TAURUS (EARTH) APRIL 20-MAY 20 Career, higher education and travel are all on your mind this week, as you begin to solidify plans for the coming months. At work your input is highly regarded, and both coworkers as well as employers continue to be impressed by your professionalism, contribution to the team and quiet way of handling things. Wednesday and Thursday are perfect days for taking some time off to meet with old friends as well as to be introduced to new people.
HINT: Your finances are under control and if you wish to take some money for a mini-vacation, then by all means, do so.
ARIES (FIRE) MARCH 21-APRIL 19 You tend to speak before you think, and this could prove to be a problem this week. Not everyone is ready to hear the truth or prepared to give you credit for knowing that truth. In the meantime, continue gathering facts and sharing your thoughts with a select group of likeminded friends and acquaintances.
Thoughts turn to the past, but this is not the time to dwell on old hurts or supposed failures. You are beyond that now, and need to turn your thoughts to tomorrow – not back on yesterday.
HINT: By the last few days of the week, you will feel a lot more confident concerning your career.
PISCES (WATER) FEBRUARY 19-MARCH 20 Insecurities from the past are beginning to lighten up and as the week progresses, you will feel much more in control of yourself and your life. Soon you will have to make some serious decisions concerning the direction you wish your future to take, but meanwhile, sit back and let your intuition guide you. This is a good time for putting some money aside for a major purchase or vacation in the summer months.
HINT: Saturday and Sunday are days for pampering yourself and if that entails a little retail therapy, all the better! AQUARIUS (AIR) JANUARY 20-FEBRUARY 18 Slowly but surely, things are falling into place and although some days you have the feeling that you are in limbo, waiting for the pieces of the puzzle to complete the picture, you are in fact headed in the right direction.
Trust yourself and know that you have both the intelligence and the expertise to make the right choice when the time comes. In the meantime, enjoy the status quo.
Time spent with your family is just what you need this week to relax, rest and recharge.
HINT: Thoughts turn toward money and finances by the middle portion of this week.
VIRGO (EARTH) AUGUST 23-SEPTEMBER 22 You have been putting a great deal of time, money and effort into projects dealing with your home and family.
Although not everyone is verbal and may not have voiced their appreciation, know that all your long hours and caring have been noted. In the near future, you will be greatly touched by their response.
HINT: Financially things are rather tight as expenses got a little out of control, but you have nothing to worry about. You always keep a tight rein on your situation and are rarely surprised.
LEO (FIRE) JULY 23-AUGUST 22 The time has come for you to focus some of your stored-up energy on taking care of business that brings you personal joy and satisfaction. There are so many people who turn to you for help and advice, but this is the week for putting your own needs first. A project which has been gathering dust on the shelf for far too long is begging to be completed, and now the time is right.
HINT: Past insecurities are not nearly as important as they were and today, you not only know how to keep everything in proportion, but recognize your own value and worth.
CANCER (WATER) JUNE 22-JULY 22 The past few months have been hectic and it has been rather difficult for you to find a quiet corner, since so much has been going on in and around your home. But now that the dust is settling, it is time to roll up your sleeves and get to work! Professionally you continue building a solid reputation, as all your hard work is beginning to bear fruit. Time spent with family is always a blessing and this week, try to take some time to be with the youngest members of your family.
HINT: Your relationship with your partner and/or mate is a lot more comfortable and easy this week, as together you discuss plans for your future.
GEMINI (AIR) MAY 21-JUNE 21 Your career is back on your mind, as you are contemplating making a few changes in your professional life.
This is the perfect time for setting up important meetings or for sharing your ideas with an expert or two. Easily bored, you are constantly looking for new challenges and projects which will tax your creative talents. In the coming weeks, an offer will be made that you will find rather difficult to turn down. But take your time and examine all the fine print before committing yourself.
HINT: This is a good time for new beginnings, as you are more than ready to move on.
CAPRICORN (EARTH) DECEMBER 22-JANUARY 19 Overworked, you have the feeling that you will never get enough rest! Don’t give up; the light at the end of the tunnel has just grown huge, and there is a happy ending in sight. All your hard work and long hours will bring you the results you have been hoping and working for.
People you come into contact with this week will be attracted by your honesty, intelligence and strength.
Once your timetable has cleared a bit, find the time to enjoy an evening or two with some family members you especially care for.
HINT: You are the best friend a person could have, and everyone knows it! SAGITTARIUS (FIRE) NOVEMBER 22-DECEMBER 21 Problems or setbacks concerning money and finances are easing up this week, and once again you can breathe freely. You know what you want and need, but sometimes you are not in perfect control of the situation. That is what happened over the past few weeks. Although you enjoy the camaraderie of working as a member of a team, you do prefer to handle things your own way and at your own pace.
HINT: A conversation with a Pisces may at first seem confusing, but the longer you listen to this person the more you will realize just how special they really are.
SCORPIO (WATER) OCTOBER 24-NOVEMBER 20 Your relationship with a person you come into daily contact with is improving, and it will be up to you to decide just where you would like the friendship to go. Your intuition is finely honed and you never forget a kindness or a hurt, but most of all, once you have lost trust in someone, that connection is severed forever. Time spent with a Capricorn will be interesting and a great deal more pleasant than you had anticipated.
Listen carefully to what this person has to say. You won’t be sorry.
HINT: Wednesday and Thursday are perfect days for getting work done.
LIBRA (AIR) SEPTEMBER 23-OCTOBER 23 Business as well as pleasure occupy your days this week, and you may have to do a bit more traveling than usual – so plan ahead. Financially you would feel a lot more comfortable if you had a larger nest egg in the bank, but your situation continues to improve and along with it, your bank balance. Your relationship with a water sign is just what you need in order to get a different perspective on your plans, so don’t hesitate to speak freely with this person.
HINT: This is a good time for beginning a new fitness program, and for taking off those few pounds you have been unhappy about
