ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
It may be autumn but your personal temperature is rising. Intimate relationships heat up (if both of you are on the same wavelength) or you can cast about for your next costar. Aries feel the urge to increase the level of connection with just about everybody. Not a wise idea. Don’t overload your socket. Strive for quality and not just quantity... for a change.
TAURUS (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
Once you can divert your attention from the nitty gritty details of everyday life and gaze out at the landscape, you may find the answer to many of your long unanswered questions. The secret is to look up and stop obsessing. Taureans seek personal meaning and expansion. Explore both existing and new relationships for the secret sauce. Add salt for taste.
GEMINI (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
This week may not be terribly exciting but there is an opportunity to finally dispatch many day to day tasks that have been gathering dust on your desk. Geminis master any job and have greater powers of concentration and application. What a nice change of pace! Stop procrastinating, roll up your sleeves and get to work. There is time to relax and reap rewards next week.
CANCER (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
Find time to lie back and smell the flowers. Fun and creative pastimes and delightful pursuits have a way of fitting into your busy schedule just when you need a lift. Don’t fight the mellow vibes, Cancer. See if you can combine business with pleasure; the drops of creative juice that you squeeze today can become the expansive masterpieces of tomorrow.
LEO (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
If you are constrained by family rules and expectations, this is the week to break free of the restrictions. Clear out your mental cobwebs and think anew. Leos are more diplomatic than usual with relatives. But no matter what is said, do what you must do to be fulfilled and happy. Life is far too short to wait for someone elses grudging approval.
VIRGO (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
No one would ever confuse you with a gossip. But now you seem to be much more open, chatty and frank. Use it to your advantage, Virgo. Say what you feel and feel what you say in both love and war. Refine your more inflammatory remarks so you can take your manifesto to the immediate world and set the stage for your personal revolution.
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
Extravagant Libras finally get down to financial brass tacks this week. It is never too late to tally up all your assets and apply them to the bottom line. If you come up short, this may be the time to find some spare change under the couch cushions. There is an easier solution though. Resolve to harness your finances before they hogtie and brand you.
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
Prepare for your grand entrance this week. It has been months in the making. Don’t be shy and retiring now. Meet and greet and don’t stop until you have exhausted all opportunities. Scorpios display more self confidence than usual. It may be that, as you open up to the world, you will get a few insights into the true you. Do you like who you see?
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
Go with your intuition this week as the volume is turned up on your internal thoughts. There is something going on under the surface that wiggles and grooves to your tune. Dance along and take advantage of this temporary gift, especially as it relates to any long term plans. Sagittarians are on the verge of a breakthrough. You break it, you buy it. So enjoy it.
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
Grab a few compadres and create a new social swirl. Capricorns find that large social gatherings provide them with more than just a pleasant platonic afternoon. They, in fact, offer you a greater sense of connection, affirmation and personal identity. There are many parties that vie for your attention. Ah but see which one offers the open bar.
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
You are political persuasion personified. Aquarians whip up their best diplomatic cream and are ready, willing and able to spread it around. You are the one with both the charm and the great ideas this week. This would be a good time to grease the corporate machinery and slide into the inner sanctum. Make an iron fist in a velvet glove your fashion statement.
PISCES (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
Pisces cast an expansive net. Your influence can reach far and wide so take a walk on the wild side and see what the world has to offer. The urge to explore and experience the unusual and exotic may be too tempting to resist even if your bank account is bare. If you’re too strapped to travel far why not study something new closer to home? No names please....
