ARIES (March 21-April 19). How would you like to  hold a candle to a dollar bill or turn it into confetti in the paper shredder? You wouldn’t. And yet, some of the extra stuff you have that you don’t need one bit is taking up real estate that you’re paying for. To feel rich, get into those storage units, attics, closets and garages, and rid yourself of baggage. 

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The world of paper can be daunting. That’s why piles stack up of mail you don’t know what to do with and other printed materials of significance. You’ll get in there and deal with it on Tuesday, and by Friday you’ll feel better about the way your life looks on paper. Saturday syncs it all up with real life. 

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). For most of the week, your goals will organize your life, if only because the pursuit of them will take up so much of it that you won’t have time for superfluous ventures. But Thursday through Saturday, the opportunity to relax and have some fun will come along, and it’s not to be missed. Laughter will renew your spirit. 

CANCER (June 22-July 22). It all gets easier when you can compartmentalize. On a material level, this is about having a place for everything and knowing where everything goes. On an emotional level, it’s about sorting through events, memories and realities and organizing them in a way that points you toward your dream of a good life. 

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). All humans have the same basic needs but different ways of trying to get them met. Use this as your guiding principle, and you’ll be more patient, loving, compassionate and genuinely helpful to those around you. Also, you’ll make money. Clients and customers will want to deal with you and only you. 

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You think you know what you can do, and then you find out, on a perfectly normal day like Monday, that you can do so much more. The best part is that someone sees this — a real cheerleader type, who will encourage you to do more. At the end of the week, you’ll feel like a different person from who you were at the beginning.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). There is no such thing as confidence without work. You gain confidence by doing something well repeatedly. The confidence that comes before you’ve done the work is borrowed, if not fake. It may do just fine. It may be enough to get you into a situation where you get the chance to work. Just know the difference.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Some say attention is the essence of love, and it would be hard to refute. Don’t you give your long and intense focus to the things and people you love the most? You certainly will this week. And the others in the periphery may notice and want a little more. They probably deserve it, too. You have enough to spread around.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Don’t let the sun outshine you, because you are very bright — indeed, incandescent! What is the cause of this lift? You like someone, and someone likes you. This new state of affairs makes you see yourself differently. It bathes all you do in a gorgeous light. It makes it easy to laugh. 

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You are wise. You are effective. Believe it, and you’ll eliminate confusion and act decisively this week. Note: It’s not just who you know; it’s also who you’re related to. Shake that family tree. Relatives can connect you with work, money and friends. There’s nothing shady about this. Use your connections. 

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). It’s been said that the fastest way to end a war is to lose it. You are so averse to conflict that you may lose on purpose just to get it over with, and that’s not a bad move. In fact, it will free you up for success in a creative realm. All in all, you see opportunity in what others might consider to be stressful situations.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). For a worker bee like you, there’s nothing worse than feeling obligated to have some fun. You sense which commitment to evade and which to clutch with white-knuckled determination. This should help you avoid pointless work and keep you on track with a long-held desire that will soon be fulfilled.
