Wicklow People (West Edition) - - MIND GAMES - by Car­los O’Connor

Leo July 23 – Au­gust 23 In an en­er­getic and imag­i­na­tive frame of mind? Be­ing frus­trated by those who just fail to pull their weight? Avoid foot-stamp­ing but do put both feet firmly down! Let those around you know ex­actly what is ex­pected of them and keep on their tail. Have you de­cided to put a ro­man­tic at­tach­ment on hold? Well, to avoid con­flict do let them know what is go­ing on in your mind. Your Luck: Some­one who ad­mires you will not wait around for­ever. It is a real case of use it or lose it! Sagit­tar­ius November 23 – De­cem­ber 21 Such an emo­tional week is sure to leave you feel­ing a bit con­fused at times. Take some quiet mo­ments and just have that cup of tea or read that silly mag­a­zine! What­ever switches your in­tel­lect off for a while will cer­tainly help. I of­ten ad­vise talk­ing it over but this time just get­ting on with things works bet­ter than sit­ting around. Avoid spend­ing money or com­fort eat­ing. Your Luck: Ac­tions truly do speak louder than words this week. You are the cat­a­lyst of change. Aries March 21 – April 20 In what could be a busy, if not fran­tic week, be pre­pared! Make sure that ev­ery­one does their bit and pull in any favours. Look for en­ergy and tal­ent in oth­ers and har­ness it. Be­ing in charge comes nat­u­rally to you, es­pe­cially when something is im­por­tant. Something ro­man­tic stops you in your tracks at the week­end but even this en­counter can be use­ful! Your Luck: Some­one close gets even more so when pro­vid­ing help at the week­end. This is real back-up! Virgo Au­gust 24 – Septem­ber 23 This week is all about build­ing your con­fi­dence and knowl­edge. The New Moon shines a light on am­bi­tions and dreams, which mix to­gether in your mind. Of­ten you will wake with a bright idea buzzing to get out. Write down the pos­si­bil­i­ties be­fore you for­get them. Test the prac­ti­cal­ity of those ideas. Do you need some­one to share and help to build those ideas up? Your Luck: Seek out the right one who can cheer­fully and en­thu­si­as­ti­cally help you to forge ahead. Capri­corn De­cem­ber 22 – Jan­uary 20 Emo­tional block­age is a bad thing. We all hold on to thoughts and feel­ings that could up­set oth­ers. This does not help and, as you are find­ing now, those emo­tions will come tum­bling out. Some­times they may even ex­plode out! See it as a good thing and try not to hold back any longer. It is clear-out time, baby! You will feel a great sense of re­lief af­ter­wards. Why did you not do it sooner? Your Luck: Feel­ing a bit shell-shocked at the week­end? Things calm down next week. Tau­rus April 21 – May 21 A big chance to learn something fas­ci­nat­ing this week is tied up with travel. This could be a hid­den gem found on hol­i­day or a book dis­cov­ered in an an­tique shop. With your cu­ri­ous mind and ac­tive imag­i­na­tion it seems a mag­i­cal time. Are you notic­ing things about a part­ner that you didn’t be­fore? Is it time to bring your­self up to date on their thoughts and feel­ings? Your Luck: Be­ing in a spir­i­tual mood, you can un­der­stand oth­ers on a much deeper level. Li­bra Septem­ber 24 – Oc­to­ber 23 You re­ally do need to start a new chap­ter in your life right about now! It could be in­ter­nal changes at home or asking for changes at work. What­ever it is has been a bug­bear for some time. Will you ever get it sorted? Yes, you will! It takes courage to ad­mit what it is that needs chang­ing. It brings you out of your lovely, huggy com­fort zone. Be brave and see that re­ward at the end of the rain­bow! Your Luck: It is now or never for a big and ex­cit­ing idea. Why would you wait now? Aquar­ius Jan­uary 21 – Fe­bru­ary 19 Un­ex­pected and un­set­tling ‘gut re­ac­tions’ pop up all over the place this week. Some re­ac­tions come as a shock to those who think they know you (but how many peo­ple re­ally do?). Still, bet­ter out than in! Some­one is long over­due to be told that they are not pulling their weight, es­pe­cially re­cently. This causes amuse­ment to a loved one who saw it com­ing! Your Luck: Try­ing to see the funny side is not al­ways easy but you cer­tainly will once the week­end comes. Gem­ini May 22 – June 21 Fancy do­ing something creative but not alone? Start look­ing for op­tions. If classes seem costly, why not start a group your­self? The New Moon gives a new start but it will take ex­tra ef­fort to get things mov­ing. Oth­ers ap­pear to be un­help­ful but they have their own worries. All the more rea­son to get them out and think­ing of something different! Your Luck: Get­ting to­gether with oth­ers re­ally lifts your spir­its this week so why not make it a reg­u­lar thing? Scor­pio Oc­to­ber 24 – November 22 With so much en­thu­si­asm on your part it is hard to be­lieve that ev­ery­one else re­fuses to be swept along. Much as you don’t want to waste time, try to ex­plain your mo­tives and plans. You need the help of oth­ers to move ahead even if it is just by them mov­ing out of the way! With a New Moon and a So­lar Eclipse you are no longer able to slow down your am­bi­tions. Your Luck: Emo­tions ex­plode. Gripes come out. Pas­sions show. Does this make you more at­trac­tive? Seems so! Pisces Fe­bru­ary 20 – March 20 It may be prac­ti­cal to back off when some­one asks too much of you. Why run your­self ragged when oth­ers could step up and help? On the work front you have mixed feel­ings about a change in routine or method. Let your ideas be known to the right per­son rather than give an opin­ion via gos­sip. Re­alise that your in­put is im­por­tant. Your part­ner can vouch for that! Your Luck: There is more sup­port around for you than you re­alise. Stand up for what you be­lieve in. Cancer June 22 – July 22 Want to start something new and ex­cit­ing? With your con­fi­dence up and down as this month be­gins you could be feel­ing slug­gish. Where to start? Look for some­one who is full of en­ergy and optimism. Their com­pany could be just what you need for a hefty kick-start! Don’t rely on oth­ers to vol­un­teer to help out with tasks, es­pe­cially at home. You will need to tell them ex­actly what you ex­pect. Your Luck: It may seem eas­ier and less has­sle to do ev­ery­thing your­self but this does noth­ing to get oth­ers into bet­ter habits.
