Q Scopes: Take charge, Capricorn!

Sun in Leo is beach weather! Vacations, fun, strut your stuff! But as Sol is sextile Saturn in Libra needful limits and responsibility are lurking behind the fun. A constructive project, maybe a charitable fundraiser, could even be the fun. Work with others to focus your creative juices.

ARIES (March 20 – April 19): Let your partner help you to guide and focus your dazzling brilliance. Suggestions that may seem restrictive can be the most helpful. If you’re single, a durable love may be out there in someone much older or younger.

TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): Parental responsibilities loom large. If you don’t have kids or elderly parents who need your attention, think about what you’ve gotten from your community and how you can keep it strong for your own benefit as much as for others’.

GEMINI (May 21- June 20): Edit, trim, get more meaning in fewer words. Practice the fine communicative art of silence, the subtle nod, the lift of an eyebrow, the discreet gesture. You can find a lot of power saying more by talking less.

CANCER (June 21- July 22): What do you really value about yourself? You’re at the beginning of a 15-year career upswing. Take good stock of your virtues (and your flaws) to have a clear idea of what foundation you provide to build on.

LEO (July 23 – August 22): Your birthday month is your time to roar, but for now keep it quiet. Words are too important to waste and quiet intensity can be stronger than loud declamations. Deal with serious issues; get them out of the way. Then you can celebrate!

VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): Tough times bring out your inner strength. Meditation as well as thoughtful organization will help you to economize better. Helping others less fortunate can also inspire you to greater effectiveness.

LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): You have a lot of hard work and challenge now, but keeping an eye to the future can help you see through the gloom of the present. Your friends will help you keep perspective.

SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): Doubts can push you to try too hard in your work. Calm down, meditate. Family (genetic or chosen) can help you get solid grounding. They can also wear you down, so pick your confidants and approach them carefully.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): You need a mental challenge in a new venue. If you can’t afford a real vacation, find movies or art shows that can take you to different worlds, or a good book to stimulate your brain. Invite a friend to suggest something that will really test you.

CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): Take charge in the bedroom. This is your chance to be supremely powerful and dominant – or to make an art form of being a “pushy bottom.” How discreet is your partner? Your reputation is likely to spread.

AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): Disagreements with your partner (or with anyone else) are nothing new. The serious ones gain special importance – not in a divisive way, but as a challenge for you to learn something and grow closer.

PISCES (February 19 – March 19): Be very careful of sports injuries and sunburns. When was your last check up? Get very serious about your health! There may be some very serious problems lurking. The sooner you deal with them the better!
