TAURUS (EARTH) APRIL 20-MAY 20 This is a perfect week for sitting back and enjoying the company of close family and friends.
Your thoughts turn to faraway places, and the time has come for you to begin to set some money aside for a major trip in the next few months.
This time you will be able to combine both business and pleasure, so plan accordingly. Confusion as to which direction you want your career to take may last a few more weeks. Take notes, ask questions and then wait. All will fall into place soon.
HINT: Monday and Tuesday are good days for getting work done.
ARIES (FIRE) MARCH 21-APRIL 19 As difficult as it might seem, this is not the time for bold moves. If you must communicate either online or through the mail, make certain you have backed up your information and have easy access to your files. Although less is more, right now you will find it difficult to turn your back on someone who sincerely wants to understand what you are trying to do and is also ready to roll up their sleeves to lend a helping hand.
HINT: Money and financial matters are always a source of concern as you continue helping those closest to you.
PISCES (WATER) FEBRUARY 19-MARCH 20 Not everyone you meet is as open and honest as you are and, for the time being, you will be best served by not only choosing your words carefully but also keeping your innermost thoughts and plans to yourself. In the coming weeks, you will gain some information that will help you decide just who you should share your ideas with. This week you will feel more secure and at home in the shadows rather than center stage in the bright lights.
HINT: Take some time from your busy schedule to reach out to an old friend who could use a strong shoulder right now.
AQUARIUS (AIR) JANUARY 20-FEBRUARY 18 Although you continue to have many options from which to choose, this is not the time for making any serious decisions.
Take a step back and mull things over a bit. Within the next few weeks you will be able to quietly make up your mind without feeling rushed or worrying that you omitted a fine point or two. If you review the lessons learned over the last 12 months, you will be amazed to see how far you have come and how much you have grown.
HINT: There is still a wish or two that have not yet been answered, allowing you something to look forward to.
VIRGO (EARTH) AUGUST 23-SEPTEMBER 22 You are not necessarily known for being a patient person, even though you do try to think things through to the final detail. The problem is that you are not always ready and open-minded enough to listen carefully to what your partner and/or mate has to say. This seeming lack of interest may cause problems this week, so try to be a bit more flexible.
Unexpected expenses continue to deplete your savings, but you have the situation well under control.
HINT: Take some time off from your busy schedule toward the end of the week to catch up on some much-needed rest.
LEO (FIRE) JULY 23-AUGUST 22 A breakdown in communication between yourself and your partner and/or mate is expected and if you can take a step back and count to 10 before you voice an opinion, you will be able to walk away without aggravating the situation. The less drama the better this week. An old project that has been sitting on the shelf gathering dust is just what you need right now to get the juices flowing. You are so creative and the more focused you are, the better.
HINT: When talking to an air sign, it doesn’t matter whether or not you totally understand what is going on.
What is important is that this person wants to share his/her thoughts and feelings with you.
CANCER (WATER) JUNE 22-JULY 22 The time has come for you to put past disappointments aside and to race head-on toward a goal that will bring you a great deal of personal satisfaction and joy. For far too long you have put your own needs on hold and although you enjoyed helping friends and loved ones along their path, the time has come for you to shine. So pick yourself up, dust yourself off and stand proudly center stage. You have earned your place in the limelight.
HINT: Financially your situation is better now than it has been in quite some time, so relax and make plans for a lovely vacation.
GEMINI (AIR) MAY 21-JUNE 21 Try to be a bit more patient with the people you come into contact with d a i l y … f a m i l y, neighbors and colleagues.
Not all are as sharp as you or can see things as clearly as you do, but they do have their own perspective which, if you give them a chance, will help you to broaden your own horizons. Where money and finances are concerned, don’t leave anything to chance or luck.
HINT: A great deal of energy is going into a project that demands a great deal of creativity, as well as a good sense of aesthetics. When in doubt, call in an expert.
CAPRICORN (EARTH) DECEMBER 22-JANUARY 19 This is a perfect time for letting go of past hurts and moving forward with your life. Put your right foot forward and march away from the old and into the new. Some of your friends will withstand the transition, and those who do not make it have probably finished their role as part of your inner circle of friends.
At work, you continue building a good name for yourself; and as the weeks progress, you will be pleased with a project you have been working on so diligently.
HINT: Financially your situation continues to improve, but you still have to put a little money aside every month.
SAGITTARIUS (FIRE) NOVEMBER 22-DECEMBER 21 This is the time for letting go of old fears and for moving forward with your plans. At the same time, you would be wise to avoid starting any new projects that are placed before you for the first time. In the coming weeks you will understand why it was best to wait. At the same time, this is a good week to edit and check the fine print on work that may require a minor adjustment or two before it meets your standard of approval.
Hint: All forms of communication and conveyance of information or goods may be delayed or even get lost, so double check everything and send things out special delivery.
SCORPIO (WATER) OCTOBER 24-NOVEMBER 20 Don’t waste your time thinking of what could have been. Instead, remember that the glass is really half full and that there is an entire group of people around you who know how good and special you really are. This is not the time for committing yourself to new projects; but it is, however, a fabulous time for working on old assignments and enjoying the result of your hard work. A conversation with another water sign will help you find some answers to the questions that have been on your mind.
HINT: Problems in communicating with a family member are temporary and not worth getting upset over.
LIBRA (AIR) SEPTEMBER 23-OCTOBER 23 All your energy will go to waste unless you pull back and begin to focus on what is really necessary.
There is so much to be done and so many people who turn to you for help and advice that trusting to your memory is no longer a viable option. Take notes, check your calendar and record pertinent facts.
You may feel rather fragile and super sensitive on Monday and Tuesday, so try to avoid contact with caustic people who are only concerned with their own needs and wants.
HINT: Money and financial matters once again need attending, as you may find it difficult to put anything aside for the next few weeks.
