Review your goals, Libra!

Venus and Mercury in Leo are sextile to Jupiter in Libra, making everyone as cheery and effervescent as a Jerry Herman musical. Uranus in Pisces is quincunx all three, making what astrologers call a “Yod” pattern (or the overly dramatic “Finger of God”) and throwing it all into chaos – as a “Finger of God” pointing up Uranus would do!
ARIES (March 20 – April 19): Be careful with your flirtations. What seems like playful banter opens up some dangerous undercurrents. You could meet the true love of your dreams, or find yourself in bed with an awful nightmare.
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): Take a few festive home-baked treats to work, and your co-workers will all love you. Well… almost all. Take some fruit and crudites for the dieters, so they can’t get resentful. Well… not overtly, anyway.
GEMINI (May 21 – June 20): That playful mouth of yours is going to get you into a lot of trouble and earn you a wicked reputation. Thank heaven there are venues where that’s a “good” thing! Just be very careful to be on your best behavior at work.
CANCER (June 21 – July 22): Reconsider the concept of “family fun,” although first you may have to reconsider the concept of “family.” Be careful there. You’re in a generous mood, and being too expansive invites some odd challenges.
LEO (July 23 – August 22): You and your mouth are so provocative these days! Fortunately, you can handle any trouble, and right now your mouth can handle plenty – verbally or otherwise. Still, save yourself some trouble and pick your provocations carefully.
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): Do something involving the arts, preferably theater. Volunteer work will bring you great wealth, even if it’s “only” of the spiritual sort. It will also have a catalytic effect on your relationship or your search for one.
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): Express, explore, and review your personal goals freely. Realistic efforts toward attaining them need revision, and this is more a time for ideas than for practical application. Stressing out makes it worse, and drugs can be particularly dangerous. Acupuncture is especially helpful now.
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): Skeletons in your closet could prove to be illustrious, and therefore not detrimental to your reputation. Creativity and humor will get you through rough spots. Be ready to improvise and keep smiling – or better yet, laugh out loud.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): Novel notions and social opportunities can be a refuge from trouble at home and may offer solutions – but not without stirring up those domestic problems. A brief summer storm can clear the air. Be fearless but considerate.
CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): Your wit is subtle and often underestimated. It will erupt now in surprising ways, perhaps backfiring on you. Trying to remain silent will only invite greater trouble. Think ahead – quickly, but carefully – before speaking!
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): You’ll be riding financial upsets for a few additional years. But inspiration, likely from a religious source, and suggestions from your partner or a close associate offer some clues for getting through this phase.
PISCES (February 19 – March 19): Flirtations at work can easily get way out of hand. If you want to practice new erotic techniques, this is the time – but that ain’t the place! Someone you exercise with or you see at the union hall is a better bet.
