Don’t be shy, Taurus!
In her 29.5-year orbit, Saturn moves from Cancer to Leo this week. Emotional issues and territorial struggles will lighten up, but egos will become frail and defensively assertive. If you can remember personal struggles from either 1975-1978 or 1946-1949, those will offer clues to struggles on the horizon.
ARIES (March 20 – April 19): Your hunger for adventure erupts with a vengeance, with volcanic consequences at home. Start practicing discipline. Even though you don’t want to hear it right now, focusing those playful urges will serve you well in the long run.
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): Open up; express your most secret and erotic desires. (Of course, there’s a time and a place for everything!) You will stir up some challenges, but that’s how you get what you want. Don’t be shy!
GEMINI (May 21 – June 20): Social activity now stirs up questions about your values and priorities. If “thinking too much” spoils your fun in the short run, it will push you to more satisfying and meaningful friendships down the road.
CANCER (June 21 – July 22): Your self-mage may be suffering right now, but chalk that up to passing malaise. To shore up your ego, throw yourself into your work. Your efforts or your insecurity are sure to be noticed, so roll up your sleeves and dig in!
LEO (July 23 – August 22): Could it be that you’re a little “too” assertively playful? “Vous???” Yeah, “vous!” Your fertile imagination is a great place to play quietly and out of the way. Not your favorite mode or place – but trust “moi,” it will prove enriching.
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): You’re the zodiac’s secret sexpot – you of the golden tush! This week the secret is out. Is your fun distracting you from domestic duties, or are your housemates just jealous? Duty before pleasure, darling! There’s time for both.
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): Try to avoid courts of law and other situations where you may be judged – and if you can’t do that, try to be quiet, or at least calm. Your insistence on what you see as fair balance will tempt those judges to slap you in the fulcrum!
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): Foreign cuisines should assuage, if not satisfy, your current urge for exotic adventure. Buckle down and focus on the tasks that are staring you in the face. New ideas are probably more distracting than helpful.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): You are now both especially sexy and especially playful. Alas, you find yourself in a lot of situations where being sexy is really not appropriate. Restraint was never one of your stronger virtues. Now is a good time to practice.
CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): Problems with your partner now raise ghosts from your childhood – perhaps fears of becoming or marrying a clone of one of your parents. Focus on the good qualities being echoed, but remember also the many differences!
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): Meddling or being helpful? Just to be safe, put your energies into volunteering for a larger social event where your energies will be a lot more appreciated! Also, be careful. You’re especially accident-prone this week!
PISCES (February 19 – March 19): Try to focus on your work. Value input and suggestions from your boss or other authorities in your field. A creative edge can always be helpful, but you could easily get yourself into trouble by overdoing it.
