For The Week Of December 28, 2009-January 3, 2010

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

In your heart and mind there is love. Remember this as circumstances won’t go as planned, and the new twists and turns give your love story even more character than imagined. This will be a true test of your bond with your boo and how you two work together as a team, as you’ll have to take a detour route … Oh, how more sickeningly sweet you two will become.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Ego battles will take front-and-center and could lead you to a standstill with your baby. You’ll both be acting out passive-aggressively and using others as your pawns to get what you want. However, chances are this plan will backfire — others won’t share the priorities you set as intensely. If ever there were a time for a bit more of a sense of humor, it’s this week.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

A big dose of reality is coming for you, making your new year start with a major bang. Seems big news is coming and this could unfurl a whole other path you didn’t expect to take. However, don’t let your imagination run away with you, because chances are you won’t be able to guess this surprise until it happens and when it does, fireworks!

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

A weird case of paranoia will strike, making you doubt choices you want to make — but screw it and throw caution to the wind! Playing it safe has never been your style. Sure, you can be smart, but don’t be a prude. Do what feels good, but just be aware of where to draw limits, and throw in just a touch of prudence to your plans.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

You better know what you want going into this week, because you are set to start a crazy emotional roller coaster ride that will pit circumstance against sentiment, and life as you know it will get super dramatic. The only thing you should know is to trust your gut. Where you will be this week won’t be too foreign, as you’ve always known on some level this existed.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

The stroke of midnight will signify a lot more endings to you than just the prior year. For you, it’ll mark a significant step into a future that relinquishes you from past traumas for good. This is your cycle to set to your liking and the earlier you can begin it, the better. Your independence is your strongest asset now and one you should not think of as lightly anymore.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Having different levels of respect for romantic relationships and friendships is wrong. Respect is respect and if you are not getting it properly, no matter what kind of bond you have, it’s unacceptable. Ask yourself if your honey is acting the way you’d expect your BFF to act. Chances are the answer is no; for that reason, it’s time to recalibrate your brain to redefine better boundaries.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

As an Aries, you have a fab way of just switching gears and taking care of yourself in dire situations, as your survivor instincts are sharper than most. This week, with so many shifts and flakes to deal with, expect to hone your abilities even more, as you’ll have to be the brains behind many of the activities you take — many of which weren’t even your idea to begin with.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

You’re going to have to remind yourself of the bigger picture, as the emotional turmoil and communication mishaps happening at the zero hour will have you wondering why you give so much credit to the wrong people. Dealing with hopes and fears isn’t the sweetest way to end your year, but at the least, you’ll know what you are up against going into 2010.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

If it’s any consolation, there will be lots of rough energies in the air, making it hard for anyone to make this week as grand as it usually tends to be. So, as you tiptoe through your days, keep this in mind: your energy will be dipping into dangerously low levels and your need to judge everyone will be on. Oh well, sometimes one just has to swallow a little bitterness to taste some sweet.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

This is going to be a major win or lose time in terms of your relationship. If things have been hunky-dory, then expect the next turn to be one that will light up your life in magical ways. If things have been sketchy, then expect something to give. Whichever extreme you’re on, expect a few more weeks to fully land back on your feet.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Time to play the mindful observer, as all you’ll need to know is just waiting to happen. If you get a good seat now to watch the show, you’ll find that the thoughts and feelings provoked from this experience will be eye-opening. There will be more than a few new sides to that special someone that’ll have you reexamining what you want from them — which can be good or bad.
