Make connections, Capricorn!
Sun-Jupiter aspects signal great opportunities, but now in a square they provoke overambition. With some shrewd evaluation and teamwork, everything you need is out there for you. Getting cocky and jumping too eagerly for everything you “want,” however, will lead to disappointment.
ARIES (March 20 – April 19): Teamwork is not the Ram’s strong suit, but you’d better hitch up and get with the team if you want to get ahead. All eyes are on you, and you will rise or fall spectacularly depending on your co-operative skills. (Whatever the argument is, your partner is right!)
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): It seems that at work you can do just about anything. Please try to stay reasonably within the job description! Be careful not to overexercise. You need a challenge, but don’t bite off more than you can chew.
GEMINI (May 21- June 20): You are an absolute sex deity right now! Play it conservative and genteel (business suits? Victorian fantasy?). Let your clever wit shine through, but choose carefully the trouble you let your mouth get into.
CANCER (June 21- July 22): Involvement in community activities can help you either shore up a relationship or find one. The danger is in getting too overcommitted to give enough attention to the one who matters most. Show enthusiasm in your spirit and restraint in your scheduling.
LEO (July 23 – August 22): Don’t be such a know-it-all at work. Better to sharpen your own skills, especially in communication. Catch up on correspondence. Start on a diet with slow and steady goals. Overambition sets you up for disappointment and failure.
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): You’re unusually playful now, but far too likely to lose bets, despite appearances of a sure thing. There are still great ways to play so that everyone’s a winner – even if you don’t come out on top!
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): Family and community connections can open up huge opportunities, probably though some partnership or collaboration. Be very careful not to overcommit. The important thing is to stay true to yourself always.
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): Pay attention to your dreams now. A dream journal can be very revealing. Apparently not related to that (or maybe it is…), this is an excellent time to improve relationships with siblings and neighbors.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): New social opportunities challenge your values and priorities. This is a mark of maturity, so embrace the challenge and be open to surprising new insights. Question no. 1: What long-range strategy best serves your core values?
CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): Make important connections at work, and schmooze up the boss or anyone else further up the ladder who might be helpful. Don’t be shy about your accomplishments, but don’t overpromote either. Find a simple, matter-of-fact middle ground.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): It’s a great year for you to be studying, traveling, or just exploring new things, but inner doubts complicate the journey. Meditation can help clear away those roadblocks, or try a heart-to-heart talk with a teacher or mentor.
PISCES (February 19 – March 19): Gauge your political aspirations carefully. Strong as your charisma is these days, you’re likely to overestimate your gifts of persuasion. You’re still a force to be reckoned with – as long as you don’t overreach.
