Mars is finally turning direct on the 13th! As he starts moving forward, heal recent blow-ups and resentments. He’s opposing Neptune, so over-eagerness and hypersensitivity may aggravate raw wounds. Time is on your side. Easy does it.
ARIES (March 20 – April 19): Rash impulses, touchiness and pushing yourself too hard will only invite trouble. Resisting those demons is a huge challenge right now. Practice meditation, “moderate” exercise, patience and sympathy. If you can’t be nice, take a long meditative walk.
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): Your financial intuitions are good, but you need to discuss them with your banker or accountant who might improve on them. Sexual innovation will help your partnership, but again, better to consult rather than to act on impulse.
GEMINI (May 21- June 20): Charm wins attention and admirers, but real love and commitment take more. Think seriously about where you want to be in 20 years and discuss that with your (prospective) mate. Your boss’s insanity is not your problem; how you respond to it is.
CANCER (June 21- July 22): Listen carefully to colleagues for chances to improve working relationships. Your personal relations are a bigger challenge as you feel pulled between love and work. Right now work has to come first. Your partner will understand.
LEO (July 23 – August 22): As your friends look to you for leadership it’s too easy to fall into pleasant routines. Take a creative challenge and push for something new and different. If you can wait a week or two to make any financial decisions.
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): Er… who’s being irritable and hypersensitive? It’s too easy to blame things on your partner. Even a long, strong marriage needs clear boundaries. Clearing the air can be helpful, but solutions will come later. Be patient.
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): Your flirtatious instincts could upset your sweetie. Take care of what you already have going! A little fresh air and innovation are necessary to keep a relationship alive, but you have to work together on that!
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): Losing some friends could be good, but slow down and think hard about who you want in your future. A great new passion is probably just a passing fancy, but why pass it up? Just be careful of expectations and prophylaxis.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): Throw yourself into your work. Even if you’re feeling disconnected and just running on momentum you can get a lot done. Seeking attention and promotion will backfire. Just keep your shoulder to the wheel. Rewards will come later.
CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): Rumblings close to home point to domestic trouble on the horizon. Those problems aren’t serious – yet. Take some time off from work; make time for your mate. Work together on changes. Flowers or dinner out are nice surprises. Redecorating on your own isn’t.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): Those cuties flirting with you are probably partnered. Nothing wrong with flirting as long as you’re careful. Getting too witty will undermine caution. Think ahead! Write down those bons mots that are too incendiary for conversation.
PISCES (February 19 – March 19): Domestic and professional relationships can bolster each other, but prioritize the professional for now. It’s hard to maintain focus and people are pulling you in different directions. Principles will offer direction. Focus on what is important in your life and who will fall into place.
