TIP FOR THE WEEK: Step back a pace and see where you have been before starting out on your next journey.
AUGUST 23-SEPTEMBER 22
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!!! You have a lot on your mind right now and think you have put all the pieces in place but change is on the way and there is really nothing you can do about it. For the time being, try to stay as flexible as possible and remain calm. Getting upset will not get you anything but perhaps an enemy or two. HINT: Watch your spending as money seems to seep between your fingers like water and at the end of the day you are amazed at just how quickly your wallet has emptied.
SEPTEMBER 23-OCTOBER 23
Finally things are beginning to move in the right direction and after months of worry you can begin to relax. Money and finances continue to be your major source of concern, but here too things are starting to improve. This is a good week for contemplation rather than for action and think twice before you commit yourself either verbally or on paper. There are still a few points that need to be discussed and straightened out. HINT: A lot is going on behind the scenes and for now you need to stay in the background rather than center stage.
OCTOBER 24-NOVEMBER 21
Not everything that people say are what is really in their heart and you
will have to pick through all the words in order to get to the real
meaning of what is going on. When in doubt, trust your intuition. You
have been going through a rather rough patch lately, and now have a
better understanding of who your real friends are. Lately you have begun
to see the glass half full and your optimism is growing, slowly but
surely. HINT: Plan to spend some quality time with a sibling.
This is not the best week for setting up meetings, but if you double
check your schedule as well as make detailed notes, you should do just
fine. Old friends come back into your life and it will be up to you to
decide whether or not you are interested in renewing the relationship.
HINT: At work there is still one person who has underestimated your
abilities and your strength. Stand back and be patient. In the end the
truth will come forth and you will be back in the driver’s seat.
DECEMBER 22-JANUARY 19
Professionally, this is the time for putting your best foot forward. You
know you are good at your job and soon many others will recognize just
how valuable a team member you really are. It is time to begin paying
attention to the little things—the things which have aggravated you in
the past and the things which you have avoided dealing with. Now is the
time to make a few minor changes in your attitude. You won’t be sorry.
HINT: Don’t hurry—you’ve got time.
JANUARY 20-FEBRUARY 18
This is a good time for you to reassess your finances and to make some
changes in your spending. Even a small adjustment will make a
significant difference. During the next few weeks you will look at your
friendships in a new way, discovering some wonderful things about your
friends that you had either overlooked or forgotten. HINT: Although you
long to drop everything and buy that plane ticket, you know you can’t
right now. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t take little weekend
trips. You’d be surprised how visiting family or friends in a
neighboring city will do the trick.
This is not the time to step back or allow yourself to luxuriate in
denial. Things are changing and the big surprise is that for you these
changes are going to be for the good. Be patient and be aware of what is
going on around you. You have plenty of time yet to make your move.
This is not the week for opening a serious conversation with your
partner and/or mate. That does not, however, mean that you should back
away from a discussion that they introduce. HINT: If you are not one
hundred per cent certain—wait.
MARCH 21-APRIL 19
Lately you have been feeling that you are on a roller coaster and just
when you think you are headed for solid ground, you swoop up and around
one more time. The problem is that others are trying to control you
right now and you absolutely do not wish to be in the passenger’s seat.
Take your time, choose your words carefully, and be honest. HINT: Take a
look back to what was going on in your life last May and see if there
is something you have left undone that needs tending to.
This week you will find it rather difficult to get up and get going.
Your mind is in the right place but your body simply wants to stay where
it is and read a book, eat something outrageous, or just watch
television. You obviously need a vacation and there is no better time
than right now. Unfortunately you don’t have the time nor money to take
off for exotic places so pamper yourself as only you know how. HINT: At
work you have spurts of great energy and lows where you would love to
drop everything and walk out the door. Ask for help. There are many
around who would love to lend a helping hand.
MAY 21-JUNE 21
This week begins a period of about three weeks where you can expect
delays and setbacks. So, for those of you who are in the middle of
redecorating, or building a new home, take a deep breath and try not to
get too upset. Instead, make plans to go out with friends. This is the
perfect time to mingle and meet new people. Money and finances are
always on your mind and this week you are going to have to work very
hard not to overextend yourself financially. HINT: Before taking on yet
another project, double check that you really have the time.
JUNE 22-JULY 22
Breakdown in communication between yourself and a sibling may cause you
both some upsetting moments. Instead of taking a stand, back up and be
generous. Usually you are so good together and it would be a pity to let
some minor, insignificant thing ruin such a great relationship. At home
you still can’t seem to find a quiet corner where you can work and
create. Don’t worry, in the weeks to come everything will work itself
out and once again you will be busy doing what you love the most. HINT:
Start putting some money aside for a trip in the not-too-distant future.
You need the time away and have earned it.
JULY 23-AUGUST 22
Money and finances have been on your mind as you continue putting out
cash to help your family. The time has come for you to back off a bit.
If you want to spend money, then spend it on yourself for a change.
Minor mix-ups and breakdowns in communications between yourself and an
air sign are expected. Nothing serious, just aggravating. You have the
opportunity now to do something outstanding for someone you care about.
HINT: Don’t rely solely on your memory. For the next few weeks, make
