“Cool your jets, Leo!”

Q Scopes

Mars in Leo elicits daring and flash. Alas, in conflict with Uranus and Pisces, that’s sure to lead to all sorts of disasters, from fashion “faux pas” to physical mutilation. Imaginations are now rich with all kinds of artistic and spiritual inspiration, much of which is worth exploring, and understanding. The time for actual action, however, will come later!

ARIES (March 20 – April 19): Mad impulses may show creative brilliance, but they’re very likely to go awry. In artistic creativity, at least nobody is likely to get hurt. Still, it could happen. In contact sports and kinky explorations, be especially careful!

TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): Your innovative vision for the community may have something to it, but don’t act too quickly. More thought is needed. Much more! This is also not a good time to make changes around the house, especially if electricity is involved!

GEMINI (May 21 – June 20): Do try to keep your brain ahead of your mouth. It’s not easy now, especially in dealing with authority figures. Nobody’s going to hear you quite the way you intended, and the powerful are especially likely to take offense. Be ready to apologize, even if you’re not sure what for.

CANCER (June 21 – July 22): Your budget is already in trouble; being dazzled by exotic shiny objects doesn’t help. Signing up for courses or travel could also be an impulsive, expensive mistake. Arguments that sound important are only about ego. Avoid them!

LEO (July 23 – August 22): You are now especially bold, assertive, and seductive. Imagine all the trouble that can get you into! It’s sure to be about twice as much as usual. Cool your jets, and focus your attention on the one person you really adore.

VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): Your suspicion of your friends is probably exaggerated, but not entirely unfounded. A discreet chat with someone you know you can trust can help sort things out. Meditation can also help you see what anxieties are feeding your doubts.

LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): Your efforts to improve the workspace are more visionary than practical, and your notions of teamwork may need more humility. Looking ahead is good, but stay focused on the immediate task at hand.

SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): You may be feeling brilliantly creative and at the top of your game, but that could easily be hubris. Make sure your actions and ideas are well grounded, and double-check everything!

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): You need to be heard. You can sing out, Louise, but keep it to artistic efforts, and allow yourself to be weird and wacky. Avoid debates and politics, except in the form of parody.

CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): Baby, you are sizzling hot! Trouble is, it shows even when you don’t want it to, and messages get too easily mixed. The best way to handle unwanted attention is with firm limits and good humor.

AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): Whether frustrated by your relationship or your lack of one, sudden decisions now are probably based on exaggerated hopes or disappointments. Major changes are worth considering slowly in calmer times.

PISCES (February 19 – March 19): Pushing too hard at work or at working-out can cause a lot of trouble. Focus, and be clear about achieving what you want, knowing that you can get there with slow, careful effort. Meditate on the inner life of the tortoise as he prepared to beat the hare.
