◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): Today the Sun moves opposite your sign, which means it’s as far away from you as it gets all year. Since the Sun is your source of energy, you’re going to need more sleep in the next month. Respect this need and catch up on extra zzzzz’s.
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): In the next six weeks, you want to be productive and accomplish as much as possible. In particular, you’ll try to do everything efficiently, effectively and with minimum waste of effort and money. Yes! You’re going for perfection. (And why not?)
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Get ready for a fun-loving, playful six weeks ahead! Accept all invitations to party. Slip away on a vacation if possible. Enjoy the arts, sports events and playful activities with children.
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): Your focus will be on home, family and your domestic needs in the next six weeks. Family events will be your top priority. No doubt childhood memories will trigger interesting reminisces and conversations.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Get ready because you’re going to hit that pavement running in the next six weeks. Short trips, errands, conversations with everyone plus increased writing and reading will create a jam-packed schedule for you.
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Without question, in the next six weeks, your focus turns more and more to money, cash flow, and earnings as well as possessions. Basically, you want to get the most bang for your buck. You also want to feel that what you own will serve your needs and not vice versa.
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Today the Sun enters your sign where it stays for the next month, boosting your energy and attracting people and favorable circumstances to you. (What’s not to like?) Make use of this fortunate window of time. I
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Your birthday is approaching, which means your personal year is coming to a close. That’s why the next month is the perfect time to think about what you want your new year to be all about. How do you want it to be different from this year?
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Whether you’re at home receiving company or on the road schmoozing with everyone, you’ll enjoy increased popularity in the next six weeks. This is a great time to make new friends, see old friends, as well as join classes clubs and organizations.
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): This is the only time all year when the Sun slowly crosses the top of your chart, acting like a spotlight on you. This makes others notice you more than usual. Since the light is “flattering,” people think you’re great and will ask you to do things. Say yes.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Do whatever you can in the next month to vary your routine. Go places you have never been before. Travel if possible. Talk to people from different backgrounds and other cultures. Take a class. Learn something new. You want adventure and stimulation!
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): In the next six weeks, you will be strongly focused on passionate sex, intense exchanges with others and red-tape details about inheritances, taxes, debt and shared property. The word casual will not even be in your vocabulary!
