AQUARIUS (Jan 20– Feb 18): If anyone accepts change easily, it’s you — regardless of what type of change it happens to be, or how or when it’s due to arrive. So being told that a major shift in your life’s circumstances is just around the corner won’t frighten you at all. You’ll be exhilarated. If a family member doesn’t greet the news with that same degree of enthusiasm, however, do what you can to help them adjust. Assure them that nothing but the best is en route. It’s the truth.


PISCES (Feb 19 – March 20): Donating time, energy or resources to a cause you care about has never been a problem for you. You’re amazingly generous, in all those categories and more. So when you’re approached now by someone who needs something from you, you definitely won’t argue about it. But if someone who loves you gently asks to look things over before you max out the cash limit on your card or clean out your checking account, don’t argue. They’re just trying to do for you what you’re trying to do for your cause.


ARIES (Mar 21 – Apr 19):

New beginnings aren’t just your sign’s specialty, they’re your very favorite state of affairs too. Happily, that’s exactly what’s on the agenda right now, thanks to an impending career offer that can only be called sweet. It may be so sweet, in fact, that you’ll be tempted to jump on it right away. Moving quickly might not be a bad idea, but taking time to check out the details first via a trusted, knowledgeable friend can’t hurt. Give them a call.


TAURUS (Apr 20 – May 20): You’re happy with yourself. You always have been, and there’s no reason to think that you won’t continue to be. You have, however, been thinking about introducing a new and improved you to the world. The thing is, you’ll have to create this person before you throw his or her coming out party. That’s the easy part. Believe it or not, it’s deciding when to do it that takes the real work.


GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You’re due for the type of experience that includes the urge to take yourself somewhere you’ve never been. If you have a spontaneous travel companion who’s prodding you, that urge may be especially irresistible. Oh, well. Put your nose to the grindstone and spend the evening immersed in a pile of brochures and maps — for a future time.


CANCER (June 21-July 22): You’ve always been known as a private person. That’s the way you were born and the way you’ll always be. So when someone approaches you with a smirk and a not-so-subtle question about what you have up your sleeve at the moment, don’t feel obligated to let them in on your secret — and make sure you know that’s how you feel.


LEO (July 23 – Aug 22):

Nothing short of intense, meaningful conversation will do at the moment, and anyone who deliberately tries to avoid the issue via pointless, trivial chitchat will receive their just desserts: a chilly stare and a fleeting glimpse of the back of your head. By the same token, if you’ve been deliberately avoiding a topic your sweetheart has tried to bring up for weeks, you’ll change your tune in a hurry. You may even wish they’d let it slide just a little bit longer.


VIRGO (Aug 23 – Sept 22): Your chance to turn one of your dreams into a goal and tackle that goal with your usual meticulous attention has now officially arrived — and if you’re dealing with the department of long-distance travel, higher education or spiritual quests, you’ll have all the heavenly help you could ever ask for to get the show on the road. Go for it.


LIBRA (Sept 23 – Oct 22):

Your sign’s skills as negotiator, mediator and go-between have been famous for what seems like forever, and with good reason. You can talk anyone into anything, so long as you believe in your heart that it’s the right thing to do. So when you’re approached by someone who needs you to help them deliver the unvarnished truth, you won’t just accept the job — you’ll volunteer for it. And well you should.


SCORPIO (Oct 23 – Nov 21): After days of heavy, intense conversations, you’ve finally reached a compromise of sorts. You’ll keep talking, but there will be absolutely no arguing. If you can’t see eye to eye, you’ll agree to disagree. Initially, that might not sound like progress. But if you think of where you’ve come from, you’ll realize that it’s not just progress — it’s the beginning of a whole new style of communication, and it will lead to a whole new type of understanding.


SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 – Dec 21): Every picture tells a story, so go ahead and dig out those old snapshots of you and that long-lost someone you haven’t talked to in forever. Wow — look how much fun you guys had together! Isn’t it a shame you drifted apart and lost touch? Wouldn’t it be great to get in contact and see how they’re doing now? And isn’t it funny that these are all questions you can answer?


CAPRICORN (Dec 22 – Jan 19): Fasten your seat belt and put your tray table in its upright position. You’re about to take flight — and that applies to every possible corner of your life, but most especially to affairs of the heart. So if you’ve been seeing someone casually, that won’t be the case any longer. One or both of you will either want to make a commitment or say your goodbyes. But don’t worry; the heavens are chock full of romance, and betting on anything other than commitment just wouldn’t be prudent.
