ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
Aries love to be in the spotlight. So why have you been so shy lately? What are you trying to hide? It’s now time to remove that fig leaf. The fates fixate on you and shine a penetrating spotlight on all that you are trying to avoid in your life. Good thing too; why not turn over a new leaf? The fig leaf forbidden. It’s time to risk exposure.
TAURUS (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
Taureans are plopped right into the epicenter of the social scene. Lucky you. You now have popularity plus and can make the most out of any friendship now. Plan some extraordinary events to celebrate the upcoming spring season and resolve to expand your social circle into a globe. You might also want to round out the crowd by adding a few squares to the mix.
GEMINI (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
No sooner do your plans for expansion take a sharp turn than you decide to apply yourself to buffing your corporate star. Geminis find that it’s a good time for major moves and shakes. Will you try to crush a boss in your turf battle? Be prepared for all possibilities - accept the punishment or commandeer the offensive. How offensive do you need to be...?
CANCER (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
On the one hand, this is a great time for you to escape and recharge your engines. On the other hand, you can stay close to home and just expand your base of operations. Cancers feel part of the greater community and should reach out and touch someone. All for one and one for all! Well maybe “all” except a couple of snotty you-know-whos....
LEO (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
Just when you were ready to dive head first into a heady hot tub of honeys, you might stop and consider possible heartache. Foolish Leo! There are no risks when there are no expectations. Enjoy the flirtations for what they are - fun, frothy and forgettable. How can it be anything else when all you are wearing are the smudges of your valentine chocolates?
VIRGO (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
Virgos are encouraged to line up their love matches and see how they stack up. One-to-one relationships are highlighted now. So either make the most out of current partnerships or pluck your soulmate from the bunch on the vine. Treat others the way you want to be treated and don’t allow yourself to be a doormat. (Unless that’s your thing....)
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
Libras often become bored with details, but now you cannot escape from them. They pile up on your desk and demand attention. Deal with them now so they won’t bog you down and cramp your style. And what about your health, diet and exercise? Get those gams in gear and promise yourself a new you with a bod that stops traffic. Do I see a pile up ... or a detour?
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
They say that genius is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration. And now, Scorpios can create an inspiring masterpiece ... primarily through sheer will, determination and sweat. Seek expressive and fun filled outlets to exercise your artistic muse. You’re in a creative riff that can adapt to any medium. Gee I wonder if nude body painting counts?
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
Use the week to concentrate on family and domestic issues. Sagittarians are now more practical, steady and a bit aloof which serves you well in any highly charged emotional encounter. The fact is that there are those who continue to fob their issues on you. Don’t let them. It’s a fresh new you. Go out and spoil some well deserving folks.
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
Got an opinion? Let’s hear it. Capricorns manage to sound balanced and knowledgeable in almost any subject for a change. Will you use your gift of gab for selfish or altruistic pursuits...? Let’s hope that the prospect of heightened karma entices you to use your good vibes for the benefit of your community rather than solely for personal gain. Alas, we can only hope.
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
This week makes otherwise generous Aquarians downright cheap. There is something about your finances (or lack thereof) that makes you very fiscally inclined now. Afraid of not having enough? Don’t worry. Plan as if you were preparing for early retirement. But forget the lottery. This can only be accomplished by buckling down and belting up. Oh goody.
PISCES (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
Pisces feel the yoke of responsibility tugging at their necks but don’t worry - you are also infused with optimism and confidence. Breathe free and soar, at least for the next few weeks or so. Get out there and meet as many new people as possible. This is the time for wonderful adventures, lifetime memories and even some new friends... if you can get off your couch.
