“Explore your sexuality, Sagittarius!”
When three planets form an equilateral triangle, we call that a “grand trine” – a sign of harmony and ease, in this case among Jupiter in Scorpio, Uranus in Pisces, and Mars in Cancer, assertive planets in emotional signs. Intuitions, outbursts, and sudden passions can produce surprising benefits.
ARIES (March 20 – April 19): Everyone is used to your outbursts, but not the depth and passion that those explosions are now reaching. Run with this energy! It can help you clear out old problems, clarify self-awareness, and empower sexual passion.
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): Tell your partner and friends anything you want to get off your chest – the most difficult and challenging things that you need to say. They may be shocked, but they will be more willing than usual to adapt to your stated needs.
GEMINI (May 21 – June 20): Review your domestic budget and look for ways to save. Brilliant ideas for work will get you surprisingly favorable notice, and likely a promotion or a raise. The more challenging the new tasks are, the more you will shine.
CANCER (June 21 – July 22): Fun, games, and adventures beckon. Be assertive, and be yourself. The trick is focusing the surge of energy you’re feeling now. If you can pick a direction and stick with it, you can win at almost anything you set your mind to.
LEO (July 23 – August 22): You could make a steamy spa retreat at home, in and around your bathtub. Candles? Music? A sensual treat with the right company leads to delicious surprises. Make sure you have your rubbers, ducky!
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): Sudden opportunities open up for you in community politics or through friendly neighbors. The more energy you invest, the bigger it will pay off. Your partner can be very helpful – or this break could help you find a new partner.
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): Be bold and assertive in your aims. Stand up to your boss, if necessary, but at least stand up and be proud of your accomplishments. You have everything to gain now and can hardly lose. Even the rudest surprise will be an opportunity.
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): You’re especially open to new ideas. Join in or listen to any debate with an eagerness to learn new perspectives, which will open up fresh approaches to love and games. Take a risk – you can hardly go wrong.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): It’s a great time to explore your sexuality, digging deeper into self-awareness and presenting yourself more clearly and assertively. That could mean less sex in the short run, but better sex in the long run!
CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): Arguments with your partner seem to come out of nowhere, but relate to issues you’ve been struggling with for a little while. Even if the arguments seem very emotional, they will help clarify the context, if not the logic, of recent challenges.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): Home-baked goodies win you support on the job, but nothing beats good, hard work and thoughtful networking. Don’t be afraid to appeal to emotions and loyalty. You’ll be surprised at the rewards!
PISCES (February 19 – March 19): You’re lucky in fun and games, including the fun and games of “love,” but probably not true love itself. Enjoy the moment, and if you really want more, buy a few lottery tickets.
