Mars retrograde in Virgo quincunx to Uranus in Aries triggers arguments galore and accidents especially at work. Think and consult before acting! Look before you leap.
ARIES (March 20 – April 19): You are now as prone to accidents as ever. Second-guessing yourself won’t help. Just slow down and pay attention! As a bonus you might notice details that can improve your work, your health and your reputation as a genius.
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): Seeing your mother in the mirror might be a bit spooky, but there are lessons there (besides acceptance!). With maturity comes an appreciation for what she intended at least. A part of her will always be with you, so find the good in that.
GEMINI (May 21- June 20): A hard reality check can make you recalculate your goals, but it’s not all bad. We all have to trim our sails now and then. Trust your instincts. Friends offering challenges may not have your best interest at heart. Think ahead!
CANCER (June 21- July 22): If you seek the spotlight, you’ll regret it. Someone’s likely to shove you under it anyway, and you may not like that either. Share credit, shoulder blame and be careful of who you trust.
LEO (July 23 – August 22): Trying too hard to promote yourself can antagonize colleagues. Modesty doesn’t mean you have to deny yourself, but try to keep your ego out of it and present your work in a simple, straightforward way.
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): Erotic exploration is likelier to teach you what you don’t like than what you do. Experimenting is fine if you can joke about it afterwards. Trust the instinctive “no.” Feeling you have to prove something is the surest way to trouble.
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): Be very careful of your health. Cold and wet are not your friends! Temptations and invitations to parade around in something skimpy may be irresistible, but if you want to get hot, stay warm!
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): Innovative efforts are likely to fail, but even then you can learn something important. Be careful not to damage material resources, working relationships or your health. Your dark, nasty humor wants to emerge for the wrong audience. Be careful!
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): Unless you and your mate really are partners in work as well as at home, helping each other with work is going to create trouble. If you’re seeking new work, polish your resume over the weekend and get it out next week.
CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): Setbacks at work can get under your skin, triggering arguments with the boss. Don’t let passing annoyances get to you. Take it out on some rough or challenging fun. Anything from a game of rugby to a good intellectual stretch will shake off the tension.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): Recent inspirations and brilliant utterings may have you feeling invincible, but the gift of gab is passing. Wherever being crude and nasty, or brutally to the point can serve you, have at it. Otherwise modest reticence is best.
PISCES (February 19 – March 19): Dissatisfaction in love may get so bad that the only thing holding you together is the expense of splitting up. Problems that seem unsolvable now may find answers later. List the positives and the negatives; remember the good stuff when you talk.
