Finally after weeks of feeling in a rut, things are beginning to move forward, and now is the time for you to consider your next move. You have many options, so take your time. This week also brings a break from the hectic schedule at work whereby you can relax and socialize with friends and colleagues alike. Financially you continue to watch your bank account and everything is definitely under control.
HINT: A breakdown in communication between yourself and a family member is on your mind and this is a good time for building bridges.
The need for self-expression and autonomy are strong this week and it will be difficult for you to take a back seat while others try to control things. Rather than stay quiet and fume, organize your thoughts, pick a good time and sit everyone down for a serious conversation. You know what you want and need, and the time has come for you to share your feelings with those closest to you.
HINT: Financially you continue to keep a close look at your financial commitments, but this week an unexpected expense may take a chunk out of your savings.
After careful deliberation you will come to the conclusion that those things which have been upsetting you from the past are not nearly as important any more. You have learned from your mistakes and the plus side far outweighs the negative, so relax and move forward with confidence.
Those closest to you are always ready to lend a helping hand and by the middle portion of this week you may discover that their help may definitely come in handy.
HINT: When speaking to an air sign, pay close attention as this person has valuable information to pass on to you.
Great week for getting away from your desk and enjoying some quiet time with those closest to you.
For weeks you have been working overtime and you definitely could use the change. You are lucky to be surrounded by special people, both personally and professionally who not only have your best interest at heart, but genuinely care for you. Thursday is a good day for setting up important meetings as you will find it easy to communicate your thoughts and people will be especially open minded to what you have to say.
HINT: You may feel the need to spend a little more than usual this week—splurge you deserve it!
Great week for focusing on your career.
You have had so many ups and downs these last few months that a bit of good news will do a lot to bolster your ego and remind you that the glass is truly half full.
Soon you will need to sit down with someone you trust completely and go over your plans for the coming months. You have everything worked out in your mind, but need a second opinion before committing yourself formally. Pay attention to how much you spend this week as you tend to.
This is a good week for taking care of personal business. You may have to adjust your schedule but it will be worth the effort once you begin checking off the items on your list.
You may find that you have little time or patience for small-talk or people who are petty or superficial. By the middle portion of the week you will be busy discussing plans with an air sign. Together you make a strong team. Financially you are ready to make a major purchase you have been dreaming of for quite some time.
HINT: People living far away are on your mind and this is a good time for reconnecting and refreshing old friendships.
Once again the lines of communication between yourself and your partner and/or mate are wide open and this is the week to sit down and make some important plans. Minor changes in your home need discussing as well as a few financial matters. Remember this is not the time to let egos get in the way. Give and take will get you where you want to be. A special project may have to wait for a week or two as you simply do not have the time or quiet emotional space to deal with it right now.
VIRGO (EARTH) AUGUST 23-SEPTEMBER 22 This week you prefer working on your own, at your own pace, with your own unique ability to concentrate and cope with even the finest of details. Once you have organized your thoughts you will be ready to sit down with your partner and/or mate and bring them up-to-date and get them on board. Each of you adds something different to the relationship and it is that difference which makes you so special.
HINT: Financially you continue to pay close attention to your situation and even though sudden expenses have cropped up, you don’t have anything to worry about for the time being.
Although you don’t really have a great deal of patience this week, you are more than ready to begin a project which demands a great deal of creativity and working together with a few colleagues you respect.
Tuesday and Wednesday are good days for enjoying the company of young people. You have a great deal to offer and it is a win-win situation whenever you are all together.
HINT: Financially you need to pay close attention to your bank balance and wherever possible, cut back on some unnecessary spending. The situation will improve shortly, and that is when you will be free to splurge.
HINT: You are surrounded by a group of loyal friends and this is the week to do something special for one of them.
Money expected may be delayed. It will arrive but in the meantime you need to deal with finances and make sure that everything is in order. An open, honest talk with an expert or two will help you to get back on the right track. There are a handful of people who make your life a joy and this is the week to lock up early and spend some quality time with those closest to you.
HINT: For those of you who are considering taking a course or two this is the week for gathering information rather than for making a formal commitment.
Great time for you to set up a meeting with an earth sign to work out some ideas you have been thinking about for some time. This person looks at things from a much different perspective than your own which always helps. But, more importantly, they are completely trustworthy and always have your back.
Before leaving your house during the middle days of this week, double check your agenda as changes in plans are expected.
HINT: It has been too long since you spent some one-on-one time with a sibling.
CAPRICORN (EARTH) DECEMBER 22-JANUARY 19 You continue to be very busy but that does not mean that you cannot take some time off to enjoy the company of a younger member of your family. It has been too long since you have spent time simply relaxing and enjoying yourself. So much is happening in your life and there is no way you can remember everything, so keep your diary up to date and remember to check it daily.
When speaking to a financial expert take notes and be prepared to answer some important questions.
HINT: Time spent with your partner and/or mate is getting better and better.
