The Sun conjoins Jupiter in Taurus offering a bright spot in the economy, both global and your own. Venus is in close aspect boosting that optimism, but Eris is also in aspect so real gains require hard work.
ARIES (March 20 - April 19): Your efforts at solving problems at work will be mired in obstruction for a while yet. Work off the frustration with moderate exercise. Remember you're the one being edgy and impatient; be nice to colleagues! The good news: Money is coming your way!
TAURUS (April 20 - May 20): Be very careful of sports injuries! Otherwise, be daring. Say what's on your mind. Personally and professionally you're looking fabulous. Hard work is sure to be rewarded. You could even luck out on the lotto on the 13th.
GEMINI (May 21- June 20): The less you say, the more people will listen. Busy as your brain is, the stars promise a closed trap and an open mind will bring you lots of new information, insight and respect from others.
CANCER (June 21- July 22): Your energy and ambition are cranking up, maybe a little too hard. Keep your eyes open for opportunities, but look ahead and exercise judgment. Gossip and friendly chatter are tempting distractions. Keep your mind focused on the prize.
LEO (July 23 - August 22): All eyes and ears are focused on you. Make the most of this opportunity. How you turn a sudden (financial?) shock into an opportunity could impress everyone around. Think quickly, show spontaneous foresight, and recruit help as you need it.
VIRGO (August 23 - September 22): You're the queen of exacting details, but let that go and look at the larger picture. You'll get a clearer overview of where and how those details work best. Explore new ideas, tastes and feelings. Celebrating the sensual will prove practical.
LIBRA (September 23 - October 22): Your ruler Venus usually confers graceful manners. Now she's pushing you to get slutty. You'll have time to explore your sensual, adventurous side. Consider ground rules, good sense and protection. If partnered, talk with your mate about how to focus that passion.
SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21): Brutal honesty with your friends will not only clear away lugs you're better off without, but it can also alienate folks you should value personally or professionally. If you want brutal honesty, start on yourself and your current direction in life.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 20): Your own charms and good work will get you ahead at work, but your partner could prove the secret weapon in helping you cement connections that will help promote you. Your competitive streak is coming out. Keep it light and playful.
CAPRICORN (December 21 - January 19): A critique of your work may feel devastating. Set your feelings aside and learn what you can from that. There's always room for improvement and the lessons here can be just what you need to push forward.
AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18): Family arguments can reveal a lot and might even prove to be blessings in disguise. Sexual adventures - or otherwise acting like a teenage boy - can go wrong. Be very careful. Remember you have nothing to prove!
PISCES (February 19 - March 19): Open communications with those close to you can prove very lucrative, or at least help you focus on what really matters. Keep your ears open and let family and friends know what you want.Jack Fertig, a professional astrologer since 1977, is available for personal and business consultations in person in San Francisco, or online everywhere.
