Keep a journal, Scorpio!
Three weeks ago, Venus was square Jupiter and trine Uranus; now the Sun is in the same position. Try to imagine Fidel Castro imitating Isadora Duncan, and you’ll get the general picture. Where you experienced charming stimulation three weeks ago, you’re now likely to find egoistic assertion. Channel that energy constructively, if you can!
ARIES (March 20 – April 19): Just as Louis XIV declared, “L’etat, c’est moi,” so may you be overidentifying as the avatar of your community’s concerns. Put your ego aside and be strong enough to accept criticism as a key to real growth.
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): Teamwork has been a big issue lately. All your recent efforts do not make you enough of an expert to tell others what to do. Better to use your charm to elicit advice from your colleagues.
GEMINI (May 21 – June 20): Stay focused on what’s important in the long run, and on strategies for the future. That focus should help you curb your playful, provocative streak, which is usually great fun, but is sure to get you into big trouble now.
CANCER (June 21 – July 22): You can be Queen of the F***ing Universe at your birthday party, but otherwise your self-absorption ain’t pretty. Affect the humble grace and charm of an immigrant or a profoundly religious grandmother. If neither of your grannies fits the bill, make one up.
LEO (July 23 – August 22): Stop, think, and breathe. People ignore your demands for attention, so tune in to quiet, self-contained intensity. Meditate and focus on what you want to say; speak with your beautifully dramatic eyes and save your mouth for more intimate expressions.
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): Try not to obsess about money. Focus instead on what values and resources you can offer others. If you have any doubts in those departments, any sort of teamwork or volunteer effort will bring out your talents.
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): Your instincts for teamwork are sure to get you ahead. The trick is to make others look good, which you usually do well. You’re too eager for recognition now. The more you share the credit, the more you’ll achieve in the long run.
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): Keep a dream journal handy. Meditate. Those deeper thoughts, images, and memories all provide a wealth of material to open up new artistic and philosophical directions. And a journal makes the darker, scarier stuff easier to handle, too!
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): The stars are boosting your sexual confidence – as if you needed any more! That charisma can be enjoyed at a purely erotic level, or it can be sublimated into community work. They’re not mutually exclusive – do some good, and you can get done good!
CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): Opportunities for promotion can get you in over your head. Trust in your improvisational skills and you should be able to talk your way out of any situation; exploit that ability now while you can.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): Arguments can get expensive or lead you to fundamental questions of philosophical values. Save some money and re-examine your dogmas. Budgeting and exercise help focus your mind in those directions.
PISCES (February 19 – March 19): Remember three weeks ago when you were irresistible? Well, now you’re indomitable – unless you “want” to be a kinky bottom! Whatever – or whomever – you want, go get ’em, tigerfish!
