Jupiter redirects and we have a certain spring in our step this week. Boing! Although we still have a bit of work ahead of us, authentic opportunities begin to present themselves. Apply the axle grease and beware of low ceilings.

ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
What is it about Aries and money this week? You are either cheap to a fault or spend with such reckless abandon that you almost guarantee fiscal struggle. Get serious about your dough. Not only can you learn a valuable lesson about investing and pacing, you may even plant a few penny acorns that grow to mighty money oaks. Hey, can you spare a few leaves?
TAURUS (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
Don’t let a few social gaffs cramp your style, Taurus. The past few months may have had more than its fair share of missteps, especially among unfamiliar audiences. Forget the past imperfect first impressions - folks have short memories anyway. We are now entering a new dimension this week. So resolve to try try again. Keep trying and don’t be trying.
GEMINI (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
You left your flank exposed and hidden enemies have been having a field day poking you in your soft underbelly whenever they pleased. While this may sound delightful, it has in fact prevented you from realizing some substantial personal gains. Go for blood this week. You are now a force with whom to be reckoned. Poke them back, Gemini... and I don’t mean gently.
CANCER (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
If pals have been getting on your nerves, try to forgive and forget this week. Cancers are known for their politeness and caring (as well as their uncompromising and often nit picky attitude). Accept the fact that there are two sides to every argument. (No - not your side and the wrong side.) It is time to take an objective look at old grievances. You may be right anyway.
LEO (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
Corporate life has been a game of chutes and ladders for quite a long time. It is not surprising therefore that many Leos expect that each baby step forward can result in a giant step backwards. Chin up, baby; Simon says that those slippery days are over. Every exertion pays off incrementally. How much are you willing to exert? And with whom?
VIRGO (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
Don’t close off your mind this week. This is the time to expand your horizons and see how much new stimuli can ... well ... stimulate. Virgos can benefit from either a last minute trip or a new approach to an old routine. Cruise the internet or a new neighborhood bar. Anything that you can do to get out of your itchy old skin and into a new one will tickle you.
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
Have you been off your mark, Libra? Are you feeling stale as yesterday’s toast? There is still life in the old body yet. Treat yourself to a day of relaxation and meditation to make both your inner and outer surfaces smooth and silky. Passion and vitality will soon return and you will regain your reputation as the bucking bronco once more. Yahoo!
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
Every annoying aspect of a particular relationship has begun to take its toll on you. How much tsuris can a Scorpio endure before the situation is deemed unsolvable and unsatisfying? Wait for the cosmic symbol before you make any final decision on a partnership or act on any snitty whim. You may realize that it is suddenly worth all the effort after all.
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
There is some very interesting office scuttle snaking its way across the floor. Some of it concerns you, Sagittarius. Whose ragged claws will pinch you on the ankle and try to drag you down? Fight back this week. Half efforts and general laziness are gathering dust in your in-box. Tackle it all with enthusiasm until it shifts to your out-box... or trash.
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
It is a sad commentary on the current state of Capricorns nowadays. They seem to lack a certain creative spark, a mental zing that sets them above every other knuckle scuffed lout. Plug in and shine this week. Your brain drain has stopped and is starting to percolate. They say genius is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration. Be outrageous and artistic now-no sweat!
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
Here you are waist deep in a slew of messy drudgery that never seems to go away. If it isn’t a mud creep through the house, it is a rampage of ugly relatives chowing down like locusts. Thank goodness this week gives you a new perspective to do what needs to get done at home. While you still may nurse your raw nerves at the end of the day, your effort pays off...eventually.
PISCES (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
Your greatest, most monumental ideas have been gathering dust. Now that the dust is blowing away, it is time to accelerate full speed ahead at all costs. Ignore the naysayers and doubting Toms. All they do is use valuable time that you will need to strategize and implement. Rumor has it that Pisces know a thing or two. Now it is time to prove it.
