AQUARIUS (AIR) JANUARY 20 – FEBRUARY 18 Plans to move or renovate your home continue to be on your mind and soon you will be able to put your ideas into action.
In the meantime, get as much accurate information as you can and, when in doubt turn to the experts. Professionally, you continue to shine and all who come into contact with you are impressed, once again, by your work ethic and your determination to get all the facts right. Your relationship with a fire sign may not be as smooth as you would like, but it is certainly not boring!
HINT: Time spent with friends was wonderful, but now it is time to get back to work.
PISCES (WATER) FEBRUARY 19 – MARCH 20 Everyone seems to turn to you with their problems and worries not taking into consideration how you feel after they have gone. Deal with what you can handle and leave the rest to others. Losing sleep and worrying won’t help anyone and is certainly not healthy for you. This is a good week for meeting with close friends for a few hours of pleasant conversation dreaming and planning.
HINT: When dealing with an elderly member of your family, try to remain calm and be as patient as possible.
This person cares and means well, but forgets just how busy you are and how tired sometimes.
ARIES (FIRE) MARCH 21 – APRIL 19 Money, finances and particularly property are definitely on your mind and need addressing soon.
Conversations with family members may only confuse matters, so before you get involved assemble all the facts and take precise notes. You may not be able to please everyone this time, so do what is necessary in order to please yourself. Try to find a positive outlet for some of that built up energy you are experiencing now.
HINT: Change is slow in coming but it is on the way.
TAURUS (EARTH) APRIL 20-MAY 20 You have an innate ability to turn your house into a home and your office into a welcoming space where co-workers as well as clients are happy to congregate and share ideas. This week will provide a perfect opportunity for you to add some balance into your busy schedule whereby you can spend some quiet time at home either relaxing or sharing a meal with a few special friends. Always aware of your financial situation, you continue to put money aside for a special project in the not-too-distant future.
HINT: Be prepared to lend a helping hand to your partner and/or mate towards the end of this week.
GEMINI (AIR) MAY 21 – JUNE 21 So much is going on all around you that you are finding it difficult to concentrate. A combination of emotions plus past insecurities work to erode your sense of self esteem and it isn’t easy right now to see that the glass really is half full. By the middle portion of this week there will be a definite shift of energy and that is when you can get your best work done. In the meantime use this time for gathering important facts and figures and making lists of important details.
HINT: A conversation with an earth sign will last forever if you don’t establish some strong boundaries.
CANCER (WATER) JUNE 22 – JULY 22 This is a good week for socializing and entering into some serious conversations with people you trust.
Working as a member of a team has always been profitable, but this week you need to shine on your own. All the background work you have done will begin bearing fruit and soon you will realize that the struggle was not in vain.
Although money is still tight, you do have enough to begin planning for a trip in the fall. There are people you long to see and now is the time for checking out schedules and prices.
HINT: A conversation with a friend will bring a pleasant and interesting result.
LEO (FIRE) JULY 23 – AUGUST 22 Your good name and reputation precede you as more and more people are beginning to recognize your good work and high ethical standards.
Always willing to put in the extra time, you have set a standard that you can be proud of. The middle portion of this week finds you busy with meetings and social functions.
The change of scenery will do you good and the interesting people you meet will add to the pleasure.
HINT: A conversation with your partner and/or mate over the weekend will iron out some minor differences of opinion.
VIRGO (EARTH) AUGUST 23 – SEPTEMBER 22 You have so many wonderful ideas right now and although you cannot possibly follow up on all of them, you can, however tuck some away for a further date. In the meantime, sit down with a member of your family to discuss some of your plans. The sharing of ideas will bring interesting and even exciting results. A conversation with an acquaintance could turn into an argument if you are not careful. The question is whether or not you are interested in investing so much time and energy into this person.
HINT: This is a good week for taking a close look at your career.
LIBRA (AIR) SEPTEMBER 23 – OCTOBER 23 Change is on the way and although a natural nester, you have nothing to fear from the new circumstances and opportunities which are coming your way. Weigh your options carefully and take your time making a formal commitment. You have gone through a lot this past year and have learned a great deal about yourself and those you count and/or counted as friends. Take some time to be with a sibling. Together you are a formidable team and sincerely enjoy each other’s company.
HINT: Money and finances continue to weigh you down, but there is a definite light at the end of the tunnel.
SCORPIO (WATER) OCTOBER 24 – NOVEMBER 21 You have a great deal of inner strength and this week you will amaze even yourself at how much you can accomplish in just a short period of time. There are still one or two options which you are considering and you may need to show a little more patience as delays and minor setbacks are expected. When speaking to an earth sign, make certain the lines of communication between you are open as this person has a lot on their minds and may not be listening as closely as they should.
HINT: Accent on partnerships this week and that means both professional as well as personal and perhaps both of them.
SAGITTARIUS (FIRE) NOVEMBER 22 – DECEMBER 21 Work and more work continue to take up much of your time and if you are not careful may cause your health to suffer; nothing serious, but enough to keep you home and resting for a few days.
In the meantime, watch your diet and make sure you get enough rest. Time away from loved ones only makes you realize just how much you care and how lucky you really are. This is the week for telling someone special just how much they mean to you.
HINT: Although you are aware of your financial situation, you still need to curb your spending as much as possible.
CAPRICORN (EARTH) DECEMBER 22 – JANUARY 19 An excess of meetings will play havoc with your schedule, but there is nothing you can do about it but smile and get on with it. Take careful notes and be prepared to voice your opinion.
People pay attention when you speak and respect your experience and professionalism.
Extremely creative, this is your week to shine! Whatever forms you choose, enjoy the process and relish the results. When dealing with an irritating neighbor, the best you can do is smile and walk away.
HINT: A Taurus you know is busy dealing with personal things and may not have the emotional free space for you this week. All will ease up in a few days.
