ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
If you have been distracted at work, it is a good time to get back on track. So what if it’s more of a grindstone than a track? All efforts increase your stamina, attention and aspirations. Aries find clear ways to handle any detailed set of tasks. Your opinion counts as well because you speak truthfully and from experience. Put in your two cents on the job. Heck, put in a buck.
TAURUS (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
Taureans get with the artistic program this week. Let your imagination soar and upend some oldie, moldy conventions with a brand new course of action. You never know what masterpieces you will create out of thin air and dreams. It is also a time of fun and excess. Gird your loins and venture forth. Or, for some of you, maybe it’s griddle your loins.... ahem.
GEMINI (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
Your communication is focused and delivered in measured, decisive dollops. Bellow your opinions and don’t abbreviate, Gemini. You have the uncanny ability to mix insights with logic, resulting in an unassailable argument. Will you have one way conversations or enter into a dialogue? I personally have no problem with dictators as long as they can listen sometimes.
CANCER (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
Plan any home related projects. Your mind is sharp and focused on what-looks-good-where down to the smallest detail. Cancers will not only make their lairs more enticing, they can also plan the perfect get-togethers that will guarantee to get the right folks in the right place in the right frame of mind. I guess you also know who-looks-good-where.
LEO (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
Leos turn their thoughts to the bottom line and why not? This week is good for investing and feathering your nest for future cushiness. Concentrate on financial planning and ask the right monetary questions. Remember, with the right advisor the path to true retirement bliss may not be that far off. Send me a destination photo when you arrive.
VIRGO (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
You have great insight into what makes others tick. All ears tune into your frequency for the next few weeks. So make your best moves while the energy is hot, hot, hot. Virgos have probably already written out their personal treatise so dust it off and give it a yell. Be kind to strangers. You’ll meet a tour busload of them now and they will need directions.
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
Libras benefit from looking inward this week. You usually talk up a good game but now it’s time to put your money where your mouth is. Maybe it’s matter of becoming active in a worthy charitable cause. Your meticulous planning skills enable you to parlay your innate charm into creating the uber fundraiser baited as a party. Party with a purpose.
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
How many different ways can you think of to meet and greet new people? You will think of quite a few. The group dynamic gets all your juices flowing. And don’t forget your tried and true pals. Scorpios thrive among compadres and they are supportive of even your most outrageous antics. Hurry before you lose your steam... and your nerve.
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
Sagittarians are now fully appreciated for their inspired professional efforts as the world begins to catch up with you. Don’t give up the fight or surrender to corporate-think. Now you can translate ideas into the vernacular. Maybe an inspirable powerbroker will understand and give you the accolades you richly deserve. Okay, take the raise instead.
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
Think more expansively this week. It’s time to register for that course that you’ve been talking about for so long. Or learn a thing or two through travel. Exotic climes can lead to almost anything and anyone, if you are lucky. So get lost. Even Capricorns on a budget can manage to raise the temperature. Maybe it’s just through a spicy meal though.
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
Explore a range of sexy outlets and assorted playthings. You seem to attract anyone you want this week. Aquarians should not content themselves with mere daydreams however. It is a good time to plan your best move. Will you just be another pair of ragged claws scuttling across the floors of silent seas? If so be sure to wear hot pants to help boil the waters.
PISCES (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
What are your dreams, your hopes are your goals, Pisces, especially when it comes to a particular relationship? Now, in addition to your own concerns, also ask what others want and what you are prepared to give. Put it out there, talk about it and also listen and process. Remember: There are three sides to every issue; yours, theirs and the reality.
