Mars, Jupiter and Eris are all lining up together in Aries. This is a very rare triple conjunction that increases impulsiveness, aggression and competitiveness. Fights and wars are very likely to break out. As ethnic and sexual/gender communities become more assertive there is likely to be a strong reaction. Think ahead and keep your eyes open!
ARIES (March 20 – April 19): In the race to get ahead, never forget the people who have helped you along. Even your opponents deserve respect at the very least for how they’ve challenged you and forced you to improve.
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): Whatever personal problems you’ve put on the back burner are liable to boil over. Current upsets could, in a few months, prove to be blessings in disguise. For now, swallow your pride and get help, or get perspective by helping others.
GEMINI (May 21- June 20): Your friends’ support can help you achieve anything, but are you supporting them as well? Rather than going off half-cocked, talk with them to see how your intentions dovetail and overlap. Generosity and synergy are keys to success.
CANCER (June 21- July 22): A little audacity goes a long way, but be careful! In your eagerness for success you could easily come off way too hard and sabotage yourself. Study “The Art of War” by Sun Tzu, not the march-and-slaughter techniques of General Ulysses Grant.
LEO (July 23 – August 22): The more you keep your mouth shut and your ears open the more you will understand where your opportunities really are. There is a time to roar, loud and fierce, but time it correctly. Think surgical, not sledgehammer.
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): Mirror, mirror on the wall says you’re the hottest of them all. Trying to convince others undermines the effect. If you have to tell people you’re hot, you’re not. Just knowing it and feeling it will carry the message.
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): What most people overlook about Libras is that you can be very shrewd competitors. A fierce side is coming out that can be helpful if used judiciously. Especially if you’re struggling with or for your partner, rein in that passion and think ahead!
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): Focus on doing your best work. Trying to best others will arouse anger among colleagues. Keep that attitude also in your exercise. Pushing yourself too hard is dangerous, and pushing others aside could start a fight.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): In sports it’s way too easy to get overly aggressive and hurt someone, probably yourself. Find a creative way to express your fierceness, in writing, song or onstage. Any artistic medium is good, but if it involves sharps, flames or chemicals, be careful!
CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): Are you channeling Scarlett O’Hara? Fight for your home or community, but pick your battles carefully and be careful not to cross swords needlessly with those closest to you.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): Your mouth is more dangerous than ever. Efforts to be witty, provocative and incisive can go way over the top before you realize half of what you said. If it’s too brilliant, write it down.
PISCES (February 19 – March 19): Your finances could skyrocket or just blow up in your face. Discipline and hard work are the key. You may need to think fast and move fast, but be sure to think first. Guard against impulse.
