Aries Do your best to steer clear of authority figures this week. It will be nearly impossible to please them. Plan to stay with routine or normal activities as much as possible. Beginning new projects or taking fresh initiatives that require cooperation from others will be hard to accomplish. That does not mean you have a bad idea, only that the timing is poor right now.
Taurus The adage for you to remember this week is "you catch more flies with honey than vinegar." If you let your pleasant, sweet self lead the way you will attract help and assistance with whatever you need. On the other hand, if you are aggressive or forceful you will meet with major opposition and interference.
Gemini The outcome of a decision you made in favor of self-improvement early last summer is no doubt very clear now. If you followed through on your promises, you are reaping happy rewards. Meanwhile a conflict concerning family or partnership matters may appear to be in a logjam due to the rigid attitudes of those involved. Do your part to resolve it by shifting to neutral if possible.
Cancer Your aspects are mixed this week. You may feel pressured concerning decisions about health, legal matters, and/or travel and education. Your thoughts and your heart are not together, and it might be better to table it until a better time. Meanwhile a project or initiative undertaken last summer is generating a positive outcome for your reputation and possibly for your career.
Leo The difficulties and confusion of last week are probably behind you now and improved clarity is beginning to emerge. Aspects favor connecting to the deeper parts of yourself in whatever way makes sense to you. Some options might be consulting a trusted friend or advisor, journaling, prayer, hypnosis, or meditation. You know what will help you.
Virgo You may be surrounded by those with stubborn and unyielding attitudes during this period. Before you point a finger in anyone's direction, cross-examine yourself for a disguised version of the same symptoms. Obstinacy and narrow mindedness can be contagious. These traits appear when we believe we must defend ourselves or our position. Do not attack and do not fight. This will shrink the issue to a manageable size.
Libra Your gift with words will serve you well this week. Use your natural tact and don't hesitate to say what you see or think. You can penetrate directly to the heart of the matter and will have cogent thoughts that leave a positive impact in their wake. Life with siblings, partner(s) and/or lovers is particularly profound, intense, and also rewarding at this time.
Scorpio Dealing with partners and other significant relationships may be unusually tricky. You may find that important persons in your life are in need of your help right now, which may be thoroughly time consuming. If possible, avoid borrowing valuables from others and lend only to those whom you trust completely.
Sagittarius Life for you is complicated right now and you don't need me to bring that to your attention. The situation with partner(s) and/or contract negotiations is fraught with pressure and difficulties. Routine work is difficult to accomplish. However, you do have favorable aspects concerning creativity, children and possibly romance. One or more friends or business associates offer help and encouragement.
Capricorn Old emotional wounds may be reopened this week by the unintentional behavior of children and/or lovers. Take your feelings seriously and give them due attention. But avoid overreacting to present circumstances. Don't let yourself be entrapped in an illusion that a major injustice has just occurred. The real pain is from long ago and that is the place to start your work toward healing.
Aquarius Issues concerning children and/or your community contacts have been highly pressured in the past year. There no doubt have been days or weeks when you felt the effort was serving no useful purpose. However, this week you may actually see signs of a change for the better. Don't allow your skeptical attitude to interfere. You won't have lost anything if this change evaporates, and a positive reception from you may encourage its growth.
Pisces Give special thought to the lead paragraph this week. Even though you may have dropped the destination as it was originally conceived, the trip took you somewhere that is now yielding a positive outcome. The struggles along the way have given you a certain inner strength that you might not otherwise have gained. You probably have come to realize the education is more valuable than the contents of the experiences.
