Get off the couch, Libra!
ARIES (March 21 to April 20): Mercury and Venus conjunct in your house of career means that you need to follow through on your charming promises to colleagues and bosses, darling. Don’t space out at the 11th hour. A Leo is more interested in mixing pleasure than business with you. Cut right to the fun; no need to talk shop.
TAURUS (April 21 to May 20): The Sun will be close to Pluto in your house of serious relationships during December, so get serious about commitment. You’ve been settling for less than what you deserve with a Virgo. Push the relationship envelope. You’ll be glad that you did. Don’t be afraid to fight for what you want (especially if it’s more that your right to party).
GEMINI (May 21 to June 21): Uranus moves forward in your house of teaching and learning, so use that clever mind of yours to improve humanity, not just your bank account. A little altruism by day leads to a little decadence by night with a do-gooder Pisces who sure knows how to do you good.
CANCER (June 22 to July 22): Mercury hooks up with Venus in your house of love and makes it impossible for you to hide your feelings for an Aries. Good! Your little acts of self-protection have turned into little acts of deception lately. Better to reveal your heart and risk getting it broken than to keep a relationship at the same tedious, superficial level. Stop treading water, darling water sign.
LEO (July 23 to August 22): Be a little more selective about whom you socialize with, Leo, especially as this busy holiday season begins. You don’t have to say “yes” to every cocktail party, you know. Be a little less available, and you will be sought out by the right people. An Aquarius wants more than just chitchat. Give him some quality time with you – alone.
VIRGO (August 23 to September 22): There’s no need to wig out over a social faux pas, Virgo. You are going through another one of your obsessive periods. Chill! A little relaxing time with a Taurus is time well spent. Use your energy wisely, and stop driving yourself crazy.
LIBRA (September 23 to October 22): Mercury conjunct Venus in your house of home and family should make you ready to get domestic and cozy with a Capricorn. Before you turn into a total married pod, though, be sure to reveal at least one sick and sexy thing you’d like to do with your husband in bed. Keep those home fires “burning,” please.
SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21): This is a lighthearted time for you, Scorpio, so enjoy it, don’t destroy it. You don’t have to get involved in all the social dramas going on around you. Laugh at the silliness of your hysterical friends, and indulge in fun and mischief with a Gemini.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21): It’s easy to blow up at the people around you during this intense Plutonian cycle, Sag. But why not look in the mirror and ask how you can improve yourself? And I don’t mean cosmetically! (You know you’re sexy just as you are, darling.) A Cancer won’t settle for you being on autopilot. Why should you?
CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19): You are so close to getting what you want from your relationship and you can’t even see it! Reprioritize, Capricorn. You have put too much emphasis on material things and on work, work, and more work. Spend some meaningful time with the people who matter most to you. A Sagittarius needs you.
AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18): This is a fine time for you to focus on friends instead of romance, darling. Let the boys chase you. You should be chasing your pals during the holiday season. You need to reinvest in your platonic relationships before they waste away. A Scorpio has something mystical and thrilling to share with you.
PISCES (February 19 to March 20): Uranus will be transiting your house of the past through most of December. You are supposed to learn from your mistakes during this time, dear Pisces, or else you are destined to repeat them. Ruminate on the low points of 2003 and then get ready for a much more constructive and joyous 2004. A Libra plays a key role.
