The severance of fleshly ties serves to uplift you spiritually. Cease to sigh over the world, my dear Rams, as people born under the Cardinal Fire sign of Aries (21 Mar- 21 Apr) are sometimes called. Teamwork and mutual support are everything. Your trust in your capabilities and the loving support of those who care deeply for you should pay off well.

You are feeling sagacious these days and it is vital that you shift direction a little bit, my dear Bulls, as people born under the Fixed Earth sign of Taurus (22 Apr-22 May) are sometimes called. A little boost of luck is sure to come your way, so go ahead with those seemingly crazy plans. Expect to impress all who are watching you work.

Trials and tribulations are salubrious. You need some leadership in your life even if you are the boss, my dear Twins, as people born under the Mutable Air sign of Gemini (23 May-22 Jun) are sometimes called. Find someone you can believe in and listen attentively to what they say. No matter how strange things seem to be, you can make it through.

You breeze through something that you thought would be really hard, my dear Crabs, as people born under the Cardinal Water sign of Cancer (22 Jun-22 Jul) are sometimes called. And, you have got something entertaining before you -- above and beyond the daily grind. Work closely with those who are in the same boat as you more or less.

You are all starry-eyed these days, my dear Lions, as people born under the Fixed Fire sign of Leo (23 Jul-22 Aug) are sometimes called. You should be able to work out solutions to challenges that have been bothering you lately. The stark realities of life can be terrifying, but they will not kill you. Heartache? Now even that is not fatal.

Blotch out your daydreams. Wait for the right opportunity to go public about your real desires, my dear Virgoans, as people born under the Mutable Earth sign of Virgo (23 Aug-22 Sep) are sometimes called. Trust your instincts. Try to keep your mind from wandering aimlessly. Stay focussed on your goals. You are in tune with your emotional needs so harness them.

A wandering eye -- yours or someone else's, my dear Scales, as people born under the Cardinal Air sign of Libra (23 Sep-23 Oct) are sometimes called, is nothing to fear in the days ahead. Do you believe in the evil eye? If the eyes roam, let them. If you fall within someone's gaze, stare back with the understanding that they cannot harm you.

The information in front of your face is anything but pleasant or satisfying, my dear Eagles, as people born under the Fixed Water sign of Scorpio (24 Oct-23 Nov) are sometimes called. You need to act right away, even to take dramatic action. Don't procrastinate. Get on with the task at hand. Don't be frightened by the seemingly onset of a meltdown.

Dream on, my dear Centaurs, as people born under the Mutable Fire sign of Sagittarius (24 Nov-23 Dec). However, others you respect and love may not be as inspired as you are. Your dreams are closer than ever to becoming reality. How many ways can you derive joy from the new opportunities that are all around you? Sweet dreams.

This week is for quick communications and witty responses, my dear Sea Goats, as people born under the Cardinal Earth sign of Capricorn (22 Dec-22 Jan) are sometimes called. Save the face-to-face conversation for another time. You are better off getting the message across by text message or e-mail. The best way is by unravelling these revelations.

Your saintly nature shines through, my dear Water Bearers, as people born under the Fixed Air sign of Aquarius (23 Jan-19 Feb) are sometimes called. Can you lend a hand? You have got the right kind of energy to help out, but maybe a question of time or distance is stopping you from helping. The facts of the case are elusive. See what you can do, but don't stress out.

The Cosmic energy has a clarifying effect on you now, my dear Dolphins, as people born under the Mutable Water sign of Pisces (20 Feb-21 Mar) are sometimes called. High energy and jaw-dropping revelations this week. You are ready for just about anything. A new aspect of your life is fast changing everything and you are fixated with it. You'll do swimmingly.
