ARIES You have lots of stories to tell! Either your vacation or family events will be the source of a great deal of talk. You might conclude some profitable transactions at work. TAURUS A foodie by nature, you really feel like treating yourself. You might be offered an unexpected promotion at work. Stress and fatigue seem omnipresent, so get lots of sleep and exercise. GEMINI You can expect lots of action this week, and you end up in the spotlight in a fairly significant way. A few people may even con- gratulate you for one reason or another. CANCER If you still haven’t found the right ca- reer path, you might finally have a flash of inspiration that guides you in the right direction. LEO Just as the post-holidays rush finally set- tles, you find your social life getting busy once again. This busyness seems to hap- pen on its own but, really, you might be subconsciously choosing it. VIRGO Some changes at work require a lot of reorganization, which only you can do. Even at home, you coordinate a big clean- up with the family. LIBRA Looking at some special deals on vaca- tions might inspire you to book your seat on the next flight out. You feel in urgent need of a vacation, and it won’t take much to persuade you to go. SCORPIO You realize that your health is of utmost importance. Your doctor may finally deter- mine the cause of your malaise and suggest a treatment to get you back on your feet. SAGITARIUS You play the role of negotiator or media- tor, at work or elsewhere. It seems that you have the solution for every obstacle in a conflict between third parties or with a client. CAPRICORN There is lots of work on the horizon. Not only do you feel overloaded with work at the office but you redouble your house- keeping efforts at home. Be sure to take some time to rest and relax. AQUARIUS You receive congratulations for one rea- son or another. A few people might even put you on a pedestal. This situation ma- kes you feel very proud of yourself. PISCES You may very well host a family event on the spur of the moment. Your legendary generosity could exceed your budget, which is already stretched, so spend your money carefully.
