Other people may be your bugaboo this week, and meanwhile you have work to get done. Normally you’re not one to blow off your BFFs, but Thursday is an excellent day to turn off your phone, light a candle and write—even if it’s just a to-do list.
Your Weekly Horoscopes: May 26 to June 1
Taking on so many obligations that you’re courting burnout? Your intentions may be golden, but you can’t volunteer to watch your niece and pick up soup for Grandma and counsel your brother on how to get out of his speeding ticket without eventually needing someone to help you. It’s OK to say no.
You might feel caught between your job and your significant other this week. The late nights are grueling, but you feel duty-bound to oblige every client request. Make it up to your partner (to whom you’ve sworn a different kind of duty) by taking an email-free weekend trip. That’s an easier job, for sure.
Make sure you loop in your partner when it comes to financial concerns. Secrecy about money can be a relationship-killer, and it doesn’t do you any favors to bear the burden of worry alone. Opening up may not be your M.O., but it’ll immediately lighten your load.
Doing chores because you’re procrastinating on other work isn’t quite the life hack you think it is—even if the lavender-fresh dishes do actually make you feel better. When you’re feeling that anxiety, try to meditate a little to relax your mind. The stakes won’t feel so high once you confront them.
If you are stressed about money (and who can blame you), try to soothe yourself with non-material pleasures. Go for a walk, bake a pie from scratch, spend a night with the family doing jigsaw puzzles. You’re (a little!) richer than you feel.
