Waterford Today weekly horoscopes

Wednesday 21st February - Tuesday 28th February

Aries 21st March-21st April

You may feel the need to ‘go dark’ for a week or so Aries, that is to say, cut off all contact with the digital and virtual world. It’s like a decluttering of the mind in a way. We’re bombarded with so much information about other people’s lives that we become distracted from our own, and in particular from our inner wisdom and intuition. It’s also a great time to take a holiday, even on your own! There’s a whole ‘travel solo’ world out there!

Taurus 22nd April-21st May

Things in your relationships could come to a head now Taurus, as Mars squares up to Venus. You might find it difficult to control your emotions (or your passion) and could feel quite untethered. Take some deep breaths and ask yourself what it is you really want from your partner. Then, without stating what they’re not giving or not doing, ask for what you need using clear, simple and loving language.

Gemini 22nd May-21st June

In your search for world domination (well, your world anyway) don’t overlook potential partners and opportunities that are right under your nose. A recently unemployed friend or colleague, may have just the right skill-set and time on their hands to be an invaluable asset to you in your endeavours. Or a retired parent or older person may have some valuable insight or advice that might make a big difference to your approach.

Cancer 22nd June-22nd July

You could find yourself in an optimistic frame of mind Cancer and an opportunity you never saw coming lands square in your lap. And with the law of attraction working as it does, your positive frame of mind keeps attracting more of the good stuff. A last minute deal or bargain could see you walking on sunshine, or at the very least, travelling to a beautiful sun-drenched location at the drop of a (sun) hat!

Leo 23rd July-23rd August

Your finances could be under the microscope this week Leo - how you earn your money, how you spend your money and how you can adjust both to suit a new situation. It can be quite stressful. There’s a sense of everything being up in the air and you could be waiting on a vital piece of information to know what to do next. Don’t make any big decisions until you have all the relevant details. Things will become clearer as March begins.

Virgo 24th August-23rd September

There’s a chance you’ll find yourself saying yes to something and instantly regretting it. Whether it’s that someone close to you lays on the guilt a bit thick, or someone with some excellent sales patter talks you into a purchase you don’t really need, be aware when you’re being played for a fool. Regardless of what is put before you, let your answer be "I’ll think about that and come back to you" rather than saying yes or no.

Libra 24th September-23rd October

The watchword for you this week Libra is ‘nourish’. Find things that nourish your body, mind and soul, and give yourself full permission to wallow in them. Whether that’s long walks on the beach, hot baths with a great book, a full-on session at the gym, a relaxing massage or yoga retreat, whatever stops your mind from racing, eases your tensions and soothes your soul, do that.

Scorpio 24th October-22nd November

Valentine’s may be passed but the advice for you this week Scorpio is to follow your heart. If you know you’re yearning for something in particular, and you have the wherewithal to make it happen, then do everything in your power to make it so. We only get one short spin in this merry-go-round, don’t leave it until it’s too late to live the life you truly want to live.

Sagittarius 23rd November-21st December

There is something you want to get completed, off your desk and out of your head space. That’s all well and good but make sure that you’ve dotted all the i’s and crossed all the t’s or it could rear it’s ugly head further down the line. If you feel something is stringing you alone, or leaving you hanging, waiting for the answer, take their reticence for a ‘no’ and move on.

Capricorn 22nd December-20th January

There’s the sense that someone in your circle will try to push you into something you’re not keen on. They’ll likely use every trick in the book, from flattery and persuasion, to guilt trips and coercion, and you’ll feel obliged to let them have their way, even if it’s not what you want. The advice is to stand firm and tell them to back off. There’s more going on behind the scenes.

Aquarius 21st January-19th February

Beware of loaning money to, or borrowing money from friends. It may be all rosey in the garden now, but if/when it comes to repaying, things may take on a different hue. If it is the case that it’s a necessary evil, then set clear boundaries on when and how repayments are to be made. Many a friendship has foundered on these perilous rocks. Be cautious with money in all areas of your life now, unexpected outlays could be just around the corner.

Pisces 20th February-20th March

As the month draws to a close you could be feeling a bit sensitive Pisces and maybe even a little left out, as if life is passing you by. It could be that everyone else seems to be having a whale of a time while you’re stuck doing the same old same old. If you’re getting your information from social media, stop right there. You’re viewing other people’s lives through a skewed lens. In fact a break from social media can give you a whole new perspective on life - yours and everyone else's.

  • Waiting can be bad for your He...

    When the latest statistic that waiting times for patients had risen to their highest level yet, there can't have been too many people that were surprised.There are now over 700.000 people on waiting lists with over 50.000 of them children. That so many people are waiting for treatment in one of the most developed economies in the world is truly frightening. Of course you can take into account the underfunding of the health sector during the economic downturn but it still wouldn't fully explain why so ma …
