Week of: Feb. 19-25

Aries [3/23-4/20]: You have a unique situation this week -- Aries, my friend, because a lover or serious romantic relationship from the deep and distant past is going to surface and they are going to come bearing gifts. That's the good news. But be forewarned, dear Aries, that anyone with gifts which look so good, well, I know you're not the suspicious type, but I am, and I think some of my cynicism would do you some good this week. Just be extra careful about old flames turning into either raging bonfires, sometimes known as ñBonfires of the Inanities.î You do not need extra baggage at a time like this.

Taurus [4/21-5/22]: One of the problem with having an overwhelming Taurus personality is that you keep looking for the easy way out. Alas, my good Bullish friend, there is no easy way out this week. None at all. Once again,. a central theme in your life is self-sacrifice. This is usually best left to other signs, but you have inherited a little bit of stellar dust which says, ñLook at the big picture, not just the day to day stuff.î And granted, if you will remove yourself from the situation., the larger view will reveal that you have stumbled upon a real ñGlory Holeî (a place where there are lots of fish), but you canÍt fish there yet.

Gemini [5/23-6/21]: If you could slow down for just one second, you might feel the ever-loving embrace of the Earth Goddess calling out to you. If you could be still for just one minute, there is a tree - hugging - earth - muffin type chasing after you with good news. But the problem here is that most GeminiÍs, bless your souls, canÍt stop long enough to realize that someone is chasing them, especially when that someone is an elusive wood sprite. Slow down and embrace a little natural change.

Cancer [6/22-7/22]: Let the good times roll this week! Party on! Whatever. The deal is this: you feel great. Nothing can go wrong. And, no Great Work will be accomplished this week, either. That's the bad news. Or the good news, depending on oneÍs perspective. In any case, look for some activated love interests, and if there are absolutely NO love interests at all, look for some activated shopping interests. You want to make your world a little bit nicer place. This would be a good time to accomplish that. And forget the ñBuy Bubba a Bad Bass Boatî this week.

Leo [7/23-8/23]: The good news is that by the end of the week, the pressure which you been feeling will be over. Gone away, finished. Whatever last weekÍs project was, whatever the all-consuming, deadlines were, all of that is over now. That;s the good news. Actually, there isnÍt a whole lot to report that is bad. You have just started an ascent towards your birthday, as if you want to start out with a slow drum roll, starting now. ItÍs never to early to plan for a good party, you know.

Virgo [8/24-9/23]: Talk about pressure on poor old VirgoÍs! The best news I can give you this week is to make an attempt to hold onto the the thin shreds of reality that you now firmly have a grip on. Like trying to reel in a fish thatÍs too big for the gear youÍve got, the problems that are upon you right, both the financial and the romantic, seem to have no end in sight. That's the bad news. The good news? The romance problems will sort themselves out. YouÍre still left, though, trying to reel in a big fish with your under-sized fishing gear. Good luck -- youÍll need it. But if you do land this one, just think about the stories you can tell....

Libra [9/24-10/23]: This balance thing that LibraÍs are so famous for, this sense equality and composure, which LibraÍs are known far and wide for, this compassion and understanding, well, youÍre going to need it all this week. You have a golden opportunity to rectify some past injustice. To be a little more specific, you will be able to change a reaction in the field of romance, either a serious romantic partner, or someone, in a much broader sense, like a family member, who is near to you. Use this beneficial, if somewhat skewed energy as correctly as possible -- itÍs a good time for making past indiscretions right.

Scorpio [10/24-11/23]: IÍve been singing a song for you ScorpioÍs about getting ready for that first Bass Fishing Championship of the season. Are you ready to hit the trail and fish to your heartÍs content? I hope so. There are few things, though, I should warn you about: now, more than any other time, is the best time to get ready for the future. I mean, pull that boat up out of the lake, tend to all the chores like minor repairs and paint. Then, go back into the house and get your tackle box in order. Then, and only then will you be ready for a serious Championship Season. You may already be a winner, you wonÍt know until you get there.

Sagittarius [11/24-12/21]: Poor old Archer, youÍve got the trouble that Gemini has, itÍs the Earth Muffin routine. The big-hipped-hgairy-legged-tree-hugging people are after you. They want you to have some tofu. Maybe put some sprouts on it. While you have an adventuresome palate, health food which resembles lawn clippings is really not your style. I would, if I were you, gently remove myself from their presence. Yes, you have the highest of ideals, it just these guys want to brainwash you into thinking just their way. DonÍt go for it, Sagittarius. You will always be an independent thinker.

Capricorn [12/22-1/20]: I make an effort to warn every other sign about adversity, but one of the things I discovered about CapricornÍs is that, this sign as a whole, seems to relish the difficult time. ItÍs when everything is easy that I have to hear from a lot of complaining CapricornÍs. So, this week starts out with considerable stress related angles in between the stars in the sky. And, you will probably have an allergic reaction to some of these stress related angles, too, but being the dutiful soul that you are, you will not let your social life interfere with making money. That's the big this week, so go ahead and act a little greedy, you can do it.

Aquarius [1/21-2/18]: If you havenÍt gotten married in the last couple of weeks, and if you are not seriously considering it right now, then IÍm a little worried, but just a little worried. In any case, though, IÍll bet your romantic life has taken a turn for the better. Way better.. Much, much better than itÍs been a long time. In fact, if you have ever considered writing a torrid and trashy romance novel about your life, this would be the time to do it. And who would you get the play the lead character in the movie about your life? These are important questions, and if itÍs like that romance novel, you will want a super sexy star. It could happen, after this week.

Pisces [2/19-3/22]: You early Pisces, those of you with a birthday this week, you guys are really going to enjoy the next year. You cab already see that the heavens are lingering up to make your life a little easier right now. The fact of the matter is that there is a beneficial conjunction, that is, a bunch of planets get together, and it is an early Pisces thing, and this lends you a lot of energy and strength. In traditional astrology, it also means that there is a good year ahead.
