AQUARIUS (AIR)
JANUARY 20 – FEBRUARY 18
By the middle portion of this week you will begin to feel as if a fog has lifted. With clarity comes confidence and finally you can begin to make some serious decisions. Money and finances need to be addressed and in the weeks to come you will be offered a position which will be hard to turn down. Weigh your options carefully. Time spent with an older sibling is much more enjoyable these days.

HINT: Trust in yourself and you won’t go wrong.

PISCES (WATER)
FEBRUARY 19 – MARCH 20
With the planet Neptune coming ‘home’ again in your sign this is the time for taking a step back and deciding exactly what you want and need in life. The more honest you are with yourself, the better. You do have choices, so take your time and choose wisely. You may discover by the end of this week that you are spending too much money on things you really do not need. Try to avoid idle talk and gossip at work.

HINT: Time to reach out and be a friend to a colleague who could really use a helping hand.

ARIES (FIRE)
MARCH 21 – APRIL 19
This is a good time for paying attention to your own needs. It is not, however, the time for overindulgence and you will have to work hard to keep to a budget this month. People are attracted by your energy, sense of humor and organization skills. This is the week for working behind the scenes rather than for rushing out to stand center stage. The more time passes, the more you know who your true friends really are.

HINT: It will be a big mistake for you to take your partner and/or mate for granted.

TAURUS (EARTH)
APRIL 20-MAY 20
Lately feelings of doubt have been eating away at your self-confidence but all that is about to change as things begin to fall into place. All your hard work of the past year is about to bear fruit and with it your optimism returns.

Professionally you have stood your ground and worked very hard to achieve your goals. Although your finances continue to need watching, the situation is far from critical.

HINT: This is a time for patience, understanding and for sticking to a well-balanced diet.

GEMINI (AIR)
MAY 21 – JUNE 21
You are much more patient this week which will positively affect both your personal and professional relationships.

In your haste to reach out to another air sign you may reveal a bit more than you intended, so choose your words carefully. Your natural creative ability is hampered by failing to see the larger picture.

Take your time and pay attention to what a young person has to say.

HINT: By acting in a responsible manner, you will forge ahead professionally.

CANCER (WATER)
JUNE 22 – JULY 22
This is the week for putting old fears aside and for embracing faith—in yourself, in those you love and in a higher power.

The journey has not been simple but the rewards are great, so keep believing. Take the time to create a pleasant atmosphere at home…a place where you can rest, relax and enjoy some quiet time with the people you love.

HINT: Once you have made some minor adjustments to your schedule you will have the time to work on a special project.

LEO (FIRE)
JULY 23 – AUGUST 22
You always have time for a sibling and this week your love and understanding will go far to strengthen your special relationship even more.

Together you make a formidable team. Money disappears very quickly and if you don’t put your hands in your pockets and curb the flow you will find yourself in an uncomfortable position financially.

HINT: Take some time off to rest, meditate and simply recharge your batteries.

VIRGO (EARTH)
AUGUST 23 – SEPTEMBER 22
Money and financial security are extremely important to you, yet no matter how hard you try, you simply cannot manage to put anything aside lately. Rather than getting upset, realize that this is a temporary situation brought about by some unexpected expenses and will soon return to normal. Pay attention to the needs of others, especially your partner and/or mate.

HINT: A conversation with an air sign brings much food for thought.

LIBRA (AIR)
SEPTEMBER 23 – OCTOBER 23
This is not the time for self doubt or feeling unworthy.

Your lack of confidence is a temporary thing and will help you re-evaluate your goals. Managing your finances has become second nature, but you still need to pay careful attention to details. Wherever possible, take notes and refer to them whenever necessary. Time spent with a Scorpio will add spice to your life.

HINT: Try to be a bit more flexible now in order to easily adjust to various situations.

SCORPIO (WATER)
OCTOBER 24 – NOVEMBER 21
Your career and work take up much of your time and although you would rather be off enjoying yourself with the people closest to you, you need to settle down and put in the time.

Your work ethics are impeccable as is your good name and reputation.

Your creativity level is high and this is the week for letting go of old beliefs and reaching out to what it is that makes you happy.

HINT: You feel frustrated that things are moving so slowly.

Star Catcher SAGITTARIUS (FIRE)
NOVEMBER 22 – DECEMBER 21
Pressure from work and other r e s p o n s i b i l i t i e s have exhausted you and this is the week for taking a bit of time off to rest and relax. Find a pleasant corner and pick up your feet. You have earned it. Money and financial matters need to be attended to but the truth is that the situation is far better than you had anticipated.

HINT: When asked your opinion all you need to do is tell the truth.

CAPRICORN (EARTH)
DECEMBER 22 – JANUARY 19
You have worked very hard to achieve your goals and this week you may have to ease up a bit in order to catch your breath and regain your strength. So many people are willing and ready to lend a hand if and when you think it is necessary. For the time being you are managing beautifully on your own. Building friendships is easy for you as people are always anxious to be included into your inner circle.

HINT: Money and finances are not a problem as long as you continue watching your spending.
