ARIES (March 20-April 19)
It would be wonderful if people would want us just because we want them, though if your astrology ever suggested that is possible, it’s right now. However, the genie who grants those wishes can unleash mayhem, and you would be wise to direct your desire as something with real power that can have real effects. The deeper your understanding, the more likely you will be to open up possibilities that you really want to live with.
TAURUS (April 19-May 20)
You can have some truly unusual conversations this weekend, honest in a way that you’ve never had before. This is the territory that most people want and that terrifies nearly everyone. Be brave, and speak your mind, describe your desires, ask what others want, and most of all pay attention. Listen for the connection. There will be odd, unusual and really beautiful places to explore. Just be prepared to bring some courage, and to be encouraging of others.
GEMINI (May 20-June 21)
You may think that talking about sex is not sexy. That’s the perception anyway, especially if alcohol is involved. I would say that talking about sex is the opening into the more interesting sexual experiences, the ones where there is a high degree of mutuality. Of course, anyone interested in using another person to get off won’t have much to say or much to ask. If you want contact, and if you’re showing up because you’re curious, ask and share.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
Your worst insecurities may be acting up, but I suggest you not let that make you feel any more insecure. As you go through the next few days, take it easy on yourself and play the role of observer rather than participant. More than anything, observe your own life, and how different people and influences lead you to feel. It may take a week or so, though the weather is about to clear up and you will see that it was silly to have wasted your energy on what, in the end, did not matter.
LEO (July 22-Aug. 23)
Sex is about empathy. It’s about understanding. Seek understanding and contact and you will expand your erotic possibilities. Feel where people are coming from and you will be able to speak to them in a language they understand. Writing is especially helpful now, and useful because unlike with spoken words, you have the opportunity to revise before you make a statement. Revision is just that — seeing once again. That means seeing yourself, and whoever you care about.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sep. 22)
Sex is not raw emotion. It can seem that way at times, yet the interplay of one’s feelings with those of another person is an intricate dance. It’s both the product of long evolution and the way we keep growing and learning. I suggest you temper any passion you may be feeling. I don’t mean suppress, I mean use in small, potent doses, seeing where each one takes you and then indulging a little more.
LIBRA (Sept. 22-Oct. 23)
You are under the most beautiful astrology for the unexpected encounter, the surprise meeting, the spontaneous turn of events. This has been going on for a while; how have you responded to those opportunities for spontaneous engagement with others? Something about that might bristle you, or make you feel cheap and easy. If so, be grateful for that. It’s no fun at all being difficult and expensive.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 22)
Your fantasies may be leading you in about six different directions. Keep dreaming — it’s a beautiful thing to do. At a certain point there will be a translation process into reality. Neither fantasy nor reality is better than the other. But they are different, and they are both necessary. If you respect the difference and honor the right place of both, you can have a lot of fun and make some deep discoveries about yourself as one translates into the other.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 22)
Desire is a potent force, and I suggest you direct yours with precision and intention. Yes, it’s fun to want people and experiences willy-nilly. That’s not the message of your charts right now, however. Your desire is more powerful than you may recognize, and it’s likely to get results where you direct your will. Therefore, make sure you are sincere. Come from your heart and your soul, so that your lust and passion are well-guided.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 20)
You may have recently unleashed some kind of social fury but don’t worry, it’s not going to affect your ability to get dates in a negative way. What you’ve shown is that you’re not afraid of controversy, which is a sign of real courage. However, now is the time to remember that discretion is indeed the better part of valor. Focus on fun rather than power games. You have figured out who your real friends are — invite them over and get cozy.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19)
Do you really want to get married? Or do you want to celebrate life? That is the question of your chart. The thing about marriage is that it’s difficult to get out of, and it does not offer much in real terms. But this is not marriage; it’s the concept of the thing, which is not necessary to connect with others in a deep and meaningful way. You don’t need to hold a prospective lover to the standard of a prospective spouse. Really.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
The planets are doing an exciting dance in your chart, the overall theme of which is that sex actually matters. It makes a difference in your life, and to the people you connect with. Sex is meaningful, and it’s meaningful in ways that you may not have thought of. Some ideas are coming to light. You may have never thought of them before. Your values are changing in ways you may have never expected. Take a ride and see where the adventure leads you.
