Venus enters Leo while in hard aspect to Sun and Jupiter. Yes, there can be too much charm, sweetness and light. Most of the other planets want to get to work. Scale back from saccharine to diplomatic and you can do anything.
ARIES (March 20 – April 19): If malaise hits, focus on what’s bothering you and get into action. Your voice is even louder and more forceful than usual. If you feel a need to yell at others, talk gently – at least first – with a trusted friend.
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): Playful flirtations are likely to overstep bounds. Scale it back just a little bit! Optimistic financial plans are way too much. If it looks too good to be true, it is. Get solid, reliable advice before putting your money anywhere.
GEMINI (May 21- June 20): Keep your hands busy, ears open and mouth shut – except for lovemaking. Sex is great, but verbal intercourse can get contentious. Housecleaning is the most productive and second best way of working off that energy.
CANCER (June 21- July 22): Indulge yourself with a massage, a day at a spa, a long leisurely visit at a museum or a scenic hike. The company of a very close, trusted friend is ideal; don’t settle for anyone less. Solitude is good for the soul, too.
LEO (July 23 – August 22): Venus brings you even more charm and gorgeousness entering your sign on the 6th. She’s pretty amped up, so be careful not to overdo it. Those friends who are encouraging you, are they laughing with you or at you?
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): Friends mean well. Bless their hearts, if not their brains. Criticizing them will backfire and their ideas could prove springboards to better ones. You need an outlet; save your kvetching for a very trusted and patient friend.
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): Enjoy the fruits of your labor, but be careful not to over-indulge. Too much partying could make you sick, or bring latent problems to the surface. If friends offer health advice, the less you like it, the more you should listen.
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): Too much individual initiative can be your downfall, but with forethought, intuition and advice from friends, you can do almost anything – within reason. If you’re not entirely happy where you’re working, get resumes to wherever you’d rather be.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): Stay way back from the line between flirtation and sexual harassment. You’re a little too frisky. In the right time and place, that can work for you spectacularly, but elsewhere it could undermine your professional reputation.
CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): Your drive is strong enough to achieve nearly anything. Keep your mind focused on necessary work and away from arguments, especially at home. Sex may not solve any problems, but it can help you endure them.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): Your mouth is the magic door to trouble. Think ahead, listen attentively and be very careful about the right time and place to get down and dirty. Remember what you must never, ever do in your own back yard!
PISCES (February 19 – March 19): Trying to be helpful around the house can cause trouble with your partner or roommates. Talk, and match actions to words. An argument with a friend can bruise your ego, but brave it and clear the air.
