“Put work second, Taurus!”
Mercury in Scorpio and Venus in Libra offer a seductive mix of charm and insight. While they aspect Saturn in Virgo, you should work with those elements to develop social and erotic skills. Out of that effort will come new awareness of yourself and your interactions with others.
ARIES (March 20 – April 19): Let your partner teach you some new sexual techniques, or maybe your baby would like you to study up and play teacher. Some friends will have ideas worth trying out. Those novelties may challenge you, but can help your relationships.
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): Your health comes first, so put work second, at least for now; love and pleasure will fall happily into place. Your teamwork skills and creativity will earn the notice of your superiors, and perhaps a promotion.
GEMINI (May 21 – June 20): With a creative touch to housekeeping, or reviewing old family resentments, you’ll be amazed at what you can let go of – if you’re willing. Focus on new ideas and approaches to further the cleansing.
CANCER (June 21 – July 22): Your wit is a bit sharper than usual. Someone might get hurt. If you can’t say anything nice, you can always dish homophobic and racist demagogues. The best place to stage a creative seduction this week is in your home, sweet home!
LEO (July 23 – August 22): A sister, genetic or otherwise, who is offering domestic or financial suggestions should be listened to, and probably heeded. Your partner will also have domestic advice that you may not like, but you can at least pay close attention!
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): Feeling old and responsible could work to your advantage, especially in organizing financial details. Make sure to budget money for health, hygiene, and exercise! And keep that responsible attitude when you open your mouth at work. Snarky remarks can cause big trouble.
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): Worries about money are exaggerated, but can motivate focus for positive financial discipline. Your acumen and instincts for saving are especially sharp. Creative use of resources will make economy more fun and efficient.
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): Be careful not to let secrets slip, especially in moments of comfort and passion – although it could be good to confide in someone you really trust! Focus your insight and get to the bottom of personal and family mysteries.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): Pay close attention to gossip, but don’t repeat it. Knowing what people are saying can help you get ahead, but figuring out how the truth is different from that will help you be a better – and saner – friend.
CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): Ancient teachings offer helpful clues to office (and other) politics. If you don’t have time to brush up on Sun Tzu or Machiavelli, at least take a calm, conservative approach. As new resources open up, seek a wise woman’s counsel.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): Do your best to think like a professional dominatrix. The further that is from your reality, the better it will work for you. A take-charge attitude with a playful subtext will open doors – not just in life, but in your own head.
PISCES (February 19 – March 19): The stronger you hold to your standards of your ideal partnership, the more erotic adventures will beckon. How and where you actually draw the line may not bring true love, but it will bring great insight.
