HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!!! Things finally seem to be going your way, as all the pieces are falling slowly but surely into place. All your hard work over the past few months is beginning to pay off. Now is the time for taking care of your own needs, pampering and being kind to yourself. You have earned it and you deserve it! As your relationship with another water sign continues to grow, you realize just how valuable a friend this person truly is.
HINT: Don’t waste time dwelling on the past. You have grown so much and are much stronger now for the experience.
Your natural tendency to rush forward is being tempered this week by a strong sense of caution. Pay attention to your feelings and wait. You will know when the time is right to make your move.
In the meantime, the less you speak, the more you will hear. This is a good week for putting your energy into your relationship with your partner and/or mate. This person has been patient and caring, and the time is right for showing your gratitude.
HINT: On Wednesday and Thursday you may feel a bit sensitive and fragile, so curtail any demanding activities.
So much is happening right now, that you may find it difficult juggling your responsibilities among your career, work, partner and/or mate and even plans to travel in the coming months. Less is more at this time, so rather than try to push things along, take a step back and let everything work itself out naturally. It may take a few weeks, but in the end you will be pleased to note that all is well and less a problem than you had imagined.
HINT: Financially you are in a better position than you have been in quite some time, so relax.
MAY 21-JUNE 21
Rather than depend on others, this week you will need to rely on yourself and your own resources.
Promises made may be delayed, so try to be a bit more flexible and understanding. This is not the best time to loan a friend or family member any major sums of money. Wait a few weeks and then re-examine the situation, as you will be thinking much more clearly then.
HINT: Time spent with an earth sign will help you see things in a positive light, so don’t hesitate to accept the chance to spend some time together.
Like a sponge, it is never difficult for you to absorb the emotions and feelings of those closest to you, but this week try to remember that these people are more than capable of taking care of their own affairs. All you need to do is love them, which is what you do unconditionally all the time, so relax.
The middle portion of this week provides a perfect opportunity for you to work on a project that brings you personal pleasure and satisfaction.
HINT: This is the week to start putting money aside for a vacation later in the year.
A breakdown in communication between you and a family member or two is expected; so rather than continuing the conversation, take a breather and start again in a few days. By then, you will both be thinking much more clearly, and the conversation will flow easily. Your relationship with your partner and/or mate has been much more pleasant lately, but sometimes this person speaks out before taking into account the effect of his/her words.
Silence on your part is golden. Don’t worry; you will have your chance to vent once the dust has settled.
HINT: Concerns over money are short-lived, as you soon realize that you have the funds to do what you need.
It isn’t enough for you to value your partner and/or mate from afar. This is the time for showing your appreciation, be it with a small gift, a gesture or a kind word. This person has stood by you, no matter what, and deserves to hear the words. Professionally, things are moving along much slower than you had anticipated, and you may find it hard to hide your frustration.
Think before you speak — you won’t be sorry.
HINT: If you have lent money to a friend, be prepared for a slight delay of a week or two. But don’t worry; you will be repaid.
Even though things are moving ahead slowly but surely, this is not the week for pushing any issues of major importance.
Being ready to sacrifice your own needs in order to maintain peace and tranquility is no longer a cause of concern, as you are now surrounded by people who think the way you do. Professionally, your good name continues to grow, and more and more opportunities will soon be coming your way. Take advantage of this surge of energy you are feeling in order to get some important work done.
HINT: In the months to come, you will be reunited with a close family member who lives far away.
For some time now, you have realized that you need to concentrate on what makes you happy and what you need in order to realize your dreams. You can now not only take a look at the big picture and see where you want to be years from now, but you can also begin to put some important plans into motion.
Plans to meet with a sibling may have a few glitches along the way, but all will work out better than you had imagined, so listen to your inner voice and trust the process.
HINT: You may find it rather hectic at home right now and may have to stay late at the office if you want to get a project completed on time.
Your natural inclination toward justice and fair play makes you a perfect arbitrator when it comes to dealing with partners and/or your mate.
Take the time to listen carefully, and don’t rush to form a conclusion. As the weeks progress, you will be able to find the right words to mollify some ruffled egos and will glean some important information along the way. Professionally, everything is going according to your plan; but for now, try to avoid making any major commitments or purchases. By the end of this month, you will be happy you were cautious.
HINT: Quality time with the family is just what you need this weekend.
You continue working overtime and if it wasn’t for the immense feeling of satisfaction you derive, you would have thrown in the towel months ago. You know you are making a difference, and you also know that soon you will have some time off to simply rest and recharge.
In the meantime, your social life may be suffering, but for the time being there isn’t much you can do about it.
With so much on your agenda these days, no wonder you are having trouble remembering why this is all worth the effort. The truth is that you have a very organized plan and expected to be overly busy right now. Although you may not be able to get away for a few days, you can however take mini breaks and escape for a few hours of personal pleasure with family and friends. Financially, everything is under control and you can relax where money is concerned.
HINT: A breakdown in communication between yourself and a co-worker could not be helped.
But don’t worry; all will be back to normal in a matter of days.
HINT: Your family continues to be a solid source of support, and knowing they are there and how much they care means a great deal to you.
