ARIES (March 21-April 19). Sir Winston Churchill said, “We make a living by what we get; we make a life by what we give.” This week you will focus on the care and benefits that come with being a friend, and the payoff will be immediate. You’ll feel better in your heart, and you’ll make better choices coming from that generous place. 

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). People show appreciation in different ways — some directly and some indirectly with the way they treat you, the things they do for you and the effort they make. Here’s a dying art: noticing interactions and responding gratefully, also known as manners. Sometimes this week it will feel like you’re single-handedly keeping them alive.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). When you’re out of your element, you grow. You appreciate this and often will push yourself past the comfort zone. One side effect will become prominent this week, though. At times it will feel like you’re putting quite a lot of energy into just being normal. 

CANCER (June 22-July 22). There’s a trap in this week’s cosmic makeup. It will be all too easy to victimize yourself in your own head. If this happens, consider the conveniences of everyday life. If you live in a house in which you can turn on a faucet and receive clean water, you are truly privileged. 

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Are you connected with another person, and do you feel like that person can speak for you? Co-dependency gets a bad reputation, but sometimes (like lately) it’s nice to have another person to navigate the rapids with you. And there will be rapids this week — mostly emotional. 

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). This week your energy is vibrant, though not consistent. As superhuman as you feel, you still require downtime to relax and recharge. On Friday, you’ll draw someone in with the intensity of your presence, your sparkling eyes and the gusto you add to the conversation. Be careful, heartbreaker!

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You may back off of a certain relationship this week, and it will be healthy for all — by giving more room, you let more light in. The perspective change will benefit everyone. In the later week, it will behoove you to seek wisdom, not information. The more you understand the better you will be understood. 

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Professional goals will lead you far from your comfort zone, but by the end of the week, you’ll have an entirely new and expanded comfort zone. From Wednesday through Saturday, you’ll spend many hours on a difficult task. Keep at it, because you’ll soon become masterful. 

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You have no desire to accumulate things, but you want the skills and knowledge that come with the pursuit. Your social season starts on Thursday. You like people, and people like you. Over the course of the weekend, you’ll turn strangers into friends.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Social grace is a talent you were born with, but it still needs to be honed. Practice on a date this week. Longtime loves will reignite the spark. If there’s someone you want to know better, reach out in conversation — or better yet dance together under the earth-sign moon this weekend. 

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). In the past, someone told you that you were being too sensitive, and yet this same sensitivity will lead to good fortune. A creative tool will enhance your experience. Maybe it’s a camera that takes pictures you’ll cherish for years to come or a GPS system that helps you confidently explore a new place. 

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). A special relationship will take the spotlight. You’ll interact with someone you feel a great affinity toward. You’ll do activities similar to those you’ve done before, and yet new emotions will surface. On Saturday, an open dialogue about your financial picture will bring you into harmony with your team.
