(March 20-April 19)
Much of what's been shocking the world for the past few months involves your birth sign or your primary planet, Mars. This may be resulting in change, clarity, or some chaos. You may know that the great astrological event of our era—Uranus conjunct Eris—is happening in Aries. For its part, Mars, on a long visit to Scorpio, has been provoking some results out of the conjunction. Personally, this could be serving to get you interested in being free. By that I mean participating in your relationships on new terms, able to make ongoing choices about who in this world you're intimate with. The notion that one must give up nearly all close contact with people for the sake of one relationship actually works for very few people. It's altogether reasonable that anyone would choose to coexist on their own terms. If you notice one thing, maybe it will be this: The social rules that pressure people to be certain always seem to be rooted in the past, but really they are held in place by peer pressure. Couples are often more influenced by the group around them than they are by their own values and ethics. Where do you stand on this? Once you're solid with yourself and your partner, or potential partner, it's much easier to do what you want, no matter what the crowd is up to.
