Week of July 12, 2006

ARIES (Mar. 20 - Apr. 20) The time is right to reach for those relationship hopes and dreams you’ve been harboring. Don’t wait, things get harder in the fall, so now is the time to jump all over those feelings and take some chances in matters of the heart. The power you hold now is also good for reaching toward career goals and anything else you may want to create a goal about.

TAURUS (Apr. 20 - May 21) A great deal of energy is available right now, and deciding what to do with it is very important. If you choose to sit on the couch and not use this energy, someone will undoubtedly use it against you. Power struggles are possible and likely if you don’t choose to use the energy yourself. Why not put that energy to good use and get some things accomplished. Get physical and DO something.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 22) Mercury is retrograde for the next couple of weeks, which you often feel hampered by, so take your time with things and when something becomes complex or you feel resistance you may want to move in a different direction instead of beating your head against the wall. Some alone time may be useful so you can get everyone else’s thoughts out of your head and remember your own mind.

CANCER (June 22 - July 23) You really will need to remember to stop talking and really, really listen to what is being said by others. Catch yourself in the middle of some long-winded rant and make yourself just stop. This week is best spent listening and hearing others, rather than going off about something and finding out you had no idea what was really going on.

LEO (July 23 - Aug. 23) This has been a tough time for some of you Leos. Saturn in your sign has marked a time of growing up and we all know how you feel about that idea! Just remember that growing up doesn’t mean that you have to stop having fun; it does mean that it is time for you to take hold of your life and come into your power and stand in your truth. It may be hard work — yet it is worth it.

VIRGO (Aug. 23 - Sept. 23) This really is a time of healing; it just may be the difficult part of the healing process. Not all the time has to be difficult; there just may be moments that seem harder than they ‘have’ to be. All of this is part of the healing that is going on, so be patient with yourself and others and how things are unfolding. Everything is going to work out, just embrace the healing and trust the process.

LIBRA (Sept. 23 - Oct. 23) Beautiful places and things, gardens and music, social gatherings and a lovely bottle of wine sum up this week’s energy. You have much power at your disposal right now and you are changing somewhere deep inside, so embrace social situations that allow you to experience new things and people and feel your power and enjoy yourself!

SCORPIO (Oct. 23 - Nov. 22) Yes, you are the sexy sign of the Zodiac and this week with no doubt proves that to you. It’s like your sex radar has been tuned to high and the whole world seems ‘hot’ (and I don’t mean temperature). This is a great time for connecting with someone, yet it is also a great time to accomplish many things on your ‘to do’ list, so why not use this high energy in many ways rather than getting in a rut!

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21) You may want to spend some time with a Taurus and work out some of the energy that is building within you. Your desire for change and freedom is high at the same time that movement is restricted and responsibilities are all around you — a bit of a conflict. If you can slow down your pace, you will be better able to work within the restrictions toward your goals for change.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 21 - Jan. 20) Here’s some fortune cookie wisdom for you this week Capricorn — ‘inch by inch life’s a cinch, yard by yard life is hard.’ Try and stick to this slow and steady progress rather than trying to do too much at once. Sometimes you feel invincible and do too much, so pay attention! You also want to make sure you don’t decide to do nothing just because it will take too long to do things slowly. Think — ‘inch by inch’!

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 - Feb. 19) Go ahead, go have fun. Take the time to do everything you’ve wanted to do that you’ve been putting off because some responsibility or another has been distracting you. Use this time well and really enjoy yourself. Also bring your optimism and passion to work or relationship matters and see how you sparkle. Others see you through a really good lens, so make an impression!

PISCES (Feb. 19 - Mar. 20) The details of life are not where you want to be directing your energy right now. You may have to from time to time, yet not all the time. During those in-between times do things you love. Do something creative and interesting. Spend time with those you care about and share some special moments. Then when you have to deal with those pesky details it will feel worth it.

NOTE: If you were born at the end or beginning of a sign, read the sign before and after your birthday.
