ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
Fun-loving Aries might have found that pleasurable pastimes were more trouble than they were worth over the past weeks. Not even your innate luck paid off. But before you stow your lampshade hat and go back to work, give your artistic muse another chance. Opportunities abound to re-enter the party circuit and regain your flair. Wrest the best of every fest.
TAURUS (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
How many phone calls from long lost (and needy) relatives have you fielded over the past weeks? How many familial disagreements based on mixed messages have you endured at the same time? Too many! But the coast is clear for saying what you mean and meaning what you say Taurus. Get your point across without poking an eye or breaking a relationship.
GEMINI (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
Your communication efforts over the past weeks prove that no matter how polished and erudite you think you are, others can disagree. Isn’t it amazing how your delivery can impact your message? But all is not lost, Gemini. You can turn on the charm to an overcompensating painful blinding glare... but let’s try to be a bit more subtle for now.
CANCER (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
The big payoff is yet to come so be patient, Cancer. Even your best fiscal moves did not seem to go in the intended direction. But you can regain your financial footing this week. The secret of your success is to listen carefully to sage advice, do your necessary research and don’t expect instant gratification or payoff. Be a bull or a bear but not a pig.
LEO (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
Your first impressions might have been less than stellar recently but now you regain your confidence and feel your oats. Oh boy! Leos step into the limelight and bring the wattage up a few volts. There are a few folks who aspire to gravitate into your orbit. Be brash. Be bold. Mean what you say and say what you mean. Hmm, just what DO you mean??
VIRGO (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
It has become so easy to listen to the advice of others. In fact recently you might have questioned your own good judgement and relied on too many outside opinions. Stop it and clear the communications static. It is time to listen to those insistent inner voices, go with your gut and see where it leads you. Give your crystal ball a polish and see who glows, Virgo.
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
Were you once highly sociable and now find yourself checking and rechecking your breath? If so you can regain your social status this week. Libras may have made a few accidental faux pas around pals. They forgive you. Now forgive yourself and get back into the swim of things. Pack a bathing cap for those splashy parties. Everybody into the pool!
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
Your professional path had a few potholes in it. Just when you thought that you scored a few points with the powers that be, some of your lobs managed to go into the foul zone. Before you give up the game, try try again this week. Scorpios can regain their position and go from the defense to the offense. Err, how offensive will you be?
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
Is it time for a long luxurious trip or even a quick getaway? Perhaps you should start to plan for that fantastic vacation now. Opportunities present themselves and all sorts of fun things manage to fall into place. If money and time are tight, Sagittarians should consider refreshing and recharging any way they can. Let’s get verrrry creative ....
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
Petty tantrums and silly disagreements may have become your preferred ways of communicating with a certain someone over the past few weeks. Well those days are over. Let bygones be bygones and be your natural mellow self with this impossibly manic person. Who knows what can develop between the two of you when you start to smile? Say cheese, Capricorn!
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
All your great efforts at dieting and exercising may have hit a wall. More pain and no gain. But today is a new day and Aquarians can resume their health regimes with renewed vigor and greater success. Even a small modest effort can now produce impressive results. Remember, swimsuit season is upon us .... unless swimsuits are optional.
PISCES (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
If your love missives have been missing their mark, blame your lousy aim on the cosmos and resolve to give it another try this week. You will be given ample opportunity to connect to others on a deep and meaningful level. Pisces are hopeless romantics. Give yourself another chance to make your message count. Who knows which count or countess will respond?
