AQUARIUS (Jan 20– Feb 18): Being there for other people when they need you — no matter how inconvenient that happens to be — affords those who do so with certain benefits. First off, the good feelings that go along with helping someone for absolutely no personal gain. It’s also nice to know that others trust you enough to ask — kind of makes you feel good about just being you. Well, a coworker is about to say ‘thank you’ — another perk, but one you’d never even considered.


PISCES (Feb 19 – March 20): If there’s anything you absolutely adore, it’s romance — along with the dreams, nostalgia and sweet nothings that accompany the condition. So now, when that tender subject is so very easily inspired by the heavens, it’s up to you to do your thing — to make sure that not just you and the one you love are enjoying it, but that you encourage others to go out there and get some of their own.


ARIES (Mar 21 – Apr 19):

After thinking about making changes for so long and not mentioning it to anyone, the obvious solution has suddenly dawned on you: If you really want to change, what could possibly fulfill that urge more dramatically than moving, long distance? After all, that would mean you’d have to change your home, your job, all your relationships and all your habits. If all this sounds invigorating rather than frightening, get busy. The sooner the better.


TAURUS (Apr 20 – May 20): You’ve just about had it with putting your nose to the grindstone, and you’ve just about had it with a certain group of friends. That’s really saying something, for you, the most diligent, loyal sign in the heavens. It’s like this: You’ve just discovered somehow that you’re being taken advantage of, and you’re all done with it. The best part is now that you’ve made your decision, you can relax, guilt-free. Oh, and by the way, stay mad — it’s energizing.


GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You’ve never been famous for turning anyone down, no matter what they ask for. You’d rather go without than have a loved one in need of something. That’s not something most people might know about you — just those who are closest to you. But now, it won’t matter who needs what. You may not let them know that it’s you who’s provided it, but you’ll find a way to make a wish happen for someone in a legitimately bad spot.


CANCER (June 21-July 22): Don’t let any early morning crankiness ruin what might turn out to be a very, very nice day. Whether it’s a bad dream or the way you slept, you and your sweetheart could wake up in a not-so-great mood. If you have to, get the argument over with and exchange those less-than-affectionate words — but at least wait until you’ve had your coffee. Then, bury the hatchet and do something entirely different from what you had planned. It sure can’t hurt.


LEO (July 23 – Aug 22):

One side of your nature loves being on stage — having everything right out there for one and all to see. The other side of you equally adores secrets and intrigue, especially if there’s a bit of drama attached to it. You’ll need to make a decision right now, however, as to which side of yourself will handle the current situation. The outgoing, public side or the intense, personal side? Good luck.


VIRGO (Aug 23 – Sept 22): Just when you were sure you’d never, ever hear from them again — and just when you were getting used to the idea — guess what? You’ll see or hear from someone who’ll mention that this particular missing person has been seen, and that they’ve mentioned your name. Remember, when you’re thinking of someone, it’s often because they’re thinking of you too. Prepare yourself to meet up with them, and don’t pretend that you’re not tickled when it happens.


LIBRA (Sept 23 – Oct 22):

You’re one of the few signs that really, truly considers your coworkers to be an extended family of sorts — so now that you need advice on a professional level, it’s natural that you’d think of an elder from that extended family to go to for help. The good news is that if you weren’t already sure they felt the same familial way about you, you’ll certainly know it soon.


SCORPIO (Oct 23 – Nov 21): It’s easy to keep denying yourself the fun you’ve wanted to have, to keep telling yourself that you’ll do it next week, or next month or next year. Fortunately, you have someone in your life now who won’t let you get away with that kind of thing — not now, anyway. Don’t argue with them, and for heaven’s sake, don’t alienate them. Reward them. Take them along for the ride, whether it’s via car, plane or train.


SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 – Dec 21): If anyone had predicted last month that you’d be totally absorbed in creating a warm, snug nest for someone you love — well, in the midst of trying not to choke on what you were drinking, you’d have advised them to seek professional help immediately. See? It only goes to show you what a difference a day makes — and what a difference a month can make, too — especially if someone wonderful happens to wander into your life in the meantime.


CAPRICORN (Dec 22 – Jan 19): You’ve often been described as the family historian, and while it’s a title you love, it’s also one you richly deserve. You remember things no one else does, and you have a scrapbook that’s entirely up-to-date and a box of mementos that will bring tears to the eyes of all parties involved. It’s time to bring those things out and let your loved ones see how good you are.
