Horoscopes just for nurses!
The stars say you’ve got problems bubbling up around you: for a nurse, that means look closely at that IV and listen when your GI patient says something feels a little off in their tummy. What might seem like a gentle, babbling brook might really be a geyser – hey, wouldn’t NOW be a great time to get lunch?
Intensity is the order of the day, Taurus. We know you’re up for it: your legendary stubbornness and calm will serve you well when faced with the screaming family member who wants you to “Check on Dad Now!” Sadly, the stars don’t show that you’ll be receiving any psychic powers to enable you to tell which of your 4 male patients fathered this particular winner.
The week starts slow, but builds in excitement quickly. This is great news if you’re planning a vacation; not great news if you’re facing an influenza epidemic! Keep your head high and wash your hands frequently, Gemini. If you can make it to Friday, the weekend’s smooth sailing.
Drama, drama, drama, drama. Not your patients, Cancer. The patients are fine. Well, not fine. They’re in the hospital, after all. But the drama? It’s all the folks you work with. Lay low, and it will blow over. And that idea about ativan in the coffee pot? Not a good one.
The stars promise personal growth opportunities this week, Leo — and you know what that means! Lots of headaches and a half-inch stack of extra paperwork. Looking back, this will be a positive time for you. Try to remember that now.
Calm, level headed Virgo is fired up about something. Don’t be surprised to find yourself dragging out the textbooks or checking references online: something has captured your curiosity and you won’t be happy until you find a solution. Just go with it: try to fight it, and you’ll make everyone miserable.
All that gentle balance, grace, and calm equanimity you’re known for goes right out the window this week, Libra. You might feel unsettled — but a tremendous amount of good comes out of your change of pace. Good for you for getting the floor in order!
Sex, sex, sex!!! Does that get your attention, Scorpio? It should — your week is destined to be full of romance. One caution — it might not be you getting all the loving. Look out for those patients who can’t wait for their Ivs to be unhooked to hook up!
Everyone else might be having a rough week, Sagittarius, but you’re sitting pretty. Don’t feel bad about being upbeat and chipper when everyone else is down: your smiles, jokes, and good humor are just what the doctor ordered. Or it’s what he would have ordered, if he ever picked up the page.
Capricorn has some crisis of confidence this week — perhaps on the 9th? — but have no fear. With some determination and focus, everything will turn out all right. Remember, you can do this!
You are the peacemaker. Need to get the baby’s father away from the mother’s husband? You can do it with a smile and a word, Aquarius. Sweet talk a patient out of AMA? It’s all good. Just remember not to compromise your own values in the process — and let others take the lead after the 10th.
All right Pisces! It’s your week: everyone wants, needs, and values you! Of course, this might mean you’re a little wiped out — say by the 8th? — but a surprising turn of events makes you smile on the 10th!
