ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
A simple excursion may evolve into an out of control adventure this week. Aries often brace for excitement. Oh be careful of what you wish right now! Plan all grand voyages carefully, sailor. The seas could suddenly become turgid and overturn your craft. Let’s hope there will be some helpful mates to give you a hand and pull you up.
TAURUS (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
Taureans are ready to take the sexual plunge but may jump in over their heads now. You are in love with love and give your heart to all comers. Try to be discerning and move in new social circles for your hunt. It would be a shame to ruin a perfectly good friendship by taking it on the wrong course. Love is in the air this week but it sort of smells like broccoli.
GEMINI (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
Relationship issues are blown out of proportion now. There are many more demands on your time. Geminis may institute a zero tolerance policy and demand change but hold off. Try instead to exert some patience with partners and would-be partners. It would be a shame to spend the upcoming party season sipping champagne with your cat. Hmmm, or is it??
CANCER (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
Cancers find themselves buried under a load of paperwork on the job this week. And no matter how fast you work, you will find it difficult to keep up with the increasing demands of the marketplace. Before you give up and let things fall through the cracks, learn to prioritize, strategize and delegate. Escaping the humdrum is futile anyway right now.
LEO (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
Party hound Leos think that they can go the distance but now you must put that thought to the acid test. It’s possible that in the spirit of the moment, you will imbibe that one drink too many and spend the next day hunkering down and avoiding loud noises. Instead of feeling your age the day after, I suggest that you behave your age the night before. Good luck.
VIRGO (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
This week highlights family affairs. Virgos are hankering to blow things out of proportion. Dramatics aside, there is nothing to be gained by pushing the familial hot button now. Instead of storming the scene, take a breath and draw your line in the sand a couple of months from now. In the meantime, think only happy thoughts, and avoid sourpusses.
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
Diplomacy may escape you this week as you may say the exact wrong thing at the wrong time. This can be very uncomfortable for you but you can still do it in a charming manner. Libras are best advised to keep their more revolutionary thoughts to themselves for the time being and tone their “must say” messages for a general audience. When in doubt, just smile.
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
This may seem like an opportune time to hit it big or lose it big in the financial arena. You are tempted to go for the big buckaroos without doing the necessary fact checking. Pyramid schemes seem like sure things. Yeah, right. It will be the truly wise Scorpio who realizes that all that glitters is not gold. In fact, it may not even be metal. Bite it to be sure...
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
Stand back and give the wild one some space when Sagittarians let loose this week. This exuberant out of control energy encourages you to boss the course in social situations. If folks don’t do things your way, tough! You are as subtle as a jack hammer and about as pleasant. Be careful of dominating others, unless, of course others prefer it that way...
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
Everything you have tried to hide in the past is exposed this week. As things begin to float to the surface Capricorns are encouraged and ready to tell it like it is. It feels quite cathartic to dump your cosmic garbage on the highway but be careful of throwing out too much; There is sure to be something (or someone) worth keeping if you take time to separate the real trash from all the posturing.
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
Compadres demand more of your attention and personal resources this week. Give till it hurts Aquarius - A generous favor to a friend in need will not be forgotten. Of course there may be some friends who become bottomless pits of need and greed. In that case, draw the line and cut the ties of dependency quickly. They may even thank you....errrr.... one day.
PISCES (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
Just when you thought your career was cruising on course, a strong gust of wind blows your roadmap out the window. And yet, surprises are good for the soul and lead you to new, different opportunities. Dust yourself off and try try again. Once you get your juices going, you catapult to new heights. Don’t bump your head on the glass ceiling, Pisces.
