ARIES (March 21-April 19). If there’s a chance of getting what your appetite craves, you’ll feel hopeful, optimistic and adventurous. But if the odds are stacked against you, it will be difficult to keep up the cheer. Give yourself a shot at happiness by going where the odds are in your favor. It’s the perfect week to figure out where you belong.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Adversity is the best teacher, and this week it will teach you who you are and who your true friends are, too. Luckily, there will be but brief moments in the classroom of life, as most of your time will be spent in action, executing all you’ve learned already to the best of your ability.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). A change stirs up the system. Good — the system needed stirring. Of course, not everybody thought so. This shift will feel uncomfortable to many people at first, and controversy is inevitable. But ultimately, when the dust settles, it will be better for all.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You think differently than you did 15 years ago. It doesn’t make the former you wrong, nor does it make the current you right. Be compassionate as you look backward, and extend that same compassion to anyone around you who thinks differently. Life will settle into a peaceful groove.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). We learn to love by loving. There is no other way. Whatever is stopping you from that loving feeling, let it go. If you can’t let it go, at least put it in the “wait and see” file instead of the “definitely holding on to this for dear life” file. Life will unfold magically for those who are willing to soften their harder views.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The problem isn’t dire, and yet this conflict of interests does get uncomfortable. It boils down to this: Your loved ones want more together time, and you want more alone time. There’s no compromise in working this out. You need that alone time and must get it before you can bring anything of quality to together time.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Remember that complicated code you cracked many months ago? Now it’s so simple for you that it’s hard to believe there was ever a time you didn’t know how to do it. Another such “complicated” scenario will come up this week. Once you get the key, this code will unlock every time, and so trade frustration for diligence.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Look for the possible long-term effects of a choice, but if you can’t readily see it, take that as a sign that you need the wisdom that can only be gained through experience. In other words, act. Also, note: It’s not always the case, but in this week’s situation, applying the easy solution to a problem isn’t weak; it’s smart.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Life is mostly a maintenance problem these days. Whether it’s an appliance or a relationship misunderstanding, there’s no need to worry. Every broken thing has its moment for fixing. You’ll do something about it when you can. Until then, note what is working, and do your best to fully enjoy it.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). There’s much you’re trying to improve on this week. Try to be better, but if you don’t quite fulfill your own expectation of yourself, don’t punish yourself or wish you were any different from how you are. It is self-acceptance, not perfection, that will bring about the best outcome for all.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Though your ultimate mission is grand, it’s the small good deeds you do now — tipping the barista, letting the car into your lane, public smiles for no reason and the like — that will have a profound impact on the world. Your excellent karma will come full circle on Friday in a most pleasant fashion.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Be mindful of the minutes, and you’ll accomplish much. If you can take control of your time, you’ll have greater control over other things this week, like your finances and your personal life. It starts with acknowledging the tiny voice inside that speaks up about the activities that aren’t really worthy of your attention.
