It might help to practice self-reliance this week, as you may not be able to count on anyone but yourself. Family, friends, and a partner could be marching to the beat of their own drums and find obligations too onerous. Yet an unexpected invitation may be forthcoming to brighten your outlook and let you know who your pals really are. Where finances are concerned, you might find it easier to get a loan or extra credit. Even better - consider putting extra cash aside for a rainy day!
