SAGITTARIUS (Nov 23 - Dec 21)
Happy birthday Sagittarius! This is going to be an unusual year. In 2010 you want to spend more time at home. Creativity and a desire to express yourself. New friends; you need to aim for balance in your life. Stay in touch with reality to avoid self-deception and be aware of the needs of your family. Control your spending. There are times that seem to go smoothly and other times the going is rough. This has to do with the planet's movement through the signs and houses of your solar horoscope. Also, you will be of a more spiritual frame of mind.
CAPRICORN (Dec 22 - Jan 20)
You have been pretty proud of yourself lately, especially if you have been carrying on a secret relationship. But you can't keep this balancing act in the air forever. The only way you can save face on both ends is to admit to both sides what you've been doing. It is the only honorable way to solve the problem. Distance yourself from those who tend to see things in terms of black and white, and pull back on your own tendency to be negative.
AQUARIUS (Jan 21 - Feb 19)
Due to the never-ending carousel of changes at your job, you have discovered that you are working with a whole new slew of people, many of which you have clicked with. You've been feeling bored with your old circle of friends, so why not take the initiative and throw a party for your burgeoning new circle of friends. If only in memory, someone or something from your past could resurface. You may feel compelled to get to the bottom of a mystery.
PISCES (Feb 20 - March 20)
Just like most Pisces, you are excellent at getting the most from the people around you - when it comes to solving arguments or drawing on an unbiased third party, people tend to come to you right away. But over the next few days, you will have nothing but frustration from your closest friends and work buddies. You may have a chance to steer your mate away from some unwise or foolish action.
ARIES (March 21 - April 20)
Lately those days are rare where you roll out of bed and everything appears to be going your way. You have more energy than normal and your work focus is above average. Don't let this time go to waste; make the most of the extra insight you have by working through problems with your partner or coworkers. A playful influence makes children happy. Enthusiasm rules. Business concerns are fortunate.
TAURUS (April 21 - May 21)
Just like most workplaces, sometimes yours has more tension than it really needs. You will find that this week is going to be especially bad for workplace drama. Of course, this isn't always easy, so don't get caught off guard if you tell a coworker to do something and you get a face full of attitude. Financial concerns will plague some. Excess can be expensive. But what's the point of crying over spilled milk?
GEMINI (May 22 - June 21)
Unlike so many of the people around you, you have always had a way with words. Things like traffic tickets and fights with bosses always seem to happen to other people, and not you. You will need every bit of your silver tongue this week as workplace and personal strife will be at the forefront. And if a person matters to you, you may have to invest more time and energy on this relationship.
CANCER (June 22 - July 22)
It seems like work has been dominating your time lately and your partner has been acting more and more irritable. It is time you switched the focus of your life on your other half, while you still have them in your life. If you don't give them something, you will find yourself single sooner rather than later. Lazy self-indulgence has its place. And if someone at home wants to make the decisions, you won't be able to abide by some of them.
LEO (July 23 - Aug 22)
If there is one thing a Leo doesn't do, it is second-guess himself. But when it comes to money matters, you might want to put away your money and wait for a clearer picture to develop. Now is no time to be starting any huge investments, but things are looking a little better in the near future. And in important partnerships, choose your words carefully. And beware temptations. It's easy to overindulge in the search for pleasure.
VIRGO ( Aug 23 - Sept 23)
You have been presented lately with what seems to be a genuine romantic interest. Unlike so many recent trysts, this one appears to have legs and you are thinking about taking the leap. But before you do, you might want to check how much water is really in that pool. Things may not be what they seem. Contact relatives. Send notes and messages. Keep private thoughts to yourself.
LIBRA (Sept 24 - Oct 23)
Your desk has been feeling a little cramped lately and you are dying to get some physical exercise. Follow that urge to your local community center. You can have some fun and meeting new friends at the same time. You've got nothing to lose but pounds. Focus on the love that's in your heart, not the disagreements that are active now. Make a commitment. Passions are elevated. Avoid rude folks who insist on their way.
SCORPIO (Oct 24 - Nov 22)
You might want to set your alarm a half hour earlier than you usually do. Your course is going to be full of metaphysical potholes this week that have the potential to trap you if you don't look out. Keep your eyes open for possible topics that could spark a fight. Satisfaction belongs to those who are bold. And if the nesting urge is strong, enjoy the comforts of home. An unusual social event, not your usual fare, will fit the bill.
