Keep it light, Sagittarius

Mercury in Leo trine to Eris provokes bold partisan assertions. There's healthy room for that, but it can go overboard. Mercury then opposes Jupiter, Neptune and Chiron in Aquarius, leading through confusion, perhaps to improvement in ideals and philosophy. You stand a better chance of improving yourself, not others.
ARIES (March 20 - April 19): Culture clash can give you a better sense of who you are and who you're not, but that will be challenged again when you reassess political ideals. Confusion and change are necessary steps to growth. Just walk through it.
TAURUS (April 20 - May 20): Pride in home and family can clash with honesty about sameness. Ask yourself the hard questions that have never been answered. Your insights could lead to reconsidering career goals. New answers there would also be helpful!
GEMINI (May 21- June 20): Your brilliant ideas can be very helpful in political long-range planning, but they will start up arguments over principles. A real world approach may be needed to get idealist notions down to earth, but grounding will not come easily.
CANCER (June 21- July 22): Know your worth and hang out with the right people in your profession, those whose level you should be at. Strutting your stuff in the sack - maybe some exhibitionism? - can open up new channels for fantasy and exploration.
LEO (July 23 - August 22): The simplest observation can quickly become an ideological or academic thesis. That could be good, clarifying your own sense of where you stand. In relationships, however, your position may baffle you. Enjoy the mystery; it won't last long.
VIRGO (August 23 - September 22): That buzz in your brain, perhaps about mortality or sexual identity, could prove enlightening. See where it leads. Worries about health should motivate you to better exercise and hygiene. (There's always room for improvement!)
LIBRA (September 23 - October 22): Playful banter with friends can lead you into a situation, pushing you to take sides, or you might be able to negotiate a common ground between opposing camps. Solutions may defy logic. Creativity and intuition serve much better!
SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21): You can make an effective go-between for colleagues and bosses. Being clear about which side you're on will make you more effective. Your focus on career can be a distraction from problems at home. Your distraction could even be the problem.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 20): You need a forum for your opinion. Keep it light and playful and more people will listen. Appeal to emotions more than logic. Sticking to ideals and principles may be safer than citations that you're "reasonably sure" of.
CAPRICORN (December 21 - January 19): Leaning on your own ethnic identity, or your ethnic preferences, can help you strut your hot stuff. Sexual preference for a certain skin color may be racist, or not. It's all in the context and attitude. Checking your own couldn't hurt.
AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18): Arguments with your partner are inflamed by a sense of competition. Remember, you're on the same side! Together you can be unbeatable. Self-doubt can be a good thing if it leads you to better answers.
PISCES (February 19 - March 19): If you must argue with colleagues, make sure it's about something important; remember you're ultimately on the same team. Is it really something at work that's bothering you? Take time out, and meditate to find the real problem.Jack Fertig, a professional astrologer since 1977, is available for personal and business consultations in person in San Francisco, or online everywhere.
