See foreign films, Leo!

Saturn is quincunx to Pluto for a month, which presents irritating challenges to making deep adjustments. Mercury is briefly aspecting both, offering ideas and messages on how to use those challenges. It’s a great time for research projects, especially in history, genealogy, and archaeology.
ARIES (March 20 – April 19): Normally, problems at home should be solved there, but solutions are now coming from as far away as possible. Find a foreign and/or philosophical fount of wisdom to offer new insights.
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): Words lie heavily on your tongue – but what really needs saying? Take some time out for meditation or another introspective focus. That will just make you sexier, so take time to play too – and then who needs “words” on your tongue?
GEMINI (May 21 – June 20): Loans to or from friends will only make trouble later. Get by on what you have and let others do the same! You’re especially forceful and persuasive now, so you shouldn’t have trouble sticking to your guns – and that will earn you great respect.
CANCER (June 21 – July 22): Working too hard could make the boss suspicious that you’re after his or her job. The two of you are due for a talk about your duties and about how to work more effectively. Relax effectively, too! Stress from overwork can be dangerous.
LEO (July 23 – August 22): You’re getting into arguments too easily. Instead, try to confront what’s really bothering you. Pick from a list of foreign films – for entertainment, yes, but also for a clue to what is really working your nerves.
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): Power struggles are more easily won on your home turf. Getting all involved in your work space or usual hang-out is OK, but nothing wins them over like a home-cooked meal – or at least coffee and treats at your place.
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): Asserting your authority in any matter will only create more problems than it solves. Simply and concisely spelling out the facts of the matter at hand will demonstrate your mastery of the situation. Remember, “what’s” right is more important than “who’s” right.
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): Domestic arguments largely boil down to problems around work and money. Cut through the emotional drama and get to practical issues. The real trick is to respect everyone’s emotions in the process.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): Ever-lucky Saj! While Saturn is giving everyone else headaches, he’s making you the queen (OK, Butch – or the king!) of leather and fetishes. Just don’t be too assertive about it. Your natural confidence is quite enough.
CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): Relationships feel especially problematic now. Working it out together is ideal, but a time-out may be in order. Whether family traditions are a source of the problem or offer wise insight, digging around your roots will help.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): If something is bothering your tummy, it’s likely to be from the weight of something you need to get off your chest. Even if there are repercussions, difficult adjustments are better than the status quo. Sing out, Louise!
PISCES (February 19 – March 19): Your profound creativity is blocked now. Diverting your attention to work, especially on money matters, will help. Balancing your checkbook or reviewing the household budget is fine, but doing similar tasks at work is better.
