Q Scopes: Think kink, Capricorn!

Uranus, newly in Aries, cranks up spontaneous individualism and assertion. The Sun is in Taurus, semi-square to Uranus provoking a lot of stubbornness. Don’t challenge others with an uppity, obstinate attitude; look for creative new ways to show loyalty and resilience.

ARIES (March 20 – April 19): The cost of living it up may force some choices in how you unwind. How you have fun is more serious than you may think. Look ahead 10 years and imagine what friendships, talents and skills you’d like to have developed through your hobbies.

TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): Life’s tough blows have been piling up, but don’t let it give you piles! Much as people depend on the solid, reliable Bull you need to be able to let it out and lean on someone else.

GEMINI (May 21- June 20): Your friends are only human. Don’t take disappointments too much to heart. Cutting off communications is a big mistake, but so is over-talking the problem. A short break or limiting conversation for a while may be best.

CANCER (June 21- July 22): Your friends’ ideas for promoting you are too much from the heart, not enough from the brains. Going along with their ideas could hurt your rep and your wallet. Don’t argue. Thank them for their ideas and change the subject.

LEO (July 23 – August 22): In your ideal relationship you’re the star married to your agent or manager. That means you can’t always be the boss! Arguments are a normal part of a healthy partnership as long as listening remains more important than speaking.

VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): Novel sex techniques can be a blast but may require novel forms of safety. They can also open up a lot of suppressed feelings. How well do you know your partner? Just be sure that he or she can be trusted!

LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): You and your mate could have a great time exploring kinky new fun. Anything from silk scarf bondage to cattle prods is open to testing. Slow, careful and easy is the best approach, at first anyway.

SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): Whatever position you occupy you are still part of a team and everyone else is as important as you. As much as your special talents do contribute to the team, cultivate humility as one of those talents!

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): Argue about movie, art, sports, anything fun or creative; you’re sure to find amazing new ideas. Keep your mind and ears open and respectful of other notions. Well, at least be polite with the idiots.

CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): Livening up your home life should be a fun creative challenge, not a painful economic one. Think kink! Sexually or otherwise, unleash your dark side in planning any changes – but not in how you treat housemates in effecting them.

AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): Criticism of family, housemates or your community could be surprising (even to you!) in its harshness. If you really can’t be kind, give your loved ones a break and look for schmucks or dysfunctional organizations that deserve your wrath.

PISCES (February 19 – March 19): Financial surprises can work your nerves. You seriously need a break. A long walk, meditation, a hot soak… try something new and different even if it’s just a quiet stroll in a park or country road you’ve never trod before.
