ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
Even if you can’t connect on a spiritual or emotional level to others at this time, at least you can connect in a physical way. Show your true colors, Aries and dive into new liaisons to make your own bold opportunities. You make the right moves at the right time to make powerful connections that take you far. Get going before this energy wanes and you poop out.
TAURUS (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
This is a great week to tell partners and other loved ones how you really feel. (And try it with your hands.) Don’t stay in the routine and familiar though. You are goaded to expand your borders and manifest your destiny with a willing partner. Taureans can be charmers when they really want to be. The real question is: Do you really want to be?
GEMINI (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
This week delivers a generally better work environment. It will seem that others compete for your affection and will go the extra step to help you out and lighten your load. Ask and you will receive, Gemini. But don’t sit back and just give orders. Pitch in to help too. You can chug a lug the milk of human kindness that washes over you this week .... before it curdles.
CANCER (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
Nutritionists say that we really need to eat more fruit. Well how about a maraschino cherry... preferably soaking in a cocktail? The fates manage to rev up your social life while giving you more energy to do everything you want to do. Life is too short Cancer and “do-goodism” has its limitations. Take a little extra party zetz for yourself and share with a certain someone.
LEO (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
Bring on the extended family, Leo! This week not only brings improvement in any strained or distant relations, it also provides any excuse to invite a bevy of them over for a happy-ish reunion. Okay, you don’t have to go that far. How about a gathering of compadres for an intimate soiree instead? Send the family a nice gift basket and leave it at that.
VIRGO (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
Virgos wax poetic and charm even the biggest kvetchers this week. But don’t waste it on personal vanity. Your temporary eloquence can best be used to forward any pressing social issue that requires diplomacy and deftness. In fact this can be the time for a profitable change of direction that might lead to more control and power. Or maybe you are into delegating...?
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
You have the potential to wheel and deal and make lots of money this week to grease financial instruments. Libras might be short of funds and tight fisted at times but can now find that loosening their grip and taking a calculated risk can pay off in enormous ways. At least you will find ways of enjoying even meager allotments. How much is a lot anyway?
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
Scorpios can turn it up to high gloss and charm just about anyone now. Any half-baked scheme rises in value and any lost soul in your entourage comes back to haunt you. The temptation is to lie back and wait for it to come to you but that would be a mistake. The right actions now plant the seeds for major gains later this season. So say it and do it now.
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
Sagittarians expand their realm and open up a bit more around others. You have some good ideas that will gain in acceptance and put you in the power seat. Secret guardian angels not only cover your back, they also give you a certain panache that makes even your most horrible and nasty traits seem delightful. However, I wouldn’t push my luck if I were you.
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
Compadres come to the rescue this week and not a moment too soon. Capricorns are beginning to feel like rats on a treadmill where even their best efforts go unnoticed. Thankfully you still have a cheering section somewhere in the world. Kick up, fan out and get into all sorts of after work mischief. Who knows where it could lead? A major career move...?
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
Enlist the help of powerful colleagues to get you what you want and where you need to be professionally. Aquarians increase their diplomatic skills with a dash of intrigue and corporate know how, at least for now. The trick is to turn these temporary favors into real gains. Think big, long term, happy thoughts. Revenge is a dish best eaten cold ... and years later.
PISCES (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
If life is getting you down, if responsibilities are chaffing you there is no better time than to escape and relax. Pisces have some fantastic ideas and opinions as to what will get them out of the rut but unless they can get some down time to strategize, life continues as usual. If money and time are tight, rejuvenate closer to home with pals. Massage anyone? Everyone!
