Apr 28, 2013 at 10:00 p.m. ET

You’ll be extremely touchy about anyone horning in on your turf this week – especially when it comes to your man. Taurus is the zodiac sign of mine in Astrology. It believes that good fences make good neighbors and separate medicine cabinets are the secret to any long lasting relationship. Usually Taurus energy is pretty sedate except for when Mars stirs things up like it will on Tuesday. We’re not exactly predicting a catfight but you will take down any woman who’s thinking of making a play for your guy. And you’ll take him down too if he doesn’t keep his hands to himself.

You'll be extremely touchy about anyone horning in on your turf this week — especially when it comes to your man. Taurus is the zodiac sign of "mine" in astrology. It believes that good fences make good neighbors and separate medicine cabinets are the secret to any long lasting relationship. Usually Taurus energy is pretty sedate except for when Mars stirs things up like it will on Tuesday. We're not exactly predicting a catfight, but you will take down any woman who's thinking of making a play for your guy. And you'll take him down too if he doesn't keep his hands to himself.


ARIES (March 20-April 18)

How well do you co-habit? You'll find out this week when Mars in Taurus brings out all of your territorial tendencies. It could start with you flying into a rage about the raised toilet seat on Tuesday followed by an escalation in tensions over money on Thursday and then climaxing with you kicking him out of your bed on Friday because he thrashes around in his sleep. You may think you're being fair and long suffering, but guess what? You're not. Cut the poor SOB some slack.


TAURUS (April 19-May 19)

The more you push, the more your sexually withholding paramour will dig in his heels. He's not in the mood and needs his space. Intellectually you understand, but Mars in Taurus is aggressive. Named after the Roman god of conquests, it doesn't take no for an answer. Mars takes what it wants when it wants it. How do you handle this compulsive energy? Do something Mars-y. Hit the gym, add extra laps, or try cold showers. It should take the edge off. Guys have been doing it for years.


GEMINI (May 20-June 19)

Listen to yourself this week. If you tell more than three girlfriends that they can do better than the guys that they're with, then there's some serious projecting going on. In fact, this says more about you — and the state of affairs with your beau — than it does about them. Own your frustration (anger maybe?) and think about what you want to say to him. You have enough trouble managing the guy in your life without mixing it up with gal pals too.


CANCER (June 20-July 21)

Letting someone be there for you is one of the hardest things to do. Underneath you see yourself as vulnerable and needy. It's why you work hard to show that nothing fazes you. But sometimes you can send the wrong message — which is that you don't need anyone. This can keep people at arm's length when what you want to do is welcome them into the warm embrace of who you are. Open up on Wednesday. Remember that people who need people are the luckiest people in the world.


LEO (July 22-Aug. 21)

The body has appetites. And when it craves things like food, sleep and sex, then it can get pretty insistent if it doesn't get its way. Cranky even, like a 2-year-old. This goes for both men and women. Love, however, asks that you bring something more meaningful to the table. Take this week to add something more nutritional to your daily diet — something that connects you to him deeply and emotionally. There have been too many nights of takeout and you guys need a full course meal.


VIRGO (Aug. 22-Sept. 21)

This would be the perfect time to get away if you can. Both of you are so hooked into your routines that it's gotten so that you now wave to each other from opposite sides of your daily agendas. It would be great if you could book a trip for the weekend. And if you can't? Then schedule a date night for Wednesday or Friday. Tell him you need to reacquaint yourself with the guy you fell in love with before you forget what he used to look like.


LIBRA (Sept. 22-Oct. 21)

A lot of things were said and done recently that you regret. On one hand, you needed to express yourself and that's good. However, it has also left a yawning divide between you and your partner that is both awkward and unmistakable. It's time to remember that you were born under an air sign and air signs are the bridge builders of the zodiac. Reach out across the aisle and you'll see him reach back on May 1. He doesn't want to be at odds any more than you do.


SCORPIO (Oct. 22-Nov. 20)

Don't blame your spouse for preventing you from living a more fulfilling life. Saturn in Scorpio is bound to make you feel frustrated and repressed and it makes perfect sense that you would target your spouse as the reason why. But relationships can provide wonderful vehicles for procrastination which means that you should ask yourself if you're using the demands of everyday life to put off doing the things that you want to be doing. If you are, then the culprit is you — and not your partner.


SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 21-Dec. 20)

You could find yourself embroiled in a soap opera this week. It began innocently enough with listening to a colleague divulge his troubles or being there to console a girlfriend's husband in his time of need. But this person's looking for more than just a shoulder to lean on as you will discover on May 1. Usually you'd withdraw discreetly, but he's already told others about his feelings for you. Expect to do a lot of damage control over the weekend as you try to set the record straight.


CAPRICORN (Dec. 21-Jan. 18)

You told yourself you weren't looking for anything serious and it looks like he'll get the message on Tuesday. And the result will be that once he leaves, you will start pining away for him like nobody's business. What is it about love that makes us discredit it when we have it and yearn for it when we don't? It's as old as Tristan and Isolde. Thankfully it won't take you hundreds of years to figure out the answer. You can settle it all with one quick phone call.


AQUARIUS (Jan. 19-Feb. 17)

You'll certainly be getting very cuddly this week. You may even find yourself following your partner around from room to room and calling up every 45 minutes to see how he's doing. What gives? This isn't like you. Earth energy is bonding energy and when you have a lot of earth energy coursing through your horoscope like you do now, then you want to be physically close to that special someone. It can also make you clingy — which isn't the worst thing. Men like to feel needed you know.


PISCES (Feb. 18-March 19)

If you keep repeating the same relationship pattern, then you need to take a look at your behavior and not the guy's. He's just trying to figure out your signals. Whether it's your fear of repeating a past mistake that makes you hesitate or feeling like the person you're really meant to be with is still out there somewhere, your basic problem seems to be with living in the present moment. Love the one you're with. You may discover that he's who you've been looking for all along.
