www.times.co.nz Botany and Ormiston Times, Thursday, May 21, 2015 — 25 120625-v3 TAURUS A direct approach brings results in mending relationships. A short term goal is within reach, but cooperation is all important. Don’t buy bargains without checking the quality and guarantee. GEMINI Do not impose your taste on others, especially if travelling this week. A communication breakthrough gets projects rolling by Thursday. Brighter financial news arrives by the weekend. CANCER Educational activities are spotlighted, but moderation should be your keyword. A reluctant friend becomes more interested in your ideas but don’t expect an endorsement just yet. LEO Business negotiations and legal affairs are positive through the week. Challenge accusations before they begin to circulate. Romance accents the lighter side of love. VIRGO Offers issued now will be taken to heart. Don’t promise more than you really want to. Watch the tendency to tackle minor chores before facing the important tasks. LIBRA Programmes – work, recreational, cultural, can be more strenuous and more costly than expected. A loved one is in a playful mood, and serious decisions should not be postponed. SCORPIO The week favours tying up those loose ends and not launching grandiose schemes. A new business acquaintance may be less trustworthy than you imagine. The weekend may find you lucky in love. SAGITTARIUS A small financial bonus perks up the week, but your workload remains heavy. Older and younger relatives benefit from your special brand of encouragement – don’t wait to be asked. CAPRICORN Play by the rules in dealing with personnel. In money matters, be fanatical about bookkeeping and budgeting. Your thoroughness here should pay off. AQUARIUS With determination, you raise your standards a couple of notches. Travel and education blend nicely this week. Expect a romantic understanding on the weekend. PISCES Healthy competition makes the week a success. Your partner’s ego can use a boost. Possible friction with neighbours is offset by professional reconciliation. Your salesmanship shines. ARIES Favourable this week are new business ventures and opportunities for part-time employment. Matchmaking and other romance-related projects may backfire. Your partner tends toward exaggeration.
