Play with new looks, Pisces!

Q Scopes

Venus in Pisces inspires ethereal, sensitive visions, and Mars in Capricorn helps us to focus that productively. Both planets aspecting Saturn, Uranus, Eris, and Chiron can help solve ethnic and communal divisions. Take on creative challenges knowing that they will be more work than they seem, but with potentially huge benefits.

ARIES (March 20 - April 19): If some brilliant new inspiration isn't helping you see your way forward, an art show or movie you normally wouldn't attend could kick start your imagination. If you're feeling really bogged down, go to your boss or other experts for help.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20): You're unusually distracted by concerns about the future. Take advantage of that to think ahead a little more than usual. Accepting a mental challenge from your boss will help you to focus more productively on those concerns.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20): You could sleep your way to the top, but everyone will know how you worked your way up by working it down. Sublimating your sexual energy into hard work will move you ahead with a lot more respect.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22): Being "too" careful of what you say is like playing "whack-a-mole" inside your head. The more you worry, the more something will pop out. Just be discreet and sensible. If your partner or friends let something slip, simply grin and bear it.

LEO (July 23 - August 22): Some work-related outfit - mechanic's coveralls? three-piece suit? waitress' uniform? - will make you look even sexier, as if you need the help. Getting into arguments just for the fun of it can build your sex appeal or settle something important - probably not both.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22): Your partner seems to be on another planet. Try playing with that. A part of you loves the magic and mystery, baffling though it can be. Relationships are about healing and working together, not competition or logic.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22): Nightmares and paranoia can be channeled into artistry. Try working with your anxieties creatively. Digging into your family and cultural background will help you to understand, express, and liberate yourself from those demons.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21): Your best intentions and your mouth are conspiring to get you into trouble. If you can channel that "helpfulness" into some nominally impersonal artistic work, it could be brilliant. Otherwise, it may just be seen as unwanted criticism.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 20): Your new ideas appear to shake up the authorities, but with some work and professionalism you can get your innovations accepted. Focus on issues of value and community to help get your ideas across.

CAPRICORN (December 21 - January 19): Work on articulating the big ideas you've been struggling with. Let a friend play devil's advocate, as some friendly arguments can help you sharpen your notions and practice stating them more effectively.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18): What's the most important part of sex? Each person has different answers at different times, and you need to rethink it. Meditative exercises like yoga or tai chi will help you to focus mind, body, and erotic priorities.

PISCES (February 19 - March 19): Play with new looks, the wilder, the better. Your partner (or shopping companion) may be very critical, but use the feedback for perfecting your new image. Your instincts point accurately to your partner's hidden discontent. Friends can help negotiate those problems.
