Q Scopes

The Sun is in Taurus wanting things nice, comfy, and stable, but he’s up against wild and wacky Uranus in Pisces. The trick is not to resist the crazy disruptions but to be adaptable and find the value of changing arrangements.

ARIES (March 20 – April 19): These days everyone’s worried about money, but which of your worries are real? Take time out to meditate and do some mental housecleaning to sort the paranoiac fears from the real problems. Then deal with the latter.

TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): Is it pragmatism or stubborn fear that’s shooting at your dreams? You may have to recalculate your long-range ambitions, but don’t give them up entirely. Insights from friends seem confusing at first, but can prove helpful if you sit and think about them.

GEMINI (May 21- June 20): Friends at work seem to be holding you back from achieving your goals. They are probably, in fact, holding preventing you from making a huge mistake! At least consider what they have to say.

CANCER (June 21- July 22): Of course you’re getting into all those arguments because it’s your friends who are being so stubborn. Yeah. Right. The conflicts between your arguments and your real aims are much more apparent to others than to you. Stop. Listen. Learn!

LEO (July 23 – August 22): The way your secrets, especially the sexy ones, pop out, it’s a good thing you’re not shy. Maintaining your dignity may be a challenge, though! Rolling your eyes to express long suffering with impertinence only works with a touch of irony. (Google Margaret Dumont.)

VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): A little spat with your partner can get way out of hand. Cool down. Make every effort to be adaptable and to see things from the other side. You probably agree more than you realize, and can learn from what differences there are.

LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): Every STD in town seems to be looking for you, so be very good, or at least be very careful! Someone at work is likely to be offended. If it’s you, let it pass! If not, be very ready to apologize.

SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): Cheating at anything will blow up in your face. Or perhaps it’s someone else cheating on you. Expect rude surprises in anything fun. This is no time to explore skydiving or erotic asphyxiation.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): Dedication at work can distract you from needs at home, maybe including a thorough cleaning to protect yourself from allergies, mold or other environmental illnesses. At least make sure not to neglect your family or housemates.

CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): The point of fun is to have fun. Don’t be too attached to the rules. You need a good tickling, like it or not. Somehow you will either provoke or emit protests of screaming and shouting. Getting tickled is safest. Coochie-coo!

AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): Household expenses contain nasty surprises. Rethink the budget; find new ways to economize. Put your mind to it and you can find some very good ways to save money. Staying calm is the hardest part.

PISCES (February 19 – March 19): The more carefully you measure your words and shut your lips, the likelier secrets will get out. Don’t even think about them! Word games and songs – the more outre the better – will offer a safe distraction.
