Trust your intuition about a money transaction or job related problem. If you’ve gone as far as you can in a particular field, it is time for a change. You are tired of people who put too much emphasis on making money. Take the chance to promote a pet project. Actions will speak louder than words so if you promise someone you will do something for them, let them see you mean it. Volunteer work for a local charity will cultivate happiness.


In business and in your social world, first impressions count for a lot. Splash out on some new outfits that enhance your best features. When you look good, you feel good, too. Your friendly nature is a valuable asset in making new friends. It’s a great week to put those loving feelings you have been bottling up inside into words. Hugs always cheer you up and they’ll have the same effect on others too.


You’re ready now to discard old financial ties and contracts to replace them with more positive arrangements. Money and job themes are favourably accented. Take this chance to sign a contract and things will begin to change for the better. Questions are asked in emails and text messages and you seem to have all the answers. It might seem as if everyone is coming to you for advice and guidance. Later, a friend will be keen to introduce you to a new interest.


Community activities will be lucky for you. Plan to circulate if you are hoping to meet new prospects. If you’re offered a job with a local charity, take it.

It’s not a good idea to plunge ahead with a risky project or relationship. Trust your intuition when it tells you this is not a risk you should take.


You will be especially productive behind the scenes as you are driven to achieve a special goal. Working alone helps you stay focused. You don’t want to be distracted by people who waste your time. A relative is interested in an event that is being set up in your area. You can understand why this appeals to them but you won’t be as keen to get involved. It’s just not your cup of tea.


You work hard for your money and you want to have something to show for it. To shop or not to shop is now the question.
