The Sun enters Leo and heats up our otherwise cool existence. Our lives become vibrant and colorful and we feel as if we could charm the world with one big toothy grin. Show us your pearly whites and see how far the fluffy stuff carries you forward.

ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
This week unleashes your chains and frees you up to have tons of fun, fun, fun. Be all you can be musically, artistically, dramatically and just plain party-wise-ically. Aries go to great lengths to demonstrate their creativity. Can you smell the romance in the air? Oh wait a minute - it’s just something that has been left on the stove for too long.
TAURUS (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
A home is more than just four walls. Taureans need to feel mentally charged in order to make their personal living space feel like their own spiritual refuge. Thankfully you find ways to fulfill this purpose and bring the forces together to create a homey harmony. Share this joy with close friends; Why not invite a few close buddies over for a chat and chew?
GEMINI (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
Take a strong position and state your case. Your speech has verve and panache. Not only do you pack a diplomatic punch, you also easily grasp pithy ideas and high concepts. So don’t wait for the translation. Read between the lines and speak your mind. An impassioned cry from the vast void can be heard if a Gemini tweets it... or so a little birdie told me.
CANCER (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
Cancers discover gold among the dross this week. Even riskier investments pay off monetarily so keep an eye on the bottom line and know when to buy and sell. After all is said and done, you may be content to rest on your laurels. Don’t. Use your good fortune to push one step further up the food chain. Are your eyes too big for your stomach? Let’s hope so.
LEO (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
This week marks a time of increased charisma where everyone seeks to orbit around your gravitational pull. While it will be tempting to lie back and watch the revolution, try not to get lazy. You make excellent first impressions and can easily set new projects into motion. Leos pack more charm per square inch than usual. Hmm, can you go for a yard?
VIRGO (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
Feeling confined and pent up? There is nothing to stop you from clearing out your cosmic debris this week. Virgos should not hold back. Blow your box of secrets open and let them evaporate into the fresh air. Fear of fall out? Don’t be. Check out this added bonus; Those who don’t have your best interests at heart are thwarted in their vile and dastardly plans. Good!
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
The week heralds in a sociable time of friends, festivities and frolic. Your presence is demanded at every top event and your fan base increases. So why do you feel that you are working so hard? Well, Libras not only find themselves the leader of the pack, they also become organizers, pepsters and even clean up crew. Popularity has its price, it seems.
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
Make your assorted marks in the corporate sphere now. Scorpios pack a political wallop and generate enough great ideas to keep the attention focused solely on themselves around the office. Don’t be content to sing in the chorus. Outshine the competition by getting out front. Grab your pinstripped costume and put on a grand performance. Bravo!
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
Sagittarians expand their global view. You can no longer be content to come and go with the usual boring routine. Suddenly life holds more promise and excitement. Good. Expand your horizons any way you can - travel, study or even traipse through the internet. Grab a bit of the world and seek your passion. Or will it grab you? Only if you are lucky.
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
Prepare for a surge in your sexual allure. You won’t even have to try to upgrade your look. You can come as you are... and you will! Capricorns draw more bees to their hive than ever before and create a swarm. Don’t dissipate the vibes by flirting with any old honey. Try instead to set your sights on one particularly attractive stinger and create a new buzz.
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
Aquarians have a tendency to overdo and can feel physically drained and spiritually dreary now. Although it can feel like a down energy cycle, turn your attention from selfish pursuits to selfless relationships. Go the extra mile and you will find that the benefits far outweigh the costs. At any rate, others will feel better and that is what really counts. Yeah right.
PISCES (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
Rewards come to those Pisces who have put in the greatest effort at work. You now gain greater insight into the easiest and most successful course of action in any detailed work assignment. While the temptation will be to take the easy path, any true application and effort will pay extra dividends. Cash them through the summer when you can debrief on the beach.
