The Sun is harmonizing with Mars, pumping up energy all around. Venus offers some focus – a good, productive, and pleasurable challenge – for you to apply all that energy to.
ARIES (March 20 – April 19): If your career goals and political views are in conflict, talking it out with a friend – even arguing – will help. Adjusting your personal goals may be necessary; an older woman can help you.
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): Being responsible and in charge when you need to be can feel more challenging than fulfilling, but there will be a pay-off down the road. Money can be a heated topic, but it’s just a tool. Remember your essential values and ideals.
GEMINI (May 21 – June 20): There’s always more to sex. Being able to accept that as all right may be a little out of reach right now. Getting in touch with your own needs for physical expression and spiritual growth can help you make any necessary adjustments in erotic practice.
CANCER (June 21 – July 22): Some of your sexual needs aren’t being met, but that’s true for nearly everyone. Sharing some of your darkest secrets and fantasies with your partner – the scary ones you’d never confess – should help improve the situation.
LEO (July 23 – August 22): Issues with your partner (or about wanting one) require more work than talk, but voicing your hopes and ideals will help. Small adjustments – nothing radical – in work, health, or other daily routines can offer huge improvements.
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): Resist the urge to argue with authorities and bosses. Your ambitions will be better furthered if you concentrate on the tasks at hand, winning the enthusiastic support of all who will notice. Some creative innovation that’s judiciously and conservatively introduced will also help!
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): Arguments come easily now, and you should welcome the debates. Keep them respectful and gentle, but don’t be afraid of a little heat to fire up the learning experience. What you learn now can force you to re-evaluate “truths” you learned at home.
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): Your keen ear for subtext and hidden meanings will serve you, and you’ll be able to express yourself very well nonverbally. By choosing your words carefully and weighing what you hear, you’ll find verbal expression just as important.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): All your wonderfully grand philosophical ideals can be a distraction from details that you should attend to now. Your partner or a good friend can help. Remembering what really counts in life can help you focus.
CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): You’re looking gorgeous, darling. Don’t let that distract you from work at hand, which – dull as it may seem to some – actually helps you to glow. This is a good time to know what you’re worth, and demand what you’re due!
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): Being playful and assertive helps you to dazzle. Taking a little time out from all that dazzling to enjoy some intimate company – emotionally intimate, but not necessarily sexual – will make you even brighter when you return to the public eye.
PISCES (February 19 – March 19): Holing up at home is good for your soul, but then what? Use your retreat to consider your future and the world’s, and what you can do to improve both. Remember, you benefit most when you’re helping others.
