Pluto in Capricorn, Mars in Virgo and Venus conjoining Jupiter in Taurus are all making a “grand trine,” offering everyone vast creative power and the ability to make deep changes. Or you could just wallow in your comfort zone and indulge in wild hedonistic pleasures. With careful planning you could even do both.
ARIES (March 20 – April 19): Take a critical look at your work habits and start a process of making revisions; be helpful to others, but remember to get your own work done first. Reconsider your long-range goals. A radical shift may offer better, more lucrative opportunities
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): If you can act free of resentment, fear and anger you can do almost anything and the big risks will pay off for you. If those three problems are in the way, challenge yourself to understand why and to let go.
GEMINI (May 21- June 20): Your brain is going on strike so rely instead on your heart. Take time out to connect with the people you love, and especially with yourself. An adult is someone who takes responsibility and has stopped blaming his or her parents.
CANCER (June 21- July 22): You can’t un-say what’s been said, but apologies and some critical reflection can do wonders for your relationships, personal and social. You don’t need to beat yourself up. We all have room for improvement.
LEO (July 23 – August 22): Being super sexy is a distraction from more durable opportunities. Redirect your irresistible seductive charms to making important career connections. Your willingness to take on hard work and challenge is your strong suit. Work in some modesty and you’ll go far!
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): Erotic explorations may have less than thrilling results but most experiments offer the benefit of experience if not perceptible success. The next few weeks are for rethinking your relationships, but beware of making hasty changes.
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): Easy answers to spiritual questions shouldn’t be trusted. It’s too easy to fall into dogmas, especially if they reflect or react against family teachings. Keep digging to see where and how those feelings got so deeply entrenched.
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): Smoothing out arguments with friends does not mean putting them under a pavement! Be mature enough to keep principals above interpersonal tiffs and your own bruised ego… er… feelings. Being nice might be work, but it will pay off.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): Beating the boss in a battle could cost you the war. With a little self-effacing modesty and a lot of hard work you could win him or her over and gain a powerful ally.
CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): It feels like you can barely keep up with the treadmill, but you got the power! Still, what to do with it? Your best clue: Ask your 9-year-old self what you really want to be when you grow up.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): Bureaucratic snafus can get expensive. Make sure your papers are in order! A bad case of foot-in-mouth is headed your way. Not only is quiet mediation a safe retreat, but it should offer profound, even transformative insights.
PISCES (February 19 – March 19): No relationship is perfect and it’s too easy to find fault. Being or finding a partner is all about trying to be a better person. When discussing problems be gentle on yourself and your darling.
