An end to the craziness

ARIES (March 20-April 18)
You have no problem being single which means that you have to come up with a compelling reason to be in a relationship. What do you want in a mate? That's the burning question on the 24th. Chances are it's a comrade-in-arms, someone you can go on adventures with and who you know will always have your back. If that vaguely describes the fellow that you're seeing now, then tell him quick. The reason he's on the verge of leaving is because you don't make him feel needed.
TAURUS (April 19-May 19)
You were born under Venus, the planet of love and harmony. You don't do breakups. Your partner does. It sounds straightforward until you find yourself in a situation where you are waiting on someone to make a move that he has no intention of making — even if you both know that your relationship isn't working. It may not be in the best interest of your partner to break up; however, it may be in yours. If that's true, then you will have to be the one to initiate it.
GEMINI (May 20-June 19)
You've been undergoing dramatic changes in your love life for two years and this week it comes to a head. This is when you will answer the question: Do I stay or do I go? Jupiter, the “anywhere but here” planet, will be pushing you to move on. And that's the right thing to do if you have exhausted all efforts to make your relationship work. If you're still on the fence, then you will come face to face with a compelling reason to stay on the 24th.
CANCER (June 20-July 21)
Your relationship to love is a lot like your relationship to food which makes perfect sense since your Ruling Planet, the Moon, rules the stomach. If you see your cupboards as bare, then you will fixate on filling them. This can make you needy and hungry for more. If you see your cupboards as well stocked, then you will be the nurturer. You will give rather than take. Love is less about what's in the cupboard and more about your relationship to plenty in your life.
LEO (July 22-Aug. 21)
Infatuation is a necessary evil. You can't fall head over heels in love without it. This week friends will caution you to not wear your heart on your sleeve and loved ones will tell you that everything you're saying about this guy you've said a hundred times before. Guess what? They're right. But that's because people haven't changed the way they've fallen in love for centuries. Enjoy the magic while it lasts and when the spell lifts, you may awake to discover that you're still into him anyway.
VIRGO (Aug. 22-Sept. 21)
Don't throw away your career for him. You might laugh but the signs of this are already creeping in. The self-sacrificing influence of Neptune is very powerful now and it could lead to putting your own ambitions on hold, cutting back on work hours because you're needed at home, or feeling like you don't want anything to cut into your special time with him. Get over it. Relationships and careers aren't either/or choices. You can be married to your job and to him. It's the new polygamy.
LIBRA (Sept. 22-Oct. 21)
Expect the game board to get flipped over and the pieces to go flying on Monday when Uranus forms a square to Pluto. You may be shocked by what comes out of your lover's mouth, but you won't be surprised. If anything, you might even be relieved because he's saying the things that you never could. But moments of truth don't have to result in departure. Sometimes they can bring people together after months of traveling on parallel paths. He's said his piece. The next move is yours.
SCORPIO (Oct. 22-Nov. 20)
You may feel embarrassed by who's crushing on you now. Usually you go for moody, manly men types like Russell Crowe or Denzel Washington. So how did you wind up with a pretty boy who looks like Robert Pattinson? Blame it on the Sun in Gemini mixing it up in your solar house of sex and sexuality. Gemini energy is youthful energy and you could use some of that right now. Just check his ID first to make sure that he's really as old as he says he is.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 21-Dec. 20)
For two years, you've dealt with comings and goings of an on-again off-again relationship. It hasn't been easy nor has it been dull, but you're ready for some clarity. The day of reckoning will be on May 24 when the eclipse cycle that has bedeviled the love lives of Geminis and Sagittarians everywhere comes to an end. This is when you will learn if you're going to live with him or without him. At this point, one is probably as good as the other, so either way you win.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 21-Jan. 18)
Revolutionary developments on the 20th show that the stars still have some surprises up their sleeve when it comes to your love life. In fact, the more you try to pursue the person you think you should be with, the more you keep bumping into the one you tried to write off. It's vexing, but then this is the stuff that romantic comedies are made of. You might want to stop struggling against the current of events and accept that this is a match made by the heavens.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 19-Feb. 17)
This won't be an easy week for you emotionally. The Uranus/Pluto square on Monday is dredging up things from your past and making you feel vulnerable, exposed, and like maybe you should be talking to Dr. Phil. Actually the planets are pushing you to clean out your psychic closets. This is the perfect time to bundle up those grudges, scorecards and resentments you've been harboring and to put them out on the street for garbage pick-up. You will feel so much better after you've unloaded these gripes and grievances.
PISCES (Feb. 18-March 19)
“Be here now” is your mantra for this week. Stop projecting into the future, yearning for things you can't have and rummaging through your past lives searching for the karmic backstory. The secret to happiness is in recognizing that the present moment holds just about everything you're looking for. Inhabit your heart and you will move yourself out of the unavailable column and into the available column. You will also start to attract people who see in you the glowing traces of their soul mate.
