ARIES (March 21-April 19). We are social

creatures. The feeling of belonging is essential to human existence. You’ll give a great deal of time and energy to others, and this will be neither easy nor immediately gratifying, but it will be absolutely worthwhile in what it gives back to you: the pride and confidence that come with being a giver. 

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’re here to love

and be loved. The who, what and where are of particular interest (of course), and you’ll spend much of your week in preparation for a certain rendezvous. Your purpose will feel clear. Your gut will tell you that you’re on to something, so follow through without hesitation. 

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You don’t need a reason

to smile — you carry it with you all the time. It’s in your essence. In your soul, you are cheerful, and this is what the world is responding to this week. People want you near — you are so loved. Protect your joy because it’s a precious commodity. 

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You will think of ideas

that might be helpful to your loved ones and present them without expectation of reward. If none of your ideas is acted upon, they still will feel the love of your intention. You make a difference. Be confident in this knowledge. 

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Walt Whitman said, “If

anything is sacred, the human body is sacred.” You’ll treat it as such, being attentive to its needs and doing what feels natural. This week that will involve making a dietary change. With a little tweaking, you’ll come up with the perfect health-supporting program. 

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Some look at the scene

and declare that there is little to be done about it. Others roll up their sleeves. You are in the latter category, and there’s much you will see this week to put you in sleeve-rolling mode. There will be outside factors to challenge you and obstruct your path, so do not create extra impediments. 

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Your high energy level

will make the tasks of the week much easier. Once you get over your initial resistance, it will be smooth sailing all the way. Even though you’re a social person, Thursday and Friday bring crowds that may cause you stress. Seek tranquility on Saturday. 

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). One definition of a

best friend is a person who knows how crazy you are and still chooses to be seen with you in public. Seriously, you won’t be too influenced by the public eye this week. You’ll be having too much fun with those close to you to care about what the others think. 

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). It’s said that too

many cooks spoil the soup. But what if each cook very respectfully brings his or her own ingredient to the party? You’ll accept the contributions but stay in charge of how much of each goes into the soup. Command the soup. It’s your soup. 

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). When you want to

blame someone, you will praise that person instead. Why? Because you’re growing in spirit, and that means being the bigger person. The bigger person tries to see beyond the immediate situation. The bigger person has compassion. Bonus: The more compassionate you are the better you feel.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You will crave

excitement, and you’ll absolutely get what you seek, but not at first. Up front, there will be logistics, frustrations and waiting in line (which ranks among your least favorite things to do). But in the end, the experience you buy will be worth what you paid for it. 

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The beauty of having

another person close by who loves you very much is not lost on you. Whether it’s kin or a sweetheart, you’ll bask in the affection. On Wednesday and Thursday, business will go down like a race. Those who take the swiftest action will make the most money.
