ARIES (March 21-April 19). Your rules and standards are right for you, but you should know that there’s someone around you who won’t be able to abide by them. Your best bet is to keep on being the example of the change you want to see in the world. By concentrating there, your natural charisma will influence others for the better.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). We all have the same 24 hours to use each day, though it doesn’t go by the same way for any two people. Your time will seem to rush and elongate, freeze and skip throughout this week. The elasticity will allow you to accomplish in one week what you couldn’t in a whole month earlier this year.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). I guarantee you have more of all the good stuff than you are currently using — freedom, love and creativity. A wise part of you realizes that “more” is not always better. The true luxuries of life often come from unpredictable sources. In the end you’ll owe your success to the limits and obstacles of this week.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). In the Renaissance era, profound sadness was glamorized as a yearning for the great and eternal. These days, it’s treated as an illness. This week brings artistic pursuits. Just know that you will be no more creative as a sad person than you are as a happy person. Do the things that bring joy into your life.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your influence grows through the week. You’ll make an impression on co-workers, family and the general public. You’ll be the catalyst that has them giving more and/or differently than they would have if they didn’t know you. You’ll bring attention to the things that matter to you and make a difference.  

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Sometimes you give so fully to the people around you that you don’t even notice you have needs, too! Your needs don’t disappear just because you’re ignoring them. They go underground, waiting for a moment to resurface. If you acknowledge these needs before they bury themselves you’ll be better off.  

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). This week you’ll write your own fairytale. Details will matter, especially the atmosphere, which influences the course of love more than most people think. The average person discounts the effects of good lighting on relationships, but not you. Your attuned aesthetic sense will contribute to an idyllic scenario.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ll enjoy going to work this week. Your colleagues will facilitate your goals both professional and personal. Later you’ll go back and help the people who have helped you. Now is the time for accepting what you’re given and taking notes so you’ll know what to say when it’s time for public recognition of these gifts.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’re able to categorize many things about your life this week, including your feelings, priorities and future plans. Your knack for defining and organizing the intangible is truly special. You’ll attract admirers. You could, in the near future, become a teacher. 

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). This week comes complete with a mission, a sense of your own destiny and the fuel to drive you toward it. Maybe you won’t be making history, but repeating it successfully is challenge enough right now. This is a week to keep on keeping on. Your stellar attitude will carry you toward a brighter tomorrow.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The thing that contributes most to your success this week? Your ability to focus on one task at a time. There are efficiency-related reasons why switching too readily between tasks is not a very good option. Where you can, work until you’re finished, and keep your process as simple as possible.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Here’s how to reduce stress at home: Stick to the plan. When your wake-up time, meals, preparations for bed and such follow a method or routine, you’ll have more time to spend with the ones you love, and you’ll spend it pleasurably. Somehow, being organized will take the pressure off.
