With Venus going into Aries and Mars going into Aquarius, latch on to bold, creative impulses. Take the flirtatious chances that you normally wouldn’t dare to. Think of new approaches to artistic projects you’ve been considering, and get started!
ARIES (March 20 – April 19): Trust those inspirational sparks that seem to come out of nowhere, even though they do need the guidance of a practiced expert – and some improvements you won’t think of – to help you bring them to successful fruition.
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): Well-meaning friends offering “helpful suggestions” can unwittingly hit a nerve. Try to take it all in good humor, or just thank them for sharing. Political or philosophical arguments can be less personal and more enlightening. Speak up and state your opinions!
GEMINI (May 21 – June 20): Someone in charge is taking an interest in you. It could be professional or sexual. This could be great for your career or just a lot of drama at work. Keep your eyes open and think ahead, and you’ll be fine.
CANCER (June 21 – July 22): The stars offer a new romantic adventure! If you’re partnered, that could alleviate boredom, but include your mate in the fun! Anything sporty and sweaty is good, perhaps roller skating in the park or exploring some kink.
LEO (July 23 – August 22): Your eagerness to try new sexual techniques could leave you open to catching something very nasty. Think ahead on prophylaxis whenever you try anything (or anyone) new! And when was your last check-up? You’re probably fine, but make sure to get yourself tested.
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): Even if you’re long-partnered, this is a great time for innovative romantic fun and games. With the love of your life or an “amour du jour,” treat love as an art and explore new techniques.
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): You’ll get a better or more frequent workout if you figure out how to make it more fun. Exercising at home or with a group of friends you regard as family can help. At least shake it up with some variety.
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): Playful banter can lead you into revealing more of yourself than you intended. This can be good, prompting more intimacy and openness in your friendships. Spats along the way should be easily reconciled. Just don’t take yourself so seriously!
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): Rather than acting on shopaholic impulses, use them as clues to think about what you want, what you really need, and how to practice more efficient economy. A household inventory can also spur a smarter approach to finances.
CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): Accept flattery and flirtations with good grace, enjoying them as passing pleasantries. Try practicing the art of compliments and flirtation yourself. It can be done without compromising your integrity!
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): “Retail therapy” is not therapy at all, but a symptom of deeper needs. When you get that expensive impulse, stop and ask what you really want. Deal with the deeper disappointments provoking a yen for compensation, and you’ll be stronger and richer!
PISCES (February 19 – March 19): Wear more of the clothing or jewelry you’ve received as gifts. The mirror of your friends’ eyes can show not only sides of yourself that you rarely consider, but also more of your potential.
