Q Scopes

Venus in Virgo and Mercury in Scorpio are in a long sextile now aspecting Pluto and Uranus, bringing shrewd insight to social and political problems. Pay close attention to the details of how things work if you really want to change them.

ARIES (March 20 – April 19): If you get it into your head to try something new at work, consult with someone first. It will help you look like a better team player and could save you a lot of trouble. They might even improve on your ideas.

TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): Looking creatively at new ideas can wake up some inner demons. Your partner will help you dispel those old monsters, but it may take a lot of discussion. Schedule time to discuss your worries and fears, but also your hopes.

GEMINI (May 21- June 20): Check into your family health history, especially on Mom’s side. Some community work can help you find new purpose in your life and make some very helpful connections. If you’re already there, you may need to work on better connections.

CANCER (June 21- July 22): Worrying about your role and position in your family can make you sick. Don’t worry. If you’re feeling neglected, remember the telephone works both ways. Focus on your work, don’t obsess. Pace yourself, breathe, relax.

LEO (July 23 – August 22): Your playful impulses can be too enthusiastic and easily misunderstood. Think before speaking. The planets are conspiring to make a great fool of you. You can handle that, but stay alert to the time and the place, and the consequences.

VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): Your partner needs a good listener right now, not just conversationally, but on other levels. That could lead to novel fun in the bedroom, but be very aware of safety issues that might come up.

LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): The solution to your relationship problems is not in the bedroom. There are other kinds of creative play and challenges that can help you understand each other better. Like what? That’s the creative part.

SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): Your mouth is liable to get you into trouble, especially at work. Keep your mind intrigued with new techniques and away from low amusements and gossip. If you can’t say anything nice, learn to say it in a different language.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): You may chafe at authority and discipline, but take the long view and see how you can use them to your advantage. Fun-loving friends who urge you to do crazy things are more than fun-loving, and less than friends.

CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): Don’t beat yourself up for trouble with friends. You can work on solutions, find better friends, or prefer quality to quantity. Perspectives that are new to you (perhaps old and foreign) can help resolve domestic troubles. Be willing to give in order to get.

AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): Don’t let new position or responsibilities tempt you to spending sprees, or into taking yourself too seriously! Someone who sees you naked on a regular basis will be happy to help you keep things in proportion.

PISCES (February 19 – March 19): The strength of your roots and history shouldn’t protect you from challenges, but help you adapt to them. When you’re juggling too much take time out to meditate. Swallow your pride and reach out to friends. They’ll be glad to help.
