ARIES (March 21-April 19). Ruts are hard to break out of. It often takes a beat to recognize that you’re indeed in one and going nowhere fast. Then the natural first instinct is to keep doing what you’re doing, which only makes the rut deeper. Of course, it’s the radical turn that will get you out. You’ll never know until you try. This is your week to try. 

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Your vision will perfectly match up with the group vision. Your way of getting to that picture, well, that’s another story, and yours may not be the same as the version others would tell. You’ll have to let people know that just because you take advantage of an opportunity doesn’t mean you lack feeling for the one providing it. 

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Being around others is what will give you clarity on your own life, especially if the others are people you like and admire. To get specific about what you want, get near what you might want, and try to discern between the finer details. Keep in mind that some people take a very long time to get to know.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). What would you do with more love in your life? You think maybe you’d be better if you were surrounded by people who believe in you. The truth is: Duh, of course. That’s why your main mission this week is to contribute to the kind of receptive and worthy people who are able to see and draw out the best in others.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). People around you want to show you how much they like you. You should definitely accept the attention. Rejecting affection and praise is like turning down cake. It might be good for your waistline, but it will offend the giver. It’s better to accept the cake (or praise), take a few bites and then discreetly find the garbage can. 

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). What’s becoming more and more clear is that you are not entirely in charge like you thought you were. Therefore, you have nothing to lose by surrendering to the fates for a few hours or days just to see what happens. Let yourself drift on the waves of imagination, going where the tides tug. 

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Just when you are about to give up on being understood, the people you love find their way back to your wavelength once more. Good. There will be a beautiful and wide range of emotions to work through this week, and it will help to know you’re not alone. A family issue will be settled on Friday. 

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). When there is chaos around you, it is possible to turn your mind into a calm, safe, silent haven. When things are calm around you and your mind is the most chaotic thing going on, the challenge is harder. But you’re capable of achieving greater mental control this week. The benefits of doing so will be innumerable.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Some are uncomfortable with people, things and ideas that come from foreign worlds. You, on the other hand, crave diversity. You thrive on variety and thrill to surprise. The more out of your element you get this week the luckier you’ll be. Note: It is better to have a guide than not. 

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You start the week off on high speed. The trouble is, you’re going too fast to fully notice what is happening around you. Put on the brakes. While it’s a gift to have your caliber of ambition, you need to take stock of your position and environment from time to time so you can adjust your course if need be. 

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Extraordinarily talented people often come complete with tricky quirks and huge egos. That’s not a reason to avoid them. You’ll reap many benefits from aligning yourself with talented people regardless of how difficult to deal with they may be. What you learn will be well worth the inconvenience.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). No one can make another person happy. Happiness is self-generated. But efforts to create an environment conducive to happy feelings are often effective. This week, assume the other person really does want you to be happy, however challenged this person may be as to the best way to go about it.
