ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
While most of your energy will be spent trying to navigate your professional path, you will also need to carve out some time for friends and just hang loose. Aries who don’t spread their jolliness around others will find that they will eventually be left out of the social loop. So keep your eye on the corporate prize but also enlist some helping hands to give you a push up.
TAURUS (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
Travel plans may go awry but that doesn’t mean that you should sit at home and watch the walls. Taureans need to spice up their life. Get out of your routine and comfort zone. Surprises may shock you but you find that as you become more adventurous, you also germinate some great ideas to help you advance in the new year. Make your resolutions now!
GEMINI (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
Geminis may get their love signals crossed .. to some hilarious results. Will you meet an enticing stranger who captures your heart? Mean what you say and say what you mean, Be sure that your intentions are clearly understood. Of course sometimes a few mixed messages and foggy conclusions can lead to passionate love. But sometimes it can catch you in your underwear.
CANCER (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
Life will be one big hug for the next few weeks, Cancer. So spread your good cheer around and reach out to those with whom you can make a strong connection. Review certain relationships. What do partners really want and expect from you? You may not be totally listening to them now. But it may not matter as long as your actions speak louder than your words.
LEO (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
Stop pushing things out into the future. Time is a wasting, Leo. Resolve to handle any project that has been gathering dust on your desk. You will find that if you ask nicely for a helping hand, one will be offered to you. But don’t expect others to do all of the work for you. Lazy Lions who yearn to doze in the sun will not rest for long. The clean-up will be messy.
VIRGO (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
All of the effort that you have put into your exercise and health regime over the past few weeks are paying off. You feel trim, fit and fabulous, Virgo. And that means that you shouldn’t hide from the adoring crowd. Get your beautiful self out into the party circuit and see who you can turn on. The new year is young and exciting and so are the partygoers.
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
Any home related project may have its delays and detours but that doesn’t mean that you should postpone your home improvement plans. Libras are extraordinary hosts. So perhaps instead of working on the house, work on the crowd instead. Invite some good friends over for a evening of fun and food. Who knows? Maybe one of them will be a contractor.
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
Scorpios are known for their eloquence and sharp insights. but now your best observations may be slightly off the mark. What you say could be misunderstood. But that is okay - you will find a charming way of overcoming any faux pas... and that will make you even more endearing to some folks. Will you charm the pants off someone special? Let’s see.
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
Even your most careful plans to make more money could go awry because you are not paying close enough attention to the details. Instead of trying to beat the odds, why not just try to enjoy life a little more. Reach out to those who you might have lost contact and try to connect to new acquaintances. before you know it you are on the top of the heap. Which heap, Sagittarius?
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
It is a new year and a new you, Capricorn. Will you plan to do something totally different or even a bit risky? Will you get a totally new “look” that turns heads? Anything you do could have some surprising results that could lead you onto an entirely new course. Take a calculated chance and see where the fates lead you... and who will follow you.
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
You attract a crowd, even if you don’t intend to do so. Aquarians are not only oozing charm, they also seem to know just what to do to meet, greet and sweep others off their feet. But there is a bit of mystery swirling in the background. Will the gossip mill turn an envious eye in your direction? Forget about the bad actors and keep doing what you are doing.
PISCES (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
Friends may become more trouble than they are worth now. But that doesn’t mean that you should cut off ties with anyone over a silly misunderstanding. Be extra patient now, Pisces. and spend your time cultivating new acquaintances, joining new groups and spreading yourself thin in new circles. Soon it will all come together and your social circle will form a globe.
