Q-Scopes by Jack Fertig
Q-Scopes by Jack Fertig

ARIES (March 20 - April 19): Sexual opportunities may be more than even you can handle, and most of them will prove to be false leads or awkward encounters. Try to hold back on impulse, and work on sharpening your instincts and your standards!

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20): Relationship problems that come to the surface won't be solved this month, but at least talk them out and get what's bothering you off your chest. Weather this storm and your partnership could end up a lot stronger.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20): Being klutzy can be cute and endearing - when it's not outright dangerous. Be especially careful when driving or using heavy machinery, but a simple spill or trip could land you in loving arms.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22): You won't get far ahead on new projects in the next three weeks, but you can still be very productive. Revise and improve what you've already done. Look at ways to clean up your workspace; seek and welcome constructive criticism.

LEO (July 23 - August 22): Stymied in your efforts to reach out and play? Stay in and have fun making changes around the house or exploring new culinary techniques. Need suggestions? Find a recipe for Iranian _fessanjan_, or prepare an Indonesian _rijsttafel_ and invite friends for dinner.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22): Any little disagreement can open doors to argument and confusion. Some family matter lies at the root of your unease. Meditation or dream-journaling can help you get a clearer handle on what the problem really is.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22): Recent good news about money is likely to lead to a let-down - not a disaster, but something that's not as good as it looked at first. Still, if this disappointment pushes you to better financial planning and discipline, it will prove a blessing after all!

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21): To some degree, we are defined by our work. You're near a pinnacle of success and may wonder who you are - both inside and outside that position - and what challenges will matter to you now. Those questions will take time to answer.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 20): Recent challenges have pushed you to hold a hard line in important arguments, but inner doubts and your basic nature rebel against simple doctrinaire positions. Be flexible. Sometimes the only way to be right is to admit that you're wrong.

CAPRICORN (December 21 - January 19): Which of your friends can really be trusted? Someone close is nursing a hidden passion for you, probably sexual, but perhaps treacherous. Be certain of who's watching your back, and why!

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18): Love or career? Each has its own set of problems now. A good partner should support your ambitions, even when they waver. But do you absolutely need a partner? Good friends and faith in your standards are better than an undependable relationship.

PISCES (February 19 - March 19): Philosophical doubts are clouding your career goals, but such confusion is the first step to clarity. This can be a good time to think about what you really want in the long run and to revise your goals before making important commitments.
