Aries Beware of impulse purchases and offers that look "too good to be true." They probably are. Deception is in the air, whether the temptation is your own or that of someone else in your environment. This is a good time to concentrate your energies on a project that requires close and careful attention.
Taurus You will feel generally better if you will focus your attention on evaluation of your own life and actions. Don't take someone else's word for it and don't give the inner critic more value than it deserves. It usually lies and causes us to feel discouraged far beyond what is warranted. For a short time your energy is on a low cycle. Be kind to yourself and get some extra sleep.
Gemini Aspects this week are mixed. You have a temptation to perceive information through a darkened cloud of self doubt or criticism. If you notice this affect, remember that things probably appear worse than they really are. Give close attention to the communications you receive from those whom you have served through your profession or authorities. They have a far more positive attitude about you.
Cancer Aspects suggest you may be receiving positive news from those who are distant this week. Activities concerning distant places, travel, legal affairs, the Internet, and education are particularly favored. Having an open and optimistic attitude will serve you well at this time. Speak your piece and others will listen.
Leo Early in the week you may feel as though you are caught in a tangled web and unable to discern truth from fiction. Confusing or deceptive circumstances are swirling about you. Use caution concerning financial matters. Keep track of valuables, such as keys and wallets, and take care to use locks on property. Right now it is best to avoid borrowing or lending resources that you can't afford to lose.
Virgo Authority figures (including the one inside your head) may be hard to please this week. Concentrate your attention on family and social life instead. Aspects favor expansion of mental territory through travel or educational means. Persons of other cultures may be particularly beneficial and interesting at this time.
Libra Your partner or a family member may accidentally step on an old emotional wound. Don't overreact. It was not intentional. On another front, your talent may prove to be the missing piece in a larger professional puzzle. It is possible you will play the role of negotiator or peacemaker in a situation which is outside of your control, yet others listen.
Scorpio Use special care with tools and drive with focused attention. Mechanical objects are subject to breakdown during this period and your reflexes are not quite on target. You may be feeling disappointed with family members, but love life has positive opportunity, if you choose to take it. This is a good time to concentrate on subjects requiring study.
Sagittarius Events of this week may bring you help from insurance, debt, family members or the resources of others. A personal relationship is strained and in need of your attention. A decision is pending and you feel pretty clear about the ultimate answer, but it may seem better to wait for a time before you take action.
Capricorn Avoid the temptation to brood over heavy, negative issues this week. Use that energy instead to tackle a mental project that requires concentration or learning new data. Circumstances may be placing you in isolated conditions, but this is temporary and can be useful for finishing necessary mental projects. Ignore inner and outer critics. Later you can assess the worth of their ideas.
Aquarius Circumstances involving home, property, and family may be distracting this week. Concentrate on what you know to be accurate and don't allow others to discourage you from your ideals. Give yourself the opportunity to take a break and be with nature, preferably somewhere near the water. It will refresh your soul.
Pisces Drive and handle tools with caution. Your physical cycle is on a temporary low and your reflexes are out of sync. Meanwhile, love, romance and social life are upbeat and positive. You may have a temptation to brood over career and security issues. Give attention to what you can do to improve your situation, and focus away from what cannot be changed.
