ARIES (March 21 to April 20)
The winter sky makes you want to get to the bottom of things and bank on projects that will require lots of energy (this is a new revelation!). Take this opportunity to rethink your career and lay the groundwork for your success. When it comes to your heart, peaks of euphoria will strengthen your relationship. Still single? Take advantage of being in Venus’ good graces to meet new people – whether virtually or in person – and figure out what you really want.
TAURUS (April 21 to May 21)
Even women with tremendous patience like yours sometimes reach a point where they’ve had enough. Rest assured that the heavy planets that have been bothering you since last spring, are making way for a more positive influence this year. Expect flattering flirtations, tantalizing encounters and exciting diversions between the sheets. Do these pleasurable encounters turn into lasting relationships? No, but who cares?
GEMINI (May 22 to June 21)
True, if you were a cocktail, you’d be a mimosa – sparkling with hope and that hint of tartness that adds to your charm. But the bubbles can also go to your head and make you dizzy. So yes, keep things light, but not at the expense of your happiness, ok? You will thank me. What about that guy you’ve been interested in who makes you blush? Good news. It has the potential to become a love story just as exciting as it is unexpected. The year is starting out well for you!
CANCER (June 22 to July 22)
Misunderstandings, conflict and breakups… if autumn broke your heart, the first few months of this year will help to heal it. As of January you felt reinvigorated and free of the heavy heart that was weighing you down. In February you will be ready to take risks – for example, asking a friend: “Is your tennis instructor single?” And from March to May, I won’t even talk about your desire to open yourself up to love and its pleasures. You’ll have lots of opportunities to spice up your summer nights. Isn’t that exciting?

LEO (July 23 to August 23)
You and your partner will enjoy a blissful new year. Tender caresses, knowing touches and erotic games that stem from a wild imagination: the stars are rooting for you! And what other projects for two await? The longing to feather your nest, a desire to see the ocean, a longing to make a baby… All you have to do is open yourself up to all the good things that are in store.
VIRGO (August 24 to September 23)
Do not dispair, love hasn’t forgotten you! All in all, it’s just taking a break – a well-deserved vacation, if you will. I have to say you’ve kind of mismanaged your time. Do I have to remind you of the little incident with the Romeo (married, I should point out) in your office? Thank the stars that that little adventure didn’t go anywhere. I shudder to think of the catastrophe if it had gotten out!
LIBRA (September 24 to October 23)
You seem to have a tendency to dwell in the past. You would be well advised to sweep away any old regrets and resentments. This will help you open yourself up to love whether it happens now or in the future. As much as Venus and Jupiter will come together to fulfil your wildest wishes and dreams, Saturn will actually help make them a more tangible reality around Valentine’s Day. Doesn’t that seem to good to be true?
SCORPIO (October 24 to November 22)
Inherently seductive, you are pretty good at figuring out what men want. A curious gal who patiently waits for that one sign, you brilliantly manage to decipher the language of seduction even if it happens before your partner figures it out. So, how to explain your trouble with this latest guy’s advances? Could you be in love? Only your heart knows the answer. What have you got to lose by being honest with your feelings?

SAGITTARIUS (November 23 to December 21)
Love at first sight? It’s up to you to make yourself available so that it finds you. Put yourself out there and it will happen at the most unlikely moment. That’s a promise. Do you want a happily-ever-after story? In 2011 you will get down to business and sort out what you really want when it comes to your heart. Fantastic, right? I will go so far as to say that I believe with the planets in place, you might start thinking about having a baby. But be sure to take the time to think about it – and to discuss it with your partner…
CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 20)
Who said love is easy? Certainly not someone like you who doesn’t mess around with stuff like this. It’s crazy how you have the tendency to be so serious about such lighthearted things at the expense of missing out on the finer things in life. Here’s my friendly advice: stop trying to be in control and try to get out of your comfort zone. Be flexible at work. When it comes to friendship, go with the flow. In short, seize opportunities and open yourself up to a refreshing change.
AQUARIUS (January 21 to February 19)
The biggest surprise of this brand new year is…you! Yes, you! Are you trying to resist what your senses are telling you? You might have lost your way a little bit with that one guy, but do not doubt your powers of seduction. You are ready to express your full potential in life and in bed. In short, nothing will seem impossible to you. The one little snag is that this wave of change may confuse you a bit – but not for long.
PISCES (February 20 to March 20)
Trust in fate, love is waiting for you around the corner. And if it takes awhile for it to show itself, without hesitation, flirt! This desire to please will make you want to give up a bad habit that is weighing you down. Chain-smoking, chicken wings with extra sauce, playing on the computer until the wee hours… Sure, no one on this planet can make you change. But if you feel like it, count on some solid support from Venus to inspire discipline and the necessary tenacity it will take to free yourself from your addiction. Be strong!
