The fierce La Chicharona reveals what the stars
have in store for you!

Yo qvBoyz!
Summer is here and it’s time to chill with your buddies and check out the papis—like the one right here. From BBQs to house parties to Sundays at the park, it’s going to be a fun season! So La Chicharona is here to cue you in to what el verano has in store for you! !

Aries ARIES (March 21-April 19)
What are you doing with your money, mijo? You’re so wasteful that you’re driving yourself into bankruptcy faster than American Airlines! You should start saving your money and make smarter purchases. And one more thing, stop eating out! All those dinners at those nice restaurants are killing your budget. Get a cookbook and start making some gourmet meals of your own!
Taurus TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
Wow, all your determination is just about to pay off! Your financial investments are going to ripen and wealth will be coming into your life very soon. So what you gotta do now is prepare yourself for it mentally. Tell yourself that it’s okay to be rich, and don’t fear having lots of money. Just stay grounded and don’t forget where you’ve come from. Other than that, enjoy life in the fast lane!
GEMINI (May 21-June 21)
Baby, I know you don’t want to be known as a “queen,” but sometimes when you butch it up too much it looks kind of fake! There’s nothing wrong with being femme or butch, but don’t try to be something you’re not—just act yourself. If you want to go out and see a not-so-macho film like “Legally Blonde 2,” don’t be embarrassed. Keep in touch with your feminine and masculine sides and forget about what other people think!
CANCER (June 22-July 22)
Another birthday has come upon you and it seems like you’re coming down with a case of the “Mid-midlife Crisis.” You know, the mid-point to being middle aged. There’s no need to fear, papa—everyone will age. So enjoy your life while you’re still young and go out and have some fun. You’re too young to worry about age. I mean, when you turn 80 years old, then you can complain about it, but until then live it up!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 23)
You’re such a germ-ophobic! You’re afraid to go anywhere or touch anything for fear of getting sick. And now with SARS out there, it’s driving you crazy. Don’t stress so much about it, papi. It’s cool to be careful but there’s no reason to shelter yourself from people. Go out—carry a can of Lysol if you have to—and live life. Believe me, if you stress about it, the stress will kill you before the germs will.
VIRGO (Aug. 24-Sept. 23)
You’re Mr. Popular. Yup, all the handsome, cool guys want to hang out with you and be your friend. It must be your animal magnetism. Or maybe it’s just your friendly, positive attitude. Well, good job on maintaining such a great outlook on life. Just keep it up and even better things will come your way—perhaps even that fine papi you’ve had your eye on for the last few months!
LIBRA (Sept. 24-oct. 22)
Work! Work! Work! Is that what life is all about? No! There’s more to life than that! If you really want to learn how to get out of the 9 to 5 cycle, then let me give you a big tip. Check out a game called “Cashflow 101” by Robert Kiyosaki. Even though it’s just a game, it will teach you a lot about investing and getting out of the day-to-day rat race. I’m telling you, get it, play it, and you’ll be on your way to financial freedom.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Don’t you wish there was some sort of TiVo for your life where you could filter out trivial things? It seems like you spend too much time doing things that don’t really get you ahead of schedule. Well, one thing you can do is take steps to organize your life. Start using a day planner and use it to make “To Do” lists. Then, make sure you complete those tasks daily. If you can stay on top of things, life will run much, much smoother for you.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Hey, stop checking out the guys everywhere! Why? Because you already have a good man at home! Well, chulo, if you can’t control yourself, then you need to ask yourself why you are in a relationship in the first place! Dawg, you owe it to yourself to be a man of dignity, a man who can respect everyone, and a man who can be faithful. That’s the kind of guy I want to see.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Look out! I see a marriage coming your way! Who would have thought that the playa in you would ever settle down? Now the only question is who is the lucky man you’re going to spend the rest of your life with? It’s actually going to be someone you never imagined you’d be with. But what’s going to be so special about it is that you’ll be both friends and lovers. Let me be the first to congratulate you and your man in your new life!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
You are a truly gifted individual. You have many talents hidden inside you that you might not even know you had. It’s time to discover those talents. Pursue some new hobbies—whether it’s singing, dancing, writing, or drawing. There’s an artist in you that is waiting to be unleashed. Who knows? It may even lead you to an exciting new career!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
Good job, papi! You’ve been going to the gym regularly for months now, and it’s really starting to show! Not to mention you’ve been eating so healthy! Well, I just wanted to say that it’s okay to splurge once in a while! So if, once a week or so, you want a candy bar or some Thrifty’s Cookies and Cream ice cream, then go for it! One tiny step of enjoyment won’t hinder the huge progress that you’re making with your body. Bon appétit
