“Set an example, Aquarius!”

Jupiter is squaring Saturn, offering challenges that are keys to opportunity. Hard work should pay off big. The Sun and Mars are in Libra, aspecting both planets, so put energy into cooperation to make the most of it!

ARIES (March 20 – April 19): Taking your playfulness – and especially your sexuality -more seriously could lead to higher standards and skillfulness. If things seem a bit dry, let your partner take the lead. Of course, you will rise to the occasion – and then some!

TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): Give in to your partner on a domestic question. Whoever makes the decision should take the responsibility and do the work. You could get off easy, giving you the chance to focus on something you’d rather be doing.

GEMINI (May 21 – June 20): Say what you must, even if it requires tremendous tact. Holding back will prove more dangerous. Taking time out to play with ideas and words will help you craft a statement more diplomatically.

CANCER (June 21 – July 22): This is not your week for casinos or lotteries, but creativity with special finds at secondhand stores could make you a big winner! It may take a little work, but someone else’s junk can be a fabulous treasure to dress up your home.

LEO (July 23 – August 22): Taking yourself too seriously? Feeling vulnerable? Digging up some old family dirt may be necessary before you can wash it all away. An argument with a sibling could open up some of that stuff, proving helpful in the long run.

VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): Arguments over money are really about something else, but draw out the money fight just to see what’s lying beneath it. Anything could be revealed, therapeutic or otherwise. Be careful!

LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): Partying is not a competitive sport – you can’t win the gold, although you could spend plenty of it. If you budget your fun carefully, you might see that your true friends value your generosity, but don’t require it.

SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): Trusting your instincts – even if they do seem a bit paranoid – will help you make great strides in your career. If an argument reveals some deep, dark scandal, don’t worry. The revelation will turn out to be a blessing in disguise.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): Good-natured debates may have trouble staying good-natured. Your gut should tell you when your intellect is losing touch with reality and with your core values. Trust that instinct, and be open to changing your mind.

CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): Work on your sexual ideals – but it’s up to you whether that means a personal connection with someone, deeper erotic self-awareness, or political work in the area of feminism or queer liberation. Someone you consider a hero or just a good friend will help.

AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): Interference at work demands some new ideas. Don’t be scared to argue a little – but just a little – and remember, you learn more by listening than talking. Your ideas might elicit an even better response. You want cooperation? Set an example!

PISCES (February 19 – March 19): Being sexually assertive can be good for your health and help keep you out of trouble. Be ready for adventure or to try something new; let your partner suggest something entirely different, and use that as a springboard for your own inspiration.
