In the last degree of Pisces, Venus is turning direct, suggesting spiritual lessons from recent issues and conflicts over how we look, flirt and establish immediate contact with others, especially in love (or whatever passes…). The Sun aspecting Venus from Aries can bring sudden insights to these issues, but really getting the lessons will take a little work.
ARIES (March 20 – April 19): A quiet retreat in a beautiful place will help you sort out recent problems. Focus on issues of intimacy and authenticity. Ideally take someone you really care about, but better to go alone than to drag along someone just for company.
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): Make a short list, less than 6, of your nearest and dearest friends. Share with them, individually or together, something you feel deeply, about them or about your own hopes for the future.
GEMINI (May 21- June 20): Your friends have some great ideas about how to clarify your career goals. Well, they may need some work, but listen and build on what they have to offer. That may require facing up to recent mistakes.
CANCER (June 21- July 22): Re-examine perspectives and values that you recently dismissed. Whether or not you actually change your mind about anything, a show of open-mindedness will help you get ahead. At the very least, you will learn something new!
LEO (July 23 – August 22): Telling a Leo not to be shy may be like telling a fish to swim, but now is the time to be bold! Follow the impulse to adventure and it’s sure to lead to some hot, steamy rewards.
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): Hot erotic impulses may not solve the problems in your partnership, but they can open the door towards solution. In a business partnership, reviewing the financial situation – especially insurance and joint accounts – will have to do it.
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): Someone else’s concerns for your health may seem surprising and out of place, but listen carefully and at least consider a check-up. Clear up recent misunderstandings with colleagues. Talking about TV, movies, music or any art can help open up touchy discussions.
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): Some fun and games can help promote morale. A party, creative project or a cultural event for your sports team, work out buddies or co-workers will help everyone to co-operate and perform better.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): What do you have to offer a community arts project? Probably more than you realize, at least the patronage of attending an event. See what there is, and look for opportunities to do more.
CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): Make peace with neighbors and relatives. Being open and listening doesn’t require agreement. Just show a willingness to hear them respectfully and take them seriously. It’s probably more about clearing up confusion than a real disagreement.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): “Neither a borrower nor a lender be.” If you have any outstanding loans or debts, try to clear them up now, or at least clean up payment schedules. Be a pal if you have to, but don’t be a patsy.
PISCES (February 19 – March 19): If you feel lost, make up a list of what’s important to you, materially and spiritually. Playing with a new look (or a few) can open up new possibilities, but if it requires spending money, make sure you can get a refund!
