For The Week Of June 28-July 4, 2010

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Be careful of ruling too hard with your iron fist, as in demanding too high of expectations, making it impossible for anyone to keep up with you. Call it being efficient or call it a defense mechanism, whichever it is, slow it down for just a moment and let the other catch up. Besides, it’ll feel nice with something hot on your tail again.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

The frustration will seem palpable this week, as it seems as if you are always taking two steps forward and then three back. Life isn’t easy and sorry, there isn’t much you can do. Thankfully, you are the sign with tons of patience and grace under fire, and if you keep holding steady, you’ll find your just rewards are soon coming around the corner.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Forget standards, because the more you pile on to your “must have list,” the more you are boxing yourself in. Not to say you’re being too rigid, but you are white knuckling it enough to avoid jumping into anything else that’s vaguely different than what you envision. That can be your own method of subconscious self-sabotage. Just saying…

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Time to own up to the truth and clear up old issues that keep popping up. Yes, time to humble yourself and offer up some apologies, as they are due. Not to say you have to beg, but some humility would be nice. Doing so will be quite the endearing way to open up your baby to you in just that special way that’ll make all feel new again.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

You’ve spoken enough. Now, it’s time for your boo to have the platform and share his or her two cents. Yes, time for your honey to let loose and share their innermost ideals, complaints, and ideas for what is happening between the two of you. While it might sound harsh at times, if you want to move ahead, you’re going to have to listen.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Just because you’re in love doesn’t mean it’s okay to blindly go wherever your honey wants to go. While some ideas are totally up your alley, the rest won’t be music to your ears. To avoid obliterating your boundaries, speak up now or forever hold your peace, because it only takes one little lie now to start a snowball effect into misery.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Your love life is going to be entering a whole new zone where words will flow freely and emotions will be clarified, putting you both on the same page and creating a structure that will make day-to-day life more romantic than ever. While you thought routine was for the birds, you’ll be singing a new song as you find out it’s for lovebirds.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

You might be feeling the love, but you won’t have time to show it, as your priorities elsewhere will make your honey low on the priority totem pole. However, as you already do too much in your relationship, consider this a nice change of pace, as you can now let honey flex his TLC muscles — and they do need work, as chances are they’re a bit atrophied by now.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Chances are your love life has been less than satisfactory as of late, but this week, tides will turn and you’ll have much to celebrate, as unexpected twists are coming, turning your affairs from drab to fab. Yes, time to clean up the boudoir, pull out the lingerie and buy the jumbo box of condoms, because finally there’ll be a gentlemen caller or two who will know how to ring your bell.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

You’ve thrown the ball over to the other court and now all you can do is wait. While chances are you won’t get what you want on a silver platter ASAP, you have at least opened up a dialogue and now you can work the strategies. No, it’s not the most romantic journey, but sometimes it’s the destination that’ll make up for it all.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Your brain will be shooting your mouth off faster than you will be able to control, but the good news is that the things that will fly out will be just what is needed to be said to that certain someone. Whether this is setting things in motion or back on track, rest assured that fate is taking the reins now and all will be back to your liking in just a few.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

You might be feeling a bit more emotional these days, causing sudden outbursts that you can’t control and making you look like a mess. However, if you have the right support, then don’t worry about how this comes across, because when the chips are down and the chemistry is right, that certain someone will love you even more during times like these.
