The Sun conjoins Saturn in Libra, clarifying the limits of relationship. Such reality checks can be unpleasant, but romance can’t last without work and realism. Work on it!
ARIES (March 20 – April 19): Not getting the attention you want, especially from the person you want, can make you especially cranky. Avoid angry and inappropriate outbursts “Brilliant” inspirations probably need some work, but your creative juices are high. Show what you can do.
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): If you’re not partnered yet you might meet that someone special by the end of the week! There’s no predicting true love, but exciting, challenging conversations can open doors to meeting amazing new people. Don’t be shy!
GEMINI (May 21- June 20): Fanciful notions can take a dark turn, either delicious or morbid. If morbid, stay with it and see where that’s coming from. Focus on work! Your colleagues deserve some input on new ideas that affect them “before” you take any initiative.
CANCER (June 21- July 22): You’re shining at work, although that might make you feel precarious, as on a tight rope or “king of the hill” needing to defend yourself. Acknowledging the effort and support of others will help you feel less lonely at the top.
LEO (July 23 – August 22): Taking yourself too seriously is sure to lead to arguments. If you’re really so smart, prove it by taking a class in something entirely new, or read a book that will challenge your mind.
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): Take conversations to new depths. Challenging your own thinking is smarter than challenging others’. Someone you’re sweet on may be ready to get more intimate. Raise the subject, but be careful and read the signals carefully to know how.
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): Sex and money are the biggest issues in relationship. Both are likely to come up. The actual argument would be over money; sex could even be the resolution, but either way, stay focused on what’s important and where your partner ranks on that list.
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): Working your ass off, but does anyone notice? It may not seem so, but they do. Keep your attention on your goals and don’t worry about the attention. Opportunities for love – or a rocking facsimile – are coming up. If you got love, get rocking!
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): Boundary issues with co-workers need some discussion. Financial opportunities will be coming up soon, but they’ll need hard work and perhaps some sacrifice. Don’t screw it up by arguing with someone who wants to help. You can say, “No, thanks,” politely.
CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): Friends who challenge you can be the best friends around – or are they? Pay close attention. Are they really for you or against you? Be attentive, especially when you don’t like what they say. Even from enemies, harsh criticism can prove helpful.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): Wanting to show off your intellect could end up demonstrating your limits more than your genius. Don’t speak too soon and be open to teachers who can help you toward even clearer thinking. An open mind makes you a better partner.
PISCES (February 19 – March 19): Hiding feelings of loss and dread only makes them worse. Sharing them with your partner can help increase emotional intimacy. Many others feel the same. This experience and your strong empathy will soon prove helpful.
