AQUARIUS (Jan 20– Feb 18): Telling the truth isn’t just second nature to you — it’s really more like an innate reaction that doubles when official business is impending. So now, regardless of how anxiously you’re awaiting someone’s answer to a tender question, you won’t be willing to tone it down or take it back, not even a touch — not even if you know they’d prefer you hadn’t started a major ball rolling with the powers that be. Oh, well. Respect is the glue that holds any relationship together.
PISCES (Feb 19 – March 20): You have very little time to achieve your mission of finding a way to make your loved ones realize that working together on the same side is better for all parties concerned than keeping a nonsensical feud going — which won’t help anyone at all. That said, you can only do what you can do — and you can’t live anyone else’s life for them. So if they won’t cooperate, don’t beat yourself up about it.
ARIES (Mar 21 – Apr 19):
It’s time to think about what’s important to you — but then, you don’t need to be told that. It’s probably been next to impossible for you to focus on anything else. If there’s any way to excuse yourself from situations that might require you to act phony, better make arrangements bright and early to be unavailable. Oh, and be prepared to handle some tricky joint financial matters too.
TAURUS (Apr 20 – May 20): First thing this morning, you’ll need to decide what to give or do for your sweetheart, your best friend or whoever’s been putting up with you lately, no matter what you’ve dished out. You know it hasn’t been easy, you know what they’d like and you know they deserve it. Go all out. Your feelings are going to be obvious anyway. Might as well be sure there’s a lovely remembrance to go along with the moment.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): When you decide to take a few days off, it’s quite a different experience than the rest of the world. Your friends and family aren’t used to going more than a few hours without either seeing you or talking with you, so your absence raises all kinds of red flags. You’re in the mood to disappear from the world now. Still, be nice. Call when you know they won’t be there to answer, and leave a message.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): You’ve often wondered about what might happen to the folks who are dependent on you if you decided to stop taking care of them — or if you couldn’t take care of them any longer. Would they sink, swim or find someone else to care for them? In any case, you’d never be able to live with the guilt. It’s time to do yourself and your charge(s) a favor. Give them a few referral numbers and a pep talk, make your exit and see what happens.
LEO (July 23 – Aug 22):
If anyone loves a dare, it’s you, no doubt about it. It doesn’t matter whether it’s spoken or just hinted at. So now, when a friend you’ve long admired for their bravery makes you an offer that sounds suspiciously like a friendly (and inspirational) dare, you won’t hesitate for a second. You may, however, need to explain to your sweetheart, especially if they weren’t expecting you to be AWOL because you just couldn’t turn down a challenge.
VIRGO (Aug 23 – Sept 22): You’re not mean-spirited — not one tiny little bit. You can, however, be goaded — at times — into behavior that’s beneath you. That only happens if someone shows anything less than total respect for a worthy cause or someone you love. If you’ve already warned them about this, or if you know they’ve heard about your recent dealings with someone impolite, you won’t hesitate to come out with both guns blazing. And well you should.
LIBRA (Sept 23 – Oct 22):
The long-distance travel bug hasn’t just landed in your vicinity, it’s set up shop in your imagination, igniting an insatiable urge to get to that place you’ve always wanted to see. So at the moment, getting there is the most important thing in the world to you. Fortunately, you know where and when to go, and exactly the right person to take along with you. Now, pack. And pack lots of red and black.
SCORPIO (Oct 23 – Nov 21): You’re known for your magnetism and the innate ability to tempt anyone into doing just about anything by simply suggesting it in ‘that way.’ So when someone you find absolutely irresistible walks by, you’ll do everything in your power to entice them into spending some time with you. If they’re already yours, so much the better. Still, you won’t work any less hard or any less charmingly, and they’ll be just as infatuated as they were the first time you wooed them. If they’re not yours, well, let’s just say that situation won’t last for very long at all.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 – Dec 21): You’ve worked so hard and so long on this particular project that you can’t imagine finishing it — much like a good book. That’s a good thing, if you happen to be in a hurry to move on to something new — and when aren’t you? If you’re still trying to get the attention of a certain authority figure for your next project, however, drop some hints. Let them know you’re in the home stretch and you’d like their executive opinion on what’s coming up next.
CAPRICORN (Dec 22 – Jan 19): Believe it or not, you’re an expert at romance. You just don’t do it the way most folks do. When you’re out to impress someone, you don’t just pick up a pizza and beer; you make sure you’re wooing them in most elegant fashion with limos, fine wine and tickets to the theater. However, if you can’t afford all that don’t worry. If anyone can make that pizza and beer evening feel truly special — elegant, even, once you lay out the silk napkins, the silver candlesticks and your best china — it’s you.
