Extend your holiday, Taurus!
ARIES (March 21 to April 20): It may be the beginning of the year, but this is actually the perfect time for you to look back on what you were doing last March. Were there things you tried to accomplish or let go of that you didn’t follow through on? Uranus is now acting as a catalyst to help you to finish last year’s business. A Gemini can help.
TAURUS (April 21 to May 20): The Sun’s transit through your house of adventure should make this a rollicking time of year for you. While others are going back to work, you should give yourself a little getaway – or at least extend your holiday a tiny bit. A Scorpio wants to get you in bed and keep you in bed, preferably in an exotic locale.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 21): Mars is moving forward in your house of friends and inspiring you to be as direct as possible with your buddies. There’s no reason to hide your feelings. Sarcasm is so 2003. Try cutting to the chase and letting pals know what your turn-ons and turn-offs are. An Aries is a quick study.
CANCER (June 22 to July 22): The full moon on Jan. 7 falls in your sign and puts you in the center of some heavy romantic intrigue. Unfortunately, you may have to choose business over pleasure. Duty calls, so you are going to have to call a Libra back on your own time. Don’t piss off “the man,” darling. “Your” man will wait.
LEO (July 23 to August 22): Money matters go well as the New Year begins, so stop worrying about every last nickel and dime. Work you did last year will start to pay off soon, so don’t panic. A Taurus gives you sound financial advice and some superb sweet talk to boot.
VIRGO (August 23 to September 22): Begin the New Year with confidence, Virgo. You have every right to ask for what you want and to get it. A Gemini needs to be trained in the fine art of being your lover. Be a strict teacher, darling. He’ll thank you for it later.
LIBRA (September 23 to October 22): You are in a more powerful position than you realize, Libra. Don’t be too forceful about a business matter. A little restraint gets you further than a pushy (read: desperate) attitude. An Aquarius will help distract you while you wait to seal the deal.
SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21): Mercury conjunct Pluto in your money house could propel you into another tax bracket. The key is to stay there, Scorpio. Stop gambling with your future; play it cool and conservative for once. A Leo is a blue-chip stock; invest in him.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21): Be careful whom you wish for, sweetie – you just may get him. A fantasy could become a reality if you are willing to take the leap of faith. A Pisces believes in magic just as much as you once did. Rediscover the idealist you used to be.
CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19): Moods may swing during the first half of January, but don’t worry – you’ll land on your feet. You need to take care of an impending crisis in your love life so that you can concentrate on business. Apologize to a Cancer if that will make your life easier. Be gentler with all your loved ones – even if they don’t deserve it!
AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18): The full moon on Jan. 7 falls in your house of health and body issues. Give yourself a day of rest, relaxation, and pleasure – or at least plan one for the near future. Stop leading your life from the head up, and get back in touch with the earthy part of your nature. A Sagittarius can help.
PISCES (February 19 to March 20): Don’t get hysterical about matters that are out of your control, sweetie. Let a work situation unfold slowly. Time is on your side, and soon enough you will be in a position of greater authority. A Capricorn can help you get to where you want to be.
