CAPRICORN (EARTH) DECEMBER 22-JANUARY 19 Your thoughts turn toward financial matters and this is the week for you to begin analyzing your options. Trust yourself and don’t worry over what ‘might be’. You have things under control. Time spent with your partner and/or mate is always pleasant and this is the week for getting away from the crowds and enjoying some one-onone time. By the middle portion of this week you energy focuses on a project which is taking up more time than you imagined. Don’t hesitate to ask for help if you feel overwhelmed.
HINT: Wednesday is a good day for meeting with a Scorpio.
AQUARIUS (AIR) JANUARY 20-FEBRUARY 18 Always one to think things through carefully, this week provides a perfect opportunity to organize your thoughts and deal with business matters. Not one to jump into uncharted waters, you continue to ask important questions as you slowly but surely get closer to reaching your ultimate goal. As the week progresses you begin to pay closer attention to your finances and soon will be in a position to make a major purchase you have been considering. Good week for you to consider adding some new clothes to your wardrobe.
HINT: Although you dislike being dependant on others, this is the time for you to show your more sensitive and flexible side.
PISCES (WATER) FEBRUARY 19-MARCH 20 You are full of wonderful ideas and the time has come for you to sit down with another water sign for some serious discussions about a project which will be pleasant and fun for you both. You work well together as egos and rank flow smoothly from one to the other. At home you may discover it rather difficult to find a quiet corner where you can work and think as family members continue to horn in on your privacy without considering your need for solitude.
HINT: Financially things are definitely improving and will continue to do so as long as you keep your spending to a minimum.
ARIES (FIRE) MARCH 21-APRIL 19 This is the week for meetings and all forms of social gatherings.
Your communications skills are in top form and those who come into contact with you will be extremely impressed by your knowledge and experience. Don’t hesitate to share an idea you have been working on with an air sign. This person sees things from a different perspective and will help you the answers to some of your questions. As the week progresses, you may find yourself searching for a quiet corner where you can still be influential while avoiding the limelight.
HINT: Don’t let past insecurities hold you back.
TAURUS (EARTH) APRIL 20-MAY 20 Issues concerning your career are once again uppermost on your mind but this time you feel little if no pressure as you calmly search your options. You have put in your time and your good name and reputation has been honestly won. Relax, you will be pleased by the positive feedback which comes your way. Time spent with a special friend is just what you need to put some balance back into your life.
HINT: Financially you are in a position to make some changes concerning your home; be it a major renovation, purchase of some expensive appliances or perhaps a change of address is in the offing.
GEMINI (AIR) MAY 21-JUNE 21 You may discover this week that you prefer taking a back seat and letting others make the decisions for a change. Surrounded as you are by people you trust and believe in, there is no time like the present for walking away for a day or two in order to recharge and reorganize your thoughts. When dealing with another air sign you will be pleasantly surprised at just how pleasant your time together is. Monday and Tuesday are good days for taking a good look at your career, and for pursuing a project which has been sitting dormant for far too long.
HINT: Be patient with your partner and/or mate. This person will always guard your back.
CANCER (WATER) JUNE 22-JULY 22 Always prepared to look at the big picture, this week provides you with a window of opportunity whereby you can begin to push forward a project which is extremely important to you. There are so many people who believe in you, but more important, you believe in what you are doing and that makes all the difference. Take your time. You will instinctively know when the time is right to make your move.
HINT: Financially you continue working to put money aside and soon you will have the funds you need to make a major purchase.
LEO (FIRE) JULY 23-AUGUST 22 Instinctively you understand that although you are ready to move forward with a special project, you still have a few unanswered questions which need to be addressed. Time is working in your favor, so don’t rush. When speaking with a water sign pay close attention as you may have to read between the lines to understand exactly where this person is coming from. The good news is that he/she is definitely in your corner.
HINT: Your relationship with your partner and /or mate is much more pleasant these days and now is when you should sit down to share ideas and thoughts.
VIRGO (EARTH) AUGUST 23-SEPTEMBER 22 You continue to guard your finances carefully and are prepared to tighten your belt if and when it becomes necessary. As the months progress, you will be grateful that you were cautious today as major expenses are on the way and when the time comes you will have the funds you need. Even though you think you are right, sometimes the smartest thing is to back down and let someone else take the lead.
You won’t be sorry.
HINT: The latter portion of this week is perfect for spending time with either a sibling or a neighbor you particularly like.
LIBRA (AIR) SEPTEMBER 23-OCTOBER 23 This is a great week for working on anything that demands creativity, attention to detail and a lot of common sense. You have so much on your agenda these days and may find it difficult putting aside some quiet time to rest, unwind and regain your strength. Don’t hesitate to turn down an invitation in favor of taking care of your own needs. No one is more important than you are. A conversation with a water sign will prove, once again, just how strong and secure your bond is.
HINT: By the middle portion of this week your energy turns to working on a project that is long overdue.
SCORPIO (WATER) OCTOBER 24-NOVEMBER 21 Although you continue being careful about unnecessary spending you are definitely getting tired of checking prices, watching your bank account and thinking twice before you buy anything costly.

HINT: Be patient with a co-worker… not everyone works at your pace.
SAGITTARIUS (FIRE) NOVEMBER 22-DECEMBER 21 You have so much to do and not nearly enough time.
Whenever possible, don’t hesitate to reach out to a colleague or friend who can add a helping hand. Sometimes all you need is to sit down and do a little brainstorming.
