Week of August 23, 2006
ARIES (Mar. 20 - Apr. 20) Easy does it is this week's mantra. Best to take your time and move in baby steps rather than rush something and end up with a big pile of nothing because you got impatient. So, take your time and allow clarity to bubble to the surface and use your intuition — gently. Gentle is the best way to describe your best approach to things right now.
TAURUS (Apr. 20 - May 21) There are competing energies this week for you Taurus. On the one hand there is the desire to expand and grow and on the other the desire to keep things the same and not take any chances. Since you don't like change anyway this may not seem like such a big conflict — yet there is a desire for more and there are some things that do need to change. So take the plunge when you have the chance and shake yourself free from anything limiting.
GEMINI (May 21 - June 22) Believe nothing! There is a bit of a breakdown between what others are saying and what you may be hearing and vice versa, so pay real close attention to what is going on. Ask others for their input in a situation before you react and find that you didn't have all the facts in the first place. You may want to choose your words carefully because of this same phenomenon.
CANCER (June 22 - July 23) Sticking close to home isn't a bad idea, especially if you are looking for a break from any kind of stress. If you can't hang out at home, see if you can bring something of home with you wherever you go. Not an actual 'blanky,' but something along those lines. It's just a good idea to have something that reminds you that you are safe, for a reminder of your safety is all you will need to feel cozy no matter where you are.
LEO (July 23 - Aug. 23) It's crunch time. Decide who you will be, get real with what is going on and figure out how to stand in your truth and strength. You are stronger than you give yourself credit for and you sell yourself short when it comes to believing you can stand up and have the life you want. It's time to come into your own and be the person you want to be and know you are.
VIRGO (Aug. 23 - Sept. 23) This is a week for some talking, or some kind of communicating. It may be easier to get your point across with pictures if you find words too limiting, so give that a try. Things may take a bit of effort on your part this week, but it will be worth all you put in. Listen carefully to what is being said, the subtext is all important.
LIBRA (Sept. 23 - Oct. 23) Time with friends may be just what you need. There is some wisdom to be had, like the missing piece of information regarding a project or an idea. Seek out those of like mind to brainstorm with. Great time to be making money, or at least taking steps to expand your income in some way. Believe you can have more and be willing to receive more.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23 - Nov. 22) Okay, Scorpio, this is your week to accomplish much. Goals that have been out of reach are available to capture, so put yourself in a position to do so. Some adjustments may happen along the way and you may have to pace yourself, just remember that your goals are within reach. Avoid impatience, take your time and you will accomplish much.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21) The weird and the wacky are the people you may need to seek out this week — they may hold a key for you. Open yourself to getting outside of your boxes and experiencing even more of life. Try new and unusual things, even if those around you think you're crazy. It's okay to be a little crazy once in a while. You can trust yourself to come back to center by the end of the week.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 21 - Jan. 20) You can't be everywhere at once and you certainly cannot be all things to all people, so this week pick and choose where you will use your energy and who you will share yourself with. Others may be wanting too much from you and it will be up to you to say 'no' when you need to. Don't be afraid of 'no,' others will adjust.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 - Feb. 19) This is a time of things opening up, even if you are feeling a little thwarted in matters of the heart. Love is a little outside your scope right now, or it may be you are just having a little trouble being understood by those closest to you. This will pass so hang in there. Other areas of your life are better served by you giving them your full attention. Reach toward those things that are expanding and come back to those things that aren't at a later date.
PISCES (Feb. 19 - Mar. 20) Outside forces may seem a little overwhelming and you may need to take a break from those that are a bit too stressful for you to deal with right now. There is just a lot of energy around for you right now and some of it is difficult and you will need to move through it at a pace that works for you. So take breaks as you need to and look for help from those who you know you can lean on. Relationships matter and now is the time to find out who your friends really are.
NOTE: If you were born at the end or beginning of a sign, read the sign before and after your birthday.
