Start the week off smart: With some good advice from good friends. On Monday, you’ll have the clear, charismatic communication skills to chat up anybody — but conversations with friends and those close to you will give you the most insight. You’ll need that guidance going into Tuesday and Wednesday (and even Thursday morning), as you’re faced with unusual obstacles and unclear expectations. From Thursday afternoon through Saturday, everything blocking your way will vanish. You’ll have extraordinary energy and the kind of fun, flirtatious attitude that will liven up any room. This Sunday, don’t be afraid to be selfish. Now is the time to tighten purse strings and reassess budgets.
Career & Finance
An associate has some terrific advice for you on Monday. You’ve been open about your hopes and wishes (personally and professionally) and this person would not lead you astray. Nevertheless, in all areas of work, the week ahead is full of challenges (and even a few direct obstacles). Communicate with people, make sure the bills are paid, listen, focus — all the things you normally do, but make extra sure this week to be your best. Someone’s going to ask you something on Friday and you’ll be bowled over (and inspired) by the intelligence of the question.
Love & Relationships
Someone gives you advice on Monday and you’re not sure if you should take it. Take it. This is a week of honest reflection and self-improvement, and this friend is giving you a head start. Tuesday and Wednesday, the obstacles you face are largely in your own head — the thing that keeps you from being productive is that you simply don’t feel like being productive — but Thursday and Friday, a casual ease takes hold of you and you’re able to get things done and actually enjoy them while still finding ways to flirt with you-know-who. It’s not a richly romantic week, but just wait.
