The Sun is aligning with Eris stoking competition and identity issues. Venus in Pisces is in semi-sextile with both helping to show keys to cooperation and conciliation. Consider how your own achievements can raise not just your stature, but others’ also.

ARIES (March 20 – April 19): Take care of No. 1 first, but part of that is so you can be in service to those around you who need help. When you’re clear on who you are, you can be the most generous star in the sky.

TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): Think about your last will and testament, just as an exercise in considering who and what is important in your life. When you’re gone, what will be left for whom? The real question: What do you want to achieve before then?

GEMINI (May 21- June 20): Your social goals are now clearer than your personal ambitions. Feeling vague about your career may just signal a transition that can lead to greater clarity. Talking about it with your friends can prove very helpful.

CANCER (June 21- July 22): Work and accomplishment are keys to fulfillment. Striving for a personal best is more meaningful than competing against others. Share work and credit to get more accomplished and to learn from others how to do a better job.

LEO (July 23 – August 22): Be as loud and outspoken as you like. If that gets you into arguments treat them as a game. If you don’t enjoy arguing, why bother? Playfulness is sexier than conquest, although you don’t need help in that department either!

VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): An erotic competition with your lover can help you to come together in more ways than one. Get creative! Sharing ideas, even if you don’t act on them, can build intimacy, laying the foundation of a happy home.

LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): Be very clear about whom you’re competing with and whom you’re competing against. Empathizing with colleagues helps, but clear verbal communication is more reliable than warm, fuzzy feelings.

SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): Take appropriate responsibility for boosting morale at work. Small competitive games can help bring people together. Reevaluate your health and fitness regimen. Remember, you’re out for a personal best, not to outdo others.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): Even in a contest pushing for your own best performance is always the most important part. Trying to best others is secondary, and if that becomes your goal you can cause rancor among people in your family or community.

CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): Whether you’re defending your family from others or yourself from your family, empathetic communication will diffuse a lot of the trouble. Practical techniques, sensible logic and the “tried and true” aren’t really helping. Trust more in your intuition.

AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): Open your heart before opening your mouth. If being cleverer than your friends is easy or important, you need new friends – or maybe they do. Who really does count in your life and why? Tell them – not for their sake, but for your own.

PISCES (February 19 – March 19): Sweetness and empathy can be your best traits when they’re not a cover for codependency. Be a bit ruthless and think of yourself now. Cultivate the traits that will drive you to success. If you want to help others you’ll do it better from a position of strength.
