ARIES (FIRE) MARCH 21 – APRIL 19: You may be confused this week as to what your friends really want and it will be up to you to decide just how much energy you are willing to focus on understanding the problem and working to rectify the situation. Your best bet may be to lay low and let things work themselves out naturally. A lot of time will be spent in and around your home right now, so take the time to make it as pleasant and welcoming as possible.
HINT: When in doubt let that inner voice guide you and you won’t go wrong.

CANCER (WATER) JUNE 22 – JULY 22: You have so much energy right now, and are able to assert yourself more than usual.

Although anxious to work on a special project, you may find that patience is what you need as you don’t seem to have the free time or quiet emotional space necessary.

Not to worry, in the coming weeks all will calm down and that is when you can get some important work done. HINT: Count to ten before speaking as a slip of the tongue could cause an unnecessary rift between yourself and a sibling.

LIBRA (AIR) SEPTEMBER 23 – OCTOBER 23: You have worked so hard this past year and finally all the pieces are beginning to fall into place. Soon you will have even more projects to select from, so take your time and choose carefully.

When in doubt, wait. This is the time for quiet deliberation as you may have to rely on your own thoughts and experiences rather than depending on others for help. HINT: Time spent with a Cancer is more than just pleasant, it is satisfying.

CAPRICORN (EARTH) DECEMBER 22 – JANUARY 19 Relax. Sometimes things have a way of taking the long way around, but eventually you will get to the place you seek. Be patient and trust yourself. Professionally, you continue to advance according to plan and soon you will have more time to devote to your social life. When speaking to another earth sign, remember, just because they need to focus on minor details doesn’t mean you have to avoid voicing your opinion. HINT: Don’t hesitate to admit you are wrong. You will only gain in stature.


SAGITTARIUS (FIRE) NOVEMBER 22 – DECEMBER 21 Business and work related events continue to fill your days and all your good intentions to walk away from your desk and return home early seem to disappear as more and more people depend on you. Your fabulous work ethic plus your sense of fair play make you a most valuable member of the team. Don’t let a few bumps along the way ruin your day. In a very short time you will see how important they were to help you refocus your thoughts and energies.

HINT: Sunday and Monday are perfect days to indulge yourself.

VIRGO (EARTH) AUGUST 23 – SEPTEMBER 22 You have so much to offer and all you need to do is pick up a phone and set the ball rolling. You have enough spare time and the right experience to be a valuable new member of any team you choose. When dealing with family members, try to be a bit more patient. Listen carefully before voicing your opinion.

HINT: Changing your mind is not a show of weakness, but rather a sign of maturity.

GEMINI (AIR) MAY 21 – JUNE 21: Professionally, this is the time for asking questions rather than for giving answers. You have a lot yet to learn and need to take your time. If you are being pressured, then this may not be a project worth investing both time and energy in. On a personal note, your need for independence and space may be causing problems with a partner and/or mate. HINT: A great deal of energy is being focused on money right now and, once again, you are ready to do what it takes to get things straightened out.

TAURUS (EARTH) APRIL 20-MAY 20: Usually self-sufficient and stable, you find yourself enjoying getting out and meeting people rather than staying home or behind your desk at work, and your relationship with a water sign is exactly what you need these days for feeling good about yourself. Always the first person to reach out and lend a helping hand, this week you will be surprised at how many people go out of their way to spend time with you. HINT: Don’t let temporary distractions keep you from your goal and if called upon to make a commitment, take your time before answering.

LEO (FIRE) JULY 23 – AUGUST 22: This week you are going to have to be careful about spending and watch your cash flow carefully. You may have been over optimistic about your funds and a little caution now will go a long way. You have been feeling a lot better about yourself lately and the people who know you best are beginning to notice. This weekend do something special for a sibling and you won’t be sorry. HINT: Friday is a good day for inviting people over for a traditional meal.

SCORPIO (WATER) OCTOBER 24 – NOVEMBER 21: Rather than depending on your memory, this week when talking on the phone, when at a meeting and even when idly thinking, take notes.

The more detailed information you have at your fingertips, the less chance of making a mistake or forgetting an important detail.

HINT: If you don’t mean it then don’t say it. People will be taking you at your word right now and don’t say yes when you really want to say no.

AQUARIUS (AIR) JANUARY 20 – FEBRUARY 18: Always careful about money, you may find this week that you are spending more than you had bargained for. Never mind. You have the funds and since nothing can be done, there is no reason for getting aggravated.

Keep notes on your expenses and you will feel more secure. Time spent with a partner and/or mate is exactly what you need right now and time spent together with this person will be caring and special. HINT: Past issues with a sibling arise and it will be up to you to decide how much energy you wish to devote to them.

PISCES (WATER) FEBRUARY 19 – MARCH 20: You may discover this week that you are super-sensitive and emotional.

Little slights, whether they are real or imaginary, can upset you and ruin your day and this is the week for cutting back and leaving yourself more time to relax and enjoy life. Try not to force yourself to get things done. Money and finances need looking into and wherever possible cut back on your spending. HINT: Don’t presume you know everything about your partner and/or mate. If you have a question, then ask.
