TIP FOR THE WEEK: Two steps forward and one step back seems to be your routine these days. Since there really isn’t anything you can do to jumpstart your engine, try keeping focused and go with the flow.

JULY 23-August 22
Money and finances continue to be on your mind as you begin planning for a major expense—an extended trip perhaps or some serious renovations at home. Whatever is going on you will have to budget your finances and pay close attention to little details. Your relationship with a sibling is touch-and-go right now as you would really like a shoulder to lean on. Instead you are forced to deal with the other person’s problems, yet again. HINT: A creative project that you have put aside needs working on soon.VIRGO---EARTH
This is not the time for taking chances. You have always thought things through very carefully and take pride in your logical mind. However, this week you may suddenly discover that a slip of the tongue may cause you some very embarrassing moments.  Think twice before speaking to a water sign. HINT: Take your time when dealing with money matters and be prepared for a few minor setbacks.

You sway from optimistic to pessimistic and back again in the short space of a few hours and these days you find it difficult to concentrate for a long period of time. In the weeks to come you will have more information and that is when you can begin making plans. In the meantime, take copious, detailed notes and be prepared to answer some complicated questions. HINT: A trip in the winter will do much to lighten your load.

Don’t let past failures and disappointments keep you back now. Today you are a much different person and the experience you have gained is priceless. Soon, you will be in a position to take control of your life once again and that is when you should remember the little people who helped you along the way. You will be well advised to remain calm when speaking to your partner and/or mate. HINT: This is a good week for setting up important meetings.

Meetings and social functions continue to keep you busy and as much as you would love to just walk away and go home, you know your presence is expected. Do not be surprised if your relationship with someone at work begins to deteriorate. You are not at fault and everyone knows how honest and fair you are. Stay calm and let things progress normally. You will not be disappointed. HINT: A conversation with a Virgo will be difficult yet worthwhile.

Things seem finally to be going your way. Enjoy your time off and make arrangements to socialize more this week. You have been working so hard that you don’t know what to do now that you have some free days. For those of you who are still debating whether or not to move, take your time. The latter portion of this week is perfect for getting things done. HINT: Don’t hesitate to throw away things you really don’t need. If you haven’t worn it in two years, you don’t need it.

As much as you would love to get away, you really don’t have the time or the money. Instead, try taking little weekend trips with someone you care for. Even one night away will feel like a vacation. As hard as you try to put some money aside, expenses keep cropping up and you have to watch your spending just to get through the month. HINT: Don’t worry, in the months to come things will improve and once again you will be able to buy the things you want and need without scrimping.

This is the time for you to sit back and rest—to recharge your batteries and let your mind wander. Just because you aren’t writing, does not mean that you aren’t working. You spend a great deal of time thinking and planning and when the time is right all will flow naturally and easily onto the page. Your relationship with your family is up and down this week and you may have to take a step back and let them work things out by themselves this time. HINT: Time spent with another water sign is just what you need.

You have the feeling that you are on a rollercoaster and simply don’t know when or where to get off. Some days you are your old optimistic self and then within hours you become doubtful again. Trust your intuition and be kind to yourself. When speaking to your partner and/or mate try to be as clear and precise as possible so that he/she can understand what you really want. HINT: Be careful how you spend your money on Monday and Tuesday. Unwanted purchases have a momentary reward and a long-term payment.

This is not a potentially good week for forging ahead at work. It is, however, a wonderful week for dealing with facts and figures. Things may start of just fine and get stuck in the middle. Before getting upset, back off and take a deep breath. By the time you are ready to look at your project again you will have a better idea what needs to be done and how to do it. Someone from your past may be trying to get in touch with you again. It will be up to you to decide whether or not you are interested in renewing that old relationship. HINT: Take some time to visit a Virgo—you won’t regret it.

MAY 21-JUNE 21
This is a great week for entertaining at home or for simply curling up in your favorite chair with a good book or relaxing in front of the television. For much too long you have been working late hours and haven’t really had any down time in weeks. Take advantage of this lull and recharge your batteries. If you don’t expect too much from a meeting at the beginning of this week, then you won’t be disappointed. HINT: There is a great deal going on behind the scenes and you will be wise to stay away from all the gossip.

You can’t seem to find a spot for yourself. The truth is you really need a vacation. Even a few days away from your household chores and pressures at work will do wonders. Start making some phone calls and see what is available in your price range. Take some time to contact a sibling…he/she always loves hearing from you. Soon you will be spending more time together and that is always fun. HINT: Professionally, this is the time for making some moves in a new direction. Pace yourself and check out the waters before jumping in.
