TIP FOR THE WEEK: Take your time. Don’t say yes if you mean no. And, finally, read the fine print before signing anything.
AUGUST 23-SEPTEMBER 22
Even though you think you have all the facts, there are still a few little matters that need to be clarified before you can forge ahead. In the meantime ask as many questions as possible. You will be amazed at the answers you receive. This is not the time for making a serious decision concerning a long-term friendship. Wait a few weeks and see if you still feel the same way. HINT: Money and financial matters are taking up more and more of your time.
SEPTEMBER 23-OCTOBER 23
You have a lot of energy this week and are ready to roll up your sleeves, and get started. Make certain you have all the facts you need. This is a perfect time for listening and paying close attention rather than sharing your thoughts. Not everyone who smiles is your friend and you will have to choose carefully the people you bring into your inner sanctum. HINT: You have so much on your mind but don’t let past insecurities hold you back.
OCTOBER 24-NOVEMBER 21
Mix-ups and delays are expected this week so double check your agenda
and wherever necessary send an e-mail or text a message to make sure
everything is ready and the times and places are locked in. The next few
weeks are a good time for stepping back and contemplating your future.
You know what you want but still have a few missing pieces of the
puzzle. HINT: The time has come to tell someone close to you just how
special they are.
Where this week may not be the best for action, it is, however, a
perfect time for stepping back and taking some time off to think and
plan. Pressures at work are not new, but lately you have had the feeling
that you are the one doing the lion’s share of the work while someone
else is taking all the credit. Don’t worry, in the weeks to come the
truth will be revealed. HINT: Some of your plans will be placed on hold
while you sit waiting for another fire sign to catch up.
DECEMBER 22-JANUARY 19
New people, new places, new work will help put a smile back into your
heart. This year you will have more free time to enjoy the little
things. Take it easy and don’t rush into anything. For the next few
weeks you can get further ahead by taking baby steps. Plans to travel
may have to be put on hold as you don’t have the time or money right now
to make the trip you dream of. HINT: Time spent reminiscing with an
older member of your family will be great for you both.
JANUARY 20-FEBRUARY 18
Things are not progressing as quickly as you had hoped, but that does
not mean that you are standing still. Take the time to enjoy the view as
you continue to progress at work and in your private life. Whether you
rush ahead or move slowly, you will eventually get to where you want to
be. The question is, however, what have you missed along the way? HINT:
Unusual expenses have put a dent in your savings but by the end of the
month you will be able to begin putting money aside once again.
A breakdown in communication between yourself and your partner and/or
mate is expected. Sometimes, it is better to remain silent and this will
be one of those times. For quite a while you have been looking for a
new project to get involved in and once you have tied up a few loose
ends you will be free to turn your energy toward this new challenge.
HINT: Family has always come first, and this week you will have the
opportunity to do something special for someone you love.
MARCH 21-APRIL 19
The time has come for you to begin making some serious plans for your
future. For far too long you have let things slide and if you don’t do
something soon, you may discover that you have missed a seriously
important opportunity. In order to avoid confusion, make appointments
with a few experts you trust and be sure to take detailed notes. The
time to act will be very soon. HINT: Be careful where you leave your
wallet and keys on Monday and Tuesday.
You may find it rather difficult to get things done this week. Papers
get lost, communications are muddled and your patience is wearing
thinner and thinner. Instead of getting angry and upset, remember that
things happen and sometimes it is just wisest to take a deep breath and
walk away. You continue to put a great deal of effort and thought into
your relationship with your partner and/or mate and this week is no
exception. HINT: Take some time this weekend to simply rest and relax.
MAY 21-JUNE 21
You can’t seem to find a quiet corner and the best place to get some
serious thinking done may be in the middle of a crowd of strangers. You
need to re-assess your work schedule and try to put some more balance
into your life. For those of you considering major renovations to your
home or office, this is not the best time as you are not thinking as
clearly as you need to. Wait a couple of weeks and then decide. HINT:
Get out and party, but if you drink don’t drive and if you can’t afford
it then don’t order it.
JUNE 22-JULY 22
Usually the first one to pick up the phone or send an e-mail, this week
you feel the need to withdraw and hide in a comfortable corner. For the
time being you just can’t seem to find the strength to make idle
conversation or be the life of the party. Never mind, in the next few
weeks all will be back to normal. Take this time to recharge and think
of what your next challenge is going to be. HINT: The time has come for
you to be yourself and to do what is good for you, for a change.
JULY 23-AUGUST 22
Money and finances continue to be on your mind and although you are
concerned there is nothing you can do right now that will make a major
difference. Curb your spending and make lists. You can’t continue to
support your family forever. Soon you will feel the need to pamper
yourself and will need a few coins in your pocket in order to do so.
HINT: This is a perfect time for finding a special place where you can
work and create. There is so much you want to do and nothing is going to
stop you this time!
