a good time for setting up a meeting with a close friend in order to do some serious brainstorming.

LIBRA (AIR)
SEPTEMBER 23-OCTOBER 23
You continue to work overtime, and this week you should try to cut back a little in order to spend some quality time with a special person. Together you make a formidable team, and it has been a long time since you felt so much in sync with anyone. Financially you are managing not only to hold your head above water but to put some aside for the future. Friday and Saturday are good days for setting some time aside to speak with a sibling. You always feel better after one of your chats.

HINT: Reminiscing is good.

SCORPIO (WATER)
OCTOBER 24-NOVEMBER 20
Interruptions by neighbors, siblings and just well-meaning friends will not only keep you from getting your work done, but may have you burning the midnight oil into the wee hours of the morning. For some time you have had the feeling that you are in a rut and no matter how much you try to change the status quo, something or someone always appears to mess up your plans. Don’t worry. Even though you don’t have a pencil in your hand, it does not mean that you are not writing and planning and thinking.

HINT: If you forget the diet for a few weeks, you won’t have to feel guilty.

SAGITTARIUS (FIRE)
NOVEMBER 22-DECEMBER 21
Money and finances are taking up a great deal of your thoughts, energy and time right now. You know you are on the right path and moving in the right direction; however, it might take you a little while to convince your partners and colleagues that your vision is the right one. The good news is that they believe in you and trust you, so relax. Time spent with your family is just what you need in order to relax and catch up on some much-calledfor sleep.

HINT: Delays are expected, so go with the flow.
