Start your engines, compadres. Mars enters glorious Leo and life rockets upward. We succeed at anything and everything... at least we believe that we can. Repeat the mantra and light the fuse. Do I hear a sizzle and a pop?

ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
Rams feel good about themselves and good thing too. Find numerous ways to have fun and let your emotions run wild. Open yourself up to being giddy and fun seeking. Your giddiness and sense of fun knows no bounds (unless, of course, you are into it...). There is the chance that you will overdo but do you really care? Recuperate in the autumn.
TAURUS (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
Apparently there are a few things that you would like to get off your chest. And this week you cannot contain yourself any longer. Bulls can make any excuse to get the family together and can mend or bend a few fences in the process. You have your say no matter what you think the outcome will be. Spruce up your surroundings to get ready for the hordes.
GEMINI (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
Twins are a bit full of themselves ... and why not? You are quite the intellectual and are ready to share your insightful opinions at every opportunity. A mighty wind blows, a dust storm ensues. What you may find once the air has cleared is that it didn’t matter whether you were right or wrong. What really matters is that you said it loud and clear. Ahem!
CANCER (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
Keep a watchful eye on your bottom line, Crab. Your need for glam exceeds your capacity to pay. There are so many alluring goodies that catch your eye that you are tempted to spend fast, feckless and furiously. But before you whip out the wallet be sure that the object of your desire can deliver on its purported promise. Will you wind up with trash? Will you care?
LEO (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
Lions are prodded into taking a more active role in implementing any long dormant plans. There are no more “what ifs” and “oh wells” this week. Those stale excuses will no longer do. There is a short window of opportunity so get going. You sparkle and shine around others and can start a few social fires. Is it hot in here or is it you? Hey, nice ash.
VIRGO (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
There is a great deal of secretive activity going on behind the scenes. Much of it has to do with unresolved issues that you preferred to push under the rug. Keep an ear to the ground, Virgo. One of two scenarios appears to be in the cards; Either your hidden enemies are finally vanquished or they rise up for one last attempted coup. Prepare the guillotine for your revolution.
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
What is it about the events this week that accelerates all Libras into overdrive? Your social swirl whips up into a lather and your dance card fills to overflowing. Friends come to you from all corners, from every nook and cranny, from under every rock, or so it seems. Can you dance at two parties with only one tush? Well you will certainly try....
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
Scorps find themselves imbued with ambition and zest. This is the time to put your best professional foot forward and see how well you can impress those in charge. Confidence and calculated risks make the difference between sitting among the upper class and sulking in steerage. Have a great idea? Float it and see who gets carried away by it.
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
Itchy feet must be scratched this week. Archers feel confined by the usual and staid. They must break out and escape, damn the cost. Choose some unusual destinations now and see if there are some interesting distractions afoot. If money is tight, expand your international reach with a combination of food, wine and exotic company... virtual or otherwise.
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
Your sexual appetite is piqued this week. The most uninspired Capricorn gets an urge to merge. You have great stamina and are primed for a marathon rather than a short sprint. But try to be a bit discriminating. There is the off chance that the short term jolly can evolve into something much more serious. Or are you just into getting your jollies? Ho ho ho.
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
There is something going on in your relationships now. Do you feel more of an emotional connection or are you finding that the ties now bind? Aquarians wander into a crossroad of their own making and feel that changes need to be made immediately. There may be something that you say that brings understanding to a new level. Uh, will that be higher or lower?
PISCES (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
Are you taking vitamins? Are you exercising? It may seem that way even to lazy bones. Slothful Pisces may begin to feel robust and primed for action. Use this burst of energy to get a number of long standing tasks out of the way and prepare for new ones. At least if you are going to be a rat on a treadmill you might as well use it as aerobic fitness.
