Don’t waste money, Gemini!
Mars square Saturn is never pretty. Worse yet, Mars is not at his best in Libra, nor is Saturn very happy in Cancer. Look out for turf battles and rigid attitudes.
ARIES (March 20 – April 19): Domestic squabbles are nearly inevitable now. Lingering issues should be handled in a mature, serious fashion. Some rough play could help relieve stress, but if you’re not experienced with kink, agree on a safeword and make limits very clear.
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): Misunderstandings at work feed resentments and make for harder work as well as a rougher workplace. Communication is the key to cooperation. If you can read and follow memos while your nose is pressed to the grindstone, you’ll get through.
GEMINI (May 21 – June 20): Resist impulses to invest right now, don’t waste money on lottery tickets, and budget carefully if you must indulge in “retail therapy.” Dancing, team sports, or anything else that gets you sweating while in good company will prove valuable.
CANCER (June 21 – July 22): Even the slightest problem at home can have a huge emotional impact. Too sensitive? That’s part of it, but just part. Cooperative housework can help – but it’s the cooperation that’s more important than the actual housework.
LEO (July 23 – August 22): You’re a natural charmer, but now you have an odd need to charm above and beyond the usual, revealing inner stresses deep beneath your surface. A massage and introspective chats will help to release those stresses.
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): Are your friends carrying their weight, or do you get stuck too often with the tab? Social responsibilities can burn a hole in your wallet. Charitable donations may need prioritizing and review. Let moochy friends go dutch!
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): Be professional and assertive, but cooperative – and for heaven’s sake, don’t take yourself too seriously. If you maintain a careful balance, you can be monarch of all you survey. If you slip, you may win a title, but you’ll surely lose respect.
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): Comfort may be found in ancient spiritual teachings. The “Malus Maleficarum” does not count! Confront religious conflicts from your own childhood, or get some perspective on the rites and teachings of something very different.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): The stars recommend dungeon parties now, but if B & D is not your cup of tea, you may find yourself in a political confrontation of medieval proportions. Then you’ll wish you had the manacles and ball gag!
CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): Who’s the boss? Teamwork is very important now, but be very careful about hierarchical structure. If you respect everybody’s positions and finesse your way through the minefield of office politics, you’ll go very far in the long run.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): Resist all temptation to argue – and temptation will be fierce. You can’t win arguments right now, and you can learn lots if you just shush and listen. Questions are good. You can even ask some very pointed questions – just don’t argue.
PISCES (February 19 – March 19): It’s an ideal time to explore some of the kinkier and rougher sides of sex play. Tell your partner or a well-chosen friend what you really want to try out. Yes, it’s good to be careful, but don’t be shy!
