In any relationship situation please understand you cant control everything that people think so all you can do is  keep an eye on what the other person is doing as it will be all you can do . Fun and games this weekend .

Your  priority should be taking care of you in any area that requires attention. and start with what you know is well overdue .On the upside finances are due a boost this month.

You have a very creative side of you and it is about time you explored the possibilities  If you just think about it you will  not see the benefit that can be had from opening up to new directions .Happy Birthday.

You will have to be aware this next week to not speak out of turn to anyone .The consequences are long reaching for you  as the person will be much more likely to turn against you now than before .Good news coming Jupiter is on his way for a visit to you. Woopee.

Yes this is a time for the inner stress to show itself for some of you especially those of you who tend to over worry which is pretty much a waste of time.. If you have any health issue make sure you check this out .

Its time for a change of scenery this can be as simple as a coat of paint on the walls to a trip out of town Either way its best to take some action rather then brood as this is the worst thing to do. Be proactive not reactive.


If you have things you need to be working on in the home area  get moving and you can be finished by next week .If you waste the time you will be too busy with other things and you will have  less time to have fun.

Due to to positive planetary activity affecting the water signs coming up soon you will be   in good or better spirits than recently. If you have felt a bit lost or blue look inside for the answer to what made you feel not good, any way it’s all temporary so cheer up

If you want to change anything waiting around for others to make the first move is not a good idea. Your lucky ruler Jupiter is leaving your opposite sign and has been giving you the fortitude to hang on until decisions are made for the good.

.You are the most responsible sign of the Universe usually how ever even you are allowed time out and as Jupiter is moving in next week to your opposite sign Cancer  its time to play a little. just be sure you let those that matter to you that are only taking a well deserved time out.

 You are probably feeling a bit frustrated this week .Well that’s life for you so take a break and do not let your duties frustrate you .If you did not have a purpose in life it would dull for you .A short journey is on the cards .

The planets are really on your side this month however as with all water signs you let your feelings take control sometimes so watch you don’t upset someone who does not “get” you. Jupiter in your cousin sign Cancer next week will be helping life for you soon.

And finally..
The Russell Brand interview everyone has been talking about


  1. I love the Russell Brand video at the end haha nice touch
