The Sun enters affable, honest Sagittarius this week. Our hopes and aspirations know no bounds even if a few of the niceties fall through the cracks. So while we may not be the smoothest of operators now, we still know how to maneuver around obstacles.

ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
Even if you are no longer a student, you can still learn a new thing or two this week. Your curiosity is piqued and you yearn to expand your knowledge. Good. Don’t be lazy, Aries. Get off your duff and scratch your itchy hooves through school or travel. You can snare a foreign comrade in this crazy journey. Two travel as cheaply as one if they bunk together.
TAURUS (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
Taureans can charm the pants off just about anyone now. You simmer in your sexuality so try to blow a few fuses as you increase your voltage. Choose your conquests wisely; you may not know when enough is enough and it would be a shame to waste time on certain liaisons who are energy guzzlers. Then again, it could be rather fun....
GEMINI (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
Feel free to discuss any nit picky issues with partners now. But be warned; When Geminis become too comfortable in relationships, they may begin to take partners for granted.. As charming as you think you are, remember to be especially caring and thoughtful now. If not, ask for forgiveness with buckets of champagne and crates of attention.
CANCER (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
It’s a time of great accomplishment in your day to day job. Cancers should make the best use of this beneficent energy by unleashing new ideas, beginning prized projects and planning your best moves at least three moves ahead. Also use this time to revamp your diet and exercise regime. It is never too early to prepare for festive nude holiday celebrations.
LEO (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
Unleash your creative muse. Paint, dance, write or create something beautiful. If you’re no Picasso, then put your juices to work planning a delightful party or five. It is a time for romance so add a dash of fun into an otherwise monastic life. Leos needn’t stay home nursing their memories. Get out there and flip your tail around “mane” street, Lion.
VIRGO (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
Virgos often decorate their homes in early functional office style. This week demands a warmer, charming and comfortable home decor. So trade in your modern steel highback chair for something a bit more cushy and inviting. When you begin to feel cuddly, who knows who you can lure into your web to snuggle with you. How fly is that?
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
If you have something ... anything ... meaningful to say, say it with conviction this week. Libras can sugarcoat any harsh comments and be diplomatic with almost anyone. Create connections and rebuild any frayed ties. If you give even the most beastly folks a chance to redeem themselves, you may even find something genuinely nice about them. And then again....
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
They say you should never count your chickens before they’re hatched and yet you can now hatch a very clever investment strategy. Even secretive strategists offer you tantalizing tidbits of fiscal information. Make good use of every snippet of advice, do your homework and carefully invest your dough. Gather those nest eggs and sit on them for a while, Scorpio.
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
This week highlights your glowing personality. People of influence gather around you and anxiously wait for your ideas. Use this hot intensity for niceness instead of nastiness. The temptation may be to settle an old score but wise Sagittarians understand that revenge is one of the few dishes that is best eaten cold.... along with potato salad.
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
Think beyond your own petty concerns this week. The universe demands a more humanitarian effort from you. So rather than continue to view life from the sidelines, volunteer, donate and get involved in any worthy cause. What a change of pace for you! And yet, smart Capricorns also realize that the more they give, the more they get. No not in aggravation!
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
Compadres are mere putty in your hands this week. Folks gravitate to you as you command the group dynamic. This is fine as long as you don’t let the party turn into a great performance. There is a time for the conquering diva and a time for democratic camaraderie. Choose the latter, Aquarius. Life moves on and the blush will soon be off your particular rose.
PISCES (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
Pisces are not ones to kow tow to the rich and powerful. It almost seems beneath them. But if you were to think of it as “greasing the wheels” to your eventual success, it may be a bit more palatable. And it will be so easy for you to do now. Really what is the harm in oiling a few large cogs? It is fine as long as you don’t do it with your tongue.
