"Be creatively indulgent, Scorpio!"

By Jack Fertig


Venus, Mercury, and Mars, dancing together through Libra, are now aspecting Uranus, Neptune, and Eris. As Venus peels away, and Mercury slows down to turn retrograde, new initiatives in teamwork are likely to go awry. New plans and restructuring will all need correction in the coming weeks.

ARIES (March 20 – April 19): Individual initiative, your usual forte, is now your biggest stumbling block. Take time out to meditate, rely on your intuition, and talk over ideas with friends before moving forward. Keep any competition friendly!

TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): Be careful of sweets and your kidneys, but don't worry too much about your health. Work can be therapeutic, if you don't overdo it. Your boss can be supportive and sympathetic. You may need her or his help in solving problems with colleagues.

GEMINI (May 21 – June 20): Efforts to look brilliant can backfire too easily – if not immediately, then in a few weeks. Consult with your boss and colleagues to make more room for revision, or at least to be able to spread the blame if things go wrong.

CANCER (June 21 – July 22): Getting out of your shell could help your career, but that incentive isn't as appealing as it should be. How about the promise of new adventures and passionate romps? Don't mix work and pleasure, but one can follow close behind the other.

LEO (July 23 – August 22): "Open mouth, insert foot" doesn't scare a fetishist. Your playful improvisations can get you out of trouble almost as easily as you get into it. Arguments and scandal can create more opportunities than problems, so dare anything!

VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): You can handle your own money problems easily. A partner makes things more complicated. It's best for both of you to keep accounts as separate as possible. Financial agreements made now will start unraveling soon.

LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): Your competitive streak is great at work and play, but not in matters of love. Synergy is still more effective than competition. Find ways to bring perceived opponents onto your team.

SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): What you really need is rest and meditation. But long, hot baths with music, soothing salts and candles, and an enjoyable book are your preferred escapes. Be creatively indulgent. Take time to enjoy everything from shopping to toweling off.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): Too many friends making demands on your attention force you to choose where you really belong. This doesn't have to be a permanent, set decision. Know the differences among your family, your tribe, and your friends, and the choices will be easier.

CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): What actions best serve your ambitions? Anything you do will be much noticed and talked about. Pay close attention, and you can guide the conversation to your advantage. Be clear about what you want, and you can achieve a great deal.

AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): Though you embrace new ideas playfully, you'll find yourself being drawn into arguments about them. Don't worry about being right. Say your piece to draw it out. The more you listen, the more you learn.

PISCES (February 19 – March 19): Can there be too much sex? It really is about quality, not quantity. Like chocolate, when it's not terrific, you just want more. You know it's really good when you're so satisfied you don't need more for a while.
