Mark your calendar, my dear Rams, as people born under the Cardinal Fire sign of Aries (21 Mar-21 Apr) are sometimes called. Cut through the clutter this week. The next few days are perfect for making decisions of all kinds, especially those that affect your future in interesting and quixotic new ways.

Choose something new to do with your life, my dear Bulls, as people born under the Fixed Earth sign of Taurus (22 Apr-22 May) are sometimes called. Get rid of anything broken or useless. Only keep close those who you plan to spend time with. Don't over-extend relationships that no longer make sense. You decide the nature of affinity.

You need to work out some of this restless energy in selfless projects, my dear Twins, as people born under the Mutable Air sign of Gemini (23 May-22 Jun) are sometimes called. Do not focus too much on your lifestyle in the days ahead. Put the onus on others. If you feel better about things generally that is just a fringe benefit.

Moonlight is the time for riotous romance, my dear Crabs, as people born under the Cardinal Water sign of Cancer (22 Jun-22 Jul) are sometimes called. And Moon is your Sun sign. Don't forget about sexual fulfillment. It will go better for you if you are at least open to the very notion of metamorphosis.

Enjoy this fantastic week whatever your budget is, my dear Lions, as people born under the Fixed Fire sign of Leo (23 Jul-22 Aug) are sometimes called. The hottest summer is upon us and you will beat the heat. The hotter the better. Deep love unfolds in the most alluring fashion.

It is not frivolous to daydream about the perfect partner, my dear Virgoans, as people born under the Mutable Earth sign of Virgo (23 Aug-22 Sep) are sometimes called. Imagine yourself with someone who loves you just as you are. And, you could very well experience self-fulfilling prophecy.

Stay positive and realistic about upcoming events, my dear Scales, as people born under the Cardinal Air sign of Libra (23 Sep-23 Oct) are sometimes called, for it can be hard to focus on your relationship goals. With work and extra-curricula activities you are bound to win accolades from friends and foes.

This summer is different, my dear Eagles, as people born under the Fixed Water sign of Scorpio (24 Oct-23 Nov) are sometimes called. Do you understand what sort of life is in store? It is the perfect life of your deepest desires and maddest yearnings. Love, in its purest form, will predominate. Love is all.

Relationships are complex enigmas that demand patience, my dear Centaurs, as people born under the Mutable Fire sign of Sagittarius (24 Nov-23 Dec) are sometimes called. Be as selfish as you want. However, your kind nature will prevail. It may be formal volunteering work or just making a decision that ripples through the community.

Don't let a recent setback stop you from your search for self-fulfillment, my dear Sea Goats, as people born under the Cardinal Earth sign of Capricorn (22 Dec-22 Jan) are sometimes called. Your pursuits are worth pursuing. Believe in your capabilities, for they are Legion.

You will see a profound change in your career path this week, my dear Water Bearers, as people born under the Fixed Air sign of Aquarius (23 Jan-19 Feb) are sometimes called. You will keep in touch with your classmates and your co- workers, though. You shall not labour in vain.

After weeks of trying desperately to be good in the finance department and pretty much nailing it, my dear Dolphins, as people born under the Mutable Water sign of Pisces (20 Feb-21 Mar) are sometimes called, you are finally in charge of the purse. The omens bode well.
