IN Venus and Jupiter are in a tug of war between flirtiness and cravings for deep commitment. The Sun in Cancer harmonizes to both, so trust your sense of self and your gut to smooth out the rough edges.
ARIES (March 20 – April 19): You’re feeling flirtatious, but be careful! Your charm may be coming off more seductively than you intend. If you invite anyone home for dinner, be very clear up front about whether dessert will be in the bedroom – or not!
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): Discuss money issues with your partner. You are more flexible than usual now, and your partner, picking up on that, will also be especially amenable. You could both come out way ahead, with your relationship much more solid.
GEMINI (May 21 – June 20): You should be able to get a raise due to the quality of your work, but appearance will count, too. Doll yourself up a bit, within the standards of professional dress, of course!
CANCER (June 21 – July 22): A birthday retreat is better than a party, especially if you hide out with someone who knows just how to blow your candles. Taking time to nurture your inner beauty will illuminate the face you show to the world.
LEO (July 23 – August 22): Get into local community work; you’ll make friends and influence people beyond Dale Carnegie’s wildest dreams. Some of those new connections will also help other dreams come true, even if those dreams need a little tweaking.
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): Your mind is now especially sharp at spotting opportunity, but be flexible. Friends in high places are more than ready to be accommodating. Think carefully about what you want, and speak up discreetly, but definitively!
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): A little self-promotion will help you toward wealth and fame. This is no time to be shy. Play up your resourcefulness, and your natural charm and strategic skills will kick in to do the rest.
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): Your sexiness now lives up to your reputation, and then some. If you really want to play it up, a low neckline will help. You could also wear anything that suggests your ethnic roots or the furthest range of your travels.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): Abduct the one you love – or the one you desire – for a secret getaway. A passionate escape is just the thing to kick start a relationship, whether it’s just beginning or could use some spice for old routines.
CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): It may take some effort, but Caps can dazzle like nobody’s business when they want to. (Just look at Marlene Dietrich!) Turn it on now at work, and you’ll find your colleagues lining up to help you get ahead!
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): When you enjoy your work, it helps to boost your co-workers’ morale as well. Your upbeat attitude is not only infectious; it can get you favorable notice and even a promotion. Your infallible secret weapon, if necessary, is home-baked treats to share.
PISCES (February 19 – March 19): One little fish wants to see the world; the other wants to stay in your tank. A creative bit of decorating can bring the world home. Pull out souvenirs from voyages real or imagined. Foreigners are finding you especially sexy. Keep your ears open for interesting accents!
