Q Scopes

Mercury conjoining Jupiter in Taurus offers new practical ideas. Then he enters Gemini stirring up new ideas to build on those foundations. Sun and Mercury squaring Neptune can create confusion or inspiration. Conversation and logic will keep things clear.

ARIES (March 20 – April 19): New information, important as it is, points to a more important larger picture. Don’t get too hung up on details. Taking the broad view is worth the effort. Keeping cool at work is a challenge too, but could get you a raise.

TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): Even with good reason to feel sure of yourself, cockiness can stir up arguments with your partner. Is financial stress driving your competitiveness or the other way around? Don’t jones on keeping up with the Joneses!

GEMINI (May 21- June 20): Instincts to keep quiet are good, but temporary. When you get the urge to talk, first employ your partner as an editor. Being mature and responsible, especially with information, is not only effective, but could prove to be fun.

CANCER (June 21- July 22): A breakthrough in old memories is just the beginning of illumination. Work with that information and get some real insight. Balance your social activities with time alone to charge your batteries. If you wear out so will your welcome.

LEO (July 23 – August 22): Strictly speaking friendship is a benefit. You and a pal may have some confusion about what benefits are included. Awkward? For a bit. True friendship endures much worse. Dreams of future accomplishments are nice. Doing it now is better.

VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): Promoting your own ideas can take you far. Listening to new ones can help you get further. The next few weeks are excellent for work, but don’t neglect issues at home. Invite the boss home (or somewhere) for dinner.

LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): Nobody is right all the time; admitting when you’re wrong makes you right more often. Staying one step ahead of your partner is not acting as a team. If you must be competitive, make it the two of you against the world.

SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): Arguments at work could get worse over the coming months. Your real brilliance will show when you challenge your own ideas. Think hard about where you want to be in two years and how you need to adapt to get there.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): Devotion to your partner could come across as bossiness. Devote some attention to yourself! If you’re single, speed dating could prove amusing. Even if you don’t find The One you could meet lots of interesting folks.

CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): Connections you’ve been building with colleagues need repair. That will take time. A sense that they’re not reliable is probably more about miscommunications than intent. Talking with them is part of the solution, but first look inside yourself for keys to the problem.

AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): Anxieties can be a great source of creative expression. The next few years will be difficult but even in your pessimism a clear idea of the dangers ahead can offer a clue to making the most of it.

PISCES (February 19 – March 19): Nestling into cozy domestic fantasies will only create trouble and confusion. Express your ideals and your dreams with your family or roomies, clear up misconceptions, and take responsibility for creating a cozy domestic reality.
