Mars is in Sagittarius feeding energy but requiring discipline. He’s now trine to Eris, firing up questions about identity and personal or group progress. LGBT people typically live with each foot in a different world. Where do you really stand and how do you walk forward in two worlds at once?

ARIES (March 20 – April 19): If finding your true self requires contemplative quiet, how can you achieve that running all over God’s queendom? Finding the proper balance is a constant search. Nobody gets it 100 perfect. Enlightenment is a process, not a pure achievable state.

TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): Reexamine whatever lessons you’ve learned about being good and true to your heritage. They’re a mix of power and poison. Consider your passion and your true heart’s desire as you review those old tapes and sort them out.

GEMINI (May 21- June 20): It can feel as if your partner and your friends are competing for your time and energy. You can find a balance. It may involve having them all together more – or less. Discussing long-range plans with your partner will help.

CANCER (June 21- July 22): Measuring yourself against others may be a helpful yardstick, but remember to strive for a personal best, not to be overly competitive. How you balance personal effort with teamwork is what is being most noticed now.

LEO (July 23 – August 22): Your playful urges can easily go overboard. If people have trouble keeping up, you may be better off going it alone or being more careful about your company. Let people go at their own pace. It’s not worth arguing over!

VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): As a “sexual minority,” what is your relation to your community? Is it a foundation? A ghetto? How do you represent it in other groups? How do you feel it represents you? There are no easy, set answers, but look for new insights.

LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): Try not to get carried away in verbal or intellectual one-upmanship. Include your partner and associates as teammates in games of wit, not as victims. If you must be bitchy, politicians and celebrities are always fair game.

SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): Hard work and success are shown better by your achievements than your belongings. In this economy “keeping up with the Joneses” is suicidal. Showing off your resourcefulness will earn greater respect.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): Much as you intend to keep the competition playful, your enthusiasm can bowl others over. Fair play and having fun are more important than “winning.” Supporting the team is a more successful strategy than upstaging them.

CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): Staying true to your deepest self may have you feeling sometimes pitted against your family or community. Being a unique individual is what makes you valuable to your people. Respect yourself for that and they will too.

AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): Your political insights are sharp, but so is your tongue. At least think ahead about whom is to be your target. Keep in mind that today’s opponents may be tomorrow’s allies, and we have much bigger problems than community squabbles.

PISCES (February 19 – March 19): Invest time and money sensibly, not excessively in promotion. Be very careful about boasts you may have to live up to. There’s a broad enough space between false modesty and bragging. You’re sure to be noticed, but the question is “how?”
