ARIES (March 21-April 19). One way to avoid the very common tendency to eat and/or drink away difficult feelings is to agree to go ahead and feel them. It may be unpleasant, but the cosmic omens this week suggest that if you’re willing to endure emotional pain, it’s likely to hurt only for a very short time before it’s processed and gone.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’re there for your friends, and yet there’s a point at which you can’t stand to hear any more complaining. As for you, it’s lucky not to complain at all this week, even to your closest people. If you like something well enough, say it’s good. If you don’t, say it’s interesting or call it a “learning experience.” That’s class.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). To put it plainly, you’re growing tired of people telling you what to do. Advertisements, wall art with words, television, Internet, teachers, family, friends all offering suggestions. It gets old, especially when you already have a clear vision, a solid moral compass and strong ideas about how to get what you want.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You often prefer to go under the radar, operate within the group, support others and help them to shine. It’s because you’re secure, connected to the people around you, and not looking to attract attention. That doesn’t mean you don’t know how to make an entrance. You can turn on the dazzle anytime you want.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It is said that if you look at beauty long enough, you will grow used to it and no longer see it as anything special. That’s why models need a new look for every picture. You’ll change it up this week, too, keeping things fresh and exciting. You’ll do it for you, but you won’t mind the extra attention from people around you.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You don’t expect yourself to be good at things on the first try or even to like them. Who likes doing what they are not good at? Your reasonable expectations will make you a quick learner. You’ll soon enjoy every aspect of this new endeavor, and it will all be a credit to your patience and persistence.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Try as you might to be reasonable, sometimes that’s a trickier thing than it sounds. What about when your higher mind decides something and your lower mind issues a “veto”? It’s a situation you’ll find yourself in more than once this week. The struggle between higher, lower and all the minds in between will be epic.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You have big goals — so big, in fact, that you may feel overwhelmed. Start where you are. Trust that where you are is a good place. Even if you stayed right there, you’d be in a good place. Ambition is overrated. It’s good that you have it — just know that it’s not bigger than you. You and your ambitions are equals.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The thing is, if you felt like it, you could bring that certain person to their knees. You have enough of an emotional arsenal to level the one who has done so much in the past to keep you down. You won’t pull the trigger, though. Compassion will rule. You are bigger than the situation.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Something that happens in a moment of weakness could have a domino effect on the rest of the scene. Therefore, your job is to prevent having a moment of weakness. The best way is to make sure you get plenty of rest and proper nutrition. Also, avoid the situations you know are going to be stressful.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your cosmic gift of the week is a very generous ratio of effort to results. A minimum amount of effort will often accomplish the maximum result, so start with small gestures. Also, limit the number of people you ask for advice, as hearing too many opinions will cause you to needlessly stall.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You are approachable, and that is a huge asset. The best part is that the kindness and warmth you radiate require no effort from you at all. It’s naturally who you are. The people who are moved to come over and talk to you will have something of value to share. Act on it.
