ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
Anything you say could be misinterpreted now, Aries, and cause some misunderstandings with friends. So if you have a certain opinion or idea, let it float around in your mind for the time being instead of sharing it. Who knows? A very careful consideration and a waiting period may be the way to sharpen your eventual message.
TAURUS (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
Your value system could be in for a deep re-evaluation now, Taurus. But your shifting preferences could shift again in a few weeks. So before you embark on a certain direction, sit back and think about it a little longer. What looks like a sure fire way to make money may not be the best way. All that glitters is not gold. And in this case, it could be styrofoam.
GEMINI (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
First impressions can be lasting impressions, Gemini. So if you find yourself in the center of a crowd, take the responsibility of all this attention seriously. Your voice carries a global impact which can lead you to places you might prefer not to go at this time. So be a bit of a wallflower, if you can. Plan your eventual entrance with care so you wow them later.
CANCER (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
If you are holding some wild sexy secrets, be prepared to accidentally spill them in what might be an inappropriate time. Uh oh, Cancer. But this is not a malicious act and hopefully others are quick to forgive. But to spare you these uncomfortable moments, I suggest that you refrain from gossip and idle chit chat ... at least temporarily.
LEO (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
Plans with friends may go astray. They forget or you forget or all of you wind up in various different places looking for each other. So expect invitations to get lost and phone calls missed, Leo. Romance too, may hit an unanticipated snag because of miscommunication. Lessons learned. It will all be a part of the mysterious cosmic fun eventually...
VIRGO (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
Virgos may be working doubly hard over the next few weeks as certain tasks require re-dos. You are usually vary careful and efficient but the fates seem to mix up the directions, instructions and even the supplies. Why ask why? Try to maintain your calmness and composure and plow ahead. These mix-ups may even prove to be educational. We hope.
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
If you are planning a party, Libra, make sure that everyone knows all of the details ... and remind them a few times. Invitations to fun events may have a way of going astray. In fact any excursion local or otherwise can wind up as a wild goose chase. So while travel in general seems to go a little off track, remember that it can become a great adventure!
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
Honesty is the best policy when it comes to close relationships, Scorpio. But now it might be good to add a dollop of sugar and diplomacy since your message may get muddled or mis-communicated. Something nice and frothy can be a happy memory. While there will be time in the near future to tell it like it is, for now tell it like it can be.
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
Interactions with neighbors could go well, hit a snag or be confused, depending on how carefully you craft your message. Sagittarians often talk without thinking. But now, it is best to first think very carefully and then, if things can wait, say nothing. You may also find that local events can get mixed up. Maybe it’s time for a vacation?
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
Capricorns learn a few financial lessons now. One is that you always carefully read the fine print before you invest or buy. The other is that you need to do more research from different sources and listen to all reputable advice before you act. You work too hard for your money to waste it on speculation. The cosmos is asking you to pay greater attention.
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
Aquarians think of all sorts of creative activities and want to find a group to join in. That is great. But sometimes your plans are not described in a way that others can envision. So anything that sparks your imagination should be presented in concrete and understandable bits of clear description. Hard to do, I know, but I also know you can do it.
PISCES (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
Family issues need to be cleared but there is so much miscommunication and static that sometimes your opinions get lost in the clouds. The best advice for Pisces at this time is to let more things pass and maintain a mellow and somewhat distant presence. Watch, listen and wait for the right time to act. It will come soon but not right now.
