AQUARIUS (Jan 20– Feb 18): Less than a week to go before Valentine’s Day and you know what that means. It’s time, once again, to reinforce your reputation as a hopeless romantic. Not that you mind or that it’s hard work to pull off. You love being in love, you love being romantic, and you’re very, very good at it! So get started. What can you do to make it the most special day of all for your favorite person?

PISCES (Feb 19 – March 20): Right in the middle of your carefully planned day, an emotion will arrive. The kind of emotion that holds the potential for disrupting all those well-laid plans. What are you going to do about it? Well, for starters, you’re not going to let it happen in public. If you feel a wave of emotions coming on, cancel your appointments and get yourself some privacy. Mental and emotional health are just as important as physical health. Take a sick day, and allow yourself to recuperate.

ARIES (Mar 21 – Apr 19):
For once, it’s really tough to say how you might react to what comes your way at the moment. Ordinarily, your loved ones would have absolutely no problem figuring that out. They might even be able to recite something uncannily close to your answer. But now? Well, with the way you’ve been acting lately, your response is up for grabs. Kind of nice for a change, isn’t it?

TAURUS (Apr 20 – May 20): You’ve felt this coming for a while now. Certain family members have been smiling smugly, tossing knowing glances around and exchanging meaningful winks. Now, if anyone loves secrets, it’s you — but only when you’ve been let in on it. Beg, if you have to. Something is going on, and you deserve to know about it. After all, who’s better at keeping quiet than you are?

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Heaven helps anyone who tries to come between you and what you absolutely must get off of your chest at the moment. One look should shut them up, and probably send them retreating to the corner with their tail between their legs. But if that doesn’t work, try a few well-placed words. The truthful kind. The honestly truthful kind. Bet they won’t stop until they’re well past that corner.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Secrets are in the air at the moment — for one and all. It may be particularly tough to keep quiet, however, because the secret you want to share is a happy one. Still, you’ve been sworn to silence. There’s only one thing to do: Beg him or her to let you out of your promise, swear that you’ll only talk about it with your best friend, and do just that.

LEO (July 23 – Aug 22):
You can come out now — and you can stop worrying, too. You’ve been dealing with an internal tug-of-war for days, trying to decide whether to choose the responsible or the fun thing to do. Well, if you’re clever, you can do both. And whoever said you weren’t clever? Be diligent during the day — work a little bit longer if you have to — but once quitting time comes, put it all behind you.

VIRGO (Aug 23 – Sept 22): Ready to take this relationship one giant step closer toward intimacy? True intimacy? Bet you are. Bet they are, too. So get busy and forget about it being a school night. Plan on being up late — for only the most delightful reasons. Hey, if you’re tired tomorrow, you can always nap. Or call in. Wouldn’t it be fun to play hide-and-seek under the covers all day? Of course it would.

LIBRA (Sept 23 – Oct 22):
You have every right to voice your opinion, especially if you think a friend’s new love interest isn’t good enough for them. But, remember, if you do, you’re treading on some dangerous territory. So reconsider: it might be best to let this fling just take its own course. By butting into other people’s love lives, you run the risk of alienating them. Bite your tongue and just observe things for a while. When it doesn’t work out, don’t rub it in their face.

SCORPIO (Oct 23 – Nov 21): Surprises will be coming to you via your career and the people involved in it. This could mean the higher-ups have been sheisty about your situation or something they promised — the chances of that happening, however, are slim. What’s more likely is that someone in a position of authority has been working on your behalf. Either way, get ready for something huge!

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 – Dec 21): Being dutiful, steadfast and reliable comes easily to you, but you’ve been good for far too long. It’s now officially time to let yourself go! Get out there and have some serious fun. Why do it locally? Isn’t it time to take your show on the road? You may have missed New Year’s Eve in Paris, but that doesn’t mean you can’t drag your own parade somewhere else.

CAPRICORN (Dec 22 – Jan 19): Feeling restless? Feeling as if you need to expand your horizons a touch by getting to know some new friends? Well, you’re right on track, and the universe will be only too happy to help. When an invitation arrives — and it will, probably sooner rather than later — you should jump right on it, get yourself dressed, and greet your new peer group. Will it be that easy? It sure will!
