Your Friskyscopes For The Week Of January 14-20, 2012

Capricorn (December 22-January 19): You’ve had enough of the reindeer games and are all about getting ahead — but slow it down. Take in the scenery. This time is about you, which means don’t be your own slave master. Book in hours for fun and relaxation. Reboot. To get on top now will mean taking in quality “me” time first, so adhere. (Check out your 2013 astrology forecast here!)

Aquarius (January 20-February 19): Winter’s seasonal affective disorder is usually a bitch, but this month, you’ll have so much drama in the love department – in particular, getting in arguments and settling scores — that you’ll be hotter than Mount Sainte Helen. No slumps for you now, as your raging bull is moving full steam ahead and won’t be taking no from anyone. (Check out your 2013 astrology forecast here!)

Pisces (February 20-March 20): Don’t go crazy reading into everything, as if there has to be a deeper meaning. If you do, you’ll be met with major disappointment, as the superficialness of this life is the only thing that you’ll find. If it could even be a little profound this week, it would, but it won’t, so accept it as boring—but of course, ennui does have its own romance that you can love too. (Check out your 2013 astrology forecast here!)

Aries (March 21-April 19): Freedom comes at a higher price now, which may make you extra grouchy. However, this isn’t a time to let yourself sink deep into the abyss. Instead, see it as an opportunity to revamp your sense of authority and take the reigns in a more diplomatic, but assertive, way. All eyes are on you now, so hold your own. (Check out your 2013 astrology forecast here!)

Taurus (April 20-May 20): There are cryptic messages hidden throughout your week, making you have to ask uncomfortable questions. Whatever. Nothing ventured, nothing gained. So, to avoid turning into a doormat, work your brains even harder and look inward. After all, wanting knowledge isn’t a bad thing and if anyone stops you from it, they are likely toxic for you. (Check out your 2013 astrology forecast here!)

Gemini (May 21-June 20): Retreating doesn’t have to cause harm, if you play your cards right and prepare in advance. You can learn a lot from laying low and appreciating your accomplishments, instead of trying to go out there and haul more mountains. Not that you have to go sedentary, but be willing to sit back and point at what you want and have it come to you. (Check out your 2013 astrology forecast here!)

Cancer (June 21-July 22): You love security, but there’s a point where it can choke you and trap you into routines that no longer challenge you. Not that you have to go nuts, but it does mean doing what’s necessary to see your personal feelings in a new light and making things happen. Don’t worry; what’s waiting for you might just be that effortlessly beautiful. (Check out your 2013 astrology forecast here!)

Leo (July 23-August 22): Ruling your domain is something you have made into an art form. While others try to recreate your magical charisma, they fail, as there is only one original, and that is all you. So, as competition gets a more bit cutthroat, don’t sweat it. There are a lot of talented people in this world, and you should love them all. Yes, trust you are way ahead of the game. (Check out your 2013 astrology forecast here!)

Virgo (August 23-September 22): If you need peace of mind, buy it. Why break your brain overthinking anything, when salvation is just a signature away? After all, who knows where the wind will blow next, as all will be so topsy turvy in a sensational way, that they only thing you might be able to control is buying extra convenience. Either or, you have this power, so use it. (Check out your 2013 astrology forecast here!)

Libra (September 23-October 22): All the glory you dream of is on its way, but you have to keep weathering the storm and do your homework. This is no sprint you’re in now, so pace yourself and accept that the challenges you overcome now will ultimately make you worthy of reaping the rewards you’re after. No, it’s not the prettiest time in your life, but a meaningful one. (Check out your 2013 astrology forecast here!)

Scorpio (October 23-November 21): You try to control your emotions, hoping it will help control the direction of your life, but you know it doesn’t work. Life moves at its own tragic speed, which seems to rail against yours many a time. So, with major wins come harsh losses and that is just how the cookie crumbles. However, this week, love those crumbs, as they’ll be the sweetest morsels you have ever tasted. (Check out your 2013 astrology forecast here!)

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21): Confusion will strike at bizarre moments now, making you rethink what or who you are up against, as your opposition will be stronger than you thought. No matter, whip out your more clever tricks and get the leverage you want. For now, your battles will be equal parts surprising and seductive, as finally you will be sparring with someone or something that can match your wit. (Check out your 2013 astrology forecast here!)
