Mars in Libra making a T-square to Uranus and Pluto suggests solutions to major crises, but the teamwork involved means that you have to adapt your plans to suit others, not vice versa. These problems aren’t going away soon. Consider it just an early step.
ARIES (March 20 – April 19): What you have to say is too important to go off half-cocked. Bombastic challenges usually get shut down. Listen to others and think about how to express yourself so that they will appreciate what you have to say.
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): Don’t worry about the global economy. Everyone’s in trouble, but relative to it all, you’re going to be OK. Your hard work is appreciated and valued, and some meditation will take the edge off. Keep those two in balance and you’re fine.
GEMINI (May 21- June 20): Efforts to defend your pals may be ill-considered. Listen to them about what they need and be clear, but adaptable, on long-term strategies. Reconsider your own plans for the future. Let go of some old ideas; identify problems now, solve them later.
CANCER (June 21- July 22): Feeling alone and disconnected can be a lesson in standing on your own. When you feel negative and self-critical focus on ways to improve yourself. Decide on some positive habits to develop and stick with them.
LEO (July 23 – August 22): Some time alone to look after yourself will do you good. When the Sun enters Leo on the 22nd you’ll feel stronger and more certain, perhaps too much so. Approach others with modesty and sensitivity.
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): Asserting your sexuality, whether as an individual or as part of your LGBT community, requires insight and sensitivity. Reconsider your place in your community and your own deepest truths. Maturity and growth require adaptivity.
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): Feeling lost and disconnected can be a good thing. Take yourself on an intellectual adventure, preferably an artistic one. You won’t find yourself in a museum, but you could find yourself open to brilliant new ideas.
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): Sex can offer distraction from or insight to your problems. Talk with an intimate partner (sexually or not) about whatever’s bothering you. Without that clarity you can get crankier, undermining your work and your health.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): Making plans with your partner may push you to reevaluate your own priorities, to look harder at your responsibilities. Some creative thinking can get you through this, but you won’t manage it on your own. Keep talking with your mate.
CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): Don’t take anything for granted with your health. Bad news now can be dealt with better than worse news later. Change your habits: quit smoking, revise (or start) your exercise routine, improve your diet. It’s not too late – yet.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): Trying to be fun and witty, you’re sure to upset someone. Maybe they need or deserve a kick, but think ahead about consequences. Also remember the difference between justice and vengeance. Are you speaking up for noble purposes or from resentment?
PISCES (February 19 – March 19): Refinancing a mortgage now could work out very well, but do your homework, be very clear on details and fight for better terms. Domestic problems can be assuaged in the bedroom, but tough issues and decisions still need to be dealt with.
