Bray People - - NEW YEAR EXTRA - by Car­los O’Con­nor


Jan­uary 21 - Fe­bru­ary 19

It is to your credit that you wish to help oth­ers, but look for prac­ti­cal ways to get in­volved. There are sur­pris­ing mo­ments at home as some­one else takes the reins. Go­ing in the wrong di­rec­tion? You may need to sever an at­tach­ment. Com­plete suc­cess in an en­deav­our may not be forth­com­ing so you need to be more pa­tient. This week it seems that fate is tak­ing a hand. Ac­cept small suc­cesses and cel­e­brate them, even if there is still a long way to your goal.


May 22 – June 23

The chances are that you have been think­ing of old friends re­cently. Where are they now? Who are they with? To an­swer th­ese ques­tions would take some ef­fort and maybe you are not in the mood. Even so, in a cre­ative pe­riod, do they have some knowl­edge to of­fer you? With­out a doubt it is worth think­ing again about some­one who you have dis­missed. This week it re­ally is a case of ‘you only get out what you put in!’ Some real ef­fort is needed and you may be out of prac­tice.


Septem­ber 24 – Oc­to­ber 23

New and un­usual friends can be very en­ter­tain­ing and sur­pris­ingly at­trac­tive. How­ever, you have big­ger fish to fry in your work and fi­nance area. Those look­ing for lost rel­a­tives or erst­while lovers will be more suc­cess­ful than an­tic­i­pated. Just be care­ful what you wish for! Some­thing that you tried in the past that did not work out could now get a sec­ond chance. If tech­nol­ogy is in­volved dou­ble-check your sources be­fore part­ing with money.


Fe­bru­ary 20 – March 20

Although you want to get into the swing of things this week, al­low a bit of time to de­cide where you are go­ing. You may think that hours spent sit­ting and plan­ning are wasted but please be­lieve me that they are not! They will save you time and money as the month pro­gresses. Con­fu­sion in a per­sonal re­la­tion­ship comes at a bad mo­ment. You do not need any dis­rup­tions right now while con­sid­er­ing your op­tions.


June 24 – July 23

Hon­esty seems to be the best pol­icy this week as you deal with prac­ti­cal mat­ters. Try to sep­a­rate love from money as they will not mix well. Con­cen­trat­ing on work is hard after the hol­i­day but it will be worth­while. Sweeten the pill by or­gan­is­ing a lit­tle trip for a loved one or ones at the week­end. Are you ready to put any bad habits be­hind you? This is the time to get to grips with those te­dious blips that spoil your en­joy­ment.


Oc­to­ber 24 – Novem­ber 22

Fate wants to step in and give you a hand. How­ever, you do not al­ways trust in fate or your instincts. Think again. An eas­ier time at home is cou­pled with a de­mand­ing time at work. Even rel­a­tives may be par­tic­u­larly awk­ward. How you think oth­ers want you to be and how you want to be your­self are at odds. There comes a time when you know what the right thing is to do. De­ci­sions made now could be for the short term any­way, so don’t stress.


March 21 – April 20

With a busy and chal­leng­ing week ahead, hearth and home may have to take a back seat. Keep a loved one happy by ar­rang­ing a day or evening out later in the month. Although work takes a big chunk of your time, the re­wards can mean more fun times. Im­por­tant per­sonal de­ci­sions can per­haps be de­layed un­til you are sure of your feel­ings. It is some­times bet­ter to con­fide in old and trusted friends rather than new and un­tried ones.


July 24 – Au­gust 23

Un­set­tling Aquarius sparks off Venus this week. She is try­ing to keep the peace but life is rarely that sim­ple. Be pre­pared for fire­works in your love life when some­one does not get their way! Lis­ten care­fully to friends who have wise ad­vice. You are able to get what you want but there will be a price to pay. Watch those fi­nances! Long-dis­tance meet­ings may be putting strain on a re­la­tion­ship. Is there room for com­pro­mise or is it too early to say?


Novem­ber 23 - De­cem­ber 21

There is noth­ing quite like a few changes for sharp­en­ing your mind. Never the one for dull and pre­dictable out­comes, you should find this week fas­ci­nat­ing! Aquarius is stir­ring things up and, in the process, giv­ing you some­thing to bite on. Any changes at home, how­ever, need to be han­dled care­fully and with tact. Much as you love the ex­cite­ment at the mo­ment, you may want to take some time out with a loved one at the week­end.


April 21 – May 21

The com­bi­na­tion of Venus and Aquarius can bring some strange char­ac­ters into your life. It is un­likely that you will find them overly at­trac­tive as they rep­re­sent a dif­fer­ent life­style. Even so, be on your guard in un­usual sit­u­a­tions. You can­not help but look be­hind you when faced with a cur­rent one. Have you been here be­fore? Some­thing strikes you as fa­mil­iar. Look way back to find the an­swer. Some­one may need con­vinc­ing that you are head­ing in the right di­rec­tion.


Au­gust 24 – Septem­ber 23

Want­ing to make a new start? De­cided that your im­age needs a shakeup? This is the week to get started! Those who make real changes can ex­pect chal­lenges from fam­ily and friends. Why? Is it be­cause they feel that you will not suc­ceed? As you are in a log­i­cal frame of mind, they could very well be wrong. Even so, any changes should be for you. Aquarius is scram­bling your mind when it comes to love. If you are at­tracted to some­one un­usual, don’t ex­pect it to last.


De­cem­ber 22 – Jan­uary 21

So, you want some love and at­ten­tion? Part­ner busy and has­sled? You may need to pay them at­ten­tion first. There is a feel­ing that you want a re­la­tion­ship to move on. Those who are not yet suited will have some se­ri­ous seek­ing out to do. Only the best is good enough! Feel­ing cross with some­one?

Calm down be­fore you speak. A trip at the week­end puts your mind on things other than ro­mance, which is good if you

have business or fi­nan­cial deals to set­tle.
