As the days progress this week you will be happy to see that your hard work is beginning to bear fruit as things start falling into place. You are willing to put in long and hard hours in order to achieve your goals but not everyone in your family is pleased. Take some time this week to discuss your ideas with your partner and/or mate and make sure that they know just how much you appreciate them taking control of the ‘home front’.
HINT: Choose your friends wisely… the wedding is always joyful.
Your mind is clear and you are making definite plans for the coming months.
Time spent with family has its precious moments and the more flexible you are now, the better. An older relative is especially demanding and it will be up to you to decide just how much power you are willing to transfer over to this person. Generous to a fault, you are going to have to begin budgeting your funds and putting money into a savings account.
HINT: A door may be closing but just as you despair a window will open wide with a fantastic view.
After so much time dealing with unknowns you are finally in the driver’s seat. You may not know your final destination, but rather than worrying about what will be, sit back and enjoy the ride. The people you meet now will have a positive influence on you in the future. Remember just how special you really are.
Although you are not yet content with your financial situation, you are now in a position whereby you can begin saving.
HINT: A conversation with a partner and/or mate will be exactly what you need.
The busier you are right now, the better as you need to be physically active.
Don’t forget to pace yourself as you tend to work until you drop. Put some time aside for a project which demands a certain amount of precision and a lot of creativity. New people come into your life these days and where you may not become best friends, you can become trusted colleagues. When dealing with family members make your demands clear and stand firm.
HINT: Ideas for a new project can only be considered after you tie up some loose ends.
You seem to be running on a very short fuse for the first few days of the week.
Anything and everything irritates you and you can’t find a quiet corner. By the middle of the week the dust will settle and once again you can enjoy peaceful pockets of time with your family and friends. This is also a perfect time for tying off loose ends so that you can move on with your life.
HINT: Professionally things are moving in the right direction, but do your homework.
You will discover by the middle of this week that a heavy weight is being lifted off your heart and you can definitely see the light at the end of the tunnel. Now is the time for taking copious notes and carefully weighing the pros and cons before announcing your decision. You have so many people around you who depend on you; however, the time has come for you to begin putting your own needs ahead of others.
HINT: Time spent with your partner and/or mate is just what you need to lighten your mood.
You are ready to make your move and as all the pieces begin falling into place you can begin to enjoy the rewards of a job well done.
Difficulties from the past are quickly being resolved, so relax. Family living both near and far away appreciate all you have been doing for them and even if they don’t always say so they care. Tension at home eases up as the days go by and soon you will find your quiet corner where you can unwind and create.
HINT: Your mind is working overtime and rather than relying solely on your memory, begin taking notes.
You need to be surrounded by lovely things which don’t necessarily have to cost a great deal of money. Sometimes their emotional value is all that matters. This is the week for making a few positive changes in your house or flat which will make coming home pleasant, relaxing and enjoyable. Soon you will be ready to begin entertaining, but for the time being take a step back and enjoy the peace and quiet. You have earned every second.
HINT: A conversation with a fire sign will be interesting and very informative.
Life seems simpler these days and this is the time for slowing down and catching your breath. Mistakes were made and acknowledged; money was spent foolishly and lessons were learned. Enough! Turn the page and embrace the future. Pay attention to how you spend your money this week as you will have a tendency to buy things you really don’t need for an amount you really should not be spending. Be patient with a sibling and wherever possible strengthen the bridge you are building between you.
HINT: Pay attention while driving around near home this week.
The time has come for you to break out of your shell and reach for the stars! For far too long you have been living in the shadows, trying to carry everyone on your shoulders and the weight simply wore you down. Not anymore! This week you can begin enjoying yourself by doing things which bring you pleasure—simple things that don’t cost money but are precious to you. Carve out some quiet emotional time in order to complete a project which is close to your heart.
HINT: As the days progress, the level of co-operation with your partner and/or mate increases.
CAPRICORN (EARTH) DECEMBER 22 – JANUARY 19 In the coming weeks you will have to make some important decisions.
Don’t rush.
You will know when you are ready. Time spent with friends has made the days fly by but now you need to roll up your sleeves and get down to some serious work. Money and finances are not a problem but could be if you don’t begin putting some cash aside ‘for a rainy day’. When dealing with an employer try to be a bit more flexible…a smile will go a long way.
HINT: Once again your fabulous reputation precedes you and you can be proud of all you have achieved.
Old habits are very difficult to break but if you are to move on with your life you are going to have to leave some old baggage behind. Included in the list is taking care of people you now only don’t appreciate your effort but take it for granted! Although money matters continue to be a source of concern, they are not major and soon a new business venture will appear which will eliminate most of your worries.
Learn from your past so that you won’t have to repeat your mistakes.
HINT: The more focused you are in speech and deed, the more those around you will know how to react.
