MAR 21 - APR 19

A rendezvous in a strange location lends some excitement to the start of your week. You feel a bit like a character in a noir film or a journalist on an exotic assignment. The world around you is rich, and your interactions with others are charged. That charge launches you into Wednesday and Thursday, when you find yourself pursuing a hot new lead. On Friday you may use someone else to your advantage; be sure they're getting something out of the deal, too. This weekend, after a successful mission, your sights will be set on still greater heights.



APR 20 - MAY 20

As much as you love your friends and associates, other people are a liability on Monday and Tuesday. Be charming and diplomatic, but be firm. If you have control of the cockpit, don't get up to take a coffee break. You'll have plenty of time for coffee on Wednesday -- you'll have time to take a swim in a river of coffee, if you want -- and Thursday and Friday you should spend enjoying other people's ideas. Travel (perhaps by plane) may figure into your days. This weekend, a confusing interaction with someone else leaves you flummoxed. Chalk it up to weird weather. It means nothing.



MAY 21 - JUN 20

If what you are saying just isn't getting through to you-know-whom, consider the way you're saying it and where this person is coming from. And then consider starting with a knock-knock joke. If you can get someone to laugh, you've got their attention. Wednesday through Friday will be a little sparse, laughs-wise -- you've got some business to attend to -- and you might find yourself frustrated that the week ends on such a confusing note. But the weekend restores you. On Sunday, a lightbulb (imaginary) blinks on and everything that's been confounding you starts to make sense.



JUN 21 - JUL 22

Your wattage might be running low on Monday and Tuesday, so do something chill: take lunch on your own, stop by the video store on your way home from work, get supplies for a bubble bath. The whole week you'll be in this mood -- content, quiet, self-aware -- and it may lead to a meaningful revelation or two, the kind you can't have when you're surrounded by buzz and chatter. This weekend, indulge in your most eccentric side. If you're interested in 17th-century gardening, find some books on 17th-century gardening. Or maybe you're interested in comets. Or music. Whatever it is, enjoy.



JUL 23 - AUG 22

You are bounding down the street on Monday and Tuesday. Or perhaps down the highway. You have a passion for travel at the start of the week. Then again, what don't you have a passion for at the start of the week? It helps that your romantic life is going well. On Wednesday and Thursday you make a good impression without even trying, and Friday you do something healthy. (Just don't regale anyone with the details of your health regimen; oddly, it might come across as showing off.) This weekend, you have the answers; when someone hands you a problem, you have fun seeing how quickly you can solve it.



AUG 23 - SEP 22

You'd love to stop the raft and change course, but these are some mighty fine rapids. The safest plan of action would be to see this through; once the river dies down a bit, you can regroup. Overcoming the tension from the start of the week will be key to enjoying the romance that kicks into high gear on Wednesday and lasts through the second half of the week. Friday is an incredible day. This weekend, you learn a bunch of new things all at once, or else you learn the one thing that makes everything else fall into place. Be open-minded and you'll be thrilled with what you discover.



SEP 23 - OCT 22

Social experimentation at the start of the week totally pays off. You put the oddest ideas on the table and people take to them instantly (there is something offhandedly genius about the things that fall out of your mouth right now). Nevertheless, Wednesday and Thursday you have little time to be dazzling the masses with your thinking, as the home realm requires your attention. Friday you're still feeling a bit out of it -- sentimental, though not sentimental in a fun way -- but this weekend is nearly nonstop romance and good times.



OCT 23 - NOV 21

You are your own person, certainly, but you find yourself at the start of the week feeling more identified with a group than you have in a while. It's nice to belong and it's nice to wind up involved in adventures you would never stumble into on your own, but don't forget to assert your own personality. The second half of the week, particularly Wednesday and Thursday, your self-control and shrewdness will be called upon, and Friday you may need to finesse something over the phone. Saturday and Sunday, those same skills will be needed around the house. Demonstrate your diplomatic prowess.



NOV 22 - DEC 21

Good feelings and good will abound on Monday and Tuesday. It's sounds cheesy, but everyone you know has found a way to love one another, and it's putting you in a heck of a good mood. Wednesday you feel more moved by art and music than you have in a while. That's not to say you should rush out and buy some expensive art or a new music collection. Watching what you spend on Thursday and Friday -- right down to packing your lunch -- is a brilliant plan. Over the weekend, you'll meet someone in a random way and end up talking to them for a lot longer than you expected.



DEC 22 - JAN 19

As they say, anything is possible if you put your mind to it, but it's not just your mind that's needed -- you also have to apply energy. You're at about normal energy levels on Monday and Tuesday, but come Wednesday you go on hyperdrive. You just have to think about being across the street and you're already there. Your radiance is turning heads on Thursday, and by Friday your demonstrated stamina will be downright jaw-dropping. As for those impossible things made possible? Well, nothing happens overnight, but don't be discouraged. An airtight new plan will occur to you this weekend.



JAN 20 - FEB 18

Your social group could use a few new members, so be open to unfamiliar faces on Monday and Tuesday. The start of the week is a time of expansiveness. Wednesday and Thursday, however, restriction is the order of the day, and discipline is important. That's a better tactic than flailing all around. Friday has you exhausted -- it's been a long, busy week -- but Saturday is a bend in the river: suddenly you're among a singing, dancing crowd. You're not always in the mood for musical numbers, but you'll be charmed. Sunday is an energetic day as well.



FEB 19 - MAR 20

Monday is your lucky day. So is Tuesday, in fact. Don't rush out and buy a lottery ticket -- it's not that kind of luck -- but notice how the small things seem to be going your way? This is partly unrelated to you and it's partly a reflection of all the positive energy you've been putting out there lately. If someone needs your help on Wednesday, you're happy to give back. Drop whatever you're doing. On Thursday and Friday, even the toughest tasks are a snap. This weekend, you'd like to work magic for as many people as possible, but you can only fit so many tricks up your sleeve.
