Accept direction, Capricorn!
Mercury is conjunct Venus in Cancer, promoting domestic charms and homespun wit. Both are quincunx Pluto, adding a challenge and a sexy edge. Mars in Aries opposing Jupiter in Libra lights up the urge to merge. Don’t promise anything beyond breakfast, but if you take it one day at a time, anything could happen!
ARIES (March 20 – April 19): Keep an open mind! Arguments at home – whether over chores or philosophy – open up new perspectives. Otherwise, you could be utterly selfish in your relationship or in the pursuit of one. Just remember that cooperation and generosity can serve “enlightened self-interest.”
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): In the right time and place, explore the joys of talking dirty. Sing out, Louise! Snafus in teamwork could give you something to curse about, but you need appropriate language and diplomatic skills.
GEMINI (May 21 – June 20): Discussions about money problems can get heated, but if you stay focused on the real issues and are adaptable, you can make progress. Solutions are down the road. The real fun this week is to be had in groups.
CANCER (June 21 – July 22): Look at how your control issues come up at work and think about how to cooperate better. When you have the opportunity to lead, you’ll find it best to keep a careful eye from a distance, allowing others to work in their own way.
LEO (July 23 – August 22): Keep a notebook by the bed. Your dreams – especially the disturbing ones – are potent sources of creativity. Not that you need encouragement, but this is an excellent time to practice your skills as a raconteur.
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): Erotic opportunities surround you, but at what cost to friendship? Invite some of your best friends over for dinner and open up discussion to politics and philosophy. The evening will prove very educational!
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): You know better than anyone how to profit by helping others, but now you get to improve those skills. A casual schmooze with the boss can lead to a challenge to your diplomatic skills. Some things really “don’t” need saying!
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): Philosophical disagreements are just that. Don’t take any of them personally. If challenging ideas come from far away and long ago, couched in literature, you’ll accept them much more easily.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): You can bring a certain grace to talking dirty – perhaps through rhyming, or just being real flirty. Get playful in the style of Ogden Nash, but with your unique risque panache – and you could end up hosting an orgiastic bash.
CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): Arguments only reveal your deeper insecurities, but they’re cheaper than therapy, and resolutions come easy once you connect with your real issues. Job stress is a creative force now in your favor. Accept direction gracefully, and act on it quickly!
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): Your love of a good debate is getting passionate. Do your chosen opponents know what they’re in for? Curb that tongue and bend your busy brain toward developing teamwork skills. That doesn’t necessarily mean running the team!
PISCES (February 19 – March 19): Any artistic efforts are sure to get noticed; at work, your creative labors may require some revision. This is no time to be a perfectionist – you can make the corrections later. Forget the stereotype of the shy little fish. Get bold and assertive. You are the catch of the day!
