ARIES (March 21-April 19). Going down the wrong path helps you learn what the right one is. And once you learn the right way, practice it. The repetition will build your confidence so you can go to the higher levels of mastery. When you’re sure of what you’re doing, you can commit your whole self and get the results of a champion. 

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Once upon a time, you were very impressed with a certain someone, but since then, time and exposure have rubbed off the sheen. This person is still impressive to others and enjoys the attention that comes with this dynamic. Keeping the relationship strong at this point may take more effort, but you’ll enjoy it, too. 

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). As the communication sign, you realize that there are times when the best conversationalist is the one who asks insightful questions, listens with full attention, laughs when appropriate and otherwise doesn’t say a whole lot. This strategy will make you the hit of a social encounter, and you’ll get a lucrative deal, too. 

CANCER (June 22-July 22). When you were younger, you didn’t have the awareness or skills to take care of people as well as you do now. If you’re wondering why you’re met with such appreciation and warmth this week, it’s because of the care you’ve learned to give. Now it’s effortless, automatic, just the natural way you operate. 

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). “Pick one thing and do it well,” they say when they see you whirling like a dervish between a dozen projects at once. They don’t understand that your creative mind gets bored when you stay too long on one thing. That is, unless the one thing is a deeply layered, multifaceted project such as the one you’re about to encounter. 

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). When you had limited resources, you felt you had to go with the sure thing. But now there are more choices available to you. Because of this, you can experiment. The experimentation helps you appreciate different aspects of choices you wouldn’t have considered before. This dynamic will mostly apply to your social life.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You want your team to do what they are supposed to do without being told to do it. It won’t always happen that way. Nagging won’t help. Doing it for them won’t work. You’ll have to use clever tactics to inspire them. You may feel like you’re being manipulative, but ultimately, getting this team in shape is good for everyone.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). A certain someone is slowly opening up to you, though you may not have a clue that it’s happening. That’s because those who strongly fear failure and rejection won’t show their feelings as readily as the emotionally brave. Be gentle with that person who isn’t giving you much feedback as to their feelings. 

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). No matter how much you love someone, you can love that person more when you have a unique life away from that person. It’s why you’ll spend some of the week cultivating an interest that has little connection to most of your friends and family. In some ways, you are truly and gloriously different from your clan.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Appreciate your friends for what they can do. It might not be what they say they will do for you. They have a tendency to exaggerate. In that circumstance, at least you can appreciate the heart that goes into it. So what if they can’t exactly deliver? They can deliver somewhat, and that’s pretty great. 

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You already know  what happens when you do the job you’ve been doing. But what about that unusual and intriguing project? Take a risk. No one, not even you, can accurately predict the results you’ll get after you dedicate yourself to this. You won’t know who you are until you see what you can do. 

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Two strong opinions inside you will argue over how you should spend your days. Opinion One says, “Pack in all of the fun possible.” Opinion Two waves a long list of relevant tasks in your face and says, “Be responsible.” A day or two of sheer fun will satisfy One enough to let Two continue unimpeded.
