ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
If you are finding that your corporate ascent needs a bit of a push, this is the time to do it. Resolve to do what needs to be done to get your professional goals into gear and zoom ahead, up or even out the glass doors. You have what it takes. Now take it to the next level. Aries like to rule the roost. It’s time to bring out the frying pan and make fried chicken.
TAURUS (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
No matter how tired you feel or how bare your budget is, cart yourself to the nearest vacation spot and bask in relaxation and mellowness for a while. The holiday season might have left you with a frazzle but now its time to sizzle. Taureans find something special waiting from across the world... or even closer to home. But you have to get off your couch to find it.
GEMINI (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
2013 brings more than just a passing fancy or a fancy pass. Geminis who are avoiding intimacy will be drawn to the flame like any other innocent moth. Singe your wings and see how amazing it feels. Who knows what the fates will deliver once you take the bait? It could be a trip to the moon on gossamer wings. Let’s hope it’s not one of those crazy old things.
CANCER (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
Relationships have their valuable moments in early 2013. And they could bring more than just a feeling of security and a sense of accomplishment. There will be something extra. Something sacred. Something satisfying. So don’t be afraid to give a little more of yourself. You could wind up getting a lot more than you expect ... or even deserve, Cancer. Ahem.
LEO (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
Take stock of what you need to do in early 2013, especially on the job and in any health or diet regime. Then set out to do it. There are so many nit picky tasks and detailed projects that you have deferred that now, the best use of your time is to efficiently clean off your desk and cross things off your “to-do” list. Now don’t you feel better, Leo? Not yet?
VIRGO (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
The fun will not stop on New Years Eve Virgo. In fact the bon temps continue for another precious few weeks. So this is not the time to quietly gripe about your over-extended social calendar. It is time to continue the party and see how far you can ascend on your good vibes and personal fumes. Stock up on A-listers for use through the year. Catch your Z’s later.
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
Personal family issues come into the foreground in early 2013 and it will be a good idea to deal with all of them immediately. Libras strive for compromise and diplomacy but there are some things that require a stronger personal stand and honest opinion. Don’t worry - You will know when is when and which is which. Who, what, where and how is also up to you.
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
You know what to say and how to say it. Toss out your great ideas to the right and appreciative audience and see how things begin to take off. 2013 is a year of growth and accomplishment, Scorpio. But you will need to focus on the most important and neediest area of your life to tackle first. Love or money? Errr can you combine both...?
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
For those Sagittarians who have focused on their bottom line, 2013 may lead to greater consolidated riches and security. For those extravagant souls who have scattered their wealth in pursuit of enjoyment, the year brings an opportunity to replenish your vaults. But you have to get serious and practical. Cushion your nest egg so it can become a fluffy omelette.
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
2013 will be a year to remember if you carefully plan your course of action. Get involved in new and influential social groups that bring you in touch with important movers and shakers. Then move and shake yourself around town. Launch new ideas. Begin new projects. Is world domination in the cards? It depends on what game you are playing, Capricorn.
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
Cut out all the excess noise and listen carefully to your inner voice and intuition, Aquarius. There are things going on behind the scenes that will prove to be prescient and important. Even hidden enemies can be uncovered and de-clawed. Give back to the cosmos by getting involved in a good community cause or charitable effort. No good deed goes unrewarded.
PISCES (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
Friends from all walks of life will help you in some very unexpected ways all through early 2013. So go through your contacts and see who can become your first benefactor or mentor. And don’t stop there: Pisces who decide to swim in new schools can expand their net and catch some cache with new notables. Make a note of that and scribble on.
