Back Down to Earth

You've had six weeks of reckless passion coursing through your horoscope and it all comes to an end on Thursday. This is when you come back down to earth and have to decide if you want this guy or not. If you choose to pursue a relationship, then you will have to be prepared to face certain realities like telling the person you're currently in a relationship with that you found somebody else or meeting your new boo's hard-to-please parents and/or explaining to the U.S. government that your sweetheart's visa should be extended because you're in love. Good luck!


ARIES (March 20-April 18)

You're going to have to ask yourself do you really want him for him? Or do you want him because somebody else does? You were born under an extremely competitive sign and you enjoy beating out your rivals. And it looks like the competition for this guy was pretty fierce. But sometimes beating out the competition is more thrilling than the prize itself. It might explain the sudden letdown on the 19th.


TAURUS (April 19-May 19)

Your love life gets more loving again when Ruling Planet Venus enters Taurus on Monday. It's been a battle of the sexes since March 21 and you've had about all you can take. You were born under the planet of “make love, not war” and now that Venus is in your sign, you can start rebuilding some of those bridges that got burned. One of these involves a close friend who got caught in the middle. An apology to her is long overdue.


GEMINI (May 20-June 19)

You were under the impression that things were over, but evidently the guy you were seeing didn't get the memo. This is what happens when you date by tweet and break up by Instagram. Sometimes you just have to take the time to spell things out — literally. Clearly there were misunderstandings on both sides and even though you may not have started out on the same page, you're still reading from the same book. You might consider giving him a second chance on Friday.


CANCER (June 20-July 21)

Slow on the uptake? Maybe. But then you wouldn't be the first Cancer who missed the love interest standing next to her because she was fixated on some other guy she couldn't have. Thankfully the first quarter Moon on Thursday shows you picking up the clue phone. In all honesty, you knew there were feelings all along. It's just that you didn't want to jeopardize your friendship. But isn't it better to fall in love with a friend than to pine away for someone who barely remembers your name?


LEO (July 22-Aug. 21)

What will you do for love and money? You'll find out over the next four weeks with three planets arcing over the solar midheaven of your horoscope. Just remember what Marilyn Monroe once said: “Hollywood is a place where they will pay you a thousand dollars for a kiss and 50 cents for your soul.” You may not be a film star, but you still don't want to let the dollar signs get in your eyes. Side with your heart and you can't go wrong.


VIRGO (Aug. 22-Sept. 21)

This week you will be breaking every rule in the book — including ones that didn't even make it into the final draft. What gives? Are you out to sabotage yourself at every turn? Chances are the old rules don't apply anymore and you're looking for some new ones. But don't be too quick to draft up some cobbled together copy when you're so unclear about what you want and why. Let experience be your guide and master now.


LIBRA (Sept. 22-Oct. 21)

Ruling Planet Venus enters earthy Taurus on April 15. If your relationship is still standing, then you will know that you have been through the worst and that he's a keeper. It wasn't easy, but you know he's true blue. If you broke up, then rest assured that you are better off without this guy. It may not feel like it now, but it will in the weeks to come as your self-confidence, peace of mind and sense of humor return.


SCORPIO (Oct. 22-Nov. 20)

Mars cazimi on Wednesday could prove to be a bit of an eye-opener for you. Cazimi means “in the heart of the Sun” and any planet here will show off its better self. You may be called upon to make an extraordinary sacrifice for love — one that you really didn't think you could make. However, Mars will give you the strength and courage to do what's right. What you lose on the 17th, you will regain tenfold on July 21 when the Sun enters Leo.


SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 21-Dec. 20)

Sometimes people come into our lives for the purpose of getting us to make the bold moves we could never make on our own. This could be the reason behind your latest love affair. If not for him, you may never have decided to leave your previous relationship, job or dead-end lifestyle. Now that you have — and see that you can stand on your own two feet — you may find that your time together is drawing to a close. Thank him for the adventure and move on.


CAPRICORN (Dec. 21-Jan. 18)

You're generating a lot of interest these days, but it's never going to go anywhere if you keep finding fault with everyone who approaches you. You know that it's a defense mechanism (you've been doing it long enough), but do you understand how you're gradually painting yourself into a corner and that one day you won't be able to get out? Accept the fact that you're never going to find Mr. Right and try dating Mr. Wannabe instead. Who knows? He may wind up surprising you after all.


AQUARIUS (Jan. 19-Feb. 17)

Now that you're ready to commit, you'll see all sorts of crazy elements get thrown into the mix. You could hear from an ex of his that you never knew existed or someone else you always liked starts liking you back or he may reveal some information about himself that you could have happily lived without. So are any of these deal breakers? Not really. Just treat it all as part of the show because you know what you want and that you've made the right decision.


PISCES (Feb. 18-March 19)

If you haven't expressed what you feel already, then do it on Wednesday. Wait any longer and he's going to move on. The problem with being born under a sign that's as deeply empathetic as yours is that you assume that people are picking up on your signals — when they're not. What you see as not wanting to be a bother, he sees as you being uninterested. Say what's in your heart. Love is mysterious enough as it is. You don't need to turn it into a guessing game.
