LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) With the transiting moon in your sign, you’re feeling daring – tell a broadcaster what you really think of demands for all rights in perpetuity. Also a good time to re-think career direction.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Spend time with people who support your ego and your opinions: avoid pitching forums at all costs.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Your financial outlook is very strong. Profit margin for your recent theatrical documentary will reach one one-thousandth of The Mummy Returns.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Be prepared to forgive and forget. An upcoming program from the broadcaster you pitched six months ago won’t be an exact duplicate of your idea, anyway.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Your patience will be tested. International coproduction partners from the U.S., France, Germany and Japan commit to your project.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) This is an excellent time to approach commissioning editors – but not at a party, in an elevator or within 50 feet of a toilet.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) You’ll be tempted to compromise your integrity for money, but don’t be fooled. Reality TV is a passing fad. Really.
PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20) Step into something you may not fully understand. Pick up the phone and try contacting the BBC.
ARIES (Mar. 21-Apr. 19) Trust your senses: do that experimental film you’ve wanted to do since film school. There’s still time before your company is owned by AOL. Wait a minute… you better check to make sure your company isn’t owned by AOL.
TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20) Expect the unexpected – your ancillary sales will pay for a home on the Riviera. Getting to MIP gets that much easier.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Stop putting it off – contact that old friend at that U.K. prodco. Well, if you can find them…
CANCER (June 21-July 22) Beware of strangers bearing gifts. A libel subpoena is a gift that keeps on giving.
