Aries: A watched pot never boils; glaring at it just makes the rest of the pans nervous. Give them some privacy and go microwave a burrito for lunch. Applying first aid to your tongue will keep you busy for a while.

Taurus: Don’t drink the Kool-Aid your co-worker is offering, unless you want to end up in a white robe selling flower seeds door-to-door. You might ask them for their Kool-Aid recipe, though. You could use some minions of your own.

Gemini: You’ll savor a delicious Monday, a fresh, artisanal Thursday and a Friday that’s crap unless you cover it in Sriracha. Good thing you have a home-cooked Saturday in the freezer.

Cancer: Lately, your life’s been stranger than a sugar-free Candy Land game. Sweeten the pot with an old-fashioned taffy pull. You may not win the race, but you might ace the tug-o-war.

Leo: If you have a spring in your step, it probably means you’ve stomped through the Slinky display at the toy store. Don’t dig it out of your shoe yet; that’s the bounciest you’ve been in weeks.

Virgo: You used to worry about a little bird spilling secrets all around town, but now they’ve gone global on Twitter. Either clean up your act, or pray for bird flu.

Libra: Your deepest, darkest secret ends up on Instagram. You could hide away in embarrassment, or re-brand yourself as an inspirational influencer and grab yourself a million-dollar book deal.

Scorpio: Your family is like a fruitcake: full of fruits and nuts, but tolerable with enough brandy. Keep that in mind on Thursday, because it’s very hard to re-gift your relatives.

Sagittarius: Expect a surprise in the mail this week; it could be money, or a box of mismatched socks your great aunt Louise found behind the dryer. When life doesn’t give you cash, you can always make sock puppets.

Capricorn: You’re so impatient on Friday, even instant coffee takes too long. Shift into a lower gear, before the local barista gets tired of your sass and smacks you with a bag of ancient biscotti.

Aquarius: Things are looking up, especially since you bought that stepladder. Go ahead, reach for the top shelf in life, because that’s where all the good cereal and liquor is kept. Enjoy your breakfast of gourmet Rice Krispies in craft beer.

Pisces: Some think you can’t see the forest for the trees, but you’re just trying to whack your way out of the thorn bushes down the hill. Keep swinging that machete, eventually you’ll see a tree or an exasperated forest ranger.
