Mars opposes Neptune just before going into Virgo. Showing off and excessive aggression or internalized anger will exact a price that you’ll have to pay very soon! Meditation and swimming help; contact sports are dangerous. You may go overboard with creative hobbies, but those excesses can draw out inner truths.
ARIES (March 20 – April 19): An ego trip usually has a very hard landing. Your ruler Mars opposing Neptune makes it hard to know whether you’re offering too much or too little. Who knows your heart best can tell you how big it really is.
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): Your erotic charms are nearly irresistible. How you use them will tell the world a lot about your values. You’re better off keeping your reputation clean. Honesty and strategy are crucial to winning a struggle at work.
GEMINI (May 21- June 20): You can charm your partner – real or prospective – into almost anything, but its best to use this openness to work on issues in your relationship. The high-minded, mature approach is harder, but in the long run yields better results.
CANCER (June 21- July 22): This week’s full moon brings out your wild side, shocking some friends or making some new ones, and probably starting some very titillating gossip. Enemies at work might try to use that against you, but you can turn it to your advantage.
LEO (July 23 – August 22): Arguments with your partner are based on misunderstanding and your overreactions. Less drama, more empathy would help. Worries about money may be based in reality, but probably still exaggerated. The outlook will improve very soon.
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): Don’t worry yourself sick! Channel that energy into exercise. Swimming and martial arts like tai chi are best. A wave of domestic bliss offers a platform for some serious improvements. Sexual competition can be fun; taking it seriously can get dangerous.
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): Sometimes your charm comes too easily. Overdoing it can alienate some people. What does your partner think about your flirtations? Accept criticism graciously and think seriously about it!
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): Adding another candle doesn’t mean you have to prove anything. Self-consciousness can provoke you to overdo things, hurting yourself or complicating your work. Think less about yourself, more about your partner: committed, for the moment, or hypothetical.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): Mixed messages and rumors can hurt your reputation. Defensiveness just makes it worse. Look at the problem as one to heal with good humor, even at your expense. Clear it up! Opportunity’s around the corner.
CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): One can be over-competitive at work. Pay attention to those nagging inner voices. They can help correct your perspective even if you don’t like what they say. Charity work will also do you much good.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): Don’t take personal criticisms too seriously, but spats with friends can show where you need self-improvement. You don’t need to prove your intellectual prowess, but you may need to admit to your limitations so you can expand your wisdom.
PISCES (February 19 – March 19): Give yourself a little room to be a drama queen – in the right time and place – just to let the frustrations out. Friends will be a lot more supportive than you expect. Being too nice can work against you; focus on being just nice enough.
