Obsessive much? The love jones hits you hard this week, and you can’t get a certain someone off your mind. Alas, this is not a cue to take a dreamy stroll through Harry Winston, dropping hints along the way. Channel those imaginative powers into advancing a personal quest. That way, you won’t overwhelm the object of your affections by coming on too strong.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Make people your priority this week, Taurus, taking time to give the most important ones your undivided attention. Cancel the group hangouts and opt for one-on-ones so you can really dig deep in conversation. A weekend trip brings more bonding moments, so hop in the car for a road trip for deux or to visit a loved one in another city.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
So, where are the two of us heading? What does the future hold for our relationship? Questions like these will be on your mind all week, as the planets replace your commitment-shy MO with a fierce need to know. Instead of leaving the inquiry open-ended (and running the risk badgering people like an investigative journalist), come up with a creative vision that you can introduce into the conversation. How would you like things to go down, Gemini? Paint an inspiring picture and invite others on board.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Warning: You’re heading for martyr mode, Cancer. Heck, you might already have crossed the line into that territory. Stop the runaway train with some 911 nurturing and self-care this week. Book the spa treatment and have a sit in your stylist’s chair (mid-length bob, anyone?). Set a clear limit with someone who’s been taking advantage of your kindness. “No” is a complete sentence so don’t waste time arguing over your boundaries.
Leo (July 23-August 22)
Glamorous, amorous Venus turns your love light on to high beam as it cruises through your fifth house of passion until November 5. When it comes to romance, you’re like a kid in the candy store now. Single Leos might as well taste the rainbow before settling on a favorite flavor. (Note: Avoid the Gummy Worms and opt for the Mr. Goodbars.) In a relationship? Piquant passion is the name of the game. Stop waiting for your sweetie to make a move and take matters into your own hands.
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
Feather that nest! With beautifying Venus in your domestic sector for the next month, it’s time to make Chateau Virgo feel more like a home. Get your Jonathan Adler on — or, if you already have, use this time to flaunt your decorating skills. Put a leaf in the table and host an epic dinner party. Who knows? A design blogger might even feature the whole affair.
Libra (September 23-October 22)
Enough with the under earning, Libra. Is it time to put a higher price tag on your offerings? Research competitive rates; you may discover that you’ve been lowballing yourself in negotiations or salary requests. Training may also be required to launch yourself to a higher income bracket. Invest in your growth and sign up for that seminar, private session, or online course that will help pad your pockets.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
Blurred lines abound this week, which is okay to an extent. Being a bit more affable with coworkers can soften the edges between you, making for a stronger working relationship. We’re not saying to turn your star client into your confidant or get all sloppy sentimental at the office happy hour. Just drop some of that enigmatic cool and let people see what lights you up. A challenging, yet exciting, project could land in your lap as a result. Take it on! If nothing else, this will be a great résumé builder.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
Magnetic, alluring Venus makes her annual visit to your sign from Monday through November 5. You’ll have no shortage of admirers now, so indulge liberally. Just don’t let this interfere with the development of a passion project. Hosting Venus in your sign can evoke a creative renaissance. Get thee to the studio, Sag!
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
All for one and one for all? Not so fast, Capricorn. As much as you adore your entourage, it’s not always wise to turn your playmates into your professional associates. Keep your peeps in their proper categories this week — and, by all means, branch out. Networking will turn up some incredible new collaborators before the week is through.
Aquarius (January 20-February 19)
Your sign has a strange paradox to uphold, Aquarius: You’re a committed community spirit who also insists on being a wholly original individualist. Embrace it this week, Water Bearer, and tour a few new scenes. You might feel like the misfit, but that’s half the fun for you. Circle Tuesday as a high point for your career and keep your nose to the grindstone. The VIPs have their eyes on you.
Pisces (February 20-March 20)
The truth has been known to hurt at times, but it’s better to keep it real this week than to risk being misunderstood. With gracious Venus moving into your “let’s get down to business” tenth house from Monday until November 5, you need to focus on the major goals that are looming instead of worrying about stepping on people’s toes. This is a stellar week for making money from a creative venture. How about that Etsy store you've been dreaming up?
