Q Scopes

Chiron and the North Lunar Node both point to working through an old wound to open your own abilities to heal others. The Sun is in harsh aspect, creating emotional resistance. Figure out what that’s about, and get your ego out of the way. It’s a big challenge, but with an enormous pay-off.

ARIES (March 20 – April 19): Dissatisfied with home and community? Focus on what you want them to be and how to get there. You will find resistance to your ideas, so invite others to share their perspectives. Be open to new ideas that are in synergy with your own.

TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): Expressing your feelings too forthrightly can bother folks in charge, causing setbacks at work. Have a trustworthy, sympathetic friend you can vent with. That pal could even offer advice to help you get ahead.

GEMINI (May 21 – June 20): The temptation to spend impulsively is key to your spiritual questions. Try resisting the impulse to see what frustration comes up. What you’re reaching for may offer clues to what you want at a deeper level.

CANCER (June 21 – July 22): Sex is so tied to marketing in our culture that everyone should ask him- or herself: How much of your sexual persona is really you, and how much is an effort to conform to an image? Be very clear about your authentic needs and desires.

LEO (July 23 – August 22): Pull back from society and attention the way you’d pull an arrow back in a bow. Withdrawal should build tension, helping you to focus on what you really need to aim for in your relationships.

VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): Being clear in your ideals is a good beginning, but it’s only that. More important in the long run is the work it will take to bring those ideals closer to reality. The task at hand may seem counterintuitive. Think it through first, but act!

LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): You may be taking yourself and your career just a little too seriously. A little fun and some creative effort will offer a much-needed spark of brilliance. Don’t just wait for inspiration – create your own!

SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): You may prefer to be anywhere else but home, but your attention is required there. Wherever you’d rather be may offer clues to improving the domestic or community issues that you are avoiding.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): Your sex appeal usually gets a boost this time of year, but the question for you now is, what does sex communicate? Opening up to your partner, being attentive verbally and otherwise, are challenges worth taking on.

CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): Is partnership an end in itself, or should your relationship serve other goals or values? Is your search for a relationship distracting you from more important goals? Take time to sort out these issues twice – once by yourself, and once with your partner or a good friend.

AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): It can be easy to lose yourself in your work. That may be OK – if you can find yourself there as well. If your work doesn’t nurture you, consider what sort of work would, and how to get that job.

PISCES (February 19 – March 19): Dreams should inform creative efforts, but yours seem to be at odds. Relax, trust in a “higher power,” God, or simple inspiration, and let go of the results you had planned. You could come up with something much better!
