VIRGO (Aug 23-Sept 23)
Happy Birthday, Virgo! Since the last two years taught you the value of patience and self-discipline, in the year ahead your intuitive abilities will be in tune and the serenity you are seeking will give you positive results to deal with any problem for the rest of your life. Pay attention to health, because Jupiter and Neptune trigger illnesses that are difficult to diagnose. Virgo is an earth sign, associated with the material world, practicality and dependability. Avoid being critical of yourself and others. In May 2010 you may deal with some serious issues, but also you may find love while traveling.
LIBRA (Sept 24-Oct 23)
You might feel it's your right to get what you want, but don't act on doubt or fear that comes from a karmic wake. A magnetic appeal draws people to you. Speak your mind and have a heart-opening about shared hopes. Your emotional nature will be stimulated. Forget practical concerns. Avoid offending those who wish you well.
SCORPIO (Oct 24-Nov 22).
You can generate your own luck. Revealing conversations help you cement ties with people closer to you. What's evident to you may not be obvious to others. Think before you speak to avoid an argument. Steer clear of activities that can get you into trouble. Read a novel. Break from routine. Well-meaning advice comes from a relative or friend.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov 23-Dec 21)
The universe will provide you with means to do some traveling. Save a bit of cash for sudden problems. Government matters, career, and popularity are in focus, with frustration from old obligations. You will have options such that it's hard to make any decisions. Use tact in your social life and make a clear choice between home and professional life.
CAPRICORN (Dec 22-Jan 20)
Trap in unrealistic fantasies and releasing physical limitations is in store for you. Avoid doubts interfere with plans. Listen and let others do the talking. Stand your ground with a competitor when it comes to business. Calls, meetings, and some travel with misunderstandings and disappointments will make you deal with this celestial drama.
AQUARIUS (Jan 21-Feb 19)
Your intuition can point to new profit-making talents. But the pleasure-me love sector will make you forget about money. Work on a tendency to overdo eating, drinking, work, etc., and steer clear of unorthodox money schemes. Don't reveal confidential ideas. A new ground needs more work. Follow your desire.
PISCES (Feb 20-March 20)
Try to select strong partners so you don't get into that repeating pattern of relationship obligations. If you are single, chances are that you'll meet someone who'll be in your life for a long time. Venus and Jupiter with all their talents will help you to an extremely romantic start. A co-worker may be on the look-out for a new blessed beginning.
ARIES (March 21-April 20)
Prepare yourself - if you've been seeing someone who's involved with some else and the secret comes to surface. And if someone from the past asks for a second chance, learn to say "no thank you." Be wise with money and let your spirit of optimism lead you out from the frustrating responsibilities. Compromise and cooperate in order to keep a relationship healthy.
TAURUS (April 21-May21)
Avoid trouble with loved ones in your need to have it your own way vs. others' independent rights. If you feel unappreciated, perhaps it's time to give a little and get to the root of any problem. You need a "review" time for all your goals. In a need for a dreamy romantic note, pick up the phone and see what's going on. It can't hurt. Friends support you.
GEMINI (May 22-June 21)
Adapting to change is one of your best qualities, but be sensitive. Venus in your house of communications, adding attraction of lovely attention your way. Your idealism isn't shared by everyone, so work out to sort some differences and you may have changes in relationships. Avoid interpreting things too personally.
CANCER (June 22-July 22)
You need self-control to deal with confusing and unexpected social and business plans. Avoid insecurity when handling domestic and family plans, and don't make any final decisions until the end of September, even if you're agitated to act quickly. If necessary try to cooperate. Use your ability to rise to high spirits.
LEO (July 23-Aug 22)
You have some lessons from Jupiter, Neptune and Chiron on the relationship axis. Review things and around the 17th of September you'll be making good adjustments. Your feelings will be inconsistent, so focus on your second house. It rules matters linked with earnings, personal possessions, and financial deals. Avoid mixing money matters with personal affairs.
