Your Friskyscopes For The Week Of August 20-26, 2012

Leo (July 23-August 22): You’ll need to be smarter and two steps ahead of your honey to get lovin’ now. They’ll be way more moody and darker than usual, which produces great energy for some hot romance the way you like but are too shy to usually ask for. Get obsessed and let it ride, because the pay out will be one smokin’ hot situation that will energize you for weeks!

Virgo (August 23-September 22): Exaggerate your tiredness to your baby and get sympathy to work for you. This is not the time to whip out all your skills to make life that much happier. Playing the victim can give you a high like none other; plus, getting your boo to serve you will be an awakening that will benefit you for months to come.

Libra (September 23-October 22): By nature, you are a visual person. You care about aesthetics and anyone who is going to write it off as just being shallow doesn’t get you. We all have different quirks and yours is beauty—and your definition of it. Typically, you are a bit more fashion-forward than the masses, and anyone who doesn’t recognize that can go ahead and think themselves ugly.

Scorpio (October 23-November 21): Suspense comes naturally to you and you use it to guard and protect. It’s strategy—even if you think you’re being open, you’re likely not. Yes, you’re a hard nut to crack, not one for the insecure and slow. Only someone willing to love with grand gestures is going to cut it this week. So, don’t give in for anything less.

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21): You have every right to get angry and let it out. Who cares about projecting some perfect image of yourself? No one even notices. If they do, they likely know to ignore that act and focus on the real you underneath. Let down your guard and show off all your colors – even if that means seeing red. That’s right, whatever you do, do it 110 percent.

Capricorn (December 22-January 19): Be careful of drama queens ruining your mood. Forget those people. Just because they know how to push their agenda on to you, doesn’t mean you have to crack under the pressure. Don’t make this your learned response. Don’t let the squeaky wheel get any oil, because your juices are best paying your piper. Resist the madness.

Aquarius (January 20-February 19): You are a sucker for anyone with manners and an ounce of intriguing swagger, in whatever way you define it. However, be warned not to go out with too much cash on hand and keep those credit cards at your friend’s apartment because the oxytocin haze of sugar momma fever can strike you down. Be careful of those smart and evasive weirdoes you cross paths with this week.

Pisces (February 20-March 20): Draw the line on a bad habit. This is your week for new routines that promote happiness and success. The tire marks are showing on you at this point and it’s a matter of time before you quit this bitch before it quits you. If the results are the latter, you know it’s not going to be very nice. So, if anything, do it for your images. It’s something.

Aries (March 21-April 19): Emotions are going to be running high, so get ready to slow down your breathing and dive into the eye of the storm. There is nothing you can do to change the course of events, but accept this is a part of life and be appreciative of what you have and had, rather then dwelling on the sad stuff. If ever there were a time for your graciousness, it’ll be this week.

Taurus (April 20-May 20): You’re going to have to cut some breaks for the people around your boo. Just because you love your honey, doesn’t mean you have to love the people they associate with. Yes, it’s easy to judge, but if you can’t help it, try to at least show some compassion. The change in strategy will shock you, and can even make you privy to more info that could explain all.

Gemini (May 21-June 20): Career achievements and finally feeling as if you’re headed in some kind of direction will sweep you away into a land of bliss and magic. Hold tight, the ride is going to get even more intense, because now that you have all your ducks in a row, it’s time to put all those ideas into action. Prepare to see what sorts of transformations are about to unfurl.

Cancer (June 21-July 22): The truth is going to come out and you can either get excited or look for the next hiding spot. No matter, a cathartic moment is coming and will have you making poignant decisions that really set a new standard in your life. Be your own authority figure and claim the right to follow your dreams on your own terms.
