For The Week Of April 19-25, 2010

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Love is a twisted psychological game that often makes no sense and, too bad for you, this week it goes up another degree of insanity. What you hear isn’t what you should pay attention to, not to say it has to be bad, but it won’t be correct. To make it through as unscathed as you can, do take it all in with a grain of salt, or the bitterness will be too much to bear.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

When you truly speak your mind, it’s inevitable that you’re going to ruffle some feathers. However, if you don’t start revealing your needs now, you won’t be doing yourself any favors. The result will be you getting the short end of the stick, as a certain prospect won’t know how to fill in your blanks. Steering your fate now requires your words.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Promises you have made will come back to haunt you. A slip of the mind and a sudden opportunity clash and you need to choose between obligation and desire. Yes, your morals are going to be getting in the way, pressing on all your guilt buttons in a very irritating way. However, do realize being perfect is a thankless job.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

This is your time to slowly start new routines and get more focused. Although you’re better running at maximum levels, this week you need to chill out and get back some perspective. All those ideas you’ve been wanting to set into motion need some more thought before you let them loose, so prepare now and ensure your success later.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

Just because he’s pretty doesn’t mean he’s right. Be wary of getting sucked into something less than ideal with someone who looks the part but can’t truly play that role. As it goes, red flags will be lighting up, so recognize them when they appear. Otherwise, talking yourself out of them now won’t result in a pretty sight later.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

It’s sexy to disagree — tension will make you hot and bothered with that certain someone. However, as much as you want to break free and not be consumed by these aggravations, you won’t be able to help it, and it’ll be through this weird obsessing that’ll come even stranger passions.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Listening is a skill you’re going to have to pull out and perfect, as reading in-between the lines and mixing in your own intuition properly will be key to unlocking your baby’s babble this week. In other words, it’s once again that unfortunate time when a deluge of passive-aggressive behaviors is coming and it’ll be time to play mommy again.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Regret is going to be wrapping your brain into quite a little tizzy, as you have to go forward on matters that didn’t have to be as serious but are so because of actions you set into motion in the past. Yes, drama, but whatever the case, this little nostalgic jaunt will get rid of any “what ifs” that have haunted you and will ultimately set you free.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

This is your time of year and no one should ruin your parade, least of all you. Put all that self-doubt and fear aside, no matter how hard you have to beat it back. Right now you are your own worst enemy, trying to dissect more out of a situation than is there. Seriously, no matter how hard you try to dig, some matters just aren’t that deep.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

No matter how easily you see answers, it doesn’t mean everyone else involved is going to have the same clarity. Sorry to say you are going to have to be patient for that someone to get with the program. That’s not to say they’re dumb, but their priorities aren’t the same as yours now. If you want it to sync up, unfortunately it’ll be you who has to do the waiting.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Be careful what you say and to whom, because not everyone will be accountable for his or her judgment and ability to protect you. If something really is so precious to you, keep it to yourself until you are feeling more secure, because, as of now, airing your vulnerabilities will only lead you to being open for haters to attack and try to destroy.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Show some graciousness and watch the rewards come on in. While you’re the best at many things, you don’t always have to take home the prize. This week, let losing be your secret; let your baby think he knows better. Although he’ll initially be the only one to actually buy his own heroicness, the epic payback will make you a believer.
