Q Scopes

The disharmony between Mars, Saturn and Pluto continues with Venus aligning with Pluto. Efforts to establish peace can be coercive. Maybe they need to be, but look ahead to see what price you may pay for your solutions.

ARIES (March 20 – April 19): Efforts that you intend as playful and creative can be a lot more aggressive than you realize. Your attempts to schmooze up authority figures can be especially over the top. Challenge your own creativity, not others’.

TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): Getaways with the family can open up power struggles. Community politics are also itching to explode in your face. Quiet time at home, catching up on housework and reading are your best bets for relaxation.

GEMINI (May 21- June 20): Your mouth seems determined to get you into trouble. Is that a bad thing? Depends on where you open your yap. Keeping clear on the time and the place for everything can be a huge challenge! Be ready to make apologies, not promises!

CANCER (June 21- July 22): Feeling a bit trapped in your relationship? Remind yourself of what’s really important in life and remember, that list changes with your moods. Telling your darling what you want doesn’t guarantee you’ll get it, but it does increase the odds considerably.

LEO (July 23 – August 22): Insistence and volume do not help you to be heard, but rather provoke people into ignoring you. The best way to get people’s attention is to listen. Exercise is important, but you are now especially accident prone, so be very careful!

VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): Your playful efforts to provoke others can reveal far more of yourself than you intend. For a more controlled release try your hand at any artistic medium (painting, writing, music…) and see what that brings up for you.

LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): Feeling torn between old traditions and needs for the future? The past offers a solid base and trajectory for the future. It is necessary at times to challenge and uproot traditions. Understand them thoroughly to make better-informed decisions.

SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): Efforts to sound charming can too easily come off as aggressively sexual. Focus on work and goals; don’t be afraid to assert yourself in arguments, but you’ll get a lot further if you listen carefully and adapt in response to what you hear.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): Arguments over money come up much too easily. There are deeper questions of values that are bothering you. Economy is important, but rather than squabble over pennies, try to examine those larger issues.

CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): You may be too sexy for your own good. You can sublimate that energy to drive you to professional success, but that won’t be easy! Maintain a conservative, businesslike demeanor, and meet all challenges with calm, confident grace.

AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): What other people think and say is not as important as your own grasp of the issues. You can’t convince them they’re wrong, but you can get a better understanding of how they think, which can prove helpful in the long run.

PISCES (February 19 – March 19): Organizing friends or colleagues into effective work parties will boost your sexual charisma, but if that’s your motivation, both sides of that equation will fail. Focus on work, and play will fall into place.
