The past few weeks have been extraordinarily busy ones and you are ready for a break from all the excitement, the responsibility and the effort that was necessary to ensure that everything was up to your high standards. This week you can finally take off your shoes, put your feet up and start thinking about taking off those extra pounds you enjoyed putting on.
HINT: Tuesday and Wednesday you may feel a spurt of energy to get things done, but pace yourself. Your intuition is high these days and you may be slightly more sensitive than usual…if that’s possible!
Take some time to relax and enjoy reminiscing about the past few weeks. So much has happened. Little things, not earth-shaking things, but still enough to fill your mind and heart with joy and thankfulness. You are lucky to be surrounded by many good, honest and loyal friends who are happy to share your happiness and ready to lend a helping hand if you ever need one.
This week take one special friend out for lunch to show your appreciation.
HINT: Thursday you may feel a bit fragile and lacking in self-confidence. Don’t worry, by the evening you will be your old self again.
Whenever you have a quiet moment this week, you will find that you are pleased with yourself and everything you have accomplished over the past three or four weeks. You ended up spending a little more money than you had bargained for, but whatever debt you incurred will be settled over the next month. Time spent with family is always a joy, especially the younger generation.
HINT: You will have to budget your time carefully during the middle portion of this week if you want to get everything done, as last-minute changes will wreak havoc with your carefully planned schedule.
This is going to turn out to be a rather special week for you, as one of your dreams finally comes true. You have waited so long and have put your own needs on hold for so long that it may take you a little while to absorb the fact that your day has come! Enjoy every minute; you have definitely earned it. Those closest to you are proud of your journey and share your joy. Over the weekend you will enjoy being outdoors and if possible take a road trip. The open air is just what you need to relax and clear your mind.
HINT: A conversation with a Sagittarius will help you see things from a different angle.
Don’t waste your time worrying about what you might have forgotten to do. When the time is right it will all come back to you, and that is when you can make the minor changes necessary. In the meantime, just let your mind do the work while you are busy doing other things. This weekend provides a perfect opportunity for you to share some of your thoughts and feelings with your partner and/or mate. You have a way of expressing yourself simply yet eloquently, and people listen when you speak.
HINT: Tuesday and Wednesday are good days for taking a little trip.
You are definitely overextended right now, but don’t waste time blaming yourself. Once you take a step back and re-examine where the money went, you will realize that nothing was wasted or foolishly spent. Unexpected expenses need dealing with, and you handled the situation with your usual grace and goodwill. Over the next few weeks you will be able to cut back and reduce the debt. Trust yourself, and all will be well.
HINT: Take some time to get away from your desk and enjoy your family. The latter portion of this week will provide a break, and that is the perfect time to get away for a day or two.
A great deal of energy and thought is centered on your partner and/or mate; this is the week to close the doors, turn off your phones and sit down for some serious brainstorming. Up until now you have simply been too busy and too tired to concentrate for a long time, but that is over and plans need forming and information needs checking. Together you make a fabulous team; and once you get going, there’s no stopping you!
HINT: While you’re at it, try to remember to take a break and catch up on some much-needed rest.
By biding your time, you not only saved yourself from a potentially embarrassing situation but you also managed to accomplish exactly what you set out to do. It is true you have been working long, hard hours, but don’t think for a moment that your effort has not been noticed or appreciated.
HINT: This is a good week for tying off loose ends, taking a step back to double check your work, and then by the middle of the week you will be able to enjoy an evening with your partner and/or mate at your favorite restaurant and perhaps a concert or a play as well.
You need a vacation! Perhaps not a formal trip to some exotic place, but a few days at home…a “staycation” where you can read a book, chat with your friends, order in some food and call someone special over to share it with you. You are exceptionally creative now, and this is the time to begin your novel, redecorate your home, plant a garden or even begin teaching that class you have been working on for so long.
HINT: Money and finances are tight right now as last month was especially expensive, but if you cut back now you will weather the summer just fine.
Better to be busy than bored, so take out your diary and begin to set up meetings and social gatherings. You have a lot to do and not much time left to finish up all you have on your list, so roll up your sleeves and get going! A conversation with a water sign will be much more intense than you had planned for, but if you listen carefully and hold your ego in check you will be amazed at what you learn. This is the week to stand up for what you believe in, even if it means that some people you know may not agree with you.
HINT: Be patient with a Libra. They certainly are patient with you.
You never jump into uncharted waters, so leave all those doubts behind you. You have done your homework, you asked your questions and double checked the answers. Relax and enjoy. Professionally your good name precedes you, and both your co-workers and employers are very happy to have you on board. The knowledge you gain right now will stand you in good stead for years to come. Financially all is well, and you even have enough left over to pamper yourself and someone dear to you.
HINT: Take a bit of time to meet with an older member of your family who always loves to see you.
MAY 21-JUNE 21
Great emphasis is placed on money and finances this week; and rather than get angry or frustrated, make a list of questions, meet with the professionals and once you have some answers, breathe deeply and begin to make the changes necessary to get you back out of the red. Tuesday and Wednesday are especially sensitive days financially, so avoid retail therapy at all costs. If you don’t have the cash in your pocket, then window shop.
HINT: Time spent with a fire sign is just what you need to spark your energy, so make a phone call or two. •
