ARIES (March 21-April 19). Casual dalliances won’t interest you in the least this week. Your motto: All or nothing. You won’t invest yourself in a belief, project or relationship unless you feel in your bones that it’s right. The worth of every conviction consists precisely in the steadfastness with which it is held. — Jane Addams

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Those skilled at the fine art of argument know that one way to make your case bulletproof is to argue the opposing view. Perspective will be the key to solving many a problem this week. Your willingness to see things from different angles will ultimately be what sets you free. 

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). One habit of orderly humans is to put things back where they belong. This habit eliminates a lot of time wasted looking around for things. As simple as it sounds, it’s easier to do as most children do: make a mess and then walk away. Cleaning up and restoring order is a good metaphor for what you face this week. 

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Children on the playground aren’t the only ones who declare alliances, choosing one playgroup over another when there’s really no pressing reason to do so. You’re above this mentality. You’ll socialize and do business with a wide range of people without getting involved in the petty differences they have with one another. 

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It’s good to work hard as long as you’re doing so on your own accord or on behalf of the ones you love. If you’re slaving about in a Cinderella situation amid the spoiled and evil, your sweat and tears aren’t doing anyone any favors. Don’t wait for mice, birds or royalty to get you out of this. Break free. 

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Cameras don’t take beautiful pictures; photographers do. You have an eye for beauty, and you’ll take mental pictures to feed your hungry imagination. You’re putting something together that may take years to fully form. In the meantime, chasing your mind’s eye will lead you through extraordinary experiences.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Better to go to a friend in adversity than prosperity. You’ll also find it easier, as you are there to help, not to take. Of course, you never keep score. And yet, later, when you really do need something, you’ll be far more comfortable asking for it because of the efforts you make this week. 

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You have a cause worth promoting or a product that needs marketing. Asking for contact information from everyone you meet is not your style. And yet, if you get a little better at this, you’ll find out just how many people would love to be informed of what you’re doing and what you’re about.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Ponder this: In the current culture, “agree to terms” is a virtual button to be clicked even if you haven’t read a single line of the terms you’ve agreed to. Might there be other terms you’ve “clicked” in your real life that you didn’t fully consider or understand? Wanting something badly makes you rush past the terms.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Many of us would like to come across as “charming,” but few have what it takes. The selfless desire to make another person feel good is the essence of charm. This week, you’ll be inclined to focus on others without worrying about what’s in it for you. Hopefully, you’ll enjoy the attention that follows. 

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The group you’re in needs a leader. The person who’s officially leading isn’t necessarily the one. Behind-the-scenes leaders can be greatly effective. To find out who really is in charge, determine this: Who is the one everyone wants to talk to? (True leaders listen more than they talk.) 

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You can feel it when a person becomes distant, even if words and actions suggest otherwise. There’s a good and positive reason for this, so don’t let it bother you. It’s a function of someone growing up and exploring new vistas. Loved ones will come back around. Accept the ebb and flow of relationships.
