LIBRA (AIR) SEPTEMBER 23 – OCTOBER 23 You have a great deal to do and not nearly enough time to get everything done. For the next few weeks your social activities must be curtailed as you roll up your sleeves and get down to business.
You may discover that someone close to you is not as loyal as you imagined. The truth is you are not really surprised. Money and financial matters continue to improve, albeit slower than you wish.
HINT: Take some time during the middle portion of this week to rest and regain your strength.
SCORPIO (WATER) OCTOBER 24 – NOVEMBER 21 Your mind continues working overtime as you continue searching for answers. If you make a list you will be surprised to note that your accomplishments far outweigh your failures, so relax. This is the week for arranging important meetings as you are at your best and people are ready to listen to you.
HINT: When dealing with an authoritarian figure, don’t let your pride get in the way of your better judgment.
SAGITTARIUS (FIRE) NOVEMBER 22 – DECEMBER 21 After weeks of working overtime you are more than ready to take some time off and simply enjoy yourself with your family and close friends. You know who you can trust and your sense of fair play will work in your favor this week. Before making a commitment to an air sign, double check your options carefully.
HINT: Your relationship with a sibling or a neighbor is not as strong as it used to be and it will be up to you to decide just what you wish to do about it.
CAPRICORN (EARTH) DECEMBER 22 – JANUARY 19 New people, new projects and new social activities continue to keep you busy and your days and weeks are flying by.
There is still time for you to make a decision concerning a trip in the spring, so take your time. When dealing with a family member, remember this person’s bark is much worse than his bite and he really is on your side.
HINT: Good week to curl up in a corner of your favorite couch with a good book.
AQUARIUS (AIR) JANUARY 20 – FEBRUARY 18 Finally you are beginning to make headway and are about to make your move. Your choices are many and there is no shame in taking your time. As the weeks progress, the information you gain will only prove that you have made the right decision. You don’t always have patience with family members who talk a lot but don’t really say anything, and unfortunately, this is one of those weeks.
HINT: Tuesday and Wednesday are good days for dealing with paperwork.
PISCES (WATER) FEBRUARY 19 – MARCH 20 The time has come for you to take a step back and catch your breath. Nothing will happen if you are not at the helm for a day or two. Although you are conscious of your financial situation, it is not always easy to stay within your means. For the next week or two you are going to have to watch your spending a little more than you have been lately.
HINT: Don’t wait for a friend to reach out to you—pick up the phone first or send an email. You won’t be sorry.
ARIES (FIRE) MARCH 21 – APRIL 19 Take your time. You always seem to be in a rush lately and if you are not careful you will either do or say something that you might regret in the coming weeks. Make a list of what needs to be done and systematically check each item off. You will be amazed at how simple things are, once you are better organized. Money and finances are not the big problem that they were but that does not mean you can spend indiscriminately.
HINT: An older member of your family would appreciate hearing from you.
TAURUS (EARTH) APRIL 20-MAY 20 You have so many ideas and plans but things are moving much slower than you had anticipated.
Use this time wisely to think of the questions you need to ask and find the people who are qualified to give you enlightened answers. You have wonderful friends and are always ready to invite people over for an impromptu meal or a lavish dinner.
HINT: This week you will be given the opportunity to do something really special for someone you care about.
GEMINI (AIR) MAY 21 – JUNE 21 People are attracted by your quick wit and endless energy, but this week you are going to have to slow down and pace yourself. You have spread yourself so thin that there is barely enough time to get one project completed to your precise specifications and you have three more waiting in the wings.
HINT: Think twice before speaking your mind to a water sign as this person is extremely sensitive and may not appreciate your candor.
CANCER (WATER) JUNE 22 – JULY 22 C o n v e r s a t i o n s with people will be a lot more pleasant this week as you discover just how much you have in common. Put some time aside for working on a project which involves writing and an interaction of ideas as your communication skills soar.
HINT: Although you have always put the needs of others above your own, lately you have been putting your own name at the top of the list and it is about time, too.
LEO (FIRE) JULY 23 – AUGUST 22 You are becoming much more practical and are not so prone to spend money on things you really do not need right now. By the end of this month you will be in a better position financially, and that is when you can begin to relax a little more where your finances are concerned. Friends come and go and lately you have been shortening the list of people who you wish to include in your inner sanctum.
HINT: Try cutting back on your busy schedule during the middle portion of this week.
VIRGO (EARTH) AUGUST 23 – SEPTEMBER 22 Always practical and stable, you hesitate to get involved in anything you haven’t researched through to the end. This week, however, someone who is charming and full of compliments may try to persuade you to work with them on a project which may not be as good as it originally seems. Ask some serious questions and you will soon know what is best for you to do.
HINT: A problem from the past can be dealt with simply as long as you
remain calm.
