Q Scopes

Mercury, Mars, Neptune, and Chiron, all together in Aquarius, unleash huge energy but without direction. Meditation and art help focus. Precipitous actions can lead to disaster. Venus in Aries and Sun in Pisces aspect Jupiter in another part of Aquarius, not contacting the other four, but offering some perspective and hope of making the best of this.

ARIES (March 20 – April 19): There is such a thing as too much time with your friends, or perhaps it’s the wrong friends. Take some time alone to center yourself and choose more carefully the people you do spend time with.

TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): Obsessing on your career is counter-productive. Step back, meditate, take some time alone to decide on where you’d like to be in 10 or 20 years and talk with friends on how you’d like to get there.

GEMINI (May 21- June 20): Your head is way too busy. Career plans feel nebulous; just keep putting one foot in front of the other. (Which way is front?) Some simple physical fun with a friend, or a few, will help you regain focus and direction.

CANCER (June 21- July 22): Erotic opportunities are throwing themselves at you. It’s time to get wild and experiment! If partnered, see what you can coax your baby into or open yourself to being coaxed. Flirtations at work can help build useful connections.

LEO (July 23 – August 22): Nothing is perfect; wanting an ideal partnership can leave you frustrated. What’s good in what you have? Some adventure, in and out of bed, can liven things up. Speak frankly about what you want; and listen as well!

VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): Feeling good about your body helps improve your health. Sex is good, but authentic physical affection is better. Take time for some loving. If single, get your hugs and kisses where you can. It could lead to something more!

LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): Exercising with others – whether running, swimming with pals or brushing up on techniques at work – will be good for the morale and creative juices of all involved. It can also improve your partnership, or help lead to one!

SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): Plan A: Approach your family (natal or chosen) playfully, try to involve then in some game or entertainment. Plan B: Having fun on your own will put you in a better frame of mind to handle contentious relatives or roommates.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): You’re a natural born story-teller, so try to collect and relate what you can of your community or family history. Use whatever talents you have to make it an artistic, creative project.

CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): Speak your mind. It will seem to cause some confusion and ruckus, but that misunderstanding is already present and needs airing to get everyone really on the same page. Logic is not your friend now. Work the emotional, poetic perspectives.

AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): Worries about money reflect deeper insecurities. You’re going through a lot of personal changes lately and need clarification. Have a sisterly chat with someone you can count on to be brutally honest.

PISCES (February 19 – March 19): Budget a little money for impulse spending, but when you see that gotta-have item, ask yourself what it represents that you really want, deep down, but think you can’t have. And think about how maybe you can!
