Q Scopes

Mercury retrograding across the Sun in Leo already tempts people to say way too much too forcefully. Other aspects make it worse. People using ears and brains will beat those using only their mouths.

ARIES (March 20 – April 19): Efforts to get playful with your partner are likely to misfire. Don’t let that stop you, but think twice before acting or speaking up! The “backfire” could just be fun you weren’t expecting or a chance to clear the air.

TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): Your ruler, Venus, is part of why everyone is working too hard to look good and feel good, so you understand the value of that, but also have a special gift for seeing and cutting through the crap. Trust your instincts, not appearances.

GEMINI (May 21- June 20): New insights challenge you to revise your plans, but your new plan B is just a necessary draft. In a few weeks, plan C will be better. Speak your mind but don’t take disagreements personally.

CANCER (June 21- July 22): New investments are just sweet talk and fantasy. Recommit to your priorities. That can even open new creative opportunities. Financial arguments can lead to helpful insights or impulse spending. Remember those priorities?

LEO (July 23 – August 22): Your friends help you look good and you’re eager to return the favor. Efforts on both sides could cause mishaps, nothing serious, but be ready to apologize for embarrassing situations. Stay in good humor. Don’t take yourself too seriously!

VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): Whatever you want to say, however difficult or unpleasant, will come out. Get it off your chest while you’re calm and eloquent. Save yourself the embarrassing trouble caused by an explosion of temper or resentment.

LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): Winning people over with your charm doesn’t necessarily mean they agree with you. They don’t need to. Let it be! A little less attention to some of your friends and more for your partner can improve relations on both fronts.

SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): Speaking your mind will get you committed to positions and challenges you probably didn’t want, but you can rise to the occasion and even shine. Jog, bike or exercise with a confidante. Sweating and talking will help get your ideas in order.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): Misunderstandings with your partner could end up being more funny and revealing than problematic. Over-identifying with community ideals or traditions can complicate your efforts toward political progress. Here, too, confused messages can be revealing. Pay attention and keep your sense of humor intact.

CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): Some colleagues are encouraging you to bite off more than you can chew. Some of them mean well. You need to focus on your own goals and strong suits. You need to adjust your long-range strategy, but make sure you have one!

AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): Efforts at sly wit will probably anger friends. If you really think you’re so clever, write it down and save it for later. Disagreements and confusion with your partner can help draw out suppressed anxieties, helping you to understand and heal lingering old problems.

PISCES (February 19 – March 19): Struggling to get ahead at work can leave you wondering who you really are. Let the work define you for now. Perseverance will bring insights. So will mistakes, so learn from them, fix them and stay steady on.
