Omarr’s Weekly Astrological Forecast
ARIES (March 21-April 19): Someone might appreciate your romantic side in the week ahead. A romantic partner may command your attention and spark your creativity. A friend or social group, however, could distract you from duties.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Good intentions and helpfulness might not be enough, as accuracy and precision are needed to keep all the wheels turning smoothly. Initiate important financial and business projects in the second half of the week.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Work out details that are sticky by being analytical rather than picky. In the week ahead you might find that someone close vacillates between being generous and economical. You should learn to roll with the punches.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): You never appreciate the highs until you get low. It is possible that you see only what you want to see and become disillusioned in the week ahead. Use that energy constructively to put misconceptions to rest.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): A brief period of misunderstanding could put you at odds with someone important in the week to come. Romantic yearnings could cause you to ignore wisdom and act against your better judgment, so be discreet.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You understand the value of being practical as well as imaginative. Whatever challenges you encounter in the week ahead can be put into better perspective by getting more information and being more understanding.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Group events and activities might have a pointed agenda. In the week ahead it might be in your best interest to find ways to have a good time with friends. You can plan a shopping spree or a night out with buddies.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You may receive pleasant reminders that you are loved and valued as this week unfolds. Focus on making a partnership stronger and enjoy supportive relationships. Your smallest efforts may add up to large achievements.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): All things come to those who wait. This week you can adjust your viewpoint if you focus on being patient. Rather than rehashing the past you can dream about ways you can achieve a better future.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Whatever you can imagine can become reality. You may be inspired to do something important in the week ahead. You can count on having the stamina to follow through on a project close to your heart.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Frivolous fantasies could develop in the week ahead. You may have your heart riveted on the wrong person or thing. Your more serious friends could keep you on the right path and misplaced enthusiasms in check.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You are able to form a sharp image of a fuzzy concept. Since you have the ability to put your ideas into action your week ahead can be highly productive. Use your creativity and imagination in constructive ways.
