“Keep it gentle, Leo!”

Mercury and Venus are lining up in Pisces, bringing out mystical, magical dreams, delicious flights of fancy, spiritual insights, and artistic inspirations. Logic takes a back seat to aesthetics and imagination. Chats with your friends, acts of charity, and meditation will crank up the magic.

ARIES (March 20 – April 19): Sweet dreams! Your best times in bed may be while you’re unconscious. Keep a notebook handy to write down your dreams before they fade out of memory. They could provide inspiration and insight to get you through the day.

TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): Take time out to enjoy your friends – and more to the point, let them enjoy you. You are unusually sparkling and playful now. Planning for the future now may be a bit optimistic. Enjoy your inspirations, but make real plans practical.

GEMINI (May 21 – June 20): Work out any lingering problems with authority figures. Promote yourself and schmooze with anyone who can help you toward success, but be real! It’s not brownnosing if it’s sincere; and if it’s insincere, everyone will know.

CANCER (June 21 – July 22): You are more than ready to entertain new ideas, but new impressions and aesthetics are probably better. Your artistic appreciation and sensitivity are now much stronger than your logic. Learn a song in a language you don’t know.

LEO (July 23 – August 22): The line between flirtation and seduction can be easy to miss. You can hardly stay on the innocent side of it, despite your best efforts – you really can’t help but be seductive, so play it down and keep it gentle.

VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): Enjoying art, music, or poetry with your partner can open up grand new possibilities for both of you. No partner? If you can’t find one now – at least for just now – you’re not trying!

LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): Little infections going around seem especially aimed at you, so be very careful! After-work parties can be great for morale, and hosting them will boost your popularity. Luncheons, however, can get easily, boozily out of hand.

SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): Get out the laptop, the notebook, the paints, or the chisel, and materialize your wildest fantasies. Whatever your medium, your creative juices are gushing – the more “far out,” the better. You can revise later, but don’t miss this opportunity!

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): Burrowing in at home with family -genetic or chosen – is indeed your best option. Alone or with your tribe, some home-decorating, scrap-booking, or genealogical research will offer fun revelations. If you get busy in the kitchen, go easy on the sherry!

CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): You are suddenly prone to light flirtations, lyric poetry, and charming letters. Efforts at logical explanations can give way to odd fancies, so appeal to emotions and art; try to express yourself more though impressions and allegory.

AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): Dreams of wealth and popularity could come true, but today’s dreams will need to be backed up by tomorrow’s work. Some of those notions could come to fruition, so let your imagination soar. Practical steps will come later.

PISCES (February 19 – March 19): You are too sweet and charming for words. If you’re struggling to look butch, that could be a problem. Otherwise, enjoy the magic that you are radiating. As you let others share in it, the magic will magnify, benefiting all – most of all, yourself.
