Jupiter in Capricorn helps promotes constructive focus for your own advancement, while our new planet Eris wants to hold you back with the gang. Mercury and Venus are aligned with Uranus, triggering mad explosions of wit and creativity, and offering an inspired resolution.
ARIES (March 20 – April 19): Those wild dreams you’ve been having get even crazier, but can help guide your career and repair friendships. Any inspiration, especially while meditating, may help. Take the time and effort to analyze and interpret the craziest images that blow into your head.
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): Left to your own imagination, you may question your long-held beliefs and your place in the world. Listen to your friends for guidance. The crazier their suggestions, the more you should at least listen. Professional opinions will probably back them up.
GEMINI (May 21 – June 20): Your wildest erotic dreams can come true, but probably not if you want to keep them a secret. Giving them some publicity could prove to your favor, depending on how utterly shameless you’re willing to be.
CANCER (June 21 – July 22): The old advice, “Dress for the job you want, not the job you have,” refers to your sense of self as much as to your wardrobe. If you sense attitude from your peers, you may indeed be overdoing it. Hear them out.
LEO (July 23 – August 22): Your powerful loyalty influences the ways you think, but that could sometimes lead to dysfunctional thinking. “What’s right” is ultimately more important than “who’s right.” Sometimes what a friend needs most is a different opinion.
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): Your sexual and gender identities are more than invitations to play – not that you need to refuse the many invitations you should be getting now. Balance your fun with community work and creative cooperative efforts.
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): Family connections and expectations can cause discomfort in defining your partnership. All relationships take work and frequent adjustment. It needn’t be so serious. Get your baby and your folks together for some entertainment or games.
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): Your ambition and hunger for status among your peers can make you sloppy. Back to basics, babe! What do you really want to accomplish? Time out to play and have fun with your homies will help re-establish perspective.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): Money should be coming in easily, but holding onto it is the problem. When facing household expenses, remember the economies practiced by your parents or grandparents in leaner times. Joining clubs can get expensive. Think twice before paying dues.
CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): Family and ethnic background could be sources of great strength, if only because they challenged you severely. You probably have more positives in your heritage than you know. Talking with siblings or other “sisters” can help you see things in a better light.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): An occasional sense of alienation can help you in the long run, affirming your unique identity. Trying to buy your way into belonging is counterproductive, but being a personal asset to a cause you believe in is always good for the soul.
PISCES (February 19 – March 19): Your social ambitions can clash with your personal values. Who are those people you’re aspiring to be with? Why do they matter? And what does that say about you? You gotta have friends, but your own heart and your deepest personal faith will guide you better.
