ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
You are the one to see and be seen with now. And yet you may think that you need to modify your behavior to become more acceptable to others. This miscalculation may cause unintended upheaval in your career. Why do you feel that it’s so important to restrict yourself in order to be accepted by certain other folks? I say, let others adjust to you, Aries. Just be you.
TAURUS (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
Global travel plans take on a fuzzy, mystical quality. Despite the fog, it just feels right. You connect on deeper levels with people and discover things that bring you to new levels of compassion and understanding. That is until you need to make fast and concrete decisions. Keep your head in the clouds if you like, but keep those hooves planted firmly in reality, Taurus.
GEMINI (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
Will you risk alienating lovers by hanging around too much with friends? There will be times now when there is extra stress placed on certain sexual encounters. Hot Geminis are especially sociable and enjoy mingling with an extra dose of flirt. You may want to wine and dine closer to home now unless you eventually want to whine and dine alone.
CANCER (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
Relationships that may be teetering on the abyss could change course one way or the other. Try not to spend too much time at work while partners imagine all sorts of goings on. Cancers still searching for a soulmate may wind up with an unpleasant twist to a tryst. Blame it on excess, if you must. Pack extra money for a late night taxi home... if you-know-who lets you in!
LEO (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
Leos may be put to the test this week. Which of the competing interests will win out - A vacation of fun and frolic or the drudgery of the job? Increasingly blurry lines between commitments may cause extra stress and exhaustion. My advice is to make your priorities and stick to them. And the priority should be whatever eventually makes you happy, fulfilled and flush.
VIRGO (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
As much as you would prefer to always say the right thing at the right time, you may find that your best moves take on an uncontrollable life of their own. Try not to speak or act rashly, Virgo. Refrain from your more adventuresome party animal instincts. Instead of being the center of attention, you could wind up in some secluded corner. Maybe that’s better?
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
Libra can either take the advice of well meaning but sometimes pushy family members or can just plow ahead. Will you possibly waste valuable resources on an escapade that, at any other time, would hardly be worth the time, energy, money and effort? As you search for connection, don’t allow yourself to be put on display and held up for auction. Hey, any bids?
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
Scorpios can be led astray at work by those who do not have their best interests at heart. Avoid falling for any whisper in your ear which can get your whole thought process red hot and bothered. The cannons roar! The thunder claps! And you race off to your own personal Waterloo. So remember - If you don’t take the bait, you won’t get caught in the net.
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
You may squander your resources on wasteful personal interests. Fun and games wind up costing much more than expected, Sagittarius. This is especially true when it comes to gambling where the greater the risk, the greater the possible loss. Don’t be afraid to enjoy yourself this week but do it on the cheap. Why not get someone else to pay for your jolly times?
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
New projects start off with a bang. How well can you manage the tidal wave? Capricorns may be unable to stop the ever increasing flow of people, places and things demanding their attention. Too much may become much too much. Don’t worry. Somehow you will find a helping hand from close friends and family. Of course not without a wagging finger.
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
What hidden secrets emerge from out of nowhere when you least expect it? Let the fresh air blow, Aquarius, and feel the freedom. The cosmos suggests .. no demands... that you pursue charitable endeavors. Karma is as karma does, the spirits say. It may seem impossible to make your mark, but you will. Make it in indelible fluorescent ink and not in chalk.
PISCES (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
You think you are the leader of the pack but you will need to develop the resources to really pull it off. Pisces can become consumed with their own sense of self worth, especially when they hob nob in new elite social circles. “Is it hot in here or is it me?” you think to yourself. Maybe it’s just the temperature rising. You may really start sweating when the bill arrives.
