You are likely to feel very tired and worn out this week. You have likely been pushing yourself too far leading up to this time. You may need to pay more attention to financial matters from the end of the week. Ensure that you are being paid correctly, that you are not double-charged in stores, and that you receive the correct change if using cash. Keep your receipts as you may need to return faulty items. 


You are likely to be feeling quite idealistic this week. You may want to consider joining a group that matches up to a cause important to you. You may need to pay more attention to your health and vitality, appearance, or how others view you from late in the week. Purchasing clothes or undergoing a major revamp of your look is not advised. It is an excellent time to research those matters, though. 


You may be pushing yourself too much in the workplace at this time. You likely feel compelled to do something for “the better good” but need to look after yourself as well. From the end of the week, you may find that hidden or secret matters pop up at this time. This could involve self-defeating habits or addictions or be related to hospitals, prisons, or places of rest or retreat. 


You may find yourself drawn to matters to do with religion, the law, higher education, or other countries or cultures. You may be hearing from long-lost friends from the end of the week. For some, you may be returning to groups that you were once a part of, or you may find that you are running into people you know from groups that you were a member of at one time.


Matters to do with joint finances, inheritances, loans, debts, or taxation matters may be front and center this week. This may wear on you and leave you feeling depleted. From the end of the week, you may hear or see more from people you once worked with, such as bosses or colleagues. 


You may be feeling very idealistic about your closest one-on-one relationships at this time. As much as you enjoy this, you may find that doing so has you feeling rather worn out and depleted. From the end of the week, you may hear from people you know from overseas or from other cultures. If you are dealing with a legal matter at this time, there may be delays or mix-ups to contend with. 


You may feel rather run down this week. A lot is going on in your day-to-day routines, and you may feel rather frazzled. It is also possible that you are involved in a charitable matter or are being of service to others. However, there is still likely to be tiredness there that needs attention. Issues with loans, financial agreements, inheritances, or taxes may require special attention. There may be delays, mix-ups, or miscommunications regarding these matters. 


You may be feeling very creative this week. You may even feel compelled to push yourself to your limits to take advantage of this energy. You may find yourself running into or hearing from ex-partners or romantic interests from the end of the week. While a reunion may be tempting, you would likely be wise to wait until early June to decide if there really is a compelling reason to reunite. 


Dealing with family matters, mainly to do with your parents, may have you feeling tired and depleted this week. It could also be matters concerning your home, living situation, or real estate that have you feeling inspired but exhausted. From late in the week, you may hear from people that used to work with or for you. There is a possibility of matters relating to your health or a pet being subject to delays, mix-ups, or miscommunications. 


Matters to do with siblings, communications, and your local neighborhood may have you feeling tired and worn out this week. You may find that you are returning to a previous creative project late in the week. This is a great time to go back and edit something that you have been working on. Matters concerning your children, hobbies, creativity, or socializing may be prone to mix-ups, delays or misunderstandings. 


Matters concerning your income, possessions, and finances may have you feeling idealistic but also worn out and tired this week. From the end of the week, you may find that you hear more from family members that you may not have seen for a long time. Matters concerning real estate, your home, or your living situation may be prone to delays, mix-ups or miscommunications. 


Your energy levels are likely to be quite low this week. That will not stop you from wanting to get out and help others where you can, though. From the end of the week, matters concerning your siblings, communications, transportation, or your local area are prone to delays, mix-ups, and misunderstandings.
