Aries: The sky isn’t falling, but it might be throwing a few spitballs at you on Friday. Carry a fire-proof umbrella or learn to duck, because those suckers flame up on atmosphere re-entry.

Taurus: Words not only fail you this week, they slap a pointy dunce hat on you and stick you in the corner. Fortunately, your actions are a lot louder, especially if they’re top notch.

Gemini: You can be a good egg or a very naughty omelet. Depends on how cracked you are, and if anyone whips you up into a frenzy. Tell them to throw in a little cheese and spice, too.

Cancer: Dance like no one’s watching, sing like no one’s listening, and wear some Axe body spray like no one’s sniffing. Two days later, you really will be alone.

Leo: You’ve blown past burning your candle at both ends; now you’re just sticking a propane torch directly into the vat of wax. Take a break before you have a complete meltdown.

Virgo: Someone else has the last word, but don’t worry, you get the last laugh. Mainly because they don’t know how to pronounce “cavalry.” Get back up on your high horse and ride off into the sunset.

Libra: When someone says it’s a mad world, do something nice for them. After that, they’ll just think it’s a hangry world in need of a good snack. It’s a step.

Scorpio: Don’t photocopy your private parts and staple them to your personnel review. That’s so old school. Take a pic and text it to your boss like you belong in this century.

Sagittarius: You think the fire-breathing dragon is trying to toast your tuckus, but really it just has bad heartburn and asthma. Wave a white flag and some Tums, and soon you’ll be besties.

Capricorn: Look on the bright side of life too much, and you’ll need some aloe vera for that sunburn. Relax, you don’t have to bask in the light all the time. Occasionally a creep through the darkened hallways of your mind will do you good.

Aquarius: Look for a spot of luck on Thursday. If you stretch it just right, that spot could grow into an oddly shaped stain of good fortune that covers the whole carpet.

Pisces: Everything feels like a struggle, but that’s because you have the strength to fight. Build those muscles with some planks and curls so you can show the world who’s boss. Don’t forget leg day, either.

Aries: Look deep inside and do some mental housecleaning. In the couch cushions of your mind, you’ll find an old Blockbuster receipt, two ancient Skittles and a weird memory from summer camp.  Toss all of that, spray a little Febreeze and you’re fresh as a daisy for the weeks ahead.

Taurus: Tuesday presents you with an opportunity. You can encourage it to bloom or stomp on it like an errant weed.  It wouldn’t hurt to develop some gardening skills, so life could smell a little sweeter.

Gemini: Time moves fast, but so do lizards on the sidewalk. Both can be fun to watch if you hold still for a few minutes, especially when that lizard runs up the pants leg of your snobby co-worker.

Cancer: Nobody’s perfect, but you could aim for at least being semi-normal once in a while. If you don’t, Karma will slap an “irregular” tag on you and ship you off to some discount outlet store.

Leo: Take a breath. Take another. There, now you have some oxygen getting to the brain and you can see how bad your new plan is. Think up something new, and keep that breathing habit.

Virgo: Thursday is fine, but Friday gooses you like that weird guy at the bus station. Keep an eye on it, and your back to the wall.

Libra: If you stay on the straight and narrow, you’ll never learn to handle the curves. Get out and find a crazy new road, so you’ll see what this baby can do.

Scorpio: Stop and smell the roses, but don’t get too close. There’s a bee named Merle who has it out for you because he saw what you did in the garden last month.

Sagittarius: Some days you’re the moth, some days you’re the flame, and other days you just wonder who started this fire in the trash can. Don’t worry, you’ve had three cups of coffee; you know how to put it out.

Capricorn: Admit it. You’re tired of the same old crazy. Head over to the conspiracy singles mixer and pick up a brand new crazy; you’ll both look great in tinfoil hats.

Aquarius: Time to get into shape for bikini season! You’ll be on your third sit-up when you realize your best shape is a trapezoid. Good thing you bought a very stretchy thong and some water-resistant tassels.

Pisces: You believe your thoughts make beautiful music of the mind but in reality, it sounds like two mice having a wild party on a keytar.  Good thing is, you can still dance to it.

 

Aries: You don’t have to worry about a fox in the henhouse, but you should be concerned about the wombat in the dishwasher. He doesn’t have any experience in plumbing, so you really should call a professional. And a zookeeper.

Taurus: The bull is slow to anger, which is good, but you’re also slow in everything else, too. Congratulations on making your sweetie happy and finally taking the Christmas lights down.

Gemini: A spoonful of honey makes the medicine go down, and it also keeps someone else quiet while you’re trying to talk. Bring a whole bottle and a box of spoons for your Friday afternoon meeting if you want to start your weekend on time.

Cancer: Monday is filled with laughter, but it might not be yours. Keep your zipper up and your cranky face on, and you’ll make it through unscathed. To save everyone else from certain doom, though, you’ll need your coffee.

Leo: You know what needs to be done, but you’re pretty sure your co-workers won’t like it. That’s okay, once you start your evil plan, they’ll be replaced by Swedish fem-bots and trained ferrets anyway.

Virgo: Climbing the ladder to success doesn’t mean life is easy at the top; once you run out of steps, you’ll just be dangling by your wits. Tie a knot in that rope and hang on until you strap on that parachute.

Libra: Romance is in the air, but it will fall out of the sky dead if you pick up that Axe body spray one more time. Get kinky instead; a dash of Pam nonstick cooking spray will raise eyebrows and pulses.

Scorpio: In order to find inner peace, you should choose a personal mantra. Anyone can chant “Om,” but you’ll only hit the higher planes if yours includes gas station burritos, Barry Manilow and hot goat yoga.

Sagittarius: Everyone makes mistakes, but you’ve rocketed beyond amateur status and are now floating around drunken rock star territory. Try to get at least one thing right this week, before you escalate to politician status.

Capricorn: When your family said they wanted to see more of you, that thong is not what they meant. Cover up those butt cheeks during your poolside BBQ, before you have an awkward collision with the ketchup bottle.

Aquarius: Life is beautiful on Tuesday, mainly because Karma discovered Instagram filters. Pucker those lips and go with the illusion; everyone needs a good selfie now and then.

Pisces: Your dreams are like soap bubbles: some you chase until they float away, and others pop in your face. On Wednesday, one finally lands gently in your hand. Hurry to make it a reality before the dog bites it.

Aries: If something goes awry, all is not lost. It’s simply misplaced. Look for your ambition under the sofa, and check the medicine cabinet for your courage. Whatever you do, leave the bottom drawer in the fridge alone.

Taurus: On Tuesday, you’ll awaken with a start, which is more exercise than you’ve had in weeks. Keep that heart pounding with a brief jog or by looking at the interest on your student loans.

Gemini: Congratulations! You’ve achieved a lifelong dream. Of course there will be letters from those against cruelty to rutabagas, but you can ignore the haters. You have triumphed over produce.

Cancer: You’re like a sugared-up hamster: wild, wooly, and ready to bite. No one should try to corral you, unless they, too, have a fascination with wheels and like to snuggle in wood shavings. If so, you’ve met your next sweetie.

Leo: Feeling fit as a fiddle? A special day is coming up, to prepare to whip out that bow and make those strings sing. You’ll have your hands full, so try not to drop that bass.

Virgo: Wednesday brings you trembling legs, sweaty palms and dry mouth. Either you’re in love, or you loaded up on expired gas station sushi again. You’ll uncurl from that fetal position by Friday, with a lesson learned.

Libra: Inspiration strikes this week, and it leaves a lightning bolt on your butt. Go ahead, seek out that truckload of mixed nuts, five AAA batteries and a kite, but add a camera too. No one should miss the moment you make YouTube history.

Scorpio: You find yourself in a tight situation, but belting out “Mandy” by Barry Manilow will set you free. Next time, don’t wear the Chewbacca mask through airport security checkpoints.

Sagittarius: The show must go on, even if you haven’t had your makeup done yet. If you’re not starring in a comedy, you will be, especially when that giant powder puff hits you in the face.

Capricorn: You’re not ready to get back in the saddle, but you can go commando and perch on a pillow until that chafing cools down. Next time, throw some talcum powder in those leather pants before you squirm into them.

Aquarius: Karma thinks you’re looking rather sexy these days. Flutter those lashes and wiggle that butt, because the universe is an excellent sugar daddy.

Pisces: Everyone calling your name can be nice, but not when they do it all at once. It’s not bad to want attention now and again, but you don’t get to choose between a gusher and a trickle. Be ready by the faucet, so you can turn it off when you want.

Aries: Variety is the spice of life, but you’ve added way too much garlic and cilantro to your mix. Your breath might keep cuties away, but it will also kill vampires on contact, so at least there’s a bright side.

Taurus: If your reach exceeds your grasp, don’t give up. You’re finally showing some ambition, you just need to do some yoga so you can explore the top shelf. Hint: that’s where the keep the really good stuff.

Gemini: You don’t mind the road less traveled, except that you’re getting blisters. Hop off for a while, heal up, then hit that wild path again with new shoes, new attitude and plenty of Band-Aids.

Cancer: You may be a fountain of wisdom, but right now something else is spraying out of you. Avoid crowds until allergy season winds down, because pollen turns you into a snotty lawn sprinkler.

Leo: Some people refuse to see the bright side, and you can’t make them. Forced jazz hands just looks weird. Keep playing your own one-person band, and you may annoy them enough that they give in.

Virgo: Forget the pot of gold; at the end of every rainbow, there’s usually someone taking a selfie instead. But they might buy you dinner if you promise to Instagram it with them, so it’s still a win.

Libra: If music is the food of life, you’re meagerly existing on stale cheese puffs and rubbery country remixes. Shake things up with David Hasselhoff singing Japanese pop music or bagpipe death metal. At the least, you’ll be more interesting.

Scorpio: Grab a comfy chair and have a seat; no one expects the Spanish Inquisition, unless you ordered it on Amazon. Turns out the chief weapons of fear and surprise are beaten by a tracking number and delivery updates.

Sagittarius: Look deeply into your soul. Is that lint? Mold? Your inner being really needs a good spring cleaning. Grab some Comet and a toilet brush, and get busy.

Capricorn: Expanding your horizons is great, but you’ll need to switch your mind from a gas-guzzler to a sleek, efficient Prius brainpower model so you can see all the new sights.

Aquarius: Don’t despair if you find yourself in a rut; just decorate it, install wi-fi and enjoy your new digs. You’ll do fine as long as you don’t try to flip it for a canyon. Something that big is nearly inescapable.

Pisces: You see the world in a different light, mainly because of those psychedelic steampunk goggles you wear. Dance to the beat of your own mechanized, tie-dyed drum, and eventually everyone will follow. Mainly they just want to see where you end up.

Aries: You have a mind that just won’t quit, but it really needs to take a coffee break before it has a meltdown. Give your brain a day off before you end up heavily medicated and holding crayons with your toes.

Taurus: A day without you is like a day without sunshine. Let those around you have a nice, rainy afternoon watching Netflix and eating pizza. After all, they can’t miss you if you’re not gone, and they’ll unlock the garage door for you in the morning.

Gemini: Use your superpowers on Friday to get that big deal you want. What superpower? You know, the one no one ever sees because you don’t want to end up on the news. It’s okay, though, just this one time, because the reward is worth it.

Cancer: Some days you’re the flower, other days you’re the sneeze. Either way, some allergy meds will make Wednesday easier. Or you could just take Benadryl and skip from Tuesday to Friday.

Leo: Inner peace isn’t always about finding a mountaintop and gaining wisdom from a lofty guru. Sometimes it’s knowing you had the restraint to not smack the idiots around today. Good job.

Virgo: To thine own self be true, but feel free to dish out little white fibs to everyone else. Your weight, politics and secret love for the Backstreet Boys will remain your own.

Libra: People say you’re an open book but frankly, you’re not even a one-sided pamphlet. Get some hobbies and conversation skills before you turn into an episode of reality TV.

Scorpio: Someone is rattling your cage, but you know something they don’t; you have the key. Step outside with a smile, and watch them wet themselves before they head for the hills.

Sagittarius: The universe wants an explanation of what you did last Tuesday. This time, don’t blame the dog. Karma knows he can’t drive or throw turnips; and the traffic camera definitely caught your best side.

Capricorn: If your step feels lighter, it’s because Karma is trying to lift your heavy butt over the rough spots. Help it out with some muscle power, instead of dragging your feet and complaining.

Aquarius: Watch out on Saturday. A bad-tempered ferret is coming to town, and it knows what you look like. Stock up on good whiskey and prepare your best distracting small talk.

Pisces: Opportunities fly at you fast, but don’t duck and run away. Grab a helmet and start whacking those suckers out of the park. You could score a pocketful of home runs before the day is done.

Aries: The path not taken is calling to you, but you shouldn’t listen to things when you can’t see where they keep their brains. That goes for unruly trails, old diaries and the odd boss now and again.

Taurus: Take a deep breath. Now another. Like that? Quit messing around with something you shouldn’t. Whether it’s a locked safe or an innocent-looking hottie, you could speed past the planet of pleasure and end up in a world of hurt.

Gemini: Shhh! The walls have ears. And a few buck teeth. Don’t discuss secrets while you’re hanging out in the mad scientist’s castle, go down to the nearest Starbucks instead. All you have to fear there are overwrought hipsters and unicorn coffees.

Cancer: It’s always darkest just before dawn. That’s because Dawn carries three high-beam LED flashlights, a portable spotlight and a sunny disposition. Whatever funk you’re in, she can see the way out.

Leo: It’s easy to get wrapped up in a line of thinking, but occasionally your brain needs a breeze. Loosen those mummy bandages and air out your gray matter; you might spot a better, less tangled method to your madness.

Virgo: Reconsider that thing you’re planning on Thursday. The thing on Friday is fine, though. And the thing on Saturday isn’t completely horrible. If you can’t keep your things straight, it’s time for a new calendar or better underwear.

Libra: Today is a gift, that’s why it’s called the present. Also, someone stuck a giant bow on Monday. It’s probably socks. Hey, no one ever said the present was a good gift.

Scorpio: Your co-workers rally around you this week. Either they think you’re about to be promoted, or you’ll be fired in a glorious drama-fest that involves dancing on the boss’ desk. If you can’t keep your cool, pass out the popcorn early.

Sagittarius: You don’t have to be beautiful to get ahead in this world, but it does distract the idiots so you can get things done. If you can’t look better, tape a photo of Ryan Reynolds to your back so everyone has something to stare at while you work.

Capricorn: Find your happy place, and you’ll be okay by yourself. Do it right, and you won’t even need accessories or the batteries than run them. You’ll glow on your own.

Aquarius: A helping hand is always appreciated, until it tries to grab you where it shouldn’t. Bend a few of those fingers back and they’ll learn to not touch your shoulder tattoo of Spongebob riding a taco in a thunderstorm.

Pisces: The world changes, and it’s hard for you to keep up. Helpful hint: tube tops and hammer pants should only be worn to Walmart, the DMV or around the house. Change into your best latex jumpsuit for PTA meetings.

 

Aries: No one likes a spoilsport, although they do like sporty spoilers. If you have a time machine and know who will win the next Super Bowl, you could make a lot of friends.

Taurus: If you keep spinning your wheels, you’ll wear out your bearings. Get someone to pull you out of that rut before you sink any lower into the mire.

Gemini: Congratulations! You’ve won the door prize to the Universe’s Tupperware party! It’s a sandwich crisper that also locks your troubles away so you can deal with them another day. Also works on carrots.

Cancer: Have a song in your heart and you’ll really mess up your next EKG at the cardiologist’s. Bet they’ve never seen Death Metal Bagpipe music in graph form before.

Leo: The world showers you with blessings this week, so quit complaining that you need a towel. Grab some fruity body wash and enjoy the downpour while it lasts. Remember to sprinkle some good fortune behind those ears, too.

Virgo: Someone knows your biggest secret. You could try to set them up with a goat wrangler in black latex and boots, or just wave it off and go on with your life. Your secrets are boring, anyway.

Libra: You will jump for joy on Tuesday. The rest of the days you’ll jump because that giant spider in the bathroom finally hatched her babies. Yay for cardio workouts!

Scorpio: Dreams can soar like an eagle, but watch them; they can also get away from you, like a mylar balloon heading for the power line. If you can’t catch it, at least you’ll have some sparks in your life. And a massive power outage.

Sagittarius: All your opinions are vindicated when someone finally clicks “Like” on that bizarre Facebook meme you posted. Your work here is done, so sign out and see what’s changed outdoors since 2008.

Capricorn: Wednesday may be tough, so stock up on pizza, whiskey and chocolate. Whatever happens, you won’t care by 11 a.m. By 2 p.m., you’ll be sharing inappropriate photos with your old English teacher.

Aquarius: Know what you want in life and go after it, whether you’re zooming like a My Little Pony Ferrari or put-putting down the trail on a moped. It will wait for you, mainly to laugh and point.

Pisces: You’ve never been keen on the ‘fame’ part, but the ‘fortune’ sounds nice. Thanks to your latest project, you’ll slice off a bit of both, plus some cheese, with that sharp wit. Stock up on crackers and wine.

Aries: Forget about a bucket list; try a thimble list, because you’re not going anywhere and you have some mending to do. This time, don’t sew your mother-in-law to the station wagon.

Taurus: The night is silent, but your brain won’t shut up. Tell it to start its own journal or YouTube channel, as long as it lets you sleep. You’ll probably wake up during the Blush Comparison Make-Up Tutorial video, though.

Gemini: Usually the universe is stingy around you, but on Friday it throws you its wallet and says “Have a blast.” While you’re tempted to blow it all on candy unicorns and good wine, save a little for necessities, like spandex and cheese curls.

Cancer: If you bring a knife to a gunfight, it’s because you plan to stay out of the line of fire and keep score on a nearby picnic table. Use your best penmanship, or you’ll get pelted by paintballs too.

Leo: Sometimes life can feel like a big scene from a movie everyone has seen, except for you. It never hurts to pause the action and grab a script; you don’t want to end up on Karma’s blooper reel.

Virgo: You have all the moves but none of the jazz. Take some rhythm lessons before you break out that next routine. Otherwise, someone might mistakenly rush you to a priest to be exorcised.

Libra: People say “sorry” is the hardest word, but it’s not. It’s impossible to say the word “judicially” without sounding drunk, which is why you use it in every conversation to cover up your five-martini lunches.

Scorpio: Superheroes get sidekicks; sidekicks get hilarious mascots; and mascots get you. No need to vent over it, at least you’re in the comic book, and you get to ask why the Hulk always keeps his pants.

Sagittarius: You’re a tough nut to crack, but someone brought an emotional hammer. Let out those feelings, because they’re so tasty when mixed with chocolate.

Capricorn: Your path would be brighter and easier to walk if you occasionally take your head out of your own butt. Your pants would fit better, and you’d get more compliments, too.

Aquarius: Some days you’re a rich, dark roast perfectly brewed, and other days you’re just vaguely brown and tasteless water. The days you really have to worry, though, are when the coffeemaker reaches sentience and begins its world domination plans through Skynet; that’s the day to go out for coffee.

Pisces: Your problems are like candy bars: break them down into pieces and devour them until they’re gone. Hopefully, there’s some coconut, peanut butter or caramel in there, too, because conquering your fears should come in a delightful array of flavors.

Aries: You have style, you have charm, but do you have insurance for all those hearts you’re breaking? Enjoy the attention, but watch out for jilted lovers and less-than-vigilant laws on taser-equipped crossbows.

Taurus: An idea is waiting for you like a prize Easter egg out in the open; scoop that bad boy up before anyone else notices it’s filled with chocolate, money and naughty photos. Forget the goose who laid it, hook up with one big bunny to keep those treasures coming.

Gemini: Your temper flares on Thursday, probably because someone ahead of you bought the last bear claw at the bakery or spilled coffee on your crotch. Let it go and save up your righteous anger for people who cut you off in traffic.

Cancer: Set aside that baseball bat, because Saturday requires finesse instead of force. Not every problem is a game of Whack-A-Mole. Besides, you’ve destroyed three desks this month.

Leo: You stumble across a treasure this week. Know in advance if you will return it or keep it, because the moment of truth requires a split-second decision. You’ll either get a parade or a purse-whacking from an angry old lady.

Virgo: Some people achieve greatness, others are best at just being the weird guy on the corner. By now, you’re pretty sure where you should be. It’s okay, at least weirdos are never lonely.

Libra: You’re on the right path, sometimes it’s just littered with thumbtacks, roller skates and hungry ferrets with a taste for toes. Step up that research for a jet pack, because those flip flops aren’t going to work.

Scorpio: Some rules are made to be broken. If you don’t put all your eggs in one basket, you’re going to look silly dragging 12 shopping carts with an egg in each one. Go ahead, be brave; just watch out and don’t crack under pressure.

Sagittarius: A better day is heading your way. Set out the cookies and punch, and maybe spray some Febreeze around the living room, just to make it feel welcome.

Capricorn:  Is there caffeine in the water supply? No, it’s just you having a good hair day and those Buns of Steel DVDs are paying off. You make everyone’s heart beat a little faster on Friday.

Aquarius: Nothing says ‘party’ like tequila-flavored ice cream. Although the worms were a nice touch, you’re probably not cut out to be a party planner for kids’ birthday celebrations. Not until rehab, anyway.

Pisces:  Knowing your place in the world is fine, but it’s just a temporary spot, not a permanent address. Keep looking for greener pastures, even if you have to carry in the Astroturf yourself.
