You may find you are feeling rather thin-skinned and fragile. Reach out to a water sign and walk away from the earth signs.

MAY 21 – JUNE 21
Once again your career is on your mind and although you would love to walk away and find something new to occupy your time, you realize that this is not only impossible, but impractical.
A conversation with a water sign will help you see things in a much different light. Take your time and listen to the advice of the experts.
HINT: A project which you have been working on is progressing much slower than you had hoped. Unfortunately, there is not much you can do to speed things up.
Money and finances are, once again, on your mind as memories of your childhood, when you didn’t have the kind of financial freedom you do now, cause you to be even more frugal and careful this week. That does not mean, however, that the world will collapse if you purchase a lottery ticket. When speaking to a water sign remember that this person is exceptionally sensitive and has a very long memory.
HINT: Rather than staying home this weekend, get out and have some fun.
Over the past few months you have been learning the value of being self-sufficient and with a lot of hard work, you will soon be able to back off and not spend so many hours behind your desk.
Your instincts are strong, so listen to your heart. A lot of energy and thought is going into your home and family right now and somehow you need to find more time to spend quietly with the people you love. Leave your work at the office.
HINT: When dealing with your partner and/or mate, be flexible.

You are sensitive to the emotions around you and will find it difficult to turn off the energy you are absorbing from the people you love. Take a step back and remember, unconditional love has great healing powers. Financially you are beginning to feel much more secure and this is a good week for taking some of your hard-earned money and pampering yourself.
HINT: Sunday and Monday are good days for arranging important meetings.
JUNE 22 – JULY 22
Lately, you are so bogged down with little details, that you find it increasingly difficult to grasp the big picture.
Rather than feeling frustrated and depressed, walk away and give yourself more time to think. You will be amazed at just how much you can accomplish that way. Family members continue to turn to you for advice and you are always ready with a hot meal, a sturdy shoulder and a couple of good ideas from your vast fund of experience.
HINT: Time spent with your partner and/or mate at the beginning of the week will not be wasted.
Although you would love to throw caution to the wind, and go on a spending spree, or even refurnish your home, you know that is impossible right now.
What you can do, however, is begin making small purchases, one at a time. You will be amazed at just how different your surroundings will be when these new items are added.
Knowledge and studying are always important to you and soon you will be offered an opportunity you won’t be able to resist.
HINT: It is always preferable to discuss your plans with your partner and/or mate, but this time the final decision must be yours.
You find it nearly impossible to keep your thoughts to yourself and wherever you come into contact with people who are not as professional as you are, you don’t hesitate to express your opinion. On the one hand, it shows just how work oriented and devoted you really are.
But, on the other hand, you may be accumulating a few colleagues who not only don’t share your views, but resent your voicing them.
HINT: This weekend is the perfect time for you to stay home and catch up on some much needed rest.
Although luck continues to smile in your direction, this is definitely not the time for sitting back and trusting the fates to supply all the answers.
Instead, roll up your sleeves, do your homework and be prepared to answer some difficult and complicated questions. A lot is going on behind the scenes, so pay attention and try to avoid getting involved in office gossip.
HINT: Be patient with your partner and/or mate. This person is dealing with their own problems and may not be as sympathetic as you would like.
Endings and new beginnings are on the agenda and you are going to have to work hard in order to remember that when a door closes a window opens. Don’t be afraid of change. The time has come for you to work on a project which has been begging for completion.
Don’t aggravate yourself if you can’t keep to your diet or exercise routine this week. It happens.
Next week will be better.
HINT: Stick close to a Libra or a Sagittarius…their sense of fair play and justice will guide you.
This is the week for gaining knowledge as you have the patience now and the joy of learning new things. Don’t rely solely on your memory, no matter how phenomenal it is—take copious notes.
People are prone to listen to you at this time, and now is a good opportunity for you to get your ideas across and open an honest and serious dialogue with a person who is in a position to help you professionally.
HINT: money and financial matters have caused you many sleepless nights, but things are definitely improving.
Your thoughts and energy turn to money and finances as you continue trying to decide which path you wish to take in the coming months. For now, you are settled and working hard. Later, you can check your options, ask some questions and begin to move in the direction you will choose. The good news is that your options are far better than you had hoped for, so relax and take your time.
HINT: Don’t let past insecurities hold you back. You are not the same person you were then, and are much stronger and smarter now.
You have a great deal on your mind right now as both friends and future goals are accented.
You still have many more questions than answers, but don’t get upset. Over the next few weeks everything will fall into place and you will find your direction, once again. Your family stands firmly behind you and is ready to jump in and lend a helping hand or a shoulder to lean on whenever you feel the need.
HINT: Soon you will find yourself talking with more people and trying out different ideas in your mind.
