Relationship with siblings or other family members may be strained at this time. Never at a loss for words, is this, however, the time for reticence, discretion and restraint.
Once you have spoken in a moment of anger, you may feel better, but your words are out in the atmosphere and can never be taken back again. You may feel a need to splurge this week, but your better instinct will not allow you to spend money foolishly. Not even if it is something you want for yourself.
HINT: Old hurts are difficult to forget, but until you do, you will be carrying them around and they are growing heavier by the day.
Things are finally looking up and you are definitely moving in the right direction.
You may not see a major change in your finances just yet, but keep on track and soon all your hard work will bear fruit. A conversation with a Sagittarius will help you see things from a much different perspective, as this person is as generous as you are, but a lot more daring. Plans for renovating your home or for making a move, may take a little more time than you expected.
HINT: Great week for meetings and social functions. You are articulate and speak with determination and conviction.
Although you may be feeling a certain lack of confidence these days, don’t let your insecurities hold you back.
You are a wonderful family member and a great friend, even if you do get a little fragile here and there. Thinking about past mistakes is good as a learning exercise, but don’t forget to pay attention to all those successes you had along the way. Put some balance back into your thoughts and you will see that the glass is definitely half full! HINT: When dealing with someone important to you professionally, listen carefully and chose your words as if each one cost money.
So much is happening and there are not nearly enough hours in the day.
But, you must slow down and stop pushing yourself so hard. There are days when no one wants to be near you, your fuse is so short. Get extra help or back off and realize that nothing will happen if there is a day or two delay.
Besides, your mental and physical health is much more important. Financially, you may feel a bit overextended right now, but in the coming weeks all will work out according to plan.
HINT: Spend a little time with a Libra…you have much more in common than you realize.
DECEMBER 22-JANUARY 19 Your sense of justice and fair play are exceptionally strong right now but don’t count on others to understand what is going on in your mind. For that you have to arrange a meeting or pick up the phone and speak from the heart. Remember, if you ask a question there is more than one answer, and not necessarily that one you had hoped for. Be patient.
All will work out in the end.
HINT: Monday and Tuesday are good days for relaxing at home. But, if you get bored there are plenty of people who would love to share a pizza and some stimulating conversation.
JANUARY 20-FEBRUARY 18 You have a great deal on your mind, but for the moment are content to let things flow normally at its own speed. You have plenty of time before you have to make a decision and in the meantime, you continue to gather information and double check how you feel and what you really want. Your partner and/or mate are always ready to lend a helping hand or brainstorm and will, as usual, come up with some interesting ideas and information. Good to know this person always has your back.
HINT: Professionally you continue to make your mark and you are so busy the days simply fly by.
FEBRUARY 19-MARCH 20 Try not to turn a tiny bit of information into a really serious situation. In the first place you don’t have all the facts. And, in the second place, deep down in your heart, you know all will be well.
When in doubt reach out to another water sign. This person is very intuitive and cares deeply about you and your family. Try to find a pocket of space this week to withdraw and relax.
You need some time to yourself and if you don’t take it, no one is going to give it to you.
HINT: Financially you may be stressed a bit but all is well and under control.
MARCH 21-APRIL 19 Some days you wake up wishing you were all alone on a desert island where it is quiet and where you don’t have to problem solve all the time. If it isn’t the people you work with it is younger members of your family who are certain you know the answer to every question and can give them their heart’s desire within a blink of your eyes! When you take a step back you know you are pleased that everyone trusts you and believes in you.
HINT: Pay attention to where you leave your wallet and keys on Wednesday and Thursday of this week.
APRIL 20-MAY 20 You may have the feeling that your life has become too heavy…to routine… too predictable. On the other hand, isn’t it a pleasure that your life is such? You are not one for surprises and are the last one you know who would jump into the pool without checking the water first. All you need is a break and a little vacation would provide a very welcome respite. Financially all is well and you can even begin to splurge a bit on yourself and on that special person in your life.
HINT: Time spent with a Leo will be anything but boring.
This is a perfect week for you to get things done. Your powers of concentration are high, your ability to communicate is strong and you are excited about a new project. Pick your team carefully as although you will not be surprised, someone you trust may disappoint you. Financially things are always on the front burner in your life and no matter how hard you try being frugal, something always turns up to ruin your plans.
HINT: A conversation with a sibling may be just what you need to get grounded once again, so make plans to meet.
Finally you are able to juggle all the different things that are happening in your life to the point where you have some time set aside just for you! And, even more exciting you have begun to forge ahead with a project which has been in your mind and heart for over a year. Don’t regret any lost time. You have learned a great deal and time is in your corner. Financially you may be a bit stressed by the end of the month so be careful how you spend your money now.
HINT: The less involved you are in your partner and/or mate’s drama the better.
You will find that time spent quietly at home thinking of the past and remembering some people who are no longer with us is a lot more peaceful and pleasant that you imagined. Childhood memories are wonderful and can be used to your advantage now that you are an adult. Write a book! Paint a picture! Compose a song! Anything and everything is at your disposal. Be brave, you can do it! Your partner and/ or mate may use you as a sounding board this week. Listen more and speak less. You won’t be sorry! HINT: Time spent with a younger member of your family is just what you need to light that spark back in your heart.
