Let off steam, Gemini!
Mars in Taurus sets you on stubborn tracks – you’re either dedicated or obsessive. Now he’s quincunx to Pluto, turning energy up to explosive levels. Flaws in existing techniques will show up dramatically. Find new channels and methods to direct all that power.
ARIES (March 20 – April 19): Shopping or arguments – what will get you into bigger trouble? It may be time to join in a political boycott. Your real challenge is to reconcile what’s important in the here and now with more ideal concerns.
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): When you’re not the immovable object, you are the irresistible force. Get on the move, baby! Your irresistibility is at its height. While the stars are enhancing your erotic charisma, learn what works for you so you can always work it.
GEMINI (May 21 – June 20): Worries about your partner (or of ever finding one!) have some basis in reality, but are exaggerated. Find a confidant who can take your whining and moaning. Solutions won’t come now, but letting off steam helps a lot.
CANCER (June 21 – July 22): Politics beckons, but any little project threatens to get much bigger and more complex than it first appears. If you can effectively organize others to attack the problem as a team, you may have a chance at succeeding; but it still won’t be easy.
LEO (July 23 – August 22): Your playful outbursts need to find the right time and place, or you can get into big trouble. You’re sure to be noticed, whether as a creative genius or an oversexed troublemaker. Your energy is fantastic; just apply some discipline!
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): Some grand notions are challenging the “truths” you learned at Mama’s knee. That can make you mighty touchy. Focus on the real conflict, and accept arguments as an opportunity to learn. Maybe Mama was right back “then” – but “this” is now!
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): Dear, sweet, genteel Libra, you are suddenly a raging, obstinate potty-mouth! That energy needs an outlet. Give yourself an appropriate opportunity to vent and get wild so you can stay out of trouble.
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): Your sudden eagerness for teamwork is commendable, but your stubborn insistence on particular methods is counterproductive. Work on being more flexible and open to the ideas and styles that others bring to the process.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): Your health is especially vulnerable now, especially to inflammations or overexertion of your upper back and neck. High levels of energy can be misleading. Focus on safety and long-range goals. Lift with your legs, not with your back.
CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): Have any good nightmares lately? Terrors from your subconscious can be a terrific source of creative inspiration. Try to face those fears as you might the thrills of a horror film or a roller-coaster ride.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): It’s nice to idealize all of humanity as your family and the world as your home, but close relatives and neighbors demand priority. Your all-encompassing perspective can be helpful if it’s not too much of a distraction from the tasks at hand.
PISCES (February 19 – March 19): Confrontation with authority is inevitable, and loose lips can get you into trouble. Write down your concerns, formulate answers, and then consult the boss or an expert for necessary revisions. Hold to your principles, but be as flexible as that allows.
