For The Week Of January 11-17, 2010

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Only you will be to blame if you let low self-esteem plague you into thinking your latest honey is out of your league. Sure, putting another on a pedestal is sweet at first, but after a quick while it gets old and can turn sweet love sour. To avoid this disaster, let him do all the talking first and don’t feel you have to be responsible for anything else, other than feeling good.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

You can only be polite for so long — you are only human. Besides, who is it serving to sweep irritations under the rug? Instead, time for a major breakdown and changing the trajectory of your life and love, as fresh starts are needed STAT. However, don’t get sloppy and think getting mean will help, as clean breaks are worth their weight in gold now.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Your mouth will be moving faster than your brain and there’ll be a few times you’ll find yourself saying things that even you can’t believe. That’s not to say these revelations aren’t true, but you thought they were your secrets to keep. However, despite the embarrassment you might initially feel, by the end of this week, you’ll be giving yourself a big pat on your back for brave work well done.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

There’ll be nothing that can touch you this week. Your self-esteem will be shooting off the charts and giving you a cocky confidence that’ll make you able to approach any cute stranger who has been tickling your fancy. You’ll give him something to go crazy on and, thus, he’ll be irresistible to you. No, this won’t be the week to set out to be “just friends.”

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

Get ready for anything to happen and go with it, because what may seem like a small opportunity that arrives now can erupt into a whole new level of life, love, success and fulfillment of your deepest wishes. So, don’t sabotage yourself and only see the dark side to offers that come your way, because if you do, you’ll be shortchanging yourself.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Finally, your mental space is back and you’ll be able to call your own shots without the red tape. While the deluge of freedom may overwhelm you and make you want to run around bottomless, do be prudent with where you indulge yourself, as the only clincher to your life right now is that your world has gotten smaller and actions you perform now will come back to haunt you.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Just as life is cruising along and your flirty friendship seems to be following the same path, a sudden 180 may occur, making you wonder whom exactly you are about to bag. Seems this week, mysteries will arise and some detective work will begin. While it’ll take some effort to control your obsessive nature, realize what you uncover may make you veer onto the platonic route.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

This week your relationship and career will be fighting for the top priority slot in your life as an incredible opportunity is due to arrive. Unfortunately, it’ll also come just in time to circumvent a more serious turn in your love life — it may take you far away or make you preoccupied for an undetermined time. Either or, needy hanger-oners won’t be tolerated, so let’s hope he behaves.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Not every moment of your love life can be perfect, and woe is the first time you realize that your latest relationship isn’t as idyllic as you thought. Lucky for you, you can still see beyond this rocky moment if you keep your sense of humor intact. Seems all you need is to show a little of your optimism and that leap of faith will take both of you far and on to the next step.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Chemistry is a beautiful thing. When it’s so strong it almost makes you forget you have to do anything but lie back and look pretty — but don’t get lazy or react like you have no upbringing. You’ve been down this route enough times to know how it ends if you ignite the spark too soon, so be more discriminating. If he’s worth it, the taste will be gourmet with some anticipation.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Your family can’t agree with everything you do, but has that stopped you before? This week, don’t let their voices in your head stop you from going after what makes you tingle in places that matter. This is your time to cross new boundaries and break out of theirs. What suits you best can only be found far from their comfort zone and they are just going to have to deal.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Best to stick to old worn routines now, as your brain is going a bit haywire and communications with the outer world won’t be at its optimum. To ensure cruising at an OK speed, with minimal scarring, best to stay in your comfort zone and indulge yourself in all that is familiar — and if anyone asks any more of you, know they obviously don’t know what is best for you.
