For weeks all your energy has been focused on dealing with the tension created by family members.
The cloud has finally dispersed and this is the week for brushing yourself off, for taking control of your life once again, and for enjoying the peace you have earned.
No one compares to you when it comes to defending those you love.
Bravo on a job well done! Past fears are quickly disappearing and it is time to close the door and move on.
HINT: Sometimes you have to consider the source rather than listen to the words you hear.
Pace yourself; count to ten; consider the reaction to your action and then make your move. It isn’t enough to be right if you cause others to be on the defensive rather than open to your ideas. Money and finances are always on your mind but you seem to be on top of the situation if not in control.
Your relationship with a water sign is improving daily as you quietly reach out with a peace offering.
HINT: You have so much on your mind that sometimes it is difficult falling asleep. Relax. Things are finally moving in the right direction.
Although you are still concerned about money and finances, this is not the time to panic! You are in a much better position now than you have been in quite some time and the relationships you have formed will soon turn into profitable business ventures. Your natural optimism and sense of fair play stand you in good stead as you move forward with your plans. Time spent with a sibling only strengthens your relationship and should be nurtured.
HINT: Monday and Tuesday are days for making lists and taking notes.
This is the time for c o n t e m p l a t i o n rather than for action. You have a great deal on your mind and your mood swings from optimistic to pessimistic and back again. Once you are more in control of your life, things will move smoothly, but for now you are doing the best you can and doing it well! When speaking to your partner and/or mate, make your needs clear in order to avoid any misunderstandings along the way.
HINT: Professionally things are not only settling down but moving ahead faster than you had anticipated.
Between your professional obligations and your personal commitments you are frazzled and on a short leash. Don’t let your exhaustion cause friction between yourself and your family. It isn’t their fault. The best you can do is to take a step back and understand that nothing will happen if you are away from your desk for a day or two.
Towards the end of this week things will settle down and that is when you can get back into your routine.
HINT: Financially you are spending more than you had anticipated. The good news is that you are aware of the situation and it is under control.
It isn’t what you say, but how you say it that may cause friction between yourself and a family member.
It is true that you care but being brutally honest may not achieve the end results you were aiming for. At work your good name and excellent reputation continue to bring compliments and now is the time for establishing solid work relationships with a few colleagues you trust and respect.
HINT: Plans you had made a few months ago may not be working out exactly as you had anticipated, but don’t be sorry…you had to give it a chance.
Finally after so long you everything seems to be falling into place, and if it isn’t exactly as you had planned, it is still better than you had feared. The people you meet in the weeks to come will have a very positive influence on you professionally and new friendships are in the offing as well. Now is the time to believe in yourself and know just how special you really are.
Everyone else knows that already!
HINT: Financially too the situation is improving daily and soon you will have the money you were seeking for a trip abroad.
Take some time off this week to work on a special project.
You have so many fabulous ideas and all you need is to find a quiet corner where you can create and let your imagination soar. Time spent with your family can be tiring and push you to the limits but at the end of the day you are always there to lend a helping hand.
This is a good week for getting out of the house and treating a family member to dinner or coffee and cake at your favorite restaurant.
HINT: Start putting some money aside for a special treat.
Generous of spirit and heart this is the time for you to take a close look at your immediate goals.
Before making your move, double check your plans…you have time. The people closest to you physically may not be those closest to your heart and as the weeks go by bridges will be strongly built connecting you to a person or two who you have sorely missed. A discussion with your partner and/or mate will bring joyous results as you both agree on so many things.
HINT: Although you move around a lot, there is no place like home.
Things are definitely looking up and this is a perfect week for making new friends and strengthening professional acquaintances. You are a valuable asset, and the more you believe in yourself the better.
Financially too you situation is improving and soon you will be free to make a purchase or two which you have been wanting for so long. Your relationship with a sibling is pleasant and this is the time for enjoying each other’s company.
HINT: Obstacles which have been keeping you from attaining your goals will soon be a thing of the past as you forge ahead, slowly but surely.
Retain therapy has its advantages, but the rush is short-lived, whereas the bills may take a very long time to pay. If you don’t have the cash, then don’t go shopping. In the weeks to come you will enjoy speaking with a fire sign you know. This person sees things from a much different perspective than you do and you will be amazed at the results a few open discussions will bring.
HINT: Your creative juices have not dried up, they are simply resting and recharging. In the days to come you will be your old self, once again.
You are so busy taking care of everyone else and so tired and sensitive that a word out place may cause you to retreat into your shell. You are not nearly as fragile as you feel and after considering the source, you will realize that all was said in good faith and not meant as an insult. Take a few days off during the middle portion of this week to take care of correspondence and other writing which has been waiting to be worked on.
HINT: Thinking of saving money is the first step, but the major move in the right direction will be when you begin to stop spending.
