Q Scopes: It's good to talk, Aquarius!
By Jack Fertig
Originally printed 7/8/2010 (Issue 1827 - Between The Lines News)
With outer planets hanging out near the cusps, Mercury entering Leo and Venus into Virgo kick off a lot of issues. Being cute, outspoken and constructively critical (let's hope!) will have broad ramifications. Modesty, compassion and forethought are always good to check before speaking.
ARIES (March 20 - April 19): Playful banter can help stimulate a better work environment, but not "too" playful lest your intentions are misunderstood. Spontaneous provocation has its place, but strategic consulting with colleagues will probably prove more effective.
TAURUS (April 20 - May 20): Your new playful streak could come off as critical and bitchy. Sometimes a Bette Davis impression just can't make it right. One should never let go of the Golden Rule - but'cha are, Blanche! Well, you easily could. Be extra mindful and considerate!
GEMINI (May 21- June 20): You have a lot to say and it feels very important to you. Your family and boss may disagree. Look for a new perspective and tweak your message a bit. Listen to friends with radical, challenging suggestions.
CANCER (June 21- July 22): Even if changing jobs seems risky these days, consider taking the chance. Staying where you are could be worse. Any current dissatisfaction with your job invites self-sabotage. Seek advice from a friend experienced in the work you want to do.
LEO (July 23 - August 22): However you identify with your words, some separation is good. Your partner can help open you up to powerful new ideas. Look past long-held notions to your most basic values; it's better to take in those fresh notions.
VIRGO (August 23 - September 22): Step out of the social whirl for a bit. Focus on taking care of yourself inside and out. A new look should honor your age, not hide it. Knowing your limits can help you zero in on your strengths.
LIBRA (September 23 - October 22): Conflicted about social opportunities? You may be better off in quiet retreat with fewer, better friends. Favor the more productive and creative ones. Save time and energy for your partner, even if you don't have one - yet.
SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21): Balancing friendly conversations with the boss, and maintaining friendships with colleagues, and could get you a huge promotion. Never forget where you came from and that going up the ladder helps you to pull others up after.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 20): Showing off newfound wisdom could quickly force you to admit to the limits of your recent learning. Instead, ask thoughtful questions of a real expert. Don't be shy! An outre creative approach could spark new directions and insights for both of you.
CAPRICORN (December 21 - January 19): Sex seems to be shifting from practice to theory. That's OK, especially if you consider deeply what it's all about. Old messages on the topic take sudden relevance. Tapes to erase? Valuable but forgotten lessons? You could be surprised.
AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18): Your sex life should be picking up pretty well. What does your partner say about that? A discussion on the topic is at least in order. People do change and grow. Even if everything is hunky-dory, it's good to talk.
PISCES (February 19 - March 19): Being playful is important, but for now focus more on the actual work and responsibility of your relationship, real or hypothetical. When you feel uncertain and use your partner for grounding that may be unfair to him or her.Jack Fertig, a professional astrologer since 1977, is available for personal and business consultations in person in San Francisco, or online everywhere.
