Big political shifts accompanying the Uranus-Saturn opposition set the scene for personal changes. Mercury in Aquarius aggravates the existing tension with crazy notions. Talk out those ideas – gently, calmly – and there may be something to them.
ARIES (March 20 – April 19): Nervousness and tripping can make you even more accident prone than you generally are now, and can otherwise aggravate health problems. Focus your energy on some kind of charitable service, and even then, stay calm and take it easy!
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): You’re a little too brilliant now for your own good. There’s a time to upset the apple cart, but this isn’t it. Rather than provoking authority, accept its leadership as a prod to your creative juices. Let the experts guide your genius.
GEMINI (May 21 – June 20): Lots of new ideas are provoking your old notions about where you’re going in life. Acting on them precipitously can be disastrous; instead, write them down and check out what’s behind them and where they might lead.
CANCER (June 21 – July 22): Your sexual adventures, exciting as they may be, could be broadcast too widely for comfort. Loose lips have their place. Do your best to be discreet and to pick your playmates carefully.
LEO (July 23 – August 22): Every relationship has its problems. Little irritations are suddenly ballooning into major frustrations, and all those shortcomings you could live with now seem intolerable. Resolving those problems will take work and extreme honesty and humility on your part.
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): Stay in the here and now, and don’t let others distract you from the task at hand. Trying to do too much, succumbing to any temptation to leap ahead, is likely to blow up in your face.
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): Your enthusiasm for fun and games can get you into some nasty accidents. Be especially careful of injuries to your ankles and legs. Playful inspirations could upset things at work. Think ahead and talk over new ideas before trying to implement them.
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): Efforts to improve your community will probably cause more trouble than they will solve. Your vision has some merit, but your view of the problem is a bit skewed by family experience. Careful thought and discussion should precede any initiative.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): Your “brilliant” ideas have something to them, but need more work than you think. Talk them over with a friend before you bring them to the attention of those who need to hear them.
CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): Everyone is having money troubles these days. Lashing out about your own problems will only aggravate your friends. But if you are willing to subject your weird, cranky inspirations to critical scrutiny, they may lead to something really helpful!
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): Sounding off about sexual frustration could help you solve the problem in the short run. But what’s really bugging you? You need more than just a scratch for that itch. A little self-criticism, leading to self-improvement, can lead to a real answer.
PISCES (February 19 – March 19): Necessary limits and obligations are so annoying! Your craving for adventure and freedom can really screw things up, or may trigger insights about ways to improve your partnership. Careful, cooperative change is essential if you’re committed to making things work.
