The Sun in Aquarius opposing Mars in Leo prompts outbursts of ego. Everybody is s bit more certain of being right. Could you be as deluded as they? Uranus in Pisces triggers explosions of devotions. Expect tempers to hit the roof, addicts to hit bottom and religious fundies to hit anything in reach. Sublimate passion and rage into artistic brilliance.
ARIES (March 20 – April 19): There is enough energy in you to explode, or to lead your friends on whatever ” jihad” you take up. Meditate and focus in on the source of that power. Then you can succeed in the “greater “jihad”” of compassionate awareness.
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): Trying to do too much at both home and work can wear you down. Time out with your friends can be a release, but bitching and boozing just feeds the problem and doesn’t solve it. Keep the future and your ideals in mind.
GEMINI (May 21- June 20): The best way to “win” an argument is to learn from your opponents, not to devastate them. Your mastery of any topic is best shown by fairness and ability to incorporate new ideas, no matter how far out they seem.
CANCER (June 21- July 22): You’re sizzling in the sack, and needn’t prove anything to anyone. Try out new techniques, as you feel so inspired. Giving in to pressure will invite disaster. You can go insane, but at least keep it safe and consensual.
LEO (July 23 – August 22): The generosity of your intent is above question, but does your partner really want what you offer? Grand gestures may miss the mark. Problems can be best solved in the bedroom, but be most generous in your listening there, too.
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): Others’ efforts are at cross-purposes to your own. Adjusting your approach is easier than trying to change theirs. Develop your own teamwork skills in ways that will serve you well in the long run.
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): The future you were planning for ain’t what it used to be! Inspiration can point the way to pragmatic innovations. Allow room for experimental trial and error before finding a satisfactory solution.
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): Feeling that your success serves your family and community, you may have it the wrong way around. OK, it goes both ways, but still … . Are you giving enough credit to those who helped you forward?
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): Staying at home will cause more arguments than it will avoid. Yes, your ideas will certainly shake up your community, but try to be gentle and diplomatic. “You can catch more flies with honey…”
CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): Reevaluate the virtues you bring to relationships, both personal and professional. Discuss this with a friend to get clarity, honesty and surprises, mostly for the better. But brace your ego for some hard reality.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): You may be a little too loud and dominating in your relationship. Reconsider, solo or with your sweetie, what’s important in a partnership. Focus on humility and growth; look at important questions in new ways.
PISCES (February 19 – March 19): Demands at work are pulling you out of the shell you’d rather stay in. Though tempting to reassert yourself in this tug-of-war, it’s better to re-imagine yourself. Rethink your purpose in life and how you try to fulfill that.
