Q Scopes

The Sun entering Virgo and Mars coming home to Scorpio push us to work. Both aspect Neptune so focus may be hard to achieve. Mediation helps. Venus, Mercury and Jupiter offer opportunity through conviviality. Mix work with pleasure and you can get way ahead.

ARIES (March 20 – April 19): Life has been too intense lately and nobody who knows would blame you for letting off steam, but most don’t know. Try to pour that energy into work or exercise. Puttering around your home will also help keep your mouth out of trouble.

TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): Share good news unless it involves money. Friends are too likely to exploit your good nature. Stash that cash where it will be safe and collect a bit of interest. Your own charms should be enough to hold your pals’ interest.

GEMINI (May 21- June 20): Flirtation (in the right places), affability and your best manners will open doors for you. Turn up the charm. Think ahead about what doors you want open. Social temptations can be a real distraction from big opportunities.

CANCER (June 21- July 22): Daydreams can be a serious diversion from work that needs to be done. That would just feed your worries and undermine your health. No, you can’t do everything so do what’s most important.

LEO (July 23 – August 22): Keep your energy from being wasted through your mouth and you can accomplish a lot. Prioritize home, family and community in that order. If there’s a more economical way to do anything you can find it.

VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): Trust your instincts to do and say the right thing. You can hardly go wrong. Friends and authority figures will prove helpful. Don’t waste this gift but be very mindful of your long-range goals, professional and otherwise.

LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): Friends can help promote you, but be clear about what you want. Being too nice can encourage disastrous dysfunction. Opportunities for advancement and the chance to quietly accomplish a lot may pull you in different directions. Balancing both could take some juggling.

SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): Your ruler Mars, coming home to your sign, boosts your energy. It may be hard to focus at first. Accept guidance, even criticism from your friends. Blowing off some steam in the bedroom can actually help.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): Take a chance on love, or even just sex. New opportunities await for a grand romance, or new thrills with your old love. Breaking appointments with platonic friends can cause trouble. Reschedule with respect.

CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): With recent pressures abating you may feel a bit adrift. Your partner can help provide direction and focus. Your natural instinct for work and accomplishment will also point you in the right direction.

AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): New ideas may show where you need to step back a bit, take a broader view and find opportunity. New connections at work can prove helpful. Balancing cooperation with subtle individual initiatives can challenge your integrity and new friendships. Some wit is necessary; too much is disastrous.

PISCES (February 19 – March 19): Nobody lives up to your ideals, but neither do you. Don’t blame them for not keeping your universe perfect. Your helpful suggestions are taken more as annoying criticism. Keep the focus on quiet, meditative self-improvement and you will be much admired.
