ARIES (March 21-April 19). There will be a moment in which you observe the trouble ahead and have the chance to turn back. Ultimately, your decision will come down to your commitment to your original destination. How badly do you need to get where you’re going? Often, the only way out of difficulty is through it. 

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’ll feel freer inside of a plan this week. Unstructured meetings will bother you. You’ll prefer to go by the agenda, and when there isn’t one, you’ll decide what it should be before you begin. Also, you’ll prefer projects that include specific directions and relationships that are clearly defined. 

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). To deliver on expectation most of the time is admirable. There’s a point at which it will also become boring. Liven things up on Thursday and Friday. A topsy-turvy approach will bring pleasing results. What if you did the opposite of what you think the solution requires? 

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Observe the strengths of others, and align your requests accordingly wherever possible this week. Know that it won’t always be possible to find a comfortable fit. What’s best for us may not be what comes naturally, but the struggle and stretch are what will make us better. 

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The paradigm of service is something you don’t think about much, perhaps because it’s the way you live your life. What some consider generous you consider just what people do. But people don’t — not always, not usually — and that’s the point. (SET ITAL) You (END ITAL) do. And you’ll be recognized for it. 

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You like to be around people who look good and dress well, but it doesn’t substitute for having a purpose in life. When it comes down to it, you’re deeper, and because of this you’ll prioritize your social calendar accordingly. You’ll derive great pleasure from this week’s interactions. 

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Bright emotional skies return on Wednesday. Until then, either keep your head up and feign confidence, or, if you’re feeling small, don’t be afraid to stay in, rest and take care of yourself. Sometimes all that’s needed is for you to regain your strength. You can’t always do that by forcing yourself to carry on as usual. 

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You realize it’s not always enough to do good work and get along. Making your mark means you have to pull into the lead and do better work than anyone around you, at least for a time. With great concentration, personal will and a very original plan, you’ll prove yourself this week. 

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Your experience will be influenced strongly by the environments you visit this week — what they are and also the potential you see in them. What could they be with a little help from you? For less than pretty environments, close your eyes and sharpen your imagination.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Don’t rely on other people to validate or criticize your work this week, because it’s very specific to who you are and what your priorities are at this time in your life. It’s time to get a little bit selfish about what you’re doing. If you’re proud of your work and you enjoy it, that’s what’s most important. 

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Sometimes people believe what their friends tell them. Usually they believe what they tell themselves. Believing the truth is beside the point. This week you will try to filter out the outside noise and the inside noise alike to get to the whisper of truth that’s been floating through it the whole time. 

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The difference between ridiculousness and ordinary life is in the eye of the beholder. Right now you’re seeing that something in the normal routine is exceedingly silly. Should you call it out or let it amuse you a few days longer? Only you can answer that question.
