As the Sun enters Leo, he offers chances to reconcile the opposition between Saturn in Libra (conservative social controls) and Uranus in Aries (individualistic impulses). Standing up for yourself and looking good may feel too important. Focus on the special gifts you have to offer others. The real challenge there is to keep generosity untainted by ego. Paradoxically, the best way is to acknowledge your own selfish motivations.

ARIES (March 20 – April 19): Fun and games can help you dodge problems in relationships even when they feel like solutions. The real solution lies in working through your most private fears and pains. Direct those playful urges to creative healing.

TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): Cleaning house is not the problem, but could be the solution. Focus on questions about your friends and your future while putting things into order and the answers will surprise you with their clarity and foresight.

GEMINI (May 21- June 20): Sure, all work and no play – what kind of creative fun can be used to bolster your work rather than to distract from it? Reassessing your goals may be a necessary step toward that answer.

CANCER (June 21- July 22): The clash of your ambitions against the roots of your traditions shows some creative awareness, but those roots are important. Find a meeting point in your personal values. Reconciliation comes better from empathy than logical ideology.

LEO (July 23 – August 22): You’re feeling your oats and ready to roar, but stop and think. You can focus all that brainpower and energy into something really spectacular. Greatness takes work, patience and discipline. Be ready to transform yourself as prerequisite to changing the world.

VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): New erotic ideas are stoking your imagination. Within your fantasies it’s all fair game, but with a partner you’ll need to reconcile dreams with real-life limits. Some limits are open to renegotiation at least!

LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): In these tough times your instinct is to hunker down and get serious, but your partner (or your impulse to find one) is proving disruptive. Think ahead, welcome new input, but do it with careful consideration, grounding and discipline.

SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): Careful, conservative instincts will help you get to the top. More daring ideas from colleagues and aides can be useful. At least consider them and see how they can fit in constructively. Use expert opinions from authorities and those “in the trenches.”

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): Welcome new ideas even if they do send your mind into a dizzying variety of directions. Talk with friends to get integration and grounding. New insights into family problems offer you a chance to ameliorate problems that may never be entirely solved.

CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): Behind-the-scenes work will still be noticed, and will help boost your career. Family and community support may look counter-productive, but harnessing that support constructively is key to your success.

AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): Crazy new ideas are knocking against long-held ideals. You can’t solve the dilemma on your own, but engaging a partner or a respected opponent can help you see how the pieces can fit together.

PISCES (February 19 – March 19): Look into any potential health problems you have been neglecting. You’re due for a rude surprise, but can still nip it in the bud. Pay special attention to your heart, circulation, kidneys and pancreas.
