Horoscopes

Everybody wants your attention on Monday and Tuesday. There’s no time left for you, but that’s OK. You’re quick, and if you look sharp to important people, you could get that promotion you’re after. Romance beckons on Wednesday and Thursday, but that may be as good as it gets. If making the connection with your sweetheart is difficult, just remember that absence makes the heart grow fonder. Your workload is intense on Friday and Saturday. The good news is that the money could be pouring into your pocket if you’re willing and able to produce the results. It may be Sunday before you have time for that conversation you’ve wanted to have. The good news? It goes very well then.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Do your budget on Monday and Tuesday. Clip coupons and figure out your menus for the week. If you play this game right, you could wind up with a profit. Pay attention to what’s going on at your house Wednesday and Thursday. Your partner could decide to make a few changes. Just make sure he or she doesn’t throw out your favorite sweater. Don’t take a disagreement with your sweetheart too seriously on Friday. If you put in the correction that’s being requested, on Saturday you two will be happier than ever. Go through the Sunday papers, with scissors in hand. You could make even more next week.

Gemini (May 21-June 21)

There’s plenty of money on Monday and Tuesday, but don’t spend it all. Pay yourself first by sending a good-sized chunk to your retirement account. A new idea you’re trying out at work could fall flat on Wednesday and Thursday. Practice before showing off and use a safety net. A perfectionist, possibly somebody who lives with you, wants to tell you what to do on Friday and Saturday. This is going to be good advice, so take notes. Save Sunday for your sweetie. A long walk or a drive in the country and a meaningful conversation sweep the week’s worries right out of your head.

Cancer (June 22-July 22)

You’re liable to win the argument Monday and Tuesday, with help from your friends. Take care of your teammates, not just yourself, and they’ll take care of you. You’d like to do everything for your loved ones on Wednesday and Thursday, but you can’t afford it. They’ll understand, eventually. Study to keep up with the competition on Friday and Saturday, and you could come out the winner again. A peaceful Sunday at home will be much appreciated. Read a good book.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Follow your hunches on Monday and Tuesday to set priorities. You have too much to do, so put first things first. You’re in the spotlight on Wednesday and Thursday. Don’t go too far out on a limb, or you could lose your balance. Friday’s good for getting more money if you also want a new job. Profit through your own efforts on Saturday and learn a new skill on Sunday.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You’re looking good on Monday and Tuesday. If you’re looking for love, a friend might want to upgrade then. The pressure’s intense on Wednesday and Thursday, partially due to breakdowns. If others can’t decide what they want, step in and do it for them. You and your sweetheart may have to take off in two different directions on Friday. That’s OK. Saturday’s better for making plans for the future, anyway. Go through your old coat pockets on Sunday and look under the couch cushions, too. Odds are good you’ll find something of value.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)

Be polite on Monday and Tuesday, even if it’s difficult. A moody older person could turn out to be a good friend, although at first it seems unlikely. Try not to have friends over to your place Thursday or Friday. They’d just complicate matters and interfere with your private time. Finish up old chores on Saturday. That will give you time on Sunday to play with your favorite people. Travel’s OK then, but don’t stay out late. Leave plenty of time for snuggling.

Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 21)

Your intuition’s excellent on Monday and Tuesday. Use it regarding romance and to make your home more comfortable. Consider taking on more responsibility Wednesday and Thursday, but don’t sign anything yet. Find out what the job involves before you say you’ll do it. A visit with friends on Friday could go late, interfering with a private engagement. Better call, or you could get left out in the cold. You and your date have a great time Saturday, visiting friends together. But save time for contemplation and planning on Sunday.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Be practical on Monday and Tuesday. You might not have as much money as you thought, after you finish paying bills. You’re tempted to play hooky on Wednesday and Thursday, but that would be a big mistake. A co-worker would snitch! You want to be guiltless on Friday, anyway, when negotiating for more money. Launch your garage enterprise on Saturday and make a tidy profit. Gather with close friends and neighbors on Sunday. A potluck would be perfect.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Your partner’s in a snit on Monday or Tuesday, but that’s OK. You can work out a compromise and not give up what you want. Financial negotiations are full of surprises on Wednesday and Thursday. Be careful shopping then. All of the surprises are not pleasant. Travel might take you away from a loved one on Friday, but you can make up for it Saturday. Go wherever you’re going together then. Be respectful to an older person on Sunday, and you’ll profit from that interaction, too.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Do the work and make the money on Monday and Tuesday. You may have to figure out which work to do, but that’s OK. You can. Hassles with your partner mar Wednesday and Thursday. You won’t give an inch and neither will he or she, so let that deal ride for a while. Compromising will be easier later. Shop for the good deals on Friday and Saturday, and you’ll find them. This goes for household items and real estate. Travel and romance look lovely for Sunday.

Have them all over on Sunday.
