This week’s theme concerns opposites; ego versus emotion, fact versus fiction, thinking versus feelings. It is our very nature to be influenced by both yin (active, external) energies and yang (passive, internal) energies. How we balance these energies is important to finding the “center” that promotes growth and understanding.
ARIES The battle between your ego and emotions starts right at the beginning of the week and carries on through the weekend. You find yourself increasingly dissatisfied with your daily grind and feel that nobody is listening to your point of view. The key is to try and analyze your situation intellectually. Yes, it may be time for a change but it is important to remember to move from a position of strength not weakness.
TAURUS Restoring the balance between thinking and feeling is required this week. Over analyzing the situation without regard to others’ feelings and emotions could cause a real issue mid-week. It’s important to know the source of information that is influencing your decision-making. Is it credible or merely gossip? Consider alternatives to resolving things; your approach might not be the best approach.
GEMINI Trying to be all things to all people, especially where family is involved, could add undue stress this week that could also impact your health. What is important is to level set expectations, yours and others, on what can and cannot reasonably be accomplished. Late in the week there is a chance for a pleasant interlude. Enjoy the moment and don’t deceive yourself as to what it may or may not lead to.
CANCER Good old fashioned romance and sentimentality make this a great week to show your love interest just how much you care. If the two of you have been arguing recently, take time, especially near mid-week to sit down and truly discuss the issue. Recognizing your own emotional vulnerability can go a long way to calming the waters and helping you both remember the pleasure of each other’s company.
LEO This week finds you completely lost in work and career matters. The challenge will be to honestly evaluate how best to expend your emotional and mental energies to get maximum results. Keep in mind that stress (real or imagined) can drain your internal resources and actually slow down your progress. Schedule in some “r and r” time to recharge, renew, and refocus. Do without doing and it will all get done.
VIRGO Finding someone who can compliment your visionary approach to life is the essence of your activity this week. Having a partner (business and/or romantic) who can provide stability and direction will act as a balance to your conceptual view of how things should be. Late in the week, you will encounter some kind of opposition that the two of you can overcome by sharing responsibility. Two is always better than one.
LIBRA Your hidden resources will come into play right at the outset of the week. Handling the unexpected will produce a dramatic shift in your plans; although profound, this change will be positive. In a very real sense, this will be a spiritual inheritance that you can now claim as your own. Celebrate with an intense passionate encounter with that special person late in the week; you both have earned this time.
SCORPIO This week is about reconnecting internally on a spiritual or philosophical level. Recently your “vision” about where you are and where you want to be, on several levels, has seemed cloudy. Travel would be beneficial although financially not practical at this time. As an alternative, pick a topic that interests and learn about it. What is truly important is not the destination but the journey and the growth of spirit that occurs.
SAGITTARIUS Travel is likely particularly involving work or career. This is a time to lead by example as there are those who are watching your progress. Remain humble even in times of good fortune. In doing so, you can attract allies who can help you climb the career ladder. What is required to make certain that you retain the sense of challenge in what you are doing. This is an important factor in keeping you motivated.
CAPRICORN A potent blend of intensity and need make romantic adventures highly likely this week. Looking beyond the immediate passion could lead you to discover just what it is that has kept you from truly getting close or letting someone else get close to you. If you can let go of the shadows of the past, you just might find a shining light of the future that awaits you. Dare to be different than you were and see what happens.
AQUARIUS There is a sense of isolation this week that can have both positive and negative impacts. Early on, an argument with your love interest increases your desire to withdraw and call back your scattered energies. An unexpected event at this time could also complicate things. Rather than making any rash decisions (that you might regret) let your emotions and thoughts calm down. A clearer picture will emerge.
PISCES The urge to go on an idealistic quest is strong this week. While tilting at windmills may seem like a good idea, it’s important to remember that some of those windmills tilt back. Emotional volatility is likely mid-week that can impact your health as well as your spirit. Try not to take the world personally. Find some quiet time to sort out fact from fiction and let your conscience and your intuition be your guides.
