Mercury in Aquarius is aspecting Uranus in Pisces, creating weird little short circuits in everyone’s brains. This can lead to powerful intuitive flashes, or daring leaps of faith. Still, look before you leap!

ARIES (March 20 – April 19): ESP isn’t usually your strong suit, but your intuition is really sharp now, even spooky in its precocious prescience! If any insights or predictions come to mind now, pay special heed. If your flashes seem too weird, don’t just dismiss them; seek corroboration.

TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): Wherever you imagine you’ll be 10 or 20 years in the future, you’re probably spot on – but the future is still yours to create. Look at what you need to do now to maximize that potential.

GEMINI (May 21 – June 20): Of course, you’re brilliant, darling, but probably not as brilliant as you think. Slow down a tad before you speak up. Yes, your inspiration needs to be heard by folks in charge, but think about the phrasing, and approach them as friends.

CANCER (June 21 – July 22): We all have some conflicts between sexual ideals and practice. You are now especially attuned to those conflicts in yourself and others. Never mind the others, unless they really ask for your insight. Focusing on your own issues is much more healing.

LEO (July 23 – August 22): Sexual experimentation will open insights into your relationship, whether existing or hypothetical. Take the time and effort to talk, explore new ideas, and try things out, erotic or otherwise. And take your partner’s lead!

VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): The more criticism you offer, the more you’ll get in return. Sure, you think that sounds swell, but not everyone shares your enthusiasm. You could just ask for supportive advice. You’ll get plenty, and some of it could really help.

LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): You have lots of brilliant ideas about how to improve your workplace. Of those many ideas, a few are truly brilliant. Discuss them tentatively with colleagues before getting too enthusiastic about them. You can hurt yourself over-exercising. Easy does it!

SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): You need to make some changes around the house. Get creative. Members of your family – genetic or chosen – will provide some inspiration, even if they wouldn’t recognize their ideas after you’ve used them as a springboard.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): Are family secrets popping out “at” you or “from” you? Be careful what you say and to whom, and keep your ears wide open. You have some brilliant ideas about community politics, but they may need a little development.

CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): Silly little arguments seem to come out of nowhere, but they highlight a need to reconsider some basic questions about your personal values. What is really important to you? How do you express those ideas? Keep your mind open and a good friend nearby.

AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): Yours is the sign of self-reinvention. It can be a costly exercise at times. Watch your budget, and try to be more creative with ideas and attitude. Falling back on new clothes and toys is a duller approach. You can do better!

PISCES (February 19 – March 19): You need a break from the world, and vice versa. Some nagging inner voice is making you cranky and difficult. A retreat will open creative opportunities. If you can’t get away, at least take time out to meditate.
