ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
The spotlight is on you, Aries. Opportunities abound as you make your best social moves now. Are you able to navigate your way to the epicenter of the power elite? Pour on your personality and unleash the god or goddess from within. And while you reach out to the movers and shakers, don’t forget to shake some of that divine magic on your personal valentine.
TAURUS (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
Gaze into your crystal ball and conjure the spirits this week. Then follow your muse to new amusements. Taureans are apt to feel on display and all their secrets are broadcast globally. Oh so what? Open yourself up to the possibilities and expose your soft underbelly. A hungry valentine is ready to devour you. Hmmm, so what are you - animal, vegetable or mineral?
GEMINI (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
The Love Boat may not leave the pier this week. Friends are not pleased with your choice of shipmate and may withdraw their support of some of your more ambitious launches. Are you able to please everybody? It doesn’t look like it. So be prepared to make your own plans and choices. Geminis better have alternative plans. The more alternative the better!
CANCER (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
The corporate road may become a bit rockier and partners may not be as sympathetic as you would like them to be towards your professional plight. Don't take a detour from love, Cancer. Next week all corporate signs point to "Go" and you can move full speed ahead in your career. For now, take the time to snuggle with you-know-who, who-knows-where.
LEO (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
You yearn to soar with the eagles but the cosmos conspires to shackle your aspirations to the ground. Leos may feel confined but take it from me - this too shall pass. Consider your various options and play out the scenarios during the quiet time of this week. Make up for it with a vengeance next week, valentino. There will be no stopping you.
VIRGO (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
Virgos can mix a powerfully sexy cocktail that will prove to be intoxicating. Good timing, or so it seems. You can take an crazy and creative idea to the limit in any romantic or fun enterprise and charm even the most uncharmable lout. But there is the risk of overdoing it in any jolly pastime. How intoxicated go you really need to be? Oh let’s just find out this week!
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
Wandering Libras may find that escape is preferable to staying at home and dealing with partnership issues. That is because some social commitments can take the juice out of your battery. But leaving is not an option. The chickens come home to roost in relationships. Get ready to cook, valentine. Pour the oil and turn up the heat. It’s starting to smell good around here.
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
Scorpios are tempted to say that one extra comment that can change the course of history… at least your personal history. Is it worth the momentary buzz? Why not use this week to smooth over your rough edges either by pouring your energy into different outlets - exercise at the gym or, perhaps, rubbing briskly against some special valentine?
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
Fun may not be all that that it is cracked up to be. Sagittarians are tempted to compromise their values to gain what they think is something quite rare and valuable. It is not what you think, lover. The key to success is to not to compromise now. Stick to your ideals. The fates are dealing from the bottom of the deck. You can’t win by gambling on a whim.
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
Capricorns feel on top of the world. New ideas run wild and you are aching to spread the word. But before you know it, your glistening entrance is marred by some mouthy crumb bum in the front row. Your bubble of invincibility is popped, albeit temporarily. Don’t let stress veer you off course. Take all knocks in stride. Next week you are rocking back with a vengeance.
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
Aquarians may think that they know all the secret moves of love, but you may find that you still have quite a bit to learn. Polish your technique this Valentines week and listen to your inner soul whisper its instructions. Potential lovers crawl out of the woodwork. Did I say “crawl”? Oh my! You really better work on your technique!
PISCES (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
All that glitters is not gold but this week you think otherwise. Pisces are set loose on a “meet market” shopping spree as friends watch the show. Will you break a few hearts in the process? Will compadres be there to pick up your loose change? The lesson to be learned this week is that money cannot buy love ... but you can have a really good time while you decide.
