“Economize, Taurus!”

Energy is running high – but what to do with it? Mars is in his own sign, Aries, pumping up the testosterone in all of us. With the Sun in Gemini, sextile to Mars, that heightened energy and drive are expressed easily, but have trouble finding direction.

ARIES (March 20 – April 19): Go, go, go! But where are you going? Think fast, make a plan, and stick to it! Sure, some discussion at first (but not too much) and adaptations will be needed, but don’t get lost in overthinking.

TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): You need to be actively involved in your finances. Resist shopaholic impulses, although a budgeted indulgence is reasonable. Cleaning your books, balancing accounts, and revising budgets are good. Analyzing spending habits and finding ways to economize are better!

GEMINI (May 21 – June 20): Have a fabulous time with friends. It’s your time to party! Just don’t let keeping up with each other become a competitive sport. You can build your political position, but when the current energy burst passes, can you sustain new duties?

CANCER (June 21 – July 22): Take the initiative, and stand up for yourself. Trust your hunches, and bold career moves will pay off. Friends behind the scenes will be very helpful, even when you don’t know that they’re there.

LEO (July 23 – August 22): Explore new ideas – the more foreign or unusual, the better! Discussions can get loud and passionate. Even fierce arguments offer the opportunity to learn from different viewpoints. Just remember: the real victory is not in beating the other guy, but in learning.

VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): You’re likely to shoot your shy, virginal image to hell. Be discreet in your sordid pleasures, just so you can say you tried. When confronted with rumors, neither deny nor admit anything. Lurid gossip could actually help your reputation.

LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): Arguments with your partner should be enjoyed. What’s fun to argue about? Politics? Movies? Who’s going to be on top tonight? Exploring new “divertissements,” whether intellectual or physical, can help fan the flames of love.

SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): It’s time to play work-fantasy games. Get out the steno pad, the courier’s uniform, or the French maid’s outfit. Ooh la la! Better yet, exercise with your “trainer,” and work out muscles that the Nautilus System doesn’t know about!

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): Take your partner – of life or just “du jour” – out for a romp. Get physical with one-on-one hoops, a hike, or a bike ride. Just have fun and work up a sweat. Then you can “really” have fun and work up a sweat!

CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): Bringing work home could be an effective approach right now. First, give a little thought to how that can enhance both your productivity and your home life.

AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): Your tongue is getting way ahead of your brain, delighting nearly all around you, but also stinging some egos. If you can’t be nice, you could still be very charming, with a little focus.

PISCES (February 19 – March 19): Set yourself a budget for any shopping, especially for family or home. Better yet, work on household finances and see where you can save money. A sidewalk sale will make more room than money. Don’t let that stop you!
