TIP FOR THE WEEK: Don’t make promises you can’t keep—not to others and not to yourself.
By MARALLYN BEN MOSHEARIES (FIRE) MARCH 21 – APRIL 19The people closest to you may not be your family but the family of dear friends who are always there to lend a helping hand or a shoulder to lean on—as you are for them. This is a very good week for entertaining and being entertained. Forget the diet and enjoy yourself. Your work on a special project continues to bring you joy and recognition and soon you will be able to cut back and relax some. In the meantime, don’t hesitate to ask for help, if you need it.HINT: A conversation with a partner and/or mate will provide the piece of the puzzle you have been searching for.LEO (FIRE) JULY 23 – AUGUST 22You continue working hard and are ready for a vacation even though you know you don’t have the time or the money to get away. The problem is that you are simply exhausted from taking care of family matter as well as carrying the major workload at your job. In the weeks to come you will be able to take a step back and relax and enjoy yourself, but for the time being you have to do your best to keep up the pace.HINT: Your relationship with another fire sign is pleasant and now is the time for working together on a project of mutual interest.GEMINI (AIR) MAY 21 – JUNE 21Time spent with your partner and/or mate will be helpful both personally as well as professionally as you continue working toward a common goal.AdvertisementThe more you define each other’s roles the smoother the relationship and easier the work will be.

Of course you want to help, but your own needs must come first even if they are simply the need for peace and quiet.Professionally you are still working overtime, but the satisfaction you gain is well worth the effort.HINT: When speaking with an elderly member of your family try to stay calm and remember to be patient.CAPRICORN (EARTH) DECEMBER 22 – JANUARY 19This is a perfect week for getting things done. You have the information you need, the drive to succeed and soon you will have the extra spurt of energy to get things moving along. Time to get rid of old insecurities and to reach forward secure in yourself. Although you continue monitoring your financial situation carefully, there are times when you simply need to splurge a bit and open your purse a little wider.HINT: In the battle of work versus play, work always wins out…except for Sunday and Monday of this week.SAGITTARIUS (FIRE) NOVEMBER 22 – DECEMBER 21You are so exhausted and on a tight rope that not only are you suffering but those closest to you are affected as well. Lack of sleep plus responsibility and pressures make you easily irritated and a simple conversation with your partner and/or mate could turn into a raging argument.

Pay close attention to finances and wherever possible, cut back on needless spending.HINT: A conversation with an air sign will help you see things from a different perspective.VIRGO (EARTH) AUGUST 23 – SEPTEMBER 22As much as you would love to ease your load, for the time being you have no alternative but to see the job through to the end. In future try not to take on additional work before double checking to see if you really have the time and energy to give it your best. Family members are always on your mind and this week you will have the opportunity to do something extra-special for one of them.HINT: Before committing to making any major changes in your home, get a second and possibly even a third opinion.LIBRA (AIR) SEPTEMBER 23 – OCTOBER 23You have done your best to keep everyone happy and in the interim have left yourself exhausted and sleep deprived.The time to change that situation is now!

You may not have as much free cash as you would like, but you are able to complete the month within your budget and that already is a great improvement.HINT: The time has come to get out of the house and socialize.SCORPIO (WATER) OCTOBER 24 – NOVEMBER 21You may have the feeling that all the weight of the world is sitting on your shoulders but the fact is that you are making great headway and soon will be able to take a step back and enjoy the fruits of all your labors. There are a few people in your social circle who lighten your heart and this is the perfect time for you to invite them back to your home for a light meal and pleasant conversation.HINT: People living far away are near your heart and soon you will be together again.TAURUS (EARTH) APRIL 20-MAY 20There simply are not enough hours in the day and although you are making great headway you feel swamped and stuck.The truth is that you are making great headway and both your peers and employers are amazed at the good work you are doing in such a short period of time. The middle portion of this week is perfect for getting out and mingling with old friends and new.HINT: Financially you are managing quiet well, but still find it difficult putting any serious money aside.AQUARIUS (AIR) JANUARY 20 – FEBRUARY 18Because you continue working long, hard hours, this week you will prefer inviting people back to your place for an informal meal, rather than sitting in an impersonal public place.

You are not the same person you were then and are in a much stronger position today both professionally and personally.HINT: The middle portion of this week is best for arranging important meetings.
