Aries (March 21-April 20)
This week, friends and lovers may focus on past events or yesterday’s romantic ideals. Monday through Thursday, expect loved ones to be moody, introspective and withdrawn. Gently encourage others to describe their regrets or address previously neglected issues. This is an excellent time to let go of unproductive memories. After Thursday, work mates and close friends will ask pointed questions; offer wisdom and emotional guidance.
Taurus (April 21-May 20)
An important workplace or romantic partnership may enter a phase of emotional reversal. Tuesday through Friday, watch for a close associate or loved one to revisit past issues of trust, attention to detail or poorly used time. All of this is unavoidable. Remain graciously attentive and all will be well. Some Taureans may also find that an old family pattern is repeated. Loved ones need concrete ideas and a new direction.
Gemini (May 21-June 21)
Attraction and social enjoyment are on the rise. Before midweek, expect a close friend or potential lover to offer positive comments on your appearance or personal style. At present, both friends and lovers will be drawn to your physical energy and optimism. Don’t shy away from new proposals. After Wednesday, last-minute invitations will be difficult to resist. Enjoy new activities but refuse to abandon important duties. Authority figures may be temperamental.
Cancer (June 22-July 22)
Early this week, unusual financial or business opportunities will demand a quick response. Watch for a rare source of income to take priority. Newly established procedures and contacts will rapidly expand in the coming weeks. Pace yourself and ask authority figures for firm directions. After Friday, a unique romantic interest may arrive. Expect age differences or long-distance love affairs to be prime concerns.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
Instructions from bosses or mentors may be easily confused. Be on the lookout for unusual mistakes that may cause delays or tensions between co-workers. At present, both friends and colleagues are prone to prideful displays. Tread cautiously and expect others to vigorously defend their actions. After Saturday, relaxation and private social events will create an atmosphere of calm reassurance. Discuss new life goals and romantic plans with loved ones.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Early Tuesday, watch for a colleague or key official to propose a challenging new project. Joint finances and shared duties will work strongly in your favor. Respond positively to all creative ideas. Caution is still indicated, however; wait until early December before firmly committing time, extra energy or funds. After Wednesday, family routines are unpredictable. Work schedules, older relatives and home obligations are all featured. Be prepared to make fast changes.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)
This is an excellent week to re-align work and social priorities. Expect friends and colleagues to act quickly on your proposals. Recent conflicts will be easily resolved. Watch for both loved ones and co-workers to leave behind past misgivings, criticisms or doubts. Ambition will be a powerful theme in the coming months. Expect long-term friends, romantic partners and key officials to no longer withhold vital facts or news. Get busy; it’s time to impress others with your style.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22)
Beginning this week, a friend may propose unique travel or educational plans. Over the next few months, new course work, exotic locations and other cultures will have strong appeal. Use this burst of creativity to expand your social life and explore life experiences. After Friday, discuss your thoughts and plans with a loved one. At present, a recently shy friend or new lover may feel misunderstood.
Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21)
Social or romantic relationships will be sweetly sentimental this week. Early Tuesday, expect a close friend or lover to offer subtle compliments or a seductive romantic overture. Many Sagittarians will enter a phase of vital sensuality and romantic fulfillment. Creativity, spiritual understanding and artistic interests are also on the rise. Share your recent thoughts and inner observations with loved ones. Emotional intimacy and spiritual learning are rewarding.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 20)
Prior to Wednesday, private reflection and sensitivity are accented. Spend extra moments in quiet thought, if at all possible. Key issues may involve recent statements between friends, the past actions of lovers, difficult memories or family events. All of this may feel intense, but it will soon lead to key breakthroughs of personal understanding. Dreams, memories or spiritual insight will draw your attention in the coming weeks; listen closely to the inner voice.
Aquarius (Jan. 21-Feb. 19)
Tuesday through Thursday, watch for a powerful romantic and business awareness to arrive. Although recent discussions may have been disjointed or frantic, there is room for workplace advancement and deepening commitments between loved ones. Some Aquarians may also find that an older friend or relative now asks for added support. Family disputes and pride are strong themes. Go slow and expect a variety of conflicting statements.
Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20)
Home relations may be sentimental, loving and enjoyable. Over the last few weeks, many Pisceans have experienced distress or miscommunications in both romantic and family relations. Now, however, and over the next eight to 10 days, all intimate relationships will stabilize. Use this time to re-establish important bonds with loved ones and encourage new activities with trusted friends.
If Your Birthday is This Week …
If possible, resolve outstanding financial issues or career matters by the end of this year. Planetary alignments suggest that practical concerns and money planning will greatly intensify over the next eight to nine weeks. Projects left unfinished after Jan. 11 will become complicated. Finalize as many practical details as possible in the coming weeks and all will be well. After mid-March, a romantic decision will be needed. Marital relations, living arrangements and home planning are accented. Intimacy and trust are due to significantly increase. Expect bold requests and time-sensitive proposals.
