aries (Mar. 21st-Apr. 20th)
There are two schools of thought when it comes to the school dance: Cling to the wall until you spy the perfect Astaire to your Rogers, or get on the dance floor asap and shake your thang while you wait. Remember the dance-off scene in Grease? Yeah, Sandy didn’t go home with Danny that night, did she? Nope, he hooked up with the bad girl (who, hello, looked about thirty-five!) from the next town over who was dirty dancing right next to them with his best friend.

taurus (Apr. 21st-May 20th)
Don’t be too quick to make excuses for your partner. As Frenchy advised a lovelorn Sandy, men can be dogs (women, too). Worse than that, fleas on dogs. Worse than that, amoebas on fleas on dogs, so lowly even the dogs won’t bite them. Have a quiet one this week and enjoy some nights in with the gang.

gemini (May 21st-June 21st)
You’ve got chills, they’re multiplying. And you’re losing control. ‘Cause the power s/he’s supplying, it’s electrifying. Go with the electric flow this week —- let someone know that they’re the one that you want. Ooh, ooh, ooh. Honey.

cancer (June 22nd-July 22nd)
Don’t take a Scorpion (not to be confused with a Scorpio) to the high school dance just because your original date fell through. Scorpions may have hot cars, but most of them are ugly and pockmarked on the inside. Stay on your own turf.

leo (July 23rd-Aug. 22nd)
Talking can be so futile, which is why all the characters in Grease spend so much time singing and dancing. No one’s ever made a soundtrack of the inane dialogue in that flick for a reason. Come up with your own musical number this week —- make it catchy and flashy, play out to the rafters, do the hand jive, etc.

virgo (Aug. 23rd-Sept. 22nd)
Back down a little. Your aggressive nature is likely to get you into trouble this week. Let your partner set the standards for a change. Otherwise, you might find yourself stranded at the drive-in, branded a fool. And then what will they say, Monday at school?

libra (Sept. 23rd-Oct. 23rd)
So, you’re hopelessly devoted, eh? Don’t wallow in your crush while wearing a flowery nightgown and writing sappy love letters that you’ll never send. Instead, be like Rizzo and shimmy down the drainpipe to get your kicks while you’re still young enough to get them.

scorpio (Oct. 24th-Nov. 22nd)
When everyone is whining about what a hunk of junk Kenickie’s new automotive purchase is, Danny convinces the crew —- with pelvic thrusts and dirty talk -— that the car could be systematic, automatic, and hydromatic (whatever the hell that means). Use your powers of persuasion this week to get people interested in your own greased lightnin’.

sagittarius (Nov. 23rd-Dec. 21st)
There are worse things you could do, than go with a boy or two. Sure, but there are better things, too —- like using your brain for a change.

capricorn (Dec. 22nd-Jan. 20th)
We know it’s tempting to suggest your partner try a Sandy makeover (the nights you’ve spent wishing they’d show up with big hair and rip your cardigan right off). But this week, try to remember that he or she is not your Barbie or Ken to play dress-up with —- do your best to enjoy them just the way they are. Dorky bangs and all.

aquarius (Jan. 21st-Feb. 18th)
It’s a bomb to Kenickie’s delicate ego when Rizzo tells him her potential pregnancy is “somebody else’s mistake.” If you don’t treat your own partner with more sensitivity than that, you risk ruining your happy ending at the graduation carnival.

pisces (Feb. 19th-Mar. 20th)
Your actions will be all it will take to win your lover’s affection. So either letter in track like Danny Zuko, or become a black spandex-wearing slut like Sandy Olsson.
