Most of us have never experienced a pandemic, never been quarantined for any length of time, much less for an indefinite time.  Just when we need one another most, we are told to keep our distance.  That does not mean we stop caring about one another.  Call your neighbors, especially older people and those with conditions that make them vulnerable to COVID-19.  If you are well enough to go to the grocery store or pharmacy, find out what they need and bring it to them.  Ordering from Amazon?  See if those around you need anything.  Together, your total could save you a $35 surcharge!

Take care of yourself.  Wash your hands often -- regular soap is more effective than hand sanitizer.  Touch your face as little as possible -- it's hard!  Limit direct contact with others, and stay out of crowds.  Remember, we need you here!

People seem to come out of the woodwork to seek your help and understanding. You are seen as the ďGood SamaritanĒ.  Interaction with people whom youíve possibly avoided recently should resume or be re-established if it has been lost. Your unselfish effort is needed from the beginning of this seven day period. Get in touch with your extended family, especially the elderly.  A phone call may be sufficient if you canít find the time to visit to let them know you are thinking about them. A card or an email will suffice if you canít contact them in person. The 13th is a day to get busy and get some work in progress. You are setting the stage for something a little out of character for you these days.  Keep your eyes, ears and mind open. You can find enjoyment in little things and that can add a bit of little zest to your existence. This week started out with unusually big expectations of you and will end much the same way. You still have the responsibilities but the difference is that you should be helping yourself to get back on an even keel. You will still be the one to make concessions if you get caught up in an argument but it will be worth it to keep things peaceful. 

It is difficult to get excited about some of the duties we are bound to do.  Letís face it; there is nothing fun about scrubbing floors or cleaning bathrooms. We have to face the fact that there are some domestic chores that are not at all fun.  The only way I have found to get these things done is to do them first thing in the morning before you have time to build up your anxiety.  Thinking about what you donít want to do all day long only will only add to the buildup of dread.  Another thing that can get me to do these unglamorous jobs is to invite someone over for dinner. I can procrastinate for days if I am the only one who knows my dirty secret. I will not let these things slide if someone else is around. On the 10th a good imagination and a fair amount of patience is needed in yet another task that you have become bored with.  Remember that ďhaste makes wasteĒ in some of your career assignments. You must go through all the necessary steps to get any the job done completely and correctly once and for all.  Even though a project drags on longer than you would like, it is important to pay attention to the details in order to avoid big problems in the future.  You will have to listen to the wants and needs of the around you the first half of the week.  Again on the 13th, attention to detail is mandatory in all that you do. Even if you have experience in doing a certain job, something is always different than it was in the past and could require an alternate mode of action. Mundane duties will not necessarily come easily to you, but if you use tunnel vision to focus on each one to the end, youíll be fine.  Find some time to connect to your core on the 15th.  Quiet time is a necessity for you in times when life demands so much cooperation and tolerance.

Pay close attention to the fine print and read instructions carefully before you make a judgment that will affect the future.  Do not make assumptions when you find yourself in the middle of a disagreement. Get the whole story and ask questions and question answers. Your thoughts will be a bit scattered during this time period making it mandatory to think things through.  It is absolutely necessary to know what you are talking about before you offer an opinion, so think before you speak. A little extra caution on your part will help to insure better relationships. An adjustment of some kind may be required of you on the 12th. A change in a domestic partnership is due for some of you.  Someone or something will either enter or exit your life, but will be replaced by a situation that is different.  This could be a few years overdue but it is a change for the better.  So try not to worry needlessly about it. There may be a few obstacles to overcome on the 15th. This will be simple for you if you use your logic and not your tendency toward obstinacy. Finish projects that are long overdue so that you are ready when the next opportunity arrives.

There is work to do on the 9th and it may require more physical effort than you expect. Get to the task early and try not to stop until you are finished.  A friend or loved one could burst your bubble on the 10th with a comment or action that is disappointing to you. Donít jump to conclusions, for this is likely only a misunderstanding. There will almost certainly be a surprise in store for you on the 11th.  Well, maybe not so much a surprise as it is the feelings that come along with it.  This will result in a change in your routine, bringing a welcome variation into your life. The adjustment period may be a little less than comfortable if you resist, but by the end of the week you see that most of these things occur for a good reason. Relax and let things happen as they may and all will be well. Your priorities are not the same as they were this time last year, or probably this time last week. Say what you have to say with as much common sense as you can muster. Tell the truth and know that you have done every logical thing that you have done to set things straight. Justice in all situations may not be instant, but if you do what you know is right, you will eventually end up where you need to be.

Today is a day to reflect on the freedom you experience in everyday life and to be thankful for it. Confinement is torture for you and some of you know this well due to the situation you were placed in last week.  Remember things do not always turn out the way you anticipate, and this is certainly the case on the 10th. Use your ingenuity and you can have better than expected results. Tie up the loose ends in the domestic projects you have laying around. This will be good for you in that it will make you feel good about yourself. Itís not that you are lazy, but there seem to be mental blocks when it comes to certain things. Obstacles and delays have visited you far too often for the last few months.  A smoother path is ahead and you will have the opportunity and perhaps even the desire to be civil to someone close to you.

The week begins with high expectations from you. Service to others beckons you and you will feel good about yourself when you help a person who cannot help himself. The feeling of altruism is good but donít get carried away and volunteer to do something before you know what all it entails. If you have any doubt at all about making a commitment, either say no, or make arrangements to get back to whoever is asking. Calm, cool and collected is what you seem to be to most of the people around you when that may not be the case at all. It is a good thing to appear this way. The complexion of a relationship will begin to change into something new and different on the 13th.   Someone that you may be at odds with will change the way they think about you. Itís a shame that you have to go to such extreme measures to prove your worth. 

Tolerance is needed in dealing with friends and loved ones who need your shoulder to cry on, even though they seem to end up in the same emotional mess they were in before by not learning from the past. They seem to go down the same path over and over.  Try to stay calm, listen to their woes and give them advice. Encourage them to try to figure things out for themselves. You canít control the behavior of these people but you could point out the fact that another approach may help solve their recurring predicament. Then find some time to be alone to connect to your inner self.  A wonderful chance at a brand new beginning is open for you this week. Keep your eyes open to the possibilities regarding your financial future. There will soon be a light at the end of the tunnel for you and you will have a new awakening in your heart. Think positively and avoid making the assumption that things will remain the same for you. You are not alone in your quest for a better future. Picture the best possible scenario for the next few months and replace negative thoughts with positive ones as they come.   This really works!

Issues dealing with money and property must be faced today. Check to see if your paperwork is in order. It would be wise to draw up a budget for the next few months and stick to it. If there are excesses in your life, cut them out and you will save more than just money. Get an annoying job done once and for all on the 10th.  Get in there and finish something that has been dragging on for some time now. You must leave your fickle habits of the past behind you before something or someone else can find you. You are the leader on the 11th and there are many that look to you for this quality. Look to the future with confidence and the knowing in your heart that as long as you do what you know is the right thing to do; you will be where you want to be. There are changes due at the end of the week, but youíll be steered in the right direction. Donít get rid of something you or someone else may be able to use later. By the same token, donít hold on to things that are unnecessary.

A little compassion will come in handy for some of you who are aggravated about something or someone who comes up way short of your expectations. It is difficult when you try your best to help someone only to find out they did little to help themselves. People can be hardheaded when it comes to taking the advice of older and wiser folks. Think about the times you failed to meet your own expectations. You may have to give someone a second chance just as I hope you were given in the past. Emotional issues come up this week and you may have to go out of your way more than once because someone didnít take care of business. Avoid giving more of your money or your soul than you can live with. This is not good for anyone involved. The reward for your unselfishness is coming, so donít allow resentment to make permanent home in your head.
