Venus coming home to Libra normally helps us to be more gracious, social and polite. Opposing Uranus on the way, in whips up some crazy ideas of what that might mean. Compassion and imagining yourself in the other’s position is usually the best way to start out.
ARIES (March 20 – April 19): You’re suddenly looking marriageable no matter what local laws allow. Don’t be nervous about letting that someone special see your inner wounds. Allowing yourself to be that vulnerable demonstrates truer, deeper confidence in both of you.
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): A friend in need is a pain in the ass. You have your own problems. Even so, helping out your pal can not only get you out of your own problems for a bit, but help point you to a solution.
GEMINI (May 21- June 20): Your idea of social outreach can be a little outre. One on one is fine for scaring off people you don’t want to deal with, but if you’re working with a group keep your focus on your goals and behave accordingly.
CANCER (June 21- July 22): New recipes or techniques will not go the way you expect but could be better than you’d hoped for. Even if things bollix up, you get points for trying. At work keep your boss up on any experiments, just in case!
LEO (July 23 – August 22): “Helpful” advice and corrections are not necessarily appreciated, as you could find out the hard way. An earnest, soul-searching talk about sex can be more satisfying than actually doing it. Not that one rules out the other!
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): You can find amazing deals at estate sales, perhaps even your true love. If you already have one of those, bring him or her along and you could find some treasure that will become an emblematic keepsake.
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): You’re looking especially gorgeous. The attention you get will surprise you. Romance is there for you, but what would your partner say? Of course you’re not just a pretty face; a new contact could prove very helpful as a colleague.
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): Hiding out from the social whirl may give you some peace, but doesn’t really do much to allay your anxieties. Hum the first tune that comes to mind. That song will offer insights to face your worries and put them in perspective.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): Opportunities abound to “party hardy.” Be careful not to go overboard. Seek out new, interesting, unusual people at these events. Their perspectives can trigger new insights into your own roots.
CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): Career opportunities are looking good for you, but are you really prepared? Know your strengths and the difference between reaching and overreaching. Work may be causing you to neglect issues at home. You need to talk with someone there!
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): You might want to think a little harder before opening your mouth. Does it really need to be said? Your words carry more weight than you realize. Treat them like currency and don’t waste them.
PISCES (February 19 – March 19): Sexual healing or sexual reeling? Opportunities abound as Venus is flashing her goodies in your house of illicit pleasures. She also offers a deeper challenge to reexamine your priorities and values. Question No. 1: where is the healing?
