Neptune redirects as retro Uranus squares Pluto. Our zesty dreams whip up into a tornado this week. Swoosh! Expect to be lifted off your feet and transported into an unexpected place. Take things as they come. You imagine that you are floating on air but pack a pillow just in case.

ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
Aries feel especially rambunctious and can be tempted into making a way-too-forceful first impression on certain well connected folks. Why do that? Because it’s there! If you thought that your professional path was etched in stone, think again. Expect a few eye openers this week as the earth moves and the walls sway. Will they show stress cracks? Be ready with plaster.
TAURUS (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
As much as you see yourself as sophisticated and worldly, expect to be taken down a few pegs this week. Your best kept secrets and crazy theories are broadcast globally and critiqued. Even your charitable efforts have an unintended impact. Look in the mirror and make some adjustments, Taurus. Settle for a slice of humble pie now and feast on caviar later.
GEMINI (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
If you stir and blend sexual passion into platonic relationships, do so at your own risk, Gemini. You think that you have found a friendly diamond in the rough but how rough do you really like all the complications that go with it? Hold off on any matchmaking lest your Love Boat turns into a Carnival Cruise. Try to get yourself into a quiet drydock and relax instead.
CANCER (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
Hard work may pay off but don’t compromise your relationships for the lure of the big paycheck. Cancers who ignore partners as they claw their way through the corporate jungle will bring the bacon home to an empty cave. Balance is everything and this week makes that lesson come home. Take notes and don’t burn the midnight oil into a waxy puddle.
LEO (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
Leos have trouble deciding whether they should relax and take some time off from work or put their nose to the grindstone and finish up some pending projects. Your mind is just not on the job. The decision does not get any easier this week when your energy is high but attention span is low. My advice: stack your papers neatly, close the door behind you and escape!
VIRGO (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
There is a very thin line between intoxicating sex just plain intoxication, at least this week. How many tall drinks will you quaff before you become woozy and swept off your feet? Virgos can have their pick of the litter and cat around to see where love leads them. Let’s hope it leads to a fantastic exotic adventure instead of a spicy over indulgence.
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
Even a mild discussion can escalate into a domestic war between partners and family this week. Each side will marshall its forces and make demands. Each side feels that it occupies the high ground. Libras always strive for compromise so give a little latitude now as emotions run high. Manipulate the situation to your advantage next week.
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
Scorpios can inadvertently spray their venom around the office this week. Oh my, what you may say! You intuitively know that nothing can be achieved by complaining or criticizing. If you feel your frustration rise and your emotions bubble and seethe, take a deep breath, count to ten and walk around the block. Heck, better count to one hundred.
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
Beautiful objects come with beautiful price tags. Inspired Sagittarians ache to demonstrate their good taste in any way possible and are willing to plow up their carefully tilled investment patch of green. Care to be an angel to a struggling theatrical troupe or become the sponsor of Party Inc? Hold your endowment until next week when it can buy benefits.
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
Quietly keep a high opinion of yourself even as family gets in their digs, Capricorn. Unresolved situations come to a head this week and the temptation is to give as good as you get. Instead, try to lower the heat from a full boil to a slow simmer. Roll with the punches... for now. You’ll have plenty of time to get your points across rather pointedly next week. Ouch!
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
Aquarians have some great ideas but your imagination can conjure more than a stray innocent dream. Intuition goes into overdrive and “little voices” impart their lurid and somewhat unbelievable secrets to you. While you may have impressive psychic powers don’t broadcast your news to others now. They wouldn’t understand. Use it to your advantage later.
PISCES (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
What price friendship? Pisces are in for a series of surprises in anything having to do with money and pals this week. The communal vault appears to be empty as more and more friends ask you for favors. Be compassionate but don’t be gullible. The lesson this week is - Don’t lend if you can’t afford and don’t paste money on people to cement friendships.
