Sun in Pisces opposing Saturn in Virgo pushes us to look critically at spiritual issues. The perfect answers you want aren’t available, but better perspectives and understanding are. Enlightenment is a process, not a fixed goal.
ARIES (March 20 – April 19): You’re not usually a worrier, but stress can exaggerate health problems. Still, they’re real problems; a check-up now can save plenty of grief later. Focus on the task at hand, put one foot in front of the other, breathe, and relax!
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): Creative constipation feels dire, but it’s simply solved. Not easily, but simply. Let your mind wander through your hopes and aspirations, then focus on the most realistic among them. The rest is just application and hard work, but potentially fun and rewarding.
GEMINI (May 21 – June 20): When you don’t know where you’re going, focus on where you’ve been. Knowing your foundation in experience and background can help you understand what you can accomplish. Don’t let criticism throw you, but consider the constructive parts of it.
CANCER (June 21- July 22): Your attempts at wit can sound especially bitchy. When in doubt, discuss politicians and celebrities. Being critical is great for analyzing or reviewing your own work. Offering critiques to your friends may not be so well appreciated.
LEO (July 23 – August 22): Life has been tough lately, and sex makes a great “divertissement,” but you need something deeper than funsies. That’s not always easy to get, but clear awareness of your real needs is at least less of a challenge.
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): You’re wondering lately what’s wrong with you. Your partner and close friends seem awfully eager to let you know. Are they too critical, or are you hypersensitive? Probably some of both. Correcting faults is your forte. Find satisfaction in self-improvement.
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): Your problems may be real or inflated by imagination, but worrying only makes them worse. Mediation – or even the meditative quiet of gardening, exercise, etc. – will help bring answers. If there are no answers, helping the less fortunate alleviates worry.
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): You can be a lot of fun if you don’t worry about the future and can simply enjoy the present. OK, if you must worry about the future, focus your energies on creative projects that might help to improve it!
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): At the top of a career peak, try to remember what spiritual values from your family background helped you get where you are now. Those same ideals will help you to consolidate your recent gains.
CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): Running off at the mouth, you could seem rather dogmatic. Try to listen and challenge your brain to accept new ideas and perspectives. Keep your inner critic inside where it’s most effective, but do ask clarifying questions.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): You may not feel erotic enough, but spending money won’t help! Meditate instead on what you really value about your sexuality, and how to put that into practice. If self-criticism doesn’t lead to self-improvement, give yourself a break.
PISCES (February 19 – March 19): You want more from your relationships than is humanly possible. Giving more of yourself is not the answer. Focus on a better understanding of others’ limits and needs, and look at your own in a more pragmatic light.
