For The Week Of December 27-January 2, 2010

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Obligation is a dirty word, but it’s a part of life when you have to deal with others, especially family. This is the week you have to make some fast decision on how to cope with drawing the line between coddling the needy to actually helping out with something worthy. This might be your time to start with the tough love, or you’ll begin your year with a load of resentment.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Have an open heart, as that’s all you can do with when dealing with a frustrating personality that doesn’t seem to be on solid ground. Think of it as points for your karma and just invite them in, as that is all the responsibility you need to claim. At the least, it’ll push your reputation that much closer to sainthood, and in that special someone’s eyes, your kindhearted gestures will be like an aphrodisiac.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

This year will flash before you in a majorly sentimental way this week, giving you clarity that you hadn’t had in a while, as now you truly can get some perspective on your inner power and sort out the direction you want to put yourself in. While it might not make you so physically action-packed this week, in your mind, you will be soaring to some amazing places.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Not all years have to start with a bang, because if you insist on one this upcoming New Year’s, you will get one, but it won’t be to your liking. Sorry to say, time to curb your enthusiasm and be willing to take the passenger seat, as barked-out orders now won’t be received kindly. Not to say you aren’t right, but this just isn’t your time to get your way peacefully.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

You’ll feel your emotional boundaries stretched beyond, making you wonder how far you’d go for love. Seems if you can eke out these last bits of compassion, then you’re good to go, as this is as far as it’ll get. However, while some stretches can make you feel good, despite the pain, others may permanently break you. Time to find out what you can do and accept fate accordingly.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Nothing like sudden chaos to find out where one’s loyalty lies. Yes, amid a weird series of events, this is going to be a revealing period when you’ll learn how bold or base another’s love is (or perhaps yours). Picking sides and the degree of courage shown will become sources of inspiration or the lack thereof will be the start of an extradition. Yes, cliff-handing scenarios dead ahead!

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Although you can get down with being in the limelight, this week the attention you will be getting won’t be to your liking, as not everyone will be out to praise you. You know it; haters are going to be out and about. So resist giving into their sneaky ploys to undermine. Because if you can keep your head held high throughout, respect will ultimately be yours.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

You may have grown to be a certain way, but that doesn’t mean the rules can’t changes and you can’t break routines. Yes, seems a clash of agendas will be happening, throwing you into a precarious place where you might doubt who you are and whom you chose to be with, but so is life, and if you say “no” now, you will be missing out on quite an experience.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

No news is not good news. Realize now, the longer you wait for a response in the dead silence the more you are submitting your power towards something or someone that isn’t after your best interests. This is the time communication is essential, even if it seems a bit rickety.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Making peace may mean a matter of humbling yourself and trading in a bit of your integrity for the cuddles, but with an exchange rate that can feel so good, you might just sell it all down the river. No matter, as soon as the clock strikes midnight, it’s all about new beginnings anyway and residual negative effects from the prior year, no matter how new, will cease to exist.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Schedules are your enemy this week, as they will only bring frustration and agony to your life. Best to just fly by the seat of your pants and take it moment by moment, as who can tell how they will feel in the varying situations that come around? If you have nothing to compare it to, it will feel like paradise. Otherwise, damn those expectations, because they are your devil.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Things will have a funny way of working out, if you maintain a sense of humor. Yes, love matters now will take totally bizarre non-linear paths that won’t be easily decipherable, but that is part of the fun, if you see it that way. Believe it, the last laugh is all yours and it’ll be one that is full and robust, enough to fill you several times over … however, on a layaway plan.
