Omarr’s Weekly As­tro­log­i­cal Fore­cast

The Gulf News (Port aux Basques) - - FOCUS - HOW NOT TO APOL­O­GIZE By Ti­mothy E. Parker

The com­pet­i­tive spirit is cranked up in the week ahead, but that doesn’t mean you must be cranky. Re­main ob­jec­tive and don’t let your emo­tions rule your head as the week pro­gresses. Fo­cus on us­ing your creative flair.

Put so­cial out­ings and pur­chases on hold the first half of the week. You are al­ways de­lighted to have some­one else along for the ride, but might find that break­ing the ice to make new friends is an up­hill bat­tle.

Pol­ished manners and eti­quette will con­quer a lack of en­thu­si­asm from oth­ers. An air of for­mal­ity may per­me­ate so­cial ac­tiv­i­ties this week, but you will shine in a crowd when you dis­cuss new con­cepts and trendy ideas.

Your heart is big­ger than your wal­let. As this New Moon un­folds a heartrend­ing story may tug on your con­science but it isn’t wise to be too gen­er­ous. Don’t be cor­nered into mak­ing a fi­nan­cial com­mit­ment this week.

The New Moon in your sign may mo­ti­vate you to be­gin some­thing new. You may feel more com­pet­i­tive than usual as this week un­folds. A part­ner may en­cour­age you to lead the way, but oth­ers may re­sent your take charge at­ti­tude.

When you are up­front about wants and needs, you can strike a suit­able com­pro­mise. In the week to come new hori­zons may ap­pear that you can aim for with sim­ple changes in the way you com­mu­ni­cate with oth­ers.

You may have your head in the clouds, day­dream­ing of what could be. To­day’s New Moon could very eas­ily mark the be­gin­ning of a month in which you are more de­ter­mined to achieve your goals. Avoid ex­trav­a­gant spend­ing.

To­day’s New Moon could mark a new start in your pur­suit of ca­reer ob­jec­tives. In the week ahead you may sort through im­pres­sions and in­sights gath­ered from numer­ous per­sonal con­tacts. It is who you know that counts.

You might be caught be­tween a rock and a hard place in the week ahead. Be on your best be­hav­ior and give no one a rea­son to crit­i­cize your work or per­for­mance. You can’t spend money to make more money.

It is best to keep your mouth shut when the fur is fly­ing. Un­set­tling fric­tions could put you on your guard in the week ahead. A whis­per of doubt might make you sus­pect that some­one is not com­pletely on the up and up.

The New Moon in your op­po­site sign might il­lu­mi­nate re­la­tion­ship is­sues. The abil­ity to com­mu­ni­cate clearly is at its best dur­ing the next few days. Present your ideas and clear up on­go­ing is­sues as the week goes by.

It isn’t nec­es­sary to com­pete on the job to com­mand re­spect. In the week to come you may grad­u­ally grow to un­der­stand that the peo­ple you work with or meet in a group set­ting are all squares con­nected in the same quilt.
