Uh, try not to leave the house this week

ARIES (March 21 to April 19)It’s easy to feel depressed or fall into worry mode this week. Remember: Worry is like a rocking chair. It gives you something to do, but gets you nowhere. This will pass quickly.

TAURUS (April 20 to May 20)This is a poor week to have important discussions about finances because you will be shot down. Postpone this kind of discussion for another week when you’re in a better frame of mind.

GEMINI (May 21 to June 20)This week, the Sun is in your sign, opposed by Saturn. This is not an ideal week for having discussions with partners and close friends because you feel emotionally isolated.

CANCER (June 21 to July 22)Do not ask bosses, parents or VIPs for permission or approval this week. When at work, just keep your head down and your powder dry.

LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22)Children might become a source of increased responsibility this week. This is not a good week for social events because these events will be restrained and lackluster.

VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22)Relationships with older family members are strained this week. In fact, someone might disapprove of you or criticize you. Don’t take this personally.

LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22)You might feel cut off from others this week. You also might doubt yourself or feel that you are not up to something. (Relax – this is just a temporary dark cloud on your horizon.)

SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)When you consider your financial scene this week, you might be discouraged. Join the club – we number in the millions. This feeling will pass.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21)Relationships with others are strained and discouraging this week. Do not take this personally because many people feel the same way this week. It’s just in the stars.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19)Do not attempt anything flashy at work this week – and definitely do not ask for permission or approval from a boss. His or her answer will be “talk to the hand.”

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18)Romance might be in the toilet this week – it just is what it is. This really is a discouraging week. Don’t take it seriously.

PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20)Relationships with bosses and parents will be strained this week because people’s feelings are at stake. Because their glasses are half-empty, they see only the reasons why things cannot be done.

BORN THIS WEEK You are a gifted, talented communicator. Your friends are important to you. Because this is a year of growth, construction and building, it is a time to organize your daily world in a practical way. Responsibilities will increase, magnifying the effort needed to maintain your life. Reduce your debt and strengthen your financial position because you are building for your future!
