TIP FOR THE WEEK: If you don’t need it, don’t buy it; if you can, wait three weeks before signing it; and, if you don’t mean it, don’t say it. Mercury is retro!

A great deal of energy is being focused on money, property and finances. This is definitely not the time for committing yourself to a new project which will entail spending a great deal of money and time in uncharted waters. You are in a stable enough position to be able to wait. On a personal note, you will be well advised to keep your feelings to yourself for a bit. HINT: Sometimes the only thing you can do with a nosey neighbor is smile and walk away.CAPRICORN (EARTH)
Take a step back and count to ten before speaking your mind. Sometimes words spill out of your mouth like molten lava and this could be one of those weeks. It is true you are frustrated by the lack of professionalism of some of your co-workers, but this is NOT the time to point out their flaws. Wait! Great week for friendships and working together as a team in order to accomplish a mutual goal. HINT: Time off from your busy schedule is just what you need in order to catch up on some abandoned paperwork.

Soon you will have to make some important decisions concerning your professional future, but for the time being, enjoy yourself and relax. Even though you don’t have a pencil in your hand, your mind continues to take notes and when the time is right you will know what you have to do in order to accomplish your goal. The time is right for putting a bit aside either for a trip you wish to take or for some other expense that is always cropping up. HINT: A conversation with an earth sign may produce interesting results.

Don’t expect too much from your friends and you won’t be disappointed. You are always there to reach out and lend a helping hand, but that does not mean that everyone else is as caring and considerate as you. You still have an unfinished project that needs to be dealt with and the sooner you tackle it, the better. An older member of your family would love to spend more time with you and it will be up to you to make time for this meeting. HINT: Ups and downs at work are temporary, so try not to get too involved.

This is the week for mature decisions; for putting some of your plans into action and for an open and honest conversation with your partner and/or mate. You have been vacillating for weeks and soon you are going to have to take a stand. Your friends are solidly behind you and ready to help as soon as you give the word. When speaking to an authoritative person listen more than you speak. HINT: The last half of this week is perfect for pampering yourself and someone you really care about.

Important decisions should be postponed as you are not thinking clearly and there are still a few pieces of the puzzle which need to be worked on. Time spent with a partner and/or mate will be extremely pleasant this week as both of you are flexible and compatible. You continue to work long, hard hours, but don’t mind as you enjoy the people you come into contact with and the work is interesting, for a change. HINT: This is a good time for entertaining, so get out your recipe cards.

MAY 21-JUNE 21
As anxious as you are to start anew, first you have to take a step back and think. Many lessons are to be learned and all you have to do is open your heart and listen. You continue to be there for an elderly member of your family who depends on you. Remember to take a little time off for yourself in order to recharge. Money and finances are always on your mind and this week you will have to be very careful how you spend the cash you have. HINT: The latter portion of this week is excellent for setting up meetings and social functions.

Be patient with your partner and/or mate. This person is trying to be flexible and adapt to your needs, but doesn’t really understand what it is you want or need. There is no point in opening up a conversation right now. Instead, try not to be so fragile and sensitive. You have a great plan for saving money and all you need to do now is implement it. Buying gifts for loved ones is lovely but won’t help you when you want to take that trip this summer. HINT: Great week for spending time with family you love.

There just doesn’t seem to be enough time to get everything done this week, and you will have to battle frustration and anger as you try to work in some free time to socialize with family and close friends. After Wednesday, things will ease up and that is when you can relax and make plans. Your relationship with a younger sibling is very strong and every chance you have to be together is a joy. HINT: You are an honest and loyal friend and anyone who is allowed inside your inner circle is lucky.

Give yourself a little more space and time if you want to get things done to your level of perfection this week. Unexpected problems can’t be avoided and if you are not on a tight leash, you will be a lot more relaxed and able to deal with the snags that appear—nothing serious, just aggravating little details that can’t be ignored or avoided.  Your relationship with a water sign leaves a lot to be desired, and this time the finger is pointing at you. HINT: Do something special for your partner and/or mate this weekend.

There are days when you feel that the weight of the world is sitting squarely on your two shoulders. This week, however, things lighten up as you spend time with people you love and work on a mutually satisfactory project. This is not the time for new beginnings, but it is a great week for tying off loose ends and clearing up some spare time for yourself. You are never completely free from thinking of your financial situation, but, here too, things are easing up some. HINT: Rather than sitting around doing nothing this weekend, get out and mingle.

You are beginning to feel a lot more confident and comfortable now that you are more in control of your life. There is still a lot you wish to accomplish, but for now you have done a great job of clearing up some unnecessary things which have been holding you back. HINT: Your relationship with a sibling is not as pleasant as usual due to a breakdown in communication. Trying to fix the situation will only make it more complicated. Walk away for a week or two.
