Venus Calls for Loving Words
You don't have to believe in witches and magic to know that words have power and that people can essentially cast spells on one another with what they say. As Venus moves away from Mars and into a difficult arrangement with Saturn, relationships will be vulnerable to gossip and the ill opinions of others. Steer clear. Speak only kindness.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). The thing that's working will continue to work for a time, and when it doesn't anymore, you'll move on. Why worry about all that now? The joy comes from concentrating on the part of the story you're currently in.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Just because someone has accomplished the task doesn't mean he or she can teach it well. Seek an instructor who not only knows the material but also is gifted at teaching.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). It will feel like your work is at the mercy of the good opinion of others. This is a lie. Your work has an integrity that is totally independent of anything anyone else thinks or says. So soldier on toward completion.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). In this age of narcissism and over-sharing, many people won't show the kind of restraint necessary to build a mystery. The silent guy in the corner may very well be the one who comes off as the most eloquent.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You like to speak your mind without worrying how it will be received, and yet it's rare that you can find a person with a strong enough sense of self and a good enough sense of humor not to take your pure outspokenness personally.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You'll make a difference with people who really want to interact with you. Even if the difference you make is something extremely practical or seemingly ordinary, this is, in a way, living the dream. Celebrate.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Some say that great ideas always start out as controversial and that if it doesn't start an argument, it's not great. On the other hand, the fact that people are fighting over an idea doesn't necessarily mean it's great either.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Trusting a person allows you to relax and be yourself. But you also like the edge you get when you're not sure of the relationship. Today, if you trust someone but still want to impress him or her, it'll be the best of both worlds.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Maybe it's not the first thing you think of when you think of the word "fun," but you will actually enjoy activities that connect you to your beliefs and strengthen your faith, in whatever form that might take.
