#Gemini: live in the present, take care of yourself and focus on your goal. It is likely that you will not immediately adapt to your usual working state this week.

#Libra: if you decide to share your dreams, they will most likely come true. Spend this week with your good friends and close ones. There is a lot of work ahead of you this week, so it will be hard for you to set priorities. Take a step back, assess information and choose the right path!

#Scorpio: details are insignificant, so don’t dwell on them too much. Concentrate on your goal and leave your mind open. You will feel as though everyone around you wants to make things more difficult for you. Be mindful of what you say.

#Sagittarius: you may feel baseless concerns about something this week. You should instead move forward, even if the week does not progress the way you planned it. There is a high probability that people around you may seem slightly mad and unpredictable, so you shouldn’t make your plans complicated. Do things as simply as possible.

#Capricorn: spend more time home this week; preferably in a relaxed and calm state. If you read between the lines, you will find out what is really happening around you. You may end up in a struggle for a favourable place, so you should not give up!

#Aquarius: you will have to use your head this week: is your chosen path really correct for you? If you set it aside, you may find better opportunities. This week may turn out rather crazy for you, because changes will come on a daily basis. Move forward and do what you do best! Patience should be your word of the week!

#Pisces: you feel as though others underestimate you from time to time. This feeling may turn out rather strong this week. However, it is time to forget about what others think. Focus instead on the things you need. If you manage to muster more confidence, you will be able to do anything.
