Mercury, Venus, Jupiter and Eris are aligned in Aries. Take care of yourself while remembering it’s not all about you! While the North Node is in Sagittarius trining this pile-up, philosophical discussions can help you get clear focus on needed lessons.

ARIES (March 20 – April 19): You’re filled with enough energy and charm to conquer most worlds, but you’re stuck on this one. Even if world domination isn’t feasible, you’re clever enough to plot reasonable victories. New perspectives will help.

TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): Too much time alone brooding is bad for your health. Some dark erotic adventure or metaphysical studies can channel that energy toward your betterment, or at least help you to unlock self-destructive secrets and be free of them.

GEMINI (May 21- June 20): You could host one hell of a party, but be careful not to set the house on fire. Map out the future with your partner. Your plans are likely to be extravagant and all over the place, but your sweetheart will help you get a clear focus.

CANCER (June 21- July 22): Focus more on your work than your career. Quality and effectiveness speak much better for you than aggressive self-promotion. Don’t worry about being noticed. That’s inevitable. The question is what will they see?

LEO (July 23 – August 22): Exploring new ideas should always be fun and creative. The best arguments don’t depend on winning, but rather help you to understand broader perspectives. You can also learn a lot from the art, film and music of other cultures.

VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): Challenges at work aren’t quite so severe as they seem. The lessons of childhood (share, be polite, wash your hands, etc…) make a good starting point. Your partner, family and tribe can be more helpful than you expect.

LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): If there’s any doubt that your partner is on your side it is probably a problem in communications. In a working relationship, discuss your approaches to the tasks at hand. If it’s about love, solutions are in the bedroom.

SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): Work problems are building to a crisis that will make everything clearer, but there’s too much going on for any answer to be easy. It boils down to priorities. Tough choices could anger some friends; keep communications open!

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): You might win the contest or achieve the masterpiece, but too many strategies are buzzing in your head. Rule No. 1: Be true to yourself. No. 2: Remember where you come from. Start there and you will succeed.

CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): Are you the storm tearing through your home or are you the eye of the hurricane? It’s too easy to get sucked into the maelstrom thinking you can fix the problems. Better to find your inner peace and operate from there.

AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): It’s not unusual for your tongue to get ahead of your brain. Do try to reel it in, listen and think ahead before speaking. In all the babble that surrounds you, there are some brilliant ideas. Listen, discern and be inspired.

PISCES (February 19 – March 19): Impulsive spending won’t make you feel better. Know what you’re worth and what you can do. Both are probably a lot more than you realize. Focus and work; you will succeed! Having a plan helps, even if things never go as planned.
