Rather than relying on your memory, take the time to make clear notes and check them often.
You are definitely on the right track and soon all will fall gently into place your good name and reputation precedes you and in the weeks to come a window of opportunity will arise that demands careful scrutiny on your part. Your thoughts turn to someone living far away and this is the week for renewing the connection.
HINT: Try to have a little more understanding when speaking to a sibling. Your differences will only enhance the relationship if you can find a way to be a bit more flexible.
Your thoughts wander to the past, but this time you review your successes and the people who helped you along the way; making this trip down memory lane a very pleasant one. You are a true and loyal friend and those privileged enough to be included in your inner circle know how lucky they are.
Things are moving quickly and soon a life-long goal will be achieved. Enjoy it—you deserve it! Financially you continue watching your expenses closely as, slowly but surely, you cross of a few items off of your ‘wish list’.
HINT: When speaking to a fire sign try to be patient. This person’s mind works quicker than his mouth.
You may feel rather frustrated this week as things are moving much slower than anticipated.
Take a step back and let the situation progress naturally.
If you feel the same in a couple of weeks, just walk away. Things will work out in your favor, so trust yourself and have faith. Although you are usually careful with money this week you may have an urge to splurge. Go ahead; you know you can afford it. When speaking to an elderly member of your family don’t hesitate to share your thoughts and feelings. This person has much experience and will give you good, solid advice. The rest will be up to you.
HINT: Time spent with your partner and/or mate may not bring the expected results but you will not be disappointed!
FEBRUARY 19-MARCH 20 Try not to be so sensitive and take everything to heart.
You have done a fabulous job and can afford to back off a bit and let others take the wheel. At work you continue putting in long, hard hours and in the coming weeks will appreciate a few days off. Use this time productively and finally finish a project which has been pushed into a corner for far too long. After months of watching your finances you can begin to breathe easy where money is concerned. This is your week to get out and mingle—meet old friends and make new ones.
HINT: There is still time for you to register for a course or two which you are interested in.
You have been spending a great deal of energy on meeting and social functions. This is the week to realize that nothing catastrophic will happen if you bow out gracefully here and there. As the week progresses, you will come into contact with someone who will remind you that all your hard work has not been in vain. This is a perfect time to plan a trip. You have the time and the funds.
HINT: Your relationship with an air sign may not be as smooth as it was, but if you take a moment to reflect, you will remember what attracted you to this person in the first place.
After so many months of working overtime, you may not like it much but have gotten used to the routine. And, most of all, you enjoy seeing the positive results and respect you receive from your employers and co-workers. The name you build today will sand you in good stead for years to come. Your relationship with your partner and/or mate is solid and growing stronger as you learn to recognize each other’s strengths and weaknesses.
HINT: Plans to redecorate your home may be postponed for awhile as you work out the details found in the fine print.
MAY 21-JUNE 21
This is the perfect week for sitting down and discussing future plans with your partner and/or mate. Together you can work out the details necessary in order to turn a dream into a reality.
For the time being you need to continue to stick to your budget and even cut back a bit wherever possible. Problems with a sibling may take a little longer to work out than you expected.
HINT: Wednesday and Thursday are good days for ignoring the large picture while working out the fine points. Although you don’t really enjoy this type of work, there is no one else to do the job.
JUNE 22-JULY 22 Everyone continues to turn to you with their problems looking for a good word, a smile and an optimistic answer. That has never been a problem for you. The difficult part is walking away from it all and finding the strength to continue seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. But your motto has always been ‘better to be needed then needy’. Financially you are in a much stronger position now and if you continue to save will soon have the funds you need for a special gift you wish for yourself.
HINT: Your relationship with your partner and/or mate is great this week.
LEO (FIRE) JULY 23-AUGUST 22 You need to take a deep breath and rid yourself of unnecessary and unwanted people and things. Those are the people who make you feel drained and who are never satisfied. Enough. Soon the void will be filled with the type of men and women who deserve to be in your company. By the end of the week you will be happy to stay home and relax after days of meetings, social and professional obligations and just plain work.
HINT: A conversation with another fire sign will not only point you in the right direction but will light a fire that has been waning lately.
AUGUST 23-SEPTEMBER 22 All your good plans and ideas may need rethinking as things are not moving nearly as quickly as you hoped or needed.
This time you are not completely in control and rather than feeling angry and frustrated, take a good hard look at the situation and use it as a learning experience.
You may find it difficult to relate to a male member of your family right now. This person is simply being obstinate and not ready to budge from his point of view.
HINT: A conversation with a Libra is just what you need in order to put some balance back into your life so arrange a meeting as soon as you can.
SEPTEMBER 23-OCTOBER 23 Financially things are stable but you are not nearly satisfied with the status quo.
In the weeks to come you will not be able to do much to improve the situation but by the beginning of the New Year things will change for the better. Your relationship with a Scorpio continues to amaze you and the time you spend in each other’s company is magical.
Plans to improve your living conditions may be delayed a bit but once the kinks have been worked out you will be free to move ahead with your plans.
HINT: A conversation with a sibling over the weekend will prove, once again, just how close you two really are.
SCORPIO (WATER) OCTOBER 24-NOVEMBER 21 For some time you have had the feeling that you are treading water and the frustration over not really getting anywhere is exhausting. Forget it, and begin to trust yourself.
Things will begin to move when the time is right and you will not be disappointed. You have a small but very loyal group of friends who are always ready to lend a helping hand. This week you will have the opportunity to do something really special for one of them.
HINT: When in doubt trust your intuition and you won’t go wrong.
TIP FOR THE WEEK: Good week for asking questions, collecting information and formulating your next move.
