The Sun enters Libra this week and eventually squares Pluto. Expect your best laid plans to be tossed directly into the blender this week. Everything is up in the air. There is a time for plunging ahead, damn the torpedoes, and there is a time to throw ones arms up and surrender to the wooly forces. Choose the latter.

ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
Relationships chaff against your career plans. But don’t ignore one to the detriment of the other. Aries don’t feel entirely confident unless their public and private lives are fully integrated and in harmony. If you’re on the prowl, you may be drawn to especially needy souls now. Decide just how much you are prepared to give as the sweaty masses take.
TAURUS (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
The big picture can get lost among all the details now. Taureans may become so overburdened with diversionary tripe at work that they can’t seem to crawl out of the hole. The fates may pile it high but you do have possible options. Take a breather, wait until the dust settles and so will you. A little procrastination can work wonders! Do I smell a vacation?
GEMINI (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
Geminis are tempted to throw their hearts to the wind and see who scrapes it off the sidewalk. It is all hope and optimism! But the toad you kiss could transform into... a larger toad! So dispense your puckerings with discretion. You are tempted into extreme behavior and that makes it difficult to ascertain when enough is too much. Hmmm. Better enjoy it while you can.
CANCER (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
As much as Cancers may hope to find compromise in certain difficult relationships, it is best to remain practical and self possessed. You might be overly naive now and tempted to bring difficult issues to a head. Don’t risk probing into sensitive areas now. Instead, smile, say nothing and wait until the landscape changes. You can still probe without saying a word.
LEO (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
Leos are known for their grand and charming diplomacy. But this week, all bets are off. Verbal hell can break loose especially at work. You suddenly possess that rare talent of saying the exact wrong thing at the exact wrong time. Oops. My advice; keep your thoughts to yourself. As painful as that may be it’s can be more painful to collect unemployment... possibly.
VIRGO (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
Fun has a way of costing far more than expected now. You splurge on anything and anyone. Where did you hide your priorities this week? Virgos are not usually frivolous souls but now you have the wind in your sails and you and your dough are flying high. Avoid a crash landing by checking the bottom line before takeoff or at least packing a pillow for the landing.
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
Will you pick at your hornets nest of domestic issues? While it is tempting to throw caution to the wind and let the chips fall where they may, it is the subtle approach that succeeds. The cosmos offers optimism and oomph to turn over a new leaf in family affairs or create a more relaxing home environment. Will you decorate, renovate or detonate, Libra? Let’s guess.
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
Scorpios express themselves boldly. But if you expect to shine a karmic beacon into every dark dismal corner, expect blinding neon this week. Chill out. Quietly meditate and relax through yoga and stress management techniques. Contemplate your navel (or someone elses...) and save your dramatic pronouncements until next week.
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
Be generous with pals now. Money flows more easily and your fiscal confidence grows. But don’t spend it all in one place, Sagittarius. This flight of fancy comes with a First Class airfare. Social affairs can blow your budget and leave you hitching for the next ride. Enjoy your spark in the dark, but expect the fireworks to ignite even without your costly match.
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
Your acts draw everyone’s attention to you. Pick the spinach out of your teeth and upgrade your wardrobe. You are about to bite off more than you can professionally chew. The irksome tasks that you willingly accept now will not help your corporate ascent. In fact, they could weigh you down while the rest of the pack ambles ahead. My advice: Delegate, Capricorn!
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
Planning an escape may not be the escape you planned. Daydreams of blissful afternoons by the pool and naked minions feeding you peeled grapes can warm your cockles. But the way things may evolve, you could very well be cast as “peeler” rather than pasha. Be sure to pack a tweezer, Aquarius. Hey, whatever turns you on...
PISCES (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
Friends cast a disapproving eye on your latest heart throb, Pisces. They see you falling for a nightmare instead of a dream. Chalk it up to a mis-conception. Somewhere between your experiences and their perceptions is the real story. No one is totally wrong. You realize that as you sample your bag of assorted sweets. Are they sour balls or life savers?
