Your thoughts and energy now turn toward making money and improving your standard of living.
You know what you need and know what needs to be done, but circumstances are not always under your control. This is one of those weeks.
Rather than get upset, take a step back and let things flow naturally. In the weeks to come you will receive the answers you have been searching for. Your relationship with a Sagittarius is pleasant, friendly and enjoyable.
HINT: The latter portion of this week is perfect for getting work done. SCORPIO (WATER) OCTOBER 24-NOVEMBER 20
A surge of energy during the middle portion of this week is just what you need in order to get some serious work done and finish a project that has been hanging on for too long. Before taking on any other major work double check your schedule and either postpone your response or call in some people you trust to lend a hand. Money and financial matters are improving albeit slower than you had anticipated or hoped for. HINT: You may find it difficult saving this week. If you don’t really need it… don’t buy it.
This is a perfect week for arranging important meetings as your charm, expertise and experience will draw people closer to you. In addition, your sense of fair play and justice will not only open doors but will help you make some very important contacts for your professional future. Never one to dwell too long on the past, you find yourself reviewing some mistakes and things you would like to change, if you could. HINT: Things may not always run smoothly, but soon a window of opportunity will open which should not be ignored.
Once again you have overbooked your schedule and it may be quite some time before you have the space you would like to relax and rest. In the meantime, you know that you work well under pressure, so don’t panic. All will sort itself out and you will have few, if any, regrets. Time spent with family has its ups and down, so plan accordingly. When speaking to water sign pay close attention as this person is super sensitive and has some very interesting and important ideas. HINT: By Thursday you will be ready to stay put and enjoy the peace and quiet of your own home. AQUARIUS (AIR) JANUARY 20-FEBRUARY 18
This is the week for rolling up your sleeves and getting some work done.
You have been putting in long and hard hours and over the past few months you have gained a great deal of experience, information and expertise; all of which will stand you in good stead in the future.
Your friends are many and time spent in their company has helped put some balance back into your life.
HINT: Financially you continue to save as much as possible and in the weeks to come will have a little more cash available in order to make a purchase or two which you have been considering.
Tension between yourself and a family member cannot be avoided and for the time being the best you can do is walk away and let things sort themselves out on their own. The more you try to remedy the situation, the more complicated it will become. A little space will do wonders. Financially you are in a much better position now and as your purse fills up, so will your sense of security and stability.
HINT: Professionally, your career is accented as the feeling of sharing and friendship makes it easy and pleasant at work.
The tension you have been experiencing over the past few weeks is beginning to dissipate and once again you can enjoy some relaxing moments with your partner and/or mate. This is the perfect week for brainstorming and sharing ideas as your enthusiasm is high and people are prone to pay attention to what you have to say. You appreciate your home and this is the week for playing host and entertaining some people from both your professional as well as social life. HINT: Tuesday and Wednesday are good days for putting old hurts behind you.
After weeks of hard work, you are ready to step back a bit and socialize more.
Your relationship with a fire sign is improving and although you still have a way to go before you can call each other close friends, you are building a bridge and that is important, too. Money and finances are never far from your mind as you continue to plan for some major renovations to your home or perhaps a change of address.
HINT: When speaking with a Scorpio, listen carefully as you have more in common than you thought. GEMINI (AIR) MAY 21-JUNE 21
You may find it difficult saving this week as unexpected expenses coupled with presents which need to be bought will put a dent in your finances. If you are careful over the next few weeks you should be able to recoup your loss.
When speaking to a co-worker be patient and listen rather than speak. This person could turn out to be a good friend down the line, if you are interested. Time spent with a Cancer will help you see things from a different perspective. HINT: Tuesday and Wednesday are the best days this week for getting things done, so plan accordingly.
There are things which you can change and your energies should be focused on them rather than worry about the things which are completely out of your control. Worrying will keep your mind occupied but it certainly won’t get you anywhere.
Besides, in your heart you know that all will work out in the end. There is no one more important in your life than your family and this is the week for inviting them all over for a home-cooked meal. HINT: A project which needs to be worked on can wait until you have the quiet, emotional space needed to complete the job. LEO (FIRE) JULY 23-AUGUST 22
Everything seems to be centered in or around your home this week and you may find it rather difficult finding a quiet corner in which to unwind and relax. Whenever possible get out of the house and go for a walk or sit with a good book at your favorite coffee shop.
Soon all will fall back into place and that is when you will get your best work done. Financially things are much better now and you can begin to relax where money is concerned.
HINT: Your relationship with your partner and/or mate is better than ever as together you work harmoniously toward a common goal.
Your relationship with a water sign has proven to be a pleasant surprise as you discover just how much you have in common.
Over the weeks to come you will feel confident enough to share some of your innermost thoughts and dreams with this person and will not be disappointed. Changes in your home have made things hectic but once the dust has settled you will be thrilled that you made the effort. HINT: Don’t worry about money – you always know where you stand and have not made a mistake in your assessment of your financial situation.
