ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
You are putting a great deal of effort into certain partnerships. Perhaps more than they deserve right now. Aries seek harmony and balance, often at any cost. But I suggest that you calm down and take things slowly this week. You will have plenty of time to bowl them over and get them to see things your way as the weeks progress. Timing is everything.
TAURUS (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
Try as you might, you may be unable to get co-workers to line up behind you. It may feel frustrating but if you are able to see things from their perspective, you may notice how a bit overbearing you can be. Why try to boss the course now, Taurus? It is better to allow others to find their own way and make their own mistakes. Yes, you can eventually say “I told you so.”
GEMINI (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
Geminis are in creative overload as all their pet projects begin to nip at their heels. Too much fun can begin to feel like work if you can’t find a way to prioritize. When in doubt, allow yourself to get caught up in the moment and have a flight of fancy. But don’t soar too high or your eventual descent back to earth (and the practical things in life) will be a doozy.
CANCER (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
Cancers might be content to loll around the house now but fight the urge. Your time will be better spent planting the seeds of future home-based or home-improvement projects. Also avoid any important discussions with relatives since you may become somewhat over emotional. Of course that may not be a bad thing if it gets you what you want.....
LEO (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
You have a way with words and this week, Leos are apt to say much more than they need to or want to. You speak from the heart and can become more emotional. This out of character behavior may confuse people and make them cautious in any negotiations with you. So before you melt into a pool of your own making, think first and speak later. Much much later.
VIRGO (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
Hold tight to your wallet, Virgo. You may be tempted to spend with reckless abandon and waste money. You may get caught up in an emotional tear and think that you can buy what you want. Wait. Things are still evolving and you must not jump to conclusions. There are some things money just can’t buy. Give me a few minutes to think about what they are....
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
Your need to reach out and touch someone ... anyone ... knows no bounds this week. Libras will try to press the flesh in new circles but may find that their best moves are missing the mark. You are just trying too hard to please. Give it a rest and surround yourself with those who know you well and love you despite everything. Hmm how large is that group anyway...?
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
The rumblings of lost loves past begin to grumble into thunder level noise. How many hearts have you broken, either knowingly or unknowingly Scorpio? This is the time to make amends to those who feel aggrieved. Well, at least appear to be contrite. Resolve not to kiss and tell, unless you want a few of your particulars plastered on walls. Oh do tell!!
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
Sagittarians may enjoy some solitude now when friends become a little too nosy and a little too pointed. It may become annoying but chalk it up to their desire to see that you are happy - no matter what! Exert patience. After all, they only want to help. Of course the smarter move is to find some calming alone time and just chill out. Just don’t become frosty.
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
Your shining corporate star needs a rest. Capricorns might misstep around the hallowed corridors of power. But that shouldn’t mean that you blend into the background and accept anything bosses dole out. Find roundabout ways to push your agenda and rely more on detail and smarts rather than lofty emotion. They will cheer for you eventually.
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
Does your reach exceed your grasp? Aquarians are known for sometimes going overboard in their quest to be recognized and admired. Now it is advisable for you to give your leash some slack and find ways to calmly wend your way through any new adventure. Too much push and pull will tip over the boat. There is nothing wrong with letting others steer ... briefly.
PISCES (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
Your razzle may not dazzle around lovers now. Your timing may be off or both of you could just be too tired to go through the dance. So why waste your best moves? Take some time out and recharge your batteries, Pisces. Tomorrow is another day and you will find that your personal charisma is back at peak form. Then stand back world!
