Venus in Scorpio aspecting a variety of outer planets suggests opportunities for sexual challenges and healing. Too often people equate that with “letting it all hang out.” The opposite may be true. Either way, be clear on your own erotic needs and true to your own standards and integrity. That will enable you to grow and learn as you need.
ARIES (March 20 – April 19): You can get what you want and make your dreams come true if you know what that is and are willing to do the work. Fear of compromise can challenge your cooperative skills, but look for synergistic opportunities in those “compromises.”
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): Work demands may test your relationship. An understanding partner will respect your career needs, even if those are hard to understand. Share hopes for the future, but don’t make promises you can’t be sure of keeping.
GEMINI (May 21- June 20): Endless possibilities can be confusing. Focus on the next step and the immediate tasks. Someone with experience and authority can help you keep your goals in mind and to stay on that path.
CANCER (June 21- July 22): Flirtations can get you in a lot deeper than you had intended. That could be a good thing, but keep your eyes open and your wits about you. Always know where the back door is – and remember, there are no secrets!
LEO (July 23 – August 22): Asserting that your home is your castle could cost you your consort, or at least foment revolution in the palace. It may be hard to hear your baby’s complaints, but make the effort. Rumpling the sheets can help smooth out everything else.
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): Your efforts at sly wit can go too easily awry. Try to focus that brain on problem-solving, especially at work. Competitive teamwork can be helpful as long as it stays friendly and cooperative.
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): What constitutes a bargain? You and your partner may have sharp disagreements on financial and other values. Pragmatism and a sense of humor can get you through, and these issues can stimulate helpful ideas at work.
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): You can hardly help being sexy and playful, and why should you? Well, it could cause problems at home where your attentions are needed. Focus that playful energy on clarifying your domestic situation.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): There’s an awful lot on your mind, and it’s not easy to put into any kind of order, especially in a logical way. Meditation, art and music will help you to make sense of it and find a means of expression.
CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): You can be especially charming and manipulative, but does that fit your values? Keeping your values and ambitions in sync can be a challenge. The ends don’t justify the means, but the means do foreshadow the end.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): Being friendly with the folks upstairs can easily look like kissing-up. Stay true to your own values and priorities so that will be mitigated. Meditation and charitable service also help, but some people will still eye your friendliness suspiciously.
PISCES (February 19 – March 19): You need time alone for meditation and personal healing. Find inspiration in metaphysical art – stained glass? tarot? mandalas? If you must spend time with others, make sure to put part of it into some kind of charity.
