TIP FOR THE WEEK:  You are more in control of your emotions this week and now is a good time to begin some important discussions.



This week you will be busy with people you come into contact with daily: neighbors, family, siblings and everyone at the office.  Your need to communicate is great but you may not have enough patience to deal with all the insignificant banter. Take some time off this week to work on a project that has been pushed aside for the past couple of months. It is time to finish it. HINT: Your thoughts turn to things you value which include both your self-esteem and monetary possessions.




Plans to travel or renovate your home may not progress as smoothly as you had hoped due to a few glitches along the way which cannot be avoided. Rather than getting upset, take a step back and look for an alternate solution. Your relationship with a water sign is far from satisfactory and this time you may have been a tad too critical. Remember that water signs are extremely sensitive. HINT: The last few days of this week are perfect for entertaining at home.




You definitely have the feeling that you are treading water instead of forging ahead with your plans. Actually, you are doing the best you can and whatever roadblocks you face along the way are not of your making. In the meantime, you are learning just who your friends are and who you can trust. Plans for a trip in the coming months are taking shape and soon you will be reunited with a loved one. HINT: Walk away from idle gossip.




Take some time this week to relax, rejuvenate and build your inner strength. You have been working so hard to accomplish your goals and now that you are nearly there you feel exhausted. The last few meters are the hardest to climb, but don’t give up now! Setbacks involving money and property are expected but the good news is that they are only temporary. HINT: There is so much you wish to accomplish professionally but it will take a bit more time before your dreams become reality.




Lately you have had the feeling that a close friend not only betrayed you but stabbed you in the back. Trust your instincts. Everyone knows that you are right, even though they are not always ready to speak up. Take your time and don’t act in haste. An impulsive move right now may have a long-lasting effect. Sometimes the enemy you know is far better than the one you don’t know. HINT: Time spent with your family will do a lot to make you see that the glass is really half full.




A person you know professionally has thrown a monkey wrench in your plans and this time there is absolutely nothing you can do about it. Bide your time. You know you are in the right and so does everyone else. Soon you will have the opportunity to make your voice heard. Family continues to be a wonderful source of support and time spent together is just what you need right now. HINT: Be careful how you spend your money. This is not the time to be extravagant. Actually, it is a good time for putting a little aside for a trip later in the year.




You don’t usually act in haste, but lately you have been tired of waiting for what you want and are ready to jump in and grab the gold ring. Good for you!  In your heart you know you are right and have mentally planned each move so long that you know what pieces need to be placed on the board in order for you to win. Professionally you are still working overtime but your social life is making up for the long hours. HINT: An intimate dinner with someone special is just what you need this week.




This is a perfect week for staying home and simply relaxing. For so many months you have been working long and hard hours and the time has come to recharge your batteries and catch up on some much needed rest. Time spent with a younger member of your family always makes you feel happy and proud. This is a good week for building bridges and strengthening existing relationships. HINT: When speaking to an earth sign try to remain calm and count your words as if each one cost money.




All your hard work and careful planning seem to be for naught as you fight to keep on schedule. There is so much you need to do and not nearly enough time to get everything done to your satisfaction. Rather than getting upset, reach out to someone you trust and respect and ask for help. Your partner and/or mate is busy right now with their own projects and don’t seem as sympathetic as they used to be. Be patient and stay optimistic. HINT: Think twice about trusting someone who avoids eye contact.




Problems and setbacks at work are expected this week and for the time being all you can do is stand back and let things take their natural course. Your relationship with a Libra is becoming much more involved as you begin to see not only how much you have in common, but how much you can trust this person. This is definitely the time for facing the future and walking away from the past. HINT: You continue thinking up new and interesting projects and in the coming months one of them will take wings and soar.



MAY 21-JUNE 21

Difficulties with an old friend are expected and there really isn’t much more you can do to preserver the relationship. It seems as if this one has lasted for as long as it could. Soon new and interesting people will enter your life and fill the void. When dealing with an Aries remember that both of you are wonderful at starting things but not really strong at the finish line. If you do wish to work together you will have to find someone who can see your vision through to fruition. HINT: This is a good time for those of you who are considering making some home improvements.




You can’t seem to find a quiet corner at home and end up wasting time trying to get settled rather than sitting down to some serious work. Time is passing and soon you will feel pressured to get a project finished. Take your laptop and go sit in a library or coffee shop—just sit down already and get to work. When speaking to a sibling remember that this person is not only on your side but may be your best friend. Any time the two of you are together is a party. HINT: If you can’t take a major vacation right now, take little ones…you’ll be surprised at just how refreshed and rejuvenated you will feel.
