TAURUS (EARTH) APRIL 20-MAY 20 Slow to anger, it takes a great deal to upset you. But once the fires have been lit, watch out! Before speaking your mind, take a step back and see what, if anything can be salvaged from the relationship. Then, when you have calmed down, make your decision. Not every friendship is meant to last a lifetime. Some have a short shelf life and when their time is over they disappear.
Savor the good parts and walk away from the rest.
HINT: Professionally, things are moving in the right direction and the people you come into contact with will help you further your career goals.
VIRGO (EARTH) AUGUST 23 – SEPTEMBER 22 Be patient with your partner and/or mate and whenever possible take a good, hard look at yourself before pointing your finger at someone else. Always critical, you may miss the point by not listening carefully to what the other person is saying. Remember that there are two sides to every story and yours does not always have to be the right one. Watch your finances as the situation is not as stable as you would like. You will have enough time to assess your situation and then make your plans.
HINT: A conversation with a water sign will be anything but boring.CANCER (WATER) JUNE 22 – JULY 22 Money and time are scarce right now and even though people you care about are pushing for you to take some time off to visit family and friends living abroad, you know that when the time is right you will be the first to make arrangements. That does not mean, however, that you can’t wish or dream. This is a good time for making a few changes in your lifestyle which will help improve your quality of life. A new eating program, a little more exercise and you will feel much more in control of your life.
HINT: You will find the discipline needed to not only work on but finish a project during the weeks to come.LEO (FIRE) JULY 23 – AUGUST 22 Sometimes you simply have to change the way you think in order to find the peace you are searching for. This week you will have the chance to learn from your mistakes, gain much better knowledge of what your goals are plus find the shortest path to achieving your aims. The trick will be to take small, baby steps rather than rush off into the sunset. A combination of your experience, intelligence and sense of justice will help you find the answers you are searching for.
HINT: This weekend plan to spend some quality time with your partner and/or mate.
ARIES (FIRE) MARCH 21 – APRIL 19 This is the time for you to finally realize that you can let go of the past and move towards a bright, new future. The only one holding you back is you, yourself. There are people who stand solidly behind you and others who block your way. Your reaction and the weight you give each side will determine the path you take. When dealing with a water sign pay close attention and don’t be too anxious to react. A hasty word now could cause aggravation along the way. Look ahead and plan wisely.
HINT: This weekend is a good time for catching up on some much needed rest.AQUARIUS (AIR) JANUARY 20 – FEBRUARY 18 Money and financial matters need addressing as you begin planning for your future. This is certainly a good time for amassing information and checking prices even though you are not yet ready to make your move. Try to stay focused and concentrate on what is possible rather than dream about things which are, for the time being, beyond your grasp. This is a good month for meeting new people and expanding your circle of friends.
HINT: All work and no play has been your motto for far too long.CAPRICORN (EARTH) DECEMBER 22 – JANUARY 19 Although your relationship with a sibling is not as strong as you would like, you know that you have done your best.
For the time being take a step back and let things work out at their natural pace. Professionally you continue putting in extra hours and your hard work is about to bear fruit. The people you come into contact with daily are not only a source of support but are a real support group and together you are able to accomplish wonderful things.
HINT: If you continue to curb unnecessary buying, you will soon be able to put money aside for a trip in the summer.
LIBRA (AIR) SEPTEMBER 23 – OCTOBER 23 Work and business related issues are uppermost in your mind right now and, other than continuing on the path you have chosen, there is little you can do to push things ahead.
All will work out in the end if you remain positive and patient.
Financially you are managing better than you thought and can begin to stop worrying so much. This is a wonderful week to get away and spend some quality time with a person who is close to your heart. Relax and enjoy yourself for a change.
HINT: You have the courage to act and the intelligence to know when to step back.SCORPIO (WATER) OCTOBER 24 – NOVEMBER 21 Although you are ready to push forward, full steam ahead, there are others involved who are still content to ponder and muse. You can either find the patience to let things move at a much slower pace, or act aggressively and bring everything to a head.
The choice is yours! Time spent at home is much more pleasant these days and you not only enjoy the peace and quiet, but find that you can accomplish a great deal in a minimal amount of time.
HINT: Good time for examining what you like about yourself and what you would like to change.
SAGITTARIUS (FIRE) NOVEMBER 22 – DECEMBER 21 You are so exhausted and on such a short fuse that you are unaware of how you are affecting the atmosphere at home.
Take a close look at yourself and make the necessary changes before you damage your relationship with the people who mean the most to you in the world. Although you continue worrying about financial matters, the situation is well under control and not as problematic as it was even a few weeks ago.
HINT: Friday is a good day for spending an afternoon with close family and friends. Relax and enjoy yourself.
GEMINI (AIR) MAY 21 – JUNE 21 Take your time and gather all the facts before making any important professional commitments.
The slower you react, the better.
Your good name precedes you, but a major blunder now could set you back. So, double check everything and then ask the experts to take a look. On a personal note you need to take a step back and try to be more objective of your life. Blame and guilt are negative qualities which will only hold you back.
HINT: If you are an employer, take some time to examine your relationship with your employees and see what you can do to improve your connection.
PISCES (WATER) FEBRUARY 19 – MARCH 20 This is definitely not the time for making any hasty decisions.
You have a lot on your mind, and all that information coupled with your emotional involvement makes it almost impossible to come to any rational conclusion. Wait! In the days to come everything will straighten out and, once again, you will have a clear idea of what you wish to do.
Although time and money are a problem, you still can take short mini trips. The time away and change of routine will be wonderful.
HINT: Unexpected expenses are coming, so plan accordingly.
