Develop new ideas, Virgo!
This will be a horny, energetic, sensual week, but not without effort. The Sun is sextile to Pluto, boosting erotic drive and other compulsions. Keep it clean and you could make cooperative efforts more efficient. Both planets are quincunx Mars in Taurus, so practical (or sensual) applications of that energy will take adjustment. Stubbornness could mess it all up. Be fierce, but flexible!
ARIES (March 20 – April 19): Arguments come too, too easily, even more than usual. And you’re probably wrong! Sorry about that. The way to be right is to keep an open mind and always be willing to reassess your basic assumptions.
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): Hello, Nurse! Neat, hygienic, and efficient suddenly looks sexy on you. Be adventurous and let your partner help you pick the right attitude. Think “foreign” and “service.” French maid? Turkish masseur? Use your imagination!
GEMINI (May 21 – June 20): Your creative teamwork will run up against stumbling blocks you’ve been ignoring. Give or get a massage to help unlock the problem. An irritating insight from your mate or colleague will prove helpful.
CANCER (June 21 – July 22): Doing good in your community will lead you into a political conflict, but if you listen carefully and are flexible, you can probably help resolve it. Look for a new perspective; familiar answers offer a key, but not the solution itself.
LEO (July 23 – August 22): Everyone else thinks you’re perfectly adorable, but using your especially radiant charms on authority figures now will just make your nose look brown or put it way out of joint. Keep long-range goals in mind; charm is secondary!
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): What’s really important in life? Lessons learned from your family and reinforced by experience suddenly fall short. A pragmatic philosophy (Karl Marx? Ayn Rand?) offers you the challenge you need to develop new ideas.
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): Your velvet glove normally conceals an iron fist, but the steel is visible now, even if you are as smooth and sweet as ever. The less scared you are to show your real strength, the less likely you’ll need to use it.
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): Your partner is not a villain, but a catalyst for your internal crisis. Both of you need to discuss money, priorities, and values, but you need to alternate those discussions with some downtime to think on your own!
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): You’re already friendly and charismatic, but Mars and the Sun are giving you an extra boost. Work demands seem to cramp your style, but actually offer a chance to focus that extra charm to useful effect. Be careful of your upper back!
CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): Work is light, sociable, and cheerful. Play seems to take some effort, though. You enjoy that kind of hurdle, so it’s not necessarily a problem. Accept a challenge to your professionalism as a chance to get creative.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): You thrive on your struggle against notions of normalcy. Now you get to appreciate that, without those conventions, you wouldn’t have any fun. You can change reality a bit now, but you have to change yourself in the process!
PISCES (February 19 – March 19): Sexy gossip sends your reputation way up or down. You can influence the message by being assertively pragmatic in your response. Actions still speak louder than words. Think before you act!
