ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
Things bubble up behind the scenes at work and Aries may not know where the backstabbers will make their mark. So when in doubt, let events quietly unfurl and take their course, Try to step out of the way wherever possible. Even better, try to take some time off and avoid the whole drama-fest. You can return stronger, relatively unscathed... and ready to fight.
TAURUS (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
You may want to run with the herd, Taurean Bull, but you may have more fun on your own. Fun and friends may not be a great combination now. You may not understand them and they certainly will not understand you. That is because you may not know your limits and go to the extreme in anything frivolous, fancy and feckless. And why is this is a bad thing?
GEMINI (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
Geminis feel the need to relax close to home. Maybe you want to cocoon or maybe you prefer to toss a few intimate dinner parties. Whatever gives you pleasure is the exact right thing to do. But while you while away the time in bed, don’t defer any important work projects. Or else you may wind up spending more time at home than you would prefer...
CANCER (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
You think that you are very witty but be careful of any mirthful comments now. Not only could you be misunderstood but others stand to gain an advantage over you because of it. Don’t feed the fire with any more fodder, Cancer. Instead, be coy and mysterious. The quieter you are, the more impactful (and controllable) your words will be once unleashed....
LEO (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
Money flows like water this March and, just like water, it can evaporate quickly. That is why you should be cheap errr... extra thrifty ... now, especially in matters of the heart. Lovers may demand expensive trinkets to keep their flame hot but try to balance your lust with your loot. Proud Lions will live to love another day if they invest rather than squander.
VIRGO (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
Do you feel the pinch of relationships? Is it hard to commit to just one lovely person? These questions will roll in your head and you will be tempted to make a big move because of it. But don’t. There are too many things that seem to be important that are not and you can blow these things out of proportion. Wait and enjoy the relative calm.
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
There is so much going on in the background that you will find it difficult to keep secrets secret. So what? Sometimes releasing long held secrets can be liberating, Libra. And that might be especially true in your workplace. But if you have any criticisms to spill, do it diplomatically and carefully. You don’t want your blue tongue to get you a pink slip.
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
Scorpios may have creative blockage now. As much as you would want to express yourself and demonstrate your capabilities to the world, you may be held back by lack of confidence or ideas. No matter. These things take time and practice. Friends may even help you out in this area. But they are such stage hogs you may want to wait and do it on your own.
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
Don’t take on too many projects in your career. You will become bogged down and may need to cut corners to get things out by deadline. And partners may not be so understanding of all of your late nights at the office. Can you escape on vacation? If not try to get into mellow pastimes like yoga or meditation until the craziness blows over.... like this summer....
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
Capricorns are anxious to get away and expand their horizons. You have so many great ideas it is difficult to limit your vision. So travel may be more trouble than its worth at this time because you overbook and try to do too much in too short a time. Rather than over-extend, try to pare back and do things slowly, sparingly and austerely. Yeah right.
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
Aquarians are hot to trot and set their personal lifestage on fire. You suddenly find that your sex life gets a life of its own. There are many admirers banging at your door. Are you able to balance all of your many amours? Hmmm maybe not. So lets be practical and try to manage your choices carefully. Quality, not quantity is the ultimate goal. Or is it?
PISCES (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
First impressions are lasting impressions, Pisces. That is why you need to carefully consider each and every public meeting to see if it is really to your benefit. You possess great reserves of energy and need to figure out how to best channel every spark so it lights the right fire. When in doubt, spend you time in quiet tete a tetes with those you know well. Very well.
