Your Friskyscopes For The Week Of April 29-May 5, 2013

Taurus (April 20-May 20): Life will adjust to a speed that’ll make you roasty-n-toasty in your own skin. Even if shit goes down, it’ll be water off a duck’s back. As you know, there are times you do all you can to get ahead to go nowhere; then there are times when you reap rewards from laziness. Cycles turn to your favor, at least this once. After all, it’s not wishful thinking, it’s physics.

Gemini (May 21-June 20): Over-intellectualizing emotions is not a winning game and you know it. You also know that if you have to think about it (at this early stage), it’s not looking too good … but you can’t stop. Maybe life is trying to catch you off-guard and there is more to your attractions than what would otherwise be so basic. Did you make it up? Were you blinded? No. Stop it before you start.

Cancer (June 21-July 22): There is no such thing as empty space, so don’t feel the need to fill every quiet hour you have. You are part of a bigger scene now and diving into it and absorbing the softness will do you well. If you give it a chance, you’ll be glad you did. Not that you should have any crazy expectations, smooth sailing will be its own reward.

Leo (July 23-August 22): All eyes will be on you, as a major responsibility falls on your shoulders. While there will be some drama about whether you can handle it all, be willing to step back and learn to pace yourself instead. You are about to embark on an entire escapade that can change who you are, but know that to get it right you will have to act accordingly.

Virgo (August 23-September 22): Sometimes the future is impossible to tell. Instead, you just have to walk through fire — and that time is now. Parts of your life are not yet fated and in order to face certain challenges now, you’ll have to show what you really believe in and how you’ve grown. The world is wide open, but don’t damn yourself into thinking you have it all figured out.

Libra (September 23-October 22): Mistakes that you make now are your fault and if you waste even another second trying to blame anyone else, another egg will fly into your face. Being hopeful is great and being a genius is gift, but if you don’t take that potential and use it towards being responsible in your own individual way, then you may just end up a statistic. Don’t just stand up, stand out.

Scorpio (October 23-November 21): Safety comes first, so don’t hold onto secrets too tightly. It’s not up to you to direct all the plots in your love life. Let your boo take the reins in scripting the next few adventures. If he really is all that you want, then he won’t disappoint, and will totally rock your world. If he can’t, well, why then waste another minute with a fool?

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21): Power is awesome, but flexing your ability to control doesn’t mean you actually are. In the long run, you could be pushing people away. So, avoid playing cruise director too intensely with people around you. Sure, share good ideas, but listen to the responses back. You do not and should not feel accountable for how another spends their time.

Capricorn (December 22-January 19): As long as you can recognize madness, you’ll steer clear of it. You have an entire repertoire of creativity to delve into and nothing can take that from you. It’s polite to give respect when called for, but protocol isn’t the only thing that gives someone the right to call themselves an authority. So, mind what advice you take now.

Aquarius (January 20-February 19): There is a slob side to you that you don’t readily let others in on, but you know that once you do, that is forever. Take this rule and apply it to every part of your life. Open up and let yourself get in touch with your comfort zone +1. Sharing ridiculous secrets now will be the glue that keeps your latest bond together.

Pisces (February 20-March 20): Mind-controlling substances can take all forms, so take a look at how you are spending your time. Obsession will lead to madness, so avoid that route. Ask if what you are giving yourself over to is even worth it and act accordingly. Understand that if you have to try hard, it’s tapping into a side of you that will not lead to your best now. So, hit the brakes!

Aries (March 21-April 19): Don’t set yourself up for a fall by deluding yourself that flakes, no matter how big their talk, deserve the benefit of the doubt.  History counts and this isn’t the time for any exceptions to the rule. Embrace your jaded side, because it’s your armor and it works. Make it your bible in how you deal with society now and you will not have to waiver.
