ARIES (March 21-April 19). A limitation will be lifted, and suddenly many more options are open to you. With all the possibilities, you may feel anxious about your next move. Existentialist philosopher Soren Kierkegaard said, “Anxiety is the dizziness of freedom.” Once you get centered on your purpose, the dizziness will abate. 

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Certain friends of yours are always more comfortable when the attention is flowing to them. They may love you very much, and yet they are also too jealous and insecure to allow for a healthy balance of give and take. Because they are not likely to change, decide how much you’re willing to give, and stick to that plan. 

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). When people mean well, you can feel it. You give them a pass when they don’t exactly hit the mark, because you know their intentions are true — and also because you’d appreciate the same leeway when you make minor mistakes. We’re only human! Your graciousness will win you admirers this week. 

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Lately you’ve been in the habit of giving people more than they deserve. It’s a trend that will serve you well for a few more days, but on Wednesday, consider cutting back the generosity. It will give you a break, and it will give them a chance to get stronger and build the confidence that comes with self-sufficiency. 

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your influences will matter greatly. Your path will change based on how you feel about the others around you and how much you believe in the benefit of their actions. You’ll be imitating those who have what you want in hopes that you will gain similar advantages. Your ability to duplicate a good plan will work wonders.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Beware of the tendency to be satisfied with the wins made by your loved ones, friends and teammates. Though it is lovely to be able to delight in the success of others, vicarious living will rob you of your own sweet victories. This is your week to implement a plan to engineer the change you wish for. 

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The argument you’ve been having on and off over the past few weeks is now getting old. Sometimes you don’t even feel up to taking your own side in the fight. Because it’s clear that no one is going to win this, how about you just drop it? Thursday will open a window of good fortune in the area of relationships. 

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You can keep jealousy at bay by loving yourself the way you are. If that’s a hard place to get to, rest tight in the knowledge that jealousy can be a useful tool for showing you your desire. This week you’ll translate the hot energy of envy into a plan for getting more of what you want out of life. 

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). It’s said that no tear falls in vain. For people experiencing grief, it’s a hard thing to believe, but once the sadness passes, it’s easy to see the truth. Releasing feelings helps clear the way to a new experience. Allowing yourself the full range of emotion this week will be an emotional refreshment. 

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll have challengers this week. They’re the ones who believe you’re a formidable opponent, or they’re your teammates determined to help you be your best. They’re the people who make you try a little harder and hang in there a little longer. You’ll exceed expectations because of these unlikely allies. 

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). “Messy” is a subjective term. That area of life that you find messy someone else would consider neat, indeed. Your perfect match may not agree on what qualifies as a mess, but one thing is certain: This person won’t mind getting messy with you, especially emotionally. Love and creativity are seldom tidy processes. 

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’ll set rules for yourself, and yourself retaliates with a “no way!” Because you’re you, you would think you would know what’s reasonable. But you don’t. You’re deeper and more complex than even you can understand. This week is an opportunity to get to know you better. It’s not selfish; it’s necessary.
