For the past few weeks you have been thinking of what you missed along the way and what you would change if you had the chance. By the beginning of this week your mood shifts and you are now happily contemplating what two or three things you want in order to fulfill your dreams. This is a busy time for you so make lists and try to be as organized as possible in order to get everything done on time. Happy, new experiences await, so relax and enjoy the scenery! HINT: Old friends and new are right around the corner.
Rather than trying to appease others, this is the week for doing what is necessary in order to be happy yourself.
Thoughts turn to the past as you remember a few of your failures as well as some of your major successes. The trip down memory lane will leave you energized –ready to tackle new projects, meet new people and reach for a star or two. Money and financial matters are under control and after months of sticking to a budget you are now free to splurge a bit.
HINT: You have always made friends easily and this week is no exception.
Your thoughts shift from your career to the people who have shared your journey and made a difference in your life. There is so much you wish to do…the list is endless and there is no time like the present to begin. You know what you want, you have the funds and necessary time, so make your move.
Time spent with your partner and/or mate has had its rocky moments but lately there is a bridge of understanding between you which has made you remember why you chose this person in the first place.
HINT: Sunday and Monday are perfect days for work which demands paying attention to detail.
Your energy levels are high and this is the perfect time for rolling up your sleeves and tackling a project which has been put aside for far too long. The people you come into contact with this week will make you feel welcome and the brainstorming sessions are just what you need to organize your thoughts and see things from a different perspective.
However, this may not be the best time to commit to a major project which might be more expensive than you had bargained for.
Don’t say yes if you mean no.
HINT: Thoughts turn to your career and soon you will have some answers to those questions you have been asking yourself.
When facing delays and setbacks this week, rather than get upset, take a step back and realize that you now have a wonderful window of opportunity to double check your work, see what else is available and discuss your plans with an expert. You will be amazed at what you discover.
Try to be a little more patient with an earth sign you know. This person simply has their own agenda and will eventually catch up with you. Sunday and Monday are good days for entertaining but rather than spend all your time in a hot kitchen, pick something up on your way home.
HINT: Don’t underestimate the power of your intuition.
Your sense of fair play and justice makes you a welcome member of any team and you will find it fairly easy this week to persuade your colleagues that you are on the right track and that they should examine carefully your ideas. After weeks of working overtime, you really need to take a step back and enjoy some quiet time with family and close friends. Once you have rested, you can ease back into the ridiculous schedule you have been keeping for the last few months.
HINT: Money and finances are always on your mind as you have plans and ideas for expansion which might take a little more time than you had expected to reach fruition. Be patient and you won’t be sorry.
This is the week for socializing and meeting with a few family members who have been patiently waiting for you to have some spare time. The people closest to you appreciate all you are doing and understand just how little spare time you have left over, but still they miss you.
HINT: Finally money and finances is no longer a thing to be overly concerned about as you have done your homework and have planned well.
In the coming months you will have the time and the funds to either take a trip or make some serious home improvements.
You have been so very busy this past month or so that you have forgotten what it is to simply sit and relax, read a book, watch a movie or just catch up on some of your favorite shows on television. That all changes this week as a pocket of space is now open to you and you will be free to fill it in any way you choose. Time spent with an older member of your family will be even more enjoyable than you had anticipated, so make a date and have fun.
HINT: Money and financial matters are not a problem now and you are able to spend freely and buy a few things which have been on your list for far too long.
The time has come for you to make a few decisions concerning your future.
Up until now your commitments at work coupled with your obligations at home have prevented you from facing the fact that a little change here or there is just what you need to get back on track once again and feel more in control.
This is not the week for joining in the office gossip—walk away. The truth will come to light and you will be happy you weren’t involved.
HINT: Friday and Saturday are good days for meeting with friends and reminiscing about ‘the good old days’.
You find it very difficult keeping your opinion to yourself, especially when faced with someone who knows absolutely nothing yet challenges your beliefs. Sometimes it is good to clear the air and this week the decision will be yours as to whether you wish to set this person straight. Money is rather tight at the present and you are going to have to cut back a bit and roll up your sleeves if you wish to get ahead.
Your partner and/or mate is always ready to lend a helping hand, but this week you are going to have to deal with things on your own.
HINT: Spend some time with a Libra— you are both on the same page this week.
You need to be surrounded by familiar objects and people you care about in a pleasant and calm atmosphere. Unfortunately you are overworked and have precious little time to smell the roses along the way never mind go into a florist shop and make a purchase. Never mind, in the days to come all of a sudden things fall into place and all is good, once again. Good week to not only pamper yourself, but to buy something special for your home which will give you hours of pleasure and enjoyment.
HINT: Good week to either take a trip or plan one.
MAY 21-JUNE 21
You enjoy working on your own right now as you don’t have the patience for many people. Your mind works like lightning and you feel frustrated having to wait for everyone else to catch up. By the middle portion of this week your thoughts turn to far-away places or people living abroad. If it is the latter, make contact and renew the friendship. This is one relationship which has gracefully withstood the test of time.
HINT: Money and financial matters cannot be ignored and you should meet with the experts and set up a new agenda which will better suit your needs.
