For All Signs We are in the midst of a several week period in which many of us will feel compelled to visit the past in some way. Old issues of resentment and anger may resurface for a better cleansing. A helpful ritual is to clean out closets, eliminate useless items, and organize clutter. There is something about these activities that helps clear our thoughts. If you are troubled by an old angry demon, be aware that it is looking for a fresh perspective. Work it out with a heavy project, or write it out in a journal and consider how time has altered your attitude.

Aries If you feel anger brewing below the surface, speak up during a quiet moment of conversation. Don't ignore it or a sudden and unexpected episode this week may cause you to explode. Your reflexes and reactions may be too quick for your highest good. Use caution when driving, dealing with tools, and in exercise. Bywords for the week: "steady" and "careful."

Taurus Intimate encounters, whether sexual or otherwise, may be unusually intense and compulsive. You have a need to find the bottom line in any personal relationship and likely will pursue a question issue until you are satisfied. Use caution with this if you are dealing with an Aries, Leo, Scorpio, or Aquarius, because it could backfire.

Gemini Love life, romance, and relationship(s) to children are favored this week. You may need to concentrate in order to avoid critics, whether internal or external. Instead of blame, use the discipline to tackle a project that requires concentration. Avoid contracts and business negotiations right now because misunderstandings may develop.

Cancer This is a particularly favorable time to discuss important personal issues with a trusted friend, counselor, or family member. The temptation toward obsessive-compulsive activity is strong and could take you away from the path you are presently traveling. Home and hearth will be your haven.

Leo You and your partner may need some time apart and this is a good time to take it. Otherwise, old issues may suddenly rise out of nowhere and generate dramatic disagreements. If difficulties arise, count to 10 and return to your corner to clarify thoughts before speaking. Give special attention to the lead paragraph.

Virgo Beware of the tendency to obsess over matters that may never happen. You are tempted to see the world through a dark lens this week and you may think that is the truth. It's more likely that the pessimistic version is extreme. If there is something you can actually do to make things better, then hop on it. Otherwise, set worry on the back burner.

Libra This week you will likely attract others toward you. You can talk another into almost anything, so don't try unless you are certain you want the intended outcome. New relationships fare better than old ones. Aspects favor long distance travel, contacts through the Internet, educational and spiritual pursuits.

Scorpio Give particular attention to the lead paragraph. Sudden and unexpected events may upset routines at work or at home. You may be more comfortable if you work alone right now. It seems no one else can keep pace with your agenda. Use caution when driving, dealing with tools, and in exercise.

Sagittarius You may be sorely tempted to force your will upon others, or to manipulate them into giving you what you want. Outworn patterns of behavior (such as escapism) may surface unbidden to protect you from dealing directly with hurt, anger or pain. If this occurs, be quiet with yourself until you feel collected. Then return with an open heart.

Capricorn This is a good week to concentrate on a challenging mental project. It will work better if you are revising, editing, or itemizing details. If you are producing a creative work, you are likely to be overly critical of the outcome. Activities involving joint resources, estates, insurance, and taxes are favored.

Aquarius Partners and significant others may be in short-temper mode this week. Give each other a lot of space to pursue your own agendas. If anger is already brewing, then consider carefully what you need to say and create a quiet time in a private place to discuss it. Use caution when driving, dealing with tools, and in exercise.

Pisces If you have been on a self-improvement program of any type, the outcome is now demonstrable. If, on the other hand, you have been avoiding a project in self-improvement that you know you need to accomplish, the consequences are equally visible. You'll need time to accommodate unexpected changes.
