ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
If you ever had an excuse to get down to work this is the time to do so. Aries are ambitious and can now clear off their desks and free themselves up for some real wheeling and dealing. A little effort has some considerable and dramatic payoff. Aim carefully lest you upset a careful balance. You are a shooting star but watch were you point that thing.
TAURUS (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
Put a bit of zip in your doodah. What is it about Taureans that makes them so full of fun and so giddy right now? You seem to be unable to concentrate on anything serious or on highly detailed work because your imagination and sense of adventure crowds the scene. Embrace the inevitable. Tap a few kegs along with a few pals and dance to a different drummer.
GEMINI (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
Make you home picture perfect - you will spend loads of time there this week. Geminis plan some wonderful get togethers and become a major presence in any beehive of activity. If you have a long domestic agenda, now is the time to get the necessary work done without a taxing effort. Good thing too - you don’t want to create an unmanageable deficit. Ahem!
CANCER (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
If you have something to say, say it this week. Cancers express themselves with style and panache and get what they want without being pushy and obnoxious. What a nice change of pace! Go for the gold standard and don’t settle for the silver. While you are at top form, do a bit of press for a good cause. That might mean press as much flesh as possible.
LEO (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
Money is on the top of your list. This is the time to make as much of it as you can and enjoy it to the fullest. But what is it that you really want? Love? Contentment? Self actualization? Leos may just find that there is something that money simply can’t buy.... but thank goodness they get over it! Champagne, truffles and a pack of confetti anyone??
VIRGO (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
There is nothing quite so charming and engaging as a Virgo this week. You have ample opportunity to meet and greet. Plus, if you muster a bit of effort, you put new projects in place for guaranteed long term payoff. Life seems pretty darn good ... even excessively good. Will the glare of your pearlies entice, entertain or repel? Check for spinach to be sure.
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
There are those who have taken great delight in stabbing you in the back whenever they darned pleased. Sometimes you didn’t realize it until the damage was done. Now a light goes on and you finally figure out who they are and what they are up to. Revenge is a dish best eaten cold, Libra. Enjoy your dinner and go for your just desserts.
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
Surround yourself with pals and a few new acquaintances. You are especially sociable and seem to attract a delicious array of avid followers. Some of the folks you meet now are so impressed that they just can’t get enough of you and hang on your every word. Scorpios are in their element. Is that in deep water, down to earth, full of hot air or on fire?
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
If professional goals have seemed unattainable and difficult, thank your stars for the opportunities presented this week. Instead of struggling in the dark, suddenly it all becomes clear. Implement all strategies in the right priority. Sagittarians are finally able to set things in motions that have considerable payoff. Don’t spend it all in one place, tempting as it might be.
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
Capricorns find that this is a good time to take stock of where they are and where they are going. Are you where you want to be in this life? Are you itching for more? Scratch that itch with anything that helps expand your horizons. There is nothing like new stimuli to move some old stasis. Travel, study or mingle with some new interesting cohorts. See what you can concoct.
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
Love is in the air. Okay maybe it really isn’t love but that doesn’t matter when the lights are low and so are you. Aquarians seem to ooze that certain special sauce - a mixture of piquant charm, spicy wit and juicy charisma. Hurry and make your best moves while you are so delicious. By tomorrow you may revert back to just another overcooked dish.
PISCES (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
This is no time to be alone and whether you decide to surround yourself with platonic or passionate company is entirely up to you. Whoever you choose will transform you in unimaginable ways and on very meaningful levels. Pisces are often considered to be incorrigible romantics and now the cosmos demands that you become a part of a pair. Hey nice pair.
