Mars in Aries’ month is so frenetic: No matter your chart, the energy cycle runs in overdrive. Impatience, arrogance, and anger dominate negotiations. A sense of urgency encourages action for its own sake — never a good idea. We all will be subject to periods of righteous indignation — best handled by actual physical effort. Double up on gym workouts for the next couple of months. Postpone delicate matters. Avoid being the bull in the china shop of your own life. Chill. For a personal reading, e-mail

TAURUS  (April 20-May 20)
Your spiritual nature faces challenge. Having nothing to do with religious habits, your spiritual gifts combine mental and emotional traits. Are you forgiving and forgetting? Able to let go of what fails to serve you? Capable of finding vision and serenity in quiet moments? Know that you are the child of a loving Father.

GEMINI  (May 21-June 20)
This month could be hot with promise. Scheduling rules: Leave dangling situations to return to at a later date. Nothing is solid, which encourages doubt. But fear — “false evidence appearing real” — is not necessary. Exciting new beginnings with fresh ambitions, friends, and group associations empower you. Just take a breath.

CANCER  (June 21-July 22)
They have mistaken your kindness for weakness, and there will be hell to pay. Yet the crab is quiet. Success may be as simple as waiting it out — keeping your head while everybody around explodes. Your native amusement with the machinations of war can save your sanity and provide the ultimate power trip. The last one standing? Bliss.

LEO  (July 23-Aug. 22)
Master teachers emerge from the bushes to gift you with their individual wisdoms. A trip or exposure to a foreign culture renews your spirit as you realize, happily, that there is so much more to know. Mantra chant: I know that I know nothing. Say it with a giggle, as new thoughts will have you living large. It’s all so much better than you think.

VIRGO  (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Saturn the stern taskmaster now smiles upon you, as your services to a group begin to affect progress. Networking that seemed a chore last month has become exciting, because a creative process is emerging. A turbulent time will give rise to your true passion, and you experience a renewal of confidence. A speculative venture seems impossible, but wait ...

LIBRA  (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Whatever Libran skills you have must be deployed now, in the interest of harmony. In the commercial, one kid gets to cut the peanut butter sandwich; the other gets to choose. You must be the wise parent in skirmishes that arise. Consider allies as cranky toddlers and lovingly distract them until a more rational time. Keep a sense of humor.

SCORPIO  (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Wage war on attitudes and habits that have formed recent health routines. You are off course and have no time to slow down. Organize like mad and have patience with underlings; you’re going too fast for them to keep up. Psychological breakthroughs contribute to impatience with others’ issues. Don’t kill anything.

SAGITTARIUS  (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Disturbing domestic pressures demand radical change in the modus operandi. Emotional reactions of others may slow you down, but keep chanting, “This is none of my business,” and they will eventually take their drama elsewhere. It’s a great month for sophisticated play; get in touch with the inner kid again. Speculate. Set positive goals.

CAPRICORN  (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Emotional rage is a good thing. First, it’s a great motivator. We tend to be willing to march into hell for a heavenly cause with righteous indignation. Next, it demands such intense expenditures of energy that we’re able to accomplish great deeds. Channel your sturdy, late-blooming administrative qualities and be the goat on top. Now is the time.

AQUARIUS  (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Drive somewhere with an enticing horizon. Brain waves readjust with only one degree of latitude. In order to think it all through, you must keep moving; contemplation is often your freeway. Consider upgrading communication equipment — a new cell phone maybe? Siblings have excellent input; maintain the dialogue. A community beckons.

PISCES  (Feb. 19-March 20)
Within a few weeks, you could feel the brokest and the richest you have ever been. Sudden endings demand new beginnings. Don’t panic. Reorganization turns up new, far-superior solutions. You tend to undervalue certain key elements that can be more significant in the future. Give everything an audition. Deliberate slowly.

ARIES  (March 21-April 19)
All is proceeding according to the natural order, and you can do nothing but speed it up. What if the farmer tugged at his little shoots in May to force the crop? Unnecessary disaster. Hold your horses, your tongue, and your impulses. A better way will come soon. Refine your image with a new self-awareness, but no ego. Chill.
