Mercury conjoins Saturn in Libra raising knowledge and articulation of what our relationships are about and where they’re going. Feeling limited can create arguments or healthy productive discussions. Stay focused on what you want and who you love.
ARIES (March 20 – April 19): A drop in energy can leave you feeling high and dry – not that you’re becoming lethargic. You’ve been cranked up, and it couldn’t last. A serious talk about romance can make or break a relationship. Be very clear on what you want.
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): Dreams of great accomplishment can be inspiring or distracting. Stick to the task at hand and make sure your goals are realistic. Discussions with co-workers can get unpleasant, but face the tough facts and you’ll be better for it.
GEMINI (May 21- June 20): Is fun really fun? Take time out from idle pleasantries to apply your wit to more creative endeavors. A little competitive spirit can be a great boost to your efforts. Be careful not to go overboard and get nasty about it!
CANCER (June 21- July 22): Power struggles at home can be sugarcoated with apparently good intentions. Sensing underlying motives can stress you out. Confronting them is sure to create some trouble now, saving lots of trouble in the long run.
LEO (July 23 – August 22): It can be very hard to keep secrets, to know whom to trust. Getting high, even a little buzz, can impair your judgment. Trying to one-up your partner in conversation can get nasty. Be nice to the one you love!
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): A serious conversation about money can leave you feeling deflated, but all the better to deal with reality. Striving to improve your finances does not mean keeping up with the Joneses, nor does economizing require you to suffer. Get creative!
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): Partnered? A sense of domestic security can open deeper intimacy. Little competitions with your partner can be fun. Just remember you’re really on the same side! Single? Dating isn’t a competitive sport. Being serious is good, but not too serious!
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): Remember the reason you work so hard is to keep a nice home. It may not be the castle of your dreams, but it’s the best you have. Keeping that in mind can help you improve your relationship or find one.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): Where people are taking their own ideas too seriously and not listening to each other your practicality and humor can help break those barriers. Just be careful that you don’t fall into the same kind of stubbornness.
CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): If you can’t have meetings with important people, at least keep communications open! It can take hard work to clear up confusion, but your work will be a lot harder if you don’t.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): You might be more brilliant than the world’s geniuses, but it’s usually better to let their ideas challenge your thinking. If you can really do better, write it down and find a publisher pronto!
PISCES (February 19 – March 19): Guard against cranky outbursts. It’s too easy to get into needless, stupid arguments. Anger comes from hidden wounds. Take time alone to care for yourself and work on practical concerns. Cleaning house can be a meditation. Exercise and conversations with trusted friends helps.
