Aries (March 21 – April 19)
You hit the pavement running as you enter 2010. For the first time in 15 years, you’re ready to demand the right to be yourself. The first eight months of this year are playful, flirtatious and fun-loving. You’re passionate and keen to explore sexual boundaries because you see sex as a form of self-expression. Don’t worry about going off the rails, because you insist on doing what you want to do—you’re testing your limits. Creative and artistic activities and everything to do with sports, the entertainment world, the hospitality industry and working with children are areas in which you’ll excel. This year is thrilling because your ruler, Mars (a fiery, sexual planet), makes you vigorous, self-confident and dynamic. You’ll put as much energy into work as you will into having fun. Relationships with bosses, parents and VIPs are good. (You won’t threaten them, but you won’t back down either.) Surprisingly, as your confidence grows, so does your level of compassion for others. How nice.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
You’re extremely popular this year! Don’t let too much time go by before this really dawns on you. Accept all invitations. Reach out and interact with others in a more dynamic, forceful way than you might usually do, because that’s what this year is all about. Everyone wants to see your face. While you’re schmoozing, do discuss your hopes and dreams for the future. Why? Because this planetary configuration indicates that feedback from others will help you with tips, connections, introductions and useful data. Meanwhile, tension at home requires patience and tolerance with loved ones. Residential moves and redecorating projects could create chaos and insane activity until late summer. Top up your wine rack, and buy lots of fresh flowers to offset the frustration of short-term failures.
Your mantra “I’m popular, and others are helping me. Yay!”

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Not since 1998 has fortune beamed on you with such brilliance. Lucky moneybags Jupiter is starting to move across the top of your chart, calling attention to your career and public reputation. Expect a promotion in your job, public recognition for your work or any other favourable situation where you need the endorsement of others. Some of you might switch to jobs that are more travel-oriented or related to publishing, the media, medicine or the law. Many of you will enjoy more work-related travel. Your daily tempo is faster and more active. Short trips, increased reading, studying and writing and much to-ing and fro-ing with errands, plus conversations with practically everyone, are just part of what keeps you racing. It’s a fabulous year for writers, teachers, actors, salespeople and anyone in communications.
Your mantra “I am open to new things because success is knocking at my door.”

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Get ready for an exciting year ahead because you’re going to push beyond your boundaries and limitations. Your desires to expand your world through travel and gain more experience and knowledge will come true! You’ll have more travel opportunities than you’ve had in over a decade. Furthermore, you’ll have chances to take courses, return to school, get increased training or apprentice in some way, so that you can learn a new skill or enhance your life experiences. This year is also a consciousness-expanding year for you. Lofty discussions about philosophy, politics and religion, as well as explorations into self-help concepts or groups, will inspire and edify you. You’re not afraid to work hard for your earnings this year; what’s different is that you are spending a lot. Obviously, you see the justification. (You’re prudent with your cash.) Romance with someone from another culture or a different country can blossom. (Be still, my beating heart!)

Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22)
Goodies are going to spill from the coffers of others right into your pocket this year. Yay! Some of you will inherit; others will get money back from the government or from insurance payouts. Many of you will benefit because your partners will earn more. You’ll also have the use of things that other people own; in addition, people will actually give you goodies. The big news is all about Mars and your sign. Mars rules your muscles, aggression and sex drive. Once every two years, it stays in your sign for seven weeks. This year, Mars is staying until June—half the year! This totally amps your energy, ambition and sexual desires. Once those taps open and you begin to luxuriate in all these extra treasures, you feel turned on! Not only are you turned on love-wise; you’re just turned on by life.
Your mantra “I welcome the abundance coming my way!”

Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)
It has been 12 years since lucky Jupiter sat directly across from you at the table—it’s opposite your sign for all of 2010, which means that this is a time of culmination in your life. Your chance for success is now much improved! This success will be worldly in terms of money, reputation or all of the above. Whatever it is, you’ll feel satisfied and rewarded. Because things are going so well, this is really a good time to push the boundaries and encourage growth in many areas. You will acquire money, prestige and possessions—things that make you feel affluent or richer. You will also enjoy enriched relationships with partners and close friends. People from foreign places and other cultures will enter your world as well. You’ll find that intimate relationships will be consciousness-expanding. This could be why many of you will have a secret love affair this year. Working with charities or volunteering will bring much satisfaction and happiness.

Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)
This year, you can beautifully improve your work life. Either you will get a better job, improve your existing job or get a promotion or a raise—or your dreadful co-worker or boss will be transferred to Nunavut. Whatever happens, you come out smelling like a rose! The bottom line is that you’re going to discover greater work satisfaction this year. In the same wonderful way, your health will improve in 2010. Ailments will decrease, and your vigour and energy will multiply. Expect to have extra physical strength and vitality. If, for some reason, you need to heal some part of your body, it will heal quickly. While these good things are taking place, you’ll be more involved in physical activities with others, especially groups. In fact, you’ll be competitive. This could lead to dissension with one particular person, however. This is not the year to be a loner. Au contraire! You’ll benefit from co- operating with others. Be specific about forming your goals now so that you can actively pursue them. (Woody Allen once said: “Eighty percent of success in life is just showing up.”)

Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)
Mom always liked you best. In many ways, you’re the winner this year because the areas that suddenly leap forward with energy and blessings are all about love affairs, romance and fun. This blessed part of your chart also rules sports (whether you’re a participant or a spectator) and all creative endeavours. You will appreciate and thrive in the arts. You’ll also take a special vacation in 2010. Whether you’re in a partnership or not, you’ll attract flirtatious encounters. (Just remember: Don’t blow something solid for a mere bonbon.) It’s all fun, feel-good stuff this year! However, this doesn’t mean you’re partying the year away. Oh, no! Fiery Mars is at the top of your chart until August, arousing your ambition and making you demand the advantage. In fact, you’re so strong that conflict with authority figures (and co-workers) might occur.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)
In 2010, abundance is yours, and it’s close to home. This is your year to enjoy family relationships and open your home to friends and relatives. You’ll encourage meetings and groups to gather where you live, especially to learn something new. It’s a great year to buy, sell or invest. If you can’t do this, then buy whatever you can to enhance your current home because this will please you. You want to enjoy the richness of where you live and share it with others. You feel unusually generous with family members; in turn, your family and loved ones will be a source of joy to you. All this increases your inner confidence, in part because you have a sense of belonging. Another reason this is a happy year is that it’s easy to pursue the things you love—long-distance travel, higher education and the exploration of profound ideas and philosophies.

This year is filled with optimism for all Capricorns. You are very close to reaching a peak in your life—a special time when you feel satisfied with what you have accomplished. Perhaps this is why your enthusiasm for life is so fired up this year: You sense what destiny has in store for you. This is also why your plans are bigger and more expansive. This year, you’ll attract others—especially siblings and relatives— because of your big ideas. This will be a busy, fast-paced year as well. And it will be busier in the bedroom too! Sex will be passionate, frequent and highly physical, at least until late summer. Disputes about shared property could arise.

Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb.18)
This is one of the best years in over a decade for you to get a new job or make a little extra money on the side. Jupiter, the planet of wealth, is travelling through your House of Earnings this year. You’ll feel richer and more flush. You’ll consider spending on a level you would normally never entertain. (Remember the saying: “If you have to ask the price of the yacht, you can’t afford it.”) These feelings will also increase your positive self-image. Until late summer, fiery Mars is opposing your sign and stirring up trouble with partnerships.

Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20)
Lucky moneybags Jupiter is going to be in Pisces for all of 2010. This makes you Queen for a Year! The last time this happened was around 1998. However, other planets were in different positions then, so it’s similar but not the same. Plus, you’re smarter now. You know how to capitalize on opportunities. Because Mars is making a most unusual transit (for the first time since 1995), you’re energized to work tirelessly to achieve what you want. You’ll also be good at delegating. As wonderful opportunities and influential people are continually attracted to you this year, you’ll acquire more confidence and poise. You’re going to gain a lot of class this year because you’ll learn how to rise to the good things that are bestowed upon you. This proves that nothing succeeds like success.
Your mantra “I must make the most of this time of good fortune.”
