Unless you were born within two hours of dawn, your star sign may baffle you. The moment of your first breath determines your ascendant sign. Chances are slim (one in 12) that your two signs match, and it’s probable that another sign’s forecast better suits you. You can easily find your chart on the Internet. Read your ascendant first. This simple adjustment may make you a believer. For a personal reading, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
This is a critical cycle for mental chaos: no more opinions. Reconsider a financial plan, but take others’ advice with the proverbial grain of salt. Avoid the promise, as unexpected changes can alter outcomes. Quiet contemplation rules.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Mercury retrograde in Cancer makes the sensitive crab prone to trusting feeling over intellect — excellent for retreats and getaways, but treacherous in the world. Nurturance of others is fortunate for you. Nest for a few weeks.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
Pesky Neptune shows you all the kingdoms of the world, and you are tempted to do something rash. Frustration is understood, but must be swallowed in the face of new obstacles. The test climaxes soon. Persevere.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Alliances are now so self-absorbed that they even create extra work. If there ever was a time to go solo, it’s now! You can accomplish much by taking back the energy for yourself. They won’t miss their water until the well runs dry. Quit.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
People who nurture your projects could mutiny. To prevent this, use the schmooze generally reserved for clients. True, the minions could never maneuver with your skill, but remember that they make you legitimate. Clean up old stuff.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Those who forget history beg to repeat it, and you have no time to go backward. You have developed something over the last few weeks, but you’re not ready to take it to the streets. Plan from behind the scenes. Host a quiet meeting.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
During this seemingly placid social season, your job must uncover some hidden motivations that, left unchecked, will cripple future goals. It’s not so much what they say, but why they say it. Truth is obscured by desires. Be vigilant.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Tempted to pursue a secret alliance, one who would be royalty seduces you. Power is an aphrodisiac, so consider your compulsive reactions. Partners are currently helpless. Cut them slack, but avoid personal involvement.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Heed cosmic law. Do not elevate your employees, assistants, vendors, etc., to partners. It’s easier to foster a promotion when the work is so intense. They do not contribute to the structure, only its support. Fly solo.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
If you have created a domestic power base in the last few months, with a new system of order and priorities, you can run the world from the patio. Private space supports worldly plans for the cooler months. Stay home and strategize.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
Communications have so many do-overs that no one seems to know the page. You feel nature is more attuned than your intellect. This is a time of primal growth; put your hands in food, garden, and décor. Nurture a sibling situation.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Lately an avenging angel in your spiritual life has held you accountable like a mean stepmother. But you cause your own pain with this inner criticism. Focus on one goal, complete the mission, and the list vaporizes.
