Mars squaring Mercury cranks everybody’s mouth into overdrive, but Jupiter is revving up opinions and outspokenness even more so. The only way to win an argument under these aspects is to shut up and see what you can learn from contrasting viewpoints!

ARIES (March 20 – April 19): Your grand plan for the future is at odds with others in your family. Try to be open and welcome their opinions. Arguments will be hard to avoid, but there will be much less rancor if you offer a fair hearing.

TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): Overconfidence or any kind of showing off is certain to get you into trouble. Resist the encouragement. Be mindful and ready for any hazards. The only way to reach your goal is one step at a time.

GEMINI (May 21- June 20): “Brilliant new ideas” inspiring an investment plan are really a big mistake. Planning a fantasy vacation can be helpful in bringing goals and dreams into focus, but adventures seriously planned now can lead to disaster. Your big challenge now is to stay real!

CANCER (June 21- July 22): Tension at home makes you eager to get out for some fun. How open is your relationship? Really? Even if you’re single, erotic adventures can stir up more domestic or family trouble than they’ll get you away from.

LEO (July 23 – August 22): You need to talk, but pick your audience or your confidante carefully. A sincere heart-to-heart with a good pal isn’t likely to provide answers, but can offer perspective on your worries about love and partnership. Let that be enough for now.

VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): The best way to head off money troubles is to knuckle down and get to work. The next few years will be tough on everyone. Your fears are probably exaggerated, but not entirely unfounded. Scale down the worries, and crank up the effort.

LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): Getting ahead means making nice with bosses, teachers and authorities, but be careful what you say. Your efforts at brilliance can come off as being uppity and unfocused. Think ahead, stay calm and focus!

SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): Your inclination to argue is coming out of your own inner fears and insecurities. Changes at home are likely working your nerves. Focus on adapting yourself to the inevitable changes. Discuss it with a teacher or counselor.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): This time Facebook is right: Your secret crush will be revealed! That may not be such good news, and could even create an embarrassing situation. Be kind to the poor dear … or maybe you’re the one who needs kindness?

CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): A windfall provides an opportunity for personal advancement – or something nice for your honey. The choice can be difficult, forcing you to decide what is more important right now. Someone who really loves you would support your career.

AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): Focus on the task at hand. Go steady and easy, not too hard, but clear on the step right in front of you. Distractions and over-enthusiasm can lead too easily into arguments and accidents.

PISCES (February 19 – March 19): Get playful, and let your dark side out. Blessings in disguise (uh-oh!) and nightmares can offer fuel for creative projects and/or sexual explorations. Getting nasty and crazy in spirit is good, but be mindful of prophylaxis and other safety concerns.
