No matter how much you try to cut back on your spending, something always pops up which can’t be postponed or avoided. So, for the time being you will have to cut corners elsewhere and pay very close attention to your financial situation.
Within a number of weeks all will fall back into place, but for now leave your credit cards at home. You derive a great deal of pleasure from little things and time spent with a few close family members or dear friends will make this week speed by.
HINT: The middle of this week is perfect for clearing off your desk at home.
You are almost ready to put your own needs at the top of your list, and it is about time too! Denying yourself sets a certain example, but definitely isn’t fun. Relax. You have the time and the money, so enjoy yourself for a change. Speaking of money, your financial situation is moving exactly as you had planned and within a month or so you will be free from a major debt you have been dealing with.
: A conversation with your partner or mate will help you to tap in to your emotional side as you begin to understand that logic is simply not enough.
Your thoughts return to the past and are bitter/sweet as you remember people who are no longer with you or a part of your life. The good news is that nature abhors a vacuum, and the void has been filled with wonderful new family and friends who make getting up in the morning worthwhile. Financially you continue along the path you have chosen while constantly searching for new and better ways to improve your monetary situation.
HINT: A conversation with an earth sign will be a little uncomfortable at first, but in the end will prove well worth the effort.
Meetings and social functions are high on your list of priorities, even though you would rather relax at home. The people you come into contact with now will provide you with important information or be a valuable contact in the future, so accept the invitations.
Financially you are doing your best to cut back and are watching your bank balance carefully. Soon there will be enough money for you to make a major purchase you have been dreaming of.
: Your relationship with a Virgo is much more pleasant these days.
You have finally discovered a way to blend business and pleasure, work and family and still get a few hours of sleep at night. Although you continue working overtime, you definitely see a light at the end of the tunnel and it is getting bigger and brighter as your good name and reputation continues to open important doors. Financially you are always thinking of new and better ways to improve your situation and soon you will find the help you have been looking for.
: A conversation with your partner or mate always helps, so take some time off to enjoy each other’s company and brainstorm.
You have been working so hard at achieving a certain goal and everyone close to you is definitely on your side.
Things will work out, so don’t mistrust yourself or give up hope. It is simply that sometimes you don’t have control over a situation. Trust and faith will prove worthy partners. Financially you are cutting it close but are managing to pay your bills and still have a little left over for yourself each week.
HINT: When dealing with an older member of your family, be patient. This person is not nearly as gruff as he seems and truly cares.
You continue gathering information and checking out your options and feelings concerning the path you have chosen as your career.
In the weeks and months to come you will have enough information to make your final decision.
In the meantime, remember that every step you take brings you higher up on the ladder. Financially all is well and you can now begin to pamper yourself and your partner or mate.
: You may be called upon to deal with some property which belongs to your family as your opinion is valued greatly.
Money and family continue to be the two subjects which keep you up at night as you are helping both young members of your family as well as an elderly relative. Remember to take some time off for yourself as this week is a perfect time for you to work on a special project which will bring you a great deal of personal satisfaction.
: The middle portion of this week will find you spending more time with a Virgo. Try to remember how much this person cares rather than dwell on the curt manner in which he speaks.
You are so ready to spread your wings and all this waiting is causing you to feel both frustrated and angry. This is the time for gathering information, making important contacts, asking questions and taking copious notes. Within a number of weeks the path before you will clear and you will be ready to make your move. Financially you need to take care not to spend too freely without checking your bank balance.
For the time being all is well, but you don’t want to get into debt.
HINT: Time spent with a Scorpio will be very interesting this week.
You are more than ready to spend some quiet time at home surrounded by the people and things you treasure. You are a very gracious host and everyone is happy to receive an invitation to spend an evening at your place. Financially all is moving according to plan and the months you spent being cautious are behind you now. Your creative juices are bubbling and this is the time for beginning a new and very interesting project which has been on your mind for quite some time.
: Tuesday and Wednesday are good days for spending time with your partner or mate.
