Q Scopes

Mercury in Leo sextile to Venus in Gemini means well offering bold promises, but he’s turning retrograde, so don’t count on delivery. Passionate flirtations are just that; no more.

ARIES (March 20 – April 19): As your energy and confidence pick up, it’s easy to go overboard. Take time to meditate, exercise, to share your plans and ambitions. You need sensible counsel to keep you on the track to success, and off the road to disaster.

TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): Putting money into your home looks like a good investment, but it’s not. Your sense of community values may put you into a very small minority. Your basic values are good, but what you’ve built on them may need re-hashing.

GEMINI (May 21- June 20): Venus offers you extra charm, but with your ruler Mercury turning retrograde you could charm your way into situations you’d regret. Count on your friends and listen to them. That wild new passion in your life is just a passing fancy.

CANCER (June 21- July 22): A clash between spiritual values and material goals may leave you questioning how you keep body and soul together. Making revolutionary changes requires subtle efforts and personal choices while working subversively within the system.

LEO (July 23 – August 22): Your discomfort with the world is your own problem. Don’t take it out on others. You need fearlessly honest friends to confront you with disturbing truths. The courage to listen won’t come easily, but you can handle it.

VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): Your ability to keep confidences is important to your ambitions. Letting on that you know a secret is the first step to giving it up. Wanting to enjoy attention among your friends can cost you at home. Think ahead!

LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): Mars just into your sign cranks up your energy, but don’t be an energetic crank! While changes at home are necessary, listen attentively to your partner and family. To start change yourself you have to start by changing yourself.

SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): Taking responsibility is not the same as taking blame. Staying quiet and avoiding arguments doesn’t make the others right, but could make you more effective in the long run. You will regret speaking up. Be observant and shrewd working behind the scenes.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): Asserting your sexual desires can be good for you, but stressful on your relationship. Real love requires compromises – on both sides. A serious discussion can reach a satisfactory conclusion. Single? Unsure? A hot new fling is just that. Enjoy. Don’t make plans.

CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): Too much confidence at work can quickly get you into trouble, especially at home. Rallying your people to support you can be a hard sell. They have needs, too! Respect and support them. One way or another they’ll pay you back.

AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): You’re all about changing the world, but can you change yourself? New ideas will soon challenge your deepest values and commitments. The world needs to evolve and change, and you must do so first if you really want to lead the way.

PISCES (February 19 – March 19): The seducer can get even more lost in seduction than the seduced. Worry less about what you need from others and think about what you can offer others of yourself. Even then think ahead and consider your own limits.
