Q Scopes

Venus is in Sagittarius, wanting to play, but she’s triggering an opposition between Saturn and Uranus. Harness that wild, fun energy to balance responsibility and inspiration.

ARIES (March 20 – April 19): Let your eye and ear wander to new artistic perspectives. Challenge yourself to appreciate things you’d normally avoid. The stimulation will help you to understand your place in the world better, to mend old friendships and make new ones.

TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): Too much self-criticism is blocking the creative edge you need to realize your goals. Sexual adventure – yes, something entirely new! – will help you over that hump. The stars suggest exploring domination fantasies. If you have a better idea, follow your own dreams.

GEMINI (May 21 – June 20): Your political skills and foresight are especially sharp now. Look at any conflict, not as a logical argument, but as a dramatic scene to be resolved. The best answers will come way out of left field.

CANCER (June 21 – July 22): New approaches at work are worth trying, if only experimentally. Whether they work or not, your adaptability and thoughtful acceptance of criticism is what really counts. Bite your tongue and challenge your brain. Ambitious rivals may prove more helpful than well-meaning friends.

LEO (July 23 – August 22): Your naturally playful eroticism can get a little out of hand, leading to rude surprises. Have a very deep heart-to-heart with your partner about sex, but also about whatever philosophical or religious differences you may have.

VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): Take your partner or roommate window-shopping for some exotic house decor. No need to buy; just browsing will help clarify domestic problems. A new approach to housework is also helpful, and remaining problems might be best resolved in the bedroom.

LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): Life is stressful lately. Find a good friend and let it all out, even if it seems like a long, rambling, nonsensical torrent. That’s what good friends are for. Playful competition in some intellectually stimulating game also offers a sense of balance.

SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): Any efforts to deal with finances now can cause more frustration than they would alleviate. Find cheap ways to enjoy the company of your friends. Spiritual lessons from childhood will help you deal with competition at work.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): Being playful, charming, outspoken, and fun certainly has its place, but it also makes you the target of annoyed persons at home and at work. That offers a creative challenge to focus and grow; but find a place to have your fun, too!

CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): Don’t get caught up in debates. Just listen to new ideas and arguments against them. If they contradict deeply held beliefs, accept the challenge quietly, and see where you have room to grow. Allow yourself an impulse buy for your home.

AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): A friend who wants “benefits” risks spoiling a good thing. Keep it platonic. Discuss the possibilities so your pal can realize what a disaster it would be in the long run. In the end, it should be good for a laugh.

PISCES (February 19 – March 19): Too much fun at work can make your partner feel neglected. What really counts in your career? What satisfactions does it offer that you don’t find in love? Re-evaluate your priorities, and be frank with your baby about them.
