ARIES (March 21-April 19). It’s said that power corrupts, but being powerless doesn’t necessarily mean being pure of heart. The important part is to try to understand where people really are emotionally and morally. Stay observant and ask questions that will help you understand where they are coming from.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You are attracted to someone, and you can’t say why. What is the irresistible draw at the heart of this? It’s complicated and multilayered, to be sure! Don’t waste time trying to figure it out this week — just go with it. It’s going to move you in unforeseeable ways that could never be duplicated elsewhere.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). When you hear the same message over and over again, you get desensitized to it. Different colors make you hear it anew. There’s something you learned in your childhood that applies now, but you’ll have to give it a new context. If you can do that, you are truly among the wise.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You radiate confidence in yourself and in your abilities, but somehow it doesn’t come off as arrogance. Congrats. This is a difficult line to toe, and you’ll have a better time with it than many others. Use your newfound power to do the good in the world you’ve been thinking about. Truly, it won’t get done without you.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It might seem that every time someone has to make a sacrifice — take one for the team and the like — that someone is you. Your willingness to make everything all right for all involved will eventually catch up with you in the way that good karma always does. However, in the meantime, you should stand up for yourself.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The one who decides he’s going to be important will usually find a way to make himself just that. You have a slightly different definition of “important.” For you, it has little to do with exterior cues and validation. You know and respect what matters to you. That’s why you’ll be both happy and important.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). This week is for remembering how things were, recognizing your growth and projecting yourself into the future of your envisioning. You’ll notice that people can be fickle and have compassion, too — they have their own reasons for the change of mind. If you’re calm and nonreactive, you’ll make the best of it.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Every other age you’ve been is still somewhere inside you. You’ll be reminded of this as you connect with very youthful, if not immature, feelings on Thursday and Friday. This weekend someone will notice and appreciate the kid in you and will very much want to be your playmate.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Art is choices. In order to embrace the art of living, you’ve made very conscious decisions about what to do and what not to do. You’ve given up quite a lot to get where you are, and every sacrifice you made was worthwhile. Well, almost every sacrifice. In a related story, this week you’ll right a past wrong.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Friends will offer you wild suggestions this week. Some of them are tests, some are challenges, and some are just playful banter. In any case, to follow through would be daring, and that’s exactly what you are: daring. You’re willing to risk, change and disrupt the status quo.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You never want to make yourself feel bigger by making another feel smaller. That’s why you carefully assess the feelings of everyone in the room before you make a move. By the same token, when others get upset, don’t be too quick to try to remedy the situation. Model grace, and they will rise to the occasion.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The hard work this week won’t be the kind that requires muscle strength or brainpower. It’s the work that requires you to humble yourself and let your ego take the hit. The one with the lowest profile will rise up and conquer. Give up chasing symbols of success, and devote yourself to attaining true contentment.
