“Reconsider shared investments, Sagittarius!”

Mars opposing Jupiter can pump up your energy, but they are not happy in their signs (Cancer and Capricorn, respectively) and are likely to dither furiously. Uranus in Pisces offers inspiration that can help you find direction. Meditate and focus on your goal.

ARIES (March 20 – April 19): Hassles at home and opportunities at work, feeding each other, make you wonder where your loyalties should lie. Digging in and working on domestic problems will help you see more professional opportunities. Time alone meditating will help you focus and deal.

TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): With your birthday at hand, the years seem to be piling up fast and furious, but with age comes experience and power. Fast and furious may serve you well. Keep your ideals and goals in focus to avoid needless arguments and to win the necessary ones.

GEMINI (May 21 – June 20): Sexual desires are easily satisfied now, but at what cost to deeper emotional needs? How do you imagine your love life and relationships in 20 years? Discuss these questions with someone whose experience and authority you can trust.

CANCER (June 21 – July 22): Arguments with your partner should be less about “who” is right and more about “what” is right. Keep an eye to the long run, which is more important than any current tiff. Ceding a point or two can lead to terrific make-up sex.

LEO (July 23 – August 22): Your health should be good these days. Worrying about it will make real problems worse, and imaginary problems seem more real. Sex is especially good therapy, as is anything that strengthens your relationship and eases your soul.

VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): Tough times are challenging you, but you’re rising to the occasion and looking fabulous. Speak out on issues that concern you. Don’t be shy! Evil queens from cartoons can inspire you to be as evil a queen as you need to be.

LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): Demands from community or family may seem both a shelter and a diversion from hassles at work, but tending to your roots should help you toward success. You may need to rethink the context of your relationships. Colleagues offer surprisingly helpful suggestions.

SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): Being open to new ideas, especially if they challenge long-held notions, can help you work better with others and understand your place among your colleagues. A playful approach to tough questions can help. So will traditional wisdom in new contexts.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): You should be making money this year – but where your finances intersect with those of others, there may be trouble. Reconsider any shared investments and joint accounts. Confusion at home can be the first step toward clarity.

CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): Of course you’re right, but if you can’t figure out how to make your partner right, too, there won’t be any peace. Word games and poetry could provide keys to reconciliation. Logic is not your friend here.

AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): Emotional upsets can make you especially cranky. Taking time alone would do everyone a favor, especially yourself. Imagine an impulse purchase. What would it be? Consider the difference between your desires and your needs.

PISCES (February 19 – March 19): Rather than giving in to those primal urges, consider the benefits of delayed gratification. It’s basically an exercise in creative vision, which is your strongest talent. You’ll find inner reserves you didn’t realize existed.
