Waterford Today weekly horoscopes

Wednesday 18th April - Tuesday 24th April

Aries 21st March-21st April

"Freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose" so sang Janis Joplin et al. You could crave autonomy now, and chances are in most areas of your life you're carving it out. But in a work situation, there's only so much freedom you can have, ultimately you're still working for the man, like the rest of us. So unless you plan on going it alone and being your own boss, you'll need to find some balance, otherwise you could run into trouble.

Taurus 22nd April-21st May

Sudden changes could well be afoot for many Taureans. In one sense, these have been building slowly behind the scenes and were obvious when you think about it. But they will still feel like a bolt out of the blue when they actually happen. You could decide to pull back from something you've be working on, or change lanes so that you can refocus on a more realistic outcome, one that leaves you more time for your life outside of work.

Gemini 22nd May-21st June

Now that Mercury has turned direct, you can get on with what you're good at, and that covers quite a lot! But in this instance we're talking about mixing and mingling and networking with the best. There's a good chance you'll meet someone who gets you fired up about potential projects, you're on the same page in every regard. Conversely you may feel the need to distance yourself from a different colleague who you feel is way off the mark.

Cancer 22nd June-22nd July

You may be feeling under pressure with to do lists and work demands mounting and someone in particular, a senior authority figure maybe, could really be asking a lot of you. Your patience could well be tested by what seems like the downright rudeness of clients or customers. Try as best you can to be assertive but professional, firm but fair. You'll garner much more respect this way than just rolling over for an easy life.

Leo 23rd July-23rd August

If you've managed to start getting your house in order vis-a-vis your health, diet, lifestyle, exercise and all that, you could already be feeling the benefits. The thing now is to stick to it. It's all too easy to get lured off the path by your chosen vices. But with so much coming your way on the work front and in any area where you feel your passions ignited, the advice is stay on the straight and narrow, eat well and get plenty of rest.

Virgo 24th August-23rd September

Time to finish what you've started Virgo. Somewhere around you the energy of something 'unfinished' is lingering in your physical and mental/emotional space. Clutter doesn't have to be something you can see! And it's exactly these kind of ongoing but never-ending scenarios that keep us stuck in a certain place or certain mind-frame. We can never 'graduate' from this experience or learn how to move on if we don't face it and finish it.

Libra 24th September-23rd October

Plans that had been racing along may suddenly begin to stall Libra. Instead of losing your patience, use this time to take stock, and to prepare for things to begin to move again. If possible slip away somewhere quiet for a day or two, if the option of some type of retreat is available this would be perfect timing, and getting some distance from a situation will allow you to see it, and your part in it, much more clearly.

Scorpio 24th October-22nd November

Time to reconnect with your tribe Scorpio. If life has gotten in the way of spending time with your kind of people, you can course- correct now. Don't worry if it's been a very long time, pick up the phone or send that message. It's true what they say, the best of friends may not speak for weeks, months or even years, but when they do, it's like no time has passed at all. This is also a great time to examine power dynamics within partnerships.

Sagittarius 23rd November-21st December

You have a grand gathering of planets in your money and work zones. If you've been concerned about where new opportunities would come from, the opposite could be the case soon, as you try to balance your time and energy to reach on everything. It's a 'make hay while the sun shines' kind of energy. And just as well, unexpected expenses are just around the corner!

Capricorn 22nd December-20th January

Walk away from drama, arguments and disagreements that don't concern you Capricorn. You may be called on to 'pick a side'. The advice is to stay well out of it. Let them find another mediator. You can't win and it's not your fight. Be especially careful about sticking up for someone you don't really know that well, especially if said someone has been depending on your generous nature a lot of late.

Aquarius 21st January-19th February

Watch what you say to your partner or closest friend, especially if your words are heated. (Listen carefully too if these conversations only happen in your head! You know the ones, where you imagine conversations you'd like to have!) There's a good chance you'll hear yourself projecting your own fears or frustrations about your life on to them! These usually take the shape of the "you never ...." comments. So listen carefully, and apply them to yourself.

Pisces 20th February-20th March

If you've decided on a new career course, or even have just decided you'd like a change but are not sure what exactly that is, now is a great time to peruse the jobs pages, update your cv and online profiles, and think about how you'll sell yourself to potential new employers. It's a great time too to sharpen up your routine, making sure that if a new job is offered, you're well rested and keen to start, no matter how early that start is!

The mother and six of her children had to seek accommodation in the Tallaght Garda Station last week as they had absolutely nowhere to turn to. It led to an outcry as pictures of the young children sleeping on seats were posted to social media by the mother.Understandably there were a lot of people who were saddened to see that in this day and age that a family had to resor …
