JULY 23-AUGUST 22 You are a very busy person and this week is no exception. The problem arises when you realize that you have precious little time left for yourself. You have the time, you have the energy and ability and all that is lacking is for you to stand up and say ‘no’. Once you have a pocket of quiet emotional space, you will be amazed at how much you can accomplish. And, even more important, how much joy you get out of creating something new from scratch. HINT: Financially you have almost completely weathered the storm. Keep a close watch and you will have the money you need at the end of the month.
AUGUST 23-SEPTEMBER 22 Your need for security is enhanced this week and, for you, security can be found behind the scenes making certain that you are safe finan - cially and can provide for those you love. Not all your dreams have been realized, and you may find it difficult convincing others to follow your path. It will be up to you to decide whether or not it is worth the energy getting upset over a difference of opinion. Be patient with a Leo this week as they are extremely busy and not as ac - commodating as you might wish. HINT: Restless, you need to keep moving and thinking. But pay attention to the weather and know when to get out of the sun.
SEPTEMBER 23-OCTOBER 23 Just when you need it most a check or some cash appears giving you the breathing space you were searching for. All will be well, so relax. Always anxious to please, you put your own need on hold without hesitation. Your friends quickly be - come family and those included into your inner sanctum know how lucky they are. By the beginning of this week your thoughts turn to getting away from the crowds in order to catch up on some rest and some work that has been piling up on your desk. HINT: A conversation with an earth sign will help ground you and put things back into perspective.
OCTOBER 24-NOVEMBER 20 You may be feeling lethargic and not your usual peppy self this week. The weather combined with all that has been going on in your life lately has taken its toll and now is the time for you to take a step back and get out of the fast lane. Although a conversation over the phone does not have the same impact as a face-to-face meeting, you may have no alternative due to a last minute change in your plans. Unless the appointment can be postponed to a later date, you may just have to rely on a phone call. HINT: Money expected may be delayed, but it will eventually arrive.
NOVEMBER 22-DECEMBER 21 There are never enough hours in the day but lately you are putting more balance in your life and spendng more time at home with family and friends.
