For The Week Of July 27-August 2, 2009

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Gaining dominance is a never-ending battle you face, because as you see it, no one is ever going to be as smart as you — and if anyone tries to prove differently, they are going to have to prepare to conquer a winnable war. Of course, if you’re with the right person, he’ll be smart enough to let you have your illusions and use your tension for the bedroom. Enough said.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Nurturing isn’t a bad thing and accepting it doesn’t make you any less of a person. You would like to think you can rule your problems single-handedly or at least appear to — why? Plus, remember you are the sign of partnership. Things work better in twos for you. So, as this week’s climate gets turbulent, don’t be shy about taking that hand that is reaching out to you.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Your mushy insides get the better of you, as that someone comes crawling back on his hands and knees begging for forgiveness. Despite the fact that you’ll be thinking “I told you so!” and will want to make him crawl through hell for your affections, don’t let your cruelness get the better of you. Torture just a little. Then let him show you their penance where it’ll really matter.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

You’ve never been one to hold back your opinions — don’t stop now. Sure, you won’t be seeing eye-to-eye with your honey on several controversial topics and it’ll make you wonder about the stick up his butt. However, this sparring works out beautifully in breaking each other down to bite-size morsels that’ll taste delicious at the end of the day.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

Let your boo do all the talking this week, as you’ll find many sweet secrets and surprises that’ll turn up the heat for you in a major way. Seems that despite that calm demeanor and that way he has about letting you always get your way doesn’t make him a chump, but a true gentleman,. You’ll find out there is a method behind his madness.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Stay busy this week. Otherwise, if you give yourself too much time — taking every piece of information you hear and analyzing it to its worst-case scenario –it’ll f-up your stride in your current relationship. This week, trust that what you hear is what you get and trying to make it otherwise will truly be all in your head. Don’t be your own worst enemy.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Things will be coming out of your mouth faster than you will be able to think. This will mean offending others and perhaps charming a few with the unmitigated emotions that spill from you like a faucet with poetry. No matter, there is nothing you can do about it and no reason to apologize for the truth. In fact, let this week be a lesson in how life can really be.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Time to draw some new boundaries and accept you are territorial. Although there are plenty of times you feel generous and open, this won’t be one of them. In fact, this may even be the time you want to tally up the “What have you done for me lately?” scoreboard and realize that you have been getting the short end of the stick for way too long now.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Your mind will be split, as your emotions and your logic run off in two different directions with seemingly no way of being reconciled. This will mean something or someone will be pissing you off, but intriguing you all the while. Oh yeah, love can be a total bitch. Say sayonara to any control this week, as it won’t be happening.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Time to put your money where you mouth is concerning how committed you are to your emotions. When it comes down to it, sitting around waiting for the world to come to you isn’t going to happen and you’ll have to pick up the slack by breaking out of your comfort zone psychologically and monetarily. Trust, though: goods things will happen when you stop making excuses.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

New ideas will pop into your head like brilliant flashes of genius — don’t be scared to share those visions. There will be more than a few ideas that’ll work out beautifully and inspire teamwork, which, in turn, will work nicely in laying down emotional groundwork that will feel solid enough for you to want to rest your head on.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Don’t let paranoia ruin your buzz. While you will be feeling some sketchy thoughts on an intuitive level, nothing is as bad as you want to envision. Best to nip everything in the bud by confronting and voicing your fears as they happen. Chances are those little neuroses can be just the gateway to open more love and light into your world.
