Mars just entered Taurus, shifting everyone into more careful, determined methods. He’s now trine Pluto pushing us to push harder toward our own goals, making cooperation more difficult, but absolutely necessary!
ARIES (March 20 – April 19): If you stop to think and plan, you can be brilliant with money. Otherwise, it could burn a hole in your pocket. Either way your dealings with money will be noticed and could have a great effect on your career.
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): You’re charged and eager to reach new heights. “Tried and true” ways may be obsolete – and will likely lead you into arguments. You need new ideas. Be willing to challenge your mind in ways you never dreamed of.
GEMINI (May 21- June 20): Your deepest, darkest erotic fantasies could come true, but you have to be clear and articulate about what you want. If you can’t figure out what that is, fulfilling your baby’s desires could be just as hot.
CANCER (June 21- July 22): You’re a political dynamo, Your energy could be over the top, so take a little time out to think strategically. Some help from your partner or friends should help you focus and direct that energy where it will do the most good.
LEO (July 23 – August 22): Your take-charge attitude may be more than some people can take. Your colleagues are not hostages or slaves. Be attentive to their morale, and make sure they have a chance to be heard. Some of their ideas will be tremendously helpful.
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): You’re taking your fun way too seriously. Games are about entertainment, not annihilating your playmates. Creative challenges offer a better outlet. If you don’t have a hobby where you can push yourself, attend a show that offers a novel challenge.
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): Sometimes our little GLBT communities can feel a bit incestuous. Should that stop a sudden spark of passion from turning a “sisterly” friendship into something more? At least talk it through to see what’s there and where it might go.
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): Arguments with your partner can quickly go from heated to hot. If there’s nothing to squabble about, don’t feel bad. Any good intellectual challenge that sparks the brain will ignite passions as well.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): You’re supercharged for hard work, but think a minute: Fear is an effective motivator, but more than that, you’re running away from something you should be running toward. That’s much better for your health and your accomplishment.
CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): Your efforts at fun may look like effort more than fun to others. Creative accomplishment is good. Go ahead and push yourself to new depths. Your artistic accomplishment could be as challenging and as brilliant as giving birth to yourself.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): Now more then ever your home should be your castle, your ashram, and your love nest. Sharing space may be challenging. Make sure to have a clean sense of personal space somewhere, but be careful to be respectful of family and housemates.
PISCES (February 19 – March 19): Once you start talking, it may be hard to stop. To save a lot of trouble, think first, get right to the point and dig for the deeper truth. Friends will be much too glad to help, leading to interesting and, perhaps, very illuminating arguments.
