Venus and Sun entering Virgo should point the way to clean, simple aesthetics, but aspecting Uranus and Pluto on the way could trigger some very drastic housecleaning. Thorough is good; ruthless, not so much. “Pirate Jenny” captures the dark side. Nina Simone sings it on YouTube.

ARIES (March 20 – April 19): Rushing to succeed, you could easily step on colleague’s toes. Take time to apologize, or save time by exercising some foresight and consideration. Your consideration and teamwork skills are key to maximizing your own accomplishments.

TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): Your idea of fun may have more to do with embroidery or repairing furniture than shaking your bootie at some club. Be yourself. Willingness to take on new challenges doesn’t mean following a herd. Your real friends love you as you are.

GEMINI (May 21- June 20): Reconciling family issues and sexual values can be more complicated than hiding the “toys” when Mom comes to visit. When tempted to criticize relatives, especially parents, try asking questions instead – if you think you can handle the answers!

CANCER (June 21- July 22): Dressing and acting like a martinet could start a hot scene in the bedroom; in real life it’s a major turn-off. Revolution is brewing. Keep your eyes and ears open; your words well-measured and discrete.

LEO (July 23 – August 22): Sexual healing can be real; retail therapy isn’t. New shops are a danger to be avoided. Amorous adventures at least offer possible rewards along with the risk. Think ahead about your financial, spiritual and physical health in any event.

VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): Every birthday brings you a step closer to… yes, but also your greatest remaining accomplishments. Consider how you can change the world, or at least one small part of it. Your most daring ideas need harnessing and work. What’s stopping you?

LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): Your situation at home can provoke anxieties. Focus on your responses, how and why you’re reacting. With some work and focus, you can minimize the angst. With clearer insights you can also improve the external situations triggering them.

SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): When friends get on your nerves, it’s usually best to shrug it off. Turn that irritability into productive criticism at work. Think ahead before speaking, to improve techniques and productivity without dissing your colleagues.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): If you must channel Bette Davis at work, be harder on yourself than everyone else. Being brilliant doesn’t get you ahead; getting the job done does. Stay on track and get the job done brilliantly, like Bette!

CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): Turn that critical mind not on those around you, but on your own roots, your sense of your childhood and family. Talking with siblings can help if you can listen with open heart and mind. It may not be easy!

AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): Take time out to focus on issues of sexual health, both physical and psychic. A complete physical check-up is always a good thing. Meditate also on your needs and desires. Are they at odds? Are they realistic? You may have some hard choices.

PISCES (February 19 – March 19): Planning a financial future is dodgy for anyone these days. Working with others is challenging, but offers synergistic opportunities. Feeling the pinch can strain a relationship. As long as your partnership comes first, pooling resources makes any future more affordable.
