Trust your instincts, Aries!
The Jupiter-Neptune square of late January continues until April 6. That opens us to philosophical mysteries and intuitive knowledge. It also invites ill-considered experiments with drugs, and codependent excess. This week, the Sun and Mercury conjoin Neptune, offering some clarity on how you can make these next few months more positive.
ARIES (March 20 – April 19): Are friends taking advantage of you – or vice versa? There is a difference between “benefits” and exploitation! In a generally confusing period, this is the time to trust your instincts. Difficult actions should be taken right now.
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): Relationships with colleagues are going to be tricky for a while, and you may easily be taken advantage of. Now is your time to be clear about what you want and what you can rightfully expect.
GEMINI (May 21 – June 20): You can’t win any arguments now, but you can heed the arguments of others to see where your own reasoning could stand improvement. Ideals need not be rational, but how you spell them out must be.
CANCER (June 21 – July 22): The stars promise fantasy sex – but is it your dreams coming true, or just all in your dreams? Being openly playful with your partner is easy – up to a point – but you need to articulate your secret desires if you want them to be fulfilled!
LEO (July 23 – August 22): The next few months are generally confusing with regard to your relationships. Family traditions offer insights, but there will be more confusion along the way. What you learn right now in this moment of clarity can help you through the upcoming muddle.
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): The rest of this winter sees you being very vulnerable to infections – anything from sniffles on up. Be careful whom you play with and how! Now is the time to see where your weak spots are and how to care for yourself better.
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): Can you afford your amusements? This is the time to get creative and figure out more economical pleasures. Harness your talents, and your fun need not seem extravagant. It could even prove lucrative.
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): Family problems loom large. First question: Who (or what) really is your “family”? Second question: Why? Those aren’t easy to answer, but this week offers clear insights to start working from.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): A door to the Twilight Zone has opened in your brain, and will be around until April. If you need help coping, ask a Pisces friend. Now is the time to articulate things that will at other times be very hard to express.
CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): This is the time to clear through any financial muddle. The next few months are going to be a monetary maze, so get what insights you can right now. They will help you get through the rest of it.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): Who are you? What are you? You’re used to others wondering, but now “you’re” in a season of quandary. New insights and answers this week will open up more questions, but they’ll be better questions than the ones you’re struggling with now.
PISCES (February 19 – March 19): Inside your head is a dangerous place for you to be, even at the best of times. Now there’s a light in that darkness. What you figure out now may be key to solving the next few months of relative confusion.
