CANCER (WATER) JUNE 22-JULY 22 This week you need to find some inner strength when dealing with your partner or mate. You are ready to move and they need to think more. By Tuesday you should have found enough common ground to move forward. At least now you are not nearly as sensitive as you used to be. Financially all is actually well. You simply have to continue being careful over the summer months, and by the fall all will return to normal. HINT: A special project you are working on gives you more and more pleasure as time passes. Trust your instincts – this one could be a winner.
LEO (FIRE) JULY 23-AUGUST 22 This is the week to clean house – not of things but of people. For too long you have been surrounded by a few friends who bring you down more than guard your back and the time has come. Not all friendships last forever and you will feel much lighter once you have severed the connection. The middle portion of this week will be especially busy with important meetings and social functions. Keep your wits about you. No one commands the spotlight like you. HINT: Financially you have managed to cut back a great deal, and if you continue in this fashion all your worries will be behind you.
VIRGO (EARTH) AUGUST 23-SEPTEMBER 22 A chance meeting with a fire sign is the last thing you are expecting now and this person has been made well aware of your feelings toward them. However, the time has come to end the feud, clear the air and make peace. You can only be this hurt by people you sincerely care about, so climb down from the tree and shake hands. By the latter portion of this week you will be extremely busy with career issues that need to be addressed. You have the facts and figures, don’t worry. HINT: Financially all continues moving according to plan.
LIBRA (AIR) SEPTEMBER 23-OCTOBER 23 Take some time off over the weekend to relax with your partner or mate. This person has proven time and again just how loyal and proud they are of you and right now you have the time, and more important the funds, to do something very special for them. Toward Wednesday you will be pressured to make a decision concerning your career and need to find a quiet corner in order to think. Financially your situation continues to get stronger but still needs your close attention. HINT: A conversation with a sibling will help you to remember just how lovely your connection is. Soon you will be able to spend more time together.
SCORPIO (WATER) OCTOBER 24-NOVEMBER 21 Financially you have the feeling that you are treading water and all your hard work and diligence simply isn’t enough to move you ahead. A little more patience is necessary before you will be able to see the fruit of all your labors. Plans to travel are definitely on the agenda, but there are still a couple of things which need to be worked out. You don’t have to decide yet. When dealing with another water sign you will be surprised to see just how energetic they are for a change. This is the week to tackle a project with is of interest to you both. HINT: If you don’t mean it – don’t say it.
SAGITTARIUS (FIRE) NOVEMBER 22-DECEMBER 21 You have been under so much pressure for so long and only you could have managed to put all the pieces in place for a successful conclusion. Be kind to yourself. All those who know you are amazed at your work ethic, your care for others as well as your ability to do and say the right thing. Sometimes one simply has to climb a mountain or two to see the sunrise. Financially all will be better than you hoped if you remain optimistic and trust yourself. HINT: Take some time off to pamper yourself and your partner or mate.
CAPRICORN (EARTH) DECEMBER 22-JANUARY 19 Things are definitely moving along according to plan, and as you continue tying up loose ends, you release more and more free time for yourself. Enjoy this mini vacation and do what makes you happy for a change. Financially no surprises are expected, so relax. Prior obligations continue to take up some of your time, but you actually enjoy the work and the people involved. A conversation with an elderly member of your family will bring a smile to your heart as once again you realize just how important this person is to you. HINT: Take your partner or mate out to dinner this week and get out of the kitchen.
AQUARIUS (AIR) JANUARY 20-FEBRUARY 18 Your days are full, your nights are pleasant and you are grateful for all your blessings. At the same time, you continue making plans to advance in your career. You have planned this well and when the time is right all the pieces will fall into place. For the time being take a step back as there is not much more you can do. Toward the end of this week you will be busy entertaining and being entertained by some close friends. You are an excellent host and everyone loves to spend time with you and your partner or mate. HINT: Financially you are managing your finances very well and can relax.
PISCES (WATER) FEBRUARY 19-MARCH 20 There are days when you discover you are a bit sad and lonely as you think of someone dear who no longer is with you. It may take a little more time before you are back to your old self again, but even the sad moments are precious and filled with memories. You continue being busy making decisions and sorting through things that only you can deal with. Try not to do too much at once. You have plenty of time. HINT: Financially all is better than you thought and you can begin to relax where money is concerned. It has been a long time coming, and bravo you!
ARIES (FIRE) MARCH 21-APRIL 19 You are anxious to make your move and have managed to deal with all the minutiae that were your responsibility. The delay will be caused by another member of the team. Think twice before sounding off as once you have said it you will never be able to take it back. Financially you need to be a little careful this week. Family matters cannot be ignored and you will need to find some time to socialize. Not everyone you meet will be someone you wish to see, but you are good at hiding your feelings when it counts. HINT: Monday is a good day to talk to your financial adviser.
TAURUS (EARTH) APRIL 20-MAY 20 You are pleased with the way things are going and everything that is under your control is being dealt with at an even and leisurely pace. There are moments when you need to put in extra time to meet a deadline or two, but usually you manage well. You will have the opportunity to do something special for a colleague which will actually bring you a great deal of pleasure. Time spent with your partner or mate will be peaceful, pleasant and relaxing this week. You both need the break. HINT: Financially you continue to try putting something aside for a trip in the not too distant future.
GEMINI (AIR) MAY 21-JUNE 21 You have taken on a bit more than you can handle well on your own and this week you need to call in those team members you trust to lend a hand. No one will turn you down and will actually be happy to help. Your relationship with a sibling leaves a bit to be desired even though you have come to terms with your differences. There is no time like the present to pick up the phone and arrange an evening out with an old, dear friend. It has been far too long since you had some free time to enjoy each other’s company. HINT: Financially you are managing well.
