“Clean out the kitchen, Aries!”
Venus is in Pisces, enriching ideals of romance and inspiration. Saturn in Virgo, however, demands critical realism. Mars in Cancer suggests that you can unite the two constructively by fighting for what you really care about.
ARIES (March 20 – April 19): Clean out your kitchen and get rid of at least a few things that aren’t good for you. Some comfort foods are necessary, but whole grains can fit in that category as well as the sweet stuff!
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): Too many dreamy ideals can leave you paralyzed. Creative action in the real world can help you pick the most advantageous path out of the many. Talking it over with a sister – genetic or otherwise – will help you to energize and focus.
GEMINI (May 21 – June 20): Money is coming and going a bit too easily. Wanting to look good can aggravate the spending. Staying close to the discipline of earlier times – even earlier generations – will help you to save money and use it wisely.
CANCER (June 21 – July 22): Trying to bring diverse viewpoints together in harmony is likely to backfire. Agreeing to disagree – finding a critical, if minuscule, common ground without requiring too much unity – is ultimately more helpful. A new exercise program will improve your spirits as much as your bod.
LEO (July 23 – August 22): Erotic ideals and critical values are likely to clash. Meditation and exercise will help you restore harmony. If you’re not much for exercise, dancing – alone, with a partner, or in a group – will help you find reconciliation.
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): Elevating anyone at your own expense is never good, and it’s an especially poor way to handle a relationship. Idealizing your lover – rather than simply seeing the two of you as flawed, equal individuals together – is always a big mistake. Blowing off steam with friends will help restore balance.
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): Your eagerness to work is commendable, but the balance between multitasking and focusing on priorities can make a hash of it. Don’t be scared to ask the boss or an authoritative expert for help!
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): Don’t let fear of criticism inhibit your creative urges. Still, exercising some critical foresight can help you focus your magic into making something truly wonderful. Ancient and distant struggles can help inspire you.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): Home may be too tempting a retreat from hard work and responsibility. Traditional or old family ideals may be the goad you need to get cracking! A sense of accomplishment to make the folks at home proud can also help motivate you.
CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): Your very definite critical ideas are having some trouble getting through a gentle, eager-to-please mode of expression. The solution can be found in your desire to want what’s really best for someone else – which may not be what sounds nicest.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): Erotic frustrations shouldn’t provoke you to try to prove anything. Divert your attention to work and home for now, and sex will fall into its right place at the right time. Financial offers that look too good to be true probably are.
PISCES (February 19 – March 19): Just when you’re feeling utterly fabulous, your partner seems intent on bringing you down. The opposing view may be more realistic, but so what if it is? Rough, passionate play or some dark fantasy may help reconciliation.
