ARIES (March 21-April 19). You don’t have control over what you like. You may think, “If only I were interested in XYZ, I’d have more in common with so-in-so, or I’d be in with that group over there.” But wishing for other likes and interests only takes time away from finding your true likes and fascinations. This is a week to explore.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). To become masterful, you need good feedback. Find out the “why” and the “how” because it will make everything you practice a little easier when you know the reasoning behind it. Ultimately, though, it’s the practice that matters. Success will be a direct result of hundreds of repetitions of the same correct motions.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You need time away from the manufactured world this week. What can you get into that’s natural? Facing the elements will bring you joy as it exercises your body and spirit. Your time in nature will show you elegance and the efficiency of life uncomplicated by the projections and distortions of the human mind.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). On the Internet, you can follow your interests impulsively. Go anywhere without traffic or waiting in line. It’s how you’d want real life to be. Wasting time on the Internet is painless. Wasting time in real life is painful. The good thing about the inconveniences of real life is that they force you to prioritize and focus.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). They want to entertain you, but you are not easily entertained. You’ll dismiss generic efforts. The songs that thrill you, the stories that entice you, and all the things that make you laugh are so specific that the one who can get and hold your attention also steals your heart.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The same desire that feels so savage in its intensity is also a great organizer. When you want something badly enough, you figure out what you need to do to get it, and priorities quickly fall into place. If this isn’t happening by Wednesday, consider that you may not want it as much as you thought. Keep searching.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Believe in the unreal. Send your imagination forward. It will unfurl like a golden highway between what exists and what does not exist. It is your vision that bridges the gap, that makes things so. There is much that could happen and wouldn’t happen without your creativity.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). A convenient social life is a thing more rare than most people under 30 realize. Those who’ve been around longer often must actively arrange for time with friends. To them, it’s almost a hassle to plan some fun. This week, people of all ages click, connections happen naturally, and love is aloft. It’s worth celebrating.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). When people don’t know, they make a hypothesis based on what they do know. Accuracy depends on experience in the known world and a certain knack for projection that actually very few possess. So be extremely careful in choosing whom to listen to, follow or give any credence at all. Results will vary.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Some things you have to jump through hoops to qualify for, and pretty much that alone is what makes them worth having. Other things you qualify for by existing, and they are worth having because they remind you of the gift that is existence. Those are the things you want in your life this week, no hoops necessary.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You try, you fail, and you say, “OK, for real this time.” And it’s only real for a moment, apparently, because soon you’re right back where you started. What’s really important is that you don’t give up. Keep trying. It will get easier. Only the tenacious will know what it’s like on the other side. Let that be you.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’ll doubt your plans and fear that your creations are lame. The temptation to scrap your work and start over will be strong. Instead, press the “pause” button and do something else. Avoid drastic action. Yes, sometimes the creative person must destroy early attempts to move on to greatness. Not now, though.
