Virgo [August 22nd to September 21st] 

If you travel a lot, there’s a way to get traveling and packing down to a science. If you’re not a jet-setter, then there’s a chance you could be out of practice and over-pack. I over-pack because I believe that once I leave home, then I’m leaving behind all chances to be fully prepared for…whatever.  Well, that’s why priorities are important. Let me continue with that metaphor: You can either spend the extra $50 to have packed everything and pay for overage or pack lighter and use the $50 to get some disposable things when you arrive elsewhere.  Life can seem a lot like that this week, whether your feet leave higher than 3 feet off the ground.  If you want to get creative with how you prepare for crises or changes ahead, I suggest Saturday as the sit-down day to think up some contingency plans and to get some insight on how to handle things differently.
