Leo (July 23-August 22)
Too much of something is, uh, too much of something. Sure, you can treat yourself, but within reason. Indulge…to a point. Of course your car is your baby. There’s no denying that. You still have to be careful, though. Moderation is a good thing. Perhaps you don’t have to spring for a new paint job AND shiny rims AND a sick sound system all in the same month. Just a thought.
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
Fill up on the coffee. You have a long drive ahead of you and not much physical (or emotional energy to spare.) This week, caffeine is your best friend, so treat her with the love and respect she deserves. Now is as good a time as any to get a loyalty rewards card at your favorite convenience store. You’ll be racking up those points and enjoying your heavily discounted—if not free!!—coffee in no time.
Libra (September 23-October 22)
You need more intimacy in your life. One way to get people to open up is to strike up a conversation about their car. It’s an easy entry point that’s not terribly personal, at least at first. But what people drive can reveal so much about them, from their personality to their values. Get ready to listen and when it’s your turn, open up, too. Everybody has at least one interesting car story. What’s yours?
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
You have a big decision to make this week, so make it. You’ve delayed it long enough. Lunge for the new tires. Call the insurance company. Buy that new car. Whatever it is, do it. You can waste your life wishing and pining and going around in circles or you can be a person who takes action. The only time it’s acceptable to go around and around in circles is if you’re really good at wheelies and the cops aren’t watching, but, seriously, that’s a total exception.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
There’s no reason to fixate on your car’s flaws. The reality is that no car is perfect, but your car may be perfect for you. (Yeah, cars are sort of like romantic partners in that sense.) If you’re truly unhappy with your car, it may be time for a “divorce.” Sell it or trade it in. Your current car may not be the perfect one for you, but your next one could be.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
You’re a leader. Now act like it. Don’t feel pressured to keep up with the Joneses. What do they know, anyway? Like the bumper stickers they have? Don’t copy them! Think for yourself and drive the sweet ride that’s right for you, with your character and lifestyle dictating your choices. It’s waaay too Stepford Wives to drive through a neighborhood and see that every household owns the same car. Stand out, don’t blend in.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18)
Road rage isn’t good, but being assertive is important. Don’t give other drivers the impression that they can push you around. Being nice doesn’t have to mean being a pushover. At some point, other people have to give you a break. The problem is, not everybody thinks that way. Turn on your signal and squeeze into that other lane before you spend the next half hour trying to make a legal U-turn.
Pisces (February 19-March 20)
You’re about to achieve something great. Congratulations on your impending accomplishment! But put the party favors away before you hit the road. Driving requires your full attention. No matter what success has come your way, drinking and driving is never okay. Party at home so you don’t have to worry about a designated driver or get a ride lined up well in advance. You can have a lot of fun and still be safe.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
You know how they say you should trust your gut? Well, “they” are right. You have intuition for a reason. Trusting your gut while you’re driving is crucial. It’s not a purely intellectual thing. After all, there are plenty of book smart people who fail their driving test. You need to learn to rely on instruct and react quickly. You never know what will jump into the road or when another car will swerve in your direction.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Just because you think you’re an expert driver doesn’t mean you are. Who are you to give advice about what to do on the road? Nobody likes a backseat driver. Unless you’re a certified driving instructor, you shouldn’t be telling anyone what to do. It’s time to be humble and admit that you’re an imperfect driver like everyone else on the road. You have room for improvement, too. This week, reflect on exactly you need to change in order to excel on the road.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Wow! This seems to be the week of jumping to conclusions for you! But are you sure you know what’s going on with your car? Maybe you should rely on a professional instead of assuming you know what’s up. Or even let some things slide. Like, do you actually know who keyed your car or are you simply looking for another excuse to hate someone? Don’t choose a scapegoat because it’s the easy thing to do.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
This looks like a hot week for you. Maybe you’ll see a hottie in the lane next to you while you’re stopped at a light and actually take a chance to flirt and ask for a date. If you’re already taken, well, maybe you’ll use this week to get a little steamy in the backseat. Whether you’ve got a ring on your finger or not, you just might get lucky enough to find a nice note on your windshield. Wouldn’t that set your heart aflutter?
