Aries This week is best given to handling routine affairs, cleaning and organizing files, closets, and desks. As you approach September 11 there may be slowdowns in activity due to interference beyond your control. You have a temporary dip in energy level and immunity, so get plenty of rest and take vitamins. Avoid allergens.
Taurus Give attention now to finishing projects and completing necessary details. Your attention shifts by the end of the week to issues of relationships, partnership, and contracts. The first item on the agenda will probably involve concerns about resources you share with others -- time, money, or energy. These are the issues that will require tending through the end of this year.
Gemini Put on your running shoes for the first few days of this week. There are more multiple details, people challenges, errands, and phone calls than normal, even for the Twins. As you approach the 10th, interruptions will settle and things return to pleasant conditions. Love life and romance are favored.
Cancer Don't expect peace and quiet for the weekend. Phone calls, family news and lots of activity will absorb your attention. As the week progresses, you will have more time to center yourself. Travel is favored, especially through the work week. If your physical body doesn't go elsewhere, you may be escaping through a good book and solitude, or spending time with a special person.
Leo It would be easy to see everything through rose colored glasses this week. You may be seeing reality, and then on the other hand, maybe you are seeing what you want to see. Challenges concerning children and/or finances make escape look especially appealing.
Virgo Mechanical breakdowns may interfere with your sense of peace this week and authority figures may be challenging your work. Assuming you have been a "good" Virgo and handled all details, you can demonstrate that all is well. Beware of the inner Critical Parent. It is lurking close by and waiting to pour water on your positive attitude.
Libra This is a good weekend to finish projects and clear the decks for a shift in focus. From September 7 to the end of the year your attention will be required in organizing financial matters, handling affairs of property, and evaluating resources. It is possible there will be extra drains on income through the fall. Spend wisely now.
Scorpio A project conceived in December 2001, is coming to full fruition at this point. If you have built on a solid foundation, your efforts will be recognized and applauded. It is possible that someone who perceives you as a threat may challenge you to a metaphorical duel. Remain dignified and sidestep the defensive position for best results.
Sagittarius You may be experiencing a reenactment of an old scenario, particularly in relation to authority figures. Before you go into reflex mode, consider responding differently than you have in the past. It is time to let go of some old pattern. Beware of pie-in-the-sky expectations, contracts, and promises.
Capricorn Social and romantic life is favored this week, particularly over the weekend. You may be mixing business and pleasure in a pleasant combination. This is a good time to discuss issues within a relationship because you are steady of mind and likely to be realistic. You intend to keep your promises.
Aquarius Surprises or unexpected changes are in store for those involved in education, travel and legal affairs. Be prepared for anything. Your partner and/or significant others are highly supportive at this time. Waterbearers with clientele will enjoy a temporary increase in business. Don't give away your work or you may be hornswoggled later.
Pisces Be cautious about making promises during this period. You have a strong tendency to think you can do more than is realistic. Your soul is in need of nurture at this time. Follow up on desires that offer inspiration and spiritual guidance. Pour more energy into whatever self-improvement routine you need. It will give you additional strength and self-esteem.
