“Don’t argue, Leo – entertain!”
Mars is already a bit weakened and lacking focus in Libra, although normally that sign makes him a better team player. As he trines Neptune in Aquarius, hedonistic indulgences come easily, but directed, productive activity is harder. Yoga, martial arts, or other activities tied to balancing spirit will help.
ARIES (March 20 – April 19): Your partner wants to spend more time alone with you, but you’re feeling more openly social. There’s time for both; be considerate of your partner. If you’re single and looking, try a sporting event. Having some friends along could help the search.
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): Lately, you’ve been uncertain about what you want to be when you grow up. You can take some satisfaction that your current job – and especially your ability to work with others – will eventually help you find your way to the top.
GEMINI (May 21 – June 20): Try out new and different entertainments. Iranian movies? Dervish performances? Kinky experiments you haven’t gotten around to yet? Something with a spiritual twist will be most interesting. Be very open to new possibilities as they offer themselves.
CANCER (June 21 – July 22): Never mind the bedroom – take the fun to the kitchen! There you can imagine brilliant new uses for some of the utensils, and find great ingredients for fun. If you don’t have privacy there, pack a picnic basket!
LEO (July 23 – August 22): The more forcefully you express your points, the more illogical they seem to others. If you can argue effectively along emotional lines, using a dramatic style, your lack of logic may not matter. Better yet, don’t argue. Just entertain!
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): Watch out for nervous tension over any problem, especially money. Nothing will be solved now, but you can get a sense of how to be more effective working with others, which will help in the long run.
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): You’re unusually energetic and playful these days. Be cautious; know your own limits and those of your playmates. You’re sure to stumble over them anyway, so just be careful that nobody gets hurt and that necessary apologies are made!
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): Either as a long-term project or just for a few hours, make your bathroom into a place of elegant pleasure where you can enjoy a long, hot, relaxing soak. That’s always a healing “divertissement,” and now it’s an absolute necessity!
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): You have a sudden burst of energy for either social activity or politics; stick with the social. In politics you’ll only wreak confusion now. But at other occasions, your whimsical touch should prove a huge asset!
CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): You need reassurance about where you’re going in life and why. A little confusion is good if it opens you to deeper understanding. Talk with your boss – or a professional – about your goals and your purpose.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): You’re craving adventure, but what kind? Let it be an adventure in trust. Try to give up being a control queen long enough to let a friend lead you somewhere entirely new. That doesn’t necessarily mean sex, but don’t rule it out!
PISCES (February 19 – March 19): One fish is swimming toward mad lust, the other toward quiet retreat. Invite your sexiest friend(s) to an erotic retreat where you can alternate games of strip Twister with meditation, massage, and shared baths.
