Mars in Leo is triggering crises, mostly in the form of fights and mis-understandings that show where we need to wrap things up and move on. Clear away worries and doubts. Analyze problems realistically to find novel solutions.
ARIES (March 20 – April 19): Asserting yourself too forcefully can show people not what you want them to see, but things you’d rather they didn’t. Working to be more truly yourself can be very humbling. That humility will win you great respect.
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): Can a person have too many friends? You may find too much quantity and not enough quality in your social circles. Take some time alone to sort out in your mind who are the ones you really want in your tribe.
GEMINI (May 21- June 20): Examining the provocations to arguments and staying silent (one can dream!) can prove more educational than actually arguing. Review goals that have recently been accomplished and think carefully about your next steps.
CANCER (June 21- July 22): Are your priorities and ideals proving dysfunctional? Be willing to grow and adapt. The time for planning career moves is endiing. Make big, bold choices or events will force difficult changes. Even in those there may be great opportunities. Maybe.
LEO (July 23 – August 22): Pressuring your partner to make a decision will backfire. Physical play – maybe, but not necessarily sexual – will help work off frustration. Be careful with the rough stuff and keep your head clear. Accidents are looking to happen.
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): You can meet somebody very hot and sexy while doing charity work. Not a mercy date, but another volunteer. That milieu will also get you out of your own head, which is a dangerous place. Worry only undermines your own health.
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): What do you want tonight? What do you want in 14 years? Answer the latter question; then think hard about the first. Somewhere in there is a clue about your next big relationship, or necessary changes in your current one.
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): Demands at work are keeping you from home and family. If that sounds like a good thing, you need to make changes around the house. Whatever work offers that home doesn’t suggests the changes you need to make.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): The best way to avoid arguments is to think twice about what you’re hearing and about how others might hear what you’re saying. Or maybe you’d rather not avoid them. The interchange can open you up to new perspectives.
CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): Sex and money are the biggest sources of domestic disputes. Work on money issues first and be willing to bend on sex. Take the initiative on flexibility. Clearing the air can be rough, but is necessary for a happy home.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): With a little help from your partner or a counselor, your money troubles should alleviate soon. (Given the times, that’s relative!). Acting spacey and lost and trying to deny it could upset your partner. Admitting to being vulnerable and a bit confused will help.
PISCES (February 19 – March 19): Worrying about your health only makes it worse. Take positive steps. Moderate exercise is good; overdoing it is not. Your finances should be going up, but like that first rise on a roller coaster. Be careful with your money!
