ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
Last week’s corporate darling could bite the hand that feeds them. Oops. All this professional adulation could go to your head but resist the temptation, Aries. Maintain your current cruising speed and allow some more anxious drivers to pull ahead for a short while. Pacing is everything - By next week you are back to top form and will speed past any old clinker.
TAURUS (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
The wide world continues to call out to you. Do you heed the siren call or stay put closer to home? You can easily reach out to those who can help you expand your horizons but recognize your limits, the risks at this time and tread carefully. Look before you leap. It won’t be long before you get back on your global journey to explore every possible nook and cranny.
GEMINI (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
Flirtatious Geminis could get their hands caught in the nooky jar. Your eyes are too big for your anatomy. Be more discerning, at least for this week, and maintain some form of decorum (and secrecy) around lovers and would-be lovers. Soon enough you will have the opportunity to increase your sugar intake and develop more cavities once again.
CANCER (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
Keep a discerning eye on simmering partnership issues lest they boil over and make a mess. A stray thought, a careless word, could set others into palpitations. It is better to relax, lie back and enjoy each others company. And if you are a Cancer who is checking out new schools of opportunity, try a new bait that will help you net the big fish. No, not worms.
LEO (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
The job continues to present it challenges but that is no reason for you to take any drastic action just to make a point. In fact, your point could come back to stick you. So relax, Leo, and calmly bide your time. There will be plenty of opportunity to successfully fight for the low-level spoils next week. Save your energy for capturing the big prize.
VIRGO (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
When is too much fun too too much fun? When you allow yourself to push beyond the limits of your energies just to have one last good time. There will be many more parties and events to savor, Virgo. This week resist the temptation to dance at too many parties with just one tush. Quality, not quantity is the secret to your success.
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
Libras can’t seem to sit still this week. There is just too much going on and staying at home seems so boring. But you will find there is a lot to do and fun to be had around the house. You just have to get creative about it. Invite some pals over. Plan some redecoration. Reach out to some long lost relatives. You never know what who wash up on your front door.
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
Even the most astute and strategic Scorpio may inadvertently say something out of line this week. But don’t worry - you can’t do much damage as long as you are able to laugh it off. So keep your sense of humor and be as diplomatic as possible. By next week you will be able to charm the cleverest of snakes. This week you could get bit.
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
Planning for your 2013 financial security never seemed so easy or so sure. Seemingly great ideas for making quick money come to you from a variety of sources. But don’t rush into anything. Accept each suggestion and file it in your research folder. Nothing should be risked until all aspects of each “great” deal are explored. When in doubt, stuff your mattress.
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
This week can be a time of great personal rejuvenation. Capricorns have a burst of energy that helps them feel more confident and important. Good. This is the perfect time to capitalize n the people you have just met. They will help you make you next big move, launch new projects and seek new experiences. How new is new? Be very inventive.
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
Secret admirers make themselves known . Or is it that you nurture a secret love? Whatever you are sweeping under your carpet is released into the air this week. In fact there is nothing that you can hide without someone discovering it. Good thing too Aquarius. There are some secrets that are not worth keeping. In fact become an open book that is book marked often.
PISCES (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
Pisces are advised to add a jolt to their social life this week. Don’t sit at home waiting for someone to stop by. Reach out beyond your usual gang and expand your contact list. Join new clubs and find ways to enter more exclusive organizations. The folks you meet now can impact your life through the year. Hop on! By next week the party train my leave without you.
