Q Scopes

Mercury is lord of the zodiac now, but he’s in bad aspect. Reign in ego and criticism. Venus in Leo aspecting the outer planets is challenging us all to innovative change. Heed your intuition and keep it sweet.

ARIES (March 20 – April 19): When people disagree with you, it’s not about you! That can be hard to remember at work, especially. Efforts to charm will probably backfire. Just keep your nose to the grindstone and do your own work the best you can.

TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): You want to make big changes at home, but are there others to consider? “Brilliant” surprises will not be appreciated. New recipes are a safer bet. Treat your creative efforts as experiments: There are no failures, only lessons.

GEMINI (May 21- June 20): Glib charm will not go down well. Make your words matter. Use your charm to convey challenging notions. Being nice helps get the message across, but by itself it’s no message at all.

CANCER (June 21- July 22): You need to take care of yourself and get back to basics to care effectively for others. Reconsider your recent accomplishments and talk them over with a close friend. The new moon on the 15th will bring new ideas to explore.

LEO (July 23 – August 22): No matter how much charm you pour on your efforts to help others, they may not be much appreciated. Self-improvement is always a worthwhile effort. Working on yourself can open opportunities to play with others.

VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): Trust your creative and erotic instincts. Some rational discernment is necessary, but you should know within the count of 10 whether you are hearing the call of passionate brilliance or a sirens’ song.

LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): Even without malicious intent, gossip can be very damaging. Your friends mean well, but do you need sloppy blabbermouths complicating your life? Trust your partner’s advice on who your friends really are.

SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): Challenges at work can bring out your best. It will take hard work, creativity and shrewd thinking, but you can win accolades. Your innovative instincts are good. It will take subtle persuasion to get others to go along.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): Kindness and charity can take considerable effort. Some poor annoying fool probably has no idea that he or she is hitting your sensitive points. You don’t have to put up with it, but you can be kind and gentle when stopping it.

CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): As in a bad romantic comedy, a misunderstanding could lead to a passionate affair. More than that? Probably not, but it could still change your life. New ideas at work need some polish, but will help you push forward.

AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): News from your partner could knock you for a loop and change the relationship. If you think of it as a battle, you will lose the war. Pay attention and adapt. Necessary changes won’t be easy but will make things a lot better in the long run.

PISCES (February 19 – March 19): Confusion can lead you to friends for advice. Listen, but consider carefully how their suggestions conflict with your own values. Out of that clash of ideas you’ll come up with something very useful. If your partner is being annoying, he or she really needs your support now.
