ARIES (March 21-April 19). That thing that’s good

on paper is somehow not working out for you in real life. Once you accept your true feelings about it (instead of dwelling on how you think you should feel), you’ll move on to a better situation. With your winning attitude, you’ll be unstoppable. 

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You have extra stores

of energy to burn, and the projects on your list will give you worthy places to use it. Once you get focused, this will be your most productive week of the year so far. The key is to pace yourself and stay organized. Your ties with other earth signs (Virgo and Capricorn) serve to keep you on track.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The prevailing mood

this week is one of decisiveness. There is no problem. You either accept the reality, or you take action to change it. Because you are either in one mode or the other, there is not enough time to identify a circumstance as problematic. You will gain followers with these winning ways.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). There are hundreds of

things around you that are interesting and worth documenting. Even the inanimate objects will seem alive to you, as your eyes are open to the possibilities. The hard part is in narrowing down your focus to the one that has the most potential to bring you joy. 

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You see the opportunity on

the horizon and realize you’re the one who will be able to run with it, so long as you’re ready. That’s why you’ll spend much of the week preparing for a supposedly impromptu moment in the near future. Research, reading, organization and a key move on Tuesday cinch your success. 

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Too close for comfort is

as detrimental as too distant for connection. Happiness is finding the right level of involvement with others. Independence is a virtue as long as it’s not taken to the point of selfishness. Experiment with your use of personal space. How much do you need around you to feel at peace? 

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ll be drawn to the

larger causes. This week you feel so strongly about your position that it would take too much energy to communicate anything other than what you really think. By Tuesday, you’ll be on a full-blown mission. As soon as you declare what it is, you will start attracting partners for the journey. 

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ll trade your work

for a fair price, and then you’ll labor beyond that, if only because you want things to be done right. Eventually, you’ll be compensated beyond what you expect, so don’t worry too much about the money now. The pride you take in your work will lead to bigger and better things. 

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’d rather be in

harmony with the people around you than be considered special and important. Also, you’d rather be happy than right. This preference will help you lead with compassion and keep your relationships in tip-top shape. Wrap up a project on Tuesday, and then relax and recharge. 

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The theme is: “No

pain, no gain.” The “pain” involved in reaching a goal couldn’t even qualify as pain really; it’s more like discomfort. But because you’re committed to your goals, you’re willing to go through it. Keep reminding yourself of this, and you’ll start to look forward to each small sign of progress. 

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Helen Keller said,

“The highest result of education is tolerance.” Your first instinct is to try to understand others, and this takes more than one experience. There’s someone you’re slowly getting to know, and each time you connect, you’ll learn a little more and in doing so create a peaceful coexistence. 

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The week calls for

you to rise to an occasion. While it is often favorable to follow the path of least resistance, nothing of great value is achieved by always doing what comes most easily. You have to work at it when you don’t feel like working at it — that’s the part that separates you from average achievers.
