“Use your charm wisely, Aries!”
The Sun is aligned with Venus in Scorpio, turning up everyone’s seductive charm and susceptibility. Both planets are trine to Uranus, opening amazing possibilities. Cleverly used, this magnetism can lead to opportunities and insights that could change your life.
ARIES (March 20 – April 19): Your seductive charm is working far better than you expect. Use it sparingly and wisely; it could land you into situations you hadn’t gambled on. Secrets that come to light may include long-hidden talents.
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): Getting out into a new and different milieu – preferably someplace with a spiritual and/or political focus – and making new friends offers a chance to meet a wonderful new partner, or to revitalize an existing relationship.
GEMINI (May 21 – June 20): If looking sexy is part of your work, you’re bound to succeed. If it’s not, you may have to work extra hard to behave yourself and stay focused on the task at hand. Of course, this, too, is a sure route to success.
CANCER (June 21 – July 22): Playful efforts to tease out ideas can lead to profound discussions, perhaps even arguments. Keep it friendly and principled and you can learn – and teach – a lot more than you expected to. You’ll need a very open mind to take it all in!
LEO (July 23 – August 22): Fix an aphrodisiac supper for the one you desire. The setting counts more than menu, although some classic stand-bys like oysters will signal your intentions. Make sure your boudoir is as elegantly prepared as the table!
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): Risque limericks, well-honed epigrams, or other outre witticisms will shock others into taking notice of you. Your partner – or your favorite candidate for that position – will be properly impressed, and you will be happily, “improperly” rewarded.
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): Take care of finances now – next week would be disastrous! You’re more resourceful than usual now, making this the time not only to evaluate material assets, but to develop useful skills for doing so.
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): Your sexy charm is now at its height, opening doors for all kinds of fun and games. You’re irresistible, and not just sexually. Engage people at other levels. Be creatively flirtatious, and see what opportunities that generates for you.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): Carve out a special place in your home for meditation. It would seem that the point is to get grounded – but not quite. The space will open energy for you in a way that will be centering – freeing you from roots, not attaching you to them.
CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): Any time spent with friends will unlock secrets, either yours or theirs, and that will be necessary for social or political success. Have some secrets that you can reveal safely to protect those you want to keep hidden.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): When tempted to confront an authority figure, try instead to engage that person diplomatically and find ways to co-operate. More than you would imagine, your charm will get you ahead and open doors to resources.
PISCES (February 19 – March 19): Explore any new, exotic art or beauty. The more you can identify with it and feel it as a part of you, the more it – or he or she? – can show you parts of yourself you never knew existed.
