Finally! Some planetary harmony! Venus is in a grand trine with Mars and Eris, and all in the fire signs. This is delicious for new artistic efforts and passionate crushes. Passion really is the key word for the week, and it can be applied wherever your desires and energy lead. Eris can boost competitiveness, but better to strive for your personal best, not against others.
ARIES (March 20 – April 19): Being your best doesn’t even consider how you stand against others. Meet them in love, not in strife. Explore your own potential, embrace new ideas and apply your creative energies where they feel purest.
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): Lousy “feng shui” could be interfering with your sex life. Fix up your place to make it friendlier, if not more seductive. Meditating on sex and spirituality can help resolve old conflicts.
GEMINI (May 21- June 20): As charmed as you are by others, you can be just as charming yourself. The trick is to take initiative without being too aggressive. If you learn to walk that line you can excel in society, politics and love.
CANCER (June 21- July 22): Take a good look in the mirror before looking into the fridge. Exercise and discipline will do your body and your career good. If you want “sweet,” focus on being nice with colleagues and getting their support for your advancement.
LEO (July 23 – August 22): Your efforts to play and to banter could come off a bit too aggressive. Your good intentions are obvious, but do you really want to come off like a caffeinated terrier? Relax. The best way to impress others is as a good listener.
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): It never hurts to fix up your home, but better to take up the challenge of dealing with old family conflicts. Competitive sex (wrestling?) or pushing your own limits can open up new self-awareness and confidence.
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): Your political instincts are especially sharp now. Understand your opponents’ motivations so you can win them over. Be careful not to promise more than you can deliver. Apolitical? Discuss the future with your sweetheart.
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): Economy and teamwork are your keys to getting ahead. Be careful to make sure your bosses see you as a colleague, not as competition, and they will welcome you into their echelons.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): Your competitive spirit can be a bit excessive. Your strength is apparent; you don’t need to project it. Stay light and friendly. The gentler you are, the more your company is a sweet adventure.
CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): Your role in your community and family may always be an open question. That gives you room to adjust and grow. Your doubts are good. They lead to questions and toward answers you’d never get otherwise.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): You can easily win any political argument, or you can learn a lot from one. You can even do both if you don’t settle for an easy victory. It’s also a good time to revise long-range plans in any relationship.
PISCES (February 19 – March 19): If you just assume that your hard work is being noticed it certainly will be. Trumpeting it could annoy people and push them to overlook you. If you need to assert yourself, work that energy off with some good, sweaty exercise.
