Chatty Mercury in Sagittarius squares dizzy Neptune and sextiles feisty Mars. While we think know what we are talking about, we may just be blowing a scented wind. It doesn’t matter. Diplomacy trumps all this week. So tailor your message and see how you can sew up the crowd.

ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
It is hard to reign yourself in. The urge is to drop everything, maybe even leave a certain budding relationship, to escape to parts unknown. You think that there is something more out there. There is something that you are missing. But tether your wandering spirit this week. You are building something meaningful right here, Aries. Know what I mean?
TAURUS (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
What area of your life do you see as your greatest opportunity for success? The choices veer from deeper personal relationships to grand scale professional accomplishment. The temptation is to try to have it all but it will be a tough balancing act. Taureans learn a thing or two on the job that can be applied to their grand plans. From small acorns grow mighty oaks.
GEMINI (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
Your creativity hits a high note. Will it come out sharp or flat? It doesn’t matter! Play your own beautiful music with verve, gusto and moxie. If you are stuck in time, expect some breakthroughs. But as with anything, moderation saves the day. Geminis can go over the top and blend their various notes into an intoxicating cocktail. (Any one we know...?)
CANCER (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
Home and family issues dominate your world. But wouldn’t you rather play the dominator rather than the dominated? Relationships require your attention and need to be fit into the context of a balanced happy home environment. Cancers need to call ‘em as they see ‘em and draw a line in the sand. We are not building democracies here.
LEO (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
Complaining will get you nowhere this week ... or any other week for that matter. Leos are privy to a bit of background chatter around the office and try to piece a certain scenario together. Avoid the temptation to do that. A little knowledge is a dangerous thing. Events are still unfolding and may not take the course you now imagine. Take a long lunch instead.
VIRGO (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
Virgos feel battered and fried as the weeks progress. Maybe it’s because there is so much fun stuff to do that you try to do it all. As nice as that sounds, it is impractical and wasteful. Plan your jollies with an eye towards a balance between the affordability and joy index. That falls somewhere between teas with your parents and playing parents to a bunch of teases.
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
Libras think they are in charge of their domestic agenda but the house will vote you down at every turn now. Instead of forcing your opinions, it is more effective to offer a mild observation and then wait while others think about it. While you are waiting - go out, have fun and let it all hang out. By the time you crawl home, you won’t care whatever the heck is decided.
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
Your mind is very active this week. Even idle thoughts and musings can burst you into trouble. You might listen to the wrong advice and be swayed by an errant someone whispering in your ear. Turn off the static Scorpio and meditate on what you know to be true. Don’t be tempted to reveal all or even a small tidbit. Loose lips sink ships....
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
As you gather all your friends this week, take note of how the range of discussion eventually comes back to money. And primarily yours. Sagittarians are bon vivants and can’t resist spreading their largess around (among other things....) But as you lavish your pals with all sorts of goodies, ask yourself “Will it be reciprocated?” Hmm. Better ask for a receipt.
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
If you yearn for a bit more attention, prepare to get much more than you bargained for. Capricorns find every little move is examined and reviewed by a cadre of the powerful few. This is great if you are angling for position among the 1%’ers but not so hot if your dreams veer to more private personal pastimes of the 99%. Maybe the position is 50/50?
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
All you want is a bit of press, some recognition for a job well done. But it is not in the stars now Aquarius. Those wielding the power (at this particular time) are not listening despite all your prescient strategies and your cassandra-like prowess. You are cast as second string in an orchestra of firsts. Tell them to go pluck themselves and just bide your time.
PISCES (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
Who flipped your switch, Pisces? As the weeks progress you become more socially suave. Your repartee is filled with charming sexual innuendos that make you especially attractive in certain circles. But don’t waste all this oomph in once place. The lesson to be learned now is how much icing to be spread on a particular piece of cheese or beef cake.
