For week of June 17

ARIES: Mar 21/Apr 20

Expect to expend a little energy this week to get the job done right, Aries. Leaving it up to others is not the best way to go in this instance. Step up.

TAURUS: Apr 21/May 21

Taurus, focus on the big picture or nothing will get accomplished. It’s too easy to get lost in all of the little details. Follow through on the task at hand.

GEMINI: May 22/Jun 21

Gemini, someone will catch your ear and it will only serve to confuse you. You won’t know what to make of it but don’t get worried. It will all begin to make sense once a few pieces fall into place.

CANCER: Jun 22/Jul 22

Lots of people need your help, Cancer. Focus all of your energy on helping others for the time being. You will feel good about your efforts and the good karma that results from them.

LEO: Jul 23/Aug 23

Leo, you need to figure out how to turn all of your great ideas into workable projects — especially ones that can make you some money. Get started on a plan.

VIRGO: Aug 24/Sept 22

Change will be all around you, Virgo. While you’re not overly excited about it, you realize change is essential to growing in your life and career. New work arrangements need to be made.

LIBRA: Sept 23/Oct 23

Don’t expect this week to go smoothly, Libra. But that doesn’t necessarily mean it will go badly. It’s just full of distractions and interruptions.

SCORPIO: Oct 24/Nov 22

Scorpio, you may be feeling sensual and romantic for the next few days. It could be because of all of the positive attention you have been receiving lately.

SAGITTARIUS: Nov 23/Dec 21

You may feel happy when a friend or family member comes over to visit today, Sagittarius. You have been waiting for some company for quite a while. Enjoy the visit.

CAPRICORN: Dec 22/Jan 20

Capricorn, your mind will be all over the place this week unless you find someone to help you get focused. Think of it as having a babysitter who can call you out if you start to stray.

AQUARIUS: Jan 21/Feb 18

Aquarius, you will be amazed at the results when you finally set your mind to something. Stick with what you’re doing and enjoy the ride.

PISCES: Feb 19/Mar 20

Pisces, help around the house or at the office this week and the work will benefit you and all of the other people with whom you interact.
