Aquarius Horoscope
For The Week Starting June 25, 2012

You may hear that someone is expanding their business now. It may be a good idea to drop off a resume and ask for an interview. You may have a talent that they require. If you do this by mid week the position could be yours. You are more focused now and feeling much steadier so an interview could go extremely well for you. At any rate, you should hear within a week whether or not you are hired.

Is it just me, or are all our horoscopes eerily spot on these days?  I am winding down my job at LLS this week.  And am focusing on something new for myself in Tennessee.  I guess I need to buckle down and get it done.

How does your week look?

Today's Horoscope for Aquarius

Contemplation is the word for today. At some point, you might receive a call from a friend wanting advice on a serious decision. Don't be surprised if you spend more time listening than advising, Aquarius. Goals of your own might need some thought and possibly reevaluation, as changes in your immediate environment could present new and exciting possibilities to you. Think about it.
