ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
While others lounge the summer away, Aries can be very productive. Your energy levels rise with the temperature and you are inspired to take action. So go and get some things done. Clean off your desk and tackle long standing, detailed tasks. Before you know it you will be faced with the ultimate challenge - how to fill your spare time. How to indeed!
TAURUS (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
Make merry this week. Taureans have fun running with artistic movers and shakers. In fact, your schedule can become frenetic and totally out of control. Try to find time in your packed schedule to kick back and allow the inspiration to flow gently over you. Not everything needs to be rushed, pushed or overpowered.... unless that actually inspires you!.
GEMINI (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
Your home life becomes the center of your universe. What delightful domestic entertaining events can you plan now? But don’t become reduced to just a kitchen drudge. Geminis deserve a bit of pampering and quiet time to enjoy their surroundings. Be sure to wedge in a few intimate nights alone or with a certain you know who. Ooo, who knew?
CANCER (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
Yak, yak, yak. The words flow, great ideas surface and before you know it, there is a whirlwind of excitement created in your world. Can you harness all these stray thoughts and put them into successful action, Cancer? It is said that this week can be all talk and little action. Let’s show the experts where they are wrong. Of course you will find that easy to do!
LEO (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
Often, monetary security is not on your list of top priorities. It should be, Leo. Thankfully, you now make some impactful inroads into your future financial security. Do your homework, ask the right questions and take notes. Then embark on some careful investments. Before you know it you make money hand over fist. Where have I heard that before....?
VIRGO (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
It is a time of rebirth, personal growth, planting of seeds for the future and a generally delightful and affirming time. So what are you waiting for, Virgo? Get out of your easy chair and make your impression beyond the couch cushion. Anything that captures your heart and imagination can become reality. Your fans await. Are you ready?
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
Libras feel an inner need, almost an ache to do something good for the community. Now, anything you decide to do to volunteer or contribute will have extra oomph. If you are faced with too many choices, allow yourself to sit back and review them carefully. You have a knack to intuit just what will go the distance and what will sit at the starting line.
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
You recognize the importance of friendships. If you do nothing else over the next weeks, be sure to devote some time to strengthening platonic bonds or joining a new club or interest group. Scorpios are very sociable now so grab onto the social zeitgeist and steer the attention to your direction. Grab your paddle and start getting somewhere.
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
You work best under pressure. The fates now show Sagittarians what they are made of professionally. If the past few weeks have been a hornets nest of intrigue and risk, start poking around and get into the fray. If the past few weeks have had their times of quiet, steamy brewing, pour your efforts into the general stream and get wet. Rewards are for winners, champ.
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
Your August has had a slow start, but there is plenty of time to make up for it. Recharge your energies and push yourself into the world. Plan a glorious, exciting and exotic vacation Capricorn. Explore some new venues with some new travel mates. If money is tight, find your excesses closer to home. Nothing succeeds like excess.... or something like that.
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
The week has a way of making you sexy, sultry and very yummy. This is quite a departure from the usual. Aquarians can bottle and sell it but don’t let it sit on the shelf too long. Overcome your shyness and paint the town red. Use this energy to lure any would-be buzzy lovers into your flytrap. Add water and lots of sun. Hurry and make good use of time!
PISCES (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
This is not the time to be alone or on your own. Emotional connection rather than independence can ultimately get you what and who you want. Reassess current partnerships (and decide to improve or change them). Or decide to totally change direction and discover new ones. But it’s not always about you, Pisces. Sometimes it is all around you.
