Aries (March 21 – April 19)
You continue to turn heads with your bright ideas and winning ways. Others strive to be like you in the workplace; you may find it more annoying than flattering. Financially, you’re tired of worrying about the future, so do yourself a favor and stop paying attention. You’re good to go, and have made the right moves for the time being. If the sky is falling, nothing gets by you and you’ll be the first to act on your hunch. Focus on the good, as there is more coming; the end of the month proves beneficial for all involved. Others are surprised you’ve lasted this long and compliment you on a winning formula. Romantically, coupled Aries may feel a little put off by a harmless remark from their partner; it’s what they didn’t say that you find irritating. The good news is that it’s but a moment. Life may have a few curveballs in store for the two of you, but you’re solid when it comes to problem solving. The weekend brings relief, as well as unexpected romance and freedom. Single Aries are downright mystified when a mystery guest turns their attention to you. There seems to be some irritation with this first encounter; if they’re single, don’t hold it against them. New opportunities open up in the weeks ahead, giving you something to look forward to – for real. Celebrate being part of a winning team!

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Your renewed focus, planning and expertise inspire others to do their best. You have the ability to influence someone of importance this week; this may be a political decision and scores one for the people as opposed to the establishment. You may find yourself looking for an outlet for physical exercise that involves fun — anything from yoga to dance to racquetball or joining a crew or rowing team. You’re ready to stretch your imagination and take a chance on something new. You may also be up for a physical, and could possibly use some added B vitamins to minimize dizziness or loss of balance. Financially, you may be writing some big checks this month to help out friends and family with unexpected needs. These challenges give you an opportunity to do what you do best – step in and help. The end of the month brings in additional, unexpected financial rewards, possibly in the form of an expensive gift. Romantically, coupled Taurus has several opportunities to enjoy a few laughs as well as entertain surprise guests. The weekend is sweet and filled with a sense of accomplishment. Single Taurus may not be able to hold in a secret any longer – if you have to tell, be sure it’s a source you can trust and outside of your normal clique. You’ll knock it out of the park when it comes to picking up the right partner at the right time. This week is full of surprise moments with unexpected individuals. Celebrate life’s grand adventure!

Gemini (May 21- June 20)
An unusual situation greets you on Monday that has you scratching your head the better part of the week. It’s a positive circumstance that catches you off-guard and requires an answer in the weeks ahead: a move, relocation or unexpected opportunity. Financially, your needs continue to be met and you may feel the wind shifting to your back as you find the courage to act on your dreams. Someone may surprise you with the opportunity to travel someplace exotic or unusual. It’s time to receive for a change, so stop questioning and just appreciate their intention. On a smaller scale a stranger may pick up your tab or pay your toll. You’re great at keeping a friend’s problem under wraps, but may need to ask for help; it’s fine to go in confidence to someone you trust to find the answers you need. Romantically, coupled Gemini is breaking ground in new territory, such as meeting the family for the first time or traveling together. If you’ve been a couple long-term, you’ll find yourself reliving old events; it’s up to you to make it sweeter the second time around. Single Gemini would love to get involved, but may be content to watch for the time being. Observing and slowing things down can be a good thing, giving you the opportunity to build self-confidence — and more importantly, giving Mr. or Mrs. Right an opportunity to catch up with you! Celebrate a solid future!

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Old emotional scars are sometimes hard to hide. You will have plenty of people who want to help you if you’re willing to let them know what’s going on. You’ll choose the one you can trust. Neck and back stiffness or aches may need some additional stretching or chiropractic adjustment. The course of action required is convenient and does the trick. A favorite relative may look for ways to reconnect; it may be through a fun adventure. Financially, you feel less stress and more optimism as new events unfold this week. An acquaintance acknowledges your talents and looks to bring you on board — possibly in the form of a media-related event. You may be in for a surprise move via an unexpected real estate deal that falls into your lap – for example, house sitting or renting a friend’s home for an ideal price. It’s a no brainer deal. Do it. Romantically, coupled Cancer routinely runs hot and cold, due to underlying tension and anxiety. Stop second-guessing your partner, put on a happy face, and work together to get what you want.  Single Cancer is alert and dialed into their surroundings, and knows exactly what they’re looking for. This week, you’ll free up the energy for a surprise bonus if you’re willing to put your focus on projects other than romance. You’ve got nothing to lose and everything to gain. Celebrate being in the know!

Leo (July 23 – August 22)
You’ve had a rough go of it the last few weeks, and you’re tired of feeling beat up. By now you know the score — and whether or not you like it doesn’t matter. New rules change the game again this week, bringing renewed frustration about being singled out. If you give way immediately, you’ll gain a new sense of control. Things immediately soften, and by the end of the week you may see your status repaired with someone that matters. This week, you may find you need some rubber boots after being caught in unexpected weather or surprise frigid air. A moment of nostalgia catches you off-guard, allowing others to get a glimpse of the real you. This only deepens others’ affinity. A boss who is fond of you looks to have a serious conversation about your well being and future. Romantically, coupled Leo isn’t afraid to show affection or share their love in front of others. This week, you may draw some surprise attention or have others commenting about the closeness you share. Single Leo may have many romantic opportunities, but are looking at the one they can’t have. Going about your business (as opposed to plotting how to seduce them) wins their favor and ultimately gives you the chance you’ve been waiting for. Celebrate dreams coming true!

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
A testy friend may need a helping hand and some understanding. Do your best to not take things personally; they’ve been caught off-guard and simply need some encouragement. You’re the voice of reason that grounds them. You may find yourself researching foreign currency or looking to diversify your investments. Wills, trusts and conversations around inheritance and avoiding high taxes are current family topics. You may need to buy contacts, glasses or updated your prescription. Also, go easy on your voice by keeping it lubricated, as allergies may be taking a toll. This week, keep things balanced and take breaks when needed to avoid feeling drained. Romantically, coupled Virgo is on top the world and excited about life. The weekend brings relief from a complicated situation that is finally resolved; this could be connected to an extended family member or close friend. Single Virgo is content this week with staying in and laying low. The weekend may bring a resurgence of energy and a desire to catch up with pals. The ball is in your court when it comes to catching the eye of someone special. Celebrate your divine timing!

Libra (September 23 – October 22)
You’re of sound mind and body and finally feel refreshed after what seems to be a long self-imposed sentence. Now that you feel that you have more freedom, you’ll be able to complete tasks and assignments that have been piling up. This proves to be a productive week as you receive positive results and movement regarding old projects. A manipulative individual loses their hold on you, giving you a better sense of well-being and balance. Now that you are no longer affected by their mood swings, bad attitude or condescending tone, you are primed to get just the facts and keep moving: a plus for all involved. Financially, a high-pressure situation boils over. While there is nothing to do in the moment, other than observe the situation, you know it’s a mess you’ll get to at the right time. Keep ankles and feet properly protected with appropriate footwear to avoid injury. A too-good-to-be-true opportunity is beginning to take shape.; stay focused at the task at hand and allow it to percolate. The end of the month shows positive activity, along with the rewards you’ve been dreaming of. Romantically, coupled Libra is no longer jealous of other couples as relationship situations get resolved and renewed enthusiasm is seen from both partners. The weekend seals the deal. Single Libra is keeping their fingers crossed and looking forward to having a great night out to meet the perfect partner. Thursday’s projections are good, clean fun, with the weekend revealing decadence and surprise encounters. Celebrate being seen and heard for your strengths!

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
You may have underestimated someone close to you and the depth of his or her capacity for manipulation or betrayal. This is not something new, just another story to add to the collection. Resist the temptation to manipulate by taking things in stride and focusing on the positive. They get theirs in the end without your help. Financially, you may be asked to help pay a debt that was overlooked or misdirected. The end of the week brings a new upward trend in a business situation. You may be nominated for a prestigious award, given a bonus or gift, or have the opportunity to speak at an important event attended by your peers. You may be considering doing something to freshen your face; just do so before Venus, the planet of beauty, turns retrograde in May. You’ll get better results before this period, or after Venus moves forward on June 27. It’s also not advisable to invest in new projects during this time. Romantically, coupled Scorpio has an opportunity to settle the score and move forward in a new way. The weekend brings positive relief from old concerns as you both make progress towards one another. Single Scorpio may be suspicious of old flames that show up unannounced and looking innocent. Take your time and enjoy the rekindling process; there is no hurry and you know exactly what you want. Celebrate being in the driver’s seat!

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
This week is a struggle of unknowns as you begin a new period of your life. You are revisiting elements that you are familiar with, but now done with a twist. Others look to you for solid advice; do your best to be factual, as you may have a tendency to embellish out of enthusiasm. A new investment pays off unexpectedly when you make a new friend who supports your work. A personal situation may need to be addressed that is on the fringe of being inappropriate; now is not the time to muddy the waters, because you are looking for a temporary diversion from life. While there may be more to this story, now is not the best time for you to explore it. You may find yourself having to apologize for previous remarks that were said out of exhaustion; no one will blame you if you are sincere, but do so sooner rather than later. This week, you have a strong chance of getting what you want as long as you are willing to compromise first. Others take this as a sign of being a team leader and will give way faster than you anticipated. Romantically, coupled Sag would like their partner to take over the planning for a time or two; this week, they do so without complaint, creating a fun and loving atmosphere both at home and at work. Single Sag feels valued this week when friends, co-workers and potential partners come out to show their love. Celebrate a brave new world that includes you!

Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
You may be frustrated with an adult who isn’t holding up their end of the bargain; this could be an ex-spouse, co-worker or boss. You’ll be forced to speak up and will find it easy to do so in the form of an inquiry. This situation could try your patience and take some time to rectify; on the upside, you’ll have plenty of other good things happening. A jealous individual looks to derail your career efforts by planting half-truths about you. Keep your eyes and ears open for anything out of the ordinary so you can nip it in the bud; the person in question doesn’t have the firepower to do any real damage. You may be in the process of a move or simply going through closets. Things go better than expected when additional help arrives. Music, lyrics and concerts pique your interest this week; you may find yourself looking for something fun for you and a friend to do in the weeks ahead. Babies, formulas, diapers, basically all things baby show up around you this week. This may create feelings of nostalgia or a desire to add to your family. Romantically, coupled Cap feels solid and connected to their spouse. An opportunity to express appreciation with the perfect impromptu gift arises; it does the trick and leaves the two of you in bliss. Single Cap is less insecure and focused on their friends’ and potential partner’s happiness, creating great chemistry for love. Celebrate hitting a high note this week!

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
You tend to cheer for the underdog as long as they deserve it. This week, make sure you haven’t been taken in by a smooth operator. You may discover that a relationship in your life is not what it appears; this eye-opener gives you cause to ask questions and check references at an entirely new level. This could pertain to a company you hired or to a potential new partnership in the planning stages. Doubt may set in, but only temporarily as you handle each task; you’re still rock solid in your ability to be objective. Don’t let an “operator” shake your independent spirit. Your hair and nails may need some revitalizing after a dry winter. You’ll find the perfect and inexpensive solution. Romantically, coupled Aquarians appreciate the small things and let their partner know. They may return the favor with small tokens of their appreciation, although not exactly what you had in mind. It’s the thought that counts. The weekend brings a sweet serenity. Single Aquarians are less cautious than usual and find themselves opening doors to new friendships and getting reacquainted with old friends. You’ll find a steady stream of people wanting to please you for a change. Celebrate the beginning of exciting new times!

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
You’re excited about the turn life has taken in the last six months and are finally ready to ride off in the sunset. This week, however, your fantasy is delayed again by the nagging details of a past that won’t go away – for example, a divorce, a lawsuit, selling a business or home, or dealing with a difficult partner who is both controlling and silent. The good news is that you may find more support than originally expected, giving you a morale boost. Surprise moments of positivity in the form of a new relationship – business, personal, or both — may be bursting forth, giving you more to smile about. Pain in backs, hips and knees may be triggered this week in the wake of emotional pressure related to financial details that are less than pretty. You may be up against someone powerful or someone who seems to have stacked the odds against you. This situation is likely to go on for the remainder of the year, so it’s best to find a way to set it aside, giving you the relief your body needs. In addition, a summertime twist has you feeling less concerned about losses as a huge payday hits. Romantically, coupled Pisces are feeling closely connected and are an integral part of one another’s day. The weekend brings in unexpected gestures of kindness. Single Pisces are free to have a good time and to “be happy” for a change — without the worry, doubt, or fear about hurting anyone’s feelings. Celebrate your new winning attitude!
