ARIES (March 21-April 19). A cheerful demeanor will be second nature to you. You already belong, so you don’t have to do anything to be a part of the group. You can assume this, even if you are going into an entirely new situation. Doing so will make everyone around you feel at ease. 

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The words “me too” will be among the most beautiful that you will hear this week. Also awesome: Someone will pick up an expense or reward you with a bonus. The only thing to watch out for are ulterior motives, perhaps your own. Be clear about what you want out of each situation. 

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The most important agreements are the ones you make with yourself. This week you will bravely expand those agreements outside of what you really think you can do. The bigger you think the easier life will get. You will forget about the details that are bogging you down and focus on what really matters. 

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You are in danger of being swept off of your feet. If single, keep your plans flexible so you’re available to love. If not, do avoid that full-grown problem child you know. The latter part of the week will bring a personal assistant (of sorts) to handle the logistics so you’re free to make snap executive decisions. 

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Relationships spark from a state of nonexistence and then are constantly either evolving or devolving. There are some people in your life you would like to create more with, while other relationships have run their course. Your conscious efforts in this regard will make an enormous difference in how the week will play out.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). This is weird, but it really will happen: The more you take on the less stressful life will become. You’ll push yourself hard and arrive at a new level of competence in the skill you’ve been trying to master. This is a long road, but the decisions you make this week will be key to your process and will affect where you land.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Relax. A leisurely approach to life will help you stumble onto the path of least resistance. The easy way will happen to be the best way for all involved. The latter part of the week will bring an old (and very dear) project back to life if you allow it. This time things will be different. Gentleness and time will bring things to order. 

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Be nice to the bridge. If you burn the bridge, behind you there will still be ways to get back — you could swim, build a boat or hitch a ride on a plane. But all of these ways are uncertain and time consuming. You don’t want to owe anyone. By Friday, you’ll find yourself in a much better position. 

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You feel somewhat responsible for the happiness of those you love. There’s no reason to hold back any advice you have that might help to enhance and augment their well-being, but do keep in mind that timing is everything. The contradictions will seem to stand in defiance before you, daring you to make sense of them. This cannot be done with force or hard-line thinking. 

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Expect applause. You deserve it; you’re magnificent (as the sun is reminding you these days). Ward against self-consciousness by promoting the people and causes dear to you. Celebrate a lucky break on Friday, even if you haven’t quite done all the work yet — you will! 

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Difficult tasks are just a series of easy steps. They’re a really long series, to be sure, but since you’re only doing one at a time, there is little difference between choosing a difficult task and an easy one. You’ll be melting down obstacles and, in the process, creating quite an impression. 

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Gear up for extra attention, because the universe is ready to promote your cause. This may accompany your efforts to get a raise, to raise your status in a group or something else. Someone who has made a mistake will apologize on Friday. In accepting the apology, you will see this person in a more flattering light than before.
