Push the envelope, Libra!
ARIES (March 21 to April 20): Mars, your oh-so-butch planetary ruler, hooks up with communicative Mercury in your house of passionate love. If the idea of the lady in your life sleeping with someone else makes you see red, perhaps you’d better push for the kind of commitment you know you really want. A Leo is waiting for a proposal. Get thee to New Paltz.
TAURUS (April 21 to May 20): If you’re struggling with what to do about a troublesome friendship, err on the side of love. Stop being so stubborn, and let an important ally know that you just need reassurance. Try giving some. A Scorpio can’t quite figure you out (and loves it that way).
GEMINI (May 21 to June 21): Your world is beginning to seriously change, Gemini. It’s up to you to move into the future and stop holding fast to the past. You can create the kind of life you’ve always wanted. But yes, dear, you must be brave. Get off the fence. Another Gemini gives you courage.
CANCER (June 22 to July 22): Mars and Mercury in your financial sector suggest that you can make money from your creative abilities, so don’t be shy about hawking your wares. You don’t have to live a life of drudgery much longer. A Libra may be just the muse you’ve been waiting for.
LEO (July 23 to August 22): This is a fun time in your life, darling, so stop acting so morbid! Get out of your house as much as possible and enjoy the shallow as well as deep pleasures of life. Friends want to know how you really feel, so stop being so (uncharacteristically) monosyllabic. A Pisces wants to be your new best friend.
VIRGO (August 23 to September 22): Jupiter’s fabulous trek through your sign puts you more in charge of your own destiny than ever before. Start making some moves, doll. Don’t just sit there looking sultry. A Pisces is waiting, but is getting restless.
LIBRA (September 23 to October 22): Mars and Mercury hook up in your house of group efforts this week. If you push the envelope, you could really start working for a cause you believe in, with friends you adore. An Aries finds your altruism awfully appealing.
SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21): Fun-loving and fortune-spreading Jupiter is making a lovely transit through your house of friends. Just when you thought you and a bud were purely platonic, sexual tension adds some excitement to the mix. A Cancer wants to be your gal, not your pal.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21): Travel is favored for you now, and so are all pursuits of the artistic persuasion. Basically, you should do everything you can to avoid anything tedious and dreary. An Aquarius is drawn to your edge. Sharpen it.
CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19): This is a fab time for your romantic affairs, dear Capricorn, if you are willing to let someone else (like a strong and sexy Taurus) do all the work. Your job? To learn to receive better. Wipe that smutty look off your face, you slut.
AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18): Get all of the tedious tasks out of the way as quickly as possible, honey. In a few short weeks, your love life will become your number-one priority, so make sure your slate is clean. A Sagittarius wants to be able to slide into your life gracefully.
PISCES (February 19 to March 20): The subtext in your relationships is a lot more fascinating than what’s on the surface. Innuendoes abound. Try to probe your partners about what they really want from you. Or when in doubt, just probe. But bear in mind, a restrained Capricorn is holding out for all your love.
