The Air Signs
Gemini, Libra, Aquarius

A new door will open for you on Monday. Consider walking through it. Your intuition will soar on Tuesday. Follow your hunches. Your ruler Venus is quincunx Uranus on Wednesday. Your energy will be scattered. Try to concentrate when doing tasks. A life lesson may come your way on Wednesday evening. Remember, experience is the best teacher. A colleague may become overbearing so be sure not to make a rash decision on Thursday. Think before you take action. This person may hand you a list of demands! Stay alert on Friday. You’ll need to be on your toes in a certain situation. You’ll know you’ve overcome a rival on Friday evening. Mercury turns direct in your zone of competitors. Be magnanimous in victory! A loved one will behave erratically and be in an extravagant mood on Saturday. Try to be patient. You’ll be eager to transform your life on Sunday. You’ll be treated to a night on the town!

Your Love Week—Air Signs: Notice and remember everything about that special someone. And if you still don’t know him or her that well, just be sure you don’t cross the line from thoughtful to creepy! Over-the-top behavior will attract some and alienate others. Keep this up if you’re looking for intense romance with extreme people. Get a grip if you’re hoping for a more stable relationship. Share what’s reasonable and observe how your generosity is or isn’t repaid – it will speak volumes about any possible future with this person. Try being friends before pushing to become lovers. When you’re attracted to possible lovers in transition or on the rebound, accept what comes your way, even when it wants to turn into a high-drama love story. You’re too smart to throw everything away on someone who’s unavailable. Then finally when it happens, it will come from a deeper, more sincere place. Don’t worry. The right one will come along soon enough.

The Fire Signs
Aries, Leo, Sagittarius

Daydreaming will be your favorite activity on Monday. The Sun in Leo opposes Neptune and our moral principles may be tested. It’s time to recharge your mental batteries. Follow your conscience in all circumstances. A relationship may get back on track on Tuesday. A loved one will be ready to make amends. Money matters will be of prime importance on Tuesday. New opportunities will emerge through a social contact on Thursday. An associate may aid your career efforts. Try to be proactive. It isn’t wise to procrastinate. Deal with problems when they arise. Take a realistic view of your finances on Friday. Don’t spend money you haven’t yet earned. The Moon squares Jupiter on Saturday. Temptation will be strong! You may feel agitated on Saturday evening. Remember, you can’t control all life events. Practice deep breathing when stressed. Don’t try to win the approval of others on Sunday. Just be yourself!

Your Love Week—Fire Signs: Let the other person decide how your date will go. His or her whims may give you a better idea of who you’re dealing with. But remember that saying yes to everything could also set a dangerous precedent. Be clear about your own limits or desires and then see where things stand. Watch what you say in the grip of love or lust. Maybe you mean it at the time, but others have longer memories. If you’re genuinely interested in someone, learn about him or her as a person. Hanging out together could be more informative than a high-pressure date. Tempting as it is to show off an ideal version of yourself, just be the real you. Even if you’re well known in the dating scene, others need to learn firsthand who they’re dealing with. It’s a good way to narrow down your prospects. Whether or not things work out romantically, at least everyone’s curiosity will be satisfied.

The Water Signs
Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces

A health problem might flare up on Monday. Take steps to boost your wellbeing. Consider adjusting your diet. You may encounter a confusing situation as well, on Monday. Separating fact from fiction won’t be easy. A new friend may pop into your life on Tuesday. This person will share your interests. You may be tempted to idealize a loved one. Try to look at this person clearly. A life dilemma may prove to be complex on Wednesday. A loved one may feel neglected. Consider if you’ve been ignoring this individual. You may need to get some expert advice in the matter. You’ll have lots of pep on Friday. It’s a great time to tackle a time-consuming project. Leave the past behind on Friday evening. Concentrate on building a new future. You’ll be eager to achieve a goal and a wish may finally come true on Sunday.

Your Love Week—Water Signs: Find out if the one you want is available or even interested – you may save yourself some heartache. When you get lost in someone, there’s no room in your mind for anything else. Consider whether this relationship has a future, or if it’s even a relationship. When you totally rearrange your schedule for this person, will he or she appreciate the gesture? Make your own status or desires clear if someone wants you. Apologize to individuals from your past to feel the relief of closure. Even if you don’t want them in your life again, it’s best to get everything spelled out and settled. Another way to deal with regrets is never repeating that mistake. The richest kind of romance has an element of learning. If it’s all green lights from here, your friends might wonder where you went. At least send a text to let them know you’re OK and having the time of your life.

The Earth Signs
Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn

An associate may ask for financial aid on Monday. Be sure this person needs help before opening your wallet. Reserve your economic resources for worthy causes. Positive vibrations will surround you on Tuesday. The Sun enters Virgo. It’s time to celebrate! Don’t spread yourself too thin on Wednesday. Remember to smell the roses in your garden. Venus trines Pluto on Thursday: Issues with a friend may arise. Finding common ground won’t be easy. It may be wise to agree to disagree. Achieving success will become your first priority. A loved one will give you good advice on Friday. Listen closely to this person. A flash of insight will pop into your head and a relationship may go in a different direction on Saturday. You’ll resolve a dilemma. Your sense of personal power will be strong on Sunday. Rely on your inner strength as you take charge of a life situation.

Your Love Week—Earth Signs: Until you ask someone out, you can only guess what the answer will be. Stay relaxed and confident, and eventually you will get lucky. If you’ve been striking out with strangers, consider dating people you already know. Whether someone new is really into you or you’ve been chasing the wrong person, wake up to the reality of your situation. If you’re finally getting over your ex, the field is wide open. It’s fun to mix elements of surprise and familiarity. Plus, you won’t have to work as hard with somebody who already has an idea of what you are and aren’t. Even when you’re feeling mutual attraction, the other party might have different ideas about how to proceed, if at all. Maybe you can change his or her mind, maybe not. There are better matches out there if you go looking for them honestly and bravely. This whole process isn’t about reinventing yourself. It’s about rediscovering yourself!
