The sun in Cancer and Venus in Leo both elevate sweetness and generosity, but they are clashing with each other, so the effect can be cloyingly precious and pushy. Some selfishness and objectivity wouldn’t hurt!

ARIES (March 20 – April 19): Usually the pioneer individualist, you now have issues about fitting in. Expressing your social needs may come more easily through some artistic expression – a poem or picture? (Perhaps better to use your creation as a clarifying tool for yourself than as something you’d actually share!)

TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): The comforts of home feel like an alluring distraction from the necessities of work, although your home life should support your career. Reverse the question: How does your job offer strength and support to your home? What do you learn at work that can solve domestic problems?

GEMINI (May 21 – June 20): You may be trying too hard to keep things nice. This is no time to dodge the tough issues. Diplomacy is one thing; sugar-coating hard truths is quite another! Use your gift of gab to help solve trouble, not to hide it.

CANCER (June 21 – July 22): What is important to you sexually? Some inner need hasn’t been met lately, and you want to be touched more than physically. Getting what you need is never easy; some time out to re-evaluate your desires and your approach will at least help.

LEO (July 23 – August 22): If you feel you are giving too much of yourself and are unappreciated, ask the recipient of your generosity what he or she really wants of you. A little discussion about wishes and expectations can save a lot of trouble!

VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): Surprising your co-workers with baked goodies will help morale and win sympathy, but keep things simple. If you try to make your workplace more like home, it will only bring you trouble.

LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): Your diplomatic skills could prove exceptionally handy now. The trick is not to make everything nice – which would only bury the real problem, until it explodes later – but to be creatively engaged with all sides in the challenge to find a real solution.

SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): Your efforts at empathy and charm may be misread as attempts at seduction. You risk being especially provocative at work. Some annoying and cloying bit of “wisdom” from an elder relative will prove helpful there.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): Trying too hard to be nice could dilute the message you really need to get across. Avoid sounding like a bad satire of “politically correct” speech. Keep it simple and to the point. Stand your ground politely but firmly!

CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): You may be giving up too much of yourself sexually. Being kind and generous to your partner is one thing; being a human doormat is quite another. Focus on what matters to you, and talk it over!

AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): Just be yourself. You should be the last person to need that advice, but nowadays you’re too accommodating. Focus on art – especially culinary arts – to express both your individuality and your affection for others.

PISCES (February 19 – March 19): You need some time alone for meditation, exercise, and just charging your batteries. If you really feel the need to be productive, there’s always room for home improvements. But don’t get too-too on the frou-frou! Keep it clean and simple.
