Fresh into Libra, the Sun and Mercury stimulate friendly conversation but they’re opposite Uranus and squaring Pluto; any dialogue can turn fiercely argumentative or deliciously wicked. Either way, secrets will be revealed!
ARIES (March 20 – April 19): Accepting invitations to fun will cause almost as much trouble as refusing them would. Adventure and drama are inevitable, so embrace them consciously with eyes open or they will sneak up on you. Be bold, not reckless!
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): Don’t let work stress you out. Exercise – especially with a pal – is a good way to shake off the tension. Redistributing the workload among your co-workers can help. Staying focused on the goal is important, but don’t obsess on it!
GEMINI (May 21- June 20): Make the most of your creative spurt. Your efforts to include friends will probably just annoy them. Relax. Let them be the audience when you’re done. If you do find a good collaborator, though, it could become more than a working relationship.
CANCER (June 21- July 22): Make new contacts in your community. You may be surprised to discover how well known and regarded you are already. Those new connections could prove especially helpful in your career. When in doubt, stay close to home.
LEO (July 23 – August 22): Some things just need to be said and sometimes feathers have to be ruffled. Be tactful, but also be ready to deal with the fact that someone will be upset, and he or she will just have to hear it and adapt.
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): Be careful whom you contract with in any financial undertakings. It could work out brilliantly, but is more likely to be a disaster; little chance for in between. Sexual explorations can improve your partnership or help you start one.
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): Getting older beats the hell out of the alternative. The trick is to celebrate maturity, not to try hiding your age. Staying active and fit is one thing; holding on to your adolescence is another.
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): Your energy is high, perhaps hard to control. Worrying about that can turn it into nervous aggravation, making yourself sick. Stay focused on getting ahead, putting one foot in front of the other. Staying where you’re visible will help you stay on purpose.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): If arguments with friends leave you feeling irritated, it’s usually because they’re right. Be big enough to admit it. You’re in too much demand now to be in a cranky sulk. What you learn can prove helpful at work.
CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): Rewards for your accomplishments are likely to be more spiritual than remunerative. If that disappoints you, take it in stride. Remember, you’re always being seen and your attitude is the key to further success.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): If you can’t stay out of arguments, remember that charm can be more persuasive than facts. That doesn’t mean you have to compromise your integrity, but you may want to adjust your attitude. Especially with the one you love, remember to be kind.
PISCES (February 19 – March 19): Trying to settle or change outstanding debts should wait. Focus more on your sex life. What do you really want? Are you taking full responsibility? Partnered: A long heart-to-heart talk is in order. Single: An adventure can open up amazing new possibilities.
