As much as you would love to get away from it all, once you take a good look at your bank balance, you will realize that for now you need to stay close to home and continue trying to put money aside.
This is also a good week for you to get in touch with your financial advisor and set up a meeting. Relations with another fire sign could prove to be frustrating and one of you simply can’t make up your mind.
HINT: A conversation with a Taurus will prove to be enlightening and gratifying, so arrange a meeting as soon as possible. You won’t be sorry.
Take your time before making an important decision.
You are definitely on the right track, however there is a bit of confusion as to how you are going to put your thoughts into action. By the end of this week you will have the necessary information and that is when you will be ready to make your move. Financially all is as expected and you continue to be on top of the situation.
HINT: Sweet memories from your past are encouraging and this is a good time to reach out to both professional as well as personal friends and colleagues.
MAY 21-JUNE 21
Good time to think back over past mistakes in order to discover the problem and avoid it now.
You are in a far better place today and with a little effort on your part you should be able to accomplish almost everything on your list this week. Financially you are always rather pressured at the end of the month, but you do manage to get everything arranged at the last minute. An old friend from your past is on your mind, but this time it is better to leave things as they are.
HINT: A little tension is expected between yourself and your partner and/ or mate the first few days of this week.
Finally you are in the zone and are moving ahead with some important projects. Don’t berate yourself for taking so long. Sometimes it isn’t easy to find the quiet emotional space necessary and a little break is always good. Financially you are not where you would like to be but have done all that is possible, so relax and continue to avoid any unnecessary spending.
HINT: A conversation with a Capricorn will solidify the bond between you even more as you recognize, once again, just how much you appreciate and respect one another.
There may be a little disconnect between what you want to do and what you can do this week. No matter the cause, it is better to wait it out. In the meantime there is so much you can do that brings you pleasure and enhances your feeling of self-confidence. Then when the time is right you can leap forward and forge ahead. Financially you are being very cautious right now and spending money only on what is absolutely necessary.
HINT: Professionally you are considering making a change either in your job or the position you have at your job.
There is a gap between what you want to do and what you can do and the gap is widening.
Rather than get upset and frustrated, take a step back and examine the events of the past few months. Something was left undone or put aside for a better time and then ignored and forgotten. One you have tied of a few loose ends, you will not only feel more in charge but will feel a great deal more confident in your choices.
HINT: Financially all is under control and its time you loosened the strings of your wallet and splurged a little.
Although money is still tight and you are watching your situation closely you feel happier right now than you have in a long time.
The people closest to you are warm, sociable and encouraging rather than some from your past who were just critical. As you move forward with your plans you are happy to take things slowly and relax here and there along the way.
HINT: A conversation with a sibling will present some interesting ideas which should be examined closely in the months to come.
Try to avoid a confrontation between yourself and a fire sign during the first couple of days this week. Nothing good will come out of arguing and will take more time and effort to mend than is worth the effort. Financially things are a bit muddled and you still have the feeling that for every two steps you take forward you are forced to take one step back. Relax. In the coming weeks all will smooth out.
HINT: Be patient with your partner and/or mate as they may be so busy with personal obligations that they aren’t as considerate of you as they usually are.
So much is going on in your life these days that you may find it difficult falling asleep at night. Your mind is working overtime and you have so many ideas and plans for your future.
Don’t push yourself so hard! You need to take a few days off to relax, unwind and enjoy some private time with your family and close friends. When you least expect it, a fabulous offer will come your way. Financially you are stressed but secure in your plans.
HINT: Your relationship with an elderly member of your family is growing stronger and time spent together is special to you both.
This week you will have the chance to recognize something you didn’t do and to fix it. Once that is done, you will feel a great sense of relief and be ready to move forward.
Remember, don’t look back.
Your past is over and you aren’t there anymore. Financially you are watching your situation carefully and may be maxed out to the limit. However, when you do need the cash it will be there for you. A conversation with a parent will bring a smile to your heart and this is a good week for some one-on-one time together.
HINT: There is nothing you can’t do, so just be patient.
When debating whether or not to invite people over, discuss it first with our partner and/or mate.
Together you can plan a great party when it is convenient for you both. In the meantime enjoy some quiet time together in the peace and quiet of your home. By the end of the week you will be ready to get out and meet people professionally as well as personally and this is the time for arranging some important meetings. Financially all is under control, mainly due to the fact that you keep your eye on everything.
HINT: If you are thinking of taking a course or two, or perhaps even considering a further degree, now is the time to look into it.
Before you begin a new venture, take some time off to simply relax. Your mind is as tired as your body and you need to unwind before you take off again. Family obligations don’t leave you much room for yourself and it will be up to you to set up some boundaries. Financially you are far from where you wish to be, but not so far that it is impossible to attain your goals over the next few months. It is up to you just how much more you can cut back and yet keep everyone happy.
HINT: A meeting with a Cancer is long overdue.
