Your Friskyscopes For The Week Of August 12-18, 2013

Leo (July 23-August 22): You can dress in your sexiest looks and do a lap dance that would make even the biggest Viagra user sit up and take heed, but no matter how much you turn it out, you’ll only get so far. Yes, the power you have now is in your words, so articulate your emotions and ideas, as strength in communication is what will give you the upper hand in romance, passion and subservience.

Virgo (August 23-September 22): If you want to feel good, you are going to have to pay a bigger price. That’s right — upgrade your life, as luxury shouldn’t be a fantasy you just look at in a magazine. Instead, throw caution to the wind and allow yourself some finer things in life. If you are in a relationship, splurge together, because if it’s going to last, you’ll want to physically see an investment that makes a statement.

Libra (September 23-October 22): Your magnetism will be unstoppable, which can throw you into a tailspin, as hotness will surround you too. Whatever, a little heat never hurt anybody, least of all you. So, shift into fearless mode and learn to juggle, as you won’t be satisfied until ever inch of your body and minute of your time gets occupied with danger.

Scorpio (October 23-November 21): When you care for someone, there’s no end to what will do for that person. Even if they don’t understand the depths of your emotions, you will still go that extra mile. However, knowing that this might not be fair in the long run, you can’t blame anyone but yourself if you do extend your effort farther than necessary. Realize karma just won’t be working in a linear way now.

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21): Whether you’re hooked up or single, being out and about will tickle your fancy now. If it’s with your honey, you’ll find that you make a great social team and that there is power in numbers. If you’re single, being especially social will be what works for you, as friends of friends will somehow get hotter and more persuasive now.

Capricorn (December 22-January 19): You like upholding a certain standard and although you don’t have to be showy about it, it is nice when you do win the admiration of others and can wield that power. So, as this week puts you in a glorious place to gloat, beware of getting too close to the sun. Moderation is necessary when all eyes will be on you, as maintaining your decorum will make or break this moment.

Aquarius (January 20-February 19): It’s admirable to always have ideals that keep inspiring you to reach higher. However, if you can’t appreciate what you already have, because your ambition makes you try harder, then you’ll find yourself running into a brick wall. So, step back and look at the bigger picture, as pieces of the puzzle may already be in your hands.

Pisces (February 20-March 20): The prospects that come your way now won’t have much depth — and as much as your imagination would like to run away with itself, keep a leash on it. The worst thing you can do now is to convince yourself that there is more to someone then there actually is. So, save yourself the heartache and energy, as you won’t have to dive deep to get a clue.

Aries (March 21-April 19): You may be the sign of independence, but you won’t want to do or go anywhere alone now. Yes, your codependence will be acting up in all sorts of goofy ways, making you feel more connected to your boo than ever. No matter, as they’ll be feeling the same way about you. You know it; this is one of those times you two are going to be that couple that makes everyone want to puke.

Taurus (April 20-May 20): Don’t sell yourself short of what you deserve. If you’ve given a lot and not received back the same, then don’t make any more excuses. You have all the evidence you need to assess your current situation. Sure, the truth can hurt, but after the sting, you will be free. If anything, understand the practical dynamics of what you’re after and sort out a new plan.

Gemini (May 21-June 20): Let out your wild side and just go with the flow. You won’t want to be tied down by anything but lust now, and this is your time to go balls to the wall. After all, this summer is coming to a fast end and you have yet to get what you want from it. Thankfully, you are a fast study and once you get the reins on this week, you’ll love the control and the direction you’re heading in too.

Cancer (June 21-July 22): Your pride can make you stubborn at the worst times and in the silliest situations. So, assess what you are actually avoiding and how the various outcomes of taking action could go. If you do see that you can get what you want and save your ego, then keep on keeping on. However, if you see that logic isn’t adding up, then embrace that clue and re-strategize.
