Find creative projects, Taurus!

Venus just entered Libra, her home sign, so she should radiate sweetness and charm upon us all. But, no… She’s instantly sextile to Saturn in Leo, so we can strive to be fabulous, but striving it will take! Any Saturn-Venus aspect makes maturity more attractive, so a word to all you hot daddies and sexy mommas: Don’t hide that gorgeous gray!

ARIES (March 20 – April 19): Whatever you hate about your home, you can at least do something about it. Why feel trapped when you can feel proud? Of course, it will take some work, but that will result in greater pride when it’s done.

TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): Nagging voices in your head – if from nowhere else – seem determined to spoil your fun, reminding you there’s work to do. There’s always work to do. Find creative projects that are both constructive and entertaining.

GEMINI (May 21 – June 20): Pretty up your home, but stick to a budget. If you don’t watch all those decorating shows that offer economical tips, get a friend who does to offer advice. Female relatives can also be helpful – but at what price?

CANCER (June 21 – July 22): Times have been hard, dear. A local art show may trigger some supportive insight on the trials you’ve been enduring, as could conversation with a femme girlfriend of any gender.

LEO (July 23 – August 22): Shopping can lift your spirits, but the boost is likely to be only temporary. Make sure you can return anything you buy. A wise elder woman (or queen) can be very helpful as you sort out priorities.

VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): You’re suddenly extra pretty and charming. You can use that boost to climb any social or political ladders you care to ascend. Earn the support of old drag queens or other mature, theatrical friends, and the rest will be easy.

LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): Re-organize your workspace, for aesthetics as well as for efficiency. Slip off for a discreet schmooze with someone who can help you up the ladder of success. If you can, take some time off to charge your batteries.

SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): Diplomatic efforts will challenge your restraint, but will prove worthwhile – if you can hold your tongue! When that gets difficult, focus on what’s really bothering you. You’ll learn a lot about politics and yourself.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): Ladylike grace – your own or that of a mentor or boss – will help you stay above the fray of office politics. An attitude of firm but calm command (think of a high-class dominatrix) will also do wonders for your sex life!

CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): Take your partner or an older friend to a gallery or show, preferably something very traditional, from a faraway time or place. If nothing fits the bill, rent a copy of a classic foreign film like “Enfants du Paradis” or “La Strada.”

AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): Now is an excellent time to brush up on sexual techniques and develop new skills, especially if you want to experiment with BDSM games. A little flirtatious charm, toned down to appropriate levels, can be very helpful at work.

PISCES (February 19 – March 19): Let your partner (whether a partner for life or simply “du jour”) coax you out of your shell of hard work. If you really don’t want to spend time at something too frivolous, a compromise may be in order.
