Daring and doing are but two of the qualities that make Aries women such natural action heroines. Saoirse is fearless in her film choices, and has her sign’s razor focus: For her role in the upcoming vampire film Byzantium, she learned to play a Beethoven sonata in just 12 weeks.

ARIES, March 21–April 19

Move over Lady Gaga—a fellow Aries—there’s a new diva in town. Exploit your star quality and achieve your goals. Expect to land an exciting and fulfilling new job sometime soon, as your creativity is off the charts. So is your sex appeal. Note to the other 11 signs: You’ve been warned!

TAURUS, April 20–June 20

It’s the perfect time to take a break. (Feel guilty about slowing down? Don’t: It’s written in the stars.) Use the lull to pamper yourself. By month’s end, a lunar eclipse forces your hand in terms of romance. If you lay your cards on the table, you’ll like the way your guy reacts.

GEMINI, May 21–June 20

Your desk is suddenly home for everyone else’s unwanted projects. Tackle them head-on and show how versatile and capable you are; it will not go unnoticed. Fortunately, friends offer support and diversion in your downtime. As for romance, be careful what you wish for—you just might get it.

CANCER, June 21–July 22

Much as you shun the spotlight, it’s time to shine. Opportunities abound, but only if you put yourself forward. A lunar eclipse sheds light on a previously unseen side of your fellow. Be crystal clear about your feelings before you take the relationship any further.
LEO, July 23–Aug. 22

Don’t be pressured into a role that’s more corporate than creative. Do your own thing—it will pay off. On the home front, the cooperation and support you crave is yours, with one caveat: You must be willing to give more than you get.

VIRGO, Aug. 23–Sept. 22

Your life is an open book right now. Share your deepest feelings with your loved ones and your biggest aspirations with higher-ups. Be open to good news about a tax refund or other windfall. At month’s end, don’t believe everything you hear.

LIBRA, Sept. 23–Oct. 22

This just might be your most romantic month ever. Whatever your status, taking a relationship to the next level will feel so right. In finances, a lunar eclipse on the 25th ups the ante. It’s time to get serious about increasing your net worth.

SCORPIO, Oct. 23–Nov. 21

April will be the best of times…or the worst of times, depending on your approach. You’ll definitely be asked to prove yourself on the job; remain flexible and you’ll ace the test. Off-duty, though, make an effort to share the load.

SAGITTARIUS, Nov. 22–Dec. 21

With your sector of romance, pleasure and risk strongly emphasized this month, make sure to think before you act. (Calculated risks only!) In terms of health and fitness, don’t attempt to turn into Tracy Anderson overnight. Even you have your limits, so take it easy.

CAPRICORN, Dec. 22–Jan. 19

A gang of planets invades your domestic front. Now is the time to attempt a reno or real estate transaction. Meanwhile, it seems like your friends are constantly making demands—consider cleaning house, and cultivating new contacts.

AQUARIUS, Jan. 20–Feb. 18

You’re busier than you ever thought possible, yet it seems like it’s getting you nowhere. With a potent lunar eclipse on the 25th, attention must be paid to the big picture. (Think career change.)

PISCES, Feb. 19–March 20

Avoidance is your middle name, but don’t dawdle. Get cracking, and you could be on the receiving end of a bonus. File those taxes and deal with outstanding financial matters while you’re at it. You can’t escape now, but planning that trip of a lifetime (even if it seems a lifetime away) is a potent motivator.
