Aries—You’ve been staying up later than usual trying to reconcile your expectation to reality. Accept the situation for what it is and move on. Maybe there’s nothing amazing coming around the corner, but you can make it seem better by laughing at yourself. If laughter fails, try helping someone in need. Your moviescope is (500) Days of Summer and your fantasy creature is a kelpie.
Taurus—You’ve been spending some time contemplating the universe and your next move within it. Perhaps you should read up on philosophy or science to expand your knowledge and impress friends. Who knew discussing the multiverse over pho could open the path to coolness. Your albumscope is the Cocteau Twins’ Four Calendar Café and your dimension is the fifth.
Gemini—You’ve recently done something that scares you and managed to get through it okay. Now is a good time to reacquaint yourself with someone special and show them the new you. It may be blissful to live in the glow of romance, but don’t forget about work. Your artscope is Fuseli’s The Nightmare and your lucky charm is an equal sided cross.
Cancer—Lately, you’ve been asking for more attention from someone you really care about, but they have a lot on their plate right now, as do you. When work schedules slow down a bit and things are taken care of at home, you two will spend more quality time together. In the mean time, take care of yourself and get your work done. Your bookscope is Me Talk Pretty One Day and your shape is a circle.
Leo—That all important task you’ve been putting off is creeping up on you and it’s about to hit you like a tidal wave. Don’t panic, just figure out how to get it taken care of and remain calm. You can do it, even in a crunch. Soon you’ll be back to your slightly less busy schedule. Your moviescope is The Last of the Mohicans and your drink is a White Russian.
Virgo—You’ve recently gone back to an old haunt and everyone has a million questions to ask you. Humor them, but don’t reveal too much as this group tends to do a lot of gossiping. Invest time in family and rearranging or decorating your space instead of getting caught up in the scene. Your albumscope is Nick Cave’s Murder Ballads and your number is 14.
Libra—You are the task master this week, but why not play to your strengths and get some people to help out?

Scorpio—You’re feeling pretty down lately, but your best bud is there to keep you afloat. Make some time for hanging out to show how much you appreciate all they’ve done. Why not shoot some pool or go bowling to recuperate? Your bookscope is Lynda Barry’s Cruddy and your tarot card is The Hanged Man.

Midweek brings tasks to the foreground and you will need to address some group dynamic issues. Your televisionscope is Arrested Development and your fruit is a banana.
Capricorn—Stop and think before you speak this week. You want everyone involved to understand your meaning to avoid confusion down the road. Once everything is in order, you can figure out your next move. Enjoy some relaxing downtime after things clear up. Your moviescope is Sweet Land and your texture is denim.
Aquarius—Someone is impressed with your dedication to your work. Keep showing them you’re the right person for the job by maintaining professionalism and offering to do extra help.

Pisces—Someone or something is making an exit or moving away just about now. It’s hitting you harder than you let on, but time doesn’t change this particular relationship.
