Clear out your garbage, Aquarius!
Venus in Capricorn trine Mars in Taurus should create a lovely, sensual dance of erotic creativity. Alas, both make discordant aspects to Saturn in Leo, bringing delicate egos and assertive compensation into the mix. Focus critical impulses into creative self-improvement, and be polite about others’ “helpful suggestions.”
ARIES (March 20 – April 19): Sublimate that urge to show off. Although you love being a provocative upstart, you have a brilliant opportunity for promotion that being naughty will only undermine. Focus on putting your best foot forward.
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): You could win any fight at home by sheer force of personality, but it would invite further trouble. In any dispute, listen for practical insights and new approaches. Ceding the argument or compromising can ultimately work in your favor.
GEMINI (May 21 – June 20): Resist the impulse to speak up and make yourself known. Your energy is already very present and imposing. Being coy and secretive will help you focus that energy more productively, and your silence will draw a lot more interest.
CANCER (June 21 – July 22): Your recent financial problems may improve if you listen to friends and hear how they handle money. Better not to ask for advice, but rather listen in an open way as the subject comes up.
LEO (July 23 – August 22): You may feel overworked and underappreciated, but trust in the fact that your hard work will earn notice. The more you apply yourself, the more you will get your due. Trying to call attention to your efforts will only backfire.
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): Doubts and worries will be fairly persistent for a while, but think of the oyster that turns constant irritation into a pearl. Go to a museum – ancient arts will help you find a creative outlet.
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): Being suspicious of friends’ motives may be excessive – better to be simply mindful and attentive. Inviting them home can lead to difficult problems, unless they’re “friends with benefits.”
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): You’re at the top of a career cycle, so this is the time to maximize your potential. Advice from friends – but more so from your partner and siblings (genetic or “sistahs”) – will prove especially helpful right now.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): You may be working too hard, but the real question is, what are you working toward? Stop a moment to re-examine your priorities and what you’re doing now to get you where you want to go. Work smarter, not harder!
CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): Practice looking serious and mature. It really looks good on you now! A hard and heavy attitude is great for exploring kinky fun. Just don’t take yourself too seriously – it can only backfire.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): As is all too typical, the real solution to relationship problems lies in solving your “own” problems first. Irritations from a significant other reveal old baggage from your family. Clear out that garbage from your past to enjoy the present much better.
PISCES (February 19 – March 19): Choosing to hold back on what you would like to say may be wise, but trouble in expressing yourself can also create problems at work. Make sure to have friends around with whom you can discuss even the unspeakable.
