Q Scopes

Venus is squaring Mars, boosting creative and sexual tensions. Impulse and ego are very strong here, not true love. Commitments to a higher cause can prove dramatic. Promises of love will just explode.

ARIES (March 20 – April 19): “All’s fair in love and war,” but there are consequences that go beyond victory. Beware of collateral damage to your reputation and other regrets. Are you really fighting for something worthwhile? Or just needing to assert yourself? Think ahead!

TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): Cleaning house or digging up family secrets can expose a lot more than you bargained for. Someone, probably your partner, will not be pleased. Jealousy is useless and destructive. Keeping your home together may require a new open-mindedness.

GEMINI (May 21- June 20): A winning streak in love and games won’t last long, but enjoy it while it does. Be careful, though. Too much fun could upset your partner, or botch efforts to start something new. Listen to your friends, but don’t trust all of them.

CANCER (June 21- July 22): The need to assert yourself can run you afoul of authority. It may be more strategic in the long run to let a boss steal credit for your innovations.
Deserved credit will come your way in time.

LEO (July 23 – August 22): You may indeed have all the answers, but don’t be too eager with them. Let people figure it out for themselves and you might even learn something in the process. Deal with small health problems before they become large ones!

VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): You could be in for a raise. Make very nice with people who decide that, but more importantly, make sure your true value is clear to see. Promotions bring bigger challenges. Don’t be intimidated or over-eager. Size up the situation carefully before acting.

LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): Popularity is a double-edged sword. Invitations from your friends can cause friction with your family and mate. If your partner suggests that some of your pals are taking advantage of you, he or she is probably right.

SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): Your efforts to get ahead will be noticed, but that will also highlight your faults and mistakes. Nobody’s perfect. Your best strategy is to ask your boss or another expert for help where you need improvement.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): If you’re looking for a lover, look among your friends. If you have one, get your baby to socialize more with your pals. In love and friendship, think about who you want to be with 12 years from now.

CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): Reality is about to lose those clean definitions you love so dearly. You can gain empathy and foresight, but like any new skill those can be challenging at first. Yes, you are going a little crazy, but that can be a brilliant adventure.

AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): Secrets will be revealed! Keep your mouth shut about others and especially at work! Focus on digging up your own with a counselor or a trusted confidante, and you could free yourself from old fears and anxieties.

PISCES (February 19 – March 19): You have lots of opportunities to indulge fleeting passions, but don’t mistake them for love. Life is about to get a bit harder and more serious. You’ll need to define and focus your goals, but that will take time. Don’t make snap decisions now.
