Give yourself a bit more breathing room. You need space to think, plan and simply let your mind wander over the choices which are available to you. They certainly are there but you have been so inundated with obligations and responsibilities that your stress levels are higher than normal. Financially you are moving according to plan and no unexpected expenses are anticipated in the near future. HINT: Try to find a pocket of time to visit with an elderly member of your family. Still very close but neither of you have had time for a real visit lately.


Try not to let your past cloud your thinking. You now know what to look out for and even more important are aware of the qualities you not only are looking for, but demand both in your professional life as well as your personal one. You have grown and are ready to spread your wings and take on more responsibility. When the time is right you will know it. For now continue gathering information and asking questions. Financially you are a bit stressed but nothing you cannot handle. HINT: The middle portion of this week is a good time to meet with a sibling or another close family member.


There is only so much you can do for a family member and soon you will have to take a step back and put your own needs first. You are always available and ready to pitch in when either a crisis arises or you are called upon to lend a helping hand or a shoulder to lean on. But who takes care of you? Financially you are still counting pennies but the good news is that your pile of coins is growing bigger and bigger. HINT: This is a good time to work on a personal project which has been abandoned for the last few months. You are full of ideas and now is the time to forge ahead.


The time is not yet right for making any major changes or commitments, but in the meantime you can continue gathering information and plotting your next move. You will change your mind along the way so don’t get stuck on any particular plan. Financially you would be happier if you had more ready cash or your savings account showed a higher number, but for the most part all is moving according to plan. HINT: You may feel a drop in energy and enthusiasm at the beginning of the week so take it easy. Later on you will be ready to take on the world.


This is a week for enjoying the company of family and good friends. You have amassed a strong group of friends and colleagues over the years and as the bond continues to grow you realize just how lucky you are. Few are as supportive of one another as you are. Financially you are on target and can afford to ease up a little and splurge on something special for your partner or mate. HINT: Some days you have the feeling that professionally you are stagnating and need something much more challenging. Although now is not the time for making any spur of the moment moves, you can begin to check out what is out there.

MAY 21-JUNE 21

Not all friendships last forever but each one has affected you either positively or negatively. One person in particular has been on your mind and as you lose trust and confidence you seriously doubt whether this person deserves to be included in your inner circle. Wait a couple of weeks and if you still feel the same then make your decision. Financially things continue to be up and down but nothing you can’t handle. You are used to the stress and actually know what you are doing. HINT: Be patient with a fire sign. They could use a little understanding right now.


The time has come for you to pick yourself up and start working on a project which demands your full attention, your creative skills and your sense of humor. For too long you have been avoiding this type of activity and once you get started you won’t believe how much pleasure you derive. Doing for others comes naturally to you and you are always ready to give time to someone who needs to share an idea or hurt. Financially things are moving in the right direction and there is definitely a light at the end of the tunnel. HINT: Time spent with a younger member of your family will lighten your heart.


Rather than pick up something new, roll up your sleeves and start working on those projects you have left half finished. You spent the money getting all the material and checking out all your options, so stop looking for something new and realize the pleasure of tying off loose threads. Financially you are moving into a safer place and if you continue to watch your spending will be able to make that purchase you have been dreaming of for so long. HINT: Your relationship with your partner or mate is much more pleasant these days and now is the time for enjoying some quiet time together.


They say your bark is worse than your bite, but sometime you don’t realize the effect your voice and the words you chose have on the recipient. Later you may be sorry but by then the damage has been done. Think carefully this week and when in doubt refrain from opening a conversation which could quickly escalate into something more dramatic. Your family is always important to you and this is the perfect week for telling someone just how much you appreciate them. HINT: Financially you watch your bank balance very carefully and this week is no exception.


You have definitely not lost your sense of humor even if the joke is on you. People are always attracted by your fine sense of justice and your ability to see both side of the situation which makes you a natural coacher. Try to find some time during the latter portion of this week to spend a day or so with your partner or mate. You need some quiet time away from all the rush and bother. HINT: Financially you are still looking for ways to enhance your income but, here too, everything is in place and all you need is a bit more patience.


Your intuition is high right now and if you feel that something is too good to be true, or that someone is not really telling you the truth pay attention. Not everyone who smiles in your direction has your best interest at heart. During the middle portion of this week you will find the time you need to get away from your desk and enjoy the company of an old and good friend. Financially you have spent a little more than you had anticipated and will need to back up quickly in order to stay out of the red. HINT: When in doubt contact a Capricorn you need and do a little brainstorming.


You continue to work long hours but soon you will be able to back off and enjoy the fruits of your labors. All your efforts have not gone unnoticed and those closest to your personally as well as those important to you professionally are well aware of what you bring to the table as soon as you enter a room. Financially you are working through a problem which is about to be solved. Trust yourself…everyone else does. The people closest to you really care and are sincere in their feelings.

HINT: A Libra is a good friend you can trust.
