The sun in Cancer deepens our sense of identity with family and tribe. (And did you have a nice Pride celebration?) Sun squaring Eris, however, can increase tribalism and factionalism. Being with people is important; against others, not so much.

ARIES (March 20 – April 19): Rushing to defend your family (natal or chosen) may be necessary, but don’t circle the wagons! Your greater challenge, and better for all concerned, would be to take on a more expansive view that sees your tribe in a more global connectedness.

TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): Revealing your deepest secrets is scary. It’s also necessary for your well-being. Holding onto all that tension and fear can undermine your health. If there’s nobody you can trust enough to share that with, find a professional counselor.

GEMINI (May 21- June 20): If you don’t know what a “potlatch” is, Google it. Be careful not to get sucked into competitive spending. Relationships are built on shared values and a vision of the future, not rounds of drinks and flashy baubles.

CANCER (June 21- July 22): Nobody succeeds on their own. Stay clear on your goals and dedicated to your own hard work, but knowing your family, your teammates, and where you come from is essential for getting ahead in any endeavor.

LEO (July 23 – August 22): Temptations to arguments may come out of inner doubts and insecurities that are better confronted than the annoying schmuck at hand. The most worthwhile challenges are the internal ones. Creative expression in any mode can help you gain insights.

VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): Some of your friends may have a better idea than you as to how sexy you really are. Try to see what they see. Your sign is all about detailed appreciation and utilization of material facts. That alone offers immense erotic skill!

LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): Love or career? Great opportunities may be pulling you away from the one you adore. Make your baby a partner in building your success. Be sure to reciprocate! You may have to start by sitting down and talking about it!

SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): Sharpen your mind, not your tongue. To be the best at whatever you do, you need to branch out and learn more about your field, new and different techniques or philosophies. Focus on priorities, even if it does slow down your sex life.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): Good sex is not about being the best there is, but about being authentically who you really are and accepting your partner in the same authenticity. Then again developing technique doesn’t really hurt either!

CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): Family members mean well trying to help your love life, but the best they can do is to butt out. Time alone may be the best thing to get clear on what you need in a relationship, existing or hypothetical.

AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): Keep a clear eye to the future! That may require going back and brushing up on old skills, or learning new ones to remain competitive at work. Heed advice from your partner and colleagues!

PISCES (February 19 – March 19): Hone your skills at games and/or arts, just don’t expect to win any prizes right now! Being your best is the way to get ahead; trying to be better than others distracts you from that.
