Q Scopes: Say what's on your mind, Leo!

Entering Cancer, the Sun triggers a square between Jupiter in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn, bringing clear visions of danger that may also push too quickly to protective responses. Look for common ground; keep negotiations calm and productive. Avoiding major conflict or persevering through one requires courage and sacrifice.
ARIES (March 20 - April 19): Competing demands of work and home are evidence that others expect great things of you. You may need to assert that home should be a base, and your family the people you can count on so you can succeed in the outer world.
TAURUS (April 20 - May 20): You're more comfortable with immediate practical details, but have to engage huge over-arching ideas. You have more inner strength than you realize. Step back, meditate, and the big picture will become clearer.
GEMINI (May 21- June 20): Sex and money issues now seem to be acutely critical. Take a long view. Think about where you want to be financially and/or erotically in 12 years. What would it take to get there? Talking with friends can help.
CANCER (June 21- July 22): What disturbs you most about your partner could be exactly what's needed for him or her to help you to succeed. Get past your own reactions to whatever "flaw" or blessing that may be, and learn how to work with it.
LEO (July 23 - August 22): Health problems, hopefully minor, are best addressed by radically new approaches. Chiropractic and high colonics are indicated for the body, meditation and rebirthing for the soul. Say what's on your mind, but be ready to have your mind changed.
VIRGO (August 23 - September 22): You may shock your friends with your sudden urge to challenge them with deep and frightening ideas or risky games (It's not a great time to take up skydiving or rugby!). Spontaneous seductions, however, can work out brilliantly.
LIBRA (September 23 - October 22): The hardest learned lessons from early childhood are resonating at work. You may feel pressured or bullied. Resist temptation to vent at your partner, but do have a frank discussion. That's where you'll get your best ideas.
SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21): Calm down. Think ahead. Identifying too much with grand ideas can blind you to important basic details. Trying to pull all that together can distract you, causing accidents. Vigorous exercise can burn off the stress if you don't overdo it.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 20): Sex can be a delicious diversion from the stress of political and economic crises. Better yet, sublimate that sexual energy or take inspiration from it and channel some of that libido into more creative impulses.
CAPRICORN (December 21 - January 19): Times are tough; you're feeling it hard. Still, share your feelings with someone you do have a deep connection with and get some perspective. Hard work or sports can cultivate a strong sense of home and community.
AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18): All your secrets and worries can start pouring out of you before you realize it. This can be a great time to work on deep personal problems, but be very careful to make sure you can trust your confidante.
PISCES (February 19 - March 19): Avoid impulsive spending and gambling. Carefully calculated creative efforts can prove lucrative. You can get ahead doing something creative and fun, but the keys to fiscal sanity are still hard work and discipline.Jack Fertig, a professional astrologer since 1977, is available for personal and business consultations in person in San Francisco, or online everywhere.
