ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
As hard and as carefully you work to advance on the job, there is no predicting where your efforts will take you now, Aries. That is because the fates are plotting to deliver you into some other parallel corporate universe. Expect the unexpected and maneuver any big change with care and aplomb. You may advance beyond your wildest dreams .. or not so wild!
TAURUS (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
Any end of summer travel will have its unexpected excitement. You might discover the thrills and chills of faraway romance or a totally relaxing escape or a frizzy lalapalooza dance party. It is all up to you, Taurus, and the places you choose to visit. But should you choose to party at a nudist colony, you might want to pack extra sunscreen.
GEMINI (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
If you find that you are pulled in two directions now, don’t panic, Gemini. There is a seductive someone who vies for your attention and wants you all to themselves. But meanwhile you have obligations at home or with relatives. There is not enough time for everyone. Try to combine the two energies by making your home a sexy love nest for whoever flies in.
CANCER (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
Cancers may need to be more forthcoming in some of their relationships. Honesty is the best policy now and you can be diplomatic enough to say what you need to say and spare anyone’s hurt feelings. So express yourself and get the relationship that you deserve and need. You will be in great shape for the fall and can light up the holiday season with your special someone.
LEO (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
Health is wealth. Or so they say, Leo. This month you are advised to attend to any ache and pain, whether physical, emotional or spiritual. Expand your knowledge, seek advice and learn an new thing or two. You can even make a little money through your efforts. By the fall you will be stronger and invincible. Put in the oomph and trioomph.
VIRGO (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
Virgos are not only the center of attention now, they are also the life of the party. So don’t sit at home and swipe right and left. Get out and see who is who and what is what. Create a few big events that get you noticed. Before you know it you will not only become a superstar, you will also pull other heavenly bodies into your orbit. This is no time for gravity!
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
You are living in a swirl of secrets and behind the scenes maneuvering, Libra. In fact, you may not even be aware of all of the goings on going on around you. But that is okay. You can relax knowing that if you let things evolve as they will, everything will turn out well for you. Trust in the spirits and let karma rule the day. Donate or do some charity work just in case.
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
Friends may need and ask you for monetary help now. Are you open to giving them a financial helping hand? If so, give it as a gift and expect nothing in return. If not, explain why compassionately. For those Scorpios who need to expand their social circle, use this time to get into new clubs, activities or associations. The more the merrier.... unless they ask for money.
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
Any dream deferred needs to be dusted off and launched now, Sagittarius. If you have ever wanted to travel, write, learn to dance or even fly, take some time to explore all of your options. You have the confidence and the curiosity to expand your world into a galaxy. The sky is the limit. So there is no glass ceiling on which to bump your head.
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
Achieve fame and fortune this August as your long suppressed ideas are suddenly on the top of your to do list. Capricorns can better plan for future success and are able to ask for help from powerful and influential people. So don’t relax and procrastinate. Time is short. Start getting your projects on track and see what success the future an bring.
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
Aquarians may have a secret admirer who, once discovered, will sweep you off your feet. Be prepared to be surprised. For those who are currently in a relationship, use this time to heat things up between the two of you. Perhaps some leaving some saucy love notes on the pillow will ramp up the sexy temperature. Whatever gets your blood pumping!
PISCES (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
Will you accept the advice of friends when it comes to a certain relationship? Pisces think they know everything there is to know about someone, but those who care about you may have other ideas. Keep yourself open to discussion, Pisces, and see if there is something a pal can do to help improve your life. They seem to care and have your best interests at heart.
