"Occupy your mind, Cancer!"

Mars in Gemini is loosening lips, and, squaring Uranus, he will have us all blurting out things we'll wish we hadn't! Keep your ears open and your mouth shut - or otherwise occupied. Venus is in Leo, so taking pride in taste and discretion can save you lots of trouble.

ARIES (March 20 - April 19): To avoid blurting out secrets and betraying trust, let it all be about you! Hold the spotlight and dazzle your friends with your charm and playfulness. If you do get time alone, some creative writing and journaling can offer surprising insights.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20): Resisting the impulse to spend can be hard, but stay within a budget. Friends will egg you on to some fabulous purchase that you'll regret. What would Mother say? In this case, she'd probably be right.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20): Your mouth is even more dangerous than usual. Whether you want it or not, you have the ear of bosses and authorities. Running your ideas by a sister first will help you make them more presentable.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22): Occupy your mind to keep your mouth out of trouble. Visit museums and art-house films, and keep the discussion impersonal, discussing aesthetics instead of mutual acquaintances. Whatever you say will be heard far and wide!

LEO (July 23 - August 22): Talking about sex could actually keep you out of trouble, as then you won't be gossiping about friends. Even better than discussing sex, continue your research on different techniques and styles. You'll have plenty of opportunity!

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22): Your partner will quickly tire of your complaints about work, and your workplace is no place to kvetch about your love life! Hiding out could be your best bet, even with your partner exploring nonverbal communication.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22): You can enjoy great popularity now, either for your savage wit or for your valuable community service. The latter will also offer you surprising inspirations.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21): OK, you're hot; we all know you're hot; and worst of all, you know you're hot. Now relax and try to have fun without needing to prove anything. You can't play anyone else's instrument while you're tooting your own horn.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 20): Arguments, especially at home, are likely to go badly for you. Artistic and literary diversions will help keep you out of trouble. Those from the lands of your family background can provide surprising insights.

CAPRICORN (December 21 - January 19): Showing off and learning new sexual techniques can prove very educational for all involved. But are you communicating anything in your love-making besides physical prowess? Take time out to talk about real intimacy, not just erotic gymnastics.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18): What you value in your relationships cannot be sufficiently expressed with money and gifts. Efforts to do so now will just prove awkward and expensive. A gesture of affection - a hug, a kiss, or a kind word - is still best.

PISCES (February 19 - March 19): You're full of surprises even you don't know about. Conversations with your family can expose talents that will prove helpful at work. Be sure to discuss family medical history. What you learn now could save you lots of grief.
