Week of: Feb. 5 - 11

Aries [3/23-4/20]: Feel like you've just been shot out of a cannon? Maybe feel a little bit like a human cannonball? Or is life beginning to resemble a concrete drop at the end of bungee line? I hope this all doesn't worry you, either. You get off to a good start, all full of activity, and ready to take the town by storm on Monday morning, and by Tuesday afternoon, you will find yourself completely fed up with all the petty bickering. You need some sort of chemical attitude adjustment because everyone else is being difficult this week.

Taurus [4/21-5/22]: I'm not going to say that you lack foresight, or that you cannot effectively plan ahead for some things, but I am going to observe that this would be a good time to lay some groundwork for future expansion, and the risk of this future expansion? It looks like you are going to have to approach life from a somewhat more ascetic point of view. This is nice way of saying make some daily sacrifices for a bigger reward later. If you can.

Gemini [5/23-6/21]: The good news is that your razor sharp mind is like the cutting edge of a giant oil tanker, plying the seas of rational thought. What a nice image, you: cutting through the other people who are some much more sluggish than you. There is one obstacle for you, though, and large chunk of ice. Now, I wouldn't want to be a doom seer, but remember what happened to the Titanic, it was unsinkable. Be careful with that quick mind and quick tongue this week: try not to make any more enemies.

Cancer [6/22-7/22]: I know that you will find this hard to believe, dear Cancer friend, but remember that arrogance is the first step downward for you. What does arrogance have to do with all the good things that are happening this week? I just don't want you to get too overconfident and cocky because it should be a good week, as long as you keep a tight check on that ego. Look, I'm only telling this because I'm your Fishing Buddy.

Leo [7/23-8/23]: Well there you go, dearest Leo, you should feel like one of the greatest dramatic creations of all time: Falstaff. For those of you who are unaware, this isn't a beer, but a character from Shakespeare's Trilogy in Four Parts about the History of Henry IV who becomes Henry Sank. The character has phenomenal good luck and good fortune, and he lives a very well-rounded life: wine, women, war, all the great things. And he's the king's good buddy. I can't promise war or women, and the wine may be metaphorical, but there is plenty of metaphor and party time this week.

Virgo [8/24-9/23]: Well, it looks like you were about to raise up out of a slump last week, and then, all of a sudden, along came Monday Morning and you fell right back into that pit of despair. Your emotions are bit ragged and dull this week, and you feel a little frayed around the edges. Somebody ran their fingernails across the chalkboard and that set the tine for the rest of the week. Look: none of these are obstacles that you can't overcome with a little perseverance. Get after it.

Libra [9/24-10/23]: While I am certainly of the group that would like to completely do away with fatalistic Astrology-oriented "Astral Determinism", I fear that this week you Libra's will feel a greater call of destiny. In simple English: your ship will arrive, and you have a chance to get on board. I'm not talking about a ferry across some dark river, rather this is a time where you can have a greater sense of accomplishment. If you achieve that balance. Balance is always a tricky subject with the Libra's, well, sometimes it is a tricky subject, and then, other times, it's not.

Scorpio [10/24-11/23]: You are acting almost too gleeful for the rest of us. A happy Scorpio gives one a moment to pause and think, "What's that Scorpio up to make them so darned happy?" Actually, in this case, you are up to nothing., Like the expression goes, "Nothing up my sleeve." And, to be really truthful, there are no tricks here. You just feel a lot better right now. Which makes the rest of the other signs really wonder about you. Why are you so happy right now?

Sagittarius [11/24-12/21]: Maybe this is merely a Sagittarius experience from my own lifetime, but I think you just missed the bulk rate date for Valentine's Day. Now all those form letters "To the One Person I Really Loved (insert name here)" are going to have to be mailed First Class Postage. Unless, of course, you can get some bulk deal on e-mail. The biggest problem you are facing right now is how to juggle three dates on the 14th. I have no advice for this. This is not a situation I would ever get myself into. You hapless Sagittarius types should know better.

Capricorn [12/22-1/20]: Money. Is there ever enough? No! What can you do to make some more? Get more work! What should you do this week while there is a good stuff pushing on you? Get more money! How are you going to do this? Think long and hard, now. You have the drive, the ideas, the ability to make all of this happen, the big question now is can you do it? Put some of your ideas to work for you, and I'll wager you will be surprised with the beneficial results. The one thing to watch out for right now is a tendency to be a little lazy at times.

Aquarius [1/21-2/18]: I'll assume that you have a passing familiarity with Biorhythms because this is an important concept, specially at the beginning of the week, when you start out with everything in a slump. That's where the emotion, the physical, and the psychological all fell drained, down, bottomed out. So much for the slump stuff. Since this is such a short cycle, by the middle of the wee, you will be starting to get back into action, and by the weekend, you will back in shape and on top all over again. Cautions for this week: careful with the Ax, Eugene. (Trivia Question, who sang that song?)

Pisces [2/19-3/22]: As long as we are setting the controls for the heart of the sun, I guess we can take a look at you, too.. The way I see it, there has been two disturbing forces at work on you, and by the end of the week, there will only be one disturbing force at work on you. This should be good news, the only hassle will be that reality is still finishing up with its march across Pisces and it is still not a great time for you. One final note, the end is in sight, and you may soon be allowed to drift back to that other world you live in.
