Virgo- Morale and physical energy are good,
however they will be tested by negative energies
entering your space, so, focus on positive energy
and thoughts and nourishing the spirit and
body. Honor is a signpost, use it for guidance.
Libra- A focus on financial responsibilities and/
or obligations and contracts retains attentions,
however, professional growth energy persists for
the long term. Stay prudent, organized and up-
right for best fruits. Personal happiness grows.
Scorpio- Relationships, both personal and
professional, will be tested, and so become top
priorities. Chances high for turbulence leading to
physical distress; an opportunity to lighten dark-
ness, so meditate on Spirit to tap into inner calm,
and above all else be patient and kind.

spirit helps mitigate heavy workloads and/or
pressures in the professional; patience and time
management efforts also pay off. Respond to the
body¡¯s needs. Calm seas catch up to expectations
at home.
Capricorn- Passion and possible stress energies
increase; channeled energy into positive activi-
ties short circuits negative impulses. Like birth-

ties and advancement. The future looks bright.

ous fulfillment in the personal. Difficulties and
obstacles transition into divine manifestations

to recharge body and spirit.
Taurus- Success energy turned to high; rising
ambition in a supportive atmosphere bears much
fruit. Plenty of physical energy for use. An aura of
passion and love dominate in the personal.
