Venus retrogrades in Aries and backs into Pisces before redirecting back into Aries by the end of the month. Whew! Do you know what you want? Will you get what you want? Will you love it when you get it? Who the heck knows!

ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
Long suppressed secrets will find a surprising way of popping up at inopportune times and in a very public way. Though it may not feel especially comfortable, it can be cathartic and ultimately good (though it may not feel so good at the time). Get ready to spin your message, Aries. You may feel a bit exposed but you will certainly draw a crowd!
TAURUS (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
Light gossip among friends can lead Taureans into all sorts of mischief for the next few weeks. Tasty tidbits fly and things can easily be blown out of proportion. There is a buzz that makes one thing lead to another and another. Find ways of cutting through the opinion to get to the facts. Find out the who, what, when, where and why. But how? That is the question!
GEMINI (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
Money and its intoxicating power will drive many of your decisions. The lure of lucre impacts how hard you work and how much time you spend cultivating certain relationships. There will be times when you need to expend more resources than expected with less tangible gain. How will it all pan out, Gemini? Will you rule the world or will it rule you?
CANCER (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
Prepare for a few false starts as your efforts to reach out and connect to others takes more time and effort than you anticipate. But delays in this case are not bad, Cancer. It means that you should polish your presentation and practice, practice, practice. Experiment with new approaches and techniques. But interviews in the nude should not be considered.
LEO (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
There is intrigue aplenty as undercover sexy liaisons become exposed in a big way. The Leo cat is out of the bag. Good. There was too much stress going on behind the scenes. It is holding you back from doing what you need to do to be happy. Now that the curtain is open you can free yourself of any restrictions and do your thing... whatever that thing is.
VIRGO (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
Virgos who are looking for a relationship can find it in the most unusual and surprising places. It is time to expand your search area and see who is waiting for you by the bar. Of course, there are those who are perfectly content in their current partnerships. If so, try to spruce and juice it up to keep life engaged and interesting. Err or is it trim and squeeze?
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
How often have you held your tongue and not said what needed to be said on the job? Too often, I suspect. And it may be especially hard to keep yourself from commenting on the absurdities of the workplace now. Libras may now have limited patience and will struggle to persevere. Sounds like a great excuse for a vacation.... or a very long lunch. Hint. Hint.
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
Scorpios become bon vivants and can be tempted to spend lavishly of sorted and assorted good times. Whoo hoo! Go to the limit and see how far your good times can travel. Be joyous, free thinking and absurdly generous. Of course all play and no work will leave folks scratching their heads and asking “Who are you and what have you done with Scorpio?”
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
Your private and public life meet head on. Not only are you out in front of the crowd, you are given a rare opportunity to meet high and mighty influentials who can lend you a hand. Sagittarians need to find useful ways to monitor and maneuver through a minefield of social protocols so they can maximize this opening. Sigh. Isn’t that always the challenge?
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
Don’t even think of hiding the facts from partners now. There is nothing you can do to prevent the truth from leaking out and causing slippery situations. While it may be a bit disconcerting, it is also ultimately a good thing because you cannot keep any secrets. Capricorns love too much and may be wearing their hearts on their sleeves. Pack the paper towel.
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
If money is the root of all evil, Aquarians manage to get to the root of all things. The strength or weakness of your finances will dictate how liberated or restricted you feel. The cosmos advises you to rein in your expenses, monitor your partner’s spending, avoid grand, platonic gestures of generosity and save a little for a rainy day. That is a tall order for you now!
PISCES (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
It’s all about you. Pisces are in the limelight. As you grab all the attention, you will need to find successful ways to tie up the loose ends so they don’t tangle and trip you up. Find balance between the nit picky aspects of your job and your long term life goals. Is there conflict? Are you being dragged down by inconsequential tasks? Soar and leave the crawling to the mice.
