Don’t nag, Libra!
Sun in Aries is trine to Pluto in Sagittarius, boosting energy and focus – or obsession. Be careful to avoid the latter. Mars conjunct Neptune in Aquarius blurs our energies and tempts us to get ahead of ourselves. Meditation will help you focus.
ARIES (March 20 – April 19): Energetic, impulsive, headstrong, and assertive – that’s what you are at any time, but now all the more so! You’re up for interesting adventures or furious arguments. Try to avoid the latter, as they’re usually pointless and, especially now, could damage friendships.
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): Everybody has a secret. What’s yours? Don’t tell. Just thinking about your deepest, darkest secret will make you irresistibly sexy. Do not try this at work! A scandal is brewing there, and you or your boss will likely be involved.
GEMINI (May 21 – June 20): Your social and political skills are very sharp now, if only you can keep your mouth shut. Go to a poetry slam or call someone for phone sex to get the blabber out of your system – but when it counts, keep those lips tight!
CANCER (June 21 – July 22): Your hard work speaks for itself, but don’t be too modest. Take due pride and accept due credit. Though you may earn yourself a special night out, be careful of overindulgence. Getting too high, especially now, leads to danger.
LEO (July 23 – August 22): There are fireworks waiting to happen, but someone could get seriously burned. Just what is your understanding of “fidelity”? Make sure you and your partner – and any playmates (and their partners!) – are on the same page.
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): Your sexual impulsiveness, contrary to your reputation, is our little secret – until now, at least. Have your fun, but remember to be careful. You’re particularly susceptible to infections, inflammations, and sprains.
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): You may be expecting a little too much of others and coming off a bit strong. Take more initiative, and be careful not to nag! “Loosen up and enjoy” is good advice – up to a point. Too loose isn’t fun; it’s just sloppy.
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): It’s an optimal time to clean up financial matters – anything from balancing your checkbook on up. Even cleaning house and having a tag sale can prove lucrative, if you know what your castoffs are really worth.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): Your playful side is getting so emphatic that your invitations for fun may sound coercive. Be gentle and ready to backpedal a little. Communications in general are likely to be muddled, so be extra careful to be clear.
CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): Hide out at home and do whatever needs doing. Clean up archives; get rid of junk. If your house is already in perfect order, make yourself helpful to others in your community. Avoid financial dealings (even unnecessary shopping!) this week.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): You are especially persuasive now. The only problem is that you’re lacking your usual certainty and focus. Meditate on the ideals you want to promote, thinking carefully about them “before” you speak up.
PISCES (February 19 – March 19): Stay focused on what you’re worth to yourself and what you consider most important. If you can keep your own priorities clear, you’ll make great strides toward your goals. Exercise and mediation will help keep you sharp.
