Weekly Horoscopes for June 11 to 18

Aries

Expect to be on the phone all day long on Monday. And when you're not on the phone, expect to be writing emails. You are the center of all communications at the beginning of the week. You are the hub. Tuesday and Wednesday, that kind of expressive openness is going to be required of you in the family realm, too. Midweek is frankly going to be a drag, but Thursday you'll be able to focus on work again. Friday is going to be a terrific, challenging, electrifying day. As much it'd be good to take the weekend off, you'll probably wake up Sunday morning thinking about... work. What else?

Taurus

Someone might slap a contract down on your desk on Monday and ask you to have a look at it, but you're in no state for fine print. You're having a hard enough time paying attention to the basics at the beginning of the week. You'll be calmer and keener on Tuesday. Someone's going to respond really well to something you say to them on Wednesday, and it will make you realize how much your opinions matter around the office. Don't let a power struggle late in the week strike you as anything other than a minor annoyance. Whatever you do, don't let it ruin your stellar weekend.

Gemini

You're shaking so many hands on Monday your wrists are getting tired. Follow-through is not going to be your strong suit at the beginning of the week, but that's because you're only in the early stages of this project. You're still meeting all the players. Tuesday and Wednesday are great days for drawing up lists and making concrete plans, and Thursday you might need to draw on the advice of a financial expert. The workweek will end on a casual note Friday, but somewhere deep in your head you're going to keep working all weekend.

Cancer

The weirder the idea, the better. It's true at the beginning of the week, and it's true at the end of the week. Things could use some shaking up, and you're just the person for the job. Don't go crazy of course. But apply your creative energy this week toward exploring imaginative solutions to the most persistent business-related problems. Thursday is all about new beginnings -- you might want to unravel your brilliant new plan in a formal setting -- and Friday the spotlight is on you all day long. It will be a great week at work, and it will give way to a great weekend.

Leo

There's nothing like a group brainstorming session to get the blood going. Some of your coworkers are amazingly funny, and fun to work with, and it's fun to imagine the future together. Tuesday and Wednesday, put what you've come up with into direct action. Thursday you're going to look around the office and realize how lucky you are to have the job that you have. You might even do something crazy and delightful, like return from an afternoon break with snacks for everyone. You are the star in the office at the end of the week. You'll be glowing all weekend.

Virgo

Work needs your undivided attention on Monday. The weekend was fun but it's time to get down to business. You have a logical mind, and your quick reasoning is going to come in handy during an early-week decision-making meeting. Tuesday through Thursday you're going to be consumed with a fairly major organizational project. If all the variables suddenly change on Friday, well, you're just going to have to be flexible. That's how these things sometimes go. Your ability to rapidly adapt to things is an impressive quality. People are taking notice.

Libra

At last, you have enough energy to match the challenge of the Monday workday. You can basically do anything today. You're in touch with what's going on in your psyche and you're two steps ahead of everyone else in the office. Tuesday or Wednesday something threatens to interrupt your routine, but keep your head down (and your attention on the ultimate goal) and you should be able to still get things done. At the end of the week, take a break from all that pressure and spend time with friends who make you laugh so hard you forget everything else.


Scorpio

Monday is your typical workday -- long, busy and taxing -- but do your best and stay on your game. By Tuesday or Wednesday, your recent labors over a business deal are suddenly going to start paying off. Not only will you be getting all the things you asked for, you'll be getting things you never even thought to ask for -- little bonuses here and there, scattered throughout the week, like presents. No matter how insanely successful you are this week, Friday won't be the day to ask for a raise. Your weekend (especially Sunday) will be fantastic.

Sagittarius

There are a lot of ideas bouncing around on Monday, but that's all they are: ideas. No one seems too jazzed about, you know, acting on them. It might be a wise move to take it upon yourself to motivate the troops. You can be incredibly persuasive. And your idealistic spirit on Tuesday and Wednesday will come off as inspiring. As your reputation around the office grows, so does your confidence. This -- plus, on Friday, a stroke of good fortune is coming your way. The weekend has you feeling expansive and yearning to travel.

Capricorn

Your current work project is attracting the flightiest people! On Monday it might be time to put your foot down and demand attentive participation from all involved parties. (It's not bad to let everyone know you take your job seriously.) You'll be dealing with everyone in this confident, no-nonsense way all week. And, in turn, expect them to deal with you the same way. On Thursday, if you have the impulse to take something personally, snap out of it. Business is business. And on Friday, business is tiring. You deserve a mind-clearing weekend.

Aquarius

You've been trying to find ways to communicate better at work, and you're going to think of just the thing on Monday. Whether it's a memo on the bulletin board or a string of silly emails or a Post-It mural, everyone will appreciate your effort to energize office camaraderie. Toward the middle of the week, something in your personal life is going to take up a lot of your attention, but by the end of the week you'll be back to your creative, inspiring self at work. People love your ideas. And your bosses love how you manage a crowd.

Pisces

Monday's not a great day to overexert yourself. As much as you'd like to see everyone in your appointment book, what you're really going to feel like doing is crawling under your desk and taking a nap. Or flipping through a magazine. Doing anything other than working, actually. Tuesday and Wednesday you've got nothing but romance on the brain, and Thursday you have an insanely catchy pop song stuck in your head. Strangely enough you're not going to feel like doing any work this week until Friday, which is probably when you'll get almost everything done. Your weekend, too, will be productive.
