Busy week for you and you may find it rather difficult juggling all the assignments scheduled for the next few days.
Don’t hesitate to reach out and ask for help. You will be amazed at how many people are ready to lend you a hand. The time has come for you to break out of your old shell and let the new you emerge.
Say ‘Goodbye’ to the past and embrace the future. Financially you need to watch your expenses as a major event is coming which will drain your funds if you are not careful now. HINT: Time spent with family is exactly what you need in order to relax and pamper yourself.
Relax and just be yourself and all will fall gently into place. Sometimes you tend to underestimate yourself and your abilities and think back over past mistakes and disappointments. This week is a perfect time for you to appreciate past lessons, use what you have learned and trust yourself. This weekend is a perfect time to invite a special friend over for a homecooked meal. Time spent in this person’s company is always a joy.
HINT: The middle portion of this week may bring some pressures at work, so plan accordingly.
All your hard work is about to pay off as your dedication, experience and high work ethics will move you closer to attaining your ultimate goal. This is the time to trust yourself and sit in the driver’s seat.
No need to be a passenger sitting in the back any more. Financially you are in a much more stable position and soon will be able to make a major purchase you have been dreaming of. A conversation with a good friend will help you uncover the answers to some questions you have been dealing with. HINT: Pace yourself and all will get done on time.
This is the week to keep an open mind; listen carefully to all sides and when you are ready trust yourself to make the right decision. You understand very well what is at stake and are prepared to put in the time and effort needed in order to turn your dream into a reality. When sitting in a meeting pay close attention to what a Capricorn is saying. This person not only has your best interests at heart but is extremely knowledgeable.
HINT: The middle portion of the week is perfect for spending time with a family member or close neighbor.
This is the week to contemplate what you value, what you need and how you aim to achieve your goals. Along the way remember to be open and tolerant of other people’s views even if they are removed from your own. A good, honest debate can shed a great deal of light and understanding if all parties keep an open mind. When all is said and done you will have added information which might prove invaluable as you get closer to making an important decision. HINT: Rather than spend time at home you may feel the need to get out and mingle this week. Good friends, good food… what could be better?
MAY 21-JUNE 21
The time has come for you to take a good long look at your relationships.
Some have fallen by the side and others you have chosen to walk away from. This week marks a period whereby, if you are honest with yourself, you will come to some interesting conclusions concerning the part you played in these decisions.
The same holds true to your relationship with your partner/and or mate. But, rather than dwell on your differences, enjoy the different dimensions you each bring to the team. HINT: Financially you need to be a bit more frugal in the weeks to come.
No matter how hard you try, you will never be perfect, so rather than examine your real or imaginary flaws take a step back and appreciate just how fabulous you really are. Self-doubt will disappear once you learn to balance work, play, home and family while maintaining a healthy daily routine which allows you to squeeze in enough rest along the way. If anyone can juggle the load you carry, it is you! So take a step back and enjoy the ride. HINT: Money and financial worries are becoming far less troublesome as you continue feeding cash into the bank.
The time is right for you to get out from under that cloud and shine! Once you let go of insecurities you will discover that writer’s block evaporate. You will find the answers to some of the questions you have been searching for for so long, And, more than that, you will feel free to discover new and interesting subjects you have often wanted to explore. Old friends are the best, so try to spend some time reminiscing with people who knew you ‘way back then’. HINT: Be prepared to put in extra hours this week as work is accented.
The time has come for you to sit down and contemplate how you can improve your relationship with a family member. Unresolved issues need addressing and although you may not feel you are the one to reach out a hand in truce, actually you are the only one who can make a difference. Financially things may not be as good as you had hoped, but they are not nearly as bad as you had thought. HINT: A conversation with another earth sign may begin on the left foot, but in the end you will be glad you stuck it through.
This week you may spend some time reminiscing on your past, and if you take a long look you will see that your successes far outranked your failures, so be kind to yourself.
Everyone else knows just how special you really are. This is a good time for connecting with people and letting your communication skills flourish. Financially you continue watching your situation carefully but there is not much more you can do at the present time to improve things. Go with the flow and trust yourself. HINT: An honest broker and a believer in fair play you will be listened to when you finally decide to speak.
Try not to let your bank balance rule your feelings of who you really are. There are always ups and downs and during this difficult time you are actually doing a marvelous job. So be a little kinder to yourself.
That said; don’t walk too far away from the experts and people you trust. You will learn so much by being in their company. This is a perfect time for socializing with family and friends. You enjoy the interaction and need a little time away from your desk. HINT: A conversation with a Cancer will help you see things from a different perspective.
Don’t let people or situations rob you of your self-confidence.
In the still of the night you know who you are and what you have already accomplished. Besides, everyone else is amazed by your calmness under stress, your ability to see both sides of a situation as well as your kindness. A great deal of activity is centered on money and finances this week so pay close attention and keep a watchful eye on your bank account.
HINT: The last half of this week is a good time for finishing up a project which has been sitting on the shelf for too long.
