You may find it difficult to settle down and sleep at night, as your mind is working overtime.
New ideas and plans for an exciting project have you more motivated than you have been in quite a long while.
Fortunately, you will have more free time this summer than usual, and once you get organized you will be amazed at how much you can accomplish in a relatively short time.
HINT: Money and financial matters are always on your mind and although you don’t have as much cash available as you had hoped, you will still manage nicely on what you do have.
Don’t waste your time mulling over the past.
There is only so much you can control, and frustration and anger are only a waste of time. New day, new page, new start…so brush yourself off and enjoy the sunrise. Sunday and Monday you may feel an urge to splurge and be surrounded by exotic flowers, first-edition books and a plate of outrageously fattening cakes! Instead, meet up with a few close friends at your favorite restaurant and enjoy an evening where you are served and they do the dishes!
HINT: Justice and fair play are extremely important to you and you never accept less from yourself or from those who surround you.
It isn’t enough that you are right, you must also judge with whom you share your thoughts.
Recently you may have opened up and talked to the wrong people…people you know but who are also thrilled to share what they hear with anyone interested in listening. You can’t take your words back, but this time you need to learn from the experience.
Family business must remain inside the family.
HINT: Tuesday and Wednesday are sensitive days where money and finances are concerned, so double check before signing any important papers and pay attention to where you leave your wallet.
Change is on the way, and this time for the better! It is time that you sat back a bit and enjoyed the fruits of your labors. Besides, after worrying about everyone else for so long, it is time that you put your own needs at the top of the list.
The people you come into contact with this week will remind you just how fortunate you are in your friends and colleagues.
HINT: Financially you have to maintain a close watch on your situation, but here too all is under control and soon you will have some extra income, which is always a good thing.
Take a little time to mull over some past events. There may be something you overlooked or forgot along the way that needs attending to. You still have time to rectify the situation, but don’t ignore it.
As soon as you figure it out, you will be happy to note that it wasn’t earth shattering or monumental, but still you will feel better once that piece of business has been taken care of. By Sunday you will feel the need to get out and mingle with a few good friends. Enjoy yourself.
HINT: Time spent with a Capricorn will be good for you professionally and personally.
The past few weeks have been unusually filled with social functions and family events that have filled your heart and emptied your wallet! Never mind, this week things are back to normal and once again you are more in control. Your life is divided between your career and family, and for the most part your family has taken second place. Even though they understand, they always love when you come home early and you are all together. It doesn’t matter what you do, as long as you are there.
HINT: Every time you meet with a Leo, it is never boring…sparks fly!
Friction may arise between yourself and your partner and/or mate simply because you are both overworked and overtired. The past few weeks have been a whirlwind of social and professional events and although they were exciting, they have left you in dire need of some time off. Don’t worry, within a couple of weeks all will settle down and you will be able to sleep in and catch up on some of the quiet emotional space you so need.
HINT: Your relationship with another earth sign becomes more pleasant after Sunday.
Time spent with your partner and/or mate is just what you need to put some balance back into your life after a long day at work.
The mutual respect, as well as the deep feelings you share, are extremely special. Try to get away over the weekend, just the two of you, for some rest and relaxation. Financially things are definitely improving, and slowly but surely you are getting closer to your goal.
HINT: At work you may find yourself losing patience and frustrated due to an overload of work piling up on your desk. Within a week or two all will settle down, so pace yourself.
Overly sensitive, you may feel that those closest to you are taking you for granted and expect you to be there for them while not reaching out to help you. Never mind. You are stronger than you think, and the truth is that these people really care but are not accustomed to thinking that possibly you could use a helping hand. You want help…ask for it! Financially things are rather tight right now, but with some careful planning you will survive the summer a lot better than you had imagined.
HINT: Take some time to enjoy the company of another water sign.
You may discover that you are on a short fuse the first part of this week and that little things annoy you more than usual. Take a moment to catch your breath before you speak and say something you will be sorry for later. There is so much you have to do, and finding the motivation may be hard. You need a vacation. Interesting conversations at home with your partner and/or mate will help you focus and will provide some important information that will help you make a decision in the coming month.
HINT: Sunday and Monday are good days to spend with another fire sign whom you particularly like.
You will find that work is much more pleasant this week, and the camaraderie among your co-workers helps to alleviate the pressure felt over the past week or so. Things are not nearly as bad as you thought and, as a matter of fact, you are moving forward professionally according to plan. Financially, too, things are better, as you now have enough money to splurge a little and can stop worrying about any upcoming bills. This is a good time for reaching out to a friend you haven’t seen in quite a while.
HINT: By Monday you will feel a surge of creativity, and this is the time for starting work on a project that has been on your mind.
MAY 21-JUNE 21
Money and financial matters need tending to, and you’ve got to cut back on your spending if you want to end the month in the black. You were aware of upcoming expenses, but the price you were quoted was far from the actual fee you had to pay. By the end of the summer you will be back on track, so relax and work with your accountant or business adviser. When dealing with a water sign, remember just how sensitive they are and never forget just how great their memory is.
HINT: The first part of this week, plan to spend more time at home. You need the rest, and so does your wallet.
