Calm down, Taurus!

ARIES (March 21 to April 20): The moon close to Saturn in your house of home and family could make you skittish about dealing with parents or siblings. Avoidance takes too much effort, sweetie; the key is to just deal. An Aquarius needs your friendship, not your advice. Just be there. No judgments.

TAURUS (April 21 to May 20): You really need to calm down, darling. This is a highly emotional time for you, with the Sun opposing you, but please, have some perspective. Huge life changes can wait. Right now just focus on sleeping with another Taurus and then on getting some more sleep. Relaxation needs to be your top priority!

GEMINI (May 21 to June 21): Don’t worry so much about what other people think, Gemini. You need to be the master of your own destiny on the job. If colleagues don’t get your career plan, who cares? An Aries gets you intellectually and sexually and wants to be master of your domain.

CANCER (June 22 to July 22): This is a tricky time for your love life, Cancer. The Sun’s transit through your adolescent fifth house could make you susceptible to false flattery from a shallow Libra. Don’t give it away so easily. If you can hold back your heart just a bit, you will receive the love that you really want by Christmas. For now, be nice, not naughty.

LEO (July 23 to August 22): This is a good time for you to pursue a career goal that up until now has seemed way out of reach. When you get the positive feedback you deserve from authority figures, you will feel more confident in other areas of your life. A Virgo believes in you – when you believe in yourself.

VIRGO (August 23 to September 22): Jupiter’s forward movement through your sign is bound to help you get what you want out of life. The key is to become a more active participant in your own existence. Stop reacting, and start taking action. A Leo isn’t sure what you want from him. Let him know.

LIBRA (September 23 to October 22): Your ruler Venus is conjunct volatile Pluto in your house of communication this week. Don’t be surprised if you run into a crazy Scorpio from the past or if you find yourself exploding at someone who has pushed you too far. This is the week to let your anger out – while you just don’t give a damn. Finally, a respite from your own self-censorship!

SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21): Mercury moves into your money house this week and brings you luck in all things communication-oriented. Your way with words can bring you bucks. Just make sure you hold that scathing wit in check when dealing with wimpy types. A Pisces wants magic, not reality, so tone down the tough-guy act.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21): What a trippy time this is for you, Sag. The Sun’s transit through your house of mysticism is making you look at life more deeply than usual. You mean, it’s not all about partying? An Aquarius thinks it is!

CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19): No need to be bitter, Capricorn. After a lot of chaos in the relationship area of your life, you are finally ready to give up and say, “I can’t control my own heart.” Good! A little vulnerability gets you very far with a Sagittarius.

AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18): Venus will be close to Pluto in your house of friends during mid-November. That means you’d better get closer to your dear buddies instead of pulling away. A Capricorn has something important to tell you. Your life is more interconnected with your friends than ever.

PISCES (February 19 to March 20): Be gentle with a Gemini. Just because you are feeling strong and self-sufficient (for once!) doesn’t mean everyone else is. You are needed as a nurturer in mid-November. Don’t let down anyone important.
