ARIES (March 21-April 19). The first key to change is realizing there’s something you would like to change. This may seem obvious, but it often isn’t. Some go years under the influence of low-grade unhappiness without opening their awareness that it’s not how life has to be. This week you’ll broaden your awareness and help yourself and others, too.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). People will not be upset for the reasons they think they are. The triggers of the moment are symptomatic of issues that are more deeply rooted. If you want to solve the problems, you’ll have to unearth the tangles below. You have a talent for finding the trouble source and getting rid of it once and for all.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your fear has more power over you than does the actual thing you fear. Therefore, the thing to wrestle and tame is on the inside. That doesn’t make it any easier to conquer. This week will bring you an angel in the form of a friend who really understands your kind of struggle and can help.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You have what can’t be purchased: class. It will make your way easier this week. This isn’t about your sophisticated taste or how you present yourself in different situations. Your good fortune is a byproduct of your natural inclination to do what’s for the greater good and get along gracefully in the world.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “The ancestor of every action is a thought.” This week’s actions are parented by thoughts that are far-out, free-flowing, colorful, even radical. These thoughts will be like hippie parents encouraging your highly creative response to the world. An artistic breakthrough is imminent.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Developing discipline will help you develop whatever else you want to. There are character traits that are so ingrained in you that it’s difficult to see how you could possibly have free will over them, and yet you suspect that you do. You’ll find leverage with yourself and empower the “boss inside” with new efficacy.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). There are so many exciting options, and the only thing stopping you is your own sense of what is appropriate. Push through the self-imposed limits. You have luck with the experimental process. Try on new behaviors, attitudes and thoughts. If you like the outcome, do it again. If you don’t, move on.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your words have even greater power than usual, so wield them with care. The written word will be especially impactful. Avoid indiscriminate texting and be extremely aware of everything you sign. Even your casual agreements will be taken quite seriously. This will all work in your favor as long as you stay mindful.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). When fun becomes more tedious than work, this is a sign that the group you go out with isn’t as fine a match as it once was. Making new friends takes time, boldness and enough intention to weather the ups and downs of learning people. If you start now, you’ll already be on your way to new adventures.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You seek new levels of self-sufficiency. Whatever you complained about before you now would like to be able to handle and provide for yourself, rendering all future complaints unnecessary. This isn’t about money; it’s about obtaining the skills and knowledge that will afford you autonomy.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). It’s tough to rewrite your programming, but you can do this. You’re strong and willing to change. Plus, an earth sign will help you. The kind of decisions you’ll be making this week will require you to keep making the same decision over and over until it’s no longer a conscious choice, but rather an automatic response.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Among Hollywood’s greatest divas, Bette Davis was as proud of her friends as she was her enemies. She even went so far as to suggest that anyone not daring enough to make enemies should get out of the business. She may have had a point. This week’s rivalry will bring out the very best in you.
