ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
If you have been feeling out of sync with the group dynamic, this is the time to get back into the social swim. Not only are you welcomed back with open arms, you are also everyone’s favorite.... even among some who you dislike. We can’t always get the cheerleaders we want but we can use them to get to the next big important step. How big is now up to you Aries.
TAURUS (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
Your past, ill conceived opinions might have created quite a few potholes on your corporate highway. But now you can fill in the spaces with meaningful, substantive and strategic ideas. Taureans sense that they have been feeling their way in the dark without a clear direction and without a proper guide. Now, keep feeling. You never know who you will touch.
GEMINI (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
There is no rest for the weary, at least it will seem that way this week. The urge will be to kick back but don’t be lazy now Gemini. Activity has its rewards. Reach out to far flung friends, travel and even expand your knowledge base. Make your mark on the world in no uncertain terms. And make it more than a grimy oil slick on the cosmic superhighway.
CANCER (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
All of your inept attempts at meaningful connection seem to have a sense of grace after all. Cancers are ready and raring for love. Find ways to increase the intimacy. For those on the prowl, put on your thinking cap to locate the best meet markets and the best come-on lines. Your gift of gab can lead you to all sorts of happy mischief. And that is certainly the plan!
LEO (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
Just when you thought that certain relationships weren’t worth their salt, things change in a meaningful way. Leos can make the most of any partnership. Some may surprise you and transform your life. If you are in the market for someone new, this is a good time to make yourself available. Pick and choose the best from the litter. But stay away from pure trash.
VIRGO (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
Beneficial changes can be made on the job. Some possibilities occur even without any great effort on your part. You have several choices but left too long, some of these choices may evaporate. Virgos can go with the flow, allowing themselves to be treated like a piece of styrofoam bobbing along the turgid waters. But this time, pack a paddle.
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
Let out a cheer, be footloose and be sure to have fun. Libras find themselves in the center of all the action and looove it. Strut your stuff and show the crowd what you can do - beautifully! Just how over the top will you be? Some things you can chalk up to the foibles of youth and some things have absolutely no excuse. Oh thank goodness!
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
Turn your attention to your domestic agenda now. Not only can you imagine some incredible home improvements, you find ways to totally transform your sense of home. A change of residence is possible with an eye to making your situation more secure and less prone to the vagaries of others. Scorpios deserve a strong castle complete with moat. Hey, nice turret.
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
Sagittarians might have had trouble reining in their exciting but explosive ideas. Now your communication hits home in a compelling, charming, disarming and bold manner. You attract an eager audience for even any half baked idea. Why not keep it in the oven a little longer and let it rise to the occasion? You never know who will grab a slice and serve it to others.
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
Capricorns can finally manage to wrest control of their finances. And not a moment too soon. You have squandered too many resources and suffered too many losses due to unmanageable risks. Take stock. The thing is, are you able to prioritize what is most important and what is merely accessory? Did I say “what”? I meant “who”.
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
Everyone knows that you have to till the soil before you can plant the seeds. And even Aquarians sense (correctly) that it is high time to start anew as the ground shifts, churns and turns. What was hidden is now revealed. What needs to be buried can be stowed and forgotten. But don’t forget, after all the dirt has been dished you must plant the seeds so they can sprout.
PISCES (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
Life has served you more cosmic spit balls than soft balls recently. Chalk it up to bad guesswork on your part. But now you will bounce back higher than ever. You learn from your mistakes, improve your sense of direction and gain the intuitive oomph to make the right guess at the right time. Go with your gut, Pisces, but avoid meals with extra spice.
