aries (Mar. 21st-Apr. 20th)
Danger ahead. Proceed with caution. Go slow. Watch for sharp turns in the road. Get AAA for your genitals.

taurus (Apr. 21st-May 20th)
Taking risks is only admirable when the results are positive. Wow, it’s really brave to jump out of a plane so you can tell all your friends what it feels like to soar with the birds; it’s utterly stupid when the chute doesn’t open. It’s wildly romantic to marry someone you met ten days ago in Vegas; it’s idiotic when they turn out to be emotionally unstable psychos you have to divorce within six months. It’s courageous to quit your high-paying day-job to pursue your dreams and become a professional karaoke artist touring the karaoke contest circuit . . . No, that’s stoopid whether it works out or not. The point is, just like battles, you’ve got to choose your risks carefully too. Especially this week. Otherwise, putting your heart on the line might result in it getting run over.

gemini (May 21st-June 21st)
Love is likely to develop in the strangest ways this week. Kind of like when people used to pick up the wrong roll of film from the photo lab and discover exactly what their next-door neighbor liked to do with his . . . . Except, with love, it’s a nice surprise, and we don’t call it “gross,” we call it “serendipity.”

cancer (June 22nd-July 22nd)
You know how some weeks you feel like you could pull off the Kama Sutra’s “Feeding the Peacock” and “Riding the Elephant” before breakfast? And other weeks you need twenty minutes of pre-sex stretching just to get near the missionary position? Well, this week you’re going to be a veritable vertical 69-ing, reverse-butterfly-kissing sexpert. And that twenty minutes of stretching? An especially good idea.

leo (July 23rd-Aug. 22nd)
At some point this week, you may suddenly find yourself singing, “I can’t fight this feeling anymore. ” We have our fingers crossed for you that this urge strikes you in the shower, but we can’t make any promises. You shouldn’t, though. Fight this feeling, that is. Tell the world (and one person in particular) exactly how you feel — in song and dance, if need be.

virgo (Aug. 23rd-Sept. 22nd)
Practice quid pro quo in the bedroom this week — if you want snuggles, then snuggle first; if you want oral sex, be the first to head south; if you want to splosh, pay for the groceries. Sexual karma is a boomerang.

libra (Sept. 23rd-Oct. 23rd)
We don’t have many golden rules (and we often break them if the stars are insistent enough) but we have yet to meet anyone who was successfully set up on a blind date by a member of their family. Have you? Remember the sweater your aunt gave you on your birthday — you want that person picking out a partner for you? We thought not. A family member may try to coerce you into giving love a chance this week (and no, we don’t mean in any incestuous way, sickos); tell them (very nicely) that you’re all set for now.

scorpio (Oct. 24th-Nov. 22nd)
If we weren’t such generous, kind, selfless people, we’d say, “Stop polluting the dating pool!” Your charm is raising the bar so high the rest of us just can’t compete. Fortunately, it makes us happy when you get laid.

sagittarius (Nov. 23rd-Dec. 21st)
Your heart is a muscle, and for argument’s sake, let’s pretend your genitals are too. If you exercise them properly, they’ll become stronger. And everyone knows exercise is an endorphin inducer, an antidepressant and a sexiness promoter. This week, it’s time to get physical, like in that Olivia Newton John video, sans the leg warmers.

capricorn (Dec. 22nd-Jan. 20th)
Take it easy. The more you push someone into an intimate situation the more he or she will be reluctant, slap you in the face or press charges. Didn’t you ever hear that story when you were a kid about the contest between the Wind and the Sun to see who could get the man’s jacket off, and the Wind was all cocky and macho, boasting about his power and strength like a fraternity date rapist, and the Sun was super laid back with a big smile on his face like he had just smoked a big fatty, and the Wind got all up in the man’s face trying to force it off which only made the man button up his jacket tighter while the Sun just sat back and shined and shined and quickly got the man to happily take his jacket off? If it had been an “adult” book, the Sun could have just kept shining, getting the man so hot and bothered that he had to unbutton his shirt, then pull down his pants, and then, aw yeah, slowly, oh so slowly, take off his tight, white Calvin Kleins to reveal his . . . Anyway, you get the picture.

aquarius (Jan. 21st-Feb. 18th)
Maybe you don’t buy all that stuff about how arm-crossing is a sign of defensiveness, avoiding eye contact is a sign of evasiveness and a slap in the face is a sign of slight perturbance. But you really ought to give lip-licking a try this week. Sensual body language will only work in your favor. So the next time you’re in the presence of someone you fancy, stroke the stem of your wine glass, playfully touch their forearm as you laugh at their jokes, hold that stare a little longer. Just stop short of drooling and sticking your tongue in their ear.

pisces (Feb. 19th-Mar. 20th)
It’s in the bag, baby. Just say the word, and everything your heart desires will be yours. At least, romantically speaking. When it comes to career success, financial stability and spiritual tranquility, you’ll actually have to get off your ass and work for a change.
