Still in Capricorn, Sun squares Saturn, which can feel limiting; turn that “limit” into focusing on goals. Entering Aquarius on the 20th Sun squares Jupiter in Taurus offering brilliant opportunities. Some are good, but be skeptical. If it looks too good to be true it is.

ARIES (March 20 – April 19): New friends could tempt you to do things you’d never expect. That could get expensive. Be careful of your wallet, but otherwise be open to adventure. Opening your mind to new possibilities can lead to financial opportunities.

TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): Mirror, Mirror on the wall/Vanity leads to a fall. You’ve nothing to prove. Those who don’t love you as you are don’t really matter. Those who do may seem demanding, but rise to the occasion. The challenge will make you stronger.

GEMINI (May 21- June 20): Some things are better left unsaid or talked around rather than directly addressed. Much as you prefer full frontal frankness, stop and think a bit about what the best strategy really is. However apt, sexual analogies can be more disruptive than helpful.

CANCER (June 21- July 22): Re-affirm (or take a late start on) any New Year’s resolutions about quitting a habit or losing weight. To prioritize and simplify your relationships make three lists: important professional contacts; friends you really care about; the few you’d take on a long retreat.

LEO (July 23 – August 22): Harsh words with colleagues will come back to haunt you. Putting what needs to be said nicely or handling blowback effectively can be a huge boost to your career. Accept an invitation to something you’d normally never do.

VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): Your first ideas are likely to be extravagant and wasteful, but don’t let disillusionment stop you. Accept scarcity as a challenge to your creativity. At least you’ll never run out of ideas.

LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): A beautifying regimen could cause your baby to wonder who you’re prettying-up for, or it could arouse envy among the other singles on the make. Focus on your health and your natural beauty will shine.

SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): A break from your past might seem liberating, but remember a tree stands tallest when it has strong roots. You need to criticize and innovate, but build on your past. Even negative examples and painful lessons serve a purpose.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): If you really want to do something nice for your darling, housework is always appreciated. Showing off will just mess it up. Just do with humility whatever’s needed. The less you draw attention, the more it will be appreciated.

CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): It’s too easy to feel beat down thinking of where your hard work has not gotten you. Focus instead on what you have accomplished despite tough times. That can lead you to better strategies and more effective use of your resources.

AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): Some quiet down time can do you good, but you’ll soon come out swinging. Starting or joining a provocative family discussion can be very educational; go ahead, stir it up! Bruised feelings will quickly heal.

PISCES (February 19 – March 19): You could be a big hit at a dungeon party. Hitter or hittee? That’s up to you. Personal insights are better explored with a friend you can really trust. You may uncover inner resources you’d never dreamed of.
