Keep flirting, Aries!
Venus in Gemini is squaring Mars in Pisces, generating creative, erotic stress in desperate need of focus. Mercury in Taurus provides the key – slow down and think pragmatically!
ARIES (March 20 – April 19): Your efforts to flirt can open up secrets. You are the most impulsive of signs, but focus on your methods and motivations. Get a better sense of your own secrets without blurting them out – and keep flirting, just a little more thoughtfully.
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): Write down what you really value in life, both now and in the long run. With that clearly in mind, organize your finances. That will give you confidence, making you sexier – you should accrue interest in more ways than one!
GEMINI (May 21 – June 20): Venus in your sign is cranking up your charm, and it’s hard to hold back – but the boss would rather see you working! Meditation helps you find the proper balance. Stop, breathe, and focus inward – briefly and often.
CANCER (June 21 – July 22): Your brain is busily distracted – worries, daydreams? The distraction could be annoying or enjoyable. If you can’t focus on the important work directly in front of you, think about long-term goals and the steps you need to achieve them – one step at a time.
LEO (July 23 – August 22): This would be a good time for you to be particularly discreet about your sex life. Juicy tidbits you share with friends are likely to come back to you at work and could, for a while, compromise your professionalism.
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): Always knowing best isn’t what gets you into trouble; the problem is how you express what you know. Citing an authority – the more academic, foreign, or philosophical the better – will add weight to your suggestions.
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): You’re unusually outspoken and accident-prone now. It’s a good time to be cautious about sex, but some hot action will help you center, clear your head, and avoid trouble. Still, be careful – both in and out of bed!
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): Salome came to an ugly end, but only because she asked for too much. Dance as madly and freely as she did, and you’ll be the sexiest thing around. Choose your dancing partner wisely! The two of you could be together a long time.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): As usual, doing some housework will help alleviate domestic tensions. But now there’s a bonus: Cleaning up can uncover treasures, provoking interesting discussions and revelations. Make like an archaeologist and dig!
CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): It’s too easy for you to speak out of turn now, hurting feelings or revealing secrets. Express yourself by putting pen to paper – not by using a computer. The physical process of writing can save you from disaster and develop creative insight.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): Use your spending impulse to focus on getting something for the home. Take your time shopping and explore possibilities. Ultimately, shopping is about a lot more than getting a new “tchotchke” – real retail therapy is about what comes up in the process.
PISCES (February 19 – March 19): Trying to cover over your feelings for the sake of peace at home won’t work. Speak your mind! Think first about how to make it as fair and positive as you can, but keep it real.
