AQUARIUS (Jan 20– Feb 18): Everyone you usually hang with will urge you to go out tonight and tip back a few green ales. If you’re not in the mood, though, don’t force yourself. It won’t hurt you to miss one gathering with the usual suspects. Besides, once you have your shoes off — especially considering the week you’ve been having — you won’t want to go anywhere.
PISCES (Feb 19 – March 20): Secrets are usually the easiest thing in the world for you to manage. You just decide you won’t talk about them, and that’s it. They disappear from your memory. Right now, however, if they’re your own secrets, they may not be quite so easy to dismiss. You need to talk them over with someone, and your confidante will be more than agreeable. Just be sure you choose someone who’s worthy of that trust.
ARIES (Mar 21 – Apr 19):
The folks you’re associating with have been absolutely enjoying your company and truly learning from you. They’ve decided to act on what you’ve taught them, too. So however subtle their message is, and however subtly they’re delivering it, rest assured you’ll recognize it. You may need to ask them to tone down their rhetoric just a touch, though — it might be too intense for you right now.
TAURUS (Apr 20 – May 20): As usual, you have a specific plan and a definite goal in mind. You’ll be especially focused on making this idea become a reality, and you’ll be convinced it can actually happen, mostly because you’ve been working so hard to be upfront and honest about it. So when someone comes to you and asks whether you’re ready — be honest and don’t push yourself. Take your time. This can work.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): A family member who tried to spring a surprise on you yesterday will be treated to at least the same shock today — coming right back at them. In other words, you won’t bite — not one little nip — but you’ll definitely shock them. After all, if you still feel the need to return the favor, at least you’ll make yours a pleasant surprise. And why not? It’s not as if you have anything to lose. You, after all, were warned by their haste — a big plus.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): A certain someone you love is much too far away for your taste. Since you can’t perform miracles, there’s only one thing to do: Pick up the phone and do some serious damage to your long-distance bill — or break out the Internet camera and camp out together. Maybe you can even plug in the same movie at the same time and watch it together. If that’s not romantic, nothing is.
LEO (July 23 – Aug 22):
For several weeks, you’ve been toeing the line, keeping a close watch on your every move and being sure you’re following the rules — it’s making you crazy. You’ve never been good at buckling down and doing what the powers that be command you to do. In fact, you’re ordinarily much better at being contrary — but now you seem to be on the same side, so you’re doing your best. Good thing, too. They’re looking at you for a promotion.
VIRGO (Aug 23 – Sept 22): Don’t even take the chance that you won’t catch the phone on the fourth ring. Answer it after three rings, at the very most. Even if you catch their name on the caller ID, just wait. You’ll definitely want to hear this — and you’ll want them to believe you were asleep, away or doing anything but wondering if it was them. Don’t worry, either. They’ll respond beautifully to this tactic. There really is something to be said for playing hard to get.
LIBRA (Sept 23 – Oct 22):
In the mood to play around? Definitely not. Thinking about getting serious with someone you’re thinking might just be toying with you? Definitely — because you just can’t believe it’s true. Well, have a nice, long, heart-to-heart chat and let your gut tell you what you’re up against. You never know. You could well be the person they’ve been waiting for to break them of their evil ways. That’s if anyone can….
SCORPIO (Oct 23 – Nov 21): You can’t put your finger on it — not exactly — but you can tell something is going on you didn’t know about. You won’t mind unless whoever was supposed to be on your side suddenly seems to have defected. You might also want to consider the fact that someone could be trying to arrange a wonderful surprise for you. Think about it. Because if that’s the case, keeping quiet would be your best bet.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 – Dec 21): You don’t need to worry about that hangnail — or any other trivial issue that’s been on your mind — any more. Whatever was bothering you will quite quickly be over and done with soon. You might think it’s because you’ve had such an eventful few days and you really didn’t have time to worry about it, but that’s really not the case. It’s come to a close. Truly.
CAPRICORN (Dec 22 – Jan 19): Secrets, whispers and intrigue are the specials the cosmic menu is offering up today and that will suit you just fine for once. Ordinarily, you’re a big fan of doing things in the most direct manner possible, but at the moment, you’re ready, willing and able to provide the world with a dose of mystery. That will go double if the person you’ve been spending most of your time with lately seems to think it’s fun to hide something from you.
