ARIES (March 21-April 19). No matter how you rehearse an interaction in your head, you won’t be able to control the way it actually plays out. The environment and even your own behavior can be unpredictable — that’s the delight of it. Socializing will be spontaneous and often surprising this week. Enjoy the you who emerges from this. 

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Hindsight may be 20/20, but it’s also as romanticized as an Instagram picture now. You may see the past very clearly, and yet the light is made more golden, and the edges are purposely blurred for effect in the theater of your mind. If you want to see the present that way, too, all you have to do is apply your artistry to it. 

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). What’s in a name? Names provide people with a reason to pay attention or to be dismissive. Names are a part of the first impression. Names provide meaning and suggest how things should be handled. So when you are naming things, and you will be this week, go thoughtfully. 

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Networking is part of the fun of the week, and you’ll build the number and quality of your relationships. As social as you are, sometimes this still makes you slightly nervous. Don’t worry! You’ll be effective because you know to honor the other person before advancing any kind of personal agenda. 

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Altruistic motives are the most suspicious kind, as evil has a tendency to wear them as a disguise. You’d rather know about someone’s selfish motive than be stuck wondering about the reality of a situation. This week, look deeper into situations and figure out where everyone is really coming from.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Choices can be amended. Those choices that weren’t so bad but weren’t so good either are the hardest ones to amend because they tend to go under the radar. Declare that you want only the best for yourself, and then step back and notice what shows up as less than optimal. Once you recognize it, you can change it. 

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You don’t need a book, coach or program to tell you where to go next. Your best teacher this week will be your own past. Recall your experiences and the lessons you learned. The decisions you make about how you want to live going forward will resonate with others who are headed in the same direction.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). People may ask you too many questions this week, but it’s not because they are being nosy. They want to be close to you. Who could blame them? Your quick physical and social reflexes will add brightness to your environment. Whatever your age, people will think you are younger. 

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). When a behavior becomes a habit, it becomes less of a sensual experience. The task gets easier and takes less energy. Being used to the motion of it, your attention goes to other things. (This is why you get such excellent ideas while driving or doing dishes.) Turn tedious health-boosting behaviors into habits. 

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Because you are so used to doing what’s appropriate and taking care of the others around you, you sometimes lose track of your own needs. Knowing yourself can be more difficult than it seems. What do you do when you’re anxious? Let that clue lead you to better understand and care for yourself.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You slip into problem-solving mode this week. The problems are mostly group problems, and there will be many varying opinions about what’s best for all. You’ll be intent on making sure the others involved feel satisfied with the solutions, even if that means you have to compromise on what you get out of this. 

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Work that is taken on with good intentions might be executed poorly by those who lack experience. This dynamic can be avoided by teaming seasoned performers with energetic newcomers. Depending on the task, you could fall into either category. Make smart partnerships, and you’ll also make money and friends.
