The Mercury retrograde in Aries can lead us on to wastful tangents. But don’t worry; Soon it redirects and gets us back on track. What you thought you could squeeze in your hand can still leak out like jello. But nothing will stain you if you wear vinyl.... or is it cellophane?

ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
Aries seem to gracefully maneuver through professional twists and turns, no matter how difficult. Your political acumen and sense of corporate survival is nothing short of amazing. But it may begin to wear you out. Continue to keep up with every possible surprise even if you are tired of your tap dancing. I see a reward on the horizon. A raise ... or early retirement?
TAURUS (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
Travel may bring a range of surprises and send you on a wild chase. Luggage may be lost, reservations may be changed or your travel companions may take a new route. You believe that you are planning a serene little getaway, but any best laid plans begin to take on a seamy underworld life of their own. Who knows? You may just enjoy it, Taurus!
GEMINI (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
Sexy Geminis may find that their love nests either hatch a new affair or contain a couple of scrambled eggs. You conjure up a variety of seductive maneuvers that may fall flat or unexpectedly light the flame of passion. Be very explicit in what you want and expect from others. The road to true lust may not run smoothly but you can always enjoy the bumps and grinds.
CANCER (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
Cancers ache for a relationship where they are adored and revered. But you are getting a lot of mixed signals from would be partners and, if you are currently in a relationship, may be feeling like you are doing too much of the giving and not enough of the getting. Don’t commit to someone who does not measure up to your standards. You deserve the very best.
LEO (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
Leos may find themselves buried with a lot of work at work. If your desk looks like a disaster area, blame it on being far too important to focus on the details and take the day off. Pursue the big picture and try to find others to lend a helping hand. But be very clear on your expectations of them. Did you really say delegate or desecrate? Hmm.
VIRGO (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
You may be tempted to take any fun activity to extremes, whether it’s partying, gambling or even creative projects. It is difficult for Virgos to know when they’ve taken things to the outer limits now. When in doubt, rely on a few close friends to rein you in. Of course, you need to choose friends who are not usually party hounds themselves!
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
Past rifts with family may come into the forefront now. Libras can feel that one relative in particular does not give them the understanding they need. The temptation is to say it as you see it but if you do so, try to be diplomatic. Miscommunication is possible and could cause further disharmony. You catch more flies with honey than with vinegar.. before you swat them.
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
Hone your personal message before you share it with others now. Scorpios can either sound like a guru or a goon. Instead of fanning the air, why not just sit back and let others do the talking? Try to keep your more inflammatory opinions to yourself for the time being. There will be time to change the landscape with your great ideas in a few weeks.
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
Others look to you for all types of support - from emotional to financial. But be a bit more suspicious and savvy. With your good and trusting nature, you can become a soft touch for a sob story. Sagittarians may find that they are wasting hard earned dough on assorted cheap and not so cheap trinkets. Don’t spend too much on too little.
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
Although you tend to have a clear idea of who you are, you may start to have a few doubts. You may wrestle with issues like “Who am I?” and “Am I reaching my potential?” Try to relax and go with the flow, Capricorn. You have time to set your plans and find your look. Let’s hope it doesn’t involve a peekaboo orange velveteen jumpsuit...
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
Aquarians should not let their fertile imaginations hold them back from achieving everything they want to accomplish and deserve. Use this time to re-examine your charitable contributions to your community and the amount of good karma you spread around town. There will be a reward at the end of the rainbow. No it is not a leprechaun.
PISCES (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
There is an unspoken understanding among friends that no matter how bizarrely you behave, they will still love you. You may now test the limits of such friendships as your imagination runs wild. Try to rein in your more volatile antics. There is something about a creative Pisces unleashed that could scare the pants off anyone. Hmm, on second thought....
