ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
The social world gravitates to you... and you looove it. Aries seek popularity plus this week and want to be accepted and part of the crowd. But that is such a waste of raw talent! Don’t squander your precious time on simply dancing along with the hoi polloi. You should call the tunes and strike up the band. But avoid polkas and anything with harmonicas.
TAURUS (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
As you graze through life, take note of any byways, detours and greener pastures that lead you to the next territory. It is time to wring very drop of experience from your sweat rag and make it pay off in impressive ways in your corporate arena. Choose your fights carefully; Taurus, it would be a shame to be the plate du jour when you were counting on being the head chef.
GEMINI (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
Events that unfold this week can make Geminis glow. Grab the world by the orb but be mindful of subtle signals that could send you hints about surprises around the corner. What you think is open season may just be a short window of opportunity. Decide and do after careful consideration. Taste everything that life has to offer except that graying liverwurst.
CANCER (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
Cancers set the world on fire this week and can wind up with heartburn if they over-indulge. Use your insatiable appetite to tie up a few loose ends or create some new ties that bind. Before you tighten the knot, seek some psychological centering. Are you falling into the same old patterns of hide and seek? Lie down and tell me all about it, baby.
LEO (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
Don't let yourself be held back by convention. The fates now set you on a course of over the top unorthodox antics that are bound to get you into mischief. Oh enjoy! It may seem that you can do no wrong. Take every advantage. Your appealing attitude converts even your most vociferous detractors. Prepare for your deep bow Leo and don't wear undies. Oh my!
VIRGO (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
It isn't healthy to work all the time Virgo. Stress builds to a breaking point and you are spread too thin among your assorted commitments. Try your best to cut the excess and attend only to the critical. You will feel much better and will be more effective. Spend your time preparing for the future and stop looking in the rear view mirror... unless you are ready to park.
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
Romance is in the air. Your heart is filled with the possibility of a fantasy that lasts forever, complete with the pitter patter of little feet. (cats...?) But be warned Libra - your honesty could create a host of unintended awkward moments that can upset your carefully constructed applecart of desire. So stick with the fantasy for now. Let reality bite later.
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
Scorpios want to be alone. Okay, not alone per sey but sequestered in quiet surroundings where you can relax, recharge and rejuvenate your essential oils. Don't retreat too long; Before you feel totally out of touch, reconnect by hosting a big festive event complete with all the trimmings and the brimmings. And add a bit of secret sauce you saucy thing.
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
You need to look no further than your own backyard for your fun, entertainment and gratification this week. Sagittarians might be peering over their back fence green with envy at the greener grass next door. No need to let the greedy gremlins bite. Actually there is everything you need close at hand and yet not underfoot. Stop, look and listen ... then act.
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
Your mercenary tendencies can get the better of you if you cannot balance your value system with your valuation system. Not everything has a price tag, Capricorn. Sometimes you can do something extravagantly special for someone else without expecting a payoff or monetary reward. Of course those times are few and far between .....
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
This is your birthday month Aquarius. Set your sights on a new year with an eye to improving the inner and outer you. Why not experiment with a new look? Everyone will notice and may not even laugh. Remember, this is the time when you draw attention to yourself by just breathing. Pack the breath mints, just in case you decide to do the garlic thing.
PISCES (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
As much as you will try to fade into the background, you can run but you cannot hide. And why should you hide? Pisces have every right to be loud and right in the center of attention. It’s getting pretty constraining always trying to behave to others expectations. Step into the limelight. You have nothing to lose but your neuroses and everything to gain for the future.
