Q Scopes: Keep perspective, Sagittarius!

Mercury backing into Pluto, Mars and the North Node, all in Capricorn, may unleash a torrent of backlogged work, ancient regrets, old failures and feeling old. Face up to the hard work that remains before you. Learn from past mistakes, shrug off useless distractions and focus on priorities.

ARIES (March 20 – April 19): Your engine to success is heading toward a train wreck. Some occasional backtracking is necessary for course correction. Take a good look at those who’ve gotten where you want to go, and learn from their examples.

TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): It feels like everything you know is wrong. Maybe! Joining arguments even when you’re unsure can help you discard obsolete notions and get more insight. (Phrases like “Just hypothetically…” or “Playing devil’s advocate…” offer wiggle room.)

GEMINI (May 21- June 20): You need a good challenge to explore new depths, whether in the bedroom, in meditation or in a library is up to you. Exploring kink is fine, but be very careful. Save erotic asphyxiation for another time.

CANCER (June 21- July 22): Every relationship has problems, and you seem to be hitting a perfect storm. This will pass. Dig deep for answers before you even think about running. Single or coupled, think hard about the necessary work that goes into a good partnership.

LEO (July 23 – August 22): Slow and easy does it. When you hit the wall, don’t bang your head against it. Life is more like a labyrinth than a racetrack. You can’t always go forward, but take frequent strategic turns, sometimes seeming to go backward. Breathe. Think. Adapt.

VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): You can make fun look like hard work, but if you find hard work to be fun, be as productive and creative as you like. Remember: Geeks and nerds are ruling the world while partiers fall by the wayside.

LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): Uncover some family secrets if you can stand the shock. Don’t mind upsetting some folks on the way. It will take some digging, but interview your oldest relatives – preferably the outcasts – if you want the dirt.

SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): You can sound a lot harsher than you intend. When in doubt, write before you speak. Even when you want to blast the stupidity out of some obstructive bubblehead, organize your thoughts on paper first.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): Keep perspective! Problems with money and errors in accounts are surfacing. Yes, they indicate deeper problems and will require more work. Focus on the clean up phase for now. You can solve this one step at a time.

CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): Neglected duties and responsibilities will bite you on the ass if you don’t turn around and face up to them. Worrying takes more energy than dealing with them – and the stress makes you look older.

AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): Even your worst nightmares could prove a blessing in disguise. Dig deep into your fears and worries; see what’s behind them. To conquer those fears, do charity work for those who have suffered what you dread the most.

PISCES (February 19 – March 19): The future is looking especially dark, but a rude shock will help you see flaws in that vision. It could be either worse or better than you imagine. It will be very different. Find a safe space to scream, just to let it out.
