VIRGO (EARTH) AUGUST 23 – SEPTEMBER 22

The time has come for taking matters back into your own hands and working on projects which will be beneficial to you personally, professionally, and financially. You have so many plans in various stages of development and will very shortly realize that you have spread yourself too thin. Either ask for help or cut back in order to keep your good name and reputation.

HINT: A friendship with a water sign is becoming serious and now is a good time to pursue the relationship.

LIBRA (AIR) SEPTEMBER 23 – OCTOBER 23

Although money and financial matters are rather stressful at the moment, the situation is under control. As the days and weeks progress, you will discover other avenues of income which will ease your mind and your bank account. Your partner and/or mate may not always understand your motivation, but by standing firm and speaking confidently you will be amazed at just how quickly you are able to smooth out your differences and work together towards reaching a common goal.

HINT: Be patient, the journey is worth it and the end is sweet.

SCORPIO (WATER) OCTOBER 24 – NOVEMBER 21

You have a lot of strength and energy this week and now is the time for really rolling up your sleeves and getting things done. Enough contemplating, concentrating and considering! If you need it—keep it and if not then throw it out! That includes all the people who are pulling you down and sucking the joy out of your life. This is your time and you can’t be weighed down by unnecessary baggage.

HINT: After Sunday you should seriously start arranging important meetings and setting up a plan to move you forward to achieving your goals.

SAGITTARIU
S (FIRE) NOVEMBER 22 – DECEMBER 21

Take some time off to seriously consider your options. You know what you need, you know what you have to do and all that is left is to quietly sit down and start making lists. Once you are really organized you will be amazed at how quickly all the pieces fall into place. Take some time off to spend with your family. They are getting rather tired of waiting for you to notice them.

HINT: Choose your friends wisely and think twice before sharing your thoughts. Not all the people you come into contact with daily are happy with your success, but don’t worry…you have earned every good thing that is coming your way!

CAPRICORN (EARTH) DECEMBER 22 – JANUARY 19

A problem with a co-worker or two is becoming a thing of the past. Your good name, excellent reputation and generous spirit is what knocked them down and it will take a great deal before they can stand up and look you in the eye again. They aren’t important, and those who are remain solidly in your corner. This week you will be especially busy so you need to pace yourself and stick to a time schedule.

HINT: Family members are always important to you, but this week you may simply be too busy to enjoy any quiet time together.

AQUARIUS (AIR) JANUARY 20 – FEBRUARY 18

Finally things are moving in the right direction and as the weeks progress you will feel much more confident, optimistic and in control once again. The lessons learned over the past few months need addressing and remembering and will not soon be forgotten. Your family and friends are solidly behind you and always knew that you would end up back in the driver’s seat! Financially things are improving and you can begin to spend some money without feeling guilty.

HINT: People living far away miss you and will soon come to visit.

PISCES (WATER) FEBRUARY 19 – MARCH 20

This week you finally can take a step back and enjoy a tranquil moment or two. For far too long all you have been doing is working long hours, caring for others and trying to make ends meet. Now that you have put your own name at the top of your list of important people, you will be amazed at how easy it is to find the quiet, emotional space you need in order to breathe easily and work on project which will give you peace and joy.

HINT: Before making and final decisions concerning renovating your home, or even moving to a new address, add up all the pros and cons and speak to an expert.

ARIES
(FIRE) MARCH 21 – APRIL 19

Try not to let another person’s fear or enthusiasm color your point of view. The best thing you can do is consider the source, ask a few pertinent questions and walk away. If after a few weeks you feel the same, then that is the time for opening a dialogue whereby you can assess and absorb the information you receive. Always a generous person, this is however, the time for remembering that ‘charity begins at home’. Until you stand firmly financially you need to find a way to simply say no.

HINT: This is the week for getting out and spending time with old friends who make you smile.

TAURUS (EARTH) APRIL 20-MAY 20

This week you can expect pleasant cooperation with the people you come into contact with, especially co-workers, neighbors and siblings. It is a perfect time for socializing, building bridges and smoothing over past hurts. You have been concentrating on your career for so long and this is the week to take a step back and appreciate all you have accomplished and to realize that the light at the end of the tunnel is getting bigger and brighter with each passing day.

HINT: Make arrangements to go out for dinner with an older member of your family.

GEMINI (AIR) MAY 21 – JUNE 21

Luck and hard work will get you through the week as you begin working on a very important project. You are surrounded by many friends and acquaintances and might find it difficult to refuse all the social invitations you receive, but if you wish to remain on schedule, you have no choice. An old friend, from your past, is back in town and wished to renew the relationship. Financially things are stable and will continue being so as long as you continue to watch your expenses.

HINT: Good week for all forms of communication.

CANCER (WATER) JUNE 22 – JULY 22

Lately your personal appearance has become important to you and this is the week for signing up for an exercise program, joining a pool and/or starting a diet. A little effort on your part will bring better results than you imagine. Tired of thinking of money and finances, your thoughts turn to your relationship with close family members and now is the time for planning a family get-together. You have been working so hard all summer and finally you can pay attention to what makes you personally happy.

HINT: Young children are a constant source of joy and amazement.

LEO (FIRE) JULY 23 – AUGUST 22

Your thoughts turn to finances this week as you begin to make significant plans for saving money. There is so much you wish to do and a little money put aside for the coming years will do a great deal towards easing your way. As you sit back quietly, you are pleased with all you have accomplished so far and are ready to move forward to the next stage. A simple conversation with a Virgo could turn into a serious argument. It will be up to you whether ignore the situation or not.

HINT: Great week for setting up important meetings.

TIP FOR THE WEEK: This week it’s ‘back to business’ as your thoughts turn to being organized and practical.
