ARIES (March 20 – April 19): Sex doesn’t solve all the problems in a relationship, but now it offers an interesting perspective on whatever the real problems are. Any secrets, resentments, unfulfilled wishes? Share yours and invite your partner to open up!
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): Your partner and colleagues are obstructing whatever you want to do. Or is that really it? Be responsible for your own accomplishments. While your partner’s feedback won’t make you happy, it will help you find answers.
GEMINI (May 21- June 20): Trying too hard to promote your own plans can provoke problems with colleagues. If you’re sensing hidden agendas, it may be due to your own pushiness. Have a good talk. Listen between the lines, but double-check any suspicions.
CANCER (June 21- July 22): Keep the wicked fun at home where it belongs. Your creative challenge at work is to keep it clean, or at least appropriate. One step out of line will put you into somebody’s firing range.
LEO (July 23 – August 22): Rude remarks about your family may be just thoughtless, not meant to offend. Don’t let them lure you into senseless arguments. Simple straightforward pride in who you are and where you come from doesn’t depend on what others think. Consider the source!
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): Can you keep a secret? Please do! While it may seem that openness can save you some money or get you a romantic adventure, letting kitty out of the bag can cost you a lot on both counts.
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): Be completely honest with your partner about finances. It will create some challenges, but those little problems are just necessary steps to solving big ones. Keeping up with the Joneses is just another jones. Take pride in your values, not your belongings.
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): Worrying about your health is the biggest danger to your health, but getting a check-up “won’t hurt a bit.” (Oh, just spread ’em and breathe!) Your colleagues should be teammates, not competitors. Still, being alert for skullduggery isn’t necessarily paranoiac.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): Worries and doubts inhibit your efforts at self-expression. Take that as a creative challenge to articulate the problems and dig deeper at what’s behind them. Friends’ insights are helpful. Even when they’re wrong, use the input as a springboard.
CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): Friends getting on your nerves are hitting buttons about frustrated ambitions, perhaps echoing parental expectations that have long jarred against your own real aims. Discuss that with your annoying pals to get clearer about what you really want to do.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): Wanting to show off your brilliance, or prove that you’re right, is the surest way to get into trouble. Any argument should be an invitation to investigate the facts. That is ultimately the best way to get it right!
PISCES (February 19 – March 19): Everybody wants a taste of you, but what and who do you really want? Think that one through, and don’t accept the first offer too quickly. Better yet, why wait to be asked? Have an open conversation with the one you desire.
