ARIES (March 21-April 19). Friends are like fashions — most come and go with the seasons. There are but a few that never go out of style. Over the years these are the relationships that suffer wear and tear, yet they are somehow better for it. Cherish these relationships this week. They are the true treasures of your life.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). There’s a lot that won’t work out — most things, when you think about it. That’s why learning to set appropriate expectations is an art form — one that you’ll master this week. You’ve the courage to go forward even when you think it won’t work, and this will bring great things to your world.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Where do feelings come from? This week it will feel as though the source is very much outside yourself. Instead of generating feelings, it will feel as though feelings are something you catch, like a cold or a football. Environment will have a lot to do with it. There are some places where love is truly in the air.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). There’s a deep part of you that’s been waiting for permission to dance. This week will bring your chance. You’ll be attracted to uninhibited people who make you feel like it’s fine to just be you in whatever expression of that comes most naturally.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Everyone is filling a role and doing so in a unique way. Avoid situations where you feel the role is being made much more important than the way you play it. You’re one-of-a-kind. Those who can’t appreciate your individuality will eventually drain you of it. Embrace your originality.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll be a star this week, and yet you know in your heart that the world doesn’t revolve around any one person in particular. You’ll use your shining moment before the spotlight goes to the next player. Avoid those who have trouble sharing the attention, blending in when appropriate and working within the team.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). When lightning strikes, thunder claps through the air and resounds from the Earth. You’ll be the lightning this week. Make your move, and you’ll be more powerful and electric than you anticipated. You’ll elicit an immediate and impressive response from those around you. They might even overreact. Plan for that.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The opportunity is coming whether you are ready for it or not. Don’t let a lack of experience keep you from going for it. When the pressure is on, you’ll do your best. Whether or not that is enough to get what you want is not the point. Try. What you gain in the process will be of great value, so you can’t lose.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You like to help. In many cases the smiles you get in return are reward enough. This week, what you do for other people will somehow be easier to accomplish than what you do that’s strictly for you. But you still need to follow through on those selfish acts. Otherwise, you won’t have much to give next week.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You think in pictures, and your powers of visualization are even better than usual this week. Keep envisioning a version of success that has you feeling powerful, embracing challenges and yet still enjoying life with ease. Such a state may feel very far away from you now, but it is not as distant as it seems.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). This week it may feel as though even your complications have complications. The good news is this is nothing you can’t handle — an opportunity for you to shine, really. Something major and positive will come of this mid-week. After that, relaxation will be required. Get a massage, run a mile and breathe.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). How much good fortune is one person allowed? Also, is there such a thing as too much adventure? When it comes to luck and excitement, rest assured, you haven’t met your quota yet. Be voracious in your quest for fresh fun. Bonus: Friday brings the teacher you’ve been waiting for.
