ARIES (March 21-April 19). The week features the chance to present to the group. Your desire is to add something of value or nothing at all. You’ll accomplish this aim either way. If you care to do the research and development, you’ll come up with something brilliant. And if you sit this round out, you’ll learn something, too. You can’t lose.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). A person at the bottom of a well looks up and sees the sky as a small circle. This image sums up something you’ve been going through. Forces beyond your control have limited your thought process. This week you’ll rise and see the possibilities that were always there. You’ll make the most of this realization.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The old “fake it ’til you make it” adage doesn’t work for you at all. As the sign of communication, your gift for accurately portraying the way you feel on the inside makes it extremely challenging to project any sense of confidence that you’re not experiencing. Luckily your self-esteem set-point is naturally on the high side.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Sometimes it feels like the sense of order that comes with adulthood is an imposition. You were happier when you weren’t as worried about the schedule. How important is it, really, that you hit all the mile markers along the way? This is the ideal week to loosen your grip. Don’t worry. You’ll still make the deadline.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The difference between a person’s private life and public life can be great. For instance, you’re more creative and quirky than you care to show most people. This week you might dare to show others the side of you that right now only your nearest and dearest are privy to.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). An African proverb suggests that things are more easily laid straight when they are green than when they are dry. Use this principle with the young learners around you. Try to set them right now while you have the most chance to make a difference in their lives.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Author and literary critic G.K. Chesterton said, “The poets have been mysteriously silent on the subject of cheese.” There’s something you’d like to celebrate in your own way this week, and so don’t hold back. Maybe you’ll be the first one, but you won’t be the only one.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). It’s personal inventory time. Everyone sees their own shortcomings, but instead of dwelling on them, give yourself some constructive criticism. Put it all down on a list. Include the overwhelming number of wonderful things about you. The enemy is that part of you that feels the need to complain.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Instead of pondering your last incarnation or dreaming about who you’ll be in the future, give your full attention and care to the magnificent being staring back at you from the mirror. This person will be your best friend this week. Sure, there will be other people around — but you’re the star.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Regarding your family, remember this: They won’t always be happy at the same time, and your attempts to make them all happy are completely futile. Still, you want to spoil them, and you will. Bonus: You’ll please your boss and deliver more than promised to your customers. Friday brings a financial win.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). This attitude of yours is not to be taken lightly. It could and will alter destiny. Because of your friendly encouragement, things happen that would not have happened otherwise. You will draw people out and give them the confidence to take risks they were afraid to take before. The world is different because of you.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The praise is coming to you this week. Say thank you and smile, even though you inwardly believe you are still very far from your goal. Truly, everything is starting to come together for you. As you celebrate the small victories along the way, you’ll believe more and more. This is happening!
