“Pay attention to dreams, Scorpio!”
This week Mercury enters Libra, stimulating conversation and parties, and it quickly lines up with Mars, stirring up passions – verbally, at least. The week could be all talk and no action. Any lingering issues and possible arguments are best broached now while minds are clear and leaning toward cooperation.
ARIES (March 20 – April 19): Discussions with your partner could point to the bedroom or the battleground. Actually, this is a good time for arguments to release energy and find some kind of resolution. Then you can ride that energy when you kiss and make up!
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): Try to stay focused on the task at hand, and remember that taking breaks and resting properly help you “work better, not harder.” Overdoing it can lead to strains and headaches. Are colleagues doing their share? You may want to discuss that!
GEMINI (May 21 – June 20): Your mad, playful impulses will work much more in your favor if you look for cohorts rather than targets. If you act solo, those you see as beneficiaries are likely to see themselves as victims.
CANCER (June 21 – July 22): Family arguments could be a good thing right now, providing a chance to air and perhaps even resolve long-standing issues. If you can’t take the heat, get into the kitchen and try some new recipes.
LEO (July 23 – August 22): Your mouth is suddenly energized, but how about your ears? What you really want is faster, easier contact with those around you. Listening better will help you get your own message across more easily.
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): The stars warn of arguments over money and of mad, shopoholic impulses. The latter seem an easy escape from the former, but you’re better off having those arguments now, to resolve any lingering problems.
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): Mars and Mercury lining up in your sign are making you unusually outspoken and energetic. Ride that energy! Do and say whatever you like. Anyone else should be warned to be considerate and polite, but you are always both of those.
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): Bursts of paranoia should be examined to see what the real problem is. Pay attention to dreams and long-buried feelings coming to the surface. Time out to discuss those problems with your partner or a confidante will be very helpful.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): This is “the” time to push forward toward any political or social goals you have. Involve yourself in campaigns or host whatever influential people you want to schmooze with. This energy is a short burst, so don’t base any long-term commitments on it!
CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): Arguments with the boss may work out in your favor, but keep it civil. At least this is a good time to clarify any existing problems, and to get clear about your own ambitions.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): You’re tending to be more outspoken than usual these days. Hold back and think ahead! With a little conscious effort you can focus that busy brain to help reconcile conflicts rather than to stir them up.
PISCES (February 19 – March 19): Your erotic wishes can all be fulfilled. The trick is to say what you want, simply and sweetly. Even the coarsest four-letter words can be made to sound poetic. You have the talent, if you can screw up the nerve.
