Pluto in Capricorn squaring Saturn in Libra signals social revolution and reaction. Mars in Leo square Venus in Scorpio trumpets – perhaps too brazenly – sexually assertive displays. These discordant pairs, clashing with each other, bring sex and politics into an explosive mix!
ARIES (March 20 – April 19): Nothing wrong with wanting to play, but your insistent urges can stir up a lot of trouble. Keeping it in the appropriate time and place can be a challenge; then again, stirring up trouble also has its time and place. Just think ahead!
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): Seems everyone wants an argument now, and even you find them hard to avoid. You can present important issues without blaming or confronting others. Well, not much, but sometimes healing requires a bruised ego or two. Those heal too!
GEMINI (May 21- June 20): Sexual experimentation can lead to big trouble. That needn’t stop you, but do be very careful. Anything risky is now more so than usual. It is not a good time to experiment with erotic auto-asphyxiation. It bears repeating: Be very careful!
CANCER (June 21- July 22): It’s not the time for real-estate deals or buying major home appliances. Your ideas of fun and games may cause trouble at home. Arguments can get things out in the open, but take time to think; don’t rush to a solution.
LEO (July 23 – August 22): Playing up your ethnic background or community experience makes you look and feel sexier. Somehow that will annoy some folks, causing arguments, distractions and possibly accidents. Keep cool and look both ways before crossing anyone!
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): Arguments and seductions can open up more of you than you want to reveal. When you get antsy, talk it out with a trusted friend before acting. Let economic necessity challenge your creativity. With focus and patience, you can be brilliant!
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): What you consider to be “discipline” can be read by housemates as intimidation or unfair rigidness. Try to see their point of view. Your financial plans may be too ambitious. Conserve resources and stay true to core values.
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): Your erotic energy is red hot, but perhaps too hot at work or other places where it’s inappropriate. Sublimate that charisma, and keep your mind focused on your goals – if you can!
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): Temptations to argue are probably more over your own personal worries about the future than whatever issues are on the table. You need a trusted counselor or confidante more than you need a debate.
CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): Sex and politics are not considered proper topics for conversation. You can have some deliciously provocative improper conversations with friends, but remember the convention at work – or you could get into big trouble.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): You have to strut your stuff, and to an extent that can be good for you. Be careful not to get carried away, or you’ll reveal much more than anyone needs or wants to know. An airy, philosophical tone can help guard your secrets.
PISCES (February 19 – March 19): Adventures have their risks, but nothing ventured… . There’s a broad middle ground between being stodgy and throwing caution to the wind. Slow down just enough so you don’t do something stupid, but not so much that you miss a great opportunity.
