OVERVIEW: Powerful feelings are internalized, waiting for the right moment to be expressed. This can come across as resistance, so don’t poke the bear.

Be calm and look at the good that can come out of any situations.

Each side should put their cards on the table. Soften dialogue to smooth ruffled feathers. Leave the scene if it will help.

Discuss anything owed and arrange a time line for settlement. Surprise information catches some off guard.

Seek a soul connection. It’s OK to think big as long as it has a realistic base or action plan. Check the investment potential, letting the pieces fall together naturally. Pick locations for home or office. Move on.

ARIES: Travel to talk to others in person if it helps to advance your agenda. They need to be reassured.

TAURUS: Some are caught off guard by your sudden actions as this is not how you usually behave.

GEMINI: Private meetings are needed to make sure everyone is on the same page. Shake on decisions.

CANCER: Seeking to control things causes a standoff with those who feel they have more authority.

LEO: Look at what steps you need to take to advance your position or status. You have requirements.

VIRGO: The unexpected works in your favour so roll with the circumstances as they unfold in stages.

LIBRA: You need to act from a position of strength. Be patient and don’t overplay your hand to win.

SCORPIO: You may be surprised to find out who has your back. Business relationships get personal.

SAGITTARIUS: Extra effort on your part leads to greater gains down the road. Get to the finish line.

CAPRICORN: Show your steady responsible side and this will make other feel more secure with you.

AQUARIUS: Most things you are dealing with should be handled privately now. Pull details together.

PISCES: Old deals or arrangements need review to see where they are still workable on what level.
