Venus retrograding across the Sun in Gemini triggers bold flirtations that will probably go awry. Keep a sense of humor. As Mercury enters Cancer protective moods can shade your thinking. Ask older relatives for family recipes or share some new ones.
ARIES (March 20 – April 19): Do not flirt at work. The gym maybe, but neither now. You seem to be mixing up flirtation with argument. Instead of trying to pick someone up you might rather pick a fight. Feistiness has its charm, if you can get the right balance.
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): You are cute, charming and wonderful, but working it is going to draw unwanted attention and costs. Just be yourself without the self-conscious effort. If your usual “divertissements” just annoy you, try out some new amusements.
GEMINI (May 21- June 20): A new relationship may be in the offing, or an old one is just off. Keeping your home together can require hard work (the easy part) and diplomacy (not so easy). Focus your criticisms on yourself.
CANCER (June 21- July 22): A new exercise program can do you a world of good, but start out easy! Learning a new skill can help you take advantage of changes at work. Your insights to team dynamics can also secure your position, but you don’t have to share them.
LEO (July 23 – August 22): A binge with your friends can get mighty expensive and lead to arguments. Before going out, think hard about whose company you value and why. Sometimes it’s best to “have previous plans.” Political action is good. Criticizing your comrades, not so much.
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): You’re good with the boss. Don’t do anything that could look like you’re kissing up. Tips from experts can make your work more effective and less stressful. Some adventurous fun with your family can also turn things around for you.
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): Temptation to argue comes out of your own anxieties. Give yourself and everyone else a break by focusing on your own problems and unburden yourself with a therapist, a favorite aunt, or a good stand-in.
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): You can be a fierce advocate for the queer community or your own part of that. Be careful not to overplay your hand. Speak up for universal rights and equality over privilege and you’re sure to make your case.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): Your partner or other connections can help you find a new job; move quickly. You may be a bit selfish in appraising your relationship, but if you’re not good for each other move on.
CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): Focus on foresight and good behavior. Rash actions and outspokenness can undermine your work and get you into trouble with your boss or clients. Remember your colleagues are on your team. Approach problems as a healer, not as a critic.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): You’re itching for a good fight, but can too easily land in a bad one. To fix economic problems be a healer, not a warrior. You can get more flies with honey instead of vinegar without compromising your principles.
PISCES (February 19 – March 19): Where has your life been heading and where do you want it to grow? Reexamine your priorities and goals. Domestic comforts and lessons are a basis for growing in new directions, not a cozy nest to hide in.
