ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
The week adds quite a bit of good fortune to an already lucky and carefree Aries. Take advantage of your luck and pluck to move things your way. Expand your outlook and tap into anything that inspires your creativity. Maybe you can plan a great party? Just make sure that you don’t waste energy on any of the seven deadly sins .... except perhaps lust and gluttony.
TAURUS (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
The time to build bridges with family members is right now. Mellow tones ring in even the nastiest of situations. Be yourself, Taurus, and don’t take “no” for an answer. Today it is yes, yes, yes. While you are so agreeable, consider enhancing your home surroundings by redecorating or moving stuff around. Say a definite “yes” to tossing out that beer barrel side table.
GEMINI (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
Geminis seem to know exactly what to say this week. Speak your mind and maneuver around the fallout. You are tempted to blurt out the most inappropriate (yet heartfelt) things now. Thankfully even your cruelest comments become delicious bon mots ... most of the time. Have you ever thought of politics? Forgetaboutit; you’re just too honest!
CANCER (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
You are more fiscally astute this week. Cancers recognize the value of a dollar and how difficult it is to accumulate. If you can keep a careful eye on the retirement prize, try to push your monetary cause one step further. While you are tempted to purchase a decorative object or two, don’t be surprised if you decide to fritter some funds on a certain “treasure” by the bar.
LEO (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
You are even more appealing than usual. So go and meet and greet, Leo. You impress everyone you meet. Interviews go well and you seem to know what you are talking about. Set the agenda by doing everything new - new projects, trying new things and creating a new image. Who knows? For the first time in your life you may even get a good haircut. So nuh?
VIRGO (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
Virgos are pleasantly surprised at the extent and power of their good vibes. You can easily overcome dastardly evil plans of hidden enemies, at least in the short term. There is a healing taking place within you. Intuition is on target so do good things for deserving people and build up the good karma. You get more than you give and that is a nice change of pace!
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
Libras seem to be more in tune with group dynamics. Rather than coolly fade into the background they emerge, bold and beautiful, into the forefront. Gather your good buddys together and plot a revolution. If you choose, bring warring factions to the peace table and strike a happy compromise. If not, create your own oligarchy and enjoy it with a select worthy few. Ahem.
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
If your corporate political skill needs a bit of brushing up, try try again. Scorpios make some inroads in otherwise treacherous shark waters with their charming and charismatic style. You might even overcome entrenched workplace enemies if you can manage to spin a little sugar into your honest truth. Or you can hit them when they are not looking and run away.
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
Sagittarians peer longingly at the far horizons. Expand your vision and scratch your already itchy travelling feet. Think of a great global project and become a pioneer. You have the tender touch and can make a warm and compelling impression on those who you do not know well and who may differ. Say the word and I will nominate you for diplomat to the United Nations.
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
What is it that makes all Capricorns so loveable and attractive now? You are not only especially charming, you become the epitome of sexy and have a choice of an array of admirers. Enjoy it while you can and don’t waste time. This magic will dissipate quickly and before you know it you go from a fresh cupcake to day old bread. But at least you’ll have all your dough...
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
Aquarians love being in a relationship. So why not find the perfect saucer for your cup this week? One on ones go smoothly and harmoniously if you remember all those little things that make your significant other significantly happy. If you are in the market, you may just find your treasure among the trash. (Of course, you may prefer trash...) but you have to seek to find.
PISCES (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
Although it may be cold comfort to Pisces looking for adventure, this week makes the day to day job less dreary and onerous. If the job doesn’t get your juices going try a brisk workout that will increase the chances of end-of-summer fun. Exercise now and enjoy the rewards. Imagine them watching you walk the gang plank when you look so ship shape!
