Mars is happy in Capricorn, where he’s easily put to constructive work. He’s now semi-sextile to Pluto, which offers an energy boost – although that energy can get a bit obsessive. Pace yourself! Then Mars butts up against Uranus, setting off accidents and eruptions of bad judgment. Slow and easy does it!

ARIES (March 20 – April 19): Getting all charged up at work seems like a good idea, and, indeed, you can get a lot done. But be very careful not to overlook small details that can trip you up. Worrying too much will make it worse. Just be sensible and attentive.

TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): How much do you really need to be right? Assert your needs and desires in bed to release that energy, and stay out of silly arguments. Friends will prove irritating in any event, but it seems less important if your libido is satiated.

GEMINI (May 21 – June 20): Get sexually creative with your partner. You need novelty, release, and connection. Lacking that, you could act out at work in ways that could sabotage your career. Look for new ways to cooperate with the boss, especially when she’s driving you crazy.

CANCER (June 21 – July 22): Working on building a relationship can mean taking the backseat and letting your partner lead, even while you put in most of the effort. When your ideals come under challenge, make sure to listen and learn before responding.

LEO (July 23 – August 22): Hard work is good for you, especially when it challenges your creativity. You’re sure to rise to the occasion. Don’t let your head swell, though. A major upset can be very dangerous. Stay focused and clear-headed!

VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): Indulging your hobbies at home can cause friction with your partner or roommates. Discuss rules about space, noise, etc., and reach a clear agreement. Someone will transgress the limits anyway. Be careful that it isn’t you.

LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): Resolving family troubles, or just catching up on the news, can help motivate you to check up on your health or dig in at work. Handling rude surprises on either front now can save you from worse grief later.

SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): Keep arguments over money to yourself; clean up your bookkeeping and balance your accounts. Jumping into arguments for the fun of it is only fair if your opponent also sees it as a game.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): You have a killer eye for bargains, especially for clothes and accessories. But be careful – that may quickly turn into a disastrous impulse to buy overpriced, inappropriate housewares and furniture.

CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): Crankiness is a sign that you need some time alone to meditate and relax. Your mind and tongue are both about to become lethally sharp. Relax and feel good about people so the “witty” urge doesn’t get too savage.

AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): You’re about to have a small crisis in faith and values. Shore up your psychic well-being by doing some sort of community service – something you can throw your back into as well as your heart and soul.

PISCES (February 19 – March 19): Build political connections and good will at work while you can. Trouble and misunderstanding will come to a head soon. This could provide a good clearing of the air, so look for opportunities in the wreckage.
