For The Week Of August 16-22, 2010

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Take a quirkier approach to your relationship issues, as going the same old, same old route is just going to make the same arguments pop up and the cycle will never end. If this means taking a time-out, so be it. Whatever the case, newness is the factor, as you’ll need some X-factor to create your balance once again, and you’ll only find it you go off the beaten path.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Forget trying to keep on a schedule, because nothing is going to go as planned right now. That’s not a bad thing, as lots of opportunities for fun and adventure will pop up and make you want to change your course every two minutes. So, unless you want to be on the top of everyone’s sh*t list, stay non-committal this week until the last second.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Odd things are going to start turning you on and although at first you might fight it, when you remove yourself from it, you’ll discover a brewing obsession that isn’t easy to resolve. Don’t worry, this will feel a lot more comical than foreboding, so just loosen up and go with it. You won’t just get the last laugh, but a sweet surprise.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

You’re not the most emotional or sentimental, but this week, expect your heartstrings to get pulled by forces beyond you. This could mean many things, but whatever the case, you will discover that staying put in one place isn’t the worst thing and that you have more to count on than you knew.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

If someone is going to play games, go ahead; play them back, but harder. If they do confusing, you can do it better. If they play evasive, do it like a pro. Sure, playing games never brings the best results, but these are not normal times and sometimes bringing out your worst is how to bring out another’s best. Think of it like a screwed-up way of getting your yin and yang balanced.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

You are the sign of innovation and you aren’t scared to take risks, but when it comes to taking a chance with another’s ideas, that is when you hesitate. Unfortunately, if you never open up, life can get quite staid and your avoidance can come off as condescension. So, if you want things to get serious, it’ll mean giving not just your love, but also your faith.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Time to revamp yourself and your life. Try out a new look; buy new outfits and change up your style. It’s time to shake up your system and work it from a new angle. Realize things are changing and if you want the energy to keep going with it all, it’ll mean refreshing yourself for that leap forward.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Your imagination is going to get the best of you and make you a little wacky, causing accusations to jump out of your mouth faster than you have time to think. Be prepared to have to make a few apologies this week and offer up your humility. While it might feel a bit painful at first, believe it or not, you will somehow find a few pleasures in being on your knees.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Subtle shifts will start to occur this week, making you feel as if your universe is slightly askew. Yes, it’ll feel trippy and at times, a bit confusing, but go with it. Trust that you’ll wind up in a beautiful place and that your wishes are coming true, just not in the way you envisioned. However, if you give in, you’ll find that this new route will be exciting, and with more eye candy.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Let compassion be your friend, because people are morons. Yes, you’re going to have to let many things slide off your back, as dumbass things are going to be said and you’ll have to consider the cumulative efforts of the individuals in question rather than these isolated incidents, even if they add up to more than a few. Too bad for the world — not everyone can be as brilliant as you.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Get ready, as it’s time for your close-up. Seems whoever you have in your life is ready to flaunt you around town and make you feel like the queen of the scene. Since you tend to prefer more privacy, this style of love will shock your system at first. However, with such a fabulous supporting cast, you’ll find it’s easy and oh-so-sexy to soak up the shine.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Your magnetism will have a special, mysterious reserve of power that ignites this week, giving you the ability to attract things you never even dreamed of. The best part: all you have to do is play it cool and let your natural radiance do its thing. Not everything is as it appears; secrets will have a funny way of coming out of the woodwork.
