Retrograde Mars redirects on the 10th but it will take until May before all this brash energy gets back onto the right, manageable course. Pace yourself. Some old demons still have one last chance to bite us on the butt. Let’s hope one or two of them have become vegetarians...

ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
It’s difficult to celebrate when the fates conspire to rain on your parade. Rams are usually party hearty animals but now too much fun is simply too much trouble. Don’t give up on the party scene. Soon things fall back into its place and you can recharge le bon temps to full tempo. In the meantime, sit this dance out and keep your parties small and ... ahem... intimate.
TAURUS (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
Family issues that you thought were long forgotten, may not be. Just when you thought the past was past, a relative tries to stir the pot. But don’t get whipped up. Bulls should continue to do their own thing in their life. Don’t compromise your goals to achieve familial harmony. Agree to disagree and leave it at that. Don’t make their problem your problem.
GEMINI (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
Perhaps it is best just think it rather than say it. Twins are best served by keeping their controversial and off-the-wall ideas to themselves and not bleating them to any and all. Thankfully this phase will soon pass but not before you try to put a rather large foot into your comparatively small mouth. Okay, okay. Chew well and swallow. Need ketchup??
CANCER (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
Filthy lucre will be hard to acquire and even harder to hold for the next few weeks. Crabs are advised to stick to conservative investments and avoid risk. It’s possible that despite any best efforts, some financial retrenchment will still take place but you can soften the blow if you do your fiscal homework. Bears and bulls make money, but pigs lose their shirts.
LEO (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
A flash of self-confidence is dampened by things beyond your control. Prepare to feel a little at odds with anything and anyone new; Things could start off on the wrong foot. As with everything, this dreary time will soon pass but not before Lions manage one final public over-exposure. Forewarned is forearmed, I say. So avoid celophane pants until May.
VIRGO (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
Virgins can’t help but imagine all sorts of heinous acts going on behind the scenes by nefarious folks. Some of it is in your mind, but for those times where you can actually see the dark forces descending, don’t be afraid to take up arms and oppose them. Sometimes the worst fears are what we conjure, not what we ultimately decide to conquer.
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
Recall the old motto, “A friend in need is a pest”? Libras are all too willing to help a pal in distress, however you now see the limits of your charity and patience. There is nothing more appalling than so-called friends who guzzle the milk of human kindness and move on when another source looms large. Be sure to post these thieves on your milk carton.
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
One rung on your ladder of success has been sawed through. Who is the culprit? You will soon see who is who but not before there is one step forward / two steps back in your career. Scorps need to take a deep breath, take stock of their position and slowly, carefully build anew. Your next climb up will be based on a more solid foundation in a stronger market.
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
Your next vacation may be the trip to hell if you are not prepared. Archers may wish to avoid any extensive travel at this time; bags get lost, reservations screwed up and you may wind up sharing your room with an insurance broker from Snooze-ville. (Then again, you might enjoy that.) Is staying at home in the winter any better? You decide.....
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
The fates have a way of tossing a pot of cold water on your hottest frontburner right now. Caps are apt to become a bit frustrated with all the false starts and sudden stops in their intimate sex life. But never fear; this too shall pass and before you know it you’ll be cooking on all four burners. Be careful of burn marks....but not of catching on fire.
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
Avoid any arguments with partners this week. Pressure will be placed on any one-to-one relationship and a meeting of the minds may not take place. Any deeply buried unreconciled issues can resurface now but nothing can be gained when you’re under such pressure. Try for a bubble bath for two and see if you can calm the waters ... and lather them up.
PISCES (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
You may prefer to remain slothful and lazy this week. Strenuous exercise may not have the desired effect anyway so give your tootsies a leg up and spare yourself the strains and pains. The day-to-day job may become more onerous than usual as well. It’s hard to be the royal bee when fate conspires to make you a dispensable drone. Plan a revolution this summer, comrade.
