Harmony between Jupiter in Capricorn and Mars in Virgo helps productivity in any sort of work, but especially tasks requiring attention to detail or critical analysis. Venus is making harder aspects, wanting to play, dance, and dazzle. If you can harness that flashy “oomph” to the harder working planets, you can accomplish a lot!
ARIES (March 20 – April 19): The urge to strut your stuff can be an awkward distraction. Reroute that bit of exhibitionism into your work. You can get a lot accomplished, win positive notice, and open opportunities. Just let your work speak for itself!
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): Whatever hobbies, sports, or creative outlet you have will benefit hugely from some fresh input and attention on technique. Unless it’s a home-based activity, the nest may be a cozy distraction from accomplishment. Think instead of awards you’d like to be able to display.
GEMINI (May 21 – June 20): Is your sex life suffering from bad feng shui? House cleaning, maybe even some re-decorating, could make both your boudoir and your attitude more inviting. Smart-ass remarks from a close friend offer a clue to what you need to do.
CANCER (June 21 – July 22): If you must have some flashy little bauble to show off, at least check your budget before giving in to expensive impulse. A serious discussion with your partner or a close friend will be good for your discipline and your relationship.
LEO (July 23 – August 22): You’re looking especially fabulous these days, but duty calls – and not to the runway you’d rather be on. Work on your attitude as well as the labors at hand. If you focus that dazzle into professional development, you’ll be a star!
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): Your playful impulses may seem a bit severe and critical to folks who don’t quite get you. Brush up your creative skills in private, or donate your services to a good cause.
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): If you’re torn between needing some downtime at home and wanting to please your friends, you should set times for both. Finding the balance could be tricky, but adequate solitude is necessary for your spirit to sparkle in public.
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): You have great ability to organize friends constructively. Rely on charm, and don’t push too hard. Assuming authority will backfire, but inviting people to participate will push you to the top.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): Being resourceful and good with money can get you terrific notice at work. Play up your strengths and values. The temptation to adventure could get the better of you, but that yen could be channeled into great work. Remember what’s important!
CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): You’re looking very hot now, but a bit severe and hard to approach. Take the first move, and be willing to try something new. If at first you don’t succeed, consider improvements in your style and try again!
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): Venus and Mars are eager to get you some hot action, but the route to fulfillment is through some kind of charitable service. No, not pity dates! Doing good will help you meet the right people or improve your partner’s amenability.
PISCES (February 19 – March 19): Your inclination is to socialize, and you could easily be the belle or beau of the ball. More to your advantage, you could harness those social skills to work better with your colleagues and improve productivity or other problems at work.
