Settle family problems, Scorpio!

The long-running Jupiter-Neptune square feeds spiritual commitment and extremism. Venus in Capricorn briefly offers pragmatic applications to rein in – or materialize – the more fantastic idealist impulses. Meanwhile, Saturn in Leo is opposing a Sun-Mercury conjunction, which tends to make us more intellectually stubborn, but could help bring focus to any problem, especially disorders of the ego.

ARIES (March 20 – April 19): Much as you crave company, you may be better off hiding out. Sexual improprieties can threaten your career, and it seems that everyone is looking for an argument. If you can’t go on a retreat, keep your nose to the grindstone!

TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): You can solve problems with professional colleagues, but it will take new ideas in practical application. Don’t expect help at home. Tensions there only make it worse, but a drink or two with good friends will put it all in perspective.

GEMINI (May 21 – June 20): Avoid the temptation to argue. Better to apply that busy brain of yours to spotting unusual opportunities for professional advancement. Applying your imagination to sex will also raise you to unlikely but satisfying new positions.

CANCER (June 21 – July 22): Your partner is especially open to erotic experiments if you approach the subject with the correct, playful tone. What he or she wants may be a bit of a stretch for you – but what’s important, anyway? Keeping baby happy is high on the list!

LEO (July 23 – August 22): Resolve struggles at home by figuring out what you can do practically to improve the situation. Never mind who’s responsible for the problem. Take responsibility for the solution. Flexibility, openness, and sensitivity to others offer your best chances for success.

VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): Stay focused in the present. Your worries – no matter what basis they have in reality – are much exaggerated, and the distraction makes you accident-prone. Surprises from your partner throw you for a loop, but you can work it out.

LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): Playful urges get expensive, but you can entertain creatively and economically at home. The extra cleaning up will reveal some lurking problem, but the solution – being flexible and open to a challenge – will open up great new possibilities.

SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): A sibling (ideally an older sister) can help you settle family problems. Only child? Confide in an older female neighbor. Games at home or from your childhood can also offer some perspective on career problems.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): Meditation or a mad, exhausting bout of erotic passion can calm your overactive mind. Then, you really need to focus on priorities. Arguments that disrupt your home life can, with some effort, lead to solutions to long-festering problems.

CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): Shakespeare’s line, “Neither a lender nor a borrower be… to thine own self be true,” is especially pertinent for you now. Discuss outstanding debts, and look for new ways to settle them satisfactorily.

AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): Anything you do, especially professionally, will be blown up to outrageous proportions – perhaps to your advantage, but don’t count on that. A quiet retreat to consult with confidants will help to steady and clarify the situation.

PISCES (February 19 – March 19): Cooperative projects with friends will help allay your worries. A medical checkup could bring your worries into greater focus, but at least then you can take constructive steps to deal with the problem.
