Ask for assistance, Gemini!
Just before leaving Scorpio, Mercury is sextile Venus in Capricorn, offering a few days of shrewd, calculated charm (think Dorothy Parker and the Algonquin Round Table.) Then when Merc blows into Sagittarius, he shifts from sharp wit to boisterous cheeriness.
ARIES (March 20 – April 19): Your now-sharpened tongue can get you into any bed and/or up a few steps on the ladder of success. Scope out your opportunities and make your commitments quickly. Subtlety only lasts so long; soon your maneuverings will be clear to all.
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): Don’t be shy or too set in your ways. The one you love – or someone sweet on you – wants to offer you something new and different. At least be open to discussing the possibilities. Nothing ventured, nothing gained!
GEMINI (May 21 – June 20): Work will lighten up soon. In the meantime, asking for assistance can help build stronger cooperative relationships. Flirtation at work is generally a bad idea, but right now some innocent, playful banter would be fine.
CANCER (June 21 – July 22): Opening up and telling your partner (or any prospective partner) things you want, but have never admitted to, will create delightful opportunities. You may not get exactly what you asked for, but the discussion will lead somewhere really good!
LEO (July 23 – August 22): It’s a great time to fix up your home, even if your impulses run to recreating historic bordellos. You could also get involved in any kind of community work to bring latent skills to the surface and make some great new friends.
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): Shy, reticent Virgo? Not now! You have a sharp wit and know how to use it. You may want to be gentle or not quite as naughty as your impulses would lead you. Or just go where you can let loose!
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): This is a lovely time to air domestic issues, perhaps even to resolve them. At least you can count on saying and hearing important concerns in a constructive manner. A mature, practical approach to money problems will also bring progress.
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): Your cool reserve is breaking down, making you more accessible and bringing out your seductive charm. Enjoy it while you may! It’s harder now to keep your secrets private. Keeping your privates secret is up to you!
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): Party monster though you are, you’re better advised now to stick to quiet, intimate gatherings. Meaningful talks with close and trusted friends will offer great insight on all sides, and prove you a helpful, dedicated friend.
CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): Get into helping to plan all those holiday parties coming up. The networking and the chance to show your effectiveness will prove you to be a valuable social asset and provide you with terrific opportunities.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): Showing trust in the boss (or as the boss) will help to inspire confidence, but there are different kinds of trust. Secrets will get out, and all will be better for that! It’s also a good time to reorganize for efficiency.
PISCES (February 19 – March 19): Discuss new ideas freely, open-endedly, and without committing to a particular perspective. You can learn a lot from friends who adopt a stronger position. Your questions and feedback can help them learn, too!
