Thoughts run amok as September gets underway. Mercury forms a Grand Cross with retro Pluto and Uranus. Sparkling ideas can spark a fire so be careful when you strike up a conversation. Is it hot in here or is it you? Ouch!

ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
Even though you have many opinions about a certain relationship, you know better than to voice them now. Aries are advised to wait and see what happens before they bleat their displeasure. Who knows what can then happen? Things may evolve to a state where you can sit back and be quiet. Maybe. Maybe not. But you have nothing to lose by listening ... for now.
TAURUS (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
Work is not a quiet haven but that is okay. Taureans can achieve nirvana if they can get out from the center of any office politics. Consider taking a well earned vacation. Or taking on a project where you can work on your own. If you are tossed into the storm, try to stay on the sidelines or pretend you have a conference call in your office.
GEMINI (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
Geminis are burning with great ideas, some of which will prove to be exciting and dramatic. So don’t hold yourself back from doing anything creative. Of course, too much time spent on imaginative antics could upset your staid professional image. It is hard to look seriously ambitious wearing ear clamps and a speedo. But if anyone can pull it off, you can.
CANCER (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
You make a startling entrance into any family reunion or gathering. Is it your style? Is it your flair? This could change people’s perceptions of you for years to come. So if you are meeting and greeting, be sure to check yourself in the mirror first to see if you really are who you think you are. If you like who you see, go with it. If you need a revamp, now is the time, Cancer.
LEO (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
Leos may not be able to contain themselves and that is because they are brimming with energy filled ideas. If you only had an entourage to help you get things done! But you don’t. What you need to do is find ways to accomplish a lot with very few resources. Once you get the ball rolling, others will want to get in on your act. Start rolling.
VIRGO (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
Can money buy you love? Maybe not, but it will be a tempting course of action for you now. Virgos are in love with love and enjoy lavishing partners with assorted trinkets. I hope you get what you think you are paying for once the champagne runs dry. Build your dreams on solid rock and not on shifting sand. Unless you like collecting shells....
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
It is possible to charm others to your way of thinking. But what will you do with all of your ardent admirers, some of whom are beginning to annoy you. Libras need to be very discerning before they slather on their personal oil. Quality, not quantity is the secret to your personal success now. And don’t slip on your own slippery overflow.
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
If you listen very carefully, you will hear something secretive and juicy and totally surprising. But what will you do with this fascinating information? Rather than pass it on, let it sit and mull for a while. Things are still in transition and can change very quickly. Scorpios are respected for their accuracy and acumen. Strength is in silence now. Use it later.
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
Even a mild flirtatious and friendly come-on gets totally out of control as friends might misinterpret your intent. Confusion reigns! Sagittarians often make an unintentional ruckus with their words but now it takes on a life of its own. Expect a platonic melee that upends your romantic plans. One day you will sit back and laugh at all of this. For now, have a beer.
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
Your ambitious professional plans may come under greater scrutiny as the week progresses. But that is not a bad thing, Capricorn. In fact, you probably need a reality check to see if where you are going is where you want to go. Make an excuse to take a work break to relax and recharge at home. There are things (or folks) there that (or who) need your attention.
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
Pending legal issues can get a little out of control so see if you can rest your case quietly, without all the demands and theatrics. Compromise is good. Then, travel and see the world. Or travel and see the neighborhood. The most important thing is to expand your horizon so you can see love and life in a new light. Make it a glow and not a strobe, Aquarius.
PISCES (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
Words of love and lust can take you to new heights of passion. You become immersed in the thrills, the spills and the chills of a certain lusty relationship. Whew! Is that what you really want? If so, jump right in. If you are seeking something more sedate now, be aware that what you say can lead to mischief. Maybe you can use your lips for something other than banter....
