Conflicts which might arise this week will not be major if you can remain calm and walk away. The less involved you are in office gossip, family feuds and intrigue among your neighbors, the better. If you plan carefully, you will be able to find the emotional quiet space you have been seeking in order to write, paint, sculpt, garden or any other form or activity which demands precision, ingenuity and creativity.
HINT: You may not have as much patience with a sibling right now, but any time spent together will be good for you both.
When asking someone you trust for their opinion, don’t be surprised or upset when you get an answer you weren’t expecting.
If you are honest with yourself, you will realize that this person is right, and rather than feel insecure or even angry, be grateful that you have such a true friend. You can stagnate or grow— the choice is yours. Financially you continue to watch your expenses and wherever possible put some cash aside for a major trip or home renovation.
HINT: People enjoy being in your company and this is a good week to get out and mingle.
MAY 21-JUNE 21
Easily bored, you need constant challenges which help spur you on to reaching your goals. Rather than try to tackle all aspects alone, relegate some of the work to people you trust. Your relationship with a fire sign continues to grow and the more time you spend with this person you realize just how valuable a friend he/ she has become. The middle portion of this week is good for dealing with money and finances as you will have more time and patience.
HINT: Rather than relying on your memory, take copious notes and remember to add dates, times and places.
You have begun to feel much stronger and more confident as insecurities from the past fade and your successes mount. A great deal of hard work has gone into getting you where you are today, but as you look back you realize just how worthwhile the journey has been. Professional contacts you make right now might not withstand the test of time, but they will open some new opportunities which should be explored.
HINT: You have a lot on your mind right now and for the time being should keep your ideas and plans to yourself. Once you have examined all your options you will be ready to share your decision with those who need to know.
The time has come for you to take a step back and to rethink, regroup and reorganize.
This has been a very busy and productive year for you so far and before you attack your next challenge relax and let things progress at their own pace. Many people rely on you and turn to you for advice, knowing that you are always ready to reach out and do what you can for those you love. Sunday and Monday are good days for setting up important work meetings where you can plan and brainstorm.
HINT: Soon you will have the time and money to take that trip you wish.
As the week progresses, you will be pleased to note that little things which irritated you in the past do not seem nearly as upsetting right now. This is a good time for taking care of personal business and for strengthening relationships.
Minor setbacks are expected and cannot be avoided, but you can control your reaction to them. Be patient with an earth sign. You have much more in common than you think and with a little understanding you will see just how much you complement each other.
HINT: Thoughts of travel are not far from your mind.
You have been overly busy with personal and professional matters, and this is the week for slowing down and catching up on some much needed rest. Before you commit to yet another project, ask yourself if you really wish to take on so much work at this time. Your relationship with a fire sign is just what you need to put some energy back into your life so don’t hesitate to accept an invitation to spend some quality time with this person.
HINT: Money and finances may be a bit tight right now so watch your spending carefully.
Once again you may inadvertently cause friction between yourself and your partner and/or mate.
Remember that there are two sides to each coin and your way is only one way of seeing things no matter how you feel. Give this person a bit more credit and you will be amazed at how easily you are able to patch things up.
Unexpected expenses in and around your home cannot be avoided, but rather than try to fix them yourself, call in the experts. You will end up saving a lot of money if you do.
HINT: Tuesday and Wednesday are good days for taking care of personal business.
You will find it easy to multi-task this week so be prepared to put in some long and interesting hours. This is a good time for all forms of exercise which will help you deal with some of the stress. You will note that your partner and/or mate is more attuned to your needs and ready to jump in if and when you need it. You continue to consider your career options, but the time is not right for making any serious or drastic decisions.
HINT: Your relationship with a family member has been shaky at best, and the time has come for you to acknowledge that it really is not your fault.
This is the time to roll up your sleeves and not procrastinate.
There is still much that needs to be done and new and interesting projects are on the way, so tie up loose ends and be prepared for a fascinating conversation with an air sign.
Your financial situation is much more stable these days and this week you can afford to pamper yourself and someone you care about.
HINT: By the middle portion of this week your time will be spent with an older member of your family who could use a helping hand.
So many responsibilities fall on your shoulders right now that you may find it difficult avoiding the feeling that you are in a rut and can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel.
In a week or two the pressure will ease up and that is when, once again you will be your optimistic, confident self. Pay attention to finances as you continue putting money aside for a trip in the coming months.
HINT: Count your words as if they cost money when dealing with a person who avoids eye contact. The less said right now, the better.
For the time being you continue working long and sometimes difficult hours trying to balance everything into your working day. Soon, you will be able to sit back and enjoy the pleasure of a job well done. But for the time being, you will have to get as much done as you can while trying to add a few more hours of sleep each night. Friends and family understand the pressure you are under and are always ready to lend a helping hand the minute you call.
HINT: Your relationship with a Cancer is much more enjoyable so pick up the phone.
