“Sell your clutter, Cancer!”

Even sweetness and light can be excessive. With the Sun and Venus in a long, difficult aspect – and in each other’s signs – overdoing the good stuff comes way too easily and can leave us feeling sunburned and saccharine.

ARIES (March 20 – April 19): Does your partner want to take the lead or to follow? Baby does want to play, but may be a pushy bottom. (There’s another kind?) Be very clear about who’s really running the show, especially if it’s not stated.

TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): Be very careful of your diet, especially your sugar intake. If there’s any diabetes in your family, get yourself checked out. Resist the urge to decorate, or look at what’s behind it. Is it a distraction from more figurative “housecleaning”?

GEMINI (May 21 – June 20): Write, paint, compose your heart out. It’s all dreck, even if your friends tell you it’s fabulous. They’re just being nice. Later on, when your critical faculties return, something good could come out of all the fertilizer you’re excreting now.

CANCER (June 21 – July 22): Sure, you want your home to be utterly gorgeous. Risking the rent or mortgage by spending a wad on decoration is a bit counterproductive. Get creative with what you have, or raise money selling off old clutter.

LEO (July 23 – August 22): You could easily be too charming, tempting others to doubt your sincerity. Just be your natural, sweet self. That’s already a lot for many people to handle! Cultivate modesty, and remember: The flower charms the bee without effort.

VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): Being helpful with your insight and suggestions seems a charming idea to you, but others may find it meddlesome. Ask if you can offer help before you actually do. Better yet, put yourself in their shoes, and invite critical support.

LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): Your political talents are already working overtime for you. It would be much too easy to overplay your hand. Sit back, pay attention, and move lightly. Before you offer anything, let them want it!

SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): Your instincts are better than good for making connections with superiors at work or getting on the right side of any authority figure. In fact, you may be a bit overenthusiastic and pushy. Where’s that discreet, subtle Scorpion we love so well?

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): Your friends know how outspoken you are, and how you love to argue – excuse me – “exchange new ideas.” Your current enthusiasm will charm some people and scare others off. You may want to be careful about whom you push into either category.

CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): You are now exuding pure sexuality. Horny, jaded, or anywhere in between, you are radiating sex. At work, that can cause trouble. Do your best to sublimate that energy and/or enjoy it in the appropriate time and place.

AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): You want adventure, but not solo. You and your partner want different things, but are too eager to appease each other, and that satisfies nobody. Find a common ground where you can both be a little selfish and have a great time.

PISCES (February 19 – March 19): You don’t need to show off or work on your erotic expertise – but why pass up the fun? Finding eager partners is not a problem. Limiting yourself to an appropriate partner may be!
