ARIES (March 21-April 19). There will be instances this week that feel like remembering a place you’ve never been. The dynamic is eerie, but don’t worry too much about it. No matter how long you ponder the nature of existence, you won’t come up with definitive answers. You have better things to do with your time — like enjoy it!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You will get a more solid sense of your true potential when you stop judging yourself based on what you are good at or not so good at. Being good at something is beside the point. Instead, focus on progress. Are you getting better? How well are you doing compared to yesterday? Last week? Last year?
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Many people work very hard to become financially successful, but it takes more than hard work to manifest abundance. Congruence is the key. When all parts of your life are aligned in the same direction, that’s when the real momentum will start to build. This week, pinpoint incongruence and root it out.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You are developing quite a list of things you want to try. Just be aware that the experts often make things look easy that have, in fact, taken long hours of hard work to perfect. Stop expecting yourself to get it right the first time. When you recognize bad choices in time to make better ones, give yourself credit for it.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You don’t like to give your moods too much sway over your schedule because you prefer to make decisions based on your overall vision of your life, not on the moment-to-moment minutiae of emotions. However, it’s wonderful when a string of good moods lifts you through the work of the latter week. It’s like your heart has wings.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You have limitations that you feel duty-bound to outgrow, and then there are limitations you are better off respecting. Knowing the difference takes wisdom. You don’t shy away from goals just because they will push you and you’ll feel uncomfortable in the process. Deep down, you know what’s worth doing.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). In order to be creative, it helps to have a high tolerance for boredom. Many of the tasks necessary to become great in the arts and sciences are repetitive and require deep wells of patience. Also, boredom allows room for reflection. This week you’ll discover and develop yourself by moving toward the stillness.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Try not to make assumptions about people. Just because a person has something doesn’t mean he or she feels good about it, appreciates it or is even remotely confident in it. When you go forward with compassion, realizing that you have no idea how others feel, you will make connections and create understanding.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You have a starring role in someone’s thoughts this week, and this person’s casting of you may be a bit unrealistic. Still, you can have fun stretching yourself into the part as long as it’s not too far from who you want to be. The story gets more interesting when you make plans or take on a project with this person.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Whatever it is you feel you lack, chances are you don’t need it. Feeling successful isn’t a result of having it all. Confidence means getting comfortable with the potential for feeling hurt, embarrassed, rejected and at a loss. Growth happens when you accept that potential and go for the win anyway.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Handling criticism well requires maturity and perspective. If you’re reading this, chances are you’re a human being and thus, by nature, a fallible creature. When others point out what they think you did wrong and offer suggestions for improvement this week, it’s a stellar opportunity to learn and grow.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). When you make productivity your goal, you may be cutting yourself off from the real pleasure inside this week. The goal of being present (instead of productive) in the moment will result in shining, tender and playful times. Concentrate on being instead of doing.
