Feisty Mars enters Libra and squares volcanic Pluto. Oh no. Our best of good intentions have a way of running amok this week. This may be good for devil-may-care types but for those of us with a bit of a conscience, it’s better to think it rather than act on it. Try to scramble your cracked eggs to make a souffle.

ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
Aries should prepare for a grand dance in their personal relationships. If you’re hankering to revise, refresh or review a certain partnership don’t be surprised if it results in a complete upheaval. It’s a breath of fresh air if it cleans out festering problems and solves them. However, if your driving a steamroller, be careful of crushing a few toes. Ouch!
TAURUS (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
If there was ever a time that Taureans could be tempted to blurt out the wrong thing, this week could be it. Words take on a gale force all their own so think before you fan the air. Complain if you must but make sure you are totally justified in your opinions. If you insist on being heard all I can say is expect fireworks that can go viral. Hey it could be good...
GEMINI (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
Fun may be far more expensive than you think. This is not a particularly good time for Geminis to go into the red with their green. Other folks may be able to risk their swag and win big but not you at this time. Try to involve yourself in more creative and cheaper low-risk pursuits. How about sharing a box of fingerpaints with a handy friend?
CANCER (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
They say that rewards come to those who sit and wait but I disagree. This week Cancers can cut the waiting time on any project that impacts their public persona. Dig deep into your resources (meaning all sources including family) and see what happens. Focus on home-based projects and don’t forget to take out the garbage. Anyone we know?
LEO (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
Leo are moved to speak...no, roar... to make their opinions known. My opinion is that you should carefully monitor and edit your screed. Commentary leads to dysentery and may cause some surprising fallout from some very unexpected, heretofore hidden places. Your communication about as subtle as a descending anvil. So keep looking up!
VIRGO (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
You think money will solidify friendships but it can as easily cause great chasms. Consult the financial tea leaves before you sponsor a party or event. Some relationships may chaff at the bottom line and will not run as smoothly as you would like this week. When in doubt, party on the cheap or encourage potluck soirees. Save the champagne for next month, Virgo.
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
Actions taken to jump start your personal agenda spark changes in your career. Libras love to savor the center stage and this week you have opportunities that are too tempting to resist. Be sure that your spotlight doesn’t overshadow certain relatives. Calculated action could catapult you to the top of the family list. The question is: Which list is that?
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
Doing a good deed could lead to great, unexpected rewards. Scorpios must maneuver carefully as the most unassuming effort could spiral out of control. Intuitive sparks can illuminate the landscape. Collect and connect your various shards of information to get to the solution to the puzzle. How many pieces of your mind will it require?
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
Friends think they have your best interests at heart but they wind up tossing some rather rotten garbage onto your path of true lust. Sagittarians find that there is extra stress placed on the range of relationships - platonic and passionate. You may be attracted to some rather unusual types now. Will you find a gem among the trash. It depends on which dump you frequent.
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
Are you able to handle your fast corporate rise? Let’s see how it goes this week as Capricorns are pushed onto the fast track to the professional executive boardroom. They say that the scent of power is alluring and you will wear it well. Try to splash that fabulous scent around and then get out there and meet and greet. You get ahead of any stinky competitor.
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
Aquarians find that their minds soar into the stratosphere this week. Global ideas and compelling political philosophies have a powerful impact on anything secretive and inspirational. So be discerning and see what a great cause first requires of you. You enjoy the thought of a proletariat revolution but you are hard pressed to give up all those nifty perks.
PISCES (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
Pisces have their hot-spots tickled this week. Woo hoo. But sexual antics can stir up distractions in the workplace if you are not careful. This could mean that you meet your next feast du jour at the watercooler or that the light bite from last night becomes the main course at your next departmental retreat. Who knows what is up your sleeve... or other garments.
