ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’ll be involved in an interesting controversy. It’s hard to know where to take a stand — there is little evidence for either side. Maybe it’s not so important to have an opinion on this one. If you choose neutrality, you won’t regret it. One sign of intelligence is to be comfortable in a state of not knowing.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You wish you could choose the ways in which you are tested, but you can’t. Also, there is no way to study up. Like any test, the surprise aspect of it is part of the challenge. Take it one question at a time, and know that whatever you don’t get this time around, you’ll pick up later. 

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). A friend on the outside is a valuable thing to have. With the help of this person, you’ll get an overview of the scene that you could only see before from a limited, personal point of view. The broader vantage will bring about a new awareness of your role and of how to use your position to the best advantage. 

CANCER (June 22-July 22). It’s not the big problems that get in the way of romance; it’s the little habits and routines that blunt love’s edge. That’s why it’s important to be playful whenever you get the chance. Seek excitement and newness. Make a conscious effort to keep things fresh.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Square peg and round hole? No worries. You’ll make the necessary adaptations. The best part is, you don’t even take the time to complain first. That’s what sets you apart from the rest. You simply get going and stay with it until you’ve made it work. This is part of the reason you’ll be a favorite among your colleagues. 

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). This is a tricky week. You’ll be exceptionally lucky, and you must be extra careful about how you use your good fortune. Before you state your wishes, really think about what it would be like to have them. Is there something you’re not factoring in? Getting your heart’s desire can be just as tragic as not getting it. 

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The list of what you want to accomplish this week is quite long, but you’re short on motivation. The trick is to involve another person. Who inspires you? Who is both a muse and a cheerleader? That’s the one you need on your team. If you don’t know such a person, this is an ideal time for branching out. 

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). In these times, very few people understand the elegance of privacy as you do. If you needed another good reason not to post mundane details on social media, you could take this cue from Albert Einstein: “The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science.” 

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Don’t be fooled by the daring individual who commands the attention of the room — he or she may be more afraid than anyone else. Assume this is the case, and proceed as you would with any emotionally fragile person. You’ll be deeply appreciated for the sweet care you give. 

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’re powerful this week, and when you visualize a desired outcome, it’s likely to happen. So consciously decide how you want an interaction to go before you embark. Also know that in most instances, you’ll be the one setting the mood. They’ll follow what you project. 

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). For you to be as vibrant as you can be, you need a balance of giving and taking. There’s a reason why you feel more alive around certain people and less energized around others. The energy vampires may never change, but at least you can protect yourself before you expose yourself to them. Awareness is key. 

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’ll be thinking about your role within a community, current and future. You’re not entirely happy with the way things are fitting now, but you can always choose a different role. You’ll do so consciously this week. You will follow a new model, make new rules for yourself and stick with your plan.
