Weekly Movie Horoscope

I'm here once again to read the stars and give you guidance. Though this week should technically be all about ME (it being my birthday week) I'm such a giver that this horoscope is still all for you. I'm not even going to work in an obnoxious theme about which gift you should buy me to prove that you really love me. Instead, since the weather is suddenly very warm, we're using movie stars, beaches, pools, and sunny film reminders for each sign.

Bask in it!

Weekly Movie Horoscope
May 31st to June 6th Nathaniel's Birthday Summer Begins Edition

Aries (3.21-4.19)
You may be feeling as bold and impulsive as DeDe poolside in The Opposite of Sex. But before you charge into something messy like seducing your brothers boyfriend, think it over: you want to be clear about your feelings. These things have ripples, you know. Otherwise you're at the top of your game. Even when you're reckless, you're charming this week.

Taurus (4.20-5.20)
With Venus taking up residence in your sun sign for a good stretch, it's a great time to treat yourself well. Even if you haven't a penny to your name currently, feel as entitled and gorgeous and worldly as Gwyneth Paltrow and Jude Law in The Talented Mr Ripley. Stay positive and avoid pledging your well-known loyalties too quickly and you'll entirely avoid their unhappy ending.

Gemini (5.21-6.20)
With Venus in your chart you may find yourself extra spacey and day-dreaming this week. You might discover yet another personality in yourself (I know!) like 'chicklet' did in Psycho Beach Party. Pay attention to these dreams but don't sleep in. Amazing personal changes are coming and you need to stay alert, wide-eyed, and open to them.

Cancer (6.21-7.22)
To your left is one of the most popular film stills from Liz Taylor's entire career. It's from Suddenly Last Summer but that photo-op is misleading. Liz isn't enjoying her life at the beach much in that gothic, twisted drama. Your challenge: Don't punish yourself or be controlled by someone else this week. That way lies madness. Focus on leisure and socializing, only the rewarding kind.

Leo (7.23-8.22)
"Whoa!" All I can see when I look at you is Keanu "Johnny Utah" Reeves in Point Break. Recognition is coming your way. Maybe you'll solve a complicated case? Both Venus and Mars are on your side so you'll be pumping with adrenaline and ready for extreme leaps and roars. Try to see past the surface with people. They may be hiding something. Added bonus this week: You look sensational when wet.

Virgo (8.23-9.22)
You've reached Heaven's Mouth. Make like Ana, Tenoch, and Julio in Y Tu Mama Tambien and soak it all in (even if that feels a bit risque). Passionate surprises in your lovelife await. Be open-minded and willing to negotiate and opportunities for fun in the sun (figuratively or literally who cares) will be abundant.

Libra (9.23-10.22)
This is a strong week for you with finances. Money matters and you need to make smart decisions. But that's boring. So let's talk about your love life. The energy is great for a passionate embrace on the beach like Deborah Kerr & Burt Lancaster in From Here to Eternity. Don't worry about the messiness of it all: sand in your swimsuit is a small price to pay for pleasure.

Scorpio (10.23-11.21)
Mars is approaching your solar chart (first time in two years) so turn on the charm and you'll see plenty of action. Don't make a big deal out of obstacles. Think Joe/Josephine/Junior in Some Like It Hot. You're even sneakier and more willful than Tony Curtis so you'll land your own Marilyn, whoever that may be. If you have to dress in drag or pretend you're a millionaire to do so, so what?

Sagittarius (11.22-12.21)
Work, work, work! Fun, Fun, Fun! Find energy for both and you'll bloom. Cameron Diaz does in Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle. She has to sell some pretty clunky double entendres while dripping wet with surfboard in hand, but sell them she does. With a huge grin. It's a job but she's having a ball doing it. It's also a great week for travel so suit up or plan ahead.

Capricorn (12.22-1.19)
Your can-do efforts will be nigh unstoppable this week. You could even survive in your own Blue Lagoon. And you'd be a lot more smarter and more resourceful about it than Christopher Atkins and Brooke Shields I'll tell you that. It's a perfect week for you to tie up loose ends --swimming naked can wait.

Aquarius (1.20-2.18)
Patience is a virtue Aquarian and so is balance. It can be tricky to balance the needs of a big career and a lifelong friend in need but if Bette Midler can do it in Beaches for collagen-lipped Barbara Hershey you can make time for both, too. Stay positive and generous and this summer will glow in your memory for a long time to come. That's the story of. That's the glory of love.

Pisces (2.19-3.20)
With the temperatures rising, careful not to overexert yourself. Anything could happen so stay hydrated, watery one. Rather than point to something similar to you I'll point to a talisman of warning. Should you come across a wet, horny, luscious barely-clad thing like Gael Garcia Bernal in Bad Education be on your guard and trust your intuition. People are not always what they seem.

As always, if you have a movie-loving friend in need of guidance, let them know about these weekly horoscopes. Share the film experience.
