For Monday, July 8, to Sunday, July 14, 2013
June 22-July 22
With the new moon in your sign, this is a great time for a "do over." If you've screwed things up in a relationship, make a fresh start. If you're single, this is the week to start finding great people to date instead of losers and addicts.
July 23-Aug. 22
A frisky moon is making it hard for you to focus on anything except sex. Your mind is in the gutter, and you can't bring it back to street level no matter how much you try. Find a way to express all that pent-up sexual energy.
Aug. 23-Sept. 22
You're in the mood to give advice to people, but nobody wants to hear it. You'll lecture your honey about his issues with his mother or tell your girlfriend the truth about her yucky ex. Unfortunately, no one cares. Blame Mercury.
Sept. 23-Oct. 23
You don't have the energy to deal with any relationship melodrama. Mars is making you super annoyed and tired. Don't engage in petty fights just because your honey is being weird or the dog is stressing you out.
Oct. 24-Nov. 21
Mercury is inspiring you to express yourself in sexy, flirty ways. You'll send a raunchy text message to someone just to see how he or she reacts. You'll write a love song for someone and upload it to YouTube. Do something that comes from the heart.
Nov. 22-Dec. 21
You'll want to experience some simple, romantic moments with a sweetheart. Venus is putting you in the mood for love. Even if you're just dating somebody you like instead of someone you adore, you'll want to schedule some affectionate time.
Saturn, your planetary ruler, goes direct this week. You'll find it easier to see what's going on in your relationship. You'll no longer have blinders on. If your boyfriend is really a jerk or your girlfriend is just using you, you'll finally figure it out.
Jan. 20-Feb. 18
With the moon opposite your sign, avoid making any big decisions. You'll probably be tempted to do something dramatic like get engaged or break up with someone. Don't do it! After a few days, you'll see that you were just in a bizarre mood.
Feb. 19-March 20
Others are bringing you nice energy, thanks to Mars. You'll receive compliments at work and flirtation wherever you go. People are finally starting to notice how fabulous and sexy you are. It's about freakin' time.
March 21-April 19
The moon is making you lusty. If you're single, you'll want to change that immediately. If you're in a relationship, you'll enjoy spending quality time with your honey. Turn off the TV, the phone and the text messages and just BE with your guy or gal.
April 20-May 20
Mercury is creating some doubt. You're wondering if you should have given that sexy stranger your phone number after talking with him for five minutes. You're questioning the wisdom of drunk dialing your ex and asking for a hookup. Too late.
May 21-June 21
You're going back and forth about a complicated relationship situation. If you've been with somebody for a while, you're worried that things are never going to improve. If you're single, you could be considering two different people you'd like to date. Mars says think carefully.
